the Week of Proper 20 / Ordinary 25
Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
This word signifies a Destroyer. As such, it is given to the apostate angel of the bottomless pit, and very properly suits him. His whole pursuit, in scouring the earth, is, we are told, as "a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour." (See Revelation 9:11; Rev 1:1-20. See Devil. See Satan.)
