Vocabulary of the Greek NT

a Grecized transliteration of the Aramaic סָטָנָא, meaning originally ";one lying in ambush for,"; and hence as a proper name ";the adversary,"; ";the accuser"; : cf. for the development of the Jewish belief EB s.v., Bousset Die Religion des Judentums.2 (1906), p. 382 ff., also Hart James, p. 98 f.

In the magical incantation P Par 574.1238 (iii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 113), Jesus the Christ is adjured to drive forth the devil from a man until this unclean demon of Satan—π ἀκάθαρτος ν δαίμων πι σαδανᾶς —shall flee before him. For the corresponding adj. cf. P Lond V. 1731.11 (A.D. 585) where a divorce is said to have taken place κατὰ διαβου (= ο)λικὴν καὶ σατανικὴν ἐνέργειαν.
