Etymology

The English word DEVIL is distantly related to diabolos, the Greek translation of the HEBREW word, śāṭān (see Job 1:6 in the HEBREW Bible and in the Septuagint). The Greek diabolos means “slanderer, accuser,” whereas Hebrew śāṭān means “adversary, accuser.” Other names in the Book of Mormon for the DEVIL include SATAN and LUCIFER.
