And the enemy who sowed them is the Devil,a and the harvest is the end of the world, and the reapers are angels. Bible
“Devil” is a transliteration of the Greek word, diabolos, which literally means “Slanderer.”

“Devil.” The Greek word is diabolos (#1228 διάβολος), which literally means “Slanderer,” but diabolos gets transliterated into English as our more familiar name, “the Devil.” Slander is so central to who the Devil is and how he operates that one of his primary names is “the Slanderer.” [For more information on the names of the Devil, see Appendix 14: “Names of the Devil”].
