           the Tempter, Prince of Darkness]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Satan
    adversary; accuser. When used as a proper name, the Hebrew word
    so rendered has the article "the adversary" (Job 1:6-12; 2:1-7).
    In the New Testament it is used as interchangeable with
    Diabolos, or the devil, and is so used more than thirty times.
      He is also called "the dragon," "the old serpent" (Rev. 12:9;
    20:2); "the prince of this world" (John 12:31; 14:30); "the
    prince of the power of the air" (Eph. 2:2); "the god of this
    world" (2 Cor. 4:4); "the spirit that now worketh in the
    children of disobedience" (Eph. 2:2). The distinct personality
    of Satan and his activity among men are thus obviously
    recognized. He tempted our Lord in the wilderness (Matt.
    4:1-11). He is "Beelzebub, the prince of the devils" (12:24). He
    is "the constant enemy of God, of Christ, of the divine kingdom,
    of the followers of Christ, and of all truth; full of falsehood
    and all malice, and exciting and seducing to evil in every
    possible way." His power is very great in the world. He is a
    "roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour" (1 Pet. 5:8). Men are
    said to be "taken captive by him" (2 Tim. 2:26). Christians are
    warned against his "devices" (2 Cor. 2:11), and called on to
    "resist" him (James 4:7). Christ redeems his people from "him
    that had the power of death, that is, the devil" (Heb. 2:14).
    Satan has the "power of death," not as lord, but simply as
    executioner.
