Satan

Job 1:6

1:6 Satan. This is the Bible’s earliest identification of Satan by name, assuming the traditional antiquity of the book of Job (compare I Chronicles 21:1). The name Satan means “accuser” or “adversary,” and he is “the accuser of our brethren” (Revelation 12:10); this recorded attack on Job is typical of Satan’s attacks. Note also that, despite his primeval rebellion and fall (Ezekiel 28:13-17), he was still able to go among the other sons of God, to make his accusations before God.
