Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 12:9

_ _ that old serpent — alluding to Genesis 3:1, Genesis 3:4.

_ _ Devil — the Greek, for “accuser,” or “slanderer.”

_ _ Satan — the Hebrew for “adversary,” especially in a court of justice. The twofold designation, Greek and Hebrew, marks the twofold objects of his accusations and temptations, the elect Gentiles and the elect Jews.

_ _ worldGreek, “habitable world.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 12:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 12:9

And the great dragon was cast out — It is not yet said, unto the earth — He was cast out of heaven; and at this the inhabitants of heaven rejoice. He is termed the great dragon, as appearing here in that shape, to intimate his poisonous and cruel disposition. The ancient serpent — In allusion to his deceiving Eve in that form. Dragons are a kind of large serpent. Who is called the Devil and Satan — These are words of exactly the same meaning; only the former is Greek; the latter, Hebrew; denoting the grand adversary of all the saints, whether Jews or gentiles. He has deceived the whole world — Not only in their first parents, but through all ages, and in all countries, into unbelief and all wickedness; into the hating and persecuting faith and all goodness. He was cast out unto the earth — He was cast out of heaven; and being cast out thence, himself came to the earth. Nor had he been unemployed on the earth before, although his ordinary abode was in heaven.
