1 Peter 5:8-9

New International Version (NIV)

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy ‘the devil’ [ha-shod or ha-shed: the-malignant (like a cancer), the-desolation, the-destruction, etc..] prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to ‘devour’ [bala’: destroy, spend up, eat up, etc..]. Resist ‘him’ [ha-qrats: the-accuser, the-slanderer, etc..], standing firm in ‘the faith’ [’emuwnah: set-office, truth, etc..], because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of ‘sufferings’ [k’eb: adversity, grief, etc..].

Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:


  • Shed: 7700 shed shade from 7736; a doemon (as malignant):–devil.

  • Shod: 7701 shod shode or showd (Job 5:21) {shode}; from 7736; violence, ravage:–desolation, destruction, oppression, robbery, spoil(-ed, -er, – ing), wasting.

Devour: 1104 bala` baw-lah’ a primitive root; to make away with (specifically by swallowing); generally, to destroy:–cover, destroy, devour, eat up, be at end, spend up, swallow down (up).

Him: 7170 qrats ker-ats’ (Aramaic) corresponding to 7171 in the sense of a bit (to “eat the morsels of” any one, i.e. chew him up (figuratively) by slander[-er]):–+ accuse[-er].

Faith: 530 ’emuwnah em-oo-naw’); or (shortened) >emunah {em-oo-naw’ feminine of 529; literally firmness; figuratively security; morally fidelity:–faith(-ful, -ly, -ness, (man)), set office, stability, steady, truly, truth, verily.
