the most powerful evil spirit, in the Christian religion
"what the devil"
"the deuce with it"
"the dickens you say"
"he chased the young hellions out of his yard"
"Mosquitoes buzzing in my ear really bothers me"
"It irritates me that she never closes the door after she leaves"
Black as the devill, and as treacherous.

The devil appears himself, Armed and accoutred, horns and hoofs and tail!

Who the devil do you think gave it to me?

Devil take the hindmost (a motto of selfish competition). Give the Devil his due. Needs must when the Devil drives. Talk of the Devil (and he is bound to appear) (said when someone arrives just after being mentioned). The Devil can quote Scripture for his own ends. The Devil finds work for idle hands to do. The Devil is not so black as he is painted. The Devil looks after his own.
