HELPS word-Studies

Cognate: 1142 daímōn (a feminine noun) – a demon, i.e. a fallen angel. See 1139 /diamonizomai ("demonized") and 1140 /daimónion ("little demon").

[This term occurs more often in the Textus Receptus (TR) than the later editions of the critical text. See for example Rev 16:14, 18:2. Whereas 1140 (daimónion) emphasizes the evil nature of fallen angels, 1142 (daímōn) may stress the pervasive presence of demons in the world.]
