A question for Jewish people. Do you believe in the Devil?


I mean in the way that Christians do. I know that satan comes from Hebrew and means simply 'adversary'. I also know that devil comes from Greek: diabolos, and means simply 'accuser' or 'slanderer'. I know, also, that the name Lucifer, as used in the Old Testament, is a total misnomer and was probably a reference to an Assyrian king (Tiglath Pilesser the Third). So - do you believe in satan as a supernatural enemy of the Hebrew God? I ask this question with genuine interest.
