Etymology : English diablerie is a borrowing from French diablerie ?mischief,? from Old French diablerie, deablerie ?an act inspired by the devil, sorcery.? French diable comes from Late Latin diabolus ?the devil? (in the Vulgate and church fathers), from Greek di?bolos ?slanderer; enemy, Satan? (in the Septuagint), ?the Devil? (in the Gospels). Diablerie entered English in the 17th century.
