19 You say you believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe that and tremble.4 [realize, James was writing to Jewish believers of the Father, the Word (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit being one spirit, and without conflict to — Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one! Deu 6:4. So James is in effect saying, "you say you believe in Jesus, you do well, the demons do too, but they tremble at his name in fear — do you?" And the demons do believe, fear, tremble, and beg "the Son of the Most High God," as recorded in the Bible.]
28 Now when he had come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, two men met him who were possessed with demons, coming out of the tombs and being so threatening that no man would pass by their way.
29 And behold, they cried out, saying, "What have we to do with you, Jesus, Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the appointed time?"
23 Now there was a man with an unclean spirit in their synagogue, and he cried out,
24 Saying: "Leave us alone; what have we to do with you, you Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know you who you are, the Holy One of God."2
2 And when he got out of the boat, a man came out of the tombs with an unclean spirit,
7 And cried with a loud voice, saying, "What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore you by God, that you do not torment me."
33 Now in the synagogue there was a man who had a foul spirit of a demon; and he cried out with a loud voice,
34 Saying, "Leave us alone! What have we to do with you, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know you who you are — the Holy One of God."

15 And the evil spirit answered and said, "Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?"
