Does Satan Know The Bible

Yes, Satan knows the Bible well. He is so well versed that he quoted a passage from Bible and asked Jesus to test God. The following excerpt shows Satan asking Jesus to prove that he is the son of God and putting his Father to the test:

Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the temple's highest point. "If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down. It is written: "'He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you in their hands so that you will not strike your foot against a stone."
-Matthew 4:5-6

Of course, Jesus was not swayed by Satan's words and replied that it is also written in the Bible not to test the Father.
