And one says of a strong-spirited horse, إِِنَّهُ لَيَنْزُو بَيْنَ شَطَنَيْنِ [Verily he leaps between two ropes, or long ropes, &c.]: a saying applied as a prov. to him who exults, or exults greatly, or excessively, and behaves insolently and ungratefully, and is strong. (TA.) An Arab of the desert described a horse (S, Msb) that did not become abraded in the sole of his hoof (so in a copy of the S) by saying, كَأَنَّهُ شَيْطَانٌ فِى أَشْطَانٍ [As though he were a devil in ropes, or long ropes, &c.].

ثُمَّ يُلْقَى فِى السِّجْنِ وَالأَغْلَالِ
” [Whatever bad one disobeyed him, he bound him in irons; then he was cast into the prison and the shackles for the neck and hands]. (S, TA.) شَيْطَانٌ ذ a word of well-known meaning [i. e. A devil; and with the article ال, the devil, Satan]: (S, K:) any that is excessively, or inordinately, proud or corrupt or unbelieving or rebellious, or that is insolent and audacious in pride and in acts of rebellion, of mankind, and of the jinn, or genii, and of beasts; (A'Obeyd, S, Msb, K;) as is shown in relation to the first and second of these by what is said in the Kur vi. 112, and ii. 13 and 96: (TA:) the ن is radical, (S, Msb, TA,) the word being of the measure فَيْعَالٌ, from شَطَنَ, (Msb, TA,) signifying “ he was, or became, distant, or remote, ” (TA,) or signifying “ he was, or became, remote, or far, from the truth, and from the mercy of God; ” (Msb;) as is indicated by the pl. شَيَاطِينُ; [for] the reading of El-Hasan in the Kur xxvi. 210, الشَّيَاطُونَ, is anomalous, [like بَسَاتُونَ for بَسَاتِينُ,] and is said by Th to be a mistake: (TA:) or, as some say, the ن is augmentative, (S, Msb, TA, *) and the ى is radical, so that the word is of the measure فَعْلَان, (Msb,) from شَاطَ, aor. يَشِيطُ, (Msb, TA,) signifying “ it was, or became, null, void, of no account, ” and the like, and “ it burned, ” or “ became burnt, ” (Msb,) or signifying “ he burned with anger: ” but the former opinion is the more common: (TA:) [in the Kur, the word is always perfectly decl.; and so it is said to be by SM, in art. شيط of the TA; unless used as a proper name: but J says,] if you make it to be of the measure فَيْعَال from تَشَيْطَنَ said of a man, [or rather because they say of a man تشيطن,] you make it perfectly decl.; but if you make it to be from شَيَّطَ [“ he burned ” a thing], you make it imperfectly decl., because it is of the measure فَعْلَان. (S.) ― -b2- Also The serpent: (S, K:) or a certain species of serpents; (Fr, S, TA;) having a mane, of foul aspect: or, as some say, a slender, light, or active, serpent. (TA.) ― -b3- Respecting the saying in the Kur [xxxvii. 63], طَلْعُهَا كَأَنَّهُ رُؤُوسُ الشَّيَاطِينِ [Its fruit is as though it were the heads of the شياطين], Fr says that there are three ways in which it may be explained: one is, that the طلع is likened to the heads of the شياطين [meaning devils] in respect of foulness, or ugliness, because these are described as foul, or ugly: (S:) or it is likened to the evil in disposition of the jinn, because these are imagined as foul, or ugly: Zj says, in explaining it, that one says of a thing deemed foul, or ugly, كَأَنَّهُ وَجْهُ شَيْطَانٍ [as though it were the face of a devil], and كَأَنَّهُ رَأْسُ شَيْطَانٍ [as though it were the head of a devil]; for though the شيطان is not seen, he is conceived in the mind as the foulest, or ugliest, of things: (TA:) the second is, that [the meaning is foul, or ugly, serpents; for] the Arabs apply the name شيطان to a sort of serpents, having a mane, foul, or ugly, in the head and face: (S, TA: *) the third is, that a certain foul, or ugly, plat is named رُؤُوسُ الشَّيَاطِينِ; (S, TA;) which is expl. in the K only as meaning a certain plant. (TA.) ― -b4- شَيْطَانُ الفَلَا [lit. The devil of the waterless deserts] means (assumed tropical:) thirst. (K.) ― -b5- شَيْطَانٌ signifies also (assumed tropical:) Any blamable faculty, or power, [or propensity,] of a man. (Er-Rághib, TA.) One says, رَكِبَهُ شَيْطَانُهُ i. e. (assumed tropical:) [His anger got the ascendency over him; or] he was, or became, angry. (TA.) And نَزَعَ شَيْطَانَهُ (assumed tropical:) He plucked out his pride. (TA.) ― -b6- Also, [probably as being likened to a serpent,] (assumed tropical:) A mark made with a hot iron in the upper part of the haunch of a camel, perpendicularly, upon the thigh, extending to the hock; (K, TA;) from the “ Tedhkireh ” of Aboo-'Alee; (TA;) likewise called ↓ مُشَيْطَنَةٌ . (AZ, K, TA.) الشَّيْطَانِيَّةُ ذ A certain sect of the extravagant zealots of [the schismatics called] the شِيعَة; so named from [their founder] شَيْطَانُ الطَّاقِ, (TA,) an appellation of Mohammad Ibn-En-Noaman. (K and TA in art. طوق.) مُشَاطِنٌ ذ One who draws out the bucket from the well بِشَطَنَيْنِ, (K, TA,) i. e. with two ropes. (TA.) مُشَيْطَنَةٌ ذ : see شَيْطَانٌ, last sentence.
