Ah! (Ea). An interjection frequent in the Attic poets, but rare in prose. Apparently second person singular imperative of eaw, to permit. It is expressive of wonder, fear, indignation. Here it amounts to a diabolical screech. For the rest of the verse see discussion on "Mr 1:24" and see also "Mt 8:29". The muzzle (pimo) occurs literally in 1 Timothy 1:11 Corinthians 9:9, 1Ti_5:18 1 Corinthians 5:18 , and metaphorically here and Mark 1:25 ; Mark 4:39 ; Matthew 22:12 .
