When the devil cannot come, he will send
This page is about the saying "When the devil cannot come, he will send"
The implication is that the devil is very persistent. He will always find a way to tempt us. If the devil cannot bring temptation to us himself, he will find someone else to bring it.
devil (noun) = (in Jewish and Christian belief, usually "the Devil") the chief evil spirit or Satan | send (verb) = cause (someone or something) to go (somewhere)
