Matthew 16:23

But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get you behind me, Satan: you are an offense unto me: for you consider not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
All Commentaries on Matthew 16:23 Go To Matthew 16

Hilary of Poitiers

AD 368
The Lord, knowing the suggestion of the craft of the devil, says to Peter, “Getthee behind me;” that is, that he should follow the example of His passion; butto him by whom this expression was suggested, He turns and says, “Satan, thouart an offence unto me.” For we cannot suppose that the name of Satan, and thesin of being an offence, would be imputed to Peter after those so great declarations of blessedness and power that had been granted him.
