Commentary on the
Book of Enoch, Chapter 9:1-4.


The Intercession of the Angels on Behalf of Mankind
9:1  And then
Michael, Uriel, Raphael, and Gabriel looked down from heaven and saw much blood
          being shed upon the earth, and all lawlessness being wrought upon the earth.
9:2  And they said one to another: ‘The earth made without inhabitant cries the voice of their
          crying up to the gates of heaven.
9:3  And now to you, the holy ones of heaven, the souls of men make their suit, saying, “Bring
          our cause before the Most High.”’
9:4  And they said to
Yehuveh of the ages: ‘Yehuveh of Yehuveh, Elohim of elohims, King of
          kings and Elohim of the ages, the throne of Thy glory unto all the generations of the ages,
          and Thy name holy and glorious and blessed unto all the ages!

Seven benevolent angels are named in Enoch 20:1-8:  “And these are the names of the holy angels who watch. 2  Uriel . . . who is over the world and over Tartarus. 3  Raphael . . . who is over the spirits of men. 4  Raguel . . . who takes vengeance on the world of the luminaries. 5  Michael . . . to wit, he that is set over the best part of mankind and over chaos. 6  Saraqâêl . . . who is set over the spirits, who sin in the spirit. 7  Gabriel . . . who is over Paradise and the serpents and the Cherubim. 8  Remiel . . . whom Elohim set over those who rise.”
        Of these seven only
Michael [Daniel 10:13, 21; 12:1; (Jude 1:9;) Revelation 12:7] and Gabriel [Daniel 8:16, 9:21; (Luke 1:19, 26)] are mentioned in the currently-accepted Scriptures.
