|Commentary on the
Book of Enoch, Chapter 20:1-8.
Names and Functions of the Seven Archangels
20:1 And these are the names of the holy angels who watch.
20:2 Uriel, one of the holy angels, who is over the world and over Tartarus.
20:3 Raphael, one of the holy angels, who is over the spirits of men.
20:4 Raguel, one of the holy angels, who takes vengeance on the world of the luminaries.
20:5 Michael, one of the holy angels, to wit, he that is set over the best part of mankind
and over chaos.
20:6 Saraqâêl, one of the holy angels, who is set over the spirits, who
sin in the spirit.
20:7 Gabriel, one of the holy angels, who is over Paradise and the serpents and the Cherubim.
20:8 Remiel, one of the holy angels, whom Elohim set over those who rise.
20:2 “Uriel [is] the holy angel . . . over the world and over Tartarus.” Tartarus, potentially from the Hebrew entry 8446, tuwr, a primary root meaning “to meander,” would therefore reference the planets, the “wanderers.” He is essentially over this solar system.
