He is taller than Kemuel "by 60 myriads of parasangs" but shorter than Sandalphon "by a 500 years' journey" (indicating more location than actual height). On seeing Hadraniel in Heaven, Moses was "struck dumb with awe"; but when Moses uttered the Supreme Name, Hadraniel in turn trembled. Legend speaks of Adam visiting Heaven some 2,000 years before Moses did. On that occasion, Hadraniel spoke to Adam about the latter's possession of The Sefer Raziel (said to contain knowledge and secrets, in it's first edition, unknown even to angels). According to Zoharic legend, "when Hadraniel proclaims the will of the Lord, his voice penetrates through 200,000 firmaments," and according to the Revelation of Moses "with every word from his mouth go forth 12,000 flashes of lightning." In Gnosticism Hadraniel, great as he is, is "only one of 7 subordinates to Jehuel, prince of fire" (Jehuel is equated with Uriel). In Sefer ha-Heshek, Hadraniel is one of the 72+ names (aspects) of the great angel Metatron. In Enoch 3, Odeberg holds that it is possible for Hadraniel to be identified with Metatron and that he has indeed been so identified in apocalyptic literature. He is also said to work beneath Metatron as a general, and also under Uriel. This gives evidence of his association with both entities. He is also identified with Pusiel as Hadriel. (Both Jehuel and Pusiel are confused with Uriel on occasion.)

Harab-Serapel can be used as a title for the leader of this order, & is the 7th of the 10 demons in the Asiatic world. He is also a leader in the infernal regions. In this sense, he is equated with Baal as in: "Adversaries of the Elohim or the Gods, and their chief is Baal." So, Harab-Serapel = Baal while Harab-Serapim = the order.

One of the seven eunuchs who served Ahasuerus and to whom was given the command to bring Queen Esther before the king (Est 1:10). It was he who suggested that Haman be hanged upon the self-same gallows that he had erected for Mordecai (Est 7:9).

Harudha - In Persian mythology, the angel who rules the element Water. In Mandean lore, Harudha is equated with the female Haurvatat, who is the spirit of health and vegetation, as well as the ruler of water.

Harut (Haroth, Haurvatati, Haroot) - Usually linked with Maroth in Islamic legend. Harut was sent down from Heaven (with Maroth) to teach mortals the art of government (see the Quran, sura, 2,102). In Persian lore, Harut and Maroth were angels of the highest rank, claimed to be two of the Amesha Spentas, and in possession of the secret name of God; this name they unhappily revealed to Zobra (Zillah, Zuhrah), a mortal woman, with whom they both fell in love. A footnote to Ode 14 of Hafiz states that, by the power of the Explicit Name, Zuhrah ascended to the planet Venus "with which she became identified in Mohammedan mythology"; and goes on to say that the fallen angels (Marut & Harut) "were punished by being confined, head down, in a pit near Babylon, were they were supposed to teach magic and sorcery." In Hastings, Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics IV, 615, the pair are characterized as "fallen angels with a Satanic role."

Harviel - In the Ma'asseh Merkabah, an angelic guard stationed at the 2nd Heavenly hall in Araboth.

Hasdiel - An angel of the planet Venus. Also the angel of benevolence where he shares office with Zadkiel. He is a general under Uriel. In The Zohar, Hasdiel is one of the two chieftains (the other being Shamshiel) that accompanied Uriel when the latter bore his standard in battle.

Haseha - One of the 15 throne angels listed in The Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses.

Hashesiyah - One of the many names (aspects) of the Metatron.

Hashmal (Chasmal, Hayyah) - Chief angel over the Hashmallim (Dominions, Dominations). According to The Zohar, the term denotes "an inner, supernal sphere, hidden and veiled, in which the mysteries of the celestial letters of the Holy Name are suspended." In Ginzburg, The Legends of the Jews I, 18, it is said that "Hashmal surrounds the throne of God." He is the "fire speaking angel." Joseph Albo in Sefer ha-'Ikkarim (Book of Principles) I, 14, reports that the rabbis, when speaking of Hashmal, mean "the hayyot of fire-speaking." In Hagiga, it is related that "once upon a time a young man was studying the vision of Ezekiel and was dwelling upon the angel Chashmal when fire proceeded from Chashmal and consumed him."

Hashmallim (Hayyot) - ["The God's of the name"]. Referred to as "The Living Creatures," they are a high order of angels, equated with the Dominations because they hold the secret name of God. They are also equated with thrones as they surround the throne of God, and the Cherubim as they lift (and possibly form) the throne of God. The Hashmallim, however, are ranked with the Seraphim, which means they are an entirely different order of angels than these choirs mentioned. While the eponymous chief is Hasmal, Zadkiel, Hashul and Zacharael also have authority over the order. However, all of these but Hashul and Hasmal are Cherubim, and therefor through association, probably misplaced into the order (especially since their are only 4 Hashmallim). Hashul and Hasmal are known to be two of the Hayyoth. In the Kabbalah, the Hashmallim belong to the Yetziratic world, the world of foundation, the abode of angels presided over by the angel Metatron. It is said that the river Dinur ("firey river" or "lake of fire") was created out of the "sweat of those animals [the hashmallim] who sweat because they carry the throne of the Holy and Blessed God." See: The Hayyot.

Hashul - One of the chiefs of the order of Hashmallim.

"Hastening Angel" - A term applied by Milton to Michael as the angel who "caught/Our lingring Parents" and led them out of Eden. Dryden in his State of Innocence informs us that it was Raphael, not Michael. Ariel is also accredited with expelling the ill-fated pair.

Hatach - An angel invoked in medieval Jewish incantation rites. The name derives from the initials of the words of the incantation.

Hatiphas - A Genius of finery, mentioned in Apollonius of Tyana, The Nuctemeron.

Hatspatsiel - One of the many names (aspects) of the Metatron.

Hauras (Haures, Havres, Havras, Flauros) - One of the 72 spirits of Solomon, according to legend, shut up into a brass vessel and cast deep into a deep lake (or into the sea). Formerly, as he confided to Solomon, Hauras was a mighty celestial power (but to which order he belonged to he would not say). He converses gladly about the creation of the world and the fall of the angels. In Hell, where he was a great Duke, he appears in the form of a leopard but, on command of an exorcist, he will manifest in human form. He gives true answers concerning the past and the future. Under his sway, and ready to do his bidding, are 36 legions of the damned. His sigil is shown in Waite, The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts, p. 186. In De Plancy, Dictionnaire Infernal he is pictured in the shape of a man-leopard.

Haurvatat - ["The Wholeness"]. In Zoroastrianism, one of the 6 amesha spentas (archangels). Haurvatat is female and the personification of salvation. She is also a spirit of the waters. Where the Amesha Spentas are equated with the Aeons, she is equated with Ariel, as the 4th of the 6 remaining, and the only female. In Mandean lore she is known as Harudha, though not necessarily equated with Harudha, since the latter is male. Some scholars see a derivation of the Koranic fallen angel Harut from this Persian archangel.

Haurvatati (Haurvatat, Chordad) - An angel in Arabic lore derived from the Amesha Spentas; also called Chordad.

Hayat - One of the many names (aspects) of the Metatron.

Hayya - ["To exist" or "The Living"]. The singular for Hayyoth.

Hayyael - [Hayyel]

Hayyel (Hashmal, Chayyiel, Hayyliel, Johiel, Yayael) - Chief angel of the Hayyoth. He has dominion over wild beasts, but shares it with Thegri (Thuriel), Mtniel, and Jehiel.

Hayyoth (Chayoh, Chayyoth, Chiva, Hashmallim) - ["The Living Ones"]. Called the "Holy, Living Beasts." A class of Merkabah angels equated or ranked with the Cherubim and Seraphim, but usually considered a separate order. Although they have about four respective chiefs (Hashmal, Hayliel, Hasmal, and Hashul) these are probably the actual 4 Hayyoth, while Metatron serves not as a prince per say, because he is not a Hayyoth, but as a chief messenger. The Hayyoth are angels made of fire who reside in the 7th Heaven and surround, support, and compose the throne of God. They each have "4 faces, 4 wings, 2,000 thrones, and are placed next to the wheels of the Merkabah (cherubim)." They are called "creatures" or "beasts" because their faces are that of a man, a lion, an ox and an eagle. Their bodies are also like beasts (lion bodies with eagles wings, eagle talons on front legs and ox hooves on back). According to Ezekiel, the Hayyoth were seen by the river Chebar, numbering 36, although only 4 were the beast form while the rest were Cherubim (formed as wheels). It is said that holy essence passes through the Hayyoth on its journey to earth & therefore they are the instrument through which God is connected to Earth. They are associated with the Cherubim in that the Hayyoth compose the throne while the Cherubim support it (and them). According to The Zohar "God is borne along by four Hayyoth or Holy Beasts, constituting His throne, and these are borne on other angelic beings (Cherubim), which again rest on higher firmaments, under which is the lowest heaven, to which belongs the earth and all its creatures." By this, the Hayyoth are the support for Heaven. They do this by supporting God and his name (the mystery of his power): "The Hayyoth which are never disclosed are those which are under the two undisclosed letters Yod, He’, which rule over Vau, He’, these being the pedestal of the former." The Hayyoth are all comprised in the "firmament of the heaven", and are referred to in the words "let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven", or "and they shall be for lights in the firmament of the heaven". In this sense, there are multiple heavenly realms, and a continuum between these heavens through the "firmament" (Hayyoth) through which God is connected to his creations. Again, in this light, they are said to constitute "the camp of the Shekinah" (God's dwelling among men). Through this, and their hold on Heaven, they are said, by the Zohar, to "uphold the universe." The Aeons (or God) receive the holy effluence from above and disseminate it to the Hayyoth, who are the "movers of the wheels (Cherubim)." The Hayyoth are also the source of the four directions (and therefore the 4 winds of the world), and also the four elements. They are also viewed as the four lightning flashes from the merkabah (the Throne of Glory in motion, in its aspect as a chariot). When they spread their wings, they break forth at the same moment into songs of praise "as the voice of the Almighty." This explains their influence under Metatron.

Haziel (Bernael) - ["The Seeing God", "The God that sees"]. A Cherubim invoked to obtain the pity of God. Haziel is one of the 72 angels bearing the mystical name of God Shemhamphorae. When equated with Bernael, he is an angel of darkness. His sigil. He is said to have been a walker. In I Chronicles 23:9 Haziel is shown as a mortal, an offspring of the Gershonites.

Heavenly Academy - Within the 6th Heaven there is an institution where new angels are educated on the history and arrangement of the universe. It is also here that the scholars of Heaven and the angelic scribes take residence. For the most part, study is done regarding the linking anomalies and mysteries of life, time, virtue, etc. in order to better see the mysteries of God. Often, scholars focus on lesser entities such as the Aeons or the Metatron in order to understand God's workings. The "angel of snow and fire" which is spoken of as a token of the 6th Heaven is located within the territory of this "academy" and is a representation of the first Aeon; Beqa ("the good one"), or the First Angel (Lucifer), who was, before he fell, ever seeking to understand God. It is kept as a symbol of the institutions purpose and as a means to teach lesser angels (who were not involved in the First War) to respect those lost for their former power, so they will not hold contempt within Heaven. It is said that the great judgment will be held here to be presided over by God and every angel. The "Heavenly Academy" is a name for the trial body of angels that assemble to judge human beings when the latter appear in Heaven for Judgement. If a mortal proves worthy, he is "crowned with many radiant crowns," but if he proves unworthy, he is "thrust outside, and stands within the pillar until he is taken to his punishment (to be thrown in the Dinur), and 'erased from the book of life' (destroyed)."

Heavenly Host - A term denoting the angels of Heaven as a whole. While it has been said that the number of angels in Heaven is "myriads upon myriads", it has more often been called "innumerable." The notion that angels are not still being created was fabricated and is found only in the modern Christian church. It was argued that angels "do not marry" which does not matter based on the fact that marriage is a means to "earthly reproduction" and the angels were not born, but created. It is also argued that there is no mention of angels being created throughout biblical history, but there is no reference in the Bible of any time in which the angels were created, it is only assumed (and confirmed in secular texts) that the angels were created during the creation of light and the Heavens. This does not determine, however, that they were all created at once, as even the Heavens continuously change throughout time (the movement of Eden, the Shekinah etc.). Also, according to just about every other religion in the world, angels create quite often, they do so through God, and not by their power alone but they do create. It is the aeons, for example, which made the physical world based on God's design. Because "everything has been put under the charge of an angel", it is safe to assume that angels are not a stationary number. Job conceived the Heavenly host as "morning stars singing together and shouting for joy." In Dante's Paradiso, canto 27, the Heavenly host is intone the "Gloria in Excelsis." Blake saw the innumerable company of Heaven crying "Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord almighty." These both most likely refer to the "Trisagion" which is sung by many orders of angels (and probably them all) consistently throughout Heaven.

Heavenly Scribe - Radueriel, Zagzagel, Vretil, Soferiel, Raziel, and other scholar angels are referred to as "heavenly scribes." Michael and Metatron have also been so named. Enoch in his lifetime, was known by this title, and it also refers to the "man clothed in linen," an image found in Ezekiel 9:2 and in Daniel 10.

Hebdomad - A term in Ophitic lore for the 7 aeons. Those 7 potentates who are equated with the 7 Angels of the Presence, the 7 Archangels, and first rulers of the 7 Heavens. These 7 being: Adoneus (Adonai, Beqa), Sabaoth (Michael), Oreus (Uriel), Ialdabaoth (Aariel), Eloeus (Gabriel), Jao (Raphael), and Astaphaeus (Danyael). These are the 7 holy Hebdomad (although, not all of these are consistently called holy in the Gnostic system). They are known as manifestations of God personified, and are the "Elohim" of scripture. Together, they combine the characteristics of God and are instruments of his will who uphold the universe. It is the Hebdomad which create, destroy and keep order on God's behalf. Origen, in his Contra Celsum VI, spells out equivalent names of these 7: Michael (in the form of a lion); Suriel (in the form of an ox); Raphael (in the form of a dragon); Gabriel (in the form of an eagle); Thautabaoth (in the form of a bear); Erataoth (in the form of a dog); Onoel (in the form of an ass). Although, these have been noted as the forms of the demonic Hebdomad, who are under the serpent (The Kasbeel).

Hechaloth (Hekhaloth) - The Hechaloth are the 7 female emanations of God, the counterpart of the 10 male Sephiroth. The Zohar translates the word to mean "beautiful virgins." They are also called the consorts of the Aeons, all but Aariel who is an Aeon. Aariel is the head of the order, and is known as Hechaloth. The others are mentioned as Dynamis, Beatris, Daneel, Nox (or Nud), and Anael; but the 7th, the consort of Nathaniel (The first aeons holy replacement), is unnamed. While the Sephiroth keep order in the spheres of the 10 Heavens, the Hechaloth are also personifications of the 7 Heavenly Halls in Araboth, and 7 palaces Palaces throughout the greater 7 Heavens, all of which are guarded over by the great warden angels. As with the Sephiroth, they emanate from the right side of the Creator (although the Hechaloth come from the Shekinah, as they are feminine). There are also unholy emanations (the unholy Sephiroth or Qlippoth, the averse ones) and these issue from his left side (the dark or negative side). Keeping in mind that the adversary, Satan was once seated as a representative of God's "left hand side," this indicates that the mocking Sephiroth are actually emanations from him. For a listing of both choirs, see here.

He'el - ["God of life"]. An angel leader of the "heads of thousands." Said to be a regent of guardian angels serving under Gabriel (the Archangel of Humanity). In Enoch I, He'el is ruler of one of the seasons of the year, (probably spring/summer). In the Apocrypha, he is associated with the angel Elimelech (also under Gabriel).

Heiglot - In transcendental magic, a genius or angel of snowstorms. He is also a ruler of the 1st hour of the day. In The Nuctemeron, the 12 hours, analogous to the 12 zodiacal signs are presided over by the 12 gennii or angels, of which Heiglot is one.

Heikhali - In Hechaloth lore, an angelic guard stationed at the 7th Heavenly hall at Araboth.

Hel - According to Scot, Discoverie of Witchcraft, Hel is a name for an angel of God, invoked in conjuring rites. Hel is an angel of death and is invoked regarding premature death ore resurrection. Associated with the Nephilim Helel. In this Lucifer connection, he often appears as an angel of light, but tortures the ill-fated invocant in exchange for their petition.

Helayaseph (Jiluyaseph, Hilujaseph) - An angel governing one of the seasons (most likely fall/winter), as noted in Enoch I. Helayaseph is under Uriel and Gabriel and is "head of a thousand" angels of the season.

Helech - [Abelech]

Helel - ["The Dwelling God", "The God who Dwells here"]. In Canaanitish mythology, a fallen angel, son of Sahar or Sharer, a winged deity. Helel sought to usurp the throne of the chief God and, as punishment, was cast down into the abyss. He is thus sometimes equated with Lucifer. However, although the "1st star" to fall from Heaven was Satan, as Bamberger argues in his Fallen Angels: "The more natural explanation (in this legend) is that the 1st star [that fell] was Azazel." He is refering to Azazel, the wicked Grigori who's son was the leader of the Nephilim, called Helel. This is most likely the result of a mixing of the two legends, as Azazel was a "winged God" and called "Sharar" which means "enemy" (obviously not the Creator God). Azazel was not the original chief of the Watchers who fell, but became known as "the chief God" when he persuaded the Grigori towards evil and took power from the true head of the order Semyaza. The Nephilim were known for attempts at destroying their fathers to claim hold on their power and possessions, and rather than kill their sons, the Grigori often sent them away to foreign lands (which would explain the notion of "the abyss" in this legend).

Heleleth (Eleleth) - ["The God who Lived before"]. In Gnostic lore, a great luminary, described thus in the Hypostasis of the Archons: "the great Heleleth descends from the Holy Spirit; his aspect like gold, his vesture like snow."

Helemmelek - In Enoch I, an angel governing one of the seasons (probably summer/fall). His name is said to be an inversion of Milkiel.

Hellison (Helison) - One of the 5 angels of the 1st altitude, the other 4 being Alimiel, Gabriel, Barachiel, Lebes. When invoked, Helison appears carrying a banner adorned with a crimson cross, crowned with roses.

Hemah - An angel of wrath, with dominion over the death of domestic animals. Hemah is under Azrael and Ariel and is also an angel of destruction. According to The Zohar I, Hemah, with the help his brother angel named Af (the angel of rage), nearly swallowed Moses, and would have suceeded in doing so, but for the timely intervention of God. When the Lawgiver was disgorged, he turned around and slew Hemah - one of the rare instances where a mortal was able to do away with an immortal, an angel. Like Af, Hemah was 500 parasangs tall, and was "forged out of chains of black and red fire."

Heman - ["Trustful one", "Faithful one"]. According to Rabbi Judah in The Zohar (Kedoshim) and according to 3 Enoch, Heman is a leader of one of the heavenly choirs. Heman and the angels under him sing hosannas in the morning hours, just as those under Jeduthun sing hosannas in the evening hours, and those under Asaph sing at night. Psalm 88 is headed: "To the chief Musician upon Mahalath Leannoth, Maschil of Heman the Ezrahite." In the course of time, it seems that the 3 psalmists (Heman, Asaph, and Jeduthun) were transformed into maestro-angels (Ischim) in order to perform, in Heaven, services for which they showed special skill on Earth.

Herachio - [Astrachios]

Herald Angel - Akraziel to the various Heavens, Michael to all the Heavenly Host, & Raziel to the Walkers and all angels on Earth. Gabriel serves as a Herald to mankind and to the realms of Purgatory and Limbo, which he governs. Pyriel was the angel who announced Jesus' resurrection. Ariel was the announcer to the Shepherds of the Nativity.

Herald of Hell - Zophiel. A mocking title passed to the angel by Gabriel (or others) when the spying angel who, during the First War, returned from Hell's ranks where he had been stationed to infiltrate and announced that the war had been in vain. In his attempt to surreptitiously enter & gain access to the infernal army he had become convinced of their motives and in jest, was given the title "Herald of Hell" when he tried to persuade Gabriel's army to withhold advances on a group of fallen which were planning to enter Heaven. He also gave information regarding a planned attack on the 3rd Heaven involving fire of some kind, but he was discovered before the attack was launched and not permitted to pursue espionage during the remainder of the War.

Hermes - [See Pantheon Associations - Hermes]

Hermesiel - A leader of the heavenly choir, sharing his post with Metatron, Radueriel, Tagas, and other celestial masters of song. Hermesiel is an angel "created" from Hermes, the Greek divinity. Says T. Gaster in The Holy and the Profane: "Hermes, inventor of the lyre, was transmogrified into the angel Hermesiel." Due to his Hermes association, he is considered associated with Raphael as a variant or cooresponding angel. In time, Prof. Gaster adds, Hermes was identified with David, "sweet singer of Israel."

These are usually Generals of the Archangels, but are ranked as one of the orders among the 10 hierarchies in the Kabbalah.

Hokmael - [Hochmel]

Holy Beasts (Hayyoth, Hashmallim) - In the Talmud, the holy beasts are equated with the Cherubim. However, the Hayyoth is probably where the term originated from, the Cherubim being a direct associated choir with this particular order. In Hagiga, "the holy beasts are numbered with the Ophanim, and the Seraphim, and the ministering angels."

Holy Ghost - [Holy Spirit]

Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost) - Another name for the Comforter; the manifestation of God which makes it's dwelling within the created world. This is the 3rd person in the Trinity, where God the father, and the Son (the Event One) make up the remaining. The Holy Spirit is regarded as female, and equated with the Shekinah, and the Pistis Sophia. As a divided manifestation, the holy spirit has "made it's dwelling in the Earth" since the creation (or fall) of man, but is hidden and veiled. Upon judgment, the Father and the Spirit will be reunited. The Gospel According to the Hebrews makes the Lord speak of "my mother the Holy Ghost" who "took me by one of my hairs and carried me to the great mountain Tabor" (traditionally the mountain of the Transfiguration). The "mother" reference here has been argued with the fact that in Aramaic, which Jesus spoke, as also in Hebrew, the word spirit or ghost is of the feminine gender. However, the word "mother" is used apart from the actual utterance of "holy ghost," which means that it was directly described as female, as the gender of the word itself would not have naturally effected the syntax of the statement. The Commentary on the Apocalypse of the Blessed John suggests that "by the angel flying through the midst of Heaven is signified the Holy Spirit." In other words, the angels and/or their active work makes up this manifestation. Although, Aariel has also been equated with the "Holy Ghost, most definitely as a result of her association with the Shekinah, Pistis Sophia, Demiurge, etc.
Holy Ones - Another term for the Archangels (Aeons, 7 Creation Angels, Angels of the Presence, etc.)

Hosts of the Height - [Hosts of the High Ones]

Hosts of the High Ones (Hosts of the Height) - A term for angels (regarding their placement under the Aeons), as in Isaiah 24:21, where God threatens dire punishment on his servitors, mortal and divine: "And it shall come to pass on that day that the Lord shall punish the Host of the High Ones that are on High (the Archangels, and the Manifestations) and the kings of the Earth upon the Earth."

Hosts of the Lord - The ministering angels led by Michael. This is somewhat in association with the Hosts of the High Ones in that it refers to the Archangels or to God vicariously through them. All angels in the armies and the hosts of Heaven are under the charge of Michael, and are called Hosts of the Lord.

Household of the Upper World - The Cherubim, who actually "form" or "constitute" the palaces, thrones and streets of Heaven. The Household of the Upper World is a term used in Hechaloth lore to describe the Cherubim regarding this attribute of the choir. Called in Hebrew: "pamelia shel ma'alah."
