Jahoel - (Jehoel)

Jaluha - in the Gnostic work Texts of the Savior, Jaluha is the “receiver of Sabaoth Adamas.” To sinners who are being judged or purged, Jaluha bears the cup of oblivion so that the soul “may drink therein and forget all the places which it has passed through.”

Jariel - an angel of the divine face or presence. A variant form of Suriel, Sariel, Raziel.

Javan (Yavan) - (Greek, for Greece). a guardian angel whose special sovereignty is (or was) Greece. In Jewish legend, Javan exercises dominion over Israel, although, traditionally, it is Michael who serves as tutelary guardian of the chosen people.

Jazar - a genius who “compels love.” Jazar is one of the genii of the 7th hour, according to The Nuctemeron of Apollonius of Tyana

Jazeriel (Jareriel) - one of the 28 angels ruling over the 28 mansions of the moon.

Jeduthun - (“praising” or “judgment”). in the cabala, lord of the evening choirs in heaven. As “Master of howling” he leads myriads of angels in chanting hymns of praise to God at the close of each day. Psalms 39, 62, 77 are inscribed “to the chief musician, even Jeduthun.” Here, clearly, Jeduthun is a mortal (a Levite), one of the directors of music at the temple; but in the early Middle Ages the Zoharists transformed Jeduthun into an angel and assigned him in heaven a post similar to the one he invested on earth. (See Asaph; Heman)

Jehoel (Jehuel, Jaoel, Yahoel, Shemuel, Kemuel, Metatron) - mediator of the ineffable name and one of the princes of the presence. In Jewish legend, Johoel is “the angel who holds the Leviathan in check.” He is chief of the order of seraphim (although it is Seraphiel who is commonly invested with this rank). According to the Apocalypse of Abraham, Jehoel (otherwise Metatron-Yahoel) is the heavenly choirmaster, “singer of the eternal” and “heavenly son of man” who accompanied Abraham on his visit to Paradise and revealed to him the course of human history. In his Jewish Gnosticism, Merkabah Mysticism, and Talmudic Tradition, Scholem suggests that Jehoel is an earlier name of Metatron. In the cabalistic Berith Menuha 57a, Jaoel (Jehoel) is the principal angel over fire. King, the Gnostics and their Remains, lists 7 subordinates of Jehuel-Seraphiel, Gabriel, Nuriel, Temmael, Shimshael. Hadarniel, and Sarmiel.

Jehovah Angel - the angel in Genesis 48:16 is so termed (i.e. angel of the lord) by Gregory Thaumaturgus in his “Panegyric addressed to Origen.”

Jehudiam - in the Zohar, Jehudiam is an angel “who keeps the accounts of the righteous.” In addition, he, “carries the 70 keys of all the treasures of the lord.”

Jehudiel - ruler of the movements of the celestial spheres. Cf Metatron, “who doth the Primum Mobile guide.” Jehudiel is sometimes included in the list of 7 archangels (See Salatheel)

Jehuel - (Jehoel)

Jekusiel - in Pirke Hechaloth, Jekusiel is an angelic guard stationed in one of the halls of the 1st heaven.

Jekuthiel (Jekutiel) - an amulet spirit, invoked by women at childbirth. Moses was christened Jekuthiel, says Pirke Rabbi Eliezer, because “his form was like that of an angel.”

Jeliel - a seraph whose name is inscribed on the Tree of Life in the world of Yetzirah (Formation). In the cabala, Jeliel is the heavenly prince-ruler of Turkey. He controls the destiny of kings and other high dignitaries and gives the palm of victory to those who are unjustly attacked or invaded. In addition, he inspires passion between the sexes and insures marital fidelity. His sigil is reproduced in Amebelain, La Kabbale Pratique.

Jeou - in Gnostic lore, a great heavenly power who shackles the god Ialdabaoth to a sphere of fate. Jeou deprives the god of his rank and elevates in his place Ialdabaoth’s son, Ibraoth (or Sabaoth).

Jeqon (Yeqon, Yikon) - (“inciter”). a ringleader of the fallen angels, as listed in Enoch I. Of Jeqon it is said that, with the help of Asbeel, another apostate, he led astray the sons of God (other angels) by tempting them with the sight of mortal women; and that it was with these women that these sons of God later had sexual relations.

Jerazol - an angel of power mentioned in cabalistic works. He is invoked in conjuring rites.

Jeremiel - (“mercy of God” or “whom God sets up”). in Enoch I and II Esdras, Jeremiel is equated with Remiel; also with Uriel. He is one of the 7 archangels in the original or earliest listings. He has been described as the “lord of souls awaiting resurrection.” In II Esdras, Jeremiel is referred to as an archangel. In the Masque of Angels, a one-act opera produced in February 1966 at St. George’s Church in New York, Jeremiel was cast as a principality.

Jerescue (Jeruscuel) - a Wednesday angel, residing in the 3rd heaven; he is invoked from the west - according to de Abano, The Heptameron; but, according to Barrett, The Magus II, Jerescue is a resident of the 2nd heaven (which may make a difference as to the direction from which he is to be invoked.)

Jesodoth - in rabbinic tradition, an angel who receives wisdom and knowledge direct from god for transmission to man. He is 10th in the hierarchy of the elohim. Cornelius Agrippa, Three Books of Occult Philosophy, speaks of Jesodoth receiving beneficence from the 10th of the divine essences, elohim.

Jesubilin - according to the Grimorium Verum, a “holy angel of God” invoked in Gnostic rites. The name is a variant form of Serabilin

Jesus (Yeshuah)- regarded by Philo, Justin Martyr, and early Christian writers as “a leading angel” or archangel; also identified as the Logos or Word and as such is said to have been one of the 3 angels that visited Abraham under the oak of Mamre.

Jetrel - one of 200 fallen angels in the Enoch listings

Jeu - in Gnostic lore, specifically in Pistis Sophia, Jue is a great angel, “overseer of light, arranger of the cosmos.” He is one of the 3 great powers on high, occupying the place on God’s right, with Propator on God’s left.

Jevanael (Jareahel) - in Mosaic lore, one of the 7 princes that stand continually before God and to whom are given the spirit-names of the planets.

Jibril (Djibril, Jabriel, Jabril, Jibra’il, Jabriyel, Abruel) - the name of Gabriel in Koranic Scripture. As Jibra’il in Arabic rites of exorcism, he is regarded as a guardian angel. In Persian lore, Jibril is Bahram, “the mightiest of all the angels”; also “Serosh, the message-bringer.”

Jinn - in Moslem theology, the jinn were created 2,000 years before Adam. They were originally of a high estate, equal to the angels, with Eblis chief among them. When, on the creation of Adam, Eblis refused to worship the earthling, Eblis was degraded and cast out of heaven along with the jinn, who thenceforth became demons. Five sons of Eblis were among the evil jinn. In Hughes, a Dictionary of Islam, “Genii” we find the following quotation: “The most noble and honorable among the angels are called the Ginn, because they are veiled form the eyes of the other angels on account of their superiority.”

Jinniyeh - (fem. for Jinn)

Joel (Jael, Jehoel, Yahoel, Jah-el, etc.) - in The Book of Adam and Eve, a pseudepigraphic work, Joel is the archangel who allotted our first parents a 7th part of the earthly paradise. Joel is also credited with being the angel who bade Adam name all things, an incident related in Genesis 2:19-20 (where it is God himself that appoints Adam to the task). Joel (or Yahoel) is the 1st of Metatron’s names. In Conybeare, The Testament of Solomon, the female demon Onoskelis, on being interrogated by Solomon, declared she was subject to Joel.

Jofiel - (Iofiel)

Johiel - angel of Paradise, although Shamshiel, Zephon, Zotiel, Michael, and Gabriel, among others, have been called angels of Paradise. There are actually two paradises, the one heavenly, the other earthly (Eden).

John the Baptist - the “forerunner angel,” as in Exodus 23:20; Malachi 3:1; Matthew 11:10. “Behold, I send an angel before thee, to keep thee in the way and to bring thee into the place I have prepared.” In the Zohar, Rabbi Judah declared: “This angel, this deliverer of the world, is sometimes male, sometimes female. When he procures blessings for the world, he is male, resembling the male who provides blessings for the female. But when he comes to bring chastisement on the world, he is female, being, as it were, pregnant with the judgment. In the Coptic Book of John the Evangelist, Jesus speaks of “Helias the prophet” (meaning John the Baptist) and refers to the latter as an angel sent by Satan to baptize with water. “In the icons of the Eastern Church John the Baptist is always depicted with wings, to indicate his office as a messenger (i.e. angel) sent before the face of Christ” - from Gales, “The Christian Lore of Angels.”

Jomiael - (Jomjael)

Jomjael (Yomyael) - (“day of God”)one of the fallen angels cast out of heaven, along with Semyaza, Satan, etc

Jophiel - (Iofiel)

Jorkemo - (Yurkemi)

Josephel - (Asfa’el)

Joth - a secret name of God which “Jacob learned from the angel in the night of his wrestling, and by which he was delivered from the hands of his brother Esau.”

Jove - a fallen angel in Paradise Lost I 512. Milton derived him from Greek mythology, where he is Zeus, lord of heaven; or from Roman mythology where he is Jupiter or Jove

Jukar - “a prince over all the angels and all the Caesars,” according to Mathers, The Greater Key of Solomon

Junier - an ex-prince of the order of angels.
