As entities who are responsible for executing divine duties and missions that are beyond the power of all men, including prophets, angels appear frequently in the Bible: 119 times in the Old Testament and 93 times in the New Testament.
Just like human beings, angels have names. Most of the angels in the Bible are not mentioned by their names, but at least two of the major angels are mentioned by name. Michael and Gavriel are mentioned a few times in the Book of Daniel (see related Hebrew Word of the Day entries).
The most common name that appears in the Bible is ‘the angel of the Lord.’
“And the angel of the Lord found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur”
“At about the ninth hour of the day, he clearly saw in a vision an angel of God coming to him, and saying to him, ‘Cornelius!'”
The name ‘angel’ as a ‘messenger’ is derived from the Hebrew word, ‘ha•lach,’ which means ‘goes’ or ‘walks.’
