Suriel (also known as Sariel, Sauriel, Suriyel, Suruel, Surufel, and Surya) is one of the angels of Presence, an angel of healing, and an angel of death. Suriel means "God's command". Suriel is sometimes identified with Ariel, Metatron, Uriel, and Saraqael. In 1 Enoch, he is one of the four holy archangels who is "of eternity and trembling". In Kabbalistic lore, he is one of seven angels of the earth. Origen identified Suriel as one of seven angels who are primodial powers. In Jewish lore, Moses learns all of his knowledge from Suriel, who comes as the angel of death at the end of Moses's life. In Gnosticism, Suriel is invoked for his protective powers. He is commemorated in the calendar of the Coptic Orthodox Church on 27 Tubah.
