Arzel

In Geof Gray-Cobb’s book The Miracle of New Avatar Power, the Angel Arzel plays a prominent role. He is the first that is called on in every ritual, and acts as the gatekeeper of the system.

In Damon Brand’s book The 72 Angels of Magick, he is treated as a part of the Angel of Secrets, Raziel.

Some believe that he is the Enochian Angel ARZL.

In the Bible ARZ is translated as “cedar”. The Psalm that is commonly assigned to Arzel is

Ps 80:11

“The mountains were covered with the shadow of it, and the mighty cedars with the boughs thereof.”

There are 3 more Psalms in which the cedar is mentioned, but only in 80:11 the letters ARZI are immediately followed by AL.

Ps 29:5

“The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.”

Ps 92:13

“The righteous shall flourish like the palm-tree; he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.”

Ps 104:16

“The trees of the LORD have their fill, the cedars of Lebanon which He hath planted.”

In Persian there is the word ARZ

which means “presenting itself / appearing / representing / a petition”. Considering his role in Gray-Cobb’s book, I think this seems like a very plausible root for the Name of this Angel. It certainly makes more sense than “cedar”.

Here is a Seal for Arzel, based on the Malachim alphabet. Feel free to use it when calling him who appears and represents when you are making a petition.
