Ezekiel 14:14

Hebrew Bible

13 “Son of man, suppose a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it, cut off its bread supply, cause famine to come on it, and kill both people and animals. 14 Even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would save only their own lives by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign Lord. 15 “Suppose I were to send wild animals through the land and kill its children, leaving it desolate, without travelers due to the wild animals.

1 Enoch 6:7


6 And there were in total two hundred who descended on the summit of Mount Hermon in the days of Jared, and they named it Mount Hermon because they had taken an oath and bound themselves with solemn promises there. 7 And these are the names of their leaders: Semjâzâ, their leader, Arâkîba, Râmêal, Kôkabîal, Tâmîal, Râmîal, Dânal, Êzêqêal, Barâqîjâl, Asâal, Armâros, Batârêal, Anânêal, Zaqîêal, Samsâpêal, Satarêal, Tûrêal, Jômjâal, Sarîêal. 8 These are their chiefs of tens.

 Notes and References

"... Milik identifies this angel with the sage Dan'el in Ezekiel 14:14, 20: 28:3; notes that Enoch married the daughter of Dan'el according to Jubilees 4:20; and connects this with the fact that the angel occupies the same position on this list as Enoch does in the list of antediluvian patriarchs. Although the names are not the same, these speculations are uncertain. In context the name is one more reference to God's function as judge. This irony could explain its place in the list ..."
