Uriel's name means fire of God. The Angel presides over Tartarus or Hell. In the apocalypse, Angel Uriel appears as the Angel of Repentance. Here he is shown holding his fiery sword of justice in one hand and the keys to the gates of Hades in the other hand. (A-023S)
Being both a Seraphim and a Cherubim, Uriel is identified as one of the Angels who helped bury Adam and Abel in Paradise: as the dark Angel who wrestled with Jacob at Peniel: as the destroyer of the Host of Sennacherib and as the messenger sent by God to warn Noah of the deluge. Often identified as the Cherub who stands at the gate of Eden with a fiery sword or as in Enoch I where he is the Angel who watches over thunder and terror.
