He will give his angels charge of you,
To guard you in all your ways.

A giant angel who in rabbinic lore is a weaver of
prayers, and the twin brother of the mighty Metatron.
The name Sandalphon means “co-brother.”
In rabbinic lore, Sandalphon is so big that his size
strikes fear into the heart of
when the prophet is
taken into heaven to receive the Torah. There he finds
the angel weaving garlands out of the prayers of Israel,
which place themselves on the head of God upon com-
pletion. In addition he fights Samael (Satan) endlessly,
a job he shares with the archangel Michael. He also
determines the sex of the unborn.
Sandalphon’s abode is placed variously in the third,
sixth and seventh
in rabbinic literature, and in
the fourth heaven in Islamic lore.
