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

Vretiel (Pravuil, Vrevoil)
Archangel who records all of God’s deeds and who is
“swifter in wisdom than the other archangels.” The
etymology of “Vretiel” is unknown and unexplained.
As an archangel, he resembles Uriel, but as a scribe he
is probably derived from Thoth, the Egyptian god of
and scribe to the god Osiris (and
the equivalent of the Greek Hermes).
Vretiel is mentioned in 2
. In 22:10–11 God
instructs him to bring out the books from God’s
storehouses and a pen for “speed-writing” and give
them to Enoch. Vretiel hurries away to do God’s bid-
ding and returns with the books and pen so that
Enoch can record what God wishes him to. Vretiel
instructs Enoch for 30 days and 30 nights without
ceasing his talking. Enoch writes it down in 366
Vretiel is sometimes identified as the “man clothed
in linen, with a writing case at his side” in Ezekiel 9:2.
