"Righteousness of God"
Angel of Freedom, benevelence, mercy, and the Patron
Angel of all who forgive.
Belonging to the ranks of the dominations, and considered by some to be chief, Zadkiel is
considered an angel of mercy. It is he who holds back the hand of Abraham to prevent the patriarch from sacrificing his son,
and because of this is usually shown holding a dagger. Also, Zadkiel is one of two standard bearers (along with Zophiel) who
follow directly behind Michael as the head archangel enters battle.
