("friend of God.")

1. Prince priest of Midian; father of Zipporah, Moses' wife, and of Jethro and Hobab. (See JETHRO; HOBAB.) (Exodus 2:21; Exodus 3:1; Numbers 10:29). The older tradition, and the insecurity from Egyptian power which Moses would have been exposed to in the W. of the Elanitic gulf, favor the view that Raguel lived on the coast E. of the Elanitic gulf.

2. Genesis 36:4.
