ra - gū´el ( Ῥαγουήλ , Rhagouḗl ): "The friend of God," of Ecbatana, the husband of Edna, father of Sarah, and father-in-law of Tobias ( Tobit 3:7,17; 6:10; 7:2 f; 14:12). In Tobit 7:2 he is called cousin of Tobit, and in Tobit 6:10 the King James Version he is erroneously represented as "cousin" of Tobias = "kinsman" in the Revised Version (British and American). In Enoch 20:4 Raguel appears as one of the archangels, perhaps by confusion for Raphael ( Tobit 3:17 ). Another form of the name is REUEL (which see).
