Ariel, 1

A´riel, a word meaning 'lion of God,' and correctly enough rendered by 'lion-like,' in 2 Samuel 23:20; 1 Chronicles 11:22. It was applied as an epithet of distinction to bold and warlike persons, as among the Arabians, who surnamed Ali 'The Lion of God.'

Ariel, 2

The same word is used as a local proper name in Isaiah 29:1-2, applied to Jerusalem—'as victorious under God'—says Dr. Lee; and in Ezekiel 43:15-16, to the altar of burnt-offerings.
