אֲרִיאֵל m. (comp. of אֲרִי and אֵל).

(1) lion of God, i.e. very mighty hero. Collect. 2 Samuel 23:20, שְׁנֵי אֲרִיאֵל מוֹאָב “two heroes of Moab;” see אַרְאֵלּ and אֲרִי 1 Chronicles 11:22. (Compare Arab. اُللَّهِ أَسَدُ and اُللَّهِ لَيْتُ lion of God, an epithet of brave men, and Pers. شير خدا Shiri khoda, lion of God.)
