What Does the Bible Say About..Uriel?

Does the Bible say anything about an angel Uriel? I have heard various stories about him, and was curious if they had any backing in the Bible. If not, where did this angel originate? Thanks.


The Bible does not mention any angels by name except Michael and Gabriel (and Raphael if you accept the Apocrypha as being part of the Bible). Uriel is named in a book called the Book of Enoch. It has never been accepted as being part of the Bible. Milton named other angels in “Paradise Lost.” Most of what we think we know about angels (including listing Gabriel as an archangel) comes from sources outside the Bible.
