Messengers of Yahuah (aka Angels)

What does Torah say about Angels? Are there Angels in the Torah?!?

NO. There is no such thing as Angels in the Torah! 

The only humanoid creatures with wings that are mentioned in the Torah are the Cherubim. And Torah says very little about them. They are mentioned as the guardians of the Garden of Eden and as decorations of the Mercy Seat (Lid) of the Ark of the Covenant.

But Cherubim are NOT Angels. So what does the Torah talk about?!?

Let's take a look:

Here is the ISA2 analysis of the word (מלאך), which is traditionally translated as "Angel".

As you can see, not once Torah uses the word "angel". The only word that is used in the Torah is the word "messenger".

So as you can see, it is the "Messengers" and not "Angels". It is either normal humans or divine beings that deliver the specific message of Yahuah. The word "Messenger" is very different in meaning from the word "Angel". So this is a very important distinction that one has to understand here.

I hope now it is clear that there were no any angels in the Torah, only messengers.

Messengers can be corporeal (normal humans). See Genesis 19:1, 15.
Or, Messengers can be noncorporeal Gen 21:17, Exodus 3:2
