Reuel or Raguel (Hebrew: רְעוּאֵל, Modern Re'u'el Tiberian Rəʻûʼēl ; "Friend of El") meaning "friend of God" or "one who is intimate with God", is a Hebrew name associated with several Biblical and/or religious figures.
Biblical persons with this name are:
- Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, who also went by the name "Reuel" (Exodus 2:18; Numbers 10:29). It has been suggested that Reuel was his proper name, and "Jether" or "Jethro" was his official title (i.e., "excellency").
- A Gadite (Numbers 2:14), called also Deuel (Hebrew: דְּעוּאֵל, Modern Dəʻuʼel Tiberian Dəʻûʼēl) (Numbers 1:14; 7:42); the father of the Gadite prince Eliasaph.
