An Arel, Ar'el, or Er'el, more commonly referred to in the plural as "the Erelim", are a rank of angels in Jewish Kabbala and Christian religion. The name is seen to mean "the valiant/courageous". They are generally seen as the third highest rank of divine beings/angels below God.
There may be an etymological relationship between the Arelim and the angel Ariel.
The Erelim angelhood is also believed to be the agents of earthly justice.
