1. Chancellor of Heaven and one of the leaders of the Seraphim. Metatron is the most important angel in Jewish lore, which probably accounts for his name, which means “the throne beside the throne of God.” According to legend, Metatron was originally Enoch, a man who lived for three-hundred-and-sixty-five years on earth before “God took him” and turned him into an angel (Genesis 5:23–24). Metatron, the angel, has 365,000 eyes and 36 wings. Enoch had been a scribe before his transformation, and has continued working as God’s secretary. In Jewish belief, Metatron carries Jewish prayers through 900 heavens directly to God. According to The Zohar, Metatron combines both human and angelic perfection, and this serves him in good stead in his role of ruling the entire world. Fortunately, he has seventy angelic princes to help him in this work. You should call on Metatron whenever you are engaged in deep thought.
2. A Sar (Princely Angel) who features prominently in Jewish esoteric literature. The name “Metatron” itself is a puzzle, being a Greek derived word meaning either meta-thronos, “beyond the throne,” metator, “guide,” or meta-tetra, “beyond the four [Angels of the Countenance].”
