A Hebrew word meaning servant of God. The name of an angel mentioned by the Jewish Cabalists. He is represented in Milton's Paradise Lost, Book V, lines 894-7, as one of the seraphbn, who, when Satan tried to stir up a revolt among the angels subordinate to his authority, alone and boldly withstood his traitorous designs :
Among the faithless, faithful only he; Among innumerable false, unmoved, unshaken un-seduced, un-terrified, His loyalty be kept, his love, his zeal.
The name Abdiel became the synonym of honor and faithfulness.
