The name Zadkiel means “righteousness of God.” In rabbinic tradition, Zadkiel is known as the angel of benevolence, mercy and memory. In some traditions, he was the angel who held back Abraham’s hand when Abraham was about to sacrifice his son Isaac. Holy Amethyst, Zadkiel’s divine complement, was one of the angels who ministered to Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.
