Role in Religious Texts:

Chamuel isn’t mentioned by name in major religious texts, but in both Jewish and Christian tradition, he has been identified as the angel who carried out some key missions. Those missions have included comforting Adam and Eve after God sent Archangel Jophiel to expel them from the Garden of Eden and comforting Jesus Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane before Jesus’ arrest and crucifixion.

Some people consider Chamuel to be the patron angel of people who gone through relationship trauma (such as divorce), people who are working for world peace, and those who are searching for items they’ve lost.
