The name Michael comes from the Hebrew מִיכָאֵל (transliterated: mı̂ykâ'êl) and means "Who is like God?". מִיכָאֵל comes from three Hebrew words: מִי (transliterated: mı̂y, meaning "Who"), כִּי (transliterated: kı̂y, meaning "like"), and אֵל (transliterated: 'êl, meaning "God").

He is described as the Prince of Israel who is in charge of defending it, and keeping the nation safe. In the New Testament Michael appears in the Book of Revelation leading the battle against Satan, and his forces in the Second Heaven.
