|'The Chief Angel' - 'Michael' searched in The
Torah @ a 7978 skip
I was reading the Book of Jude in Dave Bauscher's Interlinear Peshitta, and in verse 1.9 I saw the term "The Chief
Angel", so I ran a search of The Torah using the Aramaic spelling found there and the expression showed up quite a bit
more often than would be expected by random chance, an approximately 1 in 2000 occurrence.

Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a
railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. Jude 1.9 KJV
The verse in Jude mentions Michael rebuking Satan over Moses' body, and the main term goes through the expression
"looked after Moses" found in Exodus 33.8.
And the main term actually intersects the word "Moses" in Exodus 33.8:
And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle, that all the people rose up, and stood every man at his tent
door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle. Exodus 33.8 KJV
The word "angel" means "messenger" and Moses was also a 'chief angel" in the sense he brought The LORD's message,
His Law to the people.
