  13. Angels Praise GodBavli Hagiga 12b • R. Judah said: There are two firmaments, for it is said: Behold, unto the Lord thy God belongeth heaven, and the heaven of heavens. • Resh Lakish said: [There are] seven, namely, Wilon, Rakia’, Shehakim, Zebul, Ma'on, Makon, ‘Araboth. Wilon serves no purpose except that it enters in the morning and goes forth in the evening and renews every day the work of creation, for it is said: That stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in. Rakia’ is that in which sun and moon, stars and constellations are set, for it is said: And God set them in the firmament [Rakia’] of the heaven. Shehakim is that in which millstones stand and grind manna for the righteous for it is said: And He commanded the skies [Shehakim] above, and opened the doors of heaven; and He caused manna to rain upon them for food etc. • Zebul is that in which [the heavenly] Jerusalem and the Temple and the Altar are built, and Michael, the great Prince, stands and offers up thereon an offering, for it is said: I have surely built Thee a house of habitation [Zebul], a place for Thee to dwell in for ever. And whence do we derive that it is called heaven? For it is written: Look down from heaven, and see, even from Thy holy and glorious habitation. • Ma'on is that in which there are companies of Ministering Angels, who utter [divine] song by night, and are silent by day for the sake of Israel's glory, for it is said: By day the Lord doth command His lovingkindness, and in the night His song is with me.

Do Angel Perform Misvot?Jubilees 2:18-19 • And every one that is born, the flesh of whose foreskin is not circumcised on the eighth day, belongs not to the children of the covenant which the Lord made with Abraham, but to the children of destruction; nor is there, moreover, any sign on him that he is the Lord's, but (he is destined) to be destroyed and slain from the earth, and to be rooted out of the earth, for he hath broken the covenant of the Lord our God. 27. For all the angels of the presence and all the angels of sanctification have been so created from the day of their creation, and before the angels of the presence and the angels of sanctification He hath sanctified Israel, that they should be with Him and with His holy angels.

  16. Do Angel Perform Misvot?Jubilees 15:26-27 • And He gave us a great sign, the Sabbath day, that we should work six days, but keep Sabbath on the seventh day from all work. 18. And all the angels of the presence, and all the angels of sanctification, these two great classes--He hath hidden us to keep the Sabbath with Him in heaven and on earth. 19. And He said unto us: "Behold, I will separate unto Myself a people from among all the peoples, and these will keep the Sabbath day, and I will sanctify them unto Myself as My people, and will bless them; as I have sanctified the Sabbath day and do sanctify (it) unto Myself, even so shall I bless them, and they will be My people and I shall be their God.

(תהלים ח) מה אנוש כי תזכרנו ובן אדם כי תפקדנו (תהלים ח) ה' אדנינו מה אדיר שמך בכל הארץ אשר תנה הודך על השמים! - אמר לו הקדוש ברוך הוא למשה: החזיר להן תשובה! ...אמר לפניו: רבונו של עולם, תורה שאתה נותן לי מה כתיב בה - (שמות כ) אנכי ה' אלהיך אשר הוצאתיך מארץ מצרים. אמר להן: למצרים ירדתם, לפרעה השתעבדתם, תורה למה תהא לכם? שוב מה כתיב בה - לא יהיה לך אלהים אחרים, בין הגויים אתם שרויין שעובדיןעבודה זרה? שוב מה כתיב בה - זכור את יום השבת לקדשו כלום אתם עושים מלאכה שאתם צריכין שבות? שוב מה כתיב בה - לא תשא, משא ומתן יש ביניכם? שוב מה כתיב בה - כבד את אביך ואת אמך אב ואם יש לכם? שוב מה כתיב בה לא תרצח לא תנאף לא תגנב, קנאה יש ביניכם, יצר הרע יש ביניכם? מיד הודו לו להקדוש ברוך הוא,
