Watchers in the Bible

Who are the Watchers in the Bible? The term for “watcher” is from Aramaic, one of the few times in the Old Testament that Aramaic is used instead of Hebrew. The term for watcher is from the Aramaic phrase “`iyr” and means “wakeful one, watcher,” or “angel” therefore a watcher was meant as an angel bestowed from God.

Nebuchadnezzar’s dream involved watchers, stating, “I saw in the visions of my head while on my bed, and there was a watcher, a holy one, coming down from heaven” (Daniel 4:13).
