Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֲרִיאֵל m. (comp. of אֲרִי and אֵל).

(1) lion of God, i.e. very mighty hero. Collect. 2 Samuel 23:20, שְׁנֵי אֲרִיאֵל מוֹאָב “two heroes of Moab;” see אַרְאֵלּ and אֲרִי 1 Chronicles 11:22. (Compare Arab. اُللَّهِ أَسَدُ and اُللَّهِ لَيْتُ lion of God, an epithet of brave men, and Pers. شير خدا Shiri khoda, lion of God.) Isaiah 29:1, Isaiah 29:2, used of Jerusalem as the “city of heroes,” which is to be unconquered; although others, comparing the passage of Ezekiel about to be cited, render it hearth, i.e. altar of God.

(2) hearth of God (compare إِرَةُ hearth, chimney, from the root אָרָה No. II.), used of the altar of burnt-offering, Ezekiel 43:15, 16 Ezekiel 43:16.
