After the seraphim, before the All-knowing God, Who resides in inaccessable light, stand the many-eyed cherubim in ineffable radiance. More than the other lower orders of angels, they are always radiant with the light of the knowledge of God, with the knowledge of the mysteries of God and the depths of His Wisdom; being themselves enlightened, they enlighten others. Their name "cherubim" in translation from the Hebrew language means great understanding or effusion of wisdom, because through the cherubim, wisdom is sent down to others and enlightenment of the spiritual eyes is given for the seeing of God and knowledge of God.
