Dumah

Dumah is an angel mentioned in Rabbinical literature and is a popular figure in Yiddish folklore. Dumah is the Aramaic word for silence.

Duma(h) or Douma (Aramaic) is the angel of silence and of the stillness of death.

Dumah is also the tutelary angel of Egypt, prince of Hell, and angel of vindication. The Zohar, the foundational texts of Jewish Kabbalah, speaks of him as having “tens of thousands of angels of destruction” under him, and as being “Chief of demons in Gehinnom (Hell) with 12,000 myriads of attendants, all charged with the punishment of the souls of sinners.”

In the Babylonian legend of the descent of Istar into Hades, Dumah shows up as the guardian of the 14th gate.

Dumah is mentioned in Isaiah 21:11 as one of the twelve sons of Ishmael and also mentioned is a “burden of Dumah” that some believe could be a prophecy.
