     II. An Archangel.
     His first appearance in the Old Testament is apparently in Dan. x. 13, where, when the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood Daniel twenty-one days, he adds, "but lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me" (cr. also verse 21).  In xii. 1 it is said, "And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth up for the children of thy people."  In the New Testament we read that "Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee" (Jude 9óR.V.).  The Book of Revelation relates that there was war in heaven.  "Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels" (Rev. xii. 7).  The result was that the dragon and his angels were vanquished and cast out of heaven.  The prince of the Jewish nation spoken of by Daniel was apparently the same as the archangel of the New Testament passages.
