Epistle of Holy Guardian Angels

Exodus 23:20-23

Thus saith the Lord God, Behold I will send My angel, who shall go before thee, and keep thee in thy journey, and bring thee into the place that I have prepared. Take notice of him, and hear his voice, and do not think him one to be contemned, for he will not forgive when thou hast sinned, and My name is in him. But if thou wilt hear his voice, and do all that I speak, I will be an enemy to Thy enemies, and will afflict them that afflict thee: and My angel shall go before thee.

Verse 21. Forgive. Dimittet, as well as the Heb. and Sept., may signify, “he will not abandon.” H. — My name. Moses, Josue, and still more our Saviour, acted in the name and by the authority of God the Father.
