Azazel (/əˈzəzɛl/), also spelled Azazael (Hebrew: עֲזָאזֵל, translit. ʿAzazel; Arabic: عزازيل, translit. ʿAzāzīl), appears in the Bible in association with the scapegoat rite. In some traditions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam it is the name for a fallen angel. In Rabbinic Judaism, it is not a name of an entity but rather means literally "for the complete removal", i.e., designating the goat to be cast out into the wilderness as opposed to the goat sacrificed "for YHWH".
