Irin (Watchers or Holy Watchers)
Twin angels residing in the sixth heaven. The Irin, together with the twin Qaddisin, constitute the supreme judgment council of the heavenly court. They are among the eight exalted hierarchs that enjoy a rank superior to that of Metatron, (who is considered of the greatest angels serving God). According to Daniel 4:17 the Irin are watchers. It is said that "each of the Irin is equal to the rest of the angels and princes put together."
