Séraph. n.s. [.שראף] One of the order of angels.
He is infinitely more remote in the real excellency of his nature, from the highest and perfectest of all created beings, than the purest seraph is from the most contemptible part of matter, and consequently must infinitely exceed what our narrow understanding can conceive of him. Locke.
As full, as perfect in vile man that mourns,
As the rapt seraph that adores and burns. Pope.
