Angels in the Bible
(Job 38:4-7) Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the eath? declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
There is not much dispute that angels are being talked about here. (Where did Jesus refer to the book of Job?)
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and hisangels were cast out with him.
Verse 4 refers to the stars of heaven, again referring to angels.
(Isaiah 14:12) 12 How art thou fallen from the heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Angels in the Book of Mormon

Angels in the Apocrypha
Apocrypha, from Webster's II New College Dictionary:
- 1 The Biblical books included in in hte Vulgate and accepted inthe Roman Catholic and Orthodox canon but considered uncanonical by Protestants because they are not part of the Hebrew scriptures.
- 2. Early Christian writings proposed as additions to the New Testament but rejected by the major canons.
- 3. apocrypha. Writings of questionable authorship or authenticity
Here, I use the third difinition, which would include the Book of Enoch.
