What do the Hebrew, Greek and Arabic words for "angel" literally mean?

"feathered one"
"messenger"
"God's servant"
"first-born"
The Hebrew word for angel (malʾákh) means "messenger", like its counterparts in Arabic (malak) and Greek (angelos). Contrary to Christians and Jews, Muslims believe that angels cannot be seen with the naked eye, and that prophets such as Muhammad received revelation from them only in a spiritual sense.
