The Four Cardinal Archangels and Directions in Judaism

The Holy One created Four Cardinal Directions in the world- East, West, North, and South. East, from where the light shines forth into the world…As the Holy One, blessed be He, created the Four Cardinal directions and four standards corresponding to them, so also did He set about His throne Four Angels- Michael, Gabriel, Uriel, and Raphael.

Midrash Rabbah, Numbers 2:7-10
