Summary: Zerrah was counted among a council of Teraphim who gathered in the paradise
city of Adorea to discuss the discordant actions and declarations of Shaemdiel, Chief
Archon of the Council of Elohim. While Zerrah held a more supportive stance regarding
Shaemdiel’s position (E:2:27-33), another of the Teraphim, Lorriel ofRamnios, expressed
her opposition towards Zerrah’s endorsement of Shaemdiel (E:2:33-49).

27. Now when Doriel said these things there stood up to speak, from among the ministering
angels, a certain man whose name was Zerrah of Adorea; and he spoke, saying:
28. “My brethren, for what just cause would we hope to withstand the words of Shaemdiel,
seeing that he is an Arch-Angel of the Most High God, and that into his keeping are
given the very fires of Kolob?
29. Why should our hearts be made to tremble because of him? Has he not argued well
concerning the spirit children of God?
30. For he would establish yet some nobler way whereby all spirits might take to
themselves the greatest glory of all.
31. How then will you say that there is a darkness upon the land; why will you call
into doubt the one whom God has set as Chief Archon of the heavenly hosts?
32. Consider then that Shaemdiel does but speak the mind of God in this thing, and
that such a gloom as we but see is yet the dawn to still some greater light.”
33. Now at these words did the whole council grow silent and filled with stillness,
for every man and every woman did consider deeply the words of Zerrah of Adorea.
