New Translation: I confess to almighty God And to you, my brothers and sisters, That I have greatly sinned In my thoughts and in my words, In what I have done and in what I have Failed to do, Through my fault, through my fault, Through my most grievous fault; Therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin, All the Angels and Saints, And you, my brothers and sisters, To pray for me to the Lord our God.

In the Jewish scriptures, Gabriel appears to the prophet Daniel, to explain his visions (Daniel –26, –27).
Gabriel the archangel is also a character in other ancient Jewish writings such as the Book of Enoch.
In the Latter-day Saint faith, the prophet Noah was angel Gabriel in a mortal ministry.
