ministering spirits, spirits in the divine service

The Greek that is translated as “spirits in the divine service” or “§ministering spirits” in English is translated in Enlhet as “invisible spirits that help us.” “‘Invisible’ had to be made explicit to distinguish them from ‘wandering souls and ghosts’ which people ‘see’ and fear.” (Source: Jacob Loewen in The Bible Translator 1969, p. 24ff.)
