Teraphim/תְּרָפִים: from the root rapha/to heal. Example: The angel Raphael, whose name means, "El/God Heals". Teraphim/healing objects of the ancestors are mentioned a number of times in TANAKH/Hebrew Bible. They were in the homes of Laban, Rachel, David, and Michal; as well as being outlawed by King Josiah. According to Josephus' Antiquities of the Jews, teraphim/"housegods" were in use during the Hellenic period and beyond.
