The Angel of Death’s personification as an evil creature wearing a black hood and carrying a scythe (the Grim Reaper of popular culture) originated from the Jewish Talmud’s descriptions of an Angel of Death (Mal'akh ha-Mavet) that represents the demons associated with the fall of mankind (one consequence of which was death). However, the Midrash explains that God does not allow the Angel of Death to bring evil to righteous people. Also, all people are bound to encounter the Angel of Death when it’s their appointed time to die, says the Targum (the Aramaic translation of the Tanakh, or Hebrew Bible), which translates Psalm 89:48 as, "There is no man who lives and, seeing the angel of death, can deliver his soul from his hand."
