The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter

1:1  1:1 The words of the blessing of Enoch where-with he blessed the chosen and just, who will  RHC  RL 
1:2exist on the day of tribulation when all the wicked and impious shall be removed.1:2 And then answered and spoke Enoch, a just man, whose eyes were opened by God so that he saw a holy vision in the heavens, which the angels showed to me, and from them I heard everything, and I knew what I saw, but not for this generation, but for the far-off generations which are RHC  RL 
1:3to come.1:3 Concerning the chosen I spoke and conversed concerning them with the Holy and Great One, who will come from his abode,  RHC  RL 
1:4the God of the world.1:4 And from there he will step on to Mount Sinai, and appear with his hosts, and appear in the strength of his power from heaven.  RHC  RL 
1:5  1:5 And all will fear, and the watchers will tremble, and great fear and terror will seize them to the ends of the earth.  RHC  RL 
1:6  1:6 And the exalted mountains will be shaken, and the high hills will be lowered, and will melt like wax before the flame.  RHC  RL 
1:7  1:7 And the earth will be submerged, and everything that is on the earth will be destroyed, and there will be a judgment upon every thing, and upon all the just.  RHC  RL 
1:8  1:8 But to the just he will give peace, and will protect the chosen, and mercy will abide over them, and they will all be God’s, and will be prosperous and blessed, and the light of God will shine for them.  RHC  RL 
1:9  1:9 And behold, he comes with myriads of the holy to pass judgment upon them, and will destroy the impious, and will call to account all flesh for everything the sinners and the impious have done and committed against him.  RHC  RL

2:1  2:1 I observed everything that took place in the heavens, how the luminaries, which are in the heavens, do not depart from their paths, that each one rises and sets in order, each in its time, and  RHC  RL 
2:2they do not depart from their laws.2:2 See the earth and observe the things that are done on it, from the first to the last, how no work of God is irregular in appearing.  RHC  RL 
2:3  2:3 See the summer and the winter, how then the whole earth is full of water, and clouds and dew and rain rest over it.  RHC  RL

3:1  3:1 I observed and saw how then all the trees appeared as if withered, and all their leaves are shaken off, except fourteen trees, whose leaves are not shaken off, but which abide with the old from two to three years, till the new come.  RHC  RL

4:1  4:1 And again I observed the days of summer, how the sun is then above it [i.e. the earth], opposite to it, but ye seek cool and shady places on account of the heat of the sun, and the earth also burns with fervent heat, but ye cannot step on the earth or on a rock because of their heat.  RHC  RL

5:1  5:1 I observed how the trees cover themselves with the green of the leaves and bear fruit; but observe ye all this and learn how he who lives forever has made all these for you;  RHC  RL 
5:2  5:2 how his works are before him in every year that comes, and all his works serve him and are not changed, but as God has ordained, so everything takes place.  RHC  RL 
5:3  5:3 And see how the seas and the rivers together accomplish their work.  RHC  RL 
5:4  5:4 But ye have not persevered and have not done the commandment of the Lord, but have transgressed, and have slandered his greatness with high and hard words from your unclean mouths. Ye hard-hearted, ye will have no peace.  RHC  RL 
5:5  5:5 And therefore ye will curse your days, and the years of your lives perish; the everlasting curse will increase and ye will receive no mercy.  RHC  RL 
5:6  5:6 On that day ye will give away your peace for an everlasting curse to all the just, and they will ever curse you as sinners, you together with the sinners.  RHC  RL 
5:7  5:7 but for the chosen there will be light and joy and peace, and they will inherit the earth, but for you, the impious, there will be a curse.  RHC  RL 
5:8  5:8 And then also wisdom will be given to the chosen, and they will all live and not continue to sin; neither through wickedness nor through pride; but they in whom there is wisdom will be humble RHC  RL 
5:9without continuing to sin.5:9 And they will not be punished all the days of their lives, and will not die through plagues or judgments of wrath, but the number of the days of their lives will be completed, and their lives will become old in peace, and the years of their joy will be many in everlasting happiness and peace, for all the days of their lives.  RHC  RL

6:1  6:1 And it came to pass, after the children of men had increased in those days,  RHC  RL 
6:2beautiful and comely daughters were born to them.6:2 And the angels, the sons of the heavens, saw and lusted after them, and said one to another: "Behold, we will choose for ourselves wives from among the children of men, RHC  RL 
6:3and will beget for ourselves children."6:3 And Semjaza, who was their leader, said to them: "I fear that perhaps ye will not RHC  RL 
6:4be willing to do this deed, and I alone shall suffer for this great sin."6:4 Then all answered him and said: "We all will swear an oath, and bind ourselves mutually by a curse, RHC  RL 
6:5that we will not give up this plan, but will make this plan a deed."6:5 Then they all swore together, and bound themselves RHC  RL 
6:6mutually by a curse; and together they were two hundred.6:6 And they descended on Ardîs, which is the summit of Mount Hermon; and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn RHC  RL 
6:7on it and bound themselves mutually by a curse.6:7 And these are the names of their leaders: Semjaza, who was their leader, Urakibarameel, Akibeel, Tamiel, Ramuel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Saraqujal,  RHC  RL 
6:8Asael, Armers, Batraal, Ananî, Zaqebe, Samsaveel, Sartael, Turel, Jomjael, Arazjal. 6:8 These are the leaders of the two hundred angels, and the others all were with them.  RHC  RL

7:1  7:1 And they took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in to them, and mixed with them, and taught them charms  RHC  RL 
7:2and conjurations, and made them acquainted with the cutting of roots and of woods.7:2 And they  RHC  RL 
7:3became pregnant and brought forth great giants whose stature was three thousand ells.7:3 These devoured  RHC  RL 
7:4all the acquisitions of mankind till men were unable to sustain themselves.7:4 And the giants turned themselves against mankind  RHC  RL 
7:5in order to devour them.7:5 And they began to sin against the birds and the beasts, and against the creeping things, and the  RHC  RL 
7:6fish, and devoured their flesh among themselves, and drank the blood thereof.7:6 Then the earth complained of the unjust ones.  RHC  RL

8:1  8:1 And Azazel taught mankind to make swords and knives and shields and coats of mail, and taught them to see what was behind them, and their works of art: bracelets and ornaments, and the use of rouge, and the beautifying of the eye-brows, and the dearest and choicest stones and all  RHC  RL 
8:2coloring substances and the metals of the earth.8:2 And there was great wickedness and much fornication, and they  RHC  RL 
8:3sinned, and all their ways were corrupt.8:3 Amezarak taught all the conjurers and root-cutters, Armarôs the loosening of conjurations, Baraq’al the astrologers, Kôkabel the signs, and Temel taught astrology, and Asradel taught the course of the moon. 8:4 And in the destruction of mankind, they cried aloud, and their voices reached heaven. RHC  RL

9:1  9:1 Then Michael and Gabriel and Surjan and Urjan looked down from heaven and saw the great amount of blood which had been spilled on the earth, and all the wickedness which had been committed over the earth.  RHC  RL 
9:2  9:2 And they said to one another: "The emptied earth re-echoes the sound of their [i.e. mankind’s] cries up to the gates of heaven.  RHC  RL 
9:3  9:3 And now to you, O ye holy ones of heaven, cry the souls of men, saying: ‘Secure us judgment  RHC  RL 
9:4before the Most High.’9:4 And they spoke to their Lord, to the King: ‘O Lord of lords, God of gods, King of kings, the throne of thy majesty is among all the generations of the  RHC  RL 
9:5world, and thy name, holy and glorious, among all the generations of the world. Thou art blessed and praised! 9:5 Thou hast made all things and all power is with thee, all things are open before thee and uncovered, and thou seest all  RHC  RL 
9:6things and nothing can hide itself from thee. 9:6 See then what Azazel has done, how he has taught all wickedness on earth and has revealed the secrets of the world which were prepared in the heavens.  RHC  RL 
9:7  9:7 And Semjaza to whom thou hast given the power to be chief of his associates has made known conjurations. 9:8 And they have gone together to the daughters of men and have slept with them, with those RHC  RL 
9:9women, and have defiled themselves, and have revealed to them these sins.9:9 And the women have RHC  RL 
9:10brought forth giants, and thereby the whole earth has been filled with blood and wickedness.9:10 And now, behold, the souls which have died cry and lament to the gates of heaven, and their groans ascend, and they are not able to escape from the wickedness which is RHC  RL 
9:11committed on the earth.9:11 And thou knowest everything before it comes to pass, and thou knowest this and their circumstances, and yet thou dost not speak to us. What shall we therefore do in regard to this?" RHC  RL

10:1  10:1 Then the Most High, the Great and Holy One, spoke and sent Arsjalaljûr to the son of Lamech,  RHC  RL 
10:2and said to him:10:2 Tell him in my name: ‘Hide thyself!’ and reveal to him the end which is to come. For the whole earth will be destroyed, and the water of the deluge is about to come  RHC  RL 
10:3over the whole earth, and what is upon it will be destroyed.10:3 And now instruct him that he may escape RHC  RL 
10:4and his seed remain on the whole earth."10:4 And again the Lord spoke to Rufael: "Bind Azazel hand and foot, and put him in the darkness; make an opening  RHC  RL 
10:5in the desert, which is in Dudael, and put him there.10:5 And lay upon him rough and pointed rocks, and cover him with darkness that he may remain there forever, and cover his face that he may  RHC  RL 
10:6not see the light!10:6 And on the great day of judgment he will be cast into the fire.10:7 And heal the earth which the angels have defiled, and announce the healing of the earth that I will heal it, and that not all the sons of men shall be destroyed through the mystery of all the things which the RHC  RL 
10:8watchers have spoken and have taught their sons.10:8 And the whole earth was defiled RHC  RL 
10:9through the example of the deeds of Azazel; to him ascribe all the sins."10:9 And God said to Gabriel: "Go against the bastards and those cast off and against the children of fornication, and destroy the children of fornication and the children of the watchers from among men; lead them out, and let them loose that they may destroy each other by RHC  RL 
10:10murder; for their days shall not be long.10:10 And they will all supplicate thee, but their fathers will secure nothing for them, although they expect an everlasting life, and RHC  RL 
10:11that each one of them will live five hundred years."10:11 And God said to Michael: "Announce to Semjaza and to the others who are with him, who have bound themselves to women, to be destroyed RHC  RL 
10:12with them in all their contamination.10:12 When all their sons shall have slain one another, and they shall have seen the destruction of their beloved ones, bind them under the hills of the earth for seventy generations, till the day of their judgment and of their end, till the last judgment has RHC  RL 
10:13been passed for all eternity.10:13 And in those days they will be led to the abyss of fire, RHC  RL 
10:14in torture and in prison they will be locked for all eternity,10:14 And then he will burn, and be destroyed; they will be burned together from now on to the end of all  RHC  RL 
10:15generations.10:15 And destroy all souls of lust and the children of the watchers, because RHC  RL 
10:16they have oppressed mankind.10:16 Destroy all oppression from the face of the earth, and all wicked deeds shall cease, and the plant of justice and righteousness shall appear, and deeds will become a blessing: justice and righteousness will be planted in joy forever. RHC  RL 
10:17  10:17 Then all the just will bend the knee, and they will remain alive till they beget a thousand children, and they will complete all the days of their youth and their sabbath in peace.  RHC  RL 
10:18  10:18 And in those days the whole earth will be worked in justice, and will all be planted with trees, and  RHC  RL 
10:19will be full of blessings.10:19 And all the trees of desire will be planted on it, and vines will be planted on it; the vine planted on it will bear fruit in abundance. And of all the seed sown on it one measure will bear ten thousand, and one measure of olives will make  RHC  RL 
10:20ten presses of oil.10:20 And cleanse thou the earth of all oppression and all injustice and all sin and all wickedness and all uncleanness which are produced on the earth:  RHC  RL 
10:21eradicate them from the earth. 10:21 And all the children of men shall become just, and all the nations  RHC  RL 
10:22shall worship me as God, and bless and all will worship me.10:22 And the earth will be cleansed of all corruption and all sin and all punishment and all torment, and I will never again send a flood upon it, from generation to generation, to eternity."  RHC  RL

12:112:1 And previous to all these things Enoch was hidden, and not one of the children of men knew where he was  RHC  RL 
12:2hidden, and where he was, and what had become of him.12:2 And all his deeds were with the holy ones and with the watchers in his days.  RHC  RL 
12:3  12:3 And I, Enoch, was praising the great Lord and the King of the world, and, behold, the watchers  RHC  RL 
12:4called to me, Enoch, the scribe, and said to me:12:4 Enoch, thou scribe of justice, go, announce to the watchers of heaven, who have left the high heaven and the holy, eternal place, and have contaminated themselves with women, and have done as the children of men do, and have taken to themselves  RHC  RL 
12:5wives, and are contaminated in great contamination upon the earth.12:5 But upon earth they shall have no peace, nor forgiveness  RHC  RL 
12:6of sin; for they will not enjoy their children.12:6 They will see the murder of their beloved ones, and they will lament over the destruction of their children, and will petition to eternity, but mercy and peace will not be unto them."  RHC  RL

13:1  13:1 And Enoch, departing, said to Azazel: "Thou wilt have no peace; a great condemnation has come  RHC  RL 
13:2upon thee, and he [i.e. Rufael, cf. 10:4] will bind thee;13:2 and alleviation and intercession and mercy will not be unto thee, because thou hast taught oppression, and because of all the deeds of abuse,  RHC  RL 
13:3oppression, and sin which thou hast showed to the children of men."13:3 And then going, I spoke to them all  RHC  RL 
13:4together; and they were all afraid, fear and trembling seized them.13:4 And they asked me to write a memorial petition for them that they thereby might attain forgiveness, and to carry their memorial petition before  RHC  RL 
13:5God into heaven.13:5 For they could not, from now on, speak with him, nor could they raise their  RHC  RL 
13:6eyes towards heaven from shame on account of their sins for which they were being punished.13:6 Then I wrote this memorial petition, and prayed with reference to their souls and for each of their deeds, and for that which  RHC  RL 
13:7they had asked of me, that they thereby might obtain forgiveness and patience.13:7 And going I sat down near the waters of Dan in Dan, which is to the right [i.e. south] of the evening side [i.e. west] of Hermon, and read their memorial petition till I fell RHC  RL 
13:8asleep.13:8 And, behold, a dream came to me, and visions fell upon me, and I saw the vision of chastisement to show to the sons of heaven, and to upbraid them.  RHC  RL 
13:9  13:9 And having become awake I went to them, and they were all sitting assembled lamenting at  RHC  RL 
13:10Ublesjael, which is between the Lebanon and Seneser, with their faces covered.13:10 And I related before them all the visions that I had seen in my sleep, and commenced to speak those words of justice and to upbraid the watchmen of heaven.  RHC  RL

14:1  14:1 This writing is the word of justice and the admonition of the watchers, who are from eternity, as  RHC  RL 
14:2the Holy and Great One commanded it in this vision.14:2 I saw in my sleep what I now will relate with a tongue of flesh and with my breath, which the Great One has given to the mouth of men that they might  RHC  RL 
14:3converse with it and understand it in their hearts.14:3 As he has created and given to men the power to understand the word of knowledge, thus also he has created me and given to me the power to upbraid  RHC  RL 
14:4the watchers, the sons of heaven.14:4 I have written your petition, and in my vision it appeared to me thus, that your petition will not be granted in all the days of the world, and that judgment  RHC  RL 
14:5has been passed over you, and nothing will be granted unto you.14:5 And from now on ye will not ascend into heaven to all eternity, and upon earth, it has been decreed, RHC  RL 
14:6they shall bind you for all the days of the world.14:6 But before this ye will have seen the destruction of your beloved children, and ye will not be able to possess them, but they shall fall before  RHC  RL 
14:7you by the sword.14:7 Your petition for them will not be granted unto you, nor the one for yourselves; and while ye are weeping and praying ye cannot speak a single word from the writing which I have  RHC  RL 
14:8written."14:8 And the vision appeared to me thus: behold, clouds in the vision invited me and a fog invited me; and the course of the stars and lightning drove and pressed me, and the winds in RHC  RL 
14:9the vision gave me wings and drove me.14:9 And they lifted me up into heaven, and I went till I approached near a wall which was built of crystals and a tongue of fire surrounded it; and it began to cause me to fear.  RHC  RL 
14:10  14:10 And I went into the tongue of fire and approached near to a large house, which was built of crystals, and the walls of this house were like a floor inlaid with crystals, and the groundwork was  RHC  RL 
14:11of crystals.14:11 The ceiling was like the course of the stars and of the lightning, and  RHC  RL 
14:12Cherubim of fire were between them, and their heaven was water.14:12 A flaming fire surrounded the walls, and its  RHC  RL 
14:13doors burned with fire.14:13 And I went into this house, and it was hot like fire and cold like ice, and there  RHC  RL 
14:14was nothing pleasant and no life in it: fear covered me, and trembling seized me.14:14 And as I was shaking and trembling,  RHC  RL 
14:15I fell down on my face and saw in a vision.14:15 And behold, there was a second house, larger  RHC  RL 
14:16than the other, all whose doors stood open before me, and it was built with a tongue of fire.14:16 And in all things it excelled in grandeur and magnificence and size, so that I cannot describe to  RHC  RL 
14:17you its magnificence and its size.14:17 Its floor was fire, and above it was lightning and the course  RHC  RL 
14:18of the stars, and its ceiling was also a flaming fire.14:18 And I looked and saw therein a high throne; its appearance was like the hoar-frost, and its circuit like a shining sun and voices of RHC  RL 
14:19the Cherubim.14:19 And from under the great throne came streams of flaming fire, and it was impossible to look RHC  RL 
14:20at it.14:20 And he who is great in majesty sat thereon; his garment shone more brilliantly than the sun, and RHC  RL 
14:21was whiter than any hail.14:21 None of the angels were able to enter, nor any flesh to look upon the form of the face  RHC  RL 
14:22of the Majestic and Honored One.14:22 Fire of flaming fire was round him, and a great fire stood before him, and none of those who were around him could approach him; ten thousand times RHC  RL 
14:23ten thousand were before him; but he required not any holy counsel.14:23 And the holy ones who were  RHC  RL 
14:24near him did not leave day or night, nor did they depart from him.14:24 And I had had so long a veil upon my face, and I trembled; and the Lord called me with his own voice and said to me: "Come hither, RHC  RL 
14:25Enoch, and to my holy word!"14:25 And he cause me to arise and I went to the door; but I bent my face downwards.  RHC  RL

15:115:1 And he answered and spoke to me with his word: "Hear, and fear not, Enoch, thou just RHC  RL 
15:2man and scribe of justice, approach hither, and hear my words.15:2 And go, say to the watchers of heaven, who have sent thee, that thou shouldst petition for them: ‘Ye should petition for men, and not men RHC  RL 
15:3for you.15:3 Why have ye left the high, holy, and everlasting heaven, and lain with women, and defiled yourselves with the daughters of men, and taken wives unto yourselves, and acted like the children RHC  RL 
15:4of earth, and begotten giants as sons?15:4 While ye were spiritual, holy, having eternal life, ye defiled yourselves with women, and with the blood of flesh have begotten children, and have lusted after the blood of men, and have produced flesh and blood as they produce who die  RHC  RL 
15:5and are destroyed.15:5 Therefore I have given them wives that they might impregnate them and RHC  RL 
15:6children be born by them, as it is done on earth.15:6 Ye were formerly RHC  RL 
15:7spiritual, living an eternal life without death to all the generations of the world.15:7 Therefore I have not made for you any wives, for spiritual beings have their home in heaven.  RHC  RL 
15:8  15:8 And now the giants, who have been begotten from body and flesh, will be called evil spirits on  RHC  RL 
15:9earth, and their dwelling-places will be upon the earth.15:9 Evil spirits proceed from their bodies; because they are created from above, their beginning and first basis being from the holy watchers, RHC  RL 
15:10they will be evil spirits upon the earth, and will be called evil spirits.15:10 But the spirits of heaven have their dwelling-places in heaven, and the spirits of the earth, who were born on the earth, have their dwelling-places on earth.15:11 And the spirits of the giants, who cast themselves upon the clouds, will be destroyed and fall, and will battle and cause destruction on the earth, and do evil; they will take no kind of food, nor will they become RHC  RL 
15:12thirsty, and they will be invisible.15:12 And these spirits will not (?) rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them. RHC  RL

16:2completed over the watchers and the impious.16:2 And now to the watchers who have sent thee that thou shouldst petition for them who were formerly in heaven say: RHC  RL 
16:3  16:3 ‘Ye have been in heaven, and though the secrets were not yet revealed to you, still ye knew illegitimate mysteries, and these ye have, in the hardness of your hearts, related to the women, and through these mysteries women and men increase wickedness over the earth.’  RHC  RL

17:7there where all flesh wanders.17:7 And I saw the mountains of the black clouds of winter, and the place RHC  RL

18:4of heaven.18:4 And I saw the winds which turn the heavens, which lead down the course of the sun and RHC  RL 
18:5all the stars.18:5 And I saw the winds upon the earth which carry the clouds, and I saw the paths  RHC  RL 
18:6of the angels; I saw at the end of the earth the firmament of the heavens above.18:6 And I proceeded towards the south; and it burns day and night there where seven hills of precious stones are, RHC  RL 
18:7three towards the east, three towards the south.18:7 But of those towards the east, one of colored stone, one of pearls, and one of antimony; and those towards the south of red stone.  RHC  RL 
18:8  18:8 But the middle one reached up to heaven, like the throne of God, of alabaster, and the summit of the  RHC  RL 
18:9throne of sapphire.18:9 And I saw a burning fire which was in all the hills.18:10 And there I saw a place, beyond the great earth; there the waters collected.18:11 And I saw a great abyss in the earth, with columns of heavenly fire; and I saw among them columns of heavenly fire, which fall. and are without number, either towards RHC  RL 
18:12the height or towards the depth.18:12 And over that abyss I saw a place which had no firmament of heaven above it, and no foundation of earth beneath it, and no water above it, and no RHC  RL 
18:13birds upon it; it was a void place.18:13 And there I saw a terrible thing: seven stars, like great burning mountains  RHC  RL 
18:14and like spirits, that petitioned me.18:14 The angel said: "This is the place of the consummation of heaven and earth; it is a prison for the stars of heaven, and for the host of heaven.18:15 And the stars that roll over the fire are they who have transgressed the command of God before RHC  RL 
18:16their rising, because they did not come forth in their time.18:16 And he was enraged at them, and bound them till the time of the consummation of their sins in the year of the mystery." RHC  RL

21:1  21:1 And I went around to a place where not one thing took place.21:2 And I saw there something terrible, no high heavens, no RHC  RL 
21:3founded earth, but a void place, awful and terrible.21:3 And there I saw RHC  RL 
21:4seven stars of heaven, tied together to it, like great mountains, and flaming as if by fire.21:4 At that time RHC  RL 
21:5I said: "On account of what sin are these bound, and why have they been cast hither?"21:5 And then answered Uriel, one of the holy angels, who was with me, conducting me, and said to me: "Enoch, concerning what RHC  RL 
21:6dost thou ask, and concerning what dost thou inquire, and ask and art anxious?21:6 These are of the stars who have transgressed the command of God, the Highest, and are bound here till ten thousand worlds, RHC  RL 
21:7the number of the days of their sins, shall have been consummated."21:7 And from there I went to another place which was still more terrible than the former. And I saw a terrible thing: a great fire was there, which burned and flickered and appeared in sections; it was bounded by a complete abyss, great columns of RHC  RL 
21:8fire were allowed to fall into it; its extent and size I could not see, and I was unable to see its origin.21:8 At that time I said: "How RHC  RL 
21:9terrible this place is, and painful to look at!"21:9 At that time answered Uriel, one of the holy angels, who was with me; he answered and said to me: "Enoch, why such fear and RHC  RL 
21:10terror in thee concerning this terrible place and in the presence of this pain?"21:10 And he said to me: "This is the prison of the angels, and here they are held to eternity." RHC  RL

22:1  22:1 And from here I went to another place, and he showed me in the west a great and high mountain-chain and hard rocks RHC  RL 
22:2and four beautiful places.22:2 And beneath them there were places deep and broad and entirely smooth, as smooth as if a thing were rolled, and deep and dark to look at.  RHC  RL 
22:3  22:3 And this time, Rufael, one of the holy angels, who was with me, answered and said to me: "These beautiful places are intended for this, that upon them may be assembled the spirits, the souls of the dead; for they have been created, that here all the souls of the sons of men might be  RHC  RL 
22:4assembled.22:4 These places have been made their dwellings till the day of their judgment, and to their fixed period; and this period is long, till the great judgment will come over them."22:5 And I saw the spirits of the children of men who had died, RHC  RL 
22:5and their voices reached up to heaven, and lamented.22:6 At that time I asked the angel Rufael, who was  RHC  RL 
22:6with me, and said to him: "Whose soul is that one whose voice thus reaches to heaven and laments?"  RHC  RL 
22:7  22:7 And he answered and said to me, saying: "That is the spirit that proceeded from Abel, whom his brother Cain slew; and it laments on his account till his seed be destroyed from the face of the earth and his seed disappear from among the seed of men."  RHC  RL 
22:8  22:8 And at that time I therefore asked concerning him, and concerning the judgment of all, and said: "Why is one separated from the other?"  RHC  RL 
22:9  22:9 And he answered and said to me: "These three apartments are made in order to separate the souls of the dead. And thus are the souls of the just separated: there is a spring of  RHC  RL 
22:10water, above it, light.22:10 And thus also is one such apartment made for the sinners when they die, and are buried in the earth, without a judgment having been passed upon them during their RHC  RL 
22:11lives.22:11 Here their souls are separated in this great affliction until the great day of judgment and punishment and affliction upon the revilers to eternity, and the vengeance for their souls, and here  RHC  RL 
22:12he binds them to eternity.22:12 And if it was before eternity, then this apartment has been made for the souls of those who lament and those who reveal their destruction when they were killed in the days  RHC  RL 
22:13of the sinners.22:13 And thus it has been created for the souls of men who were not just, but sinners, who were complete in their crimes; and they will be with criminals like themselves; but their souls will not be killed on the day of judgment and will not be taken from here."  RHC  RL 
22:14  22:14 At that time I blessed the Lord of glory, and said: "Blessed is my Lord, the Lord of glory and of justice, who rules all things to eternity!"  RHC  RL

24:3joining with the other.24:3 And the seventh hill was between these; and in their  RHC  RL

24:5its fruit is beautiful, like the fruit of the vine and the palm-tree.24:5 And at that time I said: "Behold, this is a beautiful tree and beautiful to look at, and its leaves are fair, and its fruit very pleasant to the eye."  RHC  RL

25:3know, but especially concerning this tree."25:3 And he answered me, saying: "This high mountain which thou hast seen, whose summit is like the throne of God, is the throne where the holy and great God of glory, the Eternal King, will sit when he shall descend to visit  RHC  RL 
25:4the earth with goodness,25:4 And this tree of beautiful fragrance cannot be touched by any flesh until the time of the great judgment; when all things will be atoned for and consummated RHC  RL

25:6  25:6 Then they will rejoice greatly, and be glad in the Holy One; they will let its fragrance enter their members, and live a long life upon the earth, as thy fathers lived; and in their days no sorrow or sickness or trouble or affliction will touch them."  RHC  RL

41:8  41:8 For the shining sun makes many changes for a blessing and for a curse, and the course of the path of the moon is light to the just, and darkness to the sinners in the name of the Lord who created a separation between light and darkness, and divided the spirits of men, and strengthened the spirits of the just, in the name of his own justice.  RHC  RL

61:2  61:2 And I asked the angel, saying: "Why have these taken the long cords, and have gone away?" And he said to me: "They went out to measure."  RHC  RL 
61:3  61:3 And the angel, who went with me, said to me: "These bring the measures of the just and the ropes of the just, that they may support themselves on the name of the Lord of the spirits to all eternity.  RHC  RL 
61:4  61:4 And the chosen will begin and dwell with the chosen, and these measures will be given to faith [fidelity], and will strengthen the word of justice.  RHC  RL 
61:5  61:5 And these measures will reveal all the secrets of the depths of the earth, and those who have been destroyed by the desert, and those who have been devoured by the fish of the sea, and by the beasts, that they return and support themselves on the day of the Chosen One, for none will be destroyed before the Lord of the spirits, and none can be destroyed.  RHC  RL 
61:6  61:6 And then received a command all who dwell in the heights of heaven, and ONE power, and ONE voice, and ONE light, like the fire, was given to them.  RHC  RL 
61:7  61:7 And that one first they blessed and exalted and glorified with wisdom, and showed themselves wise in speech and in the spirit of life.  RHC  RL 
61:8  61:8 And the Lord of the spirits placed his Chosen One on the throne of his glory, and he will judge all the deeds of the holy ones in heaven, and will weigh their deeds on scales.  RHC  RL 
61:9  61:9 And when he shall raise his countenance to judge their paths that are secret by the word of the name of the Lord of the spirits, and their path in the way of the just judgment of the highest God, then they will all speak with ONE voice, and bless, and praise, and exalt, and glorify the name of the Lord of the spirits.  RHC  RL 
61:10  61:10 And then will cry out all the host of the heavens, and all the holy ones above, and the host of God, Cherubim and Seraphim and Ophanim, and all the angels of power, and all the angels of supremacies, and the Chosen One, and the other powers on the earth, above the water, on that day;61:11 and will raise ONE voice, and will bless, and glorify, and praise, and exalt, in the spirit of faith [fidelity], and in the spirit of wisdom and of patience, and in the spirit of mercy, and in the spirit of judgment and of peace, and in the spirit of goodness, and will all say with ONE voice; ‘Blessed is he, and blessed be the name of the Lord of the spirits, in eternity, and to eternity.’ RHC  RL 
61:12  61:12 And all who do not sleep in high heavens will bless him; all his holy ones, who are in heaven, will bless him, and all the chosen, who dwell in the garden of life, and every spirit of light, who is able to bless, and glorify, and exalt, and say: ‘Holy,’ to thy sacred name, and all flesh, which will exceedingly praise and bless thy name to all eternity.  RHC  RL 
61:13  61:13 For great is the mercy of the Lord of the spirits, and he is slow to anger, and all his doing, and all his power, as much as he has made, he has revealed to the just and to the chosen, in the name of the Lord of the spirits.  RHC  RL

62:1  62:1 And thus the Lord commanded the kings and the powerful and the exalted and those who dwell on the earth, and said; "Open your eyes, and lift up your horns, if ye are able to recognize the Chosen One."  RHC  RL 
62:2  62:2 And the Lord of the spirits sat on the throne of his glory, and the spirit of justice was poured out over him, and the word of his mouth slew all the sinners and all the impious, and they were destroyed before his face.  RHC  RL 
62:3  62:3 Then will stand up on that day all the kings and the powerful and the exalted and those who hold the earth, and will see him and will know that he sits on the throne of his glory, and that the just are judged in justice before him, and that there is no word spoken in vain before him.  RHC  RL 
62:4  62:4 And pain will come over them, like a woman who is in travail, and to whom the birth is hard, when the son enters the mouth of the mother, and she has pain in giving birth.62:5 And one portion of them will look upon the other, and will tremble and cast down their countenances, and pain will seize them, when they see this Son of the woman sitting on the throne of his glory.  RHC  RL 
62:6  62:6 And the powerful kings, and all who hold the earth, will honor, and bless, and exalt him who rules over all, who was hidden.  RHC  RL 
62:7  62:7 For formerly the Son of Man was hidden, and the Most High preserved him before his power, and has revealed him to the chosen.  RHC  RL 
62:8  62:8 And the congregation of the holy and the chosen will be sown, and all the chosen will stand before him on that day.  RHC  RL 
62:9  62:9 And all the powerful kings and the exalted and they who rule the earth will fall before him upon their faces, and will worship and will hope in this Son of Man, and will petition him and ask him for mercy.  RHC  RL 
62:10  62:10 And that Lord of the spirits will only press them, that they hasten to leave his presence and their countenances will be filled with shame, and darkness will be heaped upon their countenances.  RHC  RL 
62:11  62:11 And the angels of punishment will receive them to take vengeance on them, because they have abused his children and his chosen.  RHC  RL 
62:12  62:12 And they will be a spectacle for the just and for his chosen; they will rejoice over them, because the wrath of the Lord of the spirits rests upon them, and the sword of the Lord of the spirits is drunk with them.  RHC  RL 
62:13  62:13 And the just and chosen will be saved on that day, and will henceforth not see the face of the sinners and of the unjust.  RHC  RL 
62:14  62:14 And the Lord of the spirits will dwell over them, and they will dwell with this Son of Man, and will eat and lie down and rise again with him to all eternity.  RHC  RL 
62:15  62:15 And the just and the chosen will have risen from the earth, and will have ceased to cast down their faces, and will be clothed with the garments of life.  RHC  RL

63:1  63:1 And in those days the powerful kings, who hold the earth, will petition the angels of punishment, to whom they are delivered, that they should give them a little rest, so that they could fall  RHC  RL 
63:2down and worship before the Lord of the spirits, and could acknowledge their sins before him.63:2 And they will bless and glorify the Lord of the spirits, and will say: "Blessed is the Lord of the spirits, and the Lord of kings, the Lord of the powerful, and the Lord of the rulers, and the Lord of glory, and the Lord of wisdom,  RHC  RL 
63:3and every secret is clear.63:3 And thy power is to all generations, and thy glory to all eternity: deep are thy secrets all and without number, and thy justice without reckoning.  RHC  RL 
63:4  63:4 Now we know that we should praise and bless the Lord of kings, and him who rules over all the kings."  RHC  RL 
63:5  63:5 And they will say: "Who will give us rest, that we might praise and thank and bless him, and be believers before his glory?  RHC  RL 
63:6  63:6 And now we long for a little rest, and do not find it; we are driven away, and do not receive it; the light has ceased before us, and darkness is our dwelling-place to all eternity. RHC  RL 
63:7  63:7 For before him we have not believed, and have not honored the name of the Lord of the kings, and we have not praised the Lord in all his doing, and our hope was in the sceptre of our kingdom and in our glory.  RHC  RL 
63:8  63:8 And in the day of our trial and our trouble he did not save us, and we do not find rest to believe that our Lord is faithful in all his deeds and in all his judgments and his justice, and that his judgment does not respect persons.63:9 And we shall disappear before his face on account of our deeds, and all our sins are counted in justice." RHC  RL 
63:10  63:10 Now they will say to them: "Our souls are satisfied with unjust goods, but it does not prevent our going to the flames of the pain of hell."  RHC  RL 
63:11  63:11 And after that their countenances will be filled with darkness and shame before that Son of Man, and they will be expelled from his presence, and a sword will dwell in their midst before his countenance.  RHC  RL

65:1  65:1 And in those days Noah saw the earth that it was curved, and that its destruction was near.65:2 And he lifted up his feet from there, and went to the ends of the earth, and called to his grandfather Enoch; RHC  RL 
65:3and Noah said with a bitter voice: "Hear me! hear me! hear me!" three times.65:3 And he said to him: "Tell me what is it that has been done on the earth, that the earth is so tired out  RHC  RL 
65:4and shaken? May I not be destroyed with it!"65:4 And after this time there was a great trembling on the earth, and a voice was heard from heaven, and I fell on my face.65:5 And Enoch, my grandfather, came and stood by me and said to me: "Why dost thou so bitterly and lamentingly cry to me? RHC  RL 
65:6  65:6 A command has come from before the presence of the Lord over all those who dwell on the earth, that their end is at hand, because they know all the secrets of the angels, and all the violence of the satans, and all the powers of secrecy, and all the powers of those who practice sorcery and the powers of fascination, and the powers of those who make metal images RHC  RL 
65:7of the whole earth;65:7 and also how silver is produced from the dust of the earth, and how soft metal  RHC  RL

65:9which produces them, and an angel who stands in it; and that angel is excellent."65:9 And after that my grandfather Enoch took hold of me with his hand, and raised me up, and said to me: "Go, for I have  RHC  RL 
65:10asked the Lord of the spirits concerning this shaking of the earth.65:10 And he said to me: ‘On account of their injustice their judgment is completed; and will not be counted before me concerning the months which they have searched out, and through which they have learned that the earth  RHC  RL 
65:11will be destroyed and those who live thereon.65:11 And for them there will be no place of refuge to eternity, because they have showed them that which was secret, and they will be judged; but not thou, my son; the Lord of the spirits knows that thou art clean and free of this blame concerning the secrets.  RHC  RL 
65:12  65:12 And he has strengthened thy name among the holy, and will preserve thee from those who dwell on the earth, and will strengthen thy seed in justice for kings and great honors; and from thy seed will proceed the fountain of the just and the holy, without number, to eternity."  RHC  RL

67:3earth does not remain empty.67:3 And I will strengthen thy seed before me to all eternity, and will scatter those who dwell with thee over the face of the earth, and it [i.e. the seed] will be blessed and increased over the earth in the name of the Lord."  RHC  RL 
67:4  67:4 And they will enclose those angels who have showed injustice in that flaming valley which my grandfather Enoch showed to me before, in the west, in the mountains of gold  RHC  RL 
67:5and of silver and of iron and of soft metal and of zinc.67:5 And I saw that valley, in which there was a great  RHC  RL 
67:6shaking and a shaking of the waters.67:6 And as this took place there was produced from that flaming, flowing metal, and out of the shaking that shook them, at that place, an odor of sulphur, and it united with those waters; and that valley of the angels who had led astray burned RHC  RL 
67:7under that earth.67:7 And through the valley of that earth come rivers of fire, where those angels who had led astray those who dwell on the earth are condemned.  RHC  RL 
67:8  67:8 And those waters will be in those days for the kings and the powerful and exalted and those who dwell on the earth, a medicine of the soul and of the body, but for a judgement of the spirit, because their spirits are full of lust, that they be punished in their bodies, because they have denied the Lord of the spirits,  RHC  RL 
67:9and see their judgments daily, and still believe not in his name.67:9 And as the burning of their bodies increases there will be a change in their spirit to all eternity;  RHC  RL 
67:10for no one will speak a vain word before the Lord of the spirits.67:10 For the judgment comes over them,  RHC  RL 
67:11because they believe in the lust of their flesh, and deny the spirit of the Lord.67:11 And those waters themselves, in those days, suffer a change, for when those angels shall be condemned on those days, the heat of those fountains of the waters changes, and when the angels ascend, this water of the  RHC  RL

69:7of death to the sons of men.69:7 And from his hand they have come over those who dwell RHC  RL

69:12it devours me.69:12 And the fifth is named Kasdeja; he has taught the sons of men all the wicked beatings of the spirits and the demons, the beatings of the birth in the womb, that it [i.e. the birth] fall, and the beatings of the soul, the bites of the serpent, and the beatings RHC  RL

72:7he comes forth from the fourth of these six portals towards the east.72:7 And in that fourth portal, from which the sun comes forth in the first month, there are twelve window openings, from which a flame proceeds when they are opened in  RHC  RL 
72:8their time.72:8 When the sun rises from the heavens he comes out of that fourth portal thirty  RHC  RL

72:10morning.72:10 And in that day the day is two parts longer than the night, and the day is exactly ten parts and the night eight parts.72:11 And the sun comes forth from this fourth portal and sets in the fourth and returns to the fifth portal of the east thirty mornings, and comes forth from it and descends into the fifth RHC  RL 
72:12portal.72:12 From then on the day is lengthened two parts, and the day is eleven parts, and the night RHC  RL 
72:13is shortened and is seven parts.72:13 And the sun returns to the east and goes into the sixth RHC  RL 
72:14portal, and comes forth and descends into the sixth portal, thirty-one mornings on account of its sign.72:14 And on that day the day is longer than the night, and the day will be double the night, and the day RHC  RL 
72:15is twelve parts, and the night is shorter and is six parts.72:15 And the sun is raised so that the day is shortened and the night is lengthened, and the sun returns to the east and enters the RHC  RL 
72:16sixth portal and rises from it and sets thirty mornings.72:16 And when the thirty mornings are completed RHC  RL 
72:17the day diminishes by exactly ONE part, and the day is eleven parts and the night seven parts.72:17 And the sun comes forth from this sixth portal in the west and goes to the east and rises in the fifth portal RHC  RL 
72:18thirty mornings and sets in the west again in the fifth portal.72:18 On that day the day diminishes two parts, and the day will be ten parts and the night eight parts.72:19 And the sun comes forth from that fifth portal and descends into the fifth portal of the west and rises in the fourth portal, on account of its sign, RHC  RL

72:21nine parts.72:21 And the sun comes forth from that portal and sets in the west and returns to the east and comes forth RHC  RL 
72:22from the third portal thirty mornings and sets in the west in the third portal.72:22 And on that day the night is longer than the day to the thirtieth morning, and the day becomes shorter daily to the thirtieth morning, and the night is exactly ten parts and the day eight RHC  RL

72:24into the second portal of the east thirty mornings, and in like manner into the second portal in the west of the heavens.72:24 And on that day the night is eleven RHC  RL 
72:25parts and the day seven parts.72:25 And the sun comes forth on that day from the second portal and descends in the west into the second portal and returns to the east in the first portal thirty-one RHC  RL 
72:26mornings and descends into the west into the first portal.72:26 And on that day the night will be so long that it will be the double of the day, and the night is exactly twelve parts and RHC  RL 
72:27the day six parts.72:27 And with that the sun has completed his stations, and he again returns to his station and enters in this portal thirty mornings; he rises and sets  RHC  RL 
72:28opposite it in the west.72:28 And on that day the night diminishes in length by ONE part, and RHC  RL 
72:29is eleven parts and the day seven parts.72:29 And the sun returns and goes into the second portal of the east and returns to his course thirty mornings, rising RHC  RL 
72:30and setting.72:30 And on that day the night diminishes in length, and the night is ten parts RHC  RL 
72:31and the day eight parts.72:31 And on that day the sun comes forth from the second portal and descends in the west and returns to the east and rises in the third portal thirty-one mornings and sets in the west of the heavens. RHC  RL 
72:32  72:32 And on that day the night is shortened and is nine parts, and the day is nine parts, and the night RHC  RL

72:34of the sun they are made separated.72:34 On that account the day-course becomes  RHC  RL 
72:35longer daily and the night-course shorter nightly.72:35 And this is the law and the course of the sun and his return when he returns; sixty times he returns and comes out, that is the great, eternal luminary which is called the sun to all eternity.72:36 And that which thus ascends is the great luminary, as it is called on account of RHC  RL 
72:37its appearance, according to the command of the Lord.72:37 And thus he ascends and descends, and is not diminished, and does not rest, but runs day and night in his chariot, and his light shines seven times stronger than that of the moon; but as regards size they are both equal.  RHC  RL

73:1  73:1 And after this law I saw another law with reference to the smaller luminary whose name is moon.  RHC  RL 
73:2  73:2 And her circuit is like the circuit of the heavens, and her chariot in which she rides is driven by the wind, and in a measure light is given to her. RHC  RL 
73:3  73:3 Every month her ascent and her descent is changed; her days are like the days of the sun, and when her light is equal [full] her light is the seventh part of the light of the sun.  RHC  RL 
73:4  73:4 And thus she rises. And her beginning in the east comes forth on the thirtieth morning, and on that day she becomes visible and is for you the beginning of the moon, on the thirtieth morning, together with the sun in the portal whence the sun proceeds.  RHC  RL 
73:5  73:5 And the one half is prominent by the seventh part, and her whole circuit is empty, and there is no light with the exception of the one seventh part of the  RHC  RL 
73:6fourteen parts of light.73:6 And on that day when she takes up the seventh part and the half of her light, her light  RHC  RL 
73:7contains one seventh and one seventh part and the half of it. She sets with the sun.73:7 And when the sun rises the moon also rises with him and takes a half portion of light, and in that night in the beginning of her morning on her first day the moon sets with the sun, and RHC  RL 
73:8is darkened in that night, with the seventh and the seventh portions and the half of one.73:8 And she will rise on that day with exactly the seventh part, and will come out and become smaller from the rising of the sun and shine the rest of her days, with the seventh and the seventh part.  RHC  RL

74:1  74:1 And I saw another course and law for her, making her monthly course according to that law.  RHC  RL 
74:2  74:2 And Uriel, the holy angel, who is the leader of them all, showed me all things, and I wrote down all their positions as he showed them to me, and I wrote down their months  RHC  RL 
74:3as they were and the appearance of their lights till fifteen days are completed.74:3 And in seven single parts she completes all her light in the east, and in seven single parts she completes all her RHC  RL 
74:4darkness in the west.74:4 And in certain months she changes her settings, and in certain months she goes  RHC  RL 
74:5her peculiar course.74:5 And in two the moon sets with the sun, in those two portals which are in the middle,  RHC  RL 
74:6in the third and in the fourth portal.74:6 She comes forth seven days, and turns and returns again by that portal through which the sun comes; and in that she completes all her light and recedes from the sun; and enters in eight  RHC  RL 
74:7days into the sixth portal, through which the sun comes forth.74:7 And when the sun comes out of the fourth portal she comes out seven days, so that she comes out of the fifth, and returns again in seven days into the fourth portal and completes all her light, and recedes and enters the  RHC  RL 
74:8first portal in eight days.74:8 And she returns again in seven days to the fourth portal, through which the RHC  RL 
74:9sun comes forth.74:9 Thus I saw their places, the sun rising and setting according to the order of their months.74:10 And in those days, if five years are taken together, the sun has thirty superabundant days; and all the days which belong  RHC  RL 
74:11to him for one of these five years, when they are full, are three hundred and sixty-four days.74:11 And the superabundance of the sun and of the stars is six days; of five years, each at six, are thirty days, and the  RHC  RL 
74:12moon recedes from the sun and the stars thirty days.74:12 And the moon brings in all the years exact, so that their place neither precedes nor recedes ONE day, but she changes the years with exact justice in three hundred and sixty-four days.74:13 Three years have one thousand and ninety-two days; and five years, eighteen hundred and twenty days; so that there will be in eight years two thousand nine hundred and twelve days.74:14 To the moon alone belongs for three years one thousand and sixty-two days, and for five years she recedes fifty days, viz. to the sum of these are added sixty-two days.74:15 And thus in five years there will be seventeen hundred and seventy days, so that the days of the moon for eight years will be two thousand eight hundred and thirty-two days.74:16 For her receding in eight years is eighty days, and all the RHC  RL 
74:17days she remains behind in eight years are eighty days.74:17 And the year is justly finished, in accordance with their stations and the stations of the sun, rising through their portals, through which they rise and set thirty days. RHC  RL

75:1  75:1 And the leaders of the heads of the thousands, who are over all creation and over all the stars, are also with the four intercalary days, which cannot be separated from their places, according to the whole reckoning of the years, and these serve the four days which are not RHC  RL 
75:2counted in the reckoning of the years.75:2 And on their account men make a mistake in them, for these luminaries serve in reality on the stations of the world, one in the first portal and one in the third portal and one in the fourth portal and one in the sixth portal; and the harmony of the course of the world RHC  RL 
75:3is brought about by its separate three hundred and sixty-four stations.75:3 For the signs and the times and the years and the days, these the angel Uriel showed to me, he whom the eternal Lord of glory had placed over all the luminaries of heaven in the heavens and in the world, that they should rule on the surface of the heavens, and be seen on the earth, and be leaders for the day and for the night, viz. the sun and the moon and the stars and all the serving creatures who keep their course in all the chariots RHC  RL 
75:4of heaven.75:4 The angel Uriel showed me also twelve openings in the circuit of the chariot of the sun from which the feet [i.e. the rays] of the sun come forth; and from them comes the warmth  RHC  RL 
75:5over the earth, when they are opened at times destined for them.75:5 There are also some for the winds and  RHC  RL 
75:6for the spirit of the dew, when they are opened at times, standing open in the heavens at the ends.75:6 Twelve doors I saw in the heavens, in the ends of the earth, out of which come forth the sun and the moon and the stars  RHC  RL 
75:7and all the deeds of heaven, from the east and from the west.75:7 And many window-openings are to the left and to the right thereof, and ONE window in its time produces warmth, like those portals from which the stars come forth as he has commanded them,  RHC  RL 
75:8and in which they set according to their number.75:8 And I saw chariots in heaven, running  RHC  RL

76:1  76:1 And on the ends of the earth I saw for all the winds twelve portals opened, from RHC  RL 
76:2which the winds come and blow over the earth.76:2 Three of them are open on the face [i.e. the east] of the heavens, and three in the west, and three on the right [i.e. south] of heaven, and  RHC  RL 
76:3three on the left [i.e. north].76:3 And the first three are those towards the east, and three towards the  RHC  RL 
76:4north, and three behind those which are on the left, towards the south, and three in the west.76:4 Through four of these come winds of blessing and of peace, and through those eight come winds of injury: when they are sent they bring destruction to all the earth and to the water on it and to all those who dwell on it and to everything that is in the water and on the land.  RHC  RL 
76:5  76:5 And the first wind from these portals, which is called the eastern, comes forth from the first portal which is towards the east, inclining towards the south; out of it comes destruction, dryness and heat RHC  RL 
76:6and death.76:6 And through the second middle portal comes forth the right mixture; there come forth rain and fruitfulness and peace and dew. And through the third portal, which is towards the north, come forth coldness and dryness.  RHC  RL 
76:7  76:7 And after these the winds towards the south come forth through three portals; firstly through the first portal of RHC  RL 
76:8them, which inclines towards the east, there comes forth the wind of heat.76:8 And from the middle portal, which is beside that one, there  RHC  RL 
76:9come forth a sweet incense and dew and rain and peace and life.76:9 And through the third portal, which is towards the west, there come forth dew and rain and grasshoppers and destruction.  RHC  RL 
76:10  76:10 And after these northerly winds from the seventh portal, which is towards the east, inclining to the south, there come forth dew and rain, grasshoppers and destruction.76:11 And out of the middle portal direct there come forth rain and dew and life and peace, and through the third portal, which is towards the west, which inclines towards the north, there come forth fog and hoar-frost and snow and rain and dew and grasshoppers. RHC  RL 
76:12  76:12 And after these the winds which are towards the west: through the first portal, which inclines towards the north, there come forth dew and rain and grasshoppers and coldness and snow and frost.76:13 And from the middle portal there come forth dew and rain, peace and blessing, and through the last portal, which is towards the south, there come forth dryness and destruction, burning and death.76:14 Thereby the twelve portals of the four portals [directions] of heaven are completed, and all their laws and all their destructions and their virtues I have showed to you, my son Methuselah. RHC  RL

78:12and when she shines in full her light is completed in the heavens.78:12 And on the first RHC  RL 
78:13day she is called the new moon, for on that day the light is raised upon her.78:13 And she is completed exactly on the day the sun descends in the west and when at night she ascends from the east and shines all night till the sun rises opposite her and the moon is seen opposite the sun.78:14 Whence the light of the moon comes, there again she decreases till all her light disappears, and the days of the moon cease, and her circuit remains empty without light.78:15 And three months she makes thirty days in her time, and three months she makes each time twenty-nine days, in which she makes her decrease, in the first time and in the first portal for one hundred and seventy-seven days.78:16 And in the time of her departure she is seen each time thirty days during three months, and each time twenty-nine days during three months.78:17 At night she appears each time as a man twenty times, and during the day like the heavens, for there is nothing in her except her light. RHC  RL

82:16all the days of his government that he rules are ninety-one days.82:16 And these are the signs of the days which are seen on the earth in the days of his government: sweat and heat and anxiety, and all the trees producing fruit, and the leaves appearing on all the trees, and the harvest of wheat, and the blooming of roses, and all the flowers blooming in the fields, but the trees of winter become withered.82:17 And these are the names of the leaders who are under them: Berkeel, Zalbesael, and one other who is added, a head of a thousand, called Helojaseph; and ended are the days of the power of this one. RHC  RL 
82:18  82:18 The other leader, who is after them, is Helemmelek, whom they call the shining sun, and all the days  RHC  RL 
82:19of his light are ninety-one days.82:19 And these are the signs of the days of the earth: burning heat, dryness, and the trees bringing their fruit to ripeness and completion, and the sheep mate and become pregnant; and all the fruit of the earth is gathered in, and everything that is  RHC  RL 
82:20in the fields; and the making of wine; this takes place in the days of his power.82:20 These are the names and the orders and the subordinate leaders of those heads of the thousands: Gedael and Keel and Heel, and the name of the head of a thousand, which is added to them, Asfael; and completed are the days of his power.  RHC  RL

83:1  83:1 And now, my son Methuselah, I will show thee all the visions that I have seen, relating  RHC  RL 
83:2them before thee.83:2 Two visions I saw before I took a wife, and the one of them was not similar to the other; the first time, when I was learning to write, the second time, before I took thy mother I saw an awful  RHC  RL 
83:3vision; and on their account I petitioned to the Lord.83:3 As I was reposing in the house of Malalel, my grandfather, I saw there in a vision that the heavens were lowered and disappeared and fell on  RHC  RL 
83:4the earth.83:4 And as it fell on the earth I saw the earth that it was devoured in a great abyss, and mountains descended on mountains, and hills sank upon hills, and high trees were torn  RHC  RL 
83:5from the trunks, and fell down and sank into the abyss.83:5 And on account of this a speech fell into my mouth,  RHC  RL 
83:6and I began to cry and to say: "The earth is destroyed!"83:6 And Malalel, my grandfather, aroused me, as I was reposing near him, and said to me: "Why dost thou cry so, my son, and why RHC  RL 
83:7dost thou lament so?"83:7 And I related to him the whole vision which I had seen, and he said to me: "A terrible thing thou hast seen, my son, and the power of the vision of thy dream is concerning the secrets of all the sins of the earth; it will be about to descend into the abyss and be destroyed  RHC  RL 
83:8terribly.83:8 And now, my son, arise and petition the Lord of glory—since thou art a believer—that a remnant may remain on the earth and all the earth be not destroyed.  RHC  RL 
83:9  83:9 My son, from heaven all this will come on the earth, and over the earth there will be a great  RHC  RL 
83:10destruction."83:10 After that I arose and prayed and petitioned, and wrote down my prayer for the generations of the world, and I will show thee everything, my son, Methuselah.83:11 And as I went out below, and looked at the heavens and the sun rising in the east, and the moon descending in the west, and some few stars, and everything as he had known it from the first, I blessed the Lord of the judgment, and to him I gave greatness, because he led forth the sun from the windows of the east, and he ascends and rises on the surface of the heavens, and elevates himself, and goes the path which is shown to him. RHC  RL

84:1  84:1 And I raised my hands in justice, and blessed the Holy and the Great One, and I spoke with the breath of my mouth and with the tongue of flesh, which God has made for the children of men, that they should speak with it, and gave them breath and the tongue and the mouth, that they might speak therewith:  RHC  RL 
84:2  84:2 Blessed art thou, O Lord, King both great and powerful in thy greatness, the Lord of all the creation of heaven, King of kings, and God of all the world, thy Godship and thy kingdom and thy greatness will remain in eternity, and to all eternity, and to all the generations thy power, and all the heavens are thy throne in eternity, and all the earth thy footstool in eternity and to all eternity.  RHC  RL 
84:3  84:3 For thou hast made and dost govern all things, and nothing is too difficult for thee, and no wisdom escapes thee; she does not turn away from her throne, thy throne, and not from thy face, and thou dost know and see and hear all things, and there is nothing that is hidden before thee, for thou dost see all things.  RHC  RL

84:6  84:8 And now, my Lord, annihilate from the earth the flesh which has angered thee, but the flesh of justice and of rectitude establish as a plant of the seed to eternity, and do not hide thy face from the prayer of thy servant, O Lord!"  RHC  RL

85:1  85:1 And after this I saw another dream, and I will show thee all, my son.85:2 And Enoch began, and said to his son Methuselah: "To thee, my son, I will speak; hear my words, and lend thy ear to the vision of the dream of thy father.85:3 Before I took thy mother Edna, I saw in a vision on my couch, and behold, a bullock came out of the earth, and this bullock was white; and after him there came a female of the same species, and together with this one came other cattle, one of them was black and RHC  RL

85:5I could no longer see that red one.85:5 And that black one grew, and a cow came with it, and RHC  RL 
85:6I saw that many cattle, like it and following it, came from it.85:6 And that cow, the first one, came from the presence of that first bullock, seeking that red one, and did RHC  RL 
85:7not find it, and then raised a great cry, and hunted it.85:7 And I looked until that  RHC  RL 
85:8first bullock came to her and quieted her; and from that time she did not cry aloud.85:8 And after that she brought forth another white bullock, and after that she brought forth many bullocks and black cows. RHC  RL 
85:9  85:9 And I saw in my sleep that white bullock grow and become a large white bullock, and from him came many white bullocks, and they were similar to him.85:10 And they commenced to beget many white bullocks, and these were similar to them, and one followed the other.  RHC  RL

86:5and these all became pregnant, and brought forth elephants and camels and asses.86:5 And all the bullocks feared them, and were affrighted at them; and they commenced to bite with their teeth, and to devour, and to push with their RHC  RL

89:1  89:1 And one of those four went to that white bullock, and taught him a mystery while he was trembling; he was born a bullock, and became a man, and he made for himself a large vessel, and lived in it;  RHC  RL 
89:2and three bullocks lived with him in that vessel, and it was covered over above them.89:2 And I again raised my eyes towards heaven, and saw a high roof and seven sluices to it; and those sluices RHC  RL 
89:3emptied much water into a yard.89:3 And I saw again, and behold fountains were opened on the earth, in that great yard; and that water began to swell, and to be lifted above the land,  RHC  RL 
89:4and caused that yard to disappear, until all the land was covered with water.89:4 And the water and the darkness and the fog increased over it; and as I looked at the height of this water, this water was elevated over that yard, and emptied over the yard, and stood on the earth.  RHC  RL 
89:5  89:5 And all the bullocks which were in the yard were collected, so that I immediately saw how they sank down and  RHC  RL 
89:6came to naught, and were destroyed in that water.89:6 But that vessel swam on the water, and all the bullocks and elephants and camels and asses on the earth sank down, and all the animals; and I was not able to see them, and they were unable to come out, but were destroyed, and sank down into the abyss.89:7 And again I saw in the vision till those sluices were put away from that high roof, and the fountains RHC  RL 
89:8of the earth dried up, and other abysses were opened.89:8 Then the water began to run into these till the earth became uncovered; but that vessel reached the earth, and the darkness RHC  RL 
89:9retreated, and it became light.89:9 But that white bullock, which had become a man, came out of that vessel, and the three bullocks with him; and one of the three bullocks was white, similar to that [first] bullock, and one of them was red like blood, and one black; and that one, the white bullock, went away from them. RHC  RL 
89:10  89:10 And they began to bring forth animals of the desert and birds, so that there arose out of them a varied diversity of kinds: lions and panthers and dogs and wolves and hyenas and wild boars and foxes and squirrels and hogs and falcons and vultures and buzzards and eagles and crows; and among them was born a white bullock.89:11 And they began to bite one another; but that white bullock which was born among them begat a wild ass and a white bullock with it; and the RHC  RL 
89:12wild ass increased.89:12 But that bull which was born from him begat a black wild boar and a white RHC  RL 
89:13sheep; and this wild boar begat many boars, but that sheep produced twelve sheep.89:13 And when these twelve sheep had grown, they gave one of them to the asses, and these asses then gave that sheep to the wolves, and that sheep grew up among the wolves.89:14 And the Lord brought the eleven sheep to live with it, and to pasture with it among the wolves; and they increased, and became many herds of sheep.89:15 And the wolves began to fear, and oppressed them till they [the wolves] finally destroyed their [i.e. the sheep’s] young, and threw their young into a stream of much water; but these sheep began to RHC  RL 
89:16cry aloud, on account of their young, before the Lord.89:16 And a sheep which had been saved from the wolves fled, and escaped to the wild asses; and I saw the sheep as they lamented and cried and asked their Lord with all their power, till that Lord of the sheep descended at the voice of the sheep from his high abode, and came and looked after them.89:17 And he called to that sheep which had escaped from the wolves, and spoke with it concerning the wolves, that it should  RHC  RL 
89:18counsel them not to touch the sheep.89:18 And that sheep went to the wolves by the voice of the Lord; and another sheep met that sheep, and went with it, and these two came together to the abode of those wolves, and spoke with them, and admonished them that henceforth they should not touch the  RHC  RL 
89:19sheep.89:19 And then I saw the wolves, and how they exceedingly oppressed the sheep RHC  RL 
89:20with all their power; and the sheep cried aloud.89:20 And their Lord came to the sheep, and began to beat those wolves, and the wolves began to lament; but the sheep became RHC  RL 
89:21quiet, and from then on did not cry.89:21 And I saw the sheep till they had gone away from the wolves, and the wolves were blinded as to their eyes, and those wolves went out that they might follow the sheep RHC  RL 
89:22with all their power.89:22 And the Lord of the sheep went with them, leading them, and all the sheep RHC  RL 
89:23followed him; and his face was shining, and this appearance terrible and sublime.89:23 But the wolves RHC  RL 
89:24commenced to follow those sheep till they reached them in a sea of water.89:24 And this sea of water was divided, and the water stood from this side and from that before their faces; and their Lord leading them stood also between RHC  RL 
89:25them and the wolves.89:25 And as those wolves did not yet see the sheep, they went into the middle of the sea of water; and the wolves followed the sheep, and ran after them into the sea of water. RHC  RL 
89:26  89:26 And when they saw the Lord of the sheep they turned that they might flee from before his face; but this sea of water gathered itself together, suddenly took again its own character, and the water swelled and rose till it covered RHC  RL 
89:27those wolves.89:27 And I saw till all the wolves which had followed those sheep were destroyed, and sank down.  RHC  RL 
89:28  89:28 But the sheep escaped from that water, and went into the desert, where there was no water and no grass; and they began to open their eyes and to see; and I saw the Lord of the sheep  RHC  RL 
89:29pasturing them and giving them water and grass, and that [former] sheep going and leading them.89:29 And this RHC  RL 
89:30sheep ascended to the height of a high rock, and the Lord of the sheep sent it to them.89:30 And after that I saw the Lord of the sheep as he stood before them; and his appearance was  RHC  RL 
89:31terrible and powerful, and all those sheep saw him, and were afraid before his face.89:31 And they were all afraid, and trembled before him, and cried after that sheep which was with him to the other sheep which was among RHC  RL 
89:32them: "We are not able to exist before our Lord, or to look at him."89:32 And that sheep which led them returned, and ascended to the height of that rock; but the sheep began to be blinded as to their eyes, and erred RHC  RL 
89:33from the path which it had showed to them; but this sheep did not know it.89:33 And the Lord of the sheep was enraged over them greatly; and that sheep discovered it, and descended from the height of the rock, and came to the sheep, and found the greater part of them blinded as to their eyes, and erring  RHC  RL 
89:34from his path.89:34 And as they saw it they feared and trembled before its face, and desired to return to their RHC  RL 
89:35folds.89:35 And that sheep took other sheep with it, and came to those erring sheep; and then it began to kill them, and the sheep feared its countenance; and thus that sheep brought back those RHC  RL 
89:36erring sheep, and they returned to their folds.89:36 And I saw there in the vision till that sheep became a man, and built the Lord of the sheep a house, and placed all the sheep in that house.  RHC  RL 
89:37  89:37 And I saw till that sheep that had met the sheep which led the sheep reposed [in death]; and I saw till all the large sheep were destroyed, and small ones arose in their places; and they came to a pasture, and RHC  RL 
89:38approached a stream of water.89:38 And this sheep which led them, and which became a man, was separated RHC  RL 
89:39from them, and reposed [in death]; and all the sheep sought it, and cried over it exceedingly.89:39 And I saw till they became quiet from their crying over this sheep, and they crossed that stream of water; and there always arose other sheep that led them in the place of those which had departed, and led RHC  RL 
89:40them.89:40 And I saw the sheep until they came into a good place, and into a pleasant and glorious land; and I saw these sheep till they were satisfied; but the house stood among them in the beautiful land.  RHC  RL 
89:41  89:41 And sometimes their eyes were opened, and sometimes they were blinded, till another sheep arose, and led them, and conducted them all back, and their eyes were opened.  RHC  RL 
89:42  89:42 And the dogs and the foxes and the wild boars began to devour those sheep till another sheep arose, a buck, in their RHC  RL 
89:43midst, which led them.89:43 And this buck began to butt those dogs and those foxes and those wild RHC  RL 
89:44boars from both sides, till he had destroyed them all.89:44 And that sheep had its eyes opened, and saw this buck which was among the sheep departing from his honor, and beginning to butt those sheep, and to tramp on them, and to walk RHC  RL 
89:45unseemly.89:45 And the Lord of the sheep sent that sheep to another sheep, and exalted it to become a buck, and to lead the sheep in the place of that RHC  RL 
89:46sheep which had deserted his honor.89:46 And it went to it, and spoke to it alone, and elevated it to become a buck, and made it the prince and leader of the sheep; but during all that time those dogs RHC  RL 
89:47oppressed the sheep.89:47 And the first buck pursued the second buck, and the second buck arose, and fled before its face; and I saw till those dogs cast RHC  RL 
89:48down the first buck.89:48 And that second buck arose, RHC  RL 
89:49and led the smaller sheep, and this buck begat many sheep, and reposed [in death]; and a small sheep became the buck in its place, and was the prince and leader of those sheep.89:49 And those sheep grew and increased; and the dogs and the foxes and the wild boars were afraid, and fled before it; and that buck butted and killed all the wild beasts, and those wild beasts had no more power among the sheep, and never robbed them of anything.  RHC  RL 
89:50  89:50 And that house became great and broad, and a large tower was built on that house of the Lord of the sheep for those sheep; and the house was low, but the tower was high and broad; and the Lord of the sheep stood on that tower, and they placed a full table before him.  RHC  RL 
89:51  89:51 And I again saw those sheep that they again erred, and went many ways, and left their house; and the Lord of the sheep called some from among them, and sent them to the sheep, RHC  RL 
89:52but the sheep began to kill them.89:52 And one of them was saved, and was not killed, but escaped, and cried over the sheep; and they wanted to kill it, but the Lord of the sheep saved it out of the hands of RHC  RL 
89:53the sheep, and brought it up to me, and caused it to dwell there.89:53 And he sent many other sheep to those sheep to admonish them, and to lament over them.89:54 And after that I saw, as they left the house of the Lord of the sheep and his tower, they departed entirely, and their eyes were blinded; and I saw the Lord of the sheep that he caused much death among them in each one of their herds, til RHC  RL 
89:55these sheep even called for this death, and they betrayed his place.89:55 And he left them in the hand of the lions and tigers and wolves and jackals, and in the hand of foxes and all the wild RHC  RL 
89:56beasts, and these wild beasts began to tear those sheep to pieces.89:56 And I saw that he left that house of theirs and their tower and gave them all into the hand of lions that they should tear and devour them, RHC  RL 
89:57into the hand of all the wild beasts.89:57 And I began to cry aloud with all my power, and called upon the Lord of the sheep and showed him this in reference to the sheep, that they were being devoured  RHC  RL 
89:58by all the wild beasts.89:58 But he remained silent, seeing it, and rejoiced that they were devoured and swallowed and robbed, and left them in the hand of all the wild beasts as food.  RHC  RL 
89:59  89:59 And he called seventy shepherds and put away those sheep, in order that they should pasture them, and he spoke to the shepherds and to their companions: "Each single one of you shall now pasture the sheep,  RHC  RL 
89:60and everything I command you, do!89:60 And I deliver them over to you according to number, and will tell you which of them shall be destroyed; those kill!"89:61 And RHC  RL 
89:61he gave those sheep over to them. And to another he called and said to him: "Watch, and see everything that the shepherds do concerning these sheep; for they will destroy more of them than RHC  RL 
89:62I have commanded.89:62 And each superabundance and the destruction which the shepherds do to these write down, how many they destroy by my command, and how many they destroy by their own will, and write down separately each destruction by each shepherd.  RHC  RL 
89:63  89:63 And according to the number recite before me how many they have destroyed of their own account and how many were given them for destruction, that this may be a testimony for me against them, that I may know every deed of the shepherds to give them over, and may see what they do, whether they do my  RHC  RL 
89:64commands which I have commanded them or not.89:64 And they shall not know, and thou shalt not let them know nor admonish them, but write down all the destruction of  RHC  RL 
89:65the shepherds, each one in its time, and lay everything before me."89:65 And I saw till those shepherds pastured in their times and began to kill and to destroy more than was commanded them, and left  RHC  RL 
89:66those sheep in the hands of the lions.89:66 And the lions and the tigers devoured and swallowed the greater part of those sheep, and the wild boars devoured with them; and they burned that tower and demolished RHC  RL 
89:67that house.89:67 And I mourned a great deal over that tower because that house of the sheep was demolished; and after that I could no longer see those sheep whether they entered that house.  RHC  RL 
89:68  89:68 And the shepherds and their companions delivered over those sheep to all the wild beasts to devour them, and each one of them received in his time a certain number, and of each one the other wrote down RHC  RL 
89:69in a book how many he destroyed.89:69 And each one killed and destroyed RHC  RL 
89:70more than was ordered him; and I began to cry and to lament exceedingly concerning those sheep.89:70 And in the vision I saw that scribe as he wrote each one that was destroyed by those shepherds on each day and brought up and opened and showed this whole book to the Lord of the sheep, everything that they had done and every one that each single one had  RHC  RL 
89:71removed and every one that they had handed over for destruction,89:71 And the book was read before the Lord of the sheep, and he took the book in his hand, and read it and sealed it and laid it down.  RHC  RL 
89:72  89:72 And after that I saw that shepherds pastured twelve hours, and behold, three of those sheep turned around and came and entered and began to build everything that was demolished of the RHC  RL 
89:73house, but the wild boars attempted to hinder them, and they could not.89:73 And they again began to build, as before, and put up that tower, and it was called "the high tower"; and they again began to place a table before that tower, and all the bread on it was unclean and not pure.  RHC  RL 
89:74  89:74 And concerning all this the sheep were blinded as to their eyes, and did not see, and their shepherds likewise; and a great many were delivered to their shepherds for  RHC  RL 
89:75destruction, and they trod on the sheep with their feet and devoured them.89:75 And the Lord of the sheep remained quiet till all the sheep were scattered in the field and mixed themselves with them RHC  RL 
89:76and did not save them from the hands of the wild beasts.89:76 And he who wrote the book brought it to the houses of the Lord of the sheep, and showed it and read it and petitioned him on their account and asked him, while showing him all the deeds RHC  RL 
89:77of their shepherds and testifying before him against all the shepherds.89:77 And he took the book and laid it beside him, and departed.  RHC  RL

90:1  90:1 And I saw to the time when thirty-six shepherds thus pastured, and each one completed his time like the first; and others received them in their RHC  RL 
90:2hands to pasture them in their time, each shepherd in his own time.90:2 And after that I saw in the vision all the birds of heaven coming: the eagles and the vultures and the buzzards and the crows; but the eagles led all the birds; and they began to devour those sheep and to pick out their eyes and to RHC  RL 
90:3devour their flesh.90:3 And the sheep cried out because their flesh was being devoured by the birds. RHC  RL 
90:4And I cried and lamented in my sleep over that shepherd who was pasturing the sheep.90:4 And I saw until those sheep were devoured by the dogs and the eagles and the buzzards, and they did not leave on them meat or skin or muscles till the skeletons stood there alone, and the skeletons fell RHC  RL

90:9and devoured them.90:9 And I saw till horns came to those lambs and the crows threw down those horns; and I saw till ONE great horn came forth, ONE of those sheep, and their eyes RHC  RL 
90:10were opened.90:10 And it looked at them, and their eyes were opened, and it cried to the sheep, and the RHC  RL 
90:11bucks saw it, and all ran to it.90:11 And with all that those eagles and vultures and crows and buzzards to that time were tearing those sheep to pieces, and flew down on them and devoured them; but the sheep remained quiet, and the bucks lamented and cried out.90:12 And those crows fought and battled with it and sought to remove that horn, but had no power over it. RHC  RL 
90:12  RHC  RL 
90:13  90:13 And I saw them till the shepherds and the eagles and those vultures and buzzards came, and they cried to those crows that they should break that horn of the buck; and they fought and battled with it, and it fought with them and cried that its help might come to it.  RHC  RL 
90:14  90:14 And I saw till that man who had written down the names of the shepherds and brought them up to the Lord of the sheep came, and he helped that buck and showed it everything, that its help had come down.  RHC  RL 
90:15  90:15 And I saw till that Lord of the sheep came to them in anger, and all who saw him fled, and all fell into his shadow before his face.  RHC  RL 
90:19  90:16 All the eagles and vultures and crows and buzzards assembled and brought with them all the sheep of the desert, and they all came together and assisted one another in order to break that horn of the buck.90:17 And I saw that man who had written the book by the voice of God till he opened that book of destruction which those last twelve shepherds had practiced, and showed that they had destroyed more that those before them, before the Lord of the sheep.90:18 And I saw till the Lord of the sheep came to them and took the rod of anger in his hand, and struck the earth so that the earth was rent apart, and all the beasts and the birds of heaven fell away from those sheep, and sank down into the earth, and it was covered over them.90:19 And I saw till a great sword was given to the sheep, and the sheep came to those wild beasts to kill them, and all the beasts and the birds of heaven fled from their face. RHC  RL 
90:20  90:20 And I saw till a throne was built on the earth in the pleasant land, and the Lord of the sheep sat upon it, and he took all the sealed books and opened those books before the Lord of the sheep.  RHC  RL 
90:21  90:21 And the Lord called to those first six white ones, and commanded that they should bring to him, from the first star on, which had come forth, all the stars whose sexual members  RHC  RL 
90:22had been similar to the sexual members of horses, and also the first star that had first fallen; and they brought all before him.90:22 And he said to that man who wrote before him, who was one of the six white ones, and said to him: "Take those seventy shepherds to whom I have delivered the sheep, and taking them, they of their own account killed more  RHC  RL 
90:23than I had commanded them."90:23 And behold I saw them all bound, and all stood before him.  RHC  RL 
90:24  90:24 And the judgment was first over the stars, and they were judged and were found to be sinners, and went to the place of judgment and were thrown into an abyss filled with fire and burning and filled with  RHC  RL 
90:25pillars of fire.90:25 And those seventy shepherds were judged and were found to be sinners, and THEY were thrown  RHC  RL 
90:26into this abyss of fire.90:26 And I saw at that time that an abyss like it was opened in the middle of the earth, which was full of fire, and they brought those blinded sheep, and they all were judged and were found to be sinners, and were  RHC  RL 
90:27thrown into the abyss of fire and burned; and this abyss was to the right of that house.90:27 And I saw those sheep burning, and their bones burned.  RHC  RL 
90:28  90:28 And I stood looking till he enveloped that old house, and they took out all the pillars, and all the planks and the ornaments of that house were wrapped in with it, and they brought it RHC  RL 
90:29out and put it in one place, on the right [i.e. south] of the earth.90:29 And I saw the Lord of the sheep till he produced a new house, larger and higher than that first, and put it in the place of the first, which had been enveloped, and all its pillars were new, and the ornaments new and larger than of the first old one, which he had removed, and all the sheep were in its middle.  RHC  RL 
90:30  90:30 And I saw all the sheep that had been left and all the animals on the earth and all the birds of the heavens, falling down and worshiping those sheep and petitioning and obeying RHC  RL 
90:31them in every word.90:31 And after that those three who were dressed in white, who had led me up before, took me by the hand, and the hand of that buck taking hold of me, they  RHC  RL 
90:32raised me, and put me down in the midst of those sheep before the judgment took place.90:32 But those  RHC  RL 
90:33sheep were all white, and their wool large and clean.90:33 And all that were destroyed and scattered, and all the wild beasts and all the birds of heaven were collected in that house, and the Lord of the sheep rejoiced greatly, for they were all good and had returned to RHC  RL 
90:34his house.90:34 And I saw till they laid down that sword which had been given to the sheep, and returned it to his house; and it was sealed before the face of the Lord, and all the sheep RHC  RL 
90:35were closed up in that house, but it could not contain them.90:35 And the eyes of all of them were opened, and they  RHC  RL 
90:36saw the good, and there was not ONE among them that did not see.90:36 And I saw that that house was large and broad and exceedingly full.  RHC  RL 
90:37  90:37 And I saw that a white bullock was born, and his horns were large, and all the wild beasts and all the  RHC  RL 
90:38birds of heaven feared him and petitioned him at all times.90:38 And I saw till all their generations were changed, and they all became white bullocks, and the first one of them [was the word, and that word] was a great animal, and had on its head large and black horns; and the Lord of the sheep  RHC  RL 
90:39rejoiced over them and over all the bullocks.90:39 And I reposed in their midst, and I awoke and saw everything.  RHC  RL 
90:40  90:40 And this is the vision that I saw as I was asleep; and I awoke and blessed the Lord of justice and  RHC  RL 
90:41gave him glory.90:41 And then I cried greatly, and my tears did not stand still till I was not able to endure it; when I looked they flowed on account of that which I saw, because everything will come and RHC  RL 
90:42be fulfilled; and all the deeds of men in their order appeared to me.90:42 And in that night I remembered my first dream, and on its account I cried and trembled, because I had seen that vision.  RHC  RL

91:12  91:12 And after that there will be another week, the eighth, that of justice, and the sword will be given to it, that it may pass judgment and justice on those who practice injustice, and the sinners will be delivered into the hands of the just.  RHC  RL 
91:13  91:13 And in the end of it they will acquire houses through their justice, and they will build a house to the Great King as an honor to eternity.  RHC  RL

100:1  100:1 And in those days the fathers will be slain in one place with their sons, and brothers with the others will fall in death, till it flows like a stream from their blood.  RHC  RL 
100:2  100:2 For a man will not in mercy draw his hand from his sons, and from his sons’ sons, to kill them; and the sinner will not draw his hand from his honored brother; from the dawn to the setting sun they will kill each other.  RHC  RL 
100:3  100:3 And a horse will walk up to his breast in the blood of the sinners, and a wagon will sink in to its height.  RHC  RL 
100:4  100:4 And it those days the angels will come into the secret places, and will collect in one place all those who aided sin; and the Most High will arise on that day to pass a great judgment over all the sinners.  RHC  RL 
100:5  100:5 But over all the just and holy he will place holy angels as watchmen to watch them like the apple of an eye, till an end has been made to evil and to all sin; and even if the holy sleep a long sleep there is nothing to fear.  RHC  RL 
100:6  100:6 And the wise among men will see the truth, and the children of the earth will understand all the words of this book, and know that their riches will not be able to save them in the overthrow of their sins.  RHC  RL 
100:7  100:7 Woe to you sinners, if ye trouble the just, on the day of great pain, and burn them with fire; ye will be repaid according to your work.  RHC  RL 
100:8  100:8 Woe to the hardened of heart, who watch to contrive wickedness: fear will be about to come over you, and there will be none to save you.  RHC  RL 
100:9  100:9 Woe to you sinners, for on account of the words of your mouth, and on account of the deeds of your hands, which ye have done, ye who act impiously will burn in a pool of flaming fire.  RHC  RL 
100:10  100:10 And now know that the angels will seek out your deeds in heaven from the sun and the moon and the stars in reference to your sins, because ye pass  RHC  RL 
100:11judgment on the earth on the just.100:11 And he will call to testify over you each cloud and fog and dew and rain, for they all will be kept back from you that they do not descend upon you; and shall they  RHC  RL 
100:12not think of your sins?100:12 And now give presents to the rain that it may not be kept back from descending upon you, or the dew when it has received gold or silver from you.100:13 When hoar-frost and snow and their coldness descend upon you, and all the winds of the snow and all their plagues, in those days ye will not be able to stand before them.  RHC  RL

101:1  101:1 Notice the heavens, all ye children of heaven, and all the doings of the Most High, and have fear of him, RHC  RL 
101:2and do no evil before him.101:2 When he locks the windows of heaven, and prevents the rain and  RHC  RL 
101:3the dew from descending upon the earth on your account, what will ye do then?101:3 And when he sends his anger over you and over all your deeds, ye cannot petition him, because ye have spoken concerning  RHC  RL 
101:4his justice proudly and boldly, and ye shall have no peace.101:4 And do ye not see the kings of the ships, how their ships are chased about by waves, and tremble before the winds,  RHC  RL 
101:5and are troubled?101:5 And therefore they fear, because all their good treasures go into the sea with them, and they are troubled in their hearts that the sea might swallow them and they  RHC  RL 
101:6perish in it.101:6 Is not all the sea and all its waters and all its movements a work of the Most  RHC  RL 
101:7High, and has he not sealed all its doings, and bound it all in the sand?101:7 It dries up at his threats, and is afraid, and all its fish die, and all that is in it; and ye sinners who are  RHC  RL 
101:8on the earth do not fear him.101:8 Has he not made heaven and earth, and all that is in them? And who has given understanding and wisdom to all who move on the earth, and to those on the sea?  RHC  RL 
101:9  101:9 Do not the kings of the ships fear the sea? but the sinners do not fear the Most High.  RHC  RL

102:1  102:1 And in those days when he brings a painful fire upon you, whither will ye flee, and where will ye save yourselves? and when he brings his word upon you, will ye then not be aghast and fear?  RHC  RL 
102:2  102:2 And all the luminaries will tremble in great fear, and all the earth will be aghast, and will tremble and quake.  RHC  RL 
102:3  102:3 And all the angels will fulfil their commands, and will desire to hide themselves from before him, great in glory, and the children of the earth will tremble and shake; and ye, sinners, are cursed to eternity, and will have no peace.  RHC  RL 
102:4  102:4 Fear not, ye souls of the just, and hope for the day of your death in justice.  RHC  RL 
102:5  102:5 And be not sorrowful that your souls descend into Sheol, in great trouble and lamentation and sorrow, and in grief, and that your bodies have not found it in your life as your goodness deserved, but rather on a day on which ye were like the sinners, and on the day of the curse and the punishment.  RHC  RL 
102:6  102:6 And when ye die the sinners speak over you: "As we die the just die, and what benefit have they in their deeds?  RHC  RL 
102:7  102:7 Behold, as we, they have died in anxiety and in darkness, and what advantage have they over us? from now on we are equal.  RHC  RL 
102:8  102:8 And what will they receive, and what will they see to eternity? For behold they too have died, and from now on to eternity they do not see the light."  RHC  RL 
102:9  102:9 I tell you sinners: it is sufficient for you to eat and drink and to make a man naked, and  RHC  RL 
102:10to rob and to sin, and to acquire wealth, and to see good days.102:10 Have ye seen the just, how their end was peace, because no  RHC  RL 
102:11oppression was found in them to the day of their death?102:11 "And they were destroyed, and became as if they had not been, and the souls descended in Sheol in trouble."  RHC  RL

103:1  103:1 And now I swear to you the just, by his great glory and his honor, and by his  RHC  RL 
103:2glorious kingdom and by his greatness I swear to you:103:2 I know this mystery, and have read it in the tablets of heaven, and have seen the book of the holy ones, and have found written in it and inscribed on their account,  RHC  RL 
103:3  103:3 that all goodness and joy and honor are prepared for them, and are written down for the spirits of those who have died in justice, and that much good is given to you as a reward for your labor, and that your portion is better than the portion of the living.  RHC  RL 
103:4  103:4 And your souls will live, ye who have died in justice, and your spirits will rejoice and be glad, and their remembrance will be before the face of the Great One to all the generations of eternity. And now do not fear their shame.  RHC  RL 
103:5  103:5 Woe to you, sinners, if ye die in your sins, and those who are like you say concerning you: "Blessed are they, the sinners, they have seen all their days;  RHC  RL 
103:6  103:6 and now they have died in good fortune and in wealth, and have not seen trouble or murder in their life; in glory they have died, and judgment has not been passed over them in their life."  RHC  RL 
103:7  103:7 Do ye know that their souls will be caused to descend into Sheol, and it will be ill with them, and their trouble great?  RHC  RL 
103:8  103:8 And in darkness and in toils and in a burning flame their spirits will burn at the great judgment; and a great judgment will be for all generations to eternity. Woe to you, for ye will have no peace!  RHC  RL 
103:9  103:9 Say not to the just and good who are in life: "In the days of our need we have endured labor, and have seen all need, and have met much evil, and have been injured and diminished, and our spirit has become small.  RHC  RL 
103:10  103:10 We have been destroyed, and there was none to help us; with word and deed we were incapable, and attained to nothing whatever; we were tortured and destroyed, and did not hope to see life, day by day.  RHC  RL 
103:11  103:11 We hoped to be the head, and were the tail; we labored exceedingly, and did not gain by our labor; we became food for sinners, and the unjust laid their yoke heavily upon us.  RHC  RL 
103:12  103:12 Those who hated and those who beat us became our rulers; and we bent our neck to our haters, and they did not pity us.  RHC  RL 
103:13  103:13 And we desired to go from them in order to flee and to rest, but we did not find whither to flee and to save ourselves from them.  RHC  RL 
103:14  103:14 We complained to the rulers in our trouble and in our pain over those who devoured us; but they did not attend to our cry, and did not wish to hear our voice.  RHC  RL 
103:15  103:15 And they helped those who robbed and devoured us, and those who diminished us, and they made secret their oppression, so that they did not remove their yoke from us, but devoured us and scattered us and murdered us; and they kept secret our murder, and did not think of it that they had lifted up their hands against us."  RHC  RL

104:1  104:1 I swear to you, just ones, that in heaven the angels will have a remembrance concerning you for good before the glory of the Great RHC  RL 
104:2One. Your names will be written before the glory of the Great One.104:2 Hope, for at first ye were disgraced in evil and need, but now ye will shine like the luminaries of heaven, RHC  RL 
104:3and will be seen, and the portals of heaven will be opened to you.104:3 And continue your cry for a judgment; it will appear to you, for all your trouble will be avenged on the  RHC  RL 
104:4rulers, and on all those who help those who oppressed you.104:4 Hope, and do not cease your hope, for ye will have great joy, like the angels in heaven.104:5 Since such will be yours, ye will not hide on the day of the great judgment, and ye will not be found as sinners, and the everlasting RHC  RL 
104:6judgment will be far from you for all the generations of the world.104:6 And now, fear not, ye just, when ye see the sinners strengthening and rejoicing in their desires, and be not associates with them, RHC  RL 
104:7but keep far from their oppression, for ye shall be companions of the hosts of heaven.104:7 Ye sinners, although ye say: "Ye cannot search it out, and all our sins are not written down; still  RHC  RL 
104:8they will continually write down your sins every day.104:8 And now I show it to you, that light and darkness, RHC  RL 
104:9day and night, see all your sins.104:9 Be not impious in your hearts, and do not lie, and do not change the words of rectitude, and do not call a lie the words of the Holy and Great One, and do not glorify your RHC  RL 
104:10idols; for all your untruths and all your impiety will not be to you for a justification, but for a great sin.104:10 And now, I know this mystery that the words of rectitude will be changed, and many sinners will rebel, and will speak wicked words, and will lie and make great works, and write books concerning RHC  RL 
104:11their words.104:11 But when they write all my words in rectitude in their languages, and do not change or abridge anything of my words, but write all in rectitude, all that I have first testified RHC  RL 
104:12on their account,104:12 then I know another mystery, that books will be given to just and to the RHC  RL 
104:13wise for joy and for rectitude and for much wisdom.104:13 And the books will be given to them, and they will believe in them and will rejoice in them; and then all the just, who have learned all the paths of rectitude out of them, will be rewarded. RHC  RL

105:1  105:1 And in those days, says the Lord, "they will call and testify over the sons of the earth concerning their wisdom: show it to them, for ye are their leaders, and the rewards over all the earth.  RHC  RL 
105:2  105:2 For I and my son will join with them to eternity in the paths of rectitude in their lives. And peace will be to you; rejoice, ye children of rectitude, in truth!"  RHC  RL

106:1  106:1 And after some days, my son Methuselah took a wife for his son Lamech, and she became  RHC  RL 
106:2pregnant by him, and gave birth to a son.106:2 His body was white as snow and red as the bloom of a rose, and the hair of his head was white as wool, and his eyes beautiful; and when he opened his eyes, they illuminated the whole house like the sun, and the whole house  RHC  RL 
106:3became exceedingly light.106:3 And as he was taken from the hand of the midwife, he opened his mouth, and conversed with the Lord of justice.  RHC  RL 
106:4  106:4 And his father Lamech was afraid of him, and  RHC  RL 
106:5fled, and came to his father Methuselah.106:5 And he said to him: "I have begotten a singular son, unlike a man, but similar to the children of the angels of heaven, and his creation is different, and not like ours, and his eyes are like the feet [i.e. rays] of the sun, his  RHC  RL 
106:6face glorious.106:6 And it seems to me he is not from me, but from the angels; and I fear that wonderful things will happen in his days  RHC  RL 
106:7over the earth.106:7 And now, my father, I am here petitioning and asking of thee that thou shouldst go to Enoch, our father, and hear of him the truth, for he has his dwelling-place  RHC  RL 
106:8with the angels."106:8 And when Methuselah had heard the words of his son, he came to me, at the ends of the earth, for he had heard that I was there, and cried aloud, and I heard his voice and came to him. And I said to him: "Behold, here I am, my son, because  RHC  RL 
106:9thou hast come to me."106:9 And he answered and said to me: "I have come to thee concerning a great thing, and concerning a disturbing vision RHC  RL 
106:10 it is that I have approached.106:10 And now, my father, hear me, for there has been born to my son Lamech a son, whose similarity and kind is not like the kind of men; his color is whiter than snow, and redder than the bloom of a rose, and the hair of his head is whiter than white wool, and his eyes like the feet [i.e. rays] of the sun; and he opened his eyes, and  RHC  RL 
106:11they illuminated the whole house.106:11 And when he was taken from the hands of the midwife, he opened RHC  RL 
106:12his mouth, and blessed the Lord of heaven.106:12 And his father Lamech was afraid, and fled to me, and did not believe that he was from him, but that his similarity was from the angels of heaven; and behold I have come to thee that thou shouldst teach me justice [i.e. the truth]."106:13 And I, Enoch, answered, and said to him: "The Lord will make new things on the earth, and this I know, and have seen in a vision, and I announce it to thee that in the generations of my father Jared some from the heights of heaven departed from the word of the Lord.106:14 And behold, they committed sin, and departed from the law, and united themselves with women, and committed sin with them, and married some of them, and begat children from them.106:17 [They beget on earth giants, not according to the spirit, but according to the flesh, and there will be great punishment on the earth, and the earth will be washed of all of its uncleanness.]106:15 And great destruction will be over all the earth, and there will be the water of a deluge, and  RHC  RL 
106:16a great destruction will be for one year.106:16 This son who is born to thee will be left on the earth, and his three children will be saved with him; when all men who are on the earth shall die, he and his children will be saved.106:18 And now announce to thy son Lamech that he who was born to him is in truth his son, and call his name Noah, for he will be a remnant of you; and he and his children will be saved from the destruction which will come over the earth on account of all the sins and all the injustice which will be completed in his days over the earth.106:19 And after that, injustice will exceed that which was first committed on the earth; for I know the mysteries of the holy ones, for he, the Lord, has showed me, and has instructed me, and I have read in the tablets of heaven. RHC  RL

107:1  107:1 And I saw written upon them that generation upon generation will transgress till a generation of justice arises, and transgression will be destroyed, and sin will disappear from the earth, and all RHC  RL 
107:2good will come over it.107:2 And now, my son, go and announce to thy son Lamech, that this  RHC  RL 
107:3son who is born is really his, and that this is not a falsehood."107:3 And when Methuselah had heard the words of his father Enoch—for he had showed him everything that was secret—he returned, after his having seen him, and called the name of that son Noah, for he will make glad the earth for all destruction.  RHC  RL

108:1  108:1 Another book that Enoch wrote for his son Methuselah, and for those who come after him, RHC  RL 
108:2and keep the law in the last days.108:2 Ye who kept it, and now wait in those days till those who did evil are completed, and the power of the transgressors has been completed,108:3 wait till sin disappears, for their names will be erased from the books of the holy ones, and their seed will be destroyed to eternity, and their spirits will be killed, and they will cry and lament in a void, empty place, and burn in a fire where there is no end.108:4 And there I saw something like a cloud which could not be seen, for from its depths I could not look over it; and I saw a flame of fire burning brightly, and there circled things like shining RHC  RL 
108:5mountains, and they shook to and fro.108:5 And I asked one of the holy angels who were with me, and said to him; "What is this shining thing? for it is not a heaven, but only the flame of a burning RHC  RL 
108:6fire, and the voice of shouting and crying and lamenting and of great pain."108:6 And he said to me: "This place which thou seest—here are brought the souls of the sinners and of the revilers and of those who do evil and change everything that God speaks through the mouth RHC  RL 
108:7of the prophets concerning things to take place.108:7 For some of these have been written down, and noted above in heaven, that the angels may read and know what will happen to the sinners and to the spirits of the humble who have chastised their bodies, and for that receive their reward RHC  RL 
108:8from God, and of those who are reviled by wicked men;108:8 who loved God, and did not love gold or silver or all the riches of the world, but gave over their bodies to torture;108:9 and who, since they existed, did not long for terrestrial food, but considered themselves a breath that passes away, and lived accordingly, and were often tried by God, and their spirits were RHC  RL 
108:10found in cleanness to praise his name.108:10 All the blessings they received I have marked down in the books; and he has destined for them their wages, because they have been shown as those who loved the everlasting heaven more than their life, and while they were trodden down by wicked men, and heard abuse and reviling from them,  RHC  RL 
108:11praised me."108:11 And now I will call to the spirits of the good, from the generation of light, and change those who were born in darkness, who have not been rewarded in their bodies  RHC  RL 
108:12with honor, as was meet for their fidelity.108:12 And I will lead out in a shining light those who  RHC  RL 
108:13love my holy name, and will set each one on the throne of honor, of his honor.108:13 And they will glitter in times without number, for justice is the judgment of God, for he will give fidelity RHC  RL 
108:14to the faithful in the dwellings of the paths of rectitude.108:14 And they will see how those who were RHC  RL 
108:15born in darkness will be cast into darkness, while the just will glitter.108:15 And the sinners will cry, and see them as they shine; and they will go there where days and times are written for them. RHC  RL
