The Book of Enoch
Translated by Richard Lawrence (1883)

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 1
1:1  1:1The word of the blessing of Enoch, how he blessed the elect and the righteous, who were to  GHS  RHC 
1:2  exist in the time of trouble; rejecting all the wicked and ungodly. Enoch, a righteous man, who was with God, answered and spoke, while his eyes were open, and while he saw a holy vision in the heavens. This the angels showed me. 1:2From them I heard all things, and understood what I saw; that which will not take place in this generation, but in a generation which is to succeed GHS  RHC 
1:3  at a distant period, on account of the elect. 1:3Upon their account I spoke and conversed with him, who will go forth from his habitation, the Holy and Mighty One, GHS  RHC 
1:4  the God of the world: 1:4Who will hereafter tread upon Mount Sinai; appear with his hosts; and be manifested in the strength of his power from heaven.  GHS  RHC 
1:5  All shall be afraid, and the Watchers be terrified. 1:5Great fear and trembling shall seize them, even to the ends of the earth. GHS  RHC 
1:6  1:6The lofty mountains shall be troubled, and the exalted hills depressed, melting like a honeycomb in the flame.  GHS  RHC 
1:7  The earth shall be immerged, and all things which are in it perish; while judgment shall come upon all,  GHS  RHC 
1:8  even upon all the righteous: 1:7But to them shall he give peace: he shall preserve the elect, and towards them exercise clemency. 1:8Then shall all belong to God; be happy and blessed; and the splendour of the Godhead shall illuminate them.  GHS  RHC 
1:9  2:1Behold, he comes with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon them, and destroy the wicked, and reprove all the carnal for everything which the sinful and ungodly have done, and committed against him. GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 2        
2:1  All who are in the heavens know what is transacted there. 3:2They know that the heavenly luminaries change not their paths; that each rises and sets regularly, every one at its proper period,  GHS  RHC 
2:2  without transgressing the commands, which they have received. The behold the earth, and understand what is there transacted, from the beginning to the end of it.  GHS  RHC 
2:3  3:3They see that every work of God is invariable in the period of its appearance. They behold summer and winter: perceiving that the whole earth is full of water; and that the cloud, the dew, and the rain refresh it.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 3        
3:1  4:1They consider and behold every tree, how it appears to wither, and every leaf to fall off, except of fourteen trees, which are not deciduous; which wait from the old, to the appearance of the new leaf, for two or three winters.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 4        
4:1  5:1Again they consider the days of summer, that the sun is upon it at its very beginning; while you seek for a covered and shady spot on account of the burning sun; while the earth is scorched up with fervid heat, and you become incapable of walking either upon the ground or upon the rocks in consequence of that heat.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 5        
5:1  6:1They consider how the trees, when they put forth their green leaves, become covered, and produce fruit; understanding everything, and knowing that He who lives for ever does all these things for you:  GHS  RHC 
5:2  6:2That the works at the beginning of every existing year, that all his works, are subservient to him, and invariable; yet as God has appointed, so are all things brought to pass.  GHS  RHC 
5:3  6:3They see, too, how the seas and the rivers together complete their respective operations:  GHS  RHC 
5:4  6:4But you endure not patiently, nor fulfill the commandments of the Lord; but you transgress and calumniate his greatness; and malignant are the words in your polluted mouths against his Majesty. 6:5You withered in heart, no peace shall be to you!  GHS  RHC 
5:5  6:6Therefore your days shall you curse, and the years of your lives shall perish; perpetual execration shall be multiplied, and you shall not obtain mercy.  GHS  RHC 
5:6  6:7In those days shall you resign your peace with the eternal maledictions of all the righteous, and sinners shall perpetually execrate you; 6:8Shall execrate you with the ungodly. 6:10But you, you unholy, shall be accursed.  GHS  RHC 
5:7  6:9The elect shall possess light, joy, and peace; and they shall inherit the earth.  GHS  RHC 
5:8  6:11Then shall wisdom be given to the elect, all of whom shall live, and not again transgress by impiety or pride; but shall humble themselves, possessing prudence,  GHS  RHC 
5:9  and shall not repeat transgression. 6:12They shall not be condemned the whole period of their lives, not die in torment and indignation; but the sum of their days shall be completed, and they shall grow old in peace; while the years of their happiness shall be multiplied with joy, and with peace, for ever, the whole duration of their existence.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 6        
6:1  7:1It happened after the sons of men had multiplied in those days, that daughters were born to  GHS  RHC 
6:2  them, elegant and beautiful. 7:2And when the angels, the sons of heaven, beheld them, they became enamoured of them, saying to each other, Come, let us select for ourselves wives from the progeny of men,  GHS  RHC 
6:3  and let us beget children. 7:3Then their leader Samyaza said to them; I fear that you may perhaps be  GHS  RHC 
6:4  indisposed to the performance of this enterprise; 7:4And that I alone shall suffer for so grievous a crime. 7:5But they answered him and said; We all swear; 7:6And bind ourselves by mutual execrations, GHS  RHC 
6:5  that we will not change our intention, but execute our projected undertaking. 7:7Then they swore all together, and all bound themselves  GHS  RHC 
6:6  by mutual execrations. Their whole number was two hundred, who descended upon Ardis, which is the top of mount Armon. 7:8That mountain therefore was called Armon, because they had sworn upon it,  GHS  RHC 
6:7  and bound themselves by mutual execrations. 7:9These are the names of their chiefs: Samyaza, who was their leader, Urakabarameel, Akibeel, Tamiel, Ramuel, Danel, Azkeel, Saraknyal,  GHS  RHC 
6:8  Asael, Armers, Batraal, Anane, Zavebe, Samsaveel, Ertael, Turel, Yomyael, Arazyal. These were the prefects of the two hundred angels,  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 7        
7:1  and the remainder were all with them. 7:10Then they took wives, each choosing for himself; whom they began to approach, and with whom they cohabited; teaching them sorcery,  GHS  RHC 
7:2  incantations, and the dividing of roots and trees. 7:11And the  GHS  RHC 
7:3  women conceiving brought forth giants, 7:12Whose stature was each three hundred cubits. These devoured  GHS  RHC 
7:4  all which the labor of men produced; until it became impossible to feed them; 7:13When they turned themselves against  GHS  RHC 
7:5  men, in order to devour them; 7:14And began to injure birds, beasts, reptiles, and  GHS  RHC 
7:6  fishes, to eat their flesh one after another, and to drink their blood. 7:15Then the earth reproved the unrighteous.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 8        
8:1  8:1Moreover Azazyel taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates, the fabrication of mirrors, and the workmanship of bracelets and ornaments, the use of paint, the beautifying of the eyebrows, the use of stones of every valuable and select kind, and all  GHS  RHC 
8:2  sorts of dyes, so that the world became altered. 8:2Impiety increased; fornication multiplied; and they  GHS  RHC 
8:3  transgressed and corrupted all their ways. 8:3Amazarak taught all the sorcerers, and dividers of roots: 8:4Armers taught the solution of sorcery; 8:5Barkayal taught the observers of the stars, 8:6Akibeel taught signs; 8:7Tamiel taught astronomy; 8:8And Asaradel taught the motion of the moon, 8:9And men, being destroyed, cried out; and their voice reached to heaven.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 9        
9:1  9:1Then Michael and Gabriel, Raphael, Suryal, and Uriel, looked down from heaven, and saw the quantity of blood which was GHS  RHC 
9:2  shed on earth, and all the iniquity which was done upon it, and said one to another, It is the voice of their cries; 9:2The earth deprived of her children has cried even to the gate of heaven.  GHS  RHC 
9:3  9:3And now to you, O you holy one of heaven, the souls of men complain, saying, Obtain Justice for us GHS  RHC 
9:4  with the Most High. Then they said to their Lord, the King, You are Lord of lords, God of gods, King of kings. The throne of your glory is for ever and  GHS  RHC 
9:5  ever, and for ever and ever is your name sanctified and glorified. You are blessed and glorified. 9:4You have made all things; you possess power over all things; and all things are open and manifest before you. You behold all things,  GHS  RHC 
9:6  and nothing can be concealed from you. 9:5You have seen what Azazyel has done, how he has taught every species of iniquity upon earth, and has disclosed to the world all the secret things which are done in the heavens.  GHS  RHC 
9:7  9:6Samyaza also has taught sorcery, to whom you have given authority over those who are associated with him. They have gone together to the daughters of men; have lain with  GHS  RHC 
9:9  them; have become polluted; 9:7And have discovered crimes to them. 9:8The women likewise have  GHS  RHC 
9:10  brought forth giants. 9:9Thus has the whole earth been filled with blood and with iniquity. 9:10And now behold the souls of those who are dead, cry out. 9:11And complain even to the gate of heaven. 9:12Their groaning ascends; nor can they escape from the unrighteousness which is  GHS  RHC 
9:11  committed on earth. You know all things, before they exist. 9:13You know these things, and what has been done by them; yet you do not speak to us. 9:14What on account of these things ought we to do to them?  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 10        
10:1  10:1Then the Most High, the Great and Holy One spoke, 10:2And sent Arsayalalyur to the son of Lamech,  GHS  RHC 
10:2  10:3Saying, Say to him in my name, Conceal yourself. 10:4Then explain to him the consummation which is about to take place; for all the earth shall perish; the waters of a deluge shall come  GHS  RHC 
10:3  over the whole earth, and all things which are in it shall be destroyed. 10:5And now teach him how he may escape, GHS  RHC 
10:4  and how his seed may remain in all the earth. 10:6Again the Lord said to Raphael, Bind Azazyel hand and foot; cast him into darkness; and opening  GHS  RHC 
10:5  the desert which is in Dudael, cast him in there. 10:7Throw upon him hurled and pointed stones, covering him with darkness; 10:8There shall he remain for ever; cover his face, that he may GHS  RHC 
10:6  not see the light. 10:9And in the great day of judgment let him be cast into the fire. 10:10Restore the earth, which the angels have corrupted; and announce life to it, that I may revive it. 10:11All the sons of men shall not perish in consequence of every secret, by which the  GHS  RHC 
10:8  Watchers have destroyed, and which they have taught, their offspring. 10:12All the earth has been corrupted  GHS  RHC 
10:9  by the effects of the teaching of Azazyel. To him therefore ascribe the whole crime. 10:13To Gabriel also the Lord said, Go to the biters, to the reprobates, to the children of fornication; and destroy the children of fornication, the offspring of the Watchers, from among men; bring them forth, and excite them one against another. Let them perish by mutual  GHS  RHC 
10:10  slaughter; for length of days shall not be theirs. 10:14They shall all entreat you, but their fathers shall not obtain their wishes respecting them; for they shall hope for eternal life, and  GHS  RHC 
10:11  that they may live, each of them, five hundred years. 10:15To Michael likewise the Lord said, Go and announce his crime to Samyaza, and to the others who are with him, who have been associated with women, that they might be polluted  GHS  RHC 
10:12  with all their impurity. And when all their sons shall be slain, when they shall see the perdition of their beloved, bind them for seventy generations underneath the earth, even to the day of judgment, and of consummation, until the judgment, the effect of which will  GHS  RHC 
10:13  last for ever, be completed. 10:16Then shall they be taken away into the lowest depths of the fire in torments; and  GHS  RHC 
10:14  in confinement shall they be shut up for ever. 10:17Immediately after this shall he, together with them, burn and perish; they shall be bound until the consummation of many  GHS  RHC 
10:15  generations. 10:18Destroy all the souls addicted to dalliance, and the offspring of the Watchers, for  GHS  RHC 
10:16  they have tyrannized over mankind. 10:19Let every oppressor perish from the face of the earth; 10:20Let every evil work be destroyed; 10:21The plant of righteousness and of rectitude appear, and its produce become a blessing. 10:22Righteousness and rectitude shall be for ever planted with delight.  GHS  RHC 
10:17  10:23And then shall all the saints give thanks, and live until they have begotten a thousand children, while the whole period of their youth, and their sabbaths shall be completed in peace. GHS  RHC 
10:18  In those days all the earth shall be cultivated in righteousness; it shall be wholly planted with trees, and  GHS  RHC 
10:19  filled with benediction; every tree of delight shall be planted in it. 10:24In it shall vines be planted; and the vine which shall be planted in it shall yield fruit to satiety; every seed, which shall be sown in it, shall produce for one measure a thousand; and one measure of olives shall produce  GHS  RHC 
10:20  ten presses of oil. 10:25Purify the earth from all oppression, from all injustice, from all crime, from all impiety, and from all the pollution which is committed upon it.  GHS  RHC 
10:21  Exterminate them from the earth. 10:26Then shall all the children of men be righteous, and all nations  GHS  RHC 
10:22  shall pay me divine honours, and bless me; and all shall adore me. 10:27The earth shall be cleansed from all corruption, from every crime, from all punishment, and from all suffering; neither will I again send a deluge upon it from generation to generation for ever.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 11        
11:1  10:28In those days I will open the treasures of blessing which are in heaven, that I may cause  GHS  RHC 
11:2  them to descend upon earth, and upon all the works and labour of man. 10:29Peace and equity shall associate with the sons of men all the days of the world, in every generation of it.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 12        
12:1  12:1Before all these things Enoch was concealed; nor did any one of the sons of men know where he was  GHS  RHC 
12:2  concealed, where he had been, and what had happened. 12:2He was wholly engaged with the holy ones, and with the Watchers in his days.  GHS  RHC 
12:3  12:3I, Enoch, was blessing the great Lord and King of peace. 12:4And behold the Watchers  GHS  RHC 
12:4  called me Enoch the scribe. 12:5Then the Lord said to me: Enoch, scribe of righteousness, go tell the Watchers of heaven, who have deserted the lofty sky, and their holy everlasting station, who have been polluted with women. 12:6And have done as the sons of men do, by taking to themselves  GHS  RHC 
12:5  wives, and who have been greatly corrupted on the earth; 12:7That on the earth they shall never obtain peace and remission  GHS  RHC 
12:6  of sin. For they shall not rejoice in their offspring; they shall behold the slaughter of their beloved; shall lament for the destruction of their sons; and shall petition for ever; but shall not obtain mercy and peace.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 13        
13:1  13:1Then Enoch, passing on, said to Azazyel: You shalt not obtain peace. A great sentence is gone forth  GHS  RHC 
13:2  against you. He shall bind you; 13:2Neither shall relief, mercy, and supplication be yours, on account of the oppression which you have taught; 13:3And on account of every act of blasphemy,  GHS  RHC 
13:3  tyranny, and sin, which you have discovered to the children of men. 13:4Then departing from him I spoke to them all  GHS  RHC 
13:4  together; 13:5And they all became terrified, and trembled; 13:6Beseeching me to write for them a memorial of supplication, that they might obtain forgiveness; and that I might make the memorial of their prayer ascend up before  GHS  RHC 
13:5  the God of heaven; because they could not themselves thenceforwards address him, nor raise up their GHS  RHC 
13:6  eyes to heaven on account of the disgraceful offence for which they were judged. 13:7Then I wrote a memorial of their prayer and supplications, for their spirits, for everything which they had done, and for the subject of their  GHS  RHC 
13:7  entreaty, that they might obtain remission and rest. 13:8Proceeding on, I continued over the waters of Danbadan, which is on the right to the west of Armon, reading the memorial of their prayer, until I fell  GHS  RHC 
13:8  asleep. 13:9And behold a dream came to me, and visions appeared above me. I fell down and saw a vision of punishment, that I might relate it to the sons of heaven, and reprove them.  GHS  RHC 
13:9  When I awoke I went to them. All being collected together stood weeping in  GHS  RHC 
13:10  Oubelseyael, which is situated between Libanos and Seneser, with their faces veiled. 13:10I related in their presence all the visions which I had seen, and my dream; 13:11And began to utter these words of righteousness, reproving the Watchers of heaven.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 14        
14:1  14:1This is the book of the words of righteousness, and of the reproof of the Watchers, who belong to the world,  GHS  RHC 
14:2  according to that which He, who is holy and great, commanded in the vision. I perceived in my dream, that I was now speaking with a tongue of flesh, and with my breath, which the Mighty One has put into the mouth of men, that they might  GHS  RHC 
14:3  converse with it. 14:2And understand with the heart. As he has created and given to men the power of comprehending the word of understanding, so has he created and given to me the power of reproving  GHS  RHC 
14:4  the Watchers, the offspring of heaven. I have written your petition; and in my vision it has been shown me, that what you request will not be granted you as long as the world endures. 14:3Judgment  GHS  RHC 
14:5  has been passed upon you: your request will not be granted you. 14:4From this time forward, never shall you ascend into heaven; He has said, that on the earth  GHS  RHC 
14:6  He will bind you, as long as the world endures. 14:5But before these things you shall behold the destruction of your beloved sons; you shall not possess them, but they shall fall before you  GHS  RHC 
14:7  by the sword. 14:6Neither shall you entreat for them, not for yourselves; 14:7But you shall weep and supplicate in silence. The words of the book which I  GHS  RHC 
14:8  wrote. 14:8A vision thus appeared to me. 14:9Behold, in that vision clouds and a mist invited me; agitated stars and flashes of lightning impelled and pressed me forwards, while winds in  GHS  RHC 
14:9  the vision assisted my flight, accelerating my progress. 14:10They elevated me aloft to heaven. I proceeded, until I arrived at a wall built with stones of crystal. A vibrating flame surrounded it, which began to  GHS  RHC 
14:10  strike me with terror. 14:11Into this vibrating flame I entered; 14:12And drew nigh to a spacious habitation built also with stones of crystal. Its walls too, as well as pavement, were formed with stones of crystal, and crystal likewise was the ground.  GHS  RHC 
14:11  Its roof had the appearance of agitated stars and flashes of lightning; and among them were GHS  RHC 
14:12  cherubim of fire in a stormy sky. A flame burned around its walls; and its GHS  RHC 
14:13  portal blazed with fire. When I entered into this dwelling, it was hot as fire and cold as ice.  GHS  RHC 
14:14  No trace of delight or of life was there. Terror overwhelmed me, and a fearful shaking seized me. 14:13Violently agitated  GHS  RHC 
14:15  and trembling, I fell upon my face. In the vision I looked. 14:14And behold there was another habitation more spacious  GHS  RHC 
14:16  than the former, every entrance to which was open before me, erected in the midst of a vibrating flame. 14:15So greatly did it excel in all points, in glory, in magnificence, and in magnitude, that it is impossible to describe to GHS  RHC 
14:17  you either the splendour or the extent of it. 14:16Its floor was on fire; above were lightnings and agitated  GHS  RHC 
14:18  stars, while its roof exhibited a blazing fire. 14:17Attentively I surveyed it, and saw that it contained an exalted throne; 14:18The appearance of which was like that of frost; while its circumference resembled the orb of the brilliant sun; and there was the voice of the  GHS  RHC 
14:19  cherubim. 14:19From underneath this mighty throne rivers of flaming fire issued. 14:20To look upon it was impossible.  GHS  RHC 
14:20  14:21One great in glory sat upon it: 14:22Whose robe was brighter than the sun,  GHS  RHC 
14:21  and whiter than snow. 14:23No angel was capable of penetrating to view the face of Him,  GHS  RHC 
14:22  the Glorious and the Effulgent; nor could any mortal behold Him. A fire was flaming around Him. 14:24A fire also of great extent continued to rise up before Him; so that not one of those who surrounded Him was capable of approaching Him, among the myriads of  GHS  RHC 
14:23  myriads who were before Him. To Him holy consultation was needless. Yet did not the sanctified, who were  GHS  RHC 
14:24  near Him, depart far from Him either by night or by day; nor were they removed from Him. I also was so far advanced, with a veil on my face, and trembling. Then the Lord with his own mouth called me, saying, Approach hither,  GHS  RHC 
14:25  Enoch, at my holy word. 14:25And He raised me up, making me draw near even to the entrance. My eye was directed to the ground.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 15        
15:1  15:1Then addressing me, He spoke and said, Hear, neither be afraid, O righteous Enoch,  GHS  RHC 
15:2  you scribe of righteousness: approach hither, and hear my voice. Go, say to the Watchers of heaven, who have sent you to pray for them, You ought to pray for men, and not men  GHS  RHC 
15:3  for you. 15:2Wherefore have you forsaken the lofty and holy heaven, which endures for ever, and have lain with women; have defile yourselves with the daughters of men; have taken to yourselves wives; have acted like the sons  GHS  RHC 
15:4  of the earth, and have begotten an impious offspring? 15:3You being spiritual, holy, and possessing a life which is eternal, have polluted yourselves with women; have begotten in carnal blood; have lusted in the blood of men; and have done as those who are flesh and blood do. 15:4These however die  GHS  RHC 
15:5  and perish. 15:5Therefore have I given to them wives, that they might cohabit with them; that GHS  RHC 
15:6  sons might be born of them; and that this might be transacted upon earth. 15:6But you from the beginning were made  GHS  RHC 
15:7  spiritual, possessing a life which is eternal, and not subject to death for ever. 15:7Therefore I made not wives for you, because, being spiritual, your dwelling is in heaven.  GHS  RHC 
15:8  15:8Now the giants, who have been born of spirit and of flesh, shall be called upon earth evil spirits, and on GHS  RHC 
15:9  earth shall be their habitation. Evil spirits shall proceed from their flesh, because they were created from above; from the holy Watchers was their beginning and primary foundation.  GHS  RHC 
15:10  Evil spirits shall they be upon earth, and the spirits of the wicked shall they be called. The habitation of the spirits of heaven shall be in heaven; but upon earth shall be the habitation of terrestrial spirits, who are born on earth. 15:9The spirits of the giants shall be like clouds, which shall oppress, corrupt, fall, content, and bruise upon earth. 15:10They shall cause lamentation. No food shall they eat; and they shall be GHS  RHC 
15:12  thirsty; they shall be concealed, and shall not rise up against the sons of men, and against women; for they come forth  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 16        
16:1  during the days of slaughter and destruction. 16:1And as to the death of the giants, wheresoever their spirits depart from their bodies, let their flesh, that which is perishable, be without judgment. Thus shall they perish, until the day of the great consummation of the great world.  GHS  RHC 
16:2  A destruction shall take place of the Watchers and the impious. 16:2And now to the Watchers, who have sent you to pray for them, who in the beginning were in heaven, 16:3Say,  GHS  RHC 
16:3  In heaven have you been; secret things, however, have not been manifested to you; yet have you known a reprobated mystery. 16:4And this you have related to women in the hardness of your heart, and by that mystery have women and mankind multiplied evils upon the earth.  GHS  RHC 
16:4  16:5Say to them, Never therefore shall you obtain peace.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 17        
17:1  17:1They raised me up into a certain place, where there was the appearance of a burning fire;  GHS  RHC 
17:2  and when they pleased they assumed the likeness of men. 17:2They carried me to a lofty spot, to a mountain, the top of which reach to heaven. 17:3And I beheld the receptacles of light and of thunder at the extremities of the place, where it was deepest. There was  GHS  RHC 
17:4  a bow of fire, and arrows in their quiver, a sword of fire, and every species of lightning. 17:4Then they elevated  GHS  RHC 
17:5  me to a babbling stream, and to a fire in the west, which received all the setting of the sun. I came to a river of fire, which flowed like water, and emptied itself into the great sea  GHS  RHC 
17:6  westwards. 17:5I saw every large river, until I arrived at the great darkness. I went  GHS  RHC 
17:7  to where all of flesh migrate; and I beheld the mountains of the gloom which constitutes winter, and the place  GHS  RHC 
17:8  from which issues the water in every abyss. 17:6I saw also the mouths of all the rivers in the world, and the mouths of the deep.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 18        
18:1  18:1I then surveyed the receptacles of all the winds, perceiving that they contributed to adorn the whole creation,  GHS  RHC 
18:2  and to preserve the foundation of the earth. 18:2I surveyed the stone which supports the corners of the earth.  GHS  RHC 
18:3  18:3I also beheld the four winds, which bear up the earth, and the firmament of heaven. 18:4And I beheld the winds occupying the exalted sky. 18:5Arising in the midst of heaven and of earth, and constituting the pillars  GHS  RHC 
18:4  of heaven. 18:6I saw the winds which turn the sky, which cause the orb of the sun and of  GHS  RHC 
18:5  all the stars to set; and over the earth I saw the winds which support the clouds. 18:7I saw the path  GHS  RHC 
18:6  of the angels. 18:8I perceived at the extremity of the earth the firmament of heaven above it. Then I passed on towards the south; 18:9Where burnt, both by day and night, six mountains formed of glorious stones;  GHS  RHC 
18:7  three towards the east, and three towards the south. 18:10Those which were towards the east were of a variegated stone; one of which was of margarite, and another of antimony. Those towards the south were of a red stone.  GHS  RHC 
18:8  The middle one reached to heaven like the throne of God; a throne composed of alabaster, the top of which  GHS  RHC 
18:9  was of sapphire. I saw, too, a blazing fire hanging over all the mountains.18:11And there I saw a place on the other side of an extended territory, where waters were collected. 18:12I likewise beheld terrestrial fountains, deep in the fiery columns of heaven. 18:13And in the columns of heaven I beheld fires, which descended without number, but neither  GHS  RHC 
18:12  on high, nor into the deep. Over these fountains also I perceived a place which had neither the firmament of heaven above it, nor the solid ground underneath it; neither was there water above it; nor  GHS  RHC 
18:13  anything on wing; but the spot was desolate. 18:14And there I beheld seven stars, like great blazing mountains,  GHS  RHC 
18:14  and like spirits entreating me. 18:15Then the angel said, This place, until the consummation of heaven and earth, will be the prison of the stars, and the host of heaven. 18:16The stars which roll over fire are those which transgressed the commandment of God before their time  GHS  RHC 
18:16  arrived; for they came not in their proper season. Therefore was He offended with them, and bound them, until the period of the consummation of their crimes in the secret year.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 19        
19:1  19:1Then Uriel said, Here the angels, who cohabited with women, appointed their leaders; 19:2And being numerous in appearance made men profane, and caused them to err; so that they sacrificed to devils as to gods. For in the great day there shall be a judgment, with  GHS  RHC 
19:2  which they shall be judged, until they are consumed; and their wives also shall be judged,  GHS  RHC 
19:3  who led astray the angels of heaven that they might salute them. 19:3And I, Enoch, I alone saw the likeness of the end of all things. Nor did any human being see it, as I saw it.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 20        
20:1  20:1These are the names of the angels who watch. 20:2Uriel, one of the holy angels, who  GHS  RHC 
20:3  presides over clamor and terror. 20:3Raphael, one of the holy angels, who presides over the spirits of men.  GHS  RHC 
20:4  20:4Raguel, one of the holy angels, who inflicts punishment on the world and the luminaries. 20:5Michael, one  GHS  RHC 
20:6  of the holy angels, who, presiding over human virtue, commands the nations. 20:6Sarakiel,  GHS  RHC 
20:7  one of the holy angels, who presides over the spirits of the children of men that transgress. 20:7Gabriel, one of the holy  GHS  RHC 
20:8  angels, who presides over Ikisat, over paradise, and over the cherubim.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 21        
21:1  21:1Then I made a circuit to a place in which nothing was completed. 21:2And there I beheld neither  GHS  RHC 
21:3  the tremendous workmanship of an exalted heaven, nor of an established earth, but a desolate spot, prepared, and terrific. 21:3There, too, I beheld  GHS  RHC 
21:4  seven stars of heaven bound in it together, like great mountains, and like a blazing fire.  GHS  RHC 
21:5  I exclaimed, For what species of crime have they been bound, and why have they been removed to this place? Then Uriel, one of the holy angels who was with me, and who conducted me, answered: Enoch, wherefore  GHS  RHC 
21:6  do you ask; wherefore do you reason with yourself, and anxiously inquire? These are those of the stars which have transgressed the commandment of the most high God; and are here bound, until the infinite  GHS  RHC 
21:7  number of the days of their crimes be completed. 21:4From there I afterwards passed on to another terrific place; 21:5Where I beheld the operation of a great fire blazing and glittering, in the midst of which there was a division. Columns of fire struggled together to the end of the abyss, and deep was their descent.  GHS  RHC 
21:8  But neither its measurement nor magnitude was I able to discover; neither could I perceive its origin. Then I exclaimed, How  GHS  RHC 
21:9  terrible is this place, and how difficult to explore! 21:6Uriel, one of the holy angels who was with me, answered and said: Enoch, why are you alarmed and amazed  GHS  RHC 
21:10  at this terrific place, at the sight of this place of suffering? This, he said, is the prison of the angels; and here they are kept for ever.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 22        
22:1  22:1From there I proceeded to another spot, where I saw on the west a great and lofty mountain, a strong rock,  GHS  RHC 
22:2  and four delightful places. 22:2Internally it was deep, capacious, and very smooth; as smooth as if it had been rolled over: it was both deep and dark to behold.  GHS  RHC 
22:3  22:3Then Raphael, one of the holy angels who were with me, answered and said, These are the delightful places where the spirits, the souls of the dead,  GHS  RHC 
22:4  will be collected; for them were they formed; and here will be collected all the souls of the sons of men. 22:4These places, in which they dwell, shall they occupy until the day of judgment, and until their appointed period. 22:5Their appointed period will be long, even until the great judgment. And I saw the spirits of the sons of men who were dead;  GHS  RHC 
22:5  and their voices reached to heaven, while they were accusing. 22:6Then I inquired of Raphael, an angel who was  GHS  RHC 
22:6  with me, and said, Whose spirit is that, the voice of which reaches to heaven, and accuses?  GHS  RHC 
22:7  22:7He answered, saying, This is the spirit of Abel who was slain by Cain his brother; and who will accuse that brother, until his seed be destroyed from the face of the earth; 22:8Until his seed perish from the seed of the human race.  GHS  RHC 
22:8  22:9At that time therefore I inquired respecting him, and respecting the general judgment, saying, Why is one separated from another?  GHS  RHC 
22:9  He answered, Three separations have been made between the spirits of the dead, and thus have the spirits of the righteous been separated. 22:10Namely, by a chasm, by  GHS  RHC 
22:10  water, and by light above it. 22:11And in the same way likewise are sinners separated when they die, and are buried in the earth; judgment not overtaking them in their  GHS  RHC 
22:11  lifetime. 22:12Here their souls are separated. Moreover, abundant is their suffering until the time of the great judgment, the castigation, and the torment of those who eternally execrate, whose souls are punished and  GHS  RHC 
22:12  bound there for ever. 22:13And thus has it been from the beginning of the world. Thus has there existed a separation between the souls of those who utter complaints, and of those who watch for their destruction, to slaughter them in the day  GHS  RHC 
22:13  of sinners. 22:14A receptacle of this sort has been formed for the souls of unrighteous men, and of sinners; of those who have completed crime, and associated with the impious, whom they resemble. Their souls shall not be annihilated in the day of judgment, neither shall they arise from this place.  GHS  RHC 
22:14  Then I blessed God, 22:15And said, Blessed by my Lord, the Lord of glory and of righteousness, who reigns over all for ever and for ever.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 23        
23:1  23:1From there I went to another place, towards the west, unto the extremities of the earth. 23:2Where I beheld a fire  GHS  RHC 
23:3  blazing and running along without cessation, which intermitted its course neither by day nor by night; but continued always the same.  GHS  RHC 
23:4  23:3I inquired, saying, What is this, which never ceases? 23:4Then Raguel, one of the holy angels who were with me, answered, 23:5And said, This blazing fire, which you behold running towards the west, is that of all the luminaries of heaven.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 24        
24:1  24:1I went from there to another place, and saw a mountain of fire  GHS  RHC 
24:2  flashing both by day and night. I proceeded towards it; and perceived seven splendid mountains, which were all different from each other. 24:2Their stones were brilliant and beautiful; all were brilliant and splendid to behold; and beautiful was their surface. Three mountains were towards the east, and strengthened by being placed one upon another; and three were towards the south, strengthened in a similar manner. There were likewise deep valleys, which did not  GHS  RHC 
24:3  approach each other. And the seventh mountain was in the midst of them.  GHS  RHC 
24:4  In length they all resembled the seat of a throne, and odoriferous trees surrounded them. 24:3Among these there was a tree of an unceasing smell; nor of those which were in Eden was there one of all the fragrant trees which smelt like this. Its leaf, its flower, and its bark never withered,  GHS  RHC 
24:5  and its fruit was beautiful. 24:4Its fruit resembled the cluster of the palm. I exclaimed, Behold! This tree is goodly in aspect, pleasing in its leaf, and the sight of its fruit is delightful to the eye.  GHS  RHC 
24:6  Then Michael, one of the holy and glorious angels who were with me, and one who presided over them,  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 25        
25:1  answered, 24:5And said: Enoch, why do you inquire respecting the odour of this tree?  GHS  RHC 
25:2  24:6Why are you inquisitive to know it? 24:7Then I, Enoch, replied to him, and said,  GHS  RHC 
25:3  Concerning everything I am desirous of instruction, but particularly concerning this tree. 24:8He answered me, saying, That mountain which you behold, the extent of whose head resembles the seat of the Lord, will be the seat on which shall sit the holy and great Lord of glory, the everlasting King, when he shall come and descend to visit GHS  RHC 
25:4  the earth with goodness. 24:9And that tree of an agreeable smell, not one of carnal odor, there shall be no power to touch, until the period of the great judgment. When all shall be punished and consumed  GHS  RHC 
25:5  for ever, this shall be bestowed on the righteous and humble. The fruit of the tree shall be given to the elect. For towards the north life shall be planted in the holy place, towards the habitation of the everlasting King.  GHS  RHC 
25:6  24:10Then shall they greatly rejoice and exult in the Holy One. The sweet odor shall enter into their bones; and they shall live a long life on the earth as your forefathers have lived; neither in their days shall sorrow, distress, trouble, and punishment afflict them.  GHS  RHC 
25:7  24:11And I blessed the Lord of glory, the everlasting King, because He has prepared this tree for the saints, formed it, and declared that He would give it to them.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 26        
26:1  25:1From there I proceeded to the middle of the earth, and beheld a happy and fertile spot, which contained  GHS  RHC 
26:2  branches continually sprouting from the trees which were planted in it. There I saw a holy mountain,  GHS  RHC 
26:3  and underneath it water on the eastern side, which flowed towards the south. I saw also on the east another mountain as high as that; and between them there were deep, but not wide  GHS  RHC 
26:4  valleys. 25:2Water ran towards the mountain to the west of this; and underneath there was likewise another mountain. 25:3There was a valley, but not a wide one, below it; and in the midst of them were other deep and dry valleys towards the extremity of the three. All these valleys, which were deep, but not side, consisted of a strong rock, with a tree which was planted in  GHS  RHC 
26:6  them. And I wondered at the rock and at the valleys, being extremely surprised.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 27        
27:1  26:1Then I said, What means this blessed land, all these lofty trees, and the  GHS  RHC 
27:2  accursed valley between them? 26:2Then Uriel, one of the holy angels who were with me, replied, This valley is the accursed of the accursed for ever. Here shall be collected all who utter with their mouths unbecoming language against God, and speak harsh things of His glory. Here shall they be collected. Here  GHS  RHC 
27:3  shall be their territory. 26:3In the latter days an example of judgment shall be made of them in righteousness before the saints; while those who have received mercy shall for ever, all their days, bless God, the everlasting King.  GHS  RHC 
27:4  26:4And at the period of judgment shall they bless Him for his mercy,  GHS  RHC 
27:5  as He has distributed it to them. Then I blessed God, addressing myself to Him, and making mention, as was meet, of His greatness.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 28        
28:1  27:1From there I proceeded towards the east to the middle of the mountain in the desert,  GHS  RHC 
28:2  the level surface only of which I perceived. 27:2It was full of trees of the seed alluded to; and water leaped  GHS  RHC 
28:3  down upon it. 27:3There appeared a cataract composed as of many cataracts both towards the west and towards the east. Upon one side were trees; upon the other water and dew.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 29        
29:1  28:1Then I went to another place from the desert; towards the east of that mountain which I had approached.  GHS  RHC 
29:2  28:2There I beheld choice trees, particularly, those which produce the sweet-smelling opiate, frankincense and myrrh; and trees unlike to each other. 28:3And over it, above them, was the elevation of the eastern mountain at no great distance.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 30        
30:1  29:1I likewise saw another place with valleys of water which never wasted,  GHS  RHC 
30:3  29:2Where I perceived a goodly tree, which in smell resembled Zasakinon. 29:3And towards the sides of these valleys I perceived cinnamon of a sweet odour. Over them I advanced towards the east  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 31        
31:1  30:1Then I beheld another mountain containing trees, from which water flowed like  GHS  RHC 
31:2  Neketro, Its name was Sarira, and Kalboneba. And upon this mountain I beheld another mountain, upon which were trees of Alva. 30:2These trees were full,  GHS  RHC 
31:3  like almond trees, and strong; and when they produced fruit, it was superior to all redolence.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 32        
32:1  31:1After these things, surveying the entrances of the north, above the mountains, I perceived seven mountains replete with pure nard, odoriferous trees, cinnamon and papyrus.  GHS  RHC 
32:2  31:2From there I passed on above the summits of those mountains to some distance eastwards, and went over the Erythraean sea. And when I was advanced far beyond it, I passed along above the angel Zateel, and arrived at the garden of righteousness.  GHS  RHC 
32:3  In this garden I beheld, among other trees, some which were numerous and large, and which flourished there. 31:3Their fragrance was agreeable and powerful, and their appearance both varied and elegant. The tree of knowledge also was there, of which if any one eats, he becomes endowed with great wisdom.  GHS  RHC 
32:4  31:4It was like a species of the tamarind tree, bearing fruit which  GHS  RHC 
32:5  resembled grapes extremely fine; and its fragrance extended to a considerable distance.  GHS  RHC 
32:6  I exclaimed, How beautiful is this tree, and how delightful is its appearance! 31:5Then holy Raphael, an angel who was with me, answered and said, This is the tree of knowledge, of which your ancient father and your aged mother ate, who were before you; and who, obtaining knowledge, their eyes being opened, and knowing themselves to be naked, were expelled from the garden.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 33        
33:1  32:1From there I went on towards the extremities of the earth; where I saw large beasts different from each other, and birds various in their countenances and forms, as well as with notes of different sounds. 32:2To the east of these beasts I perceived the extremities of the earth, where heaven  GHS  RHC 
33:2  ceased. The gates of heaven stood open, and I beheld the celestial stars come forth.  GHS  RHC 
33:3  I numbered them as they proceeded out of the gate, and wrote them all down, as they came out one by one according to their number. I wrote down their names altogether, their GHS  RHC 
33:4  times and their seasons, as the angel Uriel, who was with me, pointed them out to me. 32:3He showed them all to me, and wrote down an account of them. 32:4He also wrote down for me their names, their regulations, and their operations.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 34        
34:1  33:1From there I advanced on towards the north, to the extremities of the earth. 33:2And there I saw a great and  GHS  RHC 
34:2  glorious wonder at the extremities of the whole earth. 33:3I saw there heavenly gates opening into heaven; three of them distinctly separated. The northern winds proceeded from them, blowing cold, hail, frost,  GHS  RHC 
34:3  snow, dew, and rain. 33:4From one of the gates they blew mildly; but when they blew from the two other gates, it was with violence and force. They blew over the earth strongly.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 35        
35:1  34:1From there I went to the extremities of the world westwards; 34:2Where I perceived three gates open, as I had seen in the north; the gates and passages through them being of equal magnitude.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 36        
36:1  35:1Then I proceeded to the extremities of the earth southwards; where I saw three gates open  GHS  RHC 
36:2  to the south, from which issued dew, rain, and wind. 35:2From there I went to the extremities of heaven eastwards; where I saw three heavenly gates open to the east, which had smaller gates  GHS  RHC 
36:3  within them. Through each of these small gates the stars of heaven passed on, and proceeded towards the west by a path which was seen by them, and that at every period of their appearance. 35:3When I beheld them, I blessed; every time in which they appeared, I blessed the Lord of glory, who had made those great and splendid signs, that they might display the magnificence of this works to angels and to the souls of men; and that these might glorify all his works and operations; might see the effect of his power; might glorify the great labour of his hands; and bless him for ever.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 37        
37:1  37:1The vision which he saw, the second vision of wisdom, which Enoch saw, the son of Jared, the son GHS  RHC 
37:2  of Malaleel, the son of Canan, the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam. This is the commencement of the word of wisdom, which I received to declare and tell to those who dwell upon earth. Hear from the beginning, and understand to the end, the holy  GHS  RHC 
37:3  things which I utter in the presence of the Lord of spirits. Those who were before us thought it good to speak; 37:2And let not us, who come after, obstruct the beginning of wisdom.  GHS  RHC 
37:4  Until the present period never has there been given before the Lord of spirits that which I have received, wisdom according the capacity of my intellect, and according to the pleasure of the Lord of spirits; that which  GHS  RHC 
37:5  I have received from him, a portion of life eternal. 37:3And I obtained three parables, which I declared to the inhabitants of the world.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 38        
38:1  38:1Parable the first. When the congregation of the righteous shall be manifested; and sinners be judged for their crimes, and be troubled in the sight of the world;  GHS  RHC 
38:2  38:2When righteousness shall be manifested in the presence of the righteous themselves, who will be elected for their good works duly weighed by the Lord of spirits; and when the light of the righteous and the elect, who dwell on earth, shall be manifested; where will the habitation of sinners be? And where the place of rest for those who have rejected the Lord of spirits? It would have been better for them, had they never been born.  GHS  RHC 
38:3  38:3When, too, the secrets of the righteous shall be revealed, then shall sinners be judged; and impious men shall be afflicted in the presence of the righteous and the elect.  GHS  RHC 
38:4  38:4From that period those who possess the earth shall cease to be powerful and exalted. Neither shall they be capable of beholding the countenances of the holy; for the light of the countenances of the holy, the righteous, and the elect, has been seen by the Lord of spirits. GHS  RHC 
38:5  38:5Yet shall not the mighty kings of that period be destroyed; but be delivered into the hands of the righteous and the holy.  GHS  RHC 
38:6  38:6Nor thenceforwards shall any obtain commiseration from the Lord of spirits, because their lives in this world will have been completed.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 39        
39:1  39:1In those days shall the elect and holy race descend from the  GHS  RHC 
39:2  upper heavens, and their seed shall then be with the sons of men. Enoch received books of indignation and wrath, and books of hurry and agitation. 39:2Never shall they obtain mercy, saith the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 
39:3  39:3A cloud then snatched me up, and the wind raised me above the surface of the earth, placing me at the extremity of the heavens.  GHS  RHC 
39:4  39:4There I saw another vision; I saw the habitations and resting places of the saints.  GHS  RHC 
39:5  There my eyes beheld their habitations with the angels, and their resting places with the holy ones. They were entreating, supplicating, and praying for the sons of men; while righteousness like water flowed before them, and mercy like dew was scattered over the earth. And thus shall it be with them for ever and for ever.  GHS  RHC 
39:6  39:5At that time my eyes beheld the dwelling of the elect, of truth, faith, and righteousness.  GHS  RHC 
39:7  39:6Countless shall be the number of the holy and the elect, in the presence of God for ever and for ever. 39:7Their residence I beheld under the wings of the Lord of spirits. All the holy and the elect sung before him, in appearance like a blaze of fire; their mouths being full of blessings, and their lips glorifying the name of the Lord of spirits. And righteousness incessantly dwelt before him.  GHS  RHC 
39:8  39:8There was I desirous of remaining, and my soul longed for that habitation. There was my antecedent inheritance; for thus had I prevailed before the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 
39:9  39:9At that time I glorified and extolled the name of the Lord of spirits with blessing and with praise; for he has established it with blessing and with praise, according to his own good pleasure.  GHS  RHC 
39:10  39:10That place long did my eyes contemplate. I blessed and said, Blessed be he, blessed from the beginning for ever. In the beginning, before the world was created, and without end is his knowledge. 39:11What is this world?  GHS  RHC 
39:12  Of every existing generation those shall bless you who do not spiritually sleep but stand before your glory, blessing, glorifying, exalting you, and saying, The holy, holy, Lord of spirits, fills the whole world of spirits. 39:12There my eyes beheld all who, without sleeping, stand before him and bless him, saying, Blessed be you, and blessed be the name of God for ever and for ever. Then my countenance became changed, until I was incapable of seeing.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 40        
40:1  40:1After this I beheld thousands of thousands, and myriads of myriads,  GHS  RHC 
40:2  and an infinite number of people, standing before the Lord of spirits. 40:2On the four wings likewise of the Lord of spirits, on the four sides, I perceived others, besides those who were standing before him. Their names, too, I know; because the angel, who proceeded with me, declared them to me, discovering to me every secret thing.  GHS  RHC 
40:3  40:3Then I heard the voices of those upon the four sides magnifying the Lord of glory.  GHS  RHC 
40:4  40:4The first voice blessed the Lord of spirits for ever and for ever. 40:5The second voice I heard blessing  GHS  RHC 
40:6  the Elect One, and the elect who suffer on account of the Lord of spirits. 40:6The third voice I heard petitioning and praying for those who dwell upon earth, and supplicate the name of the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 
40:7  40:7The fourth voice I heard expelling the impious angels, and prohibiting them from entering into the presence of the Lord  GHS  RHC 
40:8  of spirits, to prefer accusations against the inhabitants of the earth. 40:8After this I besought the angel of peace, who proceeded with me, to explain all that was concealed. I said to him, Who are those whom I have seen on the four sides,  GHS  RHC 
40:9  and who words I have heard and written down? He replied, The first is the merciful, the patient, the holy Michael. 40:9The second is he who presides over every suffering and every affliction of the sons of men, the holy Raphael. The third, who presides over all that is powerful, is Gabriel. And the fourth, who presides over repentance, and the hope of those who will inherit eternal life, is Phanuel.  GHS  RHC 
40:10  These are the four angels of the most high God, and their four voices, which at that time I heard.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 41        
41:1  41:1After this I beheld the secrets of the heavens and of paradise, according to its divisions; and of  GHS  RHC 
41:2  human action, as they weight it there in balances. I saw the habitations of the elect, and the habitations of the holy. And there my eyes beheld all the sinners, who denied the Lord of glory, and whom they were expelling from there, and dragging away, as they stood there; no punishment proceeding against them from the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 
41:3  41:2There, too, my eyes beheld the secrets of the lightning and the thunder; and the secrets of the winds, how they are distributed as they blow over the earth: the secrets of the winds, of the dew, and of the clouds. There  GHS  RHC 
41:4  I perceived the place from which they issued forth, and became saturated with the dust of the earth. 41:3There I saw the wooden receptacles out of which the winds became separated, the receptacle of hail, the receptacle of snow, the receptacle of the clouds, and the cloud itself, which continued over the earth before the  GHS  RHC 
41:5  creation of the world. 41:4I beheld also the receptacles of the moon, whence they came, whither they proceeded, their glorious return, and how one became more splendid than another. I marked their rich progress, their unchangeable progress, their disunited and undiminished progress; their observance of a mutual fidelity by a stable oath;  GHS  RHC 
41:6  their proceeding forth before the sun, and their adherence to the path allotted them, in obedience to the command  GHS  RHC 
41:7  of the Lord of spirits. Potent is his name for ever and for ever. 41:5After this I perceived, that the path both concealed and manifest of the moon, as well as the progress of its path, was there completed by day and by night; while each, one with another, looked towards the Lord of spirits, magnifying and praising without cessation, since praise to them is rest;  GHS  RHC 
41:8  for in the splendid sun there is a frequent conversion to blessing and to malediction. 41:6The course of the moonĘs path to the righteous is light, but to sinners it is darkness; in the name of the Lord of spirits, who created a division between light and darkness, and, separating the spirits of men, strengthened the spirits of the righteous in the name of his own righteousness.  GHS  RHC 
41:9  41:7Nor does the angel prevent this, neither is he endowed with the power of preventing it; for the Judge beholds them all, and judges them all in his own presence.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 42        
42:1  42:1Wisdom found not a place on earth where she could inhabit; her dwelling therefore is in heaven.  GHS  RHC 
42:2  42:2Wisdom went forth to dwell among the sons of men, but she obtained not a habitation. Wisdom returned to her place, and seated herself in the midst of the angels.  GHS  RHC 
42:3  But iniquity went forth after her return, who unwillingly found a habitation, and resided among them, as rain in the desert, and as a dew in a thirsty land.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 43        
43:1  43:1I beheld another splendour, and the stars of heaven. I observed that he called them all by their respective  GHS  RHC 
43:2  names, and that they heard. In a righteous balance I saw that he weighed out with their light the amplitude of their places, and the day of their appearance, and their conversion. Splendour produced splendour; and their conversion was into the  GHS  RHC 
43:3  number of the angels, and of the faithful. 43:2Then I inquired of the angel, who proceeded  GHS  RHC 
43:4  with me, and explained to me secret things, What their names were. He answered. A similitude of those has the Lord of spirits shown you. They are names of the righteous who dwell upon earth, and who believe in the name of the Lord of spirits for ever and for ever.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 44        
44:1  44:1Another thing also I saw respecting splendour; that it rises out of the stars, and becomes splendour; being incapable of forsaking them.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 45        
45:1  45:1Parable the second, respecting these who deny the name of the habitation of the holy ones, and of the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 
45:2  45:2Heaven they shall not ascend, nor shall they come on the earth. This shall be the portion of sinners, who deny the name of the Lord of spirits, and who are thus reserved for the day of punishment and of affliction.  GHS  RHC 
45:3  45:3In that day shall the Elect One sit upon a throne of glory; and shall choose their conditions and countless habitations, while their spirits within them shall be strengthened, when they behold my Elect One, for those who have fled for protection to my holy and glorious name.  GHS  RHC 
45:4  45:4In that day I will cause my Elect One to dwell in the midst of them; will change the face of heaven; will bless it, and illuminate it for ever.  GHS  RHC 
45:5  45:5I will also change the face of the earth, will bless it; and cause those whom I have elected to dwell upon it. But those who have committed sin and iniquity shall not inhabit it,  GHS  RHC 
45:6  for I have marked their proceedings. My righteous ones will I satisfy with peace, placing them before me; but the condemnation of sinners shall draw near, that I may destroy them from the face of the earth.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 46        
46:1  46:1There I beheld the Ancient of days, whose head was like white wool, and with him another, whose countenance resembled that of man. His countenance was full of grace, like that of one of the holy angels.  GHS  RHC 
46:2  Then I inquired of one of the angels, who went with me, and who showed me every secret thing, concerning this GHS  RHC 
46:3  Son of Man; who he was; whence he was and why he accompanied the Ancient of days. 46:2He answered and said to me, This is the Son of Man, to whom righteousness belongs; with whom righteousness has dwelt; and who will reveal all the treasures of that which is concealed: for the Lord of spirits has chosen him; and his portion has surpassed all before the Lord of spirits in everlasting uprightness.  GHS  RHC 
46:4  46:3This Son of Man, whom you behold, shall raise up kings and the mighty from their dwelling places, and the powerful from their thrones; shall loosen the bridles of the powerful, and break in pieces the teeth of sinners.  GHS  RHC 
46:5  46:4He shall hurl kings from their thrones and their dominions; because they will not exalt and praise him, nor humble themselves before him, by whom their kingdoms were granted to them.  GHS  RHC 
46:6  The countenance likewise of the mighty shall He cast down, filling them with confusion. Darkness shall be their habitation, and worms shall be their bed; nor from that their bed shall they hope to be again raised, because they exalted not the name of the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 
46:7  46:5They shall condemn the stars of heaven, shall lift up their hands against the Most High, shall tread upon and inhabit the earth, exhibiting all their acts of iniquity, even their works of iniquity. Their strength shall be in their riches, and their faith in the gods whom they have formed with their own hands. They shall deny the name of the Lord of spirits,  GHS  RHC 
46:8  and shall expel him from the temples, in which they assemble; 46:6And with him the faithful, who suffer in the name of the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 47        
47:1  47:1In that day the prayer of the holy and the righteous, and the blood of the righteous, shall ascend from the earth into the presence of the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 
47:2  47:2In that day shall the holy ones assemble, who dwell above the heavens, and with united voice petition, supplicate, praise, laud, and bless the name of the Lord of spirits, on account of the blood of the righteous which has been shed; that the prayer of the righteous may not be intermitted before the Lord of spirits; that for them he would execute judgment; and that his patience may not endure for ever. GHS  RHC 
47:3  47:3At that time I beheld the Ancient of days, while he sat upon the throne of his glory, while the book of the living was opened in his presence, and while all the powers which were above the heavens stood around and before him.  GHS  RHC 
47:4  47:4Then were the hearts of the saints full of joy, because the consummation of righteousness was arrived, the supplication of the saints heard, and the blood of the righteous appreciated by the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 48        
48:1  48:1In that place I beheld a fountain of righteousness, which never failed, encircled by many springs of wisdom. Of these all the thirsty drank, and were filled with wisdom, having their habitation with the righteous, the elect, and the holy.  GHS  RHC 
48:2  48:2In that hour was this Son of Man invoked before the Lord of spirits, and his name in the presence of the Ancient of days.  GHS  RHC 
48:3  48:3Before the sun and the signs were created, before the stars of heaven were formed, his name was invoked in the presence of the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 
48:4  A support shall he be for the righteous and the holy to lean upon, without falling; and he shall be the light of nations. 48:4He shall be the hope of those whose hearts are troubled.  GHS  RHC 
48:5  All, who dwell on earth, shall fall down and worship before him; shall bless and glorify him, and sing praises to the name of the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 
48:6  48:5Therefore the Elect and the Concealed One existed in his presence, before the world was created, and for ever.  GHS  RHC 
48:7  48:6In his presence he existed, and has revealed to the saints and to the righteous the wisdom of the Lord of spirits; for he has preserved the lot of the righteous, because they have hated and rejected this world of iniquity, and have detested all its works and ways, in the name of the Lord of spirits. 48:7For in his name shall they be preserved; and his will shall be their life.  GHS  RHC 
48:8  In those days shall the kings of the earth and the mighty men, who have gained the world by their achievements, become humble in countenance. 48:8For in the day of their anxiety and trouble their souls shall not be saved; and they shall be in subjection to those whom I have chosen. 48:9I will cast them like hay into the fire, and like lead into the water. Thus shall they burn in the presence of the righteous, and sink in the presence of the holy; nor shall a tenth part of them be found.  GHS  RHC 
48:10  48:10But in the day of their trouble, the world shall obtain tranquillity. 48:11In his presence shall they fall, and not be raised up again; nor shall there be any one to take them out of his hands, and to lift them up: for they have denied the Lord of spirits, and his Messiah. The name of the Lord of spirits shall be blessed.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 49        
49:1  48:1Wisdom is poured forth like water, and glory fails not before him for ever and ever;  GHS  RHC 
49:2  for potent is he in all the secrets of righteousness. 48:2But iniquity passes away like a shadow, and possesses not a fixed station: for the Elect One stands before the Lord of spirits; and his glory is for ever and ever; and his power from generation to generation.  GHS  RHC 
49:3  48:3With him dwells the spirit of intellectual wisdom, the spirit of instruction and of power, and the spirit of those who sleep in righteousness;  GHS  RHC 
49:4  he shall judge secret things. 48:4Nor shall any be able to utter a single word before him; for the Elect One is in the presence of the Lord of Spirits, according to his own pleasure.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 50        
50:1  49:1In those days the saints and the chosen shall undergo a change. The light of day shall rest upon them; and the splendour and glory of the saints shall be changed.  GHS  RHC 
50:2  49:2In the day of trouble evil shall be heaped up upon sinners; but the righteous shall triumph in the name of the Lord of spirits. 49:3Others shall be made to see, that they must repent, and forsake the works of their hands;  GHS  RHC 
50:3  and that glory awaits them not in the presence of the Lord of spirits; yet that by his name they may be saved. The Lord of spirits will have compassion on them; for great is his mercy;  GHS  RHC 
50:4  and righteousness is in his judgment, and in the presence of his glory; nor in his judgment shall iniquity stand. He who repents not before him shall perish.  GHS  RHC 
50:5  49:4Henceforward I will not have mercy on them, saith the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 51        
51:1  50:1In those days shall the earth deliver up from her womb, and hell deliver up from hers, that which it has received; and destruction shall restore that which it owes.  GHS  RHC 
51:2  50:2He shall select the righteous and holy from among them; for the day of their salvation has approached.  GHS  RHC 
51:3  50:3And in those days shall the Elect One sit upon his throne, while every secret of intellectual wisdom shall proceed from his mouth, for the Lord of spirits has gifted and glorified him.  GHS  RHC 
51:4  50:4In those days the mountains shall skip like rams, and the hills shall leap like young sheep satiated with milk; and all the righteous shall become like angels in heaven. 50:5Their countenance shall be bright with joy; for in those days shall the Elect One be exalted.  GHS  RHC 
51:5  The earth shall rejoice; the righteous shall inhabit it, and the elect possess it.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 52        
52:1  51:1After that period, in the place where I had seen every secret sight,  GHS  RHC 
52:2  I was snatched up in a whirlwind, and carried off westwards. 51:2There my eyes beheld the secrets of heaven, and all which existed on earth; a mountain of iron, a mountain of copper, a mountain of silver, a mountain of gold, a mountain of fluid metal, and a mountain of lead.  GHS  RHC 
52:3  51:3And I inquired of the angel who went with me, saying, What are these things, which in secret I behold?  GHS  RHC 
52:4  51:4He said, All these things which you behold shall be for the dominion of the Messiah, that he may command, and be powerful upon earth.  GHS  RHC 
52:5  51:5And that angel of peace answered me, saying, Wait but a short time, and you shalt understand, and every secret thing shall be revealed to you, which the Lord of spirits has decreed.  GHS  RHC 
52:6  Those mountains which you have seen, the mountain of iron, the mountain of copper, the mountain of silver, the mountain of gold, the mountain of fluid metal, and the mountain of lead, all these in the presence of the Elect One shall be like a honeycomb before the fire, and like water descending from above upon these mountains; and shall become debilitated before his feet.  GHS  RHC 
52:7  51:6In those days men shall not be saved by gold and by silver. 51:7Nor shall they have it in their power to secure themselves, and to fly.  GHS  RHC 
52:8  51:8There shall be neither iron for war, nor a coat of mail for the breast. 51:9Copper shall be useless; useless also that which neither rusts nor consumes away; and lead shall not be coveted.  GHS  RHC 
52:9  51:10All these things shall be rejected, and perish from off the earth, when the Elect One shall appear in the presence of the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 53        
53:1  52:1There my eyes beheld a deep valley; and wide was its entrance. 52:2All who dwell on land, on the sea, and in islands, shall bring to it gifts, presents, and offerings; yet that deep valley shall not be full.  GHS  RHC 
53:2  Their hands shall commit iniquity. Whatsoever they produce by labour, the sinners shall devour with crime. But they shall perish from the face of the Lord of spirits, and from the face of his earth. They shall stand up, and shall not fail for ever and ever.  GHS  RHC 
53:3  52:3I beheld the angels of punishment, who were dwelling there, and preparing every instrument of Satan.  GHS  RHC 
53:4  52:4Then I inquired of the angel of peace, who proceeded with me, for whom those instruments were preparing.  GHS  RHC 
53:5  52:5He said, These they are preparing for the kings and powerful ones of the earth, that thus they may perish.  GHS  RHC 
53:6  52:6After which the righteous and chosen house of his congregation shall appear, and thenceforward unchangeable in the name of the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 
53:7  52:7Nor shall those mountains exist in his presence as the earth and the hills, as the fountains of water exist. And the righteous shall be relieved from the vexation of sinners.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 54        
54:1  53:1Then I looked and turned myself to another part of the earth, where I beheld a deep valley burning with fire.  GHS  RHC 
54:2  53:2To this valley they brought monarchs and the mighty.  GHS  RHC 
54:3  53:3And there my eyes beheld the instruments which they were making, fetters of iron without weight. GHS  RHC 
54:4  53:4Then I inquired of the angel of peace, who proceeded with me, saying, For whom are these fetters and instruments prepared? 53:5He replied, These are prepared for the host of Azazeel, that they may be delivered over and adjudged to the lowest condemnation; and that their angels may be overwhelmed with hurled stones, as the Lord of spirits has commanded.  GHS  RHC 
54:6  53:6Michael and Gabriel, Raphael and Phanuel shall be strengthened in that day, and shall then cast them into a furnace of blazing fire, that the Lord of spirits may be avenged of them for their crimes; because they became ministers of Satan, and seduced those who dwell upon earth.  GHS  RHC 
54:7  53:7In those days shall punishment go forth from the Lord of spirits; and the receptacles of water which are above the heavens shall be opened, and the fountains likewise, which are under the heavens and under the earth.  GHS  RHC 
54:8  53:8All the waters, which are in the heavens and above them, shall be mixed together. 53:9The water which is above heaven shall be the agent;  GHS  RHC 
54:9  53:10And the water which is under the earth shall be the recipient: and all shall be destroyed who dwell  GHS  RHC 
54:10  upon earth, and who dwell under the extremities of heaven. 53:11By these means shall they understand the iniquity which they have committed on earth: and by these means shall they perish.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 55        
55:1  54:1Afterwards the Ancient of days repented, and said, In vain have I destroyed all the inhabitants  GHS  RHC 
55:2  of the earth. 54:2And he sware by his great name, saying, Henceforwards I will not act thus towards all those who dwell upon earth. 54:3But I will place a sign in the heavens; and it shall be a faithful witness between me and them for ever, as long as the days of heaven and earth last upon the earth. 54:4Afterwards, according to this my decree,  GHS  RHC 
55:3  when I shall be disposed to seize them beforehand, by the instrumentality of angels, in the day of affliction and trouble, my wrath and my punishment shall remain upon them, my punishment and my wrath, saith  GHS  RHC 
55:4  God the Lord of spirits. 54:5O you kings, O you mighty, who inhabit the world you shall behold my Elect One, sitting upon the throne of my glory. And he shall judge Azazeel, all his associates, and all his hosts, in the name of the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 56        
56:1  54:6There likewise I beheld hosts of angels who were moving in punishment, confined in a net-work  GHS  RHC 
56:2  of iron and brass. Then I inquired of the angel of peace, who proceeded with me, To whom  GHS  RHC 
56:3  those under confinement were going. 54:7He said, To each of their elect and their beloved, that they may be cast into the fountains and deep recesses of the valley.  GHS  RHC 
56:4  54:8And that valley shall be filled with their elect and beloved; the days of whose life shall be consumed, but the days of their error shall be innumerable.  GHS  RHC 
56:5  54:9Then shall princes combine together, and conspire. The chiefs of the east, among the Parthians and Medes, shall remove kings, in whom a spirit of perturbation shall enter. They shall hurl them from their thrones, springing as lions from their dens, and like famished wolves into the midst of the flock.  GHS  RHC 
56:6  54:10They shall go up, and tread upon the land of their elect. The land of their elect shall be before them. The threshing-floor, the path,  GHS  RHC 
56:7  and the city of my righteous people shall impede the progress of their horses. They shall rise up to destroy each other; their right hand shall be strengthened; nor shall a man acknowledge his friend or his brother; 54:11Nor the son his father and his mother; until the number of the dead bodies shall be completed, by their death and punishment. Neither shall this take place without cause.  GHS  RHC 
56:8  54:12In those days shall the mouth of hell be opened, into which they shall be immerged; hell shall destroy and swallow up sinners from the face of the elect.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 57        
57:1  55:1After this I beheld another army of chariots with men riding in them. 55:2And  GHS  RHC 
57:2  they came upon the wind from the east, from the west, and from the south. 55:3The sound of the noise of their chariots was heard. 55:4And when that agitation took place; the saints out of heaven perceived it; the pillar of the earth shook from its foundation; and the sound was heard from the extremities of the earth unto the extremities of heaven  GHS  RHC 
57:3  at the same time. 55:5Then they all fell down, and worshipped the Lord of spirits. 55:6This is the end of the second parable.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 58        
58:1  56:1I now began to utter the third parable, concerning the saints and the elect.  GHS  RHC 
58:2  56:2Blessed are you, O saints and elect, for glorious is your lot.  GHS  RHC 
58:3  56:3The saints shall exist in the light of the sun, and the elect in the light of everlasting life, the days of whose life shall never terminate; nor shall the days of the saints be numbered,  GHS  RHC 
58:4  who seek for light, and obtain righteousness with the Lord of spirits. 56:4Peace be to the saints with the Lord of the world.  GHS  RHC 
58:5  56:5Henceforward shall the saints be told to seek in heaven the secrets of righteousness, the portion of faith; for like the sun has it arisen upon the earth, while darkness has passed away.  GHS  RHC 
58:6  There shall be light interminable; nor shall they enter upon the enumeration of time; for darkness shall be previously destroyed, and light shall increase before the Lord of spirits; before the Lord of spirits shall the light of uprightness increase for ever.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 59        
59:1  57:1In those days my eyes beheld the secrets of the lightnings and the splendours, and the judgment belonging to them. 57:2They lighten for a blessing and for a curse, according to the will of the Lord of GHS  RHC 
59:2  spirits. 57:3And there I saw the secrets of the thunder, when it rattles above in heaven, and its sound is heard. 57:4The habitations also of the earth were shown to me. The sound of the thunder is for peace and for blessing, as well as for a curse, according to the word of the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 
59:3  57:5Afterwards every secret of the splendours and of the lightnings was seen by me. For blessing and for fertility they lighten.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 60        
60:1  58:1In the five hundredth year, and in the seventh month, on the fourteenth day of the month, of the lifetime of Enoch, in that parable, I saw that the heaven of heavens shook; that it shook violently; and that the powers of the Most High, and the angels, thousands and thousands, and myriads of myriads, were GHS  RHC 
60:2  agitated with great agitation. And when I looked, the Ancient of days was sitting on the throne of his glory, while the angels and saints were standing around him.  GHS  RHC 
60:3  A great trembling came upon me, and terror seized me. My loins were bowed down and loosened; my reins were dissolved; and I fell upon my face.  GHS  RHC 
60:4  The holy Michael, another holy angel, one of the holy ones, was sent, who raised me up. 58:2And when he raised me, my spirit returned; for I was incapable of enduring this vision of violence, its  GHS  RHC 
60:5  agitation, and the concussion of heaven. 58:3Then holy Michael said to me, Why are you disturbed at this vision? 58:4Hitherto has existed the day of mercy; and he has been merciful and  GHS  RHC 
60:6  longsuffering towards all who dwell upon the earth. 58:5But when the time shall come, then shall the power, the punishment, and the judgment take place, which the Lord of spirits has prepared for those who prostrate themselves to the judgment of righteousness, for those who abjure that judgment, and for those who take his name in vain. 58:6That day has been prepared for the elect as a day of covenant; and for sinners as a day of inquisition. 58:13Then shall children be slain with their mothers, and sons with their fathers. 58:14And when the punishment of the Lord of spirits shall continue, upon them shall it continue, that the punishment of the Lord of spirits may not take place in vain. After that, judgment shall exist with mercy and longsuffering.  GHS  RHC 
60:7  58:7In that day shall be distributed for food two monsters; a female monster, whose name is Leviathan, dwelling in the  GHS  RHC 
60:8  depths of the sea, above the springs of waters; 58:8And a male monster, whose name is Behemoth; which possesses, moving on his breast, the invisible wilderness. 58:9His name was Dendayen in the east of the garden, where the elect and the righteous will dwell; where he received it from my ancestor, who was man, from Adam the first  GHS  RHC 
60:9  of men, whom the Lord of spirits made. 58:10Then I asked of another angel to show me the power of those monsters, how they became separated, how they became separated on the same day, one being in the depths  GHS  RHC 
60:10  of the sea, and one in the dry desert. 58:11And he said, You, son of man, are here desirous of understanding secret things.  GHS  RHC 
60:11  59:1Then another angel, who proceeded with me, spoke to me; 59:2And showed me the first and last secrets in heaven above, and in the depths of the earth: 59:3In the extremities of  GHS  RHC 
60:12  heaven, and in the foundations of it, and in the receptacle of the winds. 59:4He showed me how their spirits were divided; how they were balanced; and how both the springs and the winds were numbered according to the force of their spirit. 59:5He showed me the power of the moon's light, that its power is a just one; as well as the divisions of the stars, according to their respective names; 59:6That every division  GHS  RHC 
60:13  is divided; that the lightning flashes; 59:7That its troops immediately obey;  GHS  RHC 
60:14  and that a cessation takes place during thunder in continuance of its sound. Nor are the thunder and the lightning separated; neither do both of them move with GHS  RHC 
60:15  one spirit; yet they are not separated. 59:8For when the lightning lightens, the thunder sounds, and the spirit at a proper period pauses, making an equal division between them; for the receptacle, upon which their periods depend, is loose as sand. Each of them at a proper season is restrained with a bridle; and turned by the power of the spirit, which thus propels them according to the spacious extent of the earth.  GHS  RHC 
60:16  59:9The spirit likewise of the sea is potent and strong; and as a strong power causes it to ebb, so is it driven forwards, and scattered against the mountains  GHS  RHC 
60:17  of the earth. The spirit of the frost has its angel; in the spirit of hail there is a good  GHS  RHC 
60:18  angel; the spirit of snow ceases in its strength, and a solitary spirit is in it, which ascends from it like vapour, and is called refrigeration. 59:10The spirit also of mist dwells with them in their receptacle; but it has a receptacle to itself; for its progress is in splendour. 59:11In light, and in darkness, in winter and in summer. Its receptacle is bright, and an angel is in it.  GHS  RHC 
60:20  59:12The spirit of dew has its abode in the extremities of heaven, in connection with the receptacle of rain; and its progress is in winter and in summer. The cloud produced by it, and the cloud of the  GHS  RHC 
60:21  mist, become united; one gives to the other; and when the spirit of rain is in motion from its receptacle, angels come, and opening its receptacle, bring it forth. 59:13When likewise it is sprinkled over all the earth, it forms an union with every kind of water on the ground; for the waters remain on  GHS  RHC 
60:22  the ground, because they afford nourishment to the earth from the Most High, who is in heaven. 59:14Upon this account therefore there is a regulation in the quantity of rain, which the angels receive. 59:15These things I saw; all of them, even paradise.  GHS  RHC 
60:23  58:12And the angel of peace, who was with me, said, These two monsters are by the power of God prepared to become food, that the punishment of God may not be in vain.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 61        
61:1  60:1In those days I beheld long ropes given to those angels; who took to their wings, and fled, advancing towards the north.  GHS  RHC 
61:2  60:2And I inquired of the angel, saying, Wherefore have they taken those long ropes, and gone forth? He said, They are gone forth to measure.  GHS  RHC 
61:3  60:3The angel, who proceeded with me, said, These are the measures of the righteous; and cords shall the righteous bring, that they may trust in the name of the Lord of spirits for ever and ever.  GHS  RHC 
61:4  60:4The elect shall begin to dwell with the elect. 60:5And these are the measures which shall be given to faith, and which shall strengthen the words of righteousness.  GHS  RHC 
61:5  60:6These measures shall reveal all the secrets in the depth of the earth. 60:7And it shall be, that those who have been destroyed in the desert, and who have been devoured by the fish of the sea, and by wild beasts, shall return, and trust in the day of the Elect One; for none shall perish in the presence of the Lord of spirits, nor shall any be capable of perishing.  GHS  RHC 
61:6  60:8Then they received the commandment, all who were in the heavens above; to whom a combined power, voice, and splendour, like fire, were given.  GHS  RHC 
61:7  60:9And first, with their voice, they blessed him, they exalted him, they glorified him with wisdom, and ascribed to him wisdom with the word, and with the breath of life.  GHS  RHC 
61:8  60:10Then the Lord of spirits seated upon the throne of his glory the Elect One; 60:11Who shall judge all the works of the holy, in heaven above, and in a balance shall he weigh their actions.  GHS  RHC 
61:9  And when he shall lift up his countenance to judge their secret ways in the word of the name of the Lord of spirits, and their progress in the path of the righteous judgment of God most high; 60:12They shall all speak with united voice; and bless, glorify, exalt, and praise, in the name of the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 
61:10  60:13He shall call to every power of the heavens, to all the holy above, and to the power of God. The Cherubim, the Seraphim, and the Ophanin, all the angels of power, and all the angels of the Lords, namely, of the Elect One, and of the other Power, who was upon earth over the water on that day, 60:14Shall raise their united voice; shall bless, glorify, praise, and exalt with the spirit of faith, with the spirit of wisdom and patience, with the spirit of mercy, with the spirit of judgment and peace, and with the spirit of benevolence; all shall say with united voice; Blessed is He; and the name of the Lord of spirits shall be blessed for ever and for ever;  GHS  RHC 
61:12  all, who sleep not, shall bless it in heaven above. 60:15All the holy in heaven shall bless it; all the elect who dwell in the garden of life; and every spirit of light, who is capable of blessing, glorifying, exalting, and praising your holy name; and every mortal man, more than the powers of heaven, shall glorify and bless your name for ever and ever.  GHS  RHC 
61:13  60:16For great is the mercy of the Lord of spirits; long-suffering is he; and all his works, all his power, great as are the things which he has done, has he revealed to the saints and to the elect, in the name of the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 62        
62:1  61:1Thus the Lord commanded the kings, the princes, the exalted, and those who dwell on earth, saying, Open your eyes, and lift up your horns, if you are capable of comprehending the Elect One.  GHS  RHC 
62:2  61:2The Lord of spirits sat upon the throne of his glory. 61:3And the spirit of righteousness was poured out over him. 61:4The word of his mouth shall destroy all the sinners and all the ungodly, who shall perish at his presence.  GHS  RHC 
62:3  61:5In that day shall all the kings, the princes, the exalted, and those who possess the earth, stand up, behold, and perceive, that he is sitting on the throne of his glory; that before him the saints shall be judged in righteousness; 61:6And that nothing, which shall be spoken before him, shall be spoken in vain.  GHS  RHC 
62:4  61:7Trouble shall come upon them, as upon a woman in travail, whose labour is severe, when her child comes to the mouth of the womb, and she finds it difficult to bring forth. 61:8One portion of them shall look upon another. They shall be astonished, and shall humble their countenance; 61:9And trouble shall seize them, when they shall behold this Son of woman sitting upon the throne of his glory.  GHS  RHC 
62:6  61:10Then shall the kings, the princes, and all who possess the earth, glorify him who has dominion over all things, him who was concealed;  GHS  RHC 
62:7  for from the beginning the Son of Man existed in secret, whom the Most High preserved in the presence of his power, and revealed to the elect.  GHS  RHC 
62:8  61:11He shall sow the congregation of the saints, and of the elect; and all the elect shall stand before him in that day.  GHS  RHC 
62:9  61:12All the kings, the princes, the exalted, and those who rule over all the earth, shall fall down on their faces before him, and shall worship him. 61:13They shall fix their hopes on this Son of Man, shall pray to him, and petition him for mercy.  GHS  RHC 
62:10  61:14Then shall the Lord of spirits hasten to expel them from his presence. Their faces shall be full of confusion, and their faces shall darkness cover.  GHS  RHC 
62:11  The angels shall take them to punishment, that vengeance may be inflicted on those who have oppressed his children and his elect.  GHS  RHC 
62:12  And they shall become an example to the saints and to his elect. Through them shall these be made joyful; for the anger of the Lord of spirits shall rest upon them. 61:15Then the sword of the Lord of spirits shall be drunk with their blood;  GHS  RHC 
62:13  but the saints and elect shall be safe in that day; nor the face of the sinners and the ungodly shall they thenceforwards behold.  GHS  RHC 
62:14  61:16The Lord of spirits shall remain over them: 61:17And with this Son of Man shall they dwell, eat, lie down, and rise up, for ever and ever.  GHS  RHC 
62:15  61:18The saints and the elect have arisen from the earth, have left off to depress their countenances, and have been clothed with the garment of life.  GHS  RHC 
62:16  That garment of life is with the Lord of spirits, in whose presence your garment shall not wax old, nor shall your glory diminish.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 63        
63:1  62:1In those days the kings who possess the earth shall be punished by the angels of his wrath, wheresoever they shall be delivered up, that he may give rest for a short period; and that they may fall  GHS  RHC 
63:2  down and worship before the Lord of spirits, confessing their sins before him. 62:2They shall bless and glorify the Lord of spirits, saying, Blessed is the Lord of spirits, the Lord of kings, the Lord of princes, the Lord of the rich, the Lord of glory, and the Lord of wisdom.  GHS  RHC 
63:3  62:3He shall enlighten every secret thing. 62:4Your power is from generation to generation; and your glory for ever and ever. 62:5Deep are all your secrets, and numberless; and your righteousness cannot be calculated.  GHS  RHC 
63:4  62:6Now we know, that we should glorify and bless the Lord of kings, him who is King over all things.  GHS  RHC 
63:5  62:7They shall also say, Who has granted us rest to glorify, laud, bless, and confess in the presence of his glory?  GHS  RHC 
63:6  62:8And now small is the rest we desire; but we do not find it; we reject, and do not possess it. Light has passed away from before us; and darkness has covered our thrones for ever.  GHS  RHC 
63:7  62:9For we have not confessed before him; we have not glorified the name of the Lord of kings; we have not glorified the Lord in all his works; but we have trusted in the sceptre of our dominion and of our glory.  GHS  RHC 
63:8  62:10In the day of our suffering and of our trouble he will not save us, neither shall we find rest. We confess that our Lord is faithful in all his works, in all his judgments, and in his righteousness. 62:11In his judgments he pays no respect to persons; and we must depart from his presence, on account of our evil deeds. 62:12All our sins are truly without number.  GHS  RHC 
63:10  62:13Then shall they say to themselves, Our souls are satiated with the instruments of crime; 62:14But that prevents us not from descending to the flaming womb of hell.  GHS  RHC 
63:11  62:15Afterwards, their countenances shall be filled with darkness and confusion before the Son of Man; from whose presence they shall be expelled, and before whom the sword shall remain to expel them.  GHS  RHC 
63:12  62:16Thus saith the Lord of spirits, This is the decree and the judgment against the princes, the kings, the exalted, and those who possess the earth, in the presence of the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 64        
64:1  63:1I saw also other countenances in that secret place. I heard the voice of an angel, saying, These are the angels who have descended from heaven to earth, and have revealed secrets to the sons of men, and have seduced the sons of men to the commission of sin.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 65        
65:1  64:1In those days Noah saw that the earth became inclined, and that destruction approached. 64:2Then he lifted up his feet, and went to the ends of the earth, to the dwelling of his great-grandfather Enoch.  GHS  RHC 
65:3  64:3And Noah cried with a bitter voice, Hear me; hear me; hear me: three times. And he said, Tell me what is transacting upon the earth; for the earth labours,  GHS  RHC 
65:4  and is violently shaken. Surely I shall perish with it. 64:4After this there was a great perturbation on earth, and a voice was heard from heaven. I fell down on my face, when my great-grandfather Enoch came and stood by me. 64:5He said to me, Why have you cried out to me with a bitter cry and lamentation?  GHS  RHC 
65:6  64:6A commandment has gone forth from the Lord against those who dwell on the earth, that they may be destroyed; for they know every secret of the angels, every oppressive and secret power of the devils, and every power of those who commit sorcery, as well as of those who make molten images  GHS  RHC 
65:7  in the whole earth. 64:7They know how silver is produced from the dust of the earth, and how on the earth the metallic drop exists;  GHS  RHC 
65:8  for lead and tin are not produced from earth, as the primary fountain  GHS  RHC 
65:9  of their production. 64:9Afterwards my great-grandfather Enoch seized me with his hand, raising me up, and saying to me, Go, for I have  GHS  RHC 
65:10  asked the Lord of spirits respecting this perturbation of the earth; who replied, On account of their impiety have their innumerable judgments been consummated before me. Respecting the moons have they inquired, and they have known that the earth  GHS  RHC 
65:11  will perish with those who dwell upon it, and that to these there will be no place of refuge for ever. 64:10They have discovered secrets, and they are those who have been judged; but not you my son. The Lord of spirits knows that you are pure and good, free from the reproach of discovering secrets.  GHS  RHC 
65:12  64:11He, the holy One, will establish your name in the midst of the saints, and will preserve you from those who dwell upon the earth. He will establish your seed in righteousness, with dominion and great glory; and from your seed shall spring forth righteousness and holy men without number for ever.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 66        
66:1  65:1After this he showed me the angels of punishment, who were prepared to come, and to open all the mighty waters under the earth: 65:2That they may be for judgment, and for the destruction  GHS  RHC 
66:2  of all those who remain and dwell upon the earth. 65:3And the Lord of spirits commanded the angels who went forth, not to take up the men and  GHS  RHC 
66:3  preserve them. 65:4For those angels presiding over all the mighty waters. Then I went out from the presence of Enoch.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 67        
67:1  66:1In those days the word of God came to me, and said, Noah, behold, your lot has ascended  GHS  RHC 
67:2  up to me, a lot void of crime, a lot beloved and upright. 66:2Now then shall the angels labour at the trees; but when they proceed to this, I will put my hand upon it, and preserve it. 66:3The seed of life shall arise from it, and a change shall take place, that the  GHS  RHC 
67:3  dry land shall not be left empty. I will establish your seed before me for ever and ever, and the seed of those who dwell with you on the surface of the earth. It shall be blessed and multiplied in the presence of the earth, in the name of the Lord.  GHS  RHC 
67:4  66:4And they shall confine those angels who disclosed impiety. In that burning valley it is, that they shall be confined, which at first my great-grandfather Enoch showed me in the west, where there were mountains of gold  GHS  RHC 
67:5  and silver, of iron, of fluid metal, and of tin. 66:5I beheld that valley in which there was great  GHS  RHC 
67:6  perturbation, and where the waters were troubled. 66:6And when all this was effected, from the fluid mass of fire, and the perturbation which prevailed in that place, there arose a strong smell of sulphur, which became mixed with the waters; and the valley of the angels, who had been guilty of seduction, burned  GHS  RHC 
67:7  underneath its soil. 66:7Through that valley also rivers of fire were flowing, to which those angels shall be condemned, who seduced the inhabitants of the earth.  GHS  RHC 
67:8  66:8And in those days shall these waters be to kings, to princes, to the exalted, and to the inhabitants of the earth, for the healing of the soul and body, and for the judgment of the spirit. 66:9Their spirits shall be full of revelry, that they may be judged in their bodies; because they have denied the Lord of spirits,  GHS  RHC 
67:9  and although they perceive their condemnation day by day, they believe not in his name. 66:10And as the inflammation of their bodies shall be great, so shall their spirits undergo a change for ever.  GHS  RHC 
67:10  66:11For no word which is uttered before the Lord of spirits shall be in vain. 66:12Judgment has come upon them,  GHS  RHC 
67:11  because they trusted in their carnal revelry, and denied the Lord of spirits. 66:13In those days shall the waters of that valley be changed; for when the angels shall be judged, then shall the heat of those springs of water experience an alteration. 66:14And when the angels shall ascend, the water of the  GHS  RHC 
67:12  springs shall again undergo a change, and be frozen. Then I heard holy Michael answering and saying, This judgment, with which the angels shall be judged, shall bear testimony against the kings, the princes, and those who possess the  GHS  RHC 
67:13  earth. 66:15For these waters of judgment shall be for their healing, and for the death of their bodies. But they shall not perceive and believe that the waters will be changed, and become a fire, which shall blaze for ever.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 68        
68:1  67:1After this he gave me the characteristical marks of all the secret things in the book of my great-grandfather Enoch, and in the parables which had been given to him; inserting them for me among the words of the book  GHS  RHC 
68:2  of parables. 67:2At that that time holy Michael answered and said to Raphael, The power of the spirit hurries me away, and impels me on. The severity of the judgment, of the secret judgment of the angels, who is capable of beholdingūthe endurance of that severe judgment which has taken place and been made permanentū  GHS  RHC 
68:3  without being melted at the site of it? Again holy Michael answered and said to holy Raphael, Who is there whose heart is not softened by it, and whose reins are not troubled at this thing? 67:3Judgment  GHS  RHC 
68:4  has gone forth against them by those who have thus dragged them away; and that was, when they stood in the presence of the Lord of spirits. 67:4In like manner also holy Rakael said to Raphael, They shall not be before the eye of the Lord; since the Lord of spirits has been offended with them; for  GHS  RHC 
68:5  like Lords have they conducted themselves. Therefore will he bring upon them a secret judgment for ever and ever. 67:5For neither shall angel nor man receive a portion of it; but they alone shall receive their own judgment for ever end ever.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 69        
69:1  68:1After this judgment they shall be astonished and irritated; for it shall be exhibited to the inhabitants of the earth.  GHS  RHC 
69:2  68:2Behold the names of those angels. These are their names. The first of them is Samyaza; the second, Arstikapha; the third, Armen; the fourth, Kakabael; the fifth, Turel; the sixth, Rumyel; the seventh, Danyal; the eighth, Kael; the ninth, Barakel; the tenth, Azazel; the eleventh, Armers; the twelfth, Bataryal; the thirteenth, Basasael; the fourteenth, Ananel; the fifteenth, Turyal; the sixteenth, Simapiseel; the seventeenth, Yetarel; the eighteenth, Tumael; the nineteenth, Tarel;  GHS  RHC 
69:3  the twentieth, Rumel; the twenty-first, Azazyel. 68:3These are the chiefs of their angels, and the names of the leaders of their hundreds, and the leaders of their fifties, and the leaders of their tens.  GHS  RHC 
69:4  68:4The name of the first is Yekun: he it was who seduced all the sons of the holy angels; and causing them to  GHS  RHC 
69:5  descend on earth, led astray the offspring of men. 68:5The name of the second is Kesabel, who pointed out evil counsel to the sons of the holy angels, and induced them to corrupt  GHS  RHC 
69:6  their bodies by generating mankind. 68:6The name of the third is Gadrel: he discovered every stroke of death to the children of men. 68:7He seduced Eve; and discovered to the children of men the instruments of death, the coat of mail, the shield, and the sword for slaughter; every instrument  GHS  RHC 
69:7  of death to the children of men. 68:8From his hand were these things derived to them who dwell  GHS  RHC 
69:8  upon earth, from that period for ever. 68:9The name of the fourth is Penemue: he discovered to the  GHS  RHC 
69:9  children of men bitterness and sweetness; 68:10And pointed out to them every secret of their wisdom. 68:11He taught men to understand writing, and the use of ink and paper. 68:12Therefore numerous have been those who have gone astray from every  GHS  RHC 
69:10  period of the world, even to this day. 68:13For men were not born for this, thus with pen and with ink to confirm  GHS  RHC 
69:11  their faith; 68:14Since they were not created, except that, like the angels, they might remain righteous and pure. 68:15Nor would death, which destroys everything, have effected them; 68:16But by this their knowledge they perish, and by this also its power  GHS  RHC 
69:12  consumes them. 68:17The name of the fifth is Kasyade: he discovered to the children of men every wicked stroke of spirits and of demons: 68:18The stroke of the embryo in the womb, to diminish it; the stroke of the spirit by the bite of the serpent, and the stroke  GHS  RHC 
69:13  which is given in the mid-day by the offspring of the serpent, the name of which is Tabaet. 68:19This is the number of the Kasbel; the principal part of the oath which the Most High,  GHS  RHC 
69:14  dwelling in glory, revealed to the holy ones. 68:20Its name is Beka. He spoke to holy Michael to discover to them the sacred name, that they might understand that secret name, and thus remember the oath; and that those who pointed out every secret thing to the children of men might tremble at that name and oath. 68:21This is the power of that oath; for powerful it is, and strong. 68:22And he established this oath of Akae by the instrumentality of the holy Michael.  GHS  RHC 
69:16  68:23These are the secrets of this oath, and by it were they confirmed. 68:24Heaven was suspended by it before the world was made, for ever.  GHS  RHC 
69:17  68:25By it has the earth been founded upon the flood; while from the concealed parts of the hills the agitated waters proceed forth from the creation to the end of the world.  GHS  RHC 
69:18  68:26By this oath the sea has been formed, and the foundation of it. 68:27During the period of its fury he established the sand against it, which continues unchanged for ever;  GHS  RHC 
69:19  and by this oath the abyss has been made strong; nor is it removable from its station for ever and ever.  GHS  RHC 
69:20  68:28By this oath the sun and moon complete their progress, never swerving from the command given to them for ever and ever.  GHS  RHC 
69:21  68:29By this oath the stars complete their progress; 68:30And when their names are called, they return an answer, for ever and ever.  GHS  RHC 
69:21  68:31Thus in the heavens take place the blowings of the winds: all of them have breathings, and effect  GHS  RHC 
69:23  a complete combination of breathings. 68:32There the treasures of thunder are kept, and the splendour of the lightning. 68:33There are kept the treasures of hail and of  GHS  RHC 
69:24  frost, the treasures of snow, the treasures of rain and of dew. 68:34All these confess and laud before the Lord of spirits. 68:35They glorify with all their power of praise; and he sustains them in all that act of thanksgiving; while they laud, glorify, and exalt the name of the Lord of spirits for ever and ever.  GHS  RHC 
69:25  68:36And with them he establishes this oath, by which they and their paths are preserved; nor does their progress perish.  GHS  RHC 
69:26  68:37Great was their joy. 68:38They blessed, glorified, and exalted, because the name of the Son of Man was revealed to them.  GHS  RHC 
69:27  68:39He sat upon the throne of his glory; and the principal part of the judgment was assigned to him, the Son of Man. Sinners shall disappear and perish from the face of the earth, while those who seduced them  GHS  RHC 
69:28  shall be bound with chains for ever. 68:40According to their ranks of corruption shall they be imprisoned, and all their works shall disappear from the face of the earth;  GHS  RHC 
69:29  nor thenceforward shall there be any to corrupt; for the Son of Man has been seen, sitting on the throne of his glory. 68:41Everything wicked shall disappear, and depart from before his face; and the word of the Son of Man shall become powerful in the presence of the Lord of spirits. 68:42This is the third parable of Enoch.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 70        
70:1  69:1After this the name of the Son of Man, living with the Lord of spirits, was exalted  GHS  RHC 
70:2  by the inhabitants of the earth. 69:2It was exalted  GHS  RHC 
70:3  in the chariots of the Spirit; and the name went forth in the midst of them. 69:3From that time I was not drawn into the midst of them; but he seated me between two spirits, between the north and the GHS  RHC 
70:4  west, where the angels received their ropes, to measure out a place for the elect and the righteous. 69:4There I beheld the fathers of the first men, and the saints, who dwell in that place for ever.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 71        
71:1  70:1Afterwards my spirit was concealed, ascending into the heavens. I beheld the sons of the holy angels treading on flaming fire, whose garments and robes were white, and whose countenances were transparent as crystal.  GHS  RHC 
71:2  70:2I saw two rivers of fire glittering like the hyacinth. 70:3Then I fell on my face before the Lord of spirits.  GHS  RHC 
71:3  70:4And Michael, one of the archangels, took me by my right hand, raised me up, and brought me out to where was every secret of mercy and secret of righteousness.  GHS  RHC 
71:4  70:5He showed me all the hidden things of the extremities of heaven, all the receptacles of the stars, and the splendours of all, from whence they went forth before the face of the holy.  GHS  RHC 
71:5  70:6And he concealed the spirit of Enoch in the heaven of heavens. 70:7There I beheld, in the midst of that light, a building raised with stones of ice; 70:8And in the midst of these stone vibrations of living fire.  GHS  RHC 
71:6  My spirit saw around the circle of this flaming habitation, on one of its extremities, that there were rivers full of living fire, which encompassed it.  GHS  RHC 
71:7  70:9Then the Seraphim, the Cherubim, and Ophanin surrounded it: these are those who never sleep, but watch the throne of his glory.  GHS  RHC 
71:8  70:10And I beheld angels innumerable, thousands of thousands, and myriads and myriads, who surrounded that habitation. 70:11Michael, Raphael, Gabriel, Phanuel and the holy angels who were in the heavens above, went in and out of it.  GHS  RHC 
71:9  Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel went out of that habitation, and holy angels innumerable.  GHS  RHC 
71:10  70:12With them was the Ancient of days, whose head was white as wool, and pure, and his robe was indescribable.  GHS  RHC 
71:11  70:13Then I fell upon my face, while all my flesh was dissolved, and my spirit became changed. 70:14I cried out with a loud voice, with a powerful spirit, blessing, glorifying, and exalting.  GHS  RHC 
71:12  70:15And those blessings, which proceeded from my mouth, became acceptable in the presence of the Ancient of days. 70:16The Ancient of days came with Michael and Gabriel, Raphael and Phanuel, with thousands of thousands, and myriads and myriads, which could not be numbered.  GHS  RHC 
71:13           {Top}
71:14  70:17Then that angel came to me, and with his voice saluted me, saying, You are the Son of Man, who art born for righteousness, and righteousness has rested upon you. 70:18The righteousness of the Ancient of days shall not forsake you.  GHS  RHC 
71:15  70:19He said, On you shall he confer peace in the name of the existing world; for from thence has peace gone forth since the world was created. 70:20And thus shall it happen to you for ever and ever.  GHS  RHC 
71:16  70:21All who shall exist, and who shall walk in your path of righteousness, shall not forsake you for ever. 70:22With you shall be their habitations, with you their lot; nor from you shall they be separated for ever and ever. 70:23And thus shall length of days be with the Son of Man. 70:24Peace shall be to the righteous; and the path of integrity shall the righteous pursue, in the name of the Lord of spirits, for ever and ever.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 72        
72:1  71:1The book of the revolutions of the luminaries of heaven, according to their respective classes, their respective powers, their respective periods, their respective names, the places where they commence their progress, and their respective months, which Uriel, the holy angel who was with me, explained to me; he who conducted them. The whole account of them, according to every year of the world for ever,  GHS  RHC 
72:2  until a new work shall be effected, which will be eternal. 71:2This is the first law of the luminaries. The sun and the light arrive at the gates of heaven, which are on the east,  GHS  RHC 
72:3  and on the west of it at the western gates of heaven. 71:3I beheld the gates whence the sun goes forth; and the gates where the sun sets; 71:4In which gates also the moon rises and sets; and I beheld the conductors of the stars, among those who precede them; six gates were at the rising, and six at the setting of the sun. 71:5All these respectively,  GHS  RHC 
72:4  one after another, are on a level; and numerous windows are on the right and on the left sides of those gates. 71:6First proceeds forth that great luminary, which is called the sun; the orb of which is as  GHS  RHC 
72:5  the orb of heaven, the whole of it being replete with splendid and flaming fire. 71:7Its chariot, where it ascends, the wind blows. 71:8The sun sets in heaven, and, returning by the north, to proceed towards the east, is conducted so as to enter by that gate, and  GHS  RHC 
72:6  illuminate the face of heaven. 71:9In the same manner it goes forth in the first month by the great gate.  GHS  RHC 
72:7  71:10It goes forth through the fourth of those six gates, which are at the rising of the sun. 71:11And in the fourth gate, through which the sun with the moon proceeds, in the first part of it, there are twelve open windows; from which issues out a flame, when they are opened in  GHS  RHC 
72:8  their proper periods. 71:12When the sun rises in heaven, it goes forth through this fourth gate thirty days,  GHS  RHC 
72:9  and by the fourth gate in the west of heaven on a level with it descends. 71:13During that period the day is lengthened from the day, and the night curtailed from the night for thirty  GHS  RHC 
72:10  days. And then the day is longer by two parts than the night. 71:14The day is precisely ten parts, and the night is eight. 71:15The sun goes forth through this fourth gate, and sets in it, and turns to the fifth gate during thirty days; after which it proceeds from, and sets in, the fifth  GHS  RHC 
72:12  gate. 71:16Then the day becomes lengthened by a second portion, so that it is eleven parts: while the night  GHS  RHC 
72:13  becomes shortened, and is only seven parts. 71:17The sun now returns to the east, entering into the sixth  GHS  RHC 
72:14  gate, and rising and setting in the sixth gate thirty-one days, on account of its signs. 71:18At that period the day is longer than the night, being twice as long as the night; and  GHS  RHC 
72:15  become twelve parts; 71:19But the night is shortened, and becomes six parts. Then the sun rises up, that the day may be shortened, and the night lengthened. 71:20And the sun returns toward the east entering into the  GHS  RHC 
72:16  sixth gate, where it rises and sets for thirty days. 71:21When that period is completed,  GHS  RHC 
72:17  the day becomes shortened precisely one part, so that it is eleven parts, while the night is seven parts. 71:22Then the sun goes from the west, from that sixth gate, and proceeds eastwards, rising in the fifth gate for  GHS  RHC 
72:18  thirty days, and setting again westwards in the fifth gate of the west. 71:23At that period the day becomes shortened two parts; and is ten parts, while the night is eight parts. 71:24Then the sun goes from the fifth gate, as it sets in the fifth gate of the west; and rises in the fourth gate for thirty-  GHS  RHC 
72:20  one days, on account of its signs, setting in the west. 71:25At that period the day is made equal with the night; and, being equal with it, the night becomes nine parts, and the day GHS  RHC 
72:21  nine parts. 71:26Then the sun goes from that gate, as it sets in the west; and returning to the east proceeds  GHS  RHC 
72:22  by the third gate for thirty days, setting in the west at the third gate. 71:27At that period the night is lengthened from the day during thirty mornings, and the day is curtailed from the day during thirty days; the night being ten parts precisely, and the day eight GHS  RHC 
72:23  parts. 71:28The sun now goes from the third gate, as it sets in the third gate in the west; but returning to the east, it proceeds by the second gate of the east for thirty days.  GHS  RHC 
72:24  71:29In like manner also it sets in the second gate in the west of heaven. 71:30At that period the night is eleven  GHS  RHC 
72:25  parts, and the day seven parts. 71:31Then the sun goes at that time from the second gate, as it sets in the second gate in the west; but returns to the east, proceeding by the first gate, for thirty-one  GHS  RHC 
72:26  days. 71:32And sets in the west in the first gate. 71:33At that period that night is lengthened as much again as the day. 71:34It is twelve parts precisely, while GHS  RHC 
72:27  the day is six parts. 71:35The sun has thus completed its beginnings, and a second time goes round from these beginnings. 71:36Into that first gate it enters for thirty days, and sets in the west,  GHS  RHC 
72:28  in the opposite part of heaven. 71:37At that period the night is contracted in its length a fourth part, that is, one portion,  GHS  RHC 
72:29  and becomes eleven parts. 71:38The day is seven parts. 71:39Then the sun returns, and enters into the second gate of the east. 71:40It returns by these beginnings thirty days, rising  GHS  RHC 
72:30  and setting. 71:41At that period the night is contracted in its length. It becomes ten parts,  GHS  RHC 
72:31  and the day eight parts. Then the sun goes from that second gate, and sets in the west; but returns to the east, and rises in the east, in the third gate, thirty-one days, setting in the west of heaven.  GHS  RHC 
72:32  71:42At that period the night becomes shortened. It is nine parts. And the night  GHS  RHC 
72:33  is equal with the day. The year is precisely three hundred and sixty-four days. 71:43The lengthening of the day and night, and the contraction of the day and night, are made to differ from each other by the progress  GHS  RHC 
72:34  of the sun. 71:44By means of this progress the day is GHS  RHC 
72:35  daily lengthened, and the night greatly shortened. 71:45This is the law and progress of the sun, and its turning when it turns back, turning during sixty days, and going forth. This is the great everlasting luminary, that which he names the sun for ever and ever. 71:46This also is that which goes forth a great luminary, and which is named after its  GHS  RHC 
72:37  peculiar kind, as God commanded. 71:47And thus it goes in and out, neither slackening nor resting; but running on in its chariot by day and by night. It shines with a seventh portion of light from the moon; but the dimensions of both are equal.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 73        
73:1  72:1After this law I beheld another law of an inferior luminary, the name of which is the moon, and the orb of which is as the orb of heaven. 72:2Its chariot, which it secretly ascends, the wind blows; and light is given to it by measure. 72:3Every month at its exit and entrance it becomes changed; and its periods are as the periods of the sun. And when in like manner its light is to exist, its light is a seventh portion from the light of the sun. 72:4Thus it rises, and at its commencement towards the east goes forth for thirty days. 72:5At that time it appears, and becomes to you the beginning of the month. Thirty days it is with the sun in the gate from which the sun goes forth. 72:6Half of it is in extent seven portions, one half; and the whole of its orb is void of light, except a seventh portion out of the GHS  RHC 
73:6  fourteen portions of its light. And in a day it receives a seventh portion, or half that portion, of its light. Its light GHS  RHC 
73:7  is by sevens, by one portion, and by the half of a portion. Its sets with the sun. 72:7And when the sun rises, the moon rises with it; receiving half a portion of light. 72:8On that night, when it commences its period, previously to the day of the month, the moon sets with the sun. 72:9And  GHS  RHC 
73:8  on that night it is dark in its fourteen portions, that is, in each half; but it rises on that day with one seventh portion precisely, and in its progress declines from the rising of the sun. 72:10During the remainder of its period its light increases to fourteen portions.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 74        
74:1  73:1Then I saw another progress and regulation which He effected in the law of the moon. The progress of the moons, and everything  GHS  RHC 
74:2  relating to them, Uriel showed me, the holy angel who conducted them all. 73:2Their stations I wrote down as he showed them to me. 73:3I wrote down their months,  GHS  RHC 
74:3  as they occur, and the appearance of their light, until it is completed in fifteen days. 73:4In each of its two seven portions it completes all its light at rising  GHS  RHC 
74:4  and at setting. 73:5On stated months it changes its settings; and on stated months it makes  GHS  RHC 
74:5  its progress through each gate. In two gates the moon sets with the sun, viz. in those two gates which are in the midst,  GHS  RHC 
74:6  in the third and fourth gate. From the third gate it goes forth for seven days, and makes its circuit. 73:6Again it returns to the gate whence the sun goes forth, and in that completes the whole of its light. Then it declines from the sun, and enters in eight  GHS  RHC 
74:7  days into the sixth gate, and returns in seven days to the third gate, from which the sun goes forth. 73:7When the sun proceeds to the fourth gate, the moon goes forth for seven days, until it passes from the fifth gate. 73:8Again it returns in seven days to the fourth gate, and completing all its light, declines, and passes on by the  GHS  RHC 
74:8  first gate in eight days; 73:9And returns in seven days to the fourth gate, from which the  GHS  RHC 
74:9  sun goes forth. 73:10Thus I beheld their stations, as according to the fixed order of the months the sun rises and sets. 73:11At those times there is an excess of thirty days belonging to the sun  GHS  RHC 
74:11  in five years; all the days belonging to each year of the five years, when completed, amount to three hundred and sixty-four days; and to the sun and stars belong six days; six days in each of the five years; thus thirty days belonging to them; 73:12So that the  GHS  RHC 
74:12  moon has thirty days less than the sun and stars. 73:13The moon brings on all the years exactly, that their stations may come neither too forwards nor too backwards a single day; but that the years may be changed with correct precision in three hundred and sixty-four days. In three years the days are one thousand and ninety-two; in five years they are one thousand eight hundred and twenty; and in eight years two thousand nine hundred and twelve days. 73:14To the moon alone belong in three years one thousand and sixty-two days; in five years it has fifty days less than the sun, for an addition being made to the one thousand and sixty-two days, in five years there are one thousand seven hundred and seventy days; and the days of the moon in eight years are two thousand eight hundred and thirty-two days. 73:15For its days in eight years are less than those of the sun by eighty days,  GHS  RHC 
74:17  which eighty days are its diminution in eight years. 73:16The year then becomes truly complete according to the station of the moon, and the station of the sun; which rise in the different gates; which rise and set in them for thirty days.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 75        
75:1  74:1These are the leaders of the chiefs of the thousands, those which preside over all creation, and over all the stars; with the four days which are added and never separated from the place allotted them, according to the complete calculation of the year. 74:2And these serve four days, which are not  GHS  RHC 
75:2  calculated in the calculation of the year. 74:3Respecting them, men greatly err, for these luminaries truly serve, in the dwelling place of the world, one day in the first gate, one in the third gate, one in the fourth gate, and one in the sixth gate. 74:4And the harmony of the world  GHS  RHC 
75:3  becomes complete every three hundred and sixty-fourth state of it. For the signs, 74:5The seasons, 74:7And the days, Uriel showed me; the angel whom the Lord of glory appointed over all the luminaries. 74:6The years, 74:8Of heaven in heaven, and in the world; that they might rule in the face of the sky, and appearing over the earth, become 74:9Conductors of the days and nights: the sun, the moon, the stars, and all the ministers of heaven, which make their circuit with all the chariots  GHS  RHC 
75:4  of heaven. 74:10Thus Uriel showed me twelve gates open for the circuit of the chariots of the sun in heaven, from which the rays of the sun shoot forth. 74:11From these proceed heat  GHS  RHC 
75:5  over the earth, when they are opened in their stated seasons. They are for the winds,  GHS  RHC 
75:6  and the spirit of the dew, when in their seasons they are opened; opened in heaven at its extremities. 74:12Twelve gates I beheld in heaven, at the extremities of the earth, through which the sun, moon, and stars,  GHS  RHC 
75:7  and all the works of heaven, proceed at their rising and setting. 74:13Many windows also are open on the right and on the left.] 74:14One window at a certain season grows extremely hot. So also are there gates from which the stars go forth as they are commanded,  GHS  RHC 
75:8  and in which they set according to their number. 74:15I saw likewise the chariots of heaven, running  GHS  RHC 
75:9  in the world above to those gates in which the stars turn, which never set. One of these is greater than all, which goes round the whole world.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 76        
76:1  75:1And at the extremities of the earth I beheld twelve gates open for all the winds, from  GHS  RHC 
76:2  which they proceed and blow over the earth. 75:2Three of them are open in the front of heaven, three in the west, three on the right side of heaven, and  GHS  RHC 
76:3  three on the left. The first three are those which are towards the east, three are towards the  GHS  RHC 
76:4  north, three behind those which are upon the left, towards the south, and three on the west. 75:3From four of them proceed winds of blessing, and of health; and from eight proceed winds of punishment; when they are sent to destroy the earth, and the heaven above it, all its inhabitants, and all which are in the waters, or on dry land.  GHS  RHC 
76:5  75:4The first of these winds proceeds from the gate termed the eastern, through the first gate on the east, which inclines southwards. From this goes forth destruction, drought, heat,  GHS  RHC 
76:6  and perdition. 75:5From the second gate, the middle one, proceeds equity. There issue from it rain, fruitfulness, health, and dew; and from the third gate northwards, proceed cold and drought.  GHS  RHC 
76:7  75:6After these proceed the south winds through three principal gates; through their first gate,  GHS  RHC 
76:8  which inclines eastwards, proceeds a hot wind. 75:7But from the middle gate  GHS  RHC 
76:9  proceed grateful odour, dew, rain, health, and life. 75:8From the third gate, which is westwards, proceed dew, rain, blight, and destruction.  GHS  RHC 
76:10  75:9After these are the winds to the north, which is called the sea. They proceed from three gates. The first gate is that which is on the east, inclining southwards; from this proceed dew, rain, blight, and destruction. From the middle direct gate proceed rain, dew, life, and health. And from the third gate, which is westwards, inclining towards the south, proceed mist, frost, snow, rain, dew, and blight.  GHS  RHC 
76:12  75:10After these in the fourth quarter are the winds to the west. From the first gate, inclining northwards, proceed dew, rain, frost, cold, snow, and chill; from the middle gate proceed rain, health, and blessing; 75:11And from the last gate, which is southwards, proceed drought, destruction, scorching, and perdition. 75:12The account of the twelve gates of the four quarters of heaven is ended. 75:13All their laws, all their infliction of punishment, and the health produced by them, have I explained to you, my son Mathusala. GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 77        
77:1  76:1The first wind is called the eastern, because it is the first. 76:2The second is called the south, because the Most High there descends, and frequently there  GHS  RHC 
77:2  descends he who is blessed for ever. 76:3The western wind has the name of diminution, because there all the luminaries of  GHS  RHC 
77:3  heaven are diminished, and descend. 76:4The fourth wind, which is named the north, is divided into three parts; one of which is for the habitation of man; another for seas of water, with valleys, woods, rivers, shady places, and snow; and the third part contains paradise.  GHS  RHC 
77:4  76:5Seven high mountains I beheld, higher than all the mountains of the earth, from which  GHS  RHC 
77:5  frost proceeds; while days, seasons, and years depart and pass away. 76:6Seven rivers I beheld upon earth, greater than all rivers, one of which takes its course from the west; into a great sea its water flows.  GHS  RHC 
77:6  76:7Two come from the north to the sea, their waters flowing into the Erythraean sea, on the  GHS  RHC 
77:7  east. And with respect to the remaining four, they take their course in the cavity of the north, two to their sea, the Erythraean sea, and two are poured into a great sea, where also it is said there  GHS  RHC 
77:8  is a desert. 76:8Seven great islands I saw in the sea and on the earth. Seven in the great sea.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 78        
78:1  77:1The names of the sun are these: one Aryares, the other Tomas. 77:2The moon has four names. The first is Asonya; the second, Ebla; the third, Benase; and the fourth,  GHS  RHC 
78:3  Erae. 77:3These are the two great luminaries, whose orbs are as the orbs of  GHS  RHC 
78:4  heaven; and the dimensions of both are equal. 77:4In the orb of the sun there is a seventh portion of light, which is added to it from the moon. By measure it is put in, until the seventh portion of the light of the sun is departed. They set, enter into the western gate, circuit by the north, and through the eastern gate go forth  GHS  RHC 
78:6  over the face of heaven. 77:5When the moon rises, it appears in heaven;  GHS  RHC 
78:7  and the half of a seventh portion of light is all which is in it. 77:6In fourteen days the whole of its light is completed. 77:7By three quintuples light is put into it, until in fifteen days its light is completed, according to the signs of the year; it has three quintuples. 77:8The moon has the half of a seventh  GHS  RHC 
78:8  portion. 77:9During its diminution on the first day its light decreases a fourteenth part; on the second day it decreases a thirteenth part; on the third day a twelfth part; on the fourth day an eleventh part; on the fifth day a tenth part; on the sixth day a ninth part; on the seventh day it decreases an eighth part; on the eighth day it decreases a seventh part; on the ninth day it decreases a sixth part; on the tenth day it decreases a fifth part; on the eleventh day it decreases a fourth part; on the twelfth day it decreases third part; on the thirteenth day it decreases a second part; on the  GHS  RHC 
78:9  fourteenth day it decreases a half of its seventh part; and on the fifteenth day the whole remainder of its light is consumed.  GHS  RHC 
78:10  77:10On stated months the moon has twenty-nine days. 77:11It also has a period of twenty-eight days. 77:12Uriel likewise showed me another regulation, when light is poured into the moon, how it is poured into it from the sun. 77:13All the time that the moon is in progress with its light, it is poured into it in the presence of the sun, until its light is in fourteen days completed in heaven.  GHS  RHC 
78:12  77:14And when it is wholly extinguished, its light is consumed in heaven; and on the first  GHS  RHC 
78:13  day it is called the new moon, for on that day light is received into it. 77:15It becomes precisely completed on the day that the sun descends into the west, while the moon ascends at night from the east. 77:16The moon then shines all the night, until the sun rises before it; when the moon disappears in turn before the sun. 77:17Where light comes to the moon, there again it decreases, until all its light is extinguished, and the days of the moon pass away. 77:18Then its orb remains solitary without light. 77:19During three months it effects in thirty days each month its period; and during three more months it effects it in twenty-nine days each. These are the times in which it effects its decrease in its first period, and in the first gate, namely, in one hundred and seventy-seven days. 77:20And at the time of its going forth during three months it appears thirty days each, and during three more months it appears twenty-nine days each. 77:21In the night it appears for each twenty days as the face of a man, and in the day as heaven; for it is nothing else except its light.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 79        
79:1  78:1And now, my son Mathusala, I have shown you everything; and the account of every ordinance of the stars of heaven is  GHS  RHC 
79:2  finished. 78:2He showed me every ordinance respecting these, which takes place at all times and in all seasons under every influence, in all years, at the arrival and under the rule of each, during every month  GHS  RHC 
79:3  and every week. He showed me also the decrease of the moon, which is effected in the  GHS  RHC 
79:4  sixth gate; for in that sixth gate is its light consumed. 78:3From this is the beginning of the month; and its decrease is effected in the sixth gate in its period, until a hundred and seventy-seven  GHS  RHC 
79:5  days are completed; according to the mode of calculation by weeks, twenty-five weeks and two days. 78:4Its period is less that that of the sun, according to the ordinance of the stars, by five days in one half year precisely.  GHS  RHC 
79:6  78:5When that their visible situation is completed. Such is the appearance and likeness of every luminary, which Uriel, the great angel who conducts them, showed to me.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 80        
80:1  79:1In those days Uriel answered and said to me, Behold, I have showed you all things, O Enoch; 79:2And all things have I revealed to you. You see the sun, the moon, and those which conduct the stars of heaven, which cause all their operations, seasons, and arrivals to return.  GHS  RHC 
80:2  79:3In the days of sinners the years shall be shortened. 79:4Their seed shall be backward in their prolific soil; and everything done on earth shall be subverted, and disappear in its season. The rain shall be restrained, and heaven shall stand still.  GHS  RHC 
80:3  79:5In those days the fruits of the earth shall be late, and not flourish in their season; and in their season the fruits of the trees shall be withholden.  GHS  RHC 
80:4  79:6The moon shall change its laws, and not be seen at its proper period.  GHS  RHC 
80:5  But in those days shall heaven be seen; and barrenness shall take place in the borders of the great chariots in the west. Heaven shall shine more than when illuminated by the orders of light;  GHS  RHC 
80:6  while many chiefs among the stars of authority shall err, perverting their ways and works. 79:7Those shall not appear in their season, who commanded them,  GHS  RHC 
80:7  and all the classes of the stars shall be shut up against sinners. 79:8The thoughts of those who dwell on the earth shall transgress within them; and they shall be perverted in all their ways. 79:9They shall transgress, and think themselves gods;  GHS  RHC 
80:8  while evil shall be multiplied among them. 79:10And punishment shall come upon them, so that all of them shall be destroyed.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 81        
81:1  80:1He said, O Enoch, look on the book which heaven has gradually dropped down; and, reading that which is written in it, understand every part of it.  GHS  RHC 
81:2  80:2Then I looked on all which was written, and understood all, reading the book and everything written in it, all the works of man; 80:3And of all the children of flesh  GHS  RHC 
81:3  upon earth, during the generations of the world. 80:4Immediately after I blessed the Lord, the King of glory, who has thus for ever formed the whole workmanship of the world. 80:5And I glorified the Lord, on account of his long-suffering and blessing towards the children of the world.  GHS  RHC 
81:4  80:6At that time I said, Blessed is the man, who shall die righteous and good, against whom no catalogue of crime has been written, and with whom iniquity is not found.  GHS  RHC 
81:5  80:7Then those three holy ones caused me to approach, and placed me on the earth, before the door of my house. 80:8And they said unto me, Explain everything to Mathusala your son; and inform all your children, that no  GHS  RHC 
81:6  flesh shall be justified before the Lord; for he is their Creator. 80:9During one year we shall leave you with your children, until you shalt again recover your strength, that you may instruct your family, write these things, and explain them to all your children. But in another year they shall take you from the midst of them,  GHS  RHC 
81:7  and your heart shall be strengthened; for the elect shall point out righteousness to the elect; the righteous with the righteous shall rejoice, congratulating each other;  GHS  RHC 
81:8  but the sinners with sinners shall die, 80:10And the perverted with the perverted shall be drowned.  GHS  RHC 
81:9  80:11Those likewise who act righteously shall die on account of the works of man, and shall be gathered together on account of the works of the wicked.  GHS  RHC 
81:10  80:12In those days they finished conversing with me. 80:13And I returned to my fellow men, blessing the Lord of worlds.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 82        
82:1  81:1Now, my son Mathusala, all these things I speak unto you, and write for you. To you I have revealed all, and have given you books of everything. 81:2Preserve, my son Mathusala, the books written by your father; that you may reveal them to future generations.  GHS  RHC 
82:2  81:3Wisdom have I given you, to your children, and your posterity, that they may reveal to their children, for generations for ever, this wisdom in their thoughts;  GHS  RHC 
82:3  and that those who comprehend it may not slumber, but hear with their ears; that they may learn this wisdom, and be deemed worthy of eating this wholesome food.  GHS  RHC 
82:4  81:4Blessed are all the righteous; blessed are all who walk in righteousness; in whom no crime is found, as in sinners, when all their days are numbered. 81:5With respect to the progress of the sun in heaven, it enters and goes out of each gate for thirty days, with the leaders of the thousand classes of the stars; with four which are added, and appertain to the four quarters of the year, which conduct them,  GHS  RHC 
82:5  and accompany them at four periods. 81:6Respecting these, men greatly err, and do not calculate them in the calculation of every age; for they greatly err respecting them; nor do men know  GHS  RHC 
82:6  accurately that they are in the calculation of the year. But indeed these are marked down for ever; one in the first gate, one in the third, one in the fourth, and one in the sixth: 81:7So that the year is completed in three hundred and sixty-four days.  GHS  RHC 
82:7  81:8Truly has been stated, and accurately has been calculated that which is marked down; for the luminaries, the months, the fixed periods, the years, and the days, Uriel has explained to me, and communicated to me; whom the  GHS  RHC 
82:8  Lord of all creation, on my account, commanded (according to the might of heaven, and the power which it possesses both by night and by day) to explain the laws of light to man, of the sun, moon, and stars,  GHS  RHC 
82:9  and of all the powers of heaven, which are turned with their respective orbs. 81:9This is the ordinance of the stars, which set in their places, in their seasons, in their periods, in their days, and in their months.  GHS  RHC 
82:10  81:10These are the names of the those who conduct them, who watch and enter in their seasons, according to their ordinance in their periods, in their months, in the times of their influence, and in their stations. 81:11Four conductors of them first enter, who separate the four quarters of the year. After these, twelve conductors of their classes, who separate the months and the year into three hundred and sixty-four days, with the leaders of a thousand, who distinguish between the days, as well as between the four additional ones; which, as conductors, divide  GHS  RHC 
82:12  the four quarters of the year. 81:12These leaders of a thousand are in the midst of the conductors,  GHS  RHC 
82:13  and the conductors are added each behind his station, and their conductors make the separation. These are the names of the conductors, who separate the four quarters of the year, who are appointed over them: Melkel, Helammelak, 81:13Meliyal,  GHS  RHC 
82:14  and Narel. 81:14And the names of those who conduct them are Adnarel, Jyasusal, and Jyelumeal. 81:15These are the three who follow after the conductors of the classes of stars; each following after the three conductors of the classes, which themselves follow after those conductors of the stations, who divide the four quarters of the year. 81:16In the first part of the year rises and rules Melkyas, who is named Tamani, and Zahay.  GHS  RHC 
82:16  81:17All the days of his influence, during which he rules, are ninety-one days. 81:18And these are the signs of the days which are seen upon the earth. In the days of his influence there is perspiration, heat, and trouble. All the trees become fruitful; the leaf of every tree comes forth; the corn is reaped; the rose and every species of flowers blossoms in the field; and the trees of winter are dried up. 81:19These are the names of the conductors who are under them: Barkel, Zelsabel; and another additional conductor of a thousand is named Heloyalef, the days of those influence have been completed.  GHS  RHC 
82:18  The other conductor next after them is Helemmelek, whose name they call the splendid Zahay. 81:20All the days  GHS  RHC 
82:19  of his light are ninety-one days. 81:21These are the signs of the days upon earth, heat and drought; while the trees bring forth their fruits, warmed and concocted, and give their fruits to dry. 81:22The flocks follow and yean. All the fruits of the earth are collected, with everything  GHS  RHC 
82:20  in the fields, and the vines are trodden. This takes place during the time of his influence. 81:23These are their names and orders, and the names of the conductors who are under them, of those who are chiefs of a thousand: Gedaeyal, Keel, Heel. 81:24And the name of the additional leader of a thousand is Asphael. 81:25The days of his influence have been completed.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 83        
83:1  82:1And now I have shown you, my son Mathusala, every sight which I saw  GHS  RHC 
83:2  prior to your birth. I will relate another vision, which I saw before I was married; they resemble each other. 82:2The first was when I was learning a book; and the other before I was married to your mother. I saw a potent  GHS  RHC 
83:3  vision; 82:3And on account of these things besought the Lord. 82:4I was lying down in the house of my grandfather Malalel, when I saw in a vision heaven purifying, and snatched away. 82:5And falling to  GHS  RHC 
83:4  the earth, I saw likewise the earth absorbed by a great abyss; and mountains suspended over mountains. 82:6Hills were sinking upon hills, lofty trees were gliding off  GHS  RHC 
83:5  from their trunks, and were in the act of being projected, and of sinking into the abyss. I cried out  GHS  RHC 
83:6  and said, The earth is destroyed. Then my grandfather Malalel raised me up, and said to me: Why do you thus cry out, my son? And wherefore  GHS  RHC 
83:7  thus do you lament? 82:7Being alarmed at these things, my voice faltered. 82:8I related to him the whole vision which I had seen. He said to me, Confirmed is that which you have seen, my son; 82:9And potent the vision of your dream respecting every secret sin of the earth. Its substance shall sink into the abyss, and  GHS  RHC 
83:8  a great destruction take place. 82:10Now, my son, rise up; and beseech the Lord of glory (for you are faithful), that a remnant may be left upon earth, and that he would not wholly destroy it.  GHS  RHC 
83:9  My son, all this calamity upon earth comes down from heaven; upon earth shall there be a great  GHS  RHC 
83:10  destruction. 82:11Then I arose, prayed, and entreated; and wrote down my prayer for the generations of the world, explaining everything to my son Mathusala. 82:12When I went down below, and looking up to heaven, beheld the sun proceeding from the east, the moon descending to the west, a few scattered stars, and everything which God has known from the beginning, I blessed the Lord of judgment, and magnified him: because he hath sent forth the sun from the chambers of the east; that, ascending and rising in the face of heaven, it might spring up, and pursue the path which has been pointed out to it.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 84        
84:1  83:1I lifted up my hands in righteousness, and blessed the holy, and the Great One. I spoke with the breath of my mouth, and with a tongue of flesh, which God has formed for all the sons of mortal men, that with it they may speak; giving them breath, a mouth, and a tongue to converse with.  GHS  RHC 
84:2  83:2Blessed are you, O Lord, the King, great and powerful in your greatness, Lord of all the creatures of heaven, King of kings, God of the whole world, whose reign, whose kingdom, and whose majesty endure for ever and ever. 83:3From generation to generation shall your dominion exist. All the heavens are your throne for ever, and all the earth your footstool for ever and for ever.  GHS  RHC 
84:3  83:4For you have made them, and over all you reign. No act whatsoever exceeds your power. With your wisdom is unchangeable; nor from your throne and from your presence is it ever averted. You know all things, see and hear them; nor is anything concealed from you; for you perceive all things.  GHS  RHC 
84:4  83:5The angels of your heavens have transgressed; and on mortal flesh shall your wrath remain, until the day of the great judgment.  GHS  RHC 
84:5  83:6Now then, O God, Lord and mighty King, I entreat you, and beseech you to grant my prayer, that a posterity may be left to me on earth, and that the whole human race may not perish; 83:7That the earth may not be left destitute, and destruction take place for ever.  GHS  RHC 
84:6  83:8O my Lord, let the race perish from off the earth which has offended you, but a righteous and upright race establish for a posterity for ever. Hide not your face, O Lord, from the prayer of your servant.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 85        
85:1  84:1After this I saw another dream, and explained it all to you, my son. Enoch arose and said to his son Mathusala, To you, my son, will I speak. Hear my word; and incline your ear to the visionary dream of your father. Before I married your mother Edna, I saw a vision on my bed; 84:2And behold, a cow sprung forth from the earth; 84:3And this cow was white. 84:4Afterwards a female heifer sprung forth; and with it another heifer: one of them was black, and  GHS  RHC 
85:4  one was red. 84:5The black heifer then struck the red one, and pursued it over the earth. 84:6From that period  GHS  RHC 
85:5  I could see nothing more of the red heifer; but the black one increased in bulk, and a female heifer came with him. 84:7After this  GHS  RHC 
85:6  I saw that many cows proceeded forth, resembling him, and following after him. 84:8The first female young one also went out in the presence of the first cow; and sought the red heifer, but found him  GHS  RHC 
85:7  not. 84:9And she lamented with a great lamentation, while she was seeking him. 84:10Then I looked until that first  GHS  RHC 
85:8  cow came to her, from which time she became silent, and ceased to lament. 84:11Afterwards she calved another white cow. 84:12And again calved many cows and black heifers.  GHS  RHC 
85:9  84:13In my sleep also I perceived a white bull, which in like manner grew, and became a large white bull. 84:14After him many white cows came forth, resembling him. 84:15And they began to calve many other white cows, which resembled them and followed each other.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 86        
86:1  85:1Again I looked attentively, while sleeping, and surveyed heaven above. 85:2And behold a single star fell  GHS  RHC 
86:2  from heaven. 85:3Which being raised up, ate and fed among those cows. 85:4After that I perceived other large and black cows; and behold all of them changed their stalls and pastures, while their young began to  GHS  RHC 
86:3  lament one with another. Again I looked in my vision, and surveyed heaven; when behold I saw many stars which descended, and projected themselves from heaven to where the first star was,  GHS  RHC 
86:4  85:5Into the midst of those young ones; while the cows were with them, feeding in the midst of them. 85:6I looked at and observed them; when behold, they all acted after the manner of horses, and began to approach the young cows,  GHS  RHC 
86:5  all of whom became pregnant, and brought forth elephants, camels, and asses. 85:7At these all the cows were alarmed and terrified; when they began biting with their teeth, swallowing, and striking with their  GHS  RHC 
86:6  horns. 85:8They began also to devour the cows; and behold all the children of the earth trembled, shook with terror at them, and suddenly fled away.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 87        
87:1  86:1Again I perceived them, when they began to strike and to swallow each other; and the earth  GHS  RHC 
87:2  cried out. Then I raised my eyes a second time towards heaven, and saw in a vision, that, behold, there came forth from heaven as it were the likeness of white men. One came forth from thence,  GHS  RHC 
87:3  and three with him. 86:2Those three, who came forth last, seized me by my hand; and raising me up from the generations of the earth, elevated me to a high station. 86:3Then they showed me a  GHS  RHC 
87:4  lofty tower on the earth, while every hill became diminished. And they said, Remain here, until you perceive what shall come upon those elephants, camels, and asses, upon the stars, and upon all the cows.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 88        
88:1  87:1Then I looked at that one of the four white men, who came forth first. 87:2He seized the first star which fell down from heaven. 87:3And, binding it hand and foot, he cast it into a valley; a valley  GHS  RHC 
88:2  narrow, deep, stupendous, and gloomy. 87:4Then one of them drew his sword, and gave it to the elephants, camels, and asses, who began to strike each other. And the whole earth shook  GHS  RHC 
88:3  on account of them. 87:5And when I looked in the vision, behold, one of those four angels, who came forth, hurled from heaven, collected together, and took all the great stars, whose form partly resembles that of horses; and binding them all hand and foot, cast them into the cavities of the earth.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 89        
89:1  88:1Then one of those four went to the white cows, and taught them a mystery. While the cow was trembling, it was born, and became a man, and fabricated for himself a large ship. In this he dwelt,  GHS  RHC 
89:2  and three cows dwelt with him in that ship, which covered them. 88:2Again I lifted up my eyes towards heaven, and saw a lofty roof. Above it were seven cataracts,  GHS  RHC 
89:3  which poured fourth on a certain village much water. 88:3Again I looked, and behold there were fountains open on the earth in that large village. 88:4The water began to boil up, and rose over the earth;  GHS  RHC 
89:4  so that the village was not seen, while its whole soil was covered with water. 88:5Much water was over it, darkness, and clouds. Then I surveyed the height of this water; and it was elevated above the village. 88:6It flowed over the village, and stood higher than the earth.  GHS  RHC 
89:5  88:7Then all the cows which were collected there, while I looked on them, were drowned,  GHS  RHC 
89:6  swallowed up, and destroyed in the water. 88:8But the ship floated above it. All the cows, the elephants, the camels, and the asses, were drowned on the earth, and all cattle. Nor could I perceive them. Neither were they able to get out, but perished, and sunk into the deep. 88:9Again I looked in the vision until those cataracts from that lofty roof were removed, and the fountains  GHS  RHC 
89:8  of the earth became equalized, while other depths were opened; 88:10Into which the water began to descend, until the dry ground appeared. 88:11The ship remained on the earth; the darkness  GHS  RHC 
89:9  receded; and it became light. 88:12Then the white cow, which became a man, went out of the ship, and the three cows with him. 88:13One of the three cows was white, resembling that cow; one of them was red as blood; and one of them was black. And the white cow left them.  GHS  RHC 
89:10  88:14Then began wild beasts and birds to bring forth. 88:15Of all these the different kinds assembled together, lions, tigers, wolves, dogs, wild boars, foxes, rabbits, and the hanzar. 88:16The siset, the avest, kites, the phonkas, and ravens. 88:17Then the white cow was born in the midst of them. 88:18And they began to bite each other; when the white cow, which was born in the midst of them, brought forth a wild ass and a white cow at the same time, and after that  GHS  RHC 
89:12  many wild asses. Then the white cow, which was born, brought forth a black wild sow and a white  GHS  RHC 
89:13  sheep. 88:19That wild sow also brought forth many swine. 88:20And that sheep brought forth twelve sheep. 88:21When those twelve sheep grew up, they delivered one of them to the asses. 88:22Again those asses delivered that sheep to the wolves, 88:23And he grew up in the midst of them. 88:24Then the Lord brought the eleven other sheep, that they might dwell and feed with him in the midst of the wolves. 88:25They multiplied, and there was abundance of pasture for them. 88:26But the wolves began to frighten and oppress them, while they destroyed their young ones. 88:27And they left their young in torrents of deep water. 88:28Now the sheep began to GHS  RHC 
89:16  cry out on account of their young, and fled for refuge to their Lord. One however, which was saved, escaped, and went away to the wild asses. 88:29I beheld the sheep moaning, crying, and petitioning their Lord. 88:30With all their might, until the Lord of the sheep descended at their voice from his lofty habitation; went to them; and inspected them. 88:31He called to that sheep which had secretly stolen away from the wolves, and told him to make the wolves  GHS  RHC 
89:18  understand that they were not to touch the sheep. 88:32Then that sheep went to the wolves with the word of the Lord, when another met him, and proceeded with him. 88:33Both of them together entered the dwelling of the wolves; and conversing with them made them understand, that thenceforwards they were not to touch the  GHS  RHC 
89:19  sheep. 88:34Afterwards I perceived the wolves greatly prevailing over the sheep  GHS  RHC 
89:20  with their whole force. The sheep cried out; and their Lord came to them. 88:35He began to strike the wolves, who commenced a grievous lamentation; but the sheep were  GHS  RHC 
89:21  silent, nor from that time did they cry out. 88:36I then looked at them, until they departed from the wolves. The eyes of the wolves were blind, who went out and followed them  GHS  RHC 
89:22  with all their might. But the Lord of the sheep proceeded with them, and conducted them. 88:37All his sheep  GHS  RHC 
89:23  followed him. 88:38His countenance was terrific and splendid, and glorious was his aspect. Yet the wolves  GHS  RHC 
89:24  began to follow the sheep, until they overtook them in a certain lake of water. 88:39Then that lake became divided; the water standing up on both sides before their face. 88:40And while their Lord was conducting them, he placed himself between  GHS  RHC 
89:25  them and the wolves. 88:41The wolves however perceived not the sheep, but went into the midst of the lake, following them, and running after them into the lake of water.  GHS  RHC 
89:26  88:42But when they saw the Lord of the sheep, they turned to fly from before his face. 88:43Then the water of the lake returned, and that suddenly, according to its nature. It became full, and was raised up, until it covered  GHS  RHC 
89:27  the wolves. And I saw that all of them which had followed the sheep perished, and were drowned.  GHS  RHC 
89:28  88:44But the sheep passed over this water, proceeding to a wilderness, which was without both water and grass. And they began to open their eyes and to see. 88:45Then I beheld the Lord of the sheep  GHS  RHC 
89:29  inspecting them, and giving them water and grass. 88:46The sheep already mentioned was proceeding with them, and conducting them. 88:47And when  GHS  RHC 
89:30  he had ascended the top of the lofty rock, the Lord of the sheep sent him to them. 88:48Afterwards I perceived their Lord standing before them, with an aspect  GHS  RHC 
89:31  terrific and severe. 88:49And when they all beheld him, they were frightened at his countenance. 88:50All of them were alarmed, and trembled. They cried out after that sheep; and to the other sheep who had been with him, and who was in the midst of GHS  RHC 
89:32  them, saying, We are not able to stand before our Lord, or to look upon him. 88:51Then that sheep who conducted them went away, and ascended the top of the rock; 88:52When the rest of the sheep began to grow blind, and to wander  GHS  RHC 
89:33  from the path which he had shown them; but he knew it not. 88:53Their Lord however was moved with great indignation against them; and when that sheep had learned what had happened, 88:54He descended from the top of the rock, and coming to them, found that there were many, 88:55Which had become blind; 88:56And had wandered  GHS  RHC 
89:34  from his path. As soon as they beheld him, they feared, and trembled at his presence; 88:57And became desirous of returning to their  GHS  RHC 
89:35  fold, 88:58Then that sheep, taking with him other sheep, went to those which had wandered. 88:59And afterwards began to kill them. They were terrified at his countenance. Then he caused those which had wandered to return;  GHS  RHC 
89:36  who went back to their fold. 88:60I likewise saw there in the vision, that this sheep became a man, built a house for the Lord of the sheep, and made them all stand in the house.  GHS  RHC 
89:37  88:61I perceived also that the sheep which proceeded to meet this sheep, their conductor, died. I saw, too, that all the great sheep perished, while smaller ones rose up in their place, entered into a pasture, and GHS  RHC 
89:38  approached a river of water. 88:62Then that sheep, their conductor, who became a man, was separated  GHS  RHC 
89:39  from them, and died. 88:63All the sheep sought after him, and cried for him with bitter lamentation. 88:64I saw likewise that they ceased to cry after that sheep, and passed over the river of water. 88:65And that there arose other sheep, all of whom conducted them, instead of those who were dead, and who had previously conducted  GHS  RHC 
89:40  them. 88:66Then I saw that the sheep entered into a goodly place, and a territory delectable and glorious. 88:67I saw also that they became satiated; that their house was in the midst of a delectable territory;  GHS  RHC 
89:41  and that sometimes their eyes were opened, and that sometimes they were blind; until another sheep arose and conducted them. He brought them all back; and their eyes were opened.  GHS  RHC 
89:42  88:68Then dogs, foxes, and wild boars began to devour them, until again another sheep arose, the master of the flock, one of themselves, a ram,  GHS  RHC 
89:43  to conduct them. This ram began to butt on every side those dogs, foxes, and wild  GHS  RHC 
89:44  boars, until they all perished. 88:69his eyes, and saw the ram in the midst of them, who had laid aside his glory. 88:70And he began to strike the sheep, treading upon them, and behaving himself  GHS  RHC 
89:45  without dignity. 88:71Then their Lord sent the former sheep again to a still different sheep, and raised him up to be a ram, and to conduct them instead of that  GHS  RHC 
89:46  sheep who had laid aside his glory. 88:72Going therefore to him, and conversing with him alone, he raised up that ram, and made him a prince and leader of the flock. All the time that the dogs  GHS  RHC 
89:47  troubled the sheep, 88:73The first ram paid respect to this latter ram. 88:74Then the latter ram arose, and fled away from before his face. And I saw that those dogs caused  GHS  RHC 
89:48  the first ram to fall. 88:75But the latter ram arose,  GHS  RHC 
89:49  and conducted the smaller sheep. 88:78And the sheep increased in size, and multiplied. 88:79And all the dogs, foxes, and wild boars feared, and fled away from him. 88:80That ram also struck and killed all the wild beasts, so that they could not again prevail in the midst of the sheep, nor at any time ever snatch them away. 88:76That ram likewise begat many sheep, and died. 88:77Then there was a smaller sheep, a ram, instead of him, which became a prince and leader, conducting the flock.  GHS  RHC 
89:50  88:81And that house was made large and wide; a lofty tower being built upon it by the sheep, for the Lord of the sheep. 88:82The house was low, but the tower was elevated and very high. 88:83Then the Lord of the sheep stood upon that tower, and caused a full table to approach before him.  GHS  RHC 
89:51  88:84Again I saw that those sheep wandered, and went various ways, forsaking that their house; 88:85And that their Lord called to some among them, whom he sent to them.  GHS  RHC 
89:52  88:86But these the sheep began to kill. And when one of them was saved from slaughter he leaped, and cried out against those who were desirous of killing him. 88:87But the Lord of the sheep delivered him from  GHS  RHC 
89:53  their hands, and made him ascend to him, and remain with him. 88:88He sent also many others to them, to testify, and with lamentations to exclaim against them. 88:89Again I saw, when some of them forsook the house of their Lord, and his tower; wandering on all sides, and growing blind, 88:90I saw that the Lord of the sheep made a great slaughter among them in their pasture, until  GHS  RHC 
89:55  they cried out to him in consequence of that slaughter. Then he departed from the place of his habitation, and left them in the power of lions, tigers, wolves, and the zeebt, and in the power of foxes, and of every  GHS  RHC 
89:56  beast. 88:91And the wild beasts began to tear them. 88:92I saw, too, that he forsook the house of their fathers, and their tower; giving them all into the power of lions to tear and devour them;  GHS  RHC 
89:57  into the power of every beast. 88:93Then I began to cry out with all my might, imploring the Lord of the sheep, and showing him how the sheep were devoured  GHS  RHC 
89:58  by all the beasts of prey. 88:94But he looked on in silence, rejoicing that they were devoured, swallowed up, and carried off; and leaving them in the power of every beast for food.  GHS  RHC 
89:59  He called also seventy shepherds, and resigned to them the care of the sheep, that they might overlook them; 88:95Saying to them and to their associates, Every one of you henceforwards overlook the sheep, and  GHS  RHC 
89:60  whatsoever I command you, do; and I will deliver them to you numbered. 88:96I will tell you which of them shall be slain; these destroy. And  GHS  RHC 
89:61  he delivered the sheep to them. 88:97Then he called to another, and said, Understand, and watch everything which the shepherds shall do to these sheep; for many more of them shall perish than  GHS  RHC 
89:62  I have commanded. 88:98Of every excess and slaughter, which the shepherds shall commit, there shall be an account; as, how many may have perished by my command, and how many they may have destroyed of their own heads. 88:99Of all the destruction brought about by each of the shepherds there shall be an account;  GHS  RHC 
89:63  and according to the number I will cause a recital to be made before me, how many they have destroyed of their own heads, and how many they have delivered up to destruction, that I may have this testimony against them; that I may know all their proceedings; and that, delivering the sheep to them, I may see what they will do; whether they will act as I have  GHS  RHC 
89:64  commanded them, or not. 88:100Of this, however, they shall be ignorant; neither shall you make any explanation to them, neither shall you reprove them; but there shall be an account of all the destruction done  GHS  RHC 
89:65  by them in their respective seasons. Then they began to kill, and destroy more than it was commanded them. 88:101And they left  GHS  RHC 
89:66  the sheep in the power of the lions, so that very many of them were devoured and swallowed up by lions and tigers; and wild boars preyed upon them. That tower they burnt, and overthrew  GHS  RHC 
89:67  that house. 88:102Then I grieved extremely on account of the tower, and because the house of the sheep was overthrown. 88:103Neither was I afterwards able to perceive whether they again entered that house.  GHS  RHC 
89:68  88:104The shepherds likewise, and their associates, delivered them to all the wild beasts, that they might devour them. Each of them in his season, according to his number, was delivered up; each of them, one with another,  GHS  RHC 
89:69  was described in a book, how many of them, one with another, were destroyed, in a book.  GHS  RHC 
89:70  88:105More, however, than was ordered, every shepherd killed and destroyed. 88:106Then I began to weep, and was greatly indignant, on account of the sheep. 88:107In like manner also I saw in the vision him who wrote, how he wrote down one, destroyed by the shepherds, every day. He ascended, remained, and exhibited each of his books to the Lord of the sheep, containing all which they had done, and all which each of them had made  GHS  RHC 
89:71  away with; 88:108And all which they had delivered up to destruction. 88:109He took the book up in his hands, read it, sealed it, and deposited it.  GHS  RHC 
89:72  88:110After this, I saw shepherds overlooking for twelve hours. 88:111And behold three of the sheep departed, arrived, went in; and began building all which was fallen down of that GHS  RHC 
89:73  house. 88:112But the wild boars hindered them, although they prevailed not. 88:113Again they began to build as before, and raised up that tower, which was called a lofty tower. 88:114And again they began to place before the tower a table, with every impure and unclean kind of bread upon it.  GHS  RHC 
89:74  88:115Moreover also all the sheep were blind, and could not see, as were the shepherds likewise. 88:116Thus were they delivered up to the shepherds for a great GHS  RHC 
89:75  destruction, who trod them under foot, and devoured them. 88:117Yet was their Lord silent, until all the sheep in the field were destroyed. The shepherds and the sheep were all mixed together;  GHS  RHC 
89:76  but they did not save them from the power of the beasts. 88:118Then he who wrote the book ascended, exhibited it, and read it at the residence of the Lord of the sheep. He petitioned him for them, and prayed, pointing out every act  GHS  RHC 
89:77  of the shepherds, and testifying before him against them all. Then taking the book, he deposited it with him, and departed.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 90        
90:1  89:1And I observed during the time, that thus thirty-seven shepherds were overlooking, all of whom finished in their respective periods as the first. Others then received them into their GHS  RHC 
90:2  hands, that they might overlook them in their respective periods, every shepherd in his own period. 89:2Afterwards I saw in the vision, that all the birds of heaven arrived; eagles, the avest, kites and ravens. The eagle instructed them all. 89:3They began to devour the sheep, to peck out their eyes, and to  GHS  RHC 
90:3  eat up their bodies. 89:4The sheep then cried out; for their bodies were devoured by the birds.  GHS  RHC 
90:4  89:5I also cried out, and groaned in my sleep against the shepherd which overlooked the flock. 89:6And I looked, while the sheep were eaten up by the dogs, by the eagles, and by the kites. They neither left them their body, nor their skin, nor their muscles, until their bones alone remained; until their bones fell  GHS  RHC 
90:5  upon the ground. And the sheep became diminished. 89:7I observed likewise during the time, that twenty-tree shepherds were overlooking; who completed in their respective periods fifty-eight periods.  GHS  RHC 
90:6  89:8Then were small lambs born of those white sheep; who began to open their eyes and to see,  GHS  RHC 
90:7  crying out to the sheep. 89:9The sheep, however, cried not out to them, neither did they hear what they uttered to GHS  RHC 
90:8  them; but were deaf, blind, and obdurate in the greatest degrees. 89:10I saw in the vision that ravens flew down upon those lambs; 89:11That they seized one of them; and that tearing the sheep  GHS  RHC 
90:9  in pieces, they devoured them. 89:12I saw also, that the horns grew upon those lambs; and that the ravens lighted down upon their horns. 89:13I saw, too, that a large horn sprouted out on an animal among the sheep, and that their eyes  GHS  RHC 
90:10  were opened. 89:14He looked at them. Their eyes were wide open; and he cried out to them.  GHS  RHC 
90:11  89:15Then the dabela saw him; all of whom ran to him. 89:16And besides this, all the eagles, the avest, the ravens and the kites, were still carrying off the sheep, flying down upon them, and devouring them. The sheep were silent, but the dabela lamented and cried out. 89:17Then the ravens contended, and struggled with them. 89:18They wished among them to break his horn; but they prevailed not over him. 89:19I looked on them, until the shepherds, the eagles, the avest, and the kites came. 89:24All came together, and strove to break the horn of the dabela. 89:20Who cried out to the ravens to break the horn of the dabela; to contend with him; and to kill him. But he struggled with them, and cried out, that help might come to him. 89:21Then I perceived that the man came who had written down the names of the shepherds, and who ascended up before the Lord of the sheep. 89:22He brought assistance, and caused every one to see him descending to the help of the dabela. 89:23I perceived likewise that the Lord of the sheep came to them in wrath, while all those who saw him fled away; all fell down in his tabernacle before his face; while all the eagles, the avest, ravens, and kites assembled, and brought with them all the sheep of the field.  GHS  RHC 
90:19  89:27I saw, too, that a large sword was given to the sheep, who went forth against all the beasts of the field to slay them. 89:28But all the beasts and birds of heaven fled away from before their face. 89:25Then I saw, that the man, who wrote the book at the word of the Lord, opened the book of destruction, of that destruction which the last twelve shepherds wrought; and pointed out before the Lord of the sheep, that they destroyed more than those who preceded them. 89:26I saw also that the Lord of the sheep came to them, and taking in his hand the sceptre of his wrath seized the earth, which became rent asunder; while all the beasts and birds of heaven fell from the sheep, and sunk into the earth, which closed over them.  GHS  RHC 
90:20  89:29And I saw a throne erected in a delectable land; 89:30Upon this sat the Lord of the sheep, who received all the sealed books; 89:31Which were open before him.  GHS  RHC 
90:21  89:32Then the Lord called the first seven white ones, and commanded them to bring before him the first of the first stars, which preceded the stars whose form partly  GHS  RHC 
90:22  resembled that of horses; the first star, which fell down first; and they brought them all before him. 89:33And he spoke to the man who wrote in his presence, who was one of the seven white ones, saying, Take those seventy shepherds, to whom I delivered up the sheep, and who receiving them killed more of them  GHS  RHC 
90:23  than I commanded. Behold, I saw them all bound, and standing before him.  GHS  RHC 
90:24  First came on the trial of the stars, which, being judged, and found guilty, went to the place of punishment. They thrust them into a place, deep, and full of flaming fire, and full  GHS  RHC 
90:25  of pillars of fire. Then the seventy shepherds were judged, and being found guilty, were thrust  GHS  RHC 
90:26  into the flaming abyss. 89:34At that time likewise I perceived, that one abyss was thus opened in the midst of the earth, which was full of fire. 89:35And to this were brought the blind sheep; which being judged, and found guilty, were all  GHS  RHC 
90:27  thrust into that abyss of fire on the earth, and burnt. 89:36The abyss was on the right of that house. 89:37And I saw the sheep burning, and their bones consuming.  GHS  RHC 
90:28  89:38I stood beholding him immerge that ancient house, while they brought out its pillars, every plant in it, and the ivory infolding it. They brought it out, and deposited  GHS  RHC 
90:29  it in a place on the right side of the earth. 89:39I also saw, that the Lord of the sheep produced a new house, great, and loftier than the former, which he bound by the former circular spot. All its pillars were new, and its ivory new, as well as more abundant than the former ancient ivory, which he had brought out.  GHS  RHC 
90:30  89:40And while all the sheep which were left were in the midst of it, all the beasts of the earth, and all the birds of heaven, fell down and worshipped them, petitioning them, and obeying  GHS  RHC 
90:31  them in everything. 89:41Then those three, who were clothed in white, and who, holding me by my hand, had before caused me to ascend, while the hand of him who spoke held me;  GHS  RHC 
90:32  raised me up, and placed me in the midst of the sheep, before the judgment took place.  GHS  RHC 
90:33  89:42The sheep were all white, with wool long and pure. Then all who had perished, and had been destroyed, every beast of the field, and every bird of heaven, assembled in that house: while the Lord of the sheep rejoiced with great joy, because all were good, and had come back again to  GHS  RHC 
90:34  his dwelling. 89:43And I saw that they laid down the sword which had been given to the sheep, and returned it to his house, sealing it up in the presence of the Lord. 89:44All the sheep  GHS  RHC 
90:35  would have been inclosed in that house, had it been capable of containing them; and the eyes of all were open, GHS  RHC 
90:36  gazing on the good One; nor was there one among them who did not behold him. 89:45I likewise perceived that the house was large, wide, and extremely full.  GHS  RHC 
90:37  I saw, too, that a white cow was born, whose horns were great; and that all the beasts of the field, and all the  GHS  RHC 
90:38  birds of heaven, were alarmed at him, and entreated him at all times. 89:46Then I saw that the nature of all of them was changed, and that they became white cows; 89:47And that the first, who was in the midst of them, spoke, when that word became a large beast, upon the head of which were great and black horns; 89:48While the Lord of the sheep  GHS  RHC 
90:39  rejoiced over them, and over all the cows. 89:49I lay down in the midst of them: I awoke; and saw the whole.  GHS  RHC 
90:40  This is the vision which I saw, lying down and waking. Then I blessed the Lord of righteousness, and GHS  RHC 
90:41  gave glory to Him. 89:50Afterwards I wept abundantly, nor did my tears cease, so that I became incapable of enduring it. While I was looking on, they flowed on account of what I saw; for all was come and  GHS  RHC 
90:42  gone by; every individual circumstance respecting the conduct of mankind was seen by me. 89:51In that night I remembered my former dream; and therefore wept and was troubled, because I had seen that vision.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 91        
91:1  90:1And now, my son Mathusala, call to me all your brethren, and assemble for me all the children of your mother; for a voice calls me, and the spirit is poured out upon me, that I may show you everything which shall happen to you for ever.  GHS  RHC 
91:2  90:2Then Mathusala went, called to him all his brethren, and assembled his kindred.  GHS  RHC 
91:3  90:3And conversing with all his children in truth, 90:4Enoch said, Hear, my children, every word of your father, and listen in uprightness to the voice of my mouth; for I would gain your attention, while I address you. My beloved,  GHS  RHC 
91:4  be attached to integrity, and walk in it. 90:5Approach not integrity with a double heart; nor be associated with double-minded men: but walk, my children, in righteousness, which will conduct you in good paths; and be truth your companion.  GHS  RHC 
91:5  90:6For I know, that oppression will exist and prevail on earth; that on earth great punishment shall in the end take place; and that there shall be a consummation of all iniquity, which shall be cut off from its root, and every fabric raised by it shall pass away. GHS  RHC 
91:6  Iniquity, however, shall again be renewed, and consummated on earth. Every act of crime, and every act of oppression and impiety, shall be a second time embraced.  GHS  RHC 
91:7  90:7When therefore iniquity, sin, blasphemy, tyranny, and every evil work, shall increase, and when transgression, impiety, and uncleanness also shall increase, then upon them all shall great punishment be inflicted from heaven. 90:8The holy Lord shall go forth in wrath, and upon them all shall great punishment from heaven be inflicted. 90:9The holy Lord shall go forth in wrath, and with punishment, that he may execute judgment upon earth.  GHS  RHC 
91:8  90:10In those days oppression shall be cut off from its roots, and iniquity with fraud shall be eradicated, perishing from under heaven.  GHS  RHC 
91:9  90:11Every place of strength shall be surrendered with its inhabitants; with fire shall it be burnt. They shall be brought from every part of the earth, and be cast into a judgment of fire. They shall perish in wrath, and by a judgment overpowering them for ever.  GHS  RHC 
91:10  90:12Righteousness shall be raised up from slumber; and wisdom shall be raised up, and conferred upon them. 90:13Then shall the roots of iniquity be cut off; sinners perish by the sword; and blasphemers be annihilated everywhere. 90:14Those who meditate oppression, and those who blaspheme, by the sword shall perish.  GHS  RHC 
91:12  92:13Afterwards there shall be another week, the eighth of righteousness, to which shall be given a sword to execute judgment and justice upon all oppressors. 92:14aSinners shall be delivered up into the hands of the righteous,  GHS  RHC 
91:13  who during its completion shall acquire habitations by their righteousness; and the house of the great King shall be established for celebrations for ever.  GHS  RHC 
91:14  92:15band all men shall be on the watch for the path of integrity. 92:14bAfter this, in the ninth week, shall the judgment of righteousness be revealed to the whole world. 92:15aEvery work of the ungodly shall disappear from the whole earth; the world shall be marked for destruction; GHS  RHC 
91:15  92:16And after this, on the seventh day of the tenth week, there shall be an everlasting judgment, which shall be executed upon the Watchers; and a spacious eternal heaven shall spring forth in the midst of the angels.  GHS  RHC 
91:16  92:17The former heaven shall depart and pass away; a new heaven shall appear; and all the celestial powers shall shine with sevenfold splendour for ever.  GHS  RHC 
91:17  Afterwards likewise shall there be many weeks, which shall externally exist in goodness and in righteousness. 92:18Neither shall sin be named there for ever and for ever.  GHS  RHC 
91:18  90:15And now, my children, I will describe and point out to you the path of righteousness and the path of oppression. 90:16I will again point them out to you, that you may know what is to come.  GHS  RHC 
91:19  90:17Hear now, my children, and walk in the path of righteousness, but shun that of oppression; for all who walk in the path of iniquity shall perish for ever.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 92        
92:1  91:1That which was written by Enoch. He wrote all this instruction of wisdom for every man of dignity, and every judge of the earth; for all my children who shall dwell upon earth, and for subsequent generations, conducting themselves uprightly and peaceably.  GHS  RHC 
92:2  91:2Let not your spirit be grieved on account of the times; for the holy, the Great One, has prescribed a period to all.  GHS  RHC 
92:3  91:3Let the righteous man arise from slumber; let him arise, and proceed in the path of righteousness, in all its paths; and let him advance in goodness and eternal clemency.  GHS  RHC 
92:4  Mercy shall be showed to the righteous man; upon him shall be conferred integrity and power for ever. In goodness and in righteousness shall he exist, and shall walk in everlasting light;  GHS  RHC 
92:5  but sin shall perish in eternal darkness, nor be seen from that time forward for evermore.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 93        
93:1  92:1After this, Enoch began to speak from a book. 92:2And Enoch said, Concerning the children of righteousness, concerning the elect of the world, and concerning the plant of righteousness and integrity. 92:3Concerning these things will I speak, and these things will I explain to you, my children: I who am Enoch. In consequence of that which has been shown to me, from my heavenly vision and from the voice of the holy angels have I acquired knowledge; and from the tablet of heaven have I acquired understanding.  GHS  RHC 
93:3  92:4Enoch then began to speak from a book, and said, I have been born the seventh in the first week, while judgment and righteousness wait with patience.  GHS  RHC 
93:4  92:5But after me, in the second week, great wickedness shall arise, and fraud shall spring forth. 92:6In that week the end of the first shall take place, in which mankind shall be safe. 92:7But when the first is completed, iniquity shall grow up; and during the second week he shall execute the decree upon sinners. 92:8Afterwards, in the third week, during its completion, a man of the plant of righteous judgment shall be selected; and after him the Plant of righteousness shall come for ever.  GHS  RHC 
93:6  92:9Subsequently, in the fourth week, during its completion, the visions of the holy and the righteous shall be seen, the order of generation after generation shall take place, and a habitation shall be made for them.  GHS  RHC 
93:7  Then in the fifth week, during its completion, the house of glory and of dominion shall be erected for ever.  GHS  RHC 
93:8  92:10After that, in the sixth week, all those who are in it shall be darkened, the hearts of all of them shall be forgetful of wisdom, and in it shall a Man arise and come forth. 92:11And during its completion He shall burn the house of dominion with fire, and all the race of the elect root shall be dispersed. GHS  RHC 
93:9  92:12Afterwards, in the seventh week, a perverse generation shall arise; abundant shall be its deeds, and all its deeds perverse. GHS  RHC 
93:10  During its completion, the righteous shall be selected from the everlasting plant of righteousness; and to them shall be given the sevenfold doctrine of his whole creation.  GHS  RHC 
93:11  92:19Who is there of all the children of men, capable of hearing the voice of the Holy One without emotion? 92:20Who is there capable of thinking his thoughts? Who capable of contemplating all the workmanship  GHS  RHC 
93:12  of heaven? Who of comprehending the deeds of heaven? 92:21He may behold its animation, but not its spirit. He may be capable of conversing respecting it, but not of ascending to it. He may see  GHS  RHC 
93:13  all the boundaries of these things, and meditate upon them; but he can make nothing like them. 92:22Who of all men is able to understand the breadth and length of the earth? 92:23By whom have been seen the dimensions of all these things?  GHS  RHC 
93:14  Is it every man who is capable of comprehending the extent of heaven; what its elevation is, and by what it is supported? 92:24How many are the numbers of the stars; and where all the luminaries remain at rest?  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 94        
94:1  93:1And now let me exhort you, my children, to love righteousness, and to walk in it; for the paths of righteousness are worthy of acceptation; but the paths of iniquity shall suddenly fail, and be diminished.  GHS  RHC 
94:2  93:2To men of note in their generation the paths of oppression and death are revealed; but they keep far from them, and do not follow them.  GHS  RHC 
94:3  93:3Now, too, let me exhort you who are righteous, not to walk in the paths of evil and oppression, nor in the paths of death. Approach them not, that you may not perish; but covet,  GHS  RHC 
94:4  93:4And choose for yourselves righteousness, and a good life. 93:5Walk in the paths of peace, that you may live, and be found worthy.  GHS  RHC 
94:5  Retain my words in your inmost thoughts, and obliterate them not from your hearts; for I know that sinners counsel men to commit crime craftily. They are not found in every place, nor does every counsel possess a little of them.  GHS  RHC 
94:6  93:6Woe to those who build iniquity and oppression, and who lay the foundation of fraud; for suddenly shall they be subverted, and never obtain peace.  GHS  RHC 
94:7  93:7Woe to those who build up their houses with crime; for from their very foundations shall their houses be demolished, and by the sword shall they themselves fall. Those, too, who acquire gold and silver, shall justly and suddenly perish.  GHS  RHC 
94:8  Woe to you who are rich, for in your riches have you trusted; but from your riches you shall be removed; because you have not remembered the Most High in the days of your prosperity.  GHS  RHC 
94:9  93:8You have committed blasphemy and iniquity; and are destined to the day of the effusion of blood, to the day of darkness, and to the day of the great judgment.  GHS  RHC 
94:10  93:9This I will declare and point out to you, that he who created you will destroy you. 93:10When you fall, he will not show you mercy; but your Creator will rejoice in your destruction.  GHS  RHC 
94:11  93:11Let those, then, who shall be righteous among you in those days, detest sinners, and the ungodly.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 95        
95:1  94:1that my eyes were clouds of water, that I might weep over you, and pour forth my tears like rain, and rest from the sorrow of my heart!  GHS  RHC 
95:2  94:2Who has permitted you to hate and to transgress? Judgment shall overtake you, ye sinners.  GHS  RHC 
95:3  94:3The righteous shall not fear the wicked; because God will again bring them into your power, that you may avenge yourselves of them according to your pleasure.  GHS  RHC 
95:4  94:4Woe to you who shall be so bound by execrations, that you cannot be released from them; the remedy being far removed from you on account of your sins.  GHS  RHC 
95:5  Woe to you who recompense your neighbour with evil; for you shall be recompensed according to your works.  GHS  RHC 
95:6  94:5Woe to you, false witnesses, you who aggravate iniquity; for you shall suddenly perish.  GHS  RHC 
95:7  94:6Woe to you, sinners; for you reject the righteous; for you receive or reject at pleasure those who commit iniquity; and their yoke shall prevail over you.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 96        
96:1  95:1Wait in hope, you righteous; for suddenly shall sinners perish from before you, and you shall exercise dominion over them, according to your will.  GHS  RHC 
96:2  95:2In the day of the sufferings of sinners your offspring shall be elevated, and lifted up like eagles. Your nest shall be more exalted than that of the avest; you shall ascend, and enter into the cavities of the earth, and into the clefts of the rocks for ever, like conies, from the sight of the ungodly; 95:3Who shall groan over you, and weep like sirens.  GHS  RHC 
96:3  95:4You shall not fear those who trouble you; for restoration shall be yours; a splendid light shall shine around you, and the voice of tranquility shall be heard from heaven.  GHS  RHC 
96:4  Woe to you, sinners; for your wealth makes you resemble saints, but your hearts reproach you, knowing that you are sinners. This word shall testify against you, for the remembrance of crime.  GHS  RHC 
96:5  95:5Woe to you who feed upon the glory of the corn, and drink the strength of the deepest spring, and in the pride of your power tread down the humble.  GHS  RHC 
96:6  95:6Woe to you who drink water at pleasure; for suddenly shall you be recompensed, consumed, and withered, because you have forsaken the foundation of life.  GHS  RHC 
96:7  95:7Woe to you who act iniquitously, fraudulently, and blasphemously; there shall be a remembrance against you for evil.  GHS  RHC 
96:8  95:8Woe to you, powerful, who with power strike down righteousness; for the day of your destruction shall come; while at that very time many and good days shall be the portion of the righteous, even at the period of your judgment.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 97        
97:1  96:1The righteous are confident that sinners will be disgraced, and perish in the day of iniquity.  GHS  RHC 
97:2  96:2You shall yourselves be conscious of it; for the Most High will remember your destruction, and the angels shall rejoice over it.  GHS  RHC 
97:3  What will you do sinners? And where will you fly in the day of judgment, when you shall hear the words of the prayer of the righteous?  GHS  RHC 
97:4  96:3You are not like them who in this respect witness against you; you are associates of sinners.  GHS  RHC 
97:5  96:4In those days shall the prayers of the righteous come up before the Lord. When the day of your judgment shall arrive;  GHS  RHC 
97:6  and every circumstance of your iniquity be related before the great and the holy One; 96:5Your faces shall be covered with shame; while every deed, strengthened by crime, shall be rejected.  GHS  RHC 
97:7  96:6Woe unto you, sinners, who in the midst of the sea, and on dry land, are those against whom an evil record exists.  GHS  RHC 
97:8  Woe to you who squander silver and gold, not obtained in righteousness, and say, We are rich, possess wealth, and have acquired everything which we can desire.  GHS  RHC 
97:9  96:7Now then will we do whatsoever we are disposed to do; for we have amassed silver; our barns are full, and the husbandmen of our families are like overflowing water.  GHS  RHC 
97:10  96:8Like water shall your falsehood pass away; for your wealth will not be permanent, but shall suddenly ascend from you, because you have obtained it all iniquitously; to extreme malediction shall you be delivered up.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 98        
98:1  96:9And now I swear to you, crafty, as well as simple ones; that you, often contemplating the earth,  GHS  RHC 
98:2  you who are men, clothe yourselves more elegantly that married women, and both together more so than unmarried ones, everywhere arraying yourselves in majesty, in magnificence, in authority, and in silver: but gold, purple, honour, and wealth, like water, flow away.  GHS  RHC 
98:3  96:10Erudition therefore and wisdom are not theirs. Thus shall they perish, together with their riches, with all their glory, and with their honours; 96:11While with disgrace, with slaughter, and in extreme penury, shall their spirits be thrust into a furnace of fire.  GHS  RHC 
98:4  96:12I have sworn to you, sinners, that neither mountain nor hill has been or shall be subservient to woman. 96:13Neither in this way has crime been sent down to us upon earth, but men of their own heads have invented it; and greatly shall those who give it efficiency be execrated.  GHS  RHC 
98:5  96:14Barrenness shall not be previously inflicted on woman; but on account of the work of her hands shall she die childless.  GHS  RHC 
98:6  96:15I have sworn to you, sinners, by the holy and the Great One, that all your evil deeds are disclosed in the heavens; and that none of your oppressive acts are concealed and secret.  GHS  RHC 
98:7  96:16Think not in your minds, neither say in your hearts, that every crime is not manifested and seen.  GHS  RHC 
98:8  In heaven it is daily written down before the Most High. Henceforwards shall it be manifested; for every act of oppression which you commit shall be daily recorded, until the period of your condemnation.  GHS  RHC 
98:9  96:17Woe to you, simple ones, for you shall perish in your simplicity. To the wise you will not listen,  GHS  RHC 
98:10  and that which is good you shall not obtain. 96:18Now therefore know that you are destined to the day of destruction; nor hope that sinners shall live; but in process of time you shall die; for you are not marked for redemption; 96:19But are destined to the day of the great judgment, to the day of distress, and the extreme ignominy of your souls.  GHS  RHC 
98:11  96:20Woe to you, obdurate in heart, who commit crime, and feed on blood. Whence is it that you feed on good things, drink, and are satiated? Is it not because our Lord, the Most High, has abundantly supplied every good thing upon earth? To you there shall not be peace.  GHS  RHC 
98:12  96:21Woe to you who love the deeds of iniquity. Why do you hope for that which is good? Know that you shall be given up into the hands of the righteous; who shall cut  GHS  RHC 
98:13  off your necks, slay you, and show you no compassion. 96:22Woe to you who rejoice in the trouble of the righteous; for a grave shall not be dug for you. 96:23Woe to you who frustrate the word of  GHS  RHC 
98:15  the righteous; for to you there shall be no hope of life. 96:24Woe to you who write down the word of falsehood, and the word of the wicked; for their falsehood they record, that they may hear and not forget folly.  GHS  RHC 
98:16  96:25To them there shall be no peace; but they shall surely die suddenly.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 99        
99:1  97:1Woe to them who act impiously, who laud and honour the word of falsehood. You have been lost in perdition; and have never led a virtuous life.  GHS  RHC 
99:2  97:2Woe to you who change the words of integrity. They transgress against the everlasting decree; 97:3And cause the heads of those who are not sinners to be trodden down upon the earth.  GHS  RHC 
99:3  97:4In those days you, O righteous, shall have been deemed worthy of having your prayers rise up in remembrance; and shall have deposited them in testimony before the angels, that they might records the sins of the sinners in the presence of the Most High.  GHS  RHC 
99:4  97:5In those days the nations shall be overthrown; but the families of the nations shall rise again in the day of perdition.  GHS  RHC 
99:5  97:6In those days they who become pregnant shall go forth, carry off their children, and forsake them. Their offspring shall slip from them, and while suckling them shall they forsake them; they shall never return to them, and never instruct their beloved.  GHS  RHC 
99:6  97:7Again I swear to you, sinners, that crime has been prepared for the day of blood, which never ceases. 97:8They shall worship stones, and engrave golden, silver, and wooden images. They shall worship impure spirits, demons, and every idol, in temples; but no help shall be obtained for them.  GHS  RHC 
99:8  Their hearts shall become impious through their folly, and their eyes be blinded with mental superstition. In their visionary dreams  GHS  RHC 
99:9  shall they be impious and superstitious, lying in all their actions, and worshipping a stone. Altogether shall they perish.  GHS  RHC 
99:10  97:9But in those days blessed shall they be, to whom the word of wisdom is delivered; who point out and pursue the path of the Most High; who walk in the way of righteousness, and who act not impiously with the impious. 97:10They shall be saved.  GHS  RHC 
99:11  97:11Woe to you who expand the crime of your neighbour; for in hell shall you be slain.  GHS  RHC 
99:12  97:12Woe to you who lay the foundation of sin and deceit, and who are bitter on earth; for on it shall you be consumed.  GHS  RHC 
99:13  97:13Woe to you who build your houses by the labour of others, every part of which is constructed with brick, and with the stone of crime; I tell you, that you shall not obtain peace.  GHS  RHC 
99:14  97:14Woe to you who despise the extent of the everlasting inheritance of your fathers, while your souls follow after idols; for to you there shall be no tranquillity.  GHS  RHC 
99:15  97:15Woe to them who commit iniquity, and give aid to blasphemy, who slay their neighbour until the day of the great judgment;  GHS  RHC 
99:16  for your glory shall fall; malevolence shall He put into your hearts, and the spirit of his wrath shall stir you up, that every one of you may perish by the sword. 97:16Then shall all the righteous and the holy remember your crimes.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 100        
100:1  98:1In those days shall fathers be struck down with their children in the presence of each other; and brethren with their brethren shall fall dead: until a river shall flow from their blood.  GHS  RHC 
100:2  98:2For a man shall not restrain his hand from his children, nor from his children's children; his mercy will be to kill them. 98:3Nor shall the sinner restrain his hand from his honoured brother. From the dawn of day to the setting sun shall the slaughter continue.  GHS  RHC 
100:3  The horse shall wade up to his breast, and the chariot shall sink to its axle, in the blood of sinners.  GHS  RHC 
100:4  99:1In those days the angels shall descend into places of concealment, and gather together in one spot all who have assisted in crime. 99:2In that day shall the Most High rise up to execute the great judgment upon all sinners,  GHS  RHC 
100:5  and to commit the guardianship of all the righteous and holy to the holy angels, that they may protect them as the apple of an eye, until every evil and every crime be annihilated. 99:3Whether or not the righteous sleep securely, wise men shall then truly perceive.  GHS  RHC 
100:6  99:4And the sons of the earth shall understand every word of that book, knowing that their riches cannot save them in the ruin of their crimes.  GHS  RHC 
100:7  99:5Woe to you, sinners, when you shall be afflicted on account of the righteous in the day of the great trouble; shall be burnt in the fire; and be recompensed according to your deeds.  GHS  RHC 
100:8  99:6Woe to you, perverted in heart, who are watchful to obtain an accurate knowledge of evil, and to discover terrors. No one shall assist you.  GHS  RHC 
100:9  99:7Woe to you, sinners; for with the words of your mouths, and with the work of your hands, have you acted impiously; in the flame of a blazing fire shall you be burnt.  GHS  RHC 
100:10  99:8And now know, that the angels shall inquire into your conduct in heaven; of the sun, the moon, and the stars, shall they inquire respecting your sins; for upon earth you exercise  GHS  RHC 
100:11  jurisdiction over the righteous. 99:9Every cloud shall bear witness against you, the snow, the dew, and the rain: for all of them shall be withholden from you, that they may not descend upon you, nor  GHS  RHC 
100:12  become subservient to your crimes. 99:10Now then bring gifts of salutation to the rain; that, not being withholden, it may descend upon you; and to the dew, if it has received from you gold and silver. But when the frost, snow, cold, every snowy wind, and every suffering belonging to them, fall upon you, in those days you will be utterly incapable of standing before them.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 101        
101:1  100:1Attentively consider heaven, all you progeny of heaven, and all the works of the Most High; fear him,  GHS  RHC 
101:2  nor conduct yourselves criminally before him. 100:2If He shut up the windows of heaven, restraining the rain  GHS  RHC 
101:3  and dew, that it may not descend upon the earth on your account, what will you do? 100:3And if He send his wrath upon you, and upon all your deeds, you are not they who can supplicate him; you who utter against his righteousness, language proud and powerful.  GHS  RHC 
101:4  To you there shall be no peace. 100:4Do you not see the commanders of ships, how their vessels are tossed about by the waves, torn to pieces by the winds, and exposed to the GHS  RHC 
101:5  greatest peril? 100:5That they therefore fear, because their whole property is embarked with them on the ocean; and that they forbode evil in their hearts, because it may swallow them up, and they may  GHS  RHC 
101:6  perish in it? 100:6Is not the whole sea, all its waters, and all its commotion, the work of him, the Most  GHS  RHC 
101:7  High; of him who has sealed up all its exertions, and girded it on every side with sand? 100:7Is it not at his rebuke dried up, and alarmed; while all its fish with everything contained in it die? And will not you, sinners, who are  GHS  RHC 
101:8  on earth, fear him? Is not He the maker of heaven and earth, and of all things which are in them? 100:8And who has given erudition and wisdom to all that move progressive upon the earth, and over the sea?  GHS  RHC 
101:9  100:9Are not the commanders of ships terrified at the ocean? And shall not sinners be terrified at the Most High?  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 102        
102:1  102:1In those days, when He shall cast the calamity of fire upon you, whither will you fly, and where will you be safe? 102:2And when He sends forth his word against you, are you not spared, and terrified?  GHS  RHC 
102:2  102:3All the luminaries are agitated with great fear; and all the earth is spared, while it trembles, and suffers anxiety.  GHS  RHC 
102:3  102:4All the angels fulfill the commands received by them, and are desirous of being concealed from the presence of the great Glory; while the children of the earth are alarmed and troubled. 102:5But you, sinners, are for ever accursed; to you there shall be no peace.  GHS  RHC 
102:4  102:6Fear not, souls of the righteous; but wait with patient hope for the day of your death in righteousness. GHS  RHC 
102:5  Grieve not, because your souls descend in great trouble, with groaning, lamentation, and sorrow, to the receptacle of the dead. In your lifetime your bodies have not received a recompense in proportion to your goodness, but in the period of your existence have sinners existed; in the period of execration and of punishment.  GHS  RHC 
102:6  102:7And when you die, sinners say concerning you, As we die, the righteous die. What profit have they in their works?  GHS  RHC 
102:7  Behold, like us, they expire in sorrow and in darkness. What advantage have they over us? Henceforward are we equal.  GHS  RHC 
102:8  What will be within their grasp, and what before their eyes for ever? For behold they are dead; and never will they again perceive the light.  GHS  RHC 
102:9  I say unto you, sinners, You have been satisfied with meat and drink, with human plunder and rapine, with sin, with the  GHS  RHC 
102:10  acquisition of wealth and with the sight of good days. Have you not marked the righteous, how their end is in peace? For no  GHS  RHC 
102:11  oppression is found in them even to the day of their death. They perish, and are as if they were not, while their souls descend in trouble to the receptacle of the dead.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 103        
103:1  103:1But now I swear to you, righteous, by the greatness of his splendour and his glory;  GHS  RHC 
103:2  by his illustrious kingdom and by his majesty, to you I swear, that I comprehend this mystery; that I have read the tablet of heaven, have seen the writing of the holy ones, and have discovered what is written and impressed on it concerning you.  GHS  RHC 
103:3  103:2I have seen that all goodness, joy, and glory has been prepared for you, and been written down for the spirits of them who die eminently righteous and good. To you it shall be given in return for your troubles; and your portion of happiness shall far exceed the portion of the living.  GHS  RHC 
103:4  103:3The spirits of you who die in righteousness shall exist and rejoice. Their spirits shall exult; and their remembrance shall be before the face of the Mighty One from generation to generation. Nor shall they now fear disgrace.  GHS  RHC 
103:5  103:4Woe to you, sinners, when you die in your sins; and they, who are like you, say respecting you, Blessed are these sinners. They have lived out their whole period;  GHS  RHC 
103:6  and now they die in happiness and in wealth. Distress and slaughter they knew not while alive; in honour they die; nor ever in their lifetime did judgment overtake them.  GHS  RHC 
103:7  103:5But has it not been shown to them, that, when to the receptacle of the dead their souls shall be made to descend, their evil deeds shall become their greatest torment?  GHS  RHC 
103:8  Into darkness, into the snare, and into the flame, which shall burn to the great judgment, shall their spirits enter; and the great judgment shall take effect for ever and for ever. 103:6Woe to you; for to you there shall be no peace.  GHS  RHC 
103:9  Neither can you say to the righteous, and to the good who are alive, In the days of our trouble have we been afflicted; every manner of trouble have we seen, and many evil things have suffered. 103:7Our spirits have been consumed, lessened, and diminished.  GHS  RHC 
103:10  103:8We have perished; nor has there been a possibility of help for us in word or in deed: we have found none, but have been tormented and destroyed. 103:9We have not expected to live day after day.  GHS  RHC 
103:11  103:10We hoped indeed to have been the head; 103:11But we have become the tail. We have been afflicted, when we have exerted ourselves; but we have been devoured by sinners and the ungodly; their yoke has been heavy upon us.  GHS  RHC 
103:12  103:12Those have exercised dominion over us who detest and who goad us; and to those who hate us have we humbled our neck; but they have shown no compassion towards us.  GHS  RHC 
103:13  103:13We have been desirous of escaping from them, that we might fly away and be at rest; but we have found no place to which we could fly, and be secure from them.  GHS  RHC 
103:14  We have sought an asylum with princes in our distress, and have cried out to those who were devouring us; but our cry has not been regarded, nor have they been disposed to hear our voice;  GHS  RHC 
103:15  103:14But rather to assist those who plunder and devour us; those who diminish us, and hide their oppression; who remove not their yoke from us, but devour, enervate, and slay us; who conceal our slaughter, nor remember that they have lifted up their hands against us.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 104        
104:1  104:1I swear to you, righteous, that in heaven the angels record your goodness before the glory of the Mighty  GHS  RHC 
104:2  One. 104:2Wait with patient hope; for formerly you have been disgraced with evil and with affliction; but now shall you shine like the luminaries of heaven.  GHS  RHC 
104:3  You shall be seen, and the gates of heaven shall be opened to you. Your cries have cried for judgment; and it has appeared to you; for an account of all your sufferings shall be required from the  GHS  RHC 
104:4  princes, and from every one who has assisted your plunderers. 104:3Wait with patient hope; nor relinquish your confidence; for great joy shall be yours, like that of the angels in heaven. Conduct yourselves as you may, still you shall not be concealed in the day of the great judgment. You shall not be found like sinners; and eternal  GHS  RHC 
104:6  condemnation shall be far from you, so long as the world exists. 104:4And now fear not, righteous, when you see sinners flourishing and prosperous in their ways. 104:5Be not associates with them;  GHS  RHC 
104:7  but keep yourselves at a distance from their oppression; be you associated with the host of heaven. You, sinners, say, All our transgressions shall not be taken account of, and be recorded.  GHS  RHC 
104:8  But all your transgressions shall be recorded daily. 104:6And be assured by me, that light and darkness,  GHS  RHC 
104:9  day and night, behold all your transgressions. Be not impious in your thoughts; lie not; surrender not the word of uprightness; lie not against the word of the holy and the mighty One; glorify not your  GHS  RHC 
104:10  idols; for all your lying and all your impiety is not for righteousness, but for great crime. 104:7Now will I point out a mystery: Many sinners shall turn and transgress against the word of uprightness. 104:8They shall speak evil things; they shall utter falsehood; execute great undertakings; and compose books in  GHS  RHC 
104:11  their own words. But when they shall write all my words correctly in their own languages, 104:9They shall neither change or diminish them; but shall write them all correctly; all which from the first I have uttered  GHS  RHC 
104:12  concerning them. 104:10Another mystery also I point out. To the righteous and the wise shall be given books  GHS  RHC 
104:13  of joy, of integrity, and of great wisdom. To them shall books be given, in which they shall believe; 104:11And in which they shall rejoice. And all the righteous shall be rewarded, who from these shall acquire the knowledge of every upright path.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 105        
105:1  104:1In those days, saith the Lord, they shall call to the children of the earth, and make them listen to their wisdom. Show them that you are their leaders;  GHS  RHC 
105:2  for I and my Son will for ever hold communion with them in the paths of uprightness, while they are still alive. Peace shall be yours. Rejoice, children of integrity, in the truth. 104:2And that remuneration shall take place over the whole earth;  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 106        
106:1  105:1After a time, my son Mathusala took a wife for his son Lamech. 105:2She became GHS  RHC 
106:2  pregnant by him, and brought forth a child, the flesh of which was as white as snow, and red as a rose; the hair of whose head was white like wool, and long; and whose eyes were beautiful. When he opened them, he illuminated all the house, like the sun; the whole house  GHS  RHC 
106:3  abounded with light. 105:3And when he was taken from the hand of the midwife,  GHS  RHC 
106:4  Lamech his father became afraid of him;  GHS  RHC 
106:5  and flying away came to his own father Mathusala, and said, I have begotten a son, unlike to other children. He is not human; but, resembling the offspring of the angels of heaven, is of a different nature from ours, being altogether unlike to us. 105:4His eyes are bright as the rays of the sun; his  GHS  RHC 
106:6  countenance glorious, and he looks not as if he belonged to me, but to the angels. 105:5I am afraid, lest something miraculous should  GHS  RHC 
106:7  take place on earth in his days. 105:6And now, my father, let me entreat and request you to go to our progenitor Enoch, and learn from him the truth; for his residence is  GHS  RHC 
106:8  with the angels. 105:7When Mathusala heard the words of his son, he came to me at the extremities of the earth; for he had been informed that I was there: and he cried out. 105:8I heard his voice, and went to him saying, Behold, I am here, my son; since  GHS  RHC 
106:9  you have come to me. 105:9He answered and said, On account of a great event have I come to you; and on account of a sight difficult to be comprehended  GHS  RHC 
106:10  have I approached you. 105:10And now, my father, hear me; for to my son Lamech a child has been born, who resembles not him; and whose nature is not like the nature of man. His colour is whiter than snow; he is redder than the rose; the hair of his head is whiter than white wool; his eyes are like the rays of the sun; and when he opened them he  GHS  RHC 
106:11  illuminated the whole house. 105:11When also he was taken from the hand of the midwife,  GHS  RHC 
106:12  105:12His father Lamech feared, and fled to me, believing not that the child belonged to him, but that he resembled the angels of heaven. And behold I am come to you, that you might point out to me the truth. 105:13Then I, Enoch, answered and said, The Lord will effect a new thing upon the earth. This have I explained, and seen in a vision. I have shown you that in the generations of Jared my father, those who were from heaven disregarded the word of the Lord. Behold they committed crimes; laid aside their class, and intermingled with women. With them also they transgressed; married with them, and begot children. 105:16aAnd his posterity shall beget on the earth giants, not spiritual, but carnal. Upon the earth shall a great punishment be inflicted, and it shall be washed from all corruption. 105:14A great destruction therefore shall come upon all the earth; a deluge,  GHS  RHC 
106:16  a great destruction, shall take place in one year. 105:15This child which is born to your son shall survive on the earth, and his three sons shall be saved with him. When all mankind who are on the earth shall die, he shall be safe. 105:16bNow therefore inform your son Lamech, that he who is born is his child in truth; and he shall call his name Noah, for he shall be to you a survivor. He and his children shall be saved from the corruption which shall take place in the world; from all the sin and from all the iniquity which shall be consummated on earth in his days. Afterwards shall greater impiety take place than that which had been before consummated on the earth; for I am acquainted with holy mysteries, which the Lord himself has discovered and explained to me; and which I have read in the tablets of heaven.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 107        
107:1  105:17In them I saw it written, that the generation after generation shall transgress, until a righteous race shall arise; until transgression and crime perish from off the earth; until all  GHS  RHC 
107:2  goodness come upon it. 105:18And now, my son, go tell your son Lamech, 105:19That the  GHS  RHC 
107:3  child which is born is his child in truth; and that there is no deception. 105:20When Mathusala heard the word of his father Enoch, who had shown him every secret thing, he returned with understanding, and called the name of that child Noah; because he was to console the earth on account of all its destruction.  GHS  RHC 

The Book of Enoch ~ Chapter 108        
108:1  105:21Another book, which Enoch wrote for his son Mathusala, and for those who should come after him, GHS  RHC 
108:2  and preserve their purity of conduct in the latter days. You, who have laboured, shall wait in those days, until the evil doers be consumed, and the power of the guilty be annihilated. Wait, until sin pass away; for their names shall be blotted out of the holy books; their seed shall be destroyed, and their spirits slain. They shall cry out and lament in the invisible waste, and in the bottomless fire shall they burn. There I perceived, as it were, a cloud which could not be seen through; for from the depth of it I was unable to look upwards. I beheld also a flame of fire blazing brightly, and, as it were, GHS  RHC 
108:5  glittering mountains whirled around, and agitated from side to side. 105:22Then I inquired of one of the holy angels who was with me, and said, What is this splendid object? For it is not heaven, but a flame of fire alone which  GHS  RHC 
108:6  blazes; and in it there is the clamour of exclamation, of woe, and of great suffering. 105:23He said, There, into that place which you behold, shall be thrust the spirits of sinners and blasphemers; of those who shall do evil, and who shall pervert all which God has spoken by the mouth  GHS  RHC 
108:7  of the prophets; all which they ought to do. For respecting these things there shall be writings and impressions above in heaven, that the angels may read them and know what shall happen both to sinners and to the spirits of the humble; to those who have suffered in their bodies, but have been rewarded  GHS  RHC 
108:8  by God; who have been injuriously treated by wicked men; who have loved God; who have been attached neither to gold nor silver, nor to any good thing in the world, but have given their bodies to torment; 105:24To those who from the period of their birth have not been covetous of earthly riches; but have regarded themselves as a breath passing away. 105:25Such has been their conduct; and much has the Lord tried them; and their spirits have been  GHS  RHC 
108:10  found pure, that they might bless his name. All their blessings have I related in a book; and He has rewarded them; for they have been found to love heaven with an everlasting aspiration. God has said, While they have been trodden down by wicked men, they have heard from them revilings and blasphemies; and have been ignominiously treated,  GHS  RHC 
108:11  while they were blessing me. And now will I call the spirits of the good from the generation of light, and will change those who have been born in darkness; who have not in their bodies been recompensed GHS  RHC 
108:12  with glory, as their faith may have merited. 105:26I will bring them into the splendid light of those who  GHS  RHC 
108:13  love my holy name: and I will place each of them on a throne of glory, of glory peculiarly his own, and they shall be at rest during unnumbered periods. Righteous is the judgment of God; 105:27For to the faithful  GHS  RHC 
108:14  shall he give faith in the habitations of uprightness. They shall see those, who have been  GHS  RHC 
108:15  born in darkness unto darkness shall be cast; while the righteous shall be at rest. Sinners shall cry out, beholding them, while they exist in splendour and proceed forwards to the days and periods prescribed to them.  GHS  RHC
