1.1 The words of the blessing of Enoch, according to which he blessed the chosen
and righteous, who must be present on the Day of Distress, which is appointed, for
the removal of all the wicked and impious.
1.2 And Enoch took up his parable, and said: There was a righteous man, whose
eyes were opened by the Lord, and he saw a Holy vision in the Heavens, which the
Angels showed to me, and I heard everything from them. And I understood what I
saw, but not for this generation, but for a distant generation that will come.
1.3 Concerning the chosen, I spoke, and I uttered a parable concerning them: The
Holy and Great One will come out from His dwelling.
1.4 And the Eternal God will tread, from there, upon Mount Sinai, and He will
appear with His Host, and will appear in the strength of His Power from Heaven.
1.5 And all will be afraid, and the Watchers will shake, and fear and great
trembling will seize them, unto the ends of the Earth.
1.6 And the high mountains will be shaken, and the high hills will be made low,
and will melt like wax in a flame.
1.7 And the earth will sink, and everything that is on the earth will be destroyed,
and there will be judgement upon all, and upon all the righteous.
1.8 But for the righteous, He will make peace, and He will keep safe the chosen,
and mercy will be upon them. They will all belong to God, and will prosper, and
be blessed, and the light of God will shine on them.
1.9 And behold! He comes with ten thousand Holy Ones to execute judgement
upon them, and to destroy the impious, and to contend with all flesh, concerning
everything that the sinners, and the impious, have done and wrought against Him
2.1 Contemplate all the events in the sky. How the lights in the sky do not change
their courses. How each rises and sets in order, each at its proper time, and they do
not transgress their law.
2.2 Consider the Earth, and understand, from the work that is done upon it, from
the beginning to the end, that no work of God changes as it becomes manifest.
3.1 Contemplate, and see, how all the trees appear withered, and all their leaves
are stripped; with the exception of the fourteen trees which are not stripped,
which remain with the old leaves, until the new come after two or three years.
4.1 And, again, contemplate the days of summer; how at its beginning the Sun is
above it. You seek shelter and shade because of the heat of the Sun, and the earth
burns with scorching heat, and you cannot tread upon the earth, or upon a rock,
because of its heat
5.1 Contemplate how the trees are covered with green leaves, and bear fruit. And
understand, in respect of everything, and perceive how He, who lives for ever,
made all these things for you.
5.2 And how His works are before Him in each succeeding year, and all His works
serve Him, and do not change; but as God has decreed, so everything is done.
5.3 And consider how the seas and rivers together complete their tasks.
5.4 But you sinners, you have not persevered in, nor observed, the Law of the
Lord. But you have transgressed, and have spoken proud and hard words with
your unclean mouth, against His Majesty. You hard of heart! You will not have
5.5 And because of this you will curse your days, and the years of your life you will
destroy. And the eternal curse will increase, and you will not receive mercy.
5.6 In those days, you will transform your name into an eternal curse, to all the
righteous, and they will curse you sinners for ever. And for all you sinners there
will be no salvation.
5.7 For the chosen; there will be light, joy, and peace, and they will inherit the
Earth. But for you, the impious, there will be a curse.
5.8 When wisdom is given to the chosen, they will all live, and will not again do
wrong, either through forgetfulness, or through pride. But those who possess
wisdom will be humble.
5.9 They will not again do wrong, and they will not be judged in all the days of
their life, and they will not die of wrath or anger. But they will complete the
number of the days of their life. And their life will grow in peace, and the years of
their joy will increase, in gladness and eternal peace; all the days of their life.
6.1 And it came to pass, when the sons of men had increased, that in those days
there were born to them fair and beautiful daughters.
6.2 And the Angels, the sons of Heaven, saw them and desired them. And they
said to one another: “Come, let us choose for ourselves wives, from the children
of men, and let us beget, for ourselves, children.”
6.3 And Semyaza, who was their leader, said to them: “I fear that you may not
wish this deed to be done, and that I alone will pay for this great sin.”
6.4 And they all answered him, and said: “Let us all swear an oath, and bind one
another with curses, so not to alter this plan, but to carry out this plan effectively.”
6.5 Then, they all swore together, and all bound one another, with curses, to it.
6.6 And they were, in all, two hundred, and they came down on Ardis, which is
the summit of Mount Hermon. And they called the mountain Hermon, because on
it they swore, and bound one another with curses.
6.7 And these are the names of their leaders: Semyaza, who was their leader,
Urakiba, Ramiel, Kokabiel, Tamiel, Ramiel, Daniel, Ezeqiel, Baraqiel, Asael,
Armaros, Batriel, Ananel, Zaqiel, Samsiel, Sartael, Turiel, Yomiel, Araziel.
7.1 And they took wives for themselves, and everyone chose for himself, one each.
And, they began to go into them, and were promiscuous with them. And they
taught them charms, and spells, and they showed them the cutting of roots and
7.2 And they became pregnant and bore large giants. And their height was three
7.3 These, devoured all the toil of men, until men were unable to sustain them.
7.4 And the giants turned against them in order to devour men.
7.5 And they began to sin against birds, and against animals, and against reptiles,
and against fish, and they devoured one another’s flesh, and drank the blood from
7.6 Then the Earth complained about the lawless ones.
8.1 And Azazel taught men to make swords, and daggers, and shields, and
breastplates. And he showed them the things after these, and the art of making
them; bracelets and ornaments, and the art of making up the eyes, and of
beautifying the eyelids, and the most precious and choice stones, and all kinds of
coloured dyes. And the world was changed.
8.2 And there was great impiety, and much fornication, and they went astray, and
all their ways became corrupt.
8.3 Amezarak taught all those who cast spells and cut roots, Armaros the release of
spells, and Baraqiel astrologers, and Kokabiel portents, and Tamiel taught
astrology, and Asradel taught the path of the Moon.
8.4 And, at the destruction on the Earth, men cried out, and their voices reached
9.1 And then Michael, Gabriel, Suriel and Uriel, looked down from Heaven, and
saw the mass of blood that was being shed on the Earth, and all the iniquity that
was being done on the Earth.
9.2 And they said to one another: “Let the devastated Earth cry out with the sound
of their cries unto the Gate of Heaven.
9.3 And now, to you, O Holy Ones of Heaven, the souls of men complain, saying:
“Bring our complaint before the Most High.”
9.4 And they said to their Lord, the King: “Lord of Lords, God of Gods, King of
Kings! Your glorious throne endures for all the generations of the world, and Your
Name is Holy and praised for all generations of the world, and is blessed and
9.5 You have made everything, and power over everything is Yours. And
everything is uncovered, and open, in front of You, and You see everything, and
there is nothing that can be hidden from You.
9.6 See then what Azazel has done; how he has taught all iniquity, on the Earth,
and revealed the Eternal Secrets which were made in Heaven.
9.7 And Semyaza has made known spells, he to whom You gave authority to rule
over those who are with him.
9.8 And they went into the daughters of men together, lay with those women,
became unclean, and revealed to them these sins.
9.9 And the women bore giants, and thereby the whole Earth has been filled with
blood and iniquity.
9.10 And now behold, the souls which have died cry out and complain, unto the
Gate of Heaven, and their lament has ascended, and they cannot go out in the face
of the iniquity which is being committed on the Earth.
9.11 And You know everything, before it happens, and You know this, and what
concerns each of them. But You say nothing to us. What ought we to do with
them, about this?”
10.1 And then the Most High, the Great and Holy One, spoke, and sent
Arsyalalyur to the son of Lamech, and said to him:
10.2 “Say to him, in My Name; hide yourself! And reveal to him the end, which is
coming, because the whole Earth will be destroyed. A deluge is about to come on
all the Earth; and what is in it will be destroyed.
10.3 And now teach him, so that he may escape, and his offspring may survive for
the whole Earth.”
10.4 “And further”, the Lord said to Raphael, “Bind Azazel by his hands and his
feet and throw him into the darkness. And split open the desert, which is in
Dudael, and throw him there.
10.5 And, throw on him jagged and sharp stones, and cover him with darkness.
And let him stay there for ever. And cover his face so that he may not see the light.
10.6 And so that, on the Great Day of Judgement, he may be hurled into the fire.
10.7 And restore the Earth which the Angels have ruined. And announce the
restoration of the Earth. For I shall restore the Earth, so that not all the sons of
men shall be destroyed, through the mystery of everything which the Watchers
made known, and taught to their sons.
10.8 And the whole Earth has been ruined by the teaching of the works of Azazel;
and against him write: ALL SIN.”
10.9 And the Lord said to Gabriel: “Proceed against the bastards, and the
reprobates, and against the sons of the fornicators. And destroy the sons of the
fornicators, and the sons of the Watchers, from amongst men. And send them out,
and send them against one another, and let them destroy themselves in battle; for
they will not have length of days.
10.10 And they will all petition you, but their fathers will gain nothing in respect
of them, for they hope for eternal life, and that each of them will live life for five
10.11 And the Lord said to Michael: “Go, inform Semyaza, and the others with
him, who have associated with the women to corrupt themselves with them, in all
10.12 When all their sons kill each other, and when they see the destruction of
their beloved ones, bind them for seventy generations, under the hills of the Earth,
until the day of their judgement, and of their consummation, until the Judgement,
which is for all eternity, is accomplished.
10.13 And in those days, they will lead them to the Abyss of Fire; in torment, and
in prison they will be shut up for all eternity.
10.14 And then Semyaza will be burnt, and from then on, destroyed with them;
together they will be bound until the end of all generations.
10.15 And destroy all the souls of lust, and the sons of the Watchers, for they have
10.16 Destroy all wrong from the face of the Earth and every evil work will cease.
And let the plant of righteousness and truth appear, and the deed will become a
blessing; righteousness and truth will they plant, in joy, for ever.
10.17 And now, all the righteous will be humble, and will live until they beget
thousands. And all the days of their youth, and their Sabbaths, they will fulfil in
10.18 And, in those days, the whole Earth will be tilled in righteousness, and all of
it will be planted with trees; and it will be filled with blessing.
10.19 And all the pleasant trees they will plant on it, and they will plant on it
vines. And the vine that is planted on it will produce fruit in abundance; and every
seed that is sown on it, each measure will produce a thousand, and each measure of
olives will produce ten baths of oil.
10.20 And you; cleanse the Earth from all wrong, and from all iniquity, and from
all sin, and from all impiety, and from all the uncleanness, which is brought about
on the Earth; remove them from the Earth.
10.21 And all the sons of men shall be righteous, and all the nations shall serve and
bless Me, and all shall worship Me.
10.22 And the Earth will be cleansed from all corruption, and from all sin, and
from all wrath, and from all torment; and I will not again send a flood upon it, for
all generations, for ever.
11.1 And, in those days, I will open the Storehouses of Blessing, which are in
Heaven; so that I may send them down upon the Earth, upon the work, and upon
the toil of the sons of men.
11.2 Peace and truth will be united, for all the days of eternity, and for all the
generations of eternity.”
12.1 And from everything, Enoch had been hidden, and none of the sons of men
knew where he was hidden, or where he was, or what had happened.
12.2 And all his doings were with the Holy Ones, and with the Watchers, in his
12.3 And I, Enoch, was blessing the Great Lord and the King of Eternity. And
behold, the Watchers called to me, Enoch the scribe, and said to me:
12.4 “Enoch, scribe of righteousness, go and inform the Watchers of Heaven, who
have left the High Heaven and the Holy Eternal Place, and have corrupted
themselves with the women, and have done as the sons of men do, and have taken
wives for themselves, and have become completely corrupt on the Earth.
12.5 They will have on Earth, neither peace, nor forgiveness of sin, for they will
not rejoice in their sons.
12.6 The slaughter of their beloved ones they will see; and over the destruction of
their sons they will lament and petition for ever. But they will have neither mercy
13.1 And Enoch went, and said to Azazel: “You will not have peace. A severe
sentence has come out against you: That you should be bound.
13.2 And, you will have neither rest, nor mercy, nor the granting of any petitions,
because of the wrong which you have taught, and because of all the works of
blasphemy, and wrong, and sin, which you have shown to the sons of men.”
13.3 And then, I went and spoke to them, all together, and they were all afraid;
fear and trembling seized them.
13.4 And they asked me to write out, for them, the record of a petition, so that
they might receive forgiveness, and to take a record of their petition up to the Lord
13.5 For they were not able, from then on, to speak, and they did not raise their
eyes to Heaven, out of shame for the sins for which they had been condemned.
13.6 And then I wrote out the record of their petition, and their supplication, in
regard to their spirits, and the deeds of each one of them, and in regard to what
they asked; that they should obtain absolution and forbearance.
13.7 And I went and sat down, by the waters of Dan, in Dan, which is southwest of
Hermon; and I read out the record of their petition, until I fell asleep.
13.8 And behold a dream came to me, and visions fell upon me, and I saw a vision
of wrath that I should speak to the sons of Heaven, and reprove them.
13.9 And I woke up, and went to them, and they were all sitting gathered
together, as they mourned, in Ubelseyael, which is between Lebanon and Senir,
with their faces covered.
13.10 And I spoke in front of them, all the visions that I had seen in my sleep, and I
began to speak these words of righteousness, and to reprove the Watchers of
14.1 This book is the Word of Righteousness, and of Reproof, for the Watchers
who are from Eternity; as the Holy and Great One commanded in that vision.
14.2 I saw in my sleep what I will now tell, with the tongue of flesh, and with my
breath, which the Great One has given men in the mouth, so that they might speak
with it, and understand with the heart.
14.3 As He has created, and appointed, men to understand the word of
knowledge; so He created, and appointed, me to reprove the Watchers, the sons of
14.4 “And I wrote out your petition, but in my vision, thus it appeared, that your
petition would not be granted to you, for all the days of eternity; and complete
judgement has been decreed against you, and you will not have peace.
14.5 And from now on, you will not ascend into Heaven, for all eternity, and it has
been decreed that you are to be bound, in the Earth, for all the days of eternity.
14.6 And before this, you will have seen the destruction of your beloved sons, and
you will not be able to enjoy them, but they will fall before you by the sword.
14.7 And your petition will not be granted, in respect of them; or in respect of
yourselves. And while you weep, and supplicate, you do not speak a single word
from the writings which I have written.”
14.8 And the vision appeared to me as follows: – Behold; clouds called me in the
vision, and mist called me. And the path of the stars, and flashes of lightning,
hastened me and drove me. And in the vision, winds caused me to fly, and
hastened me, and lifted me up into the sky.
14.9 And I proceeded, until I came near a wall which was made of hailstones, and a
tongue of fire surrounded it, and it began to make me afraid.
14.10 And I went into the tongue of fire, and came near to a large house, which
was built of hailstones, and the wall of that house was like a mosaic of hailstones,
and its floor was snow.
14.11 Its roof was like the path of the stars, and flashes of lightning, and among
them were fiery cherubim, and their sky was like water.
14.12 And, there was a fire burning around its wall, and its door was ablaze with
14.13 And I went into that house, and it was as hot as fire and as cold as snow, and
there was neither pleasure nor life in it. Fear covered me and trembling took hold
14.14 And, as I was shaking and trembling, I fell on my face.
14.15 And I saw in the vision; and behold, another house, which was larger than
the former, and all its doors were open before me, and it was built of a tongue of
14.16 And in everything, it so excelled in glory, and splendor, and size, so that I
am unable to describe to you its glory and its size.
14.17 And its floor was fire, and above lightning and the path of the stars, and its
roof also was a burning fire.
14.18 And I looked, and I saw in it, a high throne, and its appearance was like ice,
and its surrounds like the shining Sun, and the sound of Cherubim.
14.19 And, from underneath the high throne, there flowed out rivers of burning
fire, so that it was impossible to look at it.
14.20 And He who is Great in Glory, sat upon it, and His raiment was brighter
than the Sun, and whiter than any snow.
14.21 And no Angel could enter, and at the appearance of the face of Him who is
Honoured and Praised, no creature of flesh could look.
14.22 A sea of fire burnt around Him, and a great fire stood in front of Him, and
none of those around Him came near to Him. Ten thousand times ten thousand,
stood before Him, but He needed no Holy Council.
14.23 And the Holy Ones, who were near to Him, did not leave, by night or day,
and did not depart from Him.
14.24 And, until then, I had been prostrate on my face, as I trembled. And the
Lord called me, with His own mouth, and said to me: “Come here, Enoch, to My
14.25 And He lifted me up and brought me near to the door. And I looked, with
my face down.
15.1 And He answered me, and said to me, with His voice: “Hear! Do not be
afraid, Enoch, you righteous man, and scribe of righteousness. Come here, and
hear My voice.
15.2 And go say, to the Watchers of Heaven, who sent you to petition on their
behalf: “You ought to petition on behalf of men, not men on behalf of you!
15.3 Why have you left the High, Holy, and Eternal Heaven, and lain with the
women, and become unclean with the daughters of men, and taken wives for
yourselves, and done as the sons of the Earth, and begotten giant sons?
15.4 And you were spiritual, Holy, living an eternal life, but you became unclean
upon the women, and begat children through the blood of flesh, and lusted after
the blood of men, and produced flesh and blood, as they do who die and are
15.5 And for this reason I give men wives; so that they might sow seed in them,
and so that children might be born by them, so that deeds might be done on the
15.6 But you, formerly, were spiritual, living an eternal, immortal life, for all the
generations of the world.
15.7 For this reason I did not arrange wives for you; because the dwelling of the
spiritual ones is in Heaven.
15.8 And now, the giants, who were born from body and flesh, will be called Evil
Spirits on the Earth, and on the Earth will be their dwelling.
15.9 And evil spirits came out from their flesh, because from above they were
created, from the Holy Watchers was their origin and first foundation. Evil spirits
they will be on Earth, and ‘Spirits of the Evil Ones’ they will be called.
15.10 And the dwelling of the Spirits of Heaven is Heaven, but the dwelling of the
spirits of the Earth, who were born on the Earth, is Earth.
15.11 And the spirits of the giants do wrong, are corrupt, attack, fight, break on
the Earth, and cause sorrow. And they eat no food, do not thirst, and are not
15.12 And these spirits will rise against the sons of men, and against the women,
because they came out of them in the days of slaughter and destruction.
16.1 And the death of the giants, wherever the spirits have gone out from their
bodies, their flesh will be destroyed, before the Judgement. Thus, they will be
destroyed, until the Day of the Great Consummation is accomplished, upon the
Great Age, upon the Watchers and the impious ones.
16.2 And now, to the Watchers, who sent you to petition on their behalf, who
were formerly in Heaven:
16.3 You were in Heaven, but its secrets had not yet been revealed to you; and a
worthless mystery you knew. This, you made known to women, in the hardness of
your hearts. And through this mystery, the women, and the men, cause evil to
increase on the Earth.
16.4 Say to them therefore: You will not have peace.”
17.1 And they took me to a place where they were like burning fire, and, when
they wished, they made themselves look like men.
17.2 And they led me to a place of storm, and to a mountain, the tip of whose
summit reached to Heaven.
17.3 And I saw lighted places, and thunder in the outermost ends, in its depths a
bow of fire, and arrows, and their quivers, and a sword of fire, and all the flashes of
17.4 And they took me to the Water of Life, as it is called, and to the Fire of the
West, which receives every setting of the Sun.
17.5 And I came to a river of fire, whose fire flows like water, and pours out into
the Great Sea, which is towards the west.
17.6 And I saw all the great rivers, and I reached the Great Darkness, and went
where all flesh walks.
17.7 And I saw the Mountains of the Darkness of Winter, and the place where the
water of all the deeps pours out.
17.8 And I saw the mouths of all the rivers of the Earth, and the mouth of the
18.1 And I saw the storehouses of all the winds, and I saw how, with them, He has
adorned all creation, and I saw the foundations of the Earth.
18.2 And I saw the cornerstone of the Earth. And I saw the four winds which
support the Earth and the sky.
18.3 And I saw how the winds stretch out the height of Heaven, and how they
position themselves between Heaven and Earth; they are the Pillars of Heaven.
18.4 And I saw the winds which turn the sky, and cause the disc of the Sun, and all
the stars, to set.
18.5 And I saw the winds on the Earth, which support the clouds, and I saw the
paths of the Angels. I saw, at the end of the Earth, the firmament of Heaven
18.6 And I went towards the south, and it was burning, day and night, where there
were seven mountains of precious stones, three towards the east, and three
towards the south.
18.7 And those towards the east were of coloured stone, and one was of pearl, and
one of healing stone, and those towards the south, of red stone.
18.8 And the middle one reached to Heaven, like the throne of the Lord, of
stibium, and the top of the throne was of sapphire.
18.9 And I saw a burning fire, and what was in all the mountains.
18.10 And I saw a place there, beyond the great earth; there the waters gathered
18.11 And I saw a deep chasm of the Earth, with pillars of heavenly fire, and I saw
among them, fiery pillars of Heaven, which were falling, and as regards both height
and depth, they were immeasurable.
18.12 And beyond this chasm, I saw a place, and it had neither the sky above it, nor
the foundation of earth below it. There was no water on it, and no birds, but it was
a desert place.
18.13 And a terrible thing I saw there, seven stars, like great burning mountains.
18.14 And, like a spirit questioning me, the Angel said: “This is the place of the
end of Heaven and Earth; this is the prison for the Stars of Heaven and the Host of
18.15 And the stars which roll over the fire, these are the ones which transgressed
the command of the Lord, from the beginning of their rising, because they did not
come out at their proper times.
18.16 And He was angry with them, and bound them until the time of the
consummation of their sin, in the Year of Mystery.”
19.1 And Uriel said to me: “The spirits of the Angels, who were promiscuous
with women, will stand here; and they, assuming many forms, made men unclean,
and will lead men astray, so that they sacrifice to demons as gods. And they will
stand there until the Great Judgement Day, on which they will be judged, so that
an end will be made of them.
19.2 And their wives, having led astray the Angels of Heaven, will become
19.3 And I, Enoch, alone saw the sight, the ends of everything, and no man has
seen what I have seen.
20.1 And these are the names of the Holy Angels who keep Watch.
20.2 Uriel, one of the Holy Angels; namely the Angel of thunder and earthquakes.
20.3 Raphael, one of the Holy Angels; namely the Angel of the spirits of men.
20.4 Raguel, one of the Holy Angels; who takes vengeance on the world, and on
20.5 Michael, one of the Holy Angels; namely the one put in charge of the best
part of mankind, in charge of the nation.
20.6 Saraqael, one of the Holy Angels; who is in charge of the spirits of men who
cause the spirits to sin.
20.7 Gabriel, one of the Holy Angels; who is in charge of the Serpents, and the
Garden, and the Cherubim.
21.1 And I went round to a place where there was nothing made.
21.2 And I saw a terrible thing; neither the High Heaven, nor the firm earth, but a
desert place, prepared and terrible.
21.3 And there, I saw seven Stars of Heaven, bound on it together, like great
mountains, and burning like fire.
21.4 Then I said: “For what sin have they been bound, and why have they been
21.5 And Uriel, one of the Holy Angels, who was with me and led me, spoke to
me and said: “Enoch, about whom do you ask? About whom do you inquire, ask,
21.6 These, are some of the stars, which transgressed the command of the Lord
Most High, and they have been bound here, until ten thousand ages are completed;
the number of the days of their sin.”
21.7 And from there, I went to another place, more terrible than this. And I saw a
terrible thing; there was a great fire there, which burnt and blazed. And the place
had a cleft reaching into the abyss, full of great pillars of fire, which were made to
fall; neither its extent, nor its size, could I see, nor could I see its source.
21.8 Then I said: “How terrible this place is, and how painful to look at!”
21.9 Then Uriel, one of the Holy Angels, who was with me, answered me. He
answered me and said to me: “Enoch, why do you have such fear and terror
because of this terrible place, and before this pain?”
21.10 And he said to me: “This place is the prison of the Angels, and there they
will be held for ever.”
22.1 And from there, I went to another place, and he showed me, in the west, a
large and high mountain, and a hard rock, and four hollow places.
22.2 And inside, it was deep, wide, and very smooth. How smooth are these
hollow places, and deep, and dark to look at!
22.3 Then Raphael, one of the Holy Angels who was with me, answered me, and
said to me: “These hollow places are there so that the spirits, the souls of the dead,
might be gathered into them. For them they were created; so that here they might
gather the souls of the sons of men.
22.4 And these places they made, where they will keep them until the Day of
Judgement, and until their appointed time, and that appointed time will be long,
until the Great Judgement comes upon them.
22.5 And I saw the spirits of the sons of men who were dead; and their voices
reached Heaven and complained.
22.6 Then, I asked Raphael, the Angel who was with me, and said to him: “Whose
is this spirit, whose voice thus reaches Heaven and complains?”
22.7 And he answered me, and said to me, saying: “This spirit is the one that came
out of Abel, whom Cain, his brother, killed. And he will complain about him,
until his offspring are destroyed from the face of the Earth, and, from amongst the
offspring of men, his offspring perish.”
22.8 Then I asked about him, and about judgement on all, and I said: “Why is one
separated from another?”
22.9 And he answered me, and said to me: “These three places were made in
order that they might separate the spirits of the dead. And thus the souls of the
righteous have been separated; this is the spring of water, and on it the light.
22.10 Likewise, a place has been created for sinners, when they die and are buried
in the earth, and judgement has not come upon them during their life.
22.11 And here their souls will be separated for this great torment, until the great
Day of Judgement, and punishment, and torment, for those who curse, for ever,
and of vengeance on their souls. And there He will bind them for ever. Verily, He
is, from the beginning of the world.
22.12 And thus, a place has been separated for the souls of those who complain,
and give information, about their destruction; about when they were killed, in the
days of the sinners.
22.13 Thus a place has been created for the souls of men who are not righteous,
but sinners, accomplished in wrongdoing and with the wrongdoers will be their
lot. But, their souls will not be killed on the Day of Judgement, nor will they rise
22.14 Then I blessed the Lord of Glory, and said: “Blessed be my Lord, the Lord
of Glory and Righteousness, who rules everything for ever.”
23.1 And, from there, I went to another place, towards the west, to the ends of
23.2 And I saw a fire, that burnt and ran, without resting, or ceasing from running,
by day or by night, but continued in exactly the same way.
23.3 And I asked saying: “What is this which has no rest?”
23.4 Then Raguel, one of the Holy Angels, who was with me, answered me, and
said to me: “This burning fire, whose course you saw towards the west, is the fire
of all the Lights of Heaven.”
24.1 And from there, I went to another place of the Earth, and he showed me a
mountain of fire, that blazed day and night.
24.2 And I went towards it and saw seven magnificent mountains. And all were
different from one another, and precious and beautiful stones, and all were
precious, and their appearance glorious, and their form was beautiful. Three
towards the east, one fixed firmly on another, and three towards the south, one on
another, and deep and rugged valleys, no one of which was near another.
24.3 And there was a seventh mountain, in the middle of these, and in their height
they were all like the seat of a throne; and fragrant trees surrounded it.
24.4 And there was, among them, a tree such as which I have never smelt, and
none of them, nor any others, were like it. It smells more fragrant than any
fragrance, and its leaves, and its flowers, and its wood never wither. Its fruit is
good, and its fruit is like bunches of dates on a palm.
24.5 And then I said: “Behold, this beautiful tree! Beautiful to look at, and
pleasant are its leaves, and its fruit very delightful in appearance.”
24.6 And then Michael, one of the Holy and Honoured Angels, who was with me,
and was in charge of them,
25.1 answered me and said to me: “Enoch, why do you ask me about the
fragrance of this tree, and why do you inquire to learn?”
25.2 Then I, Enoch, answered him saying: “I wish to learn about everything, but
especially about this tree.”
25.3 And he answered me, saying: “This high mountain, which you saw, whose
summit is like the Throne of the Lord, is the throne where the Holy and Great
One, the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King, will sit when He comes down to visit
the Earth for good.
25.4 And this beautiful fragrant tree, and no creature of flesh has authority to touch
it until the Great Judgement, when He will take vengeance on all, and bring
everything to a consummation for ever; this will be given to the righteous and the
25.5 From its fruit, life will be given to the chosen; towards the north it will be
planted, in a Holy place, by the house of the Lord, the Eternal King.
25.6 Then they will rejoice, with joy, and be glad in the Holy place. They will
each draw the fragrance of it into their bones, and they will live a long life on
Earth, as your fathers lived. And, in their days, sorrow and pain, and toil and
punishment, will not touch them.”
25.7 Then I blessed the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King, because He has prepared
such things for righteous men, and has created such things, and said that they are to
be given to them.
26.1 And from there, I went to the middle of the Earth, and saw a blessed, well
watered place, which had branches which remained alive, and sprouted, from a
tree which had been cut down.
26.2 And there, I saw a Holy mountain, and under the mountain, to the east of it,
there was water, and it flowed towards the south.
26.3 And I saw towards the east, another mountain, which was of the same height,
and between them, there was a deep and narrow valley; and in it, a stream ran by
26.4 And to the west of this one, was another mountain, which was lower than it
was, and not high; and under it, there was a valley between them. And there were
other deep and dry valleys at the end of the three mountains.
26.5 And all the valleys were deep, and narrow, of hard rock, and trees were
planted on them.
26.6 And I was amazed at the rock, and I was amazed at the valley; I was very
27.1 Then I said: “What is the purpose of this blessed land, which is completely
full of trees, and of this accursed valley in the middle of them?”
27.2 Then Raphael, one of the Holy Angels who was with me, answered me, and
said to me: “This accursed valley is for those who are cursed for ever. Here will
be gathered together all who speak with their mouths against the Lord, words that
are not fitting, and say hard things about His Glory. Here, they will gather them
together, and here will be their place of judgement.
27.3 And in the last days, there will be the spectacle of the Righteous Judgement
upon them, in front of the righteous, for ever, for evermore; here, the merciful
will bless the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King.
27.4 And in the days of the judgement on them, they will bless Him, on account of
His mercy, according as He has assigned to them their lot.”
27.5 Then I myself blessed the Lord of Glory, I addressed Him, and I remembered
His Majesty, as was fitting.
28.1 And from there, I went towards the east, to the middle of the mountain of the
wilderness, and I saw only desert.
28.2 But it was full of trees, from this seed, and water gushed out over it from
28.3 The torrent, which flowed towards the northwest, seemed copious, and from
all sides there went up mist and dew.
29.1 And I went to another place, away from the wilderness; I came near to the
east of this mountain.
29.2 And there, I saw Trees of Judgement, especially vessels of the fragrance of
incense and myrrh, and the trees were not alike.
30.1 And above it, above these, above the mountains of the east, and not far away,
I saw another place; valleys of water, like that which does not fail.
30.2 And, I saw a beautiful tree, and its fragrance was like that of the mastic.
30.3 And by the banks of these valleys I saw fragrant cinnamon. And beyond those
valleys I came towards the east.
31.1 And I saw another mountain on which there were trees, and there flowed out
water, and there flowed out from them, as it were, a nectar whose name is styrax
31.2 And beyond this mountain, I saw another mountain, and on it there were aloe
trees, and those trees were full of a fruit, which is like an almond, and is hard.
31.3 And, when they take this fruit, it is better than any fragrance.
32.1 And after these fragrances, to the north, as I looked over the mountains, I saw
seven mountains full of fine nard, and fragrant trees of cinnamon and pepper.
32.2 And from there, I went over the summits of those mountains, far away to the
east, and I went over the Red Sea, and I was far from it, and I went over the Angel
32.3 And I came to the Garden of Righteousness, and I saw beyond those trees
many large trees growing there, sweet smelling, large, very beautiful and glorious,
the Trees of Wisdom, from which they eat and know great wisdom.
32.4 And it is like the carob tree, and its fruit is like bunches of grapes on a vine,
very beautiful, and the smell of this tree spreads and penetrates afar.
32.5 And I said: “This tree is beautiful! How beautiful and pleasing is its
32.6 And the Holy Angel Raphael, who was with me, answered me and said to me:
“This is the Tree of Wisdom, from which your old father, and aged mother, who
were before you, ate and learnt wisdom; and their eyes were opened, and they
knew that they were naked. And they were driven from the garden.”
33.1 And, from there, I went to the ends of the Earth, and I saw there large
animals, each different from the other, and also birds, which differed in form,
beauty, and call, each different from the other.
33.2 And to the east of these animals, I saw the ends of the Earth, on which Heaven
rests, and the open Gates of Heaven.
33.3 And I saw how the stars of Heaven come out, and counted the Gates out of
which they come, and wrote down all their outlets, for each one, individually,
according to their number. And their names, according to their constellations,
their positions, their times, and their months, as the Angel Uriel, who was with
me, showed me.
33.4 And he showed me everything, and wrote it down, and also their names he
wrote down for me, and their laws and their functions.
34.1 And, from there, I went towards the north, to the ends of the Earth, and
there I saw a great and glorious wonder, at the ends of the whole Earth.
34.2 And there I saw three Gates of Heaven, open in Heaven, through each of
them north winds go out; when they blow there is cold, hail, hoarfrost, snow,
dew, and rain.
34.3 And from one Gate, it blows for good; but when they blow through the other
two Gates, it is with force, and it brings torment over the Earth, and they blow
35.1 And, from there, I went towards the west, to the ends of the Earth, and I saw
there, as I saw in the east, three open Gates; as many Gates and as many outlets.
36.1 And, from there, I went towards the south, to the ends of the Earth, and
there I saw three Gates of Heaven open; and the south wind, and the dew, and the
rain, and wind, come out from there.
36.2 And, from there, I went towards the east of the ends of Heaven, and there I
saw the three eastern Gates of Heaven open, and above them, there were smaller
36.3 Through each of these smaller Gates, the stars of Heaven pass, and go towards
the west, on the path that has been shown to them.
36.4 And when I saw, I blessed, and I will always bless the Lord of Glory, who has
made great and glorious wonders, so that He might show the greatness of His
Work to His Angels, and to the souls of men, so that they might praise His Work.
And so that all His creatures might see the work of His Power, and praise the great
work of His Hands, and bless Him for ever!
37.1 The second vision that he saw, The Vision of Wisdom, which Enoch, the son
of Jared, the son of Malalel, the son of Cainan, the son of Enosh, the son of Seth,
the son of Adam, saw.
37.2 And this is the beginning of the words of wisdom, which I raised my voice to
speak, and say, to those who dwell on the dry ground. Hear, you men of old, and
see, those who come after, the words of the Holy One, which I will speak, in front
of the Lord of Spirits.
37.3 “It would have been better to have said these things before, but from those
who come after, we will not withhold the beginning of wisdom.”
37.4 Until now, there has not been given by the Lord of Spirits, such wisdom as I
have received. In accordance with my insight, in accordance with the wish of the
Lord of Spirits; by whom the lot of eternal life has been given to me.
37.5 And the three parables were imparted to me, and I raised my voice, and said
to those who dwell on the dry ground:
38.1 The First Parable. When the Community of the Righteous appears; and the
sinners are judged for their sins, and are driven from the face of the dry ground.
38.2 And when the Righteous One appears, in front of the Chosen Righteous,
whose works are weighed by the Lord of Spirits. And when light appears to the
righteous, and chosen, who dwell on the dry ground, where will be the dwelling of
the sinners? And where will be the resting-place of those who denied the Lord of
Spirits? It would have been better for them if they had not been born.
38.3 And when the secrets of the righteous are revealed, the sinners will be
judged, and the impious driven from the presence of the righteous and the chosen.
38.4 And, from then on, those who possess the Earth will not be mighty and
exalted. Nor will they be able to look at the face of the Holy Ones, for the light of
the Lord of the Spirits will have appeared on the faces of the Holy, the righteous,
and the chosen.
38.5 And the mighty kings will, at that time, be destroyed, and given into the
hands of the righteous and the Holy.
38.6 And, from then on, none will be able to seek the Lord of Spirits, for their life
will be at an end.
39.1 And it will come to pass, in these days, that the chosen and holy children will
come down from the High Heavens, and their offspring will become one with the
sons of men.
39.2 In those days, Enoch received books of indignation, and anger, and books of
tumult and confusion. “And there will be no mercy for them”, says the Lord of
39.3 And at that time, clouds, and a storm wind, carried me off from the face of
the Earth, and set me down at the end of Heaven.
39.4 And there, I saw another vision; the Dwelling of the Righteous, and the
Resting Places of the Holy.
39.5 There, my eyes saw their dwelling with the Angels, and their resting places
with the Holy Ones, and they were petitioning, and supplicating, and praying, on
behalf of the sons of men. And righteousness, like water, flowed in front of them,
and mercy, like dew on the ground. Thus it is among them for ever and ever.
39.6 And in those days, my eyes saw the Place of the Chosen Ones of
Righteousness and Faith; and there will be righteousness in their days, and the
righteous and chosen will be without number, in front of Him, for ever and ever.
39.7 And I saw their dwelling, under the Wings of the Lord of Spirits, and all the
righteous and chosen shone in front of Him, like the light of fire. And their mouths
were full of blessing, and their lips praised the name of the Lord of Spirits. And
righteousness will not fail in front of Him, and truth will not fail in front of Him.
39.8 There I wished to dwell, and my soul longed for that dwelling; there had my
lot been assigned before, for thus it was decided about me, in front of the Lord of
39.9 And in those days, I praised and exalted the name of the Lord of Spirits, with
blessing and praise, for He has destined me for blessing and praise, in accordance
with the wish of the Lord of Spirits.
39.10 And for a long time my eyes looked at that place, and I blessed Him, and
praised Him, saying: “Blessed is He, and may He be blessed from the beginning,
and for ever!”
39.11 And in His presence there is no end. He knew, before the world was
created, what the world would be; even for all the generations that are to come.
39.12 Those Who Do Not Sleep bless you, and they stand before Your Glory, and
bless, and praise, and exalt, saying: “Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord of Spirits; He fills the
Earth with spirits.”
39.13 And there, my eyes saw all Those Who Do Not Sleep, standing in front of
Him, and blessing, and saying: “Blessed are You, and blessed is the Name of the
Lord, for ever and ever!”
39.14 And my face was transformed until I was unable to see.
40.1 And after this, I saw a thousand thousands, and ten thousand times ten
thousand! A multitude, beyond number or reckoning, who stood in front of the
Glory of the Lord of Spirits.
40.2 I looked, and on the four sides of the Lord of Spirits, I saw four figures,
different from those who were standing; and I learnt their names, because the
Angel, who went with me, made known their names, and showed me all the secret
40.3 And I heard the voices of those four figures as they sang praises in front of the
Lord of Glory.
40.4 The first voice blesses the Lord of Spirits for ever and ever.
40.5 And the second voice I heard blessing the Chosen One, and the chosen, who
depend on the Lord of Spirits.
40.6 And the third voice I heard, petitioned, and prayed, on behalf of those who
dwell on dry ground, and supplicate in the name of the Lord of Spirits.
40.7 And the fourth voice, I heard driving away the Satans, and not allowing them
to come before the Lord of Spirits to accuse those who dwell on the dry ground.
40.8 And, after this, I asked the Angel of Peace, who went with me, and showed
me everything which is secret: “Who are those four figures, whom I have seen,
and whose words I have heard and written down?”
40.9 And he said to me: “This first one is the Holy Michael, the merciful and longsuffering. And the second, who is in charge of all the diseases, and in charge of all
the wounds of the sons of men, is Raphael. And the third, who is in charge of all
the powers, is the Holy Gabriel. And the fourth, who is in charge of the
repentance and hope of those who will inherit eternal life, is Phanuel.”
40.10 And these are the four Angels of the Lord Most High; and the four voices
that I heard in those days.
41.1 And after this, I saw all the secrets of Heaven, and how the Kingdom is
divided, and how the deeds of men are weighed in the Balance.
41.2 There I saw the Dwelling of the Chosen, and the Resting Places of the Holy;
and my eyes saw there all the sinners, who deny the name of the Lord of Spirits,
being driven from there. And they dragged them off, and they were not able to
remain, because of the punishment that went out from the Lord of Spirits.
41.3 And there, my eyes saw the secrets of the flashes of lightning, and of the
thunder. And the secrets of the winds, how they are distributed, in order to blow
over the Earth, and the secrets of the clouds, and of the dew; and there I saw from
where they go out, in that place. And how, from there, the dust of the Earth is
41.4 And there I saw closed storehouses, from which the winds are distributed,
and the storehouse of the hail, and the storehouse of the mist, and the storehouse
of the clouds; and its cloud remained over the Earth, from the beginning of the
41.5 And I saw the Chambers of the Sun, and the Moon, where they go out, and
where they return. And their glorious return; and how one is more honoured than
the other is. And their magnificent course, and how they do not leave their course,
neither adding nor subtracting from their course. And how they keep faith in one
another; observing their oath.
41.6 And the Sun goes out first, and completes its journey at the command of the
Lord of Spirits; and His Name endures for ever and ever.
41.7 And, after this, is the hidden, and visible, path of the Moon, and it travels the
course of its journey, in that place, by day and by night. One stands opposite the
other, in front of the Lord of Spirits, and they give thanks, and sing praise, and do
not rest, because their thanksgiving is like rest to them.
41.8 For the shining Sun makes many revolutions; for a blessing and for a curse.
And the path, of the journey of the Moon, is for the righteous, light, but for the
sinners, darkness. In the Name of the Lord, who has created a division between
light and darkness, and has divided the spirits of men, and has established the spirits
of the righteous, in the name of His Righteousness.
41.9 For no Angel hinders, and no power is able to hinder, because the Judge sees
them all, and judges them all Himself.
42.1 Wisdom, found no place where she could dwell, and her dwelling was in
42.2 Wisdom went out, in order to dwell among the sons of men, but did not find
a dwelling; wisdom returned to her place, and took her seat in the midst of the
42.3 And Iniquity came out from her chambers; those whom she did not seek, she
found, and dwelt among them, like rain in the desert, and like dew on the parched
43.1 And again, I saw flashes of lightning, and the Stars of Heaven, and I saw how
He called them all by their names, and they obeyed Him.
43.2 And I saw the Balance of Righteousness; how they are weighed according to
their light, according to the width of their areas, and the day of their appearing.
And how their revolutions produce lightning; and I saw their revolutions,
according to the number of the Angels, and how they keep faith with one another.
43.3 And I asked the Angel, who went with me and showed me what is secret:
“What are these?”
43.4 And he said to me: “Their likeness, the Lord of Spirits has shown to you;
these are the names of the righteous, who dwell on the dry ground, and believe in
the name of the Lord of Spirits for ever and ever.”
44.1 And other things I saw, concerning lightning, how some of the stars rise, and
become lightning, but cannot lose their form.
45.1 And this is The Second Parable. About those who deny the Name of the
Dwelling of the Holy Ones, and of the Lord of Spirits.
45.2 They will not ascend into Heaven, nor will they come upon the Earth; such
will be the lot of the sinners who deny the Name of the Lord of Spirits, who will
thus be kept for the Day of Affliction and Distress.
45.3 “On that day the Chosen One will sit on the Throne of Glory and will choose
their works. And their resting places will be without number, and their spirits,
within them, will grow strong when they see My Chosen One, and those who
appeal to My Holy and Glorious Name.
45.4 And on that day, I will cause My Chosen One to dwell among them, and I will
transform Heaven and make it an Eternal Blessing and Light.
45.5 And I will transform the dry ground, and make it a blessing, and I will cause
My Chosen Ones to dwell upon it; but those who commit sin and evil will not
tread upon it.
45.6 For I have seen, and have satisfied with peace, My Righteous Ones, and have
placed them in front of Me; but for the sinners My Judgement draws near, so that I
may destroy them from the face of the Earth.”
46.1 And there, I saw one who had a Head of Days, and his head was white like
wool. And with him there was another, whose face had the appearance of a man,
and his face was full of grace, like one of the Holy Angels.
46.2 And I asked one of the Holy Angels, who went with me, and showed me all
the secrets, about that Son of Man, who he was, and from where he was, and why
he went with the Head of Days.
46.3 And he answered me, and said to me: “This is the Son of Man who has
righteousness, and with whom righteousness dwells. He will reveal all the
treasures of that which is secret, for the Lord of Spirits has chosen him, and
through uprightness, his lot has surpassed all others, in front of the Lord of Spirits,
46.4 And this Son of Man, who you have seen, will rouse the kings and the
powerful from their resting places, and the strong from their thrones, and will
loose the reins of the strong, and will break the teeth of the sinners.
46.5 And he will cast down the kings from their thrones, and from their kingdoms,
for they do not exalt Him, and do not praise Him, and do not humbly acknowledge
from where their kingdom was given to them.
46.6 And he will cast down the faces of the strong, and shame will fill them, and
darkness will be their dwelling, and worms will be their resting place. And they
will have no hope of rising from their resting-places, for they do not exalt the
Name of the Lord of Spirits.
46.7 And these are they who judge the Stars of Heaven, and raise their hands
against the Most High, and trample upon the dry ground, and dwell upon it. And
all their deeds show iniquity, and their power rests on their riches, and their faith is
in their gods, that they have made with their hands, and they deny the Name of the
Lord of Spirits.
46.8 And they will be driven from the houses of His Congregation, and of the
faithful, who depend on the Name of the Lord of Spirits.
47.1 And, in those days, the prayer of the righteous, and the blood of the
righteous, will have ascended from the Earth, in front of the Lord of Spirits.
47.2 In these days, the Holy Ones, who live in Heaven above, will unite with one
voice, and supplicate, and pray, and praise, and give thanks, and bless, in the Name
of the Lord of Spirits. Because of the blood of the righteous that has been poured
out. And because of the prayer of the righteous, so that it may not cease in front of
the Lord of Spirits, so that justice might be done to them, and that their patience
may not have to last for ever.”
47.3 And in those days, I saw the Head of Days sit down on the Throne of His
Glory, and the Books of the Living were opened, in front of Him, and all His Host,
which dwell in the Heavens above, and His Council were standing in front of Him.
47.4 And the hearts of the Holy Ones were full of joy, that the Number of
Righteousness had been reached, and the prayer of the righteous had been heard,
and the blood of the righteous had been required, in front of the Lord of Spirits.
48.1 And in that place, I saw an inexhaustible Spring of Righteousness, and many
Springs of Wisdom surrounded it, and all the thirsty drank from them, and were
filled with wisdom, and their dwelling was with the Righteous, and the Holy, and
48.2 And at that hour, that Son of Man was named in the presence of the Lord of
Spirits, and named in front of the Head of Days.
48.3 Even before the Sun and the constellations were created, before the Stars of
Heaven were made, his name was named in front of the Lord of Spirits.
48.4 He will be a staff to the Righteous, and the Holy, so that they may lean on
him and not fall, and he will be the Light of the Nations, and he will be the hope of
those who grieve in their hearts.
48.5 All those who dwell upon the dry ground, will fall down and worship, in
front of Him, and they will bless, and praise, and celebrate with psalms, the name
of the Lord of Spirits.
48.6 And because of this, he was chosen, and hidden in front of Him, before the
World was created, and for ever.
48.7 But the wisdom of the Lord of Spirits, has revealed him to the holy and the
righteous, for He has kept safe the lot of the righteous, for they have hated, and
rejected, this world of iniquity. And all its works, and its ways, they have hated, in
the name of the Lord of Spirits. For in His Name they are saved, and He is the one
who will require their lives.
48.8 And in those days, the kings of the Earth, and the strong, who possess the dry
ground, will have downcast faces, because of the works of their hands, for on the
day of their distress and trouble, they will not save themselves.
48.9 “And I will give them into the hands of My Chosen Ones; like straw in the
fire, and like lead in water, so they will burn in front of the Righteous, and sink in
front of the Holy, and no trace will be found of them.”
48.10 And on the day of their trouble, there will be rest on the Earth, and they will
fall down in front of them and will not rise. And there will be no one, who will
take them with his hands, and raise them, for they denied the Lord of Spirits and
His Messiah. May the Name of the Lord of Spirits be blessed!
49.1 For wisdom has been poured out like water, and glory will not fail in front of
Him, for ever and ever.
49.2 For he is powerful in all the secrets of righteousness, and iniquity will pass
away like a shadow, and will have no existence; for the Chosen One stands in front
of the Lord of Spirits, and His Glory is for ever and ever, and His Power for all
49.3 And in him dwells the spirit of wisdom, and the spirit that gives
understanding, and the spirit of knowledge, and of power, and the spirit of those
who sleep in righteousness.
49.4 And he will judge the things that are secret, and no one will be able to say an
idle word in front of him, for he has been chosen in front of the Lord of Spirits, in
accordance with His wish.
50.1 And, in those days, a change will occur for the Holy and the Chosen; the
Light of Days will rest upon them, and glory and honour will return to the Holy.
50.2 And, on the Day of Trouble, calamity will be heaped up over the sinners, but
the righteous will conquer, in the Name of the Lord of Spirits, and he will show
this to others so that they might repent, and abandon the works of their hands.
50.4 And he is righteous, in his judgement, and in front of his glory, iniquity will
not be able to stand against his judgement; he who does not repent will be
50.5 “And from then on I will not have mercy on them,” says the Lord of Spirits.
51.1 And in those days, the Earth will return that which has been entrusted to it,
and Sheol will return that which has been entrusted to it, and that which it has
received. And destruction will return what it owes.
51.2 And He will choose the righteous, and the holy, from among them; for the
day has come near when they must be saved.
51.3 And in those days, the Chosen One will sit on His Throne, and all the Secrets
of Wisdom will flow out from the council of his mouth, for the Lord of Spirits has
appointed him and glorified him.
51.4 And in those days, the mountains will leap like rams, and the hills will skip
like lambs satisfied with milk, and all will become Angels in Heaven.
51.5 Their faces will shine with joy, for in those days the Chosen One will have
risen, and the Earth will rejoice. And the righteous will dwell upon it, and the
chosen will walk upon it.
52.1 And, after those days, in that place where I had seen all the visions of that
which is secret, for I had been carried off by a whirlwind, and they had brought me
to the west.
52.2 There, my eyes saw the Secrets of Heaven; everything that will occur on
Earth: a mountain of iron, and a mountain of copper, and a mountain of silver, and
a mountain of gold, and a mountain of soft metal, and a mountain of lead.
52.3 And I asked the Angel, who went with me, saying: “What are these things
which I have seen in secret?”
52.4 And he said to me: “All these things, which you have seen, serve the
authority of His Messiah, so that he may be strong and powerful on the Earth.”
52.5 And that Angel of Peace answered me, saying: “Wait a little and you will see,
and everything which is secret, which the Lord of Spirits has established, will be
revealed to you.
52.6 And these mountains, that you have seen; the mountain of iron, and the
mountain of copper, and the mountain of silver, and the mountain of gold, and the
mountain of soft metal, and the mountain of lead. All these, in front of the Chosen
One, will be like wax before fire, and, like the water that comes down from above
onto these mountains, they will be weak under his feet.
52.7 And it will come to pass, in those days, that neither by gold, nor by silver,
will men save themselves; they will be unable to save themselves, or to flee.
52.8 And there will be neither iron for war, nor material for a breastplate; bronze
will be no use, and tin will be of no use, and will count for nothing, and lead will
not be wanted.
52.9 All these will be wiped out, and destroyed, from the face of the Earth, when
the Chosen One appears in front of the Lord of Spirits.”
53.1 And there, my eyes saw a deep valley, and its mouth was open; and all those
who dwell upon dry ground, and the sea, and the islands, will bring gifts, and
presents, and offerings, to Him, but that deep valley will not become full.
53.2 And their hands commit evil, and everything, at which the righteous toil, the
sinners evilly devour; and so the sinners will be destroyed from in front of the Lord
of Spirits, and will be banished from the face of His Earth, unceasingly for ever and
53.3 For I saw the Angels of Punishment going and preparing all the instruments of
53.4 And I asked the Angel of Peace, who went with me, and I said to him: “These
instruments; for whom are they preparing them?”
53.5 And he said to me: “They are preparing these for the kings, and the powerful
of this Earth, so that by means of them they may be destroyed.
53.6 And, after this, the Righteous and Chosen One, will cause the house of His
Congregation to appear; from then on, in the Name of the Lord of Spirits, they
will not be hindered.
53.7 And in front of him, these mountains will not be firm like the earth, and the
hills will be like a spring of water; and the righteous will have rest from the ill treatment of the sinners.”
54.1 And I looked, and turned to another part of the Earth, and I saw there a deep
valley with burning fire.
54.2 And they brought the kings, and powerful, and threw them into that valley.
54.3 And there, my eyes saw how they made instruments for them; iron chains of
54.4 And I asked the Angel of Peace, who went with me, saying: “These chain
instruments; for whom are they being prepared?”
54.5 And he said to me: “These are being prepared for the hosts of Azazel, so that
they may take them, and throw them into the lowest part of hell, and they will
cover their jaws with rough stones, as the Lord of Spirits commanded.
54.6 And Michael and Gabriel, Raphael and Phanuel; these will take hold of them
on that great day. And throw them, on that day, into the furnace of burning fire,
so that the Lord of Spirits may take vengeance on them, for their iniquity, in that
they became servants of Satan, and led astray those who dwell upon the dry
54.7 And in those days, the punishment of the Lord of Spirits will go out, and all
the storehouses of the waters, which are above the sky, and under the earth, will be
54.8 And all the waters will be joined with the waters that are above the sky. The
water that is above the sky is male, and the water that is under the Earth is female.
54.9 And all those who dwell upon the dry ground, and those who dwell under the
ends of Heaven, will be wiped out.
54.10 And because of this, they will acknowledge their iniquity, which they have
committed on the Earth, and through this they will be destroyed.”
55.1 And, after this, the Head of Days repented, and said: “I have destroyed, to no
purpose, all those who dwell upon the dry ground.”
55.2 And He swore, by His Great Name: “From now on, I will not act like this
towards all those who dwell upon the dry ground. And I will put a sign in Heaven,
and it will be a pledge of faith between Me and them, for ever, so long as Heaven is
above the Earth.
55.3 And this will be in accordance with My command. When I want to take hold
of them, with the hands of the Angels, on the day of distress and pain, in the face of
My anger, and My wrath; My wrath and anger will remain upon them” says the
Lord, The Lord of Spirits.
55.4 “You powerful kings, who dwell upon the dry ground, will be obliged to
watch My Chosen One sit down on the throne of My Glory, and judge, in the
Name of the Lord of Spirits, Azazel, and all his associates, and all his hosts.”
56.1 And I saw there, the hosts of the Angels of Punishment, as they went, and
they were holding chains of iron and bronze.
56.2 And I asked the Angel of Peace, who went with me, saying: “To whom are
those who are holding the chains going?”
56.3 And he said to me: “Each to his own chosen ones, and to their beloved ones,
so that they may be thrown into the chasm, in the depths of the valley.
56.4 And then that valley will be filled with their chosen and beloved ones, and the
days of their life will be at an end, and the days of their leading astray will no
longer be counted.
56.5 And in those days, the Angels will gather together, and will throw themselves
towards the east, upon the Parthians and Medes. They will stir up the kings, so
that a disturbing spirit will come upon them, and they will drive them from their
thrones. And they will come out like lions from their lairs, and like hungry wolves
in the middle of their flocks.
56.6 And they will go up and trample on the land of My Chosen Ones, and the
land of My Chosen Ones will become before them a tramping-ground, and a
56.7 But the City of My Righteous Ones will be a hindrance to their horses, and
they will stir up slaughter amongst themselves, and their own right hand will be
strong against them. And a man will not admit to knowing his neighbour, or his
brother, nor a son his father, or his mother, until, through their death, there are
corpses enough, and their punishment; it will not be in vain.
56.8 And in those days Sheol will open its mouth, and they will sink into it, and
their destruction; Sheol will swallow up the sinners before the faces of the chosen.”
57.1 And it came to pass, after this, that I saw another host of chariots, with men
riding on them, and they came upon the wind, from the east, and from the west, to
57.2 And the sound of the noise of their chariots was heard. And when this
commotion occurred, the Holy Ones observed it from Heaven, and the Pillars of
the Earth were shaken from their foundations. And the sound was heard, from the
ends of the Earth, to the ends of Heaven, throughout one day.
57.3 And all will fall down and worship the Lord of Spirits. And this is the end of
The Second Parable.
58.1 And I began to speak The Third Parable. About The Righteous and about The
58.2 Blessed are you, the righteous and the chosen, for your lot will be glorious!
58.3 And the righteous will be in the light of the Sun, and the chosen in the light of
eternal life. And there will be no end to the days of their life. And the days of the
Holy will be without number.
58.4 And they will seek the light, and will find righteousness with the Lord of
Spirits. Peace be to the righteous with the Lord of the World!
58.5 And, after this, it will be said to the Holy that they should seek in Heaven the
secrets of righteousness, the lot of faith; for it has become bright as the Sun upon
the dry ground, and darkness has passed away.
58.6 And there will be ceaseless light, and to a limit of days they will not come, for
darkness will have been destroyed previously. And the light will endure, in front
of the Lord of Spirits, and the light of uprightness will endure, in front of the Lord
of Spirits, for ever.
59.1 And, in those days, my eyes saw the Secrets of the Flashes of Lightning, and
the Lights, and the regulations governing them; and they flash for a blessing, or a
curse, as the Lord of Spirits wishes.
59.2 And there, I saw the secrets of the thunder, and how, when it crashes in
Heaven above, the sound of it is heard. And they showed me the dwellings of the
dry ground, and the sound of the thunder, for peace, and for blessing, or for a
curse, according to the word of the Lord of Spirits.
59.3 And after this, all the secrets of the lights, and of the flashes of lightning, were
shown to me. They flash to bring blessing and satisfaction.
60.1 In the five-hundredth year, in the seventh month, on the fourteenth day of the
month, in the life of Noah. In that parable, I saw how the Heaven of Heavens was
shaken violently, and the Host of the Most High, and the Angels, a thousand
thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand, were extremely disturbed.
60.2 And then I saw the Head of Days, sitting on the Throne of His Glory, and the
Angels and righteous were sitting around Him.
60.3 And a great trembling seized me, and fear took hold of me, and my loins
collapsed and gave way, and my whole being melted, and I fell upon my face.
60.4 And the Holy Michael sent another Holy Angel, one of the Holy Angels, and
he raised me, and when he raised me, my spirit returned, for I had been unable to
endure the sight of that host, and the disturbance, and the shaking of Heaven.
60.6 And when the Day, and the Power, and the Punishment, and the Judgement
come, that the Lord of Spirits has prepared, for those who worship the Righteous
Judge, and for those who deny the Righteous Judgement, and for those who take
His Name in vain; and that Day has been prepared: For the chosen a covenant but
for the sinners a visitation.
60.7 And on that day, two monsters will be separated from one another, a female
monster whose name is Leviathan, to dwell in the depths of the sea, above the
springs of the waters.
60.8 And the name of the male is Behemoth, who occupies, with his breast, a
desert that cannot be seen, named Dendayn, on the east of the Garden where the
chosen and the righteous dwell. Where my great-grandfather was received, who
was seventh from Adam, the first man, whom the Lord of Spirits made.
60.9 And I asked that other Angel to show me the power of those monsters, how
they were separated on one day, and thrown, one into the depths of the sea, and
the other on to the dry ground of the desert.
60.10 And he said to me: “Son of man, you here wish to know what is secret.”
60.11 And the other Angel spoke to me, the one who went with me and showed
me what is secret; what is first, and last, in Heaven, in the heights, and under the
dry ground, in the depths, and at the Ends of Heaven, and at the Foundations of
Heaven, and in the Storehouses of the Winds.
60.12 And, how the winds are distributed, and how they are weighed. And how
the springs, and the winds, are counted according to the power of their spirit. And
the power of the light of the Moon. And the divisions of the stars according to
their names. And how all the divisions are made.
60.13 And the thunder; according to the places where it falls. And all the divisions
that are made in lightning; so that it may flash. And its hosts; how they quickly
60.14 For the thunder has fixed intervals, which have been given to its sound, for
waiting. And the thunder and the lightning are not separate; although not the
same. Through a spirit, the two of them move inseparably.
60.15 For when the lightning flashes, the thunder utters its voice, and the spirit, at
the proper time, causes it to rest, and divides equally between them, because the
storehouse of the times, for their occurrence, is like that of the sand. And each of
them, at the proper time, is held by a rein, and turned back by the power of the
spirit, and likewise driven forward, according to the number of the regions of the
60.16 And the spirit of the sea is male, and strong, and according to the power of
its strength, the spirit turns it back with a rein, and likewise it is driven forward,
and scattered amongst all the mountains of the Earth.
60.17 And the spirit of the hoarfrost is its own Angel; and the spirit of the hail, is a
60.18 And the spirit of the snow has withdrawn, because of its power, and it has a
special spirit, and that which rises from it, is like smoke, and its name is frost.
60.19 And the spirit of the mist, is not associated with them in their storehouse,
but has a special storehouse; for its course is both in light and darkness, and in
winter and in summer, and its storehouse is an Angel.
60.20 The spirit of the dew has its dwelling at the ends of Heaven, and is
connected with the storehouses of the rain. And its course is in winter, and in
summer, and its clouds. And, the clouds of the mist are associated, and one gives
to the other.
60.21 And when the spirit of the rain moves from its storehouse, the Angels come
and open the storehouse, and bring it out. And, when it is scattered over all the
dry ground, it joins with all the water that is on the dry ground. And, whenever it
joins with the water that is on the dry ground,
60.22 For the waters are for those who dwell upon the dry ground, for they are
nourishment for the dry ground, from the Most High who is in Heaven. Therefore,
there is a fixed measure for the rain, and the Angels comprehend it.
60.23 All these things, I saw towards the Garden of Righteousness.
60.24 And the Angel of Peace, who was with me, said to me: “These two
monsters, prepared in accordance with the greatness of the Lord, will feed them
that punishment of the Lord. And children will be killed with their mothers, and
sons with their fathers.
60.25 When the punishment of the Lord of Spirits rests upon them, it will remain
resting, so that the punishment of the Lord of Spirits may not come in vain upon
these. Afterwards, the judgement will be according to His mercy and His
61.1 And, in those days, I saw long cords given to those Angels, and they acquired
wings for themselves, and flew, and went towards the north.
61.2 And I asked the Angel, saying: “Why did these take the long cords, and go?”
And he said to me: “They went so that they may measure.”
61.3 And the Angel, who went with me, said to me: “These will bring the
measurements of the righteous, and the ropes of the righteous, to the righteous, so
that they may rely on the Name of the Lord of Spirits, for ever and ever.
61.4 The chosen will begin to dwell with the chosen, and these measurements will
be given to faith, and will strengthen righteousness.
61.5 And these measurements will reveal all the secrets of the depths of the Earth,
and those who were destroyed by the desert, and those who were devoured by the
fish of the sea, and by animals, so that they may return, and rely on the Day of the
Chosen One. For no one will be destroyed, in front of the Lord of Spirits, and no
one can be destroyed.”
61.6 And all those in the Heavens above, received a command, and power, and one
voice; and one light, like fire, was given to them.
61.7 And Him before everything, they blessed, and exalted, and praised, in
wisdom. And they showed themselves wise, in speech, and in the spirit of life.
61.8 And the Lord of Spirits, set the Chosen One on the Throne of His Glory, and
he will judge all the works of the Holy ones in Heaven above, and in the Balance he
will weigh their deeds.
61.9 And when he lifts his face, to judge their secret ways, according to the word
of the Name of the Lord of Spirits, and their path according to the way of the
Righteous Judgement of the Lord Most High, they will all speak with one voice,
and bless, and praise, and exalt, and glorify, the Name of the Lord of Spirits.
61.10 And He will call all the Host of the Heavens, and all the Holy Ones above,
and the Host of the Lord, the Cherubim, and the Seraphim, and the Ophannim,
and all the Angels of Power, and all the Angels of the Principalities, and the Chosen
One, and the other host, that is upon the dry ground, and over the water, on that
61.11 And they will raise one voice, and will bless, and praise, and glorify, and
exalt, in the spirit of faith, and in the spirit of wisdom, and of patience, and in the
spirit of mercy, and in the spirit of justice, and of peace, and in the spirit of
goodness. And they will all say with one voice: “Blessed is He, and blessed be the
Name of the Lord of Spirits, for ever and ever.”
61.12 All Those Who Do Not Sleep, in Heaven above, will bless Him. All His
Holy Ones, who are in Heaven, will bless Him, and all the chosen ones, who dwell
in the Garden of Life, and every spirit able to bless, and praise and exalt, and
hallow Your Holy Name. And all flesh, which to the limit of its power, will praise,
and bless, Your Name for ever and ever.
61.13 For great is the mercy of the Lord of Spirits, and He is long-suffering; and all
His works, and all His forces, as many as He has made, He has revealed to the
righteous, and the chosen, in the Name of the Lord of Spirits.
62.1 And thus, The Lord commanded the kings, and the mighty, and the exalted,
and those who dwell upon the Earth, and said: “Open your eyes, and raise your
horns, if you are able, to acknowledge the Chosen One.”
62.2 And the Lord of Spirits, sat on His Throne of Glory, and the spirit of
righteousness was poured out on him, and the word of his mouth kills all the
sinners, and all the lawless, and they are destroyed in front of him.
62.3 And on that Day, all the kings, and the mighty, and the exalted, and those
who possess the Earth, will stand up, and they will see, and recognize, how he sits
on the Throne of His Glory. And the righteous are judged, in righteousness, in
front of him, and no idle word is spoken in front of him.
62.4 And pain will come upon them, as upon a woman in labour, for whom giving
birth is difficult, when her child enters the mouth of the womb, and she has
difficulty giving birth.
62.5 And one half of them, will look at the other, and they will be terrified, and
will cast down their faces, and pain will take hold of them, when they see that Son
of Man sitting on the Throne of His Glory.
62.6 And the mighty kings, and all those who possess the Earth, will praise, and
bless, and exalt, Him who rules everything that is hidden.
62.7 For, from the beginning, that Son of Man was hidden, and the Most High kept
him in the presence of His power, and revealed him only to the Chosen.
62.8 And the community, of the Holy and the Chosen, will be sown, and all the
Chosen will stand before him, on that day.
62.9 And all the mighty kings, and the exalted, and those who rule the dry ground,
will fall down before him, on their faces, and worship; and they will set their hopes
on that Son of Man, and will entreat him, and will petition for mercy from him.
62.10 But the Lord of Spirits will then so press them, that they will hasten to go
out from before him, and their faces will be filled with shame and the darkness will
grow deeper on their faces.
62.11 And the Angels of Punishment will take them, so that they may repay them
for the wrong that they did to His children, and to His chosen ones.
62.12 And they will become a spectacle, to the righteous, and to His chosen ones.
They will rejoice over them, for the anger of the Lord of Spirits will rest upon
them, and the sword of the Lord of Spirits will be drunk with them.
62.13 And the righteous, and the chosen, will be saved on that Day, and they will
never see the faces of the sinners, and the lawless, from then on.
62.14 And the Lord of Spirits will remain over them, and with that Son of Man
they will dwell, and eat, and lie down, and rise up, for ever and ever.
62.15 And the righteous and chosen will have risen from the earth, and will have
ceased to cast down their faces, and will have put on the Garment of Life.
62.16 And this will be a Garment of Life from the Lord of Spirits; and your
garments will not wear out, and your glory will not fail, in front of the Lord of
63.1 In those days, the mighty kings, who possess the dry ground, will entreat the
Angels of His Punishment, to whom they have been handed over, so that they
might give them a little respite. And so that they might fall down, and worship, in
front of the Lord of Spirits, and confess their sins in front of Him.
63.2 And they will bless, and praise, the Lord of Spirits, and say: “Blessed be the
Lord of Spirits, and the Lord of Kings, the Lord of the Mighty, and the Lord of the
Rich, and the Lord of Glory, and the Lord of Wisdom!
63.3 And everything secret is clear, in front of You, and Your power is for all
generations, and Your glory is for ever and ever. Deep, and without number, are
all Your secrets, and Your righteousness is beyond reckoning.
63.4 Now, we realize that we ought to praise, and bless, the Lord of Kings, and the
one who is King over all Kings.”
63.5 And they will say: “Would that we might be given a respite, so that we might
praise, and thank, and bless Him, and make our confession in front of His Glory.
63.6 And now, we long for a respite, but do not find it, we are driven off and do
not obtain it; and the light has passed away from before us, and darkness will be
our dwelling, for ever and ever.
63.7 For we have not made our confession before Him, and we have not praised
the name of the Lord of Kings, and we have not praised the Lord for all His works,
but our hopes have been on the sceptre of our kingdom, and of our glory.
63.8 And, on the day of our affliction and distress, He does not save us, and we
find no respite to make our confession, that our Lord is faithful in all His doings,
and in all His judgements, and His justice, and that His judgements show no
respect for persons.
63.9 And we pass away from before Him, because all our works, and all our sins,
have been counted exactly.”
63.10 Then they will say to them: “Our souls are sated with possessions, gained
through iniquity, but they do not prevent our going down into the flames of the
torment of Sheol.”
63.11 And after this, their faces will be filled with darkness and shame, in front of
that Son of Man, and they will be driven away from him. And, the sword will
dwell among them, in front of him.
63.12 And thus says the Lord of Spirits: “This is the Law, and the judgement for
the mighty, and the kings, and the exalted, and for those who possess the dry
ground, in front of the Lord of Spirits.”
64.1 And I saw other figures hidden in that place.
64.2 I heard the voice of the Angel saying: “These are the Angels who came down
from Heaven, onto the Earth, and revealed what is secret to the sons of men, and
led astray the sons of men, so that they committed sin.”
The Book of Noah
65.1 And, in those days, Noah saw the Earth had tilted and that its destruction was
65.2 And he set off from there, and went to the ends of the Earth, and cried out to
his great-grandfather Enoch; and Noah said three times in a bitter voice: “Hear
me, hear me, hear me!”
65.3 And he said to him: “Tell me, what is it that is being done on the Earth, that
the Earth is so afflicted, and shaken, lest I be destroyed with it!”
65.4 And immediately, there was a great disturbance on the Earth, and a voice was
heard from Heaven, and I fell upon my face.
65.5 And my great-grandfather Enoch came, stood by me, and said to me: “Why
did you cry out to me, with such bitter crying and weeping?
65.6 And a command has gone out from the Lord, against those who dwell upon
the dry ground, that this must be their end. For they have learnt all the secrets of
the Angels, and all the wrongdoings of the satans, and all their secret power, and
all the power of those who practice magic arts, and the power of enchantments,
and the power of those who cast molten images for all the Earth.
65.7 And further, how silver is produced from the dust of the Earth, and how soft
metal occurs on the Earth.
65.8 For lead and tin are not produced from the Earth, like the former; there is a
spring which produces them, and an Angel who stands in it, and that Angel
65.9 And after this, my great-grandfather Enoch took hold of me, with his hand,
and raised me, and said to me: “Go, for I have asked the Lord of Spirits about this
disturbance on the Earth.
65.10 And He said to me: “Because of their iniquity, their judgement has been
completed, and they will no longer be counted before Me; because of the sorceries
they have searched out, and learnt, the Earth and those who dwell upon it will be
65.11 And for these there will be no place of refuge, for ever, for they showed to
them what is secret, and they have been condemned; but not so for you, my son,
the Lord of Spirits knows that you are pure, and innocent of this reproach
concerning the secrets.
65.12 And He has established your name among the Holy, and will keep you from
amongst those who dwell upon the dry ground; and He has destined your offspring
in righteousness, to be kings, and for great honours. And from your offspring will
flow out a spring of the Righteous and Holy, without number, for ever.”
66.1 And after this, he showed me the Angels of Punishment, who were ready to
come and release all the forces of the water, which is under the earth, in order to
bring judgement, and destruction, on all those who reside and dwell upon the dry
66.2 And the Lord of Spirits commanded the Angels, who were coming out, not to
raise their hands, but to keep watch; for those Angels were in charge of the forces
of the waters.
66.3 And I came out from before Enoch.
67.1 And in those days, the Word of the Lord came to me, and He said to me:
“Noah, behold; your lot has come up before Me, a lot without reproach, a lot of
love and uprightness.
67.2 And now, the Angels are making a wooden structure, and when the Angels
come out from that task, I will put My Hand on it, and keep it safe, and from it
will come the seed of life. And a change shall take place so that the dry ground
may not remain empty.
67.3 And I will establish your offspring before Me, for ever and ever, and I will
scatter those who dwell with you, over the face of the dry ground. I will not again
put them to the test, on the face of the Earth, but they will be blessed, and increase
on the dry ground, in the Name of the Lord.”
67.4 And they will shut up those Angels, who showed iniquity, in that burning
valley, which my great-grandfather Enoch had shown to me previously, in the
west, near the mountains of gold, and silver, and iron, and soft metal, and tin.
67.5 And I saw that valley, in which there was a great disturbance, and a heaving of
67.6 And when all this happened, from the fiery molten metal, and the
disturbance, which disturbed the waters in that place, a smell of sulphur was
produced, and it was associated with those waters. And that valley, of the Angels
who led men astray, burns under the ground.
67.7 And through the valleys of that same area, flow out rivers of fire, where those
Angels will be punished, who led astray those on the dry ground.
67.8 And in those days, those waters will serve the kings, and the mighty, and the
exalted, and those who dwell upon dry ground, for the healing of soul and body,
but also for the punishment of the spirit. And their spirits are so full of lust, that
they will be punished in their bodies, for they denied the Lord of Spirits. And they
see their punishment every day, yet they do not believe in His Name.
67.9 And the more their bodies are burnt, the more a change will come over their
spirits, for ever and ever; for no one can speak an idle word in front of the Lord of
67.10 For judgement will come upon them, for they believe in the lust of their
bodies, but deny the spirit of the Lord.
68.1 And after this, my great-grandfather Enoch gave me the explanation of all the
secrets, in a book, and the parables that had been given to him; and he put them
together for me in the words of the Book of Parables
68.2 And, on that day, the Holy Michael answered Raphael, saying: “The power
of the spirit seizes me, and makes me tremble, because of the harshness of the
judgement of the secrets, the judgement of the Angels. Who can endure the
harshness of the judgement, which has been executed, and before which they melt
68.3 And the Holy Michael answered Raphael again, and said to him: “Who would
not soften his heart over it, and whose mind would not be disturbed by this word?
Judgement has gone out against them, and upon those who they have led out like
68.4 But it came to pass, when he stood in front of the Lord of Spirits, that the
Holy Michael spoke as follows to Raphael: “I will not take their part, under the
eye of the Lord, for the Lord of Spirits is angry with them because they act as if
they were the Lord.”
68.5 Because of this, the hidden judgement will come upon them, for ever and
ever; for neither any other Angel, nor any man, will receive their lot, but they
alone have received their judgement, for ever and ever.
69.1 And, after this judgement, they will terrify them, and make them tremble, for
they have shown this to those who dwell upon the dry ground.
69.2 And behold the names of those Angels. And these are their names: The first of
them is Semyaza, and the second Artaqifa, and the third Armen, and the fourth
Kokabiel, and the fifth Turiel, and the sixth Ramiel, and the seventh Daniel, and
the eighth Nuqael, and the ninth Baraqiel, and the tenth Azazel, and the eleventh
Armaros, the twelfth Batriel, the thirteenth Basasael, the fourteenth Ananel, the
fifteenth Turiel, the sixteenth Samsiel, the seventeenth Yetarel, the eighteenth
Tumiel, the nineteenth Turiel, the twentieth Rumiel, the twenty-first Azazel.
69.3 And these are the chiefs of their Angels, and the names of the leaders of
hundreds, and their leaders of fifties, and their leaders of tens.
69.4 The name of the first is Yequn; this is the one who led astray the children of
the Angels of Heaven, and he brought them down, onto the dry ground, and led
them astray through the daughters of men.
69.5 And the name of the second is Asbeel; this one suggested an evil plan to the
children of the Holy Angels, and led them astray, so that they corrupted their
bodies with the daughters of men.
69.6 And the name of the third is Gadreel; this is the one that showed all the
deadly blows to the sons of men. And he led astray Eve. And he showed the
weapons of death to the children of men, the shield, and the breastplate, and the
sword for slaughter, and all the weapons of death, to the sons of men.
69.7 And, from his hand, they have gone out against those who dwell on the dry
ground, from that time and for ever and ever.
69.8 And the name of the fourth is Penemue; this one showed the sons of men the
bitter and the sweet, and showed them all the secrets of their wisdom.
69.9 He taught men the art of writing, with ink and paper, and through this many
have gone astray, from eternity to eternity, and to this day.
69.10 For men were not created for this, that they should confirm their faith like
this, with pen and ink.
69.11 For men were created, no differently from the Angels, so that they might
remain righteous and pure, and death, which destroys everything, would not have
touched them; but through this knowledge of theirs they are being destroyed, and
through this power it is consuming them.
69.12 And the name of the fifth is Kasdeyae; this one showed the sons of men all
the evil blows of the spirits, and of the demons, and the blows that attack the
embryo in the womb, so that it miscarries. And the blows that attack the soul, the
bite of the serpent, and the blows that occur at midday, and the son of the serpent
who is strong.
69.13 And this is the task of Kesbeel, the chief of the oath, who showed the oath to
the Holy Ones, when he dwelt on High in Glory, and its name is Beqa.
69.14 And this one told the Holy Michael that he should show him the Secret
Name; so that they might mention it in the oath, so that those, who showed the
sons of men everything that is secret, trembled before that Name and that oath.
69.15 And this is the power of this oath, for it is powerful and strong, and He
placed this oath, Akae, in the charge of the Holy Michael.
69.16 And these are the secrets of this oath, and it is strong; through His oath the
sky was suspended, before the world was created, and for ever.
69.17 And through it, the earth was founded upon the water, and from the hidden
recesses of the mountains come beautiful waters, from the creation of the world,
and for ever.
69.18 And through that oath, the sea was created, and as its foundation, for the
time of anger, He placed for it the sand, and it does not go beyond it, from the
creation of the world, and for ever.
69.19 And through that oath, the deeps were made firm, and they stand and do not
move from their place, from the creation of the world, and for ever.
69.20 And through that oath, the Sun and the Moon complete their course, and do
not transgress their command, from the creation of the world, and for ever.
69.21 And through that oath, the stars complete their course, and He calls their
names, and they answer Him, from the creation of the world, and for ever.
69.22 And likewise, the spirits of the water, of the winds, and of all the breezes,
and their paths, according to all the groups of the spirits.
69.23 And there, are kept the storehouses of the sound of thunder, and of the light
of the lightning. And there, are kept the storehouses of the hail, and the hoarfrost,
and the storehouses of the mist, and the storehouses of the rain and dew.
69.24 And all these make their confession, and give thanks, in front of the Lord of
Spirits, and sing praises with all their power. And their food consists of all their
thanksgiving, and they give thanks, praise, and exalt, in the name of the Lord of
Spirits, for ever and ever.
69.25 And this oath is strong over them, and through it they are kept safe, and
their courses are not disturbed.
69.26 And they had great joy, and they blessed, praised, and exalted, because the
name of that Son of Man had been revealed to them.
69.27 And he sat on the Throne of His Glory, and the whole Judgement was given
to the Son of Man, and he will cause the sinners to pass away and be destroyed
from the face of the Earth.
69.28 And those who led astray the world, will be bound in chains, and will be
shut up in the assembly-place of their destruction, and all their works will pass
away from the face of the Earth.
69.29 And, from then on, there will be nothing corruptible. For that Son of Man
has appeared, and has sat on the Throne of His Glory, and everything evil will pass
away, and go from in front of Him; and the word of that Son of Man will be strong
in front of the Lord of Spirits. This is the Third Parable of Enoch.
70.1 And it came to pass, after this, that while he was living his name was lifted
from those who dwell upon the dry ground, to the presence of that Son of Man,
and to the presence of the Lord of Spirits.
70.2 And he was lifted on the Chariots of the Spirit, and his name vanished from
70.3 And, from that day, I was not counted among them, and He placed me
between two winds, between the north and the west, where the Angels took the
cords, to measure, for me, the place for the Chosen and the Righteous.
70.4 And there, I saw the First Fathers, and the righteous, who, from the
beginning of the world, dwelt in that place.
71.1 And it came to pass, after this, that my spirit was carried off and it went up
into the Heavens. I saw the sons of the Holy Angels treading upon flames of fire,
their garments were white, and their clothing, and the light of their face, was like
71.2 And I saw two rivers of fire, and the light of that fire shone like a hyacinth,
and I fell upon my face, in front of the Lord of Spirits.
71.3 And the Angel Michael, one of the Archangels, took hold of me by my right
hand, and raised me, and led me out to all the secrets of mercy, and the secrets of
71.4 And he showed me all the secrets of the Ends of Heaven, and all the
Storehouses of the Stars, and the Lights, from where they come out, before the
71.5 And the Spirit carried Enoch off to the Highest Heaven, and I saw there, in
the middle of that Light, something built of crystal stones, and in the middle of
those stones, tongues of living fire.
71.6 And my spirit saw a circle of fire, which surrounded that house; from its four
sides came rivers, full of living fire, and they surrounded that house.
71.7 And round about were the Seraphim, and the Cherubim, and the Ophannim;
these are They Who Do Not Sleep but keep watch over the Throne of His Glory.
71.8 And I saw Angels, who could not be counted, a thousand thousands, and ten
thousand times ten thousand, surrounding that house. And Michael, and Raphael,
and Gabriel, and Phanuel, and the Holy Angels who are in the Heavens above,
went in and out of that house.
71.9 And Michael, and Raphael, and Gabriel, and Phanuel, and many Holy Angels
without number, came out from that house.
71.10 And with them, the Head of Days, his head white, and pure, like wool, and
his garments; indescribable.
71.11 And I fell upon my face, and my whole body melted, and my spirit was
transformed; and I cried out in a loud voice, in the spirit of power, and I blessed,
praised, and exalted.
71.12 And these blessings, which came out from my mouth, were pleasing before
that Head of Days.
71.13 And that Head of Days came with Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Phanuel,
and thousands and tens of thousands of Angels without number.
71.14 And that Angel, came to me, and greeted me with his voice, and said to me:
“You are the son of man who was born to righteousness, and righteousness remains
over you, and the righteousness of the Head of Days will not leave you.”
71.15 And he said to me: “He proclaims peace to you, in the name of the world
which is to come, for from there, peace has come out, from the creation of the
world; and so you will have it, for ever, and for ever and ever.
71.16 And, all will walk according to your way, inasmuch as righteousness will
never leave you. With you will be their dwelling, and with you their lot, and they
will not be separated from you, for ever, and for ever and ever.
71.17 And so, there will be length of days, with that Son of Man, and the righteous
will have peace, and the righteous will have an upright way, in the name of the
Lord of Spirits, for ever and ever.”
72.1 The Book of the Revolutions of the Lights of Heaven. Each as it is, according
to their classes, according to their period of rule, and their times, according to
their names, and places of origin, and according to their months. That Uriel, the
Holy Angel who was with me, and is their leader, showed to me. And he showed
me all their books, exactly as they are, for each year of the world, and for ever,
until the new creation shall be made, which will last for ever.
72.2 And this is the First Law of the Lights. The light called the Sun; its rising is in
the Gates of Heaven that are towards the east, and its setting is in the western
Gates of Heaven.
72.3 And I saw six gates from which the Sun rises, and six gates in which the Sun
sets, and the Moon also rises and sets in those gates, and the leaders of the stars,
together with those whom they lead. There are six in the east, and six in the west,
all exactly in place, one next to the other; and there are many windows, to the
right and left of those gates.
72.4 And first there rises the greater light, named the Sun, and its disc is like the
disc of Heaven, and the whole of it is full of a fire, which gives light and warmth.
72.5 The wind blows the chariots on which it ascends, and the Sun goes down in
the sky, and returns through the north, in order to reach the east, and is led so that
it comes to the appropriate gate, and shines again in the sky.
72.6 In this way, it rises in the first month in the large gate, namely; it rises
through the fourth of those six gates that are towards the east.
72.7 And in that fourth gate, through which the Sun rises in the first month, there
are twelve window-openings, from which, whenever they are opened, flames
72.8 When the Sun rises in the sky, it goes out through that fourth gate for thirty
days, and exactly in the fourth gate, in the west of the sky it goes down.
72.9 And in those days, the day grows daily longer, and the night grows nightly
shorter, until the thirtieth morning.
72.10 And on that day, the day becomes longer than the night by a double part,
and the day amounts to exactly ten parts, and the night amounts to eight parts.
72.11 And the Sun rises from that fourth gate, and sets in the fourth gate, and
returns to the fifth gate, in the east, for thirty mornings; and it rises from it, and
sets in the fifth gate.
72.12 And then the day becomes longer by two parts, and the day amounts to
eleven parts, and the night becomes shorter and amounts to seven parts.
72.13 And the Sun returns to the east, and comes to the sixth gate, and rises and
sets in the sixth gates for thirty-one mornings, because of its sign.
72.14 And on that day, the day becomes longer than the night, and the day
becomes double the night; and the day amounts to twelve parts, and the night
becomes shorter, and amounts to six parts.
72.15 And the Sun rises up so that the day may grow shorter, and the night longer;
and the Sun returns to the east, and comes to the sixth gate, and rises from it, and
sets, for thirty mornings.
72.16 And when thirty mornings have been completed, the day becomes shorter,
by exactly one part; and the day amounts to eleven parts, and the night to seven
72.17 And the Sun sets in the west, through that sixth gate, and goes to the east,
and rises in the fifth gate for thirty mornings, and it sets in the west again, in the
fifth gate in the west.
72.18 On that day, the day becomes shorter by two parts, and the day amounts to
ten parts, and the night to eight parts.
72.19 And the Sun rises from that fifth gate, and sets in the fifth gate in the west,
and rises in the fourth gate, for thirty-one mornings, because of its sign, and sets in
72.20 On that day, the day becomes equal with the night, and is of equal length;
and the night amounts to nine parts, and the day to nine parts.
72.21 And the Sun rises from that gate, and sets in the west, and returns to the
east, and rises in the third gate for thirty mornings, and sets in the west in the third
72.22 And the Sun rises from that third gate, and sets in the third gate in the west,
and returns to the east; and the Sun rises in the second gate in the east, for thirty
mornings, and likewise, it sets in the second gate, in the west of the sky.
72.24 And on that day, the night amounts to eleven parts, and the day to seven
72.25 And the Sun rises, on that day, from the second gate, and sets in the west in
the second gate, and returns to the east to the first gate, for thirty-one mornings,
then sets in the west in the first gate.
72.26 And on that day, the night becomes longer, and becomes double the day;
and the night amounts to exactly twelve parts, and the day to six parts.
72.27 And with this, the Sun has completed the divisions of its journey, and it
turns back again, along these divisions of its journey. And it comes through that
first Gate, for thirty mornings, and sets in the west opposite it.
72.28 And on that day, the night becomes shorter in length by one part, and
amounts to eleven parts, and the day to seven parts.
72.29 And the Sun returns, and comes to the second gate in the east, and it returns
along those divisions of its journey, for thirty mornings, rising and setting.
72.30 And, on that day, the night becomes shorter in length, and the night
amounts to ten parts, and the day to eight parts.
72.31 And, on that day, the Sun rises from the second gate, and sets in the west,
and returns to the east, and rises in the third gate, for thirty one mornings, and sets
in the west of the sky.
72.32 And, on that day, the night becomes shorter, and amounts to nine parts, and
the day amounts to nine parts, and the night becomes equal with the day. And the
year amounts to exactly three hundred and sixty-four days.
72.33 And the length of the day, and the night, and the shortness of the day and the
night; they are different because of the journey of the Sun.
72.34 Because of it, its journey becomes daily longer, and nightly shorter.
72.35 And this is the law, and the journey of the Sun, and its return, as often as it
returns; sixty times it returns and rises, that is the Great Eternal Light, which for
ever and ever, is named the Sun.
72.36 And this, that rises, is the Great Light, which is named after its appearance,
as the Lord commanded.
72.37 And thus it rises and sets; it neither decreases, nor rests, but runs day and
night in its chariot. And its light is seven times brighter than that of the Moon, but
in size, the two are equal.
73.1 And after this law, I saw another law, for the lesser light, named the Moon.
73.2 And its disc is like the disc of the Sun, and the wind blows its chariot, on
which it rides, and in fixed measure light is given to it.
73.3 And every month its rising and setting change, and its days are as the days of
the Sun, and when its light is uniformly full, it is a seventh part the light of the Sun.
73.4 And thus it rises, and its first phase is towards the east; it rises on the thirtieth
morning. And on that day it appears, and becomes for you, the first phase of the
Moon, on the thirtieth morning, together with the Sun, in the gate through which
the Sun rises.
73.5 And a half (…..) with a seventh part, and its entire disc is empty, without
light, except for a seventh part, a fourteenth part of its light.
73.6 And, on the day that it receives a seventh part, and a half, of its light, its light
amounts to a seventh, and a seventh part and a half.
73.7 It sets with the Sun, and when the Sun rises, the Moon rises with it, and
receives a half of one part of light. And on that night, at the beginning of its
morning, at the beginning of the Moon’s day, the Moon sets with the Sun, and is
dark on that night, in six and seven parts and a half.
73.8 And it rises on that day, with exactly a seventh part, goes out, recedes from
the rising of the Sun, and becomes bright on the remainder of its days, in the other
six and seven parts.
74.1 And another journey, and law, I saw for it, in that according to this law it
makes its monthly journey.
74.2 And Uriel, the Holy Angel who is leader of them all, showed me everything,
and I wrote down their positions as he showed them to me. And I wrote down
their months, as they are, and the appearance of their light, until fifteen days have
74.3 In seventh parts, it makes all its darkness full, and in seventh parts, it makes
all its light full, in the east, and in the west.
74.4 And in certain months, it changes its setting, and in certain months, it follows
its own individual course.
74.5 In two months it sets with the Sun, in those two gates that are in the middle;
in the third and in the fourth gate.
74.6 It goes out for seven days, and turns back, and returns again to the gate from
which the Sun rises. And in that gate, it makes all its light full, and it recedes from
the Sun, and comes, in eight days, to the sixth gate from which the Sun rises.
74.7 And when the Sun rises from the fourth gate, the Moon goes out for seven
days, until it rises from the fifth gate. And again, it returns in seven days to the
fourth gate, makes all its light full, recedes, and comes to the first gate in eight
74.8 And again it returns, in seven days, to the fourth gate from which the Sun
74.9 Thus I saw their positions; how the Moon rose, and the Sun set, in those days.
74.10 And if five years are added together, the Sun has an excess of thirty days.
For each year, of the five years, there are three hundred and sixty four days.
74.11 And the excess, of the Sun and the stars, comes to six days. In five years,
with six days each, they have an excess of thirty days, and the Moon falls behind the
Sun and the stars by thirty days.
74.12 And the Moon conducts the years exactly, all of them according to their
eternal positions; they are neither early nor late, even by one day, but change the
year in exactly three hundred and sixty-four days.
74.13 In three years, there are one thousand and ninety-two days, and in five years
one thousand eight hundred and twenty days, so that in eight years there are two
thousand nine hundred and twelve days.
74.15 And there are one thousand seven hundred and seventy days, in five years, so
that for the Moon, the days in eight years amount to two thousand eight hundred
and thirty two days.
74.16 For the difference in eight years is eighty days, and all the days that the Moon
is behind, in eight years, are eighty days.
74.17 And the year is completed exactly, in accordance with their positions, and
the positions of the Sun, in that they rise from the gates, from which the Sun rises,
and sets, for thirty days.
75.1 And the leaders of the tens of thousands, who are in charge of the whole of
creation, and in charge of all the stars, and also the four days which are added, and
are not separated from their position, according to the whole reckoning of the
year. And these serve on the four days that are not counted in the reckoning of the
75.2 And because of them, men go wrong in them. For these lights really serve in
the stations of the world, one in the first gate, and one in the third gate, and one in
the fourth gate, and one in the sixth gate. And the exact harmony of the world is
completed in the separate three hundred and sixty-four stations of the world.
75.3 For the signs, and the times, and the years, and the days, were showed to me
by the Angel Uriel, whom the Lord of Eternal Glory has placed in charge of all the
Lights of Heaven; in Heaven and in the world, so that they might rule on the Face
of Heaven, and appear over the Earth, and be leaders of day and night, the Sun, the
Moon, the stars, and all the serving creatures who revolve in all the Chariots of
75.4 Likewise, Uriel showed to me twelve gate-openings, in the disc of the chariot
of the Sun, in Heaven, from which the rays of the Sun come out. And from them,
heat comes out over the Earth, when they are opened, at the times that are
appointed for them.
75.5 And there are openings for the winds, and for the spirit of the dew, when
they are opened at their times, opened in Heaven, at the ends of the Earth.
75.6 I saw twelve Gates in Heaven, at the ends of the Earth, from which the Sun,
and the Moon, and the stars, and all the works of Heaven, go out in the east and in
75.7 And there are many window-openings to the left, and to the right, and each
window, at its appointed time, sends out heat corresponding to those gates, from
which the stars go out, in accordance with His command to them, and in which
they set according to their number.
75.8 And I saw chariots in Heaven, running through the region above those Gates,
in which the stars that never set, rotate.
75.9 And one is bigger than all the others. And it goes round through the whole
76.1 And, at the ends of the Earth, I saw twelve gates, open to all the winds, from
which the winds come out and blow over the Earth.
76.2 Three of them open in the front of Heaven, and three in the back, and three
on the right of Heaven, and three on the left.
76.3 And the three first, are those towards the east, and then the three towards the
north, and the three after these towards the south, and the three in the west.
76.4 Through four of them come winds of blessing and peace. And from the other
eight come winds of punishment; when they are sent they bring devastation to the
whole Earth, and to the water which is on it, and to all those who dwell upon it,
and to everything that is in the water and on dry ground.
76.5 And the first wind from those gates, called the east wind, comes out through
the first gate, which is towards the east. The one that comes from the south brings
devastation, drought, heat, and destruction.
76.6 And through the second gate, in the middle, comes what is right. And from it
comes rain and fruitfulness, and prosperity, and dew. And through the third gate,
which is towards the north, comes cold and drought.
76.7 And, after these, the winds towards the south come out through three gates.
First, through the first of the gates, which inclines towards the east, comes a hot
76.8 And through the middle gate, which is next to it, come pleasant fragrances,
and dew, and rain, and prosperity, and life.
76.9 And through the third gate, which is towards the west, come dew, and rain,
and locusts, and devastation.
76.10 And after these, the winds towards the north (……) from the seventh gate,
which is towards the east, come dew and rain, locusts and devastation.
76.11 And through the gate exactly in the middle, come rain, and dew, and life,
and prosperity. And through the third gate, which is towards the west, come mist
and hoarfrost, and snow, and rain, and dew, and locusts.
76.12 And, after these, the winds towards the west, through the first gate, which
inclines towards the north, come dew, and rain, and hoarfrost, and cold, and
snow, and frost.
76.13 And from the middle gate, come dew, and rain, prosperity and blessing.
And through the last gate, which is towards the south, come drought and
devastation, burning and destruction.
76.14 And thus the twelve gates, of the four quarters of Heaven, are complete.
And all their laws, and all their punishments, and all their benefits, I have shown to
you, my son Methuselah.
77.1 They called the first quarter eastern, because it is the first, and they call the
second, the south, because there the Most High descends, and there, especially, the
one who is blessed for ever, descends.
77.2 And the western quarter is called waning, because there all the lights of
Heaven wane, and go down.
77.3 And the fourth quarter, named the north, is divided into three parts. And the
first of them is the dwelling place for men; and the second contains seas of water,
and the deeps, and the forests, and rivers, and darkness and mist; and the third part
contains the Garden of Righteousness.
77.4 I saw seven high mountains, which were higher than all other mountains on
the Earth; and from them, snow comes. And days, and times, and years, pass away
and go by.
77.5 I saw seven rivers on the Earth, larger than all the other rivers; one of them
comes from the east, and pours out its waters into the Great Sea.
77.6 And two of them come from the north, to the sea, and pour out their water
into the Erythraean Sea, in the east.
77.7 And the remaining four flow out on the side of the north, to their seas, two to
the Erythraean Sea, and two into the Great Sea, and they discharge themselves
there; and not into the wilderness as some say.
77.8 I saw seven large islands, in the sea, and on the land, two on the land, and five
in the Great Sea.
78.1 The names of the Sun are as follows: The first Oryares, and the second
78.2 The Moon has four names: The first name is Asonya, and the second Ebla,
and the third Benase, and the fourth Era’e.
78.3 These are the two great lights, their disc is like the disc of Heaven, and in size
the two are equal.
78.4 In the disc of the Sun are seven parts of light, which are added to it more than
to the Moon, and in fixed measure light is transferred to the Moon, until a seventh
part of the Sun is exhausted.
78.5 And they set, go into the gates of the west, go round through the north, and
rise through the gates of the east, on the face of Heaven.
78.6 And when the Moon rises, it appears in the sky, and has a half of a seventh
part of light, and on the fourteenth day, it makes all its light full.
78.7 And fifteen parts of light are transferred to it, until on the fifteenth day its
light is full, according to the sign of the year, and amounts to fifteen parts. And the
Moon comes into being by halves of a seventh part.
78.8 And in its waning, on the first day, it decreases to fourteen parts of its light.
And on the second to thirteen parts, and on the third to twelve parts, on the fourth
to eleven parts, and on the fifth to ten parts, and on the sixth to nine parts, and on
the seventh to eight parts, and on the eighth to seven parts, and on the ninth to six
parts, and on the tenth to five parts, and on the eleventh to four parts, and on the
twelfth to three, and on the thirteenth to two, and on the fourteenth to half of a
seventh part. And all the light that remains, from the total, disappears on the
78.9 And in certain months, the Moon has twenty-nine days, and once twenty-eight.
78.10 And Uriel showed me another law; when light is transferred to the Moon,
and on which side it is transferred from the Sun.
78.11 All the time that the Moon is increasing in its light, it transfers as it becomes
opposite the Sun, until in fourteen days its light is full in the sky; and when it is all
ablaze, its light is full in the sky.
78.12 And on the first day, it is called the New Moon, for on that day light rises on
78.13 And its light becomes full, exactly on the day that, as the Sun goes down, in
the west, it rises from the east for the night. And, the Moon shines for the whole
night, until the Sun rises opposite it, and the Moon is seen opposite the Sun.
78.14 And, on the side on which the light of the Moon appears, there again it
wanes, until all its light disappears, and the days of the Moon end, and its disc
remains empty without light.
78.15 And for three months, at its proper time, it achieves thirty days, and for
three months, it achieves twenty-nine days, during which it completes its waning,
in the first period, in the first gate, one hundred and seventy-seven days.
78.16 And in the time of its rising, for three months, it appears in each month with
thirty days. And for three months it appears, in each month, with twenty-nine
78.17 By night, for twenty days each time, it looks like a man, and by day, like the
sky, for there is nothing else in it except its light.
79.1 And now, my son Methuselah, I have shown you everything, and the whole
Law of the Stars of Heaven is complete.
79.2 And he showed me the whole law for these, for every day, and for every
time, and for every rule, and for every year, and for the end thereof, according to
its command, for every month and every week.
79.3 And the waning of the Moon, which occurs in the sixth gate, for in that sixth
gate its light becomes full, and after that it is the beginning of the month.
79.4 And the waning, which occurs in the first gate, at its proper time, until one
hundred and seventy-seven days are complete, or by weeks; twenty-five weeks and
79.5 And how it falls behind the Sun, according to the law of the stars, by exactly
five days in one period of time, when it has completed the pathway you have seen.
79.6 Such is the appearance, and likeness, of every light, which Uriel, the great
Angel who is their leader, showed to me.
80.1 And in those days, Uriel answered me, and said to me: “Behold, I have shown
you everything, O Enoch. And I have revealed everything to you, so that you may
down for you. I have revealed everything to you, and have given you books about
all these things. Keep, my son Methuselah, the books from the hand of your
father, so that you may pass them on to the generations of eternity.
your children, so that they may give it to their children, for all the generations, for
ever, this wisdom that is beyond their thoughts.
they may learn this wisdom, and it will be better for those who eat from it than
82.4 Blessed are all the righteous, blessed are all those who walk in the way of
righteousness, and do not sin like the sinners. In the numbering of all their days, in
which the Sun journeys in Heaven, coming in and out, through the Gates of
Heaven, for thirty days. With the leaders of the thousands, of this order of stars,
and with the four which are added, and divided between the four seasons of the
year, which lead them, and appear with them on four days.
82.5 Because of them, men go wrong, and they do not reckon them in the
reckoning of the whole year; for men go wrong in respect of them and do not
know them exactly.
82.6 For they belong in the reckoning of the year, and are truly recorded for ever,
one in the first gate, and one in the third, and one in the fourth, and one in the
sixth. And the year is completed in three hundred and sixty-four days.
82.7 And the account of it is true, and the recorded reckoning of it is exact, for the
lights, and the months, and the feasts, and the years, and the days. Uriel showed
me, and inspired me; he to whom the Lord of the whole created world, gave
commands, about the Host of Heaven, for me.
82.8 And He has power in Heaven, over night and day, to cause light to shine on
men; the Sun, the Moon, and the stars, and all the Powers of Heaven, which rotate
in their orbits.
82.9 And this is the Law of the Stars, which set in their places, at their times, and
at their feasts, and in their months.
82.10 And these are the names of those who lead them, who keep Watch, so that
they appear at their times, and in their orders, and in their months, and in their
periods of rule, and in their positions.
82.11 Their four leaders, who divide the four parts of the year, appear first; and
after them the twelve leaders of the orders, who divide the months and the years
into three hundred and sixty-four days, with the heads over thousands, who
separate the days. And, for the four days that are added to them, there are the
leaders who separate the four parts of the year.
82.12 And, as for these heads over thousands, one is added between the leader and
the led, behind a position, but their leaders make the separation.
82.13 And these are the names of the leaders who separate the four appointed parts
of the year: Melkiel, Helemmelek, Meleyal, and Narel.
82.14 And the names of those whom they lead: Adnarel, Iyasusael, Iylumiel; these
three follow behind the leaders of the orders. And all others follow behind the
three leaders of the orders, who follow behind those leaders of positions, who
separate the four parts of the year.
82.15 In the beginning of the year Melkiel rises first and rules, who is called the
southern Sun; and all the days of his period, during which he rules, are ninety-one.
82.16 And these are the signs of the days that are to be seen on the Earth, in the
days of his period of rule; sweat, and heat, and calm. And all the trees bear fruit,
and leaves appear on all the trees, and the wheat harvest, and rose flowers. And all
the flowers bloom in the field but the trees of winter are withered.
82.17 And these are the names of the leaders who are under them: Berkeel,
Zelebsael, and another one who is added, a head over a thousand, named
Heloyaseph. And the days of the period of rule, of this one, are complete.
82.18 The second leader, after him, is Helemmelec, whom they call the Shining
Sun; and all the days of his light are ninety-one.
82.19 And these are the signs of the days on Earth; heat and drought. And the
trees bring their fruit to ripeness, and maturity, and make their fruit dry. And the
sheep mate and become pregnant. And men gather all the fruits of the earth, and
everything that is in the fields, and the vats of wine. And these things occur in the
days of his period of rule.
82.20 And these are the names, and the orders, and the leaders, of these heads
over thousands: Gedaeyal, Keel, and Heel. And the name of the head over a
thousand, who is added to them, is Asfael. And the days of his period of rule are
82.2 I have given wisdom to you, and to your children, and to those who will be
your children, so that they may give it to their children, for all the generations, for
ever, this wisdom that is beyond their thoughts.
83.1 And now, my son Methuselah, I will show you all the visions that I saw,
recounting them before you.
83.2 Two visions I saw, before I took a wife, and neither one was like the other.
For the first time, when I learnt the art of writing, and for the second time, before
I took your mother. I saw a terrible vision; and concerning this I made supplication
to the Lord.
83.3 I had lain down in the house of my grandfather, Malalel, when I saw in a
vision how Heaven was thrown down, and removed, and it fell upon the Earth.
83.4 And when it fell upon the Earth, I saw how the Earth was swallowed up in a
great abyss, and mountains were suspended on mountains, and hills sank down
upon hills, and tall trees were torn up by their roots, and were thrown down, and
sank into the abyss.
83.5 And then speech fell into my mouth, and I raised my voice to cry out, and
said: “The Earth is destroyed!”
83.6 And my grandfather, Malalel, roused me, since I lay near him, and said to me:
“Why did you cry out so, my son, and why do you moan so?”
83.7 And I recounted to him the whole vision, which I had seen, and he said to me:
“A terrible thing you have seen, my son! Your dream vision concerns the secrets
of all the sin of the Earth; it is about to sink into the abyss and be utterly destroyed.
83.8 And now, my son, rise and make supplication to the Lord of Glory, for you
are faithful, so that a remnant may be left on the Earth, and that He may not wipe
out the whole Earth.
83.9 My son, from Heaven all this will come upon the Earth, and upon the Earth
there will be great destruction.”
83.10 And then I rose, and prayed, and made supplication, and wrote my prayer
down, for the generations of eternity, and I will show everything to you, my son
83.11 And, when I went out below, and saw the sky, and the Sun rising in the east,
and the Moon setting in the west, and some stars, and the whole Earth, and
everything as He knew it at the beginning. Then I blessed the Lord of Judgement,
and ascribed Majesty to Him, for He makes the Sun come out from the windows of
the east, so that it ascends and rises on the face of Heaven, and sets out and goes in
the path which has been shown to it.
84.1 And I raised my hands in righteousness and I blessed the Holy and Great One.
And I spoke with the breath of my mouth, and with the tongue of flesh, which God
has made for men born of flesh, so that they might speak with it; and He has given
them breath, and a tongue, and a mouth, so that they might speak with them.
84.2 “Blessed are You, O Lord King, and Great and Powerful in Your Majesty,
Lord of the whole Creation of Heaven, King of Kings, and God of the whole
World! And Your Kingly Authority, and Your Sovereignty, and Your Majesty,
will last for ever, and for ever and ever, and Your Power, for all generations. And
all the Heavens are Your Throne, for ever, and the whole Earth Your footstool, for
ever, and for ever and ever.
84.3 For You made, and You rule, everything, and nothing is too hard for You,
and no wisdom escapes You; it does not turn away from Your Throne, nor from
Your presence. And You know, and see, and hear, everything, and nothing is
hidden from You; for You see everything.
84.4 And now, the Angels of Your Heaven are doing wrong, and Your anger rests
upon the flesh of men until the day of the Great Judgement.
84.5 And now, O God, and Lord and Great King, I entreat and ask, that You will
fulfil my prayer to leave me a posterity on Earth, and not to wipe out all the flesh
of men, and make the Earth empty, so that there is destruction for ever.
84.6 And now, my Lord, wipe out from the Earth the flesh that has provoked Your
anger, but the flesh of righteousness, and uprightness, establish as a seed-bearing
plant for ever. And do not hide Your face from the prayer of Your servant, O
85.1 And after this, I saw another dream, and I will show it all to you, my son.
85.2 And Enoch raised his voice, and said to his son Methuselah: “To you I speak,
my son. Hear my words, and incline your ear to the dream vision of your father.
85.3 Before I took your mother, Edna, I saw a vision on my bed: – and behold – a
bull came out of the earth, and that bull was white. And, after it, a heifer came out,
and with the heifer came two bullocks, and one of them was black, and the other
85.4 And that black bullock struck the red one, and pursued it over the earth, and
from then on I could not see that red bullock.
85.5 But that black bullock grew, and a heifer went with it; and I saw that many
bulls came out from it, which were like it, and followed behind it.
85.6 And that cow, that first one, came from the presence of that first bull, seeking
that red bullock, but did not find it. And then it moaned bitterly, and continued to
85.7 And I looked until that first bull came to it, and calmed it, and from that time
it did not cry out.
85.8 And after this, she bore another white bull, and after this she bore many black
bulls and cows.
85.9 And I saw, in my sleep, that white bull, how it likewise grew, and became a
large white bull. And from it came many white bulls, and they were like it.
85.10 And they began to beget many white bulls that were like them; one
86.1 And again, I looked with my eyes as I was sleeping, and I saw Heaven above,
and behold, a star fell from Heaven, and it arose, and ate, and pastured amongst
86.2 And, after this, I saw the large bulls and the black ones, and behold, all of
them changed their pens, and their pastures, and their heifers. And they began to
moan, one after another.
86.3 And, again, I saw in the vision and looked up at the sky, and behold, I saw
many stars, how they came down, and threw themselves down from Heaven, to
that first star, and amongst those heifers and bulls. They were with them,
pasturing amongst them.
86.4 And I looked at them, and saw, and behold, all of them let out their private
parts, like horses, and began to mount the cows of the bulls. And they all became
pregnant, and bore elephants, camels, and asses.
86.5 And all the bulls were afraid of them, and were terrified in front of them.
And they began to bite with their teeth, and to devour, and to gore with their
86.6 And so they began to devour those bulls, and behold, all the sons of the Earth
began to tremble and shake before them, and to flee.
87.1 And again, I saw them, how they began to gore one another, and to devour
one another, and the Earth began to cry out.
87.2 And I raised my eyes again to Heaven, and saw in the vision, and behold,
there came from Heaven beings that were like white men. And four came from
that place, and three others with them.
87.3 And those three, who came out last, took hold of me by my hand, and raised
me from the generations of the Earth, and lifted me up onto a high place, and
showed me a tower, high above the Earth, and all the hills were lower.
87.4 And one said to me: “Remain here, until you have seen everything which is
coming upon these elephants, and camels, and asses, and upon the stars, and upon
all the bulls.”
88.1 And I saw one of those four, who had come out first, how he took hold of that
first star, which had fallen from Heaven, and bound it by its hands and feet, and
threw it into an abyss. And that abyss was narrow, and deep, and horrible, and
88.2 And one of them drew his sword, and gave it to those elephants, camels, and
asses; and they began to strike one another, and the whole Earth shook, because of
88.3 And, as I looked in the vision, behold, one of those four, who had come out,
cast a line from Heaven, and gathered and took all the large stars; those whose
private parts were like the private parts of horses, and bound them all by their
hands and their feet, and threw them into a chasm of the Earth.
89.1 And one of those four, went to a white bull, and taught him a mystery,
trembling as he was. He was born a bull, but became a man, and built for himself a
large vessel, and dwelt on it, and three bulls went with him in that vessel, and they
were covered over.
89.2 And, again, I raised my eyes to Heaven, and saw a high roof with seven water
channels on it, and those channels discharged much water into an enclosure.
89.3 And I looked again, and behold, springs opened on the floor of that large
enclosure, and water began to bubble up, and to rise above the floor. And I looked
at that enclosure until its whole floor was covered by water.
89.4 And water, and darkness, and mist increased on it, and I looked at the height
of that water, and that water had risen above that enclosure, and was pouring out
over the enclosure, and it remained on the earth.
89.5 And all the bulls of that enclosure were gathered together, until I saw how
they sank, and were swallowed up, and destroyed, in that water.
89.6 And that vessel floated on the water, but all the bulls, elephants, camels, and
asses sank to the bottom, together with all the animals, so that I could not see
them. And they were unable to get out, but were destroyed, and sank into the
89.7 And, again, I looked at that vision, until those water channels were removed
from that high roof, and the chasms of the Earth were made level, and other
abysses were opened.
89.8 And the water began to run down into them until the earth became visible,
and that vessel settled on the earth, and the darkness departed, and light appeared.
89.9 And that white bull, who became a man, went out from that vessel and the
three bulls with him. And one of the three bulls was white, like that bull, and one
of them was red as blood, and one was black. And that white bull passed away
89.10 And they began to beget wild animals and birds, so that there arose from
them every kind of species: lions, tigers, wolves, dogs, hyenas, wild-boars, foxes,
badgers, pigs, falcons, vultures, kites, eagles, and ravens. But amongst them was
born a white bull.
89.11 And they began to bite one another, but that white bull, which was born
amongst them, begat a wild ass, and a white bull with it, and the wild asses
89.12 But that bull, which was born from it, begat a black wild boar, and a white
sheep, and that wild boar begat many boars, and that sheep begat twelve sheep.
89.13 And, when those twelve sheep had grown, they handed one of their number
over to the asses, and those in turn, handed that sheep over to the wolves; and that
sheep grew up amongst the wolves.
89.14 And the Lord brought the eleven sheep to dwell with it, and to pasture with
it amongst the wolves, and they increased and became many flocks of sheep.
89.15 And the wolves began to make them afraid, and they oppressed them, until
they made away with their young, and then they threw their young into a river
with much water; but those sheep began to cry out, because of their young, and to
complain to their Lord.
89.16 But a sheep, which had been saved from the wolves, fled and escaped to the
wild asses. And I saw the sheep moaning, and crying out, and petitioning the Lord
with all their power, until that Lord of the sheep came down, at the call of the
sheep, from a high room, and came to them, and pastured them.
89.17 And He called that sheep, which had fled from the wolves, and spoke to it
about the wolves, that it should warn them that they should not touch the sheep.
89.18 And the sheep went to the wolves, in accordance with the Word of the
Lord, and another sheep met that sheep, and went with it. And the two of them
together, entered the assembly of those wolves, spoke to them, and warned them
that from then on, they should not touch those sheep.
89.19 And after this, I saw the wolves, how they acted even more harshly towards
the sheep, with all their power, and the sheep called out.
89.20 And their Lord came to the sheep, and began to beat those wolves; and the
wolves began to moan, but the sheep became silent, and from then on they did not
89.21 And I looked at the sheep until they escaped from the wolves; but the eyes of
the wolves were blinded, and those wolves went out in pursuit of the sheep with
all their forces.
89.22 And the Lord of the sheep went with them, as He led them, and all his sheep
followed Him; and His face was glorious, and His appearance terrible and
89.23 But, the wolves began to pursue those sheep, until they met them by a
stretch of water.
89.24 And that stretch of water was divided, and the water stood on one side, and
on the other, before them. And their Lord, as He led them, stood between them
and the wolves.
89.25 And, while those wolves had not yet seen the sheep, they went into the
middle of that stretch of water; but the wolves pursued the sheep, and those
wolves ran after them into that stretch of water.
89.26 But, when they saw the Lord of the sheep, they turned to flee in front of
Him; but that stretch of water flowed together again, and suddenly resumed its
natural form, and the water swelled up, and rose, until it covered those wolves.
89.27 And I looked until all the wolves, that had pursued those sheep, were
destroyed, and drowned.
89.28 But the sheep escaped that water, and went to a desert, where there was
neither water nor grass. And they began to open their eyes, and see, and I saw the
Lord of the sheep pasturing them, and giving them water, and grass, and that sheep
going and leading them.
89.29 And that sheep went up to the summit of a high rock, and the Lord of the
sheep sent it to them.
89.30 And after this, I saw the Lord of the sheep standing in front of them, and His
appearance was terrible and majestic, and all those sheep saw Him, and were afraid
89.31 And all of them were afraid, and trembled before Him; and they cried out
after that sheep who was with them in their midst: “We cannot stand before our
Lord, nor look at Him.”
89.32 And that sheep, which led them, again went up to the summit of that rock;
and the sheep began to be blinded, and go astray from the path which had been
shown to them, but that sheep did not know.
89.33 And the Lord of the sheep was extremely angry with them, and that sheep
knew, and went down from the summit of the rock, and came to the sheep, and
found the majority of them, with their eyes blinded, and going astray from his
89.34 And when they saw it, they were afraid, and trembled before it, and wished
that they could return to their enclosure. And that sheep, took some other sheep
with it, and went to those sheep that had gone astray, and then began to kill them;
and the sheep were afraid of it. And that sheep brought back those sheep that had
gone astray, and they returned to their enclosures.
89.36 And I looked there, at the vision, until that sheep became a man, and built a
house for the Lord of the sheep, and made all the sheep stand in that house.
89.37 And I looked until that sheep, which had met that sheep that led the sheep,
fell asleep. And I looked until all the large sheep were destroyed, and small ones
arose in their place, and they came to a pasture, and drew near a river of water.
89.38 And that sheep that led them, which had become a man, separated from
them, and fell asleep, and all the sheep sought it, and cried out very bitterly over
89.39 And I looked until they left off crying for that sheep, and crossed that river
of water. And there arose all the sheep that led them, in place of those which had
fallen asleep; and they led them.
89.40 And I looked until the sheep came to a good place, and a pleasant and
glorious land, and I looked until those sheep were satisfied. And that house was in
the middle of them in that green and pleasant land.
89.41 And sometimes their eyes were opened, and sometimes blinded, until
another sheep rose up, led them, and brought them all back. And their eyes were
89.42 And the dogs, and the foxes, and the wild boars, began to devour those
sheep, until the Lord of the sheep raised up a ram, from among them, which led
89.43 And that ram began to butt those dogs, foxes, and wild boars, on one side,
and on the other, until it had destroyed them all.
89.44 And the eyes of that sheep were opened, and it saw that ram, in the middle
of the sheep, how it renounced its glory, and began to butt those sheep, and how it
trampled on them, and behaved unbecomingly.
89.45 And the Lord of the sheep, sent the sheep to another sheep, and raised it up
to be a ram, and to lead the sheep, in place of that sheep which had renounced its
89.46 And it went to it, and spoke with it alone, and raised up that ram, and made
it the prince, and leader of the sheep. And, during all this, those dogs oppressed
89.47 And the first ram pursued that second ram, and that second ram rose and
fled before it. And I looked until those dogs made the first ram fall.
89.48 And that second ram rose up, and led the small sheep, and that ram begat
many sheep, and fell asleep. And a small sheep became a ram, in place of it, and
became the prince, and leader of those sheep.
89.49 And those sheep grew and increased; but all the dogs, and foxes, and wild
boars, were afraid and fled from it. And that ram butted and killed all the animals,
and those animals did not again prevail amongst the sheep, and did not seize
anything further from them.
89.50 And that house became large and broad, and for those sheep a high tower
was built, on that house, for the Lord of the sheep. And that house was low, but
the tower was raised up, and high. And the Lord of the sheep stood on that tower
and they spread a full table before him.
89.51 And I saw those sheep again, how they went astray, and walked in many
ways, and left that house of theirs; and the Lord of the sheep called some of the
sheep, and sent them to the sheep, but the sheep began to kill them.
89.52 But one of them was saved, and was not killed, and it sprang away, and cried
out against the sheep. And they wished to kill it, but the Lord of the sheep saved it
from the hands of the sheep, brought it up to me, and made it stay.
89.53 And He sent many other sheep, to those sheep, to testify to them, and to
lament over them.
89.54 And after this, I saw how when they left the house of the Lord of the sheep,
and his tower, they went astray in everything, and their eyes were blinded. And I
saw how the Lord of the sheep wrought much slaughter among them, in their
pastures, until those sheep themselves invited that slaughter, and betrayed His
89.55 And He gave them into the hands of the lions, and the tigers, and the
wolves, and the hyenas, and into the hands of the foxes, and to all the animals.
And those wild animals began to tear those sheep in pieces.
89.56 And I saw how He left that house of theirs, and their tower, and gave them
all into the hands of the lions, so that they might tear them in pieces, and devour
them, and into the hands of all the animals.
89.57 And I began to cry out, with all my power, to call the Lord of the sheep, and
to represent to Him concerning the sheep; that all the wild animals were devouring
89.58 But He remained still, although He saw, and He rejoiced that they were
devoured, swallowed up, and carried off. And He gave them into the hands of all
the animals for food.
89.59 And He called seventy shepherds, and cast off those sheep, so that they
might pasture them. And He said to the shepherds, and to their companions:
“Each one of you, from now on, is to pasture the sheep, and do whatever I
89.60 And, I will hand them over to you, duly numbered, and I will tell you which
of them are to be destroyed; and destroy them.” And He handed those sheep over
89.61 And He called another, and said to him: “Observe, and see everything that
these shepherds do, against these sheep, for they will destroy, from among them,
more than I have commanded them.
89.62 And, write down all the excess, and destruction, which is wrought by the
shepherds; how many they destroy at My command, and how many they destroy of
their own volition. Write down against each shepherd, individually, all that he
89.63 And read out, in front of Me, exactly how many they destroy of their own
volition, and how many are handed over for destruction, so that this may be a
testimony for Me against them. So that I may know all the deeds of the shepherds,
in order to hand them over for judgement. And I may see what they do, whether
they abide by My command, with which I have commanded them, or not.
89.64 But, they must not know this, and you must not show this to them, nor
reprove them, but only write down against each individual, in his time, all that the
shepherds destroy, and bring it all up to Me.”
89.65 And I looked until those shepherds pastured at their times, and they began to
kill and to destroy more than they were commanded, and they gave those sheep
into the hands of the lions.
89.66 And the lions, and the tigers, devoured and swallowed up the majority of
those sheep, and the wild boars devoured with them; and they burnt down that
tower, and demolished that house.
89.67 And I was extremely sad about that tower, because that house of the sheep
had been demolished; and after that I was unable to see whether those sheep went
into that house.
89.68 And the shepherds, and their companions, handed those sheep over to all the
animals, so that they might devour them. Each one of them, at his time, received
an exact number, and for each one of them, one after the other, there was written
in a book how many of them he destroyed.
89.69 And each one killed, and destroyed, more than was prescribed, and I began
to weep and moan, very much, because of those sheep.
89.70 And likewise, in the vision, I saw that one who wrote; how each day he
wrote down each one that was destroyed by those shepherds. And he brought up,
and presented, the whole book to the Lord of the sheep, everything they had done,
and all that each one of them had made away with, and all that they had handed
over to destruction.
89.71 And the book was read out, in front of the Lord of the sheep, and He took
the book in His hand, read it, sealed it, and put it down.
89.72 And after this, I saw how the shepherds pastured for twelve hours, and
behold; three of those sheep returned, and arrived, and came and began to build up
all that had fallen down from that house; but the wild boars hindered them, so that
they could not.
89.73 And they again began to build, as before, and they raised up that tower, and
it was called the high tower. And they began, again, to place a table before the
tower, but all the bread on it was unclean, and was not pure.
89.74 And, besides all this, the eyes of these sheep were blinded, so that they could
not see, and their shepherds likewise. And they handed yet more of them over to
their shepherds for destruction, and they trampled upon the sheep, with their feet,
and devoured them.
89.75 But the Lord of the sheep remained still, until all the sheep were scattered
abroad, and had mixed with them, and they did not save them from the hands of
89.76 And that one, who wrote the book, brought it up, showed it, and read it out
in the dwelling of the Lord of the sheep. And he entreated Him on behalf of them,
and petitioned Him, as he showed Him all the deeds of their shepherds, and
testified in front of Him against all the shepherds.
89.77 And he took the book, put it down by Him, and went out.
90.1 And I looked until the time that thirty-five shepherds had pastured the sheep
in the same way, and each individually, they all completed their time like the first
ones. And others received them into their hands to pasture them, at their time,
each shepherd at his own time.
90.2 And after this, I saw in the vision, all the birds of the sky coming; the eagles,
the vultures, and the kites, and the ravens. But the eagles led all the birds, and
they began to devour those sheep, to peck out their eyes, and to devour their flesh.
90.3 And the sheep cried out because the birds devoured their flesh. And I cried
out, and lamented, in my sleep, because of that shepherd who pastured the sheep.
90.4 And I looked until those sheep were devoured by those dogs, and by the
eagles, and by the kites, and they left them neither flesh, nor skin, nor sinew, until
only their bones remained. And their bones fell upon the ground, and the sheep
90.5 And I looked until the time that twenty-three shepherds had pastured, and
they completed, each in his time, fifty-eight times.
90.6 And small lambs were born from those white sheep, and they began to open
their eyes, to see, and to cry to the sheep.
90.7 But the sheep did not cry to them, and did not listen to what they said to
them, but were extremely deaf, and their eyes were extremely and excessively
90.8 And I saw, in the vision, how the ravens flew upon those lambs, and took one
of those lambs, and dashed the sheep in pieces, and devoured them.
90.9 And I looked until horns came up on those lambs, but the ravens cast their
horns down. And I looked until a big horn grew, on one of those sheep, and their
eyes were opened.
90.10 And it looked at them; and their eyes were opened. And it cried to the
sheep, and the rams saw it, and they all ran to it.
90.11 And, besides all this, those eagles, and vultures, and ravens, and kites, were
still continually tearing the sheep in pieces, and flying upon them, and devouring
them. And the sheep were silent, but the rams lamented, and cried out.
90.12 And those ravens battled, and fought with it, and wished to make away with
its horn, but they did not prevail against it.
90.13 And I looked at them, until the shepherds, and the eagles, and those
vultures, and kites, came and cried to the ravens that they should dash the horn, of
that ram, in pieces. And they fought and battled with it, and it fought with them,
and cried out, so that its help might come to it.
90.14 And I looked until that man, who wrote down the names of the shepherds,
and brought them up before the Lord of the sheep, came, and he helped that ram,
and showed it everything; that its help was coming down.
90.15 And I looked until that Lord of the sheep came to them in anger, all those
who saw him fled, and they all fell into the shadows, in front of Him.
90.16 All the eagles, and vultures, and ravens, and kites, gathered together, and
brought with them all the wild sheep, and they all came together, and helped one
another, in order to dash that horn of the ram in pieces.
90.17 And I looked at that man, who wrote the book at the command of the Lord,
until he opened that book, of the destruction that those last twelve shepherds had 62
wrought. And he showed, in front of the Lord of the sheep, that they had
destroyed even more than those before them had.
90.18 And I looked until the Lord of the sheep came to them, and took in His hand
the Staff of His Anger, and struck the Earth. And the Earth was split. And all the
animals, and the birds of the sky, fell from those sheep, and sank in the Earth; and
it closed over them.
90.19 And I looked until a big sword was given to the sheep. And the sheep went
out against all the wild animals to kill them. And all the animals, and birds of the
sky, fled before them.
90.20 And I looked until a throne was set up, in a pleasant land, and the Lord of
the sheep sat on it. And they took all the sealed books, and opened the books, in
front of the Lord of the sheep.
90.21 And the Lord called, to those men, the seven first white ones, and
commanded them to bring in front of Him the first star, which went before those
stars whose private parts were like horses, and they brought them all in front of
90.22 And He said to that man, who wrote in front of Him, who was one of the
seven white ones, He said to him: “Take those seventy shepherds, to whom I
handed over the sheep, and who, on their own authority, took and killed more
than I commanded them.”
90.23 And behold, I saw them all bound, and they all stood in front of Him.
90.24 And the Judgement was held, first on the stars, and they were judged and
found guilty, and they went to the place of damnation, and were thrown into a
deep place, full of fire burning, and full of pillars of fire.
90.25 And those seventy shepherds were judged, and found guilty, and they also
were thrown into that abyss of fire.
90.26 And I saw, at that time, how a similar abyss was opened, in the middle of the
Earth, which was full of fire, and they brought those blind sheep, and they were all
judged, and found guilty, and thrown into that abyss of fire, and they burned. And
that abyss was on the south of that house.
90.27 And I saw those sheep burning, and their bones were burning.
90.28 And I stood up, to look, until He folded up that old house, and they
removed all the pillars, and all the beams, and ornaments of that house, were
folded up with it. And they removed it and put it in a place in the south of the
90.29 And I looked until the Lord of the sheep brought a new house, larger and
higher than the first one, and He set it up on the site of the first one, that had been
folded up. And all its pillars were new, and its ornaments were new, and larger 63
than those of the first one, the old one that had been removed. And the Lord of
the sheep was in the middle of it.
90.30 And I saw all the sheep that were left, and all the animals of the Earth, and
all the birds of the sky, falling down and worshipping those sheep, and entreating
them, and obeying them in every command.
90.31 And after this, those three who were dressed in white, and had taken hold of
my hand, the ones who had brought me up at first. They, with the hand of that
ram also holding me, took me up, and put me down in the middle of those sheep,
before the judgement was held.
90.32 And those sheep were all white, and their wool thick and pure.
90.33 And all those which had been destroyed, and scattered, and all the wild
animals, and all the birds of the sky, gathered together in that house, and the Lord
of the sheep rejoiced very much, because they were all good, and had returned to
90.34 And I looked until they had laid down that sword, which had been given to
the sheep, and they brought it back into His house, and it was sealed in front of the
Lord. And all the sheep were enclosed, in that house, but it did not hold them.
90.35 And the eyes of all of them were opened, and they saw well, and there was
not one among them that did not see.
90.36 And I saw that that house was large, broad, and exceptionally full.
90.37 And I saw how a white bull was born, and its horns were big, and all the
wild animals, and all the birds of the sky, were afraid of it, and entreated it
90.38 And I looked until all their species were transformed, and they all became
white bulls. And the first among them was a wild-ox. And that wild-ox was a
large animal, and had big black horns on its head. And the Lord of the sheep
rejoiced over them, and over all the bulls.
90.39 And I was asleep, in the middle of them, and I woke up and saw everything.
90.40 And this is the vision, which I saw while I was asleep, and I woke up, blessed
the Lord of Righteousness, and ascribed glory to Him.
90.41 But after this, I wept bitterly, and my tears did not stop until I could not
endure it. When I looked, they ran down, because of what I saw, for everything
will come to pass, and be fulfilled, and all the deeds of men, in their order, were
shown to me.
90.42 That night I remembered my first dream, and because of it I wept, and was
disturbed, because I had seen that vision.
91.1 And now, my son Methuselah, call to me all your brothers and gather to me
all the children of your mother. For a voice calls me, and a spirit has been poured
over me, so that I may show you everything that will come upon you for ever.
91.2 And after this, Methuselah went and called his brothers to him, and gathered
91.3 And he spoke about righteousness, to all his sons, and said: “Hear, my
children, all the words of your father, and listen properly to the voice of my
mouth, for I will testify to you, and speak to you, my beloved. Love uprightness,
and walk in it.
91.4 And, do not draw near to uprightness with a double heart, and do not
associate with those of a double heart, but walk in righteousness, my children, and
it will lead you in good paths, and righteousness will be your companion.
91.5 For I know that the state of wrongdoing will continue on Earth, and a great
punishment will be carried out on the Earth, and an end will be made of all
iniquity. And it will be cut off at its roots, and its whole edifice will pass away.
91.6 And iniquity will again be complete on the Earth, and all the deeds of iniquity,
and the deeds of wrong, and of wickedness, will prevail for a second time.
91.7 And when iniquity, and sin, and blasphemy, and wrong, and all kinds of evil
deeds increase, and when apostasy, wickedness, and uncleanness increase, a Great
Punishment will come from Heaven upon all these. And the Holy Lord will come
in anger, and in wrath, to execute Judgement on the Earth.
91.8 In those days, wrongdoing will be cut off at its roots, and the roots of
iniquity, together with deceit, will be destroyed from under Heaven.
91.9 And all the idols of the nations will be given up, their towers will be burnt in
fire, and they will remove them from the whole Earth. And they will be thrown
down, into the Judgement of Fire, and will be destroyed in anger, and in the severe
Judgement that is for ever.
91.10 And the righteous will rise from sleep, and wisdom will rise, and will be
given to them.
91.11 And after this, the roots of iniquity will be cut off, and the sinners will be
destroyed by the sword. From the blasphemers they will be cut off in every place,
and those who plan wrongdoing, and those who commit blasphemy, will be
destroyed by the sword.
91.12 And after this, there will be another week, the eighth; that of righteousness,
and a sword will be given to it, so that the Righteous Judgement may be executed
on those who do wrong, and the sinners will be handed over into the hands of the
91.13 And, at its end, they will acquire Houses, because of their righteousness, and
a House will be built for the Great King in Glory, for ever.
91.14 And after this, in the ninth week, the Righteous Judgement will be revealed
to the whole world. And all the deeds of the impious will vanish from the whole
Earth. And the world will be written down for destruction, and all men will look
to the Path of Uprightness.
91.15 And, after this, in the tenth week, in the seventh part, there will be the
Great Eternal Judgement, in which He will take vengeance among the Angels.
91.16 And the First Heaven will vanish, and pass away, and a New Heaven will
appear, and all the Powers of Heaven will shine for ever, with sevenfold light.
91.17 And after this, there will be many weeks, without number, for ever, in
goodness, and in righteousness. And, from then on, sin will never again be
91.18 And now I tell you, my children, and show you the paths of righteousness,
and the paths of wrongdoing. And I will show you again, so that you may know
what is to come.
91.19 And now listen, my children, walk in the paths of righteousness, and do not
walk in the paths of wrongdoing, for all those who walk in the path of iniquity will
be destroyed, for ever.”
92.1 Written by Enoch the Scribe, this Complete Wisdom and Teaching, praised
by all men, and a judge of the whole Earth. For all my sons who dwell on Earth,
and for the last generations, who will practise justice and peace.
92.2 Let not your spirit be saddened by the times, for the Holy and Great One has
appointed days for all things.
92.3 And the righteous man will rise from sleep, will rise and will walk in the path
of righteousness, and all his paths, and his journeys, will be in eternal goodness and
92.4 He will show mercy to the righteous man, and to him give eternal
uprightness, and to him give power. And he will live in goodness, and
righteousness, and will walk in eternal light.
92.5 And sin will be destroyed in darkness, for ever, and from that day will never
again be seen.
93.1 And, after this, Enoch began to speak from the books:
93.2 And Enoch said: “Concerning the sons of righteousness, and concerning the
chosen of the world, and concerning the plant of righteousness and uprightness, I
will speak these things to you, and make them known to you, my children. I
Enoch, according to that which appeared to me, in the Heavenly vision, and that
which I know from the words of the Holy Angels, and understanding from the
Tablets of Heaven.”
93.3 And Enoch then began to speak from the books, and said: “I was born the
seventh, in the first week, while justice and righteousness still lasted.
93.4 And, after me, in the second week, great injustice will arise, and deceit will
have sprung up. And in it, there will be the First End, and in it, a man will be
saved. And after it has ended, iniquity will grow, and He will make a law for the
93.5 And after this, in the third week, at its end, a man will be chosen as the Plant
of Righteous Judgement, and after him will come the Plant of Righteousness, for
93.6 And after this, in the fourth week, at its end, visions of the righteous and Holy
will be seen, and a Law for All Generations, and an enclosure will be made for
93.7 And after this, in the fifth week, at its end, a House of Glory and Sovereignty
will be built for ever.
93.8 And after this, in the sixth week, all those who live in it will be blinded. And
the hearts of them all, lacking wisdom, will sink into impiety. And in it, a man will
ascend, and at its end the House of Sovereignty will be burnt with fire. And in it
the whole race of the chosen root will be scattered.
93.9 And after this, in the seventh week, an apostate generation will arise. And
many will be its deeds; but all its deeds will be apostasy.
93.10 And at its end, the Chosen Righteous, from the Eternal Plant of
Righteousness, will be chosen, to whom will be given sevenfold teaching,
concerning His whole creation.
93.11 For is there any man who can hear the voice of the Holy One and not be
disturbed? And who is there who can think His thoughts? And who is there who
can look at all the works of Heaven?
93.12 And how should there be anyone who could understand the works of
Heaven, and see a soul, or a spirit, and tell about it, or ascend and see all their
ends, and comprehend them, or make anything like them?
93.13 And is there any man who could know the length and breadth of the Earth?
And to whom have all its measurements been shown?
93.14 Or is there any man who could know the length of Heaven, and what is its
height, and on what is it fixed, and how large is the number of stars, and where all
the lights rest?
94.1 And now, I say to you, my children, love righteousness and walk in it; for the
paths of righteousness are worthy of acceptance, but the paths of iniquity will
quickly be destroyed and vanish.
94.2 And to certain men, from a future generation, the paths of wrongdoing, and
of death, will be revealed; and they will keep away from them, and will not follow
94.3 And now, I say to you, the righteous; do not walk in the wicked path, or in
wrongdoing, or in the paths of death, and do not draw near to them, or you may
94.4 But seek, and choose for yourself, righteousness, and a life that is pleasing,
and walk in the paths of peace, so that you may live and prosper.
94.5 And hold my words firmly in the thoughts of your heart, and do not let them
be erased from your heart, for I know that sinners will tempt men to debase
wisdom, and no place will be found for it, and temptation will in no way decrease.
94.6 Woe to those who build iniquity, and wrongdoing, and create deceit, for they
will quickly be thrown down, and will not have peace.
94.7 Woe to those who build their houses with sin, for from their whole
foundation they will be thrown down, and by the sword they shall fall, and those
who acquire gold and silver will quickly be destroyed in the Judgement.
94.8 Woe to you, you rich, for you have trusted in your riches, but from your
riches you will depart, for you did not remember the Most High in the days of your
94.9 You have committed blasphemy, and iniquity, and are ready for the days of
the outpouring of blood, and for the day of darkness, and for the day of the Great
94.10 Thus I say, and make known to you, that He who created you will throw
you down, and over your fall there will be no mercy, but your creator will rejoice
at your destruction.
94.11 And your righteousness, in those days, will be a reproach to the sinners and
to the impious.
95.1 Would that my eyes were a cloud of water, so that I might weep over you,
and pour out my tears like rain, so that I might have rest from the sorrow of my
95.2 Who permitted you to practice hatred and wickedness? May judgement come
upon you, the sinners!
95.3 Do not be afraid of the sinners, you righteous, for the Lord will again deliver
them into your hands, so that you may execute judgement on them as you desire.
95.4 Woe to you who pronounce anathema that you cannot remove. Healing will
be far from you because of your sin.
95.5 Woe to you who repay your neighbours with evil; for you will be repaid
according to your deeds.
95.6 Woe to you, you lying witnesses, and to those who weigh out iniquity, for
you will quickly be destroyed.
95.7 Woe to you, you sinners, because you persecute the righteous, for you
yourselves will be handed over and persecuted, you men of iniquity, and their yoke
will be heavy on you.
96.1 Be hopeful, you righteous, for the sinners will quickly be destroyed in front of
you, and you will have power over them as you desire.
96.2 And, in the day of the distress of the sinners, your young will rise up, like
eagles, and your nest will be higher than that of vultures. And you will go up, and
like badgers enter the crevices of the earth, and the clefts of the rock, for ever,
before the lawless, but they will groan and weep because of you, like satyrs.
96.3 And do not be afraid, you who have suffered, for you will receive healing, and
a bright light will shine upon you, and the Voice of Rest you will hear from
96.4 Woes to you, you sinners, for your riches make you appear righteous, but
your hearts prove you to be sinners. And this word will be a testimony against
you; as a reminder of your evil deeds.
96.5 Woe to you who devour the finest of the wheat, and drink the best of the
water, and trample upon the humble through your power.
96.6 Woe to you who drink water all the time, for you will quickly be repaid, and
will become exhausted and dry, for you have left the spring of life.
96.7 Woe to you who commit iniquity, and deceit, and blasphemy, it will be a
reminder of evil against you.
96.8 Woe to you, you powerful, who through power oppress the righteous; for
the day of your destruction will come. In those days, many good days will come
for the righteous, in the day of your judgement.
97.1 Believe, you righteous, that the sinners will become an object of shame, and
will be destroyed on the Day of Judgement.
97.2 Be it known, to you, sinners, that the Most High remembers your
destruction, and that the Angels rejoice over your destruction.
97.3 What will you do, you sinners, and where will you flee on that Day of
Judgement when you hear the sound of the prayer of the righteous?
97.4 But will you not be like them, or those against whom this word will be a
testimony: “You have been associated with the sinners.”
97.5 And in those days, the prayers of the Holy will be in front of the Lord; and for
you sinners will come the days of your judgement.
97.6 And the words of your iniquity will be read out before the Great and Holy
One, and your faces will blush with shame, and every deed which is founded upon
iniquity will be rejected.
97.7 Woe to you, you sinners, who are in the middle of the sea, or on dry ground,
their memory will be harmful to you.
97.8 Woe to you who acquire silver and gold, but not in righteousness, and say:
“We have become very rich and have possessions, and have acquired everything
that we desired.
97.9 And now, let us do what we planned, for we have gathered silver and filled
our storehouses, and as many as water are the servants of our houses.”
97.10 And, like the water, your life will flow away, for your riches will not stay
with you, but will quickly go up from you, for you acquired everything in iniquity,
and you will be given over to a great curse.
98.1 Now I swear to you, the wise, and the foolish, that you will see many things
on the Earth.
98.2 For you men will put on yourselves more adornments than a woman, and
more coloured garments than a girl, clothed in sovereignty, and in majesty, and in
power, and silver, and gold, and purple, and honours; and food will be poured out
98.3 Because of this, they will have neither knowledge nor wisdom. And through
this, they will be destroyed, together with their possessions, and with all their
glory and their honour. And in shame, and in slaughter, and in great destitution,
their spirits will be thrown into the fiery furnace.
98.4 I swear to you, you sinners, that as a mountain has not, and will not, become
a slave, nor a hill a woman’s maid, so sin was not sent on the Earth, but man, of
himself, created it. And those who commit it will be subject to a great curse.
98.5 And barrenness has not been given to a woman; but because of the deeds of
her hand she dies without children.
98.6 I swear to you, you sinners, by the Holy and Great One, that all your evil
deeds are revealed in Heaven, and that your wrongdoing is not covered or hidden.
98.7 And do not think, in your spirit, nor say in your heart, that you do not know,
or do not see; every sin is written down, every day, in Heaven in front of the Most
98.8 From now on, you know that all your wrongdoing that you do, will be
written down every day until the day of your judgement.
98.9 Woe to you, you fools, for you will be destroyed through your folly. And
you do not listen to the wise and good will not come upon you.
98.10 And now know that you are ready for the day of destruction. And do not
hope that you will live, you sinners; rather you will go and die, for you know no
ransom. You are ready for the day of the Great Judgement, and for the Day of
Distress and great shame for your spirits.
98.11 Woe to you, you stubborn of heart, who do evil and eat blood, from where
do you have good things to eat, and drink, and to be satisfied? From all the good
things which our Lord, the Most High, has placed in abundance on the Earth.
Therefore you will not have peace.
98.12 Woe to you who love deeds of iniquity. Why do you hope for good for
yourselves? Know that you will be given into the hands of the righteous, and they
will cut your throats and kill you, and will not have mercy on you.
98.13 Woe to you who rejoice in the distress of the righteous; for graves will not
be dug for you.
98.14 Woe to you who declare the words of the righteous to be empty; for you
will have no hope of life.
98.15 Woe to you who write lying words, and the words of the impious, for they
write their lies so that men may hear and continue their folly. And they will not
have peace but will die a sudden death.
99.1 Woe to you, who do impious deeds, and praise and honour lying words; you
will be destroyed and will not have a good life.
99.2 Woe to you who alter the words of truth, and they distort the Eternal Law,
and count themselves as being without sin; they will be trampled underfoot on the
99.3 In those days, make ready, you righteous, to raise your prayers as a reminder,
and lay them as a testimony before the Angels, so that they may lay the sin of the
sinners before the Most High as a reminder.
99.4 In those days, the nations will be thrown into confusion, and the races of the
nations will rise, on the Day of Destruction.
99.5 And in those days, those who are in need will go out, seize their children, and
cast out their children. And their offspring will slip from them. And they will cast
out their children while they are still sucklings, and will not return to them, and
will not have mercy on their beloved ones.
99.6 And again I swear to you, the sinners, that sin is ready for the day of unceasing
99.7 And they worship stone, and some carve images of gold and of silver, and of
wood and of clay. And some, with no knowledge, worship unclean spirits, and
demons, and every kind of error. But no help will be obtained from them.
99.8 And they will sink into impiety, because of the folly of their hearts, and their
eyes will be blinded through the fear of their hearts, and through the vision of their
99.9 Through these, they will become impious and fearful, for they do all their
deeds with lies, and worship stones, and they will be destroyed at the same
99.10 And in those days, blessed are those who accept the words of wisdom, and
understand them, and follow the paths of the Most High, and walk in the path of
righteousness, and do not act impiously with the impious; for they will be saved.
99.11 Woe to you, who extend evil to your neighbours; for you will be killed in
99.12 Woe to you, who lay foundations of sin and deceit, and who cause bitterness
on the Earth, for because of this an end will be made of them.
99.13 Woe to you, who build your houses with the toil of others, and all their
building materials are the sticks and stones of sin; I say to you: “You will not have
99.14 Woe to those who reject the measure, and the eternal inheritance of their
fathers, and cause their souls to follow after error; for they will not have rest.
99.15 Woe to those who commit iniquity, and help wrong, and kill their
neighbours, until the day of the Great Judgement; for He will throw down your
99.16 And you put evil into your hearts, and rouse the spirit of His anger, so that
He may destroy you all with the sword. And all the righteous and the Holy will
remember your sin.
100.1 And, in those days, and in one place, fathers and sons will strike one
another, and brothers will together fall in death, until their blood flows as if it
were a stream.
100.2 For a man will not, in mercy, withhold his hand from his sons, nor from his
son’s sons, in order to kill them. And the sinner will not withhold his hand from
his honoured brother; from dawn, until the Sun sets, they will kill one another.
100.3 And the horse will walk up to its chest in the blood of sinners, and the
chariot will sink up to its height.
100.4 And in those days, the Angels will come down into the hidden places, and
gather together, in one place, all those who have helped sin, and the Most High
will rise on that day to execute the Great Judgement on all the sinners.
100.5 And He will set guards, from the Holy Angels, over all the righteous and
Holy, and they will guard them like the apple of an eye, until an end is made of all
evil and all sin. And even if the righteous sleep a long sleep they have nothing to
100.6 And the wise men will see the truth, and the sons of the Earth will
understand all the words of this book; and they will know that their riches will not
be able to save them, or overthrow their sin.
100.7 Woe to you, you sinners, when you afflict the righteous on the day of severe
trouble, and burn them with fire; you will be repaid according to your deeds.
100.8 Woe to you, you perverse of heart, who watch to devise evil; fear will come
upon you, and there is no one who will help you.
100.9 Woe to you, you sinners, for on account of the words of your mouth, and
on account of the deeds of your hands, that you have impiously done; you will burn
in blazing flames of fire.
100.10 And now know that the Angels will inquire in Heaven into your deeds,
from the Sun, and the Moon, and the Stars, into your sins, for on Earth you
execute judgement on the righteous.
100.11 And all the clouds, and mist, and dew, and rain, will testify against you, for
they will be withheld from you, so that they do not fall on you, and they will think
about your sins.
100.12 And now give gifts to the rain, so that it may not be withheld from falling
on you, and so that the dew, if it has accepted gold and silver from you, may fall.
100.13 When the hoarfrost and snow, with their cold, and all the snow-winds with
their torments, fall on you. In those days, you will not be able to stand before
101.1 Contemplate Heaven, all you sons of Heaven, and all the works of the Most
High, and fear Him, and do not do evil in front of Him.
101.2 If He closes the Windows of Heaven, and withholds the rain and the dew, so
that it does not fall on the Earth, because of you, what will you do?
101.3 And if He sends His anger upon you, and upon all your deeds, will you not
entreat Him? For you speak proud and hard words against His righteousness. And
you will not have peace.
101.4 And do you not see the captains of the ships; how their ships are tossed by
the waves, and rocked by the winds, and are in distress?
101.5 And because of this, they are afraid for all their good possessions that go out
on the sea with them, and they think nothing good in their hearts, only that the sea
will swallow them up, and that they will be destroyed in it.
101.6 Is not all the sea, and all its waters, and all its movement, the work of the
Most High, and did He not seal all its doings, and bind it all with sand?
101.7 And at His rebuke it dries up, and becomes afraid, and all its fish die, and
everything in it; but you sinners who are on Earth do not fear Him.
101.8 Did He not make Heaven, Earth, and everything that is in them? And who
gave knowledge and wisdom to all things that move on the ground, and in the sea?
101.9 And do not those captains of the ships fear the sea? Yet sinners do not fear
the Most High.
102.1 And in those days, if He brings a fierce fire upon you, where will you flee,
and where will you be safe? And when He utters his voice against you, will you not
be terrified and afraid?
102.2 And all the Lights will shake with great fear, and the whole Earth will be
terrified, and will tremble and quail.
102.3 And all the Angels will carry out their commands, and will seek to hide from
The One who is Great in Glory, and the children of the Earth will tremble and
shake; and you sinners will be cursed for ever and will not have peace.
102.4 Do not be afraid, you souls of the righteous, and be hopeful, you who have
died in righteousness.
102.5 And do not be sad that your souls have gone down into Sheol in sadness, and
that your bodies did not obtain, during your life, a reward in accordance with your
102.6 But, when you die, the sinners will say about you: “As we die, the righteous
have also died, and of what use to them were their deeds?
102.7 Behold, like us, they have died in sadness, and in darkness, and what
advantage do they have over us? From now on we are equal.
102.8 And what will they receive, and what will they see for ever? For behold,
they too have died, and from now on they will never again see the light.”
102.9 And I say to you, you sinners: “You are content to eat and drink, and strip
men naked, and steal, and sin, and acquire possessions, and see good days. 74
102.10 But you saw the righteous, how their end was peace; for no wrong was
found in them until the day of their death.”
102.11 “But, they were destroyed, and became as though they had not been, and
their souls went down to Sheol in distress.”
103.1 And now I swear to you, the righteous, by His Great Glory and His Honour,
and by His Magnificent Sovereignty, and by His Majesty, I swear to you that I
understand this mystery.
103.2 And I have read the Tablets of Heaven, and seen the writing of the Holy
Ones. And I found written and engraved in it, concerning them, that all good, and
joy, and honour, have been made ready, and written down, for the spirits of those
who died in righteousness.
103.3 And much good will be given to you, in recompense for your toil, and that
your lot will be more excellent than the lot of the living.
103.4 And the spirits of you who have died in righteousness, will live, and your
spirits will rejoice and be glad, and the memory of them will remain in front of the
Great One for all the generations of eternity. Therefore do not fear their abuse.
103.5 Woe to you, you sinners, when you die in your sin, and those who are like
you, say about you: “Blessed were the sinners they saw their days.
103.6 And now they have died in prosperity and wealth, distress and slaughter they
did not see during their life, but they have died in glory, and judgement was not
executed on them in their life.”
103.7 Know that their souls will be made to go down into Sheol, they will be
wretched, and their distress will be great.
103.8 And in darkness, and in chains, and in burning flames, your spirits will come
to the Great Judgement. And the Great Judgement will last for all generations, for
ever. Woe to you; for you will not have peace.
103.9 Do not say, the righteous, and the good, who were alive: “In the days of our
affliction we toiled laboriously, and saw every affliction, and met many evils. We
were spent, and became few, and our spirit small.
103.10 We were destroyed, and there was no one who helped us, with words, or
with deeds. We were powerless and found nothing. We were tortured and
destroyed, and did not expect to see life from one day to the next.
103 11 We hoped to become the head but became the tail. We toiled and
laboured, but were not masters of the fruits of our toil; we became food for the
sinners, and the lawless made their yoke heavy upon us.
103.12 Those who hated us, those who goaded us, were masters of us. And, to
those who hated us, we bowed our necks; but they did not have mercy on us.
103.13 We sought to escape from them, so that we might flee, and be at rest. But
we found no place where we might flee and be safe from them.
103.14 We complained about them to the rulers, in our distress, and cried out
against those who devoured us, but they took no notice of our cries, and did not
wish to listen to our voice.
103.15 And they helped those who plundered us, and devoured us, and those who
made us few, and they concealed their wrongdoing, and did not remove from us
the yoke of those who devoured us, and scattered us, and killed us. And they
concealed our slaughter, and did not remember that they had raised their hands
104.1 I swear to you, you righteous, that in Heaven the Angels remember you for
good, in front of the Glory of the Great One, and that your names are written
down in front of the Glory of the Great One.
104.2 Be hopeful! For you were formerly put to shame through evils and
afflictions, but now you will shine, like the Lights of Heaven, and will be seen, and
the Gate of Heaven will be opened to you.
104.3 And persevere in your cry for judgement, and it will appear to you, for
justice will be exacted from the rulers, for all your distress, and from all those who
helped those who plundered you.
104.4 Be hopeful, and do not abandon your hope, for you will have great joy like
the Angels of Heaven.
104.5 What will you have to do? You will not have to hide on the day of the Great
Judgement, nor will you be found to be sinners. The Eternal Judgement will be
upon you for all the generations of eternity.
104.6 And now do not be afraid, you righteous, when you see the sinners growing
strong and prospering in their desires, and do not be associated with them, but
keep far away from their wrongdoing, for you will be associates of the Host of
104.7 For you sinners say: “None of our sins will be inquired into and written
down!” But they will write down your sins every day.
104.8 And now, I show you that light and darkness, day and night, see all your
104.9 Do not be impious in your hearts, and do not lie, and do not alter the words
of truth, nor say that the words of the Holy and Great One are lies, and do not
praise your idols. For all your lies, and all your impiety, lead not to righteousness
but to great sin.
104.10 And now, I know this mystery; that many sinners will alter and distort the
words of truth, and speak evil words, and lie, and concoct great fabrications, and
write books in their own words.
104.11 But, when they write my words exactly, in their languages, and do not
alter or omit anything from my words, but write everything exactly, everything
that I testified about before; then I know another mystery:
104.12 That books will be given to the righteous and wise, and will be a source of
joy, and truth, and much wisdom.
104.13 And books will be given to them, and they will believe in them, and rejoice
over them; and all the righteous, who have learnt from them all the ways of truth,
will be glad.
105.1 And in those days, says the Lord, they shall call and testify, to the sons of the
Earth, about the wisdom in them. Show it to them, for you are their leaders, and
the rewards will be over all the Earth.
105.2 For my son, and I, will join ourselves with them, for ever, in the paths of
uprightness, during their lives. And you will have peace. Rejoice, you sons of
The Book of Methuselah
106.1 And after those days, my son Methuselah chose a wife for his son Lamech,
and she became pregnant by him, and bore a son.
106.2 And his body was white, like snow, and red like the flower of a rose, and the
hair of his head was white like wool. And his eyes were beautiful, and when he 78
opened his eyes he made the whole house bright, like the Sun, so that the whole
house was exceptionally bright.
106.3 And when he was taken from the hand of the midwife, he opened his mouth
and spoke to the Lord of Righteousness.
106.4 And his father Lamech was afraid of him, and fled, and went to his father
106.5 And he said to him: “I have begotten a strange son; he is not like a man but
is like the children of the Angels of Heaven, of a different type and not like us.
And his eyes are like the rays of the Sun and his face glorious.
106.6 And it seems to me that he is not sprung from me, but from the Angels, and
I am afraid that something extraordinary may be done on the Earth in his days.
106.7 And now, my father, I am entreating you, and petitioning you, to go to our
father Enoch, and learn from him the truth, for his dwelling is with the Angels.”
106.8 And when Methuselah heard the words of his son he came to me, at the ends
of the Earth, for he had heard that I was there. And he cried out, and I heard his
voice and went to him. And I said to him: “Behold, I am here my son, for you
have come to me.”
106.9 And he answered me, and said: “Because of a great matter I have come to
you, and because of a disturbing vision, have I come near.
106.10 And now hear me, my father, for a child has been born to my son Lamech,
whose form and type are not like the type of a man. His colour is whiter than
snow and redder than the flower of the rose, and the hair of his head is whiter than
white wool. And his eyes are like the rays of the Sun, and he opened his eyes and
made the whole house bright.
106.11 And he was taken from the hand of the midwife, and he opened his mouth,
and blessed the Lord of Heaven.
106.12 And his father, Lamech, was afraid and fled to me. And, he does not
believe he is sprung from him, but thinks him to be from the Angels of Heaven.
And behold, I have come to you, so that you may make known to me the truth.”
106.13 And I, Enoch, answered and said to him: “The Lord will do new things on
Earth, and this I have already seen in a vision, and made known to you. For in the
generation of my father, Jared, some from the height of Heaven transgressed the
word of the Lord.
106.14 And behold, they commit sin and transgress the law, and have been
promiscuous with women, and commit sin with them, and have married some of
them, and have begotten children by them.
106.15 And there will be great destruction over the whole Earth, and there will be
a deluge, and there will be great destruction for one year.
106.16 But this child, who has been born to you, will be left on the Earth, and his
three sons will be saved with him. When all the men who are on the Earth die; he
and his sons will be saved.
106.17 They will beget on the Earth giants, not of spirit, but of flesh, and there
will be great wrath on Earth, and the Earth will be cleansed of all corruption.
106.18 And now, make known to your son Lamech that the one who has been
born is truly his son. And call his name Noah, for he will be a remnant for you,
and he and his sons will be saved from the destruction, which is coming on the
Earth because of all the sin, and all the iniquity, which will be committed on the
Earth in his days.
106.19 But, after this, there will be yet greater iniquity than that which was
committed on the Earth before. For I know the mysteries of the Holy Ones, for the
Lord showed them to me, and made them known to me, and I read them in the
Tablets of Heaven.
107.1 And I saw written on them that generation upon generation will do wrong,
until a generation of righteousness shall arise, and wrongdoing shall be destroyed,
and sin shall depart from the Earth, and everything good shall come upon it.
107.2 And now, my son, go make known to your son Lamech that this child who
has been born, is truly his son, and this is no lie.”
107.3 And when Methuselah had heard the words of his father Enoch, for he
showed him everything which is secret, he returned, having seen him, and called
the name of that child Noah; for he will comfort the Earth after all the destruction.
108.1 Another book, which Enoch wrote for his son Methuselah, and for those
who should come after him and keep the law in the last days.
108.2 You who have observed, and are waiting, in these days, until an end shall be
made of those who do evil, and an end shall be made of the power of the
108.3 Do indeed wait until sin shall pass away; for their names will be erased from
the Books of the Holy Ones, and their offspring will be destroyed for ever. And
their spirits will be killed, and they will cry out and moan, in a chaotic desert
place, and will burn in fire, for there is no Earth there.
108.4 And there, I saw something like a cloud, which could not be discerned, for
because of its depth I was not able to look into it. And the flames of a fire, I saw,
burning brightly, and things like bright mountains, revolved, and shook from side
108.5 And I asked one of the Holy Angels, who were with me, and I said to him:
“What is this bright place? For there is no sky, but only the flames of a burning
fire, and the sounds of crying, and weeping, and moaning, and severe pain.”
108.6 And he said to me: “This place which you see; here will be thrown the
spirits of the sinners, and of the blasphemers, and of those who do evil. And of 77
those who alter everything that the Lord has spoken, through the mouths of the
prophets, about the things that shall be done.
108.7 For there are books, and records about them, in Heaven above, so that the
Angels may read them and know what is about to come upon the sinners. And
upon the spirits of the humble, and of those who afflicted their bodies and were
recompensed by God, and of those who were abused by evil men.
108.8 Those who loved God and did not love gold, or silver, or any worldly
goods, but gave up their bodies to torment.
108.9 Those who, from the moment they existed, did not desire earthly food, but
counted themselves as a breath which passes away, and kept to this. And the Lord
tested them much, and their spirits were found pure, so that they might bless His
108.10 And all their blessings I have recounted in the books, and He has assigned
them their reward, for they were found to be such that they loved Heaven more
than their life in the world. And even though they were trampled underfoot by
evil men, and had to listen to reviling, and reproach, from them, and were abused,
yet they blessed their Lord.
108.11 And the Lord said: “And now I will call the spirits of the good, who are of
the Generation of Light, and I will transform those who were born in darkness,
who in the flesh were not recompensed with honour as was fitting to their faith.
108.12 And I will bring out into the shining light those who love My Holy Name,
and I will set each one on the throne of his honour.”
108.13 And they will shine, for times without number, for righteous is the
Judgement of God, for with the faithful He will keep faith in the dwelling of
108.14 And they will see those who were born in darkness, thrown into the
darkness, while the righteous shine.
108.15 And the sinners will cry out, as they see them shining, but they themselves
will go where days, and times, have been written down for them
