On the Heavenly Luminaries
The process of the gates
1. This is
the book of the itinerary of the luminaries of heaven, the position of each and
everyone in respect to their ranks, authorities, their season, their names,
place of origin, and their months.
Uriel, the holy angel that was with me showed me, who was also my guide in the
books in the nature of the years of the world into forever, till the new
creation is created which abides into eternity.
the first commandment of the luminaries; The sun is a luminary whose egress is
an opening of heaven located in the direction of the east, and whose ingress is
an opening of heaven in the west.
I saw six
openings through which the sun rises and six openings through which it sets, and
the moon rises and sets through the same openings, and they are guided by the
stars together with those by whom they are led.
in the east and six in the west heaven, all of them arranged in constant order,
and there are many windows to the right and left of these openings.
light whose name is the sun, goes out first, its roundness is like the roundness
of the sky, and is fully filled with light and heat.
chariot on which it ascends is the moving wind. The sun sets in the western sky and returns by the northeast
in order to go to the east.
guided so it reaches the eastern gate shining in the face of the sky, in this
manner it rises in the first month through the major gate.
proceeds through the fourth among these six openings located in the direction of
10. When the
sun rises in the sky it goes through this fourth gate for 30 mornings and
descends faithfully through the fourth gate in the western sky.
these days the day becomes daily longer and the night nightly shorter for 30
days. In that time the day becomes
longer than the night by 19th, so that the day comes out to 10 parts with the
night at 8 parts.
12. Then the
sun comes into the fifth gate in the east for 30 days through which it rises and
also sets in the fifth gate.
13. At that
time the day becomes still longer to 11 parts and the night shorter to 7 parts,
on account of the movement of the sun.
returns to the east and comes into the sixth gate rising and setting through it
for 30 and 1 days according to the principle thereof.
day the day becomes even longer than the night, to become 12 parts and the night
shortens to six parts, the sun is raised in such a way to vary day and night.
16. Next the
sun returns to the east and enters the sixth gate rising and setting through it
for 30 days, when these 30 days are completed, the day decreases by one part
becoming 11 parts with the night 7 parts.
17. Then the
sun leaving the west by that sixth gate going to the east rises through the
fifth gate for 30 mornings and sets again in the fifth gate in the west.
time the day decreases by one part to become 10 parts, and the night 8 parts.
sun departing from the fifth gate rises in the fourth gate for 30 and 1 day
according to the principle of it, and sets in the west.
20. On that
day the day is aligned with the night so that they become equal, the night being
nine parts and the day nine parts.
21. Then the
sun departing from that gate and setting in the west returns and comes out
through the third gate for 30 days and sets in the third gate in the west.
day the night becomes longer than the day and longer than the previous night,
and the day shorter than the previous day for 30 days, so that the night comes
out to 10 parts with the day at 8 parts.
23. Then the
sun departing from the third gate in the west and returning to the east comes
out through the second gate in the east for 30 days, and in the same manner sets
in the second gate in the west.
24. On that
day the night becomes 11 parts and the day 7 parts.
sun departing on that day from the second gate in the west returns to the east
and rises in the first gate for 30 and 1 days, and setting again in the western
day the night lengthens and becomes 12 parts while the day shortens to 6 parts.
27. Thus the
sun completes its appearances a second time coming out through all the openings
for 30 days and setting in the west opposite to it.
night the length of the night decreases by 19th to become 11 parts and the day 7
sun returns and enters the second gate in the east resuming its appearance for
30 mornings rising and setting.
day the night becomes shorter to become 10 parts and the day 8 parts.
that day the sun departing from this second gate setting in the west, it returns
to the east and rises through the third gate for 30 and 1 days, and sets in the
day the night shortens and becomes 9 parts and the day 9 parts, the night coming
equal with the day.
The Sun governs the years
the days of the year add up to exactly 364 days, with the length of the day and night determined by
the circuit of the sun, and varied by it, the circuit becomes longer or shorter
day by day, and night by night.
the order for the course of the movement and setting of the sun, that great
luminary that is called the sun for the duration of the universe in respect to
its going in and coming out.
that very luminary, which manifests itself as God has commanded it, that it
shall come out and go in, in that manner.
neither does it diminish nor take rest, but continues day and night.
And as for its intensity of light it is sevenfold brighter than the moon.
The course of the moon
this set of regulations for the sun, I saw another set of regulations for the
minor luminary, which is called the moon.
roundness is like the roundness of the sky, and it rides on the chariot of the
wind, and gives light in varying measure, coming and going, changing every
are like the days of the sun, and when it fully reflects light it amounts to one
seventh of the light of the sun.
rises in this manner, it faces the easterly direction coming out on the 13th
day, on that day it comes in existence and appears with the sun in the gate
through which the sun exits, and you have the head (beginning) of the month.
half of it divided in 7 parts, the whole disk is then without light with the
exception of 17th part of its half which is 1/14 of its whole.
the sun rises, the moon rises together with it showing a portion of one half of
its light beginning its monthly journey on its first lunar day, and sets with
the sun, and becomes dark that night in respect to its 13 remaining parts.
day it rises and shines with-exactly 1/7th part, then comes out and recedes
towards the east where the sun rises increasing in brightness by 1/7th part in
each of the remaining six parts of its half during the remaining days.
saw another course of movement with its own commands whereby the system fulfills
its monthly course of movement.
things Uriel, the holy angel who is guide to all of them showed me, including
their fixed positions.
10. And I
wrote these fixed positions down just as he showed me, and I wrote down their
months as they were, as well as the variable aspects of their illumination until
the completion of fifteen days.
wanes in 15 steps during a period of 15 days, and waxes in 14 steps in the east
and west respectively.
designated months it alters its settings, and in designated months it fulfills
its usual course.
months it sets with the sun, and uses those two middle openings the 3rd and 4th
out for seven days and completes a circuit as it returns again to the gate
through which the sun rises.
manner it waxes and recedes from the sun entering the sixth gate through which
the sun rises in eight days.
sun rises through the fourth gate, the moon comes out for seven days until it
starts coming out through the fifth.
turns back towards the fourth gate in seven days waxing as it recedes, and
enters the first gate in eight days, then again it returns to the fourth gate
through which the sun rises in seven days.
18. This is
how I saw their fixed positions in those days, how the moon rises and shines
when the sun sets.
combining five years the sun gains fifty extra days, thus the moon falls behind
the sun and the stars for fifty days in five years, and the days of the year are
is brought around punctually so that they forever neither gain upon nor fall
behind their fixed positions for a single day, but they convert the year with
punctilious justice into 364 days.
21. In 3
years there are 1092 days, in 5 years 1820 days, and in 8 years there are 2912
days, for the moon in 3 years that adds up to 1062, so that it falls behind for
years it is 1770 days so that it falls behind by 50 days, and in 8 years it adds
to 2832 so that the moon falls behind by 80 days.
way the years are completed with precision according to their fixed positions in
the universe, and the fixed stations of the sun through which it shines, and the
gate through which it rises and sets for 30 days.
The leaders of the chiefs of the thousands, which are appointed over the whole
creation and over the stars - are counted together with
the four seasons.
25. They do
not leave from their fixed stations according to the reckoning of the year, and
render service on the days, which are not counted in the reckoning of the year.
account do people err in them, for these; luminaries scrupulously render service
to the fixed positions in the heavens, one in the first
gate, one in the third, one in the fourth,
one in the fifth, and one in the sixth.
manner the year is completed scrupulously in 364 fixed
stations of the heavens.
the signs, the duration's of time, the years, and the days were shown to me by
the angel Uriel whom the Lord God of eternal glory has appointed over all the
luminaries of heaven, both in heaven and the world.
that they, the sun, moon, and stars, and all the created objects which circulate
in all the chariots of heaven should rule in the face of the sky, and be seen on
earth to be guides for day and night.
The openings in the sky
also showed me the twelve wide openings in the sky along the course of the
chariots of the sun from which the rays of the sun break out, and from which
heat is diffused upon the earth when they are opened during the designated
opening effects the winds and the spirit of the dew when they are opened in the
extreme end (sky) of the earth through which also the sun, moon, and stars, and
all other heavenly objects come out.
many open window's to' the left and right, but one produces the heat at its
designated time in the manner of those openings through which the stars rise in
harmony with their orders, and set according to their numbers.
saw chariots in heaven running in the universe above these openings in which the
stars do not set to revolve, one of which is larger than all the rest, and it
circles the entire cosmos in the extreme ends.
The twelve winds
And I saw
the twelve wide openings to all the winds by which they come out and blow over
them are in the forefront of the sky, three in the west, three in the right of
the sky, and three on the left; that is, the first three are those on the
four of these blow out winds of blessing, and through eight of them winds of
pestilence when they are sent to destroy upon the earth, the water thereon and
them that dwell upon her, those who exist in the water, and on dry land.
winds go out through those openings called easterly, out of the first gate,
which is in the direction of the east, inclining to the south whereof proceeds
extirpation, drought, pestilence, and destruction.
5. Out of
the second gate in the middle proceeds rain and fruitfulness together with dew.
the third gate, in the direction of 'the northeast, proceeds cold and drought.
these winds southerly ones proceed through three gates, out of the first of
these gates inclining to the east, proceed the winds of heat.
the central gate next to it, proceed beautiful fragrance, dew, rain, young
locust, and desolation.
these there is the northerly winds whose name is, the Sea, there proceeds from
the sixth gate, which is in the direction of the east, dew, rain, young locust
the central gate proceed life, rain, and dew.
And out of the third gate, which is in the direction of the west
inclining towards the northeast, there proceed clouds, frost, snow, rain, dew,
and young locust.
these come the fourth winds, the westerly out of the first gate, which is in the
northeasterly direction, there proceeds dew, frost, cold, snow, and hair frost.
the central gate proceed dew, rain, peace, and blessing.
And out of the last gate, which is in the direction of the south, proceed
drought, desolation burning, and destruction.
13. Thus the
twelve openings of the four heavenly directions are completed, all their order,
their effects, and all their beneficial effects have I revealed to you O my son
The four directions
direction is called “the Orient” because it is the very first. The second is called “the South” because the Most High
will descend there, indeed the Eternally blessed One will descend there.
15. The third
is “the Occident", its name means diminished because all the luminaries
of the sky wane and descend there.
fourth whose name is the North, is divided into three parts, one of them is the
dwelling of human beings, the second, the seas of water, lakes, forest, rivers,
darkness, and clouds, and the third is the garden of righteousness.
The seven mountains and rivers
seven high mountains, higher than all the mountains of the earth, out of them
proceeds frost, and days and years traverse them in due season.
saw seven rivers upon the earth larger than all the rivers.
One of them emerges from the west and empties its water in the great sea.
19. Two come
from the northeast to the sea and empty their water into the Erythraean Sea in
20. The four
remaining ones come out of the sides-of- the northeast to their own seas, two to
the Erythraean sea, and two to the great sea pouring themselves therein, some
say, to the seventh desert.
saw large islands in the sea and the land, seventy-two
in the Erythraean Sea.
Names of the sun and moon
are the names of the sun; The first; Oryares (light of sun), and the second;
Tomas (sun, or heat).
has four names, its first is; Asenya (diminutive), its second; Moon, the third;
Full moon, and the fourth; Era (Moon).
the two great luminaries their roundness is like the roundness of the sky, and
the magnitude of these is equivalent for both.
seven portions of light greater in the Sun's sphere than in the moon and it
increases in measure the same as the Sun passes.
comes in and goes out by westerly openings, circles around by the northeast, and
rises through the eastern openings upon the face of the earth.
6. When the
moon begins, it appears in the sky one half of a seventh part, it will then
become fully illuminated from the 14th day, and completes its illumination on
the 15th, becoming fulfilled according to the sign of the year in 15 parts.
moon waxes in 15 parts. And in its
waning decreases on the first day to 1/14 of its light, on its second day it
decreases to 13 parts of light, on the third to 12, on the fourth to 11, on the
fifth to 10, on the sixth to 9 and on the seventh to eight.
8. And on
the eight to 7, on the ninth to 6, on the tenth to 5, on the eleventh to 4, on
the twelfth to 3 and on the thirteenth to one half of its preceding and on the
fourteenth all its light decreases to one half of 1/7th, and on the 15th all the
certain fixed months the moon completes its cycle every 29 days, in other in 30
days. Then Uriel showed me another
order regarding light being beamed unto the moon, from what direction it is
beamed of the bright sun.
all the seasons when the moon is made to run its cycle, the light is being
beamed into it facing the sun until the illumination is completed in the course
of fourteen days, and when it is completely lit, it radiates light in the sky.
first day it is called the new moon, because on that day the illumination begins
to be set up upon it.
completed with exactness on the day when the Sun descends into the west, and the
moon rises east in the evening shining during the night until the sun rises
opposite it, and it is over against the sun.
same side where light entered the moon, from there it also wanes until all the
illumination disappears and the days of the moon expire, its disk becoming empty
coordinates in respect to its days and seasons, in the course of its recession
it makes three months each 30 days and three months each 29 days.
this season, it makes its recession in the first period in the first gate, 177
days in the course of its progression.
it appears like a man, and by day it appears like the sky, for there is no other
thing in it except its light.
Conclusion of the astronomical vision

son I have revealed to you everything, the rules concerning all the stars of
heaven are herein concluded.
showed me all their respective rules for every day, for every season, and for
every year, the progression of each one according to the commandment.
month and week he showed me the total decrement, which the moon makes from the
first to the sixth gate. For the
light in everything is disposed-in the beginning of the decrement from the first
gate till 177 days are fulfilled, following the rule of the weeks, twenty five
and two days.

thousands of the order of the stars.

ordered for me to explain the host of heaven, he has revealed it to me, and
breathed over me concerning the luminaries the months, the festivals, the years,

The Dream Visions
Vision of the flood
will show you all the visions which I saw my son Methuselah, and recount them to
I saw two
visions before I was married; of which neither one resembled the other.
The first was when I was beginning to learn books and the second also yet
before I married your mother.
one was a scary vision regarding which I prayed to the Lord at the time when I
was sleeping in my grandfather Mahalalel's house.
I saw the
sky being taken and thrown down falling upon the earth, and as it fell I beheld
the earth being swallowed up into the great abyss.
mountains were pressed upon mountains and the hills sinking down upon hills, and
tall trees were uprooted and cast down into the deep abyss.
6. Then a
word fell into my mouth and I began to cry aloud saying; the earth is being
At this my grandfather Mahalalel woke
me up, for I was sleeping with him, and he said to me; What happen to you that
you are crying so loud my son, why are you lamenting in this manner?
recounted to him the whole vision that I Had seen, and he said; How terrifying
things you have seen my son, you have seen a powerful vision, all the sins of
the world sinking into the abyss, being destroyed with a great destruction.
my son, rise, and pray to the Lord of glory, for you are a man of faith, that a
remnant may remain upon the earth, and not the whole earth be blotted out.
For my son, all things upon the earth take place from heaven, and a great
destruction is to occur.
this I arose and prayed making petition, and I wrote down all the prayers of the
generations of the world.
will show you everything my son Methuselah, for I descended underneath and saw
the sky, the sun rising and setting, and the diminishing of the stars, the whole
earth I saw, and I recognized everything upon her.
12. So I
blessed the Lord of judgment and extolled Him, for He made the sun to come out
of the windows of the east, in that way it ascended rising upon the face of the
earth starting to go the way it was shown to go.
13. Then I
raised my hands in righteousness and blessed the Holy Great One.
And I spoke with the breath of my mouth and with the tongue of flesh,
which God made for the people, for the children of flesh to speak therewith, He
gave them the breath and mouth so they might speak with it.
art Thou O great King, Thou art mighty in Thy greatness O Lord of all the
creation of heaven, King of kings and God of the whole world.
authority and kingdom abides forever and ever, and Thy dominion throughout all
the generations of generations, all the heavens are Thy throne forever, and the
earth Thy footstool forever and ever, and ever.
created all, and rules all, nothing is too hard for Thee, not a single thing or
wisdom, Thy throne has not retreated from her place, nor from before Thy
things are known to Thee, and to see and to hear, nothing exists that can be
hidden from Thee, for Thou exposes everything.
angels of Thy heavens are now committing sin upon the earth, and Thy wrath shall
rest upon the flesh of the people until the great day of judgment.
19. Now O
Lord and God, and great King, I pray and beg Thee that Thou may sustain my
prayer and save a generation to succeed in the earth, and do not destroy all the
flesh of the people, to empty the earth to eternal destruction.
now the flesh that has angered Thee O Lord from the earth, but sustain the flesh
of righteousness and uprightness as a plant of eternal seed.
21. And hide
not Thy face from the prayer of Thy servant O Lord.
this I saw another dream, and I will show you everything my son Methuselah hear
my words and incline your ears to the dream vision of your father.
married your mother Edna, I was on my bed and dreamed a vision, and behold, a
cow emerged from the earth, and that bovid was snow white.
it came forth one female calf together with two other calves, one of, which was
dark, the other red. (Cain &
calf then gored the red calf pursuing it over the earth, and then I was no
longer able to see that red calf.
dark calf (Cain) grew big and brought along that female calf, and I saw that
many bovids proceeded from them, which resembled them and followed them.
heifer (Eve) then went from the face of that first bovid searching for that red
calf, but she was not able to find it and lamented over it with great
7. And I
beheld the first cow coming and quieted her, and she stopped her crying, and
after this she bore two snow-white cows, and thereafter many more cows as well
as dark heifers.
sleep I beheld that snow-white bull that he grew big becoming a great snow-white
bull, and many snow-white cows proceeded from him that resembled him.
in turn gave birth to many snow while cows resembling them, one following the
Falling stars among the cows
10. And again
I saw the lofty-heaven, and behold; a star fell down from heaven, which rose to
eat and be pastured among those cows.
saw the large dark cows, and they all changed their cattle sheds, their
pastures, and their calves, and they began to lament with each other.
as I observed the sky, I saw many stars (angels) descending, casting themselves
down along with that first star, and they became bovids among these calves,
being pastured together with them.
beheld them extending their sexual organs like horses commencing to mount upon
the heifers of the bovids, and they became pregnant and bore elephants, camels,
cattle then became fearful of them and began to bite and chew them, and to gore
them with their horns.
in turn began to eat those bovids, and all the children of the earth began to
tremble and shake before them, and to flee from them.
And I saw
how they gored and devoured one another, so the earth began to cry aloud.

lifted up my eyes to heaven and behold, from heaven came One in the form of a
snow-white person, and three others with Him.

continued to behold, one of the four who had come out, was casting stones from

him, and that boat was sealed over them.
again I raised my eyes towards heaven and saw a lofty ceiling with seven
cascading streams upon it, and they flowed with much water into an enclosed
beheld again that fountains were opened upon the ground of that enclosed area,
and the water began to swell upon the ground, until that whole area was covered
with water, while darkness and mist accumulated heavily.
beheld the ascent of that water until it rose above the enclosed area streaming
out above it, and thus it was standing above the ground.
everything in that area was gathered together, I saw them sinking, being
swallowed up, and perishing in that water.
boat floated above the water, while the cattle, the elephants, camels, and
donkeys, were sinking to the bottom.
8. And so I
could no longer see the animals since they were not able to come out, but
perished in the deep water.
again I saw how the cascading streams were dissipating from that high ceiling,
and also the fountains of the ground became normal, and other pits were opened.
water began to descend into them until the ground became visible and the boat
settled upon the earth, and the darkness vanished, it becoming light again.
11. Then the
snow-white cow, which had become a person, a man, came out from that boat
together with three cows, one of which was snow white similar to the first, and
one red like blood.
Flood to Exodus

of population, lions, leopards, wolves, snakes, hyena's, wild boars, foxes,
squirrels, swine, hawks, eagles, kites, striped cows, and ravens, and among them
was also born a snow-white cow.
began to bite among each other, and the snow-white cow (Abraham)
that was born
in their midst, begot a wild ass (Ishmael) and a snow-white cow.
14. The wild
ass then multiplied while the cow bore a black wild boar (Esau)
and a snow-white
sheep (Jacob). The boar then bore
healthy beasts, while the latter bore twelve sheep.
15. And when
these twelve sheep had grown up, they gave away one of their own members
(Joseph) to the donkeys, and these in turn to the wolves, so this sheep grew up
in the midst of the wolves.
16. Then the
Lord brought the eleven sheep to dwell with that one sheep, and to be pastured
in the midst of the wolves, and they multiplied becoming many flocks of sheep.
wolves began to fear them, wherefore they tortured them until their little ones
were being killed casting their little ones into a river with much water.
sheep began to cry aloud on behalf of their little ones, complaining to the
Lord, but one sheep that had been saved from the wolves, fled and escaped to the

the sheep continuing to lament and cry aloud, and kept praying to their Lord
with all their strength until at their pleas the Lord of the sheep descended
from His lofty palace to visit them.

the wolves that he should warn them not to touch the sheep.
sheep (Moses) then went to the wolves according to the word of the Lord together
with another sheep he had met, (Aaron) and so the two went and arrived in the assembly
of wolves and spoke to them warning them not to touch the sheep.
I saw how the wolves intensified their pressure upon the sheep, and they cried
aloud with all their strength.
Lord of the sheep came to their rescue whereupon the wolves were whipped, and
they began to make lamentations, while the sheep became quiet after this and
stopped crying aloud.
beheld the sheep departing from the wolves, while the eyes of the wolves were
dazzled, and yet they went out with all their might to pursue the sheep.
Lord of the sheep went with them as their Leader, and while all these sheep were
following Him, His face was glorious, adorable, and marvelous to behold
26. As for
the wolves, they continued to pursue the sheep and found them at a pool of
water, and this pool of water was rent asunder.
The water stood apart on one side and the other before the eyes of the
sheep, with the Lord, their Leader, standing between them and the wolves.
wolves however were not able to see the sheep as they walked through that pool
of water, but the sheep having gone through, the wolves came after them into
that pool of water.
28. Then when
they saw the Lord of the sheep, they turned in order to flee from before His
face, but that pool of water gathered itself together immediately returning to
its normal state, and the waters becoming full rose above the wolves, covering

sheep then proceeded from that water into a desert with no grass nor water, and
they opened their mouth and cried, and the Lord of the sheep brought them to
pasture and gave them grass and water.
sheep, which led them, ascended the summit of a lofty rock, and the Lord of the
sheep sent him again to them.
3. Then I
beheld how the Lord of the sheep stood before them, His appearance was majestic,
marvelous, and powerful, and the sheep beholding Him were afraid before His
4. And they
trembling and with fear cried aloud to that sheep leading them and to the other
in their midst, saying;

And that sheep leading them turned, and again ascended the summit of that
the sheep began to be dim sighted in their eyes and strayed from the path shown
to them, but that one sheep was not aware of that.
7. Then the
Lord of the sheep became angry with them with great wrath, and then also that
one sheep became aware of it, and descended from the summit of the rock.
coming to the sheep he found that most had been blinded in their eyes and gone
astray, and those who saw him became afraid trembling at his presence and wished
to return into the folds.
sheep then took some other sheep together, and coming to the sheep that had gone
astray, he slew them, and the sheep were frightened in his presence.
sheep thus caused many who had gone astray to return, bringing them back into

in my vision how that sheep was transformed into a man, and built a house for
the Lord of the sheep, and placing the sheep in it.
beheld until that sheep, which had met the one, which was their leader, fell
asleep, and all the senior sheep perished junior ones talking their places.
coming into a pasture they approached a stream of water (Jordan) and their
leader, the sheep that had become a man, he departed from them, and the sheep
sought for him, and a great cry went out over him.
Israel entering the Promised Land
kept seeing until they ceased crying for that sheep, and they crossed that
stream of water, and halted.
15. And the
two that were leading them made an agreement with them, and led them, and I saw
the sheep arriving at a very pleasant place, in a beautiful and glorious land.
16. And they
were satisfied, and the house was in their midst in that beautiful land to keep
their eyes opened.
eyes became dim-sighted again until other sheep arose and led them, and they
would return them opening their eyes.
From Saul to Solomon
dogs, the foxes and the wild boars began to devour the sheep until the Lord of
the sheep raised up another from them, a ram to lead them.
ram (Saul) began to fight those dogs, the foxes, and the wild boars on all sides
20. And I saw
how this ram whose eyes had been opened, how he abandoned his own glory and
began to desert those sheep, and to trample upon them, and left without dignity.
21. Then the
Lord of the sheep sent another (David) whom He promoted to become a ram to the
sheep, to lead them in the stead of him who had abandoned his own glory
22. And going
to him privately, He raised that ram making him judge and leader, all the while
the dogs continued to covet the sheep.
23. The first
ram then persecuted the second ram, but he escaped from his presence, and I saw
that the dogs toppled that first ram.
24. And the
second ram arose and led the sheep, and that ram begot many sheep, and fell
little sheep (Solomon) became a ram in his place, a judge and leader of those
sheep, and the sheep grew and multiplied.
26. And all
the dogs, the foxes, and wild boars feared and fled from before him, so the wild
beast were no longer able to return among the sheep, or to take anything from

Lord of the sheep now the house was small, but the tower was truly elevated and
lofty, and the Lord of the sheep stood upon that tower, and they offered a full
table before Him.
The two kingdoms
I saw the sheep how they went astray in various ways, abandoning the house of
Lord of the sheep called some from among them (prophets) sending these to them,
but the sheep began to slay them.

the sheep, but they wanted to kill him, but the Lord of the sheep caused him to
ascend to me, and settled down.

I saw that they fully abandoned the house of the Lord and His tower becoming
blindfolded and going astray.

the Lord of the sheep how He executed much slaughter among them in their flocks,
He summoned the slaughter vindicating His place.
them in the hands of the lions, leopards, wolves, and hyena's, as well as in the
hands of the foxes, and all the wild beasts, and these wild beasts of the
wilderness began to tear the sheep to pieces.
beheld how He left that house of theirs and the tower, and gave all of them over
into the hands of the lions and wild beasts to tear and eat them.
Enoch cries for the sheep
began to cry aloud with all my strength calling upon the Lord of the sheep to
reveal to Him concerning the destruction of the sheep, for He had fed them to
the wild beasts.
remained silent and content, because they were being devoured, swallowed up, and
snatched away. So He abandoned them
into the hands of the wild beasts for food.
The Lord appoints shepherds
summoned seventy shepherds and surrendered the sheep to them that they might
spoke to the shepherds and their colleagues saying; “From now on let each one
of you graze the sheep, and perform all that I command you.
13. I shall
hand them over to you duly counted, and shall tell you which from among them are
to be destroyed and you shall destroy them.”
And so He
handed the sheep over to them, and calling another,
(Enoch) He told him saying; “Take
note, behold everything which the shepherds will do to these sheep, for they
will destroy a greater number from among them than what I have commanded them.
write down every excess of destruction that will be brought about by these
shepherds, how many they destroy according to My command, and how many they will
destroy of their own accord.
down all the destruction that each and every shepherd causes against their
record, and read aloud to Me in each case how many they destroy, and how many
they give over to destruction, so that it may become a testimony for Me against
I may know all the deeds of the shepherds to evaluate them, and to see whether
they acted according to My command, which I commanded them.
they do not know it, "do not" reveal it to them, "nor
admonish" them, but write down every destruction caused by the shepherds
for each and every one in his appointed time, and elevate all of it to Me.”
The shepherds unfaithful
beheld those shepherds in their appointed times pasturing the sheep, and that
they began killing and destroying many in excess of what had been commanded
them, abandoning them in the hands of the lions.
20. And the
lions and leopards ate and devoured the majority of the sheep, and also the wild
boars ate along with them.
21. The tower
then was burned and the house was plowed, and I became exceedingly sorrowful on
account of that tower and for that house which was being plowed
I was unable to see whether those sheep could enter that house.
shepherds and their colleagues handed over the sheep to the wild beasts to
devour them, and each one at his appointed time received the sheep in fixed
number and handed them to their colleagues in fixed number.
other (the recorder) was to write down how many of the sheep would perish, for
each and everyone killed and destroyed in excess of their order.
The scribe of righteousness
began to cry aloud on account of those sheep, and I saw that writer in my vision
how he wrote down that which was destroyed by those shepherds.
he writes that book, and elevates it to the Lord, showing everything that each
one has done, what they have eliminated, and all that they gave over to
27. And when the book was elevated before the Lord of the sheep, He took it from his hand, read it, sealed it, and placed it down.
From Zerubabel to Israel's return
I saw the shepherds pasturing for twelve hours when three sheep returned, and
arriving, they began to rebuild that house which had fallen.
29. And the
wild boars came trying to hinder them, but were unsuccessful, and they raised up
that tower, which is called "The high tower".
30. But then
they started to place a table before it the food upon which was polluted and
impure, and with this the eyes of the sheep became so dim sighted that they
could not see, and likewise with their shepherds.
31. And they
were delivered to their shepherds for an excessive destruction so that the sheep
were trampled upon and eaten.
Lord of the sheep remained silent until all the sheep were dispersed into the
woods and were mixed with the wild beasts so that they could not be rescued from
33. The one
then who was writing the book, elevated and showed it to the Lord to read the
grave words, and he pleaded with Him begging Him on account of the sheep while
manifesting to Him all the deeds of the shepherds giving testimony against those
34. And He
taking it placed that very book beside Him and departed.
So I saw
thirty-seven shepherds pasturing the sheep, all of them completing their own
respective periods like the former ones.
aliens took the sheep to pasture them in their own respective periods, each
shepherd in his own period.
own eyes I saw all the birds of heaven, eagles, vultures, kites, and ravens
coming, with the eagles leading all the birds.
began to eat those sheep, digging out their eyes and eating their flesh.
sheep cried aloud, for their flesh was being eaten by the birds, and I too cried
aloud lamenting in my sleep on account of that shepherd who was grazing
40. And I
kept beholding until those sheep were eaten by the dogs, the eagles, and the
kites, and they left absolutely nothing, neither flesh nor skin, nor sinew of
them till only their bones stood bare, which then fell to the ground, and the
sheep became few.
41. Thus I
kept seeing until twenty-three shepherds pastured them completing fifty-eight
seasons in their own respective periods.
The horns being crushed
behold, lambs were born from those snow-white sheep, and they began to open
their eyes and to cry aloud to the sheep.
2. But as
for the sheep, they did not listen to what the lambs were telling them, but they
became exceedingly deafened, and their eyes exceedingly dim sighted.
saw in the vision ravens flying above those lambs, and seizing them they smashed
them and ate them.
how these lambs grew horns, but the ravens crushed their horns.
The ram of the Lord
5. And I
beheld one great horn sprouting on one of those sheep, and he opened their eyes,
and they did see, their eyes being opened.
6. And he
cried aloud to the sheep, and all the rams seeing him ran unto him.
7. But in
spite of all this those eagles, vultures, ravens, and kites until now continued
to rip the sheep swooping down upon them eating them.
8. And as
for the sheep they remained silent, but the rams were lamenting and crying
I saw the shepherds coming along with the vultures and the kites crying aloud to
the ravens that they should smash the horn of that ram.
10. But he
battled with them, and fought with him, and while battling he cried aloud so
that help should come.
11. And I saw
till that man (Enoch) who writes down the names of the shepherds and that elevates them
to the Lord of the sheep, came, it was he who helped him and revealed something
to him. Thus help came down for
12. And I
beheld the Lord of the sheep coming down in wrath, and all who saw Him fled and
fell into darkness from before His face.
the eagles, the vultures, ravens, and the kites gathered with all the sheep
of the field lining up with them, and having thus come together in unity,
they all cooperated to smash the horn of that ram.
And I saw
that man who was writing a book by the command of the Lord, for he opened that
book of destruction, which showed what the last twelve shepherds had caused.
15. And he
revealed it before the Lord of the sheep that their destruction was greater than
Day of the Lord's vengeance
16. And I
beheld until the Lord of the sheep came to them and took in His hand the rod of
His wrath, and smote the earth.
the beasts and the birds fell down from the midst of those sheep and were
swallowed up in the earth, and the earth covered them.
18. Then I
saw that a sword was given to the sheep, and the
sheep proceeded against all the beast of the field to kill them, and all the
beast and birds of heaven fled from before their face.
The Lord begins judgment
1. And I saw
a throne being erected in a pleasant land, and the Lord of the sheep sat upon
it, and He took the sealed books and they were opened in His presence.
Lord called the first seven snow white ones and ordered them to bring before Him
those that arose from that first star and from among those other stars whose
sexual organs were like those of horses, as well as that first star which had
brought all of them before Him, and He spoke to that man who had done the
writing in His presence (Enoch), him being one of those seven snow white ones,
these seventy shepherds to whom I handed the sheep, who decided to kill more
than they were ordered to do, and I saw all of them bound as they stood before
5. Then His
judgment took place, first among the stars, which were found guilty and received
went to the place of condemnation, and were thrown in the abyss full of fire and
flames and pillars of fire.
those seventy shepherds were judged and found guilty, and were cast in that
fiery abyss. Meanwhile I saw how
another abyss like unto it full of fire was opened wide in the midst of the
8. And they
brought those blinded sheep all of which were judged and found guilty, and cast
in that fiery abyss and were burned. The
abyss then is to the right of that house.
9. Thus I
saw those sheep while they were burning, their bones also burning.
The new temple build
10. Then I
stood still looking at that ancient house as it was being transformed.
pillars and columns were pulled out and the ornaments were packed and taken out
together with them, and abandoned in a certain place in the south of the land.
And I saw
how the Lord of the sheep brought about a new house, greater and loftier than
the first one.
set it up in the location of the first, which had been covered over, all the
pillars were new, the columns new, the ornaments new, as well as greater than
those of the first house, which was gone, and all the sheep were within it.
saw all the sheep that had survived, as well as all the animals upon the earth
and the birds of heaven, falling down and worshipping those sheep, making
petition to them, and obeying them in every respect.
15. Then I
saw those three who were wearing snow-white clothing, the former ones who had
caused me to go up, and they took me by the hand, and also the hand of that ram
16. And they
elevated me and set me down in the midst of those sheep prior to the occurrence
sheep now were all snow white, and their wool illustrious and clean, all these
who had been dispersed, and the beast of the field and the birds of the sky were
gathered to that house.
Lord of the sheep rejoiced with great joy because they all had become gentle and
had returned to His house.
19. And I
beheld until they laid down that sword which was given to the sheep, returning
it to the house, and it was sealed in the presence of the Lord.
20. All the
sheep then were invited to that house; only it could not contain them all.
21. And the
eyes of all of them were opened, and they beheld the beautiful things, there was
not a single one among them that could not see, and I noticed that the house was
very large, wide, and exceedingly full.
22. Then I
saw that a snow-white cow was born with huge horns, and all the beasts of the
field and the birds of the sky feared him, and made petition to him continually.
And I saw
how all their kindred was transformed becoming snow-white cows, and the first
among them became something great, a great beast with huge horns on its head.
24. And the
Lord of the sheep rejoiced over it, and over all the cows, and I myself became
filled in their midst.
25. Then I
awoke having seen all this. This is
the vision, which I saw while I was sleeping, and awakening I blessed the Lord
of righteousness, and gave glory to Him.
26. And I
wept with great weeping, my tears would not stop until I had no more endurance
left on account of what I had seen, all that was to be until its fulfillment.
27. The deeds
of the people were also known to me, each according to its type.
And on that night I remembered the first dream, and wept on its account,
and I was restless because I had seen this vision.

Revelation of the weeks
6. And Enoch
recounted from the books saying. Concerning
the children of righteousness and the elect ones of the world, and concerning
the plant of truth I will convey to you these things my children.
Enoch am letting you know that which was revealed to me from the heavenly
vision, that which I learned from the words of the holy angels, and understood
from the heavenly tablets.
began to recount from the books and said: I was born the seventh during the
first week in which period judgment and righteousness continued to endure.
in the second week there shall arise great and evil things, deceit will grow,
and therein the first consummation will take place, but therein also a certain
man shall be saved.
10. After this injustice shall become greater, and He shall make a law for sinners.
11. Then in
the third week a man shall be elected as the plant of righteous judgment
(David), and after him shall emerge One as the Eternal plant of righteousness
the completion of that week visions of old and righteous ones shall be seen, and a
law shall be made with an enclosure for all generations.

After that in the sixth week, an apostate generation shall arise, its
deeds shall be many, all of which will be criminal.
17. And at
its completion there shall be elected the elect one of righteousness from the
Eternal Plant of righteousness (the Lion) to whom shall be given sevenfold
knowledge and wisdom.
18. For what
kind of human being is there that is able to hear the voice of the Holy One
without being shaken?
there that is able to ponder His thoughts, or who is there that can look
directly at all the great works?
20. What kind
of a person is he that can understand the activities of heaven so that he can
see a soul, or perhaps even a spirit?
21. Or if one
ascended into heaven and saw all its extensions, how shall he contemplate them,
or speak of them?
22. What kind
of person is anyone able to understand the nature of the width and length of the

has the extend of all these been shown? Is
there perhaps any human being able to understand the length of heaven, or the
extend of its altitude, or upon what it is founded, or the number of the stars
and where they rest?
Enoch gives advice
24. Now then
my children I say to you; Love righteousness and walk therein, for the way of
righteousness is worthy of being embraced, but the ways of wickedness shall soon
diminish and perish.
25. To known
persons the ways of justice and death are revealed as soon as they are born, and
they keep themselves at a distance from them.
you, you righteous ones, I say do not walk in the evil way, or in the way of
death, do not draw near to them lest you be destroyed.
27. But seek
for yourself, and chose righteousness and the elect life, walk in the way of
peace, so you shall have life and be worthy.
28. Hold fast
to my words in the thoughts of your heart, and let them not be erased thereof,
for I know that sinners will counsel the people to perform evil crafts, and
every place will welcome it.
Woe unto the sinners
you who build oppression and injustice, who lay foundations for deceit, they
shall soon be demolished, and you will have no peace.
those who build their houses with sin, for they shall be demolished from their
foundations, and fall by the sword, they who amass gold and silver shall quickly

out of your riches, for you do not remember the Most High.
days of your wealth you committed oppression, you have become ready for death,
and for the day of darkness, and for the day of great judgment.
5. Thus I
speak to give it you to know, for He who created you will throw you down upon
your own righteousness, and there shall be no mercy for you, and your Creator
shall rejoice at your destruction.

will catch up with you sinners. And you righteous ones do not fear the sinners, for the
Lord will deliver them into your hand so that you may carry out all that you
desire against them.

on account of your sins.

you sinners, for you persecute the righteous, you shall be handed over to them
to be persecuted by oppression, its yoke shall be heavy on you.
Difference for righteous ones and sinners
hopeful you righteous ones for sinners shall soon perish from before you;
authority shall be given you over them just as you wish.
13. For in
the day of the sinner's tribulation - your children shall be raised up high like
eagles, higher than the vultures will your dwellings be.
14. You shall
ascend but they shall enter the crevices of the earth and the clefts of the
rocks, like squirrels before oppressors.
sirens shall be blown over them wailing like the buzzing of wild bees, but you
who have known pain fear not, for there shall be healing medicine for you. A
bright light shall enlighten you, and you shall hear a voice of rest from
16. But woe
to you sinners, for your money makes you appear righteous but your heart
reprimands you like real sinners, and this very thing shall be as witness
against you, as a record of your evil deeds.
17. Woe to
you who eat the best of bread and drink wine in large bowls, trampling upon the
weak people with your might.
you who have water available to you at all times, for soon you will be consumed
and whither away, for you have forsaken the fountain of life.
19. Woe to
you who carry out oppression, deceit and blasphemy, there shall be a record of
evil against you.
20. Woe to
you, you powerful people, you who coerce the righteous with your power, the day
of your destruction is coming.
days, at the time of your condemnation, many good days shall come for the
confidant you righteous ones for the sinners are due for shame, they shall
perish on the day of oppression.
23. Take this
for granted for the Most High shall record their destruction for you, and the
angels of heaven shall rejoice over their destruction.
24. What do
you intend to do O you sinners? Where
will you flee on the day of judgment when you hear the sound of the prayers of
the righteous ones?
you deceitful ones, you are just like them against whom you witness, you have
become bedfellows with sinners.
days the prayers of the righteous ones shall reach unto the Lord, but as for all
you sinners, your day shall surely arrive.
He shall read aloud regarding every aspect of your mischief in the
presence of the great Holy One.
28. Then your
faces shall be covered with shame, and He will cast out every deed, which is
build upon oppression.
29. Woe to
you sinners who are in the midst of the sea and on dry land whose records
testify against them.
30. Woe to
you who gain silver and gold by unjust means, you that say.
We have grown rich, accumulated goods, we acquired everything we desired,
so let us do whatever we like, for we have gathered silver, we have filled our
treasure like water, and many are the laborers in our houses.
31. Your lies
flow like water, and your wealth shall not endure, but it shall take off from
you quickly, for you acquired it unjustly, wherefore you shall be given over for
a great curse.
swear to you, to the wise and to the foolish, for you shall see many things upon

ornaments than a virgin

edibles they shall be wasted like water.
reason they are devoid of knowledge and wisdom, and so they shall perish
together with all their glory and honor.
5. Then in
dishonor, in slaughter, and in great misery their spirits shall be cast away.
6. I have
sworn to you sinners, in the same manner in which a mountain has never been
turned into a servant, nor ever a hill became a maidservant, so neither sin has
been imported into the world.
But it is
the people who themselves have invented it, and those who commit it, shall come
under a great curse.
Why is a
child not given unto a woman? It is
on account of her deeds that she dies without children.
to you sinners by the Holy Great One that all your evil deeds are revealed in
the heavens, none of your deeds are hidden.
10. Think not
to say that you neither knew nor saw all your sins being recorded every day in
the presence of the Most High.
on know that all your injustices, which you unjustly commit, are written down
every day until the day of your judgment.
you fools, for you shall perish through your folly, you did not listen to the
wise, wherefore you shall neither receive the good things.
13. And now
know that you are ready for the day of destruction, hope not that you shall live
you sinners; you shall depart, and die.
for what reason you have been ready for the day of great judgment, for that day
of anguish and great pain for your spirits.
15. Woe to
you obstinate of heart, doing evil and devouring blood, from where will you find
good things that you might eat and drink to be satisfied, even if from the good
things which the Lord Most High stocks in the earth in plenty?
For no peace exists for you.
you who love unrighteousness, why should you hope for good things to yourselves?
Know that you shall be given over into the hands of the righteous
ones, and they shall cut of your necks, and slay you, and not have compassion on
18. Woe to
you who rejoice in the suffering of the righteous ones, for no grave shall be
dug for you.
you who attempt to set at nothing the words of the righteous ones, for you shall
have no hope of life.
you who write down false words, and cords of wickedness, you write down your
lies so the people may commit wicked acts, and they cause others to commit
wicked acts, you shall have no peace, but die quickly.
you who cause wickedness, who glorify and honor false words, you are lost, and
have no life of good things.
you who alter the words of truth, perverting the eternal law, they do not
consider themselves guilty of sin, they shall be trampled on upon the earth
23. In those
days be ready you righteous ones to raise up your prayer as a memorial and as a
testimony before angels, and they shall bring the sins of the sinners as a
testimony before the Most High.
24. In those
days the nations shall be confounded, and the tribes of the nations shall rise
to the destruction of sinners.
days pregnant women shall abort their infants, casting them from them, and also
abandon their other children, they shall cast suckling infants from them and not
return to them, nor have compassion upon them.
to you sinners, it is for your sins that the day of unceasing blood has been
prepared, for those that worship carved images of stones and of gold or silver
or of wood or clay. And for those
who worship evil spirits, demons, and all sorts of idols not according to
knowledge, for them is that day prepared.
shall not obtain any manner of help form these idols, but they shall become more
wicked on account of the folly of their hearts, their eyes will be blindfolded
for the vain fear in their heart, and for the visions of their dreams.
28. For these
they will become wicked and fearful, since they wrought all their deeds in
falsehood, and worshipped stone, therefore shall they perish suddenly.
blessed will be those in these days that accept the words of wisdom, and that
understand them to follow the path of the Most High, for they shall be walking
in the path of His righteousness, and not become wicked with the wicked, and
they shall be saved.
30. Woe to
you who bring evil to your neighbors, for you will be slain in hell.
you who make sinful deceitful measures, who acquire worldly knowledge, for you
shall be consumed by them.
Woe to you who build your houses with the hard toil of others, whose
building blocks are bricks and stones of sin, I tell you, you have no peace.
you who reject the foundations, the eternal inheritance of the fathers, who
pursue wind and idols, for there shall be no rest for you.
34. Woe to
you who engage in oppression, and aid injustice, slaying your neighbors until
the day of great judgment, for He will debase your glory.
instill evil into your hearts, and arouse His anger and destroy all of you by
the sword; the holy and righteous ones shall recount your sins.
Day of great judgment
days the fathers will be slain together with his sons in a single place, and
brothers shall fall in death together with their friends until a stream of blood
For a man shall not be able to withhold his hands from his sons, nor
from his sons sons to kill them, nor shall it be possible for the sinner to withhold
his hands from his honored brother.
Because from dawn till sunset they shall kill each other, and
the horse shall walk through the blood of sinners up to his chest, and the
chariot shall sink down up to its top.
days the angels shall descend into the secret places and gather together into
one place all those who aided sin.
Most High will arise on that day of judgment in order to execute a great
judgment upon all the sinners.
6. He will
set a guard of holy angels over all the righteous and holy ones, and they will
keep them as the apple of the eye until all evil and sinners are brought to an
time on, the righteous ones shall sleep a restful sleep, and there will be no
one to make them afraid.
wise people shall see, and the sons of the earth shall give heed to all the
words of this book, they shall know that their wealth shall not be able to save
them at the place where their sins shall cut them down.
No rescue for the sinners
you sinners, you who oppress the righteous ones in a day of anguish, burning
them with fire, for you shall be rewarded according to your deeds.
you hard of heart that watches to perform evil, for fear shall seize you, and no
one shall come to your aid.
11. Woe to
you sinners because of the words of your mouth, and for your wicked deeds, for
in blazing flames worse than fire, you shall burn.
12. And now
know that your deeds shall be investigated from the sun, the moon, the stars,
and by the angels in heaven, for all the sins, which you committed on the earth.
decree is with the righteous ones, every cloud, mist, and dew, and the rain shall witness against you, for
they all shall be withheld from you from descending to you, indeed they will not
heed you because of your sins.
offer gifts to the rain that it may not be hindered from descending to you, or
perhaps the dew will accept gold or silver from you in order to descend.
others will fall upon you, namely the frost, and the snow with its cold, and all
the winds of snow with their scourges, in those days you will not be able to
stand before them.
Learn from nature
the heavens you sons of the heavens and all the works of the Most and be afraid
to perform evil in His presence.
closes the windows of heaven and hinders the rain from descending on earth for
you, then what will you do?
18. Or if He
sends His anger against you for your deeds, will it not be you to entreat Him?
But because you spoke bold and hard words against His righteousness
therefore you shall have no peace.
19. Will you
not consider the sailors how their ships are tossed up and down by the billows,
and shaken by the winds, and they become anxious, and thus seized by fear, they
will throw all their valuable property overboard into the sea.
think in their hearts that the sea will swallow them up, and they will perish in
it, but is not the whole sea, all her waters, and all her movements the very
makings of the Most High?
not He who ordered her course of action, and her waters to be stayed by the
sand? At His rebuke they become
frightened, and she dries up and the fish and all that is in her dies.
But you O
sinners, you, who are on earth, you fear Him not, but did He not make the
heavens and the earth and all that is in them?
Who is He
that gives knowledge of wisdom to all those who move upon the earth and in the
sea? Do not the sailors fear the
sea? Yet the sinners do not fear
the Most High.
Terror of the Day of Judgment
days when He brings terror and fire, where will you flee?
And where will you find safety when He flings his sword against you?
Will you not fear and faint?
25. All the
luminaries shall faint with great fear, the whole earth will faint and tremble
and panic, and the angels shall fulfill their orders.
26. Then the
children of the earth will seek to hide themselves from the presence of the
great glory trembling and confounded, you are accursed forever you sinners,
there is no peace for you.
27. But you
righteous do not fear, but be hopeful, you who die in righteousness, be not sad
that your souls have gone down into Sheol in sorrow, or that your flesh did not
fare well in your earthly existence.
the time of your earthly existence among the sinners, your time was a time of
curse and of plagues, and when you died, the sinners spoke over you saying; As
we die so the righteous died, what then have they gained by their deeds?
behold they died just like us, in grief and in darkness, what thus have they
more than we? For now we have
become equal, what will they receive, or what will they see in forever, for
behold, they have surely died, and from now on they shall not see light forever.
30. But now I
tell you sinners, you have satiated yourself with food and drink through robbery
and sin, impoverishing people and gaining property, and seeing good days.
saw the righteous how they came to their end while no injustice was found on
them, even to their death, and so they perished and became like those who were
not, and descended into Sheol and their spirits also.
The blessing upon the righteous
1. But hear
this; I swear to you, you righteous ones, by the glory of the Great One, and by
the glory of his kingdom, - and I swear by Him for I know this mystery.
2. I have
read the tablets of heaven, I saw the holy writings, and I have understood what
was written in them, the inscriptions were concerning you.
good things and joy and honor are prepared for and written down for the souls of
those who died in righteousness.
Many things, good things shall be given you, the reward of your
labors, your lot exceeds that of the living ones.
spirits that died in righteousness shall live and rejoice, they shall not
perish, nor shall their memorial cease from before the face of the Great One to
all generations of the world, do not therefore worry about their humiliation.
you sinners, when you are dead those who are like you will say of you, happy are
sinners they saw all their days they died in prosperity and wealth, they did not
experience struggle nor battle in their lifetime, but died in glory, nor was
their judgment in their lifetime.
7. But you
yourselves know that your souls will be brought down to hell, and that you shall
experience evil and great tribulation in darkness, in nets, and in burning
souls shall enter into great judgment, the great judgment of all the generations
of the world, woe to you because there is no peace for you.
to you righteous and kind ones, in your lifetime do not say.
In our days we have suffered toil, hardship, and experienced much
trouble, we have faced many evil things and become consumed.
not say; we have died and become few in the smallness of our spirits, nor that
you have been destroyed and tortured, and that you found none to help you with a
word, and had no hope of life from one day to the next.
not; We had hoped to become the head but have become the tail, we toiled but had
no authority over our toil, instead we became food for sinners and oppressors,
they made their yoke heavy on us, hating us, goading us, and surrounding us,
having become masters over us.
have bowed our necks to those who hated us, but they had no pity, we wanted to
get away from them to escape and be at rest, but we found no place to which to
flee and be safe from them.
In our tribulation we brought charges against them before the
authorities crying out against those who were devouring us, but they paid no
attention to our cries nor listened to our voice.
they assisted those who robbed and devoured us, those who were causing us to
diminish; the authorities concealed their injustices and did not remove the
yokes of those who devoured us.
scattered us, murdered us, but the authorities covered up their murders, and
would not remember that they had lifted up their hands against us.
Justice will be for the righteous
But now I
swear to you that in heaven the angels will remember you for good before the
glory of the Great One, and your names will be written before the glory of the
Be hopeful therefore, for formerly you pined away in evil and toil, but now you
shall shine like the lights in heaven, and you shall be seen, and the
windows of heaven shall be opened for you.

your tribulation shall be for investigation from the authorities against them
and against everyone who assisted in plundering you.

about to be making a great rejoicing like the angels of heaven.
not have to hide on the great day of judgment, nor shall you be found as the
sinners, but the eternal judgment for all the generations of the world shall be
far from you.
not you righteous ones when you see sinners waxing strong and flourishing, do
not partake with them, but keep far from them who lean on their injustice, for
you are to be partakers with the good-hearted people of the Lord.
you sinners, even if you say that all our sins shall not be investigated, nor
are written down, nonetheless your sins are being written down every single day.
now I say to you that light and darkness, both day and night testify to all your

them from the beginning.

Scriptures of joy for truth and great wisdom.

his eyes the house glowed with light.

have begotten a strange son, he is not an ordinary human being, but he looks to
me like the children of the angels of heaven.
He is not
like us, his eyes are like the rays of the sun, and his face glorious, it does
not appear to me that he is of me, but rather of angels, so I beg you go to
entreat your father Enoch to learn the truth from him.
then hearing the words of his son went and came to us at the ends of the earth
having heard that I (Enoch) was there, and he cried aloud.
said to him; why have you come here my son?
And he said; On account of a great distress, for a strange thing have I
my son Lamech a son has been born, one whose image and form are not like that of
human beings. His color is white as
snow and redder than a rose, and his hair white as wool, and his eyes when he
opened them lighted the house, and when he was taken up by the midwife he spoke
blessings to the Lord of heaven.
father Lamech then became afraid, not believing that he was of him, but of the
image of the angels of heaven, and so I have come to you that you may make known
to me the real truth.
answered him; The Lord will surely make new things upon the earth, I saw this
already in a vision and made it known to you.

the generations of my father Jared they transgressed the word of God, the law of
heaven, they commit sin, transgressing the commandment.

watchers) have joined themselves with women committing sin with them; they took
wives from them and begot children by them.

indeed righteous, and call his name Noah, for he shall be the remnant for you.
his sons shall be saved from the destruction that shall come upon the earth for
all the sin and oppression that exists upon it, which will be done in his days.
this there will occur yet greater oppression than what was done the first time,
for I know the mysteries of the holy ones, the Lord having revealed them to me,
and I have read the heavenly tablets.
beheld the writing on them that one generation shall be more wicked than the
other until a righteous generation shall arise, the wickedness shall perish, and
sin disappear from the earth, with good things coming upon her.
17. And now
my son, go and make known to your son Lamech that this son who has been born to
him is not in falsehood.
then having heard the words of his father Enoch returned home, and called the
name of that son Noah, for he will comfort the earth after the destruction.

those to come after him who will observe the law in the last days.)

tossing it to and fro.
asked one of the holy angels that were with me saying; What is this bright
thing, for it is not heaven, but merely a flame of fire burning and voices of
weeping and of crying and lamenting as well as strong pain.
said to me; This place which you see, in here will be taken the spirits of
sinners, and of blasphemers, of those who do evil and
who alter the things which the Lord has spoken by the mouth of the prophets.
that they have spoken must be brought to bear.
All this is written and sealed in heaven above so that the angels may
preserve them and know what is to befall sinners, the spirits of those that err,
as well as of those who defiled their bodies not honoring God, and working with
who loved God, and not the world, but who gave their bodies over to suffering,

completed 365 years.
first day of the first month I was in my house alone resting on my couch
sleeping. And a great distress came
upon me in my heart, and I wept in my sleep, but I could not understand what
this distress was, or what was happening to me.
appeared to me two men exceedingly large, such as I had not seen on earth, with
their faces shining like the sun and their eyes like burning light, and sparks
came from their lips. And their
clothing was of various kind in appearance purple, and their wings brighter than
gold, their hands whiter than snow.
standing at the head of my couch they called me by name, I then arose from my
sleep, and clearly saw them standing in front of me, and I saluted them while I
was taken by fear, my face changing from terror.
said to me; Have courage Enoch, do not fear, God has sent us to you and behold;
today you shall ascend with us into heaven. Tell then your sons and your household that they must do
without you on earth in your house, and let no one look for you until the Lord
returns you to them.

sons telling them the marvels that those men had told me.

From chapters 24-29
Lord said to me; Enoch sit down to the left of Me with Gabriel.
And I bowed and did so, and
the Lord spoke to me saying;
that you see Enoch, all that which stands still or is moving I created from
none-being, the visible from the invisible.
Enoch and understand my words, for not to My angels have I told my secrets, nor
did I relay to them their origin, nor my endless realm, nor have they understood
My creating which I tell you now.
before anything was visible, I alone used to go about in the invisible things
like as the sun from east to west, and from west to east.

created, and I conceived the thought of placing foundations, and of creating a

invisible, and Adoil came down extremely large, and I beheld him, and behold, he
had a belly of great light.
said to him; become undone Adoil and let the visible come out of you. And he became undone, and a great light came out, and I was
in the midst of that great light.
And so as
there is born light of light, there came forth a great age showing all creation
which I had thought to create, and I saw that it was good.
placed for myself a throne, and took my seat upon it, and said to the light; Go
up higher and fix yourself to a foundation to the highest things.

summoned the very lowest a second time saying; Let Archas come forth solid.
And he came forth solid and heavy and red from the invisible.
said; be opened Archas and let birth be from you.
And he became undone, and out of him came an age very large and dark
carrying the creation of all lower things, and I saw that it was good.
said to him; Go down below and make yourself firm, and be for a foundation of
the lower things, And he went down and fixed himself becoming the foundation for
the lower things, and below the darkness there is nothing else.
23. And I
commanded that there be taken from light and from darkness, and said; Be
thickened. And it became thus, and
I spread it out and it became water, and I spread it out over the darkness below

light around the water, and created seven circles inside it, and gave it the
appearance of crystal, wet and dry like glass, and to be the circuit for the

showed each one its course and the seven stars each in its own heaven that they
might travel accordingly, and I saw that it was good.

made separation between light and darkness, that is to say, in the midst of the
waters one-way and the other.
