58.1 And I began to speak The Third Parable. About The Righteous and about The Chosen.
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.
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 day.
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 Spirits.
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."
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 with fear?"
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 this."
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 Shemyaza, and the second Urakiba, and the third Ramshel, and the fourth Kokabel, and the fifth Tamiel, and the sixth Ratsamel, and the seventh Daniel, and the eighth Ezeqiel, and the ninth Barakel, and the tenth Azazel, and the eleventh Armaros, the twelfth Batriel, the thirteenth Ananel, the fourteenth Zakiel, the fifteenth Shemshiel, the sixteenth Shahariel, the seventeenth Toniel, the eighteenth Turiel, the nineteenth Yamiel, the twentieth Zahariel.
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 waters, 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.
