Book of Gentiles

Book of Gentiles tells the stories of the gentiles from the declaration to the end of this age.

Faith Saturday Bible translation or #FSBT

Chapter 1

  1. “To whom would He teach knowledge?
    and to whom would He interpret the message?
    Those just weaned from milk?
    Those just taken from the breast?
    “For He says,
    ‘Order on order, order on order,
    Line on line, line on line,
    A little here, a little there.’”
    Indeed, He will speak to this people
    Through stammering lips and a foreign tongue,
    He who said to them, “Here is rest, give rest to the weary,”
    and, “Here is repose”.
  2. But they would not listen.
    So the word of the LORD to them will be,
    “Order on order, order on order,
    Line on line, line on line,
    A little here, a little there,”
    That they may go and stumble backward, be broken, snared, and taken captive.

Cross reference: Isaiah 28:9-13

Chapter 2 Prophecy

  1. “And in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed,
    because you have obeyed My voice.”
  2. Thus says God the LORD,
    Who created the heavens and stretched them out,
    Who spread out the earth and its offspring,
    Who gives breath to the people on it
    And spirit to those who walk in it,
    “I am the LORD, I have called You in righteousness,
    I will also hold You by the hand and watch over You,
    And I will appoint You as a covenant to the people,
    As a light to the nations,
    To open blind eyes,
    To bring out prisoners from the dungeon
    And those who dwell in darkness from the prison.
    “I am the LORD, that is My name;
    I will not give My glory to another,
    Nor My praise to graven images.”
  3. “Your houses will I give to a people that shall come;
    which not having heard of me yet shall believe me; to whom I have showed no signs,
    yet they shall do that I have commanded them.
    They have seen no prophets,
    yet they shall call their sins to remembrance,
    and acknowledge them.
    I take to witness the grace of the people to come,
    whose little ones rejoice in gladness: and though they have not seen me with bodily eyes,
    yet in spirit they believe the thing that I say.
    And now, brother, behold what glory; and see the people that come from the east:
    Unto whom I will give for leaders, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Oseas, Amos, and Micheas, Joel, Abdias, and Jonas,
    Nahum, and Abacuc, Sophonias, Aggeus, Zachary, and my messenger, which is called also an angel of the Lord.”
  4. The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify to the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “all nations shall be blessed in you.”
  5. You, being a wild olive, are now grafted in among God’s chosen people and became partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree.
  6. For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
  7. For the Jews and Jerusalem, seventy weeks have been decreed, to finish transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place.

Cross reference: Genesis 22:18, Isaiah 42:5-8, The Apocalypse of Ezra 1:35-40, Galatians 3:8, Romans 11:17, 1 Thessalonians 5:9, Daniel 9:25

Chapter 3 Jews and Jerusalem

  1. “God has not rejected His people, for I too am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured and all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it. It will come about after this. That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions. On the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you.”

Cross reference: Romans 11:1, Zechariah 12:2-3, Joel 2:28-29, Psalm 122:6

Chapter 4 Instruction

  1. “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you.”
  2. What good thing shall you do that you may obtain eternal life, you shall not commit murder or adultery or steal or bear false witness; honor thy mother and father; love thy neighbour as yourself and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved, you and your household.
  3. By this we know that we are the children of God, when we love God and observe His commandments.
    This is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome.
    Who ever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world; our faith in Jesus Christ.

Cross reference: Mark 16:15-16, Psalm 122:6, Matthew 19:16, Matthew 19:18-19, Acts 16:31, 1 John 5:2-4

Chapter 5 The Chosen

  1. “Many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.
    For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.
    Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations on account of My name. At that time many will fall away and will deliver up one another and hate one another.
    Many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many.
    Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.
    But the one who endures to the end, he shall be saved.”
  2. After these things a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, stand before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; and they cry out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
    And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying, “Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.”
    These who are clothed in the white robes, who are they, and where have they come from?
    You know.
    These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
  3. Keep on the alert at all times, praying in order that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.
  4. Behold, I send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD
  5. Behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a stephanos was given to him, a garland, awarded to a victor, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
  6. A red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him. “You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.”
  7. A black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. ‘A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine.'”and in various places there will be famines”
  8. Behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth. “and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.”
  9. Underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained. “They will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations on account of My name. At that time many will fall away and will deliver up one another and hate one another.”
  10. After these things a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, stand before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; and they cry out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
    And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying, “Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.”
    These who are clothed in the white robes, who are they, and where have they come from?
    You know.
    These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
  11. Keep on the alert at all times, praying in order that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.
  12. This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations, and then the end shall come.
  13. Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready. And it was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.
    These are true words of God.
  14. Heaven opened; behold, a white horse, and He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True; and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and upon His head are many diadems; and He has a name written upon Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood; and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may smite the nations; and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the winepress of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. On His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
  15. An angel standing in the sun; cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds which fly in midheaven,
    “Come, assemble for the great supper of God; in order that you may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of commanders and the flesh of mighty men and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them and the flesh of all men, both free men and slaves, and small and great.” “Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.”
  16. The beast and the kings of the earth and their armies, assembled to make war against Him who sat upon the horse, and against His army.
  17. The beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; “I am the LORD, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, Nor My praise to graven images,” these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat upon the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh. “Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.”

Daily Bible verse nothing new under the sun

Daily Bible verse nothing new under the sun

NASB77

Ecclesiastes 1:9

That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So, there is nothing new under the sun.

Mark 6:14-32

And King Herod heard of it, for His name had become well known; and people were saying, “John the Baptist has risen from the dead, and that is why these miraculous powers are at work in Him.”
But others were saying, “He is Elijah.” And others were saying, “He is a prophet, like one of the prophets of old.” But when Herod heard of it, he kept saying, “John, whom I beheaded, has risen!”
For Herod himself had sent and had John arrested and bound in prison on account of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip, because he had married her.
For John had been saying to Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.”
And Herodias had a grudge against him and wanted to put him to death and could not do so;
for Herod was afraid of John, knowing that he was a righteous and holy man, and kept him safe. And when he heard him, he was very perplexed; but he used to enjoy listening to him.
And a strategic day came when Herod on his birthday gave a banquet for his lords and military commanders and the leading men of Galilee;
and when the daughter of Herodias herself came in and danced, she pleased Herod and his dinner guests; and the king said to the girl, “Ask me for whatever you want and I will give it to you.”
And he swore to her, “Whatever you ask of me, I will give it to you; up to half of my kingdom.”
And she went out and said to her mother, “What shall I ask for?” And she said, “The head of John the Baptist.”
And immediately she came in haste before the king and asked, saying, “I want you to give me right away the head of John the Baptist on a platter.”
And although the king was very sorry, yet because of his oaths and because of his dinner guests, he was unwilling to refuse her.
And immediately the king sent an executioner and commanded him to bring back his head. And he went and had him beheaded in the prison,
and brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the girl; and the girl gave it to her mother.
And when his disciples heard about this, they came and took away his body and laid it in a tomb.
And the apostles gathered together with Jesus; and they reported to Him all that they had done and taught.
And He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a lonely place and rest a while.” (For there were many people coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.)
And they went away in the boat to a lonely place by themselves.

Malachi 3:1

“Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the LORD of hosts.

Malachi 4:5

Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD.

Revelation 6:1-2

Then I saw when the Lamb broke one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.

2 Kings 2:9

Now it came about when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask what I shall do for you before I am taken from you.” And Elisha said, “Please, let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.”

Revelation 11:3-13

“And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.” These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth. And if anyone desires to harm them, fire proceeds out of their mouth and devours their enemies; and if anyone would desire to harm them, in this manner he must be killed. These have the power to shut up the sky, in order that rain may not fall during the days of their prophesying; and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood, and to smite the earth with every plague, as often as they desire. And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them and kill them. And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which mystically is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. And those from the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations will look at their dead bodies for three and a half days, and will not permit their dead bodies to be laid in a tomb. And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and make merry; and they will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth. And after the three and a half days the breath of life from God came into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell upon those who were beholding them. And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies beheld them. And in that hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell; and seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.

AFR53

Prediker 1:9

Wat gewees het, dit sal daar weer wees; en wat gebeur het, dit sal weer gebeur, en daar is glad niks nuuts onder die son nie.

Markus 6:14-32

Toe koning Herodes dit hoor–want sy naam het bekend geword–het hy gesê: Johannes die Doper het uit die dode opgestaan, en daarom werk dié kragte in Hom.
Ander het gesê: Hy is Elía, en ander weer het gesê: Hy is ‘n profeet of soos een van die profete.
Maar toe Herodes dit hoor, sê hy: Johannes wat ek onthoof het, dit is hy; hy het uit die dode opgestaan.
Want Herodes self het gestuur en Johannes gevange geneem en hom in die gevangenis geboei, vanweë Heródias, die vrou van Filippus, sy broer, omdat hy met haar getrou het.
Want Johannes het aan Herodes gesê: Dit is u nie geoorloof om u broer se vrou te hê nie.
En Heródias het ‘n oog op hom gehad en wou hom om die lewe bring en sy kon nie.
Want Herodes was bang vir Johannes, omdat hy wis dat hy ‘n regverdige en heilige man was, en hy het hom beskerm; en nadat hy hom gehoor het, het hy baie dinge gedoen en graag na hom geluister.
En op die geskikte dag, toe Herodes op sy verjaarsdag vir sy groot manne en die owerstes oor duisend en die vernaamstes van Galiléa ‘n maaltyd gegee het;
en toe die dogter van dieselfde Heródias inkom en dans, en Herodes en die wat saam aan tafel was, behaag, sê die koning vir die meisie: Vra my net wat jy wil, en ek sal dit aan jou gee.
En hy het vir haar gesweer: Net wat jy my vra, sal ek jou gee, al was dit ook die helfte van my koninkryk.
Daarop gaan sy uit en sê vir haar moeder: Wat sal ek vra? Toe antwoord sy: Die hoof van Johannes die Doper.
En dadelik gaan sy haastig in na die koning en vra en sê: Ek wil hê dat u my op die daad die hoof van Johannes die Doper op ‘n skottel gee.
Toe word die koning baie bedroef, maar ter wille van die eed en die wat saam aan tafel was, wou hy haar nie afwys nie.
En die koning stuur dadelik een van sy lyfwag met die bevel om sy hoof te bring; en hy het gegaan en hom in die gevangenis onthoof
en sy hoof op ‘n skottel gebring en dit aan die meisie gegee, en die meisie het dit aan haar moeder gegee.
En toe sy dissipels dit hoor, het hulle gekom en sy lyk weggeneem en dit in ‘n graf neergelê.
En die apostels het by Jesus saamgekom en Hom alles vertel wat hulle gedoen sowel as wat hulle geleer het.
En Hy sê vir hulle: Kom julle self in die eensaamheid na ‘n verlate plek en rus ‘n bietjie. Want daar was baie wat kom en gaan, en hulle het selfs geen geskikte tyd gehad om te eet nie.
En hulle het met die skuit vertrek na ‘n verlate plek in die eensaamheid.

Maleagi 3:1

Kyk, Ek stuur my boodskapper wat die weg voor My uit sal baan; dan sal skielik na sy tempel kom die Here na wie julle soek, naamlik die Engel van die verbond, na wie julle ‘n begeerte het. Kyk, Hy kom, sê die HERE van die leërskare.

Maleagi 4:5

Kyk, Ek stuur julle die profeet Elía voordat die groot en vreeslike dag van die HERE aanbreek.

Openbaring 6:1-2

En ek het gesien toe die Lam een van die seëls oopmaak; en ek het een van die vier lewende wesens hoor sê, soos die geluid van ‘n donderslag: Kom kyk!
En ek het gesien, en kyk, daar was ‘n wit perd. En hy wat daarop sit, het ‘n boog; en aan hom is ‘n kroon gegee, en hy het uitgegaan as ‘n oorwinnaar en om te oorwin.

2 Konings 2:9

En nadat hulle deur was, sê Elía vir Elísa: Begeer wat ek vir jou moet doen, voordat ek van jou af weggeneem word. En Elísa antwoord: Laat dan tog ‘n dubbele deel van u gees op my kom.

Openbaring 11:3-13

En Ek sal aan my twee getuies gee dat hulle, met sakke bekleed, duisend twee honderd en sestig dae lank sal profeteer.
Hulle is die twee olyfbome en die twee kandelaars wat voor die God van die aarde staan.
En as iemand hulle wil beskadig, gaan daar vuur uit hulle mond en verslind hulle vyande; en as iemand hulle wil beskadig, moet hy op dieselfde manier gedood word.
Hulle het mag om die hemel te sluit, sodat daar in die dae van hulle profesie geen reën val nie; en hulle het mag oor die waters, om dit in bloed te verander en om die aarde te tref met allerhande plae so dikwels as hulle wil.
En wanneer hulle hul getuienis voleindig het, sal die dier wat uit die afgrond opkom, teen hulle oorlog voer en hulle oorwin en hulle doodmaak;
en hulle lyke sal lê op die straat van die groot stad wat geestelik genoem word Sodom en Egipte, waar ook onse Here gekruisig is.
En mense uit die volke en stamme en tale en nasies sal hulle lyke drie en ‘n halwe dag lank sien en nie toelaat dat hulle lyke in die graf gelê word nie.
Die bewoners van die aarde sal bly en verheug wees oor hulle en sal vir mekaar geskenke stuur, omdat dié twee profete die bewoners van die aarde gepynig het.
En ná die drie en ‘n halwe dag het ‘n gees van die lewe uit God in hulle ingegaan, en hulle het op hul voete gaan staan, en ‘n groot vrees het geval op die wat hulle aanskou het.
En hulle het ‘n groot stem uit die hemel vir hulle hoor sê: Kom op hierheen! En hulle het opgevaar na die hemel in die wolk, en hul vyande het hulle aanskou.
En in dié uur het daar ‘n groot aardbewing gekom, en ‘n tiende van die stad het geval, en sewe duisend mense het in die aardbewing omgekom, en die ander het bevrees geword en aan die God van die hemel heerlikheid toegebring.

Job 33:14-18

“Indeed God speaks once,
Or twice, yet no one notices it.

“In a dream, a vision of the night,
When sound sleep falls on men,
While they slumber in their beds,

Then He opens the ears of men,
And seals their instruction,

That He may turn man aside from his conduct,
And keep man from pride;

He keeps back his soul from the pit,
And his life from passing over into Sheol.

Job 33:14-18

Want God spreek op een, ja, op twee maniere; maar die mens let daar nie op nie.

In die droom, in ‘n naggesig, as diepe slaap op die mense val, tydens sluimeringe op die bed,

dan open Hy die oor van die mense, en Hy druk die seël op die waarskuwing aan hulle;

om die mens terug te hou van sy onderneming en trotsheid vir die man te verberg;

sodat Hy sy siel kan red uit die kuil; en sy lewe, dat dit nie omkom deur die spies nie.

which is true for the age.

Lord be with those
whom has less them me,
those whom struggle in the spirit
and in the physical,
bless them and guide them
give them hope and strengh
so that they may know that you are
with them.

Lord work in the hearts of those
whom has plenty,
so that they may help those whom has
little.
Lord let those whom have
seek you and your will,
so that their hearts can be turned,
to the poor and those whom struggle.

Lord I ask that you will expose
all that is hidden and discused in back door deals,
so that we will know,
who are for us and who are against us.

Lord make your will known to men,
and let them see
that your will is greater then any will of man.

Let your kindness rain upon this world, my father
in heaven, so that ever soul will turn away from evil and
see your heavenly love.

I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ
whom has spilt his blood for me.

Thank you Father

Amen

The time of sorrows: Where is the promise of His coming

Matthew 24 verse 4 to 14

And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. “And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. “But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. “Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations on account of My name. “And at that time many will fall away and will deliver up one another and hate one another. “And many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many. “And because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. “But the one who endures to the end, he shall be saved. “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations, and then the end shall come.

Revelation 6 verse 1-8

The Book Opened The First Seal—The Last Great Prophet

And I saw when the Lamb broke one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, “Come.” And I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him; and he went out conquering, and to conquer.

The Second Seal—War

And when He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come.” And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men should slay one another; and a great sword was given to him.

The Third Seal—Famine

And when He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, “Come.” And I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard as it were a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”

The Fourth Seal—Death

And when He broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come.” And I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. And authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.

2 Thessalonians 2

Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together to Him, that you may not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he may be revealed. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. And then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. And for this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they might believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.

But we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth. And it was for this He called you through our gospel, that you may gain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught, whether by word of mouth or by letter from us.

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace, comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word.

2 Peter 3 verse 3-4

Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.”

Commentary

The rapture and the Last week of Daniels 70 weeks will be proceeded by the time of sorrow.
The bible does not say how long this time of sorrow would be.
With in the next few decades we will see wars, famines, earthquakes and persecution, many will mock you and laugh at you saying, see the end has come yet he has never come, but I tell you now he will come, because the finial test for those whom will be spared from Gods’ wrath is the time of sorrows, many will think that it is the great tribulation, but it will not be, but only birth pains, before the end.

The Book of Enoch

The Book of Enoch

The Book of Enoch

Book of Enoch Chapter 64

Book of Enoch chapter 1 to 53

The Book of Enoch Chapter 65 to 91

Chapter 65

1 After this he showed me the angels of punishment, who were prepared to come, and to open all the mighty waters under the earth:

2 That they may be for judgment, and for the destruction of all those who remain and dwell upon the earth.

3 And the Lord of spirits commanded the angels who went forth, not to take up the men and preserve them.

4 For those angels presiding over all the mighty waters. Then I went out from the presence of Enoch.

Chapter 66

1 In those days the word of God came to me, and said, Noah, behold, your lot has ascended up to me, a lot void of crime, a lot beloved and upright.

2 Now then shall the angels labour at the trees; but when they proceed to this, I will put my hand upon it, and preserve it.

3 The seed of life shall arise from it, and a change shall take place, that the dry land shall not be left empty. I will establish your seed before me for ever and ever, and the seed of those who dwell with you on the surface of the earth. It shall be blessed and multiplied in the presence of the earth, in the name of the Lord.

4 And they shall confine those angels who disclosed impiety. In that burning valley it is, that they shall be confined, which at first my great-grandfather Enoch showed me in the west, where there were mountains of gold and silver, of iron, of fluid metal, and of tin.

5 I beheld that valley in which there was great perturbation, and where the waters were troubled.

6 And when all this was effected, from the fluid mass of fire, and the perturbation which troubled them in that place, there arose a strong smell of sulphur, which became mixed with the waters; and the valley of the angels, who had been guilty of seduction, burned underneath its soil.

7 Through that valley also rivers of fire were flowing, to which those angels shall be condemned, who seduced the inhabitants of the earth.

8 And in those days shall these waters be to kings, to princes, to the exalted, and to the inhabitants of the earth, for the healing of the soul and body, and for the judgment of the spirit.

9 Their spirits shall be full of lust, that they may be judged in their bodies; because they have denied the Lord of spirits, and although they perceive their condemnation day by day, they believe not in his name.

10 And as the inflammation of their bodies shall be great, so shall their spirits undergo a change for ever.

11 For no word which is uttered before the Lord of spirits shall be in vain.

12 Judgment has come upon them, because they trusted in their carnal revelry, and denied the Lord of spirits.

13 In those days shall the waters of that valley be changed; for when the angels shall be judged, then shall the heat of those springs of water experience an alteration.

14 And when the angels shall ascend, the water of the springs shall again undergo a change, and be frozen. Then I heard holy Michael answering and saying, This judgment, with which the angels shall be judged, shall bear testimony against the kings, the princes, and those who possess the earth.

15 For these waters of judgment shall be for their healing, and for the lust of their bodies. But they shall not perceive and believe that the waters will be changed, and become a fire, which shall blaze for ever.

Chapter 67

1 After this he gave me the characteristical marks of all the secret things in the book of my great-grandfather Enoch, and in the parables which had been given to him; inserting them for me among the words of the book of parables.

2 At that that time holy Michael answered and said to Raphael, The power of the spirit hurries me away, and impels me on. The severity of the judgment, of the secret judgment of the angels, who is capable of beholding–the endurance of that severe judgment which has taken place and been made permanent–without being melted at the site of it? Again holy Michael answered and said to holy Raphael, Who is there whose heart is not softened by it, and whose reins are not troubled at this thing?

3 Judgment has gone forth against them by those who have thus dragged them away; and that was, when they stood in the presence of the Lord of spirits.

4 In like manner also holy Rakael said to Raphael, They shall not be before the eye of the Lord; since the Lord of spirits has been offended with them; for they act as if they were Lord. Therefore will he bring upon them a secret judgment for ever and ever.

5 For neither shall angel nor man receive a portion of it; but they alone shall receive their own judgment for ever end ever.

Chapter 68 The watchers whom are angels

1 After this judgment they shall be astonished and irritated; for it shall be exhibited to the inhabitants of the earth.

2 Behold the names of those angels. These are their names. The first of them is Samyaza; the second, Arstikapha; the third, Armen; the fourth, Kakabael; the fifth, Turel; the sixth, Rumyel; the seventh, Danyal; the eighth, Kael; the ninth, Barakel; the tenth, Azazel; the eleventh, Armers; the twelfth, Bataryal; the thirteenth, Basasael; the fourteenth, Ananel; the fifteenth, Turyal; the sixteenth, Simapiseel; the seventeenth, Yetarel; the eighteenth, Tumael; the nineteenth, Tarel; the twentieth, Rumel; the twenty-first, Azazyel.

3 These are the chiefs of their angels, and the names of the leaders of their hundreds, and the leaders of their fifties, and the leaders of their tens.

4 The name of the first is Yekun: he it was who seduced all the sons of the holy angels; and causing them to descend on earth, led astray the offspring of men.

5 The name of the second is Kesabel, who pointed out evil counsel to the sons of the holy angels, and induced them to corrupt their bodies by generating mankind.

6 The name of the third is Gadrel: he discovered every stroke of death to the children of men.

7 He seduced Eve; and discovered to the children of men the instruments of death, the coat of mail, the shield, and the sword for slaughter; every instrument of death to the children of men.

8 From his hand were these things derived to them who dwell upon earth, from that period for ever.

9 The name of the fourth is Penemue: he discovered to the children of men bitterness and sweetness;

10 And pointed out to them every secret of their wisdom.

11 He taught men to understand writing, and the use of ink and paper.

12 Therefore numerous have been those who have gone astray from every period of the world, even to this day.

13 For men were not born for this, thus with pen and with ink to confirm their faith;

14 Since they were not created, except that, like the angels, they might remain righteous and pure.

15 Nor would death, which destroys everything, have effected them;

16 But by this their knowledge they perish, and by this also its power consumes them.

17 The name of the fifth is Kasyade: he discovered to the children of men every wicked stroke of spirits and of demons:

18 The stroke of the embryo in the womb, to diminish it; the stroke of the spirit by the bite of the serpent, and the stroke which is given in the mid-day by the offspring of the serpent, the name of which is Tabaet.

19 This is the number of the Kasbel; the principal part of the oath which the Most High, dwelling in glory, revealed to the holy ones.

20 Its name is Beka. He spoke to holy Michael to discover to them the sacred name, that they might understand that secret name, and thus remember the oath; and that those who pointed out every secret thing to the children of men might tremble at that name and oath.

21 This is the power of that oath; for powerful it is, and strong.

22 And he established this oath of Akae by the instrumentality of the holy Michael.

23 These are the secrets of this oath, and by it were they confirmed.

24 Heaven was suspended by it before the world was made, for ever.

25 By it has the earth been founded upon the flood; while from the concealed parts of the hills the agitated waters proceed forth from the creation to the end of the world.

26 By this oath the sea has been formed, and the foundation of it.

27 During the period of its fury he established the sand against it, which continues unchanged for ever; and by this oath the abyss has been made strong; nor is it removable from its station for ever and ever.

28 By this oath the sun and moon complete their progress, never swerving from the command given to them for ever and ever.

29 By this oath the stars complete their progress;

30 And when their names are called, they return an answer, for ever and ever.

31 Thus in the heavens take place the blowings of the winds: all of them have spirits, and effect a complete combination of breathings.

32 There the treasures of thunder are kept, and the splendour of the lightning.

33 There are kept the treasures of hail and of frost, the treasures of snow, the treasures of rain and of dew.

34 All these confess and laud before the Lord of spirits.

35 They glorify with all their power of praise; and he sustains them in all that act of thanksgiving; while they laud, glorify, and exalt the name of the Lord of spirits for ever and ever.

36 And with them he establishes this oath, by which they and their paths are preserved; nor does their progress perish.

37 Great was their joy.

38 They blessed, glorified, and exalted, because the name of the Son of man was revealed to them.

39 He sat upon the throne of his glory; and the principal part of the judgment was assigned to him, the Son of man. Sinners shall disappear and perish from the face of the earth, while those who seduced them shall be bound with chains for ever.

40 According to their ranks of corruption shall they be imprisoned, and all their works shall disappear from the face of the earth; nor thenceforward shall there be any to corrupt; for the Son of man has been seen, sitting on the throne of his glory.

41 Everything wicked shall disappear, and depart from before his face; and the word of the Son of man shall become powerful in the presence of the Lord of spirits.

42 This is the third parable of Enoch.

Chapter 69

1 After this the name of the Son of man, living with the Lord of spirits, was exalted by the inhabitants of the earth.

2 It was exalted in the chariots of the Spirit; and the name went forth in the midst of them.

3 From that time I was not drawn into the midst of them; but he seated me between two spirits, between the north and the west, where the angels received their ropes, to measure out a place for the elect and the righteous.

4 There I beheld the fathers of the first men, and the saints, who dwell in that place for ever.

Chapter 70

1 Afterwards my spirit was concealed, ascending into the heavens. I beheld the sons of the holy angels treading on flaming fire, whose garments and robes were white, and whose countenances were transparent as crystal.

2 I saw two rivers of fire glittering like the hyacinth.

3 Then I fell on my face before the Lord of spirits.

4 And Michael, one of the archangels, took me by my right hand, raised me up, and brought me out to where was every secret of mercy and secret of righteousness.

5 He showed me all the hidden things of the extremities of heaven, all the receptacles of the stars, and the splendours of all, from whence they went forth before the face of the holy.

6 And he concealed the spirit of Enoch in the heaven of heavens.

7 There I beheld, in the midst of that light, a building raised with stones of ice;

8 And in the midst of these stone tongues of living fire. My spirit saw around the circle of this flaming habitation, on one of its extremities, that there were rivers full of living fire, which encompassed it.

9 Then the Seraphim, the Cherubim, and Ophanin surrounded it: these are those who never sleep, but watch the throne of his glory.

10 And I beheld angels innumerable, thousands of thousands, and myriads and myriads, who surrounded that habitation.

11 Michael, Raphael, Gabriel, Phanuel and the holy angels who were in the heavens above, went in and out of it. Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel went out of that habitation, and holy angels innumerable.

12 With them was the Ancient of days, whose head was white as wool, and pure, and his robe was indescribable.

13 Then I fell upon my face, while all my flesh was dissolved, and my spirit became changed.

14 I cried out with a loud voice, with a powerful spirit, blessing, glorifying, and exalting.

15 And those blessings, which proceeded from my mouth, became acceptable in the presence of the Ancient of days.

16 The Ancient of days came with Michael and Gabriel, Raphael and Phanuel, with thousands of thousands, and myriads and myriads, which could not be numbered.

17 Then that angel came to me, and with his voice saluted me, saying, You are the Son of man, who art born for righteousness, and righteousness has rested upon you.

18 The righteousness of the Ancient of days shall not forsake you.

19 He said, On you shall he confer peace in the name of the existing world; for from thence has peace gone forth since the world was created.

20 And thus shall it happen to you for ever and ever.

21 All who shall exist, and who shall walk in your path of righteousness, shall not forsake you for ever.

22 With you shall be their habitations, with you their lot; nor from you shall they be separated for ever and ever.

23 And thus shall length of days be with the Son of man.

24 Peace shall be to the righteous; and the path of integrity shall the righteous pursue, in the name of the Lord of spirits, for ever and ever.

Chapter 71 The Olive tree Calendar Part 1

1 The book of the revolutions of the luminaries of heaven, according to their respective classes, their respective powers, their respective periods, their respective names, the places where they commence their progress, and their respective months, which Uriel, the holy angel who was with me, explained to me; he who conducted them. The whole account of them, according to every year of the world for ever, until a new work shall be effected, which will be eternal.

2 This is the first law of the luminaries. The sun and the light arrive at the gates of heaven, which are on the east, and on the west of it at the western gates of heaven.

3 I beheld the gates whence the sun goes forth; and the gates where the sun sets;

4 In which gates also the moon rises and sets; and I beheld the conductors of the stars, among those who precede them; six gates were at the rising, and six at the setting of the sun.

5 All these respectively, one after another, are on a level; and numerous windows are on the right and on the left sides of those gates.

6 First proceeds forth that great luminary, which is called the sun; the orb of which is as the orb of heaven, the whole of it being replete with splendid and flaming fire.

7 Its chariot, where it ascends, the wind blows.

8 The sun sets in heaven, and, returning by the north, to proceed towards the east, is conducted so as to enter by that gate, and illuminate the face of heaven.

9 In the same manner it goes forth in the first month by the great gate.

10 It goes forth through the fourth of those six gates, which are at the rising of the sun.

11 And in the fourth gate, through which the sun with the moon proceeds, in the first part of it, there are twelve open windows; from which issues out a flame, when they are opened in their proper periods.

12 When the sun rises in heaven, it goes forth through this fourth gate thirty days, and by the fourth gate in the west of heaven on a level with it descends.

13 During that period the day is lengthened from the day, and the night curtailed from the night for thirty days. And then the day is longer by two parts than the night.

14 The day is precisely ten parts, and the night is eight.

15 The sun goes forth through this fourth gate, and sets in it, and turns to the fifth gate during thirty days; after which it proceeds from, and sets in, the fifth gate.

16 Then the day becomes lengthened by a second portion, so that it is eleven parts: while the night becomes shortened, and is only seven parts.

17 The sun now returns to the east, entering into the sixth gate, and rising and setting in the sixth gate thirty-one days, on account of its signs.

18 At that period the day is longer than the night, being twice as long as the night; and become twelve parts;

19 But the night is shortened, and becomes six parts. Then the sun rises up, that the day may be shortened, and the night lengthened.

20 And the sun returns toward the east entering into the sixth gate, where it rises and sets for thirty days.

21 When that period is completed, the day becomes shortened precisely one part, so that it is eleven parts, while the night is seven parts.

22 Then the sun goes from the west, from that sixth gate, and proceeds eastwards, rising in the fifth gate for thirty days, and setting again westwards in the fifth gate of the west.

23 At that period the day becomes shortened two parts; and is ten parts, while the night is eight parts.

24 Then the sun goes from the fifth gate, as it sets in the fifth gate of the west; and rises in the fourth gate for thirty-one days, on account of its signs, setting in the west.

25 At that period the day is made equal with the night; and, being equal with it, the night becomes nine parts, and the day nine parts.

26 Then the sun goes from that gate, as it sets in the west; and returning to the east proceeds by the third gate for thirty days, setting in the west at the third gate.

27 At that period the night is lengthened from the day during thirty mornings, and the day is curtailed from the day during thirty days; the night being ten parts precisely, and the day eight parts.

28 The sun now goes from the third gate, as it sets in the third gate in the west; but returning to the east, it proceeds by the second gate of the east for thirty days.

29 In like manner also it sets in the second gate in the west of heaven.

30 At that period the night is eleven parts, and the day seven parts.

31 Then the sun goes at that time from the second gate, as it sets in the second gate in the west; but returns to the east, proceeding by the first gate, for thirty-one days.

32 And sets in the west in the first gate.

33 At that period that night is lengthened as much again as the day.

34 It is twelve parts precisely, while the day is six parts.

35 The sun has thus completed its beginnings, and a second time goes round from these beginnings.

36 Into that first gate it enters for thirty days, and sets in the west, in the opposite part of heaven.

37 At that period the night is contracted in its length a fourth part, that is, one portion, and becomes eleven parts.

38 The day is seven parts.

39 Then the sun returns, and enters into the second gate of the east.

40 It returns by these beginnings thirty days, rising and setting.

41 At that period the night is contracted in its length. It becomes ten parts, and the day eight parts. Then the sun goes from that second gate, and sets in the west; but returns to the east, and rises in the east, in the third gate, thirty-one days, setting in the west of heaven.

42 At that period the night becomes shortened. It is nine parts. And the night is equal with the day. The year is precisely three hundred and sixty-four days.

43 The lengthening of the day and night, and the contraction of the day and night, are made to differ from each other by the progress of the sun.

44 By means of this progress the day is daily lengthened, and the night greatly shortened.

45 This is the law and progress of the sun, and its turning when it turns back, turning during sixty days, 30 days at each pole and going forth. This is the great everlasting luminary, that which he names the sun for ever and ever.

46 This also is that which goes forth a great luminary, and which is named after its peculiar kind, as God commanded.

47 And thus it goes in and out, neither slackening nor resting; but running on in its chariot by day and by night. Its light is seven times by two times brighter than that of the moon; but the dimensions of both are equal, so that one may cover the other.

Chapter 72 The Olive tree Calendar Part 2

1 After this law I beheld another law of an inferior luminary, the name of which is the moon, and the orb of which is as the orb of heaven.

2 Its chariot, which it secretly ascends, the wind blows; and light is given to it by measure.

3 Every month at its exit and entrance it becomes changed; and its periods are as the periods of the sun. And when in like manner its light is to exist, its light is a seventh portion from the light of the sun when full.

4 Thus it rises, and at its commencement towards the east goes forth for thirty days.

5 At that time it appears, and becomes to you the beginning of the month. Thirty days it is with the sun in the gate from which the sun goes forth.

6 Half of it is in extent seven portions, one half; and the whole of its orb is void of light, except a seventh portion out of the fourteen portions of its light. And in a day it receives a seventh portion, or half that portion, of its light. Its light is by sevens, by one portion, and by the half of a portion. Its sets with the sun.

7 And when the sun rises, the moon rises with it; receiving half a portion of light.

8 On that night, when it commences its period, previously to the day of the month, the moon sets with the sun.

9 And on that night it is dark in its fourteen portions, that is, in each half; but it rises on that day with one seventh portion precisely, and in its progress declines from the rising of the sun.

10 During the remainder of its period its light increases to fourteen portions.

Chapter 73 The Olive tree Calendar Part 3

1 Then I saw another progress and regulation which He effected in the law of the moon. The progress of the moons, and everything relating to them, Uriel showed me, the holy angel who conducted them all.

2 Their stations I wrote down as he showed them to me.

3 I wrote down their months, as they occur, and the appearance of their light, until it is completed in fifteen days.

4 In each of its two seven portions it completes all its light at rising and at setting.

5 On stated months it changes its settings; and on stated months it makes its progress through each gate. In two gates the moon sets with the sun, viz. in those two gates which are in the midst, in the third and fourth gate. From the third gate it goes forth for seven days, and makes its circuit.

6 Again it returns to the gate whence the sun goes forth, and in that completes the whole of its light. Then it declines from the sun, and enters in eight days into the sixth gate, and returns in seven days to the third gate, from which the sun goes forth.

7 When the sun proceeds to the fourth gate, the moon goes forth for seven days, until it passes from the fifth gate.

8 Again it returns in seven days to the fourth gate, and completing all its light, declines, and passes on by the first gate in eight days;

9 And returns in seven days to the fourth gate, from which the sun goes forth.

10 Thus I beheld their stations, as according to the fixed order of the months the sun rises and sets.

11 At those times there is an excess of thirty days belonging to the sun in five years; all the days belonging to each year of the five years, when completed, amount to three hundred and sixty-four days; and to the sun and stars belong six days; six days in each of the five years; thus thirty days belonging to them;

12 So that the moon has thirty days less than the sun and stars.

13 The moon brings on all the years exactly, that their stations may come neither too forwards nor too backwards a single day; but that the years may be changed with correct precision in three hundred and sixty-four days. In three years the days are one thousand and ninety-two; in five years they are one thousand eight hundred and twenty; and in eight years two thousand nine hundred and twelve days.

14 To the moon alone belong in three years one thousand and sixty-two days; in five years it has fifty days less than the sun, for an addition being made to the one thousand and sixty-two days, in five years there are one thousand seven hundred and seventy days; and the days of the moon in eight years are two thousand eight hundred and thirty-two days.

15 For its days in eight years are less than those of the sun by eighty days, which eighty days are its diminution in eight years.

16 The year then becomes truly complete according to the station of the moon, and the station of the sun; which rise in the different gates; which rise and set in them for thirty days.

Chapter 74 The Olive tree Calendar Part 4

1 These are the leaders of the chiefs of the thousands, those which preside over all creation, and over all the stars; with the four days which are added and never separated from the place allotted them, according to the complete calculation of the year.

2 And these serve four days, which are not calculated in the calculation of the year.

3 Respecting them, men greatly err, for these luminaries truly serve, in the dwelling place of the world, one day in the first gate, one in the third gate, one in the fourth gate, and one in the sixth gate.

4 And the harmony of the world becomes complete every three hundred and sixty-fourth state of it. For the signs,

5 The seasons,

6 The years,

7 And the days, Uriel showed me; the angel whom the Lord of glory appointed over all the luminaries.

8 Of heaven in heaven, and in the world; that they might rule in the face of the sky, and appearing over the earth, become

9 Conductors of the days and nights: the sun, the moon, the stars, and all the ministers of heaven, which make their circuit with all the chariots of heaven.

10 Thus Uriel showed me twelve gates open for the circuit of the chariots of the sun in heaven, from which the rays of the sun shoot forth.

11 From these proceed heat over the earth, when they are opened in their stated seasons. They are for the winds, and the spirit of the dew, when in their seasons they are opened; opened in heaven at its extremities.

12 Twelve gates I beheld in heaven, at the extremities of the earth, through which the sun, moon, and stars, and all the works of heaven, proceed at their rising and setting.

13 Many windows also are open on the right and on the left.

14 One window at a certain season grows extremely hot. So also are there gates from which the stars go forth as they are commanded, and in which they set according to their number.

15 I saw likewise the chariots of heaven, running in the world above to those gates in which the stars turn, which never set. One of these is greater than all, which goes round the whole world.

Chapter 75 The Hadley cells surface and upper atmosphere

1 And at the extremities of the earth I beheld twelve gates open for all the winds, from which they proceed and blow over the earth.

2 Three of them are open in the front of heaven, three in the west, three on the right side of heaven, and three on the left. The first three are those which are towards the east, three are towards the north, three behind those which are upon the left, towards the south, and three on the west.

3 From four of them proceed winds of blessing, and of health; and from eight proceed winds of punishment; when they are sent to destroy the earth, and the heaven above it, all its inhabitants, and all which are in the waters, or on dry land.

4 The first of these winds proceeds from the gate termed the eastern, through the first gate on the east, which inclines southwards. From this goes forth destruction, drought, heat, and perdition.

5 When that their visible situation is completed. Such is the appearance and likeness of every luminary, which Uriel, the great angel who conducts them, showed to me.

Chapter 79

1 In those days Uriel answered and said to me, Behold, I have showed you all things, O Enoch;

2 And all things have I revealed to you. You see the sun, the moon, and those which conduct the stars of heaven, which cause all their operations, seasons, and arrivals to return.

3 In the days of sinners the years shall be shortened.

4 Their seed shall be backward in their prolific soil; and everything done on earth shall be subverted, and disappear in its season. The rain shall be restrained, and heaven shall stand still.

5 In those days the fruits of the earth shall be late, and not flourish in their season; and in their season the fruits of the trees shall be withholden.

6 The moon shall change its laws, and not be seen at its proper period. But in those days shall heaven be seen; and barrenness shall take place in the borders of the great chariots in the west. Heaven shall shine more than when illuminated by the orders of light; while many chiefs among the stars of authority shall err, perverting their ways and works.

7 Those shall not appear in their season, who commanded them, and all the classes of the stars shall be shut up against sinners.

8 The thoughts of those who dwell on the earth shall transgress within them; and they shall be perverted in all their ways.

9 They shall transgress, and think themselves gods; while evil shall be multiplied among them.

10 And punishment shall come upon them, so that all of them shall be destroyed.

Chapter 80

1 He said, O Enoch, look on the book which heaven has gradually dropped down; and, reading that which is written in it, understand every part of it.

2 Then I looked on all which was written, and understood all, reading the book and everything written in it, all the works of man;

3 And of all the children of flesh upon earth, during the generations of the world.

4 Immediately after I blessed the Lord, the King of glory, who has thus for ever formed the whole workmanship of the world.

5 And I glorified the Lord, on account of his long-suffering and blessing towards the children of the world.

6 At that time I said, Blessed is the man, who shall die righteous and good, against whom no catalogue of crime has been written, and with whom iniquity is not found.

7 Then those three holy ones caused me to approach, and placed me on the earth, before the door of my house.

8 And they said unto me, Explain everything to Mathusala your son; and inform all your children, that no flesh shall be justified before the Lord; for he is their Creator.

9 During one year we shall leave you with your children, until you shalt again recover your strength, that you may instruct your family, write these things, and explain them to all your children. But in another year they shall take you from the midst of them, and your heart shall be strengthened; for the elect shall point out righteousness to the elect; the righteous with the righteous shall rejoice, congratulating each other; but the sinners with sinners shall die,

10 And the perverted with the perverted shall be drowned.

11 Those likewise who act righteously shall die on account of the works of man, and shall be gathered together on account of the works of the wicked.

12 In those days they finished conversing with me.

13 And I returned to my fellow men, blessing the Lord of worlds.

Chapter 81 The Spirits of Seasons

1 Now, my son Mathusala, all these things I speak unto you, and write for you. To you I have revealed all, and have given you books of everything.

2 Preserve, my son Mathusala, the books written by your father; that you may reveal them to future generations.

3 Wisdom have I given you, to your children, and your posterity, that they may reveal to their children, for generations for ever, this wisdom in their thoughts; and that those who comprehend it may not slumber, but hear with their ears; that they may learn this wisdom, and be deemed worthy of eating this wholesome food.

4 Blessed are all the righteous; blessed are all who walk in righteousness; in whom no crime is found, as in sinners, when all their days are numbered.

5 With respect to the progress of the sun in heaven, it enters and goes out of each gate for thirty days, with the leaders of the thousand classes of the stars; with four which are added, and appertain to the four quarters of the year, which conduct them, and accompany them at four periods.

6 Respecting these, men greatly err, and do not calculate them in the calculation of every age; for they greatly err respecting them; nor do men know accurately that they are in the calculation of the year. But indeed these are marked down for ever; one in the first gate, one in the third, one in the fourth, and one in the sixth:

7 So that the year is completed in three hundred and sixty-four days.

8 Truly has been stated, and accurately has been calculated that which is marked down; for the luminaries, the months, the fixed periods, the years, and the days, Uriel has explained to me, and communicated to me; whom the Lord of all creation, on my account, commanded (according to the might of heaven, and the power which it possesses both by night and by day) to explain the laws of light to man, of the sun, moon, and stars, and of all the powers of heaven, which are turned with their respective orbs.

9 This is the ordinance of the stars, which set in their places, in their seasons, in their periods, in their days, and in their months.

10 These are the names of the those who conduct them, who watch and enter in their seasons, according to their ordinance in their periods, in their months, in the times of their influence, and in their stations.

11 Four conductors of them first enter, who separate the four quarters of the year. After these, twelve conductors of their classes, who separate the months and the year into three hundred and sixty-four days, with the leaders of a thousand, who distinguish between the days, as well as between the four additional ones; which, as conductors, divide the four quarters of the year.

12 These leaders of a thousand are in the midst of the conductors, and the conductors are added each behind his station, and their conductors make the separation. These are the names of the conductors, who separate the four quarters of the year, who are appointed over them: Melkel, Helammelak,

13 Meliyal, and Narel.

14 And the names of those who conduct them are Adnarel, Jyasusal, and Jyelumeal.

15 These are the three who follow after the conductors of the classes of stars; each following after the three conductors of the classes, which themselves follow after those conductors of the stations, who divide the four quarters of the year.

16 In the first part of the year rises and rules Melkyas, who is named Tamani and Zahay; the southern sun.

17 All the days of his influence, during which he rules, are ninety-one days.

18 And these are the signs of the days which are seen upon the earth. In the days of his influence there is perspiration, heat, and trouble. All the trees become fruitful; the leaf of every tree comes forth; the corn is reaped; the rose and every species of flowers blossoms in the field; and the trees of winter are dried up.

19 These are the names of the conductors who are under them: Barkel, Zelsabel; and another additional conductor of a thousand is named Heloyalef, the days of those influence have been completed. The other conductor next after them is Helemmelek, whose name they call the splendid Zahay.

20 All the days of his light are ninety-one days.

21 These are the signs of the days upon earth, heat and drought; while the trees bring forth their fruits, warmed and concocted, and give their fruits to dry.

22 The flocks follow and yean. All the fruits of the earth are collected, with everything in the fields, and the vines are trodden. This takes place during the time of his influence.

23 These are their names and orders, and the names of the conductors who are under them, of those who are chiefs of a thousand: Gedaeyal, Keel, Heel.

24 And the name of the additional leader of a thousand is Asphael.

25 The days of his influence have been completed.

Chapter 82

1 And now I have shown you, my son Mathusala, every sight which I saw prior to your birth. I will relate another vision, which I saw before I was married; they resemble each other.

2 The first was when I was learning a book; and the other before I was married to your mother. I saw a potent vision;

3 And on account of these things besought the Lord.

4 I was lying down in the house of my grandfather Malalel, when I saw in a vision heaven purifying, and snatched away.

5 And falling to the earth, I saw likewise the earth absorbed by a great abyss; and mountains suspended over mountains.

6 Hills were sinking upon hills, lofty trees were gliding off from their trunks, and were in the act of being projected, and of sinking into the abyss.

7 Being alarmed at these things, my voice faltered. I cried out and said, The earth is destroyed. Then my grandfather Malalel raised me up, and said to me: Why do you thus cry out, my son? And wherefore thus do you lament?

8 I related to him the whole vision which I had seen. He said to me, Confirmed is that which you have seen, my son;

9 And potent the vision of your dream respecting every secret sin of the earth. Its substance shall sink into the abyss, and a great destruction take place.

10 Now, my son, rise up; and beseech the Lord of glory (for you are faithful), that a remnant may be left upon earth, and that he would not wholly destroy it. My son, all this calamity upon earth comes down from heaven; upon earth shall there be a great destruction.

11 Then I arose, prayed, and entreated; and wrote down my prayer for the generations of the world, explaining everything to my son Mathusala.

12 When I went down below, and looking up to heaven, beheld the sun proceeding from the east, the moon descending to the west, a few scattered stars, and everything which God has known from the beginning, I blessed the Lord of judgment, and magnified him: because he hath sent forth the sun from the chambers of the east; that, ascending and rising in the face of heaven, it might spring up, and pursue the path which has been pointed out to it.

Chapter 83

1 I lifted up my hands in righteousness, and blessed the holy, and the Great One. I spoke with the breath of my mouth, and with a tongue of flesh, which God has formed for all the sons of mortal men, that with it they may speak; giving them breath, a mouth, and a tongue to converse with.

2 Blessed are you, O Lord, the King, great and powerful in your greatness, Lord of all the creatures of heaven, King of kings, God of the whole world, whose reign, whose kingdom, and whose majesty endure for ever and ever.

3 From generation to generation shall your dominion exist. All the heavens are your throne for ever, and all the earth your footstool for ever and for ever.

4 For you have made them, and over all you reign. No act whatsoever exceeds your power. With your wisdom is unchangeable; nor from your throne and from your presence is it ever averted. You know all things, see and hear them; nor is anything concealed from you; for you perceive all things.

5 The angels of your heavens have transgressed; and on mortal flesh shall your wrath remain, until the day of the great judgment.

6 Now then, O God, Lord and mighty King, I entreat you, and beseech you to grant my prayer, that a posterity may be left to me on earth, and that the whole human race may not perish;

7 That the earth may not be left destitute, and destruction take place for ever.

8 O my Lord, let the race perish from off the earth which has offended you, but a righteous and upright race establish for a posterity for ever. Hide not your face, O Lord, from the prayer of your servant.

Chapter 84 Adam to Messianic Kingdom

1 After this I saw another dream, and explained it all to you, my son. Enoch arose and said to his son Mathusala, To you, my son, will I speak. Hear my word; and incline your ear to the visionary dream of your father. Before I married your mother Edna, I saw a vision on my bed;

2 And behold, a cow sprung forth from the earth;

3 And this cow was white.

4 Afterwards a female heifer sprung forth; and with it another heifer: one of them was black, and one was red.

5 The black heifer then struck the red one, and pursued it over the earth.

6 From that period I could see nothing more of the red heifer; but the black one increased in bulk, and a female heifer came with him.

7 After this I saw that many cows proceeded forth, resembling him, and following after him.

8 The first female young one also went out in the presence of the first cow; and sought the red heifer, but found him not.

9 And she lamented with a great lamentation, while she was seeking him.

10 Then I looked until that first cow came to her, from which time she became silent, and ceased to lament.

11 Afterwards she calved another white cow.

12 And again calved many cows and black heifers.

13 In my sleep also I perceived a white bull, which in like manner grew, and became a large white bull.

14 After him many white cows came forth, resembling him.

15 And they began to calve many other white cows, which resembled them and followed each other.

Chapter 85 Adam to Messianic Kingdom

1 Again I looked attentively, while sleeping, and surveyed heaven above.

2 And behold a single star fell from heaven.

3 Which being raised up, ate and fed among those cows.

4 After that I perceived other large and black cows; and behold all of them changed their stalls and pastures, while their young began to lament one with another. Again I looked in my vision, and surveyed heaven; when behold I saw many stars which descended, and projected themselves from heaven to where the first star was,

5 Into the midst of those young ones; while the cows were with them, feeding in the midst of them.

6 I looked at and observed them; when behold, they all acted after the manner of horses, and began to approach the young cows, all of whom became pregnant, and brought forth elephants, camels, and asses.

7 At these all the cows were alarmed and terrified; when they began biting with their teeth, swallowing, and striking with their horns.

8 They began also to devour the cows; and behold all the children of the earth trembled, shook with terror at them, and suddenly fled away.

Chapter 86 Adam to Messianic Kingdom

1 Again I perceived them, when they began to strike and to swallow each other; and the earth cried out. Then I raised my eyes a second time towards heaven, and saw in a vision, that, behold, there came forth from heaven as it were the likeness of white men. One came forth from thence, and three with him.

2 Those three, who came forth last, seized me by my hand; and raising me up from the generations of the earth, elevated me to a high station.

3 Then they showed me a lofty tower on the earth, while every hill became diminished. And they said, Remain here, until you perceive what shall come upon those elephants, camels, and asses, upon the stars, and upon all the cows.

Chapter 87 Adam to Messianic Kingdom

1 Then I looked at that one of the four white men, who came forth first.

2 He seized the first star which fell down from heaven.

3 And, binding it hand and foot, he cast it into a valley; a valley narrow, deep, stupendous, and gloomy.

4 Then one of them drew his sword, and gave it to the elephants, camels, and asses, who began to strike each other. And the whole earth shook on account of them.

5 And when I looked in the vision, behold, one of those four angels, who came forth, hurled from heaven, collected together, and took all the great stars, whose form partly resembles that of horses; and binding them all hand and foot, cast them into the cavities of the earth.

Chapter 88 Adam to Messianic Kingdom

1 Then one of those four went to the white cows, and taught them a mystery. While the cow was trembling, it was born, and became a man, (Noah) and fabricated for himself a large ship. In this he dwelt, and three cows (Shem, Ham, and Japheth) dwelt with him in that ship, which covered them.

2 Again I lifted up my eyes towards heaven, and saw a lofty roof. Above it were seven cataracts, which poured fourth on a certain village much water.

3 Again I looked, and behold there were fountains open on the earth in that large village.

4 The water began to boil up, and rose over the earth; so that the village was not seen, while its whole soil was covered with water.

5 Much water was over it, darkness, and clouds. Then I surveyed the height of this water; and it was elevated above the village.

6 It flowed over the village, and stood higher than the earth.

7 Then all the cows which were collected there, while I looked on them, were drowned, swallowed up, and destroyed in the water.

8 But the ship floated above it. All the cows, the elephants, the camels, and the asses, were drowned on the earth, and all cattle. Nor could I perceive them. Neither were they able to get out, but perished, and sunk into the deep.

9 Again I looked in the vision until those cataracts from that lofty roof were removed, and the fountains of the earth became equalized, while other depths were opened;

10 Into which the water began to descend, until the dry ground appeared.

11 The ship remained on the earth; the darkness receded; and it became light.

12 Then the white cow, which became a man, went out of the ship, and the three cows with him.

13 One of the three cows was white, resembling that cow; one of them was red as blood; and one of them was black. And the white cow left them.

14 Then began wild beasts and birds to bring forth.

15 Of all these the different kinds assembled together, lions, tigers, wolves, dogs, wild boars, foxes, rabbits, and the hanzar.

16 The siset, the avest, kites, the phonkas, and ravens.

17 Then the white cow (Abraham) was born in the midst of them.

18 And they began to bite each other; when the white cow, which was born in the midst of them, brought forth a wild ass and a white cow at the same time, and after that many wild asses. Then the white cow, (Isaac) which was born, brought forth a black wild sow and a white sheep. (Esau and Jacob)

19 That wild sow also brought forth many swine.

20 And that sheep brought forth twelve sheep. (The twelve patriarchs)

21 When those twelve sheep grew up, they delivered one of them (Joseph) to the asses. (The Midianites)

22 Again those asses delivered that sheep to the wolves, (The Egyptians)

23 And he grew up in the midst of them.

24 Then the Lord brought the eleven other sheep, that they might dwell and feed with him in the midst of the wolves.

25 They multiplied, and there was abundance of pasture for them.

26 But the wolves began to frighten and oppress them, while they destroyed their young ones.

27 And they left their young in torrents of deep water.

28 Now the sheep began to cry out on account of their young, and fled for refuge to their Lord. One (Moses) however, which was saved, escaped, and went away to the wild asses.

29 I beheld the sheep moaning, crying, and petitioning their Lord.

30 With all their might, until the Lord of the sheep descended at their voice from his lofty habitation; went to them; and inspected them.

31 He called to that sheep which had secretly stolen away from the wolves, and told him to make the wolves understand that they were not to touch the sheep.

32 Then that sheep went to the wolves with the word of the Lord, when another met him, (Aaron) and proceeded with him.

33 Both of them together entered the dwelling of the wolves; and conversing with them made them understand, that thenceforwards they were not to touch the sheep.

34 Afterwards I perceived the wolves greatly prevailing over the sheep with their whole force. The sheep cried out; and their Lord came to them.

35 He began to strike the wolves, who commenced a grievous lamentation; but the sheep were silent, nor from that time did they cry out.

36 I then looked at them, until they departed from the wolves. The eyes of the wolves were blind, who went out and followed them with all their might. But the Lord of the sheep proceeded with them, and conducted them.

37 All his sheep followed him.

38 His countenance was terrific and splendid, and glorious was his aspect. Yet the wolves began to follow the sheep, until they overtook them in a certain lake of water. (The Red Sea)

39 Then that lake became divided; the water standing up on both sides before their face.

40 And while their Lord was conducting them, he placed himself between them and the wolves.

41 The wolves however perceived not the sheep, but went into the midst of the lake, following them, and running after them into the lake of water.

42 But when they saw the Lord of the sheep, they turned to fly from before his face.

43 Then the water of the lake returned, and that suddenly, according to its nature. It became full, and was raised up, until it covered the wolves. And I saw that all of them which had followed the sheep perished, and were drowned.

44 But the sheep passed over this water, proceeding to a wilderness, which was without both water and grass. And they began to open their eyes and to see.

45 Then I beheld the Lord of the sheep inspecting them, and giving them water and grass.

46 The sheep already mentioned was proceeding with them, and conducting them.

47 And when he had ascended the top of the lofty rock, the Lord of the sheep sent him to them.

48 Afterwards I perceived their Lord standing before them, with an aspect terrific and severe.

49 And when they all beheld him, they were frightened at his countenance.

50 All of them were alarmed, and trembled. They cried out after that sheep; and to the other sheep who had been with him, and who was in the midst of them, saying, We are not able to stand before our Lord, or to look upon him.

51 Then that sheep who conducted them went away, and ascended the top of the rock;

52 When the rest of the sheep began to grow blind, and to wander from the path which he had shown them; but he knew it not.

53 Their Lord however was moved with great indignation against them; and when that sheep had learned what had happened,

54 He descended from the top of the rock, and coming to them, found that there were many,

55 Which had become blind;

56 And had wandered from his path. As soon as they beheld him, they feared, and trembled at his presence;

57 And became desirous of returning to their fold,

58 Then that sheep, taking with him other sheep, went to those which had wandered.

59 And afterwards began to kill them. They were terrified at his countenance. Then he caused those which had wandered to return; who went back to their fold.

60 I likewise saw there in the vision, that this sheep became a man, built a house (A tabernacle) for the Lord of the sheep, and made them all stand in the house.

61 I perceived also that the sheep which proceeded to meet this sheep, their conductor, died. I saw, too, that all the great sheep perished, while smaller ones rose up in their place, entered into a pasture, and approached a river of water. (The river Jordan)

62 Then that sheep, their conductor, who became a man, was separated from them, and died.

63 All the sheep sought after him, and cried for him with bitter lamentation.

64 I saw likewise that they ceased to cry after that sheep, and passed over the river of water.

65 And that there arose other sheep, all of whom conducted them, (The Judges of Israel) instead of those who were dead, and who had previously conducted them.

66 Then I saw that the sheep entered into a goodly place, and a territory delectable and glorious.

67 I saw also that they became satiated; that their house was in the midst of a delectable territory; and that sometimes their eyes were opened, and that sometimes they were blind; until another sheep (Samuel) arose and conducted them. He brought them all back; and their eyes were opened.

68 Then dogs, foxes, and wild boars began to devour them, until again another sheep (Saul) arose, the master of the flock, one of themselves, a ram, to conduct them. This ram began to butt on every side those dogs, foxes, and wild boars, until they all perished.

69 But the ram laid aside his glory.

70 And he began to strike the sheep, treading upon them, and behaving himself without dignity.

71 Then their Lord sent the former sheep again to a still different sheep, (David) and raised him up to be a ram, and to conduct them instead of that sheep who had laid aside his glory.

72 Going therefore to him, and conversing with him alone, he raised up that ram, and made him a prince and leader of the flock. All the time that the dogs (The Philistines) troubled the sheep,

73 The first ram paid respect to this latter ram.

74 Then the latter ram arose, and fled away from before his face. And I saw that those dogs caused the first ram to fall.

75 But the latter ram arose, and conducted the smaller sheep.

76 That ram likewise begat many sheep, and died.

77 Then there was a smaller sheep, (Solomon) a ram, instead of him, which became a prince and leader, conducting the flock.

78 And the sheep increased in size, and multiplied.

79 And all the dogs, foxes, and wild boars feared, and fled away from him.

80 That ram also struck and killed all the wild beasts, so that they could not again prevail in the midst of the sheep, nor at any time ever snatch them away.

81 And that house was made large and wide; a lofty tower being built upon it by the sheep, for the Lord of the sheep.

82 The house was low, but the tower was elevated and very high.

83 Then the Lord of the sheep stood upon that tower, and caused a full table to approach before him.

84 Again I saw that those sheep wandered, and went various ways, forsaking that their house;

85 And that their Lord called to some among them, whom he sent (The prophets) to them.

86 But these the sheep began to kill. And when one of them was saved from slaughter (Elijah) he leaped, and cried out against those who were desirous of killing him.

87 But the Lord of the sheep delivered him from their hands, and made him ascend to him, and remain with him.

88 He sent also many others to them, to testify, and with lamentations to exclaim against them.

89 Again I saw, when some of them forsook the house of their Lord, and his tower; wandering on all sides, and growing blind,

90 I saw that the Lord of the sheep made a great slaughter among them in their pasture, until they cried out to him in consequence of that slaughter. Then he departed from the place of his habitation, and left them in the power of lions, tigers, wolves, and the zeebt, and in the power of foxes, and of every beast.

91 And the wild beasts began to tear them.

92 I saw, too, that he forsook the house of their fathers, and their tower; giving them all into the power of lions to tear and devour them; into the power of every beast.

93 Then I began to cry out with all my might, imploring the Lord of the sheep, and showing him how the sheep were devoured by all the beasts of prey.

94 But he looked on in silence, rejoicing that they were devoured, swallowed up, and carried off; and leaving them in the power of every beast for food. He called also seventy shepherds, and resigned to them the care of the sheep, that they might overlook them;

95 Saying to them and to their associates, Every one of you henceforwards overlook the sheep, and whatsoever I command you, do; and I will deliver them to you numbered.

96 I will tell you which of them shall be slain; these destroy. And he delivered the sheep to them.

97 Then he called to another, and said, Understand, and watch everything which the shepherds shall do to these sheep; for many more of them shall perish than I have commanded.

98 Of every excess and slaughter, which the shepherds shall commit, there shall be an account; as, how many may have perished by my command, and how many they may have destroyed of their own heads.

99 Of all the destruction brought about by each of the shepherds there shall be an account; and according to the number I will cause a recital to be made before me, how many they have destroyed of their own heads, and how many they have delivered up to destruction, that I may have this testimony against them; that I may know all their proceedings; and that, delivering the sheep to them, I may see what they will do; whether they will act as I have commanded them, or not.

100 Of this, however, they shall be ignorant; neither shall you make any explanation to them, neither shall you reprove them; but there shall be an account of all the destruction done by them in their respective seasons. Then they began to kill, and destroy more than it was commanded them.

101 And they left the sheep in the power of the lions, so that very many of them were devoured and swallowed up by lions and tigers; and wild boars preyed upon them. That tower they burnt, and overthrew that house.

102 Then I grieved extremely on account of the tower, and because the house of the sheep was overthrown.

103 Neither was I afterwards able to perceive whether they again entered that house.

104 The shepherds likewise, and their associates, delivered them to all the wild beasts, that they might devour them. Each of them in his season, according to his number, was delivered up; each of them, one with another, was described in a book, how many of them, one with another, were destroyed, in a book.

105 More, however, than was ordered, every shepherd killed and destroyed.

106 Then I began to weep, and was greatly indignant, on account of the sheep.

107 In like manner also I saw in the vision him who wrote, how he wrote down one, destroyed by the shepherds, every day. He ascended, remained, and exhibited each of his books to the Lord of the sheep, containing all which they had done, and all which each of them had made away with;

108 And all which they had delivered up to destruction.

109 He took the book up in his hands, read it, sealed it, and deposited it.

110 After this, I saw shepherds overlooking for twelve hours.

111 And behold three of the sheep (Zerubbabel, Joshua, and Nehemiah) departed, arrived, went in; and began building all which was fallen down of that house.

112 But the wild boars (The Samaritans) hindered them, although they prevailed not.

113 Again they began to build as before, and raised up that tower, which was called a lofty tower.

114 And again they began to place before the tower a table, with every impure and unclean kind of bread upon it.

115 Moreover also all the sheep were blind, and could not see, as were the shepherds likewise.

116 Thus were they delivered up to the shepherds for a great destruction, who trod them under foot, and devoured them.

117 Yet was their Lord silent, until all the sheep in the field were destroyed. The shepherds and the sheep were all mixed together; but they did not save them from the power of the beasts.

118 Then he who wrote the book ascended, exhibited it, and read it at the residence of the Lord of the sheep. He petitioned him for them, and prayed, pointing out every act of the shepherds, and testifying before him against them all. Then taking the book, he deposited it with him, and departed.

Chapter 89 Adam to Messianic Kingdom

1 And I observed during the time, that thus thirty-five shepherds were overlooking, all of whom finished in their respective periods as the first. Others then received them into their hands, that they might overlook them in their respective periods, every shepherd in his own period.

2 Afterwards I saw in the vision, that all the birds of heaven arrived; eagles, the avest, kites and ravens. The eagle instructed them all.

3 They began to devour the sheep, to peck out their eyes, and to eat up their bodies.

4 The sheep then cried out; for their bodies were devoured by the birds.

5 I also cried out, and groaned in my sleep against the shepherd which overlooked the flock.

6 And I looked, while the sheep were eaten up by the dogs, by the eagles, and by the kites. They neither left them their body, nor their skin, nor their muscles, until their bones alone remained; until their bones fell upon the ground. And the sheep became diminished.

7 I observed likewise during the time, that twenty-tree shepherds were overlooking; who completed in their respective periods fifty-eight periods.

8 Then were small lambs born of those white sheep; who began to open their eyes and to see, crying out to the sheep.

9 The sheep, however, cried not out to them, neither did they hear what they uttered to them; but were deaf, blind, and obdurate in the greatest degrees.

10 I saw in the vision that ravens flew down upon those lambs;

11 That they seized one of them; and that tearing the sheep in pieces, they devoured them.

12 I saw also, that the horns grew upon those lambs; and that the ravens lighted down upon their horns.

13 I saw, too, that a large horn sprouted out on an animal among the sheep, and that their eyes were opened.

14 He looked at them. Their eyes were wide open; and he cried out to them.

15 Then the dabela (Alexander the Great) saw him; all of whom ran to him.

16 And besides this, all the eagles, the avest, the ravens and the kites, were still carrying off the sheep, flying down upon them, and devouring them. The sheep were silent, but the dabela lamented and cried out.

17 Then the ravens contended, and struggled with them.

18 They wished among them to break his horn; but they prevailed not over him.

19 I looked on them, until the shepherds, the eagles, the avest, and the kites came.

20 Who cried out to the ravens to break the horn of the dabela; to contend with him; and to kill him. But he struggled with them, and cried out, that help might come to him.

21 Then I perceived that the man came who had written down the names of the shepherds, and who ascended up before the Lord of the sheep.

22 He brought assistance, and caused every one to see him descending to the help of the dabela.

23 I perceived likewise that the Lord of the sheep came to them in wrath, while all those who saw him fled away; all fell down in his tabernacle before his face; while all the eagles, the avest, ravens, and kites assembled, and brought with them all the sheep of the field.

24 All came together, and strove to break the horn of the dabela.

25 Then I saw, that the man, who wrote the book at the word of the Lord, opened the book of destruction, of that destruction which the last twelve shepherds (The last 12 Jewish leaders) wrought; and pointed out before the Lord of the sheep, that they destroyed more than those who preceded them.

26 I saw also that the Lord of the sheep came to them, and taking in his hand the sceptre of his wrath seized the earth, which became rent asunder; while all the beasts and birds of heaven fell from the sheep, and sunk into the earth, which closed over them.

27 I saw, too, that a large sword was given to the sheep, who went forth against all the beasts of the field to slay them.

28 But all the beasts and birds of heaven fled away from before their face.

29 And I saw a throne erected in a delectable land;

30 Upon this sat the Lord of the sheep, who received all the sealed books;

31 Which were open before him.

32 Then the Lord called the first seven white ones, and commanded them to bring before him the first of the first stars, which preceded the stars whose form partly resembled that of horses; the first star, which fell down first; and they brought them all before him.

33 And he spoke to the man who wrote in his presence, who was one of the seven white ones, saying, Take those seventy shepherds, to whom I delivered up the sheep, and who receiving them killed more of them than I commanded. Behold, I saw them all bound, and standing before him. First came on the trial of the stars, which, being judged, and found guilty, went to the place of punishment. They thrust them into a place, deep, and full of flaming fire, and full of pillars of fire. Then the seventy shepherds were judged, and being found guilty, were thrust into the flaming abyss.

34 At that time likewise I perceived, that one abyss was thus opened in the midst of the earth, which was full of fire.

35 And to this were brought the blind sheep; which being judged, and found guilty, were all thrust into that abyss of fire on the earth, and burnt.

36 The abyss was on the right of that house.

37 And I saw the sheep burning, and their bones consuming.

38 I stood beholding him immerge that ancient house, while they brought out its pillars, every plant in it, and the ivory infolding it. They brought it out, and deposited it in a place on the right side of the earth.

39 I also saw, that the Lord of the sheep produced a new house, great, and loftier than the former, which he bound by the former circular spot. All its pillars were new, and its ivory new, as well as more abundant than the former ancient ivory, which he had brought out.

40 And while all the sheep which were left were in the midst of it, all the beasts of the earth, and all the birds of heaven, fell down and worshipped them, petitioning them, and obeying them in everything.

41 Then those three, who were clothed in white, and who, holding me by my hand, had before caused me to ascend, while the hand of him who spoke held me; raised me up, and placed me in the midst of the sheep, before the judgment took place.

42 The sheep were all white, with wool long and pure. Then all who had perished, and had been destroyed, every beast of the field, and every bird of heaven, assembled in that house: while the Lord of the sheep rejoiced with great joy, because all were good, and had come back again to his dwelling.

43 And I saw that they laid down the sword which had been given to the sheep, and returned it to his house, sealing it up in the presence of the Lord.

44 All the sheep would have been inclosed in that house, had it been capable of containing them; and the eyes of all were open, gazing on the good One; nor was there one among them who did not behold him.

45 I likewise perceived that the house was large, wide, and extremely full. I saw, too, that a white cow was born, whose horns were great; and that all the beasts of the field, and all the birds of heaven, were alarmed at him, and entreated him at all times.

46 Then I saw that the nature of all of them was changed, and that they became white cows;

47 And that the first, who was in the midst of them, spoke, when that word became a large beast, upon the head of which were great and black horns;

48 While the Lord of the sheep rejoiced over them, and over all the cows.

49 I lay down in the midst of them: I awoke; and saw the whole. This is the vision which I saw, lying down and waking. Then I blessed the Lord of righteousness, and gave glory to Him.

50 Afterwards I wept abundantly, nor did my tears cease, so that I became incapable of enduring it. While I was looking on, they flowed on account of what I saw; for all was come and gone by; every individual circumstance respecting the conduct of mankind was seen by me.

51 In that night I remembered my former dream; and therefore wept and was troubled, because I had seen that vision.

Chapter 90

1 And now, my son Mathusala, call to me all your brethren, and assemble for me all the children of your mother; for a voice calls me, and the spirit is poured out upon me, that I may show you everything which shall happen to you for ever.

2 Then Mathusala went, called to him all his brethren, and assembled his kindred.

3 And conversing with all his children in truth,

4 Enoch said, Hear, my children, every word of your father, and listen in uprightness to the voice of my mouth; for I would gain your attention, while I address you. My beloved, be attached to integrity, and walk in it.

5 Approach not integrity with a double heart; nor be associated with double-minded men: but walk, my children, in righteousness, which will conduct you in good paths; and be truth your companion.

6 For I know, that oppression will exist and prevail on earth; that on earth great punishment shall in the end take place; and that there shall be a consummation of all iniquity, which shall be cut off from its root, and every fabric raised by it shall pass away. Iniquity, however, shall again be renewed, and consummated on earth. Every act of crime, and every act of oppression and impiety, shall be a second time embraced.

7 When therefore iniquity, sin, blasphemy, tyranny, and every evil work, shall increase, and when transgression, impiety, and uncleanness also shall increase, then upon them all shall great punishment be inflicted from heaven.

8 The holy Lord shall go forth in wrath, and upon them all shall great punishment from heaven be inflicted.

9 The holy Lord shall go forth in wrath, and with punishment, that he may execute judgment upon earth.

10 In those days oppression shall be cut off from its roots, and iniquity with fraud shall be eradicated, perishing from under heaven.

11 Every place of strength shall be surrendered with its inhabitants; with fire shall it be burnt. They shall be brought from every part of the earth, and be cast into a judgment of fire. They shall perish in wrath, and by a judgment overpowering them for ever.

12 Righteousness shall be raised up from slumber; and wisdom shall be raised up, and conferred upon them.

13 Then shall the roots of iniquity be cut off; sinners perish by the sword; and blasphemers be annihilated everywhere.

14 Those who meditate oppression, and those who blaspheme, by the sword shall perish.

15 And now, my children, I will describe and point out to you the path of righteousness and the path of oppression.

16 I will again point them out to you, that you may know what is to come.

17 Hear now, my children, and walk in the path of righteousness, but shun that of oppression; for all who walk in the path of iniquity shall perish for ever.

Chapter 91 Words of Wisdom

1 That which was written by Enoch. He wrote all this instruction of wisdom for every man of dignity, and every judge of the earth; for all my children who shall dwell upon earth, and for subsequent generations, conducting themselves uprightly and peaceably.

2 Let not your spirit be grieved on account of the times; for the holy, the Great One, has prescribed a period to all.

3 Let the righteous man arise from slumber; let him arise, and proceed in the path of righteousness, in all its paths; and let him advance in goodness and eternal clemency. Mercy shall be showed to the righteous man; upon him shall be conferred integrity and power for ever. In goodness and in righteousness shall he exist, and shall walk in everlasting light; but sin shall perish in eternal darkness, nor be seen from that time forward for evermore.

Matthew 17:10-13

New American Standard 1977

And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?”
And He answered and said, “Elijah is coming and will restore all things;
but I say to you, that Elijah already came, and they did not recognize him, but did to him whatever they wished. So also the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.”
Then the disciples understood that He had spoken to them about John the Baptist.

Mattheus 17:10-13

Ou Afrikaanse vertaaling 1953

En sy dissipels vra Hom en se: Waarom se die skrifgeleerdes dan dat Elia eers moet kom?
En Jesus antwoord en se vir hulle: Dis waar, Elia kom eers en sal alles herstel;
maar Eks se vir julle dat Elia al gekom het, en hulle het hom nie erken nie, maar aan hom alles gedoen wat hulle wou. So sal die Seun van die mens ook deur hulle ly.
Toe verstaan die dissipels dat Hy met hulle van Johannes die Doper gespreek het.

Bible teaching

Like the life of John the Baptist reflexes what Jesus will do and that they will kill him, or try to (Jesus came back to life), so to will the life of Elijah who is to come before the great day of the Lord, reflex which will happen when Jesus returns. Elijah will come to conquer and conquering, Like Jesus will come back to conquer the entire planet.
