Charles < < Chapter XII / Chapter 12 {no 11} > > Laurence

XII

1Before these things Enoch was hidden, and no one of the children of men knew where he was 2hidden, and where he abode, and what had become of him. And his activities had to do with the Watchers, and his days were with the holy ones. 3And I Enoch was blessing the Lord of majesty and the King of the ages, and lo! the Watchers 4called me --Enoch the scribe-- and said to me: 'Enoch, thou scribe of righteousness, go, declare to the Watchers of the heaven who have left the high heaven, the holy eternal place, and have defiled themselves with women, and have done as the children of earth do, and have taken unto themselves 5wives: "Ye have wrought great destruction on the earth: And ye shall have no peace nor forgiveness 6of sin: and inasmuch as they delight themselves in their children, The murder of their beloved ones shall they see, and over the destruction of their children shall they lament, and shall make supplication unto eternity, but mercy and peace shall ye not attain."'

 

12

12:1 Before all these things Enoch was concealed; nor did any one of the sons of men know where he was concealed, where he had been, and what had happened.

12:2 He was wholly engaged with the holy ones, and with the Watchers in his days.

12:3 I, Enoch, was blessing the great Lord and King of peace.

12:4 And behold the Watchers called me Enoch the scribe.

12:5 Then [the Lord] said to me: Enoch, scribe of righteousness, go tell the Watchers of heaven, who have deserted the lofty sky, and their holy everlasting station, [who] have been polluted with women.

12:6 And have done as the sons of men do, by taking to themselves wives, and [who] have been greatly corrupted on the earth;

12:7 That on the earth they shall never obtain peace and remission of sin. For they shall not rejoice in their offspring; they shall behold the slaughter of their beloved; shall lament for the destruction of their sons; and shall petition for ever; but shall not obtain mercy and peace.
