1 Enoch (Ethiopic) Parallel Translations

Charles < < Chapter XVI / Chapter 16 > > Laurence

XVI

1From the days of the slaughter and destruction and death of the giants, from the souls of whose flesh the spirits, having gone forth, shall destroy without incurring judgement --thus shall they destroy until the day of the consummation, the great judgement in which the age shall be 2consummated, over the Watchers and the godless, yea, shall be wholly consummated." And now as to the watchers who have sent thee to intercede for them, who had been aforetime in heaven, [say 3to them]: "You have been in heaven, but all the mysteries had not yet been revealed to you, and you knew worthless ones, and these in the hardness of your hearts you have made known to the women, and through these mysteries women and men work much evil on earth." 4Say to them therefore: "You have no peace."'

 

16

16:1 And as to the death of the giants, wheresoever their spirits depart from their bodies, let their flesh, that which is perishable, be without judgment. (27) Thus shall they perish, until the day of the great consummation of the great world. A destruction shall take place of the Watchers and the impious.

(27) Let their flesh…be without judgment. Or, "their flesh shall be destroyed before the judgment" (Knibb, p. 102).

16:2 And now to the Watchers, who have sent you to pray for them, who in the beginning were in heaven,

16:3 [Say], In heaven have you been; secret things, however, have not been manifested to you; yet have you known a reprobated mystery.

16:4 And this you have related to women in the hardness of your heart, and by that mystery have women and mankind multiplied evils upon the earth.

16:5 Say to them, Never therefore shall you obtain peace.
