1 Enoch (Ethiopic) Parallel Translations

Charles < < Chapter XLII / Chapter 42 > > Laurence

XLII. THE DWELLING-PLACES OF WISDOM AND OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

XLII

1Wisdom found no place where she might dwell;
Then a dwelling-place was assigned her in the heavens.

2Wisdom went forth to make her dwelling among the children of men,
And found no dwelling-place:

Wisdom returned to her place,
And took her seat among the angels.

3And unrighteousness went forth from her chambers:
Whom she sought not she found,
And dwelt with them,

As rain in a desert
And dew on a thirsty land.

 

42

42:1 Wisdom found not a place [on earth] where she could inhabit; her dwelling therefore is in heaven.

42:2 Wisdom went forth to dwell among the sons of men, but she obtained not a habitation. Wisdom returned to her place, and seated herself in the midst of the angels. But iniquity went forth after her return, who unwillingly found [a habitation], and resided among them, as rain in the desert, and as a dew in a thirsty land.
