1 Enoch (Ethiopic) Parallel Translations

XLIII-XLIV. ASTRONOMICAL SECRETS.

Charles < < Chapter XLIII / Chapter 43 > > Laurence

XLIII

1And I saw other lightnings and the stars of heaven, and I saw how He called them all by their 2names and they hearkened unto Him. And I saw how they are weighed in a righteous balance according to their proportions of light: [I saw] the width of their spaces and the day of their appearing, and how their revolution produces lightning: and [I saw] their revolution according to the 3number of the angels, and [how] they keep faith with each other. And I asked the angel who went 4with me who showed me what was hidden: 'What are these?' And he said to me: 'The Lord of Spirits hath showed thee their parabolic meaning [lit. 'their parable']: these are the names of the holy who dwell on the earth and believe in the name of the Lord of Spirits for ever and ever.'

 

43

43:1 I beheld another splendour, and the stars of heaven. I observed that he called them all by their respective names, and that they heard. In a righteous balance I saw that he weighed out with their light the amplitude of their places, and the day of their appearance, and their conversion. Splendour produced splendour; and their conversion [was] into the number of the angels, and of the faithful.

43:2 Then I inquired of the angel, who proceeded with me, and explained to me secret things, What [their names] were. He answered. A similitude of those has the Lord of spirits shown you. They are names of the righteous who dwell upon earth, and who believe in the name of the Lord of spirits for ever and for ever.
