Let them perish by mutual slaughter; for length of days shall not be theirs. More accurately, "bastards" Charles, p. Knibb, ed.
And when all their sons shall be slain, when they shall see the perdition of their beloved, bind them for seventy generations underneath the earth, even to the day of judgment, and of consummation, until the judgment, the effect of which will last for ever, be completed. In those days all the earth shall be cultivated in righteousness; it shall be wholly planted with trees, and filled with benediction; every tree of delight shall be planted in it.
Exterminate them from the earth. 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. A great sentence is gone forth against you.
He shall bind you;. I fell down and saw a vision of punishment, that I might relate it to the sons of heaven, and reprove them.
When I awoke I went to them. All being collected together stood weeping in Oubelseyael, which is situated between Libanos and Seneser, 17 with their faces veiled. I perceived in my dream, that I was now speaking with a tongue of flesh, and with my breath, which the Mighty One has put into the mouth of men, that they might converse with it. As he has created and given to men the power of comprehending the word of understanding, so has he created and given to me the power of reproving the Watchers, the offspring of heaven. I have written your petition; and in my vision it has been shown me, that what you request will not be granted you as long as the world endures.
Or, "Likewise despite your tears and prayers you will receive nothing whatever contained in the writing which I have written" Charles, p. I proceeded, until I arrived at a wall built with stones of crystal. A vibrating flame 20 surrounded it, which began to strike me with terror. Its walls too, as well as pavement, were formed with stones of crystal, and crystal likewise was the ground.
Its roof had the appearance of agitated stars and flashes of lightning; and among them were cherubim of fire in a stormy sky. When I entered into this dwelling, it was hot as fire and cold as ice. No trace of delight or of life was there. Terror overwhelmed me, and a fearful shaking seized me. A fire was flaming around Him.
To Him holy consultation was needless. Yet did not the sanctified, who were near Him, depart far from Him either by night or by day; nor were they removed from Him. I also was so far advanced, with a veil on my face, and trembling. Then the Lord with his own mouth called me, saying, Approach hither, Enoch, at my holy word. My eye was directed to the ground. Go, say to the Watchers of heaven, who have sent you to pray for them, You ought to pray for men, and not men for you. Evil spirits shall proceed from their flesh, because they were created from above; from the holy Watchers was their beginning and primary foundation.
Evil spirits shall they be upon earth, and the spirits of the wicked shall they be called. The habitation of the spirits of heaven shall be in heaven; but upon earth shall be the habitation of terrestrial spirits, who are born on earth. No food shall they eat; and they shall be thirsty; they shall be concealed, and shall not 26 rise up against the sons of men, and against women; for they come forth during the days of slaughter and destruction.
Nearly all manuscripts contain this negative, but Charles, Knibb, and others believe the "not" should be deleted so the phrase reads "shall rise up.

Then I passed on towards the south;. Those towards the south were of a red stone. The middle one reached to heaven like the throne of God; a throne composed of alabaster, the top of which was of sapphire. I saw, too, a blazing fire hanging over all the mountains.
Over these fountains also I perceived a place which had neither the firmament of heaven above it, nor the solid ground underneath it; neither was there water above it; nor anything on wing; but the spot was desolate. Therefore was He offended with them, and bound them, until the period of the consummation of their crimes in the secret year. For in the great day there shall be a judgment, with which they shall be judged, until they are consumed; and their wives also shall be judged, who led astray the angels of heaven that they might salute them.
Nor did any human being see it, as I saw it. I exclaimed, For what species of crime have they been bound, and why have they been removed to this place? Then Uriel, one of the holy angels who was with me, and who conducted me, answered: Enoch, wherefore do you ask; wherefore do you reason with yourself, and anxiously inquire? These are those of the stars which have transgressed the commandment of the most high God; and are here bound, until the infinite number of the days of their crimes be completed.
Columns of fire struggled together to the end of the abyss, and deep was their descent.
But neither its measurement nor magnitude was I able to discover; neither could I perceive its origin. Then I exclaimed, How terrible is this place, and how difficult to explore! This, he said, is the prison of the angels; and here they are kept for ever. And I saw the spirits of the sons of men who were dead; and their voices reached to heaven, while they were accusing. He answered, Three separations have been made between the spirits of the dead, and thus have the spirits of the righteous been separated.

Moreover, abundant is their suffering until the time of the great judgment, the castigation, and the torment of those who eternally execrate, whose souls are punished and bound there for ever.

Their souls shall not be annihilated in the day of judgment, neither shall they arise from this place. Then I blessed God,.
I proceeded towards it; and perceived seven splendid mountains, which were all different from each other. Three mountains were towards the east, and strengthened by being placed one upon another; and three were towards the south, strengthened in a similar manner. There were likewise deep valleys, which did not approach each other.
And the seventh mountain was in the midst of them. In length they all resembled the seat of a throne, and odoriferous trees surrounded them. Its leaf, its flower, and its bark never withered, and its fruit was beautiful. I exclaimed, Behold! This tree is goodly in aspect, pleasing in its leaf, and the sight of its fruit is delightful to the eye.
Then Michael, one of the holy and glorious angels who were with me, and one who presided over them, answered,.
When all shall be punished and consumed for ever, this shall be bestowed on the righteous and humble. The fruit of the tree shall be given to the elect. For towards the north life shall be planted in the holy place, towards the habitation of the everlasting King. The sweet odor shall enter into their bones; and they shall live a long life on the earth as your forefathers have lived; neither in their days shall sorrow, distress, trouble, and punishment afflict them. There I saw a holy mountain, and underneath it water on the eastern side, which flowed towards the south. I saw also on the east another mountain as high as that; and between them there were deep, but not wide valleys.
All these valleys, which were deep, but not side, consisted of a strong rock, with a tree which was planted in them. And I wondered at the rock and at the valleys, being extremely surprised. Here shall be collected all who utter with their mouths unbecoming language against God, and speak harsh things of His glory. Here shall they be collected.
