    CHAPTER 1 - THE BLESSING OF ENOCH

    These are the words of the blessing of Enoch; according to which he blessed the chosen and righteous who must be present on the day of distress, which is appointed, for the removal of all the wicked and impious.

    And Enoch began his story and said: -

    There was a righteous man whose eyes were opened by the Lord, and he saw a Holy vision in the Heavens, which the Angels showed to me. And I heard everything from them, and I understood what I saw: but not for this generation, but for a distant generation that will come.

    Concerning the Chosen I spoke; and I uttered a parable concerning them: The Holy and Great One will come out of his dwelling.

    And the Eternal God will tread from there upon Mount Sinai, and he will appear with his Host, and will appear in the strength of his power from Heaven.

    And all will be afraid, and the Watchers will shake, and fear and great trembling will seize them, up to the ends of the earth.

    And the high mountains will be shaken; and the high hills will be laid low and will melt like wax in a flame.

    And the earth will sink, and everything that is on the earth will be destroyed, and there will be judgment upon all, and upon all the righteous.

    But for the righteous: He will make peace, and He will keep safe the Chosen, and mercy will be upon them. They will all belong to God, and will prosper and be blessed, and the light of God will shine on them.

    And behold! He comes with ten thousand Holy Ones; to execute judgment upon them and to destroy the impious, and to contend with all flesh concerning everything that the sinners and the impious have done and wrought against Him.

     

    CHAPTER 2 - GOD'S LAWS

    Contemplate all the events in the sky; how the lights in the sky do not change their courses, how each rises and sets in order, each at its proper time, and they do not transgress their law.

    Consider the earth and understand from the work that is done upon it, from the beginning to the end, that no work of God changes as it becomes manifest.

    Consider the summer and the winter; how the whole earth is full of water and the clouds and dew and rain rest upon it.

    3.1 Contemplate and see how all the trees appear withered and all their leaves are stripped - with the exception of the fourteen trees, which are not stripped, which remain with the old leaves until the new come after two or three years.

    4.1 And, again, contemplate the days of summer; how at its beginning the Sun is above it. You seek shelter and shade because of the heat of the Sun and the earth burns with scorching heat, and you cannot tread upon the earth or upon a rock, because of its heat.

    Contemplate how the trees are covered with green leaves and bear fruit. And understand, in respect of everything, and perceive how He Who Lives Forever made all these things for you.

    And how His works are before Him in each succeeding year, and all His works serve Him and do not change; but as God has decreed - so everything is done.

    And consider how the seas and rivers together complete their tasks.

    But you have not persevered in, nor observed, the Law of the Lord. But you have transgressed and have spoken proud and hard words with your unclean mouth against his majesty.  You hard of heart! You will not have peace!

    And because of this you will curse your days, and the years of your life you will destroy. And the eternal curse will increase and you will not receive mercy.

    In those days, you will transform your name into an eternal curse to all the righteous. And they will curse you sinners forever.

    For the chosen; there will be light, joy, and peace, and they will inherit the earth. But for you, the impious, there will be a curse.

    When wisdom is given to the chosen they will all live, and will not again do wrong, either through forgetfulness, or through pride. But those who possess wisdom will be humble.

    They will not again do wrong, and they will not be judged in all the days of their life, and they will not die of wrath or anger. But they will complete the number of the days of their life. And their life will grow in peace, and the years of their joy will increase in gladness and eternal peace; all the days of their life.
