Text Commentary

1And at that time, said Enoch, when I had completed three 2hundred and sixty-five years, 1 R has ‘when my one hundred and sixty-fifth year was accomplished, I begot my son Methusalam. And after that I lived two hundred years: I completed all the years of my life, three hundred and sixty-five’. in the first month, on a certain day 2 R adds ‘the first day’, which Vaillant explains as the first or seventh day of Easter (the 15th or 22nd of the month Nisan), a festal day which Enoch spends in retreat. of the first month, I was in my house alone, weeping and sorrowing with my eyes. 3While I was resting on my bed, sleeping, 3 U ‘I slept’. there appeared to me two men, very great, such as I had never seen on earth. 4Their faces were like the shining sun, their eyes burned like 5candles, out of their mouths came what looked like fire, and their clothing was a diffusion of foam, and their arms like golden wings at the head of my bed; and they called me by my name. 6I awoke from my sleep, and the two men were really standing by me. 4 R ‘and I saw clearly the two men standing before me’. 7And I made haste and got up and bowed down to them; and my face was covered with frost from fright. 8And the men said to me, Take courage, Enoch, do not be afraid: the eternal Lord has sent us to you; and behold, you shall go up with us today to heaven. 9And tell your sons 5 So U: BN etc. add ‘and (R + ‘all’) your household’. all they must do on earth, and in your house; and let no one look for you until the Lord returns you to them. 10And I obeyed them and went out. I called my sons Methusalom and Rigim 6 R adds ‘and Gaidad’. and I told them everything the men had said to me.
