Text Commentary

1And now I understand in the book of Enoch that you will go astray and profane the priesthood and pollute the sacrifices for seventy weeks. 2And you will set aside the law and discredit the words of the prophets: you will persecute righteous men with a crazy determination and hate the godly and abhor the words of the faithful. 3And you will brand as a deceiver a man who renews the law in the power of the Most High, unaware of who he is, 1 Lit. ‘unaware of his majesty’. and you will finally kill him, as you suppose, and through your wickedness bring innocent blood upon your heads. 4Because 2 So b k: II ‘And because’. of him your sanctuary will be laid waste, levelled to the ground, and polluted. 5And your land 3 Lit. ‘place’. will be unclean; and 4 Lit. ‘but’. a curse will rest upon you, and you will be dispersed among the Gentiles until he comes to you and once more receives you in pity through 5 Lit. ‘in’. faith and water.

Notes:
