Book of Enoch Chapter 6

  • First Book of Enoch

    The Ethiopic Book of Enoch

    Chapter 6.

    1. It came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born to them beautiful and fair daughters.

    Genesis 6:1   And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

    Gen. 6:2   That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they  took them wives of all which they chose.

    Gen. 6:3   And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

    2. And the angels, the sons of heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another : Come, let us choose us wives fro among the children of men.

    3.  And have children with them. And Semjaza, who was their leader, said to them: I fear you will not agree to do this deed,

    4.  And I alone shall have to pay the penalty of this great sin.

    5. And they all answered him and said: Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual curse so wee will not abandon this plan but to do this thing. Then they all swore together and bound themselves by mutual curse.

    6. And they were in all two hundred who descended in the days of Jared in the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn and bound thenselves by nutual curses on the act.

    Author's Note:

    Jared is the father of Enoch. Mount Hermon is located in the highest point in Israel. It covers an area of about 5,000 acres and is 2814 meters above sea level.

    Jude 1:5  I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the LORD, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

    Jude 1:6   And the angels who kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgement of the great day.

    7. And these are the names of their leaders: Samlazaz, their leader Araklba, Rameel, Kokablel, Ramlel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Baraqijal,

    Author's Note:

    Samlazaz could be another spelling of Semjaza, and possibly be the same entity.

    8. Asael, Armaros, Batarel, Ananel, Zaqiel, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Jomjael, Sariel. These are their chiefs of tens.

    Much more is revealed in later chapters and further in the Ethiopic Book of Enoch. As you read further you will find it interesting on how the daughters of men may also bear burden of this fall. As they Dyed their body parts and dressed alluring, wearing jewel and paints on the faces and other body parts. I hope this brief outline will bring you to reading this Book of Enoch I have the Lumpkin version and looking to purchasing the hard back leather bound with out references from a scholar. Do have a blessed day and keep your Temple clean "Amen"
