|Commentary on the
Book of Enoch, Chapter 13:1-4.
His Intercessions for Azâzêl and the Fallen Angels
13:1 And Enoch went and said: ‘Azâzêl, thou shalt have no peace: a severe sentence has
gone forth against thee to put thee in bonds:
13:2 And thou shalt not have toleration nor request granted to thee, because of the
unrighteousness which thou hast taught, and because of all the works of godlessness
and unrighteousness and sin which thou hast shown to men.’
13:3 Then I went and spoke to them all together, and they were all afraid, and fear and
trembling seized them.
13:4 And they besought me to draw up a petition for them that they might find forgiveness,
and to read their petition in the presence of Yehuveh of heaven.
13:1-2 This sentence spoken against Azâzêl is also true for anyone who chooses a course directly opposed to Yehuveh. “There is no peace, saith Yehuveh, unto the wicked.” “There is no peace, saith my Elohim, to the wicked.” Isaiah 48:22; 57:21.
13:3 Fear appears to be the natural response to conviction of wrong, and these heavenly beings were not nearly as bold at this point as they had been when they covenanted together to marry and have families. Likewise, Yehuveh told Israel that they would go from confidence to fear if they chose to turn from His ways: “And upon them that are left alive of you I will send a faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a shaken leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as fleeing from a sword; and they shall fall when none pursueth.” “And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life.” Leviticus 26:36; Deuteronomy 28:66.
13:4 This is a backwards situation, as Yehuveh Himself points out to Enoch, and Enoch in turn points out to these fallen angels in Enoch 15:2, “And go, say to the Watchers of heaven, who have sent thee to intercede for them: ‘You should intercede for men, and not men for you.’”
