|Commentary on the
Book of Enoch, Chapter 18:1.
18:1 I saw the treasuries of all the winds; I saw how He had furnished with them the
whole creation and the firm foundations of the earth.
18:1 This might mean more if translated, “the treasuries of all the spirits,” in harmony with the information in The Book of Enoch. Unlike our current education that rocks, water and stars are inanimate or non-living, Enoch presents every aspect of Yehuveh’s creation as having life—chemicals, earth, air, water, space, stars, planets, etc. These all have spirits of their own, and therefore abilities to follow the laws established for them by their Creator. Seeing the whole treasuries of all things would be to understand the laws governing and spirits moving every aspect of science.
[21 July 2006] These four winds of heaven are literally four spirits of shamayim, “the sky,” four moving, living forces of motion. Twice Daniel mentions them: Daniel 7:2; 8:8 and 11:4, “Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.” “Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.” “And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.” Here it appears to be the four directions, but in Enoch it appears to be four forces of motion, which would include rotation of the earth and the heating and cooling forces which generate the movement of air, namely the prevailing or trade winds, and the more local weather driving forces such as evaporation that create storms and bring rain.
Also relating here are the comments in Jeremiah 49:36, “And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come.” and Zechariah 2:6, “Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith Yehuveh: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith Yehuveh.”
