Commentary on the
Book of Enoch, Chapter 21:1-10.


The Second Journey of Enoch

Preliminary and Final Place of Punishment
                            of the Fallen Angels
21:1  And I proceeded to where things were chaotic.
21:2  And I saw there something horrible: I saw neither a heaven above nor a firmly founded
          earth, but a place chaotic and horrible.
21:3  And there I saw seven stars of the heaven bound together in it, like great mountains
          and burning with fire.
21:4  Then I said: ‘For what sin are they bound, and on what account have they been cast in
21:5  Then said
Uriel, one of the holy angels, who was with me, and was chief over them,
          and said: ‘Enoch, why dost thou ask, and why art thou eager for the truth?
21:6  These are of the number of the stars of heaven which have transgressed the
commandment of Yehuveh, and are bound here till ten thousand years, the time entailed
          by their sins, are consummated.’
21:7  And from thence I went to another place, which was still more horrible than the former,
          and I saw a horrible thing: a great fire there which burnt and blazed, and the place was
          cleft as far as the abyss, being full of great descending columns of fire: neither its extent
          or magnitude could I see, nor could I conjecture.
21:8  Then I said: ‘How fearful is the place and how terrible to look upon!’
21:9  Then
Uriel answered me, one of the holy angels who was with me, and said unto me:
          ‘Enoch, why has thou such fear and affright?’ And I answered: ‘Because of this fearful
          place, and because of the spectacle of the pain.’
21:10  And he said unto me: ‘This place is the prison of the angels, and they will be imprisoned
          for ever.’
