|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 (Stars)
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
