|Commentary on the
Book of Enoch, Chapter 24:1-6.
The Seven Mountains in the North-West and the Tree of Life
24:1 And from thence I went to another place of the earth, and he showed me a mountain
range of fire which burnt day and night.
24:2 And I went beyond it and saw seven magnificent mountains all differing each from the
other, and the stones thereof were magnificent and beautiful, magnificent as a whole, of
glorious appearance and fair exterior: three towards the east, one founded on the other,
and three towards the south, one upon the other, and deep rough ravines, no one of which
joined any other.
24:3 And the seventh mountain was in the midst of them, and it excelled them in height,
resembling the seat of a throne: and fragrant trees encircled the throne.
24:4 And among them was a tree such as I had never yet smelt, neither was any amongst
them nor were others like it: it had a fragrance beyond all fragrance, and its leaves and
blooms and wood wither not for ever: and its fruit is beautiful and its fruit resembles the
dates of a palm.
24:5 Then I said: How beautiful is this tree and fragrant, and its leaves are fair, and its
blooms very delightful in appearance.
24:6 Then answered Michael, one of the holy and honoured angels who was with me, and
was their leader.
