Commentary on the
Book of Enoch, Chapter 37:1-5.


The Parables
37:1  The second vision which he saw, the vision of wisdom—which Enoch the son of Jared,
          the son of Mahalalel, the son of Cainan, the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam,
37:2  And this is the beginning of the words of wisdom which I lifted up my voice to speak
          and say to those which dwell on earth: Hear, ye men of old time, and see, ye that come after,
          the words of the Holy One which I will speak before
Yehuveh of spirits.
37:3  It were better to declare them only to the men of old time, but even from those that
          come after we will not withhold the beginning of wisdom.
37:4  Till the present day such wisdom has never been given by Yehuveh of spirits as I have
          received according to my insight, according to the good pleasure of Yehuveh of spirits by
the lot of eternal life has been given to me.
37:5  Now three parables were imparted to me, and I lifted up my voice and recounted them
          to those that dwell on the earth.

37:4 In contrast to the present teaching that eternal life becomes ours only at the very end of the present age when Yehuveh completes the judgement of this earth, according this statement of Enoch’s experience, t he lot of eternal life can be given to anyone at any time that Yehuveh deems fitting.
        The potential exists, then, that this
lot of eternal life could even now be given to you or me if we draw as close to Yehuveh as did Enoch.
