|Commentary on the
Book of Enoch, Chapter 71:1-7.
Two Earlier Visions of Enoch
71:1 And it came to pass after this that my spirit was translated
And it ascended into the heavens:
And I saw the holy sons of Elohim.
They were stepping on flames of fire:
Their garments were white and their raiment,
And their faces shone like snow.
71:2 And I saw two streams of fire,
And the light of that fire shone like a hyacinth,
And I fell on my face before Yehuveh of spirits.
71:3 And the angel Michael one of the archangels seized me by my right hand,
And lifted me up and led me forth into all the secrets,
And he showed me all the secrets of righteousness.
71:4 And he showed me all the secrets of the ends of the heaven,
And all the chambers of all the stars, and all the luminaries,
Whence they proceed before the face of the holy ones.
71:5 And he translated my spirit into the heaven of heavens,
And I saw there as it were a structure built of crystals,
And between those crystals tongues of living fire.
71:6 And my spirit saw the girdle which girt that house of fire,
And on its four sides were streams full of living fire,
And they girt that house.
71:7 And round about were Seraphin, Cherubin, and Ophannin:
And these are they who sleep not
And guard the throne of His glory.
