|Commentary on the
Book of Enoch, Chapter 72:1-6.
The Book of the Courses of the Heavenly Luminaries : The Sun
72:1 The Book of the courses of the luminaries of the heaven, the relations of each, according to
their classes, their dominion and their seasons, according to their names and places of origin,
and according to their months, which Uriel, the holy angel, who was with me, who is their
guide, showed me; and he showed me all their laws exactly as they are, and how it is with
regard to all the years of the world and unto eternity, till the new creation is accomplished
which dureth till eternity.
72:2 And this is the first law of the luminaries: the luminary the Sun has its rising in the eastern
portals of the heaven, and its setting in the western portals of the heaven.
72:3 And I saw six portals in which the sun rises, and six portals in which the sun sets: and the
moon rises and sets in these portals, and the leaders of the stars and those whom they lead:
six in the east and six in the west, and all following each other in accurately corresponding
order: also many windows to the right and left of these portals.
72:4 And first there goes forth the great luminary, named the Sun, and his circumference is like
the circumference of the heaven, and he is quite filled with illuminating and heating fire.
72:5 The chariot on which he ascends, the wind drives, and the sun goes down from the heaven
and returns through the north in order to reach the east, and is so guided that he comes
to the appropriate portal and shines in the face of the heaven.
72:6 In this way he rises in the first month in the great portal, which is the fourth [those six
portals in the east].
