Commentary on the
Book of Enoch, Chapter 78:1-7.


The Sun and Moon: The Waxing and Waning of the Moon
78:1  The names of the sun are the following: the first Orjrs, and the second Tms.
78:2  And the moon has four names: the first is Asny, the second Ebl, the third Bens, and
          the fourth Ere.
78:3  These are the two great luminaries: their circumference is like the circumference of the
          heaven, and the size of the circumference of both is alike.
78:4  In the circumference of the sun there are seven portions of light which are added to it
          more than to the moon, and in definite measures it is transferred till the seventh portion
          of the sun is exhausted.
78:5  And they set and enter the portals of the west, and make their revolution by the north,
          and come forth through the eastern portals on the face of the heaven.
78:6  And when the moon rises one-fourteenth part appears in the heaven: the light becomes
          full in her: on the fourteenth day she accomplished her light.
78:7  And fifteen parts of light are transferred to her till the fifteenth day when her light is
          accomplished, according to the sign of the year, and she becomes fifteen parts, and
          the moon grows by the addition of fourteenth parts.
