|Commentary on Enoch’s Second Vision
from the Book of Enoch, Chapter 96:1-4.
Grounds of Hopefulness for the Righteous: Woe for the Wicked
96:1 Be hopeful, ye righteous; for suddenly shall the sinners perish before you,
And ye shall have lordship over them according to your desires.
96:2 And in the day of the tribulation of the sinners,
Your children shall mount and rise as eagles,
And higher than the vultures will be you nest,
And ye shall ascend and enter the crevices of the earth,
And the clefts of the rock for ever as coneys before the unrighteous,
And the sirens shall sigh because of you and weep.
96:3 Wherefore fear not, ye that have suffered;
For healing shall be your portion,
And a bright light shall enlighten you,
And the voice of rest ye shall hear from heaven.
96:4 Woe unto you, ye sinners, for your riches make you appear like the righteous,
But your hearts convict you of being sinners,
And this fact shall be a testimony against you for a memorial of your evil deeds.
