|Commentary on Enoch’s Second Vision
from the Book of Enoch, Chapter 99:1-5.
Woes Pronounced on the Godless, the Lawbreakers:
Evil Plight of Sinners in the Last Days: Further Woes
99:1 Woe to you who work godlessness,
And glory in lying, and extol them:
Ye shall perish, and no happy life shall be yours.
99:2 Woe to them who pervert the words of uprightness,
And transgress the eternal law,
And transform themselves into what they were not [into sinners]:
They shall be trodden under foot upon the earth.
99:3 In those days make ready, ye righteous, to raise your prayers as a memorial,
And place them as a testimony before the angels,
That they may place the sin of the sinners for a memorial before the Most High.
99:4 In those days the nations shall be stirred up,
And the families of the nations shall arise on the day of destruction.
99:5 And in those days the destitute shall go forth and carry off their children,
And they shall abandon them, so that their children shall perish through them:
Yea, they shall abandon their children that are still sucklings, and not return to them,
And shall have no pity on their beloved ones.
