The Book of Jasher
|III:1. And Enoch lived sixty-five years and he begat Methuselah; and Enoch walked with Elohim
after having begot Methuselah, and he served Yehuveh, and despised the evil ways of men.

understanding; and he wisely retired from the sons of men, and secreted himself from them
for many days.
III:3. And it was at the expiration of many years, whilst he was serving Yehuveh, and praying before
Him in his house, that an angel of Yehuveh called to him from Heaven, and he said, Here am I.
III:4. And he said, Rise, go forth from thy house and from the place where thou dost hide thyself,
and appear to the sons of men, in order that thou mayest teach them the way in which they
should go and the work which they must accomplish to enter in the ways of Elohim.
III:5. And Enoch rose up according to the word of Yehuveh, and went forth from his house, from
his place and from the chamber in which he was concealed; and he went to the sons of men
and taught them the ways of Yehuveh, and at that time assembled the sons of men and
acquainted them with the instruction of Yehuveh.
III:6. And he ordered it to be proclaimed in all places where the sons of men dwelt, saying, Where
is the man who wishes to know the ways of Yehuveh and good works? Let him come to Enoch.

and Enoch reigned over the sons of men according to the word of Yehuveh, and they came
and bowed to him and they heard his word.

his ways, and the sons of men served Yehuveh all the days of Enoch, and they came to hear
III:9. And all the kings of the sons of men, both first and last, together with their princes and judges,

required of Enoch to reign over them, to which he consented.

king over them and they were all under his power and command.
