The Book of Enoch. Chapter 56.


1. And I saw there the hosts of the Angels of Punishment, as they went, and they were holding chains of iron and bronze.
(Psalm 149:6-9)

2. And I asked the Angel of Peace, who went with me, saying: “To whom are those who are holding the chains going?”

3. And he said to me: “Each to his own chosen ones, and to their beloved ones, so that they may be thrown into the chasm, in the depths of the valley.”

4. And then, that valley will be filled with their chosen and beloved ones, and the days of their life will be at an end, and the days of their leading astray will no longer be counted.

5. And in those days, the Angels will gather together, and will throw themselves towards the east, upon the Parthians and Medes. They will stir up the kings so that a disturbing spirit will come upon them, and they will drive them from their thrones; and they will come out like lions from their lairs, and like hungry wolves in the middle of their flocks.

6. And they will go up and trample on the Land of My Chosen Ones, and the land of my chosen ones will become before them a tramping-ground and a beaten track.

7. But the City of My Righteous Ones will be a hindrance to their horses, and they will stir up slaughter amongst themselves, and their own right hand will be strong against them. And a man will not admit to knowing his neighbour, or his brother, nor a son his father, or his mother, until, through their death, there are corpses enough; and their punishment – it will not be in vain.

8. And in those days Sheol will open its mouth and they will sink into it and their destruction; Sheol will swallow up the sinners in front of the faces of the chosen.”
(Proverbs 29:16)


(Psalm 149:6-9) “6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand,
7 To execute vengeance on the nations, And punishments on the peoples;
8 To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron;
9 To execute on them the written judgment— This honor have all His saints. Praise the Lord!”

(Proverbs 29:16) “16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increases; But the righteous will see their fall.”
