nd he said to me: "O Enoch, contemplate the writing of the tablets of heaven, and read what is written thereon, and learn each one."
And I contemplated everything on these tablets of heaven, and read everything that was written, and learned everything and read the book and everything that was written in it, all the deeds of men and all the children of flesh who will be on the earth to the generation of eternity.
And then I immediately blessed the Lord and the everlasting King of glory, that he had made all the things of the earth, and I blessed the Lord on account of his patience, and blessed him on account of the children of the world.
And at that time I said: "Happy the man who dies as a just and good one, concerning whom there is no book of iniquity written, and against whom no blame is found."
And those three holy ones brought me and placed me on the earth before the door of my house and said to me: "Announce everything to thy son Methuselah, and show to all thy children that no flesh is just before the Lord, for he has created them.
One year we will leave thee with thy children, till thou art again strengthened, that thou mayest teach thy children and write for them, and mayest testify before them all, thy children; and in the second year they will lift thee up out of their midst.
Let thy heart be strong, for the good will announce justice to the good, the just will rejoice with the just and will congratulate themselves among themselves.
But the sinner will die with the sinner, and the renegade sink down with the renegade.
And those who do justice will die on account of the deeds of men, and will be gathered in on account of the deeds of the impious."
And in those days they completed conversing with me, and I went to my people blessing the Lord of the worlds.
