The Concluding Section of the Book: 1-11. 18-19 Enoch's Admonition to his Children. 12-17 The Last Three Weeks.*
nd now, my son Methuselah, call to me all thy brothers, and assemble to me all the children of thy mother, for the word calls me, and the spirit is poured out over me, that I show you all that will happen to you to eternity.
And then Methuselah went and called all his brothers to him and assembled his relatives.
And he conversed with all his children concerning justice, and said: "Hear, my children, all the words of your father, and listen properly to the voice of my mouth, for I admonish you and tell you, my beloved, love rectitude and walk in it.
And do not approach rectitude with a double heart, and do not associate with those of a double heart, but walk in justice, my children, and she will lead you in the good path, and justice will be your companion.
For I know that a condition of oppression will grow strong on the earth, and great punishment will be completed over the earth, and all injustice will be completed and be cut off by the roots, and its whole habitation destroyed.
And again injustice will be repeated, and all the deeds of injustice and the deeds of oppression and of sin will be renewed on the earth.
And when injustice and sin and reviling and oppression and all the deeds will increase, and falling-off and reviling and uncleanness will increase; there will be a great punishment from heaven upon them all, and the holy Lord will come forth in anger, and with punishment, that he may pass judgment on the earth.
And in those days oppression will be cut off from its roots, and the roots of injustice together with deception, and they will be destroyed from under heaven.
And all the pictures of the heathens will be given away; the towers will be burned by fire, and they will be removed from the whole earth, and will be thrown into a condemnation of fire, and will be destroyed in anger, and in a strong judgment which will be to eternity.
And the just one will arise from sleep, and wisdom will arise and will be given to them.
And then the roots of injustice will be cut off, and the sinners will be destroyed with the sword, and the roots of the revilers will be cut off in every place, and those who contemplate oppression and revile will be destroyed by the edge of the sword.
And after that there will be another week, the eighth, that of justice, and the sword will be given to it, that it may pass judgment and justice on those who practice injustice, and the sinners will be delivered into the hands of the just.
And in the end of it they will acquire houses through their justice, and they will build a house to the Great King as an honor to eternity.
And after that, in the ninth week, the judgment of justice will be revealed to all the world, and all the doings of the impious will depart from the world, and the world will be written out for destruction, and all men will look for the path of rectitude.
And after this, in the tenth week, in the seventh part, there will be the judgment to eternity, which is held over the watchers and the great heavens of eternity which will spring forth from the midst of the angels.
And the first heaven will pass away and cease, and a new heaven will appear, and all the powers of heaven will shine to eternity seven fold.
Isa. 30:26. Rev. 21:1
And after that there will be many weeks, without number, to eternity, in goodness and in justice, and sin will not be mentioned from that time on to eternity.
And now I tell you, my children, and show you the paths of justice and the paths of oppression, and I will show them to you again that ye may know what will come.
And now hear, my children, and walk in the paths of justice, and do not walk in the paths of oppression, for they will be destroyed in eternity who walk in the paths of injustice.
