Text Commentary

1and said to me, Enoch, why do you ask me 1 me: D′AOXB′ Gk.a om.; Gk.a adds ‘and why did you wonder’. about the fragrance of this tree, and why do you inquire to learn? 2 Gk.a ‘and why do you wish to learn the truth?’ 2Then I, Enoch, 3 Enoch: QD′ Gk.a om. answered him, saying, 4 saying: Gk.a om. I wish to learn about everything, but especially about this tree. 3And he answered me, 5 me: GD′ Gk.a om. saying, This high mountain which you saw, 6 which you saw: Gk.a om. whose summit is like the throne of the Lord, 7 Gk.a ‘of God’. is the throne where the Holy and Great One, the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King, 8 the Holy … King: Gk.a ‘the Great Lord, the Holy One of Glory, the King of Eternity’. will sit when he comes down to visit the earth for good. 4And this beautiful 9 beautiful: GMQT1UD′ Gk.a (below) om. fragrant tree – and no creature of flesh has authority to touch it until the great judgement when he will take vengeance on all and will bring everything to a consummation 10 So GTD′: other Eth.

I (literally ‘this therefore’); Eth.II ‘that’. will be given to the righteous and humble. 13 Gk.a ‘Then it will be given to the righteous and holy’. 5From its fruit life will be given to the chosen; towards the north 14 From its fruit … towards the north: Gk.a ‘Its fruit will be to the chosen as food for life’; D′ is corrupt, but in part supports Gk.a. The difference in Greek between ‘towards the north’ (all Eth. MSS) and ‘as food’ (Gk.a) is only one letter. it will be planted, in 15 Gk.a ‘and it will be transplanted to’. a holy place, by the house of the Lord, the Eternal King. 16 Gk.a ‘of God, the King of Eternity’. 6Then they will rejoice with joy and be glad in 17 D′ ‘and in’. the holy place; they 18 GQOB′C′ ‘and they’. will each 19 each: GMQT1UD′K1N om. draw the fragrance of it into their bones, 20 and be glad … their bones: Gk.a ‘and be glad and into the holy place they will enter; the fragrance of it will be in their bones’. and they will live a long life on earth, as your fathers lived, and in their days sorrow and pain and toil 21 Eth.I ‘and torment’. and punishment 22 sorrow … punishment: Gk.a ‘torment and plague and punishment’. will not touch them. 7Then I blessed the Lord 23 MTUD′ Gk.a ‘the God’; C′ om. ‘of glory’. of Glory, the Eternal King, 24 Gk.a ‘the King of Eternity’. because he 25 because he: Gk.a ‘who’. has prepared such things for righteous men, and has created such things 26 such things: Gk.a ‘them’. and said that they are to be given to them.
