1And those two men took me up into the second heaven and set me down in the second heaven. 2And they showed me the prisoners, under guard, of 1 R ‘awaiting’. the immeasurable judgement; 2 So BBa, supported by NR: U is corrupt. and there I saw angels that had been condemned, weeping. 3And I said to the men who were with me, Why are these in torment? The men answered me, These are apostates from the Lord, who were not obedient to the Lord's commands, 3 Lit. ‘voice’. but took counsel with their own will. 4 R adds ‘they deserted with their prince and those who are made fast in the fifth heaven’. 4And I was very sorry for them. And the angels bowed low to me and said, Man of God, we ask you that you would pray to the Lord for us. 5And I answered them and said, Who am I, a mortal man, that I should pray for angels; for who knows where I am going, or what will become of me, or who will pray for me?
