The Book of the Secrets of Enoch, also known as The Second Book of Enoch, or Old Bulgarian Enoch, is an ancient religious text, which describes the intensity of the Antediluvian (pre-Flood) time period. Enoch was a venerated patriarch and great-grandfather of Noah. After his son, Methuselah, was born, Enoch began to “walk with God” – that is, he began to seek, to know, to serve, and to pray to God, and he continued this for the next 300 years! Throughout his life, he visited Heaven in his visions and dreams. At the age of 365, Enoch disappeared, “because God took him away” straight to Heaven, for he was pleasing to God.

Today, we will read from chapters 49 to 62 from “The Book of the Secrets of Enoch,” where Enoch, after being sent to Earth by God, shares timeless wisdom with his sons and those around them, about the good, virtuous, and righteous way of living, which will save one’s soul. Enoch’s message is one of being truthful and generous toward all beings and to have sincere faith in the benevolent Creator.

“I have put every man’s work in writing and none born on Earth can remain hidden nor his works remain concealed. I see all things. Now therefore, my children, in patience and meekness spend the number of your days, that you inherit endless life. Endure for the sake of the Lord every wound, every injury, every evil word and attack. If ill-requitals befall you, return (them) not either to neighbor or enemy, because the Lord will return (them) for you and be your avenger on the day of Great Judgment, that there be no avenging here among men. Whoever of you spends gold or silver for his brother’s sake, he will receive ample treasure in the world to come. Injure not widows nor orphans nor strangers, lest God’s wrath come upon you.”

“And now, my children, do not say: Our father is standing before God, and is praying for our sins, for there is no helper of any man who has sinned. You see how I wrote all works of every man, before his creation, (all) that is done amongst all men for all time, and none can tell or relate my handwriting, because the Lord sees all imaginings of man, how they are vain, where they lie in the treasure-houses of the heart.”
