1 Enoch was an important and popular text in ancient Judaism, well attested among the manuscripts at Qumran, and a key piece of the puzzle of the development of early Judaism and Christian origins. George W. E. Nickelsburg and James C. VanderKam have now revised their translation in conjunction with their publication of the complete two volumes on 1 Enoch in the Hermeneia commentary series. This is the only English translation of 1 Enoch that takes into consideration all of the textual data now available in the Ethiopic version and the Greek texts, in addition to the Dead Sea Aramaic fragments.
“And the fourth voice I heard driving away the satans,” (Page 54)
“And after that their faces will be filled with darkness and shame in the presence of that Son of Man” (Page 83)
“The souls of the pious who have died will come to life” (Page 158)
“Here the watchers’ sin is described as the forbidden intermixture of flesh and spirit. Different from chapters 6–11, the death of the watchers does not annihilate them, but releases their spirits to constitute a realm of evil spirits who plague humanity until the final judgment.” (Page 2)
“And on the day of the great judgment, he will be led away to the burning conflagration” (Page 28)
