Example text

The angels then request that Enoch deliver a message of judgment to the watchers who descended, and in the process the patriarch becomes the intercessor for these transgressors (1 Enoch 12:3–13:7). Yet, Enoch’s supplications on their behalf prove futile. The seer is lifted up in a vision to the heavenly throne room where God reiterates a harsh message of condemnation (1 Enoch 13:8–16:4). Enoch apparently departs from the heavenly temple to continue a journey throughout the cosmos. He observes places of punishment for the watchers and other disobedient creatures as well as sites related to the visitation and future judgment of God (1 Enoch 17–36).

Yet to suggest that there are distinct literary units or divisions in the Book of the Watchers is not to explain the process of composition or development of the text. 38 While it is possible for one to read the cosmic journeys of chapters 17–19 as a continuation of Enoch’s ascent described in 1 Enoch 14:8–16:4 (see above), the ineffective transition from 1 Enoch 6–16 to 17–19 urges us to consider other scenarios that explain the union of 1 Enoch 6–16 (or 12–16) and 17–19. Since 1 Enoch 17–19 does not smoothly pick up the narrative context of 1 Enoch 6–16, the implication is that 1) these chapters in the Book of the Watchers’ early history have been joined to 1 Enoch 6–16 or 2) a critical portion of the text has been lost.

There is no proper close to Enoch’s ascent since 1 Enoch 17:1 does not explicitly refer to the vision of God, to the heavenly palace or to the message Enoch is to deliver. Further, the beginning of chapter 17 also is in need of an introduction. 26 Milik, however, challenges the assumption that 1 Enoch 17–19 is a literary unit distinct from 1 Enoch 6–16.
