<Prophecy  of  Enoch> I looked and beheld the land of Sharon, and the  land of Enoch, and the land of Omner, and the land  of Heni, and the land of Shem, and the land of Haner, and the  land of Hannannihah, and all the inhabitants thereof;  And the Lord said unto me, go to this people and say unto  them, Repent, lest I shall come out and smite them with a  curse, and they die. And he gave unto me a  that I should in the name of the Father and  the Son, which is full of grace and truth, and the Holy  Ghost, which beareth record of the Father and the Son.
And it came to pass that Enoch continue to call upon all  the people, save it were the people of Canaan, to repent: And  so great was the faith of Enoch that he lead led the people of  God, and their enemies came to battle against them, and  he spoke the word of the Lord, and the earth trembled;  and the mountains fled, even according to his com mand; and the rivers of waters were turned out of their course;  and the roar of the lions was heard out of the wilderness; and  all nations feared greatly, so powerful was the word of Enoch,  and so great was the power of the language, which God had  given him. There also came up a land out of the depth of the  sea; and so great was the fear of the enemies of the people of  God that they fled and stood afar off, and went upon the land  which came up out of the depths of the sea. And the giants  of the land, also, stood afar off; and there went forth a curse  upon all people that fought against God; and from that time  forth there was wars and blood-sheds among them, but the  Lord came and dwelt with his people, and they dwelt  in righteousness. The fear of the Lord was upon all nations,  so great was the glory of the Lord, which was upon his people:  And the Lord blessed the land, and they were blessed upon the  mountains, and upon the high places, and did flourish. And  the Lord called his people , because they were of one heart  and one mind, and dwelt in righteousness; and there was  no poor among them: and Enoch continued his preaching in  righteousness unto the people of God. And it came to  pass in his days, that he built a city that was called— the  city of Holiness, even. Zion.
