And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years and he died, and Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years and begat Jared, and Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared 830 years and begat sons and daughters, and all the days of Mahalaleel were 895 and he died and Jared lived a hundred and sixty and two years and begat Enoch and Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years and begat sons and daughters and Jared taught Enoch in all the ways of God and this is the genealogy of the Sons of God which was the sons of Adam with whom God himself conversed and they were preachers of righteousness and spake and prophesied and called upon all men every where to repent and faith was taught unto the children of men and it came to pass that all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years and he died and Enoch lived sixty and five year[s] and begat Methuselah and it came to pass that Enoch journeyed in the land among the people and as he journeyed the spirit of God decended out of heaven and abode upon him and he heared a voice from heaven saying Enoch my son prophecy unto this people and say unto them repent for thus saith the Lord I am angry with this people and my fierse anger is kindled against them for their hearts have waxed hard and their ears are dull of hearing and their eyes cannot see a far off and for these many generations even since the day I that I created them have they gone a stray and have denied me and have saught their own councils in the dark and in their own abominations have they devised murder and have not kept the commandment that <​which​> I gave unto their father Adam where fore they have foresworn themselves and by their oaths they have eat[en] unto themselves death and an hell I have prepared for them if they repent not and this is a decree which I have sent forth in the begining of the world from mine own mouth from the foundation thereof and by the mouths of my servants thy fathers have I decreed it even as it shall be sent forth in the world unto the end thereof And when Enoch had heared these words he bowed himself to the earth before the Lord and spake before the Lord saying why is it that I have found favour in thy sight and am but a lad and all the people hate me for I am slow of speech wherefore am I thy servant and the Lord said unto Enoch go forth and do as I have commanded thee and no man shall pierce thee open thy mouth and it shall be filled I will give thee utterance for all flesh is in my hands and I will do as seemeth me good say unto this people choose ye this day a God who made you behold my spirit is upon you wherefore all thy words will I justify and the mountains [p. 12]
