That he would call upon the children of Noah And he sent forth an unalterable decree that <​from​> a remnant of his seed should always be found among <​come all nations​> all Nations while the Earth should stand. <​/​> And the Lord said, blessed is him <​he​> through whose <​21/​> seed the Masiah should <​shall​> come; For he saith, I am the Masiah, the King of Zion; the rock of Heaven, which is broad as eternity, & whoso cometh in at the gate & climbeth up by me, shall never fall. <​/​> Wherefore, blessed are they of which <​whom​> <​22/​> I have spoken, for they shall come forth with songs of everlasting Joy. <​/​> And it came to pass, that Enoch cried <​22/​> unto the Lord, saying, when the Son of man cometh in the flesh shall the Earth rest? I pray thee shew me these things. And the Lord said unto Enoch, look, & he looked & beheld the son of man lifted upon the cross, after the manner of men. And he heard a loud voice, & the Heavens were veiled; & all the creation of God mourned; And the Earth groaned; & the rocks were rent; & the saints arose, & were crowned at the right hand of the Son of man with crowns of glory. & as many of the spirits as were in Prison came forth & stood on the right hand of God. & the remainder were reserved in chains of darkness untill the Judgement of the great day. <​/​> And again Enoch wept, & cried unto the <​23/​> Lord again, Saying, when Shall the Earth rest? & Enoch beheld the Son of man ascend up unto the Father; & he called unto the Lord, Saying, wilt thou not come again upon the Earth? for, in as much as thou art God, & I know thee & thou hast sworn unto me & commanded me that I should ask in the name of thine only begotten. Thou hast made me & given <​unto​> me a right to thy throne, and not of myself but through thine own grace; wherefore, I ask thee if thou wilt not come again on the Earth? <​/​> & the Lord <​24/​> said unto Enoch, As I live, even so will I come in the last days, in the days of wickedness & vengence, to fulfill the oath which I have made unto you concerning the Children of Noah. And the day shall come that the Earth shall rest. But before that day the Heavens shall be darkened, & a veil of darkness shall cover the Earth; & the Heavens shall shake & also the Earth. A great tribulation shall be among the children of men, but my People will I preserve; & righteousness will I [p. 24]
