1 Enoch 1:9
8 But with the righteous He will make peace. And will protect the elect, And mercy shall be upon them. And they shall all belong to God, And they shall be prospered, And they shall ⌈all⌉ be blessed. ⌈And He will help them all⌉, And light shall appear unto them, ⌈And He will make peace with them⌉. 9 And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of ⌈His⌉ holy ones To execute judgement upon all, And to destroy ⌈all⌉ the ungodly: And to convict all flesh Of all the works ⌈of their ungodliness⌉ which they have ungodly committed, And of all the hard things which ungodly sinners ⌈have spoken⌉ against Him.
17 For the flesh has desires that are opposed to the Spirit, and the Spirit has desires that are opposed to the flesh, for these are in opposition to each other, so that you cannot do what you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, depravity, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostilities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish rivalries, dissensions, factions, 21 envying, murder, drunkenness, carousing, and similar things. I am warning you, as I had warned you before: Those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God!
Notes and References
"... In the context of the flood narrative, the earth’s total corruption occurs in the aftermath of the descent of the “Sons of God” (Gen 6:1–4; see also 1 En. 6–9). In the Enochic tradition “all flesh” was defiled by the Watchers’ transgressions, requiring divine judgment (Gen 6:1–5, 11–13, 17; 1 En. 6–19; Jub. 5:1–11; see also 1 En. 81:5). As Robert Jewett has noted, there is similarity between Gal 2:16 and Enochic tradition. The opening theophany of BW describes a similarly pessimistic view of “all flesh” and “human works” ..."
