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.

Mark 8:38

New Testament

36 For what benefit is it for a person to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his life? 37 What can a person give in exchange for his life? 38 For if anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

 Notes and References

"... Verse 9 is noteworthy for its use in early Christianity. Jude 14-15 quotes all but line c, citing the text as a prophecy by 'Enoch, the seventh from Adam' ... 1 Thessalonians 3:13 and Mark 8:38 speak of 'the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his holy ones' and of the Son of Man, who 'comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.' Perhaps belief in the parousia of the Son of Man triggered the citation of 1 Enoch 1:9 in Jude or its use in the tradition behind I Thessalonians 3:13. It is perhaps significant that 52:5-9 interprets 1 Enoch 1:37 to refer to the corning of the Anointed and Chosen One ..."
