1 Enoch 1:9


8 But with the righteous, He will establish peace. He will protect the chosen, and mercy will be upon them. They will all belong to God, prosper, and be blessed. He will aid them, and light will shine for them, and He will make peace with them. 9 Behold! He comes with tens of thousands of His holy ones to pass judgment upon all, to annihilate all the wicked, to convict every soul of all the godless deeds they have committed, and of all the harsh words that godless sinners have spoken against Him.

Pseudo Cyprian To Novatia

Ad Novatianum

Let's keep in mind the day of judgment and the fact that God does not show favoritism. As Deuteronomy says, 'You shall not show partiality in judgment; you shall hear the small and the great alike.' Ezekiel also said, 'All souls are mine; the soul that sins shall die.' We must therefore revere God, hold fast to Him, and make a worthy confession to Him. He has the power to send both our soul and body to the Gehenna of fire. As written, 'Behold, He is coming with thousands of His holy ones, to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their works of ungodliness which they have ungodly done, and of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.'

 Notes and References

"... Latin: Pseudo-Cyprian Ad Novatianum quotes 1 Enoch 1:9. The fact that the author of the text takes a full line that is not included in Jude 1:9 is evidence that the author was not citing Jude, but rather 1 Enoch ..."
