1 Enoch 11:1


1 And in those days, I will open the storehouses of blessings that are in heaven, so as to send them down upon the earth to bless the work and labor of the children of men. 2 And truth and peace will be joined together throughout all the days of the world and through all the generations of men.

1 Peter 1:4

New Testament

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he gave us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 that is, into an inheritance imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. It is reserved in heaven for you, 5 who by God’s power are protected through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 This brings you great joy, although you may have to suffer for a short time in various trials.

"... God cleanses the earth from all iniquity and an age is envisioned in which God ‘opens the store chamber of heaven’ upon the righteous (1 Enoch 11:1–2), language taken from the blessings of the Deuteronomistic tradition (Deuteronomy 28:16) ..."
