1 Enoch 18:13


10 And I saw a deep abyss, with columns of heavenly fire, and among them I saw columns of fire fall, which were beyond measure alike in height and depth. 11 And beyond that abyss I saw a place which had no firmament of heaven above, and no firmly founded earth beneath it; there was no water upon it, and no birds, but it was a waste and horrible place. 12 I saw there seven stars like great burning mountains, and to me, when I inquired about them, 13 The angel said: 'This place is the end of heaven and earth; this has become a prison for the stars and the host of heaven. 14 And the stars which roll over the fire are those which have transgressed the command of the Lord at the beginning of their rising, because they did not come forth at their appointed times. 15 And He was angry with them, and bound them until the time when their guilt should be consummated, even for ten thousand years.'

Revelation 8:8

New Testament

6 Now the seven angels holding the seven trumpets prepared to blow them. 7 The first angel blew his trumpet, and there was hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was thrown at the earth so that a third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up. 8 Then the second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain of burning fire was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea became blood, 9 and a third of the creatures living in the sea died, and a third of the ships were completely destroyed. 10 Then the third angel blew his trumpet, and a huge star burning like a torch fell from the sky; it landed on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 (Now the name of the star is Wormwood.) So a third of the waters became wormwood, and many people died from these waters because they were poisoned.

 Notes and References

"... seven stars like great burning mountains — While “stars” is used in verse 15 is a term that points to the transgressing Watchers, the stars here are restricted to seven and are described as being “like burning mountains.” The conclusion must be that the term can be used of both divine beings and objects. The conceptual overlap between celestial objects and divine beings in ancient cosmology is behind this seeming incongruity. The same sort of star-entity equation is witnessed in the Hebrew Bible (Job 38:7–8; Daniel 12:2–3; cp. the phrase “host of heaven” for heavenly beings; e.g., 1 Kings 22:19 and 1 Enoch 18:14) ..."
