1 Enoch 9:4


1 And then Michael, Uriel, Raphael, and Gabriel looked down from heaven and saw much blood being shed on the earth, and all lawlessness being committed on the earth. 2 And they said to one another: 'The earth, left without inhabitants, cries out, and the voice of their crying reaches the gates of heaven.' 3 'And now to you, the holy ones of heaven, the souls of men plead, saying, "Present our case before the Most High."' 4 And they said to the Lord of the ages: 'Lord of lords, God of gods, King of kings, and God of the ages, the throne of Your glory stands through all generations, and Your name is holy and glorious and blessed through all ages! 5 You have created all things, and over all things, You have power: all things are open and visible in Your sight, and You see all things, and nothing can hide from You. 6 You see what Azâzal has done, who has taught all unrighteousness on earth and revealed the eternal secrets that were kept in heaven, which men were eager to learn:

Revelation 19:16

New Testament

11 Then I saw heaven opened and here came a white horse! The one riding it was called “Faithful” and “True,” and with justice he judges and goes to war. 12 His eyes are like a fiery flame and there are many diadem crowns on his head. He has a name written that no one knows except himself. 13 He is dressed in clothing dipped in blood, and he is called the Word of God. 14 The armies that are in heaven, dressed in white, clean, fine linen, were following him on white horses. 15 From his mouth extends a sharp sword so that with it he can strike the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod, and he stomps the winepress of the furious wrath of God, the All-Powerful. 16 He has a name written on his clothing and on his thigh: “King of kings and Lord of lords.” 17 Then I saw one angel standing in the sun, and he shouted in a loud voice to all the birds flying high in the sky: “Come, gather around for the great banquet of God, 18 to eat your fill of the flesh of kings, the flesh of generals, the flesh of powerful people, the flesh of horses and those who ride them, and the flesh of all people, both free and slave, and small and great!”

 Notes and References

"... The fourth name for Christ in Revelation 19 is his designation as 'King of Kings and the Lord of Lords', written on his garment and his thigh in Revelation 19:16. Traditionally, this designation is given to God in various Hebrew Bible and early Jewish passages, as is reflected for instance in Deuteronomy 10:17; Ezekiel 26:7; Daniel 2:37; Daniel 4: 7 (LXX); Ezra 7:12; Psalm 136:2; 2 Maccabees 13:4; 3 Maccabees 5:35; 1 Enoch 9:4; 63:2; 84:2; 1QM 14:16; 4Q491 or 4Q381. (As we have mentioned in section 4.2.1., similar names have also been attributed to Christ in New Testament literature) ..."
