Isaiah 24:21

Hebrew Bible

19 The earth is broken in pieces, the earth is ripped to shreds, the earth shakes violently. 20 The earth will stagger around like a drunk; it will sway back and forth like a hut in a windstorm. Its sin will weigh it down, and it will fall and never get up again. 21 At that time the Lord will punish the heavenly forces in the heavens and the earthly kings on the earth. 22 They will be imprisoned in a pit, locked up in a prison, and after staying there for a long time, they will be punished. 23 The full moon will be covered up, the bright sun will be darkened; for the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will rule on Mount Zion in Jerusalem in the presence of his assembly, in majestic splendor.

2 Enoch 7:1

Secrets of Enoch

1 Those men took me and led me up to the second heaven, and showed me darkness, greater than earthly darkness. There I saw prisoners hanging, watched, awaiting the immense and boundless judgment, and these spirits appeared darker than earthly darkness, constantly weeping at all hours. 2 I said to the men who were with me: 'Why are these being constantly tortured?' They answered me: 'These are God's defectors, who did not obey God's commands but followed their own will, and turned away with their leader, who is also confined on the fifth heaven.'
