Isaiah 65:14

Hebrew Bible

13 So this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “Look, my servants will eat, but you will be hungry. Look, my servants will drink, but you will be thirsty. Look, my servants will rejoice, but you will be humiliated. 14 Look, my servants will shout for joy as happiness fills their hearts. But you will cry out as sorrow fills your hearts; you will wail because your spirits will be crushed. 15 Your names will live on in the curse formulas of my chosen ones. The Sovereign Lord will kill you, but he will give his servants another name.

1 Enoch 47:4


3 In those days, I saw the Head of Days when He seated himself upon the throne of His glory, and the books of the living were opened before Him; and all His host which is in heaven above and His counselors stood before Him. 4 And the hearts of the holy were filled with joy because the number of the righteous had been offered, the prayer of the righteous had been heard, and the blood of the righteous had been required before the Lord of Spirits.

 Notes and References

"... The allusion to the Daniel 7:9 theophany shows a further connection with chapter 46, since the same theophany scene is found in 46:1, although there are some differences in the two portrayals. In 47:3 is seen the divine response to the petitions of verses 1-2. Whereas in Daniel 7:10 "books" symbolize the forensic judgment of the eschatological beast, here they have become merged with the book of life mentioned in Daniel 12:1-2. The books still have a forensic sense, but now indicate specifically that God's judgment is being passed in favor of the saints and against their persecutors. It is appropriate that the book idea should also be brought in since it is directly associated with the deliverance of righteous Israel from their persecutors in the end-time, as well as with the implied judgment of these persecutors. 1 Enoch 47:4 concludes the chapter with an expression of thanks to God for the decision of vindication which He has made ..."
