LXX Isaiah 1:1


1 A vision, which Esaias son of Amos saw— which he saw against Judea and against Ierousalem in the reign of Ozias and Ioatham and Achaz and Hezekias, who reigned over Judea. 2 Hear, O heaven, and give ear, O earth, for the Lord has spoken: I begat sons and exalted them, but they rejected me. 3 The ox knows its owner, and the donkey its master’s crib, but Israel has not known me, and the people have not understood me.

1 Enoch 37:1


1 The second vision which he saw, the vision of wisdom which Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalalel, the son of Cainan, the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, saw. 2 And this is the beginning of the words of wisdom which I raised my voice to speak and say to those who dwell on earth: Hear, you men of old time, and see, you who come after, the words of the Holy One which I will speak before the Lord of Spirits. 3 It would be better to declare them only to the men of old time, but even from those who come after, we will not withhold the beginning of wisdom.

 Notes and References

"... By inference, the superscription presents the book as a piece of prophecy, as is evident from its similarity to the wording of Isaiah 1:1... The LXX of Isaiah 1:1 is even closer to our Ethiopic, which can be retroverted... this similarity in word order might indicate that this verse in the Parables was translated into Greek with knowledge of Isaiah 1:1 LXX; see also the word order of Isaiah 13:1 in Hebrew..." ..."
