CARTHAGE, Mo. — The standoff between Sheriff Archie Dunn and the Jasper County Commission continued Thursday, with commissioners phoning their counterparts in area counties to tell them no money had been budgeted for housing overflow inmates from the county jail elsewhere.

No more inmates have been moved beyond the 40 who were relocated as of midafternoon Wednesday, but Dunn said more transfers are planned.

“We’ve been checking for available beds; our count is down to 188 inmates,” he said. He has said the jail was designed for a capacity of 153 inmates.

Dunn said he was not concerned about contacts the commission was making regarding reimbursements for inmate housing costs. But he said he sent a copy of the presentation he made Tuesday to the commission to Sheriff Ron Peckham in Vernon County, after questions were raised about the 20 inmates who were moved there.

Peckham said he wanted to discuss the issue with the county prosecutor before commenting, but the Globe’s efforts to reach Peckham later in the day Thursday were unsuccessful.

Bonnie McCord, presiding commissioner in Vernon County, said she alerted the prosecutor and the sheriff after getting a call from Darieus Adams, Western District associate commissioner in Jasper County.

“We wanted to make sure the sheriff was aware of this,” she said. “We don’t have funds to house another entity’s inmates without being reimbursed for it.”

John Bartosh, presiding Jasper County commissioner, said the panel was attempting to find out how many inmates had been transferred, and where, but Dunn had not responded to his emailed question.

Bartosh said he hand-delivered a letter to Dunn’s office on Wednesday, saying inmate transfers planned by Dunn could cost the county $100,000 per month, and that expenses would have to be approved by the county auditor. The letter said the commissioners “will not condone nor pay for a taxpayer-funded room and board plan.”

Extended Unemployment is the Socialism

---

It's painfully obvious, to me, what extended unemployment checks are about. It's NOT about helping you put food on your table or some grand "humanitarian mission".

If it had stopped long ago, or were it to stop now, consumer loan defaults would skyrocket..

Corporate bankruptcies

[More] Bank failures

The collapse of teetering insurance and health care industries

A collapse of student loans

Forget about housing.. it's dead already..

A collapse in revenue for everyone up the food chain all the way to Washington

In the local paper here I have been seeing layoffs increase lately. freeman Hospital and I saw a week or so ago Tyson is letting go 10% of their work force in Kansas.

Unemployment claims jumped (surely unexpectedly lol) just this week and not looking good for the last three weeks.

Dollar is making new lows, markets, metals and commodities making new highs.

I'm telling you this looks like some sort of bomb to me.. And, to me, it looks like it could go off any time now..

In the mean time, I'm thinking about getting a day job just for the guarantee of a lifetime income! LMAO

So how long CAN government and the FED / Central Bankers keep all of this artificially propped up?

Longer than *I* thought for sure..

Food and Energy Inflation is NOT Transitory - #NIA

Food and Energy Inflation is Not Transitory

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on Wednesday held his first press conference in history. The press conference took place shortly after the Fed announced its decision to leave the Fed Funds Rate at a record low of 0% to 0.25%, where it has been for an unprecedented 28 months. The U.S. economy is flooded with U.S. dollars and is close to overdosing on excess liquidity. The fact that our financial markets are not falling on the possibility of the Fed not unleashing QE3 immediately at the end of QE2, shows that we could be on the verge of hyperinflation with or without QE3.

The Federal Reserve currently has a mandate of both maintaining price stability and facilitating job creation. However, central banks don't have the ability to create real employment. If any jobs happen to be created as a result of a central bank's policies, they are only temporary jobs created due to the errors and distortions of phony asset bubbles. All phony asset bubbles that are fueled by monetary inflation eventually burst, sending unemployment through the roof.

Almost every major central bank besides the Federal Reserve, understands the truth about job creation, and has a mandate that focuses solely on keeping price inflation low. The Bank of Japan, Swiss National Bank, Bank of Canada, and Bank of New Zealand, all have mandates that are entirely about low inflation and don't even mention the creation of jobs or the rate of employment. Bernanke said on Wednesday that, "while it is very, very important for us to try to help the economy create jobs and to support the recovery, I think every central banker understands that keeping inflation low and stable is absolutely essential to a successful economy."

Bernanke has decided to go down a route that no central banker has ever gone before. Bernanke has literally invented countless ways to create inflation that nobody else has ever thought of. If keeping inflation low was ever Bernanke's slightest concern, the Fed Funds Rate would currently be north of 5% and the U.S. economy would be in a steep recession. Bernanke has never once thought about keeping inflation low. He has literally implemented every measure he could possibly think of to create as much inflation as possible, while outright lying to the American public and saying that he isn't printing money and that inflation is under control.

Bernanke would like the public to believe that his policies of expanding the money supply through cheap and easy money will cause the U.S. economy to recover and unemployment to decline back to pre-crisis levels, and that right before price inflation spirals out of control, he can raise interest rates and prevent massive price inflation without disrupting the recovery. Unfortunately, this is impossible because the recovery isn't real and massive price inflation is already here. Bernanke's policies may have created 1 million artificial jobs since December of 2009, after 8.75 million jobs were lost in the previous two years, but he did this at the expense of 310 million Americans already seeing double-digit percentage increases in food and energy prices.

Since after the Real Estate bubble burst in late-2008, the primary economic concern of Americans has been finding a stable job in order to make mortgage payments and put food on the table. Under the pressure of Congress, the Fed printed enough money to prevent a much needed recession that would be healthy for the long-term U.S. economy. In its attempt to reinflate the Real Estate bubble, the Fed has been destroying the free market and creating new economic distortions, which caused an artificial bounce in the rate of employment. Unfortunately, when you add together the money the Fed has either printed or committed for bailouts and stimulus programs, over $4 million has been spent for each job created. The Fed would have been better off just crediting the bank accounts of unemployed Americans with the average U.S. income.

When asked about rising gas prices, NIA is very happy that Chairman Bernanke acknowledged that gas prices "have risen quite significantly" and are "creating a great deal of financial hardship for a lot of people". Bernanke admitted that gas is a "necessity" as "people need to drive to work" for the artificial jobs Bernanke created at a cost of $4 million per job. However, Bernanke seemed to be confused when he said "higher gas prices add to inflation". The truth is, Bernanke's zero percent interest rates and quantitative easing are the inflation, and inflation leads to higher gas prices.

Bernanke is directly responsible for gas prices rising back to $3.87 per gallon, yet refuses to admit it. Bernanke placed the blame on the growing global and emerging market economies, and their strong demand for oil. He said that America's demand for oil is going down, which NIA believes is actually due to the U.S. dollar losing its purchasing power and Americans seeing their standard of living decline. Bernanke said there is nothing that he can do about rising oil and gas prices "without derailing growth entirely". The truth is, Bernanke already derailed growth entirely when he derailed the free market. It is impossible to see real economic growth when a government and central bank is interfering in every aspect of the economy and impeding the free market in every possible way. All nominal GDP growth in the U.S., along with growth in retail sales, is solely due to inflation. Even when the government adjusts GDP and retail sales growth to the rate of inflation, it is based off of the consumer price index, which NIA believes is currently understating price inflation by approximately 4%.

Although Bernanke denies he has the ability to reduce gas prices, he claims he can prevent "gas prices from passing into other prices and wages throughout the economy and creating a broader inflation which will be much more difficult to extinguish." Bernanke obviously doesn't want Americans to see higher wages because he believes it could lead to broader inflation, but NIA believes rising wages would be a good thing. Inflation hurts Americans most when the rate of inflation is far outpacing wage increases. The fact is, the U.S. is already experiencing broad inflation even without wage increases.

Bernanke's brand new favorite word as of late seems to be "transitory", which he used about a dozen times during his press conference. Despite what Bernanke says, NIA strongly believes that rising food and gas prices are not transitory. Bernanke likes the word "transitory" because he can use it to try and pretend that rising food and gas prices are only just a temporary phenomenon and that their current high levels aren't here to stay. Many Americans can remember the day 40 years ago when a can of Coca-Cola cost a dime and a Hershey chocolate bar cost a nickel, with a gallon of gas back then costing only thirty-five cents. Have rising food and gas prices over the past four decades been transitory?

NIA first predicted two years ago in its documentary 'Hyperinflation Nation', that rising food and gas prices would soon become the primary concern of all American citizens as a result of the Fed's dangerous and destructive monetary policies. Bernanke back then claimed that inflation would not be a problem and said that the U.S. risked deflation. If Bernanke has been so wrong about the inflation that Americans are faced with today, NIA doesn't see how anybody can possibly believe that Bernanke will be right and that current high food and gas prices aren't here to stay. In our opinion, the food and gas price inflation that Americans have experienced over the past 40 years, is likely to occur all over again during the next 4 years. NIA believes that 4 years from now, Americans will look back at the good old days of having cheap $4 a gallon gas.

The last thing the U.S. government wants is for the American public to realize that Bernanke is responsible for rising food and gas prices. If the public demanded to end the Federal Reserve, the government will no longer be able to spend recklessly knowing that the Fed will be there to monetize their deficit spending. In an attempt to make up excuses for rising gas prices and deflect attention away from the Fed, Congress has been pressuring the U.S. Attorney General to investigate the matter. Attorney General Eric Holder just announced the formation of the Oil & Gas Price Fraud Working Group. The stated purpose of this working group is to monitor the oil and gas markets for potential violations of criminal or civil laws to safeguard against unlawful consumer harm.

NIA considers this to be complete insanity. Any government interference in the oil markets will only drive oil prices up even higher. Oil prices are rising solely do to supply and demand. Demand is going through the roof because the Federal Reserve is creating a lot of inflation, and inflation always gravitates to the goods that Americans need the most to live and survive. Oil supplies are falling because President Obama has ordered U.S. troops to occupy Libya. In the past we at least made up excuses to invade countries like Iraq over oil by claiming they had weapons of mass destruction. Today, the U.S. government doesn't even bother. Obama campaigned as an anti-war President, saying he would bring our troops home from the middle-east. Instead, he has increased our middle-east troop levels, and the sheep who voted for him are showing absolutely no signs of outrage.

It is important to spread the word about NIA to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, if you want America to survive hyperinflation. Please tell everybody you know to become members of NIA for free immediately at: http://inflation.us

Anunnaki & Nibiru The Return - A PUFOIN Perspective

The PUFOIN Perspective provides an analysis of intriguing current and/or historical events. We endeavor to provide both supportive and discrediting points of view when available and allow the reader to judge for themselves on the credibility of the topic. Occasionally, we'll provide our own commentary, which is designed to provide the reader with an opportunity to consider other possibilities. It is understood that those visiting PUFOIN are here because of the very nature of the material being shared. Thus, that being said the reader is already somewhat biased to a particular viewpoint. Sharing this material with those who do not ascribe to this type of thinking can be enlightening for you and for them. It can lead to interesting discussions and also debates. We hope you enjoy our latest commentary.

Anunnaki & Nibiru - The Return
A PUFOIN Commentary
By John Jaeger

An ongoing interest and debate has been Planet X. This allusive planet has been linked to the myths of the Sumerian Tablets, which speak of the returning of Nibiru (a mythical planet said to visit our solar system once very 3600 years due to its elliptical orbit). Nibiru is said to be the home of our forefathers; the original creators of the Human race; the gods of the Old Testament. Is Nibiru real? The writings of the Sumerian Tablets as translated by Zachariah Sitchin and pre-date any known written history, seem to suggest that it is.

Many current day "seers" and "self-proclaimed emissaries of Alien Beings" preach about the coming events, which will include major Earth changes. I'm sure that even without a degree in Rocket Science, any of us can understand just how the arrival of a planetary sized object would impact the forces being applied against this planet, would have a major impact. Of late, we're seeing our weather patterns change; major earthquakes reaching 9.0; storm of the century - every other week (or so it would seem) and let's not forget the sudden increase in activity of volcano's.

The question of Alien existence is still merely a question. Through out the ages, proof has existed to support Alien interaction in our development and progress. Cave drawings; Ancient Hieroglyphics; mid-evil paintings - all show what we've come to identify as the stereotypical saucer or cigar shaped UFO's. We can't deny that these exist and seem to represent something extraordinary.

A study of the myths in the Bible also reveal many interesting discoveries. The issue can certainly be debated until we're all long gone but it would appear that the stories of the Bible, written around 200 BCE, are actually a re-telling of stories from much earlier on - thousands of years earlier! The Sumerian's documented the stories of the Bible in the third millennium BCE! Their stories offer some of the best accounts of our creation and the events of early Mesopotamia. Yet, our Religion-based society continues to propagate the rewriting of our history for its own means.

There is no secret that the canonized version of the Bible from Constantine's' day has left out many relative books. The Gnostics; Book of Thomas; etc., were not represented because they were either not available at the time OR they contradicted the message Constantine wished to deliver to solidify his rule as Emperor. If you compare the various Christian religions you'll find that different versions of the Bible are used. Some have incorporated the "found books" while others continue to ignore their existence and suggest that they are not legitimate.

Now, consider this. What "if" the events of the Bible are more-or-less true. What "if" the events in the Old and New Testaments really did happen pretty much along the lines we're told they did but... much earlier!

There is significant proof to date the Pyramids to around 11,000 BCE for their construction. Certainly, with our technology of today we could build such monuments to the precision of these great structures - but... what about back in 11,000 BCE? The Humans of the Bible were farmers and Shepard's. The technology didn't exist to create such structures. Now, look at the Maya and their Calendar. Their understanding of astronomy and astrology far exceeded their ability to understand the stars yet they provided us with a calendar, which has been exacting. The examples of technology exist through out our history yet scholars often refuse to consider this when putting together their thesis or journals. It isn't mainstream science, thus it would bring way too much attention and critique and essentially ruin their career. But why?

Anyone with a computer can research these facts on their own and come to their own conclusions. Anyone with common sense can objectively examine the facts and determine that "we're not in Kansas anymore". By exploring these facts, we change everything we've ever believed in. We start to question our faith. We have to because what we've been taught isn't what really happened. Most lies are based in truth at some point. Often, good intentions turn sour. Now, add thousands of years into the mix and you'll find an alarming trend of using Religion to control. Fearing God (yet God is good, right? He cares about us and our well-being, right?) and tossing around the Devil has kept Religious leaders in power and often carved the way for Kings to reach a status of divinity among his subjects.

The fact is, if you research you'll find that the events of the Bible just don't add up with the time these events are said to have occurred.

Next, one must consider that the stories of Jesus are a retelling of Pagan myth. Osiris was also a man-god who was born of a virgin and carried out miracles (which by the way closely parallel those of Jesus nearly word-for-word). If you consider that the Pagan's worshipped many gods and that this belief system dates back long before the Biblical times, the stories of the Sumerian Tablets start to take on a whole new meaning.

In the Sumerian Tablets, the story of Creation and the Garden of Eden are shared. The Great Flood is also a favorite written in the tablets. These stories aren't changed all that much when represented in the Bible - however, they are manipulated. The Sumerian Tablets tell of the Anunnaki; a race of beings from Nibiru who created Humans by taking the indigenous beings on Earth and splicing their own DNA with that of the Aliens. The Anunnaki were greatly advanced beings and created the great monuments found on the Earth; Moon; Mars and other solid planets/moons within our corner of the Universe.

The purpose for creating Humans is also written in the Tablets. Humans were created to be servants of the gods. Many would have called the early humans, slaves. We were used to mine precious minerals such as gold. Still to this day, gold is considered a highly sought after mineral. Researching the Sumerian tablets will also tell you reasons for this unique status of gold.

So, what about the Bible and the stories in the Bible? Are they fake? The answer to that will unfold over time, however it is most likely that these events were real at their core. Even the stories of Jesus, were real. They just didn't occur when we think they did. If you consider the speculative orbit of Nibiru and the suggested 3600 year cycle, we can begin to establish a time-line for these events. First we must be careful not to deviate from what has already been written in our earliest documents (the Sumerian Tablets). We can extrapolate based on this information but we must stay relatively true to the core or else our own references will be just as flawed as the Bible.

We know that the Pyramids were built around 11,000 BCE. That means the Anunnaki must have been already here around that time. Considering that the cycle of Nibiru is this 3600 year cycle, we must conclude that anyone left here was stuck here until the next cycle. We are told that the gods had long lives but it doesn't seem imaginable that their lives would last the full cycle of Nibiru. So, we must then factor in the length of time that Nibiru would be accessible from Earth during its orbit. It has been suggested that the planet would only be visible for a few months but the length of time that it would be accessible might be years if not hundreds of years. Any advanced culture capable of creating hybrids would be seen as gods to their creations. We have that technology today. We mix-breed animals to create animals with special traits; colors or behaviors. We mix-breed plants. We're on the edge of cloning. So, the idea isn't so crazy when you consider these things today vs. even 100 years or less, ago.

We must also then consider that there are other beings than just the Anunnaki roaming the Universe. But that is a discussion for another PUFOIN Perspective.

Now, taking in the orbit of Nibiru and the fact that there were and still may be, alien outposts on Mars and the Moon, we can begin to paint a picture of the events as described in the Bible. Many have questioned the "virgin birth". Why is this so difficult a concept to accept? We have the technology to impregnate a female who has never experienced intercourse. So, right away, the idea of a virgin birth has to be considered plausible based on our own level of technology, today.

If this birth were between an advanced being and a Human, the offspring might have some advanced abilities. Even if the offspring didn't, the ability of the "father" who IS an advanced being could give that impression should he intervene on behalf of the son. Actually, all of the events spoken of about Osiris/Jesus persona could actually be factual. To the people of the time, simple things we take for granted today would seem like miracles.

The true problem rests with our version of the Bible. We singularize the gods. One must consider though that the "god" of the Old Testament isn't the same god of the New Testament. A simple review of the Bible will help to identify this. One god ruled with an iron fist. The other, with mercy and compassion. There is no doubt that a power struggle would occur between the gods. If we are indeed offspring of these beings, then we are the best evidence of this. Thus, it would make sense that there would be "groups" of gods who would have told their servants to honor no other god but himself. It makes sense that this would be the cause for suddenly making the Pagan plurality of gods into the Jewish and Christian singularity of God.

The study of the Pagan beliefs is truly fascinating. It must be studied with an open-mind because the idea of these deities is so foreign to the common belief system it becomes difficult to absorb.

Next we must consider the myths, which speak of the return of Jesus. Now, if you take into context the alien equation, the idea of a returning god is not so far-fetched. If the gods are truly on this 3600 year cycle, it would make sense that they've left and will return. It is also plausible that during this time we've had interaction with other alien beings who do not support the Anunnaki. The question of whether the Anunnaki are friend or foe can be debated. If we were created to be subjects of the gods, it would make sense that we wouldn't wish to be their slaves when they return. The idea of other aliens interacting within our society may be to provide us with advancements so that our awareness level would be high enough to understand the threat and our technology would be advanced enough to provide us with a means of defense.

The question of time-travel must also be called into the equation because of the suggestion of future events. Interestingly, the Bible is an excellent source of what is to come. Unfortunately, we don't often understand this until the events have come to pass. Could the Anunnaki have the ability to travel through time? Well, while they "could" it seems unlikely because if that were the case, they'd be able to know about our advancements. It seems much more likely that other alien beings are more advanced than the Anunnaki and shared these future events. These aliens were the "angels" who came to Daniel and John. They planted the seed of warning in an effort to help guide us along a path, which would allow us to advance in our understanding; our awareness of our place in the Universe and in our technology. We advance quickly when we use cooperation. The Bible prophecies speak of this oneness within our nature and the need for us to get along and work together. Obviously, these prophets knew that the only way for us to advance in the time allotted was to get us to "play nicely" with one another. How better to do this than to write a code of ethics (of sorts) for us to live by.

So, what if all of this speculation is true? What if we were created to be slaves? What if we are waiting for the return of the gods? What next? When?

Well, many of the Native American prophecies tend to point to the year 2012. The Mayan calendar ends in 2012. The Hopi Prophecy Rock points to a certain path we must travel, etc. The Inca prophecies also point to around 2012. They speak of the coming of the next density of existence. We've been able to extrapolate that this will be a time of ascension. This ascension isn't too dissimilar to the "catching up" or the "rapture" as spoken of in the Bible. Those who've become spiritually awakened (aware of their place in the Universe) will ascend into the next plain of existence. Those who are still bound by the ways of the creators and the materialistic world will be left to see the return of the Anunnaki (the end of their 3600 year cycle). These people will see great changes in the Earth because of the influence of Nibiru. They will also see great battles between the Anunnaki and the Humans of Earth. The prediction of 1000 years of peace may only come about at the hands of the benevolent alien beings currently helping us to advance our level of technology.

It would make sense that we will see huge advancements over the next few years as we approach this 2012 deadline. It would also make sense to consider that anytime from now through 2012 that the Anunnaki may be close enough to actually travel in ships to Earth in limited numbers. It would make sense for them to assume that not much has changed since their previous visit. To those who come in advance of their planet, their discoveries may be quite unique. It may even be an Anunnaki who is the "anti-Christ". It would make sense that the Anunnaki would choose the region of former Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) for their return. The predictions speak of the anti-Christ coming from this region and gaining power in the European Union. It speaks of nations coming against Israel.

On a side note, it adds a new light to why the United States and its allies chose to attack Iraq at this time in our history. Are they perhaps preparing for the return of the Anunnaki?

Our nations are working on space based initiatives for planetary defense. Ronald Reagan spoke of threats from outside of this world in one of his speeches. He was the first to suggest a space based missile system (Star Wars). It would seem that our Government's are already interacting with Aliens. Look at the advancement in our technology over the past 100 years. Are we being prepped for Armageddon?

There will be many view points on similar topics. There will be many who agree and many who disagree. In the end, only the reader can choose to explore for his/herself or continue to stand true to his/her faith and trust in the authority of their Church. It would be sad for people to not explore the role of Religion in controlling the population. It would be sad for people to not explore the way the various Churches have changed their doctrine to stay modern with the times. The RC Church said that the Earth was the center of the Universe and threatened early scientists who offered proof of the contrary. The RC Church now admits that Evolution is more than just a theory and accepts it as a more plausible means than Intelligent Design - yet, in the scenario explained above, the Intelligent Design is actually a fact!! How can anyone stand true to Religion when it continues to change its doctrine? If Religion were unyielding and thus supported by the science, that fortitude to stay true to Religion would be understandable. Unfortunately, science and Religion do not stand together and the only thing bending is Religion.

As spiritual people, we need to have a faith system. We rely upon our faith to help us through tough times. We pray to God to help us. What if the being that is helping us isn't the God we're praying to but rather, a galactic consciousness intervening on our behalf? What if it is simply coincidence? Again, the theories can abound but the facts can not so easily be dismissed by those who are enlightened and want to know more.

Are we in the end-times? That is merely a matter of personal perception. The Earth isn't going to end in 2012 and neither is life. If the Anunnaki are an advanced race and if they return in 2012 en masse, civilization as we know it may change forever. Look at the events of the past and the cycle of these events. It is pretty likely that the fall of the advanced civilizations will in most cases correlate with the cycle of the Anunnaki. Look at Egypt; Atlantis and other great early cultures. What happened to them? Where did they go? Were they becoming too advanced and a threat to the Annunaki?

I Stole this comment from @zerohedge - #Martial #Law

I stole this from one of those brilliant zerohedge commenters.. Click the link for the post..

I liked it because I find this particular subject to be very fascinating.. Numbers are truly cool things.. If only one half of 1% of the American citizenry get totally FED up and decide to do something about it you're talking about 1.5 MILLION pissed off Americans..

The question I have is how can the military and police maintain martial law in America for an extended period of time during an economic collapse or crisis? Mathematically it is impossible i will explain. I wrote this months ago in response to CD's article if the military would shoot American cititzens.

If there is a major crisis that sends the entire country into chaos, it would highly unlikely that the U.S. military will be able to enforce a lock-down of the entire nation.

Even if the military manages to acquire all 1.5 million reserves and utilize 1 million of it's total 1.5 million personnel in the Navy, Army, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard, it would struggle to control 308-310 million citizens in a land mass of 9,161,966 sq km.

You can confirm these numbers by looking at the U.S. Census or CIA World fact book.

Even this scenario is incredibly optimistic, because it assumes that 100% of the national guard and Army reserves will show up when the dollar has crash and they're worried about their families. The 1.5 million number doesn't even factor in the fact that many of these people are overseas fighting (in Iraq and Afghanistan) and serving on one of the 700 military bases in 130 foreign countries. So if the dollar collapses and the nation erupts into chaos, will the military be able to ship them home quick enough? I doubt. Now many have said "Well what about the fusion centers and local and state police?"



First of all, American law enforcement numbers are not as strong as some of you think. According to the BLS (bureau of Labor Statistics), there were only 883,600 law enforcement personnel in 2008. And that was before the financial collapse and subsequent layoffs in local departments across the nation. The number included detectives, managers, police and sheriff's patrol officers.

So when you add the 2,500,000 soldiers and the 883,000 law enforcement, you have a force of 3.3 million agents. This is less than one percent of America's highly-armed population. Most of these agents will be working logistics and support for handling prisoners, transportation, intelligence and supply. But this isn't even the biggest problem.

The police are used to dealing with people who are afraid of them and have something to lose. In a collapse scenario, the rioters will lack both characteristics. And the military will be poorly suited to police a populace that is desperation for resources. If the soldiers became violent against the population, they could divide the armed forces and spark a civil war. Moreover, Iraq and Afghanistan has shown us that the U.S. military is not invisible and that guerrilla warfare tactics can be deployed successfully against a high-tech army. It would be very difficult for the U.S. military to successfully implement martial law throughout the entire country at any given time. This would mean that they would have to secure hundred of thousands of neighborhoods, while securing all major airports, power stations, communication towers, water facilities, nuclear power plants, military bases, food distribution center, grocery stores, government official buildings and highways while keeping everyone in their homes after 6pm.

Bringing in foreign troops would problematic, because if the U.S. is in a panic, wouldn't the other countries that are so heavily tied to America also have their own problems. Plus, we know how well foreign occupations went in Afghanistan, Vietnam and Iraq.

In conclusion, a military lock-down of the entire country at any given time would be impossible with the assistance of foreign troops. Adding foreign troops would increase the manpower, but severely damage the credibility of the force. Such a situation would encourage more violence against the martial law force. The U.S. government may attempt to lock the country down, but it would end in failure and possibility set the stage for a civil war. Many people assume that the population's current malaise will mean little resistance to martial law, but they fail to understand human nature. If there is a crisis situation, your biggest danger maybe the people around you.

The Economic Collapse
April 25, 2011

The U.S. economy is dying and we are heading for the next Great Depression. The talking heads in the mainstream media love to spin the economic numbers around and around and they love to make it sound like the economy is improving, but the truth is that it doesn’t take a genius to see what is happening to the U.S. economic system. All over the nation many of our greatest cities are being slowly but surely transformed into post-apocalyptic wastelands. All over the mid-Atlantic, all along the Gulf coast, all throughout the “rust belt” and all over the entire state of California cities that once had incredibly vibrant economies are being turned into rotting, post-industrial hellholes. In many U.S. cities, the “real” rate of unemployment is over 30 percent. There are some communities that will start depressing you almost the moment that you drive into them. It is almost as if all of the hope has been sucked right out of those communities. If you live in one of those American hellholes you know what I am talking about. Sadly, it is not just a few cities that are becoming hellholes. This is happening in the east, in the west, in the north and in the south. America is literally being transformed right in front of our eyes.

If you still live in an area of the United States that is prosperous, do not mock the cities that you are about to read about. The cold, hard reality of the matter is that economic decline and economic despair are spreading rapidly and they will come to your area soon enough. Right now we are still talking about “American hellholes”, but if the long-term economic trends that are destroying this nation are not turned around eventually we will just be talking about one gigantic “American hellhole”. In the end, no area of the country will completely escape the economic hell that is coming.

Let’s take a closer look at what is currently happening in some of the worst areas of the country….

Obama orders probe of rising gas prices - I AM your alternative News source!

---
I have grabbed a few "excerpts" from this AP story that I wish to talk about a little.. A link to the full story is provided at the bottom of this post..
---

LOS ANGELES (AP) — President Barack Obama said Thursday that the Justice Department will try to "root out" cases of fraud or manipulation in oil markets, even as Attorney General Eric Holder suggested a variety of legal reasons may be behind gasoline's surge to $4 a gallon.

"We are going to make sure that no one is taking advantage of the American people for their own short-term gain," Obama said at a town-hall style meeting at a renewable energy plant in Reno, Nev.

"root out" cases of fraud or manipulation in oil markets?!

"We are going to make sure that no one is taking advantage of the American people for their own short-term gain,"?!

WTF?!

Here is some "alternative news" for you and I'm more than happy to bring it to your attention!

"But the true perpetrator of higher oil prices, the Federal Reserve, stands right in front of us, the smoking gun its easy money policies. As I wrote last November, what is making today’s higher oil and gasoline prices inevitable is the debasement of the dollar."

Angry Over Oil Price? Demand A Change In Fed Policy

Get f'ing real obama!

Federal Reserve Causes Middle East Unrest! Massive Worldwide Famine Caused by QE! [Video]

So WHERE is this so called manipulation? And exactly WHO is it that is taking advantage of not only American citizens but all citizens of the world?! The Federal Reserve Bank!
---

Obama, decrying such levels as yet another hardship "at a time when things were already pretty tough," said Holder was forming the Financial Fraud Enforcement Working Group.

---
AND the FIRST place they need to LOOK for FRAUD and MANIPULATION is AT the Federal Reserve Bank!
---

The task force will focus some of its investigation on "the role of traders and speculators" in the oil-price surge, Obama said, and will include several Cabinet department officials, federal regulators and the National Association of Attorneys General.

---
"the role of traders and speculators" in the oil-price surge?! People you MUST understand that traders are no different from anyone else with a f'ing JOB!

Speculators BASE their trades in commodities on the POLICIES of the United States government and the Federal Reserve Bank!
---

In Washington, Holder said he would press ahead with the investigation, even though he did not cite any current evidence of intentional manipulation of oil and gas prices or fraud.

---

He promised to "be vigilant in monitoring the oil and gas markets for any wrongdoing so that consumers can be confident they are not paying higher prices as a result of illegal activity."

---

---
HERE IS your "manipulation of oil and gas prices AND fraud AND ILLEGAL ACTIVITY"!

Debasing the Dollar
---

There's not much Obama can do to affect the price of gasoline in short term, something he acknowledged in his remarks. Gas prices have risen steadily as a result of tensions in the Middle East and northern Africa and rising demand from China and other emerging economies.

Given that no evidence has yet surfaced of actual fraud or price manipulation in oil markets, Obama's remarks appeared, at least in part, as more of an attempt to assuage public anger over rising gas prices.

Other presidents have also launched similar inquiries at times of rising oil prices and widespread public suspicions of market manipulation by the oil industry or by speculators.

Higher oil prices?

"tensions in the Middle East and northern Africa and rising demand from China and other emerging economies"

"Given that no evidence has yet surfaced of actual fraud or price manipulation in oil markets"

Talk about the corporate OWNED media COVERING up a story! Not ONE mention here of the Federal Reserve Bank LED by Helicopter Ben Bernanke!

Is the Federal Reserve Bank CREATING an excuse for QE3?
---

In an Associated Press-Gfk poll last month, 51 percent of adults said they thought recent increases in gas prices were due to "oil companies that want to boost profits" rather than changes in the global oil market. Nine percent said higher prices stemmed from a combination of both, 37 percent from changes in the market.

Obama: don't jump to conclusion on Fort Hood shooting

(Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama urged Americans on Friday not to jump to conclusions on the motive behind the mass shooting at the sprawling Fort Hood army base in Texas.

"We don't know all the answers yet and I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts," he said.

Obama also said he had met on Friday with officials including FBI Director Robert Mueller.

No matter the "crisis" the same bullshit Standard Operating Procedure is used by our government.. Always..

Whether it is the economic "crisis" / economy, TARP, banks, unemployment, foreclosures, war, oil spill, WikiLeaks, Japan, nuclear disaster, national debt / deficit, immigration, abortion, gay "rights", civil "rights", animal "rights", children's "rights", entitlements the "technique" is to ignore, to marginalize, to push back in time. To leak news ever so slowly to the public over a very long period of time..

Justice delayed is justice avoided it seems..

The corporate owned, complicit media gleefully play along quoting "expert" after "expert" on both sides of every story to confuse the issue, whatever it might be.

So why IS the game "played" this way?

In a word.. Politics..

It seems to me that our society / culture has become nothing more than one rather large, unruly political game. A game in which we, the people, are merely pawns to be manipulated by political parties using the "issues" of the day..

Until we, the people, change this we will be forever doomed to the status quo, political "gamesmanship", political "drama", political "theater".

And nothing will change at all..

Unemployed? Broke? HowTo: Execute your own Ponzi Scheme!

---
Please note that I Gregory Phillips am NOT a registered financial adviser nor do I offer legal advice. Please see disclaimer at the bottom of blog.
---

Seeing as how ponzi scheme's seem to be all the rage these days with no repercussions at all why shouldn't individual American citizens execute their own ponzi plans?

I mean since the Federal Reserve Bank is even involved in a ponzi scheme right before everyone's eyes, with the blessing of the United States government, why is it not also a good enough plan for the many struggling American families in our debt based ponzi scheme driven economy?

How to legally employ your own ponzi scheme in these toughest of economic times:

If you find yourself unemployed and seemingly less and less likely to be able to find a job and are sincerely worried about the welfare of yourself and your family then just do what the United States government does..

Borrow money that you KNOW you will NEVER be able to repay, forever..

The elite bankers attempt to use shame to keep consumers in line even to the point of sacrificing the well being of their own family to pay back loans of completely worthless fiat currency (paper backed by.. more paper).

shame (shm)
n.
1.
a. A painful emotion caused by a strong sense of guilt, embarrassment, unworthiness, or disgrace.
b. Capacity for such a feeling: Have you no shame?
2. One that brings dishonor, disgrace, or condemnation.
3. A condition of disgrace or dishonor; ignominy.
4. A great disappointment.

Shame these days is not nearly as in vogue as it once was in America anyway.. So just forget that.. It's really meaningless. I mean doing what I am about to suggest will ruin your credit.. But most likely if you find yourself in a position to consider it then your credit is likely already ruined.. Plus.. isn't it credit that got you into this mess in the first place? Spending money you didn't have for things you didn't need?

So I'm merely suggesting you instead use borrowed money for the things you do need.. Food, utilities, clothing, whatever it might be..

Whether you will be able to pay back this money is of little concern as we can see in the upcoming vote to raise of the United States debt limit by congress in the near future..

Our own uncle, Sam, is currently borrowing 40% of every single dollar they spend so I fail to see why YOU should feel ashamed to do the same thing..

The ponzi trick is to obtain as much NEW credit as you possibly can NOW. Combine this with any existing credit you have to allow yourself as large a credit line as is possible. The interest rate charged is of no concern at all.. In fact, the higher the interest is the faster you will be able to accumulate consumer debt and hence the faster you can file for bankruptcy to get out from under everything you, so-called, owe.

Then just use this credit to support yourself and your family.. Hell go on a well deserved relaxing vacation if you like.. Why not?

You can escalate [ponzi] this borrowing as long as possible to buy the things you need just as if you had real money (even though having real money isn't real money if it is of the paper variety.. Only tangible [real] assets have real value. Gold, silver, land, food, guns, etc).

Once the bankers cut off your credit (and they eventually WILL do so) just use the accumulated debt to file for bankruptcy (again no shame, GM did it, AIG did it, the banks did it, Fannie and Freddie did it, etc).

Just make SURE when you do file for bankruptcy that you file ONLY chapter 7 and NOT chapter 13.. Bankruptcy laws were changed, by congress, in 2005 to make filing more difficult in an attempt to help the banks recoup as much money as possible from the debt slaves they had driven to ruin.

Bankruptcy will dissolve, FREE you from, the great majority of your accumulated debt with the exception of taxes and the student loan debt trap..

So, fight back! Enjoy yourself! Just live like the United States government, the Federal Reserve Bank and major corporations do!

Central Banks Inflate Food Prices

on February 6, 2011 in Economics

Soaring food prices are driving protests by desperate people in Tunisia, Egypt, and elsewhere. Predatory commodity futures speculators and mega-banks blew up this most recent price bubble; and people fearful of currency inflation cached food supplies, resulting in shortages.

This left average and poor people sqeezed between inflationary devaluation of currencies (loss of purchasing power), and prices spiraling up. The video below shows Bernanke again refusing to take any responsibility for the latest price bubble hitting world economies hard. But analyst Bill Fleckenstein gives details of government and central bank collusion with financial predators at the expense of everyone else. He tells why centralized control is breaking down world wide.

A quick look at $EURUSD daily

---
Chart shows what I was watching on EURUSD daily.. Even though I was quite a bit early on the trade..

You can see on the chart I use a standard bollinger band of 2 standard deviations plus a 2nd BB set at 3 standard deviations. Once price is pushed away from stressing 3 standard deviations it tends to correct.

Also 13 EMA can be a good trend indicator and, depending on risk appetite, can be a good entry area as support / resistance.

Trading the tunnel with Equities on the Daily

---

As I'm sure some of you know I have been working with something of my own version of the tunnel trading system in FX for a little while now.. After seeing the potential for how well it works I became interested in how well it might, or might not, do with equities..

Briefly for anyone who may not know, this system is based on a "tunnel" formed by two EMAs (exponential Moving Averages) the settings for these are 144 and 169 and they form the actual tunnel. I also employ a 13 EMA as a filter and the charts that I will show here also have standard bollinger bands on.

I have actually made 13 equity trades based on these chart settings 7 wins and 3 losses with 3 currently open trades (one symbol was traded twice). But I do not intend to focus much on my actual trades as I took fairly quick, and hence small, profits. This is because I am just now looking into how well this system works, or does not, with equities.

However as a matter of full disclosure here are the trades with entry and exit price..

PM 56.26 - 56.78
SAI 16.38 - 16.94
MO 24.13 - 25.50
EIX 36.07 - 35.92
PCG 46.70 - 45.53
CNP 15.81 - 16.06
FE 37.94 - 37.33
SWY 21.83 - 22.85
TIE 18.68 -
EIX 37.02 - 37.90
RIG 80.35 -
LLY 35.21 - 36.01
BBT 27.57 -

The general idea of trading this is if price is above the tunnel and closes above the 13 EMA then buy. Pretty simple huh?

If price reverses and closes below the tunnel it's best to take the loss and move on to the next trade. Though often price will chop back and forth above and below the tunnel. It remains a valid trade entry as long the two conditions above remain valid. As long as price remains above the 13 EMA one can remain long. A close below is a danger signal that should be taken seriously.

And here are the charts.. I'll let them speak for themselves

Are College [Student] Loans the Next Bubble?

---
You may click here for the original post if you prefer
---



By Greg Romey:

There is a common phrase in the entertainment industry that describes when a show has abandoned its core premise and introduced the absurd to revive viewer interest. It is called “Jumping the Shark.” I believe this phrase can be representative of business, as well. Here is my definition of when business has jumped the shark: the point where an industry has reached the markets whose needs were not being met and, to maintain growth, uses methods to create artificial demand.

This has been the case with for-profit secondary education. Many articles have been written about the problems associated with the for-profit model (article1, article2) so there is no need to regurgitate information that has been so well documented. What is important to analyze is this transition from an industry filling a need within a society to one that preys upon it.

The transition to that point does not occur abruptly as when a car runs out of gas or traffic light changes color. It is quite subtle but nonetheless very obvious when looked at from a longer timeframe. It results when the marketing and sales approach is no longer focused on attracting people who qualify as the initial target market. In this case, cuts to the community college system has left many would be students in the lurch and provided a market opportunity to for-profit schools (article, video) . With the influx of new schools and rapid growth of established for-profit institutions, like University of Phoenix, the market has been met … and then some.

Since the initial growth phase is usually quite profitable and attracts investment, continued expansion needs to be maintained for stockholders. The inevitable question is how can profits continue when a market is saturated? It seems that the next step is to approach fringe markets that were never the target market. How about we find a way to put someone with a limited income into a house … or better yet, provide them with a college education that creates debt that never goes away. Who cares if they get foreclosed on or fail to obtain a degree because they are not prepared for college? After all, I got mine.

It is quite easy to prey on the fringe market. These services are generally marketed to include messages about wealth and prosperity – a place the fringe market strives to get to. You too can own a home and become part of the middle class! Get an education that will propel you to a high paying career, for it is the only thing standing in the way of buying all of the goods you see on TV! The feeling of inferiority based on income level is so pervasive that it does not take much marketing savvy to generate interest.

So how do you wring out a sponge that is barely wet? You dip it in the governmental trough until it is fully saturated. You can qualify for a student loan, just fill out these papers and here are some tips on increasing your approval chances. Sound familiar?

The question before us as a society is, do we want this type of capitalism? We have benefited immensely from a capitalistic system that rewards companies for meeting market demands and people who work hard. Yet our economy has evolved and created a chasm between rich and poor, hollowing out the middle class. Money is power and with it comes governmental influence that provides an advantage to corporations and hinders any challenges to the status quo. The consumer base has been depleted, the wells have run dry and interesting new processes have been introduced, like credit default swaps and easy access to college loans, to siphon out the remaining droplets of cash.

The shark has jumped out of the water and we are running for the hills. Maybe we will find the housing market over there also.

Obviously the #government has made all their #plans.. Have you?

Give it a read to help understand what our future may hold.. It's all laid out and legal it seems so "they" (United States government) certainly seem to be aware that things could go south in a hurry and are very well prepared for just such an occurrence.. The "nuts and bolts" are contained in Operation Garden Plot / CONPLAN 2502 (Civil Disturbance Operations)

You can find some background on these plans in The Armageddon Plan on Common Dreams.org

Reason Magazine Interviews Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes

---
IMHO we should ALL support the Oath Keepers - Conservatives, Liberals and everyone else in America
---

When you run down the list of issues the Oath Keepers are worried about, it reads a lot like a bill of particulars from the American Civil Liberties Union. The Oath Keepers don't like warrantless searches. They're upset that the executive branch has claimed the power to classify American citizens as enemy combatants, detain them indefinitely, and try them before military tribunals. They worry that a large-scale terrorist attack similar to 9/11 could lead to the mass detention of Arabs or Muslims, just as Japanese Americans were detained during World War II. They worry about crackdowns on political speech, protest, and freedom of assembly. They are concerned about the Army 3rd Infantry's 1st Brigade Combat Team, a military unit that is training to deploy domestically in response to terrorist attacks or other national emergencies. And yet the group is a frequent target of the left.

Oath Keepers was founded in 2009 by Stewart Rhodes, a Yale Law School graduate and a former staffer for Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas). Rhodes, 44, considers himself a constitutionalist and a libertarian. His organization's mission: to persuade America's soldiers and cops to refuse to carry out orders that violate the Constitution. On its website, Oath Keepers lists 10 orders its members will always refuse, including commands to conduct warrantless searches, to disarm the public, blockade an American city, or do anything that infringes "on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances." According to Rhodes, the group has about 30,000 dues-paying members.

Societal Issues

I want to take a few minutes today to talk about cable companies.. However, what I talk about in this post isn't at all ONLY about cable companies. You can find identical behavior in virtually ALL sectors of the economy.. In my own opinion this lack of morality, honesty, integrity is one of the largest problems facing the United States economy and indeed the economies of the entire world..

But on to the cable company..

We have had cable TV for decades.. Many years ago we signed up for a "bundle package".. When/if you purchased 3 separate "services" from the cable company you received a so-called "discount".

So we took the bait and signed up for basic cable, like 62 channels of mostly worthless crap, internet service and something called the "digital cable package".

At any rate years went by and cable TV became more and more worthless as far as enlightenment goes.. While I did and do like the "digital cable" portion of our "contract" with the cable company we realized that of the many "extra" channels it offers (most of which are counted as "channels" even though they are music that doesn't even include video) there were/are a few channels that I appreciated.. Including History International, I used to watch the Military Channel fairly often but not so much anymore, the Science channel has some good programming and I sometime enjoy National Geographic..

But we found ourselves in something of a "cost cutting" mode a few years back.. An effort to simplify our lives to a degree and cut back more to what we needed vs what we wanted..

So one thing that stuck out, to me, was the digital portion of our cable bill.. The "bundle pricing" on three "services" is billed at $30.00 per month per service.. Or $90.00 a month. Plus taxes and fees it comes to about $110.00 a month for TV and internet connection..

So my bright idea was to drop the, seemingly overpriced, "digital" portion of the package. While it contained a few channels we enjoyed it didn't seem to have enough "value" to justify the $30.00 a month expense.

To make a long story short we called the cable company and checked on the impact of dropping the "digital" portion of the package.. And this is the part that really bugs me.. Though we are, purportedly, PAYING $30.00 a month for the privelege of having the digital portion dropping it would lower our monthly cable bill by a whopping $5.00!

So we PAY $30.00 to get it OR we PAY $25.00 NOT to get it!

Also we got the cable internet because it was the fastest connection available and I like/need/want that..

Well.. somewhere along the line that has changed without my knowledge.. For a little while we had the slowest internet connection because the cable company came out with faster connections than ours.. At the time I discovered that they then had 3 speeds.. Slow, faster and fastest.. $30.00, $40.00 and $50.00.. I'm not sure how many they have now.. I should check for this post but I'm not doing it.. I do know for a fact that they have an even slower connection than mine available now for like $20.00 a month which also has limited time allowed on-line.

This infuriates me..

There was a time that companies strived to offer their customers the VERY BEST they had to offer at a fair price..

Now days it seems they want to break their offerings down into multiple "levels" in order to take advantage of the tremendous income inequality that exists in the United States of America..

Corporations seek to use envy, pride, lust, any and every human emotion they possibly can to "drive sales", "drive profits".

This splits society itself into classes of NOT the haves and have nots.. But the "have the mosts", the "have almost but not quite as much as the mosts", the "sort of middle of the road have some expendable cash available", the "living hand to mouth each paycheck", and the "living strictly on credit and not much else because we have no money".

When there was integrity, honesty and morality in business corporations felt it their responsibility to provide to the purchasing public the very best product they had at a competitive price.

In my opinion that model left us long ago..

Seems instead that everything in business now days is more like "Bait and Switch".

And, as I said in the beginning of this post, the cable company is used here merely as an easy and convenient example as far as what passes for so-called "business" in this country.

In my opinion at some point in the evolution of capitalism providing the public with the BEST products available at the lowest, most competitive price possible, was replaced with greed and a pure unadulterated lust for profits..

Witness sub-prime loans in the housing market.. auto loans, payday loans, rent to own, etc..

And not only that..

Every corporation in existence, that I know of, uses teams of lawyers to draw up extremely complex consumer contracts that seek to deny as many rights from the customer as legally possible while at the same time granting the corporation the power to do anything they decide to do with virtually NO consumer recourse at all!

Insurance companies, cell phone companies, cable and satellite providers, credit card issuers.. You name it they ALL do it.. It's ALL plain to see in their own (unfathomable) fine print.. We (the corporation) have the legal right to screw you and rob you blind while YOU have absolutely no recourse at all.. (<-- fine print summed up)

When did this happen? And how do we reverse its harmful, detrimental effects?

Very simply by NOT participating! By NOT buying! By NOT agreeing to horribly biased fine print!

Thanks for your time..

Oh my God! You just don't understand do you?!

Tool is representative of an alien race, of angels, of God himself! As is Pink Floyd! Many others as well. Likely Zeta! It's as plain as the nose on your face!

They live among us! They have been talking to us, communicating, for a very long time. All we have to do is LISTEN!

These are the end times The entire world practically lies in ruins now! Look around for crying out loud!

Read, learn, understand..

Watch this video a thousand times if you must.. it contains all there is to know.. The entire history and future of mankind lies between it's notes.

Lyrics matter..

Or.. then again.. Perhaps it's merely a good excuse to post some music by one of my very favorite bands of all time.. Tool. You be the judge ;)

Enoch Book of The Watchers | Taboo Bible?

---
I know this is a long post.. sorry.. But it's AMAZING!

At any rate *I* found it to be an amazing read..

It touches on many of the things that interest/bother me..

In it appear to be many secrets not revealed in any church I have ever visited..

For quite some time I have felt as if angels/aliens may still reside among men to this day hiding in plain site as oddities among us. One area in which I think this may be very likely is in music.. People like the members of Pink Floyd or the likes of Marilyn Manson or even Ozzy Osbourn and many others could be aliens/angels living among men. Mostly ignored of their seeming oddities..

This text seems to be supportive of that idea as it points to music as being an evil gifted to men by fallen angels/aliens and having the power to corrupt the souls of men.

It also speaks plainly about the ancient interactions between angels/aliens and mankind where mankind is taught many things and given much wisdom. This is presented as angels teaching mankind many sins through the disbursement of heavenly knowledge.

So did aliens/angels teach us these things long ago?

It also speaks plainly about fallen angels/aliens having sex with 'the daughters of men' for their own lustful gratification.. As well as the creation of a race of giants upon the earth who were all eventually destroyed.

And it speaks of the end times.. the end of mankind..

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Book of Enoch book 1 annotated and linked with images

Book of Enoch book 1b
Book of Enoch book 1c
Book of Enoch book 2

Chapter 1
1 The words of the blessing of Enoch, wherewith he blessed the elect and righteous, who will be

2 living in the day of tribulation, when all the wicked and godless are to be removed.

And he took up his parable and said -
Enoch a righteous man, whose eyes were opened by God,

saw the vision of the Holy One in the heavens, which the angels showed me, and from them I heard everything, and from them I understood as I saw,
..........but not for this generation, but for a remote one which is for to come.

3 Concerning the elect I said, and took up my parable concerning them:
..........The Holy Great One will come forth from His dwelling,

4 And the eternal God will tread upon the earth, (even) on Mount Sinai,
..........[And appear from His camp]
..........And appear in the strength of His might from the heaven of heavens.

5 And all shall be smitten with fear
..........And the Watchers shall quake,
..........And great fear and trembling shall seize them unto the ends of the earth.

6 And the high mountains shall be shaken,
..........And the high hills shall be made low,
..........And shall melt like wax before the flame

7 And the earth shall be wholly rent in sunder,
..........And all that is upon the earth shall perish,
..........And there shall be a judgement upon all (men).

8 But with the righteous He will make peace.

And will protect the elect,
And mercy shall be upon them.
And they shall all belong to God,
And they shall be prospered,
And they shall all be blessed.
And He will help them all,
And light shall appear unto them,
And He will make peace with them'.

9 And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of His holy ones

To execute judgement upon all,
And to destroy all the ungodly:
And to convict all flesh
Of all the works of their ungodliness which they have ungodly committed,
And of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.

Chapter 2
1 Observe ye everything that takes place in the heaven,
..........how they do not change their orbits, and the luminaries which are in the heaven,
..........how they all rise and set in order each in its season, and

2 transgress not against their appointed order. Behold ye the earth, and give heed to the things which take place upon it from first to last, how steadfast they are, how none of the things upon earth

3 change, but all the works of God appear to you. Behold the summer and the winter, how the whole earth is filled with water, and clouds and dew and rain lie upon it.

Chapter 3

1 Observe and see how (in the winter) all the trees seem as though they had withered and shed all their leaves, except fourteen trees, which do not lose their foliage but retain the old foliage from two to three years till the new comes.

Chapter 4

1 And again, observe ye the days of summer how the sun is above the earth over against it. And you seek shade and shelter by reason of the heat of the sun, and the earth also burns with growing heat, and so you cannot tread on the earth, or on a rock by reason of its heat.

Chapter 5

1 Observe ye how the trees cover themselves with green leaves and bear fruit: wherefore give ye heed and know with regard to all His works, and recognize how He that liveth for ever hath made them so.

2 and all His works go on thus from year to year for ever, and all the tasks which they accomplish for Him, and their tasks change not, but according as God hath ordained so is it done.

3 And behold how the sea and the rivers in like manner accomplish and change not their tasks from His commandments'.

4 But ye -ye have not been steadfast, nor done the commandments of the Lord,
..........But ye have turned away and spoken proud and hard words
..........With your impure mouths against His greatness.
..........Oh, ye hard-hearted, ye shall find no peace.

5 Therefore shall ye execrate your days, Enoch 7:1,
..........And the years of your life shall perish,
..........And the years of your destruction shall be multiplied in eternal execration,
..........And ye shall find no mercy.
6a In those days ye shall make your names an eternal execration unto all the righteous,
6b And by you shall all who curse, curse,

And all the sinners and godless shall imprecate by you,

6c And for you the godless there shall be a curse.
6d And all the . . . shall rejoice,
6e And there shall be forgiveness of sins,
6f And every mercy and peace and forbearance:
6g There shall be salvation unto them, a goodly light.6h And for all of you sinners there shall be no salvation,
6i But on you all shall abide a curse.

7a But for the elect there shall be light and joy and peace,
7b And they shall inherit the earth.
8 And then there shall be bestowed upon the elect wisdom,

And they shall all live and never again sin,
Either through ungodliness or through pride:
But they who are wise shall be humble.

9 And they shall not again transgress,

Nor shall they sin all the days of their life,
Nor shall they die of (the divine) anger or wrath,
But they shall complete the number of the days of their life.
And their lives shall be increased in peace,
And the years of their joy shall be multiplied,
In eternal gladness and peace,
All the days of their life.

Chapter 6 Jubilees 5

1 And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters.

2 And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men

3 and beget us children.' And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not

4 indeed agree to do this deed, and

I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.' And they all answered him and said:
'Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations
5 not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.' Then sware they all together and bound themselves
6 by mutual imprecations upon it.

And they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn
See The Book of Giants.
See the story of Genun: the Jubal story

7 and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. And these are the names of their leaders: Samlazaz, their leader, Araklba, Rameel, Kokablel, Tamlel, Ramlel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Baraqijal,

8 Asael, Armaros, Batarel, Ananel, Zaqlel, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Jomjael, Sariel. These are their chiefs of tens.

Chapter 7

1 And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself one,
and they began to go in unto them and to defile themselves with them, and they taught them charms
2 and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants. And they
3 became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: Who consumed
4 all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against
5 them and devoured mankind. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and
6 fish, and to devour one another's flesh, and drink the blood. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones.

On a parchment fragment 4Q201(En ara) copied ca. 200-150 B.C.E. found at Qumrum: Other texts

13. [They (the leaders) and all ... of them took for themselves] wives from all that they chose and [they began to cohabit with them and to defile themselves with them]; and to teach them sorcery and [spells and the cutting of roots; and to acquaint them with herbs.] And they become pregnant by them and bo[re (great) giants three thousand cubits high ...]
- Book of Enoch (from Translation by J. C. Greenfield

"Later Jewish tradition has it that their seduction was at least partly their own fault since they had taught the girls the art of cosmetics, and so had begun the awful progress of mankind to degeneracy and sexual abandon. More important, 'they taught them charms and enchantments, the cutting of roots, and make them acquainted with plants..." (Enoch 7:1ff)."
- John M. Allegro, The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross

"The Hebrew word for giants (nephilum) literally means the fallen-down-ones because these tall celestial beings fell from the sky. Their half-breed progeny and their descendants are often mentioned in the early books of the Old Testament until the last of them were finally killed off. They were known as the Rephaim [Hebrew for 'phantoms'], Emim, Anakim, Horim, Avim, and Zamzummim. Some scholars speculate that this tradition of giants born from the union of gods and humans formed the basis for the demigod of Greek mythology."
- Raymond E. Fowler, The Watchers

Key to Music

Chapter 8

1 And Azazel taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all

The king of Tyre was the agent of Lucifer according to Ezekiel. In describing the breastplate two Israelite tribes are left out. They are replaced with tambourines and flutes or pipes:

Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Eze.28:13

At that time Tyre will be forgotten for seventy years, the span of a king's life. But at the end of these seventy years, it will happen to Tyre as in the song of the prostitute: Is.23:15

Take up a harp, walk through the city, O prostitute forgotten; play the harp well, sing many a song, so that you will be remembered." Is.23:16

At the end of seventy years, the LORD will deal with Tyre. She will return to her hire as a prostitute and will ply her trade with all the kingdoms on the face of the earth. Is.23:17

According to Psalm 41, Judas as the agent of Satan and the den of vipers in Jerusalem, represented the same seductive force Satan always used against God's people. Jesus said that:

They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept. Lu.7:32

Therefore mine heart shall sound for Moab like pipes, and mine heart shall sound like pipes for the men of Kir-heres: because the riches that he hath gotten are perished. Je.48:36

2 colouring tinctures. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they

3 were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. Semjaza taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, 'Armaros the resolving of enchantments, Baraqijal (taught) astrology, Kokabel the constellations, Ezeqeel the knowledge of the clouds, Araqiel the signs of the earth, Shamsiel the signs of the sun, and Sariel the course of the moon. And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven . . .
Enchantment:

Gurney describes the Hittite worship and shows that the rituals were almost identical to the Canaanite and Hebrew worship. One of the features of 'sympathetic' magic among the Hittites was the "Old Woman" or "wise woman" which may mean "midwife." Other scholars note that early musicians acted as midwifes between a worshipper and their god. Gurney notes that "thirteen such women are known, but they function as sorceresses in countless rituals." Of the sorceresses who performed magic through the incantation of what we would call a poem or song, the "author" are 3 midwives, 1 doctor, 1 prostitute, and

2 temple singers."

"By contrast, many of the male practitioners or magicians were called priest, diviners, augurers, doctors (Gurney, O.R., Some Aspects of Hittite Religion, Oxford University Press, 1977, p. 45).

"In the story of the goddess Ishtar's descent into the underworld he (Ea) is described as creator god. In the deluge story he saves Utnapishtim, the Babylonian Noah.

Ea's charicteristic is wisdom, but this includes cunning deceit,
as shown in the behavior to Adapa in the myth of mankind's loss of immortality.
He is patron of exorcists, the 'sons of Eridu.' His holy waters are used to purify places, priests and utensils at ceremonies of exorcism, besides houses, temples, cities and persons inhabited by evil spirits... With his wisdom kings and craftsmen are endowed: the arts of civilization are by his grace." (Britannica, Ea) (He is also patron god of music as the exorcist's weapon).

These are the gifts Ishtar or Inanna gained From Ea, the demon god:

"My father has given me the me:
He gave me the high priesthood.
He gave me godship.
He gave me the noble, enduring crown.
He gave me the throne of kingship.

He gave me the noble sceptre.
He gave me the staff.
He gave me the holy measuring rod and line.
He gave me the high throne.
He gave me shepardship.
He gave me kingship.

He gave me the princess priestess.
He gave me the divine queen priestess.
He gave me the incantation priest.
He gave me the noble priest.
He gave me the libations priest.

He gave me truth.
He gave me decent into the underworld.
He gave me ascent from the underworls.
He gave me the kurgurra.

It is not uncommon in defending "civilian" homosexuality to ascribe the Biblical condemnation to cult or religious prostitution. However, one doubts that male-female adultery in the cut sense would give authority for male-female adultery in the "civilian" sense.

The kurgarru, the assinu, and the kulu'u

performed plays,
music,
dances, and
games during rituals

David Greenberg, in The Construction of Homosexuality (pages 96 and following), finds further support for this in other nearby ancient cultures: among others, a fourth century B.C. Phoenician inscription found on Cyprus "refers to a category of temple personnel who played a role in the sacred service of Astarte, identifies the kelev (dog) as a religious functionary.... The Sumerogram [a picture-word] for assinu, a male-homosexual cult prostitute... joines the symbols for 'dog' and 'woman.'"

Greenberg points out Hittite, Babylonian and Assyrian texts which refer to these male prostitutes. The texts picture assinu and kurgarru as
"religious functionaries particularly associated with the goddess Ishtar,
who danced, played musical instruments, wore masks,
and were considered f....
such functionaries were believed to have magical powers...

'if a man touches the head of an assinu, he will conquer his enemy'...
'if a man has intercourse with an assinu, trouble will leave him.'"

Greenberg, David F. The Construction of Homosexuality . The University of Chicago Press, 1988. Quoted by Arlene Robbins

Religious Symbolism: "Music, like the word, also may have symbolic meaning. The basic elements out of which musical symbolism is built are sounds, tones, melodies, harmonies, and the various musical instruments, among which is the human voice. Sound effects can have a numinous (spiritual) character and may be used to bring about contact with the realm of the holy. A specific tone may call one to an awareness of the holy, make the holy present, and produce an experience of the holy. This may be done by means of drums, gongs, bells, or other instruments. The ritual instruments can, through their shape or the materials from which they are made, have symbolic meaning. The Uitoto in Colombia, for example, believe that all the souls of their ancestors are contained in the ritual drums. Britannica Members Page 21 of 45+

The enchantments in the Book of Enoch are described as the power of Satan or Azazel to enter into the musical instruments. When the young Genun (Jubal) played on them people believed that the gods were speaking to them. Indeed, in this story alluded to by Jude from the book of Enoch--referred to dozens of times in the New Testament--teach that Satan is actually indwelling the music and the musican to deceive people:

Notes from the Books of Ysrael. From Hebrew Myths: The Book of Genesis By Robert Graves and Raphael Patai. Chapter 18 p. 100-107

(p) It was the Cainite's punishment to have a hundred daughters borne them for each son; and this led to such husband-hunger that their women began to raid houses and carry off men.

One day it pleased them to seduce them Sethites, after daubing their faces with rouge and powder, their eyes with antimony, and the soles of their feet with scarlet, dyeing their hair, putting on golden earrings, golden anklets, bracelets, and many-colored garments.

In their ascent of the holy mountain, they twanged harps, blew trumpets, beat drums, sang, danced, clapped hands; then, having addressed the five hundred and twenty anchorites in cheerful voices,

each caught hold of her victim and seduced him. These Sethites, after once succumbing to the Cainite women's blandishments,

became more unclean than dogs, and utterly forgot God's laws.

(r) Genun the Canaanite, son of Lamech the Blind, living in the Land of the Slime Pits,
..........was ruled by Azael from his earliest youth,
..........and invented all sorts of musical instruments.
..........When he played these, Azael entered into them too,
..........so that they gave forth seductive tunes entrancing the hearts of all listeners.

Genun would assemble companies of musicians, who inflamed one another with music until their lust burned bright like fire, and they lay together promiscuously. He also brewed beer, gathered great crowds in taverns, gave them to drink,

and taught them to forge iron swords and spear-points, with which to do murder at random when they were drunk.

In the land of the slime pits, Babylonia, it was Ishtar or Inanna who got her father, Ea, the patron god of music drunk and seduced him into giving her the ME. These included in another version:

"In the name of my power! In the name of my holy shrine!

To my daughter Inanna I shall give Truth!

Descent into the underworld!
Ascent from the underworld!
The art of lovemaking!
The art of kissing the phallus!"

He gave me the holy shrine.
He gave me the holy priestess of heaven.
He gave me the resounding musical instrument.
He gave me the art of song.
He gave me the art of the elder.


He gave me the kurgurra.
The kurgarru, the assinu, and the kulu'u performed plays, music, dances, and games (rising up to play) during rituals. These were musical worship teams in addition to the eldership stolen from the "god."

The only historical characters which answer to the fallen angels in Enoch are the children of Lamech. Cain is derived from a "musical note" and Jubal taught people to play musical instruments where HANDLE means "without authority."

"Pilikam, the next name, means in Sumerian "with intelligence to build." In Babylonian Semitic it would be literally Ina-uzni-eresu, or, rendered in one word, ummanu, "artificer." The Hebrew translation of this is Kenan, which means "artificer." Melamkish gives us the Hebrew Lamech by the simple elision of the first and last consonants.

"Langdon makes the suggestion that Lamech is the Sumerian, LUMHA, an epithet of the Babylonian god Ea as the patron of music. (Barton, p. 323)

But Tubal, one of his children by the other wife, exceeded all men in strength, and was very expert and famous in martial performances. He procured what tended to the pleasures of the body by that method; and first of all invented the art of making brass. Lamech was also the father of a daughter, whose name was Naamah.

"And because she was so skillful in matters of divine revelation, that he knew he was to be punished for Cain's murder of his brother, he made that known to his wives.

"Nay, even while Adam was alive, it came to pass that the posterity of Cain became exceeding wicked, every one successively dying, one after another, more wicked than the former. They were intolerable in war, and vehement in robberies; and if any one were slow to murder people, yet was he bold in his profligate behavior, in acting unjustly, and doing injuries for gain. Josephus

"Naamah, the sister of Tubal Cain, was from the side of Cain the murderer; she was a seducer of men and spirits, including Aza and Azael, who again were the children of God mentioned in Genesis. She became the mother of demons and is still abroad in the world, exciting the desires of me... She is associated with Lilith... and the fall of Adam." "Waite, The Holy Kabbalah, p. 274.)

In a similar story:

1 AFTER Cain had gone down to the land of dark soil, and his children had multiplied therein, there was one of them,

whose name was Genun (Jubal), son of Lamech the blind who slew Cain.

2 But as to this Genun, Satan came into him in his childhood;

and he made sundry trumpets and horns, and string instruments, cymbals and psalteries, and lyres and harps, and flutes; and he played on them at all times and at every hour.

3 And when he played on them,

Satan came into them, so that from among them were heard beautiful and sweet sounds, that ravished the heart.

Satan also taught Genun (Jubal) how to make intoxicants and the women how to decorate their bodies.

During the Classical period

Whatever the clear teachings of the Bible, the literature of all of the pagan "gods" carried the theme of wine, women and song. For instance, of Apollo whose oracle was at Delphi, just up the coast from Corinth show the connection between music and speaking in tongues:

"And there is this great wonder besides -- and its renown shall never perish -- the girls of Delos, hand-maidens of the Far-shooter;

for when they have praised Apollo first,
and also Leto and Artemis who delights in arrows,
they sing a strain-telling of men and women of past days,
and charm the tribes of men. Also they can imitate the tongues of all men and their clattering speech:

each would say that he himself were singing, so close to truth is their sweet song.

That is, the performance of the female singers seduces people into believing that they are singing but they are mere spectators even if their lips move.

His half-brother, Hermes (Mercury) was similar: The story is the same, the gods bless only the youth to steal the cattle of the oder people or gods. Remember, that in Enoch the people are identified with the name of beasts, often cows.

"And when the purpose of great Zeus was fixed in heaven, she was delivered and a notable thing was come to pass. For then she bare a son, of many shifts, blandly cunning, a robber, a cattle driver, a bringer of dreams, a watcher by night, a thief at the gates, one who was soon to show forth wonderful deeds among the deathless gods.

Born with the dawning, at mid-day he played on the lyre, and in the evening he stole the cattle of far-shooting Apollo on the fourth day of the month; for on that day queenly Maia bare him.

After the Biblical period, according to Lucian of Samosata:

"Alexander, on the other hand, preferred his native place, urging very truly that an enterprise like theirs required congenial soil to give it a start,

in the shape of 'fat-heads' and simpletons; that was a fair description, he said, of the Paphlagonians beyond Abonutichus;

they were mostly superstitious and well-to-do; one had only to go there with someone to play the flute, the tambourine, or the cymbals, set the proverbial mantic sieve a-spinning, and there they would all be gaping as if he were a god from heaven.

Chapter 9
1 And then Michael, Uriel, Raphael, and Gabriel looked down from heaven and saw much blood being

2 shed upon the earth, and all lawlessness being wrought upon the earth. And they said one to another: 'The earth made without inhabitant cries the voice of their cryingst up to the gates of heaven.

3 And now to you, the holy ones of heaven, the souls of men make their suit, saying, "Bring our cause

4 before the Most High."' 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 Thy glory (standeth) unto all the generations of the

5 ages, and Thy name holy and glorious and blessed unto all the ages! Thou hast made all things, and power over all things hast Thou: and all things are naked and open in Thy sight, and Thou seest all

6 things, and nothing can hide itself from Thee. Thou seest what Azazel hath done, who hath taught all unrighteousness on earth and revealed the eternal secrets which were (preserved) in heaven, which

7 men were striving to learn: And Semjaza, to whom Thou hast given authority to bear rule over his associates. And they have gone to the daughters of men upon the earth, and have slept with the

9 women, and have defiled themselves, and revealed to them all kinds of sins. And the women have

10 borne giants, and the whole earth has thereby been filled with blood and unrighteousness. And now, behold, the souls of those who have died are crying and making their suit to the gates of heaven, and their lamentations have ascended: and cannot cease because of the lawless deeds which are

11 wrought on the earth. And Thou knowest all things before they come to pass, and Thou seest these things and Thou dost suffer them, and Thou dost not say to us what we are to do to them in regard to these.'

Chapter 10

1 Then said the Most High, the Holy and Great One spake, and sent Uriel to the son of Lamech,

2 and said to him: Go to Noah and tell him in my name "Hide thyself!" and reveal to him the end that is approaching: that the whole earth will be destroyed, and a deluge is about to come

3 upon the whole earth, and will destroy all that is on it. And now instruct him that he may escape

4 and his seed may be preserved for all the generations of the world. And again the Lord said to Raphael: Bind Azazel hand and foot, and cast him into the darkness: and make an opening

5 in the desert, which is in Dudael, and cast him therein. And place upon him rough and jagged rocks, and cover him with darkness, and let him abide there for ever, and cover his face that he may

6,7 not see light. And on the day of the great judgement he shall be cast into the fire. And heal the earth which the angels have corrupted, and proclaim the healing of the earth, that they may heal the plague, and that all the children of men may not perish through all the secret things that the

8 Watchers have disclosed and have taught their sons. And the whole earth has been corrupted

9 through the works that were taught by Azazel: to him ascribe all sin. And to Gabriel said the Lord: Proceed against the bastards and the reprobates, and against the children of fornication: and destroy [the children of fornication and]

the children of the Watchers from amongst men [and cause them to go forth]:
send them one against the other that they may destroy each other in

REVELATION 9:11 They had for their king the angel of the Abyss, whose name, in Hebrew, is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon, or the Destroyer. (NEB)

In Revelation 9:11, the mysterious angelic "king" of the Abyss is called by the names Abaddon and Apollyon. Both these names mean "destroyer." If you will recall, the primary sin for which Azazel was imprisoned was for teaching men how to create weapons and destroy one another through warfare. It seems likely that Azazel and Abaddon/Apollyon are the same being. Although not specifically mentioned by these names elsewhere in the Bible, Azazel plays a major role in the events at the end of this current age. For additional information on this powerful fallen angel and his activities in the end-time, see my article "Who Is The 'Destroyer'?"

Again;
(r) Genun the Canaanite, son of Lamech the Blind, living in the Land of the Slime Pits,
..........was ruled by Azael from his earliest youth,
..........and invented all sorts of musical instruments.
..........When he played these, Azael entered into them too,
..........so that they gave forth seductive tunes entrancing the hearts of all listeners.

Genun would assemble companies of musicians, who inflamed one another with music until their lust burned bright like fire, and they lay together promiscuously. He also brewed beer, gathered great crowds in taverns, gave them to drink,

and taught them to forge iron swords and spear-points, with which to do murder at random when they were drunk.

Azazel is the chief of the Se'irim, or goat-demons, who haunted the desert and to whom most primitive Semitic (most likely non-Hebrew) tribes offered sacrifices.

The Old Testament states that Jeroboam appointed priests for the Se'irim. But Josiah destroyed the places of their worship, as the practices accompanying this worship involved copulation of women with goats.

2Chr. 11:14 For the Levites left their suburbs and their possession, and came to Judah and Jerusalem: for Jeroboam and his sons had cast them off from executing the priest’s office unto the LORD:

2Chr. 11:15 And he ordained him priests for the high places, and for the devils, and for the calves which he had made.

H8163 śâ‛ir saw-eer', saw-eer' From H8175 ; shaggy; as noun, a he goat; by analogy a faun:—devil, goat, hairy, kid, rough, satyr.

H8175 śâ‛ar saw-ar' A rpim root; to storm; by implication to shiver, that is, fear:—be (horribly) afraid, fear, hurl as a storm, be tempestuous, come like (take away as with) a whirlwind.

The Se'irim, or hairy demons as the word itself means, are mentioned in Leviticus 17:7 and 2 Chronicles 11:15 as "goat-demons". Isaiah 34:14 says that the "goat-demons" greet each other amoung the ruins of Edom along with Lilith and other wild beasts.

"The religious poetry of the Ugaritic texts has been shown to have close affinities with the Phraseology of the Hebrew Psalms. From the same sources come references to a class of Temple personnel designated by the term serim, who exercised functions similar to those of the Hebrew singers during the monarchy and later times. Some of the servants of David who were designated in 1 Kings 4:31 by (a) term meaning 'aboriginal' or 'native sons,' and who possessed Canaanite names such as Heman, Chalcol, and Darda, were engaged in various forms of musical activity.

Machowl (h4235) maw-khole'; the same as 4234; dancing; Machol, an Isr.: - Mahol.

Machowl (h4234) maw-khole'; from 2342; a (round) dance: - dance (- cing).

Chuwl (h2342) khool; or 2427 kheel; a prim. root; prop. to twist or whirl (in a circular or spiral manner), i. e. (spec.) to dance, to writhe in pain (espec. of parturition) or fear; fig. to wait, to pervert: - bear, (make to) bring forth, (make to) calve, dance, drive away, fall grievously (with pain), fear, form, great, grieve, (be) grievous, hope, look, make, be in pain, be much (sore) pained, rest, shake, shapen, (be) sorrow (-ful), stay, tarry, travail (with pain), tremble, trust, wait carefully (patiently), be wounded.

"A further reflection of this musical interest became apparent when Megiddo was excavated and the treasure room of the royal palace was uncovered. From this area was recovered a plaque inlaid with ivory, depicting a royal personage seated on a throne. He was drinking from a small bowl, and was being entertained by a court musician who stood before him plucking the strings of a lyre." (See Amos 5; 6; 8)

"With the later days of Solomon came a resurgence of Canaanite idolatry,
and when the kingdom began to function as two separate units, the breach between the religious life of the north and south was accentuated." (Harrison, R. K., Introduction to the Old Testament, Eerdmans, p. 335-6, see p. 411).

"Individuals or guilds of singers appeared under various designations, one of the more common being Asaph (Pss 50, 78-83). A prominant court-musician in the time of David bore this name (1 Chron. 6:39); 15:17), and it may well be that the 'sons of Asaph' in the period of Nehemiah (Neh. 7:44) were members of a musical guild that went back to the days of David and the monarchy. Ugaritic sources have testified amply to the existence of a class of Temple personnel known as sarim, who were analogous to the Hebrew singers of the monarchy and later times. As far as the Psalter was concerned, Asaph could refer either to the guild, to some member of it, or to their collection of religious poetry. The mention of Ethan the Ezrahite (Ps. 89; cf. 1 Chron. 6:44; in 1 Kgs. 4:31 Ethan is a Hebrew sage) and Heman the Ezrahite (Ps. 88; cf 1 Chron. 6:33

enshrined the native Canaanite tradition of music and psalmody, since as Albright has shown, the term 'ezrah means 'aboriginal.' Mention of the 'sons of Korah' (Pss 42:44-49, 84-85, 87-88) may imply the existence of another musical guild whose traditional origins probably reached back to Korah, the great-grandson of Levi (Numl 16:1ff; 1 Chron. 6:31Ff; 2 Chron 20:19)." Harrison, p. 979-980)

"Other names occurring in connection with the musical guilds are Chalcol (calcol) and Darda (I Chron. 2:6), which with Ethan and Heman appear in the list of wise men in I Kings 4:31. This classification is quite appropriate, since a great musician was commonly also a seer (I Chron. 25:5) or prophet (I Chron 25:2,3), as well as a wise man. Chalcol and Darda are designated 'sons of Mahol' or 'members of the orchestral guild,' and seem to reflect a class of plant or flower names applied to musicians. The equivalent of 'Chalcol' significantly appears on several ivories found at Megiddo in the hieroglyphic form of Kulkul, as a singer attached to the temple of Ptah in the Canaanite city of Ashkelon, dated about the thirteenth century B.C." (Unger, Merrill, Archaeology and the Old Testament, Zondervan, P. 217)

WHERE ARE THE WISE?

10 battle: for length of days shall they not have. And no request that they (i.e. their fathers) make of thee shall be granted unto their fathers on their behalf; for they hope to live an eternal life, and

11 that each one of them will live five hundred years. And the Lord said unto Michael: Go, bind Semjaza and his associates who have united themselves with women so as to have defiled themselves

12 with them in all their uncleanness. And when their sons have slain one another, and they have seen the destruction of their beloved ones, bind them fast for seventy generations in the valleys of the earth, till the day of their judgement and of their consummation, till the judgement that is

13 for ever and ever is consummated. In those days they shall be led off to the abyss of fire: and

14 to the torment and the prison in which they shall be confined for ever. And whosoever shall be condemned and destroyed will from thenceforth be bound together with them to the end of all

15 generations. And destroy all the spirits of the reprobate and the children of the Watchers, because

16 they have wronged mankind. Destroy all wrong from the face of the earth and let every evil work come to an end: and let the plant of righteousness and truth appear: and it shall prove a blessing; the works of righteousness and truth shall be planted in truth and joy for evermore

17 And then shall all the righteous escape,

And shall live till they beget thousands of children,
And all the days of their youth and their old age
Shall they complete in peace.

18 And then shall the whole earth be tilled in righteousness, and shall all be planted with trees and

19 be full of blessing. And all desirable trees shall be planted on it, and they shall plant vines on it: and the vine which they plant thereon shall yield wine in abundance, and as for all the seed which is sown thereon each measure (of it) shall bear a thousand, and each measure of olives shall yield

20 ten presses of oil. And cleanse thou the earth from all oppression, and from all unrighteousness, and from all sin, and from all godlessness: and all the uncleanness that is wrought upon the earth

21 destroy from off the earth. And all the children of men shall become righteous, and all nations

22 shall offer adoration and shall praise Me, and all shall worship Me. And the earth shall be cleansed from all defilement, and from all sin, and from all punishment, and from all torment, and I will never again send (them) upon it from generation to generation and for ever.

Chapter 11

1 And in those days I will open the store chambers of blessing which are in the heaven, so as to send 2 them down upon the earth over the work and labour of the children of men. And truth and peace shall be associated together throughout all the days of the world and throughout all the generations of men.

Chapter 12

1 Before these things Enoch was hidden, and no one of the children of men knew where he was

2 hidden, and where he abode, and what had become of him. And his activities had to do with the Watchers, and his days were with the holy ones.

3 And I Enoch was blessing the Lord of majesty and the King of the ages, and lo! the Watchers

4called me -Enoch the scribe- and said to me: 'Enoch, thou scribe of righteousness, go, declare to the Watchers of the heaven who have left the high heaven, the holy eternal place, and have defiled themselves with women, and have done as the children of earth do, and have taken unto themselves

5 wives: "Ye have wrought great destruction on the earth: And ye shall have no peace nor forgiveness

6 of sin: and inasmuch as they delight themselves in their children, The murder of their beloved ones shall they see, and over the destruction of their children shall they lament, and shall make supplication unto

Chapter 13

1 And Enoch went and said: Azazel, thou shalt have no peace: a severe sentence has gone forth

2 against thee to put thee in bonds: And thou shalt not have toleration nor request granted to thee, because of the unrighteousness which thou hast taught, and because of all the works of godlessness

3 and unrighteousness and sin which thou hast shown to men. Then I went and spoke to them all

4 together, and they were all afraid, and fear and trembling seized them. And they besought me to draw up a petition for them that they might find forgiveness, and to read their petition in the presence

5 of the Lord of heaven. For from thenceforward they could not speak (with Him) nor lift up their

6 eyes to heaven for shame of their sins for which they had been condemned. Then I wrote out their petition, and the prayer in regard to their spirits and their deeds individually and in regard to their

7 requests that they should have forgiveness and length. And I went off and sat down at the waters of Dan, in the land of Dan, to the south of the west of Hermon: I read their petition till I fell

8 asleep. And behold a dream came to me, and visions fell down upon me, and I saw visions of chastisement, and a voice came bidding (me) I to tell it to the sons of heaven, and reprimand them.

9 And when I awaked, I came unto them, and they were all sitting gathered together, weeping in

10 Abelsjail, which is between Lebanon and Seneser, with their faces covered. And I recounted before them all the visions which I had seen in sleep, and I began to speak the words of righteousness, and to reprimand the heavenly Watchers.

Chapter 14

1 The book of the words of righteousness, and of the reprimand of the eternal Watchers in accordance

2 with the command of the Holy Great One in that vision. I saw in my sleep what I will now say with a tongue of flesh and with the breath of my mouth: which the Great One has given to men to

3 converse therewith and understand with the heart. As He has created and given to man the power of understanding the word of wisdom, so hath He created me also and given me the power of reprimanding

4 the Watchers, the children of heaven. I wrote out your petition, and in my vision it appeared thus, that your petition will not be granted unto you throughout all the days of eternity, and that judgement

5 has been finally passed upon you: yea (your petition) will not be granted unto you. And from henceforth you shall not ascend into heaven unto all eternity, and in bonds of the earth the decree

6 has gone forth to bind you for all the days of the world. And (that) previously you shall have seen the destruction of your beloved sons and ye shall have no pleasure in them, but they shall fall before

7 you by the sword. And your petition on their behalf shall not be granted, nor yet on your own: even though you weep and pray and speak all the words contained in the writing which I have

8 written. And the vision was shown to me thus: Behold, in the vision clouds invited me and a mist summoned me, and the course of the stars and the lightnings sped and hastened me, and the winds in

9 the vision caused me to fly and lifted me upward, and bore me into heaven. And I went in till I drew nigh to a wall which is built of crystals and surrounded by tongues of fire: and it began to affright

10 me. And I went into the tongues of fire and drew nigh to a large house which was built of crystals: and the walls of the house were like a tesselated floor (made) of crystals, and its groundwork was

11 of crystal. Its ceiling was like the path of the stars and the lightnings, and between them were

12 fiery cherubim, and their heaven was (clear as) water. A flaming fire surrounded the walls, and its

13 portals blazed with fire. And I entered into that house, and it was hot as fire and cold as ice: there

14 were no delights of life therein: fear covered me, and trembling got hold upon me. And as I quaked

15 and trembled, I fell upon my face. And I beheld a vision, And lo! there was a second house, greater

16 than the former, and the entire portal stood open before me, and it was built of flames of fire. And in every respect it so excelled in splendour and magnificence and extent that I cannot describe to

17 you its splendour and its extent. And its floor was of fire, and above it were lightnings and the path

18of the stars, and its ceiling also was flaming fire. And I looked and saw therein a lofty throne: its appearance was as crystal, and the wheels thereof as the shining sun, and there was the vision of

19 cherubim. And from underneath the throne came streams of flaming fire so that I could not look

20 thereon. And the Great Glory sat thereon, and His raiment shone more brightly than the sun and

21 was whiter than any snow. None of the angels could enter and could behold His face by reason

22 of the magnificence and glory and no flesh could behold Him. The flaming fire was round about Him, and a great fire stood before Him, and none around could draw nigh Him: ten thousand times

23 ten thousand (stood) before Him, yet He needed no counselor. And the most holy ones who were

24 nigh to Him did not leave by night nor depart from Him. And until then I had been prostrate on my face, trembling: and the Lord called me with His own mouth, and said to me: ' Come hither,

25 Enoch, and hear my word.' And one of the holy ones came to me and waked me, and He made me rise up and approach the door: and I bowed my face downwards.

Chapter 15

1 And He answered and said to me, and I heard His voice: 'Fear not, Enoch, thou righteous

2 man and scribe of righteousness: approach hither and hear my voice. And go, say to the Watchers of heaven, who have sent thee to intercede for them: "You should intercede" for men, and not men

3 for you: Wherefore have ye left the high, holy, and eternal heaven, and lain with women, and defiled yourselves with the daughters of men and taken to yourselves wives, and done like the children

4 of earth, and begotten giants (as your) sons? And though ye were holy, spiritual, living the eternal life, you have defiled yourselves with the blood of women, and have begotten (children) with the blood of flesh, and, as the children of men, have lusted after flesh and blood as those also do who die

5 and perish. Therefore have I given them wives also that they might impregnate them, and beget

6 children by them, that thus nothing might be wanting to them on earth. But you were formerly

7 spiritual, living the eternal life, and immortal for all generations of the world. And therefore I have not appointed wives for you; for as for the spiritual ones of the heaven, in heaven is their dwelling.

8 And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon

9 the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling. Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin;

10 they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called. [As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling.]

11 And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless

12 hunger and thirst, and cause offences. And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them.

Chapter 16

1 From the days of the slaughter and destruction and death of the giants, from the souls of whose flesh the spirits, having gone forth, shall destroy without incurring judgement -thus shall they destroy until the day of the consummation, the great judgement in which the age shall be

2 consummated, over the Watchers and the godless, yea, shall be wholly consummated." And now as to the Watchers who have sent thee to intercede for them, who had been aforetime in heaven, say to them:

3 "You have been in heaven, but all the mysteries had not yet been revealed to you, and you knew worthless ones, and these in the hardness of your hearts you have made known to the women, and through these mysteries women and men work much evil on earth."

4 Say to them therefore: " You have no peace."'

Chapter 17

1 And they took and brought me to a place in which those who were there were like flaming fire,

2 and, when they wished, they appeared as men.

And they brought me to the place of darkness,
and to a mountain the point of whose summit reached to heaven.

3 And I saw the places of the luminaries and the treasuries of the stars and of the thunder and in the uttermost depths, where were

4 a fiery bow and arrows and their quiver, and a fiery sword and all the lightnings. And they took

5 me to the living waters, and to the fire of the west, which receives every setting of the sun. And I came to a river of fire in which the fire flows like water and discharges itself into the great sea towards

6 the west. I saw the great rivers and came to the great river and to the great darkness, and went

7 to the place where no flesh walks. I saw the mountains of the darkness of winter and the place

8 whence all the waters of the deep flow. I saw the mouths of all the rivers of the earth and the mouth of the deep.

Chapter 18

1 I saw the treasuries of all the winds: I saw how He had furnished with them the whole creation

2 and the firm foundations of the earth. And I saw the corner-stone of the earth: I saw the four

3 winds which bear [the earth and] the firmament of the heaven. And I saw how the winds stretch out the vaults of heaven, and have their station between heaven and earth: these are the pillars

4 of the heaven. I saw the winds of heaven which turn and bring the circumference of the sun and

5 all the stars to their setting. I saw the winds on the earth carrying the clouds: I saw the paths

6 of the angels. I saw at the end of the earth the firmament of the heaven above.

And I proceeded and saw a place which burns day and night,
where there are seven mountains of magnificent stones,

7 three towards the east, and three towards the south. And as for those towards the east, was of coloured stone, and one of pearl, and one of jacinth, and those towards the south of red stone.

8 But the middle one reached to heaven like the throne of God, of alabaster, and the summit of the

9,10 throne was of sapphire. And I saw a flaming fire. And beyond these mountains Is a region the end of the great earth: there the heavens were completed.

11 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 towards

12 the height and towards the depth. And beyond that abyss I saw a place which had no firmament of the heaven above, and no firmly founded earth beneath it: there was no water upon it, and no

13 birds, but it was a waste and horrible place. I saw there seven stars like great burning mountains,

14 and to me, when I inquired regarding them,

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.

15 And the stars which roll over the fire are they which have transgressed the commandment of the Lord in the beginning of

16 their rising, because they did not come forth at their appointed times. And He was wroth with them, and bound them till the time when their guilt should be consummated (even) for ten thousand years.'

Chapter19

1 And Uriel said to me: 'Here shall stand the angels who have connected themselves with women,

and their spirits assuming many different forms are defiling mankind and shall lead them astray into sacrificing to demons as gods, (here shall they stand,) till the day of the great judgement in

2 which they shall be judged till they are made an end of.

And the women also of the angels who

3 went astray shall become sirens.' And I, Enoch, alone saw the vision, the ends of all things: and no man shall see as I have seen. See Section Five for the Bible-Music Connection

Chapter 20

1,2 And these are the names of the holy angels who watch. Uriel, one of the holy angels, who is

3 over the world and over Tartarus. Raphael, one of the holy angels, who is over the spirits of men.

4,5 Raguel, one of the holy angels who takes vengeance on the world of the luminaries. Michael, one

6 of the holy angels, to wit, he that is set over the best part of mankind and over chaos. Saraqael,

7 one of the holy angels, who is set over the spirits, who sin in the spirit. Gabriel, one of the holy

8 angels, who is over Paradise and the serpents and the Cherubim.

Remiel, one of the holy angels, whom God set over those who rise.

Chapter 21

1,2 And I proceeded to where things were chaotic. And I saw there something horrible: I saw neither

3 a heaven above nor a firmly founded earth, but a place chaotic and horrible. And there I saw

4 seven stars of the heaven bound together in it, like great mountains and burning with fire. Then

5 I said: 'For what sin are they bound, and on what account have they been cast in hither?' Then said Uriel, one of the holy angels, who was with me, and was chief over them, and said: 'Enoch, why

6 dost thou ask, and why art thou eager for the truth? These are of the number of the stars of heaven, which have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and are bound here till ten thousand years,

7 the time entailed by their sins, are consummated.' And from thence I went to another place, which was still more horrible than the former, and I saw a horrible thing: a great fire there which burnt and blazed, and the place was cleft as far as the abyss, being full of great descending columns of

8 fire: neither its extent or magnitude could I see, nor could I conjecture. Then I said: 'How

9 fearful is the place and how terrible to look upon!' Then Uriel answered me, one of the holy angels who was with me, and said unto me: 'Enoch, why hast thou such fear and affright?' And

10 I answered: 'Because of this fearful place, and because of the spectacle of the pain.' And he said unto me: 'This place is the prison of the angels, and here they will be imprisoned for ever.'

Chapter 22

1 And thence I went to another place, and he mountain [and] of hard rock.

2 And there was in it four hollow places, deep and wide and very smooth. How smooth are the hollow places and deep and dark to look at.

3 Then Raphael answered, one of the holy angels who was with me, and said unto me: 'These hollow places have been created for this very purpose, that the spirits of the souls of the dead should

4 assemble therein, yea that all the souls of the children of men should assemble here. And these places have been made to receive them till the day of their judgement and till their appointed period [till the period appointed], till the great judgement (comes) upon them.' I saw (the spirit of) a dead man making suit,

5 and his voice went forth to heaven and made suit. And I asked Raphael the angel who was

6 with me, and I said unto him: 'This spirit which maketh suit, whose is it, whose voice goeth forth and maketh suit to heaven ?'

7 And he answered me saying: 'This is the spirit which went forth from Abel, whom his brother Cain slew, and he makes his suit against him till his seed is destroyed from the face of the earth, and his seed is annihilated from amongst the seed of men.'

8 The I asked regarding it, and regarding all the hollow places: 'Why is one separated from the other?'

9 And he answered me and said unto me: 'These three have been made that the spirits of the dead might be separated. And such a division has been make (for) the spirits of the righteous, in which there is the bright spring of

10 water. And such has been made for sinners when they die and are buried in the earth and judgement has not been executed on them in their

11 lifetime. Here their spirits shall be set apart in this great pain till the great day of judgement and punishment and torment of those who curse for ever and retribution for their spirits. There

12 He shall bind them for ever. And such a division has been made for the spirits of those who make their suit, who make disclosures concerning their destruction, when they were slain in the days

13 of the sinners. Such has been made for the spirits of men who were not righteous but sinners, who were complete in transgression, and of the transgressors they shall be companions: but their spirits shall not be slain in the day of judgement nor shall they be raised from thence.'

14 The I blessed the Lord of glory and said: 'Blessed be my Lord, the Lord of righteousness, who ruleth for ever.'

Chapter 23

1,2 From thence I went to another place to the west of the ends of the earth. And I saw a burning

3 fire which ran without resting, and paused not from its course day or night but (ran) regularly. And

4 I asked saying: 'What is this which rests not?' Then Raguel, one of the holy angels who was with me, answered me and said unto me: 'This course of fire which thou hast seen is the fire in the west which persecutes all the luminaries of heaven.'

Chapter 24

1 And from thence I went to another place of the earth, and he showed me a mountain range of

2 fire which burnt day and night.

And I went beyond it and saw seven magnificent mountains all differing each from the other, and the stones (thereof) were magnificent and beautiful, magnificent as a whole, of glorious appearance and fair exterior: three towards the east, one founded on the other, and three towards the south, one upon the other, and deep rough ravines, no one of which

3 joined with any other. And the seventh mountain was in the midst of these, and it excelled them

4 in height, resembling the seat of a throne: and fragrant trees encircled the throne. And amongst them was a tree such as I had never yet smelt, neither was any amongst them nor were others like it: it had a fragrance beyond all fragrance, and its leaves and blooms and wood wither not for ever:

5 and its fruit is beautiful, and its fruit resembles the dates of a palm. Then I said: 'How beautiful is this tree, and fragrant, and its leaves are fair, and its blooms very delightful in appearance.'

6 Then answered Michael, one of the holy and honoured angels who was with me, and was their leader.

Chapter 25

1 And he said unto me: 'Enoch, why dost thou ask me regarding the fragrance of the tree,

2 and why dost thou wish to learn the truth?' Then I answered him saying: 'I wish to

3 know about everything, but especially about this tree.' And he answered saying:

'This high mountain which thou hast seen, whose summit is like the throne of God,
is His throne, where the Holy Great One, the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King, will sit, when He shall come down to visit

4 the earth with goodness. And as for this fragrant tree no mortal is permitted to touch it till the great judgement, when He shall take vengeance on all and bring (everything) to its consummation

5 for ever. It shall then be given to the righteous and holy. Its fruit shall be for food to the elect: it shall be transplanted to the holy place, to the temple of the Lord, the Eternal King.

6 Then shall they rejoice with joy and be glad,

And into the holy place shall they enter;
And its fragrance shall be in their bones,
And they shall live a long life on earth,
Such as thy fathers lived:
And in their days shall no sorrow or plague
Or torment or calamity touch them.'

7 Then blessed I the God of Glory, the Eternal King, who hath prepared such things for the righteous, and hath created them and promised to give to them.

Chapter 26

1 And I went from thence to the middle of the earth, and I saw a blessed place in which there were

2 trees with branches abiding and blooming [of a dismembered tree]. And there I saw a holy mountain,

3 and underneath the mountain to the east there was a stream and it flowed towards the south. And I saw towards the east another mountain higher than this, and between them a deep and narrow

4 ravine: in it also ran a stream underneath the mountain. And to the west thereof there was another mountain, lower than the former and of small elevation, and a ravine deep and dry between them: and another deep and dry ravine was at the extremities of the three mountains.

5 And all the ravines were deep rand narrow, (being formed) of hard rock, and trees were not planted upon

6 them. And I marveled at the rocks, and I marveled at the ravine, yea, I marveled very much.

Chapter 27

1 Then said I: 'For what object is this blessed land, which is entirely filled with trees, and this

2 accursed valley between?' Then Uriel, one of the holy angels who was with me, answered and said: 'This accursed valley is for those who are accursed for ever: Here shall all the accursed be gathered together who utter with their lips against the Lord unseemly words and of His glory speak hard things. Here shall they be gathered together, and here

3 shall be their place of judgement. In the last days there shall be upon them the spectacle of righteous judgement in the presence of the righteous for ever: here shall the merciful bless the Lord of glory, the Eternal King.

4 In the days of judgement over the former, they shall bless Him for the mercy in accordance with

5 which He has assigned them (their lot).' Then I blessed the Lord of Glory and set forth His glory and lauded Him gloriously.

Chapter 28

1 And thence I went towards the east, into the midst of the mountain range of the desert, and

2 I saw a wilderness and it was solitary, full of trees and plants. And water gushed forth from

3 above. Rushing like a copious watercourse [which flowed] towards the north-west it caused clouds and dew to ascend on every side.

Chapter 29

1 And thence I went to another place in the desert, and approached to the east of this mountain range.

2 And there I saw aromatic trees exhaling the fragrance of frankincense and myrrh, and the trees also were similar to the almond tree.

Chapter 30

1,2 And beyond these, I went afar to the east, and I saw another place, a valley (full) of water. And

3 therein there was a tree, the colour (?) of fragrant trees such as the mastic. And on the sides of those valleys I saw fragrant cinnamon. And beyond these I proceeded to the east.

Chapter 31

1 And I saw other mountains, and amongst them were groves of trees, and there flowed forth from

2 them nectar, which is named sarara and galbanum. And beyond these mountains I saw another mountain to the east of the ends of the earth, whereon were aloe-trees, and all the trees were full

3 of stacte, being like almond-trees. And when one burnt it, it smelt sweeter than any fragrant odour.

Chapter 32

1 And after these fragrant odours, as I looked towards the north over the mountains I saw seven mountains full of choice nard and fragrant trees and cinnamon and pepper.

2 And thence I went over the summits of all these mountains, far towards the east of the earth, and passed above the Erythraean sea and went far from it, and passed over the angel Zotiel. And I came to the Garden of Righteousness,

3 I and from afar off trees more numerous than I these trees and great-two trees there, very great, beautiful, and glorious, and magnificent, and the tree of knowledge, whose holy fruit they eat and know great wisdom. (see Ezek. 31)

4 That tree is in height like the fir, and its leaves are like (those of) the Carob tree: and its fruit

5 is like the clusters of the vine, very beautiful: and the fragrance of the tree penetrates afar. Then

6 I said: 'How beautiful is the tree, and how attractive is its look!' Then Raphael the holy angel, who was with me, answered me and said:

'This is the tree of wisdom, of which thy father old (in years) and thy aged mother, who were before thee, have eaten,

and they learnt wisdom and their eyes were opened, and they knew that they were naked and they were driven out of the garden.'

Chapter 33

1 And from thence I went to the ends of the earth and saw there great beasts, and each differed from the other; and (I saw) birds also differing in appearance and beauty and voice, the one differing from the other. And to the east of those beasts I saw the ends of the earth whereon the heaven

2 rests, and the portals of the heaven open. And I saw how the stars of heaven come forth, and

3 I counted the portals out of which they proceed, and wrote down all their outlets, of each individual star by itself, according to their number and their names, their courses and their positions, and their

4 times and their months, as Uriel the holy angel who was with me showed me. He showed all things to me and wrote them down for me: also their names he wrote for me, and their laws and their companies.

Chapter 34

1 And from thence I went towards the north to the ends of the earth, and there I saw a great and

2 glorious device at the ends of the whole earth. And here I saw three portals of heaven open in the heaven: through each of them proceed north winds: when they blow there is cold, hail, frost,

3 snow, dew, and rain. And out of one portal they blow for good: but when they blow through the other two portals, it is with violence and affliction on the earth, and they blow with violence.

Chapter 35

1 And from thence I went towards the west to the ends of the earth, and saw there three portals of the heaven open such as I had seen in the east, the same number of portals, and the same number of outlets.

Chapter 36

1 And from thence I went to the south to the ends of the earth, and saw there three open portals

2 of the heaven: and thence there come dew, rain, and wind. And from thence I went to the east to the ends of the heaven, and saw here the three eastern portals of heaven open and small portals

3 above them. Through each of these small portals pass the stars of heaven and run their course to the west on the path which is shown to them.

And as often as I saw I blessed always the Lord of Glory,
and I continued to bless the Lord of Glory
who has wrought great and glorious wonders,
to show the greatness of His work to the angels and to spirits and to men,
that they might praise His work and all His creation:
that they might see the work of His might and praise the great work of His hands
and bless Him for ever.
