1 Enoch was an important and popular text in ancient Judaism, well attested among the manuscripts at Qumran, and a key piece of the puzzle of the development of early Judaism and Christian origins. George W. E. Nickelsburg and James C. VanderKam have now revised their translation in conjunction with their publication of the complete two volumes on 1 Enoch in the Hermeneia commentary series. This is the only English translation of 1 Enoch that takes into consideration all of the textual data now available in the Ethiopic version and the Greek texts, in addition to the Dead Sea Aramaic fragments.… (more)

No current Talk conversations about this book.

A basic introduction to the book of Enoch (1 Enoch) and a translation of the text.

The authors also wrote Hermeneia commentaries on 1 Enoch; the translation has been partially modified from those commentaries. The introduction provides a standard scholarly take on 1 Enoch, explaining the contents of its various sections, postulating possible dating, and providing a basic explanation of its textual history.

The translation itself is fresh and beneficial, far easier to follow and make sense of than the standard turn of the century translation by R.H. Charles. The translation is full of notes indicating where other textual witnesses diverge and how.

A useful resource to better understand the book of Enoch. ( )
