Rev2: This final version only fixes a few mispronounced words and adds MP3 tags for play in portable devices.
Rev1: The Extra file "018 1Enoch_int" is included here upon request and adds several interpolations to help the reader understand who several of the key animals are related to in the Animal Apocalypse.
This translation takes heavily from the Ethiopic, but includes all of the additional fragments of both the Aramaic and Greek. The most significant addition to this book is the additional information about the three classes of Giants; the great giants, the Nephilim, and the Elioud. The Hebrew word "Elioud" derives from two root words, El, and Howd. In Hebrew, El means "Gods or godlike," and Howd means "imposing in form, to be praised." This last class of giants were made from the mixing of one animal with another, very similar to what is found in Egyptian Mythology.
Note: The Egyptian book of the dead states the Egyptian Gods were slain by the sword of the Watchers! And The pyramid texts states that the pyramids were built by groups of ten giants, and their leaders were their fathers!
Most of the other additions are minor, but help to better explain what has been assumed by
scholars, and to provide a more accurate rendition of what the author intended.
