nd said: Enoch, why do you inquire respecting the odour of this tree? Why
are you inquisitive to know it?
Then I, Enoch, replied to him, and said, Concerning everything I am desirous of instruction, but particularly concerning this tree.
He answered me, saying, That mountain which you behold, the extent of whose head resembles the seat of the Lord, will be the seat on which shall sit the holy and great Lord of glory, the everlasting King, when he shall come and descend to visit the earth with goodness.
And that tree of an agreeable smell, not one of carnal odor
, there shall be no power to touch, until the period of the great judgment. When all shall be punished and consumed for ever, this shall be bestowed on the righteous and humble.
The fruit of the tree
shall be given to the elect. For towards the north life shall be planted in the holy place, towards the habitation of the everlasting King.
Then shall they greatly rejoice and exult in the Holy One. The sweet odor shall enter into their bones; and they shall live a long life on the earth as your forefathers have lived; neither in their days shall sorrow, distress, trouble, and punishment afflict them.
And I blessed the Lord of glory, the everlasting King, because He has prepared this tree
for the saints, formed it, and declared that He would give it to them.
