      By James Trimm

      The Babylonian Flood Story dating to the time of Abraham and found
      on clay tablets:

      "There was Anu, lord of firmament, their father, and warrior Enlil
      their counsellor, Ninurta the helper, and Ennugi watcher over
      canals; and with them also was Ea. In those days the world teemed,
      the people multiplied, the world bellowed like a wild bull, and the
      great god was aroused by the clamour. Enlil heard the clamour and
      he said to the gods in council, "The uproar of mankind is
      intolerable and sleep is no longer possible by reason of the
      babel." So the gods in their hearts were moved to let loose the
      deluge; but my lord Ea warned me in a dream... build a boat. These
      are the measurements of the barque... then take up into the boat the
      seed of all living creatures... For six days and six nights the
      winds blew, torrent and tempest and flood overwhelmed the world...
      on the mountain of Nasir the boat held fast... I loosed a dove and
      let her go. She flew away but finding no resting place she
      returned. Then I loosed a swallow, and she flew away but finding no
      resting plase she returned. I loosed a raven, she saw that the
      waters had returned, she ate, she flew around, she cawed, and she
      did not come back... I made made a sacrifice... "

      Now scholars have long recognized many parallels between this Flood
      Story and the account in Genesis:

      1. In both accounts an individual is warned to build an ark/boat.

      2. In both accounts it is mentioned that man had multiplied on the

      3. In both accounts the individual is told the dimentions to build
      the ark/boat.

      4. Both accounts have the formula that the rain lasted "____ days
      and ____ nights".

      5. Both accounts have the ark/boat coming to rest on a mountain.

      6. Both accounts have birds sent out to find dry land.

      7. Both accounts have the ark/boat builder making a sacrifice after
      exiting his vessel.

      This plainly tells us that the Babylonian Flood Story is the
      Babylonian twisting of the same flood story revealed in Genesis.

      There are also many important parallels that have long gone unoticed
      between the flood account on these ancient tablets and the flood
      account in the Book of Enoch which are not found in Genesis.

      First of all in the Genesis account the flood occurs because:

      "Elohim saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth..."
      (Gen. 6:5)

      but in the Babylonian story the flood occurs because:

      "Enlil heard the clamour and he said to the gods in council, 'The
      uproar of mankind is intolerable and sleep is no longer possible by
      reason of the babel.'"

      This is a clear distinction between the two stories. Now in the
      Book of Enoch the flood occurs because:

      "part of mankind was perishing from the earth, they cried and their
      cry went up to heaven."
      (1En. 8:4).

      In both the Babylonian and Enochian accounts a cry from men on earth
      is heard in the heavenlies, but this element is absent form the
      Genesis account.

      In the Babylonian account four false gods (Anu, Enlil, Ninurta and
      nnugi) who have Ea with them hear the "clamour" from mankind, Enlil
      proposes the idea of a flood and gets agreement, but Ea sympathises
      with man and warns Utnapishtim (the Babylonian "Noah") to build a

      In the Enochian account four angels (Uriel, Raphael, Gabriel and
      Michael) hear the cry of man and then consult with Yahweh who
      proposes the flood and send Uriel to Noah to warn him to build an
      ark (1Enoch 9 & 10)

      Clearly the Enochian account rather than the Genesis account is the
      source of this portion of the Babylonian story.

      Moreover the Babylonian flood story is part of a much longer work
      called "The Epic of Gilgimesh" which records the expolits of its
      hero Gilgimesh in his failed search for eternal life.

      Now a previously lost book to the Book of Enoch found in only
      fragmentary form among the Dead Sea Scrolls (called the "Book of
      Giants") gives the names of some of the giants born to the Fallen
      angels, among them is a giant named "Gilgamesh".

      The Epic of Gilgamesh describes Gilgamesh as part man, part god:

      "When the gods created Gilgamesh they gave him a perfect body.
      Shamash the glorious sun endowed him with beauty, Adad the god of
      the storm endowed him with courage, the great gods made his beauty
      perfect, surpassing all others. Two thirds they made him god and
      one third man."

      In the Book of Enoch one of the fallen angels who fathers the giants
      is Shimsh'el (Sun of El).

      In the Epic of Gilgamesh, Gilgamesh has a companion known
      as "Enkidu, the wild man" while one of the Enochian fragments
      mentioning Gilgamesh has an unknown speaker [Enkidu?] say "the
      wild man they call [me]".

      These amazing connections between the Book of Enoch and the clay
      tablets of the Epic of Gilgamesh point to the great antiquity of the
      Book of Enoch. The material of this book stretches back long before
      the first century and provided some of the material that served
      as the basis for the pagan distortions of the Babylonian Epic of


      A new Messianic/Sacred Name edition of the Books of Enoch (1st & 2nd

      Most translations of the Book of Enoch available today are taken
      from the ancient Ethiopic version of the text, which is the only
      language in which the book was passed down in its complete form.

      However in more recent years seven fragmentary Aramaic copies of the
      Book of Enoch have been found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. In
      addition several fragments of the ancient Greek version of the Book
      of Enoch have also come to light.

      This new edition of the Book of Enoch is the first Messianic, Sacred
      Name version of the Book of Enoch.

      Unlike most versions of the Book of Enoch this edition is translated,
      wherever possible, from the remains of the ancient Aramaic version
      of the book. Wherever the Aramaic is lacking I have consulted the
      Greek fragments of Enoch and I have followed the Ethiopic wherever
      the Aramaic and Greek fragments are both lacking any witnesses to
      the text. Unlike many other versions of 1Enoch I have always sought
      to reach behind the Aramaic, Greek and Ethiopic to the original
      Hebrew of 1Enoch.

      This edition ALSO INCLUDES a new and fresh version of 2Enoch, also
      known as "The Secrets of Enoch" as well. Although 2Enoch has only
      survived in Old Slavonic manuscripts, this new version reaches
      behind the Slavonic to the original Hebrew of 2Enoch.

      This amazing new edition of 1&2 Enoch also includes OVER 300
      scholalrly footnotes.

      This is without a doubt the best edition of the Books of Enoch
      available today.

      This is a perfect bound edition and *NOT* a spiral bound volume.
      This book is available from the publisher for just $34.95 and ships
      within two days of order placement.

      We still urgently need your support. If you believe the work we are
      doing at SANJ is worthy of support now is the time to show your
      support. For ten years SANJ has been doing work that is unlike what
      any other ministry is doing. We have documented the history of the
      ancient sect of the Nazarenes. We have tracked down the original
      Hebrew and Aramaic texts of New Testament books, some of which have
      not been printed in nearly 500 years! We have produced translations
      of these books (The Hebraic Roots Version Bible as well as our
      printed edition of DuTillet Hebrew Matthew). We have also tracked
      down the Aramaic, Greek and Ethiopic texts of the Book of Enoch and
      produced a new, Messianic, Sacred name version based primarily on
      the Aramaic texts. We have tracked down the original Hebrew of the
      Book of Jasher and are preparing a new translation and an
      interlinear version. We are also tracking down the original Hebrew
      and Aramaic texts of the books of the Apocrypha so that we may
      produce a Hebraic Roots Version of the Apocrypha and publish an
      interlinear version as well. We are turning actual publication and
      distribution of these materials to outside publishers so that we may
      concentrate only on research and production. Now we really need your
      help. If ever you have considered making a contribution to this
      effort, now is the time to do so. Since these funds are urgently
