Satan and Demons: The Untold Story

Satan and Demons: The Untold Story
By
James Scott Trimm



Is there a “devil”? Is HaSatan an evil fallen angel in rebellion to Elohim, or just a good angel that got stuck with the unpopular job of heaven’s prosecutor? Here are the answers from YHWH’’s Word!

There are two accounts of HaSatan’s fall given in the Tanak. One is to be found in Ezekiel 28:11-19:

11 Moreover the word of YHWH came unto me, saying:
12 Son of man, take up a lamentation for the king of Tzor, and say unto him, Thus says the Adonai YHWH: You seal most accurate, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty,
13 You were in Eden, the garden of Elohim; every precious stone was your covering: the carnelian, the topaz, and the emerald, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the carbuncle, and the smaragd, and gold; the workmanship of your settings and of your sockets was in you; in the day that you were created, they were prepared.
14 You were the far-covering cheruv: and I set you, so that you were upon the Set-Apart mountain of Elohim; you have walked up and down in the midst of stones of fire.
15 You were perfect in your ways, from the day that you were created, till unrighteousness was found in you.
16 By the multitude of your traffic, they filled the midst of you with violence, and you have sinned. Therefore have I cast you as profane, out of the mountain of Elohim: and I have destroyed you, O covering cheruv, from the midst of the stones of fire.
17 Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you have corrupted your wisdom by reason of your brightness. I have cast you to the ground; I have laid you before kings, that they may gaze upon you.
18 By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your traffic, you have profaned your sanctuaries. Therefore have I brought forth a fire from the midst of you; it has devoured you. And I have turned you to ashes upon the earth, in the sight of all them
that behold you.
19 All they that know you among the peoples shall be appalled at you. You are become a terror, and you shall never be–any more.
(Ezekiel 28:11-19 HRV)

These words are spoken the spiritual King of Tyre which is clear from verses 14 and 16 where he is called “covering cheruv” and verse 13 which tells us he was “in Eden” obviously the “covering cheruv” who was in Eden was the serpent, HaSatan.

Here we are given some clues as to the cause of HaSatan’s fall “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you have corrupted your wisdom by reason of your brightness…” (verse 17).

Another account of the fall of HaSatan is found in Isaiah 14 in reference to a figure called “The King of Babylon” (Is. 14:4):

12 How are you fallen from heaven, O Hallel, son of the morning! How are you cut down to the ground, that did cast lots over the nations!
13 And you said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, above the stars of El will I exalt my throne, and I will sit upon the mount of meeting, in the uttermost parts of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like Elyon.
15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sh’ol; to the uttermost parts of the pit.
(Isaiah 14:12-15 HRV)

Again this figure is clearly a [fallen] angel who is the spiritual King of Babylon as we read in the Midrash Rabbah:

R. Hunia said with reference to the dictum of R. Isaac: The Holy One, blessed be He, does not punish a nation on earth till He has cast down its guardian angel from heaven. This is borne out by five Scriptural verses. …The second is: How art thou fallen from heaven, O day-star, son of the morning! after which we read, How art thou cut down to the ground (Is. 14:12).
(Song of Songs Rabbah VIII:19)

From this portion of Isaiah we learn that HaSatan directly rebelled against YHWH, seeking to put himself (his own opinions) above YHWH (YHWH’s Word).

So what caused HaSatan to be so prideful in himself. What caused him to directly challenge the all powerful YHWH? A clue is given in the Psalms:

5 (8:4) What is man, that You are mindful of him: and the son of man, that You think of him?
6 (8:5) Yet You have made him but little lower than the elohim, and have crowned him with glory and honor.
7 (8:6) You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under His feet:
(Psalm 8:5-7 (4-6))

It is worthy of note that where the Hebrew of the Masoretic Text has “little lower than elohim” in verse 6, both the Aramaic Peshitta and Greek versions have “little lower than angels” in this verse, and it is interpreted to mean “angels” in Hebrews 2:6-9.

According to the Talmud, Midrash Rabba and Zohar, the phrase “What is man, that You are mindful of him” (Ps. 8:5) was actually spoken by a group of angels who were challenging Elohim:

Rab Judah said in Rab’s name: When the Holy One, blessed be He, wished to create man, He [first] created a company of ministering angels and said to them: Is it your desire that we make a man in our image? They answered: Sovereign of the Universe, what will be his deeds? Such and such will be his deeds, He replied. Thereupon they exclaimed: Sovereign of the Universe, What is man that thou art mindful of him, and the son of man that thou thinkest of him? (Ps. 8:5) Thereupon He stretched out His little finger among them and consumed them with fire. The same thing happened with a second company. The third company said to Him: Sovereign of the Universe, what did it avail the former [angels] that they spoke to Thee [as they did]? the whole world is Thine, and whatsoever that Thou wishest to do therein, do it. When He came to the men of the Age of the flood and of the division [of tongues] whose deeds were corrupt, they said to Him: Lord of the Universe, did not the first [company of angels] speak aright? Even to old age I am the same, and even to hoar hairs will I carry,(Is. 46:4) He retorted.
(b.San. 38b)

Why is it stated ’for your pride’? It alludes to the idols on which they pride themselves, saying, Where are their gods, the rock in whom they trusted (Deut. 32:37). Another interpretation of ’for your pride’: on account of the Ministering Angels who are proud of themselves and say, ’What is man, that Thou art mindful of him, etc.? ‘ (Ps. 8:5)
(Lam. Rabbah Prologue XXV)

What, then, was Adam’s wisdom? You find that when the Holy One, blessed be He, wished to create Adam, He took counsel with the ministering angels and said to them, ‘Let us make man’ (Gen. 1:26). They spoke before Him, ‘Lord of the universe, what is man, that Thou art mindful of him? (Ps. 8:5).’ He replied to them, ‘The man whom I desire to create will have wisdom exceeding yours.’
(Eccl. Rabbah VII:33)

The Zohar gives even more detail:

“Of the Nefilim it is said: “and the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair” (Gen. 6:1f). These form a second category of the Nefilim, already mentioned above, in this way: When God thought of making man, He said: “Let us make man in our image, etc.” i.e. He intended to make him head over the celestial beings, who were to be his deputies, like Joseph over the governors of Egypt (Gen. 41:41). The angels thereupon began to malign him and say, “What is man that You should remember him (Ps. 8:5(4)), seeing that he will assuredly sin before You.” Said God to them, “If you were on earth like him, you would sin worse.” And so it was. For “when the sons of God saw the daughters of man”, they fell in love with them, and God cast them down from heaven. These were Uzza and Azael; from them the “mixed multitude” derive their souls, and therefore they also are called nefilim, because they fell into fornication with fair women.”
(Zohar 1:25b)

…Uzza and Azael actually opposed it [the creation of man]. For when the Shekinah said to God “Let us make man”, they said, “What is man that thou shouldst know him? Why desirest thou to create man, who, as thou knowest, will sin before thee through his wife, who is the darkness to his light, light being male and darkness female?” The Shekinah answered them: “You yourselves shall commit the very crime of which you accuse him”; and so it is written, “and the sons of God saw the daughters of man that they were comely”, and they went astray after them and were degraded by the Shekinah from their holy estate.’ Said the colleagues: ‘Rabbi, after all, Uzza and Azael were not wrong, because man was really destined to sin through woman.’ He replied, ‘What the Shekinah said was this: “You have spoken worse of man than all the rest of the heavenly host. If you were more virtuous than man, you would have a right to accuse him. But whereas he will sin with one woman, you will sin with many women, as it is written, ‘and the sons of God saw the daughters of man’- not a daughter, but daughters; and further, if man sinned, he was ready to repent and to return to his Master and repair his wrong.” ‘
(Zohar 1:23a)

They therefore went to R. Simeon and laid the matter before him. In reply he cited to them the verse: “What is man that thou art mindful of him, and the son of man that thou visitest him?” (Ps. 8:5). ‘The exposition of this verse’, he said, ‘is that it was uttered by those in charge of the world at the time when God expressed His intention of creating man. He called together various companies of heavenly angels and stationed them before Him. He said to them: I desire to create man. They exclaimed, “Man abideth not in honour”, etc. (Ps. 44: 13). God thereupon put forth His finger and burnt them. He then set other groups before Him, and said: I desire to create man. They exclaimed, ”What is man that thou shouldst remember him?” What is the character of this man, they asked. He replied: Man will be in our image, and his wisdom will be superior to yours. When He had created man and he sinned and obtained a pardon, Uzza and Azael approached Him and said: We can plead justification against Thee, since the man whom Thou hast made has sinned against Thee. He said to them: Had you been with them you would have sinned equally, and He cast them down from their high estate in heaven.
(Zohar 3:207b-208a)


Compare to Gen. 6:1-2 “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them… they were fair.” (Gen. 6:1-2)  In the Rabbinic literature Shemikhazah and Azazel are called “Uzza and Azael”.  According to the tradition found in the Zohar above, when YHWH was creating man, He intended him to be head over all celestial beings.  Certain angels (being lead by Uzza and Azael) maligned YHWH saying “what is man that you should remember him” (Ps. 8:5(4)).  saying that man would sin through his wife.  YHWH responded by saying that if they were on earth like man they would sin worse than man, sinning thru many women, not just one.  YHWH then cast them down to earth. (Zohar 1:23a, 25b; 2:207b-208a)


At this point we should point out that according to the Book of Enoch Gadreel/Azazel went as the Serpent


6 And the third was named Gadreel:  
he it is who showed the children of men all the blows of death, and he led astray Eve, and showed [the weapons of death to the sons of men] the shield and the coat of mail, and the sword for battle, and all the weapons of death to the children of men.
7 And from his hand they have proceeded against those who dwell on the earth from that day and for evermore.
(1Enoch 69:6-7)

Gadreel appears to be a title for Asa’el/Azazel of whom he Book of Enoch says:

1 And Asa’el taught men to make swords of iron, and knives, and shields, and breastplates of brass, and made known to them the metals that are excavated from the earth and the art of working gold and concerning silver, and bracelets, and ornaments, and concerning antimony, and eye shadow, and all kinds of costly stones, and all colouring tinctures.
2 And there arose much godlessness, and being wicked, and they were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways.
(1Enoch 8:1-2)

And here Enoch tells us that Azazel was one and the same with the Serpent in the garden of Eden.  (The Hebrew may have been גדראל (Gederel) “mason of El” or “wall of El”) Azazel had entered the garden and tempted Eve to as to prove his point that man should not be head over all celestial beings and would sin thru his wife. YHWH responded by casting the rebel angels to the earth to be tested themselves. We read in the Torah:

1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of Elohim saw the daughters of men, that they were fair. And they took them wives, whomsoever they chose.
3 And YHWH said: My Spirit shall not abide in man forever. For that he also is flesh; therefore shall his days be a hundred and twenty years.
4 The N’filim were on the earth in those days and also after that, when the sons of Elohim came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. The same were the mighty men that were of old–the men of renown.
5 And YHWH saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil; continually.
6 And it repented YHWH that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.
7 And YHWH said: I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the earth: both man, and beast, and creeping thing, and fowl of the air, for it repents Me that I have made them.
(Gen. 6:1-7 HRV)

Who were these “sons of Elohim”? The Book of Enoch tells us that these “sons of Elohim” were “angels” who had “left their first estate”
and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority.  They are presumptuous, self-willed; they are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries,
(2Peter 2:2-10 HRV)

And the angels who did not keep their first estate,  but left their own habitation, he has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;
as S’dom and ‘Amora and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also these dreamers defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of rulers.
(Jude 1:6-8 HRV)


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 and beget us children.’
3 And Shemikhazah, who was their leader, said unto them: ‘I fear you will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.’
4 And they all answered him and said: ‘Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by imprecations not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.’
5 Then they all swore together and bound themselves by imprecations upon it.
6 And they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Yared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn and bound themselves by imprecations upon it.
(1Enoch 6:1-6 – James Trimm Translation)

The Book of Enoch tells us that these fallen angels became subjects of “Satan”:

And Mikha’el, and Gavri’el, and Rafa’el, and P’nuel  shall take hold of them on that great day, and cast them on that day into the burning furnace, that YHWH Tzva’ot may take vengeance on them for their unrighteousness in becoming subject to Satan and leading astray those who dwell on the earth.’
(1Enoch 54:6)

It is important to understand that “Satan” is not a name.  “Satan” is a title, it is a Hebrew word meaning “adversary”.  In the Tanak it often appears in the Hebrew with a definite article as “HaSatan” (“THE Satan”) although in Hebrew (as in English), names never appear with a definite article.  It is never “The James”.

Ironically in most places where you see the word “Lord” in your Bibles, the Hebrew word is actually YHWH, which is the Name of the Creator.  Theologians have replaced the Name of the Creator with a title, and turned the title “HaSatan” (“The Adversary”) into a name!

The Book of Enoch also makes a very interesting statement:

And I heard the fourth voice fending off the Satans and forbidding them to come before YHWH of Spirits to accuse them who dwell on the earth.
(1Enoch 40:7)

Now to people today who have been conditioned to think of “Satan” as a name rather than a title, seeing the name Satan in the plural seems very odd indeed.  But to the ancient Hebrew reader we are simply looking at the title “the adversary” describing more than one “adversary”.  Yes the Book of Enoch is telling us that the Fallen Angels are subject to more than one “satan” (adversary).  (Since the Tanak often uses the term “THE Adversary” (Ha-Satan) it is clear that there is nonetheless a unique figure who is a leader over all of the fallen angels who is called in the Hebrew “Ha-Satan” “The Satan”.

After giving the names of the twenty leaders of tens of the fallen angels (found in 1Enoch 6:7-8 and repeated in 1Enoch 69:2-3) the Book of Enoch gives us a list of five leaders over forties in 69:4-12 who are five “satans” or five adversaries to whom the fallen angels are subject. These appear to be the “satans” referred to in 1Enoch 40:7.

This portion of the Book of Enoch (1Enoch 69) has only survived in Ethiopic, however I will endeavor in this article to reach behind the Ethiopic, to the original Hebrew of these verses:

4 The name of the first Yekon:  
that is, the one who led astray [all] the sons of Elohim,  and brought them down to the earth, and led them astray through the daughters of men.

The original Hebrew behind “Yekon” may have been יקום (Yekom) “rebel; one who rises up” however in Biblical Hebrew this word (from a root meaning “to rise up”) simply means “a living thing” (Strong’s 3351).  Another possibility is יקמעם (Y’kam’am) (Strong’s 3360) which is a name used twice in the Tanak (1Chr. 23:19; 24:23) meaning “he who gathers the people together”.  (Or simply “Y’kam” יקם “he who gathers”) Yekon appears to be a title for Shemikhazah who in the Book of Enoch chapter 6 led the 200 fallen angels astray through the daughters of men.

5 And the second was named Asbeel:  
he imparted to the set-apart sons of Elohim evil counsel, and led them astray so that they defiled their bodies with the daughters of men.

“Asbeel” is probably a scribal error for Kasbeel, who while they still dwelt in heaven obtained the secret of the sacred name and the secret of its numbers so that they could be used in the oath that bound them together:

13 And this is the number of Kasbeel, the chief of the oath, which he showed to the set-apart ones when he dwelt high above in glory, and its name is Biqa.  
14 This (angel) requested Mikha’el to show him the hidden name, that he might enunciate it in the oath, so that those might quake before that name and oath
15 who revealed all that was in secret to the children of men? And this is the power of this oath, for it is powerful and strong, and he placed this oath Akae in the hand of Mikha’el.
(1Enoch 69:13-15)

This was covered in great detail in a recent article: Secrets of the Oath That Binds the Fallen Angels.  The underlying Hebrew for Kasbeel may have been חשביל (Khashevel) “thought of El.”

6 And the third was named Gadreel:  
he it is who showed the children of men all the blows of death, and he led astray Eve,  and showed [the weapons of death to the sons of men] the shield and the coat of mail, and the sword for battle, and all the weapons of death to the children of men.
7 And from his hand they have proceeded against those who dwell on the earth from that day and for evermore.

Gadreel appears to be a title for Asa’el/Azazel of whom he Book of Enoch says:

1 And Asa’el taught men to make swords of iron, and knives, and shields, and breastplates of brass, and made known to them the metals that are excavated from the earth and the art of working gold and concerning silver, and bracelets, and ornaments, and concerning antimony, and eye shadow, and all kinds of costly stones, and all colouring tinctures.
2 And there arose much godlessness, and being wicked, and they were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways.
(1Enoch 8:1-2)

And here Enoch tells us that Azazel was one and the same with the Serpent in the garden of Eden.  The Hebrew may have been גדראל (Gederel) “mason of El” or “wall of El”

8 And the fourth was named Penemue:  
he taught the children of men the bitter and the sweet, and he taught them all the secrets of their wisdom.
9 And he instructed mankind in writing with ink and paper, and thereby many sinned from eternity to eternity and until this day.

The title in Hebrew may have been פנה אמונה (Pana Emunah) “He has turned from trust/faith” or פנמו  “inside”  Since the Book of Enoch itself refers to Enoch as “Enoch the Scribe” (1Enoch 12:4), Enoch felt a parenthetical explanation was needed:

10 For men were not created for such a purpose, to give confirmation to their good faith with pen and ink.
11 For men were created exactly like the angels, to the intent that they should continue pure and righteous, and death, which destroys everything, could not have taken hold of them, but through this their knowledge they are perishing, and through this power it is consuming me.

So writing was not originally intended for man at the time he was created (because man was created immortal), but after the fall, writing serves the purpose of allowing man to pass information from generation to generation, so that ideas are not lost when men die.

12 And the fifth was named Kasdeya:
this is he who showed the children of men all the wicked smitings of spirits and demons, and the smitings of the embryo in the womb,  that it may pass away, and [the smitings of the soul] the bites of the serpent, and the smitings which befall through the noontide heat, the son of the serpent named Taba’et.
(1Enoch 69:4-12)


The Book of Enoch tells us that the fallen angels introduced an ancient abortion procedure, showing “the children of men … the smitings of the embryo in the womb, that it may pass away,…” (1Enoch 69:12)

Similarly the Book of Jasher (see Joshua 10:23 and 2Sam. 1:18) tells us that during these days before the flood a “draught” was also introduced that was a permanent method of birth control for women:

17 And Lamech, the son of M’tushael, became related to Kayinan by marriage, and he took his two daughters for his wives, and Adah conceived and bare a son to Lamech, and she called his name Yaval.
18 And she again conceived and bare a son, and called his name Yuval; and Zillah, her sister, was barren in those days and had no offspring.
19 For in those days the sons of men began to trespass against Elohim, and to transgress the commandments which he had commanded to the man, to be fruitful and multiply in the earth.

20 And some of the sons of men caused their wives to drink a draught that would render them barren, in order that they might retain their figures and whereby their beautiful appearance might not fade.
21 And when the sons of men caused some of their wives to drink, Zillah drank with them.
22 And the child-bearing women appeared abominable in the eyes of their husbands as widows, while their husbands lived, for to the barren ones only they were attached.
(Jasher 2:17-22)


This sterilization “draught” was likely also introduced by the fallen angels.

Later in the Book of Enoch, Enoch speaks of abortion in the last days saying:

And in those days the women shall become pregnant
and abort their babies
And cast them out from their midst
Yea, they shall abandon their children (that are still) sucklings,
and not return to them,
And shall have no pity on their beloved ones.
(1Enoch 99:5)


The original Hebrew of the Book of Enoch has not survived, and this passage has survived only in the Ancient Ethiopic version. In the Ethiopic the word for “abort” here is MASIT a verb meaning “to pluck or tear out”; “to violently remove”; “to carry off” or “to rob”. Clearly this passage speaks of women aborting their babies in the last days.

The original Hebrew behind “Kasdeya” may have been חסדיה (Khesedyah)“Yah has favored” (see 1Chron. 3:20) but Aramaic כשדיא (Kash’diya) “Chaldeans” may be more likely.

There is not just one Adversary (Satan) there are five adversaries (satans) who are leaders over the fallen angels.  Spiritual Warfare is much more complicated that you may have realized, there is not just one Satan, there are FIVE!


Evil Spirits on the Earth


The fallen angels impregnated human women with offspring known as giants:


1 And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives from all, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in unto them and to defile themselves with them, and they taught them sorcery and spellbinding,  and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants.
2 And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand cubits, and there were not born upon the earth children of their strength.
(1En. 7:1-2)


At the flood the giants became evil spirits on the earth:


8 And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling.  
9 Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men and from the set-apart Watchers is their beginning and primal origin; they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called.
10 [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 hunger and thirst, and cause offenses.
12 And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them.
(1En. 15:8-12).

Origin of the Sirens
Another passage in the Book of Enoch tells us:

“And the women also of the angels who went astray shall become sirens.”
(1Enoch 19:2).

Although the Ethiopic text has “salamaweyan” (“peaceful”) which is widely regarded as a corruption with the original reading being that found in the Greek εις σειρηνας “into sirens.”  This is certainly a passage which we would like to see in the Aramaic, much less the lost original Hebrew, but unfortunately the Aramaic for this passage has not survived.

In Greek mythology, the Sirens were beautiful yet dangerous creatures, who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island.  So why would the Book of Enoch refer to “sirens”.  Why would an ancient Hebrew text refer to figures of Greek mythology and what was the original Hebrew word(s) behind the word “sirens”?


“Sirens” in the LXX

In the Greek Septuagint the Greek word σειρηνας (sirens) does in fact appear several times where the Hebrew has the phrase בת יענה.  There is debate as to what this phrase means, some arguing that it refers to a female owl and others a female ostrich.  The word  יענה always appear with the prefix בת (literally “daughter of”).

But wildcats shall lie there, and their houses shall be full of ferrets:
and ostriches shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there.
And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses,
and dragons in their pleasant palaces:
and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.
(Isaiah 13:21-22)

Therefore the wildcats with the jackals shall dwell there, and the ostriches shall dwell therein. And it shall be no more inhabited forever, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation.
(Jeremiah 50:39 (27:39)

For this will I wail and howl, I will go stripped and naked; I will make a wailing like the jackals, and a mourning like the ostriches.
(Micah 1:8)

The context is that of female beings who cry and wail.


Peshitta Tanak and Targum

In two of these examples from the Septuagint (Is. 13:21) and Jeremiah 30:39 the Hebrew phrase בת יענה is translated בנת נעמא in the Aramaic Peshitta Tanak.  The Targum Jonathan for Isaiah 13:21 has בנת נעמיין in the Aramaic.

Lamsa renders this phrase in the Peshitta as “ostriches” however it is literally “daughters of Naamah.”  The Aramaic of the Targum could mean “daughters of loveliness” but could also be a plural form derived from Naamah.  Namaah was the sister of Tubal Cain, as we read in the Torah:

And Zillah, she also bare Tubal-cain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah.
(Gen. 4:22)


Naamah in the Zohar

According to the Zohar Naamah seduced the fallen angels led by Shemikhazah and Azzazel (Uzza and Azael as they are called throughout the Zohar).  She is the mother of demons and lives to this day having her abode among the waves of the great sea.  She is said to seduce men and make sport with them:

These two chiefs were named ’Afrira and Kastimon. They, moreover, bear the likeness of holy angels, having six wings. One of them had the face of an ox and the other that of an eagle. But when they became united they assumed the image of a man. In time of darkness they change into the form of a two-headed serpent, and crawl like a serpent, and swoop into the abyss, and bathe in the great sea. When they reach the abode of Uzza and Azael they stir them up and rouse them. These then leap into the “dark mountains”, thinking that their day of judgement has come before the Holy One, blessed be His Name. The two chiefs then swim about in the great sea, and when night comes they fly off to Na’amah, the mother of the demons (shedim), by whom the first saints were seduced; but when they think to approach her she leaps away six thousand parasangs, and assumes all shapes and forms in the midst of the sons of men, so that the sons of men may be led astray after her.
(Zohar 1:9b)

She [Naamah] by her beauty led astray the “sons of God”, Uzza and Azael, and she bore them children, and so from her went forth evil spirits and demons into the world. She wanders about at night time, vexing the sons of men and causing them to defile themselves. Wherever these spirits find people sleeping alone in a house, they hover over them, lay hold of them and cleave to them, inspire desire in them and beget from them.
(Zohar 1:19b)

AND THE SISTER OF TUBAL CAIN WAS NAAMAH. R. Hiya said: ‘Why does the Scripture particularly mention Naamah? The reason is that she was the great seducer not only of men, but also of spirits and demons.’ R. Isaac said: ‘The “sons of God” mentioned in the Scripture (Gen. 6:4), who were Uzza and Azael, were seduced by her.’ R. Simeon said: ‘She was the mother of the demons, being of the side of Cain, and it is she who in company with Lilith brings epilepsy on children.’ Said R. Abba to him: ‘Did you not say before that her function is to seduce men? ‘ He replied: ‘That is so; she disports herself with men, and sometimes bears spirits from them. And she still exists to seduce men.’ Said R. Abba to him: ‘But do these demons not die like human beings? How then comes she to exist to the present day? ‘ He replied: ‘It is so. Lilith and Naamah and Iggereth, the daughter of Mahlath, who originated from their side, will all continue to exist until the Holy One, blessed be He, sweeps away the unclean spirit, as it is written, “I will cause the unclean spirit to pass out of the land” (Zech. 13:2).’ Said R. Simeon: ‘Alas for the blindness of the sons of men, all unaware as they are how full the earth is of strange and invisible beings and hidden dangers, which could they but see, they would marvel how they themselves can exist on the earth. This Naamah was the mother of the demons, and from her originate all those evil spirits which mix with men and arouse in them concupiscence, which leads them to defilement. It is because such a hap comes from the side of the unclean spirit that it entails the need of purification by ablution, as our colleagues have explained.’
Zohar 1:55a)

One male came into the world from the side of the spirit of the side of Cain, and they called him Tubal Cain. A female came with him who was called Naamah, from whom issued other spirits and demons; these hover in the air and tell things to those others below. This Tubal Cain produced weapons of war, and this Naamah clung to her own side, and she still exists, having her abode among the waves of the great sea. She goes forth and makes sport with men and conceives from them through their lustful dreams. From that lust she becomes pregnant and brings forth further species in the world. The sons whom she bears from human beings show themselves to the females of mankind, who become pregnant from them and bring forth spirits, and they all go to the ancient Lilith, who brings them up. She goes out into the world and seeks her little ones, and when she sees little children she cleaves to them in order to kill them and to insinuate herself into their spirits. There are, however, three holy spirits which fly in front of her and take that spirit from her and set it before the Holy One, blessed be He, and there they seare taught before Him. Thus they guard that child and she cannot hurt him. But if a man is not holy, and draws upon himself a spirit from the unclean side, she comes and makes sport with that child, and if she kills him she enters into his spirit and never leaves it. You may say: What about those others whom she has killed, although the three angels  confronted her and took from her their spirits? Since they were not on the side of uncleanness, why had she power to kill them? This happens when a man does not sanctify himself, but yet does not purposely try to defile himself nor actually do so. In such cases she has power over the body but not the spirit. Sometimes it happens that Naamah goes forth to have intercourse with men and a man is linked with her in lust, and then suddenly wakes and clasps his wife though his mind is still full of the lust of his dream. In that case the son so born is of the side of Naamah, and when Lilith goes forth she sees him and knows what has happened, and brings him up like the other children of Naamah, and he is often with her, and she does not kill him. This is the man who receives a blemish on every New Moon.
(Zohar 3:76b-77a)


Thus the term σειρηνας (siren) in the Greek of 1Enoch 19:2 points us to an underlying Aramaic of בנת נעמא and the tradition recorded in the Zohar that Naamah seduced the fallen angels, is a mother of demons and was a chief among their wives, lives to this day, abides among the waves of the great sea and seduces men.  Once again the Zohar demonstrates an in-depth knowledge of the Book of Enoch and becomes an invaluable tool to understanding the Book of Enoch.  (If the Zohar were a product of the middle ages as many skeptics claim, it could not express knowledge of the Book of Enoch which was lost by the middle ages).
The Bat Ya’anah are a special class of female demons whose chief function is to seduce men to their spiritual destruction.   This is the spirit of Jezebel of which we read in the Scriptures:


“Ahav ben Omri did more evil in the eyes of Yahweh than any of those before him. He not only considered it trivial to commit the sins of Jeroboam ben Nebat, but he also married Jezebel daughter of Ethba’al king of the Sidonians, and began to serve Ba’al and worship him. He set up an altar for Ba’al in the temple of Ba’al that he built in Samaria.” (1 Kings 16:30-32)


18 And to the messenger that is in the assembly that is in Thyatira, write, Thus says the Son of Eloah, He who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like the brass of Lebanon:
19 I know your works, and your love, and your trust, and your service, and your patience, and your latter works are greater than the former [ones],
20 But I have much against you: because you allowed your wife, Jezebel–she who says concerning her nefesh, that she is a prophetess, and teaches and deceives My servants to commit sexual immorality, and to eat sacrifices of idols.
21 And I gave her a time for repentance, and she does not desire to repent from her sexual immorality.
22 Behold, I [will] cast her into the coffin, and those who commit adultery with her into great affliction, unless they repent of their deeds.
23 And I will kill her sons with death, and all the assemblies [will] know that I am searching the reins, and the heart: and I will give to every one of you, according to your works.
(Rev. 2:18-23 HRV)


I have seen this spirit of Jezebeel destroy leaders in these last days.


War in Heaven


HaSatan was the leader of the group of angels who, because of their pride, dared to question YHWH and challenge His creation of man. Refusing to accept YHWH’s will, HaSatan and the angels who followed him launched a war in heaven against man:

7 And there was war in heaven: and Mikha’el and his angels were fighting with the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought,
8 And they did not prevail, and no place was found for them in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out–that head serpent who is called, Akel Kartza and HaSatan–who deceived the whole earth: and he was cast out upon the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a great voice from heaven saying, Behold, there is deliverance, and
power, and the Kingdom of our Eloah: for the accuser of our brothers is cast out, who accused them night and day before our Eloah.
(Rev. 12:7 HRV)

Cast to the earth HaSatan has launched a special war against those who accept both the Torah and the Messiah:

And the dragon was angry concerning the woman, and he went to wage war with the remnant of her seed–those who keep the commandments of Eloah and have the testimony of Yeshua.
(Rev. 12:17 HRV)


But no weapon forged against this movement will prosper (Is. 54:17). Like Job, our latter end, will be more than our beginning (Job. 42:12).

The Book of Enoch Restored

The Book of Enoch was treasured by the ancient Nazarenes as an inspired book of prophecy authored by Enoch himself.

Yeshua’s own half-brother Y’hudah quotes from the Book of Enoch saying:

And Chanokh [Enoch], the seventh from Adam,
prophesied about these men saying:
Behold, YHWH comes with ten thousands of his set-apart-ones,
to execute judgment on all, co convict all who are wicked
among them of their wicked deeds which they have committed in
a wicked way, and all the harsh things which wicked sinners
have spoken against him.
(Yhudah (Jude) 1:14-15 HRV)

Some commentators have tried to minimize the importance of thisquotation, claiming that Y’hudah was only quoting the Book of Enoch in the way that Paul quoted Greek philosophers. In fact there are two very important features in Y’hudah’s citation.

First of all, while the Book of Enoch is quoted (specifically 1Enoch 1:9), Y’hudah attributes his quote, not to the Book of Enoch, but to the man Enoch (Enoch, seventh from Adam). Since we have copies of the Book of Enoch which predate the Book of Y’hudah, this quote tells us that Enoch seventh from Adam wrote the Book of Enoch.

Secondly Y’hudah uses the word “prophecy”. Y’hudah tells us that this quote from Enoch which comes from the Book of Enoch is “prophecy”. That is a very important statement.

Regarding prophecy Kefa (Peter) writes:

knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture
is of any private interpretation; for prophecy never
came by the will of man, but set-apart men of Eloah
spoke as they were moved by the Ruach HaKodesh.
(2Kefa (2Pt.) 1:20-21 – HRV)

So if, as Y’hudah tells us, the Book of Enoch is “prophecy” then Kefa tells us that it was inspired by the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit).

Paul has some important words for us about Scripture that is inspired:

Every writing which was written by the spirit is profitable
for teaching and for reproof and for correction and for
instruction in righteousness, that the son of man of Eloah
may be complete and whole for every good work.
(2Timothy 3:16-17 – HRV)

So if the Book of Enoch is prophecy then it was inspired by the Ruach HaKodesh. And if Enoch was inspired by the Ruach then it is profitable for teaching and for reproof and for correction and for instruction in righteousness. In other words, if Y’hudah is telling the truth then we should be using the Book of Enoch as Scripture and not taking it lightly!

As a matter of fact the ancient Nazarenes treasured the Book of Enoch and used it along side the books we know today as canon. This is evidenced by fact that Y’hudah quotes Enoch. R.H. Charles listed 128 locations where the Ketuvin Netzarim (The writings of the Nazarenes, commonly known today as the “New Testament”) is clearly influenced by statements in the Book of Enoch.

The Book of Enoch was used within Judaism at least as early as the second century B.C.E.. Seven fragmentary Aramaic copies were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Zohar also cites the Book of Enoch by name (Zohar 1:37b) and makes much use of its account of the fallen angels Shemikhaza (which the Zohar calls Uzael) and Azzazel.

The earliest Gentile Christians also accepted and made use of the Book of Enoch. Many of the so-called “Church Fathers” either quoted Enoch, or made use of it. Among these were the author of the Epistle of Pseudo-Barnabas, Justin Martyr (2nd C.), Irenaeus (2nd C.), Clement of Alexandria (2nd C.) and Origin (3rd C.). Tertullian (160-230 C.E.) even called the book “Holy Scripture”. The book was even canonized by the Ethiopic Church.

LOST AND FOUND

In the fourth century the Book of Enoch came under fire from such “Church Fathers” as Augustine, Hilary and Jerome. The Book of Enoch was soon banned except in the remote Ethiopic Church, which had canonized it. The original Hebrew was lost completely to time and has yet to be recovered. The Aramaic and Greek versions disappeared as well (portions of these have since been discovered. The complete text has survived only in Ethiopic.

The Book of Enoch was not recovered until the famous explorer James Bruce brought Ethiopic copies of the book to Europe in 1773. And it was not until 1800 that translations of any of the material were published.

In the twentieth Century, several very fragmentary Aramaic copies of the Book of Enoch were discovered among the Dead Sea Scrolls and portions of two ancient Greek translations, and a small portion of a Latin translation were also discovered. However the text survives in it’s entirety only in Ethiopic.

FOR WHOM DID ENOCH WRITE?

The Book of Enoch is especially given for the benefit of those believers in the last days who are Torah Observant:

The words of the blessing with which Enoch
blessed the chosen and righteous,
who will be living in the day of tribulation,
when all the wicked and godless are to be removed.
(1Enoch 1:1)

Another book which Enoch wrote for his son Methuselah
and for those who will come after him,
and observe the Torah in the last days.
(1Enoch 108:1)

Have we Become Last Days Babylon?

Have we Become Last Days Babylon?
By
James Scott Trimm

It is important to know that “Babel” and “Babylon” are the same word in Hebrew. The Book of Jasher (Joshua 10:13 and 2Samuel 1:18) gives a more detailed description of the building of the Tower of Babel saying:

28 And it came to pass these ascended and these [others] descended the whole day; and it came to pass that if a brick should fall from their hands and get broken, they would all weep over it, and if a man fell and died, none of them would look at him.
(Jasher 9:28)

The people of Babel were more concerned about building the tower than the lives of the people.

This reminds us of the condition of men in the last days as described by Yeshua:

[12] And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
(Matthew 24:12)

The Book of Revelation warns us about last days “Babylon” saying:

[2] And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
[3] For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
[4] And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
(Rev. 18:2-4 KJV)

Last days Babylon is obsessed with its economy as we read “the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies” but that those who “come out of her” may not “receive of her plagues”.

So think about last days Babylon and its towering economy, its valuing of its economy over lives, its love that has waxed cold such that lives have less value that its tower. Come out of her “that you receive not of her plagues”.

Restoring the House of Judah

Recently I told you that YHWH is getting ready to do great things with the House of Judah and the House of Israel. The ground has been softened and broken and made ready for planting.

I told you that the time has come for us to get even more serious about the restoration of the House of Judah. By the “House of Judah” I mean “Nazarene Judaism” and the restoration of the original Jewish sect of followers of Yeshua as the Jewish Messiah of Judaism.

Let us consider what the Scriptures tell us about the House of Judah and Ephraim. We read in Hosea:

24 (2:22) And the earth shall respond to the grain, and the wine, and the oil–and they shall respond to Yizre’el.
25 (2:23) And I will sow her unto Me in the land, and I will have compassion upon her that had not obtained compassion. And I will say to them that were not My people: You are My people, and they shall say, You are my Elohim.
(Hosea 2:24-35 (2:22-23) HRV)

This passage from Hosea brings us to a most overlooked thread of prophecy, that of the ultimate restoration of Ephraim.

The name Yizre’el (Jezreel in the KJV) is the key to this overlooked thread.  In Hosea 1:4 Hosea’s wife bears a son and YHWH names the son “Yizre’el”.  Throughout Hosea the names of Hosea’s sons had special prophetic meaning.  The name “Yizre’el” is a word play on “Yisra’el” (Israel) but has the maning “El sows” or “El scatters”:

4 And YHWH said unto him: Call his name Yizre’el, for yet a little while and I will visit the blood of Yizre’el upon the house of Yahu, and will cause to cease–the kingdom of the House of Yisra’el.
(Hosea 1:4 HRV)

The prophetic meaning of this name is revealed in Hosea chapter 2 where Elohim scatters Yisra’el.

At this point it is absolutely essential to distinguish the two houses of Israel in this book.  In these first two chapters of Hosea it is clear that it is not the House of Judah who are facing this chastisement.  In fact Hosea specifies that while he is punishing the House of Israel, He will have compassion on the House of Judah:

7 But I will have compassion upon the House of Y’hudah, and will save them by YHWH their Elohim: and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, nor by horses, nor by horsemen.
(Hosea 1:7 HRV)

By contrast the House of Israel (Ephraim) will lose their identity as the people of YHWH.  His second and third sons are named “Lo-Ruchmah” (“not compassioned”) and “Lo-Ammi” (“Not My People”).

Finally YHWH tells us that at a time when the number of the descendants of Israel is as the “as the sand of the sea,  which cannot be measured nor numbered.” (Hosea 2:1 (1:10)) that this group known as Lo-Ammi “Not My People”  will come to be known as “Sons of the Living El.”

In other words these people would realize that they are not Gentiles after all, but part of the House of Israel.

We read of this realization in the Apocrypha in the book of Baruch:

… but in the land of their captivities they shall remember themselves. And shall know that I am YHWH their Elohim: for I will give them a
heart, and ears to hear: And they shall praise me in the land of their captivity, and think upon my name, And return from their stiff neck,
and from their wicked deeds: for they shall remember the way of their fathers, which sinned before YHWH. And I will bring them again into the land which I promised with an oath unto their fathers, Avraham, Yitzchak, and Ya’akov, and they shall be masters of it: and I will increase them, and they shall not be diminished. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them to be their Elohim, and they shall be my people: and I will no more drive my people of Israel out of the land that I have given them.
(Barukh (Baruch) 2:30-35)

Romans 9 begins the contrast of the “Jews” and “Gentiles” by quoting Hosea 2:25(23); 2:1 (1:10) in Rom. 9:25-26.

23 And poured forth His mercy upon the vessels of mercy, that were prepared to Eloah to glory,
24 Which we are … the called; not only from the Jews, but also from the Goyim.
25 Thus also He said in Hoshea: I will call those who were not My people, My people: and to whom I have not shown mercy, I will show mercy.
26 For it will be, [that] in the place where they were called, Not my people: there they will be called, sons of the Living Eloah. (Hosea 2:1 (1:10); 2:25 (23))
27 And Yesha’yahu proclaimed concerning the B’nai Yisra’el, that even though the number of the B’nai Yisra’el should be like the sand that is in the sea, a remnant of them would be saved.
(Romans 9:23-27 HRV)

If we look up the context of the people “which were not my people” which he calls “my people” in Hosea we find that they are the “children of Israel”:

1 (1:10) Yet, the number of the children of Yisra’el shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered. And it shall come to pass that, instead of that which was said unto them, You are not My people: it shall be said unto them, You are the children of the living El.
(Hosea 2:1 (1:10))

as opposed to “the children of Judah”:

2 (1:11) And the children of Y’hudah and the children of Yisra’el shall be gathered together, and they shall appoint themselves one head, and shall go up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Yizre’el.
(Hosea 2:2 (1:11))

So if Paul is quoting Hosea in context and contrasting Jews and Gentiles (Rom. 9:24) using Hosea 2:1-2 (1:10-11) then the “Jews” of Rom. 9:24 are the “Children of Judah” of Hosea 2:2 (1:11) and the “Gentiles” of Rom. 9:24 are the  “children of Israel” of Hosea 2:1 (1:10).

If this is true then as this contrasting pair advances into Rom. Chapter 11 the two trees are the two Houses.  This prophecy parallels the two “sticks” prophecy of Ezekiel 37 (note that the word STICK in Ezek. 37 is ETZ which also means “tree”). There is much more I could say about this amazing prophecy when I am permitted to do so.

16 And if the first is Set-Apart, the lump of dough is also: and if the root is Set-Apart, the branches [are] also.
17 And if some branches were broken off, and you who are a wild olive [tree], were grafted into their place and became partakers of the root and of the oil of the olive [tree],
18 Do not boast against the [natural] branches. But if you boast, you are not bearing the root, but the root bears you!
19 And perhaps you should say of the branches that were broken off, I will be grafted in their place.
20 These [matters] are beautiful. They were broken off because they did not have trust, but you stand, by trust. Do not be exalted in your mind, but fear:
21 For if Eloah did not spare the natural branches, perhaps He will also not spare you.
22 See then the gentleness and the harshness of Eloah: upon those who fell, harshness, but upon you, gentleness, if, you remain in the gentleness. And if not, you will also be broken off.
23 And those, if they do not remain in their lack of trust, also will be grafted in: for Eloah is able to graft them in again.
24 For if you, who are from the olive [tree] that was wild by your nature, were cut off and were grafted–contrary to your nature–into the good olive [tree], how much more then, those, if they be grafted in their natural olive [tree]?
25 For I want you to know this mystery, my brothers, so that you will not be wise in the thought of your nefesh: that blindness of the heart, in part, has happened to Yisra’el until the fullness of the Goyim should come,
26 And then all Yisra’el will have Life. Thus it is written, From Tziyon a Deliverer will come, and turn iniquity from Ya’akov.
27 And then they will have the covenant that is from Me, when I forgive them their sins. (Isaiah 59:20-21; 27:9)
(Romans 11:16-27)

The Aramaic for the phrase “fullness of the Goyim” (Rom. 11:25) could also be translated “multitude of nations” as we  read the blessing of Yoseph in Genesis:

18 And Yosef said unto his father, Not so, my father, for this is the firstborn: put your right hand upon his head.
19 And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it. He also shall become a people, and he also shall be great. Howbeit, his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations.
20 And he blessed them that day, saying, By you shall Yisra’el bless, saying, Elohim make you as Efrayim and as M’nasheh, and he set Efrayim before M’nasheh.
(Gen. 48:18-20 HRV)

The uncultivated olive tree in Romans 11 is clearly therefore Ephraim and the cultivated olive tree is clearly that of Judah. This prophecy tells us that branches from the tree/stick of Ephraim will be broken off and grafted into the tree/stick of Judah, are to be fed by the root of the tree/stick of Judah and are not to boast against the natural branches (Jews).”

Romans 11 speaks to the branches from the House of Israel being grafted into the House of Judah.  The branches from Ephraim are directed to be fed by the root of the tree which represents the House of Judah.  It important to note that there are two trees, one representing the House of Israel and one representing the House of Judah… two different trees have two different roots… the branches from Ephraim are to be fed by the root of the House of Judah as opposed to the root of the House of Israel.

Romans 11 does discuss this stage of the restoration, but it also tells us that an even more powerful stage will involve Judah being grafted back into its own olive tree:

And if their stumbling became riches for the world, and their loss, riches to the Goyim:how much more therefore,their fullness?
(Rom. 11:12 HRV)

For if their reprobation was reconciliation to the world, how much more therefore,their return, but life that is from among the dead?
(Rom. 11:15 HRV)

23 And those, if they do not remain in their lack of trust, also will be grafted in: for Eloahis able to graft them in again.
24 For if you, who are from the olive [tree] that was wild by your nature, were cut off and were grafted–contrary to your nature–into the good olive [tree], how much more then,those, if they be grafted in their natural olive [tree]?
(Rom. 11:23-24 HRV)

Paul says here: You think the restoration of Ephraim is great, wait until you see the restoration of Judah!

In Romans 11 we learn that this restoration of Judah:

8 Thus it is written: Elohim gave them a blinding spirit, and eyes that they might not examine, and ears that they might not hear, until this very day. (Deut. 29:4; Isa. 29:10)
9 And David again said, Let their table be a snare before them, and their reward a stumbling stone.
10 Let their eyes be darkened that they not see, and their back always be bowed. (Ps. 69:23-24 (22-23) Is. 29:9-10)

11 Now I say, Have they stumbled so as to fall? Absolutely not! But in their stumbling, Life, has come to the Goyim, for their jealousy. (Deut.32:21)
12 And if their stumbling became riches, for the world, and their loss, riches to the Goyim, how much more therefore, their fulness?
(Rom. 11:8-12 HRV)

Paul is here recalling the apostasy and restoration of the House of Judah as prophesied in Isaiah 29:9-10:

9 Stupify yourselves and be stupid! Blind yourselves, and be blind! you are drunken, but not with wine, that stagger, but not with strong drink.
10 For YHWH has poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and has closed your eyes; thhe prophets, and your heads, the seers, has He covered.
(Isaiah 29:9-10 HRV)

This apostasy of Judah is resolved in this prophecy of Isaiah where we read of a restoration of the House of Judah:

18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of a book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness.
(Isaiah 29:18 HRV)

This is why I say that we have neglected the Word. We have neglected the Tanak. We have been given a last days gift of a restoration of much of the original Hebrew and Aramaic of the so-called “New Testament” but we have neglected this gift as well. We have also had many books restored to us in the “Apocrypha” and especially the Book of Enoch, and we have neglected those also.

We have neglected the words of Enoch the prophet wrote millennia ago:

But when they write down truthfully all my words in their languages, and do not change or diminish ought from my words but write them all down truthfully –all that I first testified concerning them. Then, I know another mystery, that books will be given to the righteous and the wise to become a cause of joy and uprightness and much wisdom. And to them shall the books be given, and they shall believe in them and rejoice over them, and then shall all the righteous who have learnt therefore all the paths of uprightness be recompensed.’
(1Enoch 104:10-13)

And this is why I set up new Scripture Nexus site, because I have been directed to begin putting many of these texts which I have spent my adult life collecting, online in Hebrew (or Aramaic) and English interlinear keyed to Strong’s word numbers. (We have already posted Hebrew Matthew Chapter 1 (DuTillet, Munster and Shem Tob, a fragment of Hebrew Mark, Hebrew John 1:1-13, the Judaikon (Jewish version of Matthew) marginal notes and 1Enoch Chapter 6)

The Book of Tobit Unveiled

The Book of Tobit Unveiled
by
James Scott Trimm

One of the most delightful narratives in the collection known as “The Apocrypha” is the Book of Toviyah (Tobit). The Book of Toviyah is the account of Toviyah a righteous Ephraimite of the Tribe of Naphtali, and his father Toviel, both living in the Assyrian exile which followed the deportation by Sargon II in 721 B.C.E. (2Kn. 17:1-6). Toviel refused to participate in the rank idolatry of his brothers, and continued to send tithes to Jerusalem. He was especially charitable, diligent in tithing and almsgiving. He hosted a feast in honor of Shavuot, and sent his son Toviyah into the streets to bring a poor Israelite to feast with them (perhaps inspiring Yeshua’s parable). He risked his life, position and fortune to bury poor Israelites murdered and left unburied in the streets. Despite his righteousness, Toviel was blinded when bird droppings landed in his eyes.

At this same time, far away in Media, there is a certain woman named Sarah who has married seven husbands, all seven of whom died, having been killed by the demon Ashmodai before the marriage could be consummated (perhaps inspiring the question about a woman who had lost seven husbands which a certain Sadducee asked Yeshua in Mk. 12:20-22). The angel Raphael, disguised as a man, is sent by Elohim to heal Toviel and free Sarah from Ashmodai’s oppression.

Toviel sends his son Toviyah to Media to collect some money that is owed to him there. A certain Azaryah joins Toviyah, claiming to be from one of his kinsmen, but in reality he is Raphael in disguise. When they arrive in Media, Raphael introduces Toviyah to Sarah, and the two of them are married. With Raphael’s help the demon is eradicated, and the marriage is consummated.

Toviyah returns with his bride and Raphael helps him to heal his father’s blindness. Raphael then identifies himself as an angel and returns to the heavens.

This book appears in the Greek Septuagint, the Aramaic Peshitta and the Latin Vulgate.

Five fragmentary copies of Tobit have been found among the Dead Sea Scrolls, one in Hebrew and four in Aramaic.

The Book of Tobit has come down to us in many versions and revisions, which widely diverge from each other as to their details.

Tobit comes to us in a long version (Codex Siniaticus; Old Latin) and a short version (Codecies A, B and V, Latin Vulgate). There is also a variation between a 3rd person version (Latin Vulgate) and a 1st person version (Codex Siniaticus, Old Latin).

There is also another late Greek version which combines elements of the long and short versions and is in the 1st person (Codecies 44, 106 & 107 and the Aramaic Peshitta).

Scripture Nexus has had great success in tracking down Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts for Tobit.

To begin with there are the fragmentary copies found at Qumran mentioned above in Hebrew and Aramaic.

The fragmentary Hebrew copy found at Qumran (4Q200) preserves the following fragments: 3:6, 10-11; 4:3-9; 5:2; 10:7-9; 11:10-14; 12:20-13:4; 13:13-14, 18; 14:1-3.

Other, more complete Hebrew texts of Tovi have come to us from the middle ages:

Munster Tobit – First published in Constantinople in 1516 and re-published by Sebastian Munster in Basel in 1516. (This is the same Munster who published the original Hebrew texts of Matthew and Hebrews as well). This version appears in the following manuscript sources:

Biblioteque Nationale Paris; Hebrew Ms. No. 1251

Cairo Geniza Tobit (T-S A 45.26) (c. 1200 C.E.)
Two fragments covering 5:17-6:13 & 9:6-11:15

Fagius Tobit – First published in Constaninople in 1517 and re-published by Paul Fagius in 1542.

British Museum Add. 11,539 – 13th Century Hebrew ms. of Tobit.

There is also a Hebrew text of Tobit which was extracted from a midrash.

A number of Aramaic copies of Tobit are also available.

The four fragmentary copies found at Qumran (4Q196, 4Q197, 4Q198 & 4Q199) preserve the following passages: 1:17, 19-22; 2:3, 10-11; 3:5, 9-15, 17; 4:2, 5, 7, 21-5:1, 9; 6:6-7, 13-7:5, 13; 12:1, 18-14:3, 7.

Another, more complete Aramaic copy has come to us from the middle ages:

Oxford, Hebrew Ms. Bodeleian 2339 (which is actually Aramaic rather than Hebrew)

There is also the Peshitta Aramaic version, but for reasons discussed below, we know it was translated from the Greek.

Bodeleian 2339 is a short version in the 3rd person. Jerome had his Jewish assistant translate an Aramaic copy of Tobit into Hebrew so that Jerome could then translate it into Latin. This Aramaic version may be a representative of the same Aramaic version which Jerome used for the Latin Vulgate.

Munster is in the first person. The copies found at Qumran (both Hebrew and Aramaic are in the first person and follow the long version.

In just the first two verses I quickly found evidence that the Munster Hebrew text of Tobit is a representative of the original Hebrew and that the Greek is a translation from it.

In Tobit, 1:1 the name “Aduel” appears in the Greek text while in Munster’s Hebrew the name is “Ariel”. The Hebrew letters corresponding to “d” and “r” look very much alike in Hebrew and the Greek translator must have mistaken the “r” (r) for a “d” (d) (“Ariel” is a common Hebrew name, while “Aduel” is not).

In Tobit 1:2 The Greek reads “from Thisbe”. A Note in the Oxford annotated version says “Thisbe is unidentified” which is a nice way of saying “there is no such place”. However the Hebrew does not have “from Thisbe, a city of Naftali” but MITUSHBI IR NAFTALI “an inhabitant of Naftali”. The Greek translator must have been unfamiliar with the Hebrew word MITUSHBI (מתושבי) (Strong’s 8453) (“an inhabitant”) instead he took the “M” as the Hebrew prepositional-prefix meaning “from” and the T-SH-B-I to refer to “Thisbe”” (a Greek name). The Peshitta version of Tobit gives itself away as a translation from the Greek because it has “Aduel” in 1:1 and “Thisbe” in 1:2.

There are many passages in the Ketuvim Netzarim which seem to refer back to statements in the Book of Tobit.

For example when Ya’akov says:

“Behold, the hire of the laborers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.”
(James 5:4 KJV)

He may well be alluding to Toviel’s advice to his son Toviyah:

“Let not the wages of any man, which hath wrought for thee, tarry with thee, but give him it out of hand: for if thou serve God, he will also repay thee: be circumspect my son, in all things thou doest, and bewise in all thy conversation.” (Tobit 4:14 KJV)

When Yochanan states in Revelation:

“And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.” (Rev. 8:2 KJV)

We may gain some insight into who these angels were from Toviyah:

“I am Raphael, one of the seven holy angels, which present the prayers of the saints, and which go in and out before the glory of the Holy One.”
(Tobit 12:15 KJV)

Yochanan’s description of the New Jerusalem in Revelation:

“And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, unto the Lord our God:…
And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;:
The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.: And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.”
(Rev. 19:1; 21:19-21 KJV)

Certainly recalls Toviyah’s similar description:

“And the streets of Jerusalem shall be paved with beryl and carbuncle and stones of Ophir. And all her streets shall say, Alleluia; and they shall praise him, saying, Blessed be God, which hath extolled it for ever.”
(Tobit 13:17-18 KJV)

Of course Yeshua’s “Golden Rule” “Whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them” (Mt. 7:12 HRV) has long been recognized as a positive restatement of Hillel’s statement “What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor” (b.Shabbat 31a) but many are unaware that even earlier this wise saying had been passed from Toviel to his son Toviyah “that which you hate to be done to you, do not you to others” (Tobit 4:15 HRV).

The Book of Toviyah can give us a great deal of insight into our understanding of the Ketuvim Netzarim (Writings of the Nazarenes – The so-called “New Testament”). Work is currently underway at Scripture Nexus on an Interlinear Hebrew/English Tobit keyed to Strong’s Word numbers.

But when they write down truthfully all my words in their languages, and do not change or diminish ought from my words but write them all down truthfully –all that I first testified concerning them. Then, I know another mystery, that books will be given to the righteous and the wise to become a cause of joy and uprightness and much wisdom. And to them shall the books be given, and they shall believe in them and rejoice over them, and then shall all the righteous who have learnt therefore all the paths of uprightness be recompensed.’
(1Enoch 104:10-13)

Enoch was speaking of this generation. I have been given several projects that will put more of the Word of YHWH into the hands of the people, with online interlinear texts etc. There is much work to be done, and less time than ever in which to get it done.

The time is near at hand in which “the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.” (Isaiah 29:18)

Introducing Scripture Nexus

I have asked you recently if you would like to see texts like Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts of “New Testament” books, and books like the Aramaic Book of Enoch online in interlinear form keyed to Strong’s word numbers. We have been given a last days gift of a restoration of much of the original Hebrew and Aramaic of the so-called “New Testament” but we have neglected this gift. I have been given several projects that will put more of the Word of YHWH into the hands of the people, with online interlinear texts etc. One of these is to put the recovered Hebrew manuscripts of “New Testament” books online with interlinear English and Strong’s word numbers. The time is near at hand in which “the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.” (Isaiah 29:18) There is much work to be done, and less time than ever in which to get it done.

Today I am unveiling Scripture Nexus, the website where all of this will happen! Right now it is very utilitarian and little material is up. But as time passes it will be filled with more and more useful resources. so keep watching at https://scripturenexus.com

Getting Started: DuTillet Matthew Chapter 1

I told you recently that the time has come for us to get even more serious about the restoration of the House of Judah. We have been given a last days gift of a restoration of much of the original Hebrew and Aramaic of the so-called “New Testament” but we have neglected this gift. I have been given several projects that will put more of the Word of YHWH into the hands of the people, with online interlinear texts etc. One of these is to put the recovered Hebrew manuscripts of “New Testament” books online with interlinear English and Strong’s word numbers. The time is near at hand in which “the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.” (Isaiah 29:18) There is much work to be done, and less time than ever in which to get it done.

Today I am sharing with you the Hebrew/English Interlinear text of Matthew Chapter 1 from the DuTillet Hebrew manuscript, keyed to Strong’s word numbers. I am working on a better method to get this work up online as it is completed, on a dedicated website. Meanwhile, this is a sample of the concept:

But when they write down truthfully all my words in their languages, and do not change or diminish ought from my words but write them all down truthfully –all that I first testified concerning them. Then, I know another mystery, that books will be given to the righteous and the wise to become a cause of joy and uprightness and much wisdom. And to them shall the books be given, and they shall believe in them and rejoice over them, and then shall all the righteous who have learnt therefore all the paths of uprightness be recompensed.’
(1Enoch 104:10-13)
