The Second Book of Enoch presents itself as a work of biblical Enoch from Genesis, who was caught up into heaven to see the visions of God’s realm. This book was not included in the Bible. Most scholars believe that its text was written by a Jewish author around 1st-3rd century CE. The value of 2 Enoch is not so much theological, but rather historical. It relates ancient Jewish lore, in this particular section, the lore of the Creation Story.
On the sixth day, I commanded my wisdom to create man from seven parts: one, his flesh from the earth; two, his blood from the dew; three, his eyes from the sun; four, his bones from stone; five, his intelligence from the swiftness of the angels and clouds; six, his veins and his hair from the grass of the earth; seven, his soul from my breath and from the wind. 11. And I gave him seven natures: to the flesh hearing, the eyes for sight, to the soul smell, the veins for touch, the blood for taste, the bones for endurance, for the intelligence of enjoyment. 12. I conceived a saying, I created man from invisible (spiritual) and from visible (physical) nature, of both are his death and life and image, he knows speech like some created thing, small in greatness and again great in smallness, and I placed him on earth, a second angel, honorable, great and glorious, and I appointed him as a ruler to rule on earth and to have my wisdom, and there was none like him on earth among all of my existing creatures. 13. And I appointed him a name, from four ends, from the east, from the west, from the south, from the north, and I appointed for him four special stars, and I called his name Adam, and showed him two ways, the light and the dark, and I told him: 14. This is good, and that bad, that I should learn whether he has love towards me, or hatred, that it be clear which in his kind would love me. 15. For I have seen his nature, but he has not seen his own nature, therefore through not seeing he will sin worse. And I said after sin what is there but death? 16. And I put sleep into him and he fell asleep. And I took from his side, and created him a wife, that death should come to him by his wife, and I took his last word and called her name mother, that is to say, Eva (Eve).
Chapter 31: 1. Adam has life on earth, and I created a garden in Eden in the east, that he should observe the covenant and keep the commandments. 2. I made the heavens open to him, that he should see the angels singing the song of victory and the light that does no go dim. 3. And he was in paradise for all time, and the devil understood that I wanted to create another world, because Adam was lord on earth, to rule and control it. 4. The devil is the evil spirit of the lower places, as a fugitive, he made Sotona from the heavens as his name was Satanail (Satan), thus he became different from the angels, but his nature did not change, his intelligence as far as his understanding of righteous and sinful things remained the same. 5. And he understood his judgment and the sin which he had sinned before, therefore he conceived thoughts against Adam, in such form he entered and seduced Eva (Eve), but did not touch Adam. 6. But I cursed ignorance, but what I had blessed previously, those I did not curse, I cursed not man, nor the earth, nor other creatures, but only man’s evil fruit, and his works. Chapter 32: 1. I said to him: Earth you are, and into the earth whence I took you from shalt go, and I will not destroy you, but send you back from where I took you. 2. Then I can again receive you at My second presence. 3. And I blessed all my creatures visible (physical) and invisible (spiritual). And Adam was five and a half hours in paradise. 4. And I blessed the seventh day, which is the Sabbath, on which he rested from all his works. (2 Enoch 30:10-32:4)
