About 4 points of the compass in the Book of Enoch Audio

The 4 points of the compass in the Book of Enoch Audio provide detailed descriptions of the four cardinal points of the compass. These points are North, South, East, and West.

Read: Points of the compass on Wikipedia.

Enoch the Apostle also described the following outstanding features on the earth:

– Seven great mountains.
– Seven great rivers.
– Seven great islands.

Enoch mapped the points of the compass with numbers

It is important to pay attention to the way in which Enoch the Apostle mapped the compass points with numbers. This is an important menu for interpreting the remainder of the Book of Enoch.

This is how the compass points are mapped in the Book of Enoch:

First quarter – East.

Second quarter – South (the Most High will descend there).

Third quarter – diminished – West.

Fourth quarter – North.

The subdivisions of the North of the earth

Pay attention also to the subdivisions of the north. We need to use our knowledge of geography in order to locate these regions.

Is the North Pole the second subdivision?

the first is for human habitation.

the second subdivision contains seas, abysses, forests, rivers, darkness and clouds.

the Garden of Righteousness is found in the third subdivision of the North.

The Erythraean Sea in the Book of Enoch

The Erythraean Sea once included the Gulf of Aden and at times other seas between Arabia Felix and the Horn of Africa.

The Erythraean Sea was used throughout Europe until the 18-19th century.

The name often extended beyond the Gulf of Aden to include the present-day Red Sea, Persian Gulf, and the Indian Ocean as a single maritime area.

The seven great islands of the sea

Enoch also saw seven great islands in the sea. These are the seven continents.

Read about them in a previous article about the seven continents.


Book of Enoch Audio: Chapter 77

The Four Quarters of the World.

1. And the first quarter is called the east, because it is the first:

and the second, the south, because the Most High will descend there, yea, there in quite a special sense will He who is blessed for ever descend.

2. And the west quarter is named the diminished, because there all the luminaries of the heaven wane and go down.

3. And the fourth quarter, named the north, is divided into three parts:

the first of them is for the dwelling of men:

and the second contains seas of water, and the abysses and forests and rivers, and darkness and clouds;

and the third part contains the garden of righteousness.

The seven great mountains of the earth

4. I saw seven high mountains, higher than all the mountains which are on the earth: and thence comes forth hoar-frost, and days, seasons, and years pass away.

The seven great rivers of the earth

5. I saw seven rivers on the earth larger than all the rivers: one of them coming from the west pours its waters into the Great Sea.

6. And these two come from the north to the sea and pour their waters into the Erythraean Sea in the east.

7. And the remaining four come forth on the side of the north to their own sea, 〈two of them〉 to the Erythraean Sea, and two into the Great Sea and discharge themselves there [and some say: into the desert].

The seven great islands of the earth

8. Seven great islands I saw in the sea and in the mainland: two in the mainland and five in the Great Sea.
