創5:21~24

以諾活到六十五歲,生了瑪土撒拉。以諾生瑪土撒拉之後,與神同行三百年,並且生兒養女。以諾共活了三百六十五歲。以諾與神同行,神將他取去,他就不在世了。(創5:21~24)

            Genesis 5:21-24

Enoch lived sixty-five years, and begot Methuselah. After he begot Methuselah, Enoch walked with God three hundred years, and had sons and daughters.  So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him. (Genesis 5:21-24)

 

          來11:5~6

以諾因著信,被接去,不至於見死,人也找不著他,因為神已經把他接去了;只是他被接去以先,已經得了神喜悅他的明證。人非有信,就不能得神的喜悅;因為到神面前來的人必須信有神。

Hebrews 11:5-6

By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God.  But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is.

 

          猶14~15

亞當的七世孫以諾,曾預言這些人說:「看哪,主帶著他的千萬聖者降臨,要在眾人身上行審判,證實那一切不敬虔的人所妄行一切不敬虔的事,又證實不敬虔之罪人所說頂撞他的剛愎話。」

Jude 14-15

Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints,  to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”

Then Lamech took for himself two wives: the name of one was Adah, and the name of the second was Zillah.  And Adah bore Jabal. He was the father of those who dwell in tents and have livestock.  His brother’s name was Jubal. He was the father of all those who play the harp and flute.  And as for Zillah, she also bore Tubal-Cain, an instructor of every craftsman in bronze and iron. And the sister of Tubal-Cain was Naamah. Then Lamech said to his wives:“Adah and Zillah, hear my voice; Wives of Lamech, listen to my speech! For I have killed a man for wounding me, even a young man for hurting me. If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, then Lamech seventy-sevenfold.” (Genesis 4:19-24)

因為主必親自從天降臨,有呼叫的聲音和天使長的聲音,又有神的號吹響;那在基督裡死了的人必先復活。以後我們這活著還存留的人必和他們一同被提到雲裡,在空中與主相遇。這樣,我們就要和主永遠同在(帖前4:16~17)

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.  Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
