Friday is for Ad Fontes
1 Enoch 49. 1-4 reads:
So wisdom flows like water and glory is measureless before him forever and ever. For his ight is in all the mysteries of righteousness, and oppression will vanish like a shadow having no foundation. The Elect one stands before the Lord of the Spirits; his glory is forever and ever and his glory is unto all generations. In him dwells the spirit of wisdom, the spirit which gives thoughtfulness, the spirit of knowledge and strength, and the spirit of those who have fallen asleep in righteousness. He shall judge the secret things. And no one will be able to utter vain words in his presence. For he is the Elect One before the Lord of the Spirits according to his good pleasure.
What I find interesting is the reference: "He shall judge the secret things" as it is similar to 1 Cor. 4.5, 14.25, and Rom. 2.16 about Jesus judging the secret things of human hearts.
