Predestination and Election

Notes: I use the Enoch translation by R.H. Charles.
Fragments of this book were found in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Enoch 1:8

But with the righteous He will make peace.  And will protect the elect, And mercy shall be upon them.  And they shall all belong to God, And they shall be prospered, And they shall all be blessed.  And He will help them all, And light shall appear unto them, And He will make peace with them'.

Enoch 48:7-8

And the wisdom of the Lord of Spirits hath revealed him to the holy and righteous; 
For he hath preserved the lot of the righteous, 
Because they have hated and despised this world of unrighteousness, 
And have hated all its works and ways in the name of the Lord of Spirits: 
For in his name they are saved, 
And according to his good pleasure hath it been in regard to their life.

In these days downcast in countenance shall the kings of the earth have become, 
And the strong who possess the land because of the works of their hands, 
For on the day of their anguish and affliction they shall not (be able to) save themselves. 
And I will give them over into the hands of Mine elect: 
As straw in the fire so shall they burn before the face of the holy: 
As lead in the water shall they sink before the face of the righteous, 
And no trace of them shall any more be found.

Enoch 62:8 

And the congregation of the elect and holy shall be sown, 
And all the elect shall stand before him on that day.
