[2:10] 1 Enoch, Leonhard Rost writes


“Chapters 12-16 provide more details about Enoch’s role of mediator in the punishment of the fallen angels. Since they constitute an expansion and correction of the corresponding material from the Book of Noah, they must have come later, but they probably still date from the first half of he second century B.C. Chapters 17-19 and 20-36 contain the first and second journeys of Enoch through the various regions of the earth, the heavens, and the underworld, with special emphasis on the dwelling places of the blessed and the places where sinners and fallen angels are punished. These chapters probably belong to the second century B.C. also.”
