2.02.07.02.04: The Book of the Secrets of Enoch [a.k.a. 2 Enoch] Chapter 45 (from The Forgotten Books of Eden)

Also known as the 2 Enoch


Chapter 45[1]http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/fbe/fbe152.htm

(i) God shows how he does not want from men sacrifices, nor burnt-offerings, but pure and contrite hearts

1 WHOEVER hastens to make offering before the Lord’s face, the Lord for his part will hasten that offering by granting of his work.

2 But whoever increases his lamp before the Lord’s face and make not true judgement, the Lord will not increase his treasure in the realm of the highest.

3 When the Lord demands bread, or candles, or flesh (sc. cattle), or any other sacrifice, then that is nothing; but God demands pure hearts, and with all that only tests the heart of man.
