Chapter 51[1]http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/fbe/fbe158.htm

(i) Enoch instructs his sons, that they hide not treasures in the earth, but bids them give alms to the poor.

1 STRETCH out your hands to the poor according to your strength.

2 Hide not your silver in the earth.

3 Help the faithful man in affliction, and affliction will not find you in the time of your trouble.

4 And every grievous and cruel yoke that come upon you bear all for the sake of the Lord, and thus you will find your reward in the day of judgement.

5 It is good to go morning, midday, and evening into the Lord’s dwelling, for the glory of your creator.

6 Because every breathing thing glorifies him, and every creature visible and invisible returns him praise.
