Such imposing literary problems as these chapters do. 16 In fact, state Florentino García Martínez and Eibert J. C. ”17 Yet, commentators disagree as to the nature of these divisions or redactional layers within the text. 14 Milik, Books of Enoch, 139–41. Milik, Books of Enoch, 25. 16 Enoch and the Growth of an Apocalyptic Tradition, 110. 17 ‘The Books of Enoch (1 Enoch) and the Aramaic Fragments from Qumran,’ RevQ 14 (1989): 131–46; esp. 136–37. 23 In spite of what can appear to be a rather fluid narrative, chapters 17–19 still seem to introduce a distinct section of the Book of the Watchers that concerns otherworldly journeys (1 Enoch 17–36).

1 Enoch 17–19, a duplicate version of Enoch’s journey to the divine throne, was then added, suggests 37 38 39 Prophets of Old and the Day of the End, 159. Books of Enoch, esp. 25, 33–35. 1 Enoch, 169. 41 Again, Nickelsburg suggests that 1 Enoch 17–19 was not produced to supplement chapters 12–16, but was secondarily attached to those chapters. 43 I find Nickelsburg’s reconstruction of the development of the Book of the Watchers, especially 1 Enoch 17–19, more convincing than that of Milik. Especially problematic are the lack of transition between 1 Enoch 16:4 and 17:1 and subsequent awkward narrative.

It has long been recognized that the most complete version of 1 Enoch consists of separate, independent works. Scholars have delineated at least five sections, though one should note that the booklets, in turn, have their own complex history of composition and redaction. 1 Enoch as preserved today includes the Book of the Watchers (1 Enoch 1–36), Similitudes of Enoch (1 Enoch 37–71), Astronomical Book (1 Enoch 72–82), Book of Dreams (1 Enoch 83–90) and Epistle of Enoch (1 Enoch 91–108).
