Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jude 1:14

_ _ See on Introduction on the source whence Jude derived this prophecy of Enoch. The Holy Spirit, by Jude, has sealed the truth of this much of the matter contained in the book of Enoch, though probably that book, as well as Jude, derived it from tradition (compare Note, see on Jude 1:9). There are reasons given by some for thinking the book of Enoch copied from Jude rather than vice versa. It is striking how, from the first, prophecy hastened towards its consummation. The earliest prophecies of the Redeemer dwell on His second coming in glory, rather than His first coming in lowliness (compare Genesis 3:15 with Romans 16:20). Enoch, in his translation without death, illustrated that truth which he all his life preached to the unbelieving world, the certainty of the Lord’s coming, and the resurrection of the dead, as the only effectual antidote to their skepticism and self-wise confidence in nature’s permanence.

_ _ And EnochGreek, “Moreover, also Enoch,” etc.

_ _ seventh from AdamSeven is the sacred number. In Enoch, freedom from death and the sacred number are combined: for every seventh object is most highly valued. Jude thus shows the antiquity of the prophecies. Compare Note, see on Jude 1:4, “of old.” There were only five fathers between Enoch and Adam. The seventh from Adam prophesied the things which shall close the seventh age of the world [Bengel].

_ _ of these — in relation to these. The reference of his prophecies was not to the antediluvians alone, but to all the ungodly (Jude 1:15). His prophecy applied primarily indeed to the flood, but ultimately to the final judgment.

_ _ cometh — literally, “came.” Prophecy regards the future as certain as if it were past.

_ _ saints — Holy angels (compare Deuteronomy 33:2; Daniel 7:10; Zechariah 14:5; Matthew 25:31; Hebrews 12:22).

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jude 1:14

And of these also — As well as the antediluvian sinners Enoch — So early was the prophecy referred to, Jude 1:4. The seventh from Adam — There were only five of the fathers between Adam and Enoch, 1 Chronicles 1:1-3. The first coming of Christ was revealed to Adam; his second, glorious coming, to Enoch; and the seventh from Adam foretold the things which will conclude the seventh age of the world. St. Jude might know this either from some ancient book, or tradition, or immediate revelation. Behold — As if it were already done, the Lord cometh!

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jude 1:14

And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord (o) cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
