We can therefore be confident of the historical narratives of this book as truth. Contained withi, is a detailed description of the world just prior to the Great Flood.

The Book of Enoch
The Richard Laurence translation is the other popular version accepted by most Christian scholars. In I Enoch ,. Enoch is taken up into Heaven, travels through the Heavens, is told secrets of the coming judgment and the messianic age, sees the workings of Heaven, and pronounces judgments upon the wicked angels and sinful man.

The Book of Jasher
Jasher is referred to in Joshua and second Samuel. Its Name in
Hebrew literally means "the upright" or "book of record", The most
important value of this book is the large quantity of additional detail it gives
to various accounts in the Old Testament This book contains a more detailed
account of the awful circumstances prior to the flood, and of the conduct of
Noah toward the terrified multitude who had assembled about the ark, when the
fatal moment had arrived, and their doom was irrevocably fixed. Also, more of
the history is given in the account of Nimrod; in which is strikingly depicted
the arbitrary and violent character and conduct of his government. The book of
Jasher is fascinating and worth reading with historical details that can be
considered and added to what we know, but not accepted as cannon or inspired by
God so don't live by every word. This copy by Artisan Publishers in one not in
conflict to any scripture and probably the one mentioned in scripture.
The Book of Jubilees
This is a first century commentary on portions of Genesis and
Exodus. It gives an extensive account of the fall of the angels and the dire
consequences of their sins with the daughters of men. Time is counted in
jubilees. The historical record is a historical compliment to what is recorded
in the Bible and heavily related to the Ethiopic text of Enoch 1. An interesting
read for the history but not Canonical literature.
