The Watchers

The Watchers
There are several theories and legends pertaining to the concept and origin of Fallen Angels. The , describes the fall of a group of angelic renegades known as "the Watchers"  .


Shemhazai, an angel of high rank, led a sect of angels in a descent to earth to instruct humans in righteousness. Their mission lasted for a few centuries, but soon the soldiers/missionaries/angels became corrupted in their lusting after human females. After lusting, the fallen angels instructed the women in magic and conjuring, mated with them, and produced offspring, who would later be referred to as the Nephilim. This activity was apparently in direct contradiction to their orders

Genesis 6:2
the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. [See ]


1 Enoch 6:1-7 " In those days, when the children of man had multiplied, it happened that there were born unto them handsome and beautiful daughters. And the angels, the children of heaven , saw them and desired them; and they said to one another, 'Come, let us choose wives for ourselves from among the daughters of man and beget us children.' And Semyaz, being their leader, said unto them,'I fear that perhaps you will not consent that this deed should be done, and I alone will become (responsible) for this great sin.' But they all responded to him, 'Let us all swear an oath and bind everyone among us by a curse not to abandon this suggestion but to do the deed.' Then they all swore together and bound one another by (the curse) And they were altogether two hundred;"

The fallen angels then went to Enoch to intercede on their behalf with God. The remainder of the book describes Enoch's visit to Heaven in the form of a vision, and his revelations.

Enoch also mentions angels called Grigori, {Grigori is derived from the Greek word  egrḗgoroi  which translates roughly to Watchers} the Grigori are similar to the Watchers. Their leader is Satanail. In this account only three angels fall upon the earth to mate with Humans and beget giants.

The Book of Enoch was suppressed in the Early Years of Christianity, {there are varying reasons and or excuses for this. Not the least of which being that Fallen Angels had influenced in one way or another the compilation of the Bible, not the scriptures themselves, but the compilation of what would be deemed acceptable by the Council of Nicea etc...}

Fallen Angels and the Origins of Evil: Why Church Fathers Suppressed the Book of Enoch and Its Startling Revelations

Connections to the concept of a subterranean Hell can also be concluded from the writings of the Book of Enoch.

"But now the giants who are born from the (union of) spirits and the flesh shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, because their dwelling shall be upon the earth and inside the earth. Evil spirits have come out of their bodies. Because from the day that they were created from the holy ones they became the Watchers; their first origin is the spiritual foundation. They will become evil upon the earth and shall be called evil spirits. The dwelling of the spiritual beings of heaven is heaven; but the dwelling of the spirits of the earth, which are born upon the earth, is in the earth."

The Book of Jubilees contains a  similar account of the Watchers .

Jubilees 5:1 And it came to pass when the children of men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born unto them, that the angels of God saw them on a certain year of this jubilee, that they were beautiful to look upon; and they took themselves wives of all whom they
2 chose, and they bare unto them sons and they were giants. And lawlessness increased on the earth and all flesh corrupted its way, alike men and cattle and beasts and birds and everything that walks on the earth -all of them corrupted their ways and their orders, and they began to devour each other, and lawlessness increased on the earth and every imagination of the thoughts of all men .


In the The Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs , the fall of the angels is also mentioned. A brief reference stating that the Watchers "changed the order of their nature." (Naphtali 3:5) And also in Reuben, where Reuben accuses women of seeking to ensnare men.

"Thus they allured the Watchers before the Flood, for as these continually beheld them, they lusted after them and conceived the act in their mind; for they changed themselves unto the shape of men and appeared to them when they were with their husbands; and the women, lusting in their minds after their forms, gave birth to giants, for the Watchers appeared to them as reaching up to heaven."

Reuben account differs in that the Women were physically mating with their husbands and "lusting in their minds after their forms,... for the Watchers appeared to them as reaching up to heaven."



Similarities to The Fallen Angel saga can be found in the ancient Greek drama of the Titans vs. (Titan translated means overreacher which would equate once more to Pride} the Olympians, and are probably an ancient interpretation of a conflict that took place between angelic beings, they labeled Gods.  Greek mythology can be traced back to the ancient Middle Eastern cultures of Mesopotamia, As can the Israelites through Abraham.

In the Greek tale Cronus is the Patriarch of the Titans. Titans fought with Cronus against Zeus and were punished by being banished to Tartarus. Tartarus bears a strong resemblance to the current Concept of Hell.  It is interesting to note that Chaos , the  Creator God is not mentioned in this conflict.

*There is also a similar account of this battle of the Angels in Babylonian/Chaldean mythology in the struggle between Merodach{Marduk} and the dragon Tiamat . Bel-Merodach, was the champion of the "Gods" of heaven, assailing Tiamat, the power of the primeval deep.
