The Ancient City of Enoch. Its earliest name was the Akkadian Unu-ki or Unuk, Meaning “the place of the settlement,” If I am right in identifying Unuk with the Enoch of Genesis, the city built by Cain. Unuk must be regarded as having received its earliest culture from Eridu, since Enoch was the son of Jared, according to Genesis iv, and Jared or Irad (Genesis iv.) is the same word as Eridu. The local god of Erech, was not Enki, the god of the river and sea, but Ana, the sky. Thus whereas at Eridu the present creation was believed to have originated out of the water, the sky is the primeval goddess Zikum or Zigara, mother alike of Enki and the other gods, at Erech, the sky was itself the god and the creator of the visible universe. The two cosmologies are antagonistic to one another and produced manifold inconsistencies in the later syncretic age of Babylonian religion.
The text of the Book of Genesis says Enoch lived 365 years before he was taken by God. The text reads that Enoch “walked with God: and he was no more; for God took him” (Gen 5:21–24), which some Christians interpret as Enoch’s entering Heaven alive.
Enoch is the subject of many Jewish and Christian traditions. He was considered the author of the Book of Enoch and also called Enoch the scribe of judgment. The New Testament has three references to Enoch from the lineage of Seth (Luke 3:37, Hebrews 11:5, Jude 1:14–15).
