In the Hebrew Book of Enoch, we are told that the Prince of Wisdom and the Prince of Understanding were committed to Enoch after he was taken by God. These two princes of God’s Kingdom instructed Enoch in the wisdom of heavenly things and earthly things, in the wisdom of this world and of the world to come:
“R. Ishmael said: Metatron, the Prince of the Presence, said to me: All these things the Sacred One – may He be blesssed” – made for me: He made me a throne, similar to the Splendid Throne, He spread over me a splendid curtain of brilliant appearance, of beauty, grace, and compassion, similar to the curtain of the Splendid Throne, and on it all kinds of lights in the universe were fixed. He placed it at the door of the Seventh Hall and seated me on it. The herald went out into every heaven, and said, ‘This is Metatron, My servant. I have made him a prince and a ruler over all the princes of My Kingdom and over all the inhabitants of heaven, with the exception of the eight great princes, the honored and revered ones who are called Yahweh, by the name of their King. Every angel and every prince who has something to say in My Presence will go into his presence and shall speak to him instead. Every command that he gives you in My name, you are to observe and carry out. FOR I HAVE COMMITTED THE PRINCE OF WISDOM AND THE PRINCE OF UNDERSTANDING TO INSTRUCT HIM IN THE WISDOM OF HEAVENLY THINGS AND EARTHLY THINGS, IN THE WISDOM OF THIS WORLD AND OF THE WORLD TO COME. Furthermore, I have set him over all the treasures of the places of Araboth and over all the stores of life that I have in the high heavens’ ” (3 Enoch 10).
