Sorry for the gender confusion.
Technically XES is only a prince.
1 The men took me on to the fifth heaven (Jupiter-Zeus) and placed me, and there I saw many and countless soldiers, called
Grigori, of human appearance, and their size was greater than that of great giants and their faces withered,
and the silence of their mouths perpetual, and their was no service on the fifth heaven, and I said to the men
who were with me:
2 Wherefore are these very withered and their faces melancholy, and their mouths silent, and wherefore is
there no service on this heaven?
3 And they said to me: These are the Grigori, who with their prince Satanail
rejected the Lord of light, and
after them are those who are held in great darkness on the second heaven
, and three of them went down on to
earth from the Lord’s throne, to the place Ermon, and broke through their vows on the shoulder of the hill
Ermon and saw the daughters of men how good they are, and took to themselves wives, and befouled the
earth with their deeds, who in all times of their age made lawlessness and mixing, and giants are born and
marvellous big men and great enmity.
4 And therefore God judged them with great judgment, and they weep for their brethren and they will be
punished on the Lord’s great day.
5 And I said to the Grigori: I saw your brethren and their works, and their great torments, and I prayed for
them, but the Lord has condemned them to be under earth till the existing heaven and earth shall end for ever.
6 And I said: Wherefore do you wait, brethren, and do not serve before the Lord’s face, and have not put your
services before the Lord’s face, lest you anger your Lord utterly?
7 And they listened to my admonition, and spoke to the four ranks in heaven, and lo! As I stood with those
two men four trumpets trumpeted together with great voice, and the Grigori broke into song with one voice,
and their voice went up before the Lord pitifully and affectingly.
