The prototype of all visionary ascents into heaven in the Hekhalot literature is Enoch. Enoch is said to have put on the robes of the glory of God, which transformed him into a celestial being: "I Enoch had become like one of his God's glorious ones, there was no observable difference." 119 But this is not all, for Enoch also received a secret celestial name, Metatron, and was enthroned in Heaven The Hidden Power Of Everyday Things: A Complete Personology Guide To Your Lifestyle For Each Day Of The Year
