"The Inside." In the Book of Enoch, one of the fallen angels. Penemue "showed the sons of men the bitter and the sweet and showed them all the secrets of their wisdom. He taught men the art of writing with ink and paper, and through this many have gone astray, from eternity to eternity, and to this day. For men were not created for this, that they should confirm their faith like this, with pen and ink. For men were created no differently from the angels, so that they might remain righteous and pure, and death, which destroys everything, would not have touched them; but through this knowledge of theirs they are being destroyed and through this power death consumes them."
Penemue is also mentioned in the religious text B'reshith Rabba ("Genesis Rabba").
