Why do ancient texts (unavailable to Joseph Smith) agree with the Book of Moses claim that Enoch was clothed with glory?

Moses 7:3 reads:

And it came to pass that I turned and went up on the mount; and as I stood upon the mount, I beheld the heavens open, and I was clothed upon with glory; (emphasis added)

This language is remarkably similar to 2 Enoch 22:8-10

The LORD said to Michael, Take Enoch, and extract (him) from the earthly clothing. And anoint him with the delightful oil, and put (him) into the clothes of glory. . . . And I gazed at myself, and I had become like one of the glorious ones, and there was no observable difference. (emphasis added)

What are the odds the same language would appear in 2 Enoch found long after the Book of Moses? Where did Joseph find out about this?
