Text Commentary

1Then 1 Gk.a ‘And’. I said, What is the purpose of this blessed land which is completely full of trees and of this accursed valley 2 and of this accursed valley: Gk.a ‘and why is this valley accursed?’ in the middle of them? 2Then Raphael, 3 Raphael: so OP2B′; all other Eth. MSS ‘Uriel’. one of the holy angels who was with me, answered me and said to me, This 4 in the middle … to me, This: Gk.a om. accursed valley 5 valley: Gk.a ‘land’, but Gk.a has probably transliterated the original Semitic word instead of translating it. is for those who are cursed for ever; here will be gathered together all 6 D′ Gk.a add ‘the accursed’. who speak with their mouths against the Lord words that are not fitting and say hard things about his glory. Here they will gather them together, and here will be their place of judgement. 7 Gk.a ‘will be their dwelling’. 3And in the last days there will be the spectacle of the righteous judgement upon them before the righteous for ever, for evermore; here the merciful 8 Gk.a ‘In the last ages, in the days of the true judgement before the righteous for ever, here the impious’. will bless the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King. 9 Gk.a ‘the King of Eternity’. 4And in the days of the judgement on them they will bless him 10 him: Gk.a om. on account of his mercy, according as he has assigned to them their lot. Then I 5myself 11 myself: GMQT1UD′ Gk.a om. blessed the Lord of Glory and I addressed him, 12 and I addressed him: Gk.a ‘and I proclaimed his glory’. and I remembered his majesty, as was fitting. 13 and I remembered … fitting: so Eth., but probably corrupt; Gk.a ‘and I sang his praises in a way befitting his majesty’.
