Text Commentary

1And I saw another mountain 1 Eth.I EKNP1 Gk.a Aram. ‘other mountains’. on which there were trees, 2 Gk.a ‘and on them there were groves of trees’; Aram. ‘and also on them I saw trees’. and there flowed out water, and there flowed out 3 water, and there flowed out: GT2UD′ Gk.a om.; AC′ om. ‘and there flowed out’; MQ defective. from it 4 from it (the mountain?): so Eth., but might perhaps also be translated ‘from them’; Gk.a ‘from them’. as it were 5 as it were: Gk.a om. a nectar whose name is styrax and galbanum. 2And beyond this mountain 6 D′ Gk.a Aram. ‘these mountains’. I saw another mountain, and on it there were aloe trees, 7 and on it … aloe trees: Gk.a om., but has instead ‘to the east of the ends of the earth’. and those trees were full of a fruit which is like an almond and is hard. 8 and those trees … hard: Gk.a ‘and all the trees were full immediately (?) in the likeness of almonds’. Only the latter part of Aram. can be clearly read, ‘… and it is like the husks of (or ‘the bark of’) …’: in the Aramaic original underlying Gk.a the word for ‘fruit’ may have been confused with the word for ‘thereupon, immediately’. 3And when they take 9 So Eth., but corrupt for ‘crush’ (Gk.a Aram.). this fruit, it is better than any fragrance. 10 Gk.a is partially corrupt, ‘When they crush it; therefore it is more fragrant than any fragrance’.
