Text Commentary

1And I saw written on them 1 And I saw … them: so Eth. Aram.; Gk.m ‘Then I saw what was written on them’. that generation upon generation will do wrong 2 that … wrong: Gk.m ‘that one generation [will be] wor[se] than another’; Aram. ‘that [generation] upon generation will do wrong in […] and wrong will be [’; Gk.m adds ‘and then I saw’ (perhaps a duplicate version of the beginning of the verse). until a generation of righteousness shall arise, and wrongdoing shall be destroyed, and sin 3 Aram. ‘violence’. shall depart from the earth, and everything good shall come upon it. 4 and everything … upon it (Ga ‘upon the earth’): Gk.m ‘and good things will come to them upon the earth’; Aram. damaged, but did apparently have ‘to them’. 2And now, my son, go, 5 Gk.m ‘run’. make known to your son Lamech that this child who has been born is truly his son, and this is no lie. 3And when Methuselah had heard the words of his father Enoch – for he showed everything 6 Gk.m om. to him which is secret 7 which is secret: GGaMQTD′ Gk.m ‘in secret’. – he returned, having seen him, 8 he returned, having seen him: GaQ Gk.m om.; D′ om. ‘having seen him’; M ‘he returned and showed them to him’, and similarly G (which is defective). and called the name of that child Noah; for he will comfort the earth after all the destruction. 9 Gk.m ‘And his name was called Noah, comforting the earth after the destruction’.
