Text Commentary

1One day, when I was planing the gods of my father Theran 1 RJK ‘Thara’. and the gods of my brother Naoch, 2 my brother Naoch: RK ‘Nahor’. when I was enquiring who in truth 2the Mighty God is, I, Abraham was doing my duty and devoting myself to the services and sacrifices of my father Thara to his gods of wood, stone, gold, silver, brass, and iron. 3And I went into their temple for the service; and I found the god Marumath by name, who was carved from stone, fallen down at the feet of the god Nachor, 3 So J:RK ‘Nachin’; S ‘Naritsen’. who was of iron. 4,5And when I saw it, I was distressed. I was sure that I, Abraham, could not put him back in his place by myself, for he was a massive lump of stone and heavy. 6So I went and told my father; and he came in to help me. 4 Lit ‘came in with me’. 7And while we were 8lifting him to put him back in his place, his head fell off him; and I was still holding him by the head. 9And when my father saw that Marumath's head had fallen off, he said to me, Abraham. 10And I said, Here am I. 11And he said to me, Bring me the axes and pincers 5 K om. ‘and pincers’. from the house. 12And I brought them to him from the house. And he carved a second Marumath from a second stone without a head, and he put on it the head that had fallen off Marumath; but the rest of Marumath he destroyed. 6 K ‘And he cut the head from a second stone god and fastened it to the god Marumath, who had fallen down; and the head which had fallen off him, and the rest of the second god, he destroyed’.
