Text Commentary

1And I said to the angel, Why 1 So JK: S ‘whither’. have you brought me now to this place; for I cannot now see, my strength is gone, and I am at the point of death. 2 Lit. ‘I am already weakened, and my spirit is departing from me’. 2And he said to me, Stay by me, and do not be afraid: he whom you will see coming straight towards us with a great and holy voice, 3 So J (‘a great voice of holiness’): S is corrupt; K reads ‘with a great voice, saying, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord’. he is the Eternal One, who has set his love on you. 3,4(But you will not actually see him 4 Lit. ‘But himself you will not see’. ). Do not let your spirit fail, 5 JK add ‘for the shouting’ (i.e. because of the paean of praise). for I am with you to strengthen you.
