Text Commentary

1And he said to me, Look now beneath your feet at the expanse; and consider now the creation foreshadowed of old, the creation on this expanse, and the things that are in it, and the age prepared after it. 2And I looked at the expanse at my feet; and I saw beneath what is on the third heaven and what is in it, and the earth and its fruits, 1 JK ‘and I saw beneath the likeness of a heaven (or ‘under the seventh heaven’) which was with it, and the earth there and its fruit’. and the things on it that move, and the things on it that have breath, and the might of its men, and its spiritual 3uncleanness, and its righteousness; and I saw its lowest parts and the destruction that is in them, and the abyss and its torments. 2 JK ‘and their righteousness, and the beginning of their works; 3and I saw the abyss and its torments, and the lowest parts and the destruction which is in them’. 4I saw there the sea and its islands, and its cattle and its fish, and Leviathan and his realm, and his bed and his caves, and the world which lies above him, and his rollings and the destructions in the world which he causes. 5I saw there the rivers and their risings and their courses. 6And I saw there the garden of Eden, and its fruit, the spring and the river that issues from it, and its groves and their flowers, and those who do what is right. 7,8And I saw in it their food and their peace. 9And I saw there a throng of people, men, women, and children, and half of them were on the right side of the picture, and half of them 3 on the right … half of them: S om. on the left side of the picture.
