Text Commentary

1And I said, Eternal One, 1 JK ‘Pre-existent One’. Mighty One, what is this picture of creation? 2And he said to me, This is my will with regard to what is in the world, and I was pleased with it; and afterwards I gave command to them by my word. 2 Landsman translates ‘This is my will with regard to those who exist in the (divine) world-counsel, and it seemed well-pleasing before my sight, and then afterwards I gave commandment to them through my Word’. Svět may mean either ‘light’ or ‘world’: sovět or s″vět is the normal word for ‘counsel’. 3And everything I had planned to be came into being: it was already pre-figured in this, for all the things and all the people you have seen stood before me before they were created. 4And I said, Mighty and Eternal Ruler, who then are the people 3 Lit. ‘who is this people’. in this picture on this side and on that? 5And he said to me, Those on the left side are the many peoples which have existed in the past, and after you are appointed, 4 Lit. ‘prepared’. some for judgement and restoration, some for vengeance and perdition, until the end of the age. 6And those on the right side of the picture, they are the people set apart for me from the people with Azazil. 7These are the people who are going to spring from you 5 Lit. ‘These are they whom I prepared to be born from you’. Cp. x. 16. and will be called my people.
