Text Commentary

1And I said, Eternal Mighty One, why hast thou ordained that it should be like this? 2Canst thou not change thy mind? 1 Lit. ‘turn back this revelation’. Landsman translates ‘Wherefore hast thou established that it should be so, and then proclaim the knowledge thereof?’ And he said to me, Listen Abraham: take in what I am telling you; and give me an answer to what I am about to ask you. 3Your father Tera – why did he not pay any attention to what you said and give up his devilish idolatry until his whole house perished with him? 4And I said, Most Eternal, for no other reason than because he would not listen to me; but I did not do as he did. 5And he said, Listen, Abraham, As was your father's light 2 Or ‘counsel’ (so K). in him, and as is your light 2 Or ‘counsel’ (so K). in you, so is the light 2 Or ‘counsel’ (so K). of my will in me: it is ready beforehand for the days that are to come. You will not know them, nor will you see with your own eyes what will happen in them: they are for your descendants. 6Look in the picture.
