Text Commentary

1Then will I sound the trumpet from the air, and I will send my Elect One, with a full measure 1 Lit. ‘having in him an equal measure’. of all my 2 J ‘his’. power. 2And he shall summon my people who are despised among the heathen; and those who have reviled them and have had dominion over them in the present age will I burn with fire. 3And I will give those who have poured scorn on me to the scorn of the age to come. 4For I have appointed them as food for the fire of hell and to fly through the air unceasingly in the depths beneath the earth. 3 Here S ends. J continues ‘the worms’ full womb. 5And those who have done right, who have chosen to do my will, who have openly kept my commandments, shall see them there’, and K ‘the wombs filled with the worms fruit. 5And those who have openly kept my commandments shall see in them those who have done right, who have chosen to do my will’. Both J and K continue further ‘6And they shall rejoice with joy at the destruction of the remainder (lit. ‘the men who remain’), who pursued idols and murder. 7For they shall rot in the womb of the cunning worm Azazil, and they shall burn in the fire of Azazil's tongue. 8For I hoped they might come to me, but they would not; and they gave their praises to a foreigner and joined themselves to him, for whom they were not intended, and forsook the mighty Lord (lit. ‘ruler’). XXXII. 1 And so, Abraham, listen and understand (lit. ‘hear and see’). 2Behold, your seventh generation will go out with you into a foreign land, and a foreign people will enslave and afflict them, for one hour of the ungodly age. 3But the people they will be subject to will I judge’. K then adds ‘4And the Lord said this also, Listen, Abraham, to what I have told you about what will happen to your race in the last days. 5And Abraham heard what God had said and pondered it’.
