Text Commentary

1And Sarah recognized something in the way the Prince spoke 1 Lit. ‘And Sarah heard the distinction of the Prince's conversation’. and realized immediately that the speaker was an angel of the Lord. 2So Sarah made signs to Abraham to go outside the door; 2 Lit. ‘to go to the door outside’. and she said to him, My lord Abraham, do you know who this man is? Abraham said, I do not. 3,4And Sarah said, My lord, you remember the three heavenly beings who were our guests in our tent by the oak of Mamre, when you killed the calf without blemish and prepared a meal for them? 5When the meat had been eaten, the calf rose up again and joyfully sucked from its mother. You remember, my lord Abraham, do you not, that they gave us the promise of a child, Isaac? 6This is one of those three holy men. And Abraham said, What you say, Sarah, is true. Praise and glory be to God the Father. 3 Lit. ‘Glory and praise from God and Father’. 7Indeed, when I was washing his feet in the bowl of the washing-basin late this evening, I said to myself, These are the feet of one of the three men that I washed then. 8And later on his tears fell into the basin and turned into precious stones. 9And Abraham took the stones 4 Lit. ‘And he took them’. from the fold of his cloak and gave them to Sarah saying, If you do not believe me, now look at these. 10And Sarah took them and kissed them 5 Or ‘him’. and fondled them, 5 Or ‘him’. saying, Glory be to God who shows his wonders to us. 11You may be certain, my lord Abraham, that we are to receive a revelation about something, whether for evil or for good.
