Text Commentary

1Now when he had said this, Jacob embraced his father: he kissed his mouth and wept. 2Our father Isaac fixed his eyes on him 1 Lit. ‘gave him a sign by winking with his eyes’. and motioned to him to be silent. 2 Boh. adds a request from Abraham asking the Lord to remember his son. 3Our father Isaac said to the Lord, Remember my beloved Jacob. 4The Lord said to him, My power shall be with him; and when the time comes and I become man and die and rise from the dead on the third day, I will put your name in everyone's mind, and they will invoke you as their father. 3 Boh. omits the Christological reference and has a more detailed promise for Jacob only. 5Isaac said to Jacob, My beloved son, this is the last commandment I give you to-day: keep a sharp eye on yourself. 6Do not dishonour 4 Lit. ‘afflict’. the image of God; for what you do to the image of man, you do to the image of God, and God will do it to you too in the place where you will meet him. 7,8This is the beginning and the end. Now when he had said this, our Lord brought his soul out of his body, and it was white as snow. 9He greeted it: he set it on the chariot with him: he took it up into the heavens, with the seraphim making music before him, and all the angels and the saints. 10He freely granted him the good things of his kingdom for ever, and all the requests our father Abraham had asked of the Lord he freely granted him as a covenant for ever.
