Text Commentary

1This is the going forth from the body of our father Isaac, the patriarch, on the twenty-fourth of the month Mesore. 1 See p. 427, n. 1. Boh. adds a reference to Abraham's death on the same day and gives Isaac's age as a hundred and eighty years. 2And the day on which his father Abraham offered him as a sacrifice is the eighteenth of Mechir. 2 i.e. 12 February. 3The heavens and the earth were full of the soothing odour of our father Isaac, like choice silver: this is the sacrifice of our father Isaac the patriarch. 4When Abraham offered him as a sacrifice to God, the soothing odour of Isaac's sacrifice went up into the heavens. 5Blessed is every man who performs an act of mercy in the name of these patriarchs, for they will be their sons in the kingdom of the heavens. 6For our Lord has made with them a covenant for ever, that everyone who performs an act of mercy on the day of their commemoration shall be given to them as a son in the kingdom of the heavens for ever. 7And they shall come to the first hour of the thousand years, in accordance with the promise of our Lord, even our God and our Saviour Jesus Christ, through whom every glory is due to him and his good Father and the Holy Spirit, the giver of life to all creation and one in being with the Father and the Son, now and always, for ever and ever. 3 Boh. has a less elaborate form of doxology with no reference to the Holy Spirit. Amen. 4 In Boh. there follows a colophon asking prayer for the scribe, Macarius.
