Text Commentary

1He was taken up into the heavens to visit the resting-places. 2,3And behold, a host of tormentors came out. The appearance of each one was different; and they were ready to torment the sinners – that is the fornicators, and the harlots, and the catamites, and the sodomites, and the adulterers, and those who have corrupted God's creation, and the magicians, and the sorcerers, and the unrighteous, and the idol-worshippers, and the astrologers, and the slanderers and the double-tongued. 4In short, many are the punishments for all the sins we have mentioned: the unquenchable fire, the outer darkness, the place where there shall be weeping and grinding of teeth, and the worm that does not sleep. 5And it is a terrible thing for you to be brought before the judge, and it is a terrible thing to come into the hands of the living God. 6Woe to all sinful men for whom these tortures and these tormentors are prepared. 7And again afterwards he took me and showed me the place where my fathers Abraham and Isaac were, 1 Lit. ‘the place where my fathers were, Abraham and my father Isaac’. a place that was all light; and they were glad and rejoiced in the kingdom of the heavens, in the city of the beloved. 8And he showed me all the resting-places and all the good things prepared for the righteous, and the things that eye has not seen nor ear heard, and have not come into the heart of men, that God has prepared for those who love him and do his will on earth (for, if they end well, they do his will).

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘the place where my fathers were, Abraham and my father Isaac’.
