Text Commentary

1And the angel opened to me the gates of heaven, and I saw the holy temple, and the Most High sitting on a throne of glory. 2And he said to me, Levi, To you have I given the blessings of the priest-hood until I come and dwell in the midst of Israel. 3Then the angel brought me down to earth; and he gave me a shield and a sword and said, Take vengeance on Shechem because of Dinah, and I will be with you, for the Lord has sent me. 4(And it was at that time that I killed the sons of Hamor, as it is written in the heavenly tablets.) 5And I said to him, Please, sir, tell me your name, so that I can call on you in time of trouble. 6And he said, I am the angel that intercedes for the nation of Israel, so that no one may destroy them completely, for every evil spirit is ranged against them. 1 Lit. ‘him’. 7And afterwards I woke up, and I blessed the Most High and the angel that intercedes for the nation of Israel and all the righteous.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘him’.
