Text Commentary

1And after two days Judah and I went up with our father to Isaac. 2And my grandfather blessed me in words that recalled the visions 1 Lit. ‘blessed me according to all the words of my visions’. I had seen; and he would not come with us to Bethel. 3But when we came to Bethel, my father Jacob saw in a vision about me that I should be their priest before God. 4And he got up early in the morning and paid tithes to the Lord on everything through me. 5,6And we went to Hebron to settle there. And Isaac sent for me repeatedly to instruct me in 2 Lit. ‘to put me in remembrance of’. the law of the Lord, just as the angel of God had shown me. 7And he taught me the law of the priesthood, of sacrifices, of whole-offerings, of first-fruits, of freewill-offerings, and of peace-offerings. 8And each day he continued instructing me and busied himself on my behalf before the Lord. 9And he said, Beware, my son, of the spirit of fornication; for this will persist, and through your descendants it will pollute the sanctuary. 3 Lit. ‘the holy things’. 10So find yourself a wife while you are young, a girl without fault, not worldly minded, and not of foreign 4 Or ‘Philistine’. or of Gentile stock. 11And before you enter the sanctuary, 3 Lit. ‘the holy things’. bathe; and when you offer the sacrifice, wash, and when you finish the sacrifice, wash again. 12 Use only wood from the twelve trees that always have leaves to present your offerings to the Lord by fire, as indeed Abraham taught me. 5 Cp. Jub. xxi. 12. 13And sacrifice to the Lord only clean animals and birds. 14And offer 6 So b: II adds ‘to the Lord’. the choicest of all first-fruits and wine. And every sacrifice you must salt with salt.
