Text Commentary

1,2I had six harps 1 Reading ψαλτήϱια for ψαλμούς: cp. Job xxi. 12 (LXX). and a ten-stringed lyre. And every day, after the widows had been fed, I would get up and take the lyre and play it for them, and they would sing. 3And with the harp I would remind them of God, so that they might glorify the Lord. 4And if ever my slave-girls started complaining, I would take the harp up 5and sing of the wages of recompense; and I would put an end to their fault-finding 2 So SV: P adds ‘of the psalm, that is’. and complaints.

Notes:

1 Reading ψαλτήϱια for ψαλμούς: cp. Job xxi. 12 (LXX).

2 So SV: P adds ‘of the psalm, that is’.
