Text Commentary

1

I 1 Jerusalem is speaking. cried to the Lord in my utter affliction,  To God when sinners assailed. 2 Suddenly there was heard the clamour of war before me: I said, He will listen to me, for I am full of righteousness. 3 I considered in my heart that I was full of righteousness  When I prospered and was rich in children; 4 Their wealth was spread over the whole earth,  Their glory reached the extremity of the earth. 5 They were raised up to the stars: Men said, They will never fall. 6 But they became insolent in their prosperity,  And have no understanding. 2 So Syr.: Gk. has ‘and they brought not (καὶ οὐκ ἤνεγκαν)’, which may be a corruption of καὶ οὐκ ἔγνωκαν, presupposed by Syr. 7 Their sins were in secret,  And I knew it not. 8 Their lawless deeds went beyond those of the heathen before them;  They utterly profaned the sanctuary 3 Lit. ‘holy things’. of the Lord.
