Text Commentary

1

As the 〈wind〉 1 The word supplied also means ‘spirit’. moves over the harp, and the strings speak, 2 So does the Spirit of the Lord speak in my members, and I speak by his love. 3 For he destroys anything foreign, And everything is of the Lord. 4 For so it was from the beginning, And will be to the end; 5 That nothing might withstand him, And nothing might rise up against him. 6 The Lord has multiplied the knowledge of himself, 2 Or ‘his knowledge’. And has been zealous that the things should be known which, by his grace, have been given us. 7 And he has given us his praise for his name: Our spirits praise his Holy Spirit. 8 For a stream went out, and became a great and broad river, For it overwhelmed everything, and broke it up, and carried it to the temple; 3 Or ‘and broke up and carried away the temple’. 9 And the restraints of men were not able to restrain it, Nor the skill of those who restrain water; 10 For it came upon the face of the whole earth, And filled everything; 11 And all the thirsty on earth drank, And their thirst was brought to an end and quenched; 12 For the drink was given by the Most High. 13 Blessed, therefore, are the ministers of that drink, Those who have been entrusted with his water: 14 They have refreshed the dry lips, And have raised up the will that was paralysed; 15 And souls that were near to expiring They have held back from death; 16 And limbs that were fallen They have straightened and raised up: 17 They have given strength to their coming, And light to their eyes; 18 For everyone has known them in the Lord, And by means of the waters they lived eternal life. 4 Or ‘And they lived by means of the eternal living waters’. Hallelujah.
