Text Commentary

1

I am a priest of the Lord, And to him I minister as priest, 2 And to him I offer the offering of his thought. 3 For not as the world, Nor as the flesh, is his thought, Nor as those who serve in a fleshly way. 4 The offering of the Lord is righteousness, And purity of heart and lips. 5 Offer your 1 So H: B ‘my’. kidneys without blemish, And let not your bowels afflict another's bowels, And let not your soul afflict another's soul. 6 You shall not acquire a stranger by the blood of your soul, Nor shall you seek to defraud your neighbour, Nor shall you deprive him of the covering of his nakedness. 7 But put on the grace of the ungrudging Lord; 2 Or ‘the Lord who is without envy’. And come to the 3 So H: B ‘his’. paradise, and make yourself a garland from his tree, 8 And put it on your head, and delight in it, And recline on his serenity. 9 And his glory will go before you, And you will receive of his kindness and of his goodness, 4 So H: B ‘grace’. And grow fat in the glory of his holiness. 10 Glory and honour be to his name. Hallelujah.

Notes:

1 So H: B ‘my’.
