Text Commentary

1

Mighty rivers are the power of the Lord, Which carry headlong Those who despise them, 2 And twist their steps, And ruin their fords, 3 And seize their bodies, And destroy their souls; 4 For they are swifter than lightning 1 So H: B ‘lightnings’. And faster. 5 But those who cross them in faith Will not be shaken, 6 And those who walk on them without blemish Will not be perturbed; 7 Because the Lord is a sign in them, And the sign becomes the path of those who cross in the name of the Lord. 8 Put on, therefore, the name of the Most High, and know him, And you will cross without danger, Because the rivers will be obedient to you. 9 The Lord bridged them by his Word, And walked, and crossed them on foot; 10 And his footprints remain on the waters, and have not been obliterated, But are like a piece of wood which is firmly 2 Or ‘in truth’. fixed: 11 On this side and that the waves are lifted up, But the footprints of our Lord Christ remain, 12 And are not effaced, Or obliterated; 13 And a path has been established for those who cross after him, And for those who follow in the steps of his faith, And worship his name. Hallelujah.

Notes:
