Text Commentary

1And the Lord answered and said to me, With the Most High it does not matter whether a man's life be long or short. 1 Lit. ‘With the Most High account is not taken of much time nor of a few years’. 2For what profit was it to Adam that he lived nine hundred and thirty years, and yet transgressed the command that had been given him. 3The length of time that he lived did not profit him, but brought death and shortened the lives of his descendants. 4Or in what way was Moses the loser in that he lived only a hundred and twenty years, and yet, inasmuch as he obeyed his creator, brought the law to the sons of Jacob and lit a lamp for the nation of Israel?

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘With the Most High account is not taken of much time nor of a few years’.
