Text Commentary

1The last 1 Lit. ‘other’. waters that you saw, darker than all that had been before them – those waters that came after the gathering together of the twelve other waters concern the whole world. 2For the Most High made a separation at the beginning, 2 The phrases ‘gathering together’ and ‘make a separation’ recall the language of Gen. i. 7 and 10 . because he alone knows what will happen. 3As for the enormities and impious deeds that would be committed before him, he foresaw six kinds of them. 4And as for the good deeds of the righteous to be done before him, he foresaw six kinds of them also, apart from what he himself would do at the consummation of the age. 5That is why there were not black waters mixed with black, nor bright with bright; 3 This, as it stands, is obscure. What is clear, however, is that the black waters of the ‘consummation’ and the bright waters that follow are to be understood as distinct from the previous alternations of black and bright waters in the course of world history. for it is the consummation.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘other’.

2 The phrases ‘gathering together’ and ‘make a separation’ recall the language of Gen. i. 7 and 10 .

3 This, as it stands, is obscure. What is clear, however, is that the black waters of the ‘consummation’ and the bright waters that follow are to be understood as distinct from the previous alternations of black and bright waters in the course of world history.
