Text Commentary

1And I answered and said,

Who can be compared with thee, O Lord, in thy goodness? For it is beyond us altogether. 2 Or who can search out thine infinite compassion? 3 Or who can comprehend thine understanding? 4 Or who is able to describe the workings of thy mind? 5 Who among mortals can hope to come near doing any of these things, Unless he is one of those to whom thou art merciful and gracious? 6 For if thou didst not have compassion upon man, Those who are under thy right hand Could not achieve these things – Only those who are called to be among the number thou hast determined. 1 Lit. ‘who are able to be called in the numbers named’. 7 But if we, who are alive, know for what reason we have come, 2 i.e. ‘we have been born’. And submit ourselves to him who brought us out of Egypt, We shall come again 3 i.e. at the resurrection. and remember what is past, And rejoice in what has been. 8 But if we do not know for what reason we have come 2 i.e. ‘we have been born’. And do not recognize the sovereignty of him who brought us out of Egypt, We shall come again 3 i.e. at the resurrection. and regret 4 Lit. ‘desire’. what has been now, And grieve over what is past.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘who are able to be called in the numbers named’.
