Text Commentary

1,2But as to consolation, I should tell you this. 1 Lit. ‘hear the word’. I was mourning for Zion, and I prayed the Most High for mercy, and I said,3

Will things continue for us as they are to the end? 2 Or (according to other MSS) ‘How long will these things continue for us’. And will these evils come upon us always? 4 And the Mighty One responded 3 Lit. ‘acted’. in the fullness of his mercy, And he spoke to me by way of revelation, 4 Lit. ‘And he revealed to me the word’. So that I might receive consolation; And he showed me visions, So that I should suffer no more anguish; And he made known to me the mystery of the ages, And the advent of the times he showed me.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘hear the word’.

2 Or (according to other MSS) ‘How long will these things continue for us’.

3 Lit. ‘acted’.

4 Lit. ‘And he revealed to me the word’.
