Text Commentary

1And when I heard these words of God I fell prone on the ground and worshipped the Lord and said, My Lord, all-powerful and merciful God, Holy and Righteous One, let not the name that is mindful of thy majesty be blotted out; but renew my life, 1 Lit. ‘convert my soul’. for I am at the point of death and my breath is about to leave my mouth. 2Do not drive me from thy presence, even me, whom thou didst form from the clay of the earth. Do not banish from thy favour him whom thou didst rear. 3And lo, a word concerning you came to me, and the Lord said to me, Since your days were fashioned 2 So Meyer (= figurantur): all MSS are corrupt. you have been created with a love of knowledge: your descendants, therefore, shall never lose the right to serve me.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘convert my soul’.

2 So Meyer (= figurantur): all MSS are corrupt.
