Text Commentary

1And I said, And where does the sun begin its labours after the cock crows? 2And the angel said to me, Listen, Baruch. All the things I showed you are in the first and second heaven; and in the third heaven the sun passes through and gives brightness to the world. 3But wait and you shall see the glory of God. And while I was talking with him, I saw the bird, and it appeared in front, and it grew smaller and smaller, and then returned to its full size. 4And behind the bird 1 Lit. ‘this’. I saw the shining sun, and the angels with it drawing it, and a crown on its head – a sight too brilliant for our eyes to look upon. 5And as soon as the sun shone the phoenix stretched out its wings. And when I beheld such great glory I was reduced to abject terror, and I backed away and hid in the wings of the angel. 6And the angel said to me, Do not be afraid Baruch: only wait and you shall see their setting also.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘this’.
