Text Commentary

1And he turned round and said to those who had brought nothing, The Lord says to you, Do not be gloomy and weep; and do not leave the race of men alone. 2But inasmuch as they angered me by what they did, go and make them jealous and angry and embittered against a people that is no people, against a people that has no understanding. 3And more – afflict them with caterpillar and maggot, and rust and locust, 〈and〉 hail with flashes of lightening and wrath, and smite them 1 Lit. ‘cut them in two’. See Introduction (pp. 899–900 above). with sword and with death, and their children with demons. 4For they did not heed my voice, neither did they observe my commandments nor do them; but they despised my commandments and my assemblies, 2 Or ‘and my churches’ (Gk. καὶ τω̂ν ἐκκλησίων μου). and insulted the priests who proclaimed my words to them.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘cut them in two’. See Introduction (pp. 899–900 above).

2 Or ‘and my churches’ (Gk. καὶ τω̂ν ἐκκλησίων μου).
