Text Commentary

1(Sa 1) 〈I saw〉 a soul, five thousand angels set over it 〈and〉 guarding it, taking 〈it〉 to the east, and carrying it to the west, striking … giving it hundred (?) … scourges each one daily. 2I was afraid: I threw myself on my face, for my knees were weak. 3The angel gave me his hand. He said to me, Be victorious that you may be victorious, and be strong that you may be victorious over the accuser and may come up from hell. 1 Cp. Anon. Apoc. iii. 1, 6–7 (pp. 923 and 924 below). 4And when I got up, I said, And who is this they are set over? 5He said to me, This is 〈a〉 soul whose lawless doings were no secret; 2 Lit. ‘a soul which was found in its lawlessness’. and before it succeeded in repenting, it was visited and taken out of its body. 6Truly I, Zephaniah, saw and took note of these things. 3 Lit. ‘saw, seeing these things’. For the possibility that these words mark the end of the apocalypse see the Introduction (pp. 916–7 above).

7And the angel of the Lord walked with me. I saw a wide open place, with thousands upon thousands surrounding it on the left and myriads upon myriads on the right. 4 Cp. Anon. Apoc. i. 11. The nature of each one was different, their hair all loose like women's hair, 〈their〉 teeth like the teeth of…. 5 Cp. Anon. Apoc. i. 12, ii. 7.
