Text Commentary

1Sedrach said to him, Thy discipline 1 Or ‘education’. is punishment and fire: they are bitter, my Lord. 2It were better for man if he had not been born. 3Why then didst thou make him, my Lord? Why didst thou weary thy unsullied hands with toil and fashion man, since thou wouldest not have mercy on him? 4God said to him, I made the first-formed Adam, and 1 set him in Paradise where grew 2 Lit. ‘… Paradise, in the midst of’. the tree 5of life; and I said to him, You may eat of all the fruits, only keep away from the tree of life, for if you eat of it, you will most surely die. 6And he disobeyed my command and was deceived by the devil and ate of the tree.

Notes:

1 Or ‘education’.

2 Lit. ‘… Paradise, in the midst of’.
