Text Commentary

1Sedrach said to him, It was in accordance with thy will, my Lord, that Adam was deceived. 2Thou didst command thine angels to worship Adam; and the first of the angels who disobeyed thy 3command and did not worship him, thou didst banish, because he transgressed 1 MS ‘Why did he transgress …?’ thy command and refused to approach what thy hands had fashioned. 4If thou didst love man, why didst thou not kill the devil, who devises every kind of wickedness? 5Who can fight an invisible spirit? He enters the hearts of men like smoke 〈and〉 teaches them every sin. 6He even fights against thee, the immortal God. 7What then can wretched man do against him? But have mercy, Lord, and remit thy punishments: or else, count 2 Lit. ‘receive’. me also among the sinners. 8If thou hast no mercy upon sinners, where are thy mercies, where is thy compassion, Lord?

Notes:

1 MS ‘Why did he transgress …?’

2 Lit. ‘receive’.
