Text Commentary

1God said to him, You must understand that I gave Adam 1 Lit. ‘him’. dominion over all things. 2I made him wise and heir of heaven and earth, and I put all things under him. 3And every other living thing runs away from him and avoids his presence. 4But although he had received my gifts, he became estranged and an adulterer and a sinner. 5What father is there, tell me, who after giving his son his share of his estate, and the son, after taking what was now his, left his father, and went away into a foreign land and became the slave of a 6foreign master – what father is there, 2 Lit. ‘and the father’. seeing that his son has 7deserted him, will not be furious, 3 Lit. ‘his heart is smoking’. and go after him and take his property back, and disown his son, 4 Lit. ‘and banish him from his glory’. because he deserted his father? 8How then should it be otherwise with me? I, the terrible and jealous God, gave Adam 1 Lit. ‘and banish him from his glory’. all things, and he, after he had received them, became an adulterer and a sinner.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘him’.

2 Lit. ‘and the father’.

3 Lit. ‘his heart is smoking’.
