Text Commentary

1And Sedrach said to God, And how wilt thou take my soul? From what limb? 2And God said to him, Do you not know that your soul is centred in your lungs and your heart 〈and〉 is dispersed through all your limbs? 3It is brought up through throat and larynx and the mouth. And when the time comes for it to come out, it is first of all collected and gathered together from the toes and all the 4 other limbs, and then it has to be separated from the body and parted from the heart. 5When Sedrach had heard all this, and thought about the reference to death, he was much disturbed. 6And Sedrach said to God, Grant me, Lord, a little respite 4 Reading ἄνεσιν for ἴασιν (cp. Apoc. Esdr. v. 10). so that I can weep; for I have heard 〈that〉 tears are a most powerful and effective medicine for the weak body that thou hast fashioned.

Notes:

4 Reading ἄνεσιν for ἴασιν (cp. Apoc. Esdr. v. 10).
