Text Commentary

1And the men led me up from there and carried me up to the sixth heaven. And I saw there seven angels in a group, bright and very glorious; and their faces 1 So B etc.: U corrupt. shone like a ray of sunlight. 2There is no difference between them in face or size or style of clothing. 2 So BNR (lit. ‘or in the modification of their clothing’): U corrupt. 3These arrange and teach the right ordering of the world, the movement 3 So NBaR: U ‘birth’. of the stars, of the sun and of the moon, and of the angels, their guides, and of the heavenly voices; 4 BNBa ‘angels’. and they bring harmony to all the life of heaven. 4And they arrange also the regulation and order and execution 5 Lit. ‘sweet voices’. of the singing and the offering of all the praise and glory, and the angels 6 Or ‘…praise and glory; and these are the angels…’ who are over the seasons and the years, and the angels who are over the rivers and over the seas, and the angels who are over the fruits and grass and all that grows, and the angels of all the peoples. 5And these bear rule and record the deeds of all living things in the presence of the Lord. 7 Lit. ‘And these rule and write all life before the face of the Lord’. 6And among them are seven phoenixes and seven cherubim and seven six-winged angels, 8 So BNBaR: U ‘and seven cherubim, six-winged creatures’. speaking together and singing together in unison; and it is impossible to describe their songs. 7And the Lord rejoices in his footstool.
