Text Commentary

1And Aseneth saw Joseph and she was cut to the quick, her stomach turned over, 1 Lit. ‘and she was strongly pricked in the soul, and her inwards were broken’. her knees became limp, and her whole body trembled. 2And she was much afraid and cried out and said, Where shall I go, and where can I hide myself from him? And how will Joseph, the son of God, regard me, for I have spoken evil 2 D om. of him? 3Where can I flee and hide myself, for he sees everything, and no secret is safe from him, because of the great light that is in him? 4And now may Joseph's God be propitious to me 3 D ‘have mercy on me’. because I spoke evil in ignorance. 5What can I hope for, 4 Lit. ‘What then shall I see ( = DF: BA ‘follow’)’. wretch that I am? Have I not spoken, saying, Joseph is coming, the shepherd's son from the land of Canaan? And now, behold, the sun is come 5 B ‘like the sun is he come’. to us from heaven in his chariot and has come into our house to-day. 6But I was foolish and reckless to despise him, and I spoke evil of him and did not know that Joseph is the son of God. 7For who among men will ever father such beauty, and what mother 6 Lit. ‘what kind of womb’. will ever bear such a light? Wretch that I am and foolish, for I spoke evil of him to my father. 8Now let my father give me to Joseph 7 to Joseph: B om. as a maidservant and a slave, and I will serve him for ever.
