Text Commentary

1And Aseneth was filled with joy at Joseph's blessing, and she went up 1 So BEA Slav.: DFH ‘away’. in haste to her storey at the top and fell on her couch exhausted, because she felt not only happy, but also disturbed and very frightened; 2 Lit. ‘and a continual (D om.) sweat was poured about her (= D: BFA om. ‘was poured about her’) when she heard these words from Joseph who had spoken’. and she had been bathed in perspiration from the moment she heard Joseph speaking 3 Lit. ‘and a continual (D om.) sweat was poured about her (= D: BFA om. ‘was poured about her’) when she heard these words from Joseph who had spoken’. to her in the name of God Most High. 2And she wept bitterly, and she repented of her gods she used to worship; and she waited for evening to come. 3And Joseph ate and drank; and he said to his servants, Yoke the horses to the chariot (for he said, I must depart and go round the whole city and the district 4 Lit. ‘land’. ). 4And Pentephres said to Joseph, Stay the night here, my lord, and to-morrow go your way. 5And Joseph said, No! I must be going now, for this is the day when God began his works: in eight days time I will come back again 5 So D Slav.: BEFA om. and stay the night here with you.
