Text Commentary

1

Open your ears, And I will speak to you: 2 Give me yourselves, 1 Lit. ‘your souls’. That I too may give you myself, 2 Lit. ‘my soul’. 3 The word of the Lord, and his will, The holy purpose which he planned concerning his Christ. 4 For in the will of the Lord is your life, And your perfection is incorruptible. 5 Become rich in God the Father, And receive the mind of the Most High: Be strong, and be delivered in his grace. 6 For I proclaim peace to you, his pious ones, That none of those who hear may fall in the war, 7 And that those also who have known him may not perish, And that those who receive him may not be ashamed. 8 Truth is an eternal crown (Blessed are those who set it on their heads), 9 A stone of great price; For the wars are on account of the crown; 10 And righteousness took it And gave it to you. 11 Put on the crown in the true covenant of the Lord; And all those who have been victorious will be written in his book; 12 For their book is the victory that is yours; And she 3 i.e., victory. sees you before her, and wills that you may be delivered. Hallelujah.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘your souls’.
