Text Commentary

1

The depths melted before the Lord, And darkness was destroyed by his appearance: 2 Error erred and perished before him, 1 Lit. ‘from him’. And folly 2 So B: H ‘contempt’. became inactive, 3 Lit. ‘received (so B: H ‘gave’) immobility’. and it sank because of the truth of the Lord. 3 He opened his mouth and spoke grace and joy, And spoke a new song of praise to his name; 4 And he lifted up his voice to the Most High, And he presented to him those sons who had come into being through him; 4 Or ‘who were in his hands’ (so H: B ‘hand’). 5 And his person was justified, Because his holy Father had granted him that it should be so. 6 Come forth, you who have been oppressed, And receive joy; 7 And take possession of your souls through grace, And take to yourselves immortal life. 8 And they condemned me when I stood up, Me, who was uncondemned; 9 And they divided my spoil, Although nothing was owing to them. 10 But I endured, and was silent and quiet, That I might not be moved by them; 11 But I stood without moving, like a firm rock, Which is buffeted by the waves and yet endures; 12 And I bore their bitterness because of humility, In order that I might deliver my people and take possession of them, 13 And that I might not render void the promises to the patriarchs, Whose seed I promised to deliver. 5 Or ‘For the deliverance of whose seed I was promised’. Hallelujah.
