Text Commentary

1And after this, behold, the heavens opened, and I saw a vision, and strength was given me, and a voice was heard from on 2high, and it said to me, Baruch, Baruch, why are you troubled? 3What comfort is there for a man if he sets off on a journey by road and never reaches his journey's end, or if he goes by sea and never arrives at the port he was making for? 4Or if he promises to give someone else a present and never does, is it not equivalent to robbery? 5Or if he sows seed in the earth, but does not reap the fruit from it in its season, does he not suffer a total loss? 6Or if he plants a plant, can he expect any fruit from it before the regular time for fruit? 7Or if a pregnant woman bears a still-born child, is she not the unwitting cause of her infant's death? 8Or if a man builds a house and does not finish it by putting a roof on it, can it properly be called a house? Tell me that first.
