Text Commentary

1And I answered and said, How can we forget those whose future is punishment? 2And why, again, do we mourn for those who die, and weep for those who depart to Sheol? 3Far better, surely, keep our lamentations for the beginning of that torment which is to be, and reserve our tears for the destruction when it comes. 4But on the other hand – the righteous: what should they do now? 5I would say, 1 The rendering of verses 4 and 5 here given represents a slight re-ordering of the text in an attempt to make some sense. Charles rendered ‘But even in the face of these things will I speak. And as for the righteous, What will they do now?’ 6Rejoice in the suffering you now endure: why concern yourselves about 2 Lit. ‘Why do you look for?’ the downfall of your enemies? 7Make yourselves ready for what is reserved for you, and prepare yourselves for the reward laid up for you. 3 See n.9 to chap. xlviii.
