Text Commentary

1

And in those days the reapers shall not grow weary, Nor those that build be toilworn; For both works and workers together Will prosper in complete accord. 2 For that time marks the end of what is corruptible And the beginning of what is incorruptible. 3 Thus, what was predicted will be fulfilled in it: It is beyond the grasp of evil men, Accessible only to those who will not die. 1 So, strictly, the Syriac, which has masculines for ‘evil’ and ‘those who will not die’. It is possible, however, to take the Syriac masculines as a misunderstanding of original neuters – as Charles (‘It is far away from evils, and near to those things which die not’).

4These are the bright waters 2 See note on lxxii. 1. that came after the last dark waters.
