Text Commentary

1And the Lord said to him, It is well you have come, my beloved Sedrach. What is it that you would plead before the God who formed you, for you said, I would speak face to face 1 Lit. ‘mouth to mouth’. with God? 2Sedrach said to him, I would indeed plead before thee, as a son with his father. 2 Lit. ‘Yes: the son has a cause me the father’. 3Why, my Lord, didst thou make the earth? The Lord said to him, For the sake of man. 4Sedrach said, And why didst thou make the sea? Why didst thou sow every good thing upon the earth? 5,6The Lord said, For the sake of man. Sedrach said to him, If thou didst these things, why didst thou then destroy him? 7The Lord said, Man is my work, and what my hands have fashioned, and I discipline him 3 Or ‘I educate him’. as I find necessary.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘mouth to mouth’.

2 Lit. ‘Yes: the son has a cause me the father’.
