Text Commentary

1And God said to his only-begotten Son, Go, take the soul of my beloved Sedrach, and set it down in Paradise. 2The only-begotten Son said to Sedrach, 〈Give up what was entrusted to you〉, 1 Not in the MS: supplied from Apoc. Esdr. vi. 3 (see above, p. 939). what our Father deposited in your mother's womb, in the holy tabernacle of your body before you were born. 3Sedrach said, I will not give my soul to thee. 4 The Son 2 Reading ὁ υἱός for ὁ Θεός. What follows immediately leaves no doubt that it is the Son who is speaking here, though there is some confusion later on (cp. especially x. 1 and xii. 1). A parallel ambivalence, if not necessarily a confusion, may be observed at Apoc. Esdr. vi. 16, 17, 19, and 21. said to him, Why then was I sent and came here, and you make excuses to me? 5For I was ordered by my Father not to take your soul by force: 3 Lit. ‘shamelessly’. so then, give me your soul which he desires so much.
