3106RE: [textualcriticism] Book of Revelation & Folio 129a ofSinaiticus
- Apr 28, 2007Jean,
Sounds like it is a commentary on the following passage, which begins the folio:
NAB Revelation 7:13-17
13 Then one of the elders spoke up and said to me, "Who are these wearing white robes, and where did they come from?" 14 I said to
him, "My lord, you are the one who knows." He said to me, "These are the ones who have survived the time of great distress; they
have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 "For this reason they stand before God's throne and
worship him day and night in his temple. The one who sits on the throne will shelter them. 16 They will not hunger or thirst
anymore, nor will the sun or any heat strike them. 17 For the Lamb who is in the center of the throne will shepherd them and lead
them to springs of life-giving water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

I think I have deciphered the left column in Arabic.
It sounds like this:
"And by the end of the seventh millenium, will be achieved the oppression and the murder and the sadness of the witnesses who on the
name of the [Lord] Messiah have been made notorious, and have been distinguished in [grace] in the [Kingdom]"
It's difficult to read, though, and I'm not quite sure of the words between brackets, some are quite difficult to read and it could
be dialectal of course...
I will be revising this and working on the other two columns, if it sounds interesting to you.
