XXVII. THE PURPOSE OF THE ACCURSED VALLEY.

XXVII

1Then said I: 'For what object is this blessed land, which is entirely filled with trees, and this 2accursed valley between?' Then Uriel, one of the holy angels who was with me, answered and said: 'This accursed valley is for those who are accursed for ever: Here shall all the accursed be gathered together who utter with their lips against the Lord unseemly words and of His glory speak hard things.

Ethiopic

Here shall they be gathered together, and here shall be their place of judgement. 3In the last days there shall be upon them the spectacle of righteous judgement in the presence of the righteous for ever: here shall the merciful bless the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King.

Greek

Here shall they be gathered together, and here shall be the place of their habitation. 3In the last times, in the days of true judgement, in the presence of the righteous for ever: here shall the godly bless the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King.

4In the days of judgement over the former, they shall bless Him for the mercy in accordance with 5which He has assigned them [their lot].' Then I blessed the Lord of Glory and set forth His glory and lauded Him gloriously.

 

26

26:1 Then I said, What means this blessed land, all these lofty trees, and the accursed valley between them?

26:2 Then Uriel, one of the holy angels who were with me, replied, This valley is the accursed of the accursed for ever. Here shall be collected all who utter with their mouths unbecoming language against God, and speak harsh things of His glory. Here shall they be collected. Here shall be their territory.

26:3 In the latter days an example of judgment shall be made of them in righteousness before the saints; while those who have received mercy shall for ever, all their days, bless God, the everlasting King.

26:4 And at the period of judgment shall they bless Him for his mercy, as He has distributed it to them. Then I blessed God, addressing myself to Him, and making mention, as was meet, of His greatness.
