Chapter Summary

This chapter presents Hebrew text and translation of the chronicle of Aḥima῾az. In the name of He who dwells in the glorious heavens, the author starts declaiming and recounting-to investigate, to expose, to disclose an ordered pleasant book-of-tales, a book of collected stories of the forefathers; to expound matters and recite in tunes, seeking to collect, to seek the genealogy, without being snared by seeking. Princes and lords, who understand mysteries, composers of rhymed verses, adept in the mysteries, wise watchers, intelligent observers, astute authors of prayers, learned in the Book of Righteousness, observers of the Mystery of the Chariot. The first was Rabbi Shephatiah, who engaged in the salutary Law; the second was Rabbi Ḥananel, who meditated on the Law of God, brought down by Yekutiel; third was Eleazar, who speculated on that which was given in the third.

Keywords: Aḥima῾az; God; Hebrew text; Rabbi Ḥananel; Rabbi Shephatiah
