But when the Prophet says, "he will strike the earth with the word of his mouth," he is not speaking about the earth, but about sins.[1] As the [saying] "and the whole earth became one lip" [is] about sins.[2] And Abraham disparaging himself says, "but I am earth and dust."[3] And elsewhere: "in his life his entrails are set at naught;"[4] meaning his stomach.
Greek Original:
Πατάξει: ὅταν δὲ λέγῃ ὁ Προφήτης, πατάξει τὴν γῆν τῷ λόγῳ τοῦ στόματος αὐτοῦ: οὐ περὶ γῆς λέγει, ἀλλὰ περὶ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν. ὡς τό, καὶ ἐγένετο ἡ γῆ πᾶσα χεῖλος ἕν: περὶ ἁμαρτιῶν. καὶ ὁ Ἀβραὰμ ἑαυτὸν ἐξευτελίζων, ἐγὼ δὲ εἰμὶ γῆ καὶ σποδός, λέγει. καὶ πάλιν: ἐν τῇ ζωῇ αὐτοῦ ἐξουδένωται τὰ ἐντόσθια αὐτοῦ: τὴν γαστέρα λέγων.
