“In three days, [live,] I Gabriel command you.” Although the scholars who first published this text considered parts of line 80 to be illegible, Knohl believes he can read the word ḥayeh (“live”) and has reconstructed the line to depict the archangel ordering someone to live, or rise from the dead, in three days. Another portion of the text (lines 19–21; see photo) refers to evil being conquered by good “in three days.”
