1 QM. WAR SCROLL TRIBES RETURN About The Cover

Carved on a rock about six stories high. Darius recorded his conquest of the Ten Tribes. Ten men are seen in the picture. Nine standing, and one laying down with the foot of Darius on his neck, indicating subjection. The Israelites did call themselves the House of Issac or ISAAKA‌. After the fall of the Assyrian capital Nineveh in 612 BC, the main body of Scythian Israelites came under such pressure from the Medes, that they were forced northwards through the Dariel Pass in the Caucasus mountains and into the steppe region of southern Russia. After going through the Caucasus mountains , they became known as Caucasions. Perhaps this is why Rabbis say Christians will be allowed to return as part of the Tribes of Israel. This series of books will endeavor to describe the war they will be returning to fight.

1 QM. WAR SCROLL TRIBES RETURN

BOOK 1 This is the first in a series of books on the Scroll apparantly written by King David; it encorprates the Vision of Jacob as the setting for a future war.

Our challenge is to see the man on top as Joseph. Joseph who chose to build the Pyramid, as the Vision of his father. Moses discussed a war in heaven that must come to the Earth. In Deauteronomy 34, he linked this with Joseph and Jacob. Deuteronomy 33:13. And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the LORD be his land; For the precious things of heaven, for the dew, And for the 4


deep that croucheth beneath, 14. And for the precious things of the fruits of the sun, And for the precious things of the growth of the moons, The blessing of the Lord is for his land; which is to hold a relationship to the celestial heaven and the deep pit which lies beneath The fruits of the sun , includes its death and resurrection on an annual basis. 15. And for the chief things of the ancient mountains, And for the precious things of the everlasting hills, That which he saw has a relationship to Jerusalem ‌the ancient mountain The chief thing is the chief cornerstone of the mountain ‌the foundation stone. 16. And for the precious things of the earth and the fulness thereof, And the good will of him that dwelt in the bush: Let the blessing come upon the head of Joseph, And upon the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren. We see the blessing on the head of Joseph 17. The firstling of his bullock, majesty is his; And his horns are the horns of the wild-ox Taurus in heaven is the firstling bullock, it is here that the message is. and his horns‌ qeren (keh'-ren) a horn (as projecting); by implication, a flask, cornet; by resemblan elephant's tooth (i.e. ivory), a corner (of the altar), a peak (of a mountain), a ray (of light); figuratively, power -- hill, horn.

Taurus “The firstling of his bullock, majesty is his; And his horns are the horns of the wild-ox” The four horns of Taurus and Aries make up the pattern for the celestial incense alter. Tau in Hebrew meaning the last or alter. The term applied to Aries, which was also called Barazigger, meaning, “The righteous alter.” Aries was at one time the last symbol of the Zodiac and finished the yearly procession. According to the ancient tradition the Sun died with the lamb. So Aries was considered to be “The alter for the Sun. Aleph in Hebrew means Ox and first. The term Alpha describes Taurus who was at one time considered the first constellation and lead the yearly procession. After the sun died with the lamb, in Egypt it was said to disappear over the horizon as the sun when into the belly of Cetus and then rose back up thru the Pleiades as a symbol of eternity. After that it rose to the horns of the Taurus the bull a symbol of the spring and of resurrection.

Conclusion: The Messiah, Jesus, the Good shepherd, played by Auruga, was crucified with a nail in his foot as the sting of death. This bitterness will come upon the Earth. The Good shepherd is noted in Zech. “Weigh me my price thirty pieces of silver� When an ox gores a man thirty pieces of silver is paid. Jesus was sold for thirty pieces of silver With them he shall push the peoples all of them, even the ends of the earth: And they are the ten thousands of Ephraim, And they are the thousands of Manasseh. The concept will cause the tribes to return to fight a war. When they understand the horns of Taurus. We remember from the that Ephraim, on whose ensign appears the Celestial Bull, Jacob compares to the ox. So it is that the story that Moses related to Ephraim is speaking of the Ox that Jacob linked to Ephraim . This Ox is the celestial Ox, Taurus 7


and his horns are to bring the tribes of Ephraim and Mannesah. Ephraim became the name for the lost 10 tribes. They were Caucasian and became Christian.

[There is] none like unto the God of Jeshurun, [who] rideth6 upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky. The eternal God [is thy] refuge, and underneath [are] the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out17 the enemy6 from before thee; and shall say,4 Destroy54 [them]. This is the story of the son of man. Ophiacus is the witness; he falls and rises to the Pleiades. He then raise to the Pleiades to sprinkle his own blood on the Pleiades which represents the celestial alter Pleiades is a symbol of eternity. Israel then shall dwell4 in safety alone: the fountain of Jacob [shall be] upon a land of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop down4 dew.

Jacob saw a vision of a fount in the heavens that will be also a factor on Earth in this battle.

Qumran & Jacob’s Ladder

STAR CONNECTION Mamonides stated that Jacob’s Vision was a prophetic parable to be understood by breaking apart the words. By following this advice, a basis for learning the prophetic parable of Jacob is established . 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

ladder = the pyramid set up on earth = the Great Pyramid top reaching to heaven = star in the head of Ophiacus angels of God = term applies to stars as well as angels ascending and descending = actions of stars.

As Perseus rise from the pit he rise with a fount. Here three bear witness the water( from the belly of Cetus, the spirit by Perseus), and the blood. Happy [art] thou, O Israel: who [is] like unto thee, O people saved12 by the LORD, the shield of thy help, and who [is] the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies6 shall be found liars11 unto thee; and thou shalt tread4 upon their high places. 10


shield of thy help, …The 1 Qm. War Scroll has a special shield. “All of them shall bear shields of bronze, polished like a face mirror. The shield shall be bound with a border of plaited work and a design of loops, the work of a skillful workman; gold, silver, and bronze bound together It is the work of a skillful workman, artistically done. The length of the shield shall be two and a half cubits, and its breadth a cubit and a half.” the sword of thy excellency! …The 1 Qm. War Scroll has a special sword. “In their hands they hold a lance. The length of the lance shall be seven cubits, of which the socket and the blade constitute half a cubit. On the socket there she be three bands engraved as a border of plaited work; of gold, silver, and Copper bound together like an artistically designed work. And in the loops of the design, on both sides of the band all around, shall be precious stones, a multicolored brocade, the work of a skillful workman, artistically done, and an ear of grain. The socket shall be grooved between the bands like a column, artistically done. The blade shall be of shining white iron, the work of a skillful workman, artistically done, and an ear of grain of pure gold inlaid in the blade; tapered towards the point. The swords shall be of refined iron, purified in the furnace and polished like a face mirror, the work of a skillful workman, artistically done, with figures of ears of grain of pure gold embossed on both sides. The borders shall go straight to the point, two on each side. The length of the sword shall be a cubit and a half and its width four fingers The scabbard shall be four thumbs wide and four handbreadths up to the scabbard. The scabbard shall be tied on either side with thongs of five handbreadths. The handle of the sword shall be of choice horn, the work of a skillful workman, a varicolored design with gold and silver and precious stones.” and thine enemies6 shall be found liars11 unto thee…”who is a liar..whoever says that’ ‘the son of man has not come in the flesh’. and thou shalt tread4 upon their high places... This is the plan for war The soldiers of Israel will be on the high ground over the pit of hell and fight the enemies as they try to climb out of the pit. In Hebrew tradition the term ‘Lord of Hosts’, means stars as well as angels.

11


An angelic and heavenly army is also noted from the same Qumran document. You will do battle against them from the heave[ns . ] 18[,, . ] upon them for confusion [ ] i9 20[ . ] Col. 12 For You have a multitude of holy ones in the heavens and hosts of angels in Your exalted dwelling to pr[aise] Your [name]. The chosen ones of the holy people ...together with Your holy ones [and] Your angels, and directing them in battle [so as to condemn] the earthly adversaries by trial with Your judgments. With the elect of heaven [they] shall prev[ail]. For the Lord is holy, and the King of Glory is with us together with the holy ones. Migh[ty men and] a host of angels are with our commissioned forces.9 The Hero of Wa[r] is with our company, and the host of His spirits is with our steps *If such a war were to occur, it would not be the first time. In the Book of Judges the stars were said to have fought in courses. The Zohar tells us that two stars actually switched places in this episode. To understand what’s really being discussed here the reader will need the background information provided below. In Hebrew writings, the term “Heavenly Hosts” includes not only the counselors and emissaries of Jehovah, but also the celestial luminaries; and the stars, imagined in the East to be animated intelligences, presiding over human weal and woe, are identified with more distinctly impersonated messengers or angels, who execute the Divine decrees, and whose predominance in Heaven is in mysterious correspondence and relation with powers and dominions of the Earth…The Elohoim originally included not only foreign superstitious forms, but also all that host of Heaven which was revealed in poetry to shepherds of the desert, now as an encampment of warriors, now careering in chariots of fire , and now as winged messengers, ascending and descending the vault of heaven, to communicate the will of God to Mankind. The “Eternal” says the Bereshith Rabba to Genesis, “called forth Abraham and his posterity out of the dominion of the stars; by 12


nature, the Israelite was a servent to the stars, and born under their influence, as are the heathen; but by virtue of the law given on Mount Sinai, he became liberated from this degrading servitude.”… Yet the astrological character is assigned even to Jehovah. He is described as seated on the pinnacle of the Universe, leading forth the Hosts of Heaven, and telling them unerringly by name and number. His stars are His sons and His eyes, which run through the whole world, keeping watch over men’s deeds. The stars and planets were properly the angels. In Pharisaic tradition, as in phraseology of the New Testament, the Heavenly Host appears as an Angelic Army divided into regiment and brigades”…

Above: the Vision of the Day of the Lord is flipped. We see it in one direction looking up to the sky. The flipped direction would be as if God was looking down to Earth.

13


The Greek name, Ophiuchus, is itself from the Hebrew and Arabic name Afeichus, which means the serpent held. The brightest star in Ophiuchus, a (in the head), is called Ras al Hagus (Arabic), the head of him who holds. Other Hebrew names of stars, not identified, are Triophas, treading under foot; Saiph (in the foot of Ophiuchus), bruised; Carnebus, the wounding; Megeros, contending. In the Zodiac of Denderah we have a throned human figure, called Api-bau, the chief who cometh. He has a hawk's head to show that he is the enemy of the serpent, which is called Khu, and means ruled or enemy.

14


We have learned that a day is as ayear with god, and also a day is like a thousand years. But how does this help us to define a day called the day of the Lord. What if we were to picture the day of the Lord as a day that God chose to freeze in Time. It existed as the vision of Jacob and was built by Joseph . It was the house of the Sun. This house existed when Scorpio was the sign of the Autumn Equinox and today this is not so. As the Great Pyramid was completed the dawn of the age where Scorpio was on top and Taurus was the sign of the Spring Equinox. Today the Spring Equionx is on March 21 and Taurus is no longer the sign but Pisces. Yet is said that Pisces give power to Aries and Taurus. And this may be important, as the war that Israel will fight will be at the spring Equinox in Pisces. But this will still give power to the frozen day in time called The Lords Day or the Day of the Lord. David describes this in Psalms 118, saying this is the day that the Lord has made. And to let us know he is describing the Celestial Temple and the story it tells; David continues saying, “we have blessed you from the House of the Lord.” PEOPLE OF THE SAINTS OF THE COVENANT An important application of the subject matter of the War Scroll, concerns “the people of the saints of the covenant” “hearing deep things” about the “host of the luminaries and the task of spirits” WS 4Q Col 10 "Who is like Your people Israel, whom You have chosen for Yourself from all the peoples of the lands; the people of the saints of the covenant, learned in the statutes, enlightened in understanding [ . . . ] those who hear the glorious voice and see the holy angels, whose ears are open; hearing deep things. O God, You have created the expanse of the skies, the host of luminaries, the task of spirits and the dominion of holy ones, the treasures of Your glory [ . . . ] clouds" In the final analysis, they will see the angels, which Jacob saw ascending and descending in a ladder. The “people of the saints of the covenant, learned in the statutes, enlightened in understanding” are “those who see the holy angels” and understand “the task of the spirits.” 15


This task will include casting Bel (known as Belial) and his army in the pit. Upon closer examination we learn that Bel is Lucifer, and God’s purpose is recorded in the Dead Sea Scrolls as well as the Bible.

Order of Events

The text above; provides movement for Ophiacus

1. Removes Ashes from Altar

When the sun is on the Prince, it is also on Scorpio Scorpio is considered to be wicked (So the Sun would burn the wicked up, turning him to ashes under the feet of Ophiacus. 16


This also fulfills: Malachi 4:3 - And you shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, said the LORD of hosts

1. Removes Ashes from Altar Psalm 118:11. They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them. 12. They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.

CELESTIAL INTERPRETATION

First, in His solar travel, the child was born as the Sun broke through the womb of Virgo. As the Sun travels it is compassing about the heavens only to be stung. The child of the Virgin now compasses to become the “young man,” Ophiacus. When the Sun travels passes by the feet of Ophiacus, Scorpio, also known as “the wicked,” burns as ashes. The child of Virgo the Virgin is compassing about the circuit of the heavens along with the Sun. He is the “Sun of Righteousness.” We note also, the Virgo motif was found in the design of the appointed sword WS “The blade shall be of shining white iron, the work of a skillful workman, artistically done, and an ear of grain of pure gold inlaid in the blade; tapered towards the point.” The ear of grain helps us to think of Virgo, who holds an ear of grain to represent the Messiah. The order of the priestly sacrifices on earth reflect the heavenly hous and tell of the story of the Messiah, as the story of the God of Jehuran.

18


About the Picture: At the top of the celestial Temple we see the Chief. It is at the height of the Autumn Equinox that the Sun is in Scorpio The wicked Scorpio is “burned as ashes under his feet�. Malachi 4:1-3 LANGUAGE OF THE PRINCE- Fall and Rising BUT UNTO YOU that fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings; And ye shall go forth and gambol as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.

STRONGS KJV Psalms 118:22 The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief of the corner. It is marvelous to our eyes. STRONGS KJV Psalms 118:22 “The stone plummets in the head of the chief at the corner of the tower; to separate and arise wonderful to the eyes of the landscape. Psalms 118: 22 “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief of the corner” Stone: (Strong’s H68 – ‘eben) mason, plummet Head (Strong’s H7218 – ro’sh) meaning the head, chief –est place, high priest, ruler, top, summit Corner: (Strong’s H6438 – pinnah) A pinnacle, figuratively: a chieftain, KJV—bulwark, chief, corner, stay, tower. Psalms 118: 22 “It is marvelous in our eyes” Marvelous 2298 – to separate and arise wonderful Eyes 5869 ayin – to have to look openly and regard, knowledge of the resemblance, eye of the landscape

21


ABOVE: The black star on the bottom is Mira meaning wonderful. It was the depth of the Suns travel. Here the Sun and the sun of the Sun would rise. In scripture he is called the “Sun of righteousness” The line up to the grotto was the Sun’s annual ascension at the time the Great Pyramid was built. As the Temple of Osirus it recorded the solar travel in the Heavens.. The Sun was to rise, with the man called the breaker. The Grotto is circling Pleiades which are called “Little Eyes: and are the eyes of the landscape. The grotto of the Great Pyramid speaks of the Pleiades in its math (see preface)

Ophiacus is stung by Scorpio, and falls to the pit Ophiacus changes his garments (the soul) and becomes As the first part of the soul Perseus, Perseus must rise from the Pit

SOLAR STORY The term soul comes from solar. The sun died when it went into the belly of the whale , and rose as 3 parts. 1.Perseus -Ruah meaning spirit …when the silver cord is broken the spirit returns to God first. 2. Auruga, -Nefesh meaning the animal self….Auruga joins with the beast in the star El Nath meaning Slain. 3. Orion - Nephshemah, meaning the spiritual double Micah 2:13 “The breaker goes up before them” “breaker” …another name of Perseus and the sun. In the pit, Ophiacus changes his garments and becomes Perseus, who represents the golden vestments of the sun. Afterwards, Perseus must rise from the Pit.

3.Slaughter the daily morning elevation (burnt) offering (must be an ox) One man finishes it…Auruga One man receives and throws the blood…Orion

22


Perseus moves from star Mira, meaning wonderful, to the stars of Pleiades, also called eyes. He is the Ruah or spirit body of the man. “It is marvelous in our eyes” Marvelous 2298 – to separate and arise wonderful Eyes 5869 ayin – to have to look openly and regard knowledge of the resemblance, eye of the landscape

23


26. Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD. 27. God is the LORD, which hath shewed us light:…Perseus breaks forth with as the light..with the Sun in its apparent path. bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar…Auruga is on the horns of the alter we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD... All this takes place in the celestial temple. Micah 2:13 “The breaker goes up before them” “breaker” …another name of Perseus and also a name for the Sun. In mythology, Perseus uses the wings on his feet (from Hermes) to elevate up from the belly of the Monster (the star Mira—meaning “wonderful”). Perseus pases by the Ox and makes the incision. Another name for the Pleiades is the Dove. When Jesus was baptized the Holy Spirit came unto him in the form of a dove. The intention of this expression, show us that the seven Spirits of God rested on Jesus. The seven stars of the Pleiades are called “our greater Sun”, being that our entire galaxies orbits around them. Since this takes place over the course of 24


thousands of years. Pleiades are indicative of a greater age or Eternity. Since the Pleiades is a symbol of eternity; the seven stars located on the celestial incense alter represent the New Covenant The blood of Jesus was the eternal sacrifice, offering eternal life for believers

Psalms 118: 27 “Bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.� El Nath is a star on one of the horns of the altar Taurus is bound to the same star as Auruga. El Nath meaning slain or death. Auruga finishes killing the Ox. When an ox gores a man and it is known to gore the Ox must be killed along with its owner. Since the Ox is goring the good shepherd (Auruga) and since Taurus is known to gore (he also gores at Orion) the ox therefore dies with the man. 25


Auruga represents the second part of the soul…the nefshemah This is the animal self. Auruga is joined with the Ox.. When an Ox gores a man ,thirty pieces of silver is paid. When Zechariah said “weigh me my price…thirty pieces of silver” He was doubtless speaking of this picture of the Messiah, The Hebrew letter VAV meaning nail is applied to Taurus in the Kabbalah. Vav means peg or nail. Yeshua had a nail in his foot like the ”Good Shepherd” in heaven.

26


Taurus is bound to the same star as Auruga. El Nath, meaning Wounded and Slain The foot of Taurus is in the chamber of Darkness‌dark comes from a root meaning death‌the star in the foot also means death The animal offerings are bound together with their backsides missing. They are also on the solar altar.

27


Note: The path of Perseus goes through the Ox, as “He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places.” Note: The sword of Perseus Note: Taurus the Ox, which represents death, is under his feet.

In the Book of Revelation, John saw “the Lord’s Day” [8] And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; And the second angel …Perseus is the second angel.

PREFACED Many feel that when Isaiah spoke of an altar, and sign and witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt, is referring to the Great Pyramid. I do as well The Great Pyramid has been determined to pillar in the center and border of Egypt. In this scene God addresses Egypt. Looking beyond the idolatry they are to see a savior. Isaiah 19: verses 1+ 20 1. The burden of Egypt behold the Lord rideth upon a swift cloud. 20. And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the Lord because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them. This leads to the questions: Who is the savior? What does the Great Pyramid have to do with the Lord on a cloud?

30


Left: Celestially there is a man on the cloud. The man on the top of the celestial Pyramid is on the Cloud Nebula. He is wrestling with a serpent. If we picture him, as the LORD. Then the Lord will be on a cloud. The mornings stars in heaven became the symbol for the resurrection of the Sun. Celestially after the Sun plummets to the pit; it rises in the Pleiades (the morning stars). According to the ancients the son of the Sun as the man that traveled with the sun. Orion was Horus the child of Virgo, another name for Orion was the ‘Chief who would come” (Api bau ) whom the Egyptians say in the position of the serpent holder Below Right: Red dot represent the stone in Jerusalem it has the name of the LORD on it. This is the spirit body of the Messiah. It also has a serpent wrapped around it. This is Leviathan. The foundation stone has a line to the plummets. It also falls to pit. The term, “Or who stretched out the line upon it?” refers to the stone and its line to the plummet. This is the line to the pit.

31


Review SCENE ONE-HEAVEN AT NIGHT Jesus said the Son of man would come from one side of the heaven unto the other. We do not to see this on televise in some distant day in the future. We only need to know what John saw. When the related facts of John’s testimony become clear we will be able to see it now.

Q. How did John see the Son of man on both sides of Heaven? A. It is important to know in what direction John was facing first. We are able to deduce that he looking to one side of Heaven then turned to see Orion. He said he turned and saw "one like unto the Son of man Before he turned he must therefore be looking to the other side of heaven. Our commentary begins in Chapter 1 verse seven. The words here describe the Serpent holder. Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

32


ABOUT THE PICTURE The Strong’s alternate translation of these same words is as follows: The Vision of the eye is to see (the Son of man) pierced and stung (by the Scorpion)and sitting on a cloud (the Cloud Nebula.)These words describe the “ Serpent Holder”

Q. How does the Serpent Holder portray the Son of man coming on clouds? A. Scorpio sits in the what the ancients called “The Cloud Nebula”(*See Star Lore and Names) so it is here we must envision the word of John. This is where Ophiacus- the serpent Holder is located

Q. How do we know John meant the image of the Serpent Holder to be another picture of the Orion portraying “The Son Of man”? A. According to mythology Orion was stung with the Scorpion and then thrown to the other side of heaven. The Serpent holder is the only constellation stung by Scorpio, the scorpion. He is located on the other side of heaven from Orion. Since the term the Serpent holder is a title and not a name, we must endeavor to view the term as a description of Orion in another pose. According to ancient initiates this was so. Orion is seen in on both 33


sides of heaven in two different poses. Just like the comic book Superman, shows the Hero also dressed as Clark Kent.

Q. How does the words of Daniel about “The Son of Man apply here? A. Daniel said: “I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.” Daniel describes the Ancient of days in the following: “I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment [was] white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne [was like] the fiery flame, [and] his wheels [as] burning fire.” Orion is the Majestic Angel of Michael that lights up the covenant in the 1 Qm. War Scroll.

Deuteronomy 33 talks about a miraculous war to come in Israel, where soldiers will see a thousand fall at the left and 10,000 fall at the right. In Deuteronomy 34 After speaking about a covenant on Deuteronomy 34 9 there is a declaration of a speaker that shall come to teach the ordinances.

After the words they shall burn the incense The literal interpretation of the verse in formation told, “ a woman who would dig at the shoulder of the hill (winnow) a day or two agone, to do a favor and take the reward for the digigning the valuable tihing to burn.” It also mentioned a day or two gone by and going back to the lodging/ I had done so. So after asking for a fleece we did burn the incense according to instructions. “To breath deeply with anger (for the enemy) and then to go lie down and go into a trance. To see a vision”. This I did as well. In the vision I saw my angel . She looked at me, her eyes moved. She was holding a scepter. The Lord said . “My scepter is a rod of iron, not of clay. Pick it up.”“ After the vision the Lord again spoke to me; approximately as follows. “As proof that this really happened the world news will pick you and Carl to speak tomorrow.” He told me to pick 3 questions and they would ask those three. This all happened as planed when CNN chose us to 38


speak. This was a shock to everyone as they had been digging with Vendy over the years and we had only been there a few days. There is also an inference here that this subject will have to do with the 1 Qm War Scroll. The words, “smite the loins of those that come against” In this war the soldiers shall “cleanse their loins before going out to war…because of the angels” because of the Angels. Deuteronomy 33 was speaking of a war where a thousand shall fall on your right and 10,000 on your left. The pit of Hell is located by the Dead Sea.

INTRODUCTION The best way for you to become introduced to this topic is to read the scroll found at Qumran. War Scroll (1QM) (From web and possibly the Israeli antiquities authority.)

The description of the eschatological war. COL I (1) For the In[structor, the Rule of] the War. The first attack of the Sons of Light shall be undertaken against the forces of the Sons of Darkness, the army of Belial: the troops of Edom, Moab, the sons of Ammon, the [Amalekites], (2) Philistia, and the troops of the Kittim of Asshur. Supporting them are those who have violated the covenant. The sons of Levi, the sons of Judah, and the sons of Benjamin, those exiled to the wilderness, shall fight against them (3) with [...] against all their troops, when the exiles of the Sons of Light return from the Wilderness of the Peoples to camp in the Wilderness of Jerusalem. Then after the battle they shall go up from that place 40


(4) a[nd tile king of; the Kittim [shall enter] into Egypt. In his time he shall go forth with great wrath to do battle against the kings of the north, and in his anger he shall set out to destroy and eliminate the strength of (5) I[srael. Then the]re shall be a time of salvation for the People of God, and a time of dominion for all the men of His forces, and eternal annihilation for all the forces of Belial. There shall be g[reat] panic [among] (6) the sons of Japheth, Assyria shall fall with no one to come to his aid, and the supremacy of the Kittim shall cease that wickedness be overcome without a remnant. There shall be no survivors of (7) [all the Sons of] Darkness. (8) Then [the Sons of Rig]hteousness shall shine to all ends of the world continuing to shine forth until end of the appointed seasons of darkness. Then at the time appointed by God, His great excellence shall shine for all the times of (9) e[ternity;] for peace and blessing, glory and joy, and long life for all Sons of Light. On the day when the Kittim fall there shall be a battle and horrible carnage before the God of (10) Israel, for it is a day appointed by Him from ancient times as a battle of annihilation for the Sons of Darkness. On that day the congregation of the gods and the congregation of men shall engage one another, resulting in great carnage. (11) The Sons of Light and the forces of Darkness shall fight together to show the strength of God with the roar of a great multitude and the shout of gods and men; a day of disaster. It is a time (12) of distress fo[r al]l the people who are redeemed by God. In all their afflictions none exists that is like it, hastening to its completion as an eternal redemption. On the day of their battle against the Kittim, (13) they shall g[o forth for] carnage in battle. In three lots the Sons of Light shall stand firm so as to strike a blow at wickedness, and in three the army of Belial shall strengthen themselves so as to force the retreat of the forces (14) [of Light. And when the] banners of the infantry cause their hearts to melt, then the strength of God will strengthen the he[arts of the Sons of Light.] In the seventh lot : the great hand of God shall overcome (15) [Belial and al]l the angels of his dominion, and all the men of [his forces shall be destroyed forever]. 41

Do not trem[ble, no]r be terrified because of them, for your God goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, and to save you" (Deut. 20:2-4) Our [officers shall speak to all those prepared for battle, those Willing of heart, to strengthen them by the might of God, to turn back all who have who have lost heart, and to strengthen all the valiant warriors together. They shall recount that which You slpoke] by the hand of Moses, saying: "And when there is a war in your land against the adversary who attacks you, then yo[u] shall sound an alarm with the trumpets that you might be remembered before your God and be saved from your enemies (Num. 10:9)

The prayer of the chiefpriest. Who is like You, O God of Israel, in he[av]en and on earth, that he can perform in accordance with Your great works (9) and Your great strength. Who is like Your people Israel, whom You have chosen for Yourself from all the peoples of the lands; (10) the people of the saints of the covenant, learned in the statutes, enlightened in understan[ding ...] those who hear the glorious voice and see (11) the holy angels, whose ears are open; hearing deep things. [O God, You have created] the expanse of the skies, the host of luminaries, (12) the task of spirits and the dominion of holy ones, the treasures of [Your] gl[ory . . . ] clouds. He who created the earth and the limits of her divisions (13) into wilderness and plain, and all her offspring, with fhe fru[its ...], the circle of the seas, the sources of the rivets, and the rift of the deeps, (14) wild beasts and winged creatures, the form of man and the gener[ations of] his [see]d, the confusion of language and the separation of peoples, the abode of clans (15) and the inheritance of the lands, [... and] holy festivals, courses of years and times of (16) eternity. [...] these we know from Your understanding which [...] (17) [...] Your [ears] to our cry, for [...] 53


(18) [...] his house [...] (19) [...] (20)[...] Col. 11 (1) Truly the battle is Yours, and by the strength of Your hand their corpses have been broken to pieces, without anyone to bury them. Indeed, Goliath the Gittite, a mighty man of valor, (2) You delivered into the hand of David, Your servant, because he trusted in Your great name and not in sword and spear. For the battle is Yours. (3) He subdued the Philistines many times by Your holy name. Also by the hand of our kings You rescued us many times (4) because of Your mercy; not according to our works, for we have acted wickedly, nor for the acts of our rebelliousness. The battle is Yours, the strength is from You, (5) it is not our own. Neither our power nor the strength of our hand have done valiantly, but rather by Your power and the strength of Your great valor. Jus[t as You told (6) us in time past, saying: "There shall come forth a star out of Jacob, a scepter shal1 rite out of Israel, and shall crush the forehead of Moab and tear down all sons of Sheth, (7) and he shall descend of Jacob and shall destroy the remnant from the city, and the enemy shall be a possession, and Israel shall do valiantly (Num. 24:17-19). By the hand of Your anointed ones, (8) seers of things appointed, You have told us about the ti[mes] of the wars of Your hands in order that You may glorify Yourself {fight} among our enemies, to bring down the hordes of Belial, the seven (9) vainglorious nations, at the hand of the oppressed whom You have redeemed [with powe]r and retribution; a wondrous strength. A heart that melts shall be as a door of hope. You will do to them as You did to Pharaoh (10) and the officers of his chariots in the Red Sea. You will ignite the humble of spirit like a fiery torch of fire in a sheaf, consuming the wicked. You shall not turn back until (11) the annihilation of the guilty. In time past You foretold [the app]ointed time for Your handis powerful work against the Kittim, saying: And Assyria shall fall by a sword not of man, and a sword, (12) not of men, shall consume him (Isa. 31: 8).

54


(13) For into the hand of the oppressed You will deliver the [ene]mies of all the lands; into the hands of those who are prostrate in the dust, in order to bring down all mighty men of the peoples, to return the recompense (14) of the wicked on the head of [...], to pronounce the just judgment of Your truth on all sons of man, and to make for Yourself an everlasting name among the people. (15) [...] the wars, and to show Yourself great and holy before the remnant of the nations, so that [they] may know [that] (16) [You are God ... when You] carry out judgments on Gog and on all his company that are as[semb]led [abou]t [us ...] (17) [...], for You will do battle against them from the heave[ns ...] (18) [...] upon them for confusion [...] (19) [...] (20)[...] (1) (2)

Col. 12 For You have a multitude of holy ones in the heavens and hosts of angels in Your exalted dwelling to pr[aise] Your [name]. The chosen ones of the holy people You have established for Yourself in a [community. The nu]mber (or The b]ook) of the names of all their host is with You in Your holy dwelling, and the n[umber of the holy one]s is in the abode of Your glory. Mercies of blessing [...] and Your covenant of peace You engraved for them with a stylus of life in order to reign o[ver them]: for all time, commissioning the hos[ts of I Your [e]lect by their thousands and tens of thousands together with Your holy ones [and] Your angels, and directing them in battle [so as to condemn] the earthly adversaries by trial with Your judgments. With the elect of heaven [they] shall prev[ail].

(7) And You, O God, are awe[some] in the glory of Your dominion, and the company of Your holy ones is in our midst for etern[al] support. We [shall direct our contempt at kings, derision (8) and disdain at mighty men. For the Lord is holy, and the King of Glory is with us together with the holy ones. Migh[ty men and] a host of angels are with our commissioned forces. (9) The Hero of Wa[r] is with our company, and the host of His spirits 55


is with our steps Our horsemen are [as] the clouds and as the mist covering the earth, (10) and as a steady downpour shedding judgment on all her offspring. Rise up, O Hero, take Your captives, O Glorious One, take (11) Your plunder, O You who do valiantly. Lay Your hand upon the neck of Your enemies, and Your foot upon the backs of the slain. Crush the nations, Your adversaries, and may Your sword (12) devour guilty flesh. Fill Your land with glory, and Your heritance with blessing. An abundance of cattle in Your fields; silver and gold and precious (13) stones in Your palaces. O Zion, rejoice greatly, and shine with joyful songs, O Jerusalem. Rejoice, all you cities of Judah, open (14) your gate[s] forever that the wealth of the nations might be brought to you, and their kings shall serve you. All they that oppressed you shall bow down to you, and the dust (15) [of your feet they shall lick.

Col. 13 land his brothers the [pr]iests, the Levites, and all the elders of the Army with him. They shall bless from their position, the God of Israel and all His works of truth, and they shall curse [Beli]al there and all the spirits of his forces. And they shall say response: "Blessed is the God of Israel for all His holy purpose and His works of truth. And blessed are those who serve Him richteously, who know Him by faith. And cursed is Belial for his contentious purpose, and accursed for his reprehensible rule. And cursed are all the spirits of his lot for their wicked purpose. Accursed are they for all their filthy dirty service. For they are the


lot of darkness, but the lot of God is light (6) [eterna]l. (7) Y[o]u are the God of our fathers. We bless Your name forever, for we are an [eter]na[l] people. You made a covenant with our fathers, and will establish it for their seed (8) throughout the ages of eternity. In all the testimonies of Your glory there has been remembrance of Your [kindness] in our midst as an assistance to the remnant and the survivors for the sake of Your covenant (9) and to re[count] Your works of truth and the judgments of Your wondrous strength. And You, [O God], created us for Yourself as an eternal people, and into the lot of light You cast us (10) in accordance with Your truth. You appointed the Prince of Light from of old to assist us, for in [His] l[ot are all sons of righteous]ness and all spirits of truth are in his dominion. You yourself (11) made Belial for the pit, an angel of malevolence, his [dominio]n is in darkne[ss] and his counsel is to condemn and convict. All the spirits (12) of his lot -- the angels of destruction-- walk in accord with the rule of darkness, for it is their only [des]ire. But we, in the lot of Your truth, rejoice in (13) Your mighty hand. We rejoice in Your salvation, and revel in [Your] hel[p and] Your [p]eace. Who is like You in strength, O God of Israel, and yet (14) Your mighty hand is with the oppressed. What angel or prince is like You for [Your] effe[ctual] support, [fo]r of old You appointed for Yourself a day of gre[at battle ...] (15) [...] to [sup]port truth and to destroy iniquity, to bring darkness low and to lend might to light, and to [...] (16) [...] for an eternal stand, and to annihilate all the Sons of Darkness and bring joy to [al]l [the Sons of Light ...] (17) [...] (18) [... f]or You Yourself designated us for an app[ointed time ...] (19) [...] (20)[...] Col. 14 (1) like the fire of His fury against the idols of Egypt. 57


The blessings of the war recited by all the leaders in the morning before the battle. (2) After they have withdrawn from the slain to enter the camp, all of them shall sing the hymn of return. In the morning they shall wash their clothes, cleanse themselves (3) of the blood of the sinful bodies, and return to the place where they had stood, where they had formed the battle line before the slain of the enemy fell. There they shall all bless (4) the God of Israel and joyously exalt His name together. They shall say in response: "Blessed is the God of Israel, who guards lovingkindness for His covenant and the appointed times (5) of salvation for the people He redeems. He has called those who stumble unto wondrous [accomplishment]s, and He has gathered a congregation of nations for annihilation without remnant in order to raise up in judgment (6) he whose heart has melted, to open a mouth for the dumb to sing [God's] mighty deeds, and to teach feeble [hands] warfare. He gives those whose knees shake strength to stand, (7) and strengthens those who have been smitten from the hips to the shoulder. Among the poor in spirit [...] a hard heart, and by those whose way is perfect shall all wicked nations come to an end; (9) there will be no place for all their mighty men. But we are the remn[ant of Your people. Blessed is] Your name, O God of lovingkindness, the One who kept the covenant for our forefathers. Throughout (9) all our generations You have made Your mercies wondrous for the rem[nant of the people] during the dominion of Belial. With all the mysteries of his hatred they have not led us astray (10) from Your covenant. His spirits of destruction You have driven [away from us. And when the me]n of his dominion [condemned themselves], You have preserved the lives of Your redeemed. You raised up (11) the fallen by Your strength, but those who are great in height You will cut dow[n to humble them. And] there is no rescuer for all their mighty men, and no place of refuge for their swift ones. To their honored men (12) You will return shame, and all [their] vain existence [shall be as not]hing. But we, Your holy people, shall praise Your name for Your works of truth. 58


(13) Because of Your mighty deeds we shall exalt [your splendor in] epochs and appointed times of eternity, at the beginning of day, at night (14) and at dawn and dusk. For Your [glorio]us p[urpose] is great and Your wondrous mysteries are in [Your] high heavens, to [raise u]p those for Yourself from the dust (15) and to humble those of the gods. (16) Rise up, rise up, O God of gods, and raise Yourself in power, [O King of Kings ...] (17) let all the Sons of Darkness [scatter from before You.] Let the light of Your majesty shi[ne forever upon gods and men, as a fire burning in the dark places of the damned] (18) Let it burn [the damned of Sh]eol, as an [eternal] burning [among the transgressors ... in all the appointed times of eternity.] (19) [They shall repeat all the thanksgiving hymns of battle there and then return to their camps] (20)[...] Col. 15 (1) For it is a time of distress for Isra[el, a fixed t]ime of battle against all the nations. The purpose of God is eternal redemption, (2) but annihilation for al1 nations of wickedness. All those pr[epared] for battle shall set out and camp opposite the king of the Kittim and all the forces (3) of Belial that are assembled with him for a day [of vengeance] by the sword of God. (4) (5) (6) (7)

59

The final battle the first engagement. Then the Chief Priest shall stand, and with him his brothers the p[riests], the Levites, and all the men of the army. He shall read aloud the prayer for the appointed time of battle, as is written in the boo]k Serekh Itto (The Rule of His Time), including all the words of their thanksgivings. Then he shall form there all the battle lines, as writ[ten in the Book of the War. Then the priest appointed for the time of vengeance by all his brothers shall walk about and encourage [them for the battl]e, and he shall say in response: "Be strong and courageous as warriors.


(8) Fear not, nor be discoura[ged and let not y]our [heart be faint.] Do not panic, neither be alarmed because of them. Do not (9) turn back nor [flee from the]m. For they are a wicked congregation, all their deeds are in darkness; (10) it is [their] desire. [They have established al]l their refuge [in a lie], their strength is as smoke that vanishes, and all (11) their vast assembly [is as chaff which blows away ... de]solation, and shall not be found. Every creature of greed shall wither quickly away (12) [like a flow]er at ha[rvest time ... Come,] strengthen yourselves for the battle of God, for this day is an appointed time of battle (13) [for G]od against all the n[ations, ... judgm]ent upon all flesh. The God of Israel is raising His hand in His wondrous [streng]th (14) [against all the spirits of wick[edness ... m]ighty ones of the gods are girding themselves for battl[e, and] the formation[s of the3 h[o]ly ones (15) [are rea]dying themselves for a day of [vengeance ...] (16) the God of I[srae]l [...] (17) to remove Bel[ial ...] (18) in his hell [...] (19) [...] (20)[...] (1) (3) (4) (5) (6)

60

Col. 16 until every source [of ...] is come to an end. For] the God of Israel has called out a sword against all the nations, and by the holy ones of His people He will do mightily." They shall carry out all this Rule [on] that [day] at the place where they stand opposite the camps of the Kittim. Then the priests shall blow for them the trumpets of remembrance. The gates of w[ar] shall open, [and] the infantry shall go out and stand in columns between the battle lines. The priests shall blow for them a signal for the formation and the columns [shall deplo]y at the sound of the trumpets until each man has taken his station. Then the priests shall blow for them a second signal: [signs for confron]tation. When they stand near the battle line of the Kittim, within throwing range, each man shall raise his hand with his weapon of


(7) war. Then the six [priests shall blow on the tr]umpets of the slain a sharp staccato note to direct the fighting. The Levites and the all the people with (8) rams' horns shall blow [a battle signa]l, a loud noise. As the sound goes forth, the infantry shall begin to bring down the slain of the Kittim, and all (9) the people shall cease the signal, [but the priest]s shall continue blowing on the trumpets of the slain and the battle shall prevail against the Kittim. The final battle the second engagement. (11) When [Belial] prepares himself to assist the Sons of Darkness, and the slain among the infantry begin to fall by God's mysteries and to test by these mysteries all those appointed for battle, (12) the priests shall blow the trumpets of assembly so that another battle line might go forth as a battle reserve, and they shall take up position between the battle lines. (13) For those employed in battle they shall blow a signal to return. Then the Chief Priest shall approach and stand before the battle line, and shall encourage (14) their heart by [the wondrous might of God and] fortify their hands for His battle. (15) And he shall say in response: ["Blessed is God, for] He tests the he[ar]t of His people in the crucible. And not [...] have your slain [...]. For you have obeyed from of old (16) the mysteries of God. [Now as for you, take courage and stand in the gap, do not fear when God strengthens ...] (17) [...] (18) [...] (19) [...] (20)[...] Col. 17 (1) land He shall appoint their retribution with burning [...] those tested by the crucible. He shall sharpen the implements of war, and they shall not become blunt until [all the nations of] wickedness [come to an end]. (2) But, as for you, remember the judgment [of Nadab and Abi]hu, the sons of Aaron, by whose judgment God showed Himself holy before 61


[all the people. But Eleazar] (3) and Ithamar He preserved for Himself for an eternal covenant [of priesthood]. (4) But, as for you, take courage and do not fear them [... for] their end is emptine and their desire is for the void. Their support is without st[rength] and they do not [know that from the God] of (5) Israel is all that is and that will be. He [...] in all which exists for eternity. Today is His appointed time to subdue and to humiliate the prince of the realm (6) of wickedness. He will send eternal support to the company of His redeemed by the power of the majestic angel of the authority of Michael. By eternal light (7) He shall joyfully light up the covenant of Israel peace and blessing for the lot of God, to exalt the authority of Michael among the gods and the dominion (8) of Israel among all flesh. Righteousness shall rejoice on high, and all sons of His truth shall rejoice in eternal knowledge. But as for you, O sons of His covenant, (9) take courage in God's crucible, until He shall wave His hand and complete His fiery trials; His mysteries concerning your existence." The final battle the third engagement. (10) And after these words the priests shall blow for them a signal to form the divisions of the battle line. The columns shall be deployed at the sound of the trumpets, (11) until each man has taken his station. Then the priests shall blow another signal on the trumpets, signs for confrontation. When (12) the infa[ntry] has approached [the battle] line of the Kitt[im], within throwing range, each man shall raise his hand with his weapon. Then the priests shall blow on the trumpets (13) of the slain [and the Levites and the al]l the people with rams' horns shall sound a signal for battle. The infantry shall attack the army (14) of the Kittim, [and as the soun]d [of the si]gnal [goes forth], they shall begin to bring down their slain. Then all the people shall still the sound of the signal, while the priests (15) continuously blow on [the trumpets of the slain], and the bat[tl]e p[revail]s against the K[ittim, and the troops of Belia]l are defeated before them. 62


(16) Thus in the th[ird] lot [...] to fall slain [...] The final battle the fourth, fifth, and sixth engagements. Nothing of these engagements is preserved. The final battle the seventh engagement. Col. 18 (1) [and in the seven]th [lot, when the great hand of God shall be lifted up against Belial and against all the fo[rc]es of his dominion for an eternal slaughter (2) [...] and the shout of the holy ones when they pursue Assyria. Then the sons of Japheth shall fall, never to rise again, and the Kitum shall be crushed without (3) [remnant and survivor. So] the God of Israel shall raise His hand against the whole multitude of Belial. At that time the priests shall sound a signal (4) [on the six trumpegs of remembrance, and all the battle formations shall be gathered to them and divide against all the ca[mps of the Ki]ttim (5) to completely destroy them. [And] when the sun hastens to set on that day, the Chief Priest and the priests and the [Levites] who are (6) with him, and the chiefs [of the battle lines and the men] of the army shall bless the God of Israel there. They shall say in response: Blessed is Your name, O God [of god]s, for (7) You have done wondrous things for Your people, and have kept Your covenant for us from of old. Many times You have opened the gates of salvation for us (8) for the sak[e of Your co]venant. [And You provided flor our affliction in accord with Your goodness toward us. You, O God of righteousness, have acted for the sake of Your name. Thanksgiving for final victory. (10) [...] You have done w]onders upon wonders with us, but from of old there has been nothing like it, for You have known our appointed time. Today [Your] power has shined forth (11) for us, [and] You [have shown] us the hand of Your mercies with us in eternal redemption, in order to remove the dominion of the enemy, that it might be no more; the hand of Your strength. (12) In bat[tle You shall show Yourself strong aga]inst our enemies for an absolute slaughter. Now the day is pressing upon us [to] pursue their multitude, for You 63


(13) [...] and the heart of warriors You have broken so that no one is able to stand. Yours is the might, and the battle is in Your hand, and there is no (14) [God like You ...] Your [...] and the appointed times of Your will, and reprisal [...] Your [enemie]s, and You will cut of from [...] is (15) [...] (16) [...] (17) [...] (18) [...] (19) [...] (20)[... And we shall direct our contempt at kings,] (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8)

Our horsemen are] [as the clouds and as the mis]t covering the earth; as a steady downpour shedding judgment on all her offspring. Rise up, O Hero,] [Take Your captives, O Glorious One, and ta]ke Your plunder, O You Who do valiantly. Lay Your hand upon the neck of Your enemies, and Your fo[o]t [upon the backs of [the slain. Crush the nations, Yo]ur [adversaries,] and let Your sword devour flesh. Fill Your land with glory, and Your inheritance with blessing.

Ceremony after the final battle. (9) [Then they shall gather] in the camp that n[ig]ht for rest until the morning. In the morning they shall come to the p[la]ce of the battle line, (10) [where the mi]ghty men of the Kittim [fell], as well as the multitude 64


of Assyria, and the forces of all the nations that were assembled unto them, to see whether [the mu]ltitude of slain [are dead] (11) [with none to bury them; those who] fell there by the sword of God.

For the Instructor, the Rule of the War. The first attack of the Sons of Light shall be undertaken against the forces of the Sons of Darkness, the army of Belial: the troops of Edom, Moab, the sons of Ammon, the Amalekites, Philistia, and the troops of the Kittim of Asshur. Supporting them are those who have violated the covenant. The sons of Levi, the sons of Judah, and the sons of Benjamin, those exiled to the wilderness, shall fight against them with [ . . . ] against all their troops, when the exiles of the Sons of Light return from the Wilderness of the Peoples to camp in the Wilderness of Jerusalem. 14 And they shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines on the west; together shall they spoil the children of the east; they shall put forth their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them. 6 For they have consulted together with one consent; against Thee do they make a covenant; 7 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagrites; 8 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; 9 Assyria also is joined with them; they have been an arm to the children of Lot. Selah 14 And I will lay My vengeance upon Edom by the hand of My people Israel; and they shall do in Edom according to Mine anger and according to My fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith the Lord GOD15 Thus saith the Lord GOD: Because the Philistines have dealt by revenge, and have taken vengeance with disdain of soul to destroy, for the old hatred;. 16 therefore thus saith the Lord GOD: Behold, I will stretch out My hand upon the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethites, and destroy the remnant of the sea-coast. 18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken. 19 And they of the

Then after the battle they shall go up from that place a[nd the king of] the Kittim [shall enter] into Egypt. In his time he shall go forth with great wrath to do battle against the kings of the north and in his anger he shall set out to destroy and eliminate the strength of I[srael 29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come into the south; but it shall not be in the latter time as it was in the former. 30 For ships of Kittim shall come against him, and he shall be cowed, and he shall return, and have indignation against the holy covenant, and shall do his pleasure; and he shall return, and have regard unto them that forsake the holy covenant.

40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him; and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow, as he passes through. 41 He shall enter also into the beauteous land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall be delivered out of his hand, Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.

Asshur Japheth 29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come into the south; but it shall not be in the latter time as it was in the former. 30 For ships of Kittim shall come against him, and he shall be cowed, and he shall return, and have indignation against the holy covenant, and shall do his pleasure; and he shall return, and have regard unto them that forsake the holy covenant.

Events

Daniel Chapter 11 --

82

1 And as for me, in the first year of Darius the Mede, I stood up to be a supporter and a stronghold unto him.


2 And now will I declare unto thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all; and when he is waxed strong through his riches, he shall stir up all against the realm of Greece.

-

3 And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will. 4 And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; but not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion wherewith he ruled; for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.

--

-

-

5 And the king of the south shall be strong, and one of his princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion.

-

6 And at the end of years they shall join themselves together; and the daughter of the king of the south shall come to the king of the north to make an agreement; but she shall not retain the strength of her arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm; but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begot her, and he that obtained her in those times.

-

7 But one of the shoots of her roots shall stand up in his place, and shall come unto the army, and shall enter into the stronghold of the king of the north, and shall deal with them, and shall prevail;

-

-

--

-

83

8 and also their gods, with their molten images, and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold, shall he bring into captivity into Egypt; and he shall desist some years from the king of the north. 9 And he shall come into the kingdom of the king of the south, but he shall return into his own land.


10 And his sons shall stir themselves up, and shall assemble a multitude of great forces, and he shall come on, and overflow, as he passes through; and he shall return and stir himself up, even to his stronghold.

-

11 And the king of the south shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north; and he shall set forth a great multitude, but the multitude shall be given into his hand.

-

12 and the multitude shall be carried away, and his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down tens of thousands; but he shall not prevail. 13 And the king of the north shall again set forth a multitude, greater than the former; and he shall come on at the end of the times, even of years, with a great army and with much substance.

-

14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south; also the children of the violent among thy people shall lift themselves up to establish the vision; but they shall stumble.

--

15 And the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mound, and take a wellfortified city; and the arms of the south shall not withstand; and as for his chosen people, there shall be no strength in them to withstand. -

--

-

16 But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him; and he shall stand in the beauteous land, and in his hand shall be extermination. 17 And he shall set his face to come with the strength of his whole kingdom, but shall make an agreement with him; and he shall give him the daughter of women, to destroy it; but it shall not stand, neither be for him. 18 After this shall he set his face unto the

84


isles, and shall take many; but a captain shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; yea, he shall cause his own reproach to return upon him. 19 Then he shall turn his face toward the strongholds of his own land; but he shall stumble and fall, and shall not be found. 20 Then shall stand up in his place one that shall cause an exactor to pass through the glory of the kingdom; but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.

-

-

21 And in his place shall stand up a contemptible person, upon whom had not been conferred the majesty of the kingdom; but he shall come in time of security, and shall obtain the kingdom by blandishments.

-

22 And the arms of the flood shall be swept away from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant. -

24 In time of security shall he come even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers' fathers: he shall scatter among them prey, and spoil, and substance; yea, he shall devise his devices against fortresses, but only until the time.

-

-

-

-

85

23 And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully; and he shall come up and become strong, with a little nation.

25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall stir himself up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand, for they shall devise devices against him. 26 Yea, they that eat of his food shall destroy him, and his army shall be swept away; and many shall fall down slain. 27 And as for both these kings, their hearts


shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper, for the end remaineth yet for the time appointed.

-

28 And he shall return to his own land with great substance; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do his pleasure, and return to his own land.

-

29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come into the south; but it shall not be in the latter time as it was in the former.

-

-

30 For ships of Kittim shall come against him, and he shall be cowed, and he shall return, and have indignation against the holy covenant, and shall do his pleasure; and he shall return, and have regard unto them that forsake the holy covenant.

-

31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall profane the sanctuary, even the stronghold, and shall take away the continual burnt-offering, and they shall set up the detestable thing that causeth appalment. 32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall be corrupt by blandishments; but the people that know their God shall show strength, and prevail. 33 And they that are wise among the people shall cause the many to understand; yet they shall stumble by the sword and by flame, by captivity and by spoil, many days.

--

34 Now when they shall stumble, they shall be helped with a little help; but many shall join themselves unto them with blandishments. --

-

86

-

35 And some of them that are wise shall stumble, to refine among them, and to purify, and to make white, even to the time of the end; for it is yet for the time


appointed. 36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak strange things against the God of gods; and he shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished; for that which is determined shall be done.

- -

-

-

-

-

-

--

-

37 Neither shall he regard the gods of his fathers; and neither the desire of women, nor any god, shall he regard; for he shall magnify himself above all. 38 But in his place shall he honour the god of strongholds; and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and costly things. 39 And he shall deal with the strongest fortresses with the help of a foreign god; whom he shall acknowledge, shall increase glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for a price. 40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him; and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow, as he passes through.

--

41 He shall enter also into the beauteous land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall be delivered out of his hand, Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. 42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries; and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

--

87

43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his


steps. 44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall affright him; and he shall go forth with great fury to destroy and utterly to take away many. -

-

88

45 And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the beauteous holy mountain; and he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all; and when he is waxed strong through his riches, he shall stir up all against the realm of Greece.

-

3 And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will. 4 And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; but not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion wherewith he ruled; for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.

--

-

-

5 And the king of the south shall be strong, and one of his princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion.

-

6 And at the end of years they shall join themselves together; and the daughter of the king of the south shall come to the king of the north to make an agreement; but she shall not retain the strength of her arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm; but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begot her, and he that obtained her in those times.

-

7 But one of the shoots of her roots shall stand up in his place, and shall come unto the army, and shall enter into the stronghold of the king of the north, and shall deal with them, and shall prevail;

-

-

--

-

8 and also their gods, with their molten images, and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold, shall he bring into captivity into Egypt; and he shall desist some years from the king of the north. 9 And he shall come into the kingdom of the king of the south, but he shall return into his own land. 10 And his sons shall stir themselves up, and

92


shall assemble a multitude of great forces, and he shall come on, and overflow, as he passes through; and he shall return and stir himself up, even to his stronghold.

-

11 And the king of the south shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north; and he shall set forth a great multitude, but the multitude shall be given into his hand.

-

12 and the multitude shall be carried away, and his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down tens of thousands; but he shall not prevail. 13 And the king of the north shall again set forth a multitude, greater than the former; and he shall come on at the end of the times, even of years, with a great army and with much substance.

-

14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south; also the children of the violent among thy people shall lift themselves up to establish the vision; but they shall stumble.

--

15 And the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mound, and take a well-fortified city; and the arms of the south shall not withstand; and as for his chosen people, there shall be no strength in them to withstand. 16 But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him; and he shall stand in the beauteous land, and in his hand shall be extermination.

-

-

17 And he shall set his face to come with the strength of his whole kingdom, but shall make an agreement with him; and he shall give him the daughter of women, to destroy it; but it shall not stand, neither be for him. 18 After this shall he set his face unto the isles, and shall take many; but a captain shall

93


cause the reproach offered by him to cease; yea, he shall cause his own reproach to return upon him. 19 Then he shall turn his face toward the strongholds of his own land; but he shall stumble and fall, and shall not be found. 20 Then shall stand up in his place one that shall cause an exactor to pass through the glory of the kingdom; but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.

-

-

21 And in his place shall stand up a contemptible person, upon whom had not been conferred the majesty of the kingdom; but he shall come in time of security, and shall obtain the kingdom by blandishments.

-

22 And the arms of the flood shall be swept away from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant. -

24 In time of security shall he come even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers' fathers: he shall scatter among them prey, and spoil, and substance; yea, he shall devise his devices against fortresses, but only until the time.

-

-

-

-

94

23 And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully; and he shall come up and become strong, with a little nation.

25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall stir himself up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand, for they shall devise devices against him. 26 Yea, they that eat of his food shall destroy him, and his army shall be swept away; and many shall fall down slain. 27 And as for both these kings, their hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak


lies at one table; but it shall not prosper, for the end remaineth yet for the time appointed. 28 And he shall return to his own land with great substance; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do his pleasure, and return to his own land.

-

29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come into the south; but it shall not be in the latter time as it was in the former.

-

-

30 For ships of Kittim shall come against him, and he shall be cowed, and he shall return, and have indignation against the holy covenant, and shall do his pleasure; and he shall return, and have regard unto them that forsake the holy covenant.

-

31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall profane the sanctuary, even the stronghold, and shall take away the continual burnt-offering, and they shall set up the detestable thing that causeth appalment. 32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall be corrupt by blandishments; but the people that know their God shall show strength, and prevail. 33 And they that are wise among the people shall cause the many to understand; yet they shall stumble by the sword and by flame, by captivity and by spoil, many days.

--

34 Now when they shall stumble, they shall be helped with a little help; but many shall join themselves unto them with blandishments. --

-

95

-

35 And some of them that are wise shall stumble, to refine among them, and to purify, and to make white, even to the time of the end; for it is yet for the time appointed.


36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak strange things against the God of gods; and he shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished; for that which is determined shall be done.

- -

-

-

-

37 Neither shall he regard the gods of his fathers; and neither the desire of women, nor any god, shall he regard; for he shall magnify himself above all. 38 But in his place shall he honour the god of strongholds; and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and costly things. 39 And he shall deal with the strongest fortresses with the help of a foreign god; whom he shall acknowledge, shall increase glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for a price. 40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him; and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow, as he passes through.

-

41 He shall enter also into the beauteous - land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall be delivered out of his hand, Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. 42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries; and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

96

43 But he shall have power over the - treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

4 The waters nourished it, the deep made it to grow; her rivers ran round about her plantation, and she sent out her conduits unto all the trees of the field.

5 Therefore its stature was exalted above all the trees of the field; and its boughs were multiplied, and its branches became long, because of the multitude of waters, when it shot them forth.

1 Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help, and rely on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many, and in horsemen, because they are exceeding mighty; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD! 2 Yet He also is wise, and bringeth evil, and doth not call back His words; but will arise against the house of the evil-doers, and against the help of them that work iniquity. 3 Now the Egyptians are men, and not God, and their horses flesh, and


not spirit; so when the LORD shall stretch out His hand, both he that helpeth shall stumble, and he that is helped shall fall, and they all shall perish together. {S} -

4 For thus saith the LORD unto me: Like as the lion, or the young lion, growling over his prey, though a multitude of shepherds be called forth against him, will not be dismayed at their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them; so will the LORD of hosts come down to fight upon mount Zion, and upon the hill thereof.

30 For ships of Kittim shall come against him, and he shall be cowed, and he shall return, and have indignation against the holy covenant, and shall do his pleasure; and he shall return, and have regard unto them that forsake the holy covenant.

Japheth 28 And he shall return to his own land with great substance; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do his pleasure, and return to his own land. 29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come into the south; but it shall not be in the latter time as it was in the former

Events

Daniel Chapter 11 1 And as for me, in the first year of Darius the Mede, I stood up to be a supporter and a stronghold unto him.

--

-

2 And now will I declare unto thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all; and when he is waxed strong through his riches, he shall stir up all against the realm of Greece. 3 And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will.

119


4 And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; but not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion wherewith he ruled; for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.

--

-

-

-

6 And at the end of years they shall join themselves together; and the daughter of the king of the south shall come to the king of the north to make an agreement; but she shall not retain the strength of her arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm; but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begot her, and he that obtained her in those times.

-

7 But one of the shoots of her roots shall stand up in his place, and shall come unto the army, and shall enter into the stronghold of the king of the north, and shall deal with them, and shall prevail;

-

-

--

-

120

8 and also their gods, with their molten images, and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold, shall he bring into captivity into Egypt; and he shall desist some years from the king of the north. 9 And he shall come into the kingdom of the king of the south, but he shall return into his own land.

-

-

5 And the king of the south shall be strong, and one of his princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion.

10 And his sons shall stir themselves up, and shall assemble a multitude of great forces, and he shall come on, and overflow, as he passes through; and he shall return and stir himself up, even to his stronghold. 11 And the king of the south shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth


and fight with him, even with the king of the north; and he shall set forth a great multitude, but the multitude shall be given into his hand. 12 and the multitude shall be carried away, and his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down tens of thousands; but he shall not prevail. 13 And the king of the north shall again set forth a multitude, greater than the former; and he shall come on at the end of the times, even of years, with a great army and with much substance.

-

14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south; also the children of the violent among thy people shall lift themselves up to establish the vision; but they shall stumble.

--

15 And the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mound, and take a wellfortified city; and the arms of the south shall not withstand; and as for his chosen people, there shall be no strength in them to withstand. 16 But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him; and he shall stand in the beauteous land, and in his hand shall be extermination.

-

--

-

17 And he shall set his face to come with the strength of his whole kingdom, but shall make an agreement with him; and he shall give him the daughter of women, to destroy it; but it shall not stand, neither be for him. 18 After this shall he set his face unto the isles, and shall take many; but a captain shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; yea, he shall cause his own reproach to return upon him.

121


19 Then he shall turn his face toward the strongholds of his own land; but he shall stumble and fall, and shall not be found. 20 Then shall stand up in his place one that shall cause an exactor to pass through the glory of the kingdom; but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.

-

-

21 And in his place shall stand up a contemptible person, upon whom had not been conferred the majesty of the kingdom; but he shall come in time of security, and shall obtain the kingdom by blandishments.

-

22 And the arms of the flood shall be swept away from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant. -

24 In time of security shall he come even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers' fathers: he shall scatter among them prey, and spoil, and substance; yea, he shall devise his devices against fortresses, but only until the time.

-

-

-

-

122

23 And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully; and he shall come up and become strong, with a little nation.

25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall stir himself up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand, for they shall devise devices against him. 26 Yea, they that eat of his food shall destroy him, and his army shall be swept away; and many shall fall down slain. 27 And as for both these kings,


their hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper, for the end remaineth yet for the time appointed.

-

28 And he shall return to his own land with great substance; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do his pleasure, and return to his own land.

-

29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come into the south; but it shall not be in the latter time as it was in the former.

-

-

30 For ships of Kittim shall come against him, and he shall be cowed, and he shall return, and have indignation against the holy covenant, and shall do his pleasure; and he shall return, and have regard unto them that forsake the holy covenant.

-

31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall profane the sanctuary, even the stronghold, and shall take away the continual burnt-offering, and they shall set up the detestable thing that causeth appalment. 32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall be corrupt by blandishments; but the people that know their God shall show strength, and prevail. --

33 And they that are wise among the people shall cause the many to understand; yet they shall stumble by the sword and by flame, by captivity and by spoil, many days. 34 Now when they shall stumble, they shall be helped with a little help; but many shall join themselves unto them

123


with blandishments. --

-

-

36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak strange things against the God of gods; and he shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished; for that which is determined shall be done.

- -

-

35 And some of them that are wise shall stumble, to refine among them, and to purify, and to make white, even to the time of the end; for it is yet for the time appointed.

-

-

-

-

37 Neither shall he regard the gods of his fathers; and neither the desire of women, nor any god, shall he regard; for he shall magnify himself above all. 38 But in his place shall he honour the god of strongholds; and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and costly things.

--

39 And he shall deal with the strongest fortresses with the help of a foreign god; whom he shall acknowledge, shall increase glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for a price.

-

40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him; and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow, as he passes through. --

124

41 He shall enter also into the beauteous land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall be delivered out of his hand, Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.


42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries; and the land of Egypt shall not escape. --

43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. 44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall affright him; and he shall go forth with great fury to destroy and utterly to take away many.

1 The vision of Obadiah. Thus saith the Lord GOD concerning Edom: We have heard a message from the LORD, and an ambassador is sent among the nations:


'Arise ye, and let us rise up against her in battle.' 2 Behold, I make thee small among the nations; thou art greatly despised. 3 The pride of thy heart hath beguiled thee, O thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, thy habitation on high; that sayest in thy heart: 'Who shall bring me down to the ground?'

-

--

-

-

4 Though thou make thy nest as high as the eagle, and though thou set it among the stars, I will bring thee down from thence, saith the LORD.

-

5 If thieves came to thee, if robbers by night--how art thou cut off!--would they not steal till they had enough? If grapegatherers came to thee, would they not leave some gleaning grapes?

-

--

-

-

6 How is Esau searched out! How are his hidden places sought out! --

-

--

7 All the men of thy confederacy have conducted thee to the border; the men that were at peace with thee have beguiled thee, and prevailed against thee; they that eat thy bread lay a snare under thee, in whom there is no discernment. 8 Shall I not in that day, saith the LORD, destroy the wise men out of Edom, and discernment out of the mount of Esau?

-

9 And thy mighty men, O Teman, shall be dismayed, to the end that every one may be cut off from the mount of Esau by slaughter.

-

10 For the violence done to thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever. - --

154

-

11 In the day that thou didst stand aloof, in the day that strangers carried away his substance, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even


thou wast as one of them. -

-

-

12 But thou shouldest not have gazed on the day of thy brother in the day of his disaster, neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress.

-

-

-

-

-

13 Thou shouldest not have entered into the gate of My people in the day of their calamity; yea, thou shouldest not have gazed on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity.

-

-

-

-

-

- -

-

14 Neither shouldest thou have stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his that escape; neither shouldest thou have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress.

-

-

15 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the nations; as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee; thy dealing shall return upon thine own head.

-

16 For as ye have drunk upon My holy mountain, so shall all the nations drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and swallow down, and shall be as though they had not been.

-

17 But in mount Zion there shall be those that escape, and it shall be holy; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. 18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken.

10 But they rebelled, and grieved His holy spirit; therefore He was turned to be their enemy, Himself fought against them. 11 Then His people remembered the days of old, the days of Moses: 'Where is He that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherds of His flock? Where is He that put His holy spirit in the midst of them? 12 That caused His glorious arm to go at the right hand of Moses? That divided the water before them, to make Himself an everlasting name?

158


13 That led them through the deep, as a horse in the wilderness, without stumbling? 14 As the cattle that go down into the valley, the spirit of the LORD caused them to rest; so didst Thou lead Thy people, to make Thyself a glorious name.'

--

15 Look down from heaven, and see, even from Thy holy and glorious habitation; Where is Thy zeal and Thy mighty acts, the yearning of Thy heart and Thy compassions, now restrained toward me? --

1 And as for me, in the first year of Darius the Mede, I stood up to be a supporter and a stronghold unto him.

--

2 And now will I declare unto thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all; and when he is waxed strong through his riches, he shall stir up all against the realm of Greece.

-

3 And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will. 4 And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; but not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion wherewith he ruled; for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.

--

-

-

5 And the king of the south shall be strong, and one of his princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion.

-

6 And at the end of years they shall join themselves together; and the daughter of the king of the south shall come to the king of the north to make an agreement; but she shall not retain the strength of her arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm; but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begot her, and he that obtained her in those times.

-

7 But one of the shoots of her roots shall stand up in his place, and shall come unto the army, and shall enter into the stronghold of the king of the north, and shall deal with them, and shall prevail;

8 and also their gods, with their molten images, and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold, shall he bring into captivity into Egypt; and he shall desist some years from the king of the north.


9 And he shall come into the kingdom of the king of the south, but he shall return into his own land.

-

10 And his sons shall stir themselves up, and shall assemble a multitude of great forces, and he shall come on, and overflow, as he passes through; and he shall return and stir himself up, even to his stronghold.

-

11 And the king of the south shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north; and he shall set forth a great multitude, but the multitude shall be given into his hand.

-

12 and the multitude shall be carried away, and his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down tens of thousands; but he shall not prevail. 13 And the king of the north shall again set forth a multitude, greater than the former; and he shall come on at the end of the times, even of years, with a great army and with much substance.

-

14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south; also the children of the violent among thy people shall lift themselves up to establish the vision; but they shall stumble.

--

15 And the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mound, and take a wellfortified city; and the arms of the south shall not withstand; and as for his chosen people, there shall be no strength in them to withstand. -

16 But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him; and he shall stand in the beauteous land, and in his hand shall be extermination. 17 And he shall set his face to come with the strength of his whole kingdom, but


shall make an agreement with him; and he shall give him the daughter of women, to destroy it; but it shall not stand, neither be for him. 18 After this shall he set his face unto the isles, and shall take many; but a captain shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; yea, he shall cause his own reproach to return upon him. 19 Then he shall turn his face toward the strongholds of his own land; but he shall stumble and fall, and shall not be found. 20 Then shall stand up in his place one that shall cause an exactor to pass through the glory of the kingdom; but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.

-

-

21 And in his place shall stand up a contemptible person, upon whom had not been conferred the majesty of the kingdom; but he shall come in time of security, and shall obtain the kingdom by blandishments.

-

22 And the arms of the flood shall be swept away from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant. -

-

24 In time of security shall he come even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers' fathers: he shall scatter among them prey, and spoil, and substance; yea, he shall devise his devices against fortresses, but only until the time.

163

23 And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully; and he shall come up and become strong, with a little nation.

25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall stir himself up to battle with a very


great and mighty army; but he shall not stand, for they shall devise devices against him. -

27 And as for both these kings, their hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper, for the end remaineth yet for the time appointed.

-

28 And he shall return to his own land with great substance; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do his pleasure, and return to his own land.

-

29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come into the south; but it shall not be in the latter time as it was in the former.

-

-

26 Yea, they that eat of his food shall destroy him, and his army shall be swept away; and many shall fall down slain.

30 For ships of Kittim shall come against him, and he shall be cowed, and he shall return, and have indignation against the holy covenant, and shall do his pleasure; and he shall return, and have regard unto them that forsake the holy covenant.

-

31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall profane the sanctuary, even the stronghold, and shall take away the continual burnt-offering, and they shall set up the detestable thing that causeth appalment. 32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall be corrupt by blandishments; but the people that know their God shall show strength, and prevail. --

33 And they that are wise among the people shall cause the many to understand; yet they shall stumble by the sword and by flame, by captivity and by spoil, many days. 34 Now when they shall stumble, they

164


shall be helped with a little help; but many shall join themselves unto them with blandishments. --

-

-

36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak strange things against the God of gods; and he shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished; for that which is determined shall be done.

- -

- -

35 And some of them that are wise shall stumble, to refine among them, and to purify, and to make white, even to the time of the end; for it is yet for the time appointed.

37 Neither shall he regard the gods of his fathers; and neither the desire of women, nor any god, shall he regard; for he shall magnify himself above all. 38 But in his place shall he honour the god of strongholds; and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and costly things. 39 And he shall deal with the strongest fortresses with the help of a foreign god; whom he shall acknowledge, shall increase glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for a price. 40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him; and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow, as he passes through.

--

165

41 He shall enter also into the beauteous land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall be delivered out of his hand, Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.


42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries; and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall affright him; and he shall go forth with great fury to destroy and utterly to take away many. -

bring thee upon the mountains of Israel; 3 and I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. -

4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the peoples that are with thee; I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort and to the beasts of the field, to be devoured.

Gog and all his multitude; and they shall call it the valley of Hamon-gog. 12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying them, that they may cleanse the land.

24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions did I unto them; and I hid My face from them. {S} 25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD: Now will I bring back the captivity of Jacob, and have compassion upon the whole house of Israel; and I will be jealous for My holy name.

31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall profane the sanctuary, even the stronghold, and shall take away the continual burnt-offering, and they shall set up the detestable thing that causeth appalment. 32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall be corrupt by blandishments; but the people that know their God shall show strength, and prevail. 33 And they that are wise among the people shall cause the many to understand; yet they shall stumble by the sword and by flame, by captivity and by spoil, many days.

37 Neither shall he regard the gods of his fathers; and neither the desire of women, nor any god, shall he regard; for he shall magnify himself above all. 38 But in his place shall he honour the god of strongholds; and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and costly things. 39 And he shall deal with the strongest


fortresses with the help of a foreign god; whom he shall acknowledge, shall increase glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for a price. 40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him; and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow, as he passes through. 41 He shall enter also into the beauteous land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall be delivered out of his hand, Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.

42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries; and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

The Book of Judges 6 And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedesh-naphtali, and said unto him: 'Hath not the LORD, the God of Israel, commanded, saying: Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun? 16 But Barak pursued after the chariots, and after the host, unto Harosheth-goiim; and all the host of Sisera fell by the edge of the sword; there was not a man left.

20 They fought from heaven, the stars in their courses fought against Sisera.

* As the war with Sisera : The Book of Judges explains that in this war,stars fought in their courses. “Star constellations” were called “gods”.The Zohar indicated that one of the stars in Pleaides switched with one in the Big Dipper.

5 And she sat under the palm-tree of Deborah between Ramah and Beth-el in the hill-country of Ephraim; and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment. 6 And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedesh-naphtali, and said unto him: 'Hath not the LORD, the God of Israel, commanded, saying: Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun?

-

-

2 And the LORD gave them over into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, that reigned in Hazor; the captain of whose host was Sisera, who dwelt in Harosheth-goiim.

-

-

7 And I will draw unto thee to the brook Kishon Sisera, the captain of Jabin's army, with his chariots and his multitude; and I will deliver him into thy hand.


-

8 And Barak said unto her: 'If thou wilt go with me, then I will go; but if thou wilt not go with me, I will not go.'

-

-

--

-

-

10 And Barak called Zebulun and Naphtali together to Kedesh; and there went up ten thousand men at his feet; and Deborah went up with him.

-

-

11 Now Heber the Kenite had severed himself from the Kenites, even from the children of Hobab the father-in-law of Moses, and had pitched his tent as far as Elon-bezaanannim, which is by Kedesh.

-

-

12 And they told Sisera that Barak the son of Abinoam was gone up to mount Tabor.

- --

-

- -

-

14 And Deborah said unto Barak: 'Up; for this is the day in which the LORD hath delivered Sisera into thy hand; is not the LORD gone out before thee?' So Barak went down from mount Tabor, and ten thousand men after him.

-

--

--

13 And Sisera gathered together all his chariots, even nine hundred chariots of iron, and all the people that were with him, from Harosheth-goiim, unto the brook Kishon.

207

9 And she said: 'I will surely go with thee; notwithstanding the journey that thou takest shall not be for thy honour; for the LORD will give Sisera over into the hand of a woman.' And Deborah arose, and went with Barak to Kedesh.

15 And the LORD discomfited Sisera, and all his chariots, and all his host, with the edge of the sword before Barak; and Sisera alighted from his chariot, and fled away on his feet. 16 But Barak pursued after the chariots, and after the host, unto Harosheth-goiim; and all the host of Sisera fell by the edge of the sword; there was not a man left.


17 Howbeit Sisera fled away on his feet to the tent of Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite; for there was peace between Jabin the king of Hazor and the house of Heber the Kenite.

-

18 And Jael went out to meet Sisera, and said unto him: 'Turn in, my lord, turn in to me; fear not.' And he turned in unto her into the tent, and she covered him with a rug.

-

--

19 And he said unto her: 'Give me, I pray thee, a little water to drink; for I am thirsty.' And she opened a bottle of milk, and gave him drink, and covered him.

-

20 And he said unto her: 'Stand in the door of the tent, and it shall be, when any man doth come and inquire of thee, and say: Is there any man here? that thou shalt say: No.'

--

-

-

-

21 Then Jael Heber's wife took a tent-pin, and took a hammer in her hand, and went softly unto him, and smote the pin into his temples, and it pierced through into the ground; for he was in a deep sleep; so he swooned and died.

-

-

-

--

22 And, behold, as Barak pursued Sisera, Jael came out to meet him, and said unto him: 'Come, and I will show thee the man whom thou seekest.' And he came unto her; and, behold, Sisera lay dead, and the tentpin was in his temples. 23 So God subdued on that day Jabin the king of Canaan before the children of Israel.

-

-

--

24 And the hand of the children of Israel prevailed more and more against Jabin the king of Canaan, until they had destroyed Jabin king of Canaan. {P}

Judges Chapter 5 -

208

1 Then sang Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam on that day, saying:


2 When men let grow their hair in Israel, when the people offer themselves willingly, bless ye the LORD. 3 Hear, O ye kings; give ear, O ye princes; I, unto the LORD will I sing; I will sing praise to the LORD, the God of Israel. -

4 LORD, when Thou didst go forth out of Seir, when Thou didst march out of the field of Edom, the earth trembled, the heavens also dropped, yea, the clouds dropped water. 5 The mountains quaked at the presence of the LORD, even yon Sinai at the presence of the LORD, the God of Israel.

--

6 In the days of Shamgar the son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the highways ceased, and the travellers walked through byways.

--

7 The rulers ceased in Israel, they ceased, until that thou didst arise, Deborah, that thou didst arise a mother in Israel.

--

-

8 They chose new gods; then was war in the gates; was there a shield or spear seen among forty thousand in Israel? 9 My heart is toward the governors of Israel, that offered themselves willingly among the people. Bless ye the LORD.

--

-

10 Ye that ride on white asses, ye that sit on rich cloths, and ye that walk by the way, tell of it; 11 Louder than the voice of archers, by the watering-troughs! there shall they rehearse the righteous acts of the LORD, even the righteous acts of His rulers in Israel. Then the people of the LORD went down to the gates.

-

209

12 Awake, awake, Deborah; awake, awake, utter a song; arise, Barak, and lead thy captivity captive, thou son of Abinoam. 13 Then made He a remnant to have


dominion over the nobles and the people; the LORD made me have dominion over the mighty. 14 Out of Ephraim came they whose root is in Amalek; after thee, Benjamin, among thy peoples; out of Machir came down governors, and out of Zebulun they that handle the marshal's staff. 15 And the princes of Issachar were with Deborah; as was Issachar, so was Barak; into the valley they rushed forth at his feet. Among the divisions of Reuben there were great resolves of heart.

-

16 Why sattest thou among the sheepfolds, to hear the pipings for the flocks? At the divisions of Reuben there were great searchings of heart. 17 Gilead abode beyond the Jordan; and Dan, why doth he sojourn by the ships? Asher dwelt at the shore of the sea, and abideth by its bays. 18 Zebulun is a people that jeoparded their lives unto the death, and Naphtali, upon the high places of the field.

--

19 The kings came, they fought; then fought the kings of Canaan, in Taanach by the waters of Megiddo; they took no gain of money.

-

20 They fought from heaven, the stars in their courses fought against Sisera. 21 The brook Kishon swept them away, that ancient brook, the brook Kishon. O my soul, tread them down with strength. -

--

210

22 Then did the horsehoofs stamp by reason of the prancings, the prancings of their mighty ones. 23 'Curse ye Meroz', said the angel of the LORD, 'Curse ye bitterly the inhabitants thereof, because they came not to the help of the LORD, to the help of the LORD


against the mighty.' 24 Blessed above women shall Jael be, the wife of Heber the Kenite, above women in the tent shall she be blessed.

--

25 Water he asked, milk she gave him; in a lordly bowl she brought him curd. 26 Her hand she put to the tent-pin, and her right hand to the workmen's hammer; and with the hammer she smote Sisera, she smote through his head, yea, she pierced and struck through his temples. 27 At her feet he sunk, he fell, he lay; at her feet he sunk, he fell; where he sunk, there he fell down dead. 28 Through the window she looked forth, and peered, the mother of Sisera, through the lattice: 'Why is his chariot so long in coming? Why tarry the wheels of his chariots?

--

29 The wisest of her princesses answer her, yea, she returneth answer to herself:

-

--

-

211

30 'Are they not finding, are they not dividing the spoil? A damsel, two damsels to every man; to Sisera a spoil of dyed garments, a spoil of dyed garments of embroidery, two dyed garments of broidery for the neck of every spoiler?' 31 So perish all Thine enemies, O LORD; but they that love Him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might. And the land had rest forty years. {P}

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. 21. The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. 22. For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness. 23. For the Lord God of hosts shall make a consumption, even determined, in the midst of all the land. 24. Therefore thus saith the Lord God of hosts, O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian: he shall smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt. 25. For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and mine anger in their destruction. 26. And the Lord of hosts shall stir up a scourge for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb: and as his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt. Isaiah 11:11.

Zephaniah 2 1. Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired; 2. Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord come upon you, before the day of the Lord's anger come upon you. 3. Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord's anger. 4. For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up. 5. Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the Lord is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant. 6. And the sea coast shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks. 7. And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the Lord their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity. 8. I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the revilings of the children of Ammon, whereby they have reproached my people, and magnified themselves against their border. 9. Therefore as I live, saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them. 10. This shall they have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of the Lord of hosts. 11. The Lord will be terrible unto them: for he will famish all the gods of the earth; and men shall worship him, every one from his place, even all the isles of the heathen. 12. Ye Ethiopians also, ye shall be slain by my sword. 13. And he will stretch out his hand against the north, and destroy Assyria; and will make Nineveh a desolation, and dry like a wilderness. 14. And flocks shall lie down in the midst of her, all the beasts of the nations: both the cormorant and the bittern shall lodge in the upper lintels of it; their voice shall sing in the windows; desolation shall be in the thresholds; for he shall uncover the cedar work.

11. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O Lord. 12. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. 13. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. 14. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. 15. The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. 17. So shall ye know that I am the Lord your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more. 18. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the Lord, and shall water the valley of Shittim. 19. Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.
