GOLD YAHDAIM MISSION STATEMENT

Book of Jubilees, also called the Little Genesis, pseudepigraphal work (not included in any canon of scripture), most notable for its chronological schema, by which events described in Genesis on through Exodus 12 are dated by jubilees of 49 years, each of which is composed of seven cycles of seven years. The institution of a jubilee calendar supposedly would ensure the observance of Hebrew festivals and Set-Apart days on the proper dates and, by setting Hebrews apart from their Gentile neighbors, would emphasize the Old Testament picture of Yahdaim as the Covenant Community of Yah.

Mount Sinai1

The Book of Jubilees present “the history of the division of the days of the Law, of the events of the years, the year-weeks, and the jubilees of the world” as revealed to Moses (in addition to the Torah or “Instruction”) by angels while he was on Mount Sinai for forty days and forty nights.[2] The chronology given in Jubilees is based on multiples of seven; the jubilees are periods of 49 years (seven “year-weeks”), into which all of time has been divided.
In addition to paraphrasing and embellishing on Genesis, Jubilees also relates stories explaining the origin of contemporary Hebrew Laws and customs. An older origin is attributed to the Mosaic Law and many of the legal precepts in Leviticus by asserting that the patriarchs in Genesis observed Laws and festivals that actually came into existence after the age of the patriarchs.

Manuscripts

Until the discovery of extensive fragments among the Dead Sea Scrolls, the earliest surviving manuscripts of Jubilees were four complete Ge’ez texts dating to the 15th and 16th centuries. There is also a preserved fragment of a Latin translation of the Greek that contains about a quarter of the whole work.[3] The Ethiopic texts, now numbering twenty-seven, are the primary basis for translations into English. Passages in the texts of Jubilees that are directly parallel to verses in Genesis do not directly reproduce either of the two surviving manuscript traditions

“And for your cattle, and for the beast that are in your land, shall all the increase thereof be meat.”

“And you shall number seven Sabbaths of years unto you, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be unto you forty and nine years.”

“Then shall you cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the Day of Atonement shall you make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.”

“And you shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and you shall return every man unto his possession, and you shall return every man unto his family.”

“A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you: you shall not sow, neither reap that which grow of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of your vine undressed.”

“For it is the jubilee; it shall be Set-Apart unto you: you shall eat the increase thereof out of the field.”

“In the year of this jubilee you shall return every man unto his possession.”

GOLD YAHDAIM MISSION STATEMENT

Meditation

Isaac, Ishmal, and Yahgob celebrate the feast of first fruits at Beersheba with Abraham, 1-5. Prayer of Abraham, 6-9. Abraham’s last words to and blessings of Yahgob, 10-30.
[Chapter 22]
  1. And it came to pass in the first week in the forty-fourth jubilee, in the second year, that is, the year in which Abraham died, that Isaac and Ishmael came from the Well of the Oath to celebrate the Feast of Weeks -that is, the feast of the first fruits of the harvest-to Abraham, their father, and Abraham delighted because his two sons had come.
  2. For Isaac had many possessions in Beersheba, and Isaac was wont to go and see his possessions and to return to his father.
  3. And in those days Ishmael came to see his father, and they both came together, and Isaac offered a sacrifice for a burnt offering, and presented it on the altar of his father which he had made in Hebron.
  4. And he offered a thank offering and made a feast before Ishmael, his brother: and Rebecca made new cakes from the new grain, and gave them to Yahgob, her son, to take them to Abraham, his father, from the first fruits of the land, that he might eat and bless the Creator of all things before he died.
  5. And Isaac, too, sent by the hand of Yahgob to Abraham a best thank offering, that he might eat and drink.
  6. And he eat and drank, and blessed the Most High Yah,
Who has created heaven and earth,
Who has made all the fat things of the earth,
And given them to the children of men

That they might eat and drink and bless their Creator.

  1. ‘And now I give thanks unto You, my Yah, because You has caused me to see this day: Behold! I am one hundred three score and fifteen years, an old man and full of days, and all my days have been unto me peace.
  2. The sword of the adversary has not overcome me in all that You has given me and my children all the days of my life until this day.
  3. My Yah, may Your mercy and Your peace be upon Your servant, and upon the seed of his sons, that they may be to You a chosen nation and an inheritance from amongst all the nations of the earth from henceforth unto all the days of the generations of the earth, unto all the ages.’
  4. And he called Yahgob and said: ‘My son Yahgob, may Yah of all bless you and strengthen you to do righteousness, and His will before Him, and may He choose you and your seed that you may become a people for His inheritance according to His will always.
  5. And do you, my son, Yahgob, draw near and kiss me.’ And he drew near and kissed him, and he said:
‘Blessed be my son Yahgob
And all the sons of Yah Most High, unto all the ages:
May Yah give unto you a seed of righteousness;
And some of your sons may He sanctify in the midst of the whole earth;
May nations serve you,
And all the nations bow themselves before your seed.
  1. Be strong in the presence of men,
    And exercise authority over all the seed of Seth.
Then your ways and the ways of your sons will be justified,
So that they shall become a honored nation.
  1. May the Most High Yah give you all the blessings
    Wherewith He has blessed me
And wherewith He blessed Noah and Adam;
May they rest on the sacred head of your seed from generation to generation forever.
  1. And may He cleanse you from all unrighteousness and impurity,
    That you may be forgiven all the transgressions; which you has committed ignorantly.
And may He strengthen you,
And bless you.
And may you inherit the whole earth,
  1. And may He renew His Covenant with you.
    That you may be to Him a nation for His inheritance for all the ages,
    And that He may be to you and to your seed a Almighty in truth and righteousness throughout all the days of the earth.
  2. And do you, my son Yahgob, remember my words,
    And observe the Commandments of Abraham, your father:
Separate yourself from the nations,
And eat not with them:
And do not according to their works,
And become not their associate;
For their works are unclean,
And all their ways are a Pollution and an abomination and uncleanness.
  1. They offer their sacrifices to the dead
    And they worship evil spirits,
And they eat over the graves,
And all their works are vanity and nothingness.
  1. They have no heart to understand
    And their eyes do not see what their works are,
And how they err in saying to a piece of wood: ‘Thou art my God,’
And to a stone: ‘Thou art my Lord and thou art my deliverer.’
[And they have no heart.]
  1. And as for you, my son Yahgob,
    May the Most High Yah help you
    And Yah of heaven bless you
    And remove you from their uncleanness and from all their error.
  2. Be you aware, my son Yahgob, of taking a wife from any seed of the daughters of Canaan;
For all his seed is to be rooted out of the earth.
  1. For, owing to the transgression of Ham, Canaan erred,
    And all his seed shall be destroyed from off the earth and all the residue thereof,
    And none springing from him shall be saved on the Day of Judgment.
  2. And as for all the worshippers of idols and the profane
    (b) There shall be no hope for them in the land of the living;
    (c) And there shall be no remembrance of them on the earth;
    (c) For they shall descend into Sheol,
    (d) And into the place of condemnation shall they go,
As the children of Sodom were taken away from the earth
So will all those who worship idols be taken away.
  1. Fear not, my son Yahgob,
    And be not dismayed, O’ son of Abraham:
May the Most High Yah preserve you from destruction,
And from all the paths of error may he deliver you.
  1. This house have I built for myself that I might put my name upon it in the earth: [it is given to you and to your seed forever], and it will be named the house of Abraham; it is given to you and to your seed forever; for you will build my house and establish my name before Yah for ever: your seed and your name will stand throughout all generations of the earth.’
  2. And he ceased commanding him and blessing him.
  3. And the two lay together on one bed, and Yahgob slept in the bosom of Abraham, his father’s father and he kissed him seven times, and his affection and his heart delighted over him.
  4. And he blessed him with all his heart and said: ‘The Most High Yah, the Almighty of all, and Creator of all, who brought me forth from Ur of the Chaldees that he might give me this land to inherit it forever, and that I might establish a righteous seed-blessed be the Most High forever.’
  5. And he blessed Yahgob and said: ‘My son, over whom with all my heart and my affection I delight, may your kindness and Your mercy be lift up upon him and upon his seed always.
  6. And do not forsake him, nor set him at naught from henceforth unto the days of eternity, and may Your eyes be opened upon him and upon his seed, that You may preserve him, and bless him, and may sanctify him as a nation for Your inheritance;
And bless him with all Your blessings from henceforth unto all the days of eternity, and renew Your Covenant and Your mercy with him and with his seed according to all Your good pleasure unto all the generations of the earth.’

This is the history of the division of the days of the Law and of the testimony, of the events of the years, of their (year) weeks, of their Jubilees throughout all the years of the world, as the Almighty Yah spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai when he went up to receive the Tables of the Law and of the Commandment, according to the voice of Yah as he said unto him, ‘Go up to the top of the Mount.’
[Chapter 1]
  1. And it came to pass in the first year of the exodus of the children of Yahdaim out of Egypt, in the third month, on the sixteenth day of the month, [2450 Anno Mundi] that Yah spoke to Moses, saying: ‘Come up to Me on the Mount, and I will give thee two tables of stone of the Law and of the Commandment, which I have written, that you may teach them.’
  2. And Moses went up into the Mount of Yah, and the Honor of Yah abode on Mount Sinai, and a cloud overshadowed it six days.
  3. And He called to Moses on the seventh day out of the midst of the cloud, and the appearance of Yah was like a flaming fire on the top of the mount.
  4. And Moses was on the Mount forty days and forty nights, and Yah taught him the earlier and the later history of the division of all the days of the Law and of the testimony.
  5. And He said: ‘Incline your heart to every word which I shall speak to you on this mount, and write them in a book in order that their generations may see how I have not forsaken them for all the evil which they have worked in transgressing the Covenant which I establish between Me and you for their generations this day on Mount Sinai.
  6. And thus it will come to pass when all these things come upon them, that they will recognize that I am more righteous than they in all their judgments and in all their actions, and they will recognize that I have been truly with them.
  7. And do you write for yourself all these words which I declare unto, you this day, for I know their rebellion and their stiff neck, before I bring them into the land of which I swore to their fathers, to Abraham and to Isaac and to Yahgob, saying: ‘ Unto your seed will I give a land flowing with milk and honey.
  8. And they will eat and be satisfied, and they will turn to strange gods, to (gods) which cannot deliver them from aught of their tribulation: and this witness shall be heard for a witness against them. For they will forget all My Commandments, (even) all that I Command them, and they will walk after the Gentiles, and after their uncleanness, and after their shame, and will serve their gods, and these will prove unto them an offence and a tribulation and an affliction and a snare!
  9. And many will perish and they will be taken captive, and will fall into the hands of the enemy, because they have forsaken My Ordinances and My Commandments, and the Festivals of My Covenant, and My Sabbaths, and My place which I have hallowed for Myself in their midst, and My Tabernacle, and My Sanctuary, which I have hallowed for Myself in the midst of the land, that I should set My Name upon it, and that it should dwell (there).
  10. And they will make to themselves high places and groves and graven images, and they will worship, each his own (graven image), so as to go astray, and they will sacrifice their children to demons, and to all the works of the error of their hearts.
  11. And I will send witnesses unto them that I may witness against them but they will not hear, and will slay the witnesses also, and they will persecute those who seek the Law, and they will abrogate and change everything so as to work evil before My eyes.
  12. And I will hide My Face from them, and I will deliver them into the hand of the Gentiles for captivity, and for a prey, and for devouring, and I will remove them from the midst of the land, and I will scatter them amongst the Gentiles.
  13. And they will forget all My Law and all My Commandments and all My Judgments, and will go astray as to new moons, and Sabbaths, and Festivals, and jubilees, and Ordinances.
  14. And after this they will turn to Me from amongst the Gentiles with all their heart and with all their soul and with all their strength, and I will gather them from amongst all the Gentiles, and they will seek Me, so that I shall be found of them, when they seek Me with all their heart and with all their soul.
  15. And I will disclose to them abounding peace with righteousness, and I will remove them the plant of uprightness, with all My Heart and with all My Soul, and they shall be for a blessing and not for a curse, and they shall be the head and not the tail.
  16. And I will build My Sanctuary in their midst, and I will dwell with them, and I will be their Almighty and they shall be My People in truth and righteousness.
  17. And I will not forsake them nor fail them; for I am Yah their Almighty!’
  18. And Moses fell on his face and prayed and said, ‘O Yah! My Almighty, do not forsake your people and your inheritance, so that they should wander in the error of their hearts, and do not deliver them into the hands of their enemies, the Gentiles, lest they should rule over them and cause them to transgress against You.
  19. Let Your mercy, O’ Yah, be lifted up upon Your People, and create in them an upright Ruach (spirit), and let not the spirit of Beliar rule over them to accuse them before You, and to ensnare them from all the paths of righteousness, so that they may perish from before Your Face.
  20. But they are Your People and Your inheritance, which You has delivered with Your Great Power from the hands of the Egyptians: create in them a clean heart and spirit, and let them not be ensnared in their wickedness from henceforth until eternity.’
  21. And Yah said unto Moses: ‘I know their contrariness and their thoughts and their stiffneckedness, and they will not be obedient till they confess their own wickedness and the wickedness of their fathers.
  22. And after this they will turn to Me in all uprightness and with all (their) heart and with all (their) soul, and I will circumcise the foreskin of their heart and the foreskin of the heart of their seed, and I will create in them a spirit, and I will cleanse them so that they shall not turn away from Me from that day unto eternity.
  23. And their souls will cleave to Me and to all My Commandments, and they will fulfil My Commandments, and I will be their Father and they shall be My children.
  24. And they all shall be called children of the living Yah, and every angel and every spirit shall know, yea, they shall know that these are My children, and that I am their Father in uprightness and righteousness, and that I love them.
  25. And do you write down for yourself all these Words which I declare unto you on this mountain, the first and the last, which shall come to pass in all the divisions of the days in the Law and in the testimony and in the weeks and the Jubilees unto eternity, until I descend and dwell with them throughout eternity.’
  26. And He said to the angel of the presence: Write for Moses from the beginning of creation till My Sanctuary has been built among them for all eternity.
  27. And I Yah will appear to the eyes of all, and all shall know that I am Yah of Yahdaim and the Father of all the children of Yahgob, and King on Mount Sion for all eternity. And Sion and Yahrusalem shall be Set-Apart.’
  28. And the angel of the presence who went before the camp of Yahdaim took the tables of the divisions of the years -from the time of the creation- of the Law and of the testimony of the weeks of the jubilees, according to the individual years, according to all the number of the Jubilees [according, to the individual years], from the day of the [new] creation when the heavens and the earth shall be renewed and all their creation according to the powers of the heaven, and according to all the creation of the earth, until the Sanctuary of Yah shall be made in Yahrusalem on Mount Sion, and all the luminaries be renewed for healing and for peace and for blessing for all the elect of Yahdaim, and that thus it may be from that day and unto all the days of the earth.

Genesis in The Beginning 1

 

The history of the twenty-two distinct acts of creation on the six days, 1-16. Institution of the Sabbath: its observance by the highest angels, with whom Yahdaim is afterwards to be associated, 17-32. (cf. Gen. i-ii. 3.)
[Chapter 2]
  1. And the angel of the presence spoke to Moses according to the word of Yah, saying: Write the complete history of the creation, how in six days Yah Almighty finished all His works and all that He created, and kept Sabbath on the seventh day and hallowed it for all ages, and appointed it as a sign for all His works.
  2. For on the first day He created the heavens which are above and the earth and the waters and all the spirits which serve before him -the angels of the presence, and the angels of sanctification, and the angels [of the spirit of fire and the angels] of the spirit of the winds, and the angels of the spirit of the clouds, and of darkness, and of snow and of hail and of hoar frost, and the angels of the voices and of the thunder and of the lightning, and the angels of the spirits of cold and of heat, and of winter and of spring and of autumn and of summer and of all the spirits of His creatures which are in the heavens and on the earth, (He created) the abysses and the darkness, eventide <and night>, and the light, dawn and day, which He has prepared in the knowledge of His heart.
  3. And thereupon we saw His works, and praised Him, and lauded before Him on account of all His works; for seven great works did He create on the first day.
  4. And on the second day He created the firmament in the midst of the waters, and the waters were divided on that day -half of them went up above and half of them went down below the firmament (that was) in the midst over the face of the whole earth. And this was the only work (Yah) created on the second day.
  5. And on the third day He commanded the waters to pass from off the face of the whole earth into one place, and the dry land to appear.
  6. And the waters did so as He commanded them, and they retired from off the face of the earth into one place outside of this firmament, and the dry land appeared.
  7. And on that day He created for them all the seas according to their separate gathering-places, and all the rivers, and the gatherings of the waters in the mountains and on all the earth, and all the lakes, and all the dew of the earth, and the seed which is sown, and all sprouting things, and fruit-bearing trees, and trees of the wood, and the Garden of Eden, in Eden and all plants after their kind.
  8. These four great works Yah created on the third day. And on the fourth day He created the sun and the moon and the stars, and set them in the firmament of the heaven, to give light upon all the earth, and to rule over the day and the night, and divide the light from the darkness.
  9. And Yah appointed the sun to be a great sign on the earth for days and for Sabbaths and for months and for feasts and for years and for Sabbaths of years and for Jubilees and for all seasons of the years.
  10. And it divide the light from the darkness [and] for prosperity, that all things may prosper which shoot and grow on the earth.
  11. These three kinds He made on the fourth day. And on the fifth day He created great sea monsters in the depths of the waters, for these were the first things of flesh that were created by His Hands, the fish and everything that moves in the waters, and everything that flies, the birds and all their kind.
  12. And the sun rose above them to prosper (them), and above everything that was on the earth, everything that shoots out of the earth, and all fruit-bearing trees, and all flesh.
  13. These three kinds He created on the fifth day. And on the sixth day He created all the animals of the earth, and all cattle, and everything that moves on the earth.
  14. And after all this He created man, a man and a woman created He them, and gave him dominion over all that is upon the earth, and in the seas, and over everything that flies, and over beasts and over cattle, and over everything that moves on the earth, and over the whole earth, and over all this He gave him dominion.
  15. And these four kinds He created on the sixth day. And there were altogether two and twenty kinds.
  16. And He finished all his work on the sixth day -all that is in the heavens and on the earth, and in the seas and in the abysses, and in the light and in the darkness, and in everything.
  17. And He gave us a great sign, the Sabbath day, that we should work six days, but keep Sabbath on the seventh day from all work.
  18. And all the angels of the presence, and all the angels of sanctification, these two great classes -He has bidden us to keep the Sabbath with Him in heaven and on earth.
  19. And He said unto us: ‘Behold! I will separate unto Myself a People from among all the peoples, and these shall keep the Sabbath day, and I will sanctify them unto Myself as My People, and will bless them; as I have sanctified the Sabbath day and do sanctify (it) unto Myself, even so will I bless them, and they shall be My People and I will be their Almighty.
  20. And I have chosen the seed of Yahgob from amongst all that I have seen, and have written him down as My First-Born Son, and have sanctified him unto Myself for ever and ever; and I will teach them the Sabbath Day, that they may keep Sabbath thereon from all work.’
  21. And thus He created therein a sign in accordance with which they should keep Sabbath with us on the seventh day, to eat and to drink, and to bless Him who has created all things as He has blessed and sanctified unto Himself a peculiar People above all peoples, and that they should keep Sabbath together with us.
  22. And He caused His Commands to ascend as a sweet savor acceptable before Him all the days . . .
  23. There (were) two and twenty heads of mankind from Adam to Yahgob, and two and twenty kinds of work were made until the seventh day; this is blessed and the former also is blessed and this one serves with that one for sanctification and blessing.
  24. And to this (Yahgob and his seed) it was granted that they should always be the blessed and honorable ones of the first testimony and Law, even as He had sanctified and blessed the Sabbath day on the seventh day.
  25. He created heaven and earth and everything that He created in six days, and Yah made the seventh day honorable, for all His works; therefore He Commanded on its behalf that, whoever does any work thereon shall die, and that he who defiles it shall surely die.
  26. Therefore do thou Command the Children of Yahdaim to observe this day that they may keep it and not do thereon any work, and not to defile it, as it is Set-Apart than all other days.
  27. And whoever profanes it shall surely die, and whoever does thereon any work shall surely die eternally, that the children of Yahdaim may observe this day throughout their generations, and not be rooted out of the land; for it is a honorable day and a blessed day.
  28. And every one who observes it and keeps Sabbath thereon from all his work, will be honorable and blessed throughout all days like unto us.
  29. Declare and say to the children of Yahdaim the Law of this day both that they should keep Sabbath thereon, and that they should not forsake it in the error of their hearts; (and) that it is not lawful to do any work thereon which is unseemly, to do thereon their own pleasure, and that they should not prepare thereon anything to be eaten or drunk, and (that it is not lawful) to draw water, or bring in or take out there on through their gates any burden, which they had not prepared for themselves on the sixth day in their dwellings.
  30. And they shall not bring in nor take out from house to house on that day; for that day is more honorable and blessed than any Jubilee day of the Jubilees; on this we kept Sabbath in the heavens before it was made known to any flesh to keep Sabbath thereon on the earth.
  31. And the Creator of all things blessed it, but He did not sanctify all peoples and nations to keep Sabbath thereon, but Yahdaim alone: them alone he permitted to eat and drink and to keep Sabbath thereon on the earth.
  32. And the Creator of all things blessed this day which He had created for blessing and honor above all days.
  33. This Law and testimony was given to the Children of Yahdaim as a Law for ever unto their generations.

  6. And He awaked Adam out of his sleep and on awaking he rose on the sixth day, and He brought her to him, and he knew her, and said unto her: ‘This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called [my] wife; because she was taken from her husband.’
  7. Therefore shall man and wife be one and therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and cleave unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh.
  8. In the first week was Adam created, and the rib -his wife: in the second week He showed her unto him: and for this reason the Commandment was given to keep in their defilement, for a male seven days, and for a female twice seven days.
  9. And after Adam had completed forty days in the land where he had been created, we brought him into the Garden of Eden to till and keep it, but his wife they brought in on the eightieth day, and after this she entered into the Garden of Eden.
  10. And for this reason the Commandment is written on the Heavenly Tablets in regard to her that gives birth: ‘if she bears a male, she shall remain in her uncleanness seven days according to the first week of days, and thirty and three days shall she remain in the blood of her purifying, and she shall not touch any hallowed thing, nor enter into the Sanctuary, until she accomplishes these days which (are enjoined) in the case of a male child.
  11. But in the case of a female child she shall remain in her uncleanness two weeks of days, according to the first two weeks, and sixty-six days in the blood of her purification, and they will be in all eighty days.’
  12. And when she had completed these eighty days we brought her into the Garden of Eden, for it is blessed than all the earth besides and every tree that is planted in it is blessed.
  13. Therefore, there was ordained regarding her who bears a male or a female child the statute of those days that she should touch no hallowed thing, nor enter into the Sanctuary until these days for the male or female child are accomplished.
  14. This is the Law and testimony which was written down for Yahdaim, in order that they should observe (it) all the days.
  15. And in the first week of the first Jubilee, [1-7 A.M.] Adam and his wife were in the Garden of Eden for seven years tilling and keeping it, and we gave him work and we instructed him to do everything that is suitable for tillage.
  16. And he tilled (the garden), and was naked and knew it not, and was not ashamed, and he protected the Garden from the birds and beasts and cattle, and gathered its fruit, and eat, and put aside the residue for himself and for his wife [and put aside that which was being kept].
  17. And after the completion of the seven years, which he had completed there, seven years exactly, [8 A.M.] and in the second month, on the seventeenth day (of the month), the serpent came and approached the woman, and the serpent said to the woman, ‘Has Yah commanded you, saying, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?’
  18. And she said to it, ‘Of all the fruit of the trees of the Garden Yah has said unto us, Eat; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the Garden Yah has said unto us, You shall not eat thereof, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’
  19. And the serpent said unto the woman, ‘You shall not surely die: for Yah does know that on the day you shall eat thereof, your eyes will be opened, and you will be as gods, and you will know good and evil.
  20. And the woman saw the tree that it was agreeable and pleasant to the eye, and that its fruit was good for food, and she took thereof and eat.
  21. And when she had first covered her shame with fig leaves, she gave thereof to Adam and he eat, and his eyes were opened, and he saw that he was naked.
  22. And he took fig leaves and sewed (them) together, and made an apron for himself, and, covered his shame.
  23. And Yah cursed the serpent, and was wroth with it for ever . . .
  24. And He was wroth with the woman, because she harkened to the voice of the serpent, and did eat; and He said unto her: ‘I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your pains: in sorrow you shall bring forth children, and your return shall be unto your husband, and he will rule over you.’
  25. And to Adam also he said, ‘ Because you has listened unto the voice of your wife, and has eaten of the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat thereof, cursed be the ground for your sake: thorns and thistles shall it bring forth to you, and you shall eat your bread in the sweat of your face, till you return to the earth from where you was taken; for earth you are, and unto earth shall you return!’
  26. And He made for them coats of skin, and clothed them, and sent them forth from the Garden of Eden.
  27. And on that day on which Adam went forth from the Garden, he offered as a sweet savor an offering, frankincense, galbanum, and stacte, and spices in the morning with the rising of the sun from the day when he covered his shame.
  28. And on that day was closed the mouth of all beasts, and of cattle, and of birds, and of whatever walks, and of whatever moves, so that they could no longer speak: for they had all spoken one with another with one lip and with one tongue.
  29. And Yah sent out of the Garden of Eden all flesh that was in the Garden of Eden, and all flesh was scattered according to its kinds, and according to its types unto the places which had been created for them.
  30. And to Adam alone did He give (the wherewithal) to cover his shame, of all the beasts and cattle.
  31. On this account, it is prescribed on the Heavenly Tablets as touching all those who know the judgment of the Law that they should cover their shame, and should not uncover themselves as the Gentiles uncover themselves.
  32. And on the new moon of the fourth month, Adam and his wife went forth from the Garden of Eden, and they dwelt in the land of Elda in the land of their creation.
  33. And Adam called the name of his wife Eve.
  34. And they had no son till the first Jubilee, [8 A.M.] and after this he knew her.
  35. Now he tilled the land as he had been instructed in the Garden of Eden.

Cain and Abel and other children of Adam, 1-12. Enos, Kenan, Mahalalel, Jared, 13-15. Enoch and his history, 16-25. Four sacred places, 26. Methuselah, Lamech, Noah, 27, 28. Death of Adam and Cain, 29-32. Shem,Ham, and Japhet,32. (Cf. Gen. iv-v.)
[Chapter 4]
  1. And in the third week in the second jubilee [64-70 A.M.] she gave birth to Cain, and in the fourth [71-77 A.M.] she gave birth to Abel, and in the fifth [78-84 A.M.] she gave birth to her daughter Âwân.
  2. And in the first (year) of the third jubilee [99-105 A.M.], Cain slew Abel because (Yah) accepted the sacrifice of Abel, and did not accept the offering of Cain.
  3. And he slew him in the field: and his blood cried from the ground to heaven, complaining because he had slain him.
  4. And the Yah reproved Cain because of Abel, because he had slain him, and he made him a fugitive on the earth because of the blood of his brother, and he cursed him upon the earth.
  5. And on this account it is written on the heavenly tables, ‘Cursed is ,he who smites his neighbor treacherously, and let all who have seen and heard say, So be it; and the man who has seen and not declared (it), let him be accursed as the other.’
  6. And for this reason we announce when we come before Yah our Almighty all the wickedness which is committed in heaven and on earth, and in light and in darkness, and everywhere.
  7. And Adam and his wife mourned for Abel four weeks of years, [99-127 A.M] and in the fourth year of the fifth week [130 A.M.] they became delighted, and Adam knew his wife again, and she bare him a son, and he called his name Seth; for he said ‘YAH has raised up a second seed unto us on the earth instead of Abel; for Cain slew him.’
  8. And in the sixth week [134-40 A.M.] he begat his daughter Azûrâ.
  9. And Cain took Âwân his sister to be his wife and she bare him Enoch at the close of the fourth jubilee. [190-196 A.M.] And in the first year of the first week of the fifth jubilee, [197 A.M.] houses were built on the earth, and Cain built a city, and called its name after the name of his son Enoch.
  10. And Adam knew Eve his wife and she bare yet nine sons.
  11. And in the fifth week of the fifth jubilee [225-31 A.M.] Seth took Azûrâ his sister to be his wife, and in the fourth (year of the sixth week) [235 A.M.] she bare him Enos.
  12. He began to call on the name of Yah on the earth.
  13. And in the seventh jubilee in the third week [309-15 A.M.] Enos took Nôâm his sister to be his wife, and she bare him a son in the third year of the fifth week, and he called his name Kenan.
  14. And at the close of the eighth jubilee [325, 386-3992 A.M.] Kenan took Mûalêlêth his sister to be his wife, and she bare him a son in the ninth jubilee, in the first week in the third year of this week, [395 A.M] and he called his name Mahalalal.
  15. And in the second week of the tenth jubilee [449-55 A.M.] Mahalalal took unto him to wife Dina, the daughter of Barakial the daughter of his father’s brother, and she bare him a son in the third week in the sixth year, [461 A.M.] and he called his name Jared, for in his days the angels of Yah descended on the earth, those who are named the Watchers, that they should instruct the children of men, and that they should do judgment and uprightness on the earth.
  16. And in the eleventh jubilee [512-18 A.M.] Jared took to himself a wife, and her name was Baraka, the daughter of Râsûjâl, a daughter of his father’s brother, in the fourth week of this jubilee, [522 A.M.] and she bare him a son in the fifth week, in the fourth year of the jubilee, and he called his name Enoch.
  17. And he was the first among men that are born on earth who learnt writing and knowledge and wisdom and who wrote down the signs of heaven according to the order of their months in a book that men might know the seasons of the years according to the order of their separate months.
  18. And he was the first to write a testimony and he testified to the sons of men among the generations of the earth, and recounted the weeks of the jubilees, and made known to them the days of the years, and set in order the months and recounted the Sabbaths of the years as we made (them), known to him.
  19. And what was and what will be he saw in a vision of his sleep, as it will happen to the children of men throughout their generations until the Day of Judgment; he saw and understood everything, and wrote his testimony, and placed the testimony on earth for all the children of men and for their generations.
  20. And in the twelfth jubilee, [582-88] in the seventh week thereof, he took to himself a wife, and her name was Edna, the daughter of Danal, the daughter of his father’s brother, and in the sixth year in this week [587 A.M.] she bare him a son and he called his name Methuselah.
  21. And he was moreover with the angels of Yah these six jubilees of years, and they showed him everything which is on earth and in the heavens, the rule of the sun, and he wrote down everything.
  22. And he testified to the Watchers, who had transgressed with the daughters of men; for these had begun to unite themselves, so as to be defiled, with the daughters of men, and Enoch testified against (them) all.
  23. And he was taken from amongst the children of men, and we conducted him into the Garden of Eden in majesty and honor, and behold there he writes down the condemnation and judgment of the world, and all the wickedness of the children of men.
  24. And on account of it (Yah) brought the waters of the flood upon all the land of Eden; for there he was set as a sign and that he should testify against all the children of men, that he should recount all the deeds of the generations until the day of condemnation.
  25. And he burnt the incense of the sanctuary, (even) sweet spices acceptable before Yah on the Mount.
  26. For Yah has four places on the earth, the Garden of Eden, and the Mount of the East, and this mountain on which you are this day, Mount Sinai, and Mount Sion (which) will be sanctified in the new creation for a sanctification of the earth; through it will the earth be sanctified from all (its) guilt and its uncleanness through- out the generations of the world.
  27. And in the fourteenth jubilee [652 A.M.] Methuselah took unto himself a wife, Edna the daughter of Azrial, the daughter of his father’s brother, in the third week, in the first year of this week, [701-7 A.M.] and he begat a son and called his name Lamech.
  28. And in the fifteenth jubilee in the third week Lamech took to himself a wife, and her name was Betenos the daughter of Baraki’il, the daughter of his father’s brother, and in this week she bare him a son and he called his name Noah, saying, ‘This one will comfort me for my trouble and all my work, and for the ground which Yah has cursed.’
  29. And at the close of the nineteenth jubilee, in the seventh week in the sixth year [930 A.M.] thereof, Adam died, and all his sons buried him in the land of his creation, and he was the first to be buried in the earth.
  30. And he lacked seventy years of one thousand years; for one thousand years are as one day in the testimony of the heavens and therefore was it written concerning the tree of knowledge: ‘On the day that you eat thereof you shall die.’ For this reason he did not complete the years of this day; for he died during it.
  31. At the close of this jubilee Cain was killed after him in the same year; for his house fell upon him and he died in the midst of his house, and he was killed by its stones; for with a stone he had killed Abel, and by a stone was he killed in righteous judgment.
  32. For this reason it was ordained on the heavenly tablets: With the instrument with which a man kills his neighbor with the same shall he be killed; after the manner that he wounded him, in like manner shall they deal with him.’
  33. And in the twenty-fifth [1205 A.M.] jubilee Noah took to himself a wife, and her name was `Emzârâ, the daughter of Râkê’al, the daughter of his father’s brother, in the first year in the fifth week [1207 A.M.]: and in the third year thereof she bare him Shem, in the fifth year thereof [1209 A.M.] she bare him Ham, and in the first year in the sixth week [1212 A.M.] she bare him Japheth.

[Chapter 5]
  1. And it came to pass when the children of men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born unto them, that the angels of Yah saw them on a certain year of this jubilee, that they were beautiful to look upon; and they took themselves wives of all whom they chose, and they bare unto them sons and they were giants.
  2. And lawlessness increased on the earth and all flesh corrupted its way, alike men and cattle and beasts and birds and everything that walks on the earth -all of them corrupted their ways and their orders, and they began to devour each other, and lawlessness increased on the earth and every imagination of the thoughts of all men (was) thus evil continually.
  3. And Yah looked upon the earth, and behold it was corrupt, and all flesh had corrupted its orders, and all that were upon the earth had wrought all manner of evil before His eyes.
  4. And He said that He would destroy man and all flesh upon the face of the earth which He had created.
  5. But Noah found honor before the eyes of Yah.
  6. And against the angels whom He had sent upon the earth, He was exceedingly wroth, and He gave Commandment to root them out of all their dominion, and He bade us to bind them in the depths of the earth, and behold they are bound in the midst of them, and are (kept) separate.
  7. And against their sons went forth a Command from before His face that they should be smitten with the sword, and be removed from under heaven.
  8. And He said ‘My spirit shall not always abide on man; for they also are flesh and their days shall be one hundred and twenty years’.
  9. And He sent His sword into their midst that each should slay his neighbor, and they began to slay each other till they all fell by the sword and were destroyed from the earth.
  10. And their fathers were witnesses (of their destruction), and after this they were bound in the depths of the earth forever, until the day of the great condemnation, when judgment is executed on all those who have corrupted their ways and their works before Yah.
  11. And He destroyed all from their places, and there was not left one of them whom He judged not according to all their wickedness.
  12. And He made for all His works a new and righteous nature, so that they should not transgress in their whole nature forever, but should be all righteous each in his kind always.
  13. And the judgment of all is ordained and written on the heavenly tablets in righteousness -even (the judgment of) all who depart from the path which is ordained for them to walk in; and if they walk not therein, judgment is written down for every creature and for every kind.
  14. And there is nothing in heaven or on earth, or in light or in darkness, or in Sheol or in the depth, or in the place of darkness (which is not judged); and all their judgments are ordained and written and engraved.
  15. In regard to all He will judge, the great according to his greatness, and the small according to his smallness, and each according to his way.
  16. And He is not one who will regard the person (of any), nor is He one who will receive gifts, if He says that He will execute judgment on each: if one gave everything that is on the earth, He will not regard the gifts or the person (of any), nor accept anything at his hands, for He is a righteous judge.
  17. [And of the children of Yisrael it has been written and ordained: If they turn to him in righteousness He will forgive all their transgressions and pardon all their wickedness.
  18. It is written and ordained that He will show mercy to all who turn from all their guilt once each year.]
  19. And as for all those who corrupted their ways and their thoughts before the flood, no man’s person was accepted save that of Noah alone; for his person was accepted in behalf of his sons, whom (Yah) saved from the waters of the flood on his account; for his heart was righteous in all his ways, according as it was commanded regarding him, and he had not departed from nothing that was ordained for him.
  20. And Yah said that He would destroy everything which was upon the earth, both men and cattle, and
  21. Beasts, and fowls of the air, and that which move on the earth. And He Commanded Noah to make him an ark that he might save himself from the waters of the flood.
  22. And Noah made the ark in all respects as He commanded him, in the twenty-seventh jubilee of years, in the fifth week in the fifth year (on the new moon of the first month). [1307 A.M.]
  23. And he entered in the sixth (year) thereof, [1308 A.M.] in the second month, on the new moon of the second month, till the sixteenth; and he entered, and all that we brought to him, into the ark, and Yah closed it from without on the seventeenth evening.
  24. And Yah opened seven flood-gates of heaven,
    And the mouths of the fountains of the great deep, seven mouths in number.
  25. And the flood-gates began to pour down water from the heaven forty days and forty nights,
    And the fountains of the deep also sent up waters, until the whole world was full of water.
  26. And the waters increased upon the earth:
    Fifteen cubits did the waters rise above all the high mountains,
    And the ark was lift up above the earth,
    And it moved upon the face of the waters.
  27. And the water prevailed on the face of the earth five months -one hundred and fifty days.
  28. And the ark went and rested on the top of Lubar, one of the mountains of Ararat.
  29. And (on the new moon) in the fourth month the fountains of the great deep were closed and the flood-gates of heaven were restrained; and on the new moon of the seventh month all the mouths of the abysses of the earth were opened, and the water began to descend into the deep below.
  30. And on the new moon of the tenth month the tops of the mountains were seen, and on the new moon of the first month the earth became visible.
  31. And the waters disappeared from above the earth in the fifth week in the seventh year [1309 A.M.] thereof, and on the seventeenth day in the second month the earth was dry.
  32. And on the twenty-seventh thereof he opened the ark, and sent forth from it beasts, and cattle, and birds, and every moving thing.

noahs ark

Sacrifice of Noah, 1-3 (cf. Gen. vii.20-2). Yah’s covenant with Noah, eating of blood forbidden, 4-10 (cf. Gen. ix. 1-17). Moses bidden to renew this law against the eating of blood, 11-14.

[Chapter 6]
  1. And on the new moon of the third month he went forth from the ark, and built an altar on that mountain.
  2. And he made atonement for the earth, and took a goat and made atonement by its blood for all the guilt of the earth; for everything that had been on it had been destroyed, save those that were in the ark with Noah.
  3. And he placed the fat thereof on the altar, and he took an ox, and a goat, and a sheep, and salt, and a turtle-dove, and the young of a dove, and placed a burnt sacrifice on the altar, and poured thereon an offering mingled with oil, and sprinkled wine and strewed frankincense over everything, and caused a goodly savor to arise, acceptable before Yah.
  4. And Yah smelt the goodly savor, and He made a Covenant with him that there should not be any more a flood to destroy the earth; that all the days of the earth seed-time and harvest should never cease; cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night should not change their order, nor cease forever.
  5. ‘And you, increase you and multiply upon the earth, and become many upon it, and be a blessing upon it. The fear of you and the dread of you I will inspire in everything that is on earth and in the sea.
  6. And behold I have given unto you all beasts, and all winged things, and everything that moves on the earth, and the fish in the waters, and all things for food; as the green herbs, I have given you all things to eat.
  7. But flesh, with the life thereof, with the blood, you shall not eat; for the life of all flesh is in the blood, lest your blood of your lives be required. At the hand of every man, at the hand of every (beast) will I require the blood of man.
  8. Whoso shed man’s blood by man shall his blood be shed, for in the image of Yah made He man.
  9. And you, increase you, and multiply on the earth.’
  10. And Noah and his sons swore that they would not eat any blood that was in any flesh, and he made a Covenant before Yah Almighty forever throughout all the generations of the earth in this month.
  11. On this account He spoke to you that you should make a Covenant with the children of Yahdaim in this month upon the mountain with an oath, and that you should sprinkle blood upon them because of all the words of the Covenant, which Yah made with them forever.
  12. And this testimony is written concerning you that you should observe it continually, so that you should not eat on any day any blood of beasts or birds or cattle during all the days of the earth, and the man who eats the blood of beast or of cattle or of birds during all the days of the earth, he and his seed shall be rooted out of the land.
  13. And do you command the children of Yahdaim to eat no blood, so that their names and their seed may be before Yah our Almighty continually.
  14. And for this law there is no limit of days, for it is forever. They shall observe it throughout their generations, so that they may continue supplicating on your behalf with blood before the altar; every day and at the time of morning and evening they shall seek forgiveness on your behalf perpetually before Yah that they may keep it and not be rooted out.
  15. And He gave to Noah and his sons a sign that there should not again be a flood on the earth.
  16. He set His bow in the cloud for a sign of the eternal Covenant that there should not again be a flood on the earth to destroy it all the days of the earth.
  17. For this reason it is ordained and written on the heavenly tablets, that they should celebrate the feast of weeks in this month once a year, to renew the Covenant every year.
  18. And this whole festival was celebrated in heaven from the day of creation till the days of Noah -twenty-six jubilees and five weeks of years [1309-1659 A.M.]: and Noah and his sons observed it for seven jubilees and one week of years, till the day of Noah’s death, and from the day of Noah’s death his sons did away with (it) until the days of Abraham, and they eat blood.
  19. But Abraham observed it, and Isaac and Yahgob and his children observed it up to your days, and in your days the children of Yahdaim forgot it until you celebrated it anew on this mountain.
  20. And do you command the children of Yahdaim to observe this festival in all their generations for a Commandment unto them: one day in the year in this month they shall celebrate the festival.
  21. For it is the feast of weeks and the feast of first fruits: this feast is twofold and of a double nature: according to what is written and engraved concerning it, celebrate it.
  22. For I have written in the book of the first law, in that which I have written for you, that you should celebrate it in its season, one day in the year, and I explained to you its sacrifices that the children of Yahdaim should remember and should celebrate it throughout their generations in this month, one day in every year.
  23. And on the new moon of the first month, and on the new moon of the fourth month, and on the new moon of the seventh month, and on the new moon of the tenth month are the days of remembrance, and the days of the seasons in the four divisions of the year. These are written and ordained as a testimony for ever.
  24. And Noah ordained them for himself as feasts for the generations forever, so that they have become thereby a memorial unto him.
  25. And on the new moon of the first month he was bidden to make for himself an ark, and on that (day) the earth became dry and he opened (the ark) and saw the earth.
  26. And on the new moon of the fourth month the mouths of the depths of the abyss beneath were closed. And on the new moon of the seventh month all the mouths of the abysses of the earth were opened, and the waters began to descend into them.
  27. And on the new moon of the tenth month the tops of the mountains were seen, and Noah was glad.
  28. And on this account he ordained them for himself as feasts for a memorial for ever, and thus are they ordained.
  29. And they placed them on the heavenly tablets, each had thirteen weeks; from one to another (passed) their memorial, from the first to the second, and from the second to the third, and from the third to the fourth.
  30. And all the days of the Commandment will be two and fifty weeks of days, and (these will make) the entire year complete. Thus it is engraved and ordained on the heavenly tablets.
  31. And there is no neglecting (this commandment) for a single year or from year to year.
  32. And command you the children of Yahdaim that they observe the years according to this reckoning- three hundred and sixty-four days, and (these) will constitute a complete year, and they will not disturb its time from its days and from its feasts; for everything will fall out in them according to their testimony, and they will not leave out any day nor disturb any feasts.
  33. But if they do neglect and do not observe them according to His Commandment, then they will disturb all their seasons and the years will be dislodged from this (order), [and they will disturb the seasons and the years will be dislodged] and they will neglect their ordinances.
  34. And all the children of Yahdaim will forget and will not find the path of the years, and will forget the new moons, and seasons, and Sabbaths and they will go wrong as to all the order of the years.
  35. For I know and from henceforth will I declare it unto you, and it is not of my own devising; for the book (lies) written before me, and on the heavenly tablets the division of days is ordained, lest they forget the feasts of the Covenant and walk according to the feasts of the Gentiles after their error and after their ignorance.
  36. For there will be those who will assuredly make observations of the moon -how (it) disturbs the seasons and comes in from year to year ten days too soon.
  37. For this reason the years will come upon them when they will disturb (the order), and make an abominable (day) the day of testimony, and an unclean day a feast day, and they will confound all the days, with the unclean, and for they will go wrong as to the months and Sabbaths and Feasts and jubilees.
  38. For this reason I command and testify to you that you may testify to them; for after your death your children will disturb (them), so that they will not make the year three hundred and sixty-four days only, and for this reason they will go wrong as to the new moons and seasons and Sabbaths and Festivals, and they will eat all kinds of blood with all kinds of flesh.

[Chapter 7]
  1. And in the seventh week in the first year [1317 A.M.] thereof, in this jubilee, Noah planted vines on the mountain on which the ark had rested, named Lubar, one of the Ararat Mountains, and they produced fruit in the fourth year, [1320 A.M.] and he guarded their fruit, and gathered it in this year in the seventh month.
  2. And he made wine therefrom and put it into a vessel, and kept it until the fifth year, [1321 A.M.] until the first day, on the new moon of the first month.
  3. And he celebrated with delight the day of this feast, and he made a burnt sacrifice unto Yah, one young ox and one ram, and seven sheep, each a year old, and a goat of the goats, that he might make atonement thereby for himself and his sons.
  4. And he prepared the goat first, and placed some of its blood on the flesh that was on the altar which he had made, and all the fat he laid on the altar where he made the burnt sacrifice, and the ox and the ram and the sheep, and he laid all their flesh upon the altar.
  5. And he placed all their offerings mingled with oil upon it, and afterwards he sprinkled wine on the fire which he had previously made on the altar, and he placed incense on the altar and caused a sweet savor to ascend acceptable before Yah his Almighty.
  6. And he delighted and drank of this wine, he and his children with delight.
  7. And it was evening, and he went into his tent, and being drunken he lay down and slept, and was uncovered in his tent as he slept.
  8. And Ham saw Noah his father naked, and went forth and told his two brethren without.
  9. And Shem took his garment and arose, he and Japheth, and they placed the garment on their shoulders and went backward and covered the shame of their father, and their faces were backward.
  10. And Noah awoke from his sleep and knew all that his younger son had done unto him, and he cursed his son and said: ‘Cursed be Canaan; an enslaved servant shall he be unto his brethren.’
  11. And he blessed Shem, and said: ‘Blessed be Yah Almighty of Shem, and Canaan shall be his servant.
  12. Yah shall enlarge Japheth, and Yah shall dwell in the dwelling of Shem, and Canaan shall be his servant.’
  13. And Ham knew that his father had cursed his younger son, and he was displeased that he had cursed his son. and he parted from his father, he and his sons with him, Cush and Mizraim and Put and Canaan.
  14. And he built for himself a city and called its name after the name of his wife Ne’elatama’uk.
  15. And Japheth saw it, and became envious of his brother, and he too built for himself a city, and he called its name after the name of his wife ‘Adataneses.
  16. And Shem dwelt with his father Noah, and he built a city close to his father on the mountain, and he too called its name after the name of his wife Sedeqetelebab.
  17. And behold these three cities are near Mount Lubar; Sedeqetelebab fronting the mountain on its east; and Na’eltama’uk on the south; ‘Adatan’eses towards the west.
  18. And these are the sons of Shem: Elam, and Asshur, and Arpachshad -this (son) was born two years after the flood- and Lud, and Aram.
  19. The sons of Japheth: Gomer and Magog and Madai and Javan, Tubal and Meshech and Tiras: these are the sons of Noah.
  20. And in the twenty-eighth jubilee [1324-1372 A.M.] Noah began to enjoin upon his sons’ sons the Ordinances and Commandments, and all the judgments that he knew, and he exhorted his sons to observe righteousness, and to cover the shame of their flesh, and to bless their Creator, and honor father and mother, and love their neighbor, and guard their souls from fornication and uncleanness and all iniquity.
  21. For owing to these three things came the flood upon the earth, namely, owing to the fornication wherein the Watchers against the law of their ordinances went a whoring after the daughters of men, and took themselves wives of all which they chose: and they made the beginning of uncleanness.
  22. And they begat sons the Naphidim, and they were all unlike, and they devoured one another: and the Giants slew the Naphil, and the Naphil slew the Eljo, and the Eljo mankind, and one man another.
  23. And every one sold himself to work iniquity and to shed much blood, and the earth was filled with iniquity.
  24. And after this they transgressed against the beasts and birds, and all that moves and walks on the earth: and much blood was shed on the earth, and every imagination and desire of men imagined vanity and evil continually.
  25. And Yah destroyed everything from off the face of the earth; because of the wickedness of their deeds, and because of the blood which they had shed in the midst of the earth He destroyed everything.
  26. ‘And we were left, I and you, my sons, and everything that entered with us into the ark, and behold I see your works before me that you do not walk in righteousness: for in the path of destruction you have begun to walk, and you are parting one from another, and are envious one of another, and (so it comes) that you are not in harmony, my sons, each with his brother.
  27. For I see, and behold the demons have begun (their) seductions against you and against your children and now I fear on your behalf, that after my death you will shed the blood of men upon the earth, and that you, too, will be destroyed from the face of the earth.
  28. For whoso shed man’s blood, and whoso eat the blood of any flesh, shall all be destroyed from the earth.
  29. And there shall not be left any man that eat blood, or that shed the blood of man on the earth, Nor shall there be left to him any seed or descendants living under heaven; For into Sheol shall they go, And into the place of condemnation shall they descend, And into the darkness of the deep shall they all be removed by a violent death.
  30. There shall be no blood seen upon you of all the blood there shall be all the days in which you have killed any beasts or cattle or whatever flies upon the earth, and work you a good work to your souls by covering that which has been shed on the face of the earth.
  31. And you shall not be like him who eats with blood, but guard yourselves that none may eat blood before you: cover the blood, for thus have I been commanded to testify to you and your children, together with all flesh.
  32. And suffer not the soul to be eaten with the flesh, that your blood, which is your life, may not be required at the hand of any flesh that sheds (it) on the earth.
  33. For the earth will not be clean from the blood which has been shed upon it; for (only) through the blood of him that shed it will the earth be purified throughout all its generations.
  34. And now, my children, harken: work judgment and righteousness that you maybe planted in righteousness over the face of the whole earth, and your honor lifted up before my Yah, who saved me from the waters of the flood.
  35. And behold, you will go and build for yourselves cities, and plant in them all the plants that are upon the earth, and moreover all fruit-bearing trees.
  36. For three years the fruit of everything that is eaten will not be gathered: and in the fourth year its fruit will be accounted blessed [and they will offer the first-fruits], acceptable before the Most High Yah, who created heaven and earth and all things. Let them offer in abundance the first of the wine and oil (as) first-fruits on the altar of Yah, who receives it, and what is left let the servants of the house of Yah eat before the altar which receives (it).
  37. And in the fifth year make you the release so that you release it in righteousness and uprightness, and you shall be righteous, and all that you plant shall prosper.
  38. For thus did Enoch, the father of your father command Methuselah, his son, and Methuselah his son Lamech, and Lamech commanded me all the things which his fathers commanded him.
  39. And I also will give you commandment, my sons, as Enoch commanded his son in the first jubilees: whilst still living, the seventh in his generation, he commanded and testified to his son and to his son’s sons until the day of his death.

[Chapter 8]
  1. In the twenty-ninth jubilee, in the first week, [1373 A.M.] in the beginning thereof Arpachshad took to himself a wife and her name was Rasu’eja, the daughter of Susan, the daughter of Elam, and she bare him a son in the third year in this week, [1375 A.M.] and he called his name Kainam.
  2. And the son grew, and his father taught him writing, and he went to seek for himself a place where he might seize for himself a city.
  3. And he found a writing which former (generations) had carved on the rock, and he read what was thereon, and he transcribed it and transgressed owing to it; for it contained the teaching of the Watchers in accordance with which they used to observe the omens of the sun and moon and stars in all the signs of heaven.
  4. And he wrote it down and said nothing regarding it; for he was afraid to speak to Noah about it lest he should be angry with him on account of it.
  5. And in the thirtieth jubilee, [1429 A.M.] in the second week, in the first year thereof, he took to himself a wife, and her name was Melka, the daughter of Madai, the son of Japheth, and in the fourth year [1432 A.M.] he begat a son, and called his name Shelah; for he said: ‘Truly I have been sent.’
  6. [And in the fourth year he was born], and Shelah grew up and took to himself a wife, and her name was Mu’ak, the daughter of Kesed, his father’s brother, in the one and thirtieth jubilee, in the fifth week, in the first year [1499 A.M.] thereof.
  7. And she bare him a son in the fifth year [1503 A.M.] thereof, and he called his name Eber: and he took unto himself a wife, and her name was ‘Azûrâd, the daughter of Nebrod, in the thirty-second jubilee, in the seventh week, in the third year thereof. [1564 A.M.]
  8. And in the sixth year [1567 A.M.] thereof, she bare him son, and he called his name Peleg; for in the days when he was born the children of Noah began to divide the earth amongst themselves: for this reason he called his name Peleg.
  9. And they divided (it) secretly amongst themselves, and told it to Noah.
  10. And it came to pass in the beginning of the thirty-third jubilee [1569 A.M.] that they divided the earth into three parts, for Shem and Ham and Japheth, according to the inheritance of each, in the first year in the first week, when one of us who had been sent, was with them.
  11. And he called his sons, and they drew nigh to him, they and their children, and he divided the earth into the lots, which his three sons were to take in possession, and they reached forth their hands, and took the writing out of the bosom of Noah, their father.
  12. And there came forth on the writing as Shem’s lot the middle of the earth which he should take as an inheritance for himself and for his sons for the generations of eternity, from the middle of the mountain range of Rafa, from the mouth of the water from the river Tina, and his portion goes towards the west through the midst of this river, and it extends till it reaches the water of the abysses, out of which this river goes forth and pours its waters into the sea Me’at, and this river flows into the great sea. And all that is towards the north is Japheth’s, and all that is towards the south belongs to Shem.
  13. And it extends till it reaches Karaso: this is in the bosom of the tongue which looks towards the south.
  14. And his portion extends along the great sea, and it extends in a straight line till it reaches the west of the tongue which looks towards the south: for this sea is named the tongue of the Egyptian Sea.
  15. And it turns from here towards the south towards the mouth of the great sea on the shore of (its) waters, and it extends to the west to ‘Afra, and it extends till it reaches the waters of the river Gihon, and to the south of the waters of Gihon, to the banks of this river.
  16. And it extends towards the east, till it reaches the Garden of Eden, to the south thereof, [to the south] and from the east of the whole land of Eden and of the whole east, it turns to the east and proceeds till it reaches the east of the mountain named Rafa, and it descends to the bank of the mouth of the river Tina.
  17. This portion came forth by lot for Shem and his sons that they should possess it forever unto his generations for evermore.
  18. And Noah delighted that this portion came forth for Shem and for his sons, and he remembered all that he had spoken with his mouth in prophecy; for he had said: ‘Blessed be Yah Almighty of Shem And may Yah dwell in the dwelling of Shem.’
  19. And he knew that the Garden of Eden is the blessed, and the dwelling of Yah, and Mount Sinai the center of the desert, and Mount Sion -the center of the navel of the earth: these three were created as blessed places facing each other.
  20. And he blessed Yah Almighty, who had put the word of Yah into his mouth, and Yah for evermore.
  21. And he knew that a blessed portion and a blessing had come to Shem and his sons unto the generations for ever -the whole land of Eden and the whole land of the Red Sea, and the whole land of the east and India, and on the Red Sea and the mountains thereof, and all the land of Bashan, and all the land of Lebanon and the islands of Kaftur, and all the mountains of Sanir and ‘Amana, and the mountains of Asshur in the north, and all the land of Elam, Asshur, and Babel, and Susan and Ma’edai, and all the mountains of Ararat, and all the region beyond the sea, which is beyond the mountains of Asshur towards the north, a blessed and spacious land, and all that is in it is very good.
  22. And for Ham came forth the second portion, beyond the Gihon towards the south to the right of the Garden, and it extends towards the south and it extends to all the mountains of fire, and it extends towards the west to the sea of ‘Atel and it extends towards the west till it reaches the sea of Ma’uk -that (sea) into which everything which is not destroyed descends.
  23. And it goes forth towards the north to the limits of Gadir, and it goes forth to the coast of the waters of the sea to the waters of the great sea till it draws near to the river Gihon, and goes along the river Gihon till it reaches the right of the Garden of Eden.
  24. And this is the land which came forth for Ham as the portion which he was to occupy forever for himself and his sons unto their generations forever.
  25. And for Japheth came forth the third portion beyond the river Tina to the north of the outflow of its waters, and it extends north- easterly to the whole region of Gog, and to all the country east thereof.
  26. And it extends northerly to the north, and it extends to the mountains of Qelt towards the north, and towards the sea of Ma’uk, and it goes forth to the east of Gadir as far as the region of the waters of the sea.
  27. And it extends until it approaches the west of Fara and it returns towards ‘Aferag, and it extends easterly to the waters of the sea of Me’at.
  28. And it extends to the region of the river Tina in a north-easterly direction until it approaches the boundary of its waters towards the mountain Rafa, and it turns round towards the north.
  29. This is the land which came forth for Japheth and his sons as the portion of his inheritance which he should possess for himself and his sons, for their generations forever; five great islands, and a great land in the north.
  30. But it is cold, and the land of Ham is hot, and the land of Shem is neither hot nor cold, but it is of blended cold and heat.

[Chapter 9]
  1. And Ham divided amongst his sons, and the first portion came forth for Cush towards the east, and to the west of him for Mizrayim, and to the west of him for Put, and to the west of him [and to the west thereof] on the sea for Canaan.
  2. And Shem also divided amongst his sons. And the first portion came forth for Ham and his sons, to the east of the river Tigris till it approaches the east, the whole land of India, and on the Red Sea on its coast, and the waters of Dedan, and all the mountains of Mebri and Ela, and all the land of Susan and all that is on the side of Pharnak to the Red Sea and the river Tina.
  3. And for Asshur came forth the second Portion, all the land of Asshur and Nineveh and Shinar and to the border of India, and it ascends and skirts the river.
  4. And for Arpachshad came forth the third portion, all the land of the region of the Chaldees to the east of the Euphrates, bordering on the Red Sea, and all the waters of the desert close to the tongue of the sea which looks towards Egypt, all the land of Lebanon and Sanir and ‘Amana to the border of the Euphrates.
  5. And for Aram there came forth the fourth portion, all the land of Mesopotamia between the Tigris and the Euphrates to the north of the Chaldees to the border of the mountains of Asshur and the land of ‘Arara.
  6. And there came forth for Lud the fifth portion, the mountains of Asshur and all appertaining to them till it reaches the Great Sea, and till it reaches the east of Asshur his brother.
  7. And Japheth also divided the land of his inheritance amongst his sons.
  8. And the first portion came forth for Gomer to the east from the north side to the river Tina; and in the north there came forth for Magog all the inner portions of the north until it reaches to the sea of Me’at.
  9. And for Madai came forth as his portion that he should possess from the west of his two brothers to the islands, and to the coasts of the islands.
  10. And for Javan came forth the fourth portion every island and the islands which are towards the border of Lud.
  11. And for Tubal there came forth the fifth portion in the midst of the tongue which approaches towards the border of the portion of Lud to the second tongue, to the region beyond the second tongue unto the third tongue.
  12. And for Meshech came forth the sixth portion, all the region beyond the third tongue till it approaches the east of Gadir.
  13. And for Tiras there came forth the seventh portion, four great islands in the midst of the sea, which reach to the portion of Ham [and the islands of Kamaturi came out by lot for the sons of Arpachshad as his inheritance].
  14. And thus the sons of Noah divided unto their sons in the presence of Noah their father, and he bound them all by an oath, imprecating a curse on every one that sought to seize the portion which had not fallen (to him) by his lot.
  15. And they all said, ‘So be it; so be it ‘ for themselves and their sons forever throughout their generations till the day of judgment, on which Yah Almighty shall judge them with a sword and with fire for all the unclean wickedness of their errors, wherewith they have filled the earth with transgression and uncleanness and fornication and wickedness.

[Chapter 10]
  1. And in the third week of this jubilee the unclean demons began to lead astray the children of the sons of Noah, and to make to err and destroy them.
  2. And the sons of Noah came to Noah their father, and they told him concerning the demons which were leading astray and blinding and slaying his sons’ sons.
  3. And he prayed before Yah his Almighty, and said:
‘Yah of the spirits of all flesh, who has shown mercy unto me
And hast saved me and my sons from the waters of the flood,
And has not caused me to perish as You did the sons of perdition;
For Your honor has been great towards me,
And great has been Your mercy to my soul;
Let Your Honor be lift up upon my sons,
And let not wicked spirits rule over them
Lest they should destroy them from the earth.
  1. But do You bless me and my sons, that we may increase and Multiply and replenish the earth.
  2. And You know how Your Watchers, the fathers of these spirits, acted in my day: and as for these spirits which are living, imprison them and hold them fast in the place of condemnation, and let them not bring destruction on the sons of your servant, my Yah; for these are malignant, and created in order to destroy.
  3. And let them not rule over the spirits of the living; for You alone can exercise dominion over them. And let them not have power over the sons of the righteous from henceforth and for evermore.’
  4. And Yah our Almighty bade us to bind all.
  5. And the chief of the spirits, Mastêmâ, came and said: ‘Lord, Creator, let some of them remain before me, and let them harken to my voice, and do all that I shall say unto them; for if some of them are not left to me, I shall not be able to execute the power of my will on the sons of men; for these are for corruption and leading astray before my judgment, for great is the wickedness of the sons of men.’
  6. And He said: Let the tenth part of them remain before him, and let nine parts descend into the place of condemnation.’
  7. And one of us He commanded that we should teach Noah all their medicines; for He knew that they would not walk in uprightness, nor strive in righteousness.
  8. And we did according to all His words: all the malignant evil ones we bound in the place of condemnation and a tenth part of them we left that they might be subject before Satan on the earth.
  9. And we explained to Noah all the medicines of their diseases, together with their seductions, how he might heal them with herbs of the earth.
  10. And Noah wrote down all things in a book as we instructed him concerning every kind of medicine. Thus the evil spirits were precluded from (hurting) the sons of Noah.
  11. And he gave all that he had written to Shem, his eldest son; for he loved him exceedingly above all his sons.
  12. And Noah slept with his fathers, and was buried on Mount Lubar in the land of Ararat.
  13. Nine hundred and fifty years he completed in his life, nineteen jubilees and two weeks and five years. [1659 A.M.]
  14. And in his life on earth he excelled the children of men save Enoch because of the righteousness, wherein he was perfect. For Enoch’s office was ordained for a testimony to the generations of the world, so that he should recount all the deeds of generation unto generation, till the Day of Judgment.
  15. And in the three and thirtieth jubilee, in the first year in the second week, Peleg took to himself a wife, whose name was Lomna the daughter of Sina’ar, and she bare him a son in the fourth year of this week, and he called his name Reu; for he said: ‘Behold the children of men have become evil through the wicked purpose of building for themselves a city and a tower in the land of Shinar.’
  16. For they departed from the land of Ararat eastward to Shinar; for in his days they built the city and the tower, saying, ‘Go to, and let us ascend thereby into heaven.’
  17. And they began to build, and in the fourth week they made brick with fire, and the bricks served them for stone, and the clay with which they cemented them together was asphalt which comes out of the sea, and out of the fountains of water in the land of Shinar.
  18. And they built it: forty and three years [1645-1688 A.M.] were they building it; its breadth was 203 bricks, and the height (of a brick) was the third of one; its height amounted to 5433 cubits and 2 palms, and (the extent of one wall was) thirteen stades (and of the other thirty stades).
  19. And Yah our Almighty said unto us: Behold, they are one people, and (this) they begin to do, and now nothing will be withholding from them. Go to, let us go down and confound their language that they may not understand one another’s speech, and they may be dispersed into cities and nations, and one purpose will no longer abide with them till the Day of Judgment.’
  20. And Yah descended, and we descended with him to see the city and the tower which the children of men had built.
  21. And he confounded their language, and they no longer understood one another’s speech, and they ceased then to build the city and the tower.
  22. For this reason the whole land of Shinar is called Babel, because Yah did there confound all the language of the children of men, and from thence they were dispersed into their cities, each according to his language and his nation.
  23. And Yah sent a mighty wind against the tower and overthrew it upon the earth, and behold it was between Asshur and Babylon in the land of Shinar, and they called its name ‘Overthrow’.
  24. In the fourth week in the first year [1688 A.M.] in the beginning thereof in the four and thirtieth jubilee, were they dispersed from the land of Shinar.
  25. And Ham and his sons went into the land which he was to occupy, which he acquired as his portion in the land of the south.
  26. And Canaan saw the land of Lebanon to the river of Egypt, that it was very good, and he went not into the land of his inheritance to the west (that is to) the sea, and he dwelt in the land of Lebanon, eastward and westward from the border of Jordan and from the border of the sea.
  27. And Ham, his father, and Cush and Mizraim his brothers said unto him: ‘You has settled in a land which is not yours, and which did not fall to us by lot: do not do so; for if you dose do so, you and your sons will fall in the land and (be) accursed through sedition; for by sedition you have settled, and by sedition will your children fall, and you shall be rooted out for ever.
  28. Dwell not in the dwelling of Shem; for to Shem and to his sons did it come by their lot.
  29. Cursed are you, and cursed shall you be beyond all the sons of Noah, by the curse by which we bound ourselves by an oath in the presence of the judge, and in the presence of Noah our father.’
  30. But he did not listen unto them, and dwelt in the land of Lebanon from Hamath to the entering of Egypt, he and his sons until this day.
  31. And for this reason that land is named Canaan.
  32. And Japheth and his sons went towards the sea and dwelt in the land of their portion, and Madai saw the land of the sea and it did not please him, and he begged a (portion) from Ham and Asshur and Arpachshad, his wife’s brother, and he dwelt in the land of Media, near to his wife’s brother until this day.
  33. And he called his dwelling-place, and the dwelling-place of his sons, Media, after the name of their father Madai.

[Chapter 11]
  1. And in the thirty-fifth jubilee, in the third week, in the first year [1681 A.M.] thereof, Reu took to himself a wife, and her name was ‘Ôrâ, the daughter of ‘Ûr, the son of Kesed, and she bare him a son, and he called his name Sêrôh, in the seventh year of this week in this jubilee. [1687 A.M.]
  2. And the sons of Noah began to war on each other, to take captive and to slay each other, and to shed the blood of men on the earth, and to eat blood, and to build strong cities, and walls, and towers, and individuals (began) to exalt themselves above the nation, and to found the beginnings of kingdoms, and to go to war people against people, and nation against nation, and city against city, and all (began) to do evil, and to acquire arms, and to teach their sons war, and they began to capture cities, and to sell male and female slaves.
  3. And ‘Ûr, the son of Kesed, built the city of ‘Ara of the Chaldees, and called its name after his own name and the name of his father. And they made for themselves molten images, and they worshipped each the idol, the molten image which they had made for themselves, and they began to make graven images and unclean simulacra, and malignant spirits assisted and seduced (them) into committing transgression and uncleanness.
  4. And the prince Mastêmâ exerted himself to do all this, and he sent forth other spirits, those which were put under his hand, to do all manner of wrong and wickedness, and all manner of transgression, to corrupt and destroy, and to shed blood upon the earth.
  5. For this reason he called the name of Sêrôh, Serug, for every one turned to do all manner of wickedness and transgression.
  6. And he grew up, and dwelt in Ur of the Chaldees, near to the father of his wife’s mother, and he worshipped idols, and he took to himself a wife in the thirty-sixth jubilee, in the fifth week, in the first year thereof, [1744 A.M.] and her name was Melka, the daughter of Kaber, the daughter of his father’s brother.
  7. And she bare him Nahor, in the first year of this week, and he grew and dwelt in Ur of the Chaldees, and his father taught him the researches of the Chaldees to observe and augur, according to the signs of heaven.
  8. And in the thirty-seventh jubilee in the sixth week, in the first year thereof, [1800 A.M.] he took to himself a wife, and her name was ‘Ijaska, the daughter of Nestag of the Chaldees.
  9. And she bare him Terah in the seventh year of this week. [1806 A.M.]
  10. And the prince Mastêmâ sent ravens and birds to devour the seed which was sown in the land, in order to destroy the land, and rob the children of men of their labors. Before they could plough in the seed, the ravens picked (it) from the surface of the ground.
  11. And for this reason he called his name Terah because the ravens and the birds reduced them to destitution and devoured their seed.
  12. And the years began to be barren, owing to the birds, and they devoured all the fruit of the trees from the trees: it was only with great effort that they could save a little of all the fruit of the earth in their days.
  13. And in this thirty-ninth jubilee, in the second week in the first year, [1870 A.M.] Terah took to himself a wife, and her name was ‘Edna, the daughter of ‘Abram, the daughter of his father’s sister. And in the seventh year of this week [1876 A.M.] she bare him a son, and he called his name Abram, by the name of the father of his mother;
  14. for he had died before his daughter had conceived a son.
  15. And the child began to understand the errors of the earth that all went astray after graven images and after uncleanness, and his father taught him writing, and he was two weeks of years old, [1890 A.M.] and he separated himself from his father, that he might not worship idols with him.
  16. And he began to pray to the Creator of all things that He might save him from the errors of the children of men, and that his portion should not fall into error after uncleanness and vileness.
  17. And the seed time came for the sowing of seed upon the land, and they all went forth together to protect their seed against the ravens, and Abram went forth with those that went, and the child was a lad of fourteen years.
  18. And a cloud of ravens came to devour the seed, and Abram ran to meet them before they settled on the ground, and cried to them before they settled on the ground to devour the seed, and said, ‘ Descend not: return to the place where you came,’ and they proceeded to turn back.
  19. And he caused the clouds of ravens to turn back that day seventy times, and of all the ravens throughout all the land where Abram was there settled there not so much as one.
  20. And all who were with him throughout all the land saw him cry out, and all the ravens turn back, and his name became great in all the land of the Chaldees.
  21. And there came to him this year all those that wished to sow, and he went with them until the time of sowing ceased: and they sowed their land, and that year they brought enough grain home and eat and were satisfied.
  22. And in the first year of the fifth week [1891 A.M.] Abram taught those who made implements for oxen, the artificers in wood, and they made a vessel above the ground, facing the frame of the plough, in order to put the seed thereon, and the seed fell down therefrom upon the share of the plough, and was hidden in the earth, and they no longer feared the ravens.
  23. And after this manner they made (vessels) above the ground on all the frames of the ploughs, and they sowed and tilled all the land, according as Abram commanded them, and they no longer feared the birds.

                           Wicked Evil Idol Abomination!

Abram seeks to run Terah from idolatry, 1-8. Marries Sarai, 9. Haran and Nachor, 9-11. Abram burns the idols: death of Haran, 12-14 (cf. Gen. xi.28). Terah and his family go to Haran, 15. Abram observes the stars and prays, 16-21. Is bidden to go to Canaan and blessed, 22-4. Power of speaking Hebrew given to him, 25-7. Leaves Haran for Canaan, 28-31. (Cf. Gen. xi.31-xii.3.)
[Chapter 12]
  1. And it came to pass in the sixth week, in the seventh year thereof, [1904 A.M.] that Abram said to Terah his father, saying, ‘Father!’
  2. And he said, ‘Behold, here am I, my son.’ And he said,
‘What help and profit have we from those idols which you dose worship,
And before which you dose bow yourself?
  1. For there is no spirit in them,
    For they are dumb forms, and a misleading of the heart.
    Worship them not:
  2. Worship Yah of heaven,
    Who causes the rain and the dew to descend on the earth
    And does everything upon the earth,
And has created everything by His Word,
And all life is from before His Face.
  1. Why do you worship things that have no spirit in them?
    For they are the work of (men’s) hands,
And on your shoulders do you bear them,
And you have no help from them,
But they are a great cause of shame to those who make them,
And a misleading of the heart to those who worship them:
Worship them not.’
  1. And his father said unto him, I also know it, my son, but what shall I do with a people who have made me to serve before them?
  2. And if I tell them the truth, they will slay me; for their soul cleaves to them to worship them and honor them.
  3. Keep silent, my son, lest they slay you.’ And these words he spoke to his two brothers, and they were angry with him and he kept silent.
  4. And in the fortieth jubilee, in the second week, in the seventh year thereof, [1925 A.M.] Abram took to himself a wife, and her name was Sarai, the daughter of his father, and she became his wife.
  5. And Haran, his brother, took to himself a wife in the third year of the third week, [1928 A.M.] and she bare him a son in the seventh year of this week, [1932 A.M.] and he called his name Lot.
  6. And Nahor, his brother, took to himself a wife.
  7. And in the sixtieth year of the life of Abram, that is, in the fourth week, in the fourth year thereof, [1936 A.M.] Abram arose by night, and burned the house of the idols, and he burned all that was in the house and no man knew it.
  8. And they arose in the night and sought to save their gods from the midst of the fire.
  9. And Haran hasted to save them, but the fire flamed over him, and he was burnt in the fire, and he died in Ur of the Chaldees before Terah his father, and they buried him in Ur of the Chaldees.
  10. And Terah went forth from Ur of the Chaldees, he and his sons, to go into the land of Lebanon and into the land of Canaan, and he dwelt in the land of Haran, and Abram dwelt with Terah his father in Haran two weeks of years.
  11. And in the sixth week, in the fifth year thereof, [1951 A.M.] Abram sat up throughout the night on the new moon of the seventh month to observe the stars from the evening to the morning, in order to see what would be the character of the year with regard to the rains, and he was alone as he sat and observed.
  12. And a word came into his heart and he said: All the signs of the stars, and the signs of the moon and of the sun are all in the hand of Yah. Why do I search (them) out?
  13. If He desires, He causes it to rain, morning and evening;
    And if He desires, He withholds it,
    And all things are in his hand.’
  14. And he prayed that night and said,
    ‘My Yah, Yah Most High, You alone are my Almighty,
    And You and Your dominion have I chosen.
    And You has created all things,
    And all things that are the work of Your Hands.
  15. Deliver me from the hands of evil spirits who have dominion over the thoughts of men’s hearts.
    And let them not lead me astray from You, my Yah.
And stablish You me and my seed forever
That we go not astray from henceforth and for evermore.’
  1. And he said, ‘Shall I return unto Ur of the Chaldees who seek my face that I may return to them, am I to remain here in this place? The right path before You prosper it in the hands of Your servant that he may fulfil (it) and that I may not walk in the deceitfulness of my heart, O’ my Yah.’
  2. And he made an end of speaking and praying, and behold the Word of Yah was sent to him through me, saying: ‘Get you up from your country, and from your kindred and from the house of your father unto a land which I will show you, and I shall make you a great and numerous nation.
  3. And I will bless you
    And I will make your name great,
    And you shall be blessed in the earth,
    And in you shall all families of the earth be blessed,
    And I will bless them that bless you,
    And curse them that curse you.
  4. And I will be a Almighty to you and your son, and to your son’s son, and to all your seed: fear not, from henceforth and unto all generations of the earth I am your Almighty.’
  5. And the Almighty Yah said: ‘Open his mouth and his ears, that he may hear and speak with his mouth, with the language which has been revealed’; for it had ceased from the mouths of all the children of men from the day of the overthrow (of Babel).
  6. And I opened his mouth, and his ears and his lips, and I began to speak with him in Hebrew in the tongue of the creation.
  7. And he took the books of his fathers, and these were written in Hebrew, and he transcribed them, and he began from henceforth to study them, and I made known to him that which he could not (understand), and he studied them during the six rainy months.
  8. And it came to pass in the seventh year of the sixth week [1953 A.M.] that he spoke to his father and informed him, that he would leave Haran to go into the land of Canaan to see it and return to him.
  9. And Terah his father said unto him; Go in peace:
May the eternal Yah make your path straight.
And Yah [(be) with you, and] protect you from all evil,
And grant unto you honor, mercy and favor before those who see you,
And may none of the children of men have power over you to harm you;
Go in peace.
  1. And if you sees a land pleasant to your eyes to dwell in, then arise and take me to you and take Lot with you, the son of Haran your brother as your own son: Yah be with you.
  2. And Nahor your brother leave with me till you return in peace, and we go with you all together.’

[Chapter 13]
  1. And Abram journeyed from Haran, and he took Sarai, his wife, and Lot, his brother Haran’s son, to the land of Canaan, and he came into Asshur, and proceeded to Shechem, and dwelt near a lofty oak.
  2. And he saw, and, behold, the land was very pleasant from the entering of Hamath to the lofty oak.
  3. And Yah said to him: ‘To you and to your seed will I give this land.’
  4. And he built an altar there, and he offered thereon a burnt sacrifice to Yah, who had appeared to him.
  5. And he removed from thence unto the mountain . . . Bethel on the west and Ai on the east, and pitched his tent there.
  6. And he saw and behold, the land was very wide and good, and everything grew thereon -vines and figs and pomegranates, oaks and ilexes, and terebinths and oil trees, and cedars and cypresses and date trees, and all trees of the field, and there was water on the mountains.
  7. And he blessed Yah who had led him out of Ur of the Chaldees, and had brought him to this land.
  8. And it came to pass in the first year, in the seventh week, on the new moon of the first month, 1954 A.M.] that he built an altar on this mountain, and called on the name of Yah: ‘You, the eternal Yah, are my Yah.’
  9. And he offered on the altar a burnt sacrifice unto Yah that He should be with him and not forsake him all the days of his life.
  10. And he removed from there and went towards the south, and he came to Hebron and Hebron was built at that time, and he dwelt there two years, and he went (there) into the land of the south, to Bealoth, and there was a famine in the land.
  11. And Abram went into Egypt in the third year of the week, and he dwelt in Egypt five years before his wife was torn away from him.
  12. Now Tanais in Egypt was at that time built- seven years after Hebron.
  13. And it came to pass when Pharaoh seized Sarai, the wife of Abram that Yah plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram’s wife.
  14. And Abram was very honorable by reason of possessions in sheep, and cattle, and asses, and horses, and camels, and menservants, and maidservants, and in silver and gold exceedingly. And Lot also his brother’s son, was wealthy.
  15. And Pharaoh gave back Sarai, the wife of Abram, and he sent him out of the land of Egypt, and he journeyed to the place where he had pitched his tent at the beginning, to the place of the altar, with Ai on the east, and Bethel on the west, and he blessed Yah his Almighty who had brought him back in peace.
  16. And it came to pass in the forty-first jubilee in the third year of the first week, [1963 A.M.] that he returned to this place and offered thereon a burnt sacrifice, and called on the Name of Yah, and said: ‘You, the Most High Yah, are my Yah for ever and ever.’
  17. And in the fourth year of this week [1964 A.M.] Lot parted from him, and Lot dwelt in Sodom, and the men of Sodom were wicked exceedingly.
  18. And it grieved him in his heart that his brother’s son had parted from him; for he had no children.
  19. In that year when Lot was taken captive, Yah said unto Abram, after that Lot had parted from him, in the fourth year of this week: ‘Lift up your eyes from the place where you are dwelling, northward and southward, and westward and eastward.
  20. For all the land which you sees I will give to you and to your seed forever, and I will make your seed as the sand of the sea: though a man may number the dust of the earth, yet your seed shall not be numbered.
  21. Arise, walk (through the land) in the length of it and the breadth of it, and see it all; for to your seed will I give it.’ And Abram went to Hebron, and dwelt there.
  22. And in this year came Chedorlaomer, king of Elam, and Amraphel, king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Sellasar, and Tergal, king of nations, and slew the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Sodom fled, and many fell through wounds in the vale of Siddim, by the Salt Sea.
  23. And they took captive Sodom and Adam and Zeboim, and they took captive Lot also, the son of Abram’s brother, and all his possessions, and they went to Dan.
  24. And one who had escaped came and told Abram that his brother’s son had been taken captive and (Abram) armed his household servants . . .
  25. . . . . for Abram, and for his seed, a tenth of the first fruits to Yah, and Yah ordained it as an ordinance forever that they should give it to the priests who served before Him, that they should possess it forever.
  26. And to this Law there is no limit of days; for He has ordained it for the generations forever that they should give to Yah the tenth of everything, of the seed and of the wine and of the oil and of the cattle and of the sheep.
  27. And He gave (it) unto His priests to eat and to drink with delight before Him.
  28. And the king of Sodom came to him and bowed himself before him, and said: ‘Our Lord Abram, give unto us the souls which you has rescued, but let the plunder be yours.’
  29. And Abram said unto him: ‘I lift up my hands to the Most High Yah, that from a thread to a shoe-latchet I shall not take anything that is yours lest you should say, I have made Abram rich; save only what the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men who went with me -Aner, Eschol, and Mamre. These shall take their portion.’

[Chapter 14]
  1. After these things, in the fourth year of this week, on the new moon of the third month, the word of Yah came to Abram in a dream, saying: ‘Fear not, Abram; I am your defender, and your reward will be exceeding great.’
  2. And he said: ‘Yah, Yah, what will You give me, seeing I go hence childless, and the son of Maseq, the son of my handmaid, is the Dammasek Eliezer: he will be my heir, and to me You has given no seed.’
  3. And He said unto him: ‘This (man) will not be your heir, but one that will come out of your own bowels; he will be your heir.’
  4. And He brought him forth abroad, and said unto him: ‘Look toward heaven and number the stars if you are able to number them.’
  5. And he looked toward heaven, and beheld the stars. And He said unto him: ‘So shall your seed be.’
  6. And he believed in Yah, and it was counted to him for righteousness.
  7. And He said unto him: ‘I am Yah that brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give you the land of the Canaanites to possess it forever; and I will be Almighty unto you and to your seed after you.’
  8. And he said: ‘Yah, Yah, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit (it)?’
  9. And He said unto him: ‘Take Me an heifer of three years, and a goat of three years, and a sheep of three years, and a turtle-dove, and a pigeon.’
  10. And he took all these in the middle of the month and he dwelt at the oak of Mamre, which is near Hebron.
  11. And he built there an altar, and sacrificed all these; and he poured their blood upon the altar, and divided them in the midst, and laid them over against each other; but the birds divided he not.
  12. And birds came down upon the pieces, and Abram drove them away, and did not suffer the birds to touch them.
  13. And it came to pass, when the sun had set, that an ecstasy fell upon Abram, and lo ! an horror of great darkness fell upon him, and it was said unto Abram: ‘Know of a surety that your seed shall be a stranger in a land (that is) not theirs, and they shall bring them into bondage, and afflict them four hundred years.
  14. And the nation also to whom they will be in bondage will I judge, and after that they shall come forth from there with much substance.
  15. And you shall go to your fathers in peace, and be buried in a good old age.
  16. But in the fourth generation they shall return hither; for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.’
  17. And he awoke from his sleep, and he arose, and the sun had set; and there was a flame, and behold! a furnace was smoking, and a flame of fire passed between the pieces.
  18. And on that day Yah made a Covenant with Abram, saying: ‘To your seed will I give this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates, the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites, the Perizzites, and the Rephaim, the Phakorites, and the Hivites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
  19. And the day passed, and Abram offered the pieces, and the birds, and their fruit offerings, and their drink offerings, and the fire devoured them.
  20. And on that day we made a covenant with Abram, according as we had covenanted with Noah in this month; and Abram renewed the festival and ordinance for himself forever.
  21. And Abram delighted, and made all these things known to Sarai his wife; and he believed that he would have seed, but she did not bear.
  22. And Sarai advised her husband Abram, and said unto him: ‘Go in unto Hagar, my Egyptian maid: it may be that I shall build up seed unto you by her.’
  23. And Abram harkened unto the voice of Sarai his wife, and said unto her, ‘Do (so).’ And Sarai took Hagar, her maid, the Egyptian, and gave her to Abram, her husband, to be his wife.
  24. And he went in unto her, and she conceived and bare him a son, and he called his name Ishmael, in the fifth year of this week [1965 A.M.]; and this was the eighty-sixth year in the life of Abram.

[Chapter 15]
  1. And in the fifth year of the fourth week of this jubilee, [1979 A.M.] in the third month, in the middle of the month, Abram celebrated the feast of the first-fruits of the grain harvest.
  2. And he offered new offerings on the altar, the first-fruits of the produce, unto Yah, an heifer and a goat and a sheep on the altar as a burnt sacrifice unto the Yah; their fruit offerings and their drink offerings he offered upon the altar with frankincense.
  3. And Yah appeared to Abram, and said unto him: ‘I am Yah Almighty; approve yourself before Me and be you perfect.
  4. And I will make My Covenant between Me and you, and I will multiply you exceedingly.’
  5. And Abram fell on his face, and Yah talked with him, and said:
  6. ‘Behold My Ordinance is with you,
    And you shall be the father of many nations.
  7. Neither shall your name any more be called Abram,
    But your name from henceforth, even forever, shall be Abraham.
    For the father of many nations have I made you.
  8. And I will make you very great,
    And I will make you into nations,
    And kings shall come forth from you.
  9. And I shall establish My Covenant between Me and you, and your seed after you, throughout their generations, for an eternal Covenant, so that I may be a Almighty unto you, and to your seed after you.
  10. <And I will give to you and to your seed after you the land where you has been a sojourner, the land of Canaan, that thou may possess it forever, and I will be their Almighty.’
  11. And Yah said unto Abraham: ‘And as for you, do you keep My Covenant, you and your seed after you: and circumcise you every male among you, and circumcise your foreskins, and it shall be a token of an eternal Covenant between Me and you.
  12. And the child on the eighth day you shall circumcise, every male throughout your generations, him that is born in the house, or whom you have bought with money from any stranger, whom you have acquired who is not of your seed.
  13. He that is born in your house shall surely be circumcised, and those whom you has bought with money shall be circumcised, and My Covenant shall be in your flesh for an eternal ordinance.
  14. And the uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin on the eighth day, that soul shall be cut off from his people, for he has broken My Covenant.’
  15. And Yah said unto Abraham: ‘As for Sarai your wife, her name shall no more be called Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name.
  16. And I will bless her, and give you a son by her, and I will bless him, and he shall become a nation, and kings of nations shall proceed from him.’
  17. And Abraham fell on his face, delighted, and said in his heart: ‘Shall a son be born to him that is a hundred years old, and shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bring forth?’
  18. And Abraham said unto Yah: ‘O’ that Ishmael might live before You!’
  19. And Yah said: ‘Yea, and Sarah also shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac, and I will establish My Covenant with him, an everlasting Covenant, and for his seed after him.
  20. And as for Ishmael also have I heard you, and behold I will bless him, and make him great, and multiply him exceedingly, and he shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.
  21. But My Covenant will I establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you, in these days, in the next year.’
  22. And He left off speaking with him, and Yah went up from Abraham.
  23. And Abraham did according as Yah had said unto him, and he took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and whom he had bought with his money, every male in his house, and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin.
  24. And on the selfsame day was Abraham circumcised, and all the men of his house, <and those born in the house>, and all those, whom he had bought with money from the children of the stranger, were circumcised with him.
  25. This Law is for all the generations forever, and there is no circumcision of the days, and no omission of one day out of the eight days; for it is an eternal ordinance, ordained and written on the heavenly tablets.
  26. And every one that is born, the flesh of whose foreskin is not circumcised on the eighth day, belongs not to the children of the Covenant which Yah made with Abraham, but to the children of destruction; nor is there, moreover, any sign on him that he is Yah’s, but (he is destined) to be destroyed and slain from the earth, and to be rooted out of the earth, for he has broken the Covenant of Yah our Almighty.
  27. For all the angels of the presence and all the angels of sanctification have been so created from the day of their creation, and before the angels of the presence and the angels of sanctification He has sanctified Yahdaim, that they should be with Him and with His angels.
  28. And do you command the children of Yahdaim and let them observe the sign of this Covenant for their generations as an eternal ordinance, and they will not be rooted out of the land.
  29. For the command is ordained for a Covenant, that they should observe it for ever among all the children of Yahdaim.
  30. For Ishmael and his sons and his brothers and Esau, Yah did not cause to approach Him, and he chose them not because they are the children of Abraham, because He knew them, but He chose Yahdaim to be His people.
  31. And He sanctified it, and gathered it from amongst all the children of men; for there are many nations and many peoples, and all are His, and over all has He placed spirits in authority to lead them astray from Him.
  32. But over Yahdaim He did not appoint any angel or spirit, for He alone is their ruler, and He will preserve them and require them at the hand of His angels and His spirits, and at the hand of all His powers in order that He may preserve them and bless them, and that they may be His and He may be theirs from henceforth forever.
  33. And now I announce unto you that the children of Yisrael will not keep true to this ordinance, and they will not circumcise their sons according to all this Law; for in the flesh of their circumcision they will omit this circumcision of their sons, and all of them, sons of Beliar, will leave their sons uncircumcised as they were born.
  34. And there will be great wrath from Yah against the children of Yisrael. because they have forsaken His Covenant and turned aside from His Word, and provoked and blasphemed, inasmuch as they do not observe the ordinance of this Law; for they have treated their members like the Gentiles, so that they may be removed and rooted out of the land. And there will no more be pardon or forgiveness unto them [so that there should be forgiveness and pardon] for all the wickedness of this eternal error.

And in this month Yah executed his judgments on Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Zeboim, and all the region of the Jordan, and He burned them with fire and brimstone, and destroyed them until this day, even as [lo] I have declared unto you all their works, that they are wicked exceedingly, and that they defile themselves and commit fornication in their flesh, and work uncleanness on the earth.
  6. And, in like manner, Yah will execute judgment on the places where they have done according to the uncleanness of the Sodomites, like unto the judgment of Sodom.
  7. But Lot we saved; for Yah remembered Abraham, and sent him out from the midst of the overthrow.
  8. And he and his daughters committed wickedness upon the earth, such as had not been on the earth since the days of Adam till his time; for the man lay with his daughters.
  9. And, behold, it was commanded and engraved concerning all his seed, on the heavenly tablets, to remove them and root them out, and to execute judgment upon them like the judgment of Sodom, and to leave no seed of the man on earth on the day of condemnation.
  10. And in this month Abraham moved from Hebron, and departed and dwelt between Kadesh and Shur in the mountains of Gerar.
  11. And in the middle of the fifth month he moved from there, and dwelt at the Well of the Oath.
  12. And in the middle of the sixth month Yah visited Sarah and did unto her as He had spoken and she conceived.
  13. And she bare a son in the third month, and in the middle of the month, at the time of which Yah had spoken to Abraham, on the festival of the first fruits of the harvest, Isaac was born.
  14. And Abraham circumcised his son on the eighth day: he was the first that was circumcised according to the Covenant which is ordained forever.
  15. And in the sixth year of the fourth week we came to Abraham, to the Well of the Oath, and we appeared unto him [as we had told Sarah that we should return to her, and she would have conceived a son.
  16. And we returned in the seventh month, and found Sarah with child before us] and we blessed him, and we announced to him all the things which had been decreed concerning him, that he should not die till he should beget six sons more, and should see (them) before he died; but (that) in Isaac should his name and seed be called:
  17. And (that) all the seed of his sons should be Gentiles, and be reckoned with the Gentiles; but from the sons of Isaac one should become a righteous seed, and should not be reckoned among the Gentiles.
  18. For he should become the portion of the Most High, and all his seed had fallen into the possession of Yah, that it should be unto Yah a people for (His) possession above all nations and that it should become a Kingdom and priests and a righteous nation.
  19. And we went our way, and we announced to Sarah all that we had told him, and they both delighted with exceeding great delight.
  20. And he built there an altar to Yah who had delivered him, and who was making him delight in the land of his sojourning, and he celebrated a festival of delight in this month seven days, near the altar which he had built at the Well of the Oath.
  21. And he built booths for himself and for his servants on this festival, and he was the first to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles on the earth.
  22. And during these seven days he brought each day to the altar a burnt offering to Yah, two oxen, two rams, seven sheep, one he-goat, for a trespass offering, that he might atone thereby for himself and for his seed.
  23. And, as a thank-offering, seven rams, seven kids, seven sheep, and seven he-goats, and their fruit offerings and their drink offerings; and he burnt all the fat thereof on the altar, a chosen offering unto Yah for a sweet smelling savor.
  24. And morning and evening he burnt fragrant substances, frankincense and galbanum, and stackte, and nard, and myrrh, and spice, and costum; all these seven he offered, crushed, mixed together in equal parts (and) pure.
  25. And he celebrated this feast during seven days, with all his heart and with all his soul, he and all those who were in his house, and there was no stranger with him, nor any that was uncircumcised.
  26. And he blessed his Creator who had created him in his generation, for He had created him according to His good pleasure; for He knew and perceived that from him would arise the plant of righteousness for the eternal generations, and from him a righteous seed, so that it should become like Him who had made all things.
  27. And he blessed and he called the name of this festival the festival of Yah, a delight acceptable to the Most High Yah.
  28. And we blessed him forever, and all his seed after him throughout all the generations of the earth, because he celebrated this festival in its season, according to the testimony of the heavenly tablets.
  29. For this reason it is ordained on the heavenly tablets concerning Yahdaim, that they shall celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles seven days with delight, in the seventh month, acceptable before Yah -a statute forever throughout their generations every year.
  30. And to this there is no limit of days; for it is ordained forever regarding Yahdaim that they should celebrate it and dwell in booths, and set wreaths upon their heads, and take leafy boughs, and willows from the brook.
  31. And Abraham took branches of palm trees, and the fruit of goodly trees, and every day going round the altar with the branches seven times [a day] in the morning, he praised and gave thanks to his Yah for all things in delight.

Expulsion of Hagar and Ishmael, 1-14. Mastêmâ proposes that Yah should require Abraham to sacrifice Isaac in order to test his love and obedience: Abraham’s ten trials, 15-18. (Cf. Gen.xxi.8-21.)
[Chapter 17]
  1. And in the first year of the fifth week Isaac was weaned in this jubilee, [1982 A.M.] and Abraham made a great banquet in the third month, on the day his son Isaac was weaned.
  2. And Ishmael, the son of Hagar, the Egyptian, was before the face of Abraham, his father, in his place, and Abraham blessed Yah because he had seen his sons and had not died childless.
  3. And he remembered the words which He had spoken to him on the day on which Lot had parted from him, and he delighted because Yah had given him seed upon the earth to inherit the earth, and he blessed with all his mouth the Creator of all things.
  4. And Sarah saw Ishmael playing and dancing, and Abraham delighting with great delight, and she became jealous of Ishmael and said to Abraham, ‘Cast out this bondwoman and her son; for the son of this bondwoman will not be heir with my son, Isaac.’
  5. And the thing was grievous in Abraham’s sight, because of his maidservant and because of his son, that he should drive them from him.
  6. And Yah said to Abraham ‘Let it not be grievous in your sight, because of the child and because of the bondwoman; in all that Sarah has said unto you, listen to her words and do (them); for in Isaac shall your name and seed be called.
  7. But as for the son of this bondwoman I will make him a great nation, because he is of your seed.’
  8. And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread and a bottle of water, and placed them on the shoulders of Hagar and the child, and sent her away.
  9. And she departed and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba, and the water in the bottle was spent, and the child thirsted, and was not able to go on, and fell down.
  10. And his mother took him and cast him under an olive tree, and went and sat her down over against him, at the distance of a bow-shot; for she said, ‘Let me not see the death of my child,’ and as she sat she wept.
  11. And an angel of Yah, said unto her, ‘Why weep you, Hagar? Arise take the child, and hold him in your hand; for Yah has heard your voice, and has seen the child.’
  12. And she opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water, and she went and filled her bottle with water, and she gave her child to drink, and she arose and went towards the wilderness of Paran.
  13. And the child grew and became an archer, and Yah was with him, and his mother took him a wife from among the daughters of Egypt.
  14. And she bare him a son, and he called his name Nebaioth; for she said, ‘Yah was near to me when I called upon him.’
  15. And it came to pass in the seventh week, in the first year thereof, [2003 A.M.] in the first month in this jubilee, on the twelfth of this month, there were voices in heaven regarding Abraham, that he was loyal in all that He told him, and that he loved Yah, and that in every affliction he was loyal.
  16. And the prince Mastêmâ (prince of demons) came and said before Yah, ‘Behold! Abraham loves Isaac his son, and he delights in him above all things else; bid him offer him as a burnt-offering on the altar, and You will see if he will do this command, and You will know if he is loyal in everything wherein You dose try him.
  17. And Yah knew that Abraham was loyal in all his afflictions; for He had tried him through his country and with famine, and had tried him with the wealth of kings, and had tried him again through his wife, when she was torn (from him), and with circumcision; and had tried him through Ishmael and Hagar, his maid-servant, when he sent them away.
  18. And in everything wherein He had tried him, he was found loyal, and his soul was not impatient, and he was not slow to act; for he was loyal and a lover of Yah.

[Chapter 18]
  1. And Mastêmâ (prince of demons) said to him, ‘Abraham, Abraham’; and he said, Behold, (here) am I.’
  2. And He said, Take your beloved son whom you love, (even) Isaac, and go unto the high country, and offer him on one of the mountains which I will point out unto you.’
  3. And he rose early in the morning and saddled his ass, and took his two young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood of the burnt offering, and he went to the place on the third day, and he saw the place afar off.
  4. And he came to a well of water, and he said to his young men, ‘Abide you here with the ass, and I and the lad shall go (yonder), and when we have worshipped we shall come again to you.’
  5. And he took the wood of the burnt-offering and laid it on Isaac his son, and he took in his hand the fire and the knife, and they went both of them together to that place.
  6. And Isaac said to his father, ‘Father;’ and he said, ‘Here am I, my son.’ And he said unto him, ‘Behold the fire, and the knife, and the wood; but where the sheep for the burnt-offering is, father?’
  7. And he said, ‘Yah will provide for himself a sheep for a burnt-offering, my son.’ And he drew near to the place of the mount of Yah.
  8. And he built an altar, and he placed the wood on the altar, and bound Isaac his son, and placed him on the wood which was upon the altar, and stretched forth his hand to take the knife to slay Isaac his son.
  9. And I stood before him, and before the prince Mastêmâ, and Yah said, ‘Bid him not to lay his hand on the lad, nor to do anything to him, for I have shown that he fears Yah.’
  10. And I called to him from heaven, and said unto him: ‘Abraham, Abraham;’ and he was terrified and said: ‘Behold, (here) am I.’
  11. And I said unto him: ‘Lay not your hand upon the lad, neither do you anything to him; for now I have shown that you fear Yah, and has not withheld your son, your first-born son, from Me.’
  12. And the prince Mastêmâ (prince of demons) was put to shame; and Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold a ram caught . . . by his horns, and Abraham went and took the ram and offered it for a burnt-offering in the stead of his son.
  13. And Abraham called that place ‘Yah has seen’, so that it is said in the mountYah has seen: that is Mount Sion.
  14. And Yah called Abraham by his name a second time from heaven, as he caused us to appear to speak to him in the name of Yah.
  15. And he said: ‘By Myself have I sworn, said Yah,
Because you has done this thing,
And has not withheld your son, your beloved son, from Me,
That in blessing I will bless you,
And in multiplying I will multiply your seed
As the stars of heaven, And as the sand which is on the seashore.
And your seed shall inherit the cities of its enemies,
  1. And in your seed shall all nations of the earth be blessed;
Because you has obeyed My Voice,
And I have shown to all that you are loyal unto Me in all that I have said unto you:
Go in peace.’
  1. And Abraham went to his young men, and they arose and went together to Beersheba, and Abraham [2010 A.M.] dwelt by the Well of the Oath.
  2. And he celebrated this festival every year, seven days with delight, and he called it the Festival of Yah according to the seven days during which he went and returned in peace.
  3. And accordingly has it been ordained and written on the heavenly tablets regarding Yahdaim and its seed that they should observe this festival seven days with the delight of festival.

Return of Abraham to Hebron. Death and burial of Sarah, 1-9. Marriage of Isaac and second marriage of Abraham. Birth of Esau and Jacob, 10-14. Abraham commends Jacob to Rebecca and blesses him, 15-31. (Cf. Gen. xxiii.1-4, 11-16; xxiv.15; xxv.1-2, 25-7; xiii. 16.)
[Chapter 19]
  1. And in the first year of the first week in the forty-second jubilee, Abraham returned and dwelt opposite Hebron, that is Kirjath Arba, two weeks of years.
  2. And in the first year of the third week of this jubilee the days of the life of Sarah were accomplished, and she died in Hebron.
  3. And Abraham went to mourn over her and bury her, and we tried him [to see] if his spirit were patient and he were not indignant in the words of his mouth; and he was found patient in this, and was not disturbed.
  4. For in patience of spirit he conversed with the children of Heth, to the intent that they should give him a place in which to bury his dead.
  5. And Yah gave him honor before all who saw him, and he besought in gentleness the sons of Heth, and they gave him the land of the double cave over against Mamre, that is Hebron, for four hundred pieces of silver.
  6. And they besought him saying, We shall give it to you for nothing; but he would not take it from their hands for nothing, for he gave the price of the place, the money in full, and he bowed down before them twice, and after this he buried his dead in the double cave.
  7. And all the days of the life of Sarah were one hundred and twenty-seven years, that is, two jubilees and four weeks and one year: these are the days of the years of the life of Sarah.
  8. This is the tenth trial wherewith Abraham was tried, and he was found loyal, patient in spirit.
  9. And he said not a single word regarding the rumor in the land how that Yah had said that He would give it to him and to his seed after him, and he begged a place there to bury his dead; for he was found loyal, and was recorded on the heavenly tablets as the friend of Yah.
  10. And in the fourth year thereof he took a wife for his son Isaac and her name was Rebecca [2020 A.M.] [the daughter of Bethual, the son of Nahor, the brother of Abraham] the sister of Laban and daughter of Bethual; and Bethual was the son of Melca, who was the wife of Nahor, the brother of Abraham.
  11. And Abraham took to himself a third wife, and her name was Keturah, from among the daughters of his household servants, for Hagar had died before Sarah. And she bare him six sons, Zimram, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah, in the two weeks of years.
  12. And in the sixth week, in the second year thereof, Rebecca bare to Isaac two sons, Yahgob and Esau,
  13. and [2046 A.M.] Yahgob was a smooth and upright man, and Esau was fierce, a man of the field, and hairy, and Yahgob dwelt in tents.
  14. And the youths grew, and Yahgob learned to write; but Esau did not learn, for he was a man of the field and a hunter, and he learnt war, and all his deeds were fierce.
  15. And Abraham loved Yahgob, but Isaac loved Esau.
  16. And Abraham saw the deeds of Esau, and he knew that in Yahgob should his name and seed be called; and he called Rebecca and gave commandment regarding Yahgob, for he knew that she (too) loved Yahgob much more than Esau.
  17. And he said unto her:
My daughter, watch over my son Yahgob,
For he shall be in my stead on the earth,
And for a blessing in the midst of the children of men,
And for the honor of the whole seed of Shem.
  1. For I know that Yah will choose him to be a people for possession unto Himself, above all peoples that are upon the face of the earth.
  2. And behold, Isaac my son loves Esau more than Yahgob, but I see that you truly loves Yahgob.
  3. Add still further to your kindness to him,
    And let your eyes be upon him in love;
    For he shall be a blessing unto us on the earth from henceforth unto all generations of the earth.
  4. Let your hands be strong
    And let your heart delight in your son Yahgob;
    For I have loved him far beyond all my sons.
He shall be blessed forever,
And his seed shall fill the whole earth.
  1. If a man can number the sand of the earth,
    His seed also shall be numbered.
  2. And all the blessings wherewith Yah has blessed me and my seed shall belong to Yahgob and his seed always.
  3. And in his seed shall my name be blessed, and the name of my fathers, Shem, and Noah, and Enoch, and Mahalalal, and Enos, and Seth, and Adam.
  4. And these shall serve
To lay the foundations of the heaven,
And to strengthen the earth,
And to renew all the luminaries which are in the firmament.
  1. And he called Yahgob before the eyes of Rebecca his mother, and kissed him, and blessed him, and said:
  2. ‘Yahgob, my beloved son, whom my soul love, may Yah bless you from above the firmament, and may He give you all the blessings wherewith He blessed Adam, and Enoch, and Noah, and Shem; and all the things of which He told me, and all the things which He promised to give me, may he cause to cleave to you and to your seed forever, according to the days of heaven above the earth.
  3. And the Spirits of Mastêmâ (prince of demons) shall not rule over you or over your seed to turn you from Yah, who is your Almighty from henceforth for ever.
  4. And may Yah Almighty be a Father to you and you the first-born son, and to the people always.
  5. Go in peace, my son.’ And they both went forth together from Abraham.
  6. And Rebecca loved Yahgob, with all her heart and with all her soul, very much more than Esau; but Isaac loved Esau much more than Yahgob.

Abraham admonishes his sons and his sons’ sons to work righteousness, observe circumcision, and refrain from impurity and idolatry, 1-10. Dismisses them with gifts, 11. Dwelling-places of the Ishmaelites and of the sons of Keturah, 12-13. (Cf. Gen. xxv. 5-6.)
[Chapter 20]
  1. And in the forty-second jubilee, in the first year of the seventh week, Abraham called Ishmael, [2052 (2045?) A.M.] and his twelve sons, and Isaac and his two sons, and the six sons of Keturah, and their sons.
  2. And he commanded them that they should observe the way of Yah; that they should work righteousness, and love each his neighbor, and act on this manner amongst all men; that they should each so walk with regard to them as to do judgment and righteousness on the earth.
  3. That they should circumcise their sons, according to the Covenant which He had made with them, and not deviate to the right hand or the left of all the paths which Yah had commanded us; and that we should keep ourselves from all fornication and uncleanness, [and renounce from amongst us all fornication and uncleanness].
  4. And if any woman or maid commit fornication amongst you, burn her with fire and let them not commit fornication with her after their eyes and their heart; and let them not take to themselves wives from the daughters of Canaan; for the seed of Canaan will be rooted out of the land.
  5. And he told them of the judgment of the giants, and the judgment of the Sodomites, how they had been judged on account of their wickedness, and had died on account of their fornication, and uncleanness, and mutual corruption through fornication.
  6. ‘And guard yourselves from all fornication and uncleanness,
    And from all pollution of wickedness,
Lest you make our name a curse,
And your whole life a hissing,
And all your sons to be destroyed by the sword,
And you become accursed like Sodom,
And all your remnant as the sons of Gomorrah.
  1. I implore you, my sons, love the Yah of heaven
    And cleave you to all His Commandments.
And walk not after their idols, and after their uncleanness’s,
  1. And make not for yourselves molten or graven gods;
For they are vanity,
And there is no spirit in them;
For they are work of (men’s) hands,
And all who trust in them, trust in nothing.
  1. Serve them not, nor worship them,
    But serve you the Most High Yah, and worship Him continually:
    And hope for His countenance always,
    And work uprightness and righteousness before Him,
That He may have pleasure in you and grant you His mercy,
And send rain upon you morning and evening,
And bless all your works which you have worked upon the earth,
And bless your bread and your water,
And bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your land,
And the herds of your cattle, and the flocks of your sheep.
  1. And you will be for a blessing on the earth,
    And all nations of the earth will desire you,
And bless your sons in my name,
That they may be blessed as I am.
  1. And he gave to Ishmael and to his sons, and to the sons of Keturah, gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, and he gave everything to Isaac his son.
  2. And Ishmael and his sons, and the sons of Keturah and their sons, went together and dwelt from Paran to the entering in of Babylon in all the land which is towards the East facing the desert.

Abraham’s last words to Isaac regarding idolatry, the eating of blood, the offering of various sacrifices and the use of salt, 1-11. Also regarding the woods to be used in sacrifice and the duty of washing before sacrifice and of covering blood etc., 12-25.
[Chapter 21]
  1. And in the sixth year of the seventh week of this jubilee Abraham called Isaac his son, and [2057 (2050?) A.M.] Commanded him: saying, ‘I am become old, and know not the day of my death, and am full of my days.
  2. And behold, I am one hundred and seventy-five years old, and throughout all the days of my life I have remembered Yah, and sought with all my heart to do His will, and to walk uprightly in all His ways.
  3. My soul has hated idols, <and I have despised those that served them, and I have given my heart and spirit> that I might observe to do the will of Him who created me.
  4. For He is the living Yah, and He is loyal, and He is righteous beyond all, and there is with Him no accepting of (men’s) persons and no accepting of gifts; for Yah is righteous, and execute judgment on all those who transgress His Commandments and despise His Covenant.
  5. And do you, my son, observe His Commandments and His Ordinances and His Judgments, and walk not after the abominations and after the graven images and after the molten images.
  6. And eat no blood at all of animals or cattle, or of any bird which flies in the heaven.
  7. And if you dose slay a victim as an acceptable peace offering, slay you it, and pour out its blood upon the altar, and all the fat of the offering offer on the altar with fine flour and the meat offering mingled with oil, with its drink offering -offer them all together on the altar of burnt offering; it is a sweet savor before Yah.
  8. And you will offer the fat of the sacrifice of thank offerings on the fire which is upon the altar, and the fat which is on the belly, and all the fat on the inwards and the two kidneys, and all the fat that is upon them, and upon the loins and liver you shall remove, together with the kidneys.
  9. And offer all these for a sweet savor acceptable before Yah, with its meat-offering and with its drink- offering, for a sweet savor, the bread of the offering unto Yah.
  10. And eat its meat on that day and on the second day, and let not the sun on the second day go down upon it till it is eaten, and let nothing be left over for the third day; for it is not acceptable [for it is not approved] and let it no longer be eaten, and all who eat thereof will bring iniquity upon themselves; for thus I have found it written in the books of my forefathers, and in the words of Enoch, and in the words of Noah.
  11. And on all your oblations you shall strew salt, and let not the salt of the covenant be lacking in all your oblations before Yah.
  12. And as regards the wood of the sacrifices, beware lest you bring (other) wood for the altar in addition to these: cypress, bay, almond, fir, pine, cedar, savin, fig, olive, myrrh, laurel, aspalathus.
  13. And of these kinds of wood lay upon the altar under the sacrifice, such as have been tested as to their appearance, and do not lay (thereon) any split or dark wood, (but) hard and clean, without fault, a sound and new growth; and do not lay (thereon) old wood, [for its fragrance is gone] for there is no longer fragrance in it as before.
  14. Besides these kinds of wood there is none other that you shall place (on the altar), for the fragrance is dispersed, and the smell of its fragrance goes not up to heaven.
  15. Observe this Commandment and do it, my son, that you may be upright in all your deeds.
  16. And at all times be clean in your body, and wash yourself with water before you approach to offer on the altar, and wash your hands and your feet before you draw near to the altar; and when you are done sacrificing, wash again your hands and your feet.
  17. And let no blood appear upon you nor upon your clothes; be on your guard, my son, against blood, be on your guard exceedingly; cover it with dust.
  18. And do not eat any blood for it is the soul; eat no blood whatever.
  19. And take no gifts for the blood of man, lest it be shed with impunity, without judgment; for it is the blood that is shed that causes the earth to transgress, and the earth cannot be cleansed from the blood of man save by the blood of him who shed it.
  20. And take no present or gift for the blood of man: blood for blood, that you may be accepted before Yah, the Most High Almighty; for He is the defense of the good: and that you may be preserved from all evil, and that He may save you from every kind of death.
  21. I see, my son,
    That all the works of the children of men are wickedness,
    And all their deeds are uncleanness and an abomination and a pollution,
    And there is no righteousness with them.
  22. Beware, lest you should walk in their ways
    And tread in their paths,
    And transgress unto death before the Most High Yah.
Else He will [hide His Face from you
And] give you back into the hands of your transgression,
And root you out of the land, and your seed likewise from under heaven,
And your name and your seed shall perish from the whole earth.
  1. Turn away from all their deeds and all their uncleanness,
    And observe the Ordinance of the Most High Yah,
    And do His will and be upright in all things.
  2. And He will bless you in all your deeds,
    And will raise up from you a plant of righteousness through all the earth, throughout all generations of the earth,
    And my name and your name shall not be forgotten under heaven for ever.
  3. Go, my son in peace.
    May the Most High Yah, my Yah and your Yah, strengthen you to do His will,
    And may He bless all your seed and the residue of your seed for the generations forever, with all righteous blessings,
    That you may be a blessing on all the earth.’

And it came to pass in the first week in the forty-fourth jubilee, in the second year, that is, the year in which Abraham died, that Isaac and Ishmael came from the Well of the Oath to celebrate the Feast of Weeks -that is, the feast of the first fruits of the harvest-to Abraham, their father, and Abraham delighted because his two sons had come.
  2. For Isaac had many possessions in Beersheba, and Isaac was wont to go and see his possessions and to return to his father.
  3. And in those days Ishmael came to see his father, and they both came together, and Isaac offered a sacrifice for a burnt offering, and presented it on the altar of his father which he had made in Hebron.
  4. And he offered a thank offering and made a feast before Ishmael, his brother: and Rebecca made new cakes from the new grain, and gave them to Yahgob, her son, to take them to Abraham, his father, from the first fruits of the land, that he might eat and bless the Creator of all things before he died.
  5. And Isaac, too, sent by the hand of Yahgob to Abraham a best thank offering, that he might eat and drink.
  6. And he eat and drank, and blessed the Most High Yah,
Who has created heaven and earth,
Who has made all the fat things of the earth,
And given them to the children of men
That they might eat and drink and bless their Creator.
  1. ‘And now I give thanks unto You, my Yah, because You has caused me to see this day: behold! I am one hundred three score and fifteen years, an old man and full of days, and all my days have been unto me peace.
  2. The sword of the adversary has not overcome me in all that You has given me and my children all the days of my life until this day.
  3. My Yah, may Your mercy and Your peace be upon Your servant, and upon the seed of his sons, that they may be to You a chosen nation and an inheritance from amongst all the nations of the earth from henceforth unto all the days of the generations of the earth, unto all the ages.’
  4. And he called Yahgob and said: ‘My son Yahgob, may Yah of all bless you and strengthen you to do righteousness, and His will before Him, and may He choose you and your seed that you may become a people for His inheritance according to His will always.
  5. And do you, my son, Yahgob, draw near and kiss me.’ And he drew near and kissed him, and he said:
‘Blessed be my son Yahgob
And all the sons of Yah Most High, unto all the ages:
May Yah give unto you a seed of righteousness;
And some of your sons may He sanctify in the midst of the whole earth;
May nations serve you,
And all the nations bow themselves before your seed.
  1. Be strong in the presence of men,
    And exercise authority over all the seed of Seth.
Then your ways and the ways of your sons will be justified,
So that they shall become a honored nation.
  1. May the Most High Yah give you all the blessings
    Wherewith He has blessed me
And wherewith He blessed Noah and Adam;
May they rest on the sacred head of your seed from generation to generation forever.
  1. And may He cleanse you from all unrighteousness and impurity,
    That you may be forgiven all the transgressions; which you has committed ignorantly.
And may He strengthen you,
And bless you.
And may you inherit the whole earth,
  1. And may He renew His Covenant with you.
    That you may be to Him a nation for His inheritance for all the ages,
    And that He may be to you and to your seed a Almighty in truth and righteousness throughout all the days of the earth.
  2. And do you, my son Yahgob, remember my words,
    And observe the Commandments of Abraham, your father:
Separate yourself from the nations,
And eat not with them:
And do not according to their works,
And become not their associate;
For their works are unclean,
And all their ways are a Pollution and an abomination and uncleanness.
  1. They offer their sacrifices to the dead
    And they worship evil spirits,
And they eat over the graves,
And all their works are vanity and nothingness.
  1. They have no heart to understand
    And their eyes do not see what their works are,
And how they err in saying to a piece of wood: ‘Thou art my God,’
And to a stone: ‘Thou art my Lord and thou art my deliverer.’
[And they have no heart.]
  1. And as for you, my son Yahgob,
    May the Most High Yah help you
    And Yah of heaven bless you
    And remove you from their uncleanness and from all their error.
  2. Be you aware, my son Yahgob, of taking a wife from any seed of the daughters of Canaan;
For all his seed is to be rooted out of the earth.
  1. For, owing to the transgression of Ham, Canaan erred,
    And all his seed shall be destroyed from off the earth and all the residue thereof,
    And none springing from him shall be saved on the Day of Judgment.
  2. And as for all the worshippers of idols and the profane
    (b) There shall be no hope for them in the land of the living;
    (c) And there shall be no remembrance of them on the earth;
    (c) For they shall descend into Sheol,
    (d) And into the place of condemnation shall they go,
As the children of Sodom were taken away from the earth
So will all those who worship idols be taken away.
  1. Fear not, my son Yahgob,
    And be not dismayed, O’ son of Abraham:
May the Most High Yah preserve you from destruction,
And from all the paths of error may he deliver you.
  1. This house have I built for myself that I might put my name upon it in the earth: [it is given to you and to your seed forever], and it will be named the house of Abraham; it is given to you and to your seed forever; for you will build my house and establish my name before Yah for ever: your seed and your name will stand throughout all generations of the earth.’
  2. And he ceased commanding him and blessing him.
  3. And the two lay together on one bed, and Yahgob slept in the bosom of Abraham, his father’s father and he kissed him seven times, and his affection and his heart delighted over him.
  4. And he blessed him with all his heart and said: ‘The Most High Yah, the Almighty of all, and Creator of all, who brought me forth from Ur of the Chaldees that he might give me this land to inherit it forever, and that I might establish a righteous seed-blessed be the Most High forever.’
  5. And he blessed Yahgob and said: ‘My son, over whom with all my heart and my affection I delight, may your kindness and Your mercy be lift up upon him and upon his seed always.
  6. And do not forsake him, nor set him at naught from henceforth unto the days of eternity, and may Your eyes be opened upon him and upon his seed, that You may preserve him, and bless him, and may sanctify him as a nation for Your inheritance;
  7. And bless him with all Your blessings from henceforth unto all the days of eternity, and renew Your Covenant and Your mercy with him and with his seed according to all Your good pleasure unto all the generations of the earth.’

Abraham’s death and burial, 1-8 (cf. Gen. xxv.7-10). Decreasing years and increasing corruption of mankind:  Universal strife: the righteous rise up in arms to bring back the disloyal: Israel invaded by the Gentiles, 11-25. Renewed study of the Law and renewal of mankind:  Yahdaim kingdom: blessed immortality of the righteous, 26-31.
[Chapter 23]
  1. And he placed two fingers of Yahgob on his eyes, and he blessed Yah Almighty, and he covered his face and stretched out his feet and slept the sleep of eternity, and was gathered to his fathers.
  2. And notwithstanding all this Yahgob was lying in his bosom, and knew not that Abraham, his father’s father, was dead.
  3. And Yahgob awoke from his sleep, and behold Abraham was cold as ice, and he said ‘Father, father’; but there was none that spoke, and he knew that he was dead.
  4. And he arose from his bosom and ran and told Rebecca, his mother; and Rebecca went to Isaac in the night, and told him; and they went together, and Yahgob with them, and a lamp was in his hand, and when they had gone in they found Abraham lying dead.
  5. And Isaac fell on the face of his father and wept and kissed him.
  6. And the voices were heard in the house of Abraham, and Ishmael his son arose, and went to Abraham his father, and wept over Abraham his father, he and all the house of Abraham, and they wept with a great weeping.
  7. And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the double cave, near Sarah his wife, and they wept for him forty days, all the men of his house, and Isaac and Ishmael, and all their sons, and all the sons of Keturah in their places; and the days of weeping for Abraham were ended.
  8. And he lived three jubilees and four weeks of years, one hundred and seventy-five years, and completed the days of his life, being old and full of days.
  9. For the days of the forefathers, of their life, were nineteen jubilees; and after the Flood they began to grow less than nineteen jubilees, and to decrease in jubilees, and to grow old quickly, and to be full of their days by reason of manifold tribulation and the wickedness of their ways, with the exception of Abraham.
  10. For Abraham was perfect in all his deeds with Yah, and well-pleasing in righteousness all the days of his life; and behold, he did not complete four jubilees in his life, when he had grown old by reason of the wickedness, and was full of his days.
  11. And all the generations which shall arise from this time until the day of the great Judgment shall grow old quickly, before they complete two jubilees, and their knowledge shall forsake them by reason of their old age Land all their know- ledge shall vanish away].
  12. And in those days, if a man live a jubilee and a-half of years, they shall say regarding him: ‘He has lived long, and the greater part of his days are pain and sorrow and tribulation, and there is no peace:
  13. For calamity follows on calamity, and wound on wound, and tribulation on tribulation, and evil tidings on evil tidings, and illness on illness, and all evil judgments such as these, one with another, illness and overthrow, and snow and frost and ice, and fever, and chills, and torpor, and famine, and death, and sword, and captivity, and all kinds of calamities and pains.’
  14. And all these shall come on an evil generation, which transgresses on the earth: their works are uncleanness and fornication, and pollution and abominations.
  15. Then they shall say: ‘The days of the forefathers were many (even), unto a thousand years, and were good; but behold, the days of our life, if a man has lived many, are three score years and ten, and, if he is strong, four score years, and those evil, and there is no peace in the days of this evil generation.’
  16. And in that generation the sons shall convict their fathers and their aged of wickedness and unrighteousness, and of the words of their mouth and the great wickedness’s which they perpetrate, and concerning their forsaking the Covenant which Yah made between them and Him, that they should observe and do all His Commandments and His Ordinances and all His Laws, without departing either to the right hand or the left.
  17. For all have done evil, and every mouth speaks iniquity and all their works are an uncleanness and an abomination, and all their ways are pollution, uncleanness and destruction.
  18. Behold the earth shall be destroyed on account of all their works, and there shall be no seed of the vine, and no oil; for their works are altogether treacherous, and they shall all perish together, beasts and cattle and birds, and all the fish of the sea, on account of the children of men.
  19. And they shall strive one with another, the young with the old, and the old with the young, the poor with the rich, the lowly with the great, and the beggar with the prince, on account of the law and the covenant; for they have forgotten Commandment, and Covenant, and Feasts, and months, and Sabbaths, and Jubilees, and all judgments.
  20. And they shall stand <with bows and> swords and war to turn them back into the way; but they shall not return until much blood has been shed on the earth, one by another.
  21. And those who have escaped shall not return from their wickedness to the way of righteousness, but they shall all exalt themselves to deceit and wealth, that they may each take all that is his neighbor’s, and they shall name the great name, but not in truth and not in righteousness, and they shall defile the Sanctuary with their uncleanness and the corruption of their pollution.
  22. And a great punishment shall befall the deeds of this generation from Yah, and He will give them over to the sword and to judgment and to captivity, and to be plundered and devoured.
  23. And He will wake up against them the wicked of the Gentiles, who have neither mercy nor compassion, and who shall respect the person of none, neither old nor young, nor any one, for they are more wicked and strong to do evil than all the children of men.
And they shall use violence against Yahdaim and transgression against Yahgob, And much blood shall be shed upon the earth,
And there shall be none to gather and none to bury.
  1. In those days they shall cry aloud, And call and pray that they may be saved from the hand of the evildoers, the Gentiles;
    But none shall be saved.
  2. And the heads of the children shall be white with grey hair,
    And a child of three weeks shall appear old like a man of one hundred years,
    And their stature shall be destroyed by tribulation and oppression.
  3. And in those days the children shall begin to study the Laws,
    And to seek the Commandments,
    And to return to the path of righteousness.
  4. And the days shall begin to grow many and increase amongst those children of men till their days draw near to one thousand years.
    And to a greater number of years than (before) was the number of the days.
  5. And there shall be no old man
    Nor one who is <not> satisfied with his days,
    For all shall be (as) children and youths.
  6. And all their days they shall complete and live in peace and in delight,
    And there shall be no Satan nor any evil destroyer;
    For all their days shall be days of blessing and healing.
  7. And at that time Yah will heal His servants,
    And they shall rise up and see great peace,
    And drive out their adversaries.
And the righteous shall see and be thankful,
And delight with happiness for ever and ever,
And shall see all their judgments and all their curses on their enemies.
  1. And their bones shall rest in the earth,
    And their spirits shall have much happiness,
    And they shall know that it is Yah who executes judgment,
    And shows mercy to hundreds and thousands and to all that love Him
  2. And do you, Moses, write down these words; for thus are they written, and they record (them) on the heavenly tablets for a testimony for the generations forever.

Isaac at the Well of Vision, 1 (cf. Gen. xxv. 11). Esau sells his birthright, 2-7 (cf. Gen. xxv.29-34).
[Chapter 24]
  1. And it came to pass after the death of Abraham that Yah blessed Isaac his son, and he arose from Hebron and went and dwelt at the Well of the Vision in the first year of the third week [2073 A.M.] of this jubilee, seven years.
  2. And in the first year of the fourth week a famine began in the land, [2080 A.M.] besides the first famine, which had been in the days of Abraham.
  3. And Yahgob sod lentil pottage, and Esau came from the field hungry. And he said to Yahgob his brother: ‘Give me of this red pottage.’ And Yahgob said to him: ‘Sell to me your [primogeniture, this] birthright and I will give you bread, and also some of this lentil pottage.’
  4. And Esau said in his heart: ‘I shall die; of what profit to me is this birthright?
  5. ‘And he said to Yahgob: ‘I give it to you.’ And Yahgob said: ‘Swear to me, this day,’ and he swore unto him.
  6. And Yahgob gave his brother Esau bread and pottage, and he eat till he was satisfied, and Esau despised his birthright; for this reason was Esau’s name called Edom, on account of the red pottage which Yahgob gave him for his birthright.
  7. And Yahgob became the senior, and Esau was brought down from his dignity.
  8. And the famine was over the land, and Isaac departed to go down into Egypt in the second year of this week, and went to the king of the Philistines to Gerar, unto Abimelech.
  9. And Yah appeared unto him and said unto him: ‘Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land that I shall tell you of, and sojourn in this land, and I will be with you and bless you.
  10. For to you and to your seed will I give all this land, and I will establish My oath which I swore unto Abraham your father, and I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and will give unto your seed all this land.
  11. And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because your father obeyed My Voice, and kept My charge and My Commandments, and My Laws, and My Ordinances, and My Covenant; and now obey My Voice and dwell in this land.’
  12. And he dwelt in Gelar three weeks of years.
  13. And Abimelech charged concerning him, [2080-2101 A.M.] and concerning all that was his, saying: ‘Any man that shall touch him or anything that is his shall surely die.’
  14. And Isaac waxed strong among the Philistines, and he got many possessions, oxen and sheep and camels and asses and a great household.
  15. And he sowed in the land of the Philistines and brought in a hundred-fold, and Isaac became exceedingly great, and the Philistines envied him.
  16. Now all the wells which the servants of Abraham had dug during the life of Abraham, the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham, and filled them with earth.
  17. And Abimelech said unto Isaac: ‘Go from us, for you are much mightier than we’, and Isaac departed there in the first year of the seventh week, and sojourned in the valleys of Gerar.
  18. And they dug again the wells of water which the servants of Abraham, his father, had dug, and which the Philistines had closed after the death of Abraham his father, and he called their names as Abraham his father had named them.
  19. And the servants of Isaac dug a well in the valley, and found living water, and the shepherds of Gerar struggled with the shepherds of Isaac, saying: ‘The water is ours’; and Isaac called the name of the well ‘Perversity’, because they had been perverse with us.
  20. And they dug a second well, and they struggled for that also, and he called its name ‘Enmity’. And he arose from thence and they digged another well, and for that they struggled not, and he called the name of it ‘Room’, and Isaac said: ‘Now Yah has made room for us, and we have increased in the land.’
  21. And he went up from there to the Well of the Oath in the first year of the first week in the [2108 A.M.] forty-fourth jubilee.
  22. And Yah appeared to him that night, on the new moon of the first month, and said unto him: ‘I am Yah of Abraham your father; fear not, for I am with you, and shall bless you and shall surely multiply your seed as the sand of the earth, for the sake of Abraham My servant.’
  23. And he built an altar there, which Abraham his father had first built, and he called upon the name of Yah, and he offered sacrifice to Yah of Abraham his father.
  24. And they digged a well and they found living water.
  25. And the servants of Isaac digged another well and did not find water, and they went and told Isaac that they had not found water, and Isaac said: ‘I have sworn this day to the Philistines and this thing has been announced to us.’
  26. And he called the name of that place the Well of the Oath; for there he had sworn to Abimelech and Ahuzzath his friend and Phicol the prefect Or his host.
  27. And Isaac knew that day that under constraint he had sworn to them to make peace with them.
  28. And Isaac on that day cursed the Philistines and said: ‘Cursed be the Philistines unto the day of wrath and indignation from the midst of all nations; may Yah make them a derision and a curse and an object of wrath and indignation in the hands of the evildoers the Gentiles and in the hands of the Kittim.
  29. And whoever escapes the sword of the enemy and the Kittim, may the righteous nation root out in judgment from under heaven; for they shall be the enemies and foes of my children throughout their generations upon the earth.
  30. And no remnant shall be left to them, Nor one that shall be saved on the day of the wrath of judgment;
    For destruction and rooting out and expulsion from the earth is the whole seed of the Philistines (reserved),
    And there shall no longer be left for these Caphtorim a name or a seed on the earth.
  31. For though he ascend unto heaven,
There shall he be brought down,
And though he make himself strong on earth,
There shall he be dragged forth,
And though he hide himself amongst the nations,
Even from there shall he be rooted out;
And though he descend into Sheol,
There also shall his condemnation be great,
And there also he shall have no peace.
  1. And if he go into captivity,
    By the hands of those that seek his life shall they slay him on the way,
    And neither name nor seed shall be left to him on all the earth;
    For into eternal malediction shall he depart.’
  2. And thus is it written and engraved concerning him on the heavenly tablets, to do unto him on the Day of Judgment, so that he may be rooted out of the earth.

Rebecca admonished Yahgob not to marry a Canaanites woman, 1-3. Yahgob promises to marry a daughter of Laban despite the urgent requests of Esau that he should marry a Canaanites woman, 4-10. Rebecca blesses Yahgob, 11-23. (Cf. Gen. xxviii.1-4.)
[Chapter 25]
  1. And in the second year of this week in this jubilee, Rebecca called Yahgob her son, and spoke unto [2109 A.M.] him, saying: ‘My son, do not take you a wife of the daughters of Canaan, as Esau, your brother, who took him two wives of the daughters of Canaan, and they have embittered my soul with all their unclean deeds: for all their deeds are fornication and lust, and there is no righteousness with them, for (their deeds) are evil.
  2. And I, my son, love you exceedingly, and my heart and my affection bless you every hour of the day and watch of the night.
  3. And now, my son, listen to my voice, and do the will of your mother, and do not take you a wife of the daughters of this land, but only of the house of my father, and of my father’s kindred. You shall take you a wife of the house of my father, and the Most High Yah will bless you, and your children shall be a righteous generation and a righteous seed.’
  4. And then spoke Yahgob to Rebecca, his mother, and said unto her: ‘Behold, mother, I am nine weeks of years old, and I neither know nor have I touched any woman, nor have I betrothed myself to any, nor even think of taking me a wife of the daughters of Canaan.
  5. For I remember, mother, the words of Abraham, our father, for he commanded me not to take a wife of the daughters of Canaan, but to take me a wife from the seed of my father’s house and from my kindred.
  6. I have heard before that daughters have been born to Laban, your brother, and I have set my heart on them to take a wife from amongst them.
  7. And for this reason I have guarded myself in my spirit against being corrupted in all my ways throughout all the days of my life; for with regard to lust and fornication, Abraham, my father, gave me many commands.
  8. And, despite all that he has commanded me, these two and twenty years my brother has striven with me, and spoken frequently to me and said: ‘My brother, take to wife a sister of my two wives’; but I refuse to do as he has done.
  9. I swear before you, mother that all the days of my life I will not take me a wife from the daughters of the seed of Canaan, and I will not act wickedly as my brother has done.
  10. Fear not, mother; be assured that I shall do your will and walk in uprightness, and not corrupt my ways for ever.’
  11. And thereupon she lifted up her face to heaven and extended the fingers of her hands, and opened her mouth and blessed the Most High Yah, who had created the heaven and the earth, and she gave Him thanks and praise.
  12. And she said: ‘Blessed be Yah Almighty, and may His Name be blessed for ever and ever, who has given me Yahgob as a pure son and a righteous seed; for he is Yours, and Yours shall his seed be continually and throughout all the generations for evermore.
  13. Bless him, O’ Yah, and place in my mouth the blessing of righteousness, that I may bless him.’
  14. And at that hour, when the spirit of righteousness descended into her mouth, she placed both her hands on the head of Yahgob, and said:
  15. Blessed are You, Yah of righteousness and Almighty of the ages
    And may He bless you beyond all the generations of men.
May He give you, my Son, the path of righteousness,
And reveal righteousness to your seed.
  1. And may He make your sons many during your life,
    And may they arise according to the number of the months of the year.
    And may their sons become many and great beyond the stars of heaven,
    And their numbers be more than the sand of the sea.
  2. And may He give them this goodly land -as He said He would give it to Abraham and to his seed after him always-
    And may they hold it as a possession forever.
  3. And may I see (born) unto you, my son, blessed children during my life,
    And a blessed and holy seed may all your seed be.
  4. And as you has refreshed your mother’s spirit during her life,
    The womb of her that bare you blesses you thus,
[My affection] and my breasts bless you
And my mouth and my tongue praise you greatly.
  1. Increase and spread over the earth,
    And may your seed be perfect in the delight of heaven and earth forever;
And may your seed delight,
And on the great day of peace may it have peace.
  1. And may your name and your seed endure to all the ages,
    And may the Most High Yah be their Almighty,
And may Yah of righteousness dwell with them,
And by them may His Sanctuary be built unto all the ages.
  1. Blessed be he that bless you,
    And all flesh that curse you falsely, may it be cursed.’
  2. And she kissed him, and said to him;
    ‘May Yah of the world love you
    As the heart of your mother and her affection delight in you and bless you.’
    And she ceased from blessing.

Isaac scuds Esau for venison, 1-4. Rebecca instructs Yahgob to obtain the blessing, 5-9. Yahgob under the person of Esau obtains it, 10-24. Esau brings in his venison and by his importunity obtains a blessing, 25-34. Threatens Yahgob, 35. (Cf. Gen.xxvii.)
[Chapter 26]
  1. And in the seventh year of this week Isaac called Esau, his oldest Son, and said unto him: ‘ I am [2114 A.M.] old, my son, and behold my eyes are dim in seeing, and I know not the day of my death.
  2. And now take your hunting weapons your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field, and hunt and catch me (venison), my son, and make me savory meat, such as my soul love, and bring it to me that I may eat, and that my soul may bless you before I die.’
  3. But Rebecca heard Isaac speaking to Esau.
  4. And Esau went forth early to the field to hunt and catch and bring home to his father.
  5. And Rebecca called Yahgob, her son, and said unto him: ‘Behold! I heard Isaac, your father, speak unto Esau, your brother, saying: “Hunt for me, and make me savory meat, and bring (it) to me that
  6. I may eat and bless you before Yah before I die.” And now, my son, obey my voice in that which I command you: Go to your flock and fetch me two good goats, and I will make them savory meat for your father, such as he loves, and you shall bring (it) to your father that he may eat and bless you before Yah before he die, and that you may be blessed.’
  7. And Yahgob said to Rebecca his mother: ‘Mother, I shall not withhold anything which my father would eat, and which would please him: only I fear, my mother, that he will recognize my voice and wish to touch me.
  8. And you know that I am smooth, and Esau, my brother, is hairy, and I shall appear before his eyes as an evildoer, and shall do a deed which he had not commanded me, and he will be wroth with me, and I shall bring upon myself a curse, and not a blessing.’
  9. And Rebecca, his mother, said unto him: ‘Upon me be your curse, my son, only obey my voice.’
  10. And Yahgob obeyed the voice of Rebecca, his mother, and went and fetched two good and fat goats, and brought them to his mother, and his mother made them ~savory meat~ such as he loved.
  11. And Rebecca took the goodly raiment of Esau, her oldest son, which was with her in the house, and she clothed Yahgob, her younger son, (with them), and she put the skins of the goats upon his hands and on the exposed parts of his neck.
  12. And she gave the meat and the bread which she had prepared into the hand of her son Yahgob.
  13. And Yahgob went in to his father and said: ‘I am your son: I have done according as you commanded me: arise and sit and eat of that which I have caught, father, that your soul may bless me.’
  14. And Isaac said to his son: ‘How has you found so quickly, my son?
  15. ‘And Yahgob said: ‘Because <Yah> your Almighty caused me to find.’
  16. And Isaac said unto him: Come near, that I may feel you, my son, if you are my son Esau or not.’
  17. And Yahgob went near to Isaac, his father, and he felt him and said: ‘The voice is Yahgob’s voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau,’
  18. And he discerned him not, because it was a dispensation from heaven to remove his power of perception and Isaac discerned not, for his hands were hairy as his brother Esau’s, so that he blessed him.
  19. And he said: ‘Are you my son Esau? ‘ and he said: ‘I am your son’: and he said, ‘Bring near to me that I may eat of that which you has caught, my son, that my soul may bless you.’
  20. And he brought near to him, and he did eat, and he brought him wine and he drank.
  21. And Isaac, his father, said unto him: ‘Come near and kiss me, my son.
  22. And he came near and kissed him. And he smelled the smell of his raiment, and he blessed him and said: ‘Behold, the smell of my son is as the smell of a <full> field which Yah has blessed.
  23. And may Yah give you of the dew of heaven
    And of the dew of the earth, and plenty of corn and oil:
Let nations serve you,
And peoples bow down to you.
  1. Be lord over you brethren,
    And let your mother’s sons bow down to you;
And may all the blessings wherewith Yah has blessed me and blessed Abraham, my father;
Be imparted to you and to your seed forever:
Cursed be he that curse you,
And blessed be he that bless you.’
  1. And it came to pass as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing his son Yahgob, and Yahgob had gone forth from Isaac his father he hid himself and Esau, his brother, came in from his hunting.
  2. And he also made savory meat, and brought (it) to his father, and said unto his father: ‘Let my father arise, and eat of my venison that your soul may bless me.’
  3. And Isaac, his father, said unto him: ‘Who are you? ‘And he said unto him: ‘I am your first born, your son Esau: I have done as you has commanded me.’
  4. And Isaac was very greatly astonished, and said: ‘Who is he that has hunted and caught and brought (it) to me, and I have eaten of all before you came, and have blessed him: (and) he shall be blessed, and all his seed forever.’
  5. And it came to pass when Esau heard the words of his father Isaac that he cried with an exceeding great and bitter cry, and said unto his father: ‘Bless me, (even) me also, father!’
  6. And he said unto him: ‘your brother came with guile, and has taken you’re your blessing.’ And he said: ‘Now I know why his name is named Yahgob: behold, he has supplanted me these two times: he took away my birth-right, and now he has taken away my blessing.’
  7. And he said: ‘Has you not reserved a blessing for me, father?’ and Isaac answered and said unto Esau:
‘Behold! I have made him your lord,
And all his brethren have I given to him for servants,
And with plenty of corn and wine and oil have I strengthened him:
And what now shall I do for you, my son?’
  1. And Esau said to Isaac, his father:
    ‘Has you but one blessing, O’ father?
    Bless me, (even) me also, father! ‘
  2. And Esau lifted up his voice and wept. And Isaac answered and said unto him:
‘Behold, far from the dew of the earth shall be your dwelling,
And far from the dew of heaven from above.
  1. And by your sword will you live,
    And you will serve your brother.
And it shall come to pass when you become great,
And dose shake his yoke from off your neck,
You shall transgress a complete transgression unto death,
And your seed shall be rooted out from under heaven.’
  1. And Esau kept threatening Yahgob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him, and he: said in his heart: ‘May the days of mourning for my father now come, so that I may slay my brother Yahgob.

Rebecca alarmed at Esau’s threats prevails on Isaac to send Yahgob to Mesopotamia, 1-12. Isaac comforts Rebecca on the departure of Yahgob, 13-18. Yahgob’s dream and vow at Bethel, 19-27. (Cf. Gen. xxviii.)
[Chapter 27]
  1. And the words of Esau, her elder son, were told to Rebecca in a dream, and Rebecca sent and called Yahgob her younger son,
  2. And said unto him: ‘Behold Esau your brother will take vengeance on you so as to kill you!
  3. Now, therefore, my son, obey my voice, and arise and flee you to Laban, my brother, to Haran, and tarry with him a few days until your brother’s anger turns away, and he remove his anger from you, and forget all that you has done; then I will send and fetch you from there.’
  4. And Yahgob said: ‘I am not afraid; if he wishes to kill me, I will kill him.’
  5. But she said unto him: ‘Let me not be grieving of both my sons on one day.’
  6. And Yahgob said to Rebecca his mother: ‘Behold! You know that my father has become old, and does not see because his eyes are dull, and if I leave him it will be evil in his eyes, because I leave him and go away from you, and my father will be angry, and will curse me. I will not go; when he sends me, then only will I go.’
  7. And Rebecca said to Yahgob: ‘I will go in and speak to him, and he will send you away.’
  8. And Rebecca went in and said to Isaac: ‘I loathe my life because of the two daughters of Heth, whom Esau has taken him as wives; and if Yahgob take a wife from among the daughters of the land such as these, for what purpose do I further live, for the daughters of Canaan are evil.’
  9. And Isaac called Yahgob and blessed him, and admonished him and said unto him: ‘Do not take you a wife of any of the daughters of Canaan;
  10. Arise and go to Mesopotamia, to the house of Bethual, your mother’s father, and take you a wife from there of the daughters of Laban, your mother’s brother.
  11. And Yah Almighty bless you and increase and multiply you that you may become a company of nations, and give you the blessings of my father Abraham, to you and to your seed after you, that you may inherit the land of your sojourning’s and all the land which Yah gave to Abraham: go, my son, in peace.’
  12. And Isaac sent Yahgob away, and he went to Mesopotamia, to Laban the son of Bethual the Syrian, the brother of Rebecca, Yahgob’s mother.
  13. And it came to pass after Yahgob had arisen to go to Mesopotamia that the spirit of Rebecca was grieved after her son, and she wept.
  14. And Isaac said to Rebecca: ‘My sister, weep not on account of Yahgob, my son; for he goes in peace, and in peace will he return.
  15. The Most High Yah will preserve him from all evil, and will be with him; for He will not forsake him all his days;
  16. For I know that his ways will be prospered in all things wherever he goes, until he return in peace to us, and we see him in peace.
  17. Fear not on his account, my sister, for he is on the upright path and he is a perfect man: and he is loyal and will not perish. Weep not.’
  18. And Isaac comforted Rebecca on account of her son Yahgob, and blessed him.
  19. And Yahgob went from the Well of the Oath to go to Haran on the first year of the second week in the forty-fourth jubilee, and he came to Luz on the mountains, that is, Bethal, on the new moon of the first month of this week, [2115 A.M.] and he came to the place at even and turned from the way to the west of the road that night: and he slept there; for the sun had set.
  20. And he took one of the stones of that place and laid <it at his head> under the tree, and he was journeying alone, and he slept.
  21. And he dreamt that night, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven, and behold, the angels of Yah ascended and descended on it: and behold! Yah stood upon it.
  22. And He spoke to Yahgob and said: “I am Yah Almighty of Abraham, your father, and the Almighty of Isaac; the land whereon you are sleeping, to you will I give it, and to your seed after you!”
  23. And your seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and you shall increase to the west and to the east, to the north and the south, and in you and in your seed shall all the families of the nations be blessed.
  24. And behold! I will be with you, and will keep you wherever you go, and I will bring you again into this land in peace; for I will not leave you until I do everything that I told you of.’
  25. And Yahgob awoke from his sleep, and said, ‘Truly this place is the house of Yah, and I knew it not.’ And he was afraid and said: ‘Dreadful is this place which is none other than the House of Yah, and this is the gate of heaven.’
  26. And Yahgob arose early in the morning, and took the stone which he had put under his head and set it up as a pillar for a sign, and he poured oil upon the top of it. And he called the name of that place Bethal; but the name of the place was Luz at the first.
  27. And Yahgob vowed a vow unto Yah, saying: ‘If Yah will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and give me bread to eat and raiment to put on, so that I come again to my father’s house in peace, then shall Yah be my Almighty, and this stone which I have set up as a pillar for a sign in this place, shall be Yah’s House, and of all that You give me, I shall give the tenth to You, my Yah!

Yahgob marries Leah and Rachal, 1-10. His children by Leah and Rachal and by their handmaids, 11-24. Yahgob seeks to leave Laban, 25: but stays on at a certain wage, 26-8. Yahgob becomes rich, 29-30. (Cf. Gen. xxix.1, 17, 18, 21-35; xxx.1-13,17-22, 24, 25, 28, 32, 39, 43; xxxi.1, 2.)
[Chapter 28]
  1. And he went on his journey, and came to the land of the east, to Laban, the brother of Rebecca, and he was with him, and served him for Rachal his daughter one week.
  2. And in the first year of the third week [2122 A.M.] he said unto him: ‘Give me my wife, for whom I have served you seven years ‘; and Laban said unto Yahgob: ‘I will give you your wife.’
  3. And Laban made a feast, and took Leah his elder daughter, and gave (her) to Yahgob as a wife, and gave her Zilpah his handmaid for an hand- maid; and Yahgob did not know, for he thought that she was Rachal.
  4. And he went in unto her, and behold, she was Leah; and Yahgob was angry with Laban, and said unto him: ‘Why has you dealt thus with me? Did not I serve you for Rachal and not for Leah? Why has you wronged me?
  5. Take your daughter, and I will go; for you has done evil to me.’ For Yahgob loved Rachal more than Leah; for Leah’s eyes were weak, but her form was very handsome; but Rachal had beautiful eyes and a beautiful and very handsome form.
  6. And Laban said to Yahgob: ‘It is not so done in our country, to give the younger before the elder.’ And it is not right to do this; for thus it is ordained and written in the heavenly tablets, that no one should give his younger daughter before the elder; but the elder, one gives first and after her the younger -and the man who does so, they set down guilt against him in heaven, and none is righteous that does this thing, for this deed is evil before Yah.
  7. And command you the children of Yahdaim that they do not this thing; let them neither take nor give the younger before they have given the elder, for it is very wicked.
  8. And Laban said to Yahgob: ‘Let the seven days of the feast of this one pass by, and I shall give you Rachal, that you may serve me another seven years, that you may pasture my sheep as thou didst in the former week.’
  9. And on the day when the seven days of the feast of Leah had passed, Laban gave Rachal to Yahgob, that he might serve him another seven years, and he gave to Rachal Bilhah, the sister of Zilpah, as a handmaid.
  10. And he served yet other seven years for Rachal, for Leah had been given to him for nothing.
  11. And Yah opened the womb of Leah, and she conceived and bare Yahgob a son, and he called his name Reuben, on the fourteenth day of the ninth month, in the first year of the third week. [2122 A.M.]
  12. But the womb of Rachal was closed, for Yah saw that Leah was hated and Rachal loved.
  13. And again Yahgob went in unto Leah, and she conceived, and bare Yahgob a second son, and he called his name Simeon, on the twenty-first of the tenth month, and in the third year of this week. [2124 A.M.]
  14. And again Yahgob went in unto Leah, and she conceived, and bare him a third son, and he called his name Levi, in the new moon of the first month in the sixth year of this week. [2127 A.M.]
  15. And again Yahgob went in unto her, and she conceived, and bare him a fourth son, and he called his name Yahdah, on the fifteenth of the third month, in the first year of the fourth week. [2129 A.M.]
  16. And on account of all this Rachal envied Leah, for she did not bear, and she said to Yahgob: ‘Give me children’; and Yahgob said: ‘Have I withheld from you the fruits of your womb? Have I forsaken you?’
  17. And when Rachal saw that Leah had borne four sons to Yahgob, Reuben and Simeon and Levi and Yahdah, she said unto him: ‘Go in unto Bilhah my handmaid, and she will conceive, and bear a son unto me.’ (And she gave (him) Bilhah her handmaid to wife).
  18. And he went in unto her, and she conceived, and bare him a son, and he called his name Dan, on the ninth of the sixth month, in the sixth year of the third week. [2127 A.M.]
  19. And Yahgob went in again unto Bilhah a second time, and she conceived, and bare Yahgob another son, and Rachal called his name Napthali, on the fifth of the seventh month, in the second year of the fourth week. [2130 A.M.]
  20. And when Leah saw that she had become sterile and did not bear, she envied Rachal, and she also gave her handmaid Zilpah to Yahgob to wife, and she conceived, and bare a son, and Leah called his name Gad, on the twelfth of the eighth month, in the third year of the fourth week. [2131 A.M.]
  21. And he went in again unto her, and she conceived, and bare him a second son, and Leah called his name Asher, on the second of the eleventh month, in the fifth year of the fourth week. [2133 A.M.]
  22. And Yahgob went in unto Leah, and she conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Issachar, on the fourth of the fifth month, in the fourth year of the fourth week,[2132 A.M.] and she gave him to a nurse.
  23. And Yahgob went in again unto her, and she conceived, and bare two (children), a son and a daughter, and she called the name of the son Zabulon, and the name of the daughter Dinah, in the seventh of the seventh month, in the sixth year of the fourth week. [2134 A.M.]
  24. And Yah was kind to Rachal, and opened her womb, and she conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Yoseph, on the new moon of the fourth month, in the sixth year in this fourth week. [2134 A.M.]
  25. And in the days when Yoseph was born, Yahgob said to Laban: ‘Give me my wives and sons, and let me go to my father Isaac, and let me make me an house; for I have completed the years in which I have served you for your two daughters, and I will go to the house of my father.’
  26. And Laban said to Yahgob: ‘Tarry with me for your wages, and pasture my flock for me again, and take your wages.’
  27. And they agreed with one another that he should give him as his wages those of the lambs and kids which were born black and spotted and white, (these) were to be his wages.
  28. And all the sheep brought forth spotted and speckled and black, variously marked, and they brought forth again lambs like themselves, and all that were spotted were Yahgob’s and those which were not were Laban’s.
  29. And Yahgob’s possessions multiplied exceedingly, and he possessed oxen and sheep and asses and camels, and menservants and maid-servants.
  30. And Laban and his sons envied Yahgob, and Laban took back his sheep from him, and he observed him with evil intent.

Gen. xxxi.3, 4, 10, 13, 19, 21, 23, 24, 46, 47; xxxii.22; xxxiii.10, 16.)
[Chapter 29]
  1. And it came to pass when Rachal had borne Yoseph, that Laban went to shear his sheep; for they were distant from him a three days’ journey.
  2. And Yahgob saw that Laban was going to shear his sheep, and Yahgob called Leah and Rachal, and spoke kindly unto them that they should come with him to the land of Canaan.
  3. For he told them how he had seen everything in a dream, even all that He had spoken unto him that he should return to his father’s house, and they said: ‘To every place whatsoever you goes we will go with you.’
  4. And Yahgob blessed Yah of Isaac his father, and the Almighty of Abraham his father’s father, and he arose and mounted his wives and his children, and took all his possessions and crossed the river, and came to the land of Gilead, and Yahgob hid his intention from Laban and told him not.
  5. And in the seventh year of the fourth week Yahgob turned (his face) toward Gilead in the first month, on the twenty-first thereof. [2135 A.M.] And Laban pursued after him and overtook Yahgob in the mountain of Gilead in the third month, on the thirteenth thereof.
  6. And Yah did not suffer him to injure Yahgob; for he appeared to him in a dream by night. And Laban spoke to Yahgob.
  7. And on the fifteenth of those days Yahgob made a feast for Laban, and for all who came with him, and Yahgob swore to Laban that day, and Laban also to Yahgob, that neither should cross the mountain of Gilead to the other with evil purpose.
  8. And he made there a heap for a witness; wherefore the name of that place is called: ‘The Heap of Witness,’ after this heap.
  9. But before they used to call the land of Gilead the land of the Rephaim; for it was the land of the Rephaim, and the Rephaim were born (there), giants whose height was ten, nine, eight down to seven cubits.
  10. And their habitation was from the land of the children of Ammon to Mount Hermon, and the seats of their kingdom were Karnaim and Ashtaroth, and Edrei, and Misur, and Beon.
  11. And Yah destroyed them because of the evil of their deeds; for they were very malignant, and the Amorites dwelt in their stead, wicked, and there is no people to-day which has wrought to the full all their wickedness, and they have no longer length of life on the earth.
  12. And Yahgob sent away Laban, and he departed into Mesopotamia, the land of the East, and Yahgob returned to the land of Gilead.
  13. And he passed over the Jabbok in the ninth month, on the eleventh thereof. And on that day Esau, his brother, came to him, and he was reconciled to him, and departed from him unto the land of Seir, but Yahgob dwelt in tents.
  14. And in the first year of the fifth week in this jubilee [2136 A.M.] he crossed the Jordan, and dwelt beyond the Jordan, and he pastured his sheep from the sea of the heap unto Bethshan, and unto Dothan and unto the forest of Akrabbim.
  15. And he sent to his father Isaac of all his substance, clothing, and food, and meat, and drink, and milk, and butter, and cheese, and some dates of the valley.
  16. And to his mother Rebecca also four times a year, between the times of the months, between ploughing and reaping, and between autumn and the rain (season) and between winter and spring, to the tower of Abraham.
  17. For Isaac had returned from the Well of the Oath and gone up to the tower of his father Abraham, and he dwelt there apart from his son Esau.
  18. For in the days when Yahgob went to Mesopotamia, Esau took to himself a wife Mahalath, the daughter of Ishmael, and he gathered together all the flocks of his father and his wives, and went Up and dwelt on Mount Seir, and left Isaac his father at the Well of the Oath alone.
  19. And Isaac went up from the Well of the Oath and dwelt in the tower of Abraham his father on the mountains of Hebron,
  20. And there Yahgob sent all that he did send to his father and his mother from time to time, all they needed, and they blessed Yahgob with all their heart and with all their soul.

Dinah ravished, 1-3. Slaughter of the Shechemites, 4-6. Laws against intermarriage between Yahdaim and the heathen, 7-17. Levi chosen for the priesthood on account of his slaughter of the Shechemites, 18-23. Dinah recovered, 24. Yahgob’s reproof, 25-6. (Cf. Gen. xxxiii.18, xxxiv.2, 4, 7, 13-14, 25-30, xxxv.5.)
[Chapter 30]
  1. And in the first year of the sixth week [2143 A.M.] he went up to Salem, to the east of Shechem, in peace, in the fourth month.
  2. And there they carried off Dinah, the daughter of Yahgob, into the house of Shechem, the son of Hamor, the Hivite, the prince of the land, and he lay with her and defiled her, and she was a little girl, a child of twelve years.
  3. And he besought his father and her brothers that she might be given to him to wife. And Yahgob and his sons were wroth because of the men of Shechem; for they had defiled Dinah, their sister, and they spoke to them with evil intent and dealt deceitfully with them and beguiled them.
  4. And Simeon and Levi came unexpectedly to Shechem and executed judgment on all the men of Shechem, and slew all the men whom they found in it, and left not a single one remaining in it: they slew all in torments because they had dishonored their sister Dinah.
  5. And thus let it not again be done from henceforth that a daughter of Yahdaim be defiled; for judgment is ordained in heaven against them that they should destroy with the sword all the men of the Shechemites because they had wrought shame in Yahdaim.
  6. And Yah delivered them into the hands of the sons of Yahgob that they might exterminate them with the sword and execute judgment upon them, and that it might not thus again be done in Yahdaim that a virgin of Yahdaim should be defiled.
  7. And if there is any man who wishes in Yahdaim to give his daughter or his sister to any man who is of the seed of the Gentiles he shall surely die, and they shall stone him with stones; for he has wrought shame in Yahdaim; and they shall burn the woman with fire, because she has dishonored the name of the house of her father, and she shall be rooted out of Yahdaim.
  8. And let not an adulteress and no uncleanness be found in Yahdaim throughout all the days of the generations of the earth; for Yahdaim is honorable unto Yah, and every man who has defiled (it) shall surely die: they shall stone him with stones.
  9. For thus has it been ordained and written in the heavenly tablets regarding all the seed of Yahdaim: he who defile (it) shall surely die, and he shall be stoned with stones.
  10. And to this Law there is no limit of days, and no remission, nor any atonement: but the man who has defiled his daughter shall be rooted out in the midst of all Yahdaim, because he has given of his seed to Moloch, and wrought impiously so as to defile it.
  11. And do you, Moses, command the children of Yahdaim and exhort them not to give their daughters to the Gentiles, and not to take for their sons any of the daughters of the Gentiles, for this is abominable before Yah.
  12. For this reason I have written for you in the words of the Law all the deeds of the Shechemites, which they wrought against Dinah, and how the sons of Yahgob spoke, saying: ‘We will not give our daughter to a man who is uncircumcised; for that were a reproach unto us.’
  13. And it is a reproach to Yahdaim, to those who live, and to those that take the daughters of the Gentiles; for this is unclean and abominable to Yahdaim.
  14. And Yahdaim will not be free from this uncleanness if it has a wife of the daughters of the Gentiles, or has given any of its daughters to a man who is of any of the Gentiles.
  15. For there will be plague upon plague, and curse upon curse, and every judgment and plague and curse will come upon him: if he do this thing, or hide his eyes from those who commit uncleanness, or those who defile the Sanctuary of Yah, or those who profane His Name, (then) will the whole nation together be judged for all the uncleanness and profanation of this man.
  16. And there will be no respect of persons [and no consideration of persons] and no receiving at his hands of fruits and offerings and burnt-offerings and fat, nor the fragrance of sweet savor, so as to accept it: and so fare every man or woman in Yahdaim who defiles the Sanctuary.
  17. For this reason I have commanded you, saying: ‘Testify this testimony to Yahdaim: see how the Shechemites fared and their sons: how they were delivered into the hands of two sons of Yahgob, and they slew them under tortures, and it was (reckoned) unto them for righteousness, and it is written down to them for righteousness.
  18. And the seed of Levi was chosen for the priesthood, and to be Levites, that they might minister before Yah, as we, continually, and that Levi and his sons may be blessed forever; for he was zealous to execute righteousness and judgment and vengeance on all those who arose against Yahdaim.
  19. And so they inscribe as a testimony in his favor on the heavenly tablets blessing and righteousness before Yah of all:
  20. And we remember the righteousness which the man fulfilled during his life, at all periods of the year; until a thousand generations they will record it, and it will come to him and to his descendants after him, and he has been recorded on the heavenly tablets as a friend and a righteous man.
  21. All this account I have written for you, and have commanded you to say to the children of Yahdaim, that they should not commit transgressions of the ordinances nor break the Covenant which has been ordained for them, (but) that they should fulfil it and be recorded as friends.
  22. But if they transgress and work uncleanness in every way, they will be recorded on the heavenly tablets as adversaries, and they will be destroyed out of the book of life, and they will be recorded in the book of those who will be destroyed and with those who will be rooted out of the earth.
  23. And on the day when the sons of Yahgob slew Shechem a writing was recorded in their favor in heaven that they had executed righteousness and uprightness and vengeance on the wicked, and it was written for a blessing.
  24. And they brought Dinah, their sister, out of the house of Shechem, and they took captive everything that was in Shechem, their sheep and their oxen and their asses, and all their wealth, and all their flocks, and brought them all to Yahgob their father.
  25. And he reproached them because they had put the city to the sword for he feared those who dwelt in the land, the Canaanites and the Perizzites.
  26. And the dread of Yah was upon all the cities which are around about Shechem, and they did not rise to pursue after the sons of Yahgob; for terror had fallen upon them.

  2. And they gave up the strange gods and that which was in their ears and which was on their necks and the idols which Rachal stole from Laban her father she gave wholly to Yahgob. And he burnt and brake them to pieces and destroyed them, and hid them under an oak which is in the land of Shechem.
  3. And he went up on the new moon of the seventh month to Bethal. And he built an altar at the place where he had slept, and he set up a pillar there, and he sent word to his father Isaac to come to him to his sacrifice, and to his mother Rebecca.
  4. And Isaac said: ‘Let my son Yahgob come, and let me see him before I die.’
  5. And Yahgob went to his father Isaac and to his mother Rebecca, to the house of his father Abraham, and he took two of his sons with him, Levi and Yahdah, and he came to his father Isaac and to his mother Rebecca.
  6. And Rebecca came forth from the tower to the front of it to kiss Yahgob and embrace him; for her spirit had revived when she heard: ‘Behold Yahgob your son has come’; and she kissed him.
  7. And she saw his two sons, and she recognized them, and said unto him: ‘Are these your sons, my son?’ and she embraced them and kissed them, and blessed them, saying: ‘In you shall the seed of Abraham become illustrious, and you shall prove a blessing on the earth.’
  8. And Yahgob went in to Isaac his father, to the chamber where he lay, and his two sons were with him, and he took the hand of his father, and stooping down he kissed him, and Isaac clung to the neck of Yahgob his son, and wept upon his neck.
  9. And the darkness left the eyes of Isaac, and he saw the two sons of Yahgob, Levi, and Yahdah, and he said: ‘Are these your sons, my son? for they are like you.’
  10. And he said unto him that they were truly his sons: ‘And you has truly seen that they are truly my sons’.
  11. And they came near to him, and he turned and kissed them and embraced them both together.
  12. And the spirit of prophecy came down into his mouth, and he took Levi by his right hand and Yahdah by his left.
  13. And he turned to Levi first, and began to bless him first, and said unto him: May Yah of all, the very Almighty of all the ages, bless you and your children throughout all the ages.
  14. And may Yah give to you and to your seed greatness and great honor, and cause you and your seed, from among all flesh, to approach Him to serve in His Sanctuary as the angels of the presence and as the honorable ones. (Even) as they, shall the seed of your sons be for honor and greatness, and may He make them great unto all the ages.
  15. And they shall be judges and princes, and chiefs of all the seed of the sons of Yahgob;
They shall speak the Word of Yah in righteousness,
And they shall judge all His judgments in righteousness.
And they shall declare My ways to Yahgob
And My paths to Yahdaim.
The blessing of Yah shall be given in their mouths
To bless all the seed of the beloved.
  1. Your mother has called your name Levi,
    And justly has she called your name;
You shall be joined to Yah
And be the companion of all the sons of Yahgob;
Let His table be yours,
And do you and your sons eat thereof;
And may your table be full unto all generations,
And your food fail not unto all the ages.
  1. And let all who hate you fall down before you,
    And let all your adversaries be rooted out and perish;
And blessed be he that blesses you,
And cursed be every nation that curses you.’
  1. And to Yahdah he said:
    ‘May Yah give you strength and power
To tread down all that hate you;
A prince shall you be, you and one of your sons, over the sons of Yahgob;
May your name and the name of your sons go forth and traverse every land and region.
Then shall the Gentiles fear before your face,
And all the nations shall quake
[And all the peoples shall quake].
  1. In you shall be the help of Yahgob,
    And in you be found the salvation of Yahdaim.
  2. And when you sit on the throne of honor of your righteousness
    There shall be great peace for all the seed of the sons of the beloved;
Blessed be he that bless you,
And all that hate you and afflict you and curse you
Shall be rooted out and destroyed from the earth and be accursed.’
  1. And turning he kissed him again and embraced him, and delighted greatly; for he had seen the sons of Yahgob his son in very truth.
  2. And he went forth from between his feet and fell down and bowed down to him, and he blessed them and rested there with Isaac his father that night, and they eat and drank with delight.
  3. And he made the two sons of Yahgob sleep, the one on his right hand and the other on his left, and it was counted to him for righteousness.
  4. And Yahgob told his father everything during the night, how Yah had shown him great mercy, and how he had prospered (him in) all his ways, and protected him from all evil.
  5. And Isaac blessed Yah of his father Abraham, who had not withdrawn his mercy and his righteousness from the sons of his servant Isaac.
  6. And in the morning Yahgob told his father Isaac the vow which he had vowed to Yah, and the vision which he had seen, and that he had built an altar, and that everything was ready for the sacrifice to be made before Yah as he had vowed, and that he had come to set him on an ass.
  7. And Isaac said unto Yahgob his son: ‘I am not able to go with you; for I am old and not able to bear the way: go, my son, in peace; for I am one hundred and sixty-five years this day; I am no longer able to journey; set your mother (on an ass) and let her go with you.
  8. And I know, my son, that you has come on my account, and may this day be blessed on which you has seen me alive, and I also have seen you, my son.
  9. May you prosper and fulfil the vow which you has vowed; and put not off your vow; for you shall be called to account as touching the vow; now therefore make haste to perform it, and may He be pleased who has made all things, to whom you has vowed the vow.’
  10. And he said to Rebecca: ‘Go with Yahgob your son’; and Rebecca went with Yahgob her son, and Deborah with her, and they came to Bethal.
  11. And Yahgob remembered the prayer with which his father had blessed him and his two sons, Levi and Yahdah, and he blessed Yah of his fathers, Abraham and Isaac.
  12. And he said: ‘Now I know that I have an eternal hope, and my sons also, before Yah of all’; and thus is it ordained concerning the two; and they record it as an eternal testimony unto them on the heavenly tablets how Isaac blessed them.

Levi’s dream at Bethal, 1. Levi chosen to the priesthood, as the tenth son, 2-3. Yahgob celebrates the Feast of Tabernacles and offers tithes through Levi: also the second tithe, 4-9. Law of tithes ordained, 10-15. Yahgob’s visions in which Yahgob reads on the Heavenly Tablets his own future and that of his descendants, 16-26. Celebrates the eighty day of Feast of Tabernacles, 27-9. Death of Deborah, 30. Birth of Benjamin and death of Rachal, 33-4. (Cf. Gen. xxxv.8,10, 11, 13, 16-20.)
[Chapter 32]
  1. And he abode that night at Bethal, and Levi dreamed that they had ordained and made him the priest of the Most High Yah, him and his sons forever; and he awoke from his sleep and blessed Yah.
  2. And Yahgob rose early in the morning, on the fourteenth of this month, and he gave a tithe of all that came with him, both of men and cattle, both of gold and every vessel and garment, yea, he gave tithes of all.
  3. And in those days Rachal became pregnant with her son Benjamin. And Yahgob counted his sons from him upwards and Levi fell to the portion of Yah, and his father clothed him in the garments of the priesthood and filled his hands.
  4. And on the fifteenth of this month, he brought to the altar fourteen oxen from amongst the cattle, and twenty-eight rams, and forty-nine sheep, and seven lambs, and twenty-one kids of the goats as a burnt-offering on the altar of sacrifice, well pleasing for a sweet savor before Yah.
  5. This was his offering, in consequence of the vow which he had vowed that he would give a tenth, with their fruit-offerings and their drink- offerings.
  6. And when the fire had consumed it, he burnt incense on the fire over the fire, and for a thank-offering two oxen and four rams and four sheep, four he-goats, and two sheep of a year old, and two kids of the goats; and thus he did daily for seven days.
  7. And he and all his sons and his men were eating (this) with delight there during seven days and blessing and thanking Yah, who had delivered him out of all his tribulation and had given him his vow.
  8. And he tithed all the clean animals, and made a burnt sacrifice, but the unclean animals he gave (not) to Levi his son, and he gave him all the souls of the men.
  9. And Levi discharged the priestly office at Bethal before Yahgob his father in preference to his ten brothers, and he was a priest there, and Yahgob gave his vow: thus he tithed again the tithe to Yah and sanctified it, and it became honorable unto Him.
  10. And for this reason it is ordained on the heavenly tablets as a Law for the tithing again the tithe to eat before Yah from year to year, in the place where it is chosen that His Name should dwell, and to this Law there is no limit of days for ever.
  11. This ordinance is written that it may be fulfilled from year to year in eating the second tithe before Yah in the place where it has been chosen, and nothing shall remain over from it from this year to the year following.
  12. For in its year shall the seed be eaten till the days of the gathering of the seed of the year, and the wine till the days of the wine, and the oil till the days of its season.
  13. And all that is left thereof and becomes old, let it be regarded as polluted: let it be burnt with fire, for it is unclean.
  14. And thus let them eat it together in the Sanctuary, and let them not suffer it to become old.
  15. And all the tithes of the oxen and sheep shall be honorable unto Yah, and shall belong to his priests, which they will eat before Him from year to year; for thus is it ordained and engraved regarding the tithe on the heavenly tablets.
  16. And on the following night, on the twenty-second day of this month, Yahgob resolved to build that place, and to surround the court with a wall, and to sanctify it and make it honorable for ever, for himself and his children after him.
  17. And Yah appeared to him by night and blessed him and said unto him: ‘Your name shall not be called Yahgob, but Yahdaim shall they name thy name.’
  18. And He said unto him again: ‘I am Yah who created the heaven and the earth, and I will increase you and multiply you exceedingly, and kings shall come forth from you, and they shall judge everywhere wherever the foot of the sons of men has trodden.
  19. And I will give to your seed all the earth which is under heaven, and they shall judge all the nations according to their desires, and after that they shall get possession of the whole earth and inherit it forever.’
  20. And He finished speaking with him, and He went up from him. and Yahgob looked till He had ascended into heaven.
  21. And he saw in a vision of the night, and behold an angel descended from heaven with seven tablets in his hands, and he gave them to Yahgob, and he read them and knew all that was written therein which would befall him and his sons throughout all the ages.
  22. And he showed him all that was written on the tablets, and said unto him: ‘Do not build this place, and do not make it an eternal sanctuary, and do not dwell here; for this is not the place. Go to the house of Abraham your father and dwell with Isaac your father until the day of the death of your father.
  23. For in Egypt you shall die in peace, and in this land you shall be buried with honor in the sepulcher of your fathers, with Abraham and Isaac.
  24. Fear not, for as you has seen and read it, thus shall it all be; and do you write down everything as you has seen and read.’
  25. And Yahgob said: ‘Yah, how can I remember all that I have read and seen? ‘And he said unto him: ‘I will bring all things to your remembrance.’
  26. And he went up from him, and he awoke from his sleep, and he remembered everything which he had read and seen, and he wrote down all the words which he had read and seen.
  27. And he celebrated there yet another day, and he sacrificed thereon according to all that he sacrificed on the former days, and called its name ‘Addition,’ for this day was added and the former days he called ‘The Feast ‘.
  28. And thus it was manifested that it should be, and it is written on the heavenly tablets: wherefore it was revealed to him that he should celebrate it, and add it to the seven days of the feast.
  29. And its name was called ‘Addition,’ because that it was recorded amongst the days of the feast days, according to the number of the days of the year.
  30. And in the night, on the twenty-third of this month, Deborah Rebecca’s nurse died, and they buried her beneath the city under the oak of the river, and he called the name of this place, ‘The river of Deborah,’ and the oak, ‘The oak of the mourning of Deborah.’
  31. And Rebecca went and returned to her house to his father Isaac, and Yahgob sent by her hand rams and sheep and he-goats that she should prepare a meal for his father such as he desired.
  32. And he went after his mother till he came to the land of Kabratan, and he dwelt there.
  33. And Rachal bare a son in the night, and called his name ‘Son of my sorrow ‘; for she suffered in giving him birth: but his father called his name Benjamin, on the eleventh of the eighth month in the first of the sixth week of this jubilee. [2143 A.M.]
  34. And Rachal died there and she was buried in the land of Ephrath, the same is Bethlehem, and Yahgob built a pillar on the grave of Rachal, on the road above her grave.

Reuben transgress with Bilhah:

Reuben transgress with Bilhah, 1-9 (cf. Gen. xxxv.21, 22). Laws regarding incest, 10-20. Yahgob’s children, 22. (Cf. Gen. xxxv.23-7.)
[Chapter 33]
  1. And Yahgob went and dwelt to the south of Magdaladra’ef. And he went to his father Isaac, he and Leah his wife, on the new moon of the tenth month.
  2. And Reuben saw Bilhah, Rachal’s maid, the concubine of his father, bathing in water in a secret place, and he loved her.
  3. And he hid himself at night, and he entered the house of Bilhah [at night], and he found her sleeping alone on a bed in her house.
  4. And he lay with her, and she awoke and saw, and behold Reuben was lying with her in the bed, and she uncovered the border of her covering and seized him, and cried out, and discovered that it was Reuben.
  5. And she was ashamed because of him, and released her hand from him, and he fled.
  6. And she lamented because of this thing exceedingly, and did not tell it to any one.
  7. And when Yahgob returned and sought her, she said unto him: ‘I am not clean for you, for I have been defiled as regards you; for Reuben has defiled me, and has lain with me in the night, and I was asleep, and did not discover until he uncovered my skirt and slept with me.’
  8. And Yahgob was exceedingly wroth with Reuben because he had lain with Bilhah, because he had uncovered his father’s skirt.
  9. And Yahgob did not approach her again because Reuben had defiled her. And as for any man who uncovers his father’s skirt his deed is wicked exceedingly, for he is abominable before Yah.
  10. For this reason it is written and ordained on the heavenly tablets that a man should not lie with his father’s wife, and should not uncover his father’s skirt, for this is unclean: they shall surely die together, the man who lies with his father’s wife and the woman also, for they have wrought uncleanness on the earth.
  11. And there shall be nothing unclean before our Yah in the nation which He has chosen for Himself as a possession.
  12. And again, it is written a second time: ‘Cursed be he who lie with the wife of his father, for he has uncovered his father’s shame’; and all the righteous ones of the Yah said ‘So be it; so be it.’
  13. And do you, Moses, command the children of Yahdaim that they observe this word; for it (entails) a punishment of death; and it is unclean, and there is no atonement forever to atone for the man who has committed this, but he is to be put to death and slain, and stoned with stones, and rooted out from the midst of the people of our Yah.
  14. For to no man who does so in Yahdaim is it permitted to remain alive a single day on the earth, for he is abominable and unclean.
  15. And let them not say: to Reuben was granted life and forgiveness after he had lain with his father’s concubine, and to her also though she had a husband, and her husband Yahgob, his father, was still alive.
  16. For until that time there had not been revealed the ordinance and judgment and Law in its completeness for all, but in your days (it has been revealed) as a Law of seasons and of days, and an everlasting Law for the everlasting generations.
  17. And for this Law there is no consummation of days, and no atonement for it, but they must both be rooted out in the midst of the nation: on the day whereon they committed it they shall slay them.
  18. And do you, Moses, write (it) down for Yahdaim that they may observe it, and do according to these words, and not commit a transgress unto death; for the Yah our Almighty is judge, who respects not persons and accepts not gifts.
  19. And tell them these words of the Covenant, that they may hear and observe, and be on their guard with respect to them, and not be destroyed and rooted out of the land; for an uncleanness, and an abomination, and a contamination, and a pollution are all they who commit it on the earth before our Yah.
  20. And there is no greater transgress than the fornication which they commit on earth; for Yahdaim is a righteous nation unto Yah its Almighty, and a nation of inheritance, and a priestly and royal nation and for (His own) possession; and there shall no such uncleanness appear in the midst of the righteous nation.
  21. And in the third year of this sixth week [2145 A.M.] Yahgob and all his sons went and dwelt in the house of Abraham, near Isaac his father and Rebecca his mother.
  22. And these were the names of the sons of Yahgob: the first-born Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Yahdah, Issachar, Zebulon, the sons of Leah; and the sons of Rachial, Yoseph and Benjamin; and the sons of Bilhah, Dan and Naphtali; and the sons of Zilpah, Gad and Asher; and Dinah, the daughter of Leah, the only daughter of Yahgob.
  23. And they came and bowed themselves to Isaac and Rebecca, and when they saw them they blessed Yahgob and all his sons, and Isaac delighted exceedingly, for he saw the sons of Yahgob, his younger son and he blessed them.

Warfare of the Amorite kings against Yahgob and his sons, 1-9. Yahgob sends Yoseph to visit his brethren, 10. Yoseph sold and carried down into Egypt, 11-12 (cf. Gen. xxxvii.14, 17, 18, 25, 32-6). Deaths of Bilhah and Dinah, 15. Yahgob mourns for Yoseph, 13, 14, 17. Institution of Day of Atonement on day when news of Yoseph’s death arrived, 18-19. Wives of Yahgob’s son’s, 20-1.
[Chapter 34]
  1. And in the sixth year of this week of this forty-fourth jubilee [2148 A.M.] Yahgob sent his sons to pasture their sheep, and his servants with them to the pastures of Shechem.
  2. And the seven kings of the Amorites assembled themselves together against them, to slay them, hiding themselves under the trees, and to take their cattle as a prey.
  3. And Yahgob and Levi and Yahdah and Yoseph were in the house with Isaac their father; for his spirit was sorrowful, and they could not leave him: and Benjamin was the youngest, and for this reason remained with his father.
  4. And there came the king[s] of Taphu and the king[s] of ‘Aresa, and the king[s] of Seragan, and the king[s] of Selo, and the king[s] of Ga’as, and the king of Bethoron, and the king of Ma’anisakir, and all those who dwell in these mountains (and) who dwell in the woods in the land of Canaan.
  5. And they announced this to Yahgob saying: ‘Behold, the kings of the Amorites have surrounded your sons, and plundered their herds.’
  6. And he arose from his house, he and his three sons and all the servants of his father, and his own servants, and he went against them with six thousand men, who carried swords.
  7. And he slew them in the pastures of Shechem, and pursued those who fled, and he slew them with the edge of the sword, and he slew ‘Aresa and Taphu and Saregan and Selo and ‘Amani- sakir and Ga[ga]’as, and he recovered his herds.
  8. And he prevailed over them, and imposed tribute on them that they should pay him tribute, five fruit products of their land, and he built Robel and Tamnatares.
  9. And he returned in peace, and made peace with them, and they became his servants, until the day that he and his sons went down into Egypt.
  10. And in the seventh year of this week [2149 A.M.] he sent Yoseph to learn about the welfare of his brothers from his house to the land of Shechem, and he found them in the land of Dothan.
  11. And they dealt treacherously with him, and formed a plot against him to slay him, but changing their minds, they sold him to Ishmaelite merchants, and they brought him down into Egypt, and they sold him to Potiphar, the eunuch of Pharaoh, the chief of the cooks, priest of the city of ‘Elew.
  12. And the sons of Yahgob slaughtered a goat, and dipped the coat of Yoseph in the blood, and sent (it) to Yahgob their father on the tenth of the seventh month.
  13. And he mourned all that night, for they had brought it to him in the evening, and he became feverish with mourning for his death, and he said: ‘An evil beast has devoured Yoseph’; and all the members of his house [mourned with him that day, and they] were grieving and mourning with him all that day.
  14. And his sons and his daughter rose up to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted for his son.
  15. And on that day Bilhah heard that Yoseph had perished, and she died mourning him, and she was living in Qafratef, and Dinah also, his daughter, died after Yoseph had perished.
  16. And there came these three mourning’s upon Yahdaim in one month. And they buried Bilhah over against the tomb of Rachial, and Dinah also. his daughter, they buried there.
  17. And he mourned for Yoseph one year, and did not cease, for he said ‘Let me go down to the grave mourning for my son’.
  18. For this reason it is ordained for the children of Yahdaim that they should afflict themselves on the tenth of the seventh month -on the day that the news which made him weep for Yoseph came to Yahgob his father- that they should make atonement for themselves thereon with a young goat on the tenth of the seventh month, once a year, for their transgressions; for they had grieved the affection of their father regarding Yoseph his son.
  19. And this day has been ordained that they should grieve thereon for all their transgressions and for all their errors, so that they might cleanse themselves on that day once a year.
  20. And after Yoseph perished, the sons of Yahgob took unto themselves wives. The name of Reuben’s wife is ‘Ada; and the name of Simeon’s wife is ‘Adlba’a, a Canaanite; and the name of Levi’s wife is Melka, of the daughters of Aram, of the seed of the sons of Terah; and the name of Yahdah’s wife, Betasu’al, a Canaanite; and the name of Issachar’s wife, Hezaqa: and the name of Zabulon’s wife, Ni’iman; and the name of Dan’s wife, ‘Egla; and the name of Naphtali’s wife, Rasu’u, of Mesopotamia; and the name of Gad’s wife, Maka; and the name of Asher’s wife, ‘Ijona; and the name of Joseph’s wife, Asenath, the Egyptian; and the name of Benjamin’s wife, ‘Ijasaka.
  21. And Simeon repented, and took a second wife from Mesopotamia as his brothers.

GOLD YAHDAIM MISSION STATEMENT

Rebecca’s admonition to Yahgob and his reply, 1-8. Rebecca asks Isaac to make Esau swear that he will not injure Yahgob, 9-12. Isaac consents, 13-17. Esau takes the oath and likewise Yahgob, 18-26. Death of Rebecca, 27.
[Chapter 35]
  1. And in the first year of the first week of the forty-fifth jubilee [2157 A.M.] Rebecca called Yahgob, her son, and commanded him regarding his father and regarding his brother, that he should honor them all the days of his life.
  2. And Yahgob said: ‘I will do everything as you has commanded me; for this thing will be honor and greatness to me, and righteousness before Yah, that I should honor them.
  3. And you too, mother, know from the time I was born until this day, all my deeds and all that is in my heart, that I always think good concerning all.
  4. And how should I not do this thing which you has commanded me, that I should honor my father and my brother!
  5. Tell me, mother, what perversity has you seen in me and I shall turn away from it, and mercy will be upon me.’
  6. And she said unto him: ‘My son, I have not seen in you all my days any perverse but (only) upright deeds. And yet I will tell you the truth, my son: I shall die this year, and I shall not survive this year in my life; for I have seen in a dream the day of my death, that I should not live beyond a hundred and fifty-five years: and behold I have completed all the days of my life which I am to live.’
  7. And Yahgob laughed at the words of his mother because his mother had said unto him that she should die; and she was sitting opposite to him in possession of her strength, and she was not infirm in her strength; for she went in and out and saw, and her teeth were strong, and no ailment had touched her all the days of her life.
  8. And Yahgob said unto her: ‘Blessed am I, mother, if my days approach the days of your life, and my strength remain with me thus as your strength: and you will not die, for you are jesting idly with me regarding your death.’
  9. And she went in to Isaac and said unto him: ‘One petition I make unto you: make Esau swear that he will not injure Yahgob, nor pursue him with hatred; for you know Esau’s thoughts that they are perverse from his youth, and there is no goodness in him; for he desires after your death to kill him.
  10. And you know all that he has done since the day Yahgob his brother went to Haran until this day: how he has forsaken us with his whole heart, and has done evil to us; your flocks he has taken to himself, and carried off all your possessions from before your face.
  11. And when we begged and besought him for what was our own, he did as a man who was taking pity on us.
  12. And he is bitter against you because you did bless Yahgob your perfect and upright son; for there is no evil but only goodness in him, and since he came from Haran unto this day he has not robbed us of nothing, for he brings us everything in its season always, and delight with all his heart when we take at his hands and he blesses us, and has not parted from us since he came from Haran until this day, and he remains with us continually at home honoring us.’
  13. And Isaac said unto her: ‘I, too, know and see the deeds of Yahgob who is with us, how that with all his heart he honors us; but I loved Esau formerly more than Yahgob, because he was the firstborn; but now I love Yahgob more than Esau, for he has done manifold evil deeds, and there is no righteousness in him, for all his ways are unrighteousness and violence, [and there is no righteousness around him.]
  14. And now my heart is troubled because of all his deeds, and neither he nor his seed is to be saved, for they are those who will be destroyed from the earth and who will be rooted out from under heaven, for he has forsaken Yah of Abraham and gone after his wives and after their uncleanness and after their error, he and his children.
  15. And you dose bid me make him swear that he will not slay Yahgob his brother; even if he swear he will not abide by his oath, and he will not do good but evil only.
  16. But if he desires to slay Yahgob, his brother, into Yahgob’s hands will he be given, and he will not escape from his hands, [for he will descend into his hands.]
  17. And fear you not on account of Yahgob; for the guardian of Yahgob is great and powerful and honored, and praised more than the guardian of Esau.’
  18. And Rebecca sent and called Esau and he came to her, and she said unto him: ‘I have a petition, my son, to make unto you, and do you promise to do it, my son.’
  19. And he said: ‘I will do everything that you say unto me, and I will not refuse your petition.’
  20. And she said unto him: ‘I ask you that the day I die, you will take me in and bury me near Sarah, your father’s mother, and that you and Yahgob will love each other and that neither will desire evil against the other, but mutual love only, and (so) you will prosper, my sons, and be honored in the midst of the land, and no enemy will delight over you, and you will be a blessing and a mercy in the eyes of all those that love you.’
  21. And he said: ‘I will do all that you has told me, and I shall bury you on the day you die near Sarah, my father’s mother, as you has desired that her bones may be near your bones.
  22. And Yahgob, my brother, also, I shall love above all flesh; for I have not a brother in all the earth but him only: and this is no great merit for me if I love him; for he is my brother, and we were sown together in your body, and together came we forth from your womb, and if I do not love my brother, whom shall I love?
  23. And I, myself, beg you to encourage Yahgob concerning me and concerning my sons, for I know that he will assuredly be king over me and my sons, for on the day my father blessed him he made him the higher and me the lower.
  24. And I swear unto you that I shall love him, and not desire evil against him all the days of my life but good only.’
  25. And he swore unto her regarding all this matter. And she called Yahgob before the eyes of Esau, and gave him commandment according to the words which she had spoken to Esau.
  26. And he said: ‘I shall do your pleasure; believe me that no evil will proceed from me or from my sons against Esau, and I shall be first in nothing save in love only.’
  27. And they eat and drank, she and her sons that night, and she died, three jubilees and one week and one year old, on that night, and her two sons, Esau and Yahgob, buried her in the double cave near Sarah, their father’s mother.

[Chapter 36]
  1. And in the sixth year of this week [2162 A.M.] Isaac called his two sons Esau and Yahgob, and they came to him, and he said unto them: ‘My sons, I am going the way of my fathers, to the eternal house where my fathers are.
  2. Wherefore bury me near Abraham my father, in the double cave in the field of Ephron the Hittite, where Abraham purchased a sepulcher to bury in; in the sepulcher which I dug for myself, there bury me.
  3. And this I command you, my sons, that you practice righteousness and uprightness on the earth, so that Yah may bring upon you all that Yah said that he would do to Abraham and to his seed.
  4. And love one another, my sons, your brothers as a man who loves his own soul, and let each seek in what he may benefit his brother, and act together on the earth; and let them love each other as their own souls.
  5. And concerning the question of idols, I command and admonish you to reject them and hate them, and love them not, for they are full of deception for those that worship them and for those that bow down to them.
  6. Remember you, my sons, Yah Almighty of Abraham your father, and how I too worshipped Him and served Him in righteousness and in delight, that He might multiply you and increase your seed as the stars of heaven in multitude, and establish you on the earth as the plant of righteousness which will not be rooted out unto all the generations forever.
  7. And now I shall make you swear a great oath -for there is no oath which is greater than it by the name and honored and great and splendid and wonderful and mighty, which created the heavens and the earth and all things together- that you will fear Him and worship Him.
  8. And that each will love his brother with affection and righteousness, and that neither will desire evil against his brother from henceforth forever all the days of your life so that you may prosper in all your deeds and not be destroyed.
  9. And if either of you devises evil against his brother, know that from henceforth everyone that devises evil against his brother shall fall into his hand, and shall be rooted out of the land of the living, and his seed shall be destroyed from under heaven.
  10. But on the day of turbulence and execration and indignation and anger, with flaming devouring fire as He burnt Sodom, so likewise will He burn his land and his city and all that is his, and he shall be blotted out of the book of the discipline of the children of men, and not be recorded in the book of life, but in that which is appointed to destruction, and he shall depart into eternal execration; so that their condemnation may be always renewed in hate and in execration and in wrath and in torment and in indignation and in plagues and in disease forever.
  11. I say and testify to you, my sons, according to the judgment which shall come upon the man who wishes to injure his brother.
  12. And he divided all his possessions between the two on that day and he gave the larger portion to him that was the first-born, and the tower and all that was about it, and all that Abraham possessed at the Well of the Oath.
  13. And he said: ‘This larger portion I will give to the firstborn.’
  14. And Esau said, ‘I have sold to Yahgob and given my birthright to Yahgob; to him let it be given, and I have not a single word to say regarding it, for it is his.’
  15. And Isaac said, May a blessing rest upon you, my sons, and upon your seed this day, for you have given me rest, and my heart is not pained concerning the birthright, lest you should work wickedness on account of it.
  16. May the Most High Yah bless the man that work righteousness, him and his seed forever.’
  17. And he ended commanding them and blessing them, and they eat and drank together before him, and he delighted because there was one mind between them, and they went forth from him and rested that day and slept.
  18. And Isaac slept on his bed that day delighted; and he slept the eternal sleep, and died one hundred and eighty years old. He completed twenty-five weeks and five years; and his two sons Esau and Yahgob buried him.
  19. And Esau went to the land of Edom, to the mountains of Seir, and dwelt there.
  20. And Yahgob dwelt in the mountains of Hebron, in the tower of the land of the sojourning’s of his father Abraham, and he worshipped Yah with all his heart and according to the visible commands according as He had divided the days of his generations.
  21. And Leah his wife died in the fourth year of the second week of the forty-fifth jubilee, [2167 A.M.] and he buried her in the double cave near Rebecca his mother to the left of the grave of Sarah, his father’s mother
  22. and all her sons and his sons came to mourn over Leah his wife with him and to comfort him regarding her, for he was lamenting her for he loved her exceedingly after Rachal her sister died;
  23. for she was perfect and upright in all her ways and honored Yahgob, and all the days that she lived with him he did not hear from her mouth a harsh word, for she was gentle and peaceable and upright and honorable.
  24. And he remembered all her deeds which she had done during her life and he lamented her exceedingly; for he loved her with all his heart and with all his soul.

Esau’s sons reproach him for his subordination to Yahgob, and constrain him to war with the assistance of 4,000 mercenaries against Yahgob, 1-15. Yahgob reproves Esau, 16-17. Esau’s reply, 18-25.
[Chapter 37]
  1. And on the day that Isaac the father of Yahgob and Esau died, [2162 A.M.] the sons of Esau heard that Isaac had given the portion of the older to his younger son Yahgob and they were very angry.
  2. And they strove with their father, saying ‘Why has your father given Yahgob the portion of the older and passed over you, although you are the older and Yahgob the younger?’
  3. And he said unto them ‘Because I sold my birthright to Yahgob for a small mess of lentils, and on the day my father sent me to hunt and catch and bring him something that he should eat and bless me, he came with guile and brought my father food and drink, and my father blessed him and put me under his hand.
  4. And now our father has caused us to swear, me and him, that we shall not mutually devise evil, either against his brother, and that we shall continue in love and in peace each with his brother and not make our ways corrupt.’
  5. And they said unto him, ‘We shall not listen unto you to make peace with him; for our strength is greater than his strength, and we are more powerful than he; we shall go against him and slay him, and destroy him and his sons. And if you will not go with us, we shall do hurt to you also.
  6. And now hearken unto us: Let us send to Aram and Philistia and Moab and Ammon, and let us choose for ourselves chosen men who are ardent for battle, and let us go against him and do battle with him, and let us exterminate him from the earth before he grows strong.’
  7. And their father said unto them, ‘Do not go and do not make war with him lest you fall before him.’
  8. And they said unto him, ‘This too, is exactly your mode of action from your youth until this day, and you are putting your neck under his yoke.
  9. We shall not hearken to these words.’ And they sent to Aram, and to ‘Aduram to the friend of their father, and they hired along with them one thousand fighting men, chosen men of war.
  10. And there came to them from Moab and from the children of Ammon, those who were hired, one thousand chosen men, and from Philistia, one thousand chosen men of war, and from Edom and from the Horites one thousand chosen fighting men, and from the Kittim mighty men of war.
  11. And they said unto their father: “Go forth with them and lead them, else we shall slay you.’
  12. And he was filled with wrath and indignation on seeing that his sons were forcing him to go before (them) to lead them against Yahgob his brother.
  13. But afterward he remembered all the evil which lay hidden in his heart against Yahgob his brother; and he remembered not the oath which he had sworn to his father and to his mother that he would devise no evil all his days against Yahgob his brother.
  14. And notwithstanding all this, Yahgob knew not that they were coming against him to battle, and he was mourning for Leah, his wife, until they approached very near to the tower with four thousand warriors and chosen men of war.
  15. And the men of Hebron sent to him saying, ‘Behold your brother has come against you, to fight you, with four thousand wrapped with the sword, and they carry shields and weapons’; for they loved Yahgob more than Esau. So they told him; for Yahgob was a more liberal and merciful man than Esau.
  16. But Yahgob would not believe until they came very near to the tower.
  17. And he closed the gates of the tower; and he stood on the battlements and spoke to his brother Esau and said, ‘Noble is the comfort wherewith you has come to comfort me for my wife who has died. Is this the oath that you did swear to your father and again to your mother before they died? You has broken the oath, and on the moment that you did swear to your father was you condemned.’
  18. And then Esau answered and said unto him, ‘Neither the children of men nor the beasts of the earth have any oath of righteousness which in swearing they have sworn (an oath valid) forever; but every day they devise evil one against another, and how each may slay his adversary and foe.
  19. And you dose hate me and my children forever. And there is no observing the tie of brotherhood with you.
  20. Hear these words which I declare unto you,
If the boar can change its skin and make its bristles as soft as wool,
Or if it can cause horns to sprout forth on its head like the horns of a stag or of a sheep,
Then will I observe the tie of brotherhood with you
And if the breasts separated themselves from their mother, for you has not been a brother to me.
  1. And if the wolves make peace with the lambs so as not to devour or do them violence, And if their hearts are towards them for good,
    Then there shall be peace in my heart towards you.
  2. And if the lion becomes the friend of the ox and makes peace with him
    And if he is bound under one yoke with him and ploughs with him,
    Then will I make peace with you.
  3. And when the raven becomes white as the raza,
    Then know that I have loved you
    And shall make peace with you
    You shall be rooted out,
    And your sons shall be rooted out,
    And there shall be no peace for you’
  4. And when Yahgob saw that he was (so) evilly disposed towards him with his heart, and with all his soul as to slay him, and that he had come springing like the wild boar which comes upon the spear that pierces and kills it, and recoils not from it;
  5. Then he spoke to his own and to his servants that they should attack him and all his companions.

  1. And after that Yahdah spoke to Yahgob, his father, and said unto him: ‘Bend your bow, father, and send forth your arrows and cast down the adversary and slay the enemy; and may you have the power, for we shall not slay your brother, for he is such as you, and he is like you let us give him (this) honor.’
  2. Then Yahgob bent his bow and sent forth the arrow and struck Esau, his brother (on his right breast) and slew him.
  3. And again he sent forth an arrow and struck ‘Adoran the Aramaean, on the left breast, and drove him backward and slew him.
  4. And then went forth the sons of Yahgob, they and their servants, dividing themselves into companies on the four sides of the tower.
  5. And Yahdah went forth in front, and Naphtali and Gad with him and fifty servants with him on the south side of the tower, and they slew all they found before them, and not one individual of them escaped.

  9. And the sons of Yahgob pursued after them to the mountains of Seir. And Yahgob buried his brother on the hill which is in ‘Aduram, and he returned to his house.
  10. And the sons of Yahgob pressed hard upon the sons of Esau in the mountains of Seir, and bowed their necks so that they became servants of the sons of Yahgob.
  11. And they sent to their father (to inquire) whether they should make peace with them or slay them.
  12. And Yahgob sent word to his sons that they should make peace, and they made peace with them, and placed the yoke of servitude upon them, so that they paid tribute to Yahgob and to his sons always.
  13. And they continued to pay tribute to Yahgob until the day that he went down into Egypt.
  14. And the sons of Edom have not got quit of the yoke of servitude which the twelve sons of Yahgob had imposed on them until this day.
  15. And these are the kings that reigned in Edom before there reigned any king over the children of Yahdaim [until this day] in the land of Edom.
  16. And Balaq, the son of Beor, reigned in Edom, and the name of his city was Danaba.

Yoseph set over Potiphar’s house, 1-4. His purity and imprisonment, 5-13. Imprisonment of Pharaoh’s chief butler and chief baker whose dreams Yoseph interprets, 14-18. (Cf. Gen.xxxvii.2; xxxix.3-8, 12-15, 17-23; xl.1-5, 21-3; xli.1.)
[Chapter 39]
  1. And Yahgob dwelt in the land of his father’s sojourning’s in the land of Canaan. These are the generations of Yahgob.
  2. And Yoseph was seventeen years old when they took him down into the land of Egypt, and Potiphar, an eunuch of Pharaoh, the chief cook bought him.
  3. And he set Yoseph over all his house and the blessing of Yah came upon the house of the Egyptian on account of Yoseph, and Yah prospered him in all that he did.
  4. And the Egyptian committed everything into the hands of Yoseph; for he saw that Yah was with him, and that Yah prospered him in all that he did.
  5. And Yoseph’s appearance was comely [and very beautiful was his appearance], and his master’s wife lifted up her eyes and saw Yoseph, and she loved him and besought him to lie with her.
  6. But he did not surrender his soul, and he remembered Yah and the words which Yahgob, his father, used to read from amongst the words of Abraham, that no man should commit fornication with a woman who has a husband; that for him the punishment of death has been ordained in the heavens before the Most High Yah, and the transgression will be recorded against him in the eternal books continually before Yah.
  7. And Yoseph remembered these words and refused to lie with her.
  8. And she besought him for a year, but he refused and would not listen.
  9. But she embraced him and held him fast in the house in order to force him to lie with her, and closed the doors of the house and held him fast; but he left his garment in her hands and broke through the door and fled without from her presence.
  10. And the woman saw that he would not lie with her, and she calumniated him in the presence of his lord, saying ‘Your Hebrew servant, whom you love, sought to force me so that he might lie with me; and it came to pass when I lifted up my voice that he fled and left his garment in my hands when I held him, and he brake through the door.’
  11. And the Egyptian saw the garment of Yoseph and the broken door, and heard the words of his wife, and cast Yoseph into prison into the place where the prisoners were kept whom the king imprisoned.
  12. And he was there in the prison; and Yah gave Yoseph favor in the sight of the chief of the prison guards and compassion before him, for he saw that Yah was with him, and that Yah made all that he did to prosper.
  13. And he committed all things into his hands, and the chief of the prison guards knew of nothing that was with him, for Yoseph did everything, and Yah perfected it.
  14. And he remained there two years. And in those days Pharaoh, king of Egypt was wroth against his two eunuchs, against the chief butler, and against the chief baker, and he put them in ward in the house of the chief cook, in the prison where Yoseph was kept.
  15. And the chief of the prison guards appointed Yoseph to serve them; and he served before them.
  16. And they both dreamed a dream, the chief butler and the chief baker, and they told it to Yoseph.
  17. And as he interpreted to them so it befell them, and Pharaoh restored the chief butler to his office and the (chief) baker he slew, as Yoseph had interpreted to them.
  18. But the chief butler forgot Yoseph in the prison, although he had informed him what would befall him, and did not remember to inform Pharaoh how Yoseph had told him, for he forgot.

Pharaoh’s dreams and their interpretation, 1-4. Elevation and marriage of Yoseph, 5-13. (Cf. Gen. xli.1-5, 7-9, 14 seqq., 25, 29-30, 34, 36, 38-43, 45-6, 49.)
[Chapter 40]
  1. And in those days Pharaoh dreamed two dreams in one night concerning a famine which was to be in all the land, and he awoke from his sleep and called all the interpreters of dreams that were in Egypt, and magicians, and told them his two dreams, and they were not able to declare (them).
  2. And then the chief butler remembered Yoseph and spoke of him to the king, and he brought him forth from the prison, and he told his two dreams before him.
  3. And he said before Pharaoh that his two dreams were one, and he said unto him: ‘Seven years shall come (in which there shall be) plenty over all the land of Egypt, and after that seven years of famine, such a famine as has not been in all the land.
  4. And now let Pharaoh appoint overseers in all the land of Egypt, and let them store up food in every city throughout the days of the years of plenty, and there will be food for the seven years of famine, and the land will not perish through the famine, for it will be very severe.’
  5. And Yah gave Yoseph favor and mercy in the eyes of Pharaoh, and Pharaoh said unto his servants. We shall not find such a wise and discreet man as this man, for the spirit of Yah is with him.’
  6. And he appointed him the second in all his kingdom and gave him authority over all Egypt, and caused him to ride in the second chariot of Pharaoh.
  7. And he clothed him with byssus garments, and he put a gold chain upon his neck, and (a herald) proclaimed before him ‘ ‘El ‘El wa ‘Abirer,’ and placed a ring on his hand and made him ruler over all his house, and magnified him, and said unto him. ‘Only on the throne shall I be greater than you.’
  8. And Yoseph ruled over all the land of Egypt, and all the princes of Pharaoh, and all his servants, and all who did the king’s business loved him, for he walked in uprightness, for he was without pride and arrogance, and he had no respect of persons, and did not accept gifts, but he judged in uprightness all the people of the land.
  9. And the land of Egypt was at peace before Pharaoh because of Yoseph, for Yah was with him, and gave him favor and mercy for all his generations before all those who knew him and those who heard concerning him, and Pharaoh’s kingdom was well ordered, and there was no Satan and no evil person (therein).
  10. And the king called Yoseph’s name Sephantiphans, and gave Yoseph to wife the daughter of Potiphar, the daughter of the priest of Heliopolis, the chief cook.
  11. And on the day that Yoseph stood before Pharaoh he was thirty years old [when he stood before Pharaoh].
  12. And in that year Isaac died. And it came to pass as Yoseph had said in the interpretation of his two dreams, according as he had said it, there were seven years of plenty over all the land of Egypt, and the land of Egypt abundantly produced, one measure (producing) eighteen hundred measures.
  13. And Yoseph gathered food into every city until they were full of corn until they could no longer count and measure it for its multitude.

Yahdah’s sons and Tamar, 1-7. Yahdah’s incest with Tamar, 8-18. Tamar bears twins, 21-2. Yahdah forgiven, because he transgressed ignorantly and repented when convicted, and because Tamar’s marriage with his sons had not been consummated, 23-8. (Cf. Gen. xxxviii.6-18, 20-6, 29-30; xli.13.)
[Chapter 41]
  1. And in the forty-fifth jubilee, in the second week, (and) in the second year, [2165 A.M.] Yahdah took for his first-born Er, a wife from the daughters of Aram, named Tamar.
  2. But he hated, and did not lie with her, because his mother was of the daughters of Canaan, and he wished to take him a wife of the kinsfolk of his mother, but Yahdah, his father, would not permit him.
  3. And this Er, the first-born of Yahdah, was wicked, and Yah slew him.
  4. And Yahdah said unto Onan, his brother ‘Go in unto your brother’s wife and perform the duty of a husband’s brother unto her, and raise up seed unto your brother.’
  5. And Onan knew that the seed would not be his, (but) his brother’s only, and he went into the house of his brother’s wife, and spilt the seed on the ground, and he was wicked in the eyes of Yah, and He slew him.
  6. And Yahdah said unto Tamar, his daughter-in-law: ‘Remain in your father’s house as a widow till Shelah my son be grown up, and I shall give you to him to wife.’
  7. And he grew up; but Bedsu’al, the wife of Yahdah, did not permit her son Shelah to marry. And Bedsu’al, the wife of Yahdah, died [2168 A.M.] in the fifth year of this week.
  8. And in the sixth year Yahdah went up to shear his sheep at Timnah. [2169 A.M.] And they told Tamar: ‘Behold your father-in-law goes up to Timnah to shear his sheep.’
  9. And she put off her widow’s clothes, and put on a veil, and adorned herself, and sat in the gate adjoining the way to Timnah.
  10. And as Yahdah was going along he found her, and thought her to be an harlot, and he said unto her: ‘Let me come in unto you’; and she said unto him Come in,’ and he went in.
  11. And she said unto him: ‘Give me my hire’; and he said unto her: ‘I have nothing in my hand save my ring that is on my finger, and my necklace, and my staff which is in my hand.’
  12. And she said unto him ‘Give them to me until you dose send me my hire’, and he said unto her: ‘I will send unto you of the goats’; and he gave them to her, and he went in unto her, and she conceived by him.
  13. And Yahdah went unto his sheep, and she went to her father’s house.
  14. And Yahdah sent the goats by the hand of his shepherd, an Adullamite, and he found her not; and he asked the people of the place, saying: ‘Where is the harlot who was here?’ And they said unto him; ‘There is no harlot here with us.’
  15. And he returned and informed him, and said unto him that he had not found her: ‘I asked the people of the place, and they said unto me: “There is no harlot here.” ‘
  16. And he said: ‘Let her keep (them) lest we become a cause of derision.’ And when she had completed three months, it was manifest that she was with child, and they told Yahdah, saying: ‘Behold Tamar, your daughter-in-law, is with child by whoredom.’
  17. And Yahdah went to the house of her father, and said unto her father and her brothers: ‘Bring her forth, and let them burn her, for she has brought uncleanness in Yahdaim.’
  18. And it came to pass when they brought her forth to burn her that she sent to her father-in-law the ring and the necklace, and the staff, saying: ‘Discern whose are these, for by him am I with child.’
  19. And Yahdah acknowledged, and said: ‘Tamar is more righteous than I am.
  20. And therefore let them burn her not’ And for that reason she was not given to Shelah, and he did not again approach her.
  21. And after that she bare two sons, Perez [2170 A.M.] and Zerah, in the seventh year of this second week.
  22. And thereupon the seven years of fruitfulness were accomplished, of which Yoseph spoke to Pharaoh.
  23. And Yahdah acknowledged that the deed which he had done was evil, for he had lain with his daughter-in-law, and he esteemed it hateful in his eyes, and he acknowledged that he had transgressed and gone astray, for he had uncovered the skirt of his son, and he began to lament and to supplicate before Yah because of his transgression.
  24. And we told him in a dream that it was forgiven him because he supplicated earnestly, and lamented, and did not again commit it.
  25. And he received forgiveness because he turned from his transgression and from his ignorance, for he transgressed greatly before our Yah; and every one that acts thus, everyone who lies with his mother-in-law, let them burn him with fire that he may burn therein, for there is uncleanness and pollution upon them, with fire let them burn them.
  26. And do you command the children of Yahdaim that there be no uncleanness amongst them, for everyone who lies with his daughter-in-law or with his mother-in-law has brought uncleanness; with fire let them burn the man who has lain with her, and likewise the woman, and He will turn away wrath and punishment from Yahdaim.
  27. And unto Yahdah we said that his two sons had not lain with her, and for this reason his seed was stablished for a second generation, and would not be rooted out.
  28. For in singleness of eye he had gone and sought for punishment, namely, according to the judgment of Abraham, which he had commanded his sons, Yahdah had sought to burn her with fire.

Owing to the famine Yahgob sends his sons to Egypt for corn, 1-4. Yoseph recognizes them and retains Simeon, and requires them to bring Benjamin when they returned, 5-12. Notwithstanding Yahgob’s reluctance his sons take Benjamin with them on their second journey and are entertained by Yoseph, 13-25. (Cf. Gen. xli.54, 56; xlii.7-9, 13, 17, 20, 24-5, 29-30, 34-8; xliii.1-2, 4-5, 8-9, 11, 15, 23, 26, 29, 34; xliv. 1-2.)
[Chapter 42]
  1. And in the first year of the third week of the forty-fifth jubilee the famine began to come into the [2171 A.M.] land, and the rain refused to be given to the earth, for none whatever fell.
  2. And the earth grew barren, but in the land of Egypt there was food, for Yoseph had gathered the seed of the land in the seven years of plenty and had preserved it.
  3. And the Egyptians came to Yoseph that he might give them food, and he opened the store-houses where the grain of the first year was, and he sold it to the people of the land for gold.
  4. <Now the famine was very sore in the land of Canaan>, and Yahgob heard that there was food in Egypt, and he sent his ten sons that they should procure food for him in Egypt; but Benjamin he did not send, and <the ten sons of Jacob> arrived <in Egypt> among those that went (there).
  5. And Yoseph recognized them, but they did not recognize him, and he spoke unto them and questioned them, and he said unto them; ‘Are you not spies and have you not come to explore the approaches of the land? ‘And he put them in ward.
  6. And after that he set them free again, and detained Simeon alone and sent off his nine brothers.
  7. And he filled their sacks with corn, and he put their gold in their sacks, and they did not know.
  8. And he commanded them to bring their younger brother, for they had told him their father was living and their younger brother.
  9. And they went up from the land of Egypt and they came to the land of Canaan; and they told their father all that had befallen them, and how the lord of the country had spoken roughly to them, and had seized Simeon till they should bring Benjamin.
  10. And Yahgob said: ‘Me have you bereaved of my children! Yoseph is not and Simeon also is not, and you will take Benjamin away. On me has your wickedness come.
  11. ‘And he said: ‘My son will not go down with you lest perchance he fall sick; for their mother gave birth to two sons, and one has perished, and this one also you will take from me. If perchance he took a fever on the road, you would bring down my old age with sorrow unto death.’
  12. For he saw that their money had been returned to every man in his sack, and for this reason he feared to send him.
  13. And the famine increased and became sore in the land of Canaan, and in all lands save in the land of Egypt, for many of the children of the Egyptians had stored up their seed for food from the time when they saw Yoseph gathering seed together and putting it in storehouses and preserving it for the years of famine.
  14. And the people of Egypt fed themselves thereon during the first year of their famine.
  15. But when Yahdaim saw that the famine was very sore in the land, and that there was no deliverance, he said unto his sons: ‘Go again, and procure food for us that we die not.’
  16. And they said: ‘We shall not go; unless our youngest brother go with us, we shall not go.’
  17. And Yahdaim saw that if he did not send him with them, they should all perish by reason of the famine
  18. And Reuben said: ‘Give him into my hand, and if I do not bring him back to you, slay my two sons instead of his soul.’
  19. And he said unto him: ‘He shall not go with thee.’ And Judah came near and said: ‘Send him with me, and if I do not bring him back to thee, let me bear the blame before thee all the days of my life.’
  20. And he sent him with them in the second year of this week on the [2172 A.m.] first day of the month, and they came to the land of Egypt with all those who went, and (they had) presents in their hands, stacte and almonds and terebinth nuts and pure honey.
  21. And they went and stood before Yoseph, and he saw Benjamin his brother, and he knew him, and said unto them: Is this your youngest brother?’ And they said unto him: ‘It is he.’ And he said Yah be kindly to you, my son!’
  22. And he sent him into his house and he brought forth Simeon unto them and he made a feast for them, and they presented to him the gift which they had brought in their hands.
  23. And they eat before him and he gave them all a portion, but the portion of Benjamin was seven times larger than that of any of theirs.
  24. And they eat and drank and arose and remained with their asses.
  25. And Yoseph devised a plan whereby he might learn their thoughts as to whether thoughts of peace prevailed amongst them, and he said to the steward who was over his house: ‘Fill all their sacks with food, and return their money unto them into their vessels, and my cup, the silver cup out of which I drink, put it in the sack of the youngest, and send them away.’

Yoseph’s plan to stay his brethren, 1-10. Yahdah’s supplication, 11-13. Yoseph makes himself known to his brethren and sends them back for his father, 14-24. (Cf. Gen. xliv.3-10, 12-18, 27-8, 30-2; xlv.1-2, 5-9, 12, 18, 20-1, 23, 25-8.)
[Chapter 43]
  1. And he did as Yoseph had told him, and filled all their sacks for them with food and put their money in their sacks, and put the cup in Benjamin’s sack.
  2. And early in the morning they departed, and it came to pass that, when they had gone from there, Yoseph said unto the steward of his house: ‘Pursue them, run and seize them, saying, “For good you have repaid me with evil; you have stolen from me the silver cup out of which my lord drinks.” And bring back to me their youngest brother, and fetch (him) quickly before I go forth to my seat of judgment.’
  3. And he ran after them and said unto them according to these words.
  4. And they said unto him: ‘Yah forbid that your servants should do this thing, and steal from the house of your lord any utensil, and the money also which we found in our sacks the first time, we your servants brought back from the land of Canaan.
  5. How then should we steal any utensil? Behold here are we and our sacks search, and wherever you find the cup in the sack of any man amongst us, let him be slain, and we and our asses will serve your lord.’
  6. And he said unto them: ‘Not so, the man with whom I find, him only shall I take as a servant, and you shall return in peace unto your house.’
  7. And as he was searching in their vessels, beginning with the oldest and ending with the youngest, it was found in Benjamin’s sack.
  8. And they rent their garments, and laded their asses, and returned to the city and came to the house of Yoseph, and they all bowed themselves on their faces to the ground before him.
  9. And Yoseph said unto them: ‘You have done evil.’ And they said: ‘What shall we say and how shall we defend ourselves? Our lord has discovered the transgression of his servants; behold we are the servants of our lord, and our asses also.
  10. ‘And Yoseph said unto them: ‘I too fear Yah; as for you, go you to your homes and let your brother be my servant, for you have done evil. Know you not that a man delights in his cup as I with this cup? And yet you have stolen it from me.’
  11. And Yahdah said: ‘O my lord, let your servant, I pray you, speak a word in my lord’s ear two brothers did your servant’s mother bear to our father: one went away and was lost, and has not been found, and he alone is left of his mother, and your servant our father loves him, and his life also is bound up with the life of this (lad).
  12. And it will come to pass, when we go to your servant our father, and the lad is not with us, that he will die, and we shall bring down our father with sorrow unto death.
  13. Now rather let me, your servant, abide instead of the boy as a bondsman unto my lord, and let the lad go with his brethren, for I became surety for him at the hand of your servant our father, and if I do not bring him back, your servant will hear the blame to our father forever.’
  14. And Yoseph saw that they were all agreeing in goodness one with another, and he could not refrain himself, and he told them that he was Yoseph.
  15. And he conversed with them in the Hebrew tongue and fell on their neck and wept.
  16. But they knew him not and they began to weep. And he said unto them: ‘Weep not over me, but hasten and bring my father to me; and you see that it is my mouth that speak and the eyes of my brother Benjamin see.
  17. For behold this is the second year of the famine, and there are still five years without harvest or fruit of trees or ploughing.
  18. Come down quickly you and your households, so that you perish not through the famine, and do not be grieved for your possessions, for Yah sent me before you to set things in order that many people might live.
  19. And tell my father that I am still alive, and you, behold, you see that Yah has made me as a father to Pharaoh, and ruler over his house and over all the land of Egypt.
  20. And tell my father of all my honor, and all the riches and honor that Yah has given me.’
  21. And by the command of the mouth of Pharaoh he gave them chariots and provisions for the way, and he gave them all many-colored raiment and silver.
  22. And to their father he sent raiment and silver and ten asses which carried corn, and he sent them away.
  23. And they went up and told their father that Yoseph was alive, and was measuring out corn to all the nations of the earth, and that he was ruler over all the land of Egypt.
  24. And their father did not believe it, for he was beside himself in his mind; but when he saw the wagons which Yoseph had sent, the life of his spirit revived, and he said: ‘It is enough for me if Yoseph lives; I will go down and see him before I die.’

[Chapter 45]
  1. And Yahgob went into the country of Egypt, into the land of Goshen, on the new moon of the fourth [2172 A.M]. month, in the second year of the third week of the forty-fifth jubilee.
  2. And Yoseph went to meet his father Yahgob, to the land of Goshen, and he fell on his father’s neck and wept.
  3. And Yahgob said unto Yoseph: ‘Now let me die since I have seen you, and now may Yah Almighty of Yahgob be blessed the Almighty of Abraham and the Almighty of Isaac who has not withheld His mercy and His honor from His servant Yahgob.
  4. It is enough for me that I have seen your face while I am yet alive; yea, true is the vision which I saw at Bethal. Blessed be Yah my Almighty for ever and ever, and blessed be His Name.’
  5. And Yoseph and his brothers eat bread before their father and drank wine, and Yahgob delighted with exceeding great delight because he saw Yoseph eating with his brothers and drinking before him, and he blessed the Creator of all things who had preserved him, and had preserved for him his twelve sons.
  6. And Yoseph had given to his father and to his brothers as a gift the right of dwelling in the land of Goshen and in Rameses and all the region round about, which he ruled over before Pharaoh. And Yahgob and his sons dwelt in the land of Goshen, the best part of the land of Egypt and Yahgob was one hundred and thirty years old when he came into Egypt.
  7. And Yoseph nourished his father and his brethren and also their possessions with bread as much as sufficed them for the seven years of the famine.
  8. And the land of Egypt suffered by reason of the famine, and Yoseph acquired all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh in return for food, and he got possession of the people and their cattle and everything for Pharaoh.
  9. And the years of the famine were accomplished, and Yoseph gave to the people in the land seed and food that they might sow (the land) in the eighth year, for the river had overflowed all the land of Egypt.
  10. For in the seven years of the famine it had (not) overflowed and had irrigated only a few places on the banks of the river, but now it overflowed and the Egyptians sowed the land, and it bore much corn that year.
  11. And this was the first year of [2178 A.M.] the fourth week of the forty-fifth jubilee.
  12. And Yoseph took of the corn of the harvest the fifth part for the king and left four parts for them for food and for seed, and Yoseph made it an ordinance for the land of Egypt until this day.
  13. And Yahgob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years, and all the days which he lived were three jubilees, one hundred and forty-seven years, and he died in the fourth [2188 A.M.] year of the fifth week of the forty-fifth jubilee.
  14. And Yahgob blessed his sons before he died and told them everything that would befall them in the land of Egypt; and he made known to them what would come upon them in the last days, and blessed them and gave to Yoseph two portions in the land.
  15. And he slept with his fathers, and he was buried in the double cave in the land of Canaan, near Abraham his father in the grave which he dug for himself in the double cave in the land of Hebron.

[Chapter 46]
  1. And it came to pass that after Yahgob died the children of Yahdaim multiplied in the land of Egypt, and they became a great nation, and they were of one accord in heart, so that brother loved brother and every man helped his brother, and they increased abundantly and multiplied exceedingly, ten [2242 A.M.] weeks of years, all the days of the life of Yoseph.
  2. And there was no Satan nor any evil all the days of the life of Yoseph which he lived after his father Yahgob, for all the Egyptians honored the children of Yahdaim all the days of the life of Yoseph.
  3. And Yoseph died being a hundred and ten years old; seventeen years he lived in the land of Canaan, and ten years he was a servant, and three years in prison, and eighty years he was under the king, ruling all the land of Egypt.
  4. And he died and all his brethren and all that generation.
  5. And he commanded the children of Yahdaim before he died that they should carry his bones with them when they went forth from the land of Egypt.
  6. And he made them swear regarding his bones, for he knew that the Egyptians would not again bring forth and bury him in the land of Canaan, for Makamaron, king of Canaan, while dwelling in the land of Assyria, fought in the valley with the king of Egypt and slew him there, and pursued after the Egyptians to the gates of ‘Ermon.
  7. But he was not able to enter, for another, a new king, had become king of Egypt, and he was stronger than he, and he returned to the land of Canaan, and the gates of Egypt were closed, and none went out and none came into Egypt.
  8. And Yoseph died in the forty-sixth jubilee, in the sixth week, in the second year, and they buried him in the land of Egypt, and [2242 A.M.] all his brethren died after him.
  9. And the king of Egypt went forth to war with the king of Canaan [2263 A.M.] in the forty-seventh jubilee, in the second week in the second year, and the children of Yahdaim brought forth all the bones of the children of Yahgob save the bones of Yoseph, and they buried them in the field in the double cave in the mountain.
  10. And the most (of them) returned to Egypt, but a few of them remained in the mountains of Hebron, and Amram your father remained with them.
  11. And the king of Canaan was victorious over the king of Egypt, and he closed the gates of Egypt.
  12. And he devised an evil device against the children of Yahdaim of afflicting them and he said unto the people of Egypt: ‘Behold the people of the children of Yahdaim have increased and multiplied more than we.
  13. Come and let us deal wisely with them before they become too many, and let us afflict them with slavery before war come upon us and before they too fight against us; else they will join themselves unto our enemies and get them up out of our land, for their hearts and faces are towards the land of Canaan.’
  14. And he set over them taskmasters to afflict them with slavery; and they built strong cities for Pharaoh, Pithom, and Raamses and they built all the walls and all the fortifications which had fallen in the cities of Egypt.
  15. And they made them serve with rigor, and the more they dealt evilly with them, the more they increased and multiplied.
  16. And the people of Egypt abominated the children of Yahdaim.

And in the seventh week, in the seventh year, in the forty-seventh jubilee, your father went forth [2303 A.M.] from the land of Canaan, and you was born in the fourth week, in the sixth year thereof, in the [2330 A.M.] forty-eighth jubilee; this was the time of tribulation on the children of Yahdaim.
  2. And Pharaoh, king of Egypt, issued a command regarding them that they should cast all their male children which were born into the river.
  3. And they cast them in for seven months until the day that you was born
  4. And your mother hid you for three months, and they told regarding her. And she made an ark for you, and covered it with pitch and asphalt, and placed it in the flags on the bank of the river, and she placed you in it seven days, and your mother came by night and suckled you, and by day Miriam, your sister, guarded you from the birds.
  5. And in those days Tharmuth, the daughter of Pharaoh, came to bathe in the river, and she heard your voice crying, and she told her maidens to bring you forth, and they brought you unto her.
  6. And she took you out of the ark, and she had compassion on you.
  7. And your sister said unto her: ‘Shall I go and call unto you one of the Hebrew women to nurse and suckle this babe for you?’

  9. And afterwards, when you was grown up, they brought you unto the daughter of Pharaoh, and you did become her son, and Amram your father taught you writing, and after you had completed three weeks they brought you into the royal court.
  10. And you was three weeks of years at court until the time [2351-] when you did go forth from the royal court and did see an Egyptian striking your friend who was [2372 A.M.] of the children of Yahdaim, and you did slay him and hide him in the sand.
  11. And on the second day you did and two of the children of Yahdaim striving together, and you did say to him who was doing the wrong: ‘Why dose you strike your brother?’

[Chapter 48]
  1. And in the sixth year of the third week of the forty-ninth jubilee you did depart and dwell <in [2372 A.M.] the land of Midian>, five weeks and one year. And you did return into Egypt in the second week in the second year in the fiftieth jubilee.
  2. And you yourself know what He spoke unto you on [2410 A.M.] Mount Sinai, and what prince Mastêmâ desired to do with you when you was returning into Egypt <on the way when you did meet him at the lodging-place>.
  3. Did he not with all his power seek to slay you and deliver the Egyptians out of your hand when he saw that you was sent to execute judgment and vengeance on the Egyptians?
  4. And I delivered you out of his hand, and you did perform the signs and wonders which you was sent to perform in Egypt against Pharaoh, and against all his house, and against his servants and his people.
  5. And Yah executed a great vengeance on them for Yahdaim’s sake, and struck them through (the plagues of) blood and frogs, lice and dog-flies, and malignant boils breaking forth in blains; and their cattle by death; and by hail-stones, thereby He destroyed everything that grew for them; and by locusts which devoured the residue which had been left by the hail, and by darkness; and <by the death> of the first-born of men and animals, and on all their idols Yah took vengeance and burned them with fire.
  6. And everything was sent through your hand, that you should declare (these things) before they were done, and you did speak with the king of Egypt before all his servants and before his people.
  7. And everything took place according to your words; ten great and terrible judgments came on the land of Egypt that you might execute vengeance on it for Yahdaim.
  8. And Yah did everything for Yahdaim’s sake, and according to His Covenant, which He had ordained with Abraham that He would take vengeance on them as they had brought them by force into bondage.
  9. And the prince Mastêmâ stood up against you, and sought to cast you into the hands of Pharaoh, and he helped the Egyptian sorcerers,
  10. And they stood up and brought before you the evils indeed we permitted them to work, but the remedies we did not allow to be wrought by their hands.
  11. And Yah struck them with malignant ulcers, and they were not able to stand, for we destroyed them so that they could not perform a single sign.
  12. And notwithstanding all (these) signs and wonders the prince Mastêmâ was not put to shame because he took courage and cried to the Egyptians to pursue after you with all the powers of the Egyptians, with their chariots, and with their horses, and with all the hosts of the peoples of Egypt.
  13. And I stood between the Egyptians and Yahdaim, and we delivered Yahdaim out of his hand, and out of the hand of his people, and Yah brought them through the midst of the sea as if it were dry land.
  14. And all the peoples whom he brought to pursue after Yahdaim, Yah our Almighty cast them into the midst of the sea, into the depths of the abyss beneath the children of Yahdaim, even as the people of Egypt had cast their children into the river He took vengeance on 1,000,000 of them, and one thousand strong and energetic men were destroyed on account of one suckling of the children of your people which they had thrown into the river.
  15. And on the fourteenth day and on the fifteenth and on the sixteenth and on the seventeenth and on the eighteenth the prince Mastêmâ was bound and imprisoned behind the children of Yahdaim that he might not accuse them.
  16. And on the nineteenth we let them loose that they might help the Egyptians and pursue the children of Yahdaim.
  17. And he hardened their hearts and made them stubborn, and the device was devised by Yah our Almighty that He might strike the Egyptians and cast them into the sea.
  18. And on the fourteenth we bound him that he might not accuse the children of Yahdaim on the day when they asked the Egyptians for vessels and garments, vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and vessels of bronze, in order to despoil the Egyptians in return for the bondage in which they had forced them to serve.
  19. And we did not lead forth the children of Yahdaim from Egypt empty handed.

GOLD YAHDAIM MISSION STATEMENT

The Passover: regulations regarding its celebration. (Cf. Exod. xii.6, 9, 11, 13, 22-3, 30, 46; xv.22.)
[Chapter 49]
  1. Remember the Commandment which Yah commanded you concerning the Passover, that you should celebrate it in its season on the fourteenth of the first month, that you should kill it before it is evening, and that they should eat it by night on the evening of the fifteenth from the time of the setting of the sun.
  2. For on this night -the beginning of the festival and the beginning of the delight – ye were eating the passover in Egypt, when all the powers of Mastêmâ had been let loose to slay all the first-born in the land of Egypt, from the first-born of Pharaoh to the first-born of the captive maid-servant in the mill, and to the cattle.
  3. And this is the sign which Yah gave them: Into every house on the lintels of which they saw the blood of a lamb of the first year, into (that) house they should not enter to slay, but should pass by (it), that all those should be saved that were in the house because the sign of the blood was on its lintels.
  4. And the powers of Yah did everything according as Yah commanded them, and they passed by all the children of Yahdaim, and the plague came not upon them to destroy from amongst them any soul either of cattle, or man, or dog.
  5. And the plague was very grievous in Egypt, and there was no house in Egypt where there was not one dead, and weeping and lamentation.
  6. And all Yahdaim was eating the flesh of the paschal lamb, and drinking the wine, and was praising, and blessing, and giving thanks to Yah Almighty of their fathers, and was ready to go forth from under the yoke of Egypt, and from the evil bondage.
  7. And remember you this day all the days of your life, and observe it from year to year all the days of your life, once a year, on its day, according to all the Law thereof, and do not adjourn (it) from day to day, or from month to month.
  8. For it is an eternal ordinance, and engraved on the heavenly tablets regarding all the children of Yahdaim that they should observe it every year on its day once a year, throughout all their generations; and there is no limit of days, for this is ordained forever.
  9. And the man who is free from uncleanness, and does not come to observe it on occasion of its day, so as to bring an acceptable offering before Yah, and to eat and to drink before Yah on the day of its festival, that man who is clean and close at hand shall be cut off: because he offered not the oblation of Yah in its appointed season, he shall take the guilt upon himself.
  10. Let the children of Yahdaim come and observe the Passover on the day of its fixed time, on the fourteenth day of the first month, between the evenings, from the third part of the day to the third part of the night, for two portions of the day are given to the light, and a third part to the evening.
  11. This is that which Yah Commanded you that you should observe it between the evenings.
  12. And it is not permissible to slay it during any period of the light, but during the period bordering on the evening, and let them eat it at the time of the evening, until the third part of the night, and whatever is left over of all its flesh from the third part of the night and onwards, let them burn it with fire.
  13. And they shall not cook it with water, nor shall they eat it raw, but roast on the fire: they shall eat it with diligence, its head with the inwards thereof and its feet they shall roast with fire, and not break any bone thereof; for of the children of Yahdaim no bone shall be crushed.
  14. For this reason Yah commanded the children of Yahdaim to observe the Passover on the day of its fixed time, and they shall not break a bone thereof; for it is a festival day, and a day commanded, and there may be no passing over from day to day, and month to month, but on the day of its festival let it be observed.
  15. And do you command the children of Yahdaim to observe the Passover throughout their days, every year, once a year on the day of its fixed time, and it shall come for a memorial well pleasing before Yah, and no plague shall come upon them to slay or to strike in that year in which they celebrate the Passover in its season in every respect according to His command.
  16. And they shall not eat it outside the Sanctuary of Yah, but before the Sanctuary of Yah and all the people of the congregation of Yahdaim shall celebrate it in its appointed season.
  17. And every man who has come upon its day shall eat it in the Sanctuary of your Almighty before Yah from twenty years old and upward; for thus is it written and ordained that they should eat it in the Sanctuary of Yah.
  18. And when the children of Yahdaim come into the land which they are to possess, into the land of Canaan, and set up the Tabernacle of Yah in the midst of the land in one of their tribes until the Sanctuary of Yah has been built in the land, let them come and celebrate the Passover in the midst of the Tabernacle of Yah, and let them slay it before Yah from year to year.
  19. And in the days when the house has been built in the Name of Yah in the land of their inheritance, they shall go there and slay the Passover in the evening, at sunset, at the third part of the day.
  20. And they shall offer its blood on the threshold of the Altar, and shall place its fat on the fire which is upon the Altar, and they shall eat its flesh roasted with fire in the court of the House which has been sanctified in the Name of Yah.
  21. And they may not celebrate the Passover in their cities, nor in any place save before shall the Tabernacle of Yah, or before His House where His Name has dwelt; and they not go astray from Yah.
  22. And do you, Moses, command the children of Yahdaim to observe the ordinances of the Passover, as it was commanded unto you; declare you unto them every year and the day of its days, and the Festival of Unleavened Bread, that they should eat unleavened bread seven days, (and) that they should observe its festival, and that they bring an oblation every day during those seven days before Yah on the Altar of your Almighty.
  23. For you celebrated this festival with haste when you went forth from Egypt till you entered into the wilderness of Shur; for on the shore of the sea you completed it.

Laws regarding the Jubilees, 1-5, and the Sabbath, 6-13.
[Chapter 50]
  1. And after this Law I made known to you the days of the Sabbaths in the desert of Sin[ai], which is between Elim and Sinai.
  2. And I told you of the Sabbaths of the land on Mount Sinai, and I told you of the jubilee years in the Sabbaths of years: but the year thereof have I not told you till you enter the land which you are to possess.
  3. And the land also shall keep its Sabbaths while they dwell upon it, and they shall know the jubilee year.
  4. Wherefore I have ordained for you the year-weeks and the years and the jubilees: there are forty-nine jubilees from the days of Adam until this day, [2410 A.M.] and one week and two years: and there are yet forty years to come (lit. ‘distant’) for learning the [2450 A.M.] Commandments of Yah, until they pass over into the land of Canaan, crossing the Jordan to the west.
  5. And the jubilees shall pass by, until Yahdaim is cleansed from all guilt of fornication, and uncleanness, and pollution, and wickedness, and error, and dwells with confidence in all the land, and there shall be no more a Satan or any evil one, and the land shall be clean from that time for evermore.
  6. And behold the Commandment regarding the Sabbaths -I have written (them) down for you- and all the judgments of its Laws.
  7. Six days shall you labor, but on the seventh day is the Sabbath of Yah your Almighty. In it you shall do no manner of work, you and your sons, and your men- servants and your maid-servants, and all your cattle and the sojourner also who is with you.
  8. And the man that does any work on it shall die: whoever desecrates that day, whoever lies with (his) wife, or whoever says he will do something on it, that he will set out on a journey thereon in regard to any buying or selling: and whoever draws water thereon which he had not prepared for himself on the sixth day, and whoever takes up any burden to carry it out of his tent or out of his house shall die.
  9. You shall do no work whatever on the Sabbath day save what you have prepared for yourselves on the sixth day, so as to eat, and drink, and rest, and keep Sabbath from all work on that day, and to bless Yah your Almighty, who has given you a day of festival and an honorable day: and a day of the kingdom for all Yahdaim is this day among their days forever.
  10. For great is the honor which Yah has given to Yahdaim that they should eat and drink and be satisfied on this Festival Day, and rest thereon from all labor which belongs to the labor of the children of men save burning frankincense and bringing oblations and sacrifices before Yah for days and for Sabbaths.
  11. This work alone shall be done on the Sabbath-Days in the Sanctuary of Yah your Almighty; that they may atone for Yahdaim with sacrifice continually from day to day for a memorial well-pleasing before Yah, and that He may receive them always from day to day according as you has been commanded.
  12. And every man who does any work thereon, or goes a journey, or tills (his) farm, whether in his house or any other place, and whoever lights a fire, or rides on any beast, or travels by ship on the sea, and whoever strikes or kills anything, or slaughters a beast or a bird, or whoever catches an animal or a bird or a fish, or whoever fasts or makes war on the Sabbaths:
  13. The man who does any of these things on the Sabbath shall die, so that the children of Yahdaim shall observe the Sabbaths according to the Commandments regarding the Sabbaths of the land, as it is written in the Tablets, which He gave into my hands that I should write out for you the Laws of the seasons, and the seasons according to the division of their days.
Herewith is completed the account of the division of the days.
