41. Philologos | The Legends of the Jews: Volume IV [Books]
... 8 ) where Kenaz actually found them. The Naphtalites confessed to the same transgression, only they had concealed the books in the tent of Elah, and there they were found by Kenaz. The Gadites acknowledged having led an immoral life, and the sinners of Asher, that they had found, and had hidden under Mount Shechem, the seven golden idols called by the Amorites the holy nymphs the same seven idols which had been made in a miraculous way after the deluge by the seven sinners, Canaan, Put, Shelah, Nimrod, Elath, Diul, and Shuah. (9 ) They were of precious stones from Havilah, which radiated light, making night bright as ...
42. The el-Amarna Letters (Continued) (Ages in Chaos) [Velikovsky]
... Ages in Chaos Volume I: From the Exodus to King Akhnaton CHAPTER SEVEN The el-Amarna Letters (Continued)Immanuel Velikovsky Famine Tribes of the desert, driven by famine, came to Trans-Jordan and crossed the river, only to find the land of Israel in even greater distress and misery than that from which they had fled. The fields in Israel yielded nothing. The meadows were scorched by the sun; only thorns sprang from the barren land. The first forecast of the drought came from Elijah the Tishbite, who said to the king: I KINGS 17:1 .. . there shall not be dew nor rain these years. The heavens breathed heat, the trees ...

... troops of the Hapiru of the land, is dwelling in that city." . . . I had made ready the city of Himush. . . . This tablet of mine I send to my lord from the bank of the Euphrates River. The troops and cattle are well. David took from Hadarezer "a thousand chariots, and seven thousand horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen" (1 Chronicles 18:4 ). We learn that Shamshi-Adad reckons that his son Ishme-Dagan could rely upon having under his command 20,000 men, evidently the 20,000 infantrymen mentioned by the chnonicler. The rallying point of the forces of Hadadezer was at Helam or ...
44. Morning Star* [Journals] [Aeon]
... here. Thus, at the very top, we see the disc of Ra, the sun-god, encircled by the Venerian serpent, beneath which is the figure of the Horus falcon, here identified as Mars, resting above the Djed pillar, symbol of the Axis Mundi, or polar column. Of additional interest is the inclusion of the seven apes, said to represent the spirits of the Duat. Thus our previous equation has now evolved into: Soul of Osiris = Ba = Bennu = Morning Star = Horus = Mars. But how well does Horus, as Mars, fit into the planetary scenario presented above? We have seen that, as viewed from Earth, Mars ...
45. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... me to affect both the revised chronology and the idea of catastrophes. A considerable part of Genesis is given to the recording of the story of Joseph. The basic facts are these: 1. Pharaoh had a dream which was interpreted for him by Joseph as being a fore-warning of a coming famine. Before the famine there were to be seven years of plenty, and then these would die away and the food crops would fail. 2. Joseph was appointed the controller of Egyeven good years and then seven years of famine? Secondly, the building material of those days was stone, and any storehouses that Joseph built were presumably built with this material. What has happened to ...
46. The Saturn Problem [Journals] [SIS Review]
... not explain why the most powerful gods of these societies were not the most obvious choices, the Sun and Moon, in the first place. Nor do they explain the lack of distinction that the ancients made between the main heavenly bodies: Sun and Moon were usually grouped together with Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mars and Mercury as the seven planets', glossing over vast disparities in size and luminosity in a way that seems surprising to us. So why did the god associated with Jupiter achieve such ascendancy in Greece, Rome, Egypt, Babylonia and other civilisations? How could the idea have possibly come about that the god of Saturn was believed to be the retired' ...

... to be no serious warrant for finding indications of any other number of crescentoid elements in the basic design of the image. An identical formation is found from the parallel tradition of the Maruts. Careful sifting through and comparison of the epithets of these gods as set forth in a scattered fashion through the hymns of the reveals that there were originally seven of them. Their midnight aspect was Rgvedaof seven concentric cows or men as in figure 7 below. The Maruts were sons of Rudra. Figure 8 is a diagram of the essentials of a composite illustration on a Harappan seal of about 4000 years ago. Rudra and the seven Maruts are obviously depicted. The crucial clue is that in ...
... , ON THE ACCOUNT OF HEROD. AFTER WHICH A GREAT TUMULT IS RAISED BY THE MULTITUDE AND HE SENDS THE SOLDIERS OUT UPON THEM, WHO DESTROY ABOUT THREE THOUSAND OF THEM. 1. NOW the necessity which Archelaus was under of taking a journey to Rome was the occasion of new disturbances; for when he had mourned for his father seven days, (1 ) and had given a very expensive funeral feast to the multitude, (which custom is the occasion of poverty to many of the Jews, because they are forced to feast the multitude; for if any one omits it, he is not esteemed a holy person,) he put on a white garment, ...
49. The Legends of the Jews: Volume I - Jacob [Books]
... warned to be on his guard against Laban, Jacob worded his agreement with him regarding his marriage to Rachel with such precision that no room was left for distortion or guile. Jacob said: "I know that the people of this place are knaves, therefore I desire to put the matter very clearly to thee. I will serve thee seven years for Rachel, hence not Leah; for thy daughter, that thou bringest me not some other woman likewise named Rachel; for the younger daughter, that thou exchangest not their names in the meantime." Nothing of all this availed: "It profits not if a villain is cast into a sawmill" --neither force nor gentle ...

... ash heap" of the cosmos. The "Bent Mountain" of the Aztecs illustrates such a scene as this: and it is but one of the many cave mountains into which canopy forms retired and gave birth to polar personalities. Mount Coihuacan was the spot where by a peculiar process the chief of this Chicamoztoc paradise became the father of seven saris in seven caves. Chicamoztoc means seven caves, and was a name for Calhuacan the bent mountain, whose location was in the extreme north and located according to Aztec among the "little ones". There were seven shining ministers of the fire-god Agni, whose seat was in the environs of Meru, the polar Mount of the ...
