71. The Mark Of The Beast [Journals] [Kronos]
... 13:1 states that John saw a wild beast ascending out of the sea. Revelation 17:15 explains that this emerging from the sea means from among the nations. This seems to suggest that the wild beast stands for a political entity. Revelation 13:1 goes on to describe this supposed political entity as having ten horns and seven heads. Revelation 17:12 explains the horn imagery to stand for kings or, in modern parlance, heads of state. Likewise, Revelation 17:10 seems to equate heads as well with kings, or heads of state. But what political entity could have both ten and at the same time seven heads of state? Here ...
72. Heracles and the Planet Mars [Journals] [Aeon]
... temples and sacred towers bear witness to their assimilation to the Cosmic Mountain: Mount of the House', Mount of the Mountains of all Lands, ' Mount of Storms, ' Link between Heaven and Earth, ' and the like. The ziggurat was, properly speaking, a Cosmic Mountain, a symbolic image of the Cosmos; its seven stories represented the seven planetary heavens." (44) Given that Huwawa resides upon the top of the Cedar Mountain- the dwelling-place of the gods and the throne of Ishtar- it would seem to follow that he too was some type of god. Indeed, with very few exceptions, Huwawa is generally identified as a god in ...

(vii, J') Of every clean beast thou shall take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female (3 ) .. .to keep seed alive upon the face of the earth. (vii- 4, J') [And the Lord said] For yet seven days and I will cause it to ...
74. Worlds In Collision And Recent Finds In Archaeology. Ch.17 Supplement (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... . The problem of the time of the Exodus in Egyptian history had never been solved. In the Papyrus Ipuwer and the Naos of El Arish I found descriptions of a natural upheaval very similar, sometimes identical, with the description in the Book of Exodus: following plagues, when the river was blood-coloured, amid a hurricane and darkness of seven days' duration, the pharoah and his host were drowned in a whirlpool at Piha-Kiroth, the same place where the pharaoh of the Exodus was drowned. These parallels compelled me to fix an unorthodox date for the Exodus. Collating the historical texts of following generations for twelve hundred years, I could establish numerous correlations between the histories of ...
75. The Legends of the Jews: Volume II - Joseph [Books]
... marriage, but his father refused to comply with his wish, because he did not consider her a proper wife for one destined to sit upon the throne. The daughter of the Moabite king, he insisted, was a more suitable match for him. But Asenath rejected every proposal of marriage, and avoided all intercourse with men. With seven maidens born the same day as herself, she lived in retirement in a magnificent palace adjoining that of her parents. It happened in the first of the seven years of plenty that Joseph planned to visit the place in which Potiphar resided, and he sent word to him that he would put up with him, at his house. ...
... Viverra), the pig (Sus), the Macaque monkey (Cercopithecus), and others. As we proceed in a south-westerly direction, from Celebes to Amboina and thence to New Guinea, we find the Indian types diminishing in number, and the Australian (? '. e. marsupial forms) increasing. Thus in New Guinea seven species of pouched quadrupeds have been detected, and among them two singular tree-kangaroos ; yet only one species of the whole seven, viz. the flying opossum (Petauris ariel), is common to the Indian archipelago and the main land of Australia. The greater the zoological affinity, therefore, between the latter and the New Guinea fauna ...

... , supplicating God to mete out punishment to Ahasuerus for his desecration of the Temple utensils. On the seventh day of the week, on the Sabbath, when Mordecai after his long fast took food, because fasting is forbidden on the Sabbath day, God heard his prayer and the prayer of the Sanhedrin. (32) He sent down seven Angels of Confusion to put an end to Ahasuerus's pleasure. They were named: Mehuman, Confusion; Biztha, Destruction of the House; Harbonah, Annihilation; Bigtha and Abagtha, the Pressers of the Winepress, for God had resolved to crush the court of Ahasuerus as one presses the juice from grapes in a press; Zetha, ...
78. The Darkness, Part 1 Venus Ch.2 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... disturbance in the rotation of the earth. Terrific hurricanes swept the earth because of the change or reversal of the angular velocity of rotation and because of the sweeping gases, dust, and cinders of the comet. Numerous rabbinical sources describe the calamity of darkness; the material is collated as follows:(1 ) An exceedingly strong wind endured seven days. All the time the land was shrouded in darkness. "On the fourth, fifth, and sixth days, the darkness was so dense that they [the people of Egypt] could not stir from their place." "The darkness was of such a nature that it could not be dispelled by artificial means. The ...
79. The Sun Ages, Prologue Ch.2 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... Roman author, who, in his book Liber memoralis, wrote:(7 ) "Soles fuere quinque" (There were five suns): It is the same belief that Gómara found in the New World. The Mexican Annals of Cuauhtitlan, written in Nahua-Indian (circa 1570) and based on ancient sources, contains the tradition of seven sun epochs. Chicon-Tonatiuh or "the Seven Suns" is the designation for the world cycles or acts in the cosmic drama.(8 ) The Buddhist sacred book of Visuddhi-Magga contains a chapter on "World Cycles."(9 ) "There are three destructions: the destruction by water, the destruction by fire, the destruction ...

... , he informed us, there seems to be "adequate evidence".(10) Let us, temporarily, leave Venus aside. What can be said of Gabriel as the planet Mars? According to Joshua Trachtenberg: "An old tradition, dating back at least to Geonic [or Gaonic] times, had it that there are seven archangels, each of whom is associated with a planet "( 11) "The seven archangels, in particular, were believed to play an important part in the universal order through their association with the planets and the constellations."(12) The same author also wrote that there are different versions as to which archangel was associated ...
