... that upon the whole, if you thus understand the Abyss, or great Deep, and the breaking open its fountains in this manner, it doth us no service as to the Deluge, and where we expected the greatest supply, there we find none at all. What shall we do then? Whither shall we go to more than seven oceans of water that we still want?. We have been above and below; we have drained the whole middle region, and we have examined the Deeps of Earth; they must want for themselves, they say, if they give us any; and, besides, if the Earth, should disgorge all the water that it ...
82. From the Death of Moses to the Death of Eli [Books]
... did not attack them, but kept themselves quiet within their own walls, Joshua resolved to besiege them; so on the first day of the feast [of the passover], the priests carried the ark round about, with some part of the armed men to be a guard to it. These priests went forward, blowing with their seven trumpets; and exhorted the army to be of good courage, and went round about the city, with the senate following them; and when the priests had only blown with the trumpets, for they did nothing more at all, they returned to the camp. And when they had done this for six days, on the seventh ...
83. From the Death of Saul to the Death of David [Books]
... all the people to him; upon which came to him about six thousand and eight hundred armed men of the tribe of Judah, who bare shields and spears for their weapons, for these had [till now] continued with Saul's son, when the rest of the tribe of Judah had ordained David for their king. There came also seven thousand and one hundred out of the tribe of Simeon. Out of the tribe of Levi came four thousand and seven hundred, having Jehoiada for their leader. After these came Zadok the high priest, with twenty-two captains of his kindred. Out of the tribe of Benjamin the armed men were four thousand; but the rest of the ...
84. Night of the Gods: Disputatio Circularis [Books]
... Tree). The Magnetic Pole further gives occasion for the connexion of the North with the natural Magnet, and thence with all sacred animated Stones with meteorites, the touchstone and beth-Els and thus is stone-worship centered in the Polar Deity. Closely connected with the pole and closely with a former Polestar' by their position and their revolutions, the Seven stars of Ursa Major are shown to have been the originators of the holiness of the inevitable Number Seven. And to this I have been driven, almost against my will, to conjoin a somewhat full discussion of the Cabiric gods. All the Atlas-myths, endless and worldwide, are referred to the Axis; which is also made the ...
85. A Possible Reference to King David in Ugaritic Literature [Journals] [SIS Review]
... heroes and most famous kings of Israel; ally of Hiram of Tyre (II Sam. 5:11). David, a favourite and servant of God, was noted for his beauty, nobility and generosity. David wears an ephod and dances before the Lord (II Sam. 6: 14). David rules from Hebron for seven years (II Sam. 5:5 ). David ruler of all Israel; fifty thousand warriors from Zebulun, forty thousand from Asher, attend his coronation in Hebron (I Chron. 12:33, 36). The Bereavements: "The house of the King was destroyed, The house which had seven brothers, Yea ...
... : Calculated from data provided in M-SEC, p. 196.) Hence if the periods were alternated between 27 and 30 years, the coincidence would remain approximately intact throughout the period involved. It will be noted from the data of Table II that the celebrations in the reigns of Thutmose I, Hatshepsut, and Thutmose III were each just seven days later than the previous occurrence, providing a basis for this interpretation of the significance of the Sed Festival, since the vague year deviates from the true solar year at the rate of one day in four years. While several feasts must be presumed to have occurred for which no references are extant, it would seem that the celebration ...
87. A Celtic Destruction Myth: 'Togail Bruidne Da Derga' [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... would certainly seem to be large swans. Conaire went on to Tara where he was accepted as king of Ireland, and under his rule a golden age began, with foreign trade, abundance of food for animals and men, gentle weather, and social harmony: .. .there were in Conaire's reign great bounties, to wit, seven ships in every June of every year arriving at Inver Colptha, and oak-mast [nuts, i.e . acorns] up to the knees in every autumn, and plenty of fish in the rivers Bush and Boyne in June of each year, and such abundance of good-will that no one slew another in Erin during his reign. ...
88. The Great Flood -- the Myth in Genesis [Books]
... about the same time that the cataclysmal rains descended, refer, very graphically, to the increase' of the waters in all zones except the tropical girdle caused by the flowing-off of the pent-up girdle-tide. In the Book of Jubilees the great watery chaos, is very graphically described: (v . 2q.) And the Lord opened the seven floodgates heaven, and the mouths of the fountains of the great deep, seven in number. (25) And the flood gates began to pour down water from the heaven. . and the fountains of the deep also sent up waters, until the whole world was full of water' (Note 57). The original observer ...
89. On Saturn And The Flood [Journals] [Kronos]
... 7 ) I found confirmed in many ancient sources, in which Saturn is regularly associated with brilliant light; but I was led to this idea first of all by a certain clue contained in the Biblical account of the Deluge. The story as found in the book of Genesis starts with these words: "And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the Flood were upon the earth."(8 ) It is not explained, after seven days of what? Some words seem to be missing here from our text of the Old Testament. It is clear, however, that Isaiah refers to the same seven days in his description of the messianic ...
90. Father Kugler's Falling Star [Journals] [Kronos]
... the natural progression of the heavens over a period of time:(7 ) Nonnos has deliberately devised a highly fantastic picture of extreme confusion among the stars; the author of Sibyls, V, 512ff., on the other hand, has portrayed actual astral changes, as they come about according to the accepted order in the course of seven months, as the effect of a battle. This is, after all, a quite basic distinction There exists between the two works the greatest imaginable contradiction, which leaps to the eyes even before recognition of the unified plan of Sibyls, V, 512ff.(8 ) Before going any further, it will be as well to ...
