LESSON 13.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THOSE BORING "BEGATS"



JASHER 10

1. And Peleg, the son of Eber died in those days, in the forty-eighth year of the life of Abram, son of Terah, and all the days of Peleg were two hundred and thirty-nine years.

2. And when the Lord had scattered the sons of men on account of their sin at the tower, behold they spread froth into many divisions, and all the sons of men were dispersed into the four corners of the earth.

3. And all the families became each according to its language, its land, or its city.

4. And the sons of men built many cities according to their families, in all the places where they went, and throughout the earth where the Lord had scattered them.

19. And the children of Ham were Cush, Mitzraim, Phut, and Canaan according to their generation and cities.

BEGATS

When reading the Bible, the chapters with the ‘begats’ are normally skimmed over, and little importance or notice is given. I know that in my study, it has been difficult in the past to even read them. Yet, a professor in Bible school made us study the historical books of the Old Testament by searching out in each chapter, a spiritual lesson. So, I had to delve into many ‘begats’. There are lessons to learn, there are spiritual truths, there are vital lessons in even the ‘begats’.

In Jasher chapter 10, we find many references to who came from whom. Let’s take a look at these in chapter 10.

From the three sons of Noah came all the nations of the world.

Noah had three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

1. From Ham came all the nations of color, black, yellow, and red.

2. From Japheth came the nations we call white.

3. From Shem came the nations of partial color, olive toned.

Jasher 10:6 "Japheth"

The name means enlargement or encouragement.


SONS OF JAPHETH

1. Gomer (The name means "completion.") Genesis 10, Ezekiel 38:6 He was the progenitor of the Galatians and Phrygians. These people were earlier known as the Gauls and the Celts. Later, they became known as Germans, French, Welsh, Irish, and Britons.

 

Gomer had three sons:

1. Askenaz (Francum, vs. 8) From him came the Gauls, the French people.

2. Riphath (Rephath, vs. 9) From him came the Irish, Celts and Britons.

3. Togarma (Tugarmu, vs. 10) From him came the German peoples.

 

2. Magog - From him came the Scythians and Tartars. These are the peoples of modern Russia that live in the area we know as Moscow. In the study of Bible prophecy, this name will surface often. It is important to know what groups it references.

Ezekiel 38:2 (KJV)

2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

Revelation 20:8 (KJV)

8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

3. Javan - Genesis 10:2-4 He was the progenitor of the Greeks, Italians, Spaniards and Portuguese. He was the father of Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. His name was the early Hebrew name for Greece.

Ezekiel 27:13 (KJV)

13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were thy merchants: they traded the persons of men and vessels of brass in thy market.

4. Medai - He was the progenitor of the ancient Medes and Persians.

5. Tubal - He was the progenitor of the Iberians, Georgians, and Capadocians. Again, reference to his descendants is found in the Bible.

Ezekiel 38:2-3 (KJV)

2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

6. Meshech - From him came the Muscovites, and other tribes that now inhabit Russia. They settled in the mountains of the Caucasus, and in north Armenia.

7. Tiras - He was the progenitor of the Thracians, and Etruscans of Italy

 

 

Jasher 10:15 "Elishah"

Elishah was a son of Javan. He was the first of the Italian people who settled below the mountains of the Alps and the Pyrenees (Job and Shibathmo).

 

Jasher 10:16 "children of Chittim"

These are the Roman tribes of people in Italy. They dwelt in the valley of Canopia by the river Tibreu (Tiber).

 

CHILDREN OF HAM

1. Cush - He was the progenitor of the Ethiopian tribes that inhabited the land south of Egypt and also parts of Arabia.

Isaiah 11:11 (KJV)

11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

2. Mizraim (means "double") was the progenitor of the Egyptians tribes and the ancient Philistines. Egypt is even now called Misr in Arabic.

3. Phut was the progenitor of the Libyans and other tribes of northern Africa. The great Arab tribe, Beni Ali, now extend from Egypt to the Atlantic. The Phoenicians and the Greeks drove these people into the desert and the mountains, where they still remain.

4. Canaan was the progenitor of the peoples of Palestine, Arabia, Tyre and Sidon.

Psalm 105:11 (KJV)

11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:

 

Four men of the family of Ham were the original occupants of four villages in the plain below Dead Sea -

Sodom,
Gomorrah,
Admah,
and Zeboyim.

These four cities were destroyed with Sodom, Gomorrah, Zeboiim, Admah, along with Bela (Zoar). See Genesis 14:1-12, Genesis 19:24-29, Deuteronomy 29:23, Genesis 10:19, Hosea 11:8)

Josephus mentions these ancient cities and says that it was still possible in those days to see remains of the cities.

Jasher 10:28

28. And Seir the son of Hur, son of Hivi, son of Canaan, went and found a valley, opposite to Mount Paran, and he built a city there, and he and his seven sons and his household dwelt there, and he called the city which he built Seir, according to his name; that is the land of Seir unto this day.

 

Ham begat Cush, Cush begat Canaan, Canaan begat Hivi, Hivi begat Hur, and Hur begat Seir. Seir built a city opposite the mountains of Paran. This is the area known in Bible times as Edom, and is now part of Jordan. The city could be the ancient city of Ezion-geber.

 

CHILDREN OF SHEM

1. Elam - He was the progenitor of the Elamites near the Persian gulf. Their nation eventually extended from the Persian Gulf to Assyria, and from the Zagron mts. to the Tigris River. Elamites were at the Pentecostal feast.

Acts 2:9 (KJV)

9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,

2. Assur (Ashur) He was the progenitor of the Assyrians.

3. Arphaxad He was the progenitor of the Israelites, Arabians, Edomites, Moabites, Ammonites, and Ishmaelites.

4. Lud He was the progenitor of the Lidians of Asia Minor, and the Ludim of Chaldea and Persia.

5. Aram He was the progenitor of the Aramaeans, later called the Syrians.

 

Jasher 10:30 "Eber"

From this name, the word "Hebrews" comes.

Jasher 10:34 "Uz"

Uz means "firmness. This was perhaps the city of Bozrah (Genesis 36:33). It was halfway between Petra and the Dead Sea. This was the ancient capital of Edom (not to be identified with Bozrah of Moab). This city was 25 miles southeast of the Dead Sea. It was the home area of Job, before his journey to Egypt, and then finally to Jerusalem.

"Japheth" is from the root word "Yaphah" which means "fair, light colored".

"Ham" is from "chem" which means "dark".

"Shem" is from a word which means, "named, honored one". He was the first born, and then Ham later born, and obviously had darker skin than Shem, was named to indicate the darkness of his complexion. Japheth was finally born, and was so fair, and light skinned compared to Shem and Ham, that he was named to indicate the fairness of his complexion. From these three, and the mixtures of such come all the races, and colors of mankind.

Jasher 10:36 "Bela"

This is the ancient name of Zoar, a city right below the Dead Sea.

Josephus writes Antiq. 1, chapter 9, 4:

"...Now he (Lot) and his daughters fled to a certain small place, encompassed with the fire, and settled in it. It is to this day called Zoar, for that is the word which the Hebrews use for a small thing. There it was that he lived a miserable life, on account of his having no company, and his want of provisions."

In studying Bible history, in studying Bible prophecy, there are references to the names from which nations have come. To know these references, and to identify the peoples that are affected or are active in prophetic revelations to us, we need to understand the ‘begats’ of the Bible and of Jasher.
