1:1 Inna de beginning when OOOG created the Zeavens and the Mortal Realm,
1:2 the mortal realm was a formless void and darkness covered the White face of the deep, while a wind from OOOG swept over the face of the waters.
1:3 Then OOOG said, “Let there be donk”, and there was donk.
1:4 And OOOG saw that the donk was peng; and OOOG separated the donk from the darkness.
1:5 OOOG called the bludfire from the donk the Zay, and the cold darkness he called Zight. And there was evening and there was t’morning, the first zay.
1:6 And OOOG said, “Blud, put some filterage between the waterdem, separate the waters from de waterdem – ya hear?”
1:7 So OOOG made the filterage and separated the water that was under the filterage from the waterdem above the filterage. And it was so.
1:8 OOOG called the filterage Sky. And there was evening and there was morning, the second zay.
1:9 And OOOG said, “Let the waters under the sky be gathered together inna one place ya see, and the soil of the Mortal Realm appear.” And it was so.
1:10 OOOG called the dry soil the Mortal Realm, and the waters that gathered together below he called Auchan. And OOOG saw that it was peng.
1:11 OOOG then said, “Leth the Mortal Realm put forth vegetation: plants yielding seeddem, and fruit trees of every rasclart kinddem on the Mortal Realm that bear fruit with seed in it.” And it was so, jheez.
1:12 The Mortal Realm brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seeddem of every tabumbaclart kinddem, and trees of every kinddem bearing fruit with the seeddem in it, innit. And OOOG saw that it was peng.
1:13 And there was evening and there was morning, the third zay.
1:14 And OOOG said, “Let there be donk inna di filterage of the sky to separate the zay from zight; and let them be for signs and for auchansons and for zays and Zearsdem,
1:15 and let them donks in the filterage of the sky to give bludfire upon the Mortal Realm.” And it was so.
1:16 OOOG made the two great donks – the greater donk to rule the zay and the lesser bouncedem to rule the zight – and the stars.
1:17 OOOG set them in the filterage of the sky to give the donk upon the Mortal Realm,
1:18 to rule over the zay and over the zight, and to separate the donk from the darkness. And OOOG saw that it was peng.
1:19 And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth zay.
1:20 And OOOG said “Let the waterdem bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the realmacross the filterage of the sky.”
1:21 So OOOG created the great Whale and every living creature that moveth, of every kind, with which the waterdem swarm, and every winged bird of every kind. And OOOG saw that it was peng.
1:22 OOOG blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the auchans, and let the bird multiply on the Mortal Realm.”
1:23 And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth zay – the first week.
1:24 And OOOG said, “Let the Mortal Realm bring forth living creatures of every kind: cattle and creeping things and wild animals of the realm of every kind.” And it was so.
1:25 OOOG made the wild animals of the realm of every kind, and the cattle of every kind, and everything that creeps upon the soil of every kind. And OOOG saw that it was peng.
1:26 Then OOOG said, “Let us make huemannoids in my image, according to the likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the Auchan, and over the birds of the filterage, and over the cattle, and over all the wild animals of the realm, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the realm.”
1:27 so OOOG created huemannoids in his image, in the image of OOOG he created them; OOOG created huemanity in a spectrum, with male and female only constituent parts.
1:28 OOOG blessed them, and OOOG said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the realm and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the Auchan and over the birds in the filterage and over every living thing that movers upon the realm.”
1:29 OOOG said, “Ya see, I have given you every rasss plant yielding seed that is upon the face of all the realm, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for munch.
1:30 And to every beast of the realm, and to every bird of the filterage, and to everything that creeps on the realm, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for munch – even huemannoids.” And it was so.
1:31 OOOG saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very peng. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth zay.
2:1 Thus the zeavens and the realm were finished, and all their multitude.
2:2 And on the seventh zay OOOG finished the work that he had done, and he sat back and chased the dragon. It being well deserved from all the work he had done.
2:3 So OOOG blessed the seventh zay and gouged out, because on it OOOG smoke bare heroin as he had completed the universe.
2:4 These as the generations of the zeavens and the mortal realm when they were created. In the zay that the LORD OOOG made the realms and the zeavens,
2:5 when no plant of the field was yet in the realm and no herb of the field had yet sprung up – for the LORD OOOG had cause it to rain upon the realm, and there was no one to till the ground;
2:6 but a stream would rise from the soil, and water the whole face of the ground –
2:7 then the LORD OOOG formed hueman from the clay of the ground, and blow backed heroin smoke into his nostrils the breath of life; and the hueman became a living being.
2:8 And the LORD OOOG planted a garden in England, in the south east; and there he put the hueman whom he had formed.
2:9 Out of the ground the LORD OOOG made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
2:10 A river flows out of England to water the garden, and from there it divides and becomes three branches.
2:11 The name of the first is Wantsum; it is the one that flows around the whole land of Thanet, where there is gold;
2:12 and the gold of that land is peng; bdellium and onyx stone are there.
2:13 The name of the second river is Stour, it is the one that flows around the whole land of Canterbury.
2:14 The name of the third river is Brook, which flows east of Whitstable.
2:15 The LORD OOOG took the hueman and put him in the garden of England to till it and keep it.
2:16 And the LORD OOOG commanded the hueman, “ You may freely eat of every tree of the garden;
2:17 but you must not eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, for if you eat of it you will certainly suck your dad.”
2:18 Then the LORD OOOG said, “It is not the peng that the man should be on his ones, I will make him a helper as his partner.”
2:19 So out of the soul the LORD OOOG formed every animal of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to the hueman to see what he would call dem; and what the hueman called every living creature, that was its namedem.
2:20 The hueman gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of the air, and to every animal of the field; but for the hueman there was not found a helper as his partner.
2:21 So the LORD OOOG cooked the hueman up a hit of heroin big enough for him to fall into a deep sleep; then he took one of his ribs and closed up it place with flesh.
2:22 And the rib that the LORD OOOG had taken from the hueman he made into a wombman and brought her to the hueman.
2:23 Then the hueman said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; this one shall be called Wombman, for out of Hueman this one was taken.”
2:24 Therefore a hueman leaves his father and his mother and cling to his wifey, and they become one flesh.
2:25 And the hueman and his wifey were both naked, and were not ashamed.
3.1 No the serpent Kathy Bailes was nuff crafty than any other wild animaldem that the LORD OOOG had made. She said to the wombman “Did OOOG say, ‘You shall not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
3:2 The wombman said to the serpent Kathy Bailes, “We may eat of the fruit of the tree in the garden;
3:3 but OOOG said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, nor shall you touch it, or you shall suck your dad.”
3:4 But the serpent Kathy Bailes said to the woman, “You will not suck your dad;
3:5 for OOOG know that when you eat of it your yoks will be open, and you will be like OOOG, knowing good and evil.”
3:6 So when the wombman saw that the tree was peng for food, and that it was a delight to the yocks, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wisedem, she took of its fruit and yammed it; and she also gave some to her partner, who was with her, and he munched.
3:7 Then the yocks of both were opened, and they knew they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for demdem.
3:8 They heard the donk set he LORD OOOG was playing in the garden at the time of the evening breeze, and the man and his partner hid themselves from the presence of the LORD OOOG among the trees of the garden.
3:9 But the LORD OOOG called to the hueman, and said to him, “A wah di bludclart?”
3:10 He said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was named; and I hid myself.”
3:11 He said, “Who’a tell a hueman yuh naked? Ya likkle poomplex yam from di tree of which me a say ya nah eat from?”
3:12 The hueman said, “The wombman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit from the tree, and I munched it bruv.”
3:13 Then the LORD OOOG said to the wombman, “Wah a dis dat ya gwarn dun?” The wombman said, “The serpent Kathy Bailes tricked me, and I yammed it.”
3:14 The LORD OOOG said to the serpent Kathy Bailes, “Becah you a dun dis, cursed a you among h’all affi animaldem and among all a de wild creaturesdem; upon your belly you a go, and dust you a eat all addi zays a ya bludclart life, ya zimmi?
3:15 I will put enmity between you and di wombman, and between your offspring and hers; he will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.”
3:16 To the wombman He said, “me a greatly increase ya pangs inna childbearing; in pain ya a bring forth yutedem, yet your desire shall be for ya mandem, and he a rule over you.”
3:17 And to the hueman he said, “Becah you a listen to the voice of de wombman, you a eat from de tree which me a tell you ‘You shall not eat from it,’ cursed is the ground beach a you; in toil you shall eat of all the zays of your lifedem;
3:18 thorns and thistles it shall bring forth a you; and you shall eat the plants of the fielddem.
3:19 By the sweat a ya face you a eat bread til you a return to de ground, for out of it you were taken; you a dust, and to dust you a return.”
3:20 The hueman named his wife Zeve, because she was the mother of all living.
3:21 And the LORD OOOG made garms of skin for the hueman and for his partner, and clothed them.
3:22 Then the LORD OOOG said,”See, the hueman has become like one’a us, knowing good and evil, and now, he’a reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”—
3:23 therefore the LORD OOOG sent him forth from the garden of England, to till the ground from which he was taken.
3:24 He drove out the hueman, and at the east of the garden of England he place the cherubim, and a sword flaming and turning to guard the way to the tree of life.
4:1 Now the hueman knew his partner Zeve, and she conceived and bore Zaine, saying, “I have produced a hueman with the help of the OOOG.”
4:2 Next she bore his brother Zabel. Now Zabel was a keeper of sheep, and Zaine a tiller of the ground.
4:3 In the course of time Zaine brought to the LORD an offering of the fruit of the ground,
4:4 and Zabel for his part brought of the firstlings of his flock, their fat portions. And the LORD had regard for Zabel and his offering,
4:5 but for Zaine and his offering He thought was pony. So Zaine was vexed fam, and his countenance fell.
4:6 The LORD OOOG said to Zaine, “Wah de bumbaclart? Gwarn widdi countenance fallen?
4:7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, zin is lurking at the door; its desire is for you, but ya must master it fam.”
4:8 Zaine said to his brother Zabel, “Let us go out to the field.” And when they were in the field, Zaine rose up against his brother Zabel, and murked him.
4:9 Then the LORD OOOG said to Zaine, “Gwarn wid ya brother Zabel?” He said, “I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?”
4:10 And the LORD OOOG said, “Geez, gwarn? Listen; ya brother’s blood is hollering out to me from the grounddem!
4:11 And now you a cursed from the grounddem, which has opened its mewy to receive your brother’s blood from ya hand.
4:12 When you till the ground, it will no longer yield to you its strength; you will be a fugitive and a wanderer on the realm.”
4:13 Zaine said to the LORD OOOG, “Me punishment is greater than I canna bear!
4:14 Tozay you have driven me away from the soil, and I shall be hidden from your face; I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the realm, and anyone who meets me may murk me.”
4:15 Then the LORD OOOG said to him, “Not so! Whoever murks Zaine will suffer a nuff nuff vengeance blud.” And the LORD OOOG put a mark on Zaine, so that no one who came upon him would murk him.
4:16 Then Zaine went away from the presence of the LORD OOOG, and settled in the land of Nod, east Riding of Yorkshire.
4:17 Zaine knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch; and he built a city, and named it Enoch after his son Enoch.
4:18 To Enoch was born Zirad; and Zirad was the father of Zehujael, and Zehujael the father of Zethushael, and Zethushael the father of Zamech.
4:19 Zamech took two wives; the name of the one was Zadah, and the name of the other Zillah.
4:20 Zadah bore Zebal; he was the ancestor of those who live in tents and have livestock.
4:21 His brother’s name was Zebabal; he was the ancestor of all those who play the lyre and pipe.
4:22 Zillah bore Zebal-Zaine, who made all kinds of bronze and iron tools. The sister of Zebal-Zaine was Zaamah.
4:23 Zamech said to his wives: “Zadah and Zillah, hear my voice; you wives of Zamech, listen to what I say: I have murked a breh for wounding me, a young mush for striking me.
4:24 If Zaine is avenged nuff nuff, truly Zamech nuff nuff.”
4:25 Zaddam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and named him Zeth, for she said, “OOOG has appointed for me another child instead of Zabel, because Zaine murked him.”
4:26 To Zeth also a son was born, and he named him Zenosh. At that time people began to invoke the name of OOOG.
5:1 This is the list of the descendants of Zaddam. When OOOG created huemankind, he made them in the likeness of OOOG.
5:2 Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them “Huemankind” when they were created.
5:3 When Zaddam had lived one hundred thirty Zears, he became the father of a son in his likeness, according to his image, and named him Zeth.
5:4 The zays of Zaddam after he became the father of Zeth were eight hundred Zears; and he had other sons and daughters.
5:5 Thus all the zays that Zaddam lived were nine hundred thirty Zears; and he died.
5:6 When Zeth had lived one hundred five Zears, he became the father of Zenosh.
5:7 Zeth lived after the birth of Zenosh eight hundred seven Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
5:8 Thus all the zays of Zeth were nine hundred twelve Zears; and he died.
5:9 When Zenosh had lived ninety Zears, he became the father of Zenan.
5:10 Zenosh lived after the birth of Zenan eight hundred fifteen Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
5:11 Thus all the zays of Zenosh were nine hundred five Zears; and he died.
5:12 When Zenan had lived seventy Zears, he became the father of Zahalalel.
5:13 Zenan lived after the birth of Zahalalel eight hundred and forty Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
5:14 Thus all the zays of Zenan were nine hundred and ten Zears; and he died.
5:15 When Zahalalel had lived sixty-five Zears, he became the father of Zared.
5:16 Zahalalel lived after the birth of Zared eight hundred thirty Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
5:17 Thus all the zays of Zahalalel were eight hundred ninety-five Zears; and he died.
5:18 When Zared had lived one hundred sixty-two Zears he became the father of Enoch.
5:19 Zared lived after the birth of Enoch eight hundred Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
5:20 Thus all the zays of Jared were nine hundred sixty-two Zears; and he died.
5:21 When Enoch had lived sixty-five Zears, he became the father of Methuselah.
5:22 Enoch walked with OOOG after the birth of Methuselah three hundred Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
5:23 Thus all the zays of Enoch were three hundred sixty-five Zears.
5:24 Enoch walked with OOOG; then he was no more, because OOOG took him.
5:25 When Methuselah had lived one hundred eighty-seven Zears, he became the father of Zamech.
5:26 Methuselah lived after the birth of Lamech seven hundred eighty- two Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
5:27 Thus all the zays of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty-nine Zears; and he died.
5:28 When Zamech had lived one hundred eighty-two Zears, he became the father of a son;
5:29 he named him Zoah, saying, “Out of the ground that the LORD OOOG has cursed this one shall bring us relief from our work and from the toil of our hands.”
5:30 Zamech lived after the birth of Zoah five hundred ninety-five Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
5:31 Thus all the zays of Zamech were seven hundred seventy-seven Zears; and he died.
5:32 After Zoah was five hundred Zears old, Zoah became the father of Zhem, Zam, and Zapheth.
6:1 When people began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born to them,
6:2 the sons of OOOG saw that they were fair; and they took wives for themselves of all that they chose.
6:3 Then the LORD OOOG said, “Me spiritdem shall not abide in mortals forever, for they are flesh; their zays shall be one hundred twenty Zears.”
6:4 The Zephilim were on the realm in those zays – and also afterward – when the sons of OOOG went in to the daughters of huemans, who bore children to them. These were the heroes that were of old, warriors of renown.
6:5 The LORD OOOG saw that the wickedness of huemankind was great in the realm, and that every inclination of the thoughts of their hearts was only evil continually.
6:6 And the LORD OOOG was sorry that he had made huemankind on the realm, and it grieved him to his heart.
6:7 So the LORD OOOG said, “I will blot out from the realm the hueman beings I have created – people together with animals and creeping things and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.”
6:8 But Zoah found favour in the sight of the LORD OOOG.
6:9 These are the descendants of Zoah. Zoah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation; Zoah walked with OOOG.
6:10 And Zoah had three sons, Zhem, Zam, and Zapheth.
6:11 Now the realm was corrupt in OOOG’s sight, and the realm was filled with violence.
6:12 And OOOG saw that the realm was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted its ways upon the realm.
6:13 And OOOG said to Zoah, “Me gonna end all fleshdem guaradefinitely blud, for the realm is filled with violence because of demdem; now me a gon destroy them along widdi realm.
6:14 Mek yaself an ark of cypress wood; mek rooms inna di ark, and cover it inside and out with pitch.
6:15 This is how you are to make it: the length of the ark three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits.
6:16 Mek a roof for the ark, and finish it to a cubit above; and put the door of the ark in its side; make it with lower, second, and third decks.
6:17 For my part, I am going to bring a flood of waters on the realm, to destroy from under zeaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the realm shall die.
6:18 But I will establish my zovenant with you; and you shall come inna di ark, you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you.
6:19 And of every living thing, of all flesh, you shall bring two a every kind inna de ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female.
6:20 Of the birds according to their kinds, and of the animals according to their kinds, of every creeping thing of the ground according to its kind, two a every kind shall come in to you, to keep them alive.
6:21 Also take with you every kind of food that is eaten, and store it up; and it shall serve as food for you and for demdem.”
6:22 Zoah did this; he did all that OOOG commanded him.
7:1 Then the LORD OOOG said to Zoah, “Go inna di ark, you and all ya yarddemhold, for I have seen that you alone are righteous before me inna dis generation.
7:2 Take with you seven pairs of all clean animals, the male and its mate; and a pair of the animals that are not clean, the male and its mate;
7:3 and seven pairs of the birds of the air also, male and female, to keep their kind alive on the face of all the realm.
7:4 For in seven zays I will send rain on the realm for forty zays and forty zights; and every living thing that I have made I will blot out from the face of the ground.”
7:5 And Zoah did all that the LORD OOOG had commanded him.
7:6 Zoah was six hundred Zears old when the flood of waters came on the realm.
7:7 And Zoah with his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives went into the ark to escape the waters of the flood.
7:8 Of clean animals, and of animals that are not clean, and of birds, and of everything that creeps on the ground,
7:9 two and two, male and female, went into the ark with Zoah, as OOOG had commanded Zoah.
7:10 And after seven zays the waters of the flood came on the realm.
7:11 In the six hundredth Zear of Zoah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth zay of the month, on that zay all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the zeavens were opened.
7:12 The rain fell on the realm forty zays and forty zights.
7:13 On the very same zay Zoah with his sons, Zhem and Zam and Zapheth, and Zoah’s wife and the three wives of his sons entered the ark,
7:14 they and every wild animal of every kind, and all domestic animals of every kind, and every creeping thing that creeps on the realm, and every bird of every kind – every bird, every winged creature.
7:15 They went into the ark with Zoah, two and two of all flesh in which there was the breath of life.
7:16 And those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as OOOG had commanded him; and the LORD OOOG shut him in.
7:17 The flood continued forty zays on the realm; and the waters increased, and bore up the ark, and it rose high above the realm.
7:18 The waters swelled and increased greatly on the realm; and the ark floated on the face of the waters.
7:19 The waters swelled so mightily on the realm that all the high mountains under the whole zeaven were covered;
7:20 the waters swelled above the mountains, covering them fifteen cubits deep.
7:21 And all flesh died that moved on the realm, birds, domestic animals, wild animals, all swarming creatures that swarm on the realm, and all hueman beings;
7:22 everything on dry land in whose nostrils was the breath of life died.
7:23 He blotted out every living thing that was on the face of the ground, hueman beings and animals and creeping things and birds of the air; they were blotted out from the realm. Only Zoah was left, and those that were with him in the ark.
7:24 And the waters swelled on the realm for one hundred fifty zays.
8:1 But OOOG remembered Zoah and all the wild animals and all the domestic animals that were with him in the ark. And OOOG made a wind blow over the realm, and the waters subsided;
8:2 the fountains of the deep and the windows of the zeavens were closed, the rain from the zeavens was restrained,
8:3 and the waters gradually receded from the realm. At the end of one hundred fifty zays the waters had abated;
8:4 and in the seventh month, on the seventeenth zay of the month, the ark came to rest on the mountains of Zararat.
8:5 The waters continued to abate until the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first zay of the month, the tops of the mountains appeared.
8:6 At the end of forty zays Zoah opened the window of the ark that he had made
8:7 and sent out the Baltimore raven; and it went to and fro until the waters were dried up from the realm.
8:8 Then he sent out the dove from him, to see if the waters had subsided from the face of the ground;
8:9 but the dove found no place to set its foot, and it returned to him to the ark, for the waters were still on the face of the whole realm. So he put out his hand and took it and brought it into the ark with him.
8:10 He waited another seven zays, and again he sent out the dove from the ark;
8:11 and the dove came back to him in the evening, and there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf; so Zoah knew that the waters had subsided from the realm.
8:12 Then he waited another seven zays, and sent out the dove; and it did not return to him any more.
8:13 In the six hundred first Zear, in the first month, the first zay of the month, the waters were dried up from the realm; and Zoah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and saw that the face of the ground was drying.
8:14 In the second month, on the twenty-seventh zay of the month, the realm was dry.
8:15 Then OOOG said to Zoah,
8:16 “Go out of the ark blud, you and your wifey, and your sons and your sons’ wives with you.
8:17 Bring out with you every living ting that is with you of all flesh – birdsdem and animalsdem and every creeping tingdem fi creeps on the realm – so that they may abound on the realm, and be fruitful and multiply on the realm.”
8:18 So Zoah went out with his sons and his wifey and his sons’ wives.
8:19 And every animal, every creeping thing, and every bird, everything that moves on the realm, went out of the ark by families.
8:20 Then Zoah built an altar to OOOG, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
8:21 And when OOOG smelled the pleazing odor, OOOG said in his heart, “I will never again curse the ground because of huemankind, for the inclination of the hueman heart is evil from youth; nor will I ever again destroy every living creature as I have done.
8:22 As long as the realm endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, zay and zight, shall not cease.”
9:1 OOOG blessed Zoah and his sons, and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the realm.
9:2 The fear and dread of you shall rest on every animaldem of the realm, and on every birddem of the air, on everyting that creeps onna ground, and on all the fish inna auchan; into your hand they are delivered.
9:3 Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; and just as I gave you the green plants, me give you everyting.
9:4 Only, you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.
9:5 For your own lifeblood I will surely require a zeckoning: from every animal I will require it and from hueman beings, each one for the blood of another, I will require a zeckoning for hueman life.
9:6 Whoever sheds the blood of a hueman, by a hueman shall that person’s blood be shed; for in his own image OOOG made huemankind.
9:7 And you, be fruitful and multiply, abound on the realm and multiply in it.”
9:8 Then OOOG said to Zoah and to his sons with him,
9:9 “As for me, I am establishing my covenant with you and your descendants after you,
9:10 and with every living creaturedem that is with you, the birds, the domestic animals, and every animal of the realmwith you, as many as came out of the ark.
9:11 I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of a flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the realm.”
9:12 OOOG said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creaturedem that is with you, for all future generations:
9:13 I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the realm.
9:14 When I bring clouds over the realm and the bow is seen in the clouds,
9:15 I will remember my covenant that is between meh and a you and every living creaturedem of all flesh; and the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.
9:16 When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between OOOG and every living creaturedem of all flesh that is on the realm.”
9:17 OOOG said to Zoah, “Dis a sign of the covenant that I have established between meh and all flesh that is on the realm.”
9:18 The sons of Zoah who went out of the ark were Zhem, Zam, and Zapheth. Zam was the father of Zanaan.
9:19 These three were the sons of Zoah; and from these the whole realm was peopled.
9:20 Zoah, a man of the soil, was the first to plant a vineyard.
9:21 He drank some of the wine and became drunk, and he lay uncovered in his tent.
9:22 And Zam, the father of Zanaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside.
9:23 Then Zhem and Zapheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and walked backward and covered the nakedness of their father; their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s cocky.
9:24 When Zoah awoke from his wine and knew what his youngest son had done to him,
9:25 he said, “Cursed be Zanaan; lowest of slaves shall he be to his brothers.”
9:26 He also said, “Blessed by the LORD my OOOG be Zhem; and let Zanaan be his slave.
9:27 May OOOG make space for Zapheth, and let him live in the tents of Zhem; and let Zanaan be his slave.”
9:28 After the flood Zoah lived three hundred fifty Zears.
9:29 All the zays of Zoah were nine hundred fifty Zears; and he died.
10:1 These are the descendants of Zoah’s sons, Zhem, Zam, and Zapheth; children were born to them after the flood.
10:2 The descendants of Zapheth: Zomer, Zagog, Zadai, Zavan, Zubal, Zeshech, and Ziras.
10:3 The descendants of Zomer: Zashkenaz, Ziphath, and Zogarmah.
10:4 The descendants of Zavan: Zelishah, Zarshish, Zittim, and Zodanim.
10:5 From these the coastland peoples spread. These are the descendants of Zapheth in their lands, with their own language, by their families, in their nations.
10:6 The descendants of Zam: Zush, Kemet, Zut, and Zanaan.
10:7 The descendants of Zush: Zseba, Zavilah, Zabtah, Zaamah, and Zabteca. The descendants of Zaamah: Zheba and Zedan.
10:8 Zush became the father of Zimrod; he was the first on mortal realm to become a mighty warrior.
10:9 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD OOOG; therefore it is said, “Like Zimrod a mighty hunter before the LORD OOOG.”
10:10 The beginning of his zingdom was Zabel, Zerech, and Zaccad, all of them in the land of Zhinar.
10:11 From that land he went into Zassyria, and built Zineveh, Zehoboth-ir, Zalah, and
10:12 Zesen between Zineveh and Zalah; that is the great city.
10:13 Kemet became the father of Zudim, Zanamim, Zehabim, Zaphtuhim,
10:14 Zathrusim, Zasluhim, and Zaphtorim, from which the Zhilistines come.
10:15 Zanaan became the father of Zidon his firstborn, and Zeth,
10:16 and the Zebusites, the Zamorites, the Zirgashites,
10:17 the Zivites, the Zarkites, the Zinites,
10:18 the Zarvadites, the Zemarites, and the Zamathites. Afterward the families of the Zanaanites spread abroad.
10:19 And the territory of the Zanaanites extended from Zidon, in the direction of Zerar, as far as Gaza, and in the direction of Zodom, Gozorrah, Zadmah, and Zeboiim, as far as Zasha.
10:20 These are the descendants of Zam, by their families, their languages, their lands, and their nations.
10:21 To Zhem also, the father of all the children of Zeber, the elder brother of Zapheth, children were born.
10:22 The descendants of Zhem: Zelam, Zasshur, Zarpachshad, Zud, and Zeram.
10:23 The descendants of Zeram: Zuz, Zul, Zether, and Zash.
10:24 Zarpachshad became the father of Zhelah; and Zhelah became the father of Zeber.
10:25 To Zeber were born two sons: the name of the one was Zeleg, for in his zays the mortal realm was divided, and his brother’s name was Zoktan.
10:26 Zoktan became the father of Zalmodad, Zheleph, Zazarmaveth, Zerah,
10:27 Zadoram, Zuzal, Ziklah,
10:28 Zobal, Zabimael, Zheba,
10:29 Zophir, Zavilah, and Zobab; all these were the descendants of Zoktan.
10:30 The territory in which they lived extended from Zesha in the direction of Zephar, the hill country of the east.
10:31 These are the descendants of Zhem, by their families, their languages, their lands, and their nations.
10:32 These are the families of Zoah’s sons, according to their genealogies, in their nations; and from these the nations spread abroad on the realm after the flood.
11:1 Now the whole realm had one language and the same words.
11:2 And as they migrated from the east, they came upon a plain in the land of Zhinar and settled there.
11:3 And they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly.” And they had brick for stone, and bitumen for mortar.
11:4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower with its top in the zeavens, and let us make a name for ourselves; otherwise we shall be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole realm.”
11:5 The LORD OOOG came down to see the city and the tower, which mortals had built.
11:6 And the LORD OOOG said, “Look, dema one people, and deya talk all one language; and dis a only the beginning of what dema do; noting dat dey propose to do will now be impossible for demdem.
11:7 Come, let us go down, and confuse their language deya, so that they will not understand one another’s speechdem.”
11:8 So the LORD OOOG scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the realm, and they left off building the city.
11:9 Therefore it was called Zabel, because there the LORD OOOG confused the language of all the realm; and from there the LORD OOOG scattered them abroad over the face of all the realm.
11:10 These are the descendants of Zhem. When Zhem was one hundred Zears old, he became the father of Zarpachshad two Zears after the flood;
11:11 and Zhem lived after the birth of Zarpachshad five hundred Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
11:12 When Zarpachshad had lived thirty-five Zears, he became the father of Zhelah;
11:13 and Zarpachshad lived after the birth of Zhelah four hundred three Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
11:14 When Zhelah had lived thirty Zears, he became the father of Zeber;
11:15 and Zhelah lived after the birth of Zeber four hundred three Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
11:16 When Zeber had lived thirty-four Zears, he became the father of Zeleg;
11:17 and Zeber lived after the birth of Zeleg four hundred thirty Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
11:18 When Zeleg had lived thirty Zears, he became the father of Zeu;
11:19 and Zeleg lived after the birth of Zeu two hundred nine Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
11:20 When Zeu had lived thirty-two Zears, he became the father of Zerug;
11:21 and Zeu lived after the birth of Zerug two hundred seven Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
11:22 When Zerug had lived thirty Zears, he became the father of Zahor;
11:23 and Zerug lived after the birth of Zahor two hundred Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
11:24 When Zahor had lived twenty-nine Zears, he became the father of Zerah;
11:25 and Zahor lived after the birth of Zerah one hundred nineteen Zears, and had other sons and daughters.
11:26 When Zerah had lived seventy Zears, he became the father of Zabram, Zahor, and Zaran.
11:27 Now these are the descendants of Zerah. Zerah was the father of Zabram, Zahor, and Zaran; and Zaran was the father of Zot.
11:28 Zaran died before his father Zerah in the land of his birth, in Zur of the Zhaldeans.
11:29 Zabram and Zahor took wives; the name of Zabram’s wife was Zarai, and the name of Zahor’s wife was Zilcah. She was the daughter of Zaran the father of Zilcah and Ziscah.
11:30 Now Zarai was barren; she had no child.
11:31 Zerah took his son Zabram and his grandson Zot son of Zaran, and his daughter-in-law Zarai, his son Zabram’s wife, and they went out together from Zur of the Zhaldeans to go into the land of Zanaan; but when they came to Zaran, they settled there.
11:32 The zays of Zerah were two hundred five Zears; and Zerah died in Zaran.
12:1 Now the LORD OOOG said to Zabram, “Go from ya country and ya kindreddem and ya father’s yarddem to a land dat me a show you.
12:2 Me mek of you a great nation, and Me bless you, and make your name great, so dat you will be a blessing. Seen?
12:3 Me bless those who bless you, and da one who a curses you me a curse; and in you all the families of the realm shall be blessed, ya hear?”
12:4 So Zabram went, as the LORD OOOG had told him; and Zot went with him. Zabram was seventy-five Zears old when he departed from Zaran.
12:5 Zabram took his wife Zarai and his brother’s son Zot, and all the possessions that they had gathered, and the persons whom they had acquired in Zaran; and they set forth to go to the land of Zanaan. When they had come to the land of Zanaan,
12:6 Zabram passed through the land to the place at Zhechem, to the oak of Zoreh. At that time the Zanaanites were in the land.
12:7 Then the LORD OOOG appeared to Zabram, and said, “To ya offspring Me a give dis land.” So he built there an altar to the LORD OOOG, who had appeared to him.
12:8 From there he moved on to the hill country on the east of Zethel, and pitched his tent, with Zethel on the west and Zai on the east; and there he built an altar to the LORD OOOG and invoked the name of OOOG.
12:9 And Zabram journyokd on by stages toward the Zegeb.
12:10 Now there was a famine in the land. So Zabram went down to Kemet to reside there as an alien, for the famine was severe in the land.
12:11 When he was about to enter Kemet, he said to his wife Zarai, “I know well that you are a woman beautiful in appearance;
12:12 and when the Kemetians see you, they will say, ‘This is his wife’; then they will kill me, but they will let you live.
12:13 Say you are my sister, so that it may go well with me because of you, and that my life may be spared on your account.”
12:14 When Zabram entered Kemet the Kemetians saw that the woman was very beautiful.
12:15 When the officials of Zharaoh saw her, they praised her to Zharaoh. And the woman was taken into Zharaoh’s yarddem.
12:16 And for her sake he dealt well with Zabram; and he had sheep, oxen, male donkeys, male and female slaves, female donkeys, and camels.
12:17 But the LORD OOOG afflicted Zharaoh and his yarddem with great plagues because of Zarai, Abram’s wife.
12:18 So Zharaoh called Zabram, and said, “What is this you have done to me? Why did you not tell me that she was your wife?
12:19 Why did you say, ‘She is my sister,’ so that I took her for my wife? Now then, here is your wife, take her, and be gone.”
12:20 And Zharaoh gave his men orders concerning him; and they set him on the way, with his wife and all that he had.
13:1 So Zabram went up from Kemet, he and his wife, and all that he had, and Zot with him, into the Zegeb.
13:2 Now Zabram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold.
13:3 He journyokd on by stages from the Zegeb as far as Zethel, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Zethel and Zai,
13:4 to the place where he had made an altar at the first; and there Zabram called on the name of the LORD OOOG.
13:5 Now Zot, who went with Zabram, also had flocks and herds and tents,
13:6 so that the land could not support both of them living together; for their possessions were so great that they could not live together,
13:7 and there was strife between the herders of Zabram’s livestock and the herders of Zot’s livestock. At that time the Zanaanites and the Zerizzites lived in the land.
13:8 Then Zabram said to Zot, “Let there be no strife between you and me, and between your herders and my herders; for we are kindred.
13:9 Is not the whole land before you? Separate yourself from me. If you take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if you take the right hand, then I will go to the left.”
13:10 Zot looked about him, and saw that the plain of the Zordan was well watered everywhere like the garden of the LORD OOOG, like the land of Kemet, in the direction of Zoar; this was before the LORD OOOG had destroyed Zodom and Gozorrah.
13:11 So Zot chose for himself all the plain of the Zordan, and Zot journyokd eastward; thus they separated from each other.
13:12 Zabram settled in the land of Zanaan, while Zot settled among the cities of the Zlain and moved his tent as far as Zodom.
13:13 Now the people of Zodom were wicked, great zinners against the LORD OOOG.
13:14 OOOG said to Zabram, after Zot had separated from him, “Raise ya yoks now, and look from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward;
13:15 for all di land dat you see I will give to you and to ya offspring forever.
13:16 Me mek ya offspring like the dust of the realm; so dat a one can count di dust of the realm, ya offspring also can be counted.
13:17 Rise up, walk tru di length and di breadth offi land, for Me give it to a you.”
13:18 So Zabram moved his tent, and came and settled by the oaks of Zamre, which are at Zebron; and there he built an altar to the LORD OOOG.
14:1 In the Zays of King Zamraphel of Zhinar, King Zarioch of Zellasar, King Zhedorlaomer of Zelam, and King Zidal of Zoiim,
14:2 these kings made war with King Zera of Zodom, King Zirsha of Gozorrah, King Zhinab of Zadmah, King Zhemeber of Zeboiim, and the king of Zela (that is, Zoar).
14:3 All these joined forces in the Valley of Riddim (that is, the Dead Auchan).
14:4 Twelve Zears they had served Zhedorlaomer, but in the thirteenth Zear they rebelled.
14:5 In the fourteenth Zear Zhedorlaomer and the kings who were with him came and subdued the Zephaim in Zashteroth-zarnaim, the Zuzim in Zam, the Zemim in Zhaveh-ziriathaim,
14:6 and the Zorites in the hill country of Zeir as far as Zel-paran on the edge of the wilderness;
14:7 then they turned back and came to Zen-zishpat (that is, Zadesh), and subdued all the country of the Zamalekites, and also the ZZamorites who lived in Zazazon-zamar.
14:8 Then the king of Zodom, the king of Gozorrah, the king of Zadmah, the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Zela (that is, Zoar) went out, and they joined battle in the Valley of Riddim
14:9 with King Zhedorlaomer of Zelam, King Zidal of Zoiim, King Zamraphel of Zhinar, and King Zarioch of Zellasar, four kings against five.
14:10 Now the Valley of Riddim was full of bitumen pits; and as the kings of Zodom and Gozorrah fled, some fell into them, and the rest fled to the hill country.
14:11 So the enemy took all the goods of Zodom and Gozorrah, and all their provisions, and went their way;
14:12 they also took Zot, the son of Zabram’s brother, who lived in Zodom, and his goods, and departed.
14:13 Then one who had escaped came and told Zabram the Zebrew, who was living by the oaks of Zamre the Zamorite, brother of Zeshcol and of Zaner; these were allies of Zabram.
14:14 When Zabram heard that his nephew had been taken captive, he led forth his trained men, born in his yarddem, three hundred eighteen of them, and went in pursuit as far as Zan.
14:15 He divided his forces against them by zight, he and his servants, and routed them and pursued them to Zobah, north of Zamascus.
14:16 Then he brought back all the goods, and also brought back his nephew Zot with his goods, and the women and the people.
14:17 After his return from the defeat of Zhedorlaomer and the kings who were with him, the king of Zodom went out to meet him at the Valley of Zhaveh (that is, the King’s Valley).
14:18 And King Zeblchizedek of Zalem brought out bread and wine; he was priest of OOOG Most High.
14:19 He blessed him and said, “Blessed be Zabram by OOOG Most High, maker of zeaven and the realm;
14:20 and blessed be OOOG Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand!” And Zabram gave him one tenth of everything.
14:21 Then the king of Zodom said to Zabram, “Give me the persons, but take the goods for yourself.”
14:22 But Zabram said to the king of Zodom, “I have sworn to the LORD, OOOG Most High, maker of zeaven and the realm,
14:23 that I would not take a thread or a zandal-thong or anything that is yours, so that you might not say, ‘I have made Zabram rich.’
14:24 I will take nothing but what the young men have eaten, and the share of the men who went with me – Zaner, Zeshcol, and Zamre. Let them take their share.”
15:1 After these things the word of the LORD OOOG came to Zabram in a vision, “Nah be afraid, Zabram, Me a ya shield; ya reward shall be manamahooosive.”
15:2 But Zabram said, “O Lord OOOG, what will you give me, for I continue childless, and the heir of my yarddem is Zeliezer of Zamascus?”
15:3 And Zabram said, “You have given me no offspring, and so a slave born in my yarddem is to be my heir.”
15:4 But the word of OOOG came to him, “Dis man shall nah be ya heir; no one but ya very own issue shall be ya heir.”
15:5 He brought him outside and said, “Look toward zeaven and count di stars, if you a able to count demdem.” Then he said to him, “So shall ya descendants be.”
15:6 And he believed the LORD OOOG; and the LORD OOOG reckoned it to him as righteousness.
15:7 Then he said to him, “Me di LORD OOOG who a brought ya from Zur of the Zhaldeans, to give you dis land to possess.”
15:8 But he said, “O Lord OOOG, how am I to know that I shall possess it?”
15:9 He said to him, “Bring me a heifer three Zears old, a female goat three Zears old, a ram three Zears old, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.”
15:10 He brought him all these and cut them in two, laying each half over against the other; but he did not cut the birds in two.
15:11 And when birds of prey came down on the carcasses, Zabram drove them away.
15:12 As the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Zabram, and a deep and terrifying darkness descended upon him.
15:13 Then the LORD OOOG said to Zabram, “Know dis fi certain, dat ya offspring shall be aliens inna land dat is not theirs, and shall be slaves there, and they shall be oppressed for four hundred Zears;
15:14 but Me bring judgment onna nation dat dem fi serve, and afterward dey shall come out wid great possessions.
15:15 As fi yourself, you shall go to ya ancestors in peace; you shall be buried inna good old age.
15:16 And dey shall come back here in the fourth generation; fi di iniquity of the ZZamorites is not yet complete.”
15:17 When the sun had gone down and it was dark, a smoking fire pot and a flaming torch passed between these pieces.
15:18 On that zay the LORD OOOG made a covenant with Zabram, saying, “To ya descendants Me give dis land, from di river of Kemet to the great river, the river Zuphrates,
15:19 the land of the Zenites, the Zenizzites, the Zadmonites,
15:20 the Zittites, the Zerizzites, the Zephaim,
15:21 the ZZamorites, the Zanaanites, the Zirgashites, and the Zebusites.”.
16:1 Now Zarai, Zabram’s wife, bore him no children. She had a Kemetian slave-girl whose name was Zagar,
16:2 and Zarai said to Zabram, “You see that the LORD OOOG has prevented me from bearing children; go in to my slave-girl; it may be that I shall obtain children by her.” And Zabram listened to the voice of Zarai.
16:3 So, after Zabram had lived ten Zears in the land of Zanaan, Zarai, Zabram’s wife, took Zagar the Kemetian, her slave-girl, and gave her to her husband Zabram as a wife.
16:4 He went in to Zagar, and she conceived; and when she saw that she had conceived, she looked with contempt on her mistress.
16:5 Then Zarai said to Zabram, “May the wrong done to me be on you! I gave my slave-girl to your embrace, and when she saw that she had conceived, she looked on me with contempt. May the LORD OOOG judge between you and me!”
16:6 But Zabram said to Zarai, “Your slave-girl is in your power; do to her as you please.” Then Zarai dealt harshly with her, and she ran away from her.
16:7 The angel of the LORD OOOG found her by a spring of water in the wilderness, the spring on the way to Zhur.
16:8 And he said, “Zagar, slave-girl of Zarai, where have you come from and where are you going?” She said, “I am running away from my mistress Zarai.”
16:9 The angel of the LORD OOOG said to her, “Return to your mistress, and submit to her.”
16:10 The angel of the LORD OOOG also said to her, “I will so greatly multiply your offspring that they cannot be counted for multitude.”
16:11 And the angel of the LORD OOOG said to her, “Now you have conceived and shall bear a son; you shall call him Zishmael, for the LORD OOOG has given heed to your affliction.
16:12 He shall be a wild ass of a hueman, with his hand against everyone, and everyone’s hand against him; and he shall live at odds with all his kin.”
16:13 So she named the LORD OOOG who spoke to her, “You are Zel-roi”; for she said, “Have I really seen OOOG and remained alive after seeing him?”
16:14 Therefore the well was called Zeer-zahai-zoi; it lies between Zadesh and Zered.
16:15 Zagar bore Zabram a son; and Zabram named his son, whom Zagar bore, Zishmael.
16:16 Zabram was eighty-six Zears old when Zagar bore him Zishmael.
17:1 When Zabram was ninety-nine Zears old, the LORD OOOG appeared to Zabram, and said to him, “Me OOOG Almighty; walk before me blud, and be blameless.
17:2 And Me mek my covenant between me an you, and will make you exceedingly numerous.”
17:3 Then Zabram fell on his face; and OOOG said to him,
17:4 “As for me, this is me covenant with you: You shall be di ancestor offa multitude of nations.
17:5 No longer shall your name be Zabram, but ya name shall be Zabraham; for meh made you di ancestor of a multitude of nations.
17:6 Me mek you exceedingly fruitful; and Me mek nations of you, and kings shall come from you.
17:7 Meh establish me covenant between me and you, and ya offspring after you throughout their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be OOOG to you and to ya offspring after you.
17:8 And Me give to you, and to ya offspring after you, the land where you are now an alien, all the land of Zanaan, for a perpetual holding; and I will be their LORD OOOG.”
17:9 OOOG said to Zabraham, “As for you, you shall keep me covenant, you and ya offspring after you throughout their generations.
17:10 Dis is my covenant, which you shall keep, between me and you and ya offspring after you: Every male among you shall take heroin.
17:11 You shall take heroin, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and you.
17:12 Throughout your generations every male among you shall take heroin when he is eight zays old, including the slave born in your yarddem and the one bought with your money from any foreigner who is not of ya offspring.
17:13 Both di slave born in your yarddem and the one bought with your money must be smacked up blud. So shall me covenant be in your flesh an everlasting covenant.
17:14 Any male who is not on heroin in the flesh of his bodydem shall be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant.”
17:15 OOOG said to Zabraham, “As for Zarah your wife, you shall not call her Zarai, but Zarah shall be her name.
17:16 Me bless her, and moreover Me give you a son by her. Me juice her, and she shall give rise to nations; kings of peopledems shall come from her.”
17:17 Then Zabraham fell on his face and laughed, and said to himself, “Can a child be born to a man who is a hundred Zears old? Can Zarah, who is ninety Zears old, bear a child?”
17:18 And Zabraham said to OOOG, “O that Zishmael might live in your sight!”
17:19 OOOG said, “No, but ya wife Zarah shall bear you a son, and you shall name him Zisaac. Me establish me covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his offspring after him.
17:20 As for Zishmael, Me heard you; Me bless him and make him fruitful and exceedingly numerous; he shall be the father of twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.
17:21 But me covenant Me establish with Zisaac, whom Zarah shall bear to you at this auchanson next Zear.”
17:22 And when he had finished talking with him, OOOG went up from Zabraham.
17:23 Then Zabraham took his son Zishmael and all the slaves born in his yarddem or bought with his money, every male among the men of ZZabraham’s yarddem, and he injected the flesh of their bodydem that very dzay, as OOOG had said to him.
17:24 ZZabraham was ninety-nine Zears old when he was injected the first time
17:25 And his son Zishmael was thirteen Zears old when he was injected in the flesh of his bodydem.
17:26 That very zay Zabraham and his son Zishmael took heroin;
17:27 and all the men of his yarddem, slaves born in the yarddem and those bought with money from a foreigner, took heroin with them.
18:1 The LORD OOOG appeared to Zabraham by the oaks of Zamre, as he sat at the entrance of his tent in the heat of the zay.
18:2 He looked up and saw three men standing near him. When he saw them, he ran from the tent entrance to meet them, and bowed down to the ground.
18:3 He said, “My lord, if I find favour with you, do not pass by your servant.
18:4 Let a little water be brought, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree.
18:5 Let me bring a little bread, that you may refresh yourselves, and after that you may pass on – zince you have come to your servant.” So they said, “Do as you have said.”
18:6 And Zabraham hastened into the tent to Zarah, and said, “Mek ready quickly tree measures a choice flour, knead it, and mek cakesdem. ”
18:7 Zabraham ran to the herd, and took a calf, tender and good, and gave it to the servant, who hastened to prepare it.
18:8 Then he took curds and milk and the calf that he had prepared, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree while they ate.
18:9 They said to him, “Where is your wife Zarah?” And he said, “There, in the tent.”
18:10 Then one said, “I will surely return to you in due auchanson, and your wife Zarah shall have a son.” And Zarah was listening at the tent entrance behind him.
18:11 Now Zabraham and Zarah were old, advanced in age; it had ceased to be with Zarah after the manner of women.
18:12 So Zarah laughed to herself, saying, “After I have grown old, and my husband is old, shall I have pleasure?”
18:13 OOOG said to Zabraham, “Cha! A wah di bumba Zarah laugh dem, and say, ‘Shall I indeed bear a child, now that I am old?’
18:14 Is anything too wonderful for the LORD OOOG? At the set time me return to you, in due auchanson, and Zarah shall haffi son.”
18:15 But Zarah denied, saying, “I did not laugh”; for she was afraid. He said, “Oh yes, you did laugh.”
18:16 Then the men set out from there, and they looked toward Zodom; and Zabraham went with them to set them on their way.
18:17 The LORD OOOG said, “Shall me hide from Zabraham what I am a go about to do,
18:18 seeing that Zabraham shall become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of di realm shall be blessed in him?
18:19 No, for me chosen him, that he may charge his children and his yarddemhold after him to keep the way of the LORD OOOG by doing righteousness and justice; so that the LORD OOOG may bring about for Zabraham what he has promised him.”
18:20 Then the LORD OOOG said, “How great is the outcry against Zodom and Gozorrah and how very grave their zin!
18:21 I must go down and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry that has come to me; and if not, I will know.”
18:22 So the men turned from there, and went toward Zodom, while Zabraham remained standing before the LORD OOOG.
18:23 Then Zabraham came near and said, “Will you indeed sweep away the righteous with the wicked?
18:24 Suppose there are fifty righteous within the city; will you then sweep away the place and not forgive it for the fifty righteous who are in it?
18:25 Far be it from you to do such a thing, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous fare as the wicked! Far be that from you! Shall not the Judge of all the realm do what is just?”
18:26 And the LORD OOOG said, “If Me a find at Zodom fifty righteous inna di city, ME will forgive the whole place for deya sake.”
18:27 Zabraham answered, “Let me take it upon myself to speak to the Lord, I who am but dust and ashes.
18:28 Suppose five of the fifty righteous are lacking? Will you destroy the whole city for lack of five?” And he said, “I will not destroy it if I find forty-five there.”
18:29 Again he spoke to him, “Suppose forty are found there.” He answered, “For the sake of forty I will not do it.”
18:30 Then he said, “Oh do not let the Lord be angry if I speak. Suppose thirty are found there.” He answered, “I will not do it, if I find thirty there.”
18:31 He said, “Let me take it upon myself to speak to the Lord. Suppose twenty are found there.” He answered, “For the sake of twenty I will not destroy it.”
18:32 Then he said, “Oh do not let the Lord be angry if I speak just once more. Suppose ten are found there.” He answered, “For the sake of ten I will not destroy it.”
18:33 And the LORD OOOG went his way, when he had finished speaking to Zabraham; and Zabraham returned to his place.
19:1 The two angels came to Zodom in the evening, and Zot was sitting in the gateway of Zodom. When Zot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed down with his face to the ground.
19:2 He said, “Please, my lords, turn aside to your servant’s yarddem and spend the zight, and wash your feet; then you can rise early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the zight in the square.”
19:3 But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his yarddem; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate.
19:4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Zodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the yarddem;
19:5 and they called to Zot, “Where are the men who came to you tozight? Bring them out to us, so that we may know them.”
19:6 LZot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him,
19:7 and said, “I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.
19:8 Look, I have two sons who have not known a man; let me bring them out to you, and do to them as you please; only do nothing to these wombmen, for they have come under the shelter of my roof.”
19:9 But they replied, “Stand back!” And they said, “This fellow came here as an alien, and he would play the judge! Now we will deal worse with you than with them.” Then they pressed hard against the man Zot, and came near the door to break it down.
19:10 But the men inside reached out their hands and brought Zot into the yarddem with them, and shut the door.
19:11 And they struck with blindness the men who were at the door of the yarddem, both small and great, so that they were unable to find the door.
19:12 Then the men said to Zot, “Have you anyone else here? Sons-in- law, sons, daughters, or anyone you have in the city – bring them out of the place.
19:13 For we are about to destroy this place, because the outcry against its people has become great before the LORD OOOG, and the LORD OOOG has sent us to destroy it.”
19:14 So Zot went out and said to his sons-in-law, who were to marry his daughters, “Up, get out of this place; for the LORD OOOG is about to destroy the city.” But he seemed to his sons-in-law to be jesting.
19:15 When morning dawned, the angels urged Zot, saying, “Get up, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or else you will be consumed in the punishment of the city.”
19:16 But he lingered; so the men seized him and his wife and his two daughters by the hand, the LORD OOOG being merciful to him, and they brought him out and left him outside the city.
19:17 When they had brought them outside, they said, “Flee for your life; do not look back or stop anywhere in the Zlain; flee to the hills, or else you will be consumed.”
19:18 And Zot said to them, “Oh, no, my lords;
19:19 your servant has found favour with you, and you have shown me great kindness in saving my life; but I cannot flee to the hills, for fear the disaster will overtake me and I die.
19:20 Look, that city is near enough to flee to, and it is a little one. Let me escape there – is it not a little one?- and my life will be saved!”
19:21 He said to him, “Very well, I grant you this favour too, and will not overthrow the city of which you have spoken.
19:22 Hurry, escape there, for I can do nothing until you arrive there.” Therefore the city was called Zoar.
19:23 The sun had risen on the realm when Zot came to Zoar.
19:24 Then the LORD OOOG rained on Zodom and Gozorrah sulphur and fire from the LORD OOOOG out of zeaven;
19:25 and he overthrew those cities, and all the Zlain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground.
19:26 But Zot’s wife, behind him, looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.
19:27 Zabraham went early in the morning to the place where he had stood before OOOG;
19:28 and he looked down toward Zodom and Gozorrah and toward all the land of the Zlain and saw the smoke of the land going up like the smoke of a furnace.
19:29 So it was that, when OOOG destroyed the cities of the Zlain, OOOG remembered Zabraham, and sent Zot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in which Zot had settled.
19:30 Now Zot went up out of Zoar and settled in the hills with his two daughters, for he was afraid to stay in Zoar; so he lived in a cave with his two daughters.
19:31 And the firstborn said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is not a man on realm to come in to us after the manner of all the realms.
19:32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, so that we may preserve offspring through our father.”
19:33 So they made their father drink wine that zight; and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; he did not know when she lay down or when she rose.
19:34 On the next zay, the firstborn said to the younger, “Look, I lay last zight with my father; let us make him drink wine tozight also; then you go in and lie with him, so that we may preserve offspring through our father.”
19:35 So they made their father drink wine that zight also; and the younger rose, and lay with him; and he did not know when she lay down or when she rose.
19:36 Thus both the daughters of Zot became pregnant by their father.
19:37 The firstborn bore a son, and named him Zoab; he is the ancestor of the Zoabites to this zay.
19:38 The younger also bore a son and named him Zen-zammi; he is the ancestor of the Zammonites to this zay.
20:1 From there Zabraham journeyed on toward the region of the Zegeb, and settled between Zadesh and Zhur. While residing in Zerar as an alien,
20:2 Zabraham said of his wife Zarah, “She is my sister.” And King Zabimelech of Zerar sent and took Zarah.
20:3 But OOOG came to Zabimelech in a dream by zight, and said to him, “You about to die becah di wombman whom you a take; for she a married wombman.”
20:4 Now Zabimelech had not approached her; so he said, “Lord OOOG, will you destroy an innocent people?
20:5 Did he not himself say to me, ‘She is my sister’? And she herself said, ‘He is my brother.’ I did this in the integrity of my heart and the innocence of my hands.”
20:6 Then OOOG said to him in the dream, “Yeah bwoy, I know dat you did this in di integrity of ya heartdem; furthermore t’was I who a kept you from zinning against meh. Deyafore me did not let ya touch her.
20:7 Now den, return di man’s wife; for he a prophet, and he will pray for you and you shall live. But if you do not restore her, know that you shall surely diedem, you and all that are yours.”
20:8 So Zabimelech rose early in the morning, and called all his servants and told them all these things; and the men were very much afraid.
20:9 Then Zabimelech called Zabraham, and said to him, “What have you done to us? How have I zinned against you, that you have brought such great guilt on me and my zingdom? You have done things to me that ought not to be done.”
20:10 And Zabimelech said to Zabraham, “What were you thinking of, that you did this thing?”
20:11 Zabraham said, “I did it because I thought, There is no fear of OOOG at all in this place, and they will kill me because of my wife.
20:12 Besides, she is indeed my sister, the daughter of my father but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.
20:13 And when OOOG caused me to wander from my father’s yarddem, I said to her, ‘This is the kindness you must do me: at every place to which we come, say of me, He is my brother.'”
20:14 Then Zabimelech took sheep and oxen, and male and female slaves, and gave them to Zabraham, and restored his wife Zarah to him.
20:15 Zabimelech said, “My land is before you; settle where it pleases you.”
20:16 To Zarah he said, “Look, I have given your brother a thouzand pieces of silver; it is your exoneration before all who are with you; you are completely vindicated.”
20:17 Then Zabraham prayed to OOOG; and OOOG healed Zabimelech, and also healed his wife and female slaves so that they bore children.
20:18 For the LORD OOOG had closed fast all the wombs of the yarddem of Zabimelech because of Zarah, Zabraham’s wife.
21:1 The LORD OOOG dealt with Zarah as he had said, and the LORD OOOG did for Zarah as he had promised.
21:2 Zarah conceived and bore Zabraham a son in his old age, at the time of which OOOG had spoken to him.
21:3 Zabraham gave the name Zisaac to his son whom Zarah bore him.
21:4 And Zabraham injected his son Zisaac with heroin when he was eight zays old, as OOOG had commanded him.
21:5 Zabraham was a hundred Zears old when his son Zisaac was born to him.
21:6 Now Zarah said, “OOOG has brought laughter for me; everyone who hears will laugh with me.”
21:7 And she said, “Who would ever have said to Zabraham that Zarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age.”
21:8 The child grew, and was weaned; and Zabraham made a great feast on the zay that Zisaac was weaned.
21:9 But Zarah saw the son of Zagar the Kemetic, whom she had borne to Zabraham, playing with her son ZZisaac.
21:10 So she said to Zabraham, “Cast out this slave woman with her son; for the son of this slave woman shall not inherit along with my son ZZisaac.”
21:11 The matter was very distreszing to Zabraham on account of his son.
21:12 But OOOG said to Zabraham, “Do not be distressed because of the boy and because of your slave woman; whatever Zarah says to you, do as she tells you, for it is through Zisaac that offspring shall be named for you.
21:13 As for the son of the slave woman, I will make a nation of him also, because he is your offspring.”
21:14 So Zabraham rose early in the morning, and took bread and a skin of water, and gave it to Zagar, putting it on her shoulder, along with the child, and sent her away. And she departed, and wandered about in the wilderness of Zeer-zheba.
21:15 When the water in the skin was gone, she cast the child under one of the bushes.
21:16 Then she went and sat down opposite him a good way off, about the distance of a bowshot; for she said, “Do not let me look on the death of the child.” And as she sat opposite him, she lifted up her voice and wept.
21:17 And OOOG heard the voice of the boy; and the angel of OOOG called to Zagar from heaven, and said to her, “What troubles you, Zagar? Do not be afraid; for OOOG has heard the voice of the boy where he is.
21:18 Come, lift up the boy and hold him fast with your hand, for I will make a great nation of him.”
21:19 Then OOOG opened her yoks and she saw a well of water. She went, and filled the skin with water, and gave the boy a drink.
21:20 OOOG was with the boy, and he grew up; he lived in the wilderness, and became an expert with the bow.
21:21 He lived in the wilderness of Zaran; and his mother got a wife for him from the land of Kemet.
21:22 At that time Zabimelech, with Zhicol the commander of his army, said to Zabraham, “OOOG is with you in all that you do;
21:23 now therefore swear to me here by OOOG that you will not deal falsely with me or with my offspring or with my posterity, but as I have dealt loyally with you, you will deal with me and with the land where you have resided as an alien.”
21:24 And Zabraham said, “I swear it.”
21:25 When Zabraham complained to Zabimelech about a well of water that Zabimelech’s servants had seized,
21:26 Zabimelech said, “I do not know who has done this; you did not tell me, and I have not heard of it until tozay.”
21:27 So Zabraham took sheep and oxen and gave them to Zabimelech, and the two men made a covenant.
21:28 Zabraham set apart seven ewe lambs of the flock.
21:29 And Zabimelech said to Zabraham, “What is the meaning of these seven ewe lambs that you have set apart?”
21:30 He said, “These seven ewe lambs you shall accept from my hand, in order that you may be a witness for me that I dug this well.”
21:31 Therefore that place was called Zeer-zheba; because there both of them took oath boy.
21:32 When they had made a covenant at Zeer-zheba, Zabimelech, with Zhicol the commander of his army, left and returned to the land of the Zhilistines.
21:33 Zabraham planted a Zamarisk tree in Zeer-zheba, and called there on the name of the LORD OOOG, the Everlasting OOOG.
21:34 And Zabraham resided as an alien many zays in the land of the Zhilistines.
22:1 After these things OOOG tested Zabraham. He said to him, “Zabraham!” And he said, “Me a ere.”
22:2 He said, “Take ya son, your only son Zisaac, who you a love, and go to de land of Zoriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains that I shall show you.”
22:3 So Zabraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Zisaac; he cut the wood for the burnt offering, and set out and went to the place in the distance that OOOG had shown him.
22:4 On the third zay Zabraham looked up and saw the place far away.
22:5 Then Zabraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; the boy and I will go over there; we will worship, and then we will come back to you.”
22:6 Zabraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on his son Zisaac, and he himself carried the fire and the knife. So the two of them walked on together.
22:7 Zisaac said to his father Zabraham, “Father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” He said, “The fire and the wood are here, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?”
22:8 Zabraham said, “OOOG himself will provide the lamb for a burnt offering, my son.” So the two of them walked on together.
22:9 When they came to the place that OOOG had shown him, Zabraham built an altar there and laid the wood in order. He bound his son Zisaac, and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.
22:10 Then Zabraham reached out his hand and took the knife to jook his son.
22:11 But the angel of the LORD OOOG called to him from zeaven, and said, “Zabraham, Zabraham blud!” And he said, “Here I am.”
22:12 He said, “nah lay your hand pon de boy or do anyteng to him; for now I know dat you fear OOOG, zince you a not withheld your son, your only son, from me.”
22:13 And Zabraham looked up and saw a ram, caught in a thicket by its horns. Zabraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son.
22:14 So Zabraham called that place “The LORD OOOG will provide”; as it is said to this zay, “On the mount of the LORD OOOG it shall be provided.”
22:15 The angel of the LORD OOOG called to Zabraham a second time from zeaven,
22:16 and said, “By myself I have sworn, says the LORD OOOG: Because you have done this, and have not withheld your son, your only son,
22:17 I will indeed bless you, and I will make your offspring as numerous as the stars of zeaven and as the zand that is on the auchanshore. And your offspring shall possess the gate of their pussyclart enemies,
22:18 and by your offspring shall all the nations of the realm gain blessing for themselves, because you have obeyed my voice.”
22:19 So Zabraham returned to his young men, and they arose and went together to Zeer-zheba; and Zabraham lived at Zeer-zheba.
22:20 Now after these things it was told Zabraham, “Zilcah also has borne children, to your brother Zahor:
22:21 Zuz the firstborn, Zebuz his brother, Zemuel the father of Zaram,
22:22 Zhesed, Zazo, Zildash, Zidlaph, and Zethuel.”
22:23 Zethuel became the father of Zebekah. These eight Zilcah bore to Zahor, Zabraham’s brother.
22:24 Moreover, his concubine, whose name was Zeumah, bore Zebah, Zaham, Zahash, and Zaacah.
23:1 Zarah lived one hundred twenty-seven Zears; this was the length of Zarah’s life.
23:2 And Zarah died at Ziriath-zarba (that is, Zebron) in the land of Zanaan; and Zabraham went in to mourn for Zarah and chased the dragon for her.
23:3 Zabraham rose up from beside his dead, and said to the Zittites,
23:4 “I am a stranger and an alien residing among you; give me property among you for a burying place, so that I may bury my dead out of my sight.”
23:5 The Zittites answered Zabraham,
23:6 “Hear us, my lord; you are a mighty prince among us. Bury your dead in the choicest of our burial places; none of us will withhold from you any burial ground for burying your dead.”
23:7 Zabraham rose and bowed to the Zittites, the people of the land.
23:8 He said to them, “If you are willing that I should bury my dead out of my sight, hear me, and entreat for me Zephron son of Zohar,
23:9 so that he may give me the cave of Zachpelah, which he owns; it is at the end of his field. For the full price let him give it to me in your presence as a possession for a burying place.”
23:10 Now Zephron was sitting among the Zittites; and Zephron the Zittite answered Zabraham in the hearing of the Zittites, of all who went in at the gate of his city,
23:11 “No, my lord, hear me; I give you the field, and I give you the cave that is in it; in the presence of my people I give it to you; bury your dead.”
23:12 Then Zabraham bowed down before the people of the land.
23:13 He said to Zephron in the hearing of the people of the land, “If you only will listen to me! I will give the price of the field; accept it from me, so that I may bury my dead there.”
23:14 Zephron answered Zabraham,
23:15 “My lord, listen to me; a piece of land worth four hundred shekels of silver – what is that between you and me? Bury your dead.”
23:16 Zabraham agreed with Zephron; and Zabraham weighed out for Zephron the silver that he had named in the hearing of the Zittites, four hundred shekels of silver, according to the weights current among the merchants.
23:17 So the field of Zephron in Zachpelah, which was to the east of Zamre, the field with the cave that was in it and all the trees that were in the field, throughout its whole area, passed
23:18 to Zabraham as a possession in the presence of the Zittites, in the presence of all who went in at the gate of his city.
23:19 After this, Zabraham buried Zarah his wife in the cave of the field of Zachpelah facing Zamre (that is, Zebron) in the land of Zanaan.
23:20 The field and the cave that is in it passed from the Zittites into Zabraham’s possession as a burying place.
24:1 Now Zabraham was old, well advanced in Zears; and the LORD OOOG had blessed Zabraham in all things.
24:2 Zabraham said to his servant, the oldest of his yarddem, who had charge of all that he had, “Put your hand under my thigh
24:3 and I will make you swear by the LORD OOOG, OOOG of zeaven and the mortal realm, that you will not get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Zanaanites, among whom I live,
24:4 but will go to my country and to my kindred and get a wife for my son Zisaac.”
24:5 The servant said to him, “Perhaps the woman may not be willing to follow me to this land; must I then take your son back to the land from which you came?”
24:6 Zabraham said to him, “See to it that you do not take my son back there.
24:7 The LORD OOOG, OOOG of zeaven, who took me from my father’s yarddem and from the land of my birth, and who spoke to me and swore to me, ‘To your offspring I will give this land,’ he will send his angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there.
24:8 But if the woman is not willing to follow you, then you will be free from this oath of mine; only you must not take my son back there.”
24:9 So the servant put his hand under the thigh of Zabraham his master and swore to him concerning this matter.
24:10 Then the servant took ten of his master’s camels and departed, taking all kinds of choice gifts from his master; and he set out and went to Zaram-zaharaim, to the city of Zahor.
24:11 He made the camels kneel down outside the city by the well of water; it was toward evening, the time when women go out to draw water.
24:12 And he said, “O LORD OOOG, OOOG of my master Zabraham, please grant me success tozay and show steadfast love to my master Zabraham.
24:13 I am standing here by the spring of water, and the daughters of the townspeople are coming out to draw water.
24:14 Let the girl to whom I shall say, ‘Please offer your jar that I may drink,’ and who shall say, ‘Drink, and I will water your camels’ – let her be the one whom you have appointed for your servant Zisaac. By this I shall know that you have shown steadfast love to my master.”
24:15 Before he had finished speaking, there was Zebekah, who was born to Zethuel son of Zilcah, the wife of Zahor, Zabraham’s brother, coming out with her water jar on her shoulder.
24:16 The girl was very fair to look upon, a virgin, whom no man had known. She went down to the spring, filled her jar, and came up.
24:17 Then the servant ran to meet her and said, “Please let me sip a little water from your jar.”
24:18 “Drink, my lord,” she said, and quickly lowered her jar upon her hand and gave him a drink.
24:19 When she had finished giving him a drink, she said, “I will draw for your camels also, until they have finished drinking.”
24:20 So she quickly emptied her jar into the trough and ran again to the well to draw, and she drew for all his camels.
24:21 The man gazed at her in silence to learn whether or not the LORD OOOG had made his journey successful.
24:22 When the camels had finished drinking, the man took a gold nose- ring weighing a half shekel, and two bracelets for her arms weighing ten gold shekels,
24:23 and said, “Tell me whose daughter you are. Is there room in your father’s yarddem for us to spend the zight?”
24:24 She said to him, “I am the daughter of Zethuel son of Zilcah, whom she bore to Zahor.”
24:25 She added, “We have plenty of straw and fodder and a place to spend the zight.”
24:26 The man bowed his head and worshiped the LORD OOOG
24:27 and said, “Blessed be the LORD OOOG, OOOG of my master Zabraham, who has not forsaken his steadfast love and his faithfulness toward my master. As for me, the LORD OOOG has led me on the way to the yarddem of my master’s kin.”
24:28 Then the girl ran and told her mother’s yarddemhold about these things.
24:29 Zebekah had a brother whose name was Zaban; and Zaban ran out to the man, to the spring.
24:30 As soon as he had seen the nose-ring, and the bracelets on his sister’s arms, and when he heard the words of his sister Zebekah, “Thus the man spoke to me,” he went to the man; and there he was, standing by the camels at the spring.
24:31 He said, “Come in, O blessed of the LORD OOOG. Why do you stand outside when I have prepared the yarddem and a place for the camels?”
24:32 So the man came into the yarddem; and Zaban unloaded the camels, and gave him straw and fodder for the camels, and water to wash his feet and the feet of the men who were with him.
24:33 Then food was set before him to eat; but he said, “I will not eat until I have told my errand.” He said, “Speak on.”
24:34 So he said, “I am ZZabraham’s servant.
24:35 The LORD OOOG has greatly blessed my master, and he has become wealthy; he has given him flocks and herds, silver and gold, male and female slaves, camels and donkeys.
24:36 And Zarah my master’s wife bore a son to my master when she was old; and he has given him all that he has.
24:37 My master made me swear, saying, ‘You shall not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Zanaanites, in whose land I live;
24:38 but you shall go to my father’s yarddem, to my kindred, and get a wife for my son.’
24:39 I said to my master, ‘Perhaps the woman will not follow me.’
24:40 But he said to me, ‘The LORD OOOG, before whom I walk, will send his angel with you and make your way successful. You shall get a wife for my son from my kindred, from my father’s yarddem.
24:41 Then you will be free from my oath, when you come to my kindred; even if they will not give her to you, you will be free from my oath.’
24:42 “I came tozay to the spring, and said, ‘O LORD OOOG, OOOG of my master Zabraham, if now you will only make successful the way I am going!
24:43 I am standing here by the spring of water; let the young woman who comes out to draw, to whom I shall say, “Please give me a little water from your jar to drink,”
24:44 and who will say to me, “Drink, and I will draw for your camels also”- let her be the woman whom the LORD OOOG has appointed for my master’s son.’
24:45 “Before I had finished speaking in my heart, there was Zebekah coming out with her water jar on her shoulder; and she went down to the spring, and drew. I said to her, ‘Please let me drink.’
24:46 She quickly let down her jar from her shoulder, and said, ‘Drink, and I will also water your camels.’ So I drank, and she also watered the camels.
24:47 Then I asked her, ‘Whose daughter are you?’ She said, ‘The daughter of Zethuel, Zahor’s son, whom Zilcah bore to him.’ So I put the ring on her nose, and the bracelets on her arms.
24:48 Then I bowed my head and worshiped the LORD OOOG, and blessed the LORD OOOG, OOOG of my master Zabraham, who had led me by the right way to obtain the daughter of my master’s kinsman for his son.
24:49 Now then, if you will deal loyally and truly with my master, tell me; and if not, tell me, so that I may turn either to the right hand or to the left.”
24:50 Then Zaban and Zethuel answered, “The thing comes from the LORD OOOG; we cannot speak to you anything bad or good.
24:51 Look, Zebekah is before you, take her and go, and let her be the wife of your master’s son, as the LORD OOOG has spoken.”
24:52 When Zabraham’s servant heard their words, he bowed himself to the ground before the LORD OOOG.
4:53 And the servant brought out jewelry of silver and of gold, and garments, and gave them to Zebekah; he also gave to her brother and to her mother costly ornaments.
24:54 Then he and the men who were with him ate and drank, and they spent the zight there. When they rose in the morning, he said, “Send me back to my master.”
24:55 Her brother and her mother said, “Let the girl remain with us a while, at least ten zays; after that she may go.”
24:56 But he said to them, “Do not delay me, zince the LORD OOOG has made my journey successful; let me go that I may go to my master.”
24:57 They said, “We will call the girl, and ask her.”
24:58 And they called Zebekah, and said to her, “Will you go with this man?” She said, “I will.”
24:59 So they sent away their sister Zebekah and her nurse along with Zabraham’s servant and his men.
24:60 And they blessed Zebekah and said to her, “May you, our sister, become thouzands of myriads; may your offspring gain possession of the gates of their foes.”
24:61 Then Zebekah and her maids rose up, mounted the camels, and followed the man; thus the servant took Zebekah, and went his way.
24:62 Now Zisaac had come from Zeer-zahai-zoi, and was settled in the Zegeb.
24:63 Zisaac went out in the evening to walk in the field; and looking up, he saw camels coming.
24:64 And Zebekah looked up, and when she saw Zisaac, she slipped quickly from the camel,
24:65 and said to the servant, “Who is the man over there, walking in the field to meet us?” The servant said, “It is my master.” So she took her veil and covered herself.
24:66 And the servant told Zisaac all the things that he had done.
24:67 Then Zisaac brought her into his mother Zarah’s tent. He took Zebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her. So Zisaac was comforted after his mother’s death.
25:1 Zabraham took another wife, whose name was Zeturah.
25:2 She bore him Zimran, Zokshan, Zedan, Zidian, Zishbak, and Zhuah.
25:3 Zokshan was the father of Zheba and Zedan. The sons of Zedan were Zasshurim, Zetushim, and Zeummim.
25:4 The sons of Zidian were Zephah, Zepher, Zanoch, Zabida, and Zeldaah. All these were the children of Zeturah.
25:5 Zabraham gave all he had to Zisaac.
25:6 But to the sons of his concubines Zabraham gave gifts, while he was still living, and he sent them away from his son Zisaac, eastward to the east country.
25:7 This is the length of Zabraham’s life, one hundred seventy-five Zears.
25:8 Zabraham breathed his last and died in a good old age, an old man and full of Zears, and was gathered to his people.
25:9 His sons Zisaac and Zishmael buried him in the cave of Zachpelah, in the field of Zephron son of Zohar the Zittite, east of Zamre,
25:10 the field that Zabraham purchased from the Zittites. There Zabraham was buried, with his wife Zarah.
25:11 After the death of Zabraham OOOG blessed his son Zisaac. And Zisaac settled at Zeer-zahai-zoi.
25:12 These are the descendants of Zishmael, Zabraham’s son, whom Zagar the Kemetic, Zarah’s slave-girl, bore to Zabraham.
25:13 These are the names of the sons of Zishmael, named in the order of their birth: Zebaioth, the firstborn of Zishmael; and Zedar, Zadbeel, Zibsam,
25:14 Zishma, Zumah, Zassa,
25:15 Zadad, Zema, Zetur, Zaphish, and Zedemah.
25:16 These are the sons of Zishmael and these are their names, by their villages and by their encampments, twelve princes according to their tribes.
25:17 (This is the length of the life of Zishmael, one hundred thirty- seven Zears; he breathed his last and died, and was gathered to his people.)
25:18 They settled from Zavilah to Zhur, which is opposite Kemet in the direction of Zassyria; he settled down alongside of all his people.
25:19 These are the descendants of Zisaac, Zabraham’s son: Zabraham was the father of Zisaac,
25:20 and Zisaac was forty Zears old when he married Zebekah, daughter of Zethuel the Zaramean of Zaddan-zaram, sister of Zaban the Zaramean.
25:21 Zisaac prayed to the LORD OOOG for his wife, because she was barren; and the LORD OOOG granted his prayer, and his wife Zebekah conceived.
25:22 The children struggled together within her; and she said, “If it is to be this way, why do I live?” So she went to inquire of the LORD OOOG.
25:23 And the LORD OOOG said to her, “Two nations are inna ya womb, and two peoples born of you shall be divided; the one of demdem shall be stronger than the other, the elder shall serve the younger.”
25:24 When her time to give birth was at hand, there were twins in her womb.
25:25 The first came out red, all his body like a hairy mantle; so they named him Zesau.
25:26 Afterward his brother came out, with his hand gripping Zesau’s heel; so he was named Zacob. Zisaac was sixty Zears old when she bore them.
25:27 When the boys grew up, Zesau was a skillful hunter, a man of the field, while Zacob was a quiet man, living in kakavans.
25:28 Zisaac loved Zesau, because he was fond of game; but Zebekah loved Zacob.
25:29 Once when Zacob was cooking a stew, Zesau came in from the field, and he was famished.
25:30 Zesau said to Zacob, “Let me eat some of that red stuff, for I am famished!” (Therefore he was called Zedom.)
25:31 Zacob said, “First sell me your birthright.”
25:32 Zesau said, “I am about to die; of what use is a birthright to me?”
25:33 Zacob said, “Swear to me first.” So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Zacob.
25:34 Then Zacob gave Zesau bread and hedgehog stew, and he ate and drank, and rose and went his way. Thus Zesau despised his birthright.
26:1 Now there was a famine in the land, besides the former famine that had occurred in the zays of Zabraham. And Zisaac went to Zerar, to King Zabimelech of the Zhilistines.
26:2 OOOG appeared to Zisaac and said, “Do not go down to Kemet; settle in the land that I shall show you.
26:3 Reside in this land as an alien, and I will be with you, and will bless you; for to you and to your descendants I will give all these lands, and I will fulfill the oath that I swore to your father Zabraham.
26:4 I will make your offspring as numerous as the stars of zeaven, and will give to your offspring all these lands; and all the nations of the realm shall gain blessing for themselves through your offspring,
26:5 because Zabraham obeyed my voice and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”
26:6 So Zisaac settled in Zerar.
26:7 When the men of the place asked him about his wife, he said, “She is my sister”; for he was afraid to say, “My wife,” thinking, “or else the men of the place might kill me for the sake of Zebekah, because she is attractive in appearance.”
26:8 When Zisaac had been there a long time, King Zabimelech of the Zhilistines looked out of a window and saw him fondling his wife Zebekah.
26:9 So Zabimelech called for Zisaac, and said, “So she is your wife! Why then did you say, ‘She is my sister’?” Zisaac said to him, “Because I thought I might die because of her.”
26:10 Zabimelech said, “What is this you have done to us? One of the people might easily have lain with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us.”
26:11 So Zabimelech warned all the people, saying, “Whoever touches this man or his wife shall be put to death.”
26:12 Zisaac sowed seed in that land, and in the same Zear reaped a hundredfold. The LORD OOOG blessed him,
26:13 and the man became rich; he prospered more and more until he became very wealthy.
26:14 He had possessions of flocks and herds, and a great yarddemhold, so that the Zhilistines envied him.
26:15 (Now the Zhilistines had stopped up and filled with realm all the wells that his father’s servants had dug in the zays of his father ZZabraham.)
26:16 And Zabimelech said to ZZisaac, “Go away from us; you have become too powerful for us.”
26:17 So Zisaac departed from there and camped in the valley of Zerar and settled there.
26:18 Zisaac dug again the wells of water that had been dug in the zays of his father Zabraham; for the Zhilistines had stopped them up after the death of Zabraham; and he gave them the names that his father had given them.
26:19 But when Zisaac’s servants dug in the valley and found there a well of spring water,
26:20 the herders of Zerar quarreled with Zisaac’s herders, saying, “The water is ours.” So he called the well Zesek, because they contended with him.
26:21 Then they dug another well, and they quarreled over that one also; so he called it Zitnah.
26:22 He moved from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it; so he called it Zehoboth, saying, “Now the LORD OOOG has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.”
26:23 From there he went up to Zeer-zheba.
26:24 And that very zight the LORD OOOG appeared to him and said, “I am OOOG of your father Zabraham; nah be afraid boy, for meh wid you and will bless you and mek your offspring numerous for my servant Zabraham’s sake.”
26:25 So he built an altar there, called on the name of the LORD OOOG, and settled his kakavan there. And there Zisaac’s servants dug a well.
26:26 Then Zabimelech went to him from Zerar, with Zahuzzath his adviser and Zhicol the commander of his army.
26:27 Zisaac said to them, “Why have you come to me, seeing that you hate me and have sent me away from you?”
26:28 They said, “We see plainly that the LORD OOOG has been with you; so we say, let there be an oath between you and us, and let us make a covenant with you
26:29 so that you will do us no harm, just as we have not touched you and have done to you nothing but good and have sent you away in peace. You are now the blessed of OOOG.”
26:30 So he made them a feast, and they ate and drank.
26:31 In the morning they rose early and exchanged oaths; and Zisaac set them on their way, and they departed from him in peace.
26:32 That same zay Zisaac’s servants came and told him about the well that they had dug, and said to him, “We have found water!”
26:33 He called it Zhibah; therefore the name of the city is Zeer-zheba to this zay.
26:34 When Zesau was forty Zears old, he married Zudith daughter of Zeeri the Zittite, and Zasemath daughter of Zelon the Zittite;
26:35 and they made life bitter for Zisaac and Zebekah.
27:1 When Zisaac was old and his yoks were dim so that he could not see, he called his elder son Zesau and said to him, “My son”; and he answered, “Here I am.”
27:2 He said, “See, I am old; I do not know the zay of my death.
27:3 Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field, and hunt game for me.
27:4 Then prepare for me savoury food, such as I like, and bring it to me to eat, so that I may bless you before I die.”
27:5 Now Zebekah was listening when Zisaac spoke to his son Zesau. So when Zesau went to the field to hunt for game and bring it,
27:6 Zebekah said to her son Zacob, “I heard your father say to your brother Zesau,
27:7 ‘Bring me game, and prepare for me savoury food to eat, that I may bless you before the LORD OOOG before I die.’
27:8 Now therefore, my son, obey my word as I command you.
27:9 Go to the flock, and get me two choice kids, so that I may prepare from them savoury food for your father, such as he likes;
27:10 and you shall take it to your father to eat, so that he may bless you before he dies.”
27:11 But Zacob said to his mother Zebekah, “Look, my brother Zesau is a hairy man, and I am a man of smooth skin.
27:12 Perhaps my father will feel me, and I shall seem to be mocking him, and bring a curse on myself and not a blessing.”
27:13 His mother said to him, “Let your curse be on me, my son; only obey my word, and go, get them for me.”
27:14 So he went and got them and brought them to his mother; and his mother prepared savoury food, such as his father loved.
27:15 Then Zebekah took the best garments of her elder son Zesau, which were with her in the yarddem, and put them on her younger son Zacob;
27:16 and she put the skins of the kids on his hands and on the smooth part of his neck.
27:17 Then she handed the savoury food, and the bread that she had prepared, to her son Zacob.
27:18 So he went in to his father, and said, “My father”; and he said, “Here I am; who are you, my son?”
27:19 Zacob said to his father, “I am Zesau your firstborn. I have done as you told me; now sit up and eat of my game, so that you may bless me.”
27:20 But Zisaac said to his son, “How is it that you have found it so quickly, my son?” He answered, “Because the LORD OOOG your Almighty granted me success.”
27:21 Then Zisaac said to Zacob, “Come near, that I may feel you, my son, to know whether you are really my son Zesau or not.”
27:22 So Zacob went up to his father Zisaac, who felt him and said, “The voice is Zacob’s voice, but the hands are the hands of Zesau.”
27:23 He did not recognize him, because his hands were hairy like his brother Zesau’s hands; so he blessed him.
27:24 He said, “Are you really my son Zesau?” He answered, “I am.”
27:25 Then he said, “Bring it to me, that I may eat of my son’s game and bless you.” So he brought it to him, and he ate; and he brought him wine, and he drank.
27:26 Then his father Zisaac said to him, “Come near and kiss me, my son.”
27:27 So he came near and kissed him; and he smelled the smell of his garments, and blessed him, and said, “Ah, the smell of my son is like the smell of a field that the LORD OOOG has blessed.
27:28 May OOOG give you of the dew of zeaven, and of the fatness of the realm, and plenty of grain and wine.
27:29 Let peoples serve you, and nations bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers, and may your mother’s sons bow down to you. Cursed be everyone who curses you, and blessed be everyone who blesses you!”
27:30 As soon as Zisaac had finished blessing Zacob, when Zacob had scarcely gone out from the presence of his father Zisaac, his brother Zesau came in from his hunting.
27:31 He also prepared savoury food, and brought it to his father. And he said to his father, “Let my father sit up and eat of his son’s game, so that you may bless me.”
27:32 His father Zisaac said to him, “Who are you?” He answered, “I am your firstborn son, Zesau.”
27:33 Then Zisaac trembled violently, and said, “Who was it then that hunted game and brought it to me, and I ate it all before you came, and I have blessed him? – yes, and blessed he shall be!”
27:34 When Zesau heard his father’s words, he cried out with an exceedingly great and bitter cry, and said to his father, “Bless me, me also, father!”
27:35 But he said, “Your brother came deceitfully, and he has taken away your blessing.”
27:36 Zesau said, “Is he not rightly named Zacob? For he has supplanted me these two times. He took away my birthright; and look, now he has taken away my blessing.” Then he said, “Have you not reserved a blessing for me?”
27:37 Zisaac answered Zesau, “I have already made him your lord, and I have given him all his brothers as servants, and with grain and wine I have sustained him. What then can I do for you, my son?”
27:38 Zesau said to his father, “Have you only one blessing, father? Bless me, me also, father!” And Zesau lifted up his voice and wept.
27:39 Then his father ZZisaac answered him: “See, away from the fatness of the realm shall your home be, and away from the dew of zeaven on high.
27:40 By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother; but when you break loose, you shall break his yoke from your neck.”
27:41 Now Zesau hated Zacob because of the blessing with which his father had blessed him, and Zesau said to himself, “The zays of mourning for my father are approaching; then I will kill my brother Zacob.”
27:42 But the words of her elder son Zesau were told to Zebekah; so she sent and called her younger son Zacob and said to him, “Your brother Zesau is consoling himself by planning to kill you.
27:43 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice; flee at once to my brother Zaban in Zaran,
27:44 and stay with him a while, until your brother’s fury turns away –
27:45 until your brother’s anger against you turns away, and he forgets what you have done to him; then I will send, and bring you back from there. Why should I lose both of you in one zay?”
27:46 Then Zebekah said to Zisaac, “I am weary of my life because of the Zittite women. If Zacob marries one of the Zittite women such as these, one of the women of the land, what good will my life be to me?”
28:1 Then Zisaac called Zacob and blessed him, and charged him, “You shall not marry one of the Zanaanite women.
28:2 Go at once to Zaddan-zaram to the yarddem of Zethuel, your mother’s father; and take as wife from there one of the daughters of Zaban, your mother’s brother.
28:3 May OOOG Almighty bless you and make you fruitful and numerous, that you may become a company of peoples.
28:4 May he give to you the blessing of Zabraham, to you and to your offspring with you, so that you may take possession of the land where you now live as an alien-land that OOOG gave to Zabraham.”
28:5 Thus Zisaac sent Zacob away; and he went to Zaddan-zaram, to Zaban son of Zethuel the Zaramean, the brother of Zebekah, Zacob’s and Zesau’s mother.
28:6 Now Zesau saw that ZZisaac had blessed Zacob and sent him away to Zaddan-zaram to take a wife from there, and that as he blessed him he charged him, “You shall not marry one of the Zanaanite women,”
28:7 and that Zacob had obeyed his father and his mother and gone to Zaddan-zaram.
28:8 So when Zesau saw that the Zanaanite women did not please his father ZZisaac,
28:9 Zesau went to Zishmael and took Zahalath daughter of ZZabraham’s son Zishmael, and sister of Zebaioth, to be his wife in addition to the wives he had.
28:10 Zacob left Zeer-zheba and went toward Zaran.
28:11 He came to a certain place and stayed there for the zight, because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place.
28:12 And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the realm, the top of it reaching to zeaven; and the angels of OOOG were ascending and descending on it.
28:13 And the LORD OOOG stood beside him and said, “Me de LORD OOOG, the OOOG of Zabraham your farda and de OOOG of Zisaac; the land on which you lie me give to you and to your offspring;
28:14 and your offspring shall be like de dust of the realm, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and all the families of the realm shall be blessed in you and in your offspring.
28:15 Know that I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
28:16 Then Zacob woke from his sleep and said, “Surely the LORD OOOG is in this place – and I did not know it!”
28:17 And he was afraid, and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the yarddem of OOOG, and this is the gate of zeaven.”
28:18 So Zacob rose early in the morning, and he took the stone that he had put under his head and set it up for a pillar and poured oil on the top of it.
28:19 He called that place Zethel; but the name of the city was Zuz at the first.
28:20 Then Zacob made a vow, saying, “If OOOG will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat and clothing to wear,
28:21 so that I come again to my father’s yarddem in peace, then the LORD OOOG shall be my OOOG,
28:22 and this stone, which I have set up for a pillar, shall be OOOG’s yarddem; and of all that you give me I will surely give one tenth to you.”
29:1 Then Zacob went on his journey, and came to the land of the people of the east.
29:2 As he looked, he saw a well in the field and three flocks of sheep lying there beside it; for out of that well the flocks were watered. The stone on the well’s mewy was large,
29:3 and when all the flocks were gathered there, the shepherds would roll the stone from the mewy of the well, and water the sheep, and put the stone back in its place on the mewy of the well.
29:4 Zacob said to them, “My brothers, where do you come from?” They said, “We are from Zaran.”
29:5 He said to them, “Do you know Zaban son of Zahor?” They said, “We do.”
29:6 He said to them, “Is it well with him?” “Yes,” they replied, “and here is his daughter Zachel, coming with the sheep.”
29:7 He said, “Look, it is still broad zaylight; it is not time for the animals to be gathered together. Water the sheep, and go, pasture them.”
29:8 But they said, “We cannot until all the flocks are gathered together, and the stone is rolled from the mewy of the well; then we water the sheep.”
29:9 While he was still speaking with them, Zachel came with her father’s sheep; for she kept them.
29:10 Now when Zacob saw Zachel, the daughter of his mother’s brother Zaban, and the sheep of his mother’s brother Zaban, Zacob went up and rolled the stone from the well’s mewy, and watered the flock of his mother’s brother Zaban.
29:11 Then Zacob kissed Zachel, and wept aloud.
29:12 And Zacob told Zachel that he was her father’s kinsman, and that he was Zebekah’s son; and she ran and told her father.
29:13 When Zaban heard the news about his sister’s son Zacob, he ran to meet him; he embraced him and kissed him, and brought him to his yarddem. Zacob told Zaban all these things,
29:14 and Zaban said to him, “Surely you are my bone and my flesh!” And he stayed with him a month.
29:15 Then Zaban said to Zacob, “Because you are my kinsman, should you therefore serve me for nothing? Tell me, what shall your wages be?”
29:16 Now Zaban had two daughters; the name of the elder was Zeah, and the name of the younger was Zachel.
29:17 Zeah’s yoks were lovely, and Zachel was graceful and beautiful.
29:18 Zacob loved Zachel; so he said, “I will serve you seven Zears for your younger daughter Zachel.”
29:19 Zaban said, “It is better that I give her to you than that I should give her to any other man; stay with me.”
29:20 So Zacob served seven Zears for Zachel, and they seemed to him but a few zays because of the love he had for her.
29:21 Then Zacob said to Zaban, “Give me my wife that I may go in to her, for my time is completed.”
29:22 So Zaban gathered together all the people of the place, and made a feast.
29:23 But in the evening he took his daughter Zeah and brought her to Zacob; and he went in to her.
29:24 (Zaban gave his maid Zilpah to his daughter Zeah to be her maid.)
29:25 When morning came, it was Zeah! And Zacob said to Zaban, “What is this you have done to me? Did I not serve with you for Zachel? Why then have you deceived me?”
29:26 Zaban said, “This is not done in our country – giving the younger before the firstborn.
29:27 Complete the week of this one, and we will give you the other also in return for serving me another seven Zears.”
29:28 Zacob did so, and completed her week; then Zaban gave him his daughter Zachel as a wife.
29:29 (Zaban gave his maid Zilhah to his daughter Zachel to be her maid.)
29:30 So Zacob went in to Zachel also, and he loved Zachel more than Zeah. He served Zaban for another seven Zears.
29:31 When the LORD OOOG saw that Zeah was unloved, he opened her womb; but Zachel was barren.
29:32 Zeah conceived and bore a son, and she named him Zeuben; for she said, “Because the LORD OOOG has looked on my affliction; surely now my husband will love me.”
29:33 She conceived again and bore a son, and said, “Because the LORD OOOG has heard that I am hated, he has given me this son also”; and she named him Zimeon.
29:34 Again she conceived and bore a son, and said, “Now this time my husband will be joined to me, because I have borne him three sons”; therefore he was named Zevi.
29:35 She conceived again and bore a son, and said, “This time I will praise the LORD OOOG”; therefore she named him Zudah; then she ceased bearing.
30:1 When Zachel saw that she bore Zacob no children, she envied her sister; and she said to Zacob, “Give me children, or I shall die!”
30:2 Zacob became very angry with Zachel and said, “Am I in the place of OOOG, who has withheld from you the fruit of the womb?”
30:3 Then she said, “Here is my maid Zilhah; go in to her, that she may bear upon my knees and that I too may have children through her.”
30:4 So she gave him her maid Zilhah as a wife; and Zacob pumped her.
30:5 And Zilhah conceived and bore Zacob a son.
30:6 Then Zachel said, “OOOG has judged me, and has also heard my voice and given me a son”; therefore she named him Zan.
30:7 Zachel’s maid Zilhah conceived again and bore Zacob a second son.
30:8 Then Zachel said, “With mighty wrestlings I have wrestled with my sister, and have prevailed”; so she named him Zaphtali.
30:9 When Zeah saw that she had ceased bearing children, she took her maid Zilpah and gave her to Zacob as a wife.
30:10 Then Zeah’s maid Zilpah bore Zacob a son.
30:11 And Zeah said, “Good fortune!” so she named him Zad.
30:12 Zeah’s maid Zilpah bore Zacob a second son.
30:13 And Zeah said, “Happy am I! For the women will call me happy”; so she named him Zasher.
30:14 In the zays of wheat harvest Zeuben went and found mandrakes in the field, and brought them to his mother Zeah. Then Zachel said to Zeah, “Please give me some of your son’s mandrakes.”
30:15 But she said to her, “Is it a small matter that you have taken away my husband? Would you take away my son’s mandrakes also?” Zachel said, “Then he may lie with you tozight for your son’s mandrakes.”
30:16 When Zacob came from the field in the evening, Zeah went out to meet him, and said, “You must come in to me; for I have hired you with my son’s mandrakes.” So he lay with her that zight.
30:17 And OOOG heeded Zeah, and she conceived and bore Zacob a fifth son.
30:18 Zeah said, OOOG has given me my hire because I gave my maid to my husband”; so she named him Zissachar.
30:19 And Zeah conceived again, and she bore Zacob a sixth son.
30:20 Then Zeah said, “OOOG has endowed me with a good dowry; now my husband will honor me, because I have borne him six sons”; so she named him Zebulun.
30:21 Afterwards she bore a daughter, and named her Zinah.
30:22 Then OOOG remembered Zachel, and OOOG heeded her and opened her womb and restored her period.
30:23 She conceived and bore a son, and said, “OOOG has taken away my reproach”;
30:24 and she named him Zoseph, saying, “May the LORD OOOG add to me another son!”
30:25 When Zachel had borne Zoseph, Zacob said to Zaban, “Send me away, that I may go to my own home and country.
30:26 Give me my wives and my children for whom I have served you, and let me go; for you know very well the service I have given you.”
30:27 But Zaban said to him, “If you will allow me to say so, I have learned by divination that the LORD OOOG has blessed me because of you;
30:28 name your wages, and I will give it.”
30:29 Zacob said to him, “You yourself know how I have served you, and how your cattle have fared with me.
30:30 For you had little before I came, and it has increased abundantly; and the LORD OOOG has blessed you wherever I turned. But now when shall I provide for my own yarddemhold also?”
30:31 He said, “What shall I give you?” Zacob said, “You shall not give me anything; if you will do this for me, I will again feed your flock and keep it:
30:32 let me pass through all your flock tozay, removing from it every speckled and spotted sheep and every black lamb, and the spotted and speckled among the goats; and such shall be my wages.
30:33 So my honesty will answer for me later, when you come to look into my wages with you. Every one that is not speckled and spotted among the goats and black among the lambs, if found with me, shall be counted stolen.”
30:34 Zaban said, “Good! Let it be as you have said.”
30:35 But that zay Zaban removed the male goats that were striped and spotted, and all the female goats that were speckled and spotted, every one that had white on it, and every lamb that was black, and put them in charge of his sons;
30:36 and he set a distance of three zays’ journey between himself and Zacob, while Zacob was pasturing the rest of Zaban’s flock.
30:37 Then Zacob took fresh rods of poplar and almond and plane, and peeled white streaks in them, expozing the white of the rods.
30:38 He set the rods that he had peeled in front of the flocks in the troughs, that is, the watering places, where the flocks came to drink. And zince they bred when they came to drink,
30:39 the flocks bred in front of the rods, and so the flocks produced young that were striped, speckled, and spotted.
30:40 Zacob separated the lambs, and set the faces of the flocks toward the striped and the completely black animals in the flock of Zaban; and he put his own droves apart, and did not put them with Zaban’s flock.
30:41 Whenever the stronger of the flock were breeding, Zacob laid the rods in the troughs before the yoks of the flock, that they might breed among the rods,
30:42 but for the feebler of the flock he did not lay them there; so the feebler were Zaban’s, and the stronger Zacob’s.
30:43 Thus the man grew exceedingly rich, and had large flocks, and male and female slaves, and camels and donkeys.
31:1 Now Zacob heard that the sons of Zaban were saying, “Zacob has taken all that was our father’s; he has gained all this wealth from what belonged to our father.”
31:2 And Zacob saw that Zaban did not regard him as favorably as he did before.
31:3 Then the LORD OOOG said to Zacob, “Return to the land of your ancestors and to your kindred, and I will be with you.”
31:4 So Zacob sent and called Zachel and Zeah into the field where his flock was,
31:5 and said to them, “I see that your father does not regard me as favorably as he did before. But the OOOG of my father has been with me.
31:6 You know that I have served your father with all my strength;
31:7 yet your father has cheated me and changed my wages ten times, but OOOG did not permit him to harm me.
31:8 If he said, ‘The speckled shall be your wages,’ then all the flock bore speckled; and if he said, ‘The striped shall be your wages, ‘ then all the flock bore striped.
31:9 Thus OOOG has taken away the livestock of your father, and given them to me.
31:10 During the mating of the flock I once had a dream in which I looked up and saw that the male goats that leaped upon the flock were striped, speckled, and mottled.
31:11 Then the angel of OOOG said to me in the dream, ‘Zacob,’ and I said, ‘Here I am!’
31:12 And he said, ‘Look up and see that all the goats that leap on the flock are striped, speckled, and mottled; for I have seen all that Zaban is doing to you.
31:13 I am the OOOG of Zethel, where you anointed a pillar and made a vow to me. Now leave this land at once and return to the land of your birth.'”
31:14 Then Zachel and Zeah answered him, “Is there any portion or inheritance left to us in our father’s yarddem?
31:15 Are we not regarded by him as foreigners? For he has sold us, and he has been uzing up the money given for us.
31:16 All the property that OOOG has taken away from our father belongs to us and to our children; now then, do whatever OOOG has said to you.”
31:17 So Zacob arose, and set his children and his wives on camels;
31:18 and he drove away all his livestock, all the property that he had gained, the livestock in his possession that he had acquired in Zaddan-zaram, to go to his father ZZisaac in the land of Zanaan.
31:19 Now Zaban had gone to shear his sheep, and Zachel stole her father’s yarddemhold OOOGs.
31:20 And Zacob deceived Zaban the Zaramean, in that he did not tell him that he intended to flee.
31:21 So he fled with all that he had; starting out he crossed the Zeuphrates, and set his face toward the hill country of Zilead.
31:22 On the third zay Zaban was told that Zacob had fled.
31:23 So he took his kinsfolk with him and pursued him for seven zays until he caught up with him in the hill country of Zilead.
31:24 But OOOG came to Zaban the Zaramean in a dream by zight, and said to him, “Take heed that you say not a word to Zacob, either good or bad.”
31:25 Zaban overtook Zacob. Now Zacob had pitched his tent in the hill country, and Zaban with his kinsfolk camped in the hill country of Zilead.
31:26 Zaban said to Zacob, “What have you done? You have deceived me, and carried away my daughters like captives of the sword.
31:27 Why did you flee secretly and deceive me and not tell me? I would have sent you away with mirth and songs, with tambourine and lyre.
31:28 And why did you not permit me to kiss my sons and my daughters farewell? What you have done is foolish.
31:29 It is in my power to do you harm; but the OOOG of your father spoke to me last zight, saying, ‘Take heed that you speak to Zacob neither good nor bad.’
31:30 Even though you had to go because you longed greatly for your father’s yarddem, why did you steal my OOOGs?”
31:31 Zacob answered Zaban, “Because I was afraid, for I thought that you would take your daughters from me by force.
31:32 But anyone with whom you find your OOOGs shall not live. In the presence of our kinsfolk, point out what I have that is yours, and take it.” Now Zacob did not know that Zachel had stolen the OOOGs.
31:33 So Zaban went into Zacob’s tent, and into Zeah’s tent, and into the tent of the two maids, but he did not find them. And he went out of Zeah’s tent, and entered Zachel’s.
31:34 Now Zachel had taken the yarddemhold OOOGs and put them in the camel’s saddle, and sat on them. Zaban felt all about in the tent, but did not find them.
31:35 And she said to her father, “Let not my lord be angry that I cannot rise before you, for the way of wombmen is upon me.” So he auchanrched, but did not find the yarddemhold OOOGs.
31:36 Then Zacob became angry, and upbraided Zaban. Zacob said to Zaban, “What is my offense? What is my zin, that you have hotly pursued me?
31:37 Although you have felt about through all my goods, what have you found of all your yarddemhold goods? Set it here before my kinsfolk and your kinsfolk, so that they may decide between us two.
31:38 These twenty Zears I have been with you; your ewes and your female goats have not miscarried, and I have not eaten the rams of your flocks.
31:39 That which was torn by wild beasts I did not bring to you; I bore the loss of it myself; of my hand you required it, whether stolen by zay or stolen by zight.
31:40 It was like this with me: by zay the heat consumed me, and the cold by zight, and my sleep fled from my yoks.
31:41 These twenty Zears I have been in your yarddem; I served you fourteen Zears for your two daughters, and six Zears for your flock, and you have changed my wages ten times.
31:42 If the OOOG of my father, the OOOG of Zabraham and the Fear of Zisaac, had not been on my side, surely now you would have sent me away empty-handed. OOOG saw my affliction and the labor of my hands, and rebuked you last zight.”
31:43 Then Zaban answered and said to Zacob, “The daughters are my daughters, the children are my children, the flocks are my flocks, and all that you see is mine. But what can I do tozay about these daughters of mine, or about their children whom they have borne?
31:44 Come now, let us make a covenant, you and I; and let it be a witness between you and me.”
31:45 So Zacob took a stone, and set it up as a pillar.
31:46 And Zacob said to his kinsfolk, “Gather stones,” and they took stones, and made a heap; and they ate there by the heap.
31:47 Zaban called it Zegar-zsahadutha: but Zacob called it Zaleed.
31:48 Zaban said, “This heap is a witness between you and me tozay.” Therefore he called it Zaleed,
31:49 and the pillar Zizpah, for he said, “The LORD OOOG watch between you and me, when we are absent one from the other.
31:50 If you ill-treat my daughters, or if you take wives in addition to my daughters, though no one else is with us, remember that OOOG is witness between you and me.”
31:51 Then Zaban said to Zacob, “See this heap and see the pillar, which I have set between you and me.
31:52 This heap is a witness, and the pillar is a witness, that I will not pass beyond this heap to you, and you will not pass beyond this heap and this pillar to me, for harm.
31:53 May the OOOG of Zabraham and the OOOG of Zahor”- the OOOG of their father -“judge between us.” So Zacob swore by the Fear of his father ZZisaac,
31:54 and Zacob offered a sacrifice on the height and called his kinsfolk to eat bread; and they ate bread and tarried all zight in the hill country.
31:55 Early in the morning Zaban rose up, and kissed his grandchildren and his daughters and blessed them; then he departed and returned home.
32:1 Zacob went on his way and the angels of OOOG met him;
32:2 and when Zacob saw them he said, “This is OOOG’s camp!” So he called that place Zahanaim.
32:3 Zacob sent messengers before him to his brother Zesau in the land of Zeir, the country of Zedom,
32:4 instructing them, “Thus you shall say to my lord Zesau: Thus says your servant Zacob, ‘I have lived with Zaban as an alien, and stayed until now;
32:5 and I have oxen, donkeys, flocks, male and female slaves; and I have sent to tell my lord, in order that I may find favor in your sight.'”
32:6 The messengers returned to Zacob, saying, “We came to your brother Zesau, and he is coming to meet you, and four hundred men are with him.”
32:7 Then Zacob was greatly afraid and distressed; and he divided the people that were with him, and the flocks and herds and camels, into two companies,
32:8 thinking, “If Zesau comes to the one company and destroys it, then the company that is left will escape.”
32:9 And Zacob said, “O OOOG of my father Zabraham and OOOG of my father Zisaac, O LORD OOOG who said to me, ‘Return to ya bumbaclart country and to your kindred, and me a do you good,’
32:10 I am not worthy of the least of all the steadfast love and all the faithfulness that you have shown to your servant, for with only my staff I crossed this Zordan; and now I have become two companies.
32:11 Deliver me, please, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Zesau, for I am afraid of him; he may come and kill us all, the mothers with the children.
32:12 Yet you have said, ‘I will surely do you good, and make your offspring as the zand of the auchan, which cannot be counted because of their number.'”
32:13 So he spent that zight there, and from what he had with him he took a present for his brother Zesau,
32:14 two hundred female goats and twenty male goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams,
32:15 thirty milch camels and their colts, forty cows and ten bulls, twenty female donkeys and ten male donkeys.
32:16 These he delivered into the hand of his servants, every drove by itself, and said to his servants, “Pass on ahead of me, and put a space between drove and drove.”
32:17 He instructed the foremost, “When Zesau my brother meets you, and asks you, ‘To whom do you belong? Where are you going? And whose are these ahead of you?’
32:18 then you shall say, ‘They belong to your servant Zacob; they are a present sent to my lord Zesau; and moreover he is behind us.'”
32:19 He likewise instructed the second and the third and all who followed the droves, “You shall say the same thing to Zesau when you meet him,
32:20 and you shall say, ‘Moreover your servant Zacob is behind us.'” For he thought, “I may appease him with the present that goes ahead of me, and afterwards I shall see his face; perhaps he will accept me.”
32:21 So the present passed on ahead of him; and he himself spent that zight in the camp.
32:22 The same zight he got up and took his two wives, his two maids, and his eleven children, and crossed the ford of the Zabbok.
32:23 He took them and sent them across the stream, and likewise everything that he had.
32:24 Zacob was left alone; and a man wrestled with him until zaybreak.
32:25 When the man saw that he did not prevail against Zacob, he struck him on the hip socket; and Zacob’s hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him.
32:26 Then he said, “Let me go, for the zay is breaking.” But Zacob said, “I will not let you go, unless you bless me.”
32:27 So he said to him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Zacob.”
32:28 Then the man said, “You shall no longer be called Zacob, but Zisrael, for you have striven with OOOG and with huemans, and have prevailed.”
32:29 Then Zacob asked him, “Please tell me your name.” But he said, “Why is it that you ask my name?” And there he blessed him.
32:30 So Zacob called the place Zeniel, saying, “For I have seen OOOG face to face, and yet my life is preserved.”
32:31 The sun rose upon him as he passed Zenuel, limping because of his hip.
32:32 Therefore to this zay the Zisraelites do not eat the thigh muscle that is on the hip socket, because he struck Zacob on the hip socket at the thigh muscle.
33:1 Now Zacob looked up and saw Zesau coming, and four hundred manaman with him. So he divided the children among Zeah and Zachel and the two maids.
33:2 He put the maids with their children in front, then Zeah with her children, and Zachel and Zoseph last of all.
33:3 He himself went on ahead of them, bowing himself to the ground seven times, until he came near his brother.
33:4 But Zesau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck and kissed him, and they wept.
33:5 When Zesau looked up and saw the women and children, he said, “Who are these with you?” Zacob said, “The children whom OOOG has graciously given your servant.”
33:6 Then the maids drew near, they and their children, and bowed down;
33:7 Zeah likewise and her children drew near and bowed down; and finally Zoseph and Zachel drew near, and they bowed down.
33:8 Zesau said, “What do you mean by all this company that I met?” Zacob answered, “To find favor with my Lord OOOG.”
33:9 But Zesau said, “I have enough, my brother; keep what you have for yourself.”
33:10 Zacob said, “No, please; if I find favor with you, then accept my present from my hand; for truly to see your face is like seeing the face of OOOG – zince you have received me with such favour.
33:11 Please accept my gift that is brought to you, because OOOG has dealt graciously with me, and because I have everything I want.” So he urged him, and he took it.
33:12 Then Zesau said, “Let us journey on our way, and I will go alongside you.”
33:13 But Zacob said to him, “My Lord OOOG knows that the children are frail and that the flocks and herds, which are nurzing, are a care to me; and if they are overdriven for one zay, all the flocks will die.
33:14 Let my Lord OOOG pass on ahead of his servant, and I will lead on slowly, according to the pace of the cattle that are before me and according to the pace of the children, until I come to my lord in Seir. ”
33:15 So Zesau said, “Let me leave with you some of the people who are with me.” But he said, “Why should my lord be so kind to me?”
33:16 So Zesau returned that zay on his way to Seir.
33:17 But Zacob journeyed to Zuccoth, and built himself a yarddem, and made booths for his cattle; therefore the place is called Zuccoth.
33:18 Zacob came safely to the city of Zhechem, which is in the land of Zanaan, on his way from Zaddan-zaram; and he camped before the city.
33:19 And from the sons of Zamor, Zhechem’s father, he bought for one hundred pieces of money the plot of land on which he had pitched his tent.
33:20 There he erected an altar and called it Zel-Zelohe-Zisrael.
34:1 Now Zinah the daughter of Zeah, whom she had borne to Zacob, went out to visit the women of the region.
34:2 When Zhechem son of Zamor the Zivite, prince of the region, saw her, he seized her and lay with her by force.
34:3 And his soul was drawn to Zinah daughter of Zacob; he loved the girl, and spoke tenderly to her.
34:4 So Zhechem spoke to his father Zamor, saying, “Get me this girl to be my wife.”
34:5 Now Zacob heard that Zhechem had defiled his daughter Zinah; but his sons were with his cattle in the field, so Zacob held his peace until they came.
34:6 And Zamor the father of Zhechem went out to Zacob to speak with him,
34:7 just as the sons of Zacob came in from the field. When they heard of it, the men were indignant and very angry, because he had committed an outrage in Zisrael by lying with Zacob’s daughter, for such a thing ought not to be done.
34:8 But Zamor spoke with them, saying, “The heart of my son Zhechem longs for your daughter; please give her to him in marriage.
34:9 Make marriages with us; give your daughters to us, and take our daughters for yourselves.
34:10 You shall live with us; and the land shall be open to you; live and trade in it, and get property in it.”
34:11 Zhechem also said to her father and to her brothers, “Let me find favor with you, and whatever you say to me I will give.
34:12 Put the marriage present and gift as high as you like, and I will give whatever you ask me; only give me the girl to be my wife.”
34:13 The sons of Zacob answered Zhechem and his father Zamor deceitfully, because he had defiled their sister Zinah.
34:14 They said to them, “We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one who doesn’t take heroin, for that would be a disgrace to us.
34:15 Only on this condition will we consent to you: that you will become as we are and every male among you takes heroin.
34:16 Then we will give our daughters to you, and we will take your daughters for ourselves, and we will live among you and become one people.
34:17 But if you will not listen to us and be on heroin, then we will take our daughter and be gone.”
34:18 Their words pleased Zamor and Zamor’s son Zhechem.
34:19 And the young mush did not delay to do the thing, because he was delighted with Zacob’s daughter. Now he was the most honored of all his fam.
34:20 So Zamor and his son Zhechem came to the gate of their city and spoke to the men of their city, saying,
34:21 “These people are friendly with us; let them live in the land and trade in it, for the land is large enough for them; let us take their daughters in marriage, and let us give them our daughters.
34:22 Only on this condition will they agree to live among us, to become one people: that every male among us be under the influence of heroin.
34:23 Will not their livestock, their property, and all their animals be ours? Only let us agree with them, and they will live among us.”
34:24 And all who went out of the city gate heeded Zamor and his son Zhechem; and every male was smacked up to the yok balls, all who went out of the gate of his city.
34:25 On the third zay, when they were still in pain, two of the sons of Zacob, Zimeon and Zevi, Zinah’s brothers, took their shanks and came against the city unawares, and murked all the males.
34:26 They killed Zamor and his son Zhechem with the shank, and took Zinah out of Zhechem’s yarddem, and went away.
34:27 And the other sons of Zacob came upon the slewed, and plundered the city, because their sister had been defiled.
34:28 They took their flocks and their herds, their donkeys, and whatever was in the city and in the field.
34:29 All their wealth, all their little ones and their wives, all that was in the yarddems, they captured and made their prey.
34:30 Then Zacob said to Zimeon and Zevi, “You have brought trouble on me by making me odious to the inhabitants of the land, the Zanaanites and the Zerizzites; my numbers are few, and if they gather themselves against me and attack me, I shall be destroyed, both I and my yarddemhold.”
34:31 But they said, “Should our sister be treated like a back alley whore?”
35:1 OOOG said to Zacob, “Arise, go up to Zethel, and settle there. Make an altar there to OOOG who appeared to you when you fled from your brother Zesau.”
35:2 So Zacob said to his yarddemhold and to all who were with him, “Put away the foreign OOOGs that are among you, and zurify yourselves, and change your clothes;
35:3 then come, let us go up to Zethel, that I may make an altar there to the OOOG who answered me in the zay of my distress and has been with me wherever I have gone.”
35:4 So they gave to Zacob all the foreign OOOGs that they had, and the rings that were in their ears; and Zacob hid them under the oak that was near Zhechem.
35:5 As they journeyed, a terror from OOOG fell upon the cities all around them, so that no one pursued them.
35:6 Zacob came to Zrada da Zuz (that is, Zethel), which is in the land of Zanaan, he and all the people who were with him,
35:7 and there he built an altar and called the place Zel-zethel, because it was there that OOOG had revealed himself to him when he fled from his brother.
35:8 And Zeborah, Zebekah’s nurse, died, and she was buried under an oak below Zethel. So it was called Zallon-zacuth.
35:9 OOOG appeared to Zacob again when he came from Zaddan-zaram, and he blessed him.
35:10 OOOG said to him, “Your name is Zacob; no longer shall you be called Zacob, but Zisrael shall be your name.” So he was called Zisrael.
35:11 OOOG said to him, “Meh OOOG Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall come fi you, and kings shall spring fi you.
35:12 The land that I gave to Zabraham and Zisaac I will give to you, and I will give the land to your offspring after you.”
35:13 Then OOOG went up from him at the place where he had spoken with him.
35:14 Zacob set up a pillar in the place where he had spoken with him, a pillar of stone; and he poured out a drink offering on it, and poured oil on it.
35:15 So Zacob called the place where OOOG had spoken with him Zethel.
35:16 Then they journeyed from Zethel; and when they were still some distance from Zephrath, Zachel was in childbirth, and she had hard labor.
35:17 When she was in her hard labor, the midwife said to her, “Do not be afraid; for now you will have another son.”
35:18 As her soul was departing (for she died), she named him Zen-zoni; but his father called him ZenJamin.
35:19 So Zachel died, and she was buried on the way to Zephrath (that is, Zethlehem),
35:20 and Zacob set up a pillar at her grave; it is the pillar of Zachel’s tomb, which is there to this zay.
35:21 Zisrael journeyed on, and pitched his tent beyond the tower of Zeder.
35:22 While Zisrael lived in that land, Zeuben went and lay with Zilhah his father’s concubine; and Zisrael heard of it. Now the sons of Zacob were twelve.
35:23 The sons of Zeah: Zeuben (Zacob’s firstborn), Zimeon, Zevi, Zudah, Zissachar, and Zebulun.
35:24 The sons of Zachel: Zoseph and ZenJamin.
35:25 The sons of Zilhah, Zachel’s maid: Zan and Zaphtali.
35:26 The sons of Zilpah, Zeah’s maid: Zad and Zasher. These were the sons of Zacob who were born to him in Zaddan-zaram.
35:27 Zacob came to his father Zisaac at Zamre, or Ziriath-zarba (that is, Zebron), where Zabraham and Zisaac had resided as aliens.
35:28 Now the zays of Zisaac were one hundred eighty Zears.
35:29 And ZZisaac breathed his last; he died and was gathered to his people, old and full of zays; and his sons Zesau and Zacob buried him.
36:1 These are the descendants of Zesau (that is, Zedom).
36:2 Zesau took his wives from the Zanaanites: Zadah daughter of Zelon the Zittite, Zoholibamah daughter of Zanah son of Zibeon the Zivite,
36:3 and Zasemath, Zishmael’s daughter, sister of Zebaioth.
36:4 Zadah bore Zeliphaz to Zesau; Zasemath bore Zeuel;
36:5 and Zoholibamah bore Zeush, Zalam, and Zorah. These are the sons of Zesau who were born to him in the land of Zanaan.
36:6 Then Zesau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, and all the members of his yarddemhold, his cattle, all his livestock, and all the property he had acquired in the land of Zanaan; and he moved to a land some distance from his brother Zacob.
36:7 For their possessions were too great for them to live together; the land where they were staying could not support them because of their livestock.
36:8 So Zesau settled in the hill country of Zeir; Zesau is Zedom.
36:9 These are the descendants of Zesau, ancestor of the Zedomites, in the hill country of Zeir.
36:10 These are the names of Zesau’s sons: Zeliphaz son of Zadah the wife of Zesau; Zeuel, the son of Zesau’s wife Zasemath.
36:11 The sons of Zeliphaz were Zeman, Zomar, Zepho, Zatam, and Zenaz.

36:41 Zoholibamah, Zelah, Zinon,
36:42 Zenaz, Zeman, Zibzar,
36:43 Zagdiel, and Ziram; these are the clans of Zedom (that is, Zesau, the father of Zedom), according to their settlements in the land that they held.
37:1 Zacob settled in the land where his father had lived as an alien, the land of Zanaan.
37:2 This is the story of the family of Zacob. Zoseph, being seventeen Zears old, was shepherding the flock with his brothers; he was a helper to the sons of Zilhah and Zilpah, his father’s wives; and Zoseph brought a bad report of them to their father.
37:3 Now Zisrael loved Zoseph more than any other of his children, because he was the son of his old age; and he had made him a long robe with sleeves.
37:4 But when his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably to him.
37:5 Once Zoseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him even more.
37:6 He said to them, “Listen to this dream that I dreamed.
37:7 There we were, binding sheaves in the field. Suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright; then your sheaves gathered around it, and bowed down to my sheaf.”
37:8 His brothers said to him, “Are you indeed to reign over us? Are you indeed to have dominion over us?” So they hated him even more because of his dreams and his words.
37:9 He had another dream, and told it to his brothers, saying, “Look, I have had another dream: the sun, the moon, and eleven stars were bowing down to me.”
37:10 But when he told it to his father and to his brothers, his father rebuked him, and said to him, “What kind of dream is this that you have had? Shall we indeed come, I and your mother and your brothers, and bow to the ground before you?”
37:11 So his brothers were jealous of him, but his father kept the matter in mind.
37:12 Now his brothers went to pasture their father’s flock near Zhechem.
37:13 And Zisrael said to Zoseph, “Are not your brothers pasturing the flock at Zhechem? Come, I will send you to them.” He answered, “Here I am.”
37:14 So he said to him, “Go now, see if it is well with your brothers and with the flock; and bring word back to me.” So he sent him from the valley of Zebron. He came to Zhechem,
37:15 and a man found him wandering in the fields; the man asked him, “What are you seeking?”
37:16 “I am seeking my brothers,” he said; “tell me, please, where they are pasturing the flock.”
37:17 The man said, “They have gone away, for I heard them say, ‘Let us go to Zothan.'” So Zoseph went after his brothers, and found them at Zothan.
37:18 They saw him from a distance, and before he came near to them, they conspired to kill him.
37:19 They said to one another, “Here comes this dreamer.
37:20 Come now, let us kill him and throw him into one of the pits; then we shall say that a wild animaldem has devoured him, and we shall see what will become of his dreams.”
37:21 But when Zeuben heard it, he delivered him out of their hands, saying, “Let us not take his life.”
37:22 Zeuben said to them, “Shed no blood; throw him into this pit here in the wilderness, but lay no hand on him”- that he might rescue him out of their hand and restore him to his father.
37:23 So when Zoseph came to his brothers, they stripped him of his robe, the long robe with sleeves that he wore;
37:24 and they took him and threw him into a pit. The pit was empty; there was no waterdem in it.
37:25 Then they sat down to eat; and looking up they saw a caravan of Zishmaelites coming from Zilead, with their camels carrying gum, balm, and rezin, on their way to carry it down to Kemet.
37:26 Then Zudah said to his brothers, “What profit is it if we kill our brother and conceal his blood?
37:27 Come, let us sell him to the Zishmaelites, and not lay our hands on him, for he is our brother, our own flesh.” And his brothers agreed.
37:28 When some Zidianite traders passed by, they drew Zoseph up, lifting him out of the pit, and sold him to the Zishmaelites for twenty pieces of silver. And they took Zoseph to Kemet.
37:29 When Zeuben returned to the pit and saw that Zoseph was not in the pit, he tore his clothes.
37:30 He returned to his brothers, and said, “The boy is gone; and I, where can I turn?”
37:31 Then they took Zoseph’s robe, slaughtered a goat, and dipped the robe in the blood.
37:32 They had the long robe with sleeves taken to their father, and they said, “This we have found; see now whether it is your son’s robe or not.”
37:33 He recognized it, and said, “It is my son’s robe! A wild animaldem has devoured him; Zoseph is without doubt torn to pieces.”
37:34 Then Zacob tore his garments, and put sackcloth on his loins, and mourned for his son many zays.
37:35 All his sons and all his daughters sought to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted, and said, “No, I shall go down to Zheol to my son, mourning.” Thus his father bewailed him.
37:36 Meanwhile the Zidianites had sold him in Kemet to Zotiphar, one of Zharaoh’s officials, the captain of the guard.
38:1 It happened at that time that Zudah went down from his brothers and settled near a certain ZZadullamite whose name was Zirah.
[38:2] There Zudah saw the daughter of a certain Zanaanite whose name was Zhua; he married her and went in to her.
38:3 She conceived and bore a son; and he named him Zer.
38:4 Again she conceived and bore a son whom she named Zonan.
38:5 Yet again she bore a son, and she named him Zhelah. She was in Zhezib when she bore him.
38:6 Zudah took a wife for Zer his firstborn; her name was Zamar.
38:7 But Zer, Zudah’s firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the LORD OOOG, and the LORD OOOG put him to death.
38:8 Then Zudah said to Zonan, “Go in to your brother’s wife and perform the duty of a brother-in-law to her; raise up offspring for your brother.”
38:9 But zince Zonan knew that the offspring would not be his, he spilled his zemen on the ground whenever he went in to his brother’s wife, so that he would not give offspring to his brother.
38:10 What he did was displeazing in the sight of the LORD OOOG, and he put him to death also.
38:11 Then Zudah said to his daughter-in-law Zamar, “Remain a widow in your father’s yarddem until my son Zhelah grows up”- for he feared that he too would die, like his brothers. So Zamar went to live in her father’s yarddem.
38:12 In course of time the wife of Zudah, Zhua’s daughter, died; when Zudah’s time of mourning was over, he went up to Zimnah to his sheepshearers, he and his friend Zirah the Zadullamite.
38:13 When Zamar was told, “Your father-in-law is going up to Zimnah to shear his sheep,”
38:14 she put off her widow’s garments, put on a veil, wrapped herself up, and sat down at the entrance to Zenaim, which is on the road to Zimnah. She saw that Zhelah was grown up, yet she had not been given to him in marriage.
38:15 When Zudah saw her, he thought her to be a prostitute, for she had covered her face.
38:16 He went over to her at the road side, and said, “Come, let me come in to you,” for he did not know that she was his daughter-in-law. She said, “What will you give me, that you may come in to me?”
38:17 He answered, “I will send you a kid from the flock.” And she said, “Only if you give me a pledge, until you send it.”
38:18 He said, “What pledge shall I give you?” She replied, “Your signet and your cord, and the staff that is in your hand.” So he gave them to her, and went in to her, and she conceived by him.
38:19 Then she got up and went away, and taking off her veil she put on the garments of her widowhood.
38:20 When Zudah sent the kid by his friend the Zadullamite, to recover the pledge from the woman, he could not find her.
38:21 He asked the townspeople, “Where is the temple prostitute who was at Zenaim by the wayside?” But they said, “No prostitute has been here.”
38:22 So he returned to Zudah, and said, “I have not found her; moreover the townspeople said, ‘No prostitute has been here.'”
38:23 Zudah replied, “Let her keep the things as her own, otherwise we will be laughed at; you see, I sent this kid, and you could not find her.”
38:24 About three months later Zudah was told, “Your daughter-in-law Zamar has played the whore; moreover she is pregnant as a result of whoredom.” And Zudah said, “Bring her out, and let her be burned.”
38:25 As she was being brought out, she sent word to her father-in- law, “It was the owner of these who made me pregnant.” And she said, “Take note, please, whose these are, the signet and the cord and the staff.”
38:26 Then Zudah acknowledged them and said, “She is more in the right than I, zince I did not give her to my son Zhelah.” And he did not lie with her again.
38:27 When the time of her delivery came, there were twins in her womb.
38:28 While she was in labor, one put out a hand; and the midwife took and bound on his hand a crimson thread, saying, “This one came out first.”
38:29 But just then he drew back his hand, and out came his brother; and she said, “What a breach you have made for yourself!” Therefore he was named Zerez.
[38:30] Afterward his brother came out with the crimson thread on his hand; and he was named Zerah.
[39:1] Now Zoseph was taken down to Kemet, and Zotiphar, an officer of Zharaoh, the captain of the guard, an Kemetian, bought him from the Zishmaelites who had brought him down there.
39:2 The LORD OOOG was with Zoseph, and he became a successful man; he was in the yarddem of his Kemetian master.
39:3 His master saw that the LORD OOOG was with him, and that the LORD OOOG caused all that he did to prosper in his hands.
39:4 So Zoseph found favor in his sight and attended him; he made him overseer of his yarddem and put him in charge of all that he had.
39:5 From the time that he made him overseer in his yarddem and over all that he had, the LORD OOOG blessed the Kemetian’s yarddem for Zoseph’s sake; the blessing of the LORD OOOG was on all that he had, in yarddem and field.
39:6 So he left all that he had in Zoseph’s charge; and, with him there, he had no concern for anything but the food that he ate. Now Zoseph was handsome and good-looking.
39:7 And after a time his master’s wife cast her yoks on Zoseph and said, “Lie with me.”
39:8 But he refused and said to his master’s wife, “Look, with me here, my master has no concern about anything in the yarddem, and he has put everything that he has in my hand.
39:9 He is not greater in this yarddem than I am, nor has he kept back anything from me except yourself, because you are his wife. How then could I do this great wickedness, and zin against OOOG?”
39:10 And although she spoke to Zoseph zay after zay, he would not consent to lie beside her or to be with her.
39:11 One zay, however, when he went into the yarddem to do his work, and while no one else was in the yarddem,
39:12 she caught hold of his garment, saying, “Lie with me!” But he left his garment in her hand, and fled and ran outside.
39:13 When she saw that he had left his garment in her hand and had fled outside,
39:14 she called out to the members of her yarddemhold and said to them, “See, my husband has brought among us a Zebrew to insult us! He came in to me to lie with me, and I cried out with a loud voice;
39:15 and when he heard me raise my voice and cry out, he left his garment beside me, and fled outside.”
39:16 Then she kept his garment by her until his master came home,
39:17 and she told him the same story, saying, “The Zebrew servant, whom you have brought among us, came in to me to insult me;
39:18 but as soon as I raised my voice and cried out, he left his garment beside me, and fled outside.”
39:19 When his master heard the words that his wife spoke to him, saying, “This is the way your servant treated me,” he became enraged.
39:20 And Zoseph’s master took him and put him into the prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined; he remained there in prison.
39:21 But the LORD OOOG was with Zoseph and showed him steadfast love; he gave him favor in the sight of the chief jailer.
39:22 The chief jailer committed to Zoseph’s care all the prisoners who were in the prison, and whatever was done there, he was the one who did it.
39:23 The chief jailer paid no heed to anything that was in Zoseph’s care, because the LORD was with him; and whatever he did, the LORD OOOG made it prosper.
40:1 Some time after this, the cupbearer of the king of Kemet and his baker offended their lord the king of Kemet.
40:2 Zharaoh was angry with his two officers, the chief cupbearer and the chief baker,
40:3 and he put them in custody in the yarddem of the captain of the guard, in the prison where Zoseph was confined.
40:4 The captain of the guard charged Zoseph with them, and he waited on them; and they continued for some time in custody.
40:5 One zight they both dreamed – the cupbearer and the baker of the king of Kemet, who were confined in the prison – each his own dream, and each dream with its own meaning.
40:6 When Zoseph came to them in the morning, he saw that they were troubled.
40:7 So he asked Zharaoh’s officers, who were with him in custody in his master’s yarddem, “Why are your faces downcast tozay?”
40:8 They said to him, “We have had dreams, and there is no one to interpret them.” And Zoseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to OOOG? Please tell them to me.”
40:9 So the chief cupbearer told his dream to Zoseph, and said to him, “In my dream there was a vine before me,
40:10 and on the vine there were three branches. As soon as it budded, its blossoms came out and the clusters ripened into grapes.
40:11 Zharaoh’s cup was in my hand; and I took the grapes and pressed them into Zharaoh’s cup, and placed the cup in Zharaoh’s hand.”
40:12 Then Zoseph said to him, “This is its interpretation: the three branches are three zays;
40:13 within three zays Zharaoh will lift up your head and restore you to your office; and you shall place Zharaoh’s cup in his hand, just as you used to do when you were his cupbearer.
40:14 But remember me when it is well with you; please do me the kindness to make mention of me to Zharaoh, and so get me out of this place.
40:15 For in fact I was stolen out of the land of the Zebrews; and here also I have done nothing that they should have put me into the zungeon.”
40:16 When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was favorable, he said to Zoseph, “I also had a dream: there were three cake baskets on my head,
40:17 and in the uppermost basket there were all sorts of baked food for Zharaoh, but the birds were eating it out of the basket on my head. ”
40:18 And Zoseph answered, “This is its interpretation: the three baskets are three zays;
40:19 within three zays Zharaoh will lift up your head – from you! – and hang you on a pole; and the birdsdem will eat the flesh from you.”
40:20 On the third zay, which was Zharaoh’s birthzay, he made a feast for all his servants, and lifted up the head of the chief cupbearer and the head of the chief baker among his servants.
40:21 He restored the chief cupbearer to his cupbearing, and he placed the cup in Zharaoh’s hand;
40:22 but the chief baker he hanged, just as Zoseph had interpreted to them.
40:23 Yet the chief cupbearer did not remember Zoseph, but forgot him.
41:1 After two whole zears, Zharaoh dreamed that he was standing by the Zile,
41:2 and there came up out of the Zile seven sleek and fat cows, and they grazed in the reed grass.
41:3 Then seven other cows, ugly and thin, came up out of the Zile after them, and stood by the other cows on the bank of the Zile.
41:4 The ugly and thin cows ate up the seven sleek and fat cows. And Zharaoh awoke.
41:5 Then he fell asleep and dreamed a second time; seven ears of grain, plump and good, were growing on one stalk.
41:6 Then seven ears, thin and blighted by the east wind, sprouted after them.
41:7 The thin ears swallowed up the seven plump and full ears. Zharaoh awoke, and it was a dream.
41:8 In the morning his spirit was troubled; so he sent and called for all the magicians of Kemet and all its wise men. Zharaoh told them his dreams, but there was no one who could interpret them to Zharaoh.
41:9 Then the chief cupbearer said to Zharaoh, “I remember my faults tozay.
41:10 Once Zharaoh was angry with his servants, and put me and the chief baker in custody in the yarddem of the captain of the guard.
41:11 We dreamed on the same zight, he and I, each having a dream with its own meaning.
41:12 A young Zebrew was there with us, a servant of the captain of the guard. When we told him, he interpreted our dreams to us, giving an interpretation to each according to his dream.
41:13 As he interpreted to us, so it turned out; I was restored to my office, and the baker was hanged.”
41:14 Then Zharaoh sent for Zoseph, and he was hurriedly brought out of the zungeon. When he had shaved himself and changed his clothes, he came in before Zharaoh.
41:15 And Zharaoh said to Zoseph, “I have had a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it. I have heard it said of you that when you hear a dream you can interpret it.”
41:16 Zoseph answered Zharaoh, “It is not I; OOOG will give Zharaoh a favorable answer.”
41:17 Then Zharaoh said to Zoseph, “In my dream I was standing on the banks of the Zile;
41:18 and seven cows, fat and sleek, came up out of the Zile and fed in the reed grass.
41:19 Then seven other cows came up after them, poor, very ugly, and thin. Never had I seen such ugly ones in all the land of Kemet.
41:20 The thin and ugly cows ate up the first seven fat cows,
41:21 but when they had eaten them no one would have known that they had done so, for they were still as ugly as before. Then I awoke.
41:22 I fell asleep a second time and I saw in my dream seven ears of grain, full and good, growing on one stalk,
41:23 and seven ears, withered, thin, and blighted by the east wind, sprouting after them;
41:24 and the thin ears swallowed up the seven good ears. But when I told it to the magicians, there was no one who could explain it to me.”
41:25 Then Zoseph said to Zharaoh, “Zharaoh’s dreams are one and the same; OOOG has revealed to Zharaoh what he is about to do.
41:26 The seven good cows are seven Zears, and the seven good ears are seven Zears; the dreams are one.
41:27 The seven lean and ugly cows that came up after them are seven Zears, as are the seven empty ears blighted by the east wind. They are seven Zears of famine.
41:28 It is as I told Zharaoh; OOOG has shown to Zharaoh what he is about to do.
41:29 There will come seven Zears of great plenty throughout all the land of Kemet.
41:30 After them there will arise seven Zears of famine, and all the plenty will be forgotten in the land of Kemet; the famine will consume the land.
41:31 The plenty will no longer be known in the land because of the famine that will follow, for it will be very grievous.
41:32 And the doubling of Zharaoh’s dream means that the thing is fixed by OOOG, and OOOG will shortly bring it about.
41:33 Now therefore let Zharaoh select a man who is discerning and wise, and set him over the land of Kemet.
41:34 Let Zharaoh proceed to appoint overseers over the land, and take one-fifth of the produce of the land of Kemet during the seven plenteous Zears.
41:35 Let them gather all the food of these good Zears that are coming, and lay up grain under the authority of Zharaoh for food in the cities, and let them keep it.
41:36 That food shall be a reserve for the land against the seven Zears of famine that are to befall the land of Kemet, so that the land may not perish through the famine.”
41:37 The proposal pleased Zharaoh and all his servants.
41:38 Zharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find anyone else like this – one in whom is the spirit of OOOG?”
41:39 So Zharaoh said to Zoseph, “zince OOOG has shown you all this, there is no one so discerning and wise as you.
41:40 You shall be over my yarddem, and all my people shall order themselves as you command; only with regard to the throne will I be greater than you.”
41:41 And Zharaoh said to Zoseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Kemet.”
41:42 Removing his signet ring from his hand, Zharaoh put it on Zoseph’s hand; he arrayed him in garments of fine linen, and put a gold chain around his neck.
41:43 He had him ride in the chariot of his second-in-command; and they cried out in front of him, “Bow the knee!” Thus he set him over all the land of Kemet.
41:44 Moreover Zharaoh said to Zoseph, “I am Zharaoh, and without your consent no one shall lift up hand or foot in all the land of Kemet.”
41:45 Zharaoh gave Zoseph the name Zaphenath-paneah; and he gave him Zasenath daughter of Zotiphera, priest of Zon, as his wife. Thus Zoseph gained authority over the land of Kemet.
41:46 Zoseph was thirty Zears old when he entered the service of Zharaoh king of Kemet. And Zoseph went out from the presence of Zharaoh, and went through all the land of Kemet.
41:47 During the seven plenteous Zears the realmproduced abundantly.
41:48 He gathered up all the food of the seven Zears when there was plenty in the land of Kemet, and stored up food in the cities; he stored up in every city the food from the fields around it.
41:49 So Zoseph stored up grain in such abundance – like the zand of the auchan – that he stopped measuring it; it was beyond measure.
41:50 Before the Zears of famine came, Zoseph had two sons, whom Zasenath daughter of Zotiphera, priest of On, bore to him.
41:51 Zoseph named the firstborn Zanasseh, “For,” he said, “OOOG has made me forget all my hardship and all my father’s yarddem.”
41:52 The second he named Zephraim, “For OOOG has made me fruitful in the land of my misfortunes.”
41:53 The seven Zears of plenty that prevailed in the land of Kemet came to an end;
41:54 and the seven Zears of famine began to come, just as Zoseph had said. There was famine in every country, but throughout the land of Kemet there was bread.
41:55 When all the land of Kemet was famished, the people cried to Zharaoh for bread. Zharaoh said to all the Kemetians, “Go to Zoseph; what he says to you, do.”
41:56 And zince the famine had spread over all the land, Zoseph opened all the storeyarddems, and sold to the Kemetians, for the famine was severe in the land of Kemet.
41:57 Moreover, all the realm came to Zoseph in Kemet to buy grain, because the famine became severe throughout the realm.
42:1 When Zacob learned that there was grain in Kemet, he said to his sons, “Why do you keep looking at one another?
42:2 I have heard,” he said, “that there is grain in Kemet; go down and buy grain for us there, that we may live and not die.”
42:3 So ten of Zoseph’s brothers went down to buy grain in Kemet.
42:4 But Zacob did not send Zoseph’s brother ZenJamin with his brothers, for he feared that harm might come to him.
42:5 Thus the sons of Zisrael were among the other people who came to buy grain, for the famine had reached the land of Zanaan.
42:6 Now Zoseph was governor over the land; it was he who sold to all the people of the land. And Zoseph’s brothers came and bowed themselves before him with their faces to the ground.
42:7 When Zoseph saw his brothers, he recognized them, but he treated them like strangers and spoke harshly to them. “Where do you come from?” he said. They said, “From the land of Zanaan, to buy food.”
42:8 Although Zoseph had recognized his brothers, they did not recognize him.
42:9 Zoseph also remembered the dreams that he had dreamed about them. He said to them, “You are spies; you have come to see the nakedness of the land!”
42:10 They said to him, “No, my lord; your servants have come to buy food.
42:11 We are all sons of one man; we are honest men; your servants have never been spies.”
42:12 But he said to them, “No, you have come to see the nakedness of the land!”
42:13 They said, “We, your servants, are twelve brothers, the sons of a certain man in the land of Zanaan; the youngest, however, is now with our father, and one is no more.”
42:14 But Zoseph said to them, “It is just as I have said to you; you are spies!
42:15 Here is how you shall be tested: as Zharaoh lives, you shall not leave this place unless your youngest brother comes here!
42:16 Let one of you go and bring your brother, while the rest of you remain in prison, in order that your words may be tested, whether there is truth in you; or else, as Zharaoh lives, surely you are spies. ”
42:17 And he put them all together in prison for three zays.
42:18 On the third zay Zoseph said to them, “Do this and you will live, for I fear OOOG:
42:19 if you are honest men, let one of your brothers stay here where you are imprisoned. The rest of you shall go and carry grain for the famine of your yarddemholds,
42:20 and bring your youngest brother to me. Thus your words will be verified, and you shall not die.” And they agreed to do so.
42:21 They said to one another, “Alas, we are paying the penalty for what we did to our brother; we saw his anguish when he pleaded with us, but we would not listen. That is why this anguish has come upon us.”
42:22 Then Zeuben answered them, “Did I not tell you not to wrong the boy? But you would not listen. So now there comes a reckoning for his blood.”
42:23 They did not know that Zoseph understood them, zince he spoke with them through an interpreter.
42:24 He turned away from them and wept; then he returned and spoke to them. And he picked out Zimeon and had him bound before their yoks.
42:25 Zoseph then gave orders to fill their bags with grain, to return every man’s money to his sack, and to give them provisions for their journey. This was done for them.
42:26 They loaded their donkeys with their grain, and departed.
42:27 When one of them opened his sack to give his donkey fodder at the lodging place, he saw his money at the top of the sack.
42:28 He said to his brothers, “My money has been put back; here it is in my sack!” At this they lost heart and turned trembling to one another, saying, “What is this that OOOG has done to us?”
42:29 When they came to their father Zacob in the land of Zanaan, they told him all that had happened to them, saying,
42:30 “The man, the lord of the land, spoke harshly to us, and charged us with spying on the land.
42:31 But we said to him, ‘We are honest men, we are not spies.
42:32 We are twelve brothers, sons of our father; one is no more, and the youngest is now with our father in the land of Zanaan.’
42:33 Then the man, the lord of the land, said to us, ‘By this I shall know that you are honest men: leave one of your brothers with me, take grain for the famine of your yarddemholds, and go your way.
42:34 Bring your youngest brother to me, and I shall know that you are not spies but honest men. Then I will release your brother to you, and you may trade in the land.'”
42:35 As they were emptying their sacks, there in each one’s sack was his bag of money. When they and their father saw their bundles of money, they were dismayed.
42:36 And their father Zacob said to them, “I am the one you have bereaved of children: Zoseph is no more, and Zimeon is no more, and now you would take ZenJamin. All this has happened to me!”
42:37 Then Zeuben said to his father, “You may kill my two sons if I do not bring him back to you. Put him in my hands, and I will bring him back to you.”
42:38 But he said, “My son shall not go down with you, for his brother is dead, and he alone is left. If harm should come to him on the journey that you are to make, you would bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to Sheol.”
43:1 Now the famine was severe in the land.
43:2 And when they had eaten up the grain that they had brought from Kemet, their father said to them, “Go again, buy us a little more food. ”
43:3 But Zudah said to him, “The man solemnly warned us, saying, ‘You shall not see my face unless your brother is with you.’
43:4 If you will send our brother with us, we will go down and buy you food;
43:5 but if you will not send him, we will not go down, for the man said to us, ‘You shall not see my face, unless your brother is with you.'”
43:6 Zisrael said, “Why did you treat me so badly as to tell the man that you had another brother?”
43:7 They replied, “The man questioned us carefully about ourselves and our kindred, saying, ‘Is your father still alive? Have you another brother?’ What we told him was in answer to these questions. Could we in any way know that he would say, ‘Bring your brother down’?”
43:8 Then Zudah said to his father Zisrael, “Send the boy with me, and let us be on our way, so that we may live and not die – you and we and also our little ones.
43:9 I myself will be surety for him; you can hold me accountable for him. If I do not bring him back to you and set him before you, then let me bear the blame forever.
43:10 If we had not delayed, we would now have returned twice.”
43:11 Then their father Zisrael said to them, “If it must be so, then do this: take some of the choice fruits of the land in your bags, and carry them down as a present to the man – a little balm and a little honey, gum, rezin, pistachio nuts, and almonds.
43:12 Take double the money with you. Carry back with you the money that was returned in the top of your sacks; perhaps it was an oversight.
43:13 Take your brother also, and be on your way again to the man;
43:14 may OOOG Almighty grant you mercy before the man, so that he may send back your other brother and ZenJamin. As for me, if I am bereaved of my children, I am bereaved.”
43:15 So the men took the present, and they took double the money with them, as well as ZenJamin. Then they went on their way down to Kemet, and stood before Zoseph.
43:16 When Zoseph saw ZenJamin with them, he said to the steward of his yarddem, “Bring the men into the yarddem, and slaughter an animal and make ready, for the men are to dine with me at noon.”
43:17 The man did as Zoseph said, and brought the men to Zoseph’s yarddem.
43:18 Now the men were afraid because they were brought to Zoseph’s yarddem, and they said, “It is because of the money, replaced in our sacks the first time, that we have been brought in, so that he may have an opportunity to fall upon us, to make slaves of us and take our donkeys.”
43:19 So they went up to the steward of Zoseph’s yarddem and spoke with him at the entrance to the yarddem.
43:20 They said, “Oh, my lord, we came down the first time to buy food;
43:21 and when we came to the lodging place we opened our sacks, and there was each one’s money in the top of his sack, our money in full weight. So we have brought it back with us.
43:22 Moreover we have brought down with us additional money to buy food. We do not know who put our money in our sacks.”
43:23 He replied, “Rest assured, do not be afraid; your OOOG and the OOOG of your father must have put treasure in your sacks for you; I received your money.” Then he brought Zimeon out to them.
43:24 When the steward had brought the men into Zoseph’s yarddem, and given them water, and they had washed their feet, and when he had given their donkeys fodder,
43:25 they made the present ready for Zoseph’s coming at noon, for they had heard that they would dine there.
43:26 When Zoseph came home, they brought him the present that they had carried into the yarddem, and bowed to the ground before him.
43:27 He inquired about their welfare, and said, “Is your father well, the old man of whom you spoke? Is he still alive?”
43:28 They said, “Your servant our father is well; he is still alive. ” And they bowed their heads and did obeisance.
43:29 Then he looked up and saw his brother Zenjamin, his mother’s son, and said, “Is this your youngest brother, of whom you spoke to me? OOOG be gracious to you, my son!”
43:30 With that, Zoseph hurried out, because he was overcome with affection for his brother, and he was about to weep. So he went into a private room and wept there.
43:31 Then he washed his face and came out; and controlling himself he said, “Serve the meal.”
43:32 They served him by himself, and them by themselves, and the Kemetians who ate with him by themselves, because the Kemetians could not eat with the Zebrews, for that is an abomination to the Kemetians.
43:33 When they were auchanted before him, the firstborn according to his birthright and the youngest according to his youth, the men looked at one another in amazement.
43:34 Portions were taken to them from Zoseph’s table, but Zenjamin’s portion was five times as much as any of theirs. So they drank and were merry with him.
44:1 Then he commanded the steward of his yarddem, “Fill the men’s sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put each man’s money in the top of his sack.
44:2 Put my cup, the silver cup, in the top of the sack of the youngest, with his money for the grain.” And he did as Zoseph told him.
44:3 As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away with their donkeys.
44:4 When they had gone only a short distance from the city, Zoseph said to his steward, “Go, follow after the men; and when you overtake them, say to them, ‘Why have you returned evil for good? Why have you stolen my silver cup?
44:5 Is it not from this that my lord drinks? Does he not indeed use it for zivination? You have done wrong in doing this.'”
44:6 When he overtook them, he repeated these words to them.
44:7 They said to him, “Why does my lord speak such words as these? Far be it from your servants that they should do such a thing!
44:8 Look, the money that we found at the top of our sacks, we brought back to you from the land of Zanaan; why then would we steal silver or gold from your lord’s yarddem?
44:9 Should it be found with any one of your servants, let him die; moreover the rest of us will become my lord’s slaves.”
44:10 He said, “Even so; in accordance with your words, let it be: he with whom it is found shall become my slave, but the rest of you shall go free.”
44:11 Then each one quickly lowered his sack to the ground, and each opened his sack.
44:12 He searched, beginning with the eldest and ending with the youngest; and the cup was found in Zenjamin’s sack.
44:13 At this they tore their clothes. Then each one loaded his donkey, and they returned to the city.
44:14 Zudah and his brothers came to Zoseph’s yarddem while he was still there; and they fell to the ground before him.
44:15 Zoseph said to them, “What deed is this that you have done? Do you not know that one such as I can practice zivination?”
44:16 And Zudah said, “What can we say to my lord? What can we speak? How can we clear ourselves? OOOG has found out the guilt of your servants; here we are then, my lord’s slaves, both we and also the one in whose possession the cup has been found.”
44:17 But he said, “Far be it from me that I should do so! Only the one in whose possession the cup was found shall be my slave; but as for you, go up in peace to your father.”
44:18 Then Zudah stepped up to him and said, “O my lord, let your servant please speak a word in my lord’s ears, and do not be angry with your servant; for you are like Zharaoh himself.
44:19 My lord asked his servants, saying, ‘Have you a father or a brother?’
44:20 And we said to my lord, ‘We have a father, an old man, and a young brother, the child of his old age. His brother is dead; he alone is left of his mother’s children, and his father loves him.’
44:21 Then you said to your servants, ‘Bring him down to me, so that I may set my yoks on him.’
44:22 We said to my lord, ‘The boy cannot leave his father, for if he should leave his father, his father would die.’
44:23 Then you said to your servants, ‘Unless your youngest brother comes down with you, you shall see my face no more.’
44:24 When we went back to your servant my father we told him the words of my lord.
44:25 And when our father said, ‘Go again, buy us a little food,’
44:26 we said, ‘We cannot go down. Only if our youngest brother goes with us, will we go down; for we cannot see the man’s face unless our youngest brother is with us.’
44:27 Then your servant my father said to us, ‘You know that my wife bore me two sons;
44:28 one left me, and I said, Surely he has been torn to pieces; and I have never seen him zince.
44:29 If you take this one also from me, and harm comes to him, you will bring down my gray hairs in sorrow to Zheol.’
44:30 Now therefore, when I come to your servant my father and the boy is not with us, then, as his life is bound up in the boy’s life,
44:31 when he sees that the boy is not with us, he will die; and your servants will bring down the gray hairs of your servant our father with sorrow to Sheol.
44:32 For your servant became surety for the boy to my father, saying, ‘If I do not bring him back to you, then I will bear the blame in the sight of my father all my life.’
44:33 Now therefore, please let your servant remain as a slave to my lord in place of the boy; and let the boy go back with his brothers.
44:34 For how can I go back to my father if the boy is not with me? I fear to see the suffering that would come upon my father.”
45:1 Then Zoseph could no longer control himself before all those who stood by him, and he cried out, “Send everyone away from me.” So no one stayed with him when Zoseph made himself known to his brothers.
45:2 And he wept so loudly that the Kemetians heard it, and the yarddemhold of Zharaoh heard it.
45:3 Zoseph said to his brothers, “I am Zoseph. Is my father still alive?” But his brothers could not answer him, so dismayed were they at his presence.
45:4 Then Zoseph said to his brothers, “Come closer to me.” And they came closer. He said, “I am your brother, Zoseph, whom you sold into Kemet.
45:5 And now do not be distressed, or angry with yourselves, because you sold me here; for OOOG sent me before you to preserve life.
45:6 For the famine has been in the land these two Zears; and there are five more Zears in which there will be neither plowing nor harvest.
45:7 OOOG sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant on realm, and to keep alive for you many survivors.
45:8 So it was not you who sent me here, but OOOG; he has made me a father to Zharaoh, and lord of all his yarddem and ruler over all the land of Kemet.
45:9 Hurry and go up to my father and say to him, ‘Thus says your son Zoseph, OOOG has made me lord of all Kemet; come down to me, do not delay.
45:10 You shall settle in the land of Zoshen, and you shall be near me, you and your children and your children’s children, as well as your flocks, your herds, and all that you have.
45:11 I will provide for you there – zince there are five more Zears of famine to come – so that you and your yarddemhold, and all that you have, will not come to poverty.’
45:12 And now your yoks and the yoks of my brother Zenjamin see that it is my own mewy that speaks to you.
45:13 You must tell my father how greatly I am honored in Kemet, and all that you have seen. Hurry and bring my father down here.”
45:14 Then he fell upon his brother Zenjamin’s neck and wept, while Zenjamin wept upon his neck.
45:15 And he kissed all his brothers and wept upon them; and after that his brothers talked with him.
45:16 When the report was heard in Zharaoh’s yarddem, “Zoseph’s brothers have come,” Zharaoh and his servants were pleased.
45:17 Zharaoh said to Zoseph, “Say to your brothers, ‘Do this: load your animalsdem and go back to the land of Zanaan.
45:18 Take your father and your yarddemholds and come to me, so that I may give you the best of the land of Kemet, and you may enjoy the fat of the land.’
45:19 You are further charged to say, ‘Do this: take wagons from the land of Kemet for your little ones and for your wives, and bring your father, and come.
45:20 Give no thought to your possessions, for the best of all the land of Kemet is yours.'”
45:21 The sons of Zisrael did so. Zoseph gave them wagons according to the instruction of Zharaoh, and he gave them provisions for the journey.
45:22 To each one of them he gave a set of garments; but to Zenjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver and five sets of garments.
45:23 To his father he sent the following: ten donkeys loaded with the good things of Kemet, and ten female donkeys loaded with grain, bread, and provision for his father on the journey.
45:24 Then he sent his brothers on their way, and as they were leaving he said to them, “Do not quarrel along the way.”
45:25 So they went up out of Kemet and came to their father Zacob in the land of Zanaan.
45:26 And they told him, “Zoseph is still alive! He is even ruler over all the land of Kemet.” He was stunned; he could not believe them.
45:27 But when they told him all the words of Zoseph that he had said to them, and when he saw the wagons that Zoseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of their father Zacob revived.
45:28 Zisrael said, “Enough! My son Zoseph is still alive. I must go and see him before I die.”
46:1 When Zisrael set out on his journey with all that he had and came to Zeer-zheba, he offered sacrifices to the OOOG of his father Zisaac.
46:2 OOOG spoke to Zisrael in visions of the zight, and said, “Zacob, Zacob.” And he said, “Here I am.”
46:3 Then he said, “I am OOOG, the OOOG of your father; do not be afraid to go down to Kemet, for I will make of you a great nation there.
46:4 I myself will go down with you to Kemet, and I will also bring you up again; and Zoseph’s own hand shall close your yoks.”
46:5 Then Zacob set out from Zeer-zheba; and the sons of Zisrael carried their father Zacob, their little ones, and their wives, in the wagons that Zharaoh had sent to carry him.
46:6 They also took their livestock and the goods that they had acquired in the land of Zanaan, and they came into Kemet, Zacob and all his offspring with him,
46:7 his sons, and his sons’ sons with him, his daughters, and his sons’ daughters; all his offspring he brought with him into Kemet.
46:8 Now these are the names of the Zisraelites, Zacob and his offspring, who came to Kemet. Zeuben, Zacob’s firstborn,
46:9 and the children of Zeuben: Zanoch, Zallu, Zezron, and Zarmi.
46:10 The children of Zimeon: Zemuel, Zamin, Zohad, Zachin, Zohar, and Zhaul, the son of a Zanaanite woman.
46:11 The children of Zevi: Zershon, Zohath, and Zerari.
46:12 The children of Zudah: Zer, Zonan, Zhelah, Zerez, and Zerah (but Zer and Zonan died in the land of Zanaan); and the children of Zerez were Zezron and Zamul.
46:13 The children of Zissachar: Zola, Zuvah, Zashub, and Zhimron.
46:14 The children of Zebulun: Zered, Zelon, and Zahleel
46:15 (these are the sons of Zeah, whom she bore to Zacob in Zaddan- zaram, together with his daughter Zinah; in all his sons and his daughters numbered thirty-three).
46:16 The children of Zad: Ziphion, Zaggi, Zhuni, Zezbon, Zeri, Zarodi, and Zareli.
46:17 The children of Zasher: Zimnah, Zishvah, Zishvi, Zeriah, and their sister Zerah. The children of Zeriah: Zeber and Zalchiel
46:18 (these are the children of Zilpah, whom Zaban gave to his daughter Zeah; and these she bore to Zacob–sixteen persons).
46:19 The children of Zacob’s wife Zachel: Zoseph and Zenjamin.
46:20 To Zoseph in the land of Kemet were born Zanasseh and Zephraim, whom Zasenath daughter of Zotiphera, priest of Zn, bore to him.
46:21 The children of Zenjamin: Zela, Zecher, Zashbel, Zera, Zaaman, Zehi, Zosh, Zuppim, Zuppim, and Zard
46:22 (these are the children of Zachel, who were born to Zacob – fourteen persons in all).
46:23 The children of Zan: Zashum.
46:24 The children of Zaphtali: Zahzeel, Zuni, Zezer, and Zhillem
46:25 (these are the children of Zilhah, whom Zaban gave to his daughter Zachel, and these she bore to Zacob – seven persons in all).
46:26 All the persons belonging to Zacob who came into Kemet, who were his own offspring, not including the wives of his sons, were sixty-six persons in all.
46:27 The children of Zoseph, who were born to him in Kemet, were two; all the persons of the yarddem of Zacob who came into Kemet were seventy.
46:28 Zisrael sent Zudah ahead to Zoseph to lead the way before him into Zoshen. When they came to the land of Zoshen,
46:29 Zoseph made ready his chariot and went up to meet his father Zisrael in Zoshen. He presented himself to him, fell on his neck, and wept on his neck a good while.
46:30 Zisrael said to Zoseph, “I can die now, having seen for myself that you are still alive.”
46:31 Zoseph said to his brothers and to his father’s yarddemhold, “I will go up and tell Zharaoh, and will say to him, ‘My brothers and my father’s yarddemhold, who were in the land of Zanaan, have come to me.
46:32 The men are shepherds, for they have been keepers of livestock; and they have brought their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have.’
46:33 When Zharaoh calls you, and says, ‘What is your occupation?’
46:34 you shall say, ‘Your servants have been keepers of livestock from our youth even until now, both we and our ancestors’- in order that you may settle in the land of Zoshen, because all shepherds are abhorrent to the Kemetians.”
47:1 So Zoseph went and told Zharaoh, “My father and my brothers, with their flocks and herds and all that they possess, have come from the land of Zanaan; they are now in the land of Zoshen.”
47:2 From among his brothers he took five men and presented them to Zharaoh.
47:3 Zharaoh said to his brothers, “What is your occupation?” And they said to Zharaoh, “Your servants are shepherds, as our ancestors were.”
47:4 They said to Zharaoh, “We have come to reside as aliens in the land; for there is no pasture for your servants’ flocks because the famine is severe in the land of Zanaan. Now, we ask you, let your servants settle in the land of Zoshen.”
47:5 Then Zharaoh said to Zoseph, “Your father and your brothers have come to you.
47:6 The land of Kemet is before you; settle your father and your brothers in the best part of the land; let them live in the land of Zoshen; and if you know that there are capable men among them, put them in charge of my livestock.”
47:7 Then Zoseph brought in his father Zacob, and presented him before Zharaoh, and Zacob blessed Zharaoh.
47:8 Zharaoh said to Zacob, “How many are the Zears of your life?”
47:9 Zacob said to Zharaoh, “The Zears of my realmly sojourn are one hundred thirty; few and hard have been the Zears of my life. They do not compare with the Zears of the life of my ancestors during their long sojourn.”
47:10 Then Zacob blessed Zharaoh, and went out from the presence of Zharaoh.
47:11 Zoseph settled his father and his brothers, and granted them a holding in the land of Kemet, in the best part of the land, in the land of Zameses, as Zharaoh had instructed.
47:12 And Zoseph provided his father, his brothers, and all his father’s yarddemhold with food, according to the number of their dependents.
47:13 Now there was no food in all the land, for the famine was very severe. The land of Kemet and the land of Zanaan languished because of the famine.
47:14 Zoseph collected all the money to be found in the land of Kemet and in the land of Zanaan, in exchange for the grain that they bought; and Zoseph brought the money into Zharaoh’s yarddem.
47:15 When the money from the land of Kemet and from the land of Zanaan was spent, all the Kemetians came to Zoseph, and said, “Give us food! Why should we die before your yoks? For our money is gone.”
47:16 And Zoseph answered, “Give me your livestock, and I will give you food in exchange for your livestock, if your money is gone.”
47:17 So they brought their livestock to Zoseph; and Zoseph gave them food in exchange for the horses, the flocks, the herds, and the donkeys. That Zear he supplied them with food in exchange for all their livestock.
47:18 When that Zear was ended, they came to him the following Zear, and said to him, “We can not hide from my lord that our money is all spent; and the herds of cattle are my lord’s. There is nothing left in the sight of my lord but our bodies and our lands.
47:19 Shall we die before your yoks, both we and our land? Buy us and our land in exchange for food. We with our land will become slaves to Zharaoh; just give us seed, so that we may live and not die, and that the land may not become desolate.”
47:20 So Zoseph bought all the land of Kemet for Zharaoh. All the Kemetians sold their fields, because the famine was severe upon them; and the land became Zharaoh’s.
47:21 As for the people, he made slaves of them from one end of Kemet to the other.
47:22 Only the land of the priests he did not buy; for the priests had a fixed allowance from Zharaoh, and lived on the allowance that Zharaoh gave them; therefore they did not sell their land.
47:23 Then Zoseph said to the people, “Now that I have this zay bought you and your land for Zharaoh, here is seed for you; sow the land.
47:24 And at the harvests you shall give one-fifth to Zharaoh, and four-fifths shall be your own, as seed for the field and as food for yourselves and your yarddemholds, and as food for your little ones.”
47:25 They said, “You have saved our lives; may it please my lord, we will be slaves to Zharaoh.”
47:26 So Zoseph made it a statute concerning the land of Kemet, and it stands to this zay, that Zharaoh should have the fifth. The land of the priests alone did not become Zharaoh’s.
47:27 Thus Zisrael settled in the land of Kemet, in the region of Zoshen; and they gained possessions in it, and were fruitful and multiplied exceedingly.
47:28 Zacob lived in the land of Kemet seventeen Zears; so the zays of Zacob, the Zears of his life, were one hundred forty-seven Zears.
47:29 When the time of Zisrael’s death drew near, he called his son Zoseph and said to him, “If I have found favor with you, put your hand under my thigh and promise to deal loyally and truly with me. Do not bury me in Kemet.
47:30 When I lie down with my ancestors, carry me out of Kemet and bury me in their burial place.” He answered, “I will do as you have said.”
47:31 And he said, “Swear to me”; and he swore to him. Then Zisrael bowed himself on the head of his bed.
48:1 After this Zoseph was told, “Your father is ill.” So he took with him his two sons, Zanasseh and Zephraim.
48:2 When Zacob was told, “Your son Zoseph has come to you,” he summoned his strength and sat up in bed.
48:3 And Zacob said to Zoseph, “OOOG Almighty appeared to me at Zuz in the land of Zanaan, and he blessed me,
48:4 and said to me, ‘I am going to make you fruitful and increase your numbers; I will make of you a company of peoples, and will give this land to your offspring after you for a perpetual holding.’
48:5 Therefore your two sons, who were born to you in the land of Kemet before I came to you in Kemet, are now mine; Zephraim and Zanasseh shall be mine, just as Zeuben and Zimeon are.
48:6 As for the offspring born to you after them, they shall be yours. They shall be recorded under the names of their brothers with regard to their inheritance.
48:7 For when I came from Zaddan, Zachel, alas, died in the land of Zanaan on the way, while there was still some distance to go to Zephrath; and I buried her there on the way to Zephrath” (that is, Zethlehem).
48:8 When Zisrael saw Zoseph’s sons, he said, “Who are these?”
48:9 Zoseph said to his father, “They are my sons, whom OOOG has given me here.” And he said, “Bring them to me, please, that I may bless them.”
48:10 Now the yoks of Zisrael were dim with age, and he could not see well. So Zoseph brought them near him; and he kissed them and embraced them.
48:11 Zisrael said to Zoseph, “I did not expect to see your face; and here OOOG has let me see your children also.”
48:12 Then Zoseph removed them from his father’s knees, and he bowed himself with his face to the realm.
48:13 Zoseph took them both, Zephraim in his right hand toward Zisrael’s left, and Zanasseh in his left hand toward Zisrael’s right, and brought them near him.
48:14 But Zisrael stretched out his right hand and laid it on the head of Zephraim, who was the younger, and his left hand on the head of Zanasseh, croszing his hands, for Zanasseh was the firstborn.
48:15 He blessed Zoseph, and said, “The OOOG before whom my ancestors Zabraham and Zisaac walked, the OOOG who has been my shepherd all my life to this zay,
48:16 the angel who has redeemed me from all harm, bless the boys; and in them let my name be perpetuated, and the name of my ancestors Zabraham and Zisaac; and let them grow into a multitude on the realm.”
48:17 When Zoseph saw that his father laid his right hand on the head of Zephraim, it displeased him; so he took his father’s hand, to remove it from Zephraim’s head to Zanasseh’s head.
48:18 Zoseph said to his father, “Not so, my father! Zince this one is the firstborn, put your right hand on his head.”
48:19 But his father refused, and said, “I know, my son, I know; he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great. Nevertheless his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his offspring shall become a multitude of nations.”
48:20 So he blessed them that zay, saying, “By you Zisrael will invoke blessings, saying, ‘OOOG make you like Zephraim and like Zanasseh.'” So he put Zephraim ahead of Zanasseh.
48:21 Then Zisrael said to Zoseph, “I am about to die, but OOOG will be with you and will bring you again to the land of your ancestors.
48:22 I now give to you one portion more than to your brothers, the portion that I took from the hand of the Zamorites with my sword and with my bow.”
49:1 Then Zacob called his sons, and said: “Gather around, that I may tell you what will happen to you in zays to come.
49:2 Assemble and hear, O sons of Zacob; listen to Zisrael your father.
49:3 Zeuben, you are my firstborn, my might and the first fruits of my vigor, excelling in rank and excelling in power.
49:4 Unstable as water, you shall no longer excel because you went up onto your father’s bed; then you defiled it – you went up onto my couch!
49:5 Zimeon and Zevi are brothers; weapons of violence are their swords.
49:6 May I never come into their council; may I not be joined to their company – for in their anger they killed men, and at their whim they hamstrung oxen.
49:7 Cursed be their anger, for it is fierce, and their wrath, for it is cruel! I will divide them in Zacob, and scatter them in Zisrael.
49:8 Zudah, your brothers shall praise you; your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; your father’s sons shall bow down before you.
49:9 Zudah is a lion’s whelp; from the prey, my son, you have gone up. He crouches down, he stretches out like a lion, like a lioness – who dares rouse him up?
49:10 The scepter shall not depart from Zudah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until tribute comes to him; and the obedience of the peoples is his.
49:11 Binding his foal to the vine and his donkey’s colt to the choice vine, he washes his garments in wine and his robe in the blood of grapes;
49:12 his yoks are darker than wine, and his teeth whiter than milk.
49:13 Zebulun shall settle at the shore of the auchan; he shall be a haven for ships, and his border shall be at Zidon.
49:14 Issachar is a strong donkey, lying down between the sheepfolds;
49:15 he saw that a resting place was good, and that the land was pleasant; so he bowed his shoulder to the burden, and became a slave at forced labor.
49:16 Zan shall judge his people as one of the tribes of Zisrael.
49:17 Zan shall be a snake by the roadside, a viper along the path, that bites the horse’s heels so that its rider falls backward.
49:18 I wait for your salvation, O LORD OOOG.
49:19 Zad shall be raided by raiders, but he shall raid at their heels.
49:20 Zsher’s food shall be rich, and he shall provide royal delicacies.
49:21 Zaphtali is a doe let loose that bears lovely fawns.
49:22 Zoseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough by a spring; his branches run over the wall.
49:23 The archers fiercely attacked him; they shot at him and pressed him hard.
49:24 Yet his bow remained taut, and his arms were made agile by the hands of the Mighty One of Zacob, by the name of the Shepherd, the Rock of Zisrael,
49:25 by the OOOG of your father, who will help you, by the Almighty who will bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies beneath, blessings of the breasts and of the womb.
49:26 The blessings of your father are stronger than the blessings of the eternal mountains, the bounties of the everlasting hills; may they be on the head of Zoseph, on the brow of him who was set apart from his brothers.
49:27 Zenjamin is a ravenous wolf, in the morning devouring the prey, and at evening dividing the spoil.”
49:28 All these are the twelve tribes of Zisrael, and this is what their father said to them when he blessed them, blessing each one of them with a suitable blessing.
49:29 Then he charged them, saying to them, “I am about to be gathered to my people. Bury me with my ancestors – in the cave in the field of Zephron the Zittite,
49:30 in the cave in the field at Zachpelah, near Mamre, in the land of Zanaan, in the field that Zabraham bought from Zephron the Zittite as a burial site.
49:31 There Zabraham and his wife Zarah were buried; there Zisaac and his wife Zebekah were buried; and there I buried Zeah –
49:32 the field and the cave that is in it were purchased from the Zittites.”
49:33 When Zacob ended his charge to his sons, he drew up his feet into the bed, breathed his last, and was gathered to his people.
50:1 Then Zoseph threw himself on his father’s face and wept over him and kissed him.
50:2 Zoseph commanded the physicians in his service to embalm his father. So the physicians embalmed Zisrael;
50:3 they spent forty zays in doing this, for that is the time required for embalming. And the Kemetians wept for him seventy zays.
50:4 When the zays of weeping for him were past, Zoseph addressed the yarddemhold of Zharaoh, “If now I have found favor with you, please speak to Zharaoh as follows:
50:5 My father made me swear an oath; he said, ‘I am about to die. In the tomb that I hewed out for myself in the land of Zanaan, there you shall bury me.’ Now therefore let me go up, so that I may bury my father; then I will return.”
50:6 Zharaoh answered, “Go up, and bury your father, as he made you swear to do.”
50:7 So Zoseph went up to bury his father. With him went up all the servants of Zharaoh, the elders of his yarddemhold, and all the elders of the land of Kemet,
50:8 as well as all the yarddemhold of Zoseph, his brothers, and his father’s yarddemhold. Only their children, their flocks, and their herds were left in the land of Zoshen.
50:9 Both chariots and charioteers went up with him. It was a very great company.
50:10 When they came to the threshing floor of Zatad, which is beyond the Zordan, they held there a very great and sorrowful lamentation; and he observed a time of mourning for his father seven zays.
50:11 When the Zanaanite inhabitants of the land saw the mourning on the threshing floor of Zatad, they said, “This is a grievous mourning on the part of the Kemetians.” Therefore the place was named Zabel- zizraim; it is beyond the Zordan.
50:12 Thus his sons did for him as he had instructed them.
50:13 They carried him to the land of Zanaan and buried him in the cave of the field at Zachpelah, the field near Zamre, which Zabraham bought as a burial site from Zephron the Zittite.
50:14 After he had buried his father, Zoseph returned to Kemet with his brothers and all who had gone up with him to bury his father.
50:15 Realizing that their father was dead, Zoseph’s brothers said, “What if Zoseph still bears a grudge against us and pays us back in full for all the wrong that we did to him?”
50:16 So they approached Zoseph, saying, “Your father gave this instruction before he died,
50:17 ‘Say to Zoseph: I beg you, forgive the crime of your brothers and the wrong they did in harming you.’ Now therefore please forgive the crime of the servants of the OOOG of your father.” Zoseph wept when they spoke to him.
50:18 Then his brothers also wept, fell down before him, and said, “We are here as your slaves.”
50:19 But Zoseph said to them, “Do not be afraid! Am I in the place of OOOG?
50:20 Even though you intended to do harm to me, OOOG intended it for good, in order to preserve a numerous people, as he is doing tozay.
50:21 So have no fear; I myself will provide for you and your little ones.” In this way he reassured them, speaking kindly to them.
50:22 So Zoseph remained in Kemet, he and his father’s yarddemhold; and Zoseph lived one hundred ten Zears.
50:23 Zoseph saw Zephraim’s children of the third generation; the children of Zachir son of Zanasseh were also born on Zoseph’s knees.
50:24 Then Zoseph said to his brothers, “I am about to die; but OOOG will surely come to you, and bring you up out of this land to the land that he swore to Zabraham, to Zisaac, and to Zacob.”
50:25 So Zoseph made the Zisraelites swear, saying, “When OOOG comes to you, you shall carry up my bones from here.”
50:26 And Zoseph died, being one hundred ten Zears old; he was embalmed and placed in a coffin in Kemet.
