“The Stars Also”

In the first mention of the heavenly bodies, the purpose of the Creator is clearly stated.

Genesis 1:14—19

14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

15 ‘And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth:” and it was so.

16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: He made the stars also.

17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

 

Genesis 1:14—19 reveals the fact that they were created, not only “to divide the day from the night, and to give light upon the earth”; but, they were “set for signs, and for SEASONS, and for days and years”. The Figure Polysyndeton emphasises these four purposes, and bids us single them out and consider them separately and independently. Po'ly-syn'de-ton; or, Many Ands:

 

Genesis 22:9, 11

09 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.

11 And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.

 

Joshua 7:24 And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor.

 

Luke 14:21 So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.

 

The repetition of the word "and" at the beginning of successive clauses, each independent, important, and emphatic, with no climax at the end. (Compare Aysndeton and Luke 14:13).

A-syn'-de-ton; or, No-Ands (Mark 7:21-23. Luke 14:13). The usual conjunction is omitted, so that the point to be emphasised may be quickly reached and ended with an emphatic climax (compare to Polysyndeton, and Luke 14:21).

 

Luke 14:13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:

 

They are “for SIGNS”. Hebrew ’ōth, from ’athah, to come. Signs, therefore, of something, or some One to come. Those who understand them are enlightened by them. Those who do not may well be “dismayed.”

 

Jeremiah 10:2 Thus saith the Lord, “Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.”

 

The stars are numbered and named. There are the twelve signs of the Zodiac, called “the stars” in Genesis 37:9 (eleven of which bowed down to Joseph’s the twelfth).

 

Genesis 37:9  And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

 

The word Zodiac means the degrees or steps, which mark the stages of the Sun’s path through the heavens, corresponding with the twelve months. The stars were all named by God.

 

Psalm 147:4 He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names.

 

Most of these names have been lost; but over 100 are preserved through the Arabic and Hebrew, and are used by astronomers today, though their meaning is unknown to them. Many of them are used in Scripture though the translations are somewhat speculative: e.g.;

 

 Job 9:9 Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south. ’āsh (Arcturus, R.V. the Bear; Denderah sheepfold), Kesīl (A.V. Orion), kīmāh (Plaides) and (Mazzārōh). (Margin, and R.V. the twelve signs; margin, the signs of the Zodiac)

 

Job 38 :31—32  

31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?

32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?

 

Compare 2 Kings 23:5 And he put down the idolatrous priests, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that burned incense unto Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven.

 

’āsh (Arcturus with her sons, R.V. the bear with her train, both versions being incorrect as to the name).

 

Isaiah 13:10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

 

Amos 5:8 Seek Him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The Lord is His name:

 

These names and the twelve “signs” go back to the foundation of this fallen world we are now on. (2 Peter 3:5—6). Jewish tradition, preserved by Josephus assures us that this Bible Astronomy was invented by Jehovah;: See Denderah

http://www.godsplan.org.uk/jehovah%27sword.htm ; and given to…

 

Adam, (The first man created by God, (Gen 2:7)

Seth Second son after Abel who was murdered by Cain (Gen 4: 8) (Josephus Book 1 Chapter 2)

Enoch (Hebrews 11:5) http://www.godsplan.org.uk/books.htm

 

We see evidence of it as early Genesis 11:4 where we read of the Tower of Babel having “his top with the heavens”. There is nothing about the wrongly supplied italics “may reach unto”. The words, doubtless, refer to the signs of the Zodiac, pictured at the top of the Tower, like the Zodiacs in the Temples of Denderah and Esneh in Egypt. http://www.mazzaroth.com/ChapterOne/TempleOfEsneh.htm

The Babylonian “Creation Tablets” refer to them, though their primitive meaning had been either corrupted or lost. It is the same with the Greek mythology, which is a corruption of primitive truth which had been lost and perverted. We have to remember that our written Scriptures which we have today and began with Moses at Mt Sinai, say in 1490 B.C.: and thus for more than 2,500 years, the revelation of the hope which God gave in Genesis 3:15 was preserved in the naming of the stars, and their grouping in Signs and Constellations.  

 

Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee [Satan] and the woman, [Christ] and between thy seed [Satan's] and her seed; [Christ's] it shall bruise thy head, [Satan] and thou shalt bruise His heel [Christ].

 

http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Orion.htm  These groupings are quite arbitrary. There is nothing in the position of the stars to suggest the pictures originally drawn around them. The Signs and Constellations were first designed and named; then the pictures were drawn around them respectively. Thus the TRUTH was enshrined and written in the heavens where no human hand could touch it. In later years, when Israel came into the possession of the written “Scriptures of TRUTH”, there was no longer any need for the more ancient writing in the heavens. Hence, the original teaching gradually faded away, and the heathen, out of the morsel they had heard by tradition, evolved their cosmogonies (Cosmogony (or cosmogony) is any theory concerning the coming into existence (or origin) of either the cosmos (or universe), or the so-called reality of sentient beings); and mythologies (Mythology can refer either to the collected myths of a group of people—their body of stories which they tell to explain nature, history, and customs).

 

Psalm 19 contains a vivid reference to these two Books of Revelation. That is why there is the very sudden change of subject at verse 7; a change which still perplexes and baffles all the skill of commentators. The teaching is preserved in the structure of the Psalm where we have; http://www.godsplan.org.uk/jehovah%27sword.htm

 

A | verses 1—4 The Heavens.

    B |verses 4—6 “In them, the sun”.

A| verses 7—10 The Scriptures.

  B | verses 11—14 “In them Thy servant”.

 

In this structure every line emphasises the elaboration of the design: for, while, in the first half, all the terms are literary, in the latter half they are all astronomical, thus welding the two portions of the Psalm into one harmonious whole. For the meaning of the words, reference must be made to the Psalm itself.

 

Psalm 19 King James Version (KJV)

01 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handywork.

02 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

03 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

04 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath He set a tabernacle for the sun,

05 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

06 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

 

07 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

08 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

09 The fear [reverence] of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

 

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

 

We can only note here that the first part does not refer to the wonders of creation, but to the eloquence of its revelation and teaching: they “declare”, tell, or narrate (Gen 24:66, Psalm 71:15), they “utter speech” but without words

 

Genesis 24:66 And the servant told Isaac all things that he had done.

 

Psalm 71:15 My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.

 

They “utter speech”, but without words (omit “where” in v3); Hebrew = they “show forth”, exhibit…

 

Genesis 3:11 And He said, “Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?”

 

Psalm 97:6 The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the people see His glory.

 

Psalm 111:6 He hath shewed His people the power of His works, that He may give them the heritage of the heathen.

 

… they [the Stars] prophesy “day by day”, “night by night”. The question is:

·        What do they prophesy?

·        What knowledge do they show forth?

·        What glory do they tell of?

 

The answer is Genesis 3:15 (The Fall). And I will put enmity between thee [Satan] and the woman, [Christ] and between thy seed [Satan's] and her seed; [Christ's] it shall bruise thy head, [Satan] and thou shalt bruise His heel [Christ].

 

The One Great Central TRUTH of all Prophecy—The Coming of One, [Christ] Who, though He should suffer, should in the end CRUSH the head of the Old Serpent, the Devil.

·        But where are we to open this book?

·        Where are we to break into this circle of the Zodiacal signs?

Through the “Precession of the Equinoxes” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/precessionoftheequinoxes.htm the sun gradually shifts its position a little each year, until in about every 2000 years it begins the year in a different sign. This was foreseen; and it was also foreseen that succeeding generations would not know when and where the sun began its course, and where the teaching of this “Heavenly Book” commenced, and where we were to open its first pages.

Hence the “Sphinx” was designed as a memorial. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/sphinx.htm It has the head of a woman [Virgo] and the body and tail of a Lion [of Judah (Christ)], to tell us that this Book written in the Heavens, began with the sign “VIRGO” and will end with the sign “LEO” The word “Sphinx” is from the Greek Sphingo, and means to join; because it binds together the two ends of this circle of the heavens.

The number of the Signs is twelve, and is the number of governmental perfection or “rule” http://levendwater.org/companion/append10.html .

 

Genesis 1:18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

 

They are divided into three books of our chapters (or signs) each: Twelve being the product of 3X4, i.e. of Divine TRUTH working in the Heavens and in the earth (see App 10). Each book therefore, consists of four signs: and these are all arranged, by structure, in exactly the same way. Each is an introversion (introversion is a central dimension of human personality theories). Thus we have the three books. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/jehovah%27sword.htm

 

 First Book. The Redeemer. (His first Coming).  Second Book. The Redeemed. (His work and its results). Third Book. The Redeemer. (His Second Coming).

A |VIRGO. The Prophecy of the promised seed.      C | CAPRICORNUS. The prophecy of deliverance.                 E |TAURUS. The prophecy of coming judgement.

   B | SCORPIO. The Redeemer’s conflict.                 D | PISCES. Results of work enjoyed.                                     F | CANCER. The Redeemer’s possession safe.

A |SAGITTARIUS. The prophecy fulfilled.             C | ARIES. The prophesied deliverance fulfilled.                      E | LEO. The prophecy of triumph fulfilled.

 

Each of the four chapters in each of these three Books consists of three sections: and each section is represented by a Constellation. There are thus thirty-six (3X12) Constellations, which, with the twelve Signs, make forty-eight (4 X 12) in all. They may thus be set forth:

It will be noted that the modern names are used, but only for the purposes of readier identification. Some of these names were given in ignorance, by those who had lost the primitive signification of the Twelve Signs, and the thirty-six Constellations. The Hebrew and Arabic names of these, and of the principal stars contained in them, are full of TRUTH, and eloquent in their teaching. Thus:

VIRGO (The Virgin). Here we have the star Al Zimacch. Hebrew Zemech, = the branch.

 

Isaiah 4:2 In that day shall the branch of the Lord be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel.

 

Jeremiah 23:5—6

5 “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.’

6 “In His days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is His name whereby He shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness.’”

 

Zechariah 3:8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the Branch.

 

Zechariah 6:12 And speak unto him, saying, “Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts”, saying, “Behold the man whose name is The Branch; and He shall grow up out of His place, and He shall build the temple of the Lord:”

(Egyptian Shes-nu = the desired son).

The Hebrew Dōb = a bear. So Arabic Dub, and Persian Deeb or Dob. Hence the mistake. The brightest star is Al riccaba = the turned or ridden on, denoting it as the Polar star. The Greeks called it Kunosoura = Cynosure, but this word is Accadian. An-nas-sur-ra = high in rising; or high in heavenly position. The next bright star is Kochab = waiting Him Who cometh.

 

URSA MAJOR. The great Bear = the Fold and the Flock.

Obadiah 17--19

17 But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.

18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the Lord hath spoken it.

19 And they of the south shall possess the mount of Esau; and they of the plain the Philistines: and they shall possess the fields of Ephraim, and the fields of Samaria: and Benjamin shall possess Gilead.

 

In Job 9:9 Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.

 

And Job 38:31—32

31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?

32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?

 

It is called ’Ash and her offspring. A.V. = Arcturus and her sons. R.V. = Bear and his train (margin, sons).Arabs still call it Al Naish or Annaish = the assembled together as in a fold.. The brightest star is Dubhe = a flock, which gives its name to the two constellations. The next is Merach = the flock (Arabic) = purchased. The next is Phaeda or Pharda = numbered or guarded.

 

Psalm 147:4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.

 

Another is called Benet Naish = daughters of the assembly. Another Al Kaid = the assembled. Many other cognate names.

 

Cp Ezekiel 34:12—16

12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.

13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.

14 I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.

15 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord God.

16 I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.

 

ARGO. The Ship. The Pilgrims safe at home. In the Egyptian Planisphere there are two ships (like the two folds).They occupy one half of the south meridians. The brightest star is Canopus = the possession of Him Who cometh. Other names are Sephina = the multitude. Tureis = the possession. Asmidiska = the released who travel &c.

 

See Jeremiah 30:10—11

10 Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the Lord; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.

11 For I am with thee, saith the Lord, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet I will not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.

 

Isaiah 60:4—9

4 Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.

5 Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.

6 The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall shew forth the praises of the Lord.

7 All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee: they shall come up with acceptance on Mine altar, and I will glorify the house of My glory.

8 Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?

9 Surely the isles shall wait for Me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the Lord thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because He hath glorified thee.

LEO. The Lion.(of Judah) Messiah’s consummated triumph. In the Zodiac of Denderah it is Pi Mentikeon =  the pouring out (of Divine Wrath). The three constellations crystalize the TRUTH:

1.      Hydra = the old serpent destroyed.

2.      Crater = the cup of wrath poured out on him.

3.      Corvus = the bird of prey devouring him.

The Denderah picture exhibits all four in one. The Syriac name is Aryo = the rending lion. Arabic Al Asad = the lion leaping forth as a flame. The brightest star is Regulus = treading underfoot (as pictured). The next is Dencabola = the Judge or Lord Who cometh. The next is Al Giebha = the exaltation. Another is Zosma = shining forth. All the others are cognate.

 

Genesis 49: 8—9

 8 Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee.

 9 Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, My son, thou art gone up: He stooped down, He couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse Him up?

 

Numbers 24:8—9

8 God brought Him forth out of Egypt; He hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: He shall eat up the nations His enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows.

9 He couched, He lay down as a lion, and as a great lion: who shall stir Him up? Blessed is He that blesseth thee, and cursed is he that curseth thee.

 

Amos 3:4, 8.

4. Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing?

8 The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord God hath spoken, who can but prophesy?

 

Isaiah 42: 13 The Lord shall go forth as a mighty man, He shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: He shall cry, yea, roar; He shall prevail against his enemies.

 

HYDRA. The Old serpent. Hydra = he is abhorred. The brightest star is Cor Hydra = the heart of Hydra. The ancient name is Al phard = the put away. Another is Al Drian = the abhorred. Another is Minchar al Sugia = the piercing of the deceiver.

 

CRATER. The Cup (of wrath poured out).

Psalm 75:8 For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and He poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.

Psalm 11:6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.

Revelation 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

Revelation 16:19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.

The constellation has thirteen stars Cp Appendix 10 Thirteen.  Denotes rebellion, apostasy, defection, dis-integration, revolution, &c.  The first occurrence fixes this (Gen. 14:4); and the second confirms it (Gen. 17:25).  It, and its multiples, are seen in all numbers, and in the Gematria (see above) of all names and passages that are associated with rebellion, &c.

Genesis 14:4 Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.

Genesis 17:25 And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.

 

CORVUS. The Raven. The birds of prey devouring. The name in the Zodiac of Denderah, Her-na = the enemy breaking up. There are nine stars (See App10) Nine.  Denotes Finality of judgment.  It is 3x3, the product of 989 Divine completeness.  The number nine, or its factors or multiples, is seen in all cases when judgment is the subject.

The brightest star is Chiba = accursed. Numbers 23:8 How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, whom the Lord hath not defied?

Another is Minchar al Goreb =the raven tearing to pieces.

 

Thus end the scriptures of the heavens

This is the story they tell forth. This is the “speech” they “utter”. This is the “knowledge” they “shew” forth. There is no articulate speech or voice; and no words are heard; but, their sayings have gone out into all the world.

 

Psalm19:1—6

1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath He set a tabernacle for the sun,

5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

http://www.godsplan.org.uk/jehovah'sword_files/image002.jpgThey are “FOR SEASONS”.

Not only are the stars made for signs (’othoth, from the root ’āthāh = to come), but for Seasons. These are not the four seasons of the year, but of cycles of time.

The Figure Polysyndeton (see App 6) http://levendwater.org/companion/index_companion.html  In Genesis 1:14 emphasises this: “and for seasons, and for day, and years”. The word means appointed times.

Cp Genesis 17:21

Genesis 18:14

Genesis 21:2

Thus the sun, moon and stars are for “signs” (things to come), and for “seasons” (appointed times).

There are no less than ten of these cycles, all of them different; not concentric, but yet all of them coinciding at creation, but never since: like a number of hoops of different sizes hanging from a nail. This indicates that they must have had a given simultaneous start.

 

1.      The cycle of 24 hours for the day, an evening and morning.

2.      The revolution of the moon around the earth.

3.      The lunar cycle, which began at the same moment as the solar cycle.

4.      The daily revolution of the Sun, which places him at the meridian at noon each day.

5.      The Solar Cycle, coinciding with the first of seven years of lunar motion and repeating itself every 365 days.

6.      The beginning of a Week of seven days on the first day of the week, first month of the first year of the first solar   cycle.

7.      The first Eclipse of a cycle of eighteen years and eleven days, to which the ancient astronomers gave the name of Saros;  each Saros              containing an average of seventy eclipses, divided into two portions of 594 years and 666 years, making together 1,260 years .

8.      Besides these, there is the period of the Heliacal risings of Sirius, in a cycle of 162 Years.

9.      The transits of Venus.

         10.And the grand cycle known as the Precession of the Equinoxes.

 

All these combine and unite in indicating that the chronology of Archbishop Usher was substantially correct. And this proves that the inflated chronology of modern historians and theologians is entirely un-scientific, being the hypothesis of men who dabbled in things outside their own sphere, and of which they were incompetent to form a correct judgement
