a reply to: Seede It is in the OP dude. The War Scroll quotes it verbatim also with sons of Sheth instead of Shethites. Book of Numbers 24:17...and all the territory of all the Shethites. It is even in the KJV and the Good News translation, the CEV, NRSV, and NIV. And the Dead Sea Scrolls, Septuagint and Masoretic Tanakh. Probably the Vulgate too. What "library" or Bible are you using?
I did another search and resorted to the Jewish Time line Encyclopedia as well as the Blackwell Dictionary of Judaica. I also double checked sixteen Gentile and the JPS translations and find no word such as Shethites.
Now if you mean Seth or Sheit who lived 130 After Adam to 1042 After Adam then you would be correct. But as you must understand you are wrong and cannot produce the word Shethites. There are some bibles that use the word Sheth and several that use the word tumult as a replacement for Seth. Once again there is no word in the scriptures that use the word Shethites. I believe that was the original claim. Please give your references.
