It is my contention that the Jews were Egyptians who are retelling the very legends we now have available to us from various Egyptian artefacts, but
in a manner to suggest they were not in fact Egyptians but a select peoples by God’s grace to which they and only they, are in receipt of his
graciousness. They in fact represent all of the varying legends surrounding the Egyptian gods which have come to light via archaeological finds.
Rather than continue on at this time with the descendants of Adam, I will jump centuries ahead to provide glaring example.
Egyptian mythology is rife with the battle fro control by the gods. In particular, Osiris has been murdered by his brother Seth and his son Horus by
Isis, seeks revenge as well as to claim the rightful heritage of Re-Atum’s (the deity emerging as the supreme god) right hand. I pick up the tale
where Isis is angered at Horus being denied same as a result of Seth’s trickery, and so she seeks revenge:
Then Isis came and approached Nemty, the ferryman, as he was sitting near his boat, after she had transformed herself into an old woman
who walked with a hobble and (wore) a small golden signet-ring on her hand. She said to him: "It is in order that you might ferry (me) across to the
Island in the Middle that I come to you, because it is for the young lad that I have come carrying this bowlful of porridge, since he has been tending
some cattle on the Island in the Middle for five days now and is hungry."
He said to her: "I have been told not to ferry any woman across." But she said to him: "It is with reference to Isis that you have been told this
which you have (just) mentioned." He said to her: "What will you give me in order that you may be ferried across to the Island in the Middle?"
Said Isis to him: "I will give you this cake." He said to her: "What good is it to me, your cake? Is it in exchange for your cake that I should
ferry you across to the Island in the Middle when I have been told not to ferry any woman across?" Then she said to him: "I will give you the
golden signet-ring which is on (my) hand." And he said to her: "Hand over the golden signet-ring." And she gave it to him. Then he ferried her
across to the Island in the Middle.
Now as she was walking under the trees, she looked and saw the Ennead sitting eating bread in the presence of the Universal Lord in his pavilion. Seth
looked and saw her when she had come closer from afar. Then she conjured by means of her magic, transforming herself into a maiden whose body was
beautiful and whose like did not exist in the entire land. Thereupon he desired her most lecherously.
Seth got right up from sitting eating bread with the Great Ennead and proceeded to overtake her, no one having seen her except himself. Then he stood
behind a sycamore tree and called to her. He said to her: "I am here with you, beautiful maiden."
And she said to him: "Respect, my great lord. As for me, I was a wife (living) with a cattleman to whom I bore a son. My husband died, and the lad
started tending his father's cattle. But then a stranger came and settled in my stable. He said thus in speaking to my son, 'I shall beat you and
confiscate your father's cattle and evict you,' said he in speaking to him. Now it is my desire to have you afford him protection."
Thereupon Seth said to her: "Is it while the son of the male is still living that the cattle are to be given to the stranger?"
And so Isis transformed herself into a kite and flew up and perched on top of an acacia tree. She called to Seth and said to him: "Be ashamed of
yourself. It is your own mouth that has said it. It is your own cleverness that has judged you. What comeback do you have now?"
And so he became ashamed and went to where Pre-Harakhti was, (still) ashamed. Then Pre-Harakhti said to him: "What's bothering you still?" Said
Seth to him: "That wicked woman has come to me again. She has tricked me again, having transformed herself into a beautiful maiden before my eyes.
She said to me, 'As for me, I was a wife (living) with a cattleman. He died, and I bore him a son, who is tending some of his father's cattle. A
stranger took lodging in my stable with my son, and I gave him meals. Now after many days following this, the visitor then said to my son, 'I shall
beat you and confiscate your father's cattle, and they will become mine,' he said in speaking to my son.' So she said to me."
Then Pre-Harakhti said to him: "And what did you say to her?" And Seth told him: "I said to her, 'Is it while the son of the male is still living
that the cattle are to be given to the stranger?' So I said to her: 'This visitor's face should be smitten with a rod, and he should be evicted and
your son put in his father's position.
Thereupon Pre-Harakhti said to him: "Now look here, it is you yourself that has judged your own self. What comeback do you have now?"
So Seth said to him: "Have Nemty, the ferryman, brought and severe punishment inflicted upon him, saying, 'Why did you let her be ferried across?'
So it shall be said to him."
Then Nemty, the ferryman, was brought before the Ennead, and the forepart of his feet removed. So Nemty abjured gold even to this day in the presence
of the Great Ennead, saying: "Gold shall be because of me an abomination unto my city."
Then the Ennead ferried across to the western tract and sat down on the mountain.
Now (afterward) at evening time Pre-Harakhti and Atum, Lord of the Two Lands, the Heliopolitan, wrote to the Ennead, saying: "What are you
doing still sitting here? As for the two youths, you will be having them finish their lifetime in the tribunal! When my letter reaches you, you shall
place the White Crown upon the head of Horus, son of Isis, and appoint him to the position of his father Osiris."
Thereupon Seth became terribly furious. And so the Ennead said to Seth: "Why have you become so furious? Isn't it in accordance with what Atum, Lord
of the Two Lands, the Heliopolitan, and Pre-Harakhti have said that (things) should be carried out?"
Then the White Crown was set upon the head of Horus, son of Isis. Seth, being very angry, let out a loud shriek before the face of this Ennead,
saying: "Is it while I am still living as his elder brother that the office is to be awarded to my younger brother?"
Then he took an oath as follows: "The White Crown shall be removed from the head of Horus, son of Isis, and he shall be thrown into the water in
order that I may contend with him or the office of Ruler."
The Biblical equivalent, II Samuel 12. David angered god by committing adultery with Bath-sheba, after which he plotted to send her husband into the
front lines of war to have him killed, after which he married her and she bore him a son. His brother Nathan approached him with the following:
And the LORD sent Nathan unto David. And he came unto him, and said unto him, There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other
The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds:
But the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children;
it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter.
And there came a traveller unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come
unto him; but took the poor man's lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him.
And David's anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As the LORD liveth, the man that hath done this thing a)shall surely
And he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity.
And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand
And I gave thee thy master's house, and thy master's wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too
little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things.
Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken
his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon.
Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy
Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto
thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun.
For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.
And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; a) thou shalt not
Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall
And Nathan departed unto his house. And the LORD struck the child that Uriah's wife bare unto David, and it was very sick.
David therefore besought God for the child; and David fasted, and went in, and lay all night upon the earth.
And the elders of his house arose, and went to him, to raise him up from the earth: but he would not, neither did he eat bread with them.
And it came to pass on the seventh day, that the child died. And the servants of David feared to tell him that the child was dead: for they said,
Behold, while the child was yet alive, we spake unto him, and he would not hearken unto our voice: how will he then vex himself, if we tell him that
the child is dead?
But when David saw that his servants whispered, David perceived that the child was dead: therefore David said unto his servants, Is the child dead?
And they said, He is dead.
Then David arose from the earth, and washed, and anointed himself, and changed his apparel, and came into the house of the LORD, and worshipped: then
he came to his own house; and when he required, they set bread before him, and he did eat.
Then said his servants unto him, What thing is this that thou hast done? thou didst fast and weep for the child, while it was alive; but when the
child was dead, thou didst rise and eat bread.
And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether GOD will be gracious to me, that the child may live?
But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.
This Egyptian story is told in two parts in The Bible, the one relative to the biblical verses above is compared as follows;
-Isis sets out to deceive Seth by turning herself into a beautiful widow.
-David is smitten by a beautiful woman, of whom he makes a widow.
-Seth eats bread before his sister Isis tricks him. David eats bread after his brother Nathan tricks him.
-Isis relays a story about a stranger stealing her son’s cattle. Nathan relays a story about a stranger stealing another’s sheep.
-Seth is angered and condemns the stranger to die. David is angered and condemns the stranger to die.
-Seth learns he is the stranger. David learns he is the stranger.
Previously the crown of lower Egypt was given to Seth. Previously the crown of lower Egypt (Ammon 12:30) was taken by David.
-Seth judged himself. David judged himself.
-The crown was restored to Horus (removed from Seth). The crown passed to the 5th son of David’s with his Hittite and adulterous wife, the
widow of Uriah, the daughter of Eliam. The first with her was killed by god, but he loved David (for now) anyway and gave him another with
Although David was in Jerusalem after having defeated the Egyptians, this Hittite couple was supposedly also coexisting harmoniously with their enemy,
a) Seth calls for vengeance “'This visitor's face should be smitten with a rod.” Pre-Harakhti acquiesced. David calls for vengeance
“the man that hath done this thing shall surely die. God acquiesced “ thou shalt not die; “
The Egyptian tales continue all through II Samuel, but, all things when relevant.
