Preface   The   Second  Commonwealth  under  Ezon  and   Nebimish
necessitated  an  Arammaic translation  of  the  Scriptures,  the
targum, as Israel had forgotten Hebrew.  The whole history of the
Israelites during the Persian rule is unknown.

Exposure to Hellinestic civilization produced the Septuagint
translation  to  Islam produced an Arabic translation,  when  the
great  majority of the Jewish people came under the  scepture  of
Moslem  rulers.    Mendekssolm  translated  the  scriptures  into
German,  as  most  of the Jews in Europe spoke a  German  dialect
(what year?)

Beginning about 1866,  Jews immigrated to the United States,
until  by  1916 the greatest number of Jews were concentrated  in
the U.S., followed by Russia.

over all the earth,  and over every creeping thing that  creepeth
upon the earth.”

image of God created He Him; male and female created He them.

Gen.   1:28   And God blessed them;  and God said unto them;
“Be fruitful,  and multiply,  and replenish the earth, and subdue
it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the foul

Gen.   2:8-14  “And the Lord God planted a garden  eastward,
in Eden; and there He put the man whom He had formed.”

Gen.   2:9  “And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow
every tree that is pleasant to the sight,  and good for food; the
tree  of life also in the midst of a garden,  and the tree of the
knowledge of good and evil.”

Gen.   2:10   “And  a river went out of Eden  to  water  the
garden; and from thence it was parted, and became four heads.”

Gen.   2:11   “The name of the first is Pishon;  that is  it
which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;”

Gen.   2:12   “and the gold of that land is good;  there  is
bdellium and the onyx stone.”

Gen.   2:13  “And the name of the second river is Gihon, the
same is it that compasseth the whole land of Cush.”

Gen.  2:14  “And the name of the third river is Tigris; that
is  it  which goeth toward the East of Asshur.   And  the  fourth
river is the Euphrates.”

of the field which the Lord God had made.   And he said unto  the
woman:  “Yea, hath God said:  Ye shall not eat of any tree of the

Gen.   3:2-16  “And the woman said unto the serpent: “Of the
fruit of the trees of the garden may we eat;”

Gen.   3:3   “but  of the fruit of the tree which is in  the
midst  of the garden,  God hath said:   Ye shall not eat  of  it,
neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.”

Gen.   3:4  “And the serpent said unto the woman:   Ye shall
not surely die;”

Gen.   3:5   “for  God  doth  know that in the  day  ye  eat
thereof,  then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as God,
knowing goodand evil.”

Gen.   3:6   “And when the woman saw that the tree was  good
for  food,  and that it was a delight to the eyes,  and that  the
tree  was to be desiredto make one wise,  she took of  the  fruit
thereof,  and  did eat;  and she gave also unto her husband  with
her, and he did eat.”

Gen.   3:7  “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they
knew  that they were naked;  and they sewed fig-leaves  together,
and made themselves girdles.”

Gen.  3:8  “And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking
into  the garden toward the cool of the day;  and the man and his
wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the
trees of the garden.”

Gen.   3:9  “And the Lord God called unto the man,  and said
unto him:  “Where art thou?”

Gen.  3:10  “And he said:  “I heard Thy voice in the garden,
and I was afraid, because I was naked: and I hid myself.”

Gen.   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?”

Gen.   3:12  “And the man said:  “The woman whom Thou gavest
to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.”

Gen.  3:13  “And the Lord God said unto the woman:  “What is
this  thou  hast  done?”   And  the  woman  said:   “The  serpent
beguilded me, and I did eat.”

Gen.   3:14   “And  the  Lord God  said  unto  the  serpent:
“Because  thou  hast done this,  cursed art thou from  among  all
cattle,  and  from among all beasts of the field;  upon thy belly
shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life.”

Gen.   3:15   “And  I will put enmity between thee  and  the
woman,  and between thy seed and her seed;  they shall bruise thy
head, and thou shalt bruise their heel.”

Gen.   3:16   “Unto  the woman he  said:   “I  will  greatly
multiply thy pain and thy travail, in pain thou shalt bring forth
children;  and  thy desire shall be to thy husband,  and he shall
rule over thee.”

Gen.   3:21-24  “And the Lord God made for Adam and for  his
wife, garments of skins, and clothed them.”

Gen.   3:22   “And the Lord God said:   “Behold,  the man is
become as one of us,  to know good and evil; and now, lest he put
forth his hand,  and take also of the tree of life,  and eat, and
live for ever.”

Gen.   3:23  “Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the
garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.”

Gen.   3:24  “So He drove out the man;  and He placed at the
East  of the garden of Eden the cherubim,  and the flaming  sword
which turned every way, to keep the way to the tree of life.”

Gen.  4:2-5  “And again she bore his brother Abel.  And Abel
was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.”

Gen.   4:3   “And in process of time it came to  pass,  that
Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord

Gen.   4:4  “And Abel,  he also brought of the firstlings of
his flock and of the fat thereof.   And the Lord had respect unto
Abel and to his offering ;”

Gen.   4:5   “but unto Cain and to his offering He  had  not
respect .  And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.”
