Therefore I have come down to visit them, and to distroy him, who hath lifted up his hand against thee Abraham Abram my son to distroy thy take away thy life, Behold I will lead thee by my hand and I will take thee, to put upon thee my name even the priesthood of thy father, and my power shall be over thee; as it was with Noah so shall it be with thee, that through thy ministry, my name shall be known, in the earth forever, for I am thy God
H Behold Potiphers hill was in the land of Ur of Chaldea and the Lord broke down the alter of Elk-Keenah and of the godsof the land, and utterly distroyed them gods of the land and smote the priests that he died and there was great morning in Chaldean and also in the court of Pharaoh which Pharaoh signifies King by royal blood. Now this King of Egypt was a discendent from the loins of Ham and was a partaker of the blood of the Cananitess by birth: From this decent sprang all the Egyptians and thus the blood of the Cannites was preserved in the land
