83. Concerning the King of the ISHMAELITES
And therefore the children of ISHMAEL became kings over TEREB, and over ḲEBEṬ, and over NB, and SBA, and KUERGUE, and KF, and MK, and MRN, and FNḲN, and ARSBN, and LB, and MASE‛A, for they were the seed of SHEM. And ISAAC reigned over JUDAH and over AMRWN, and over KṬWN, and YBSWN, and FRZWN, and EWWN, and KḲDWN, and RMY, and ANṢKY (ANTIOCHIA), and SRY (SYRIA), and ARMENIA, and FELESṬEM (PALESTINE), and ETHIOPIA, and EDOM, and PHILISTIA, and YB, and AMALEK, and PHRYGIA, and BABYLON, and YNNESṬ, and EBRYAST. For as God sware He gave all kingdoms to the seed of SHEM, and an exalted throne and dominion to the seed of SHEM, even as his father NOAH, by the word of God, blessed his son SHEM, saying, "Be lord to thy brethren and reign over them." And this that he said had reference to the Redeemer, the King of us all, JESUS CHRIST the King of heaven and earth, Who magnifieth kings, and Who when He pleaseth abrogateth their power; for unto Him belong power and dominion over all created things for ever and ever. Amen.
