    Joshua 10:

    11 And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that יְהֹוָה cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.

    12 Then spake Joshua to יְהֹוָה in the day when יְהֹוָה delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.

    13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.

    14 And there was no day like that before it or after it, that יְהֹוָה hearkened unto the voice of a man: for יְהֹוָה fought for Israel.



    Jasher 83:
    63. And when they were smiting, the day was declining toward evening, and Joshua said in the sight of all the people, sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon, and thou moon in the valley of Ajalon, until the nation shall have revenged itself upon its enemies.
    64. And the Lord hearkened to the voice of Joshua, and the sun stood still in the midst of the heavens, and it stood still six and thirty moments,* and the moon also stood still and hastened not to go down a whole day.
    65. And there was no day like that, before it or after it, that the Lord hearkened to the voice of a man, for the Lord fought for Israel.

    41. That was the time they made an idol in the form of a calf (Molek). They brought sacrifices to it and reveled in what their own hands had made.

    42. But God turned away from them and gave them over to the worship of the sun, moon and stars. This agrees with what is written in the book of the prophets: “ ‘Did you bring me sacrifices and offerings forty years in the wilderness, people of Israel?

    43. You have taken up the tabernacle of Molek and the star of your god Rephan, the idols you made to worship. Therefore I will send you into exile’[fn] beyond Babylon.

    Chapter 17

    1 And they took and brought me to a place in which those who were there were like flaming fire,
    2 and, when they wished, they appeared as men. And they brought me to the place of darkness, and to a mountain the point of whose summit reached to heaven.
    3 And I saw the places of the luminaries and the treasuries of the stars and of the thunder and in the uttermost depths, where were
    4 a fiery bow and arrows and their quiver, and a fiery sword and all the lightnings. And they took
    5 me to the living waters, and to the fire of the west, which receives every setting of the sun. And I came to a river of fire in which the fire flows like water and discharges itself into the great sea towards
    6 the west. I saw the great rivers and came to the great river and to the great darkness, and went
    7 to the place where no flesh walks. I saw the mountains of the darkness of winter and the place
    8 whence all the waters of the deep flow. I saw the mouths of all the rivers of the earth and the mouth of the deep.

    Chapter 18

    1 I saw the treasuries of all the winds: I saw how He had furnished with them the whole creation
    2 and the firm foundations of the earth. And I saw the corner-stone of the earth: I saw the four
    3 winds which bear [the earth and] the firmament of the heaven. And I saw how the winds stretch out the vaults of heaven, and have their station between heaven and earth: these are the pillars
    4 of the heaven. I saw the winds of heaven which turn and bring the circumference of the sun and
    5 all the stars to their setting. I saw the winds on the earth carrying the clouds: I saw the paths
    6 of the angels. I saw at the end of the earth the firmament of the heaven above. And I proceeded and saw a place which burns day and night, where there are seven mountains of magnificent stones,
    7 three towards the east, and three towards the south. And as for those towards the east, was of coloured stone, and one of pearl, and one of jacinth, and those towards the south of red stone.
    8 But the middle one reached to heaven like the throne of God, of alabaster, and the summit of the
    9,10 throne was of sapphire. And I saw a flaming fire. And beyond these mountains Is a region the end of the great earth: there the heavens were completed.
    11 And I saw a deep abyss, with columns of heavenly fire, and among them I saw columns of fire fall, which were beyond measure alike towards
    12 the height and towards the depth. And beyond that abyss I saw a place which had no firmament of the heaven above, and no firmly founded earth beneath it: there was no water upon it, and no
    13 birds, but it was a waste and horrible place. I saw there seven stars like great burning mountains,
    14 and to me, when I inquired regarding them, The angel said: 'This place is the end of heaven and earth: this has become a prison for the stars and the host of heaven.
    15 And the stars which roll over the fire are they which have transgressed the commandment of the Lord in the beginning of
    16 their rising, because they did not come forth at their appointed times. And He was wroth with them, and bound them till the time when their guilt should be consummated (even) for ten thousand years.'

    Chapter 19

    1 And Uriel said to me: 'Here shall stand the angels who have connected themselves with women, and their spirits assuming many different forms are defiling mankind and shall lead them astray into sacrificing to demons as gods, (here shall they stand,) till the day of the great judgement in
    2 which they shall be judged till they are made an end of. And the women also of the angels who
    3 went astray shall become sirens.' And I, Enoch, alone saw the vision, the ends of all things: and no man shall see as I have seen.


    Chapter 20

    1,2 And these are the names of the holy angels who watch. Uriel, one of the holy angels, who is
    3 over the world and over TartarusRaphael, one of the holy angels, who is over the spirits of men.
    4,5 Raguel, one of the holy angels who takes vengeance on the world of the luminaries. Michael, one
    6 of the holy angels, to wit, he that is set over the best part of mankind and over chaosSaraqael,
    7 one of the holy angels, who is set over the spirits, who sin in the spirit. Gabriel, one of the holy
    8 angels, who is over Paradise and the serpents and the CherubimRemiel, one of the holy angels, whom God set over those who rise.

    Chapter 21

    1,2 And I proceeded to where things were chaotic. And I saw there something horrible: I saw neither
    3 a heaven above nor a firmly founded earth, but a place chaotic and horrible. And there I saw
    seven stars of the heaven bound together in it, like great mountains and burning with fire. Then
    5 I said: 'For what sin are they bound, and on what account have they been cast in hither?' Then said Uriel, one of the holy angels, who was with me, and was chief over them, and said: 'Enoch, why
    6 dost thou ask, and why art thou eager for the truth? These are of the number of the stars of heaven, which have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and are bound here till ten thousand years,
    7 the time entailed by their sins, are consummated.' And from thence I went to another place, which was still more horrible than the former, and I saw a horrible thing: a great fire there which burnt and blazed, and the place was cleft as far as the abyss, being full of great descending columns of
    8 fire: neither its extent or magnitude could I see, nor could I conjecture. Then I said: 'How
    9 fearful is the place and how terrible to look upon!' Then Uriel answered me, one of the holy angels who was with me, and said unto me: 'Enoch, why hast thou such fear and affright?' And
    10 I answered: 'Because of this fearful place, and because of the spectacle of the pain.' And he said unto me: 'This place is the prison of the angels, and here they will be imprisoned for ever.'



    There are three HOLLOW PLACES:

    ('These three have been made that the spirits of the dead might be separated)

    • the spirits of the righteous, in which there is the bright spring of water. 
    • the spirits of the sinners when they die and are buried in the earth and judgement has not been executed on them in their lifetime. 
    • for the spirits of those who make their suit who make disclosures concerning their destruction, when they were slain in the days of the sinners (Flood)

    Chapter 22

    1 And thence I went to another place, and he mountain [and] of hard rock.
    2 And there was in it four hollow places, deep and wide and very smooth. How smooth are the hollow places and deep and dark to look at.
    3 Then Raphael answered, one of the holy angels who was with me, and said unto me: 'These hollow places have been created for this very purpose, that the spirits of the souls of the dead should
    4 assemble therein, yea that all the souls of the children of men should assemble here. And these places have been made to receive them till the day of their judgement and till their appointed period [till the period appointed], till the great judgement (comes) upon them.' I saw (the spirit of) a dead man making suit,
    5 and his voice went forth to heaven and made suit. And I asked Raphael the angel who was
    6 with me, and I said unto him: 'This spirit which maketh suit, whose is it, whose voice goeth forth and maketh suit to heaven ?'
    7 And he answered me saying: 'This is the spirit which went forth from Abel, whom his brother Cain slew, and he makes his suit against him till his seed is destroyed from the face of the earth, and his seed is annihilated from amongst the seed of men.'


    8 Then I asked regarding it, and regarding all the hollow places: 'Why is one separated from the other?'

    9 And he answered me and said unto me: 'These three have been made that the spirits of the dead might be separated. And such a division has been make (for) the spirits of the righteous, in which there is the bright spring of
    10 water. 


    And such has been made for sinners when they die and are buried in the earth and judgement has not been executed on them in their
    11 lifetime. Here their spirits shall be set apart in this great pain till the great day of judgement and punishment and torment of those who curse for ever and retribution for their spirits.


    12 He shall bind them for ever. And such a division has been made for the spirits of those who make their suit, who make disclosures concerning their destruction, when they were slain in the days
    13 of the sinners. Such has been made for the spirits of men who were not righteous but sinners, who were complete in transgression, and of the transgressors they shall be companions: but their spirits shall not be slain in the day of judgement nor shall they be raised from thence.'

    14 The I blessed the Lord of glory and said: 'Blessed be my Lord, the Lord of righteousness, who ruleth for ever.'

    Chapter 23

    1,2 From thence I went to another place to the west of the ends of the earth. And I saw a burning
    3 fire which ran without resting, and paused not from its course day or night but (ran) regularly. And
    4 I asked saying: 'What is this which rests not?' Then Raguel, one of the holy angels who was with me, answered me and said unto me: 'This course of fire which thou hast seen is the fire in the west which persecutes all the luminaries of heaven.'

    Chapter 24

    1 And from thence I went to another place of the earth, and he showed me a mountain range of
    2 fire which burnt day and night. And I went beyond it and saw seven magnificent mountains all differing each from the other, and the stones (thereof) were magnificent and beautiful, magnificent as a whole, of glorious appearance and fair exterior: three towards the east, one founded on the other, and three towards the south, one upon the other, and deep rough ravines, no one of which
    3 joined with any other. And the seventh mountain was in the midst of these, and it excelled them
    4 in height, resembling the seat of a throne: and fragrant trees encircled the throne. And amongst them was a tree such as I had never yet smelt, neither was any amongst them nor were others like it: it had a fragrance beyond all fragrance, and its leaves and blooms and wood wither not for ever:
    5 and its fruit is beautiful, and its fruit and resembles the dates of a palm. Then I said: 'How beautiful is this tree, and fragrant, and its leaves are fair, and its blooms very delightful in appearance.'
    6 Then answered Michael, one of the holy and honoured angels who was with me, and was their leader.

    Chapter 25

    1 And he said unto me: 'Enoch, why dost thou ask me regarding the fragrance of the tree,
    2 and why dost thou wish to learn the truth?' Then I answered him saying: 'I wish to
    3 know about everything, but especially about this tree.' And he answered saying: 'This high mountain which thou hast seen, whose summit is like the throne of God, is His throne, where the Holy Great One, the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King, will sit, when He shall come down to visit
    4 the earth with goodness. And as for this fragrant tree no mortal is permitted to touch it till the great judgement, when He shall take vengeance on all and bring (everything) to its consummation
    5 for ever. It shall then be given to the righteous and holy. Its fruit shall be for food to the elect: it shall be transplanted to the holy place, to the temple of the Lord, the Eternal King.

    6 Then shall they rejoice with joy and be glad,
    And into the holy place shall they enter;
    And its fragrance shall be in their bones,
    And they shall live a long life on earth, Such as thy fathers lived:

    And in their days shall no sorrow or plague Or torment or calamity touch them.'

    7 Then blessed I the God of Glory, the Eternal King, who hath prepared such things for the righteous, and hath created them and promised to give to them.

    Chapter 26

    1 And I went from thence to the middle of the earth, and I saw a blessed place in which there were
    2 trees with branches abiding and blooming [of a dismembered tree]. And there I saw a holy mountain,
    3 and underneath the mountain to the east there was a stream and it flowed towards the south. And I saw towards the east another mountain higher than this, and between them a deep and narrow
    4 ravine: in it also ran a stream underneath the mountain. And to the west thereof there was another mountain, lower than the former and of small elevation, and a ravine deep and dry between them: and another deep and dry ravine was at the extremities of the three mountains.
    5 And all the ravines were deep rand narrow, (being formed) of hard rock, and trees were not planted upon
    6 them. And I marveled at the rocks, and I marveled at the ravine, yea, I marveled very much.

    Chapter 27

    1 Then said I: 'For what object is this blessed land, which is entirely filled with trees, and this
    2 accursed valley between?' Then Uriel, one of the holy angels who was with me, answered and said: 'This accursed valley is for those who are accursed for ever: Here shall all the accursed be gathered together who utter with their lips against the Lord unseemly words and of His glory speak hard things. Here shall they be gathered together, and here
    3 shall be their place of judgement. In the last days there shall be upon them the spectacle of righteous judgement in the presence of the righteous for ever: here shall the merciful bless the Lord of glory, the Eternal King.
    4 In the days of judgement over the former, they shall bless Him for the mercy in accordance with
    5 which He has assigned them (their lot).' Then I blessed the Lord of Glory and set forth His glory and lauded Him gloriously.

    Chapter 28

    1 And thence I went towards the east, into the midst of the mountain range of the desert, and
    2 I saw a wilderness and it was solitary, full of trees and plants. And water gushed forth from
    3 above. Rushing like a copious watercourse [which flowed] towards the north-west it caused clouds and dew to ascend on every side.

    Chapter 29

    1 And thence I went to another place in the desert, and approached to the east of this mountain range.
    2 And there I saw aromatic trees exhaling the fragrance of frankincense and myrrh, and the trees also were similar to the almond tree.

    Chapter 30

    1,2 And beyond these, I went afar to the east, and I saw another place, a valley (full) of water. And
    3 therein there was a tree, the colour (?) of fragrant trees such as the mastic. And on the sides of those valleys I saw fragrant cinnamon. And beyond these I proceeded to the east.

    Chapter 31

    1 And I saw other mountains, and amongst them were groves of trees, and there flowed forth from
    2 them nectar, which is named sarara and galbanum. And beyond these mountains I saw another mountain to the east of the ends of the earth, whereon were aloe-trees, and all the trees were full
    3 of stacte, being like almond-trees. And when one burnt it, it smelt sweeter than any fragrant odour.

    Chapter 32

    1 And after these fragrant odours, as I looked towards the north over the mountains I saw seven mountains full of choice nard and fragrant trees and cinnamon and pepper.
    2 And thence I went over the summits of all these mountains, far towards the east of the earth, and passed above the Erythraean sea and went far from it, and passed over the angel Zotiel. And I came to the Garden of Righteousness,
    3 I and from afar off trees more numerous than I these trees and great-two trees there, very great, beautiful, and glorious, and magnificent, and the tree of knowledge, whose holy fruit they eat and know great wisdom.
    4 That tree is in height like the fir, and its leaves are like (those of) the Carob tree: and its fruit
    5 is like the clusters of the vine, very beautiful: and the fragrance of the tree penetrates afar. Then
    6 I said: 'How beautiful is the tree, and how attractive is its look!' Then Raphael the holy angel, who was with me, answered me and said: 'This is the tree of wisdom, of which thy father old (in years) and thy aged mother, who were before thee, have eaten, and they learnt wisdom and their eyes were opened, and they knew that they were naked and they were driven out of the garden.'

    Chapter 33

    1 And from thence I went to the ends of the earth and saw there great beasts, and each differed from the other; and (I saw) birds also differing in appearance and beauty and voice, the one differing from the other. And to the east of those beasts I saw the ends of the earth whereon the heaven
    2 rests, and the portals of the heaven open. And I saw how the stars of heaven come forth, and
    3 I counted the portals out of which they proceed, and wrote down all their outlets, of each individual star by itself, according to their number and their names, their courses and their positions, and their
    4 times and their months, as Uriel the holy angel who was with me showed me. He showed all things to me and wrote them down for me: also their names he wrote for me, and their laws and their companies.

    Chapter 34

    1 And from thence I went towards the north to the ends of the earth, and there I saw a great and
    2 glorious device at the ends of the whole earth. And here I saw three portals of heaven open in the heaven: through each of them proceed north winds: when they blow there is cold, hail, frost,
    3 snow, dew, and rain. And out of one portal they blow for good: but when they blow through the other two portals, it is with violence and affliction on the earth, and they blow with violence.

    Chapter 35

    1 And from thence I went towards the west to the ends of the earth, and saw there three portals of the heaven open such as I had seen in the east, the same number of portals, and the same number of outlets.

    Chapter 36

    1 And from thence I went to the south to the ends of the earth, and saw there three open portals
    2 of the heaven: and thence there come dew, rain, and wind. And from thence I went to the east to the ends of the heaven, and saw here the three eastern portals of heaven open and small portals
    3 above them. Through each of these small portals pass the stars of heaven and run their course to the west on the path which is shown to them. And as often as I saw I blessed always the Lord of Glory, and I continued to bless the Lord of Glory who has wrought great and glorious wonders, to show the greatness of His work to the angels and to spirits and to men, that they might praise His work and all His creation: that they might see the work of His might and praise the great work of His hands and bless Him for ever.



    Fixed stars

    Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

    What do the seven stars represent in Revelation?


    In Revelation chapters 1—3, seven stars are referenced four times. There are other “sevens,” as well: seven lampstandsseven spirits, and seven churches. Also, the first few chapters of Revelation contain letters from Jesus to seven historical churches in Asia Minor.

    In Revelation 1, John is “in the Spirit” and hears “a loud voice like a trumpet” behind him (verse 10). He turns around and sees a vision of the Lord Jesus in His glory. The Lord is standing in the midst of seven golden lampstands, and “in his right hand he held seven stars” (verse 16). John falls down at Jesus’ feet “as though dead” (verse 17). Jesus then revives John and strengthens him for the task of writing the coming revelation.

    The fact that the stars are in Jesus’ right hand indicates that they are important and under His authority. The right hand is a sign of strength and control. Jesus explains to John that the “stars are the angels of the seven churches” (Revelation 1:20). An “angel” is literally a “messenger.” But that leads us to the question—are these human messengers or heavenly beings?

    It could be that every local church has a “guardian angel” who oversees and protects that congregation. Even if that is the case, a better interpretation of the “messengers” of Revelation 1 is that they are the pastors or bishops of the seven churches, symbolized by the lampstands. A pastor is God’s “messenger” to the church in that he is responsible to faithfully preach God’s Word to them. John’s vision shows that each pastor is being held in the Lord’s right hand. And, as we learn in John 10:28, no one can snatch them out of Jesus’ hand.





    The Pleiades also known as The Seven Sisters

    Book of Jasher, Chapter 1
    14 And the boys grew up and their father gave them a possession in the land;

    22 And Abel answered Cain, saying, Surely God who has made us in the earth, he will avenge my cause, and he will require my blood from thee shouldst thou slay me, for the Lord is the judge and arbiter, and it is he who will requite man according to his evil, and the wicked man according to the wickedness that he may do upon earth.
    23 And now, if thou shouldst slay me here, surely God knoweth thy secret views, and will judge thee for the evil which thou didst declare to do unto me this day.

    23 The voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground where thou hast slain him.

    Book of Jasher, Chapter 2
    4 And the sons of men went and they served other gods, and they forgot the Lord who had created them in the earth:

    6 And the Lord caused the waters of the river Gihon to overwhelm them, and he destroyed and consumed them, and he destroyed the third part of the earth, and notwithstanding this, the sons of men did not turn from their evil ways, and their hands were yet extended to do evil in the sight of the Lord.

    12 And Cainan knew by his wisdom that God would destroy the sons of men for having sinned upon earth, and that the Lord would in the latter days bring upon them the waters of the flood.
    19 For in those days the sons of men began to trespass against God, and to transgress the commandments which he had commanded to Adam, to be fruitful and multiply in the earth.
    20 And some of the sons of men caused their wives to drink a draught that would render them barren, in order that they might retain their figures and whereby their beautiful appearance might not fade.
    21 And when the sons of men caused some of their wives to drink, Zillah drank with them.
    22 And the child-bearing women appeared abominable in the sight of their husbands as widows, whilst their husbands lived, for to the barren ones only they were attached.
    23 And in the end of days and years, when Zillah became old, the Lord opened her womb.

    36 And the wives of Lamech listened to him in this matter, and they returned to him with the advice of their father Adam, but they bore no children to him from that time, knowing that God's anger was increasing in those days against the sons of men, to destroy them with the waters of the flood for their evil doings.

    Book of Jasher, Chapter 3
    14 And it was in the fifty-sixth year of the life of Lamech when Adam died; nine hundred and thirty years old was he at his death, and his two sons, with Enoch and Methuselah his son, buried him with great pomp, as at the burial of kings, in the cave which God had told him.

    17 And it was in the year of Adam's death which was the two hundred and forty-third year of the reign of Enoch, in that time Enoch resolved to separate himself from the sons of men and to secret himself as at first in order to serve the Lord.

    23 And in some time after, when the kings and princes and the sons of men were speaking to Enoch, and Enoch was teaching them the ways of God, behold an angel of the Lord then called unto Enoch from heaven, and wished to bring him up to heaven to make him reign there over the sons of God, as he had reigned over the sons of men upon earth.
    36 and it was upon the seventh day that Enoch ascended into heaven in a whirlwind, with horses and chariots of fire.
    38 And all those kings went to the place and they found the earth there filled with snow, and upon the snow were large stones of snow, and one said to the other, Come, let us break through the snow and see, perhaps the men that remained with Enoch are dead, and are now under the stones of snow, and they searched but could not find him, for he had ascended into heaven.


    Book of Jasher, Chapter 4
    4 But in the latter days of Methuselah, the sons of men turned from the Lord, they corrupted the earth, they robbed and plundered each other, and they rebelled against God and they transgressed, and they corrupted their ways, and would not hearken to the voice of Methuselah, but rebelled against him.
    6 For when they sowed the ground in order that they might obtain food for their support, behold, thorns and thistles were produced which they did not sow.
    18 And their judges and rulers went to the daughters of men and took their wives by force from their husbands according to their choice, and the sons of men in those days took from the cattle of the earth, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in order therewith to provoke the Lord; and God saw the whole earth and it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its ways upon earth, all men and all animals.
    21 And Noah found grace in the sight of the Lord, and the Lord chose him and his children to raise up seed from them upon the face of the whole earth.


    Book of Jasher, Chapter 5
    8 For thus saith the Lord, Behold I give you a period of one hundred and twenty years; if you will turn to me and forsake your evil ways, then will I also turn away from the evil which I told you, and it shall not exist, saith the Lord.
    11 And the Lord granted them a period of one hundred and twenty years, saying, If they will return, then will God repent of the evil, so as not to destroy the earth.
    21 And all the sons of men who knew the Lord, died in that year before the Lord brought evil upon them; for the Lord willed them to die, so as not to behold the evil that God would bring upon their brothers and relatives, as he had so declared to do.
    34 In his five hundred and ninety-fifth year Noah commenced to make the ark, and he made the ark in five years, as the Lord had commanded.


    Book of Jasher, Chapter 6

    40 And the day came that the Lord told them to go out, and they all went out from the ark.
    41 And they went and returned every one to his way and to his place, and Noah and his sons dwelt in the land that God had told them, and they served the Lord all their days, and the Lord blessed Noah and his sons on their going out from the ark.
    42 And he said to them, Be fruitful and fill all the earth; become strong and increase abundantly in the earth and multiply therein.

    Book of Jasher, Chapter 7
    24 And the garments of skin which God made for Adam and his wife, when they went out of the garden, were given to Cush.
    25 For after the death of Adam and his wife, the garments were given to Enoch, the son of Jared, and when Enoch was taken up to God, he gave them to Methuselah, his son.
    26 And at the death of Methuselah, Noah took them and brought them to the ark, and they were with him until he went out of the ark.
    27 And in their going out, Ham stole those garments from Noah his father, and he took them and hid them from his brothers.
    28 And when Ham begat his first born Cush, he gave him the garments in secret, and they were with Cush many days.
    29 And Cush also concealed them from his sons and brothers, and when Cush had begotten Nimrod, he gave him those garments through his love for him, and Nimrod grew up, and when he was twenty years old he put on those garments.
    30 And Nimrod became strong when he put on the garments, and God gave him might and strength, and he was a mighty hunter in the earth, yea, he was a mighty hunter in the field, and he hunted the animals and he built altars, and he offered upon them the animals before the Lord.
    31 And Nimrod strengthened himself, and he rose up from amongst his brethren, and he fought the battles of his brethren against all their enemies round about.
    32 And the Lord delivered all the enemies of his brethren in his hands, and God prospered him from time to time in his battles, and he reigned upon earth.


    Book of Jasher, Chapter 8
    1 And it was in the night that Abram was born, that all the servants of Terah, and all the wise men of Nimrod, and his conjurors came and ate and drank in the house of Terah, and they rejoiced with him on that night.
    4 And they said to each other, This only betokens the child that has been born to Terah this night, who will grow up and be fruitful, and multiply, and possess all the earth, he and his children for ever, and he and his seed will slay great kings, and inherit their lands.
    10 And when thy servants went out from the house of Terah, to go to our respective homes to abide there for the night, we lifted up our eyes to heaven, and we saw a great star coming from the east, and the same star ran with great speed, and swallowed up four great stars, from the four sides of the heavens.
    11 And thy servants were astonished at the sight which we saw, and were greatly terrified, and we made our judgment upon the sight, and knew by our wisdom the proper interpretation thereof, that this thing applies to the child that is born to Terah, who will grow up and multiply greatly, and become powerful, and kill all the kings of the earth, and inherit all their lands, he and his seed forever.
    12 And now our lord and king, behold we have truly acquainted thee with what we have seen concerning this child.
    13 If it seemeth good to the king to give his father value for this child, we will slay him before he shall grow up and increase in the land, and his evil increase against us, that we and our children perish through his evil.

    32 so that thou shalt not even have a dog remaining.
    33 And Terah hastened, (as the thing was urgent from the king), and he took a child from one of his servants, which his handmaid had born to him that day, and Terah brought the child to the king and received value for him.
    34 And the Lord was with Terah in this matter, that Nimrod might not cause Abram's death, and the king took the child from Terah and with all his might dashed his head to the ground, for he thought it had been Abram; and this was concealed from him from that day, and it was forgotten by the king, as it was the will of Providence not to suffer Abram's death.
    35 And Terah took Abram his son secretly, together with his mother and nurse, and he concealed them in a cave, and he brought them their provisions monthly.
    36 And the Lord was with Abram in the cave and he grew up, and Abram was in the cave ten years, and the king and his princes, soothsayers and sages, thought that the king had killed Abram.


    Book of Jasher, Chapter 9
    6 And Abram was in Noah's house thirty-nine years, and Abram knew the Lord from three years old, and he went in the ways of the Lord until the day of his death, as Noah and his son Shem had taught him; and all the sons of the earth in those days greatly transgressed against the Lord, and they rebelled against him and they served other gods, and they forgot the Lord who had created them in the earth; and the inhabitants of the earth made unto themselves, at that time, every man his god; gods of wood and stone which could neither speak, hear, nor deliver, and the sons of men served them and they became their gods.
    7 And the king and all his servants, and Terah with all his household were then the first of those that served gods of wood and stone.
    10 And there was not a man found in those days in the whole earth, who knew the Lord (for they served each man his own God) except Noah and his household, and all those who were under his counsel knew the Lord in those days.
    11 And Abram the son of Terah was waxing great in those days in the house of Noah, and no man knew it, and the Lord was with him.
