Yovel Jubilees 8
:In the twenty-ninth jubilee, in the first week, [1373 A.M.] in the beginning thereof Ar'pakh'shad (775) took to himself a wife and her name was Rasu'eja, the daughter of Susan, the daughter of Eylam (5867), and she bare him a son in the third year in this week, [1375 A.M.] and he called his name Kainam.
:And the son grew, and his father taught him writing, and he went to seek for himself a place where he might seize for himself a city.
:And he found a writing which former (generations) had carved on the rock, and he read what was thereon, and he transcribed it and sinned owing to it; for it contained the teEchi (278)ng of the Watchers in accordance with which they used to observe the omens of the sun and moon and stars in all the signs of heaven.
:And he wrote it down and said nothing regarding it; for he was afraid to speak to No'ach (5146) about it lest he should be angry with him on account of it.
:And in the thirtieth jubilee, [1429 A.M.] in the second week, in the first year thereof, he took to himself a wife, and her name was Melka, the daughter of Maday (4074) (4074), the son of Yephet (3315) (3315), and in the fourth year [1432 A.M.] he begat a son, and called his name Shelach (7974); for he said: 'Truly I have been sent.'
:[And in the fourth year he was born], and Shelach (7974) grew up and took to himself a wife, and her name was Mu'ak, the daughter of Kesed (3777), his father's brother, in the one and thirtieth jubilee, in the fifth week, in the first year [1499 A.M.] thereof.
:And she bare him a son in the fifth year [1503 A.M.] thereof, and he called his name Ever (5677): and he took unto himself a wife, and her name was 'Azûrâd, the daughter of Nebrod, in the thirty-second jubilee, in the seventh week, in the third year thereof. [1564 A.M.]
:And in the sixth year [1567 A.M.] thereof, she bare him son, and he called his name Peleg (6389); for in the days when he was born the children of No'ach (5146) began to divide the earth amongst themselves: for this reason he called his name Peleg (6389).
:And they divided (it) secretly amongst themselves, and told it to No'ach (5146).
:And it came to pass in the beginning of the thirty-third jubilee [1569 A.M.] that they divided the earth into three parts, for Shem (8035) and Cham (2526) and Yephet (3315) (3315), according to the inheritance of each, in the first year in the first week, when one of us who had been sent, was with them.
:And he called his sons, and they drew nigh to him, them and their sons, and he divided the earth into the lots, which his three sons were to take in possession, and they reached forth their hands, and took the writing out of the bosom of No'ach (5146), their father.
:And there came forth on the writing as the Lot (3876) of Shem (8035) the middle of the earth which he should take as an inheritance for himself and for his sons for the generations of eternity, from the middle of the mountain range of Rafa, from the mouth of the water from the river Tina, and his portion goes towards the west through the midst of this river, and it extends till it reaches the water of the abysses, out of which this river goes forth and pours its waters into the sea Me'at, and this river flows into the great sea. And all that is towards the north is of Yephet (3315) (3315), and all that is towards the south belongs to Shem (8035).
:And it extends till it reaches Karaso: this is in the bosom of
which looks towards the south.
:And his portion extends along the great sea, and it extends in a straight line till it reaches the west of the tongue which looks towards the south: for this sea is named the tongue of the Sea of Mits'rayim (4714).
:And it turns from here towards the south towards the mouth of the great sea on the shore of (its) waters, and it extends to the west to 'Afra, and it extends till it reaches the waters of the river Gichon (1571), and to the south of the waters of Gichon (1571), to the banks of this river.
:And it extends towards the east, till it reaches the Garden of Eden (5729), to the south thereof, [to the south] and from the east of the whole land of Eden (5729) and of the whole east, it turns to the east and proceeds till it reaches the east of the mountain named Rafa, and it descends to the bank of the mouth of the river Tina.
:This portion came forth by Lot (3876) for Shem (8035) and his sons, that they should possess it for ever unto his generations for evermore.
:And No'ach (5146) rejoiced that this portion came forth for Shem (8035) and for his sons, and he remembered all that he had spoken with his mouth in prophecy; for he had said: 'Blessed be Y'hovah (3068) Elohim (430) of Shem (8035) and may Y'hovah (3068) dwell in the dwelling of Shem (8035).'
:And he knew that the Garden of Eden (5729) is the holy of holies, and the dwelling of Y'hovah (3068), and Mount Sinay (5514) the centre of the desert, and Mount Tsiyon (6726) -the centre of the navel of the earth: these three were created as holy places facing each other.
:And he blessed the Elohim (430) of elohim (430), whom put the word of Y'hovah (3068) into his mouth, and Y'hovah (3068) for evermore.
:And he knew that a blessed portion and a blessing had come to Shem (8035) and his sons unto the generations for ever -the whole land of Eden (5729) and the whole land of the Red Sea, and the whole land of the east and India, and on the Red Sea and the mountains thereof, and all the land of Bashan (1316), and all the land of L'vanon (3844) and the islands of Kaftur, and all the mountains of Sanir and 'Amana, and the mountains of Ashur (804) (804) in the north, and all the land of Eylam (5867), Ashur (804) (804), and Bavel (894), and Susan and Ma'edai, and all the mountains of Ararat (780), and all the region beyond the sea, which is beyond the mountains of Ashur (804) (804) towards the north, a blessed and spacious land, and all that is in it is very good.
:And for Cham (2526) came forth the second portion, beyond the Gichon (1571) towards the south to the right of the Garden, and it extends towards the south and it extends to all the mountains of fire, and it extends towards the west to the sea of 'Atel and it extends towards the west till it reaches the sea of Ma'uk -that (sea)
everything which is not destroyed descends.
:And it goes forth towards the north to the limits of Gad (1410)ir, and it goes forth to the coast of the waters of the sea to the waters of the great sea till it draws near to the river Gichon (1571), and goes along the river Gichon (1571) till it reaches the right of the Garden of Eden (5729).
:And this is the land which came forth for Cham (2526) as the portion which he was to occupy for ever for himself and his sons unto their generations for ever.
:And for Yephet (3315) (3315) came forth the third portion beyond the river Tina to the north of the outflow of its waters, and it extends north- easterly to the whole region of Gog (1463), and to all the country east thereof.
:And it extends northerly to the north, and it extends to the mountains of Qelt towards the north, and towards the sea of Ma'uk, and it goes forth to the east of Gad (1410)ir as far as the region of the waters of the sea.
:And it extends until it approaches the west of Fara and it returns towards 'Aferag, and it extends easterly to the waters of the sea of Me'at.
:And it extends to the region of the river Tina in a north-easterly direction until it approaches the boundary of its waters towards the mountain Rafa, and it turns round towards the north.
:This is the land which came forth for Yephet (3315) (3315) and his sons as the portion of his inheritance which he should possess for himself and his sons, for their generations for ever; five great islands, and a great land in the north.
:But it is cold, and the land of Cham (2526) is hot, and the land of Shem (8035) is neither hot nor cold, but it is of blended cold and heat.
