B.C. 1729. STENTS IN THE LIEE OP JUDAH. By Bala4 he had Dan and Naphtali ; by Gelfa4 he had Gad and Asser. By Rachel, who was called the Beautiful, he became the father of Joseph and Benjamin. Joseph begat Manasseh and Ephraim, each of whom makes a tribe by himself, the tribe of Levi being removed from the lot of inheritance. CH. VI.—Apis comes into Egypt, and is deified. ABOUT the same time Apis, the son of Phorceus, king of the Argives, came by sea into Egypt. And after he had died in that country, he was called Serapis, the greatest god of all the Egyptians. And he is called Serapis, not Apis, because the Egyptians call a sarcophagus Soros. And they began to worship him while buried in a sarcophagus, before they built him a temple. His son was Argus, from whom the Argi derive their name. CH.VII.—Joseph is sold by his Brethren—The famine in Egypt— Jacob comes down to Egypt, and dies. BUT when Joseph was fifteen years of age, he fed the flocks with his brethren, while he himself was still a boy ; and he was with the sons of Bala and Zelfa, the wives of his father. And as he had accused his brethren before his father, and had related many dreams which he had dreamt to his brethren, they envied him, and sold him to the Egyptians. But while Joseph was sojourning in Egypt, in the second year of the famine, Jacob also came down thither with seventytwo souls, and dwelt there ; and also died there, blessing all his sons in regular order. CH. VIII.—Events in the life ofJudah. JUDAH, the son of Jacob, had a wife named Shuah, and begat Er, Onan, and Zela ; by Thamar he had Phares and Sarah. Judah had given Thamar as a wife to his two sons Er and Onan successively ; and when they had perished, owing to their shameful wickedness, he sent her back to her father's house, fearing to give her to Zela, as he ought to have done, for the sake of raising seed. And afterwards, as she was sitting in the road, Judah, going with Iram his shepherd, to the sheepshearing, after the death of Shuah his wife, begat Phares and Sarah, who were twins, thinking that Thamar was a harlot. And afterwards, when she was being led to the stake as having been detected in adultery, she delivered herself by the display Called Bilhah and Zilpah in the Bible. YOL. I.
