- (Eskra 42:6-14) These Es'eans were, therefore, a separate
people, pledged to Jehovih, to have no king nor earth-ruler, save
their rab'bahs. And they dwelt in communities and families of tens and
twenties and hundreds, holding all things in common. But in marriage,
they were monagamic; neither would they have more than one suit of
clothes each; and they lived on fruit and herbs only; nor ate they
fish nor flesh of anything that had ever breathed the breath of life.
And they bathed every morning at sunrise, and worshipped before the
altar of Jehovih, doing, in all things, after the manner of the
ancient Faithists. By virtue of the angel hosts, who were with them,
did they these things. And they held communion with the angels of
heaven, every night before going to sleep.
7. Illaes had said: Because I persecuted the Faithists, and raised up
my hands against them and against Jehovih, I was instrumental, in part
for their fall. Now will I labor with them, to re-establish them in
purity and love. And he so labored.
8. And Illaes and his angel hosts made the camps of the Es'eans their
dwelling places, watching over these few Israelites, day and night for
hundreds of years. Yea, without leaving them, these faithful angels
guarded them from all the warring hosts of angels, belonging to the
armies of Baal and Ashtaroth, and to the Triune God, Looeamong, and
9. And, though the Es'eans lived in great purity of body and soul, yet
they were evilly slandered by the world's people around about them on
10. But Jehovih prospered the seed of the Es'eans, in holiness and
love, for many generations.
11. Then came Gafonaya, chief of the loo'is, according to the command
of God, to raise up an heir to the Voice of Jehovih. And, in four
generations more, an heir was born, and named, Joshu, and he was the
child of Joseph and his wife, Mara, devout worshippers of Jehovih, who
stood aloof from all other people, save the Es'eans.
12. And, because of the extreme youth of Mara, the child was of
doubtful sex, whereupon the rab'bahs said, the child was an iesu,
13. The time of the birth of the child, was three days after the
descent of a heavenly ship from the throne of God. And many of the
Es'eans looked up and beheld the star, and they felt the cold wind of
the higher heavens fall upon the place and around about the tent,
where the child was born. And they said, one to another: Jehovih,
14. Gafonaya, the chief angel of the loo'is, knew beforehand what the
birth would be, and he sent out around about the Es'ean encampments
extra guardian angels; and these notified the descending hosts of
heaven of what was near at hand.
- (Eskra 43:1-2) When Joshu was grown up, and ready
for his labor, God provided a host of one hundred million angels to
make a line of light from his Holy Council down to the earth; and they
so made it.
2. And God provided a guardian host of two thousand million angels to
protect the line of communications; for it was war times in heaven and
- (Eskra 44:29-31) For three years,
Joshu traveled amongst the Israelites, preaching, and restoring the
30. And there were gathered in groups, of tens and twenties and
fifties, more than two thousand Israelites, of the ancient Order of
Moses, who became steadfast followers of the teachings of Joshu.
31. But, because of persecution, by the apostate Jews, they kept
themselves aloof from the world, having signs and pass-words, whereby
they knew one another.
- (Eskra 44:1-28) GOD said: These were my
doctrines, as I taught through Joshu: 2. Thou shalt keep the ten
commandments of Moses.
3. Thou shalt not engage in war, nor abet war.
4. Thou shalt eat no flesh of any animal, or fish, or bird, or fowl,
or creeping thing which Jehovih created alive.
5. Thou shalt dwell in families, after the manner of the ancient
Israelites, who held all things in common.
6. Thou shalt have no king nor queen, nor bow down in worship to any,
save thy Creator.
7. Thou shalt not call on the name of angels to worship them, nor to
counsel with them on the affairs of earth.
8. Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself, and do unto thy fellow man
as thou wouldst have him do unto thee.
9. Thou shalt return good for evil, and pity to them that sin.
10. It hath been said: An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth; but I
say, return good for evil.
11. And if a man smite thee on one cheek, turn the other unto him
12. The man shall have but one wife, and the woman but one husband.
13. As the children honor the father, so will the family be blest with
peace and plenty.
14. Remember, that all things are of Jehovih, and ye are His servants,
to help one another.
15. And as much as ye do these services to one another, so serve ye
16. Behold only the virtues and wisdom in thy neighbor; his faults
thou shalt not discover.
17. His matters are with his Creater.
18. Call not on the name of any God or Lord in worship; but worship
19. And when thou prayest, let it be after this manner:
20. Jehovih, who rulest in heaven and earth, hallowed be Thy name, and
reverent amongst men. Sufficient unto me is my daily bread; and, as
much as I forgive those that trespass against me, forgive Thou me, and
make me steadfast, to shun temptation, for all honor and glory are
Thine, worlds without end. Amen!
21. To visit the sick and distressed, the helpless and blind, and to
relieve them; to provide for the widow and orphan, and keep thyself
unspotted before men; these are the way of redemption.
22. Thou shalt take no part in the governments of men, but observe the
will of Jehovih, being obedient unto all governments for His sake.
23. All men are the children of One Father, who is Jehovih; and
whosoever chooseth Him, and keepeth His commandments, is His chosen.
24. To preserve the seed of His chosen, thou shalt not wed but with
25. Contend not with any man for opinion's sake, nor for any earthly
26. And let thy speech be for other's joy; nor open not thy mouth, if
thy words will give pain.
27. Therefore, be considerate of thy speech; teaching others by
gentleness and love, to be respectful toward all men.
28. Preserve the sacred days of the rab'bahs; and the rites and ceremonies of emethachavah.
- (Eskra 44:35-40) Now, it came to pass, that Joshu went into Jerusalem to preach, and in
not many days thereafter, he was accused of preaching Jehovih.
36. And he was arrested, and whilst being carried to prison, he said:
37. Ye are hypocrites and blasphemers! Ye practice none of the
commandments, but all the evils of satan.
38. Behold, the temple shall be rent in twain, and ye shall become
vagabonds on the earth.
39. At that, the multitude cast stones upon him, and killed him!
40. And Jehovih sent a chariot of fire, and bore his soul to Paradise. (Book of Saphah: The Basis of the
50-59) The angels of Jehovih now dwelt
with the Aseneans, who were the true Israelites in fact. Though many
Jews also professed Jehovih under the name of God and Lord God.
51. In three hundred and fifty years after this Jehovih raised up from
the Aseneans, one
iesu, in Nazareth.
Jehovih, and restored many of the lost
rites and ceremonies.
52. In the thirty-sixth year of
Joshu's age he was stoned to death in
Jerusalem by the
Jews that worshiped the heathen Gods.
53. Forty years after
Joshu's death, a false God, Looeamong, with
millions of angel emissaries, obsessed the inhabitants of all those
countries and plunged them into
war and anarchy.
54. The Faithists were scattered to the four ends of the earth.
55. Jehovih said: Never more shall My chosen have kings. I alone am
56. And so it is to this day.
57. Looeamong, the false God, now changed his name and falsely called
himself Christ, which is the Ahamic word for
knowledge. And he raised
up tribes of
mortal warriors, who called themselves Christians, who
are warriors to this day.
58. The doctrine of these warriors was, that
knowledge, which implieth
general education, was the best preventative against crime and misery.
Neither understood any man in those days that the word Christ had any
reference to a man or person. Now, from the time of
Moses to Ezra,
there was an interval of four hundred years, in which the
Jews had no

Ezra Bible is not, therefore, from the time of
Moses, but from the time of Ezra, 2344 years B.K.
