Dearly beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, how that one day is with the Lord, as a thousand year, and a thousand year as one day. The Lord is not slack to fulfil his promise, as some men count slackness: but is patient to us ward, and would have no man lost, but would receive all men to repentance. firstname.lastname@example.org
and i was awakened ...with these words ..."men of Mesopotamia" ...
and i did not know of what this is ...i prayed and looked see ...
and i was somewhat disquieted for this name is not in the Word of God ...or is it ...and i prayed the more of God our father and Jesus our brother ...
Now when i looked ...for it is a name given by man to an area ...described in the Word of God ...and more simple and plain ...than man would make it ...
and the area is that place between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers ...in what is called now the middle east ...
and those countries are and includes; Iraq... Syria...and Turkey...
and according to the history ...as written by man ...as they search "backwards" from the present into the past ...and try to fit pieces that they find ...together ...
evenso ...according to the history as written by man ...this is the place were "civilization" first started ....
and if civilization ...then it must be the place of the first city ...so the history written by man does say ...for they glory in their cities ...
even from the beginning ...to the end ...
Nevertheless from the recorded Word of God ..the first "city" was built by ...CAIN ....
And Cain lay with his wife, which conceived and bare Henoch. And he was building a city, and called the name of it after the name of his son, Henoch. And Henoch begat Irad. And Irad begat Mahuiael. And Mahuiael begat Mathusael. And Mathusael begat Lamech. And Lamech took him two wives: the one is called Ada, and the other Zilla: And Ada bare Jabal, of whom came they that dwell in tents and possess cattle. And his brothers name was Jubal, of him came all that exercise themselves on the harp and on the organs. And Zilla she also bare Tubalcain a worker in metal and a father of all that grave in brass and iron. And Tubalcains sister was called Naema.
Of course ...plainly Cain was before the flood ...
Now ...after the flood ...
The sons of Noe that came out of the ark were: Sem, Ham and Japheth. And Ham he is the father of Canaan. These are the three sons of Noe, and of these was all the world overspread.
And Noe being an husbandman, went forth and planted a vineyard, and drank of the wine and was drunk, and lay uncovered in the midst of his tent. And Ham the father of Canaan saw his fathers privities, and told his two brethren that were without. And Sem and Japheth took a mantle, and put it on both their shoulders and went backward, and covered their fathers secrets, but their faces were backward, so that they saw not their fathers nakedness.
As soon as Noe was awaked from his wine, and knew what his youngest son had done unto him, he said: Cursed be Canaan, and a servant of all servants be he to his brethren. And he said: Blessed be the Lord God of Sem, and Canaan be his servant. God increase Japheth that he may dwell in the tents of Sem. And Canaan be their servant.
And Noe lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years: So that all the days of Noe were nine hundred and fifty years, and then he died.
These are the generations of the sons of Noe: of Sem, Ham and Japheth, which begat them children after the flood.
The sons of Japheth were: Gomir, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tuball, Mesech and Thyras. And the sons of Gomir were: Ascenas, Riphat and Togarma. And the sons of Javan were: Elisa, Tharsis, Cithim and Dodanim. Of these came the Isles of the gentiles in their countries, every man in his speech, kindred and nation.
The sons of Ham were: Chus, Misraim, Phut and Canaan. The sons of Chus were Seba, Hevila, Sabta, Raima and Sabtema. And the sons of Raima were: Sheba, and Dedan. Chus also beget Nimrod, which began to be mighty in the earth. He was a mighty hunter in the sight of the Lord: Whereof came the proverb: he is as Nimrod that mighty hunter in the sight of the Lord. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babell, Erech, Achad, and Chalne in the land of Sinear: Out of that land came Assur, and builded Ninive, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah, and Ressen between Nineve and Calah. That is a great city. And Mizrim begat Ludim, Enanim, Leabim, Naphtuhim, Pathrusim and Casluhim: from whence came the Philistins, and the Caphtherines.
Canaan also begat Zidon his eldest son and Heth, Jebusi, Emori, Girgosi, Him, Arki, Sini, Arvadi, Zemari and Harmati. And afterward sprang the kindreds of the Cananites. And the coasts of the Cananites were from Sidon till thou come to Gerara and to Asa, and till thou come to Sodoma, Gomorra, Adama, Zeboim, even unto Lasa. These were the children of Ham in their kindreds, tongues, lands and nations.
And Sem the father of all the children of Eber, and the eldest brother of Japheth begat children also. And his sons were: Elam, Assur, Arphachsad, Lud and Aram. And the children of Aram were: Ur, Hul, Gether and Mas. And Arphachsad begat Sala, and Sala begat Eber. And Eber begat two sons. The name of the one was Peleg, for in his time the earth was divided. And the name of his brother was Jaketan.
Jaketan begat Almodad, Saleph, Hizarmoneth, Jarah, Hadoram, Usal, Dikela, Obal, Abimael, Seba, Ophir, Hevila and Jobab. All these are the sons of Jaketan. And the dwelling of them was from Mesa until thou come unto Sephara a mountain of the east land. These are the sons of Sem in their kindreds, languages, countries and nations.
These are the kindreds of the sons of Noe, in their generations and nations. And of these came the people that were in the world after the flood.
And all the world was of one tongue and one language. And as they came from the east, they found a plain in the land of Sinear, and there they dwelled. And they said one to another: come on, let us make brick and burn it with fire. So brick was their stone and slime was their mortar. And they said: Come on, let us build us a city and a tower, that the top may reach unto heaven. And let us make us a name, for peradventure we shall be scattered abroad over all the earth. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the children of Adam had builded. And the Lord said: See, the people is one, and have one tongue among them all: And this have they begun to do, and will not leave off from all that they have purposed to do. Come on, let us descend, and mingle their tongue even there, that one understand not what another sayeth. Thus the Lord scattered them from there upon all the earth. And they left off to build the city. Wherefore the name of it is called Babell, because that the Lord there confounded the tongue of all the world. And because that the Lord from there scattered them abroad upon all the earth.
These are the generations of Sem:
Sem was an hundred years old and begat Arphachsad two years after the flood. And Sem lived after he had beget Arphachsad five hundred years and begat sons and daughters.
And Arphachsad lived thirty five years and begat Sala, and lived after he had beget Sala four hundred years and three and begat sons and daughters.
And Sala was thirty years old and begat Eber, and lived after he had beget Eber four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters. When Eber was thirty four years old, he begat Peleg, and lived after he had beget Peleg, four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters.
And Peleg when he was thirty years old begat Regu, and lived after he had begot Regu two hundred and nine years, and begat sons and daughters.
And Regu when he had lived thirty two years begat Serug, and lived after he had begot Serug two hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters.
And when Serug was thirty years old, he begat Nahor, and lived after he had begot Nahot two hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.
And Nahor when he was twenty nine years old, begat Terah, and lived after he had begot Terah, an hundred and nineteen years, and begat sons and daughters.
And when Terah was seventy years old, he begat Abram, Nahor and Haran.
And these are the generations of Terah.
Terah begat Abram, Nahor and Haran. And Haran begat Lot. And Haran died before Terah his father in the land where he was born, at Ur in Chaldea. And Abram and Nahor took them wives. Abrams wife was called Sarai. And Nahors wife Mylca the daughter of Haran which was father of Milca and of Iisca. But Sarai was barren, and had no child.
Then took Terah Abram his son and Lot his son, Harans son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abrams wife. And they went with him from Ur in Chaldea, to go into the land of Chanaan. And they came to Haran and dwelled there. And when Terah was two hundred years old and five he died in Haran.
Sarai Abrams wife bare him no children. But she had an hand maid an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. Wherefore she said unto Abram: Behold the Lord hath closed me, that I cannot bear. I pray thee go in unto my maid, peradventure I shall be multiplied by means of her. And Abram heard the voice of Sarai. Then Sarai Abrams wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian (after Abram had dwelled ten years in the land of Canaan) and gave her to her husband Abram, to be his wife.
And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived. And when she saw that she had conceived: her mistress was despised in her sight. Then said Sarai unto Abram: Thou dost me unright, for I have given my maid into thy bosom: and now because she seeth that she hath conceived, I am despised in her sight: the Lord judge between thee and me. Then said Abram to Sarai: behold, thy maid is in thy hand, do with her as it pleaseth thee.
And because Sarai fared foul with her, she fled from her. And the Angel of the Lord found her beside a fountain of water in the wilderness: even by a well in the way to Sur. And he said: Hagar Sarais maid, whence comest thou and where ever wilt thou go? And she answered: I flee from my mistress Sarai. And the Angel of the Lord said unto her: return to thy mistress again, and submit thyself under her hands.
And the angel of the Lord said unto her: I will so increase thy seed, that it shall not be numbered for multitude. And the Lords angel said further unto her: see, thou art with child and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ismael: because the Lord hath heard thy tribulation. He will be a wild man, and his hand will be against every man, and every mans hand against him. And yet shall he dwell fast by all his brethren. And she called the name of the Lord that spake unto her: thou art the God that lookest on me, for she said: I have of a surety seen here the back parts of him that seeth me. Wherefore she called the well, the well of the living that seeth me which well is between Cades and Bared. And Hagar bare Abram a son, and Abram called his sons name which Hagar bare Ismael. And Abram was eighty six years old when Hagar bare him Ismael.
When Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to him saying: I am the almighty God: walk before me and be uncorrupt. And I will make my bond between thee and me, and will multiply thee exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face. And God talked moreover with him saying: I am, behold my testament is with thee, that thou shalt be a father of many nations. Therefore, shalt thou no more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham: for a father of many nations have I made thee, and I will multiply thee exceedingly, and will make nations of thee: yea and kings shall spring out of thee. Moreover I will make my bond between me and thee, and thy seed after thee, in their times to be an everlasting testament, so that I will be God unto thee and to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto thee and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger: even all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession, and will be their God.
Then said God: nay, Sara thy wife shall bear thee a son in deed and thou shalt call his name Isaac. And I will make my bond with him, that it shall be an everlasting bond unto his seed after him. And as concerning Ismael also, I have heard thy request: lo, I will bless him and increase him, and multiply him exceedingly. Twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make a great nation of him. But my bond will I make with Isaac, which Sara shall bear unto thee: even this time twelve month.

All the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations. And from David unto the captivity of Babylon are fourteen generations. And from the captivity of Babylon unto Christ, are also fourteen generations.
The birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise. When his mother Mary *was married to Joseph, before they came to dwell together, she was found with child by the holy ghost. Then Joseph her husband being a perfect man, and *loth to make an example of her, was minded to put her away secretly. While he thus thought, behold the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying: Joseph the son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife. For that which is conceived in her is of the holy ghost. She shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus. For he shall save his people from their sins.
