HOMELAND OF THE ISRAELITES
Moses went up Mount Nebo to the top of
Pisgah, looked over the promised land of Israel spread out before him, and died, at
the age of one hundred and twenty, according to Talmudic legend on
7 Adar, his 120th birthday exactly.
Moab is the
historical name for a mountainous strip of land in modern-day Jordan running along the eastern shore of
the Dead Sea. In ancient times, it was home to
the kingdom of the Moabites, a people often
in conflict with their Israelite
neighbors to the west.
The Moabites were a historical people, whose existence is attested to by numerous archeological findings, most notably the Mesha Stele,
which describes the Moabite victory over an unnamed son of King Omri of Israel. Their capital was Dibon, located next to the modern Jordanian town of Dhiban.
The Arnon is a two-mile-wide valley that
divides the land between the Israelite tribes to the north and the land of Moab to the south
(Num 21:13; Deut 3:16). Ancient Moabites would dispute this border, and sometimes in biblical
history the Moabites crossed the Arnon and captured
land of the tribe of Gad on the Medeba Plateau. The Arnon is mentioned many times in because
of its geographical prominence. Known
in the Bible as Kir, Kir Moab, Kir-Heres(eth), and Hereseth, this site (modern Kerak) was the
capital city of Moab. It is situated on an isolated hilltop,
with a view in all directions. The Crusaders recognized the defensible aspect of the site and in 1140
A.D. they made Kerak one of their strongest fortresses in the Middle East.
ancient kingdom East of the Dead Sea, in what is now Jordan.
The land the Jews are claiming to be their true homeland, calling it "Israel" is not the true homeland
of the Jews as some falsy believe today. But let's not get caught up in who they were or where they lived but instead lets
cover the Lord's words to them and finally end up reviewing what they have done in return.

(3) Actual real

the Israelites were----
The Israelite people were shepherds who wondered the
lands grazing their sheep on the open plains.
(Gen 47:3 KJV) And Pharaoh
said unto his brethren (Israelites), What is your occupation? And they said unto Pharaoh, Thy servants are shepherds, both
we, and also our fathers.
Where the Israelites lived----
The Israelites remained on the open
plains until Joseph, a fellow Israelite becomes ruler over all of Egypt. Joseph was the most powerful person in Egypt next
only to the Pharaoh himself.
(Gen 42:6 KJV) And Joseph was the governor
over the land, and he it was that sold to all the people of the land:
42:25 KJV) Then Joseph commanded to fill their (the Jewish people) sacks with corn, and to restore every man's money
into his sack, and to give them provision for the way:
(Gen 45:20 KJV)
Also regard not your stuff; for the good of all the land of Egypt is yours.
45:21 KJV) And the children of Israel did so: and Joseph gave them wagons, according to the commandment of Pharaoh,
and gave them provision for the way.
(Gen 47:1 KJV) Then Joseph came
and told Pharaoh, and said, My father [ISRAEL] and my brethren, and their flocks, and their herds, and all
that they have, are come out of the land of Canaan; and, behold, they are in the land of Goshen.
The Israelites remain in Egypt until ---
it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to his brothers, and looked on their burdens: and
he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brothers. And he looked this way and that way, and
when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand. And when he went out the second
day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Why smite you your fellow?
Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face
of Pharaoh, and dwelled in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well. Moses and all the others flee Egypt and are scattered
throughout the land.
