Prophecy # 1|
ESL - year of our Lord WGaF

expansionism. And so, our king will have one of his better scribes prepare a new
copy of this Bible, that will add Sidon, Hebron and a couple of other spots to
the places that we've stopped in on our way from up north. An additional detail
will change our little community to a mighty nation that controlled all of this
territory. Let me skip forward a few thousand years.
-It's incredible! My descendents will manage to stick around here for such a
-Actually, not really. For two thousand years, your descendents will have no
land of their own and and the only thing that will
keep them together will be their belief in your
