LOST 10 TRIBES MIGRATION WITH THEIR CAPTORS , THE ASSYRIANS
This captivity ,documented in the Bible as to have been by the Assyrians ,is corroborated by archaeological tablets found in the excavations in the Assyrian Royal Library at Nineveh . They indicate that a majority of the Israelites escaped, some traveling around the southern end of the Black Sea into the Danube River Valley and the Carpathian Mountains.
Others went by way of the Dariel pass through the Caucasus Mountains into the Steppes of Southern Russia. ( This is the origin of the term Caucasian ).
This is further confirmed in 2 Ezra 13: 39- 45 , “ and whereas thou sawest that he gathered another peaceable multitude unto him; those are the TEN TRIBES which were CARRIED AWAY PRISONERS out of their own land in the time of Osea the King, whom Salmanasar the KING OF ASSYRIA led away captive, and he carried them over the waters, and so came they unto ANOTHER LAND ,But they took this counsel among themselves that they would leave the multitude of the heathen and GO FORTH INTO FURTHER COUNTRY WHERE NEVER MANKIND DWELT that they might there keep their statutes which they never kept in their own land and they entered into Euphrates by the narrow passages of the river , for the most High shewed them signs and held still the flood, till they were passed over. For through that country there was a great way to go namely of a year and a half and the same region is called Asareth “ .
This is in harmony with Micah 2:12- 13 which states , “ I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee, I will surely GATHER THE REMNANT OF ISRAEL; I will put them together as the sheep of Basra ,as the flock in the midst of their fold , they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.
The breaker ( narrow passage )is come up before them they have broken up( went single file) and have passed through the gate and are gone out by it
( passed through)and their king shall pass before them and the Lord on the head of them “.( Almighty God is leading them by signs). The Clauses they have
“ passed through the gate “ and the one by Ezra , “ the breaker that has come up before them “ are parallel and refer to the same circumstance and place , this gate or narrow passage which is up among the headwaters of the Euphrates is known today as the Caucasian pass or the Pass of Dariel.
This IS the origin of the term Caucasian .
Ancient writings sometimes refer to it as the PASS OF ISRAEL !
It is at this time the Prophet Hosea wrote in Hosea 3:4 ,
“ the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king and
without a sacrifice and without an image or ephod or teraphim “ .
As the marginal reading gives it, “ WITHOUT A STANDING PILLAR “ .
Young’s Exhaustive Concordance gives among other definitions of the original Hebrew word, MEMORIAL STONE and PILLAR. Other authorities give US the translation PILLAR-ROCK and PILLAR-STONE as the correct rendering .
All of this CONFIRMS that the pillar in question is the Bethel pillar stone which was Used as the Coronation Stone and retained by the royal family which ruled over Israel until the overthrow of Zedekiah. When Jerusalem was taken by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, the temple destroyed, killed King Zedekiah’s sons in front of him, putting his eyes out so that was the last thing he saw and putting him in prison to die.
Nebuchadnezzar SPARED THE KINGS DAUGHTERS, that are mentioned several times in Jeremiah 41 10 through 17 and Jeremiah 43 6. If not for these daughters there would have been no one to carry on the kingly bloodline of King David as promised by Almighty God, Because under Hebrew law as mentioned in numbers 27:8- 11 ,Because the sons were killed and there were no male heirs a daughter would inherit , as though she were a son ,
the right of descent to pass to her male offspring provided she married with in her tribe .
