Commentary on
The Book of Jasher
Chapter 73:1-10.

LXXIII:1  In the fifty fifth year of the reign of Pharaoh king of Egypt, that is in the hundred
          and fifty seventh year of the Israelites going down into Egypt, reigned Moses in Cush.
LXXIII:2 Moses was twenty seven years old when he began to reign over Cush, and forty years
          did he reign.
LXXIII:3 And Yehuveh granted Moses favor and grace in the eyes of all the children of Cush,
          and the children of Cush loved him exceedingly, so Moses was favored by
Yehuveh and
          by men.
LXXIII:4 And in the seventh day of his reign, all the children of Cush assembled and came
          before Moses and bowed down to him to the ground.
LXXIII:5 And all the children spoke together in the presence of the king, saying, Give us
          counsel that we may see what is to be done to this city.
LXXIII:6 For it is now nine years that we have been besieging round about the city, and have
          not seen our children and our wives.
LXXIII:7 So the king answered them, saying, If you will hearken to my voice in all that
          I shall command you, then will Yehuveh give the city into our hands and we shall
          subdue it.
LXXIII:8 For if we fight with them as in the former battle which we had with them before the
          death of Kikianus, many of us will fall down wounded as before.
LXXIII:9 Now therefore behold here is counsel for you in this matter; if you will hearken to
          my voice, then will the city be delivered into our hands.
LXXIII:10  So all the forces answered the king, saying, All that our lord shall command that
          will we do.
