The Book of Jasher
|LXXVI:1 And Moses the son of Amram was still king in the land of Cush in those days, and he
prospered in his kingdom, and he conducted the government of the children of Cush in
justice, in righteousness, and integrity.
LXXVI:2 And all the children of Cush loved Moses all the days that he reigned over them, and
all the inhabitants of the land of Cush were greatly afraid of him.
LXXVI:3 And in the fortieth year of the reign of Moses over Cush, Moses was sitting on the royal
throne whilst Adoniah the queen was before him, and all the nobles were sitting around him.
LXXVI:4 And Adoniah the queen said before the king and the princes, What is this thing which
you, the children of Cush, have done for this long time?
LXXVI:5 Surely you know that for forty years that this man has reigned over Cush he has not
approached me, nor has he served the elohims of the children of Cush.
LXXVI:6 Now therefore hear, O ye children of Cush, and let this man no more reign over you as
he is not of our flesh.
LXXVI:7 Behold Menacrus my son is grown up, let him reign over you, for it is better for you to
serve the son of your lord, than to serve a stranger, a slave of the king of Egypt.
LXXVI:8 And all the people and nobles of the children of Cush heard the words which Adoniah
the queen had spoken in their ears.
LXXVI:9 And all the people were preparing until the evening, and in the morning they rose up
early and made Menacrus, son of Kikianus, king over them.
LXXVI:10 And all the children of Cush were afraid to stretch forth their hand against Moses,
for Yehuveh was with Moses, and the children of Cush remembered the oath which they
swore unto Moses, therefore they did no harm to him.
