Mitzrayim (Egypt), Son of Ham (Randyjw; June 23, 2017)
During the celebration of Passover, the Jewish people are commanded by G-d to recount our slavery in Egypt, and our subsequent deliverance by G-d from bondage. One of the songs we sing is “Dayenu” (It Would Have Been Enough”), and begins, thus:
“Ilu Hotzi Hotzianu, Hotzianu Mi Mitzrayim, Hotzianu Mi Mitzrayim, Dayenu”. In this song, we are thanking G-d for all the miracles He wrought to deliver us from our enslavement at Pharoah’s hand. For each miracle He provided, we say that just that one would have been enough, but He chose to bestow the many, so that the inhabitants of Egypt would be under no delusion as to Who was really responsible in creating them.
The Jewish people reference Egypt by its Hebrew name, Mitzrayim, which refers to the name given for the son of Ham.
At this time, it has come to light that mitochondrial DNA of a sampling of Egyptian mummies from the Abusir El-Meleq region of Egypt may indeed prove the Jewish reasons for our statements and the factual historicity of the Jewish Bible.
