THE KING IS DEAD
Studies in the Near Eastern Resistance to Hellenism 334-31 B.C.

by Samuel K. Eddy

Ye daughters of Israel, weep over Saul, who clothed you daintily in scarlet, who put ornaments of gold upon your apparel.

How are the mighty fallen in the midst of the battle!

2 Samuel i. 24-25

This land is helter-skelter, and no one knows the result which will come about.

. . . .

(Then) it is that a king will come, belonging to the South, Ameni the Triumphant, his name.

. . . .

And justice will come into its place, while wrongdoing is driven out.

Rejoice, he who may behold (this) and who may be in the service of the king! from the "Prophecy of Nefer-rohu"

University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln

1961
