were one of the many Arab tribes the Israelites fought against and married to
produce their children.
These Arabs were produced by Lot's
incest with his youngest daughter. ( after they got him drunk)
GENESIS 19:38 And the younger ( Lot's daughter), she also bare a son, and called
his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon to this day.
DEUTERONOMY 23:3 An
Ammonite or Moabite shall
not enter into the congregation of the Lord;
even to their tenth generation shall they
not enter into the congregation of the Lord for ever:
( One of the kings
of the Israelites was married to an Ammoite, so she would not have been allowed
in the congregation)
10:6 And the
children of Israel did evil again
in the sight of the Lord, and
served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and
the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the
gods of the children of Ammon, and
the gods of the Philistines, and forsook the Lord, and served not him. ( The
Israelites liked to party with the Ammoites)
11:1 Now Jephthah
the Gileadite was
the son of an
harlot. It seems Jep's
mommy was a stripper down at the pub and was a prostitute.
This prostitute (Gileadites)
were the tribe of Manasseh
JEP GETS BOOTED OUT OF THE HOUSE
11:2 And Gilead's wife bare him sons and they thrust out Jephthah, and said
to him, You shalt not inherit in our father's house; for you art the son of a
11:3 Then Jephthah fled from his brethren, and
in the land of Tob: and there
were gathered vain men to Jephthah,
and went out with
11:4 The children of Ammon made war against Israel.
11:9 Jep agrees with the politicians he will fight against the Ammonites if they
get his house back for him.
JEP MAKES A DEAL WITH GOD
11:30 Jephthah vowed to the Lord, I
you deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands,
Then it shall be,
that whatsoever comes forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return,
shall surely be the Lord's, and I
will offer it up for a burnt offering.
(Of course the Lord
would know what would be the first
thing to come out of his house, and helped him whip the children of Ammon)
11:32 ... and the Lord delivered them into his hands.
11:34 And Jephthah came to his house, and, his
daughter came out to meet him with
timbrels and with dances: and she
was his only child;
11:35 when he saw her, he said.. I
have opened my mouth to the Lord, and I cannot go back.
11:37 she said to her father, Let this thing be done for me: let me alone two
months, that I may go up and down upon the mountains, and bewail my virginity, I
and my fellows.
11:39 And it came to pass at the end of two months, that she returned to
her father, who did with her according to his vow which he had vowed:
and she knew no man. And it was a custom in Israel,
11:40 That the
daughters of Israel went yearly to lament the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite
four days in a year.
(Hmmm wonder why this isn't one of the "Jewish" holidays 4 days a
EZRA 9:1 Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying, The
people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites,
have not separated themselves from the people of the lands,..
even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites,
the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.
( Here the Israelites had married a whole bunch of Ammoites and produced
children with them. Those wives and children were sent back to their families.
The land of the Ammoites would be in what we now call Jordan. Of
course the Israelites who gave them the boot were a composite of Ammonites
NEHEMIAH 13:23 In those days also saw I
Jews that had married wives of
Ashdod, of Ammon,
and of Moab:
Maacha Father / daughter?
1_KINGS 2:39 Achish son of
king of Gath.
1_KINGS 15:1 king Jeroboam the son of Nebat
reigned Abijam over Judah his mother's name was Maachah,
the daughter of Abishalom. ( Was his mother the daughter of the king of Gath? )
was still in Egypt I King 12:2 Was this king of Israel's father an Egyptian?
Not sure but his
wife was a Lebeanese (Zidionion) I
15:8 Asa is the next grandson of Ammoites, Moabites, Hittites, Philistines,
Canaanites, Syrians and Chaldeans.
15:13 Also Maachah his
(Asa) mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol
in a grove. (Note that Asa and Jeroboam had a mother with the same name or they
had the same mother? )
1_KINGS 11:1 But king Solomon
loved many strange women, together
with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites,
Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and
( Solomon was not prejudice,
he poked all the Arab women to insure the seed of Israel was distributed in all
1_KINGS 14:21 And Rehoboam
the son of Solomon reigned in Judah
name was Naamah
( DEUT An Ammonite
or Moabite shall
not enter into the congregation of the Lord;
It appears Rehoboam's mommy would not have been chatting with the girls in the
assembly of the Israelites. )
Naamah, Ammoite mother of the Kings of
Israel would not have looked like the Russian dropped their by buzzards and she
would not have acted like this mouthy "woman" being interviewed but she was a native of
the middle east.
The name of the descendants of the Ammoites today would be
1_KINGS 14:31 And Rehoboam slept with his fathers, and was buried with his
fathers in the city of David. And his mother's name was Naamah an Ammonitess.
And Abijam his
son reigned in his stead. King Abijam's grandma
was an Ammoite.
