Now there arose in the lands of Shinar a man whose name was Elon Zanoah of the house
of Enosh, a shepherd from the hills of Perga, and he believed all the words of Enoch
concerning the evils of Yasher-Baal and Rahob.
Summary: Elon Zanoah (c. 8,800 BCE) led a rather successful rebellion against the
oppression of the Sumerian ruler, Yasher-Baal, and came to be known among his supporters
as the 'son of liberty' (B:16:5,39). It was Elon who rescued Enoch's kidnapped son,
Methuselah, saving him from certain death at the hands of Yasher-Baal. Elon's success
came to a bitter end on the plains of Luzon, when he and his armies were obliterated
by Yasher-Baal's overwhelming force and cunning.
Elon's agenda can be compared to that of the Zealots during the days of Yeshua. The
story of Elon Zanoah juxtaposes the liberty often sought by men, with the liberty
offered by God.
“Shall we not take the sword and proclaim liberty throughout the land? Shall we not
have faith that God is able to deliver into our hands the workers of iniquity?” -
