Now Yasher-Baal took all the hosts of Sumer and divided them into three armies: and
over one he set Penuel, the son of Jabesh; and over another he set Dagos the Timmerite.
But unto himself did Yasher-Baal take all the sons of Cain, for there were many and
they stood head and shoulders above all the sons of men.
Summary: Jabesh was the father of Penuel, one of Yasher-Baal’s commanders during
the first and second Sumerian sieges against the holy city of Zion.
But there came to Yasher-Baal the captain of all his hosts, even Penuel the son of
Jabesh, and he was filled with perplexity, and he spoke to the king, saying:
Know this, O son of Jabesh, how that the heavens are clear and pleasing to the eye,
and there blows no ill wind from Lake Ishan to trouble the hosts of Sumer. Wherewith
shall evil be made to fall upon Sumer, seeing that we have taken the city of God?
