Kish

 

Pronunciation:  kihsh

Occurrences:  7

First Reference:  Beginnings 11:24

 

Now you mighty men of Sumer, hear the words of Yasher-Baal, for this day shall I take these many only, and I shall prove you before the mighty men of Kish, that you might take to your souls the favor of that god who has established you in greatness, that you may know surely that the god who spared us from the treachery of Azotus has not forsaken you.

 

 

See:  Chemosh, Sumerian Empire, Yasher-Baal

 

Summary:  Located in ancient Mesopotamia, Kish was one of the five cities conquered by the armies of Yasher-Baal, the son of Cain, during his military campaign to solidify his rule of the Sumerian Empire. Yasher-Baal, who reigned in Sumer, placed his son Chemosh upon the throne of Kish. Other cities that fell under the rule of Yasher-Baal include: Shinar, Uruk, Calneh, and Babel (c. 8,800 BCE)(B:11:34).

 

 

 

Notes/References:

 

31. Now when these things were done, Yasher-Baal took but five hundred men of war and with great cunning he went out against the city of Kish and he did slay all the mighty men thereof, and there was great lamentation and weeping.

32. And the men of Sumer marveled greatly at the fury of their lord and king, even Yasher-Baal, for he possessed great strength and his daring was beyond measure, for against whomsoever he set his face, the heart of that man would fail within him.

33. And Yasher-Baal did place upon the throne of Kish the son of his loins, Chemosh; and he was caused to swear a mighty oath unto his father, and to the nobles of Sumer did he also give allegiance. And a fifth part of all the wealth of Kish did Chemosh give to Sumer from that day forth.

34. Now after these things were accomplished, Yasher-Baal set his hand against the great cities between the two rivers. And unto the law of Sumer did he add Shinar, Uruk, Babel, and Calneh.
