Summary: (c. 5,722 BCE) Ramsha, son of Eber, was the father of Bozdra, who was later
re-named as Methuselah (B:20:21; AZC — Ramsha).
Azrael’s Commentary - Ramsha
Son of Eber, father of Methuselah II; a large, cruel and violent man. As a child
Ramsha heard the stories of the Sethian Empire and of its fall to the armies of Ahgah
Eaton and the Enoshahim. Thus in his youth he began to hate all Enoshahim, taking
for his hero the man Bozdra (Beginnings 20:9). Growing into manhood, Ramsha refused
to learn his father’s trade and he became instead a professional hunter; often trading
in the fur and meat of the animals he killed. Becoming more skilled as a hunter with
each passing year, Ramsha began to hunt the Enoshahim for sport. When this dark truth
was discovered by his father, Ramsha killed him in order to keep his secret from
being known. However, this heartless act was witnessed by a family friend, causing
the Adaam to expel Ramsha from all their towns and villages.
To the Enoshahim, Ramsha became a terrifying enemy, and they often sent large hunting
parties of their own against him. But for all their cunning and efforts, Ramsha proved
elusive and ever more dangerous. As the centuries passed, Ramsha became a myth and
a legend among those he hunted. When he was 320 years old, Ramsha fathered a son
which he named Bozdra. The mother was a young Adamite woman named Haziel. She was
stolen by Ramsha from the village of Pelaree, but with the birth of her son, she
escaped from Ramsha and returned home to her parents’ house. There among the Adaam,
the boy child was renamed. The name given to the boy was Methuselah. For the first
twenty years of Methuselah’s life, he was guarded night and day by the Adaam to prevent
Ramsha from stealing him away. Methuselah met his father only once, both proved a
disappointment to each other. In a fit of rage, Ramsha tried to kill Methuselah,
but Methuselah escaped and once again took refuge with the Adaam.
The Enoshahim were never able to kill Ramsha, but in his long lifetime Ramsha managed
to kill thousands of the Enoshahim. Among the Adaam, Ramsha was thought to be insane.
But through a quirk of human reasoning among the Enoshahim, Ramsha became in later
centuries the God of the Hunt. His prowess as a hunter was passed from one generation
to the next, and parents would tell their children that if they were not good, then
Ramsha would hunt them down and steal away their life.
At the age of 615 years, Ramsha was still hunting the wild animals which lived in
the Judean hills of present-day Palestine. He was severely mauled by a bear and later
died of his wounds.
And unto Eber was born Ramsha, when he was but 110 years of age. And all the days
of Eber were but 175 years, for by the hand of Ramsha was he made to perish.
Now Ramsha was most wicked, and he feared neither God nor man, and when he was 320
years old, he begat Methuselah, and all the days of his life were 615 years, and
Ramsha died, and there was none found to weep over him.
