◄1906 BC: THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT: The Abrahamic Covenant. The Lord made a covenant with Abram. He also said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them 400 years. And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they will come out with great possessions. Now as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age. But in the 4th generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.” [Exo 15:13-16] This passage speaks about Abraham’s descendants being afflicted 400 years… not Abraham. The 4th generation Abraham (1) Isaac, (2) Jacob, (3) Joseph (4) Manasseh & Ephraim.

He met Abram returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, Abram gave him 1/10 of the spoils of the battle. Jesus is a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

He divided his forces against them by night, and he and his servants attacked them and pursued them as far as Hobah, which is north of Damascus.

Then they turned back and came to En Mishpat (Kadesh), and attacked all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites who dwelt in Hazezon Tamar.

And the King of Sodom, the king of Gomorrah, the king of Admah, the king of Bela (that is Zoar) went out and joined together in battle in the Valley of Siddim (The Salt Sea/The Dead Sea) against Chedorlaomer king of Elam (Ancient Persia/modern Iran), Tidal king of nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar (Babylon Gen 14:5-12, King Amrphel is possibly King Hammarabi of Babylon), and Arioch king of Ellasar… 4 kings against 5. Now the Valley of Siddim was full of asphalt pits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled; some fell there, and the remainder fled to the mountains. Then they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their provisions… they also took Lot, Abram’s nephew who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.

Dissention between Abram and Lot. They traveled back to the site of the original altar, between the cities of Bethel and Ai. The land was not able to support them, that they might dwell together, for their possessions were so great. There was strife between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock and the herdsmen of Lot’s livestock. So Abram said to Lot, “Please let there be no strife between you and me, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen; for we are brethren. Is not the whole land before you? Please separate from me. If you take the left, then I will go to the right; or, if you go to the right, then I will go to the left.” Lot chose all the plain of Jordan and journeyed east. Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain and pitched his tent even as far as Sodom. But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the Lord.

Resettlement of the northern plains in Mesopotania by smaller, sedentary populations occurred near 1900 BC, three centuries after the collapse due to aridification. (See 2200 BC)

In China, about 4000 cal. yr BP Longshan culture was displaced by Yueshi culture which was relatively underdeveloped, simple and unsophisticated.

Radio Carbon Dating Unreliable Past This Dated

2000 BC: Although the equipment used to date radioactive materials has become more sophisticated, basic problems originally discovered by Willard Libby, inventor of the C14 dating method, still pertain. Radiocarbon (C14) dating, calibrated using known dates of Egyptian artifacts, has proved accurate back to only about 2000 BC, according to the discoverer (Libby 1965:ix; for an application to Mesopotamia, see Mallowan 1968:7-8). This has created problems for radio carbon dating older than 4000 BP (Before Present). Dates earlier than that cannot be calibrated since there is no known historical material older than 5000 BP. Dr. Libby himself said:

The first shock Dr. Arnold and I had was that our advisors informed us that history extended back only 5000 years. We had initially thought that we would be able to get samples along the curve back to 30,000 years, put the points in, and then our work would be finished . . . We learned rather abruptly that these numbers, these ancient ages are not known; in fact, it is about the time of the first dynasty in Egypt that the last [earliest] historical date of any real certainty has been established (1958:531).
