In Genesis the Amorites are described in as descendants of Canaan, son of Ham. They were a Canaanite group who occupied land east and west of the Jordan. Numerous kings of the Amorites were defeated by Joshua with great slaughter. In the days of Samuel, the Amorites and the Israelites made peace. The Gibeonites, an offshoot of the Amorites, made a covenant with the Hebrews; when Saul would break that vow and kill some of the Gibeonites, God sent a famine to Israel.

Mesopotamia, Clay Cuneiform Tablet, c. 2400 - 700 B.C.

Click for a larger photo
Ancient Mesopotamia and Sumerian culture are the "cradle of civilization." Man's recording of history, science, mathematics, and literature began with clay and a reed stylus. Only a small percentage of tablets have been translated. Reading cuneiform is extremely difficult and a word for word translation is often impossible. Often it is only possible to get the gist of a tablet. Most are receipts for payments in kind, the number of lambs, goats, or oxen donated to a temple, for example. This tablet is untranslated but it is perhaps this type of receipt.
