"We Must Not Help Ammonites, Nor Moabites, To Be In Peace, Nor Prosperous!
2 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of Breathgiver; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of Breathgiver.
3 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of Breathgiver; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of Breathgiver for ever:
4 Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt ; and because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee.
5 Nevertheless Breathgiver thy God would not hearken unto Balaam; but Breathgiver thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto thee, because Breathgiver thy God loved thee.
6 You shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever.
7 You shalt not abhor an Edomite; for he is thy brother: you shalt not abhor an Egyptian; because you wast a stranger in his land.
8 The children that are begotten of them shall enter into the congregation of Breathgiver in their third generation.
How To Identify Ammonites?
Look For Clues And Patterns In The Scripture
Down below are all the scriptures about Ammonites. Before the scriptures are definitions of Hebrew words that they hold. I don't suggest that you go through the vocabulary to try to memorize the meanins, of the words. But rather read the scripture, then look up each word as you come to it.
However, everybody is different, so you might be too.
After you read the scriptures below, check the Bible Code on Ammon, and look for patterns and clues there:
Numbers 21: 24 ...the border of the children of Ammon was strong.
When Ammonites Are in Their Own Land
Breathgiver will take away their land, see next bit.
Deuteronomy 2:19 And when you comest nigh over against the children of Ammon, distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give thee of the land of the children of Ammon any possession; because I have given it unto the children of Lot for a possession.
For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.
Joshua 13: 24And Moses gave inheritance unto the tribe of Gad, even unto the children of Gad according to their families.
25And their coast was Jazer, and all the cities of , and half the land of the children of Ammon, unto Aroer that is before Rabbah;
Breathgiver Gives Away Ammon's Land and Makes the Ammonites to Be Extinct
1 The word of Breathgiver came again unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set your face against the Ammonites, and prophesy against them;
3 And say unto the Ammonites, Hear the word of Breathgiver GOD; Thus saith Breathgiver GOD; Because you saidst, Aha, against my sanctuary, when it was profaned; and against the land of Israel , when it was desolate; and against the house of Judah , when they went into captivity;
4 Behold, therefore I will deliver thee to the men of the east for a possession, and they shall set their palaces in thee, and make their dwellings in thee: they shall eat your fruit, and they shall drink your milk.
5 And I will make Rabbah a stable for camels, and the Ammonites a couching place for flocks: and ye shall know that I am Breathgiver.
6 For thus saith Breathgiver GOD; Because you hast clapped thine hands, and stamped with the feet, and rejoiced in heart with all your despite against the land of Israel ;
7 Behold, therefore I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and will deliver thee for a spoil to the heathen; and I will cut thee off from the people, and I will cause thee to perish out of the countries: I will destroy thee; and you shalt know that I am Breathgiver.
Ammon Was Used as a Scourge to Punish Us When We Did Badly
12 And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of Breathgiver: and Breathgiver strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel , because they had done evil in the sight of Breathgiver.
13 And he gathered unto him the children of Ammon and Amalek, and went and smote Israel , and possessed the city of palm trees.
6 And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of Breathgiver, and served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines, and forsook Breathgiver, and served not him.
7 And the anger of Breathgiver was hot against Israel , and he sold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the children of Ammon.
8 And that year they vexed and oppressed the children of Israel : eighteen years, all the children of Israel that were on the other side Jordan in the land of the Amorites, which is in Gilead .
Gilead = "rocky region"
9 Moreover the children of Ammon passed over Jordan to fight also against Judah , and against Benjamin, and against the house of Ephraim; so that Israel was sore distressed.
Judah = celebrities
10 And the children of Israel cried unto Breathgiver, saying, We have sinned against thee, both because we have forsaken our God, and also served Baalim.
Israel = "He rules with the almighty one"
11 And Breathgiver said unto the children of Israel , Did not I deliver you from the Egyptians, and from the Amorites, from the children of Ammon, and from the Philistines?
12 The Zidonians also, and the Amalekites, and the Maonites, did oppress you; and ye cried to me, and I delivered you out of their hand.
13 Yet ye have forsaken me, and served other gods: wherefore I will deliver you no more.
14 Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.
15 And the children of Israel said unto Breathgiver, We have sinned: do you unto us whatsoever seemeth good unto thee; deliver us only, we pray thee, this day.
16 And they put away the strange gods from among them, and served Breathgiver: and his soul was grieved for the misery of Israel .
17 Then the children of Ammon were gathered together, and encamped in Gilead . And the children of Israel assembled themselves together, and encamped in Mizpeh.
18 And the people and princes of Gilead said one to another, What man is he that will begin to fight against the children of Ammon? he shall be head over all the inhabitants of Gilead.
2 Kings 24:
1 In his days Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim became his servant three years: then he turned and rebelled against him.
2 And Breathgiver sent against him bands ... of the children of Ammon, and sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of Breathgiver, which he spake by his servants the prophets.
3 Surely at the commandment of Breathgiver came this upon Judah , to remove them out of his sight, for the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he did;
4And also for the innocent blood that he shed: for he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood; which Breathgiver would not pardon.
Moabites Identified by Their Tryin to Tempt Us
History of the Jews, by Josephus. Book four, chapter 6; here in chapter six Josephus reports what Balaam said to the king, Here is what he said;
"If you want to be victorious over them - follow my advice. Select your most beautiful women, women beautiful enough to overcome the modesty of their male companions. Dress them in the finest, most seductive clothing and jewelry that you can afford. Then send them to the Israelite camp with these instructions that when any of the Hebrew men desire their companionship, they allow it."
"And when the men lust after them, to let them do as they please but only after they have been persuaded to abandon their own laws; the laws delivered at Sinai through Moses, and to live by the laws and customs of the gods of the Midianites and Moabites; for by this means their God will be angry at them."
From "DOCTRINES OF BALAAM AND THE NICOLAITANES" by DiaBen http://www.israelect.com/divinepageant/racial_segregation.htm :
Ammon Tried to Claim Our Land
1 Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty man of valour, and he was the son of an harlot: and Gilead begat Jephthah.
2 And Gilead's wife bare him sons; and his wife's sons grew up, and they thrust out Jephthah, and said unto him, You shalt not inherit in our father's house; for you art the son of a strange woman.
3 Then Jephthah fled from his brethren, and dwelt in the land of Tob : and there were gathered vain men to Jephthah, and went out with him.
4 And it was so, that when the children of Ammon made war against Israel , the elders of Gilead went to fetch Jephthah out of the land of Tob :
6 And they said unto Jephthah, Come, and be our captain, that we may fight with the children of Ammon.
7 And Jephthah said unto the elders of Gilead , Did not ye hate me, and expel me out of my father's house? and why are ye come unto me now when ye are in distress?
8 And the elders of Gilead said unto Jephthah, Therefore we turn again to thee now, that you mayest go with us, and fight against the children of Ammon, and be our head over all the inhabitants of Gilead.
9 And Jephthah said unto the elders of Gilead , If ye bring me home again to fight against the children of Ammon, and Breathgiver deliver them before me, shall I be your head?
10 And the elders of Gilead said unto Jephthah, Breathgiver be witness between us, if we do not so according to thy words.
11 Then Jephthah went with the elders of Gilead , and the people made him head and captain over them: and Jephthah uttered all his words before Breathgiver in Mizpeh.
12 And Jephthah sent messengers unto the king of the children of Ammon, saying, What hast you to do with me, that you art come against me to fight in my land?
13 And the king of the children of Ammon answered unto the messengers of Jephthah, Because Israel took away my land, when they came up out of Egypt , from Arnon even unto Jabbok, and unto Jordan : now therefore restore those lands again peaceably.
14 And Jephthah sent messengers again unto the king of the children of Ammon:
15 And said unto him, Thus saith Jephthah , Israel took not away the land of Moab , nor the land of the children of Ammon:
16 But when Israel came up from Egypt , and walked through the wilderness unto the Red sea , and came to Kadesh;
17 Then Israel sent messengers unto the king of Edom , sayin, Let me, I pray thee, pass through thy land: but the king of Edom would not hearken thereto. And in like manner they sent unto the king of Moab : but he would not consent: and Israel abode in Kadesh.
18 Then they went along through the wilderness, and compassed the land of Edom , and the land of Moab , and came by the east side of the land of Moab , and pitched on the other side of Arnon, but came not within the border of Moab : for Arnon was the border of Moab .
19 And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon king of the Amorites, the king of Heshbon;
and Israel said unto him, Let us pass, we pray thee, through thy land into my place.
20 But Sihon trusted not Israel to pass through his coast: but Sihon gathered all his people together, and pitched in Jahaz, and fought against Israel .
21 And Breathgiver God of Israel delivered Sihon and all his people into the hand of Israel , and they smote them: so Israel possessed all the land of the Amorites, the inhabitants of that country.
22 And they possessed all the coasts of the Amorites, from Arnon even unto Jabbok, and from the wilderness even unto Jordan .
23 So now Breathgiver God of Israel has dispossessed the Amorites from before his people Israel , and should you possess it?
24 Will not you possess that which Chemosh thy god giveth thee to possess? So whomsoever Breathgiver our God shall drive out from before us, them will we possess.
25 And now art you any thing better than Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab ? did he ever strive against Israel , or did he ever fight against them,
26 While Israel dwelt in Heshbon and her towns, and in Aroer and her towns, and in all the cities that be along by the coasts of Arnon, three hundred years? why therefore did ye not recover them within that time?
27 Wherefore I have not sinned against thee, but you doest me wrong to war against me: Breathgiver the Judge be judge this day between the children of Israel and the children of Ammon.
28 Howbeit the king of the children of Ammon hearkened not unto the words of Jephthah which he sent him.
29 Then the Spirit of Breathgiver came upon Jephthah, and he passed over Gilead , and Manasseh, and passed over Mizpeh of Gilead, and from Mizpeh of Gilead he passed over unto the children of Ammon.
30 And Jephthah vowed a vow unto Breathgiver, and said, If you shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands,
31 Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be Breathgiver's, and I will offer it up for a burnt offerin.
32 So Jephthah passed over unto the children of Ammon to fight against them; and Breathgiver delivered them into his hands.
33 And he smote them from Aroer, even till you come to Minnith, even twenty cities, and unto the plain of the vineyards, with a very great slaughter. Thus the children of Ammon were subdued before the children of Israel.
Ammon Is Linked with Snakes and Sorcery
1 Samuel 11
1 Then Nahash [= snake, whisperer, hisser, sorcerer] the Ammonite came up, and encamped against Jabeshgilead: and all the men of Jabesh said unto Nahash, Make a covenant with us, and we will serve thee.
2 And Nahash the Ammonite answered them, On this condition will I make a covenant with you, that I may thrust out all your right eyes, and lay it for a reproach upon all Israel .
3 And the elders of Jabesh said unto him, Give us seven days' respite, that we may send messengers unto all the coasts of Israel : and then, if there be no man to save us, we will come out to thee.
4 Then came the messengers to Gibeah of Saul, and told the tidings in the ears of the people: and all the people lifted up their voices, and wept.
5 And, behold, Saul came after the herd out of the field; and Saul said, What aileth the people that they weep? And they told him the tidings of the men of Jabesh.
6 And the Spirit of God came upon Saul when he heard those tidings, and his anger was kindled greatly.
7 And he took a yoke of oxen, and hewed them in pieces, and sent them throughout all the coasts of Israel by the hands of messengers, saying, Whosoever cometh not forth after Saul and after Samuel, so shall it be done unto his oxen. And the fear of Breathgiver fell on the people, and they came out with one consent.
8 And when he numbered them in Bezek, the children of Israel were three hundred thousand, and the men of Judah thirty thousand.
9 And they said unto the messengers that came, Thus shall ye say unto the men of Jabeshgilead, To morrow, by that time the sun be hot, ye shall have help. And the messengers came and shewed it to the men of Jabesh; and they were glad.
10 Therefore the men of Jabesh said, To morrow we will come out unto you, and ye shall do with us all that seemeth good unto you.
11 And it was so on the morrow, that Saul put the people in three companies; and they came into the midst of the host in the morning watch, and slew the Ammonites until the heat of the day: and it came to pass, that they which remained were scattered, so that two of them were not left together.
12 And the people said unto Samuel, Who is he that said, Shall Saul reign over us? bring the men, that we may put them to death.
13 And Saul said, There shall not a man be put to death this day: for to day Breathgiver has wrought salvation in Israel .
Ammonites Could be Suspicious When We Are Kind to Them
2 Samuel 10
1 And it came to pass after this, that the king of the children of Ammon died, and Hanun his son reigned in his stead.
2 Then said David, I will shew kindness unto Hanun the son of Nahash, as his father shewed kindness unto me. And David sent to comfort him by the hand of his servants for his father. And David's servants came into the land of the children of Ammon.
3 And the princes of the children of Ammon said unto Hanun their lord, Thinkest thou that David does honour your father, that he hath sent comforters unto thee? hath not David rather sent his servants unto thee, to search the city, and to spy it out, and to overthrow it?
4 Wherefore Hanun took David's servants, and shaved off the one half of their beards, and cut off their garments in the middle, even to their buttocks, and sent them away.
5 When they told it unto David, he sent to meet them, because the men were greatly ashamed: and the king said, Tarry at Jericho until your beards be grown, and then return.
6 And when the children of Ammon saw that they stank before David, the children of Ammon sent and hired the Syrians of Bethrehob and the Syrians of Zoba, twenty thousand footmen, and of king Maacah a thousand men, and of Ishtob twelve thousand men.
7 And when David heard of it, he sent Joab, and all the host of the mighty men.
8 And the children of Ammon came out, and put the battle in array at the entering in of the gate: and the Syrians of Zoba, and of Rehob, and Ishtob, and Maacah, were by themselves in the field.
9 When Joab saw that the front of the battle was against him before and behind, he chose of all the choice men of Israel , and put them in array against the Syrians:
10 And the rest of the people he delivered into the hand of Abishai his brother, that he might put them in array against the children of Ammon.
11 And he said, If the Syrians be too strong for me, then thou shalt help me: but if the children of Ammon be too strong for thee, then I will come and help thee.
12 Be of good courage, and let us play the men for our people, and for the cities of our God: and Breathgiver do that which seemeth him good.
13 And Joab drew nigh, and the people that were with him, unto the battle against the Syrians: and they fled before him.
14 And when the children of Ammon saw that the Syrians were fled, then fled they also before Abishai, and entered into the city. So Joab returned from the children of Ammon, and came to Jerusalem .
15 And when the Syrians saw that they were smitten before Israel , they gathered themselves together.
16 And Hadarezer sent, and brought out the Syrians that were beyond the river: and they came to Helam; and Shobach the captain of the host of Hadarezer went before them.
17And when it was told David, he gathered all Israel together, and passed over Jordan , and came to Helam. And the Syrians set themselves in array against David, and fought with him.
18And the Syrians fled before Israel ; and David slew the men of seven hundred chariots of the Syrians, and forty thousand horsemen, and smote Shobach the captain of their host, who died there.
19And when all the kings that were servants to Hadarezer saw that they were smitten before Israel , they made peace with Israel , and served them. So the Syrians feared to help the children of Ammon any more.
Ammonites Could Be Kind to Us
2 Samuel 17
27 And it came to pass, when David was come to Mahanaim, that Shobi the son of Nahash of Rabbah of the children of Ammon, and Machir the son of Ammiel of Lodebar, and Barzillai the Gileadite of Rogelim,
28 Brought beds, and basons, and earthen vessels, and wheat, and barley, and flour, and parched corn, and beans, and lentiles, and parched pulse,
29 And honey, and butter, and sheep, and cheese of kine, for David, and for the people that were with him, to eat: for they said, The people is hungry, and weary, and thirsty, in the wilderness.
We Should Not Wed to Nor Breed with Ammonites
1 Kings 11
1 But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites:
2 Of the nations concerning which Breathgiver said unto the children of Israel , Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.
5 For Solomon went after ... Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
6 And Solomon did evil in the sight of Breathgiver, and went not fully after Breathgiver, as did David his father.
7 Then did Solomon build an high place for ...Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon [because of the sway of his Ammonite wives].
Solomon's Punishment for His Involvement with Women of Ammon
30 And Ahijah caught the new garment that was on him, and rent it in twelve pieces:
31 And he said to Jeroboam, Take thee ten pieces: for thus saith Breathgiver, the God of Israel, Behold, I will rend the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon, and will give ten tribes to thee:
32 (But he shall have one tribe for my servant David's sake, and for Jerusalem 's sake, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel :)
33 Because that they have forsaken me, and have worshipped ... Milcom the god of the children of Ammon, and have not walked in my ways, to do that which is right in mine eyes, and to keep my statutes and my judgments, as did David his father.
34 Howbeit I will not take the whole kingdom out of his hand: but I will make him prince all the days of his life for David my servant's sake, whom I chose, because he kept my commandments and my statutes:
35 But I will take the kingdom out of his son's hand, and will give it unto thee, even ten tribes.
36 And unto his son will I give one tribe, that David my servant may have a light alway before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there.
Ammon and Moab Are to Be Unmolested When They Obey Breathgiver
1 In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah came this word unto Jeremiah from Breathgiver, saying,
2 Thus saith Breathgiver to me; Make thee bonds and yokes, and put them upon your neck,
3 And send them to the king of Edom , and to the king of Moab , and to the king of the Ammonites, and to the king of Tyrus, and to the king of Zidon, by the hand of the messengers which come to Jerusalem unto Zedekiah king of Judah ;
4 And command them to say unto their masters, Thus saith Breathgiver of hosts, the God of Israel; Thus shall ye say unto your masters;
5 I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.
6 And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon , my servant; and the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him.
7 And all nations shall serve him, and his son, and his son's son, until the very time of his land come: and then many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of him.
8 And it shall come to pass, that the nation and kingdom which will not serve the same Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, and that will not put their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, that nation will I punish, saith Breathgiver, with the sword, and with the famine, and with the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand.
9 Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers, which speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon:
10 For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from your land; and that I should drive you out, and ye should perish.
11 But the nations that bring their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon , and serve him, those will I let remain still in their own land, saith Breathgiver; and they shall till it, and dwell therein.
David's Treatment of Threatenin Ammonites -- David a Man Approven by Breathgiver
1 Chronicles 20
1 And it came to pass, that after the year was expired, at the time that kings go out to battle, Joab led forth the power of the army, and wasted the country of the children of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried at Jerusalem . And Joab smote Rabbah, and destroyed it.
2 And David took the crown of their king from off his head, and found it to weigh a talent of gold, and there were precious stones in it; and it was set upon David's head: and he brought also exceeding much spoil out of the city.
3 And he brought out the people that were in it, and cut them with saws, and with harrows of iron, and with axes. Even so dealt David with all the cities of the children of Ammon. And David and all the people returned to Jerusalem .
