Movement of the Lost Ten Tribes
You identify the Vandals with Asher but it would seem the Vandals are actually
Phoenicians who lived in the tribal area of Asher. I say this because the action
of the Vandals and there pattern of migration in the Mediterranean sea seem to
be a repeat of the action of the Phoenician in the earlier Punic war with Rome.
From there base in old Carthage the Vandals devastated Rome for the second time
just as there ancestors did 700 years before. It must be recalled that the area
of Asher was once a part Phoenicia in ancient Israel so the population could be
mixed but the Vandals by there action could only be Phoenician. I think it has
been suggested that Asher may be identified with the Belgians, this seems
You bring up some interesting points.
Our understanding concerning Asher and the Vandals as explained in detail in
Leading Tribes amongst the Vandals and amongst groups that preceded them and
laid the basis for their later formation
all had names similar to those of family clans from Asher. They also linked up
with other groups (such as the Goths from Gad)
in formations reminiscent of those that had previously prevailed before the
From what is now Poland the Vandals moved westward. One section joined the
Angles and Saxons and invaded Britain from the east.
The Vandals contingent (along with part of the Angles, some of the Saxons and
others) attacked the northern regions.
Meanwhile another section of the Vandals from Poland allied with the Goths. They
attacked the Roman Empire eventually moving through Spain (Andalusia was named
after them) into North Africa. Most of them were forced out of Africa, moved to
Ireland and shortly after to what is now the North of England and Lowland
Scotland linking up with other Vandals and company coming in to the same area
but from the east.
Prior tot he Exile the Tribe of Asher had occupied what is now Lebanon and the
coastal areas of Syria. They had merged with the Phoenicians.
The Phoenicians founded Carthage in North Africa and the later Vandal-occupation
of this area is a sense was repeating a pattern set by their ancestors.
Unlike some other writers however our impression is that the Carthaginians were
mainly of Canaanite and other non-Israelite origin.

3. Proverbs 28
1 The wicked flee when no one pursues,
But the righteous are bold as a lion.
2 Because of the transgression of a land, many are its princes;
But by a man of understanding and knowledge
Right will be prolonged.
3 A poor man who oppresses the poor
Is like a driving rain which leaves no food.
4 Those who forsake the law praise the wicked,
But such as keep the law contend with them.
5 Evil men do not understand justice,
But those who seek the LORD understand all.
6 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity
Than one perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
7 Whoever keeps the law is a discerning son,
But a companion of gluttons shames his father.
8 One who increases his possessions by usury and extortion
Gathers it for him who will pity the poor.
9 One who turns away his ear from hearing the law,
Even his prayer is an abomination.
10 Whoever causes the upright to go astray in an evil way,
He himself will fall into his own pit;
But the blameless will inherit good.
11 The rich man is wise in his own eyes,
But the poor who has understanding searches him out.
12 When the righteous rejoice, there is great glory;
But when the wicked arise, men hide themselves.
13 He who covers his sins will not prosper,
But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.
14 Happy is the man who is always reverent,
But he who hardens his heart will fall into calamity.
15 Like a roaring lion and a charging bear
Is a wicked ruler over poor people.
16 A ruler who lacks understanding is a great oppressor,
But he who hates covetousness will prolong his days.
17 A man burdened with bloodshed will flee into a pit;
Let no one help him.
18 Whoever walks blamelessly will be saved,
But he who is perverse in his ways will suddenly fall.
19 He who tills his land will have plenty of bread,
But he who follows frivolity will have poverty enough!
20 A faithful man will abound with blessings,
But he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished.
21 To show partiality is not good,
Because for a piece of bread a man will transgress.
22 A man with an evil eye hastens after riches,
And does not consider that poverty will come upon him.
23 He who rebukes a man will find more favor afterward
Than he who flatters with the tongue.
24 Whoever robs his father or his mother,
And says, ?It is no transgression,?
The same is companion to a destroyer.
25 He who is of a proud heart stirs up strife,
But he who trusts in the LORD will be prospered.
26 He who trusts in his own heart is a fool,
But whoever walks wisely will be delivered.
27 He who gives to the poor will not lack,
But he who hides his eyes will have many curses.
28 When the wicked arise, men hide themselves;
But when they perish, the righteous increase.
