1. "Isacon" (Isaac) Ancestor of the Scots
The Four Ancient Books of Wales
by William F. Skene 
THE RACES OF BRITAIN AND THE PLACE OF THE PICTS AMONG THEM.
In the Albanic Duan, which seems to have belonged to some collection of
additions to Nennius, and which contains the oldest record of the
ethnological traditions of Scotland, the brothers Brittus and Albanus
appear as the eponymi of the two Celtic races inhabiting respectively
Britain and Alban, or Scotland. Thus--
"O, all ye learned of Alban,
Ye well-skilled host of yellow hair,
What was the first invasion? Is it known to you?
Which took the land of Alban?
Albanus possessed it; numerous his hosts.
He was the illustrious son of Isacon.
He and Briutus were brothers without deceit.
From him Alban of ships has its name.
Briutus banished his active brother
Across the stormy sea of Icht.
Briutus possessed the noble Alban
As far as the conspicuous promontory of Fothudain."
Note: The father of the brothers is named "Isacon" cf. "Isaac"?
2. Message to Israel from Ulster

From: Ulster-Scots Language Society <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Subject: RE: " a little loyal jewish Ulster"
My friend Mark Thompson, who is a very gifted graphic designer found
this quotation on the internet. Prime Minister Blair wants to use the
example of "peace" in Ulster as proof of his competence to promote
"peace" in the Middle-East. You better watch out! Now here is that
quote: Sir Ronald Storrs, the first British military governor of
Jerusalem, explained that the Zionist
"enterprise was one that blessed him who gave as well as him that took,
forming for England a little loyal Jewish Ulster in a sea of
hostile Arabism". The Zionists would be "the Orangemen of Palestine"

3. Jeremiah 31.
JEREMIAH 31 AND THE LOST TEN TRIBES
Jeremiah chapter 31 contains several important messages pertaining to
theme of this work. The Commentary below deals with some of them.
[Jeremiah 31:1] AT THE SAME TIME, SAITH THE LORD, WILL I BE THE GOD OF
THE FAMILIES OF ISRAEL, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.
This is referring to the time of reconciliation when God will once
acknowledge the Lost Ten Tribes as HIS people and they will return and
[Jeremiah 31:2] THUS SAITH THE LORD, THE PEOPLE WHICH WERE LEFT OF THE
SWORD FOUND GRACE IN THE WILDERNESS; EVEN ISRAEL, WHEN I WENT TO CAUSE
Isaac Abarbanel (1435-1509): <<The prophecy from the expression FOUND
IN THE WILDERNESS (31:2) to HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD, O YE NATIONS
with the Future Redemption. It may be divided into three parts: (1)
its beginning till the end of [Jeremiah 31:22] speaks of the
the Ten Tribes and their return to settle in their land, (2) The second
part from [Jeremiah 31:23] THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, THE GOD OF
AS YET THEY SHALL USE THIS SPEECH IN THE LAND OF JUDAH till the end of
(31:26) speaks of the Redemption of Judah. (3) The third part from
[Jeremiah 31:27] BEHOLD, THE DAYS COME, SAITH THE LORD, THAT I WILL SOW
HOUSE OF ISRAEL AND THE HOUSE OF JUDAH till the end of (31:37) speaks
the unification of the two kingdoms of Israel and Judah.>>
[Jeremiah 31:3] THE LORD HATH APPEARED OF OLD UNTO ME, SAYING, YEA, I
LOVED THEE WITH AN EVERLASTING LOVE: THEREFORE WITH LOVINGKINDNESS HAVE
[Jeremiah 31:4] AGAIN I WILL BUILD THEE, AND THOU SHALT BE BUILT, O
OF ISRAEL: THOU SHALT AGAIN BE ADORNED WITH THY TABRETS, AND SHALT GO
IN THE DANCES OF THEM THAT MAKE MERRY.
[Jeremiah 31:5] THOU SHALT YET PLANT VINES UPON THE MOUNTAINS OF
THE PLANTERS SHALL PLANT, AND SHALL EAT THEM AS COMMON
[Jeremiah 31:6] FOR THERE SHALL BE A DAY, THAT THE WATCHMEN UPON THE
EPHRAIM SHALL CRY, ARISE YE, AND LET US GO UP TO ZION UNTO THE LORD OUR
The Lost Ten Tribes from the "Mountain" of Ephraim will decide to
Zion and to their God, the God of their fathers, i.e. the God of
Menachem Buleh ("Daat Mikra") points out when the Northern Ten Tribes
Jeroboam split away from Judah their going up to Jerusalem was
<<WHEREUPON THE KING [i.e. Jeroboam] TOOK COUNSEL, AND MADE TWO CALVES
GOLD, AND SAID UNTO THEM, IT IS TOO MUCH FOR YOU TO GO UP TO
BEHOLD THY GODS, O ISRAEL, WHICH BROUGHT THEE UP OUT OF THE LAND OF
According to tradition the last King of Northern
Hoshea, allowed those of his people who wished to make the pilgrimage
Jerusalem to do so. By that time however it was too late and most of
people did not return. In the future this will change and the Lost Ten
Tribes will want to come back. The word translated above as "WATCHMEN"
WATCHMEN UPON THE MOUNT EPHRAIM in Jeremiah 31:6) in Hebrew is
This term in Hebrew came to mean "Christian" and Jeremiah was in fact
prophesying that the Lost Ten Tribes in the latter Times would be
Christians prior to their return.
[Jeremiah 31:7] FOR THUS SAITH THE LORD; SING WITH GLADNESS FOR
AND SHOUT AMONG THE CHIEF OF THE NATIONS: PUBLISH YE, PRAISE YE, AND
LORD, SAVE THY PEOPLE, THE REMNANT OF ISRAEL.
[Jeremiah 31:8] BEHOLD, I WILL BRING THEM FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY, AND
GATHER THEM FROM THE COASTS OF THE EARTH, AND WITH THEM THE BLIND AND
LAME, THE WOMAN WITH CHILD AND HER THAT TRAVAILETH WITH CHILD TOGETHER:
GREAT COMPANY SHALL RETURN THITHER.
"FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY": Most of the Lost Ten Tribes
be in the North, i.e. "BUT, THE LORD LIVETH, THAT BROUGHT UP THE
OF ISRAEL FROM THE LAND OF THE NORTH, AND FROM ALL THE LANDS WHITHER HE
DRIVEN THEM: AND I WILL BRING THEM AGAIN INTO THEIR LAND THAT I GAVE
THEIR FATHERS" [Jeremiah 16:15]. They will be mostly to the North of
Land of Israel but also in other places. The "North" means Northern
and North America. The Lost Ten Tribes will also be ingathered "FROM
COASTS OF THE EARTH" [Jeremiah 31:8]. The word translated as "COASTS"
Hebrew is "Yarctei" meaning literally thighs. Buleh points out that
word is synonymous with "ends of the earth". It was prophesied
that the Lost Tribes would be in the "ends" or geographical extremities
the Continental masses, as indeed they are in every case, e.g. Western
Europe, Scandinavia, Britain, North America, Australia, South Africa.
may be a bit fanciful to mention, but if you look at a map of North
it does look somewhat similar to a thigh. They will return by plane and
ship. It may well be similar to how the Ethiopian Jews returned to
We saw pictures of women who had given birth in flight: i.e. HER THAT
TRAVAILETH WITH CHILD. This type of transport in which everybody could
safely conducted was not possible until modern times.
"North Country" and "Coasts of the Earth" regarding
Latter Day Era of our own time refers to North America, Western Europe,
Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and like places. Even in the time
Jeremiah these expressions could refer to areas in Northern Europe. A
related expression connected with the Lost Ten Tribes is "ends of the
earth" (Genesis 33:13, Isaiah 41:8,9,13). This expression too in
times could relate to northern regions:
<<In innumerable places Egyptian, Hebrew, Babylonian,
Greek, and Latin writings refer to the most northerly lands as 'the
the earth'>> (SPANUTH p. 28).
[Jeremiah 31:9] THEY SHALL COME WITH WEEPING, AND WITH SUPPLICATIONS
LEAD THEM: I WILL CAUSE THEM TO WALK BY THE RIVERS OF WATERS IN A
WAY, WHEREIN THEY SHALL NOT STUMBLE: FOR I AM A FATHER TO ISRAEL, AND
EPHRAIM IS MY FIRSTBORN.
God will return and acknowledge the Lost Ten Tribes as His people
Judah. This will be known to all. The Lost Ten Tribes will no longer be
<<God says to Israel, You are my sons and I am your father, as it says
[Deuteronomy 14:1] YE ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE LORD YOUR GOD. I am your
father as it says, I AM A FATHER TO ISRAEL. It is honorable for the
children to be with their father and it is an honor for the father to
with his children>> (Midrash Shemot Rabah 34;4).
[Jeremiah 31:10] HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD, O YE NATIONS, AND DECLARE
THE ISLES AFAR OFF, AND SAY, HE THAT SCATTERED ISRAEL WILL GATHER HIM,
KEEP HIM, AS A SHEPHERD DOTH HIS FLOCK.
[Jeremiah 31:11] FOR THE LORD HATH REDEEMED JACOB, AND RANSOMED HIM
THE HAND OF HIM THAT WAS STRONGER THAN HE.
Notice the linkage of North Country, coasts of the earth, Israel,
and "Isles afar off".
[Jeremiah 31:12] THEREFORE THEY SHALL COME AND SING IN THE HEIGHT OF
AND SHALL FLOW TOGETHER TO THE GOODNESS OF THE LORD, FOR WHEAT, AND FOR
WINE, AND FOR OIL, AND FOR THE YOUNG OF THE FLOCK AND OF THE HERD: AND
THEIR SOUL SHALL BE AS A WATERED GARDEN; AND THEY SHALL NOT SORROW ANY
[Jeremiah 31:13] THEN SHALL THE VIRGIN REJOICE IN THE DANCE, BOTH
MEN AND OLD TOGETHER: FOR I WILL TURN THEIR MOURNING INTO JOY, AND WILL
COMFORT THEM, AND MAKE THEM REJOICE FROM THEIR SORROW.
[Jeremiah 31:14] AND I WILL SATIATE THE SOUL OF THE PRIESTS WITH
AND MY PEOPLE SHALL BE SATISFIED WITH MY GOODNESS, SAITH THE
Jeremiah (31:15-17) below speaks of Rachel, the mother
the Tribes of Joseph and Benjamin who is pictured as having wept when
descendants were taken into exile from Rama in the territory of
She is told to be comforted for the work has been done. The historical
of the Lost Ten Tribes in exile will have been fulfilled. The children
be coming home to their own territory from the land of the enemy.
[Jeremiah 31:15] THUS SAITH THE LORD; A VOICE WAS HEARD IN RAMAH,
LAMENTATION, AND BITTER WEEPING; RAHEL WEEPING FOR HER CHILDREN REFUSED
BE COMFORTED FOR HER CHILDREN, BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT.
The Lost Ten Tribes were exiled and did not return to the Land of
Neither were they re-united with Judah. They lost their Identity. In
End Times they will return.
[Jeremiah 31:16] THUS SAITH THE LORD; REFRAIN THY VOICE FROM WEEPING,
THINE EYES FROM TEARS: FOR THY WORK SHALL BE REWARDED, SAITH THE LORD;
THEY SHALL COME AGAIN FROM THE LAND OF THE ENEMY.
[Jeremiah 31:17] AND THERE IS HOPE IN THINE END, SAITH THE LORD, THAT
CHILDREN SHALL COME AGAIN TO THEIR OWN BORDER.
The Tribes of Israel will return to the inheritances of their
Malbim: << AND THERE IS HOPE IN THINE END: There is hope for the Last
in the End Time. THY CHILDREN SHALL COME AGAIN TO THEIR OWN BORDER:
that even though the Lost Ten Tribes who were exiled will not return
themselves, their descendants in the End Time will return to their
boundary. Here it does not say they will return from THE LAND OF THE
[as it does for Judah in Jeremiah 31:16 above] for the Ten Tribes are
in the Land of the enemy but they dwell alone in a land faraway from
boundary. They will return at the last to their border.>>
[Jeremiah 31:18] I HAVE SURELY HEARD EPHRAIM BEMOANING HIMSELF THUS;
HAST CHASTISED ME, AND I WAS CHASTISED, AS A BULLOCK UNACCUSTOMED TO
YOKE: TURN THOU ME, AND I SHALL BE TURNED; FOR THOU ART THE LORD MY
The word used for "young bull" (i.e. "bullock") in
is "AEGEL". Historically this very name "Aegel" was a diminutive
nickname) for the ethnic term "Angle". The Angles gave England (i.e.
"Angle-land") its name. Together with the Saxons, Jutes, Vandals, and
others the Angles conquered from the Celts the land that was later
England. The Angles were also called "Aegels". The appellations
and "Aegel" were employed interchangeably. The Hebrew word for young
is "Aegel". Rashi (Rabbi Shlomo Yistchaki 1040-1105 CE) was the
Medieval Jewish Commentator. In commentating on this verse (Jeremiah
Rashi states that the Hebrew word "Aegel" (Young Bull) was a name
to Ephraim. "Aegel" was also an alternative form of the name "Angle"
applied to the English. The English now nickname themselves "John
This is an important point: the verse is strongly indicating that the
English (Angles) are to be identified with Ephraim.
Ephraim shall return. The process of return, it is
inferred, will begin when a feeling of the need for repentance will
begin to be aroused. This feeling will make itself felt in great
after the return is under way. Ephraim reproaches himself for the sins
[Jeremiah 31:19] SURELY AFTER THAT I WAS TURNED, I REPENTED; AND AFTER
I WAS INSTRUCTED, I SMOTE UPON MY THIGH: I WAS ASHAMED, YEA, EVEN
CONFOUNDED, BECAUSE I DID BEAR THE REPROACH OF MY YOUTH.
[Jeremiah 31:20] IS EPHRAIM MY DEAR SON? IS HE A PLEASANT CHILD? FOR
SINCE I SPAKE AGAINST HIM, I DO EARNESTLY REMEMBER HIM STILL: THEREFORE
BOWELS ARE TROUBLED FOR HIM; I WILL SURELY HAVE MERCY UPON HIM, SAITH
<<EPHRAIM MY DEAR SON. Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi said: [the word
means] someone who grew up in a palace [i.e. a noble]. Rabbi Yehoshua
Nachman said: [the word "Ephraim" means] a master and governor. >>
This Midrash refers to the fact that the very name "Ephraim" connotes
nobility [whereas "Menasseh" connotes representative Accountable
Democracy]. Ephraim dominates Britain and Menasseh is prevalent in the
Ephraim (nobility, the aristocratic principle of government) still
in Britain whereas the democratic Principle is paramount in the USA.
[Jeremiah 31:21] SET THEE UP WAYMARKS, MAKE THEE HIGH HEAPS: SET THINE
HEART TOWARD THE HIGHWAY, EVEN THE WAY WHICH THOU WENTEST: TURN AGAIN,
VIRGIN OF ISRAEL, TURN AGAIN TO THESE THY CITIES.
Abarbanel: <<The prophet therefore spoke concerning the Kingdom of
[of the Ten Tribes] SET THEE UP WAYMARKS saying that when you go into
make signs by the routes and waymarks like piles of rocks [i.e. cairns]
stone monuments [Hebrew: Matzavah, i.e. dolmen] so that you may set
heart to the route and remember in order that you may return in the way
went in, return to your city.>> The Radak (Kimchi) interprets the
like manner as intending dolmens and cairns. The verse (Jeremiah 31:21)
refers to dolmens and other Megalithic monuments These form a
link between Israel, Britain, West France, and Scandinavia. The verse
effects links "dolmens" with "Ephraim".
[Jeremiah 31:22] HOW LONG WILT THOU GO ABOUT, O THOU BACKSLIDING
FOR THE LORD HATH CREATED A NEW THING IN THE EARTH, A WOMAN SHALL
Abarbanel on this verse says it refers to the Ten Tribes who at first
be weak like a woman but later would gain strength like a man and
[Jeremiah 31:23] THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, THE GOD OF ISRAEL; AS
THEY SHALL USE THIS SPEECH IN THE LAND OF JUDAH AND IN THE CITIES
WHEN I SHALL BRING AGAIN THEIR CAPTIVITY; THE LORD BLESS THEE, O
OF JUSTICE, AND MOUNTAIN OF HOLINESS.
Judah and Israel will practice true justice and be a holy people.

CITIES THEREOF TOGETHER, HUSBANDMEN, AND THEY THAT GO FORTH WITH

EVERY SORROWFUL SOUL.

OVER THEM, TO PLUCK UP, AND TO BREAK DOWN, AND TO THROW DOWN, AND TO
DESTROY, AND TO AFFLICT; SO WILL I WATCH OVER THEM, TO BUILD, AND TO

us. The Lost Ten Tribes and Judah will both return to the Almighty and
re-united with each other.
