Re: "a wild ass among men; his hand shall be against every man, and every manís hand against him."
Genesis :-o :-o :-o
A Wild Ass Among Men
"And God saw the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth."
And he shall be as a wild ass among men; his hand shall be against every man, and every manís hand against him; and he shall dwell over against all his brethren.
"brethren" - the members of a male religious order.
It can be interpreted in many other ways. It literally refers to a "he". A "he" everyone is against, & "he" is against even "his" own "fellow members of an order." Now, "who" could that possibly "be" ??? Any "ideas" ???
you missed the part about being 'sons of Ishmael' refering to a direct tribe.
