“He Anointed Emer to Be King”

George Reynolds, Janne M. Sjodahl

Omer began to feel the weight of many years, and anointed his last born son, Emer, to fill his place. Two years afterwards Omer passed away in peace.

It is not easy to imagine human beings as depraved as Jared and Akish; so utterly devoid of conscience and human instincts. But more recent history knows similar character. The assassination of Licinius, the brother-in-law and political rival of Constantine (306-337 A.D.), is branded as an "atrocious and unprovoked breach of faith" by this famous potentate, who is also charged with the murder of his own son, Crispus, who, his father thought, had won too great a degree of popular favor. 1
