Rebellion and Conspiracy Against Omer
Shule’s son Omer becomes king, and has a son, Jared, rebels and leaves for the land of Heth, where he establishes a kingdom, and overthrows his father.
While in his son Jared’s captivity, Omer has more children, two named Esrom and Coriantumr, who resent their brother Jared’s actions; they gather forces, overthrow Jared’s kingdom, spare Jared, and restore the kingdom to their father Omer.
Jared feels sorry for the loss of his kingdom and power, but his daughter begins to devise a plan to get Jared’s kingdom back.
She suggests that they plot to kill Omer by enticing a man named Akish to decapitate Omer in exchange for her hand in marriage.
Jared calls for Akish, and Jared’s daughter for him—he immediately asks for her as wife.
Jared tells Akish that he can have her in exchange for Omer’s head.
Akish gathers his family around, and asks if they will be faithful to him.
They all swear a pact of secrecy to stand by Akish.
Thus, the secret oaths of the devil came among the people.
This is contrary to the will of the Lord, who does not work in secret combinations.
