17th Century European Maps showing
Hebrew communities in
Yahuwah's covenant with his people.
19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:
19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and a set-apart nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
19:7 And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which YHWH commanded him.
19:8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that YHWH hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto YHWH.
The result of Yisrael's continued failure
to keep Yahuwah's covenant.
28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of YHWH thy Elohim, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
28:63 And it shall come to pass, that as YHWH rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so YHWH will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.
26:33 And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.
21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
Shown on the map below are the various routes refugees from the nation of Yisrael took into Africa, many into a region near the West Coast. Over a period of 1200 years, this area would become known as Negroland.
This was not the only settlement location for Yahudies; however many Yisraelites after all the many captivities and persecutions would settle here as Hebrew communities.
