1 Shĕm ruled in the city of Shalom and he was called Melchizedek, for he reigned as sovereign under his father Noaḥ, and was a kohĕn of the Most High Elohim.

2 After the departure of Ḥam from the presence of his father Noaḥ, Shĕm and Yepheth dwelt together in peace under the benign rule of Noaḥ; but in time, conflict arose among them and Noaḥ led the seed of Shĕm to a new land which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 showed him where they built a city which they called Shalom, the City of Peace.

3 Noaḥ invested his son Shĕm with authority to reign as Prince of Peace, and Noaḥ devoted his days to instructing his people after the Order of the Ancients.

4 And his people dwelt in righteousness and worshipped 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 their Elohim and served Him.

5 They established the order of the shamayim among them and sought after the City of Ḥanoḵ and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came among them and ministered to them and those who sought for the gain of this world went out from among them, for they held all things common after the order of Ḥanoḵ and no man was above his neighbor.
