THE BOOK OF KING OG notes
These are some of the notes I drop before Father Martin's translations begin. In fact, this particular paragraph sums up why any scholar of the antediluvian and postdiluvian era should give the translation a read:
Three key pieces of information are made present in the book. The first is the mention of Og's significantly younger son Ogias, (a reveal during the Hundred Thousand Giant War) which can be used to explain the Methuseluh-challenging longevity of King Og. The second is the presentation of Nimrod as an antediluvian (pre-flood) ruler of a Nephilim colony. With Nimrod warring with King Og before the flood in Og's timeline, the scales are tipped towards Nimrod's identity as that of Gilgamesh of ancient Sumerian literature. Lastly, the BOOK OF KING OG presents Nimrod as the potential "father of circumcision" and the leader of the movement to "carve the loins of men." Such explanations help answer questions that have puzzled Biblical and antiquities scholars for centuries.
Father Martin and I are still out of contact. I do hope that he sees what I have done online and recognizes my respect for his project.
