    Gold of Ancestors &Pre-Colonial Philippines: It's time we know our Lost Core Identity

    These might change most people's point of view that the Pre colonial Philippines is like a No Man's Land in the middle of the ocean with no trade contacts with its neighbors and that we owe to our colonizers our culture and civilization:

    Map of Spice Routes or Maritime Silk route as verified by UNESCO:

    http://www.maritimeheritage.org/ports/philippines.html
    An important factor in ascertaining the old spice routes from Southeast Asia is the trail of cloves from Maluku and the southern Philippines north to South China and Indochina and then south again along the coast to the Strait of Malacca.
    From there the cloves went to India spice markets and points further west. This north-south direction of commerce through the Philippines has recently been recognized by UNESCO as part of the ancient maritime spice route. The Philippine-Maluku hub persisted into Muslim times and is chronicled in Arabic historical and geographic writings.

    The Laguna Coppeplate Inscription http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laguna_...te_Inscription is the oldest historical document in the Philippines that dates back to 922 AD and written in ancient Kavi and in a language of mixed Old Malay, Old Tagalog, Sanskrit and Old Javanese. This document records that the ruler of Tondo, Jayadewa, carried the Hindu title Senapati or military commander and acted as supreme judge of all the lords of the nearby settlements. Among the counted allies mentioned in the document includes the Hindu Kingdom of Mataram in MEDANG, JAVA. The KING/CHIEF OF MEDANG IN JAVA was acting as a representative of the KING/CHIEF OF DEWATA OR DIWATA IN BUTUAN
    Here is Morrow’s English approximation of his translation:
    Long Live! Year of Siyaka 822, month of Waisaka, according to astronomy. The fourth day of the waning moon, Monday. On this occasion, Lady Angkatan, and her brother whose name is Buka, the children of the Honourable Namwaran, were awarded a document of complete pardon from the Commander in Chief of Tundun, represented by the Lord Minister of Pailah, Jayadewa.

    By this order, through the scribe, the Honourable Namwaran has been forgiven of all and is released from his debts and arrears of 1 kati and 8 suwarna before the Honourable Lord Minister of Puliran, Ka Sumuran by the authority of the Lord Minister of Pailah.

    Because of his faithful service as a subject of the Chief, the Honourable and widely renowned Lord Minister of Binwangan recognized all the living relatives of Namwaran who were claimed by the Chief of Dewata, represented by the Chief of MEDANG.

    Yes, therefore the living descendants of the Honourable Namwaran are forgiven, indeed, of any and all debts of the Honourable Namwaran to the Chief of DEWATA.

    This, in any case, shall declare to whomever henceforth that on some future day should there be a man who claims that no release from the debt of the Honourable…

    which is similar to the Boxer codex http://www.quezon.ph/wp-content/uploads/2008/05/boxer-codex.jpg
    ... is the owner a Sovereign of such a High Status, which will intimidate various rulers of other kingdoms in Southeast Asia if they would be standing side by side by each other. A ruler wearing a golden Sash or UPAVITA would intimidate or humiliate any Majapahit and Srivijayan royalties from neighboring kingdoms. Imagine a Golden Rajah with his Gold warriours would surely outclass any royals and warriors. Is the owner of that Golden Sacred thread a Srivijayan? Remember the other Golden rule: He who has the gold makes the rules. jk

    The maritime thalossocracy or alliance of rajanates called by the early Chinese as Sanfotsi and by the early Arabs as Zabag which Coedes collectively called Srivijayas stemming from a Kedukan bukit inscription found near Palembang was said to have a powerful competitor in the south called Wakwak by the early Arabs or Toupo by the early chinese. Is the Butuan-Toubok(Cotobato)area fits the bill for the powerful competitior of Sanfotsi-Zabag? The Tausugs of the Sulu Sultanate were said to be originally Bisayan migrants from Butuan. The Surigao Treasures billed as Gold of Ancestors is in the area of GOLD RICH BUTUAN.

    Philippine gold artifacts in general tend to be more elaborate and better crafted than most from West Borneo.

    Harrisson looked at the Dr Arturo de Santos collection (part of which was acquired by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas) as well, and observed that “…the range of Philippine gold jewelry…includes many pieces of a complexity and finesse that is beyond anything attempted in Borneo” in so far as what had been found at that time (Harrisson 1968: 56).

    Throughout Indonesia there was a relationship between gold artifacts and the ruling aristocracy, in the class-power centers which developed on the coastal plains around the middle of the 1st millenium AD (Harrisson 1968:44). Precious metals were worked ‘exclusively in those areas where the influence of Hinduism was strongest’: he includes Java, Bali, southern Celebes and the coastal districts of Borneo. These areas developed as centers with established hierarchies, which necessitated the conspicuous display of wealth (Harrisson 1968: 47).

    There was a demand for gold, which the Philippines could have supplied. It would be reasonable to suggest that one of the main sources of Javanese and Bornean gold was the Philippines. That trade would have been important enough to have been direct, by-passing minor pass-on players say, in Sarawak or Sulawesi. Moreover, the early interest in gold from the Philippines would have been in the raw material rather than wrought artifacts. In turn, local interest would have been on goods not made of gold, which they had plenty of.
    http://www.marketmanila.com/archives/the-m...#comment-104413
    quotes Alcina, a Jesuit writing about a hundred years after Legaspi, the conquistadores of the Philippines in the 16th century:
    “I do remember that once when I was solemnizing a marriage of a Bisayan principala, she was so weighed down with jewelry that it caused her to stoop — to me it was close to an arroba or so (1 arroba = 25 lbs.), which was a lot of weight for a girl of twelve. Then again, I also heard it said that her grandfather had a jar full of gold which alone weighed five or six arrobas. Even this much is little in comparison to what they actually had in ancient times.”
    --------------------------
    pupuplatter, United States says:
    I doubt that the makers of what has been called the “Surigao Treasure” were Muslim. Islam came to the Philippine rather late, less than 200 years before the Spanish conquest. We should also avoid idealizing, even as we begin to appreciate, the pre-colonial past: some of the pre-colonial jewelry recovered in Mindanao and elsewhere may have been hastily buried to hide them from Cebuano, Tagalog, or Samal slave raiders and looters. And it is difficult to determine who the “original” inhabitants of Mindanao really are. For much of the Spanish colonial period, agents of the maritime state of Sulu conducted slave raids throughout much of the Philippines. (Bisayans in particular resented this since before Christian conversion they claimed that they were so mighty that they would have been the ones looting, pillaging, and slave raiding their way across the Philippine waters.) These slaves gathered pearls, bird’s nest, wax and other products that were then sold to the agents of the British East India Company who, in turn, sold those products to China. It’s a complicated, global history.

    The crafters of Surigao treasures were most probably Hindu Bisayans, if not, their allies. The Rajanate of Butuan had alliance with the Rajanate of Cebu. Intermarriages of the royals between the two rajanates were common. And so the comment of pupuplatter that the Hindu-Animists Cebuanos would probably raid their allies, their Hindu-Animists brethren in Butuan, is most probably incorrect. While, the Tausug Muslims of Sulu were originally Hindu-animists Bisayans from Butuan having been proselytized by the Bruneians. And the Tausugs indeed raided their pacified Bisayan brothers only during the time of the Spanish colonial perod as they became Muslim while the latter became Christians.

    King Humabon of Cebu, King Siaiu of Mazaua, and King Colambu of Butuan were blood kins accdg to the history books.
    If King Humabon of Cebu, King Siaiu of Mazaua, and King Colambu of Butuan were blood kins, we do not know if they’re first cousins, who was their common ancestry. Was their ancestor from Butuan? Or, conversely, from Cebu?

    D)Southeast Asia Geopolitics
    Controlling the Straits of Malacca

    As evidenced by history, the country that succeeded in controlling the narrow strait between the Malay Peninsula and the island of Sumatra would gain complete control of China's maritime silk route and thus become a thalossocracy - a trading empire. The Srivijaya of South Sumatra did so in 670 AD, the Chola of Southeast India in 1026 AD, the Madjapahit of Java in 1343 AD, the Sultanate of Malacca in 1400 AD, and finally the Portuguese in 1512 AD.*17

    When the Portuguese arrived in Southeast Asia in 1500 AD, they witnessed LUZON's active involvement in the political and economic affairs of those who sought to take control of this economically strategic highway. For instance, the former SULTAN OF MALACCA decided to retake his city from the Portuguese with a fleet of ships from LUZON in 1525 AD.*18 In 1529 AD, the Sultanate of Atjeh on the northern tip of Sumatra became powerful enough to consider controlling the Straits of Malacca. LUZON ships formed part of the Atjehnese fleet that attacked key settlements along the straits. At the same time, LUZON warriors formed part of the opposing BATAK-MENANGKABAU army that besieged Atjeh or ACEH.*19 On the mainland, LUZON warriors aided the BURMESE KING in his invasion of SIAM in 1547 AD. At the same time, LUZON warriors fought alongside the KING OF THAILAND and faced the same elephant army of the Burmese king in the defence of the Siamese capital at Ayuthaya.*20

    The Portuguese were not only witnesses but also direct beneficiaries of LUZON's involvement. Many Lucoes, as the Portuguese called the people of LUZON, chose MALACCA as their base of operations because of its strategic importance. When the Portuguese finally took the MALACCA in 1512 AD, the resident Lucoes held important government posts in the former sultanate. They were also large-scale exporters and ship owners that regularly sent junks to China, Brunei, Sumatra, Siam and Sunda. One LUZON official by the name of SURYA DIRAJA annually sent 175 tons of pepper to China and had to pay the Portuguese 9000 cruzados in gold to retain his plantation. His ships became part of the first Portuguese fleet that paid an official visit to the Chinese empire in 1517 AD.

    In 1591 AD, the CAMBODIAN KING Phra Unkar Langara sent a gift of two royal elephants, gems and horses to the lords of LUZON to petition them to aid him in the war against SIAM.
    E)Trade Missions to China (source: http://nippihistory.hp.infoseek.co.jp/lusunghis-e.htm )
    The name Lusung(LUZON) first appeared in Chinese History in 1373 AD in the Ming Annals. In this document, Lusung was one of the first to answer the call for tribute missions to the new Ming Dynasty [1368 - 1644]. It was Brunei who first responded in 1371 AD, followed by Liuchiu in 1372, and then by Lusung in 1373 AD*11.

    Despite the fact that it made its first appearance on Chinese records as late as 1373 AD, evidences suggests that the Chinese had long known the existence of LUZON as far back as the Sung Dynasty[960 - 1278 AD]. The presence of thousands of recognisable pieces of Sung and Yuan Dynasty porcelains found in ancient burial sites in the Province of Pampanga and Manila suggests an active trade with China long before the Ming period.

    In the mid-1400s, the Ming Empire further limited the number of tribute missions from overseas when it did not compensate the cost of maintaining foreign embassies and entertaining foreign envoys. In 1550 AD, the Ming Empire finally put an end to overseas trade altogether.

    The Ming Empire's ban on overseas trade ironically became a blessing to LUZON. The port cities in Fujian and Canton that had been profiting from overseas trade since the Sung Dynasty cannot simply end its trade relations with Southeast Asia just because the central government in Beijing does not see profit from it. Chinese ships from Fujian and Canton continue to smuggle goods out of China. They chose the port cities of Tondo and Mainila in LUZON as a drop off point. Ships from other parts of Asia, mostly Brunei and Malacca would then sail to LUZON to pick up their percentage of the Chinese goods.
    I looked into the BUTUAN archealogical site, recognized by UNESCO as a world heritage site. I was impressed to learn that they not only had advanced boat making and gold crafting skills, but also traded with countries as far away as Persia.

    Satements of authenticity and/or integrity

    The finds were authenticated by the National Museum, and deeper studies by reputable archaeologists were subsequently done. The oldest Chinese ceramic ware found in Butuan were the Yueh and Yueh type ware which dated back to the Five Dynasties (A.D. 907- 960). In a quantitative survey of the ceramics discovered in Butuan, there were representative types from various Asian realms, ranked according to volume: Chinese (10th - 15th centuries A.D.); Khmer/ Cambodian (9th-10th centuries A.D.); Thai (14th - 15th centuries A.D.) pre-Thai Satingpra (900-1100 A.D.); Haripunjaya (800-900 A.D.); pre-trade Vietnamese (11th - 13th centuries A.D.), and PERSIAN (9th - 10th centuries A.D.)

    I wouldn't be surprised if most of the evidence of an advanced civilized Philippine society was suppressed and destroyed while we were conquered by Spain.

    Saba is a common place name in Southeast Asia. Saba or Sabang or Sapa means estuary is sometime synonymous to Java. The Ancient Indians would call people living in Saba as Savaka sometimes spelled as Javaka. Saba or Sheba or Java could mean a bigger polity encompassing the whole Southeast Asia not just the small island of today known by that name. In medieval period, Java Major would mean Borneo or Sabah while Java minor, the present Java island. In our prehispanic past, there was then a Kingdom called Sapa.

    The ancient Arabs during the medieval period called the empire located in Southeast Asia as Zabag similar sounding with Saba while the ancient Chinese called the same polity as Sanfotsi which a French historian termed as the Sri-Vijayan empire.

    Where King Solomon sourced his gold, spices, etc is the same place called Sheba which is none other than Zabag or Saba which is in Southeast Asia, which could be the true place of Tarshish and Ophir.

    So the King of Seba or Saba must probably be the one who offer gold to the baby Philosopher-Priest-King.

    Tarshish is most probably in the East, on the Erythrean sea or Indian ocean, seeing that "ships of Tarshish" sailed from Ezion-geber, on the Red Sea (1 Kings 9:26; 22:48; 2 Chr. 9:21).

    Unlike Columbus, Magellan seemed less concerned with his own place in prophecy, but evidence points to a spiritual goal also for his journeys. Notes from this writings indicate he was interested in finding the Biblical lands of Tarshish and Ophir, nations which also figured in apocalyptic thought...
    Samuel Purchas writing in the early 17th century stressed the need for Britain to involve itself in the "Ophirian navigation" to secure its own self-vision as the chosen messianic nation but with a more mercantile twist:

    And this also we hope shall one day be the true Ophirian navigation, when Ophir shall come unto Jerusalem as Jerusalem then went unto Ophir. Meanwhile we see a harmony in this sea-trade, and as it were the consent of other creatures to this consent of the reasonable, united by navigation howsoever by rites, languages, customs, and countries separated.

    Magellan appears to have placed Tarshish and Ophir near Ptolemy's Cattigara, the great ancient trading city of the farthest East. When nearing the end of the world circuit, he deliberately set his sights for Cattigara sailing at 12 or 13 degrees North latitude, which he believed to be the proper course for that fabled city.

    In its riches the scriptural land of Ophir prefigures the Indies of which Luis de Haro is chancellor, and Solomon, associated in late sixteenth-century Spain with Philip II, is a type both of Christ and of the Spanish king.

    -- Stephen Rupp in Allegories of Kingship


    "....the principle settler of these archipelagoes was TARSHIS, son of Japheth together with his brothers, as were OPHIR and Hevilath of India..."

    -- Francisco Colin speaking of the Philippines in Labor Evangelica, 1663.



    In an interesting coincidence when Philip II, the "Second Solomon," dispatched Legazpi to occupy the Philippines, the latter encountered and entered into alliance with one Rajah Soliman, king of Manila, during his invasion of Luzon.
    Psalm 72:10 The kings of Tarshish and of distant shores will bring tribute to him; the kings of Sheba and Seba will present him gifts.

    Isaiah 60:6 And all from Sheba will come, bearing gold and incense and proclaiming the praise of the LORD

    Isa 23:6 Pass ye over to Tarshish; howl, ye inhabitants of the isle

    Isa 66:19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, [to] Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, [to] Tubal, and Javan, [to] the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles

    Isa 23:1 The burden of Tyre. Howl, ye ships of Tarshish; for it is laid waste, so that there is no house, no entering in: from the land of Chittim it is revealed to them.

    Eze 27:25 The ships of Tarshish did sing of thee in thy market: and thou wast replenished, and made very glorious in the midst of the seas.

    2Ch 9:21 For the king's ships went to Tarshish with the servants of Huram: every three years once came the ships of Tarshish bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks.

    Psa 48:7 Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.

    Isa 2:16 And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures.

    Isa 60:9 Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the LORD thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.

    Eze 27:25 The ships of Tarshish did sing of thee in thy market: and thou wast replenished, and made very glorious in the midst of the seas.

    BO-OL (BOHOL) WAS A LAND OF OPHIR:
    A Theory

    Part 2. What the Spaniards believed


    Proem

    After the death of King Solomon, Ophir was abandoned and soon forgotten. After the passage of hundreds of years nobody would know where or what is Ophir. The other word associated with Ophir is the word "Tarshish." Nobody also knew what it meant. In old translations of the Bible it was supposed also to be a place. However, in new translations of the Bible, it is used to refer to the fleet that went to Ophir.

    What happened to the Hebrew or Jewish settlements that were established to process the gold before they were shipped back to King Solomon? Nobody also knew. However, we knew that because of their religious beliefs the Hebrews tend to survive as a separate enclave wherever they settled.

    What the Spaniards Believed

    In Spain there is a book called Coleccion General de Documentos Relativos a las Islas Filipinas. It is found in the Archivos de Indias de Sevilla. It was reprinted in 1920 in Barcelona, Spain by the Compania General de Tabaccos de Filipinas. Its Tomo III (1519-1522), pages 112-138, contains Document No. 98 describing how to locate the land of Ophir.

    This same volume also contains the official documents regarding the voyage of Ferdinand Magellan. It also contains the logbook of Francisco Albo, the chief pilot of the ship Victoria. This logbook is also one of the main references regarding the voyage of Ferdinand Magellan.

    Since this book contains important documents, we can discern that the Spaniards did not really believe that Ophir was in India. In fact the Cabot expedition that left Spain on April 3, 1526 had a secret mission, "to search for a route to Tarsis, OPHIR, Oriental Cathay (China), and Japan."

    The Travel Guide

    Document No. 98 describes how to locate the land of Ophir. The travel guide started from the Cape of Good Hope in Africa to India, to Burma, to Sumatra, to Moluccas, to Borneo, to Sulu, to China, then finally Ophir.

    Ophir was "…in front of China towards the sea, of many islands where the Moluccans, Chinese, and Lequios met to trade…"

    This group of islands could not be Japan because the Moluccans did not get there. It could not be Taiwan because it is not "of many islands." Only the present day Philippines could satisfy the description.

    Jewish Settlements

    Along the route described by Document No. 98 are locations of old Jewish settlements.

    It would not be surprising for that was the procedure used by King Solomon's fleet.

    Settlements were established at selected places to trade and process the gold and silver. The ships will collect the gold and silver and bring it to King Solomon. To the credit of the Hebrew people, their settlement remained true to the Jewish faith even for thousands of years. Settlements were found in India, Burma, Sumatra, and Vietnam (Annam and Cochin China).

    Who Were the Lequios?

    Spanish records mention of a mysterious people known as Lequios. Modern historians variously identified them as Okinawans, Koreans, or Vietnamese. They were favorite targets of Spanish ships during the time of General Miguel Lopez de Legazpi because the ships of the Lequios were always laden with gold and silver.

    According to Documents 98, the Lequios were big, bearded, and white men. They were only interested in gold and silver when trading at Ophir. Okinawans, Koreans, and Vietnamese people are not big nor are they white. Their beards are just small goatees and could not satisfy the word "bearded". Therefore they were not the Lequios. So who could the Lequios be but the remnants of Hebrews and Phoenicians who have made some enclaves along the Southeast Asian shores?

    The Hebrew word "LEQOT" or "LIQQET" means to gather, to glean. It resembles closely the word Lequios. It will fit the men of King Solomon's fleet who gathered gold and silver. (Note: The Hebrew alphabet has no small letters.)

    Where Was Ophir?

    There is no doubt that the group of islands in front of China towards the sea is the present day Philippines. The question is where was Ophir located in the Philippines?

    Ancient Chinese records say that the ancient trading places in the Philippines were Ma-yi and Pulilu. Dr. Otley Beyer identified Ma-yi as Mindoro. Dr. Jose Rizal, Blumentrit, Robertson, and Stangl say that it was Luzon in part or in whole.

    Dr. Jose Rizal identified "Pulilu" as Bo-ol or Bohol. Nobody disputed Dr. Jose Rizal. So there are only three possible places in the Philippines that could be identified as Ophir, they are Luzon, Mindoro, and Bohol.

    OPHIR

    The Ancient-Name of the Islands of the Philippines
    (Only the descendants of Levites Datu Gerson, Datu Merari and few descendants of Datu Cohat reached the island of Ophir, but the High Priest comes in the lineage of Aaron left in Yahrushalom)
    Section: 1
    People in the Islands of Ophir speaks Ancient-Hebrew Language

    Who is Ophir ?
    Ophir written in the Old Testament of the Bible 1 Kings 22:48, 9:28 and 22:49,
    Psalms 45:9, Isaiah 13:12, Job 22:24, 28:16, 1Chron. 24:4, 1:23, Genesis 10:25-26.
    In Genesis 10:25-30 “ And Heber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg, for his days was the earth divided and his brother’s name was Yoktan. And Yoktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Yerah, and Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah, and Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba, and OPHIR, and Havilah, and Yobab; all these were the sons of Yoktan. And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar a mount of the EAST”.

    The language of Ophir:
    The language of Heber is the same language of Adam and when the language was confused, only Heber retained the original language of Adam and was called Hebrew from Heber’s name and therefore the language of his two sons Peleg and Yoktan will be Hebrew and the language of Ophir the son of Yoktan will be Hebrew also.

    The language of Abraham:
    Peleg son is Reu, reu son is Serug, Serug son is Nachor, Nachor son is Thare, Thare had tree sons Abram become Abraham, Nahor and Haran the father of Lot. Abraham is Hebrew in Genesis 14:13.

    Historians said about Ophir:

    The western writers garlanded the Philippine land with more names such as Maniolas, Ophir, Islas del Oriente, Islas del Poniente, Archipelago de San Lazaro, Islas de L*****s (Island of Mortars), Archipelago de Magallanes and Archipelago de Legaspi. The western writers and ocean navigators called the islands Ophir before the Western people arrived and re-named it as Felipinas from the name of King Felipe of Spain.When the first European historian set their foot in the land of Ophir, it was written by historian Gregorio F. Zaide in page 2 and page 24 of History of the Filipino People, that Padre Chirino an eminent Jesuit historian found in Tagalog language that “it has the Mystery and obscurities of the Hebrew language”.
    Therefore in the islands of Ophir the people speaks Ancient-Hebrew language.

    Escaped Remnant from Assyria speaks Ancient-Hebrew language

    When the word of YAHWEH came into Abraham in Genesis 15:13-14 “And Yahweh said unto Abraham, know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in the land that is not theirs, and shall serve them, and they shall afflict them 400 years; and also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge; and afterward shall they come out with great substance”.

    In Genesis 21:12-13 “Yahshaak (Isaac) shall thy seed be called and also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, BECAUSE HE IS THY SEED”. Remember both Yahshaak and Ismaale (Ismael) are the SEEDS of Abraham and it was Ismaale that settled first in Masry (Egypt) in Genesis 21:21 later the son of Yahshaak named Yahkoob (Jacob) and his sons came later in Masry in Genesis 46:3 “I am YAHWEH, the Mighty One of thy father, fear not to go down into Masry; for I will make thee a great nation”. Therefore the seeds of Abraham by his two sons Ismaale and Yahshaak seed become strangers in the land that is not theirs in the land of Masry as prophesied by Yahweh in Genesis 15:13-14. the prophecy say after 400 years shall they come out of that nation whom they serve in Exodus 12:52 “that YAHWEH did bring the children of Yahshurun (Yisrawale or Israel) out of the land of Masry by their armies”.
    In the land of Masry the tribe of Ismaale and tribe of Yahshurun were the only circumcised tribes, to differentiates from each other, Yahshurunites was called Yisrawale (Israel) meaning “prince of Sarah” and Ismaale was called Ishma-ale meaning “ in the name-of-Sarah”.

    The 12 sons of Yahshurun (Jacob) called 12 Tribes of Yahshurun was originally 12, but when Yahshurun adopted the two sons of Yohseph, Efraim and Manase in Genesis 48:5-6, the seat of Yohseph was replaced by his two sons and therefore the Tribe of Yahshurun become 13 Tribes that goes out of the land of Masry on the time of Moshe (Moses).
    The Tribe of Levi assigned for Priesthood in Exodus 29, the three sons of Levi Gerson, Cohat and Merari was distributed into 12 Tribes of Yisrawale to hold the office of Priesthood and Temple services for YAHWEH in Joshua 21:1-8 and 1Chronicles 6:63-81.

    Three Sons of Levi Assigned Priesthood:
    The Sons of Yahshurun in order of birth in his four wives Leah, Rachel, Bilha, Zilpa:
    Ruben (Leah) - Merari Priesthood
    Simeon (Leah) – Cohat Priesthood
    Levi (Leah)sons= Gerson, Cohat, Merari
    Yahuwdah (Leah) – Cohat Priesthood
    Dan (Bilha-Rachel ) – Cohat Priesthood
    Nepthali (Bilha-Rachel) – Gerson Priesthood
    Gad (Zilpa-Leah) – Merari Priesthood
    Asher (Zilpa-Leah) – Gerson Priesthood
    Isachar (Leah) – Gerson Priesthood
    Zabulon (Leah) – Merari Priesthood
    Dinah (Leah)
    Yohseph (Rachel) two sons Manaseh and Efraim
    Manaseh-half tribe - Gerson Priesthood
    Manaseh-half tribe – Cohat Priesthood
    BenYahmin(Rachel) - Cohat Priesthood

    Remember that Yohseph was sold to Ismaalites and brought by Masryian (Egyptian) to become slave but later become free in slavery and also free to choose his wife with permission from the Pharaoh and his name was change into Zaphenath-paneah. A slave shall be returned, Yohseph was bought from tribe of Ismaalites and was returned to Ismaalites. He was given in marriage to Asenath the daughter of Potiphera the Priest is a descendant of Ismaale who beget 12 princes also like Yahshurun had 12 sons and one of them Levi was appointed to Priesthood, Exodus 29, Genesis 17:7, 17:23,16:12 “he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren”. When Abraham died it was Ismaale and Yahshaak that buried him in the cave of Machpelah next to his wife Sarah in Genesis 25:9.

    The descendant of Ismaale was brought by the two sons of Yohseph and the descendant of Yahshaak was brought by the 12 Tribes of Yahshurun into the land of Masry and came out by their armies in Exodus 12:52, the prophecy of Yahweh on Genesis 15:13-14 was fulfilled.


    Two Kingdoms:
    The 12 Tribes established their Kings and later was divided into two kingdoms the Kingdom of Yisrawale and the Kingdom of Yahuwdah. Yeroboam become king of Yisrawale with priesthoods from Levites Cohat, Gerson and Merari. Rehoboam become king of Yahuwdah with priesthood from Levite Cohat.

    The Kingdom of YISRAWALE:
    10 Tribes of Yisrawale and their City is Samaria with Cohat, Gerson and Merari priesthoods:

    King Yeroboam of Yisrawale REMOVED the Priesthood of Cohat, Gerson and Merari and REPLACED them with people who were NOT LEVITES:
    King Yeroboam of Yisrawale built temples in high places and made Priest from among the people who were not Levites and established a Feast in the eighth month instead of seventh month like the Kingdom of Yahuwdah is celebrating the Feast in 1 Kings 12:31-32, 1 Kings 13:33-34.

    Levites Cohat, Gerson and Merari Removed from Priesthoods of the kingdom of Yisrawale left the land of Yisrawale and their possession and came to kingdom of YAHUWDAH in the city of Yahrusalem:
    2Chronicles 11:13-17 ‘and the Priests and the Levites that were in all Yisrawale resorted to him out of all their coasts, for the Levites left their suburbs and their possession and came to Yahuwdah and Yahrusalem: for King Yeroboam and his sons had cast them off from executing the priest’s office unto Yahweh and he ordained him priests for the high places and for the devils and for the calves which he had made. And after them out of all the tribes of Yisrawale, such as set their hearts to seek Yahweh Mighty One of Yisrawale came to Yahrusalem to sacrifice unto Yahweh the Mighty One of their fathers. So they strengthened the kingdom of Yahuwdah and made Rehoboam the son of YahdidiYah (Solomon) strong, three years: for three years they walked in the way of DowDow (David) and YahdidiYah.”

    Yisrawale deported to Assyria and they were replaced in their land by people from 5 nations Abba, Cutha, Separvaim, Hammath and Babylonia:
    By this acts of Yeroboam king of Yisrawale, Yahweh allowed them to become captives and deported into Assyria and they were replaced in their land by people from Abba, Cutha, Separvaim, Hammath and Babylonia in 2 King 17:24. The priests of Yisrawale that was deported to Assyria were not Levites.

    Prophecy of Prophet Isaiah about Escaped Remnant from Assyria: Isaiah 11:11
    Prophet Isaiah mentioned Remnant that Escaped from Assyrian captivity in Isaiah 11:11, those Escaped Remnant they speaks pure Ancient-Hebrew language for they were not polluted of the captivity language 2 Kings 18:26

    Therefore Escaped Remnant from kingdom of Yisrawale speaks Ancient-Hebrew language:

    Escaped Remnant from Babylonia speaks Ancient-Hebrew language

    The Kingdom of YAHUWDAH:
    2 Tribes of the kingdom of Yahuwdah and their City is Yahrusalem with Cohat Priesthood:
    Yahuwdah (Leah) –Cohat
    BenYahmin(Rachel) - Cohat



    The Levites Priests of Cohat, Gerson and Merari removed from kingdom of Yisrawale did not stay long in the kingdom of YAHUWDAH:
    The Levites priests of Cohat, Gerson and Merari left Yisrawale and came to join Cohat the priesthood of YAHUWDAH in Yahrusalem, BUT the priests from Yisrawale Cohat, Gerson and Merari was not in the record in the time of King Yahoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 20:18-19 “and the Levites of the children of (Cohat) Cohathites and the children of Corhites stood up to praise Yahweh the Mighty One of Yisrawale with a loud voice on high.”

    ESCAPED REMNANT FROM ASSYRIA SPEAKS ANCIENT-HEBREW:
    The Priests from Cohat, Gerson and Merari that was removed from the kingdom of Yisrawale were the Escaped Remnant mentioned by Prophet Isaiah in 11:11 .

    Kingdom of Yahuwdah was Deported into the land of Babylonia:

    After 114 years from the time when the Kingdom of Yisrawale was deported into Assyria, the people of the Kingdom of Yahuwdah was deported into the land of Babylonia and only poor people left in Yahrusalem the city of the Kingdom of Yahuwdah. The king of Babylon appointed Gedaliah to rule the poor people left in Yahrusalem but Gedaliah was killed by Ismaale and Ismaale was killed by Yohanan and all the people was afraid that they may all be killed by the king of Babylon, so they escaped into Masry with Prophet YahremiYah (Jeremiah) and all died in Masry but very few in numbers was able to return to Yahrusalem in Jeremiah 44:14. The Levites Priesthood from Cohat of the kingdom of YAHUWDAH was brought to Babylonia but it was very few remnant left as mentioned by Prophet Isaiah in 1:9:

    Those called VERY SMALL REMNANT LEFT by Prophet Isaiah in 1:9, the descendants were ZechariYah, Elizabeth and son YahYah. Yohseph, Marriam’s son Yahshu’a the Messiah.


    ESCAPED REMNANT FROM BABYLONIA SPEAKS ANCIENT-HEBREW:

    To distinguish those Escaped Remnant they speaks pure Ancient-Hebrew language for they were not polluted of the captivity language while those Left in Captivity speaks the Modern Aramaic-Chaldean- Hebrew language.
    Those Escaped Remnant complexion and color of their skin is tan (kayumanggi) Song of Solomon 1:5-6 for they were not brought to marriage to foreigners. They were not tall as the height of King Dowdow (David) and they hide the name Yahweh as “KEY” to avoid the on-going persecutions for those worshippers of the name Yahweh the Mighty One of Abraham, Yahshaak and Yahcoob. They hide the name YAHWEH when the Sanhedrin (Supreme Court) of Yisrawale prohibits the pronunciation of the Sacred Name Yahweh an offense of Blasphemy (Encyclopedia Judaica ‘YHWH’) and Luke 11:52.

    Prophecy of Prophet Isaiah on Escaped Remnant in 66:19
    “and I will set a SIGN among them and I will send those that Escape of them unto the nations to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory: and they shall declare my glory among the gentiles, and they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto YAHWEH out of all nations upon horses and in chariots and litters and upon mules and upon swift beast to my Holy Mountain Yahrusalem said Yahweh as the children of Yahshurun bring an offering in a clean vessel into the House of YAHWEH and I will also take of them for Priests and for Levites said Yahweh”.

    ESCAPED REMNANT FROM JAVAN SPEAKS ANCIENT-HEBREW:

    Please See Map of Sri-Visjaya Kingdom on Collier’s Encyclopedia 1991 edition
    Modern scholars of the 20th century re-discovered the Sri-Visjaya kingdom and revealed traces of the ancient origins of the Filipinos especially the Visaya and Tagalog.

    Colliers Encyclopedia
    1991 Edition, vol.3, p.50
    Srivijaya Kingdom. In the seventh century China was reunited under T’ang Dynasty, thus providing an enormous market. Several port-states tried to tap the China trade, but the kingdom of Srivijaya, located near the present city of Palembang on Sumatra, succeeded in crushing its rivals and imposing its authority on both Sumatra and the Malay Peninsula, straddling the Straits of Malacca. Through a combination of bribery, political manipulation, and punitative expeditions the other ports were forced to submit or were destroyed, and Srivijaya became known to the Chinese as the sole state with which they could trade. Several extant inscriptions from the late seventh century-royal edicts carved on stones – attest to the absolute loyalty demanded by the king of Sri-Visjaya of his servants, subjects, and vassals. Passing traders were forced to stop at Srivijaya, where they have to pay tolls demanded by the king for passage through the straits. From these tolls derived the royal revenues, but the tolls were kept moderate so that traders would not consider using the more difficult land route across the Malay Peninsula. The key to Srivijaya’s power was its navy, which was needed to destroy its rivals, Srivijayan naval expedition may even have reached as far as Cambodia in the 8th century, and in the 11th century Srivijaya itself was raided from Ceylon.
    In dominating the Straits of Malacca, Srivijaya controlled one of the key points in the whole Asian trade system. Through its empire passed all the wondrous goods desired by Asian kings and aristocrats-gems, precious metals, scented woods, and even African lions to amuse the emperor of China-as well as the bulk trade in such goods as rice. In the practice, of course, the dominance of Srivijaya and its successors was often less than complete. Especially during periods when trade declined, vassals were likely to fall away as the money and prestige offered by the king to entice their loyalty also declined. But the tradition of central port on the straits dominating the trade routes and of a single supreme king survived for many centuries.
    By about the sixth century the economic role of Indonesia in the China trade was beginning to change. Indonesia traders began to sell the natural products of Indonesia, sometimes substituting them for the luxury goods the Chinese customarily imported from western Asia. In particular, Indonesia benzoin began to be substituted for the aromatic gum resins. Srivijaya and its successors continued to function as entrepot ports, where goods were transshipped, but the importance of Indonesia’s own products also increased.

    Srivijaya was a Buddhist kingdom. Indeed its religious scholarship was internationally so highly valued that Chinese Buddhist pilgrims making the long journey to India wouldspend several years in Srivijaya. There they studied the scriptures and rules for monks before going to India.
    Srivijaya’s wealth and power, waxed and waned with changing trade condition and with the rise and fall of its rivals. It was finally destroyed by the Javanese in the 14th century and the royal family and the traders of Srivijaya moved across the straits to Malaya, where eventually they established the port of Malacca in about 1400. Srivijaya, one of the greatest trade empires of Asia, was then so completely forgotten that even its name was unknown until its history was rediscovered by modern scholars in the 20th century.
    Mataram Kingdom. To the east of Sumatra lies Java, and there, too, a great kingdom emerged beginning in about the eighth century. The Kingdom of Mataram, near the present city of Yogyakarta (Jogjakarta) in central Java, reached its greatest power in the ninth century. The dynasty that founded Mataram took the Sanskrit name Sailendra – the king of the mountains – and the title Maharaja, they were Mahayana Buddhists. They left behind many famous temples, which their contemporaries, the kings of Srivijaya seem not to have done. Among the most famous Mataram temples is Burabudur, which was built about 800. It is an enormous artificial temple-mountain, which miles of bas-reliefs depicting the life story of Buddha. At the nearby temple of Merdut are large stone statues of the Buddha and two Bodhisattvas, which are the most exquisite in all of Asia.
    Sailendra power in Mataram was challenged by a rival royal line who were not Buddhists but followers of the Hindu god Shiva. In 856 there was a battle between the two rivals, which the Sailendra lost. The last surviving Sailendra prince fled from Java to Sumatra, where, for reasons that are not known, he become the king of Srivijaya. His successors in Mataram built the very beautiful and graceful temple complex Prambanan, just east of Yogyakarta. There, temples to the Hindu gods Brahma and Vishnu flank a high central tower where Shiva was worshipped in four aspects. The bas reliefs depict the story of the Hindu Ramayana epic.
    Mataram was located on the plain of Kedu in central Java, one of the richest rice-growing areas of Indonesia.

    Original Sri-Visjaya Religion is Not Buddhist:

    This Sri-Visjaya Kingdom is one of the greatest trade empires of Asia. The Sri-Visjaya on the 7th century when China was reunited under the T’ang Dynasty, the Sri-Visjaya become known to the Chinese as the sole state with which they could trade. Passing traders were forced to stop at Sri-Visjaya, where they have to pay tolls demanded by the king of Sri-Visjaya for passage through the straits of Malacca. Sri-Visjaya controlled one of the key points in the whole Asian trade system.

    Sri-Visjaya Religion
    Sri-Visjaya’s religious scholarship was internationally so highly valued that Chinese Buddhist pilgrims making the long journey to India would spend several years in Sri-Visjaya, there they studied the scriptures and rules for monks before going to India. This may think that Sri-Visjaya’s religion is a Buddhist religion. That happened when the original 7th century Sri-Visjaya king and royal families and traders moved across the straits to Malaya on the 8th century where they established the port of Malacca in about 1400 and they have trade in Borneo and Sulu ISLES AFAR OFF. A great kingdom emerged beginning in about 8th century the Kingdom of Mataram in central Java. The dynasty that founded Mataram took the Sanskrit name Sailendra – the king of the mountains – and the title Maharaja, they were Mahayana Buddhists. They left behind many famous temples, which their contemporaries, the kings of Sri-Visjaya seem not to have done. Among the most famous Mataram temples is Burabudur, which was built about 800. At the nearby temple of Merdut are large stone statues of the Buddha and two Bodhisattvas, which are the most exquisite in all of Asia. A rival royal line that was not Buddhists but followers of the Hindu god Shiva challenged Sailendra power in Mataram. In 856 there was a battle between the two rivals, which the Sailendra lost and the last surviving Sailendra prince fled from Java to Sumatra, where, for reasons that are not known, he become the king of Sri-Visjaya in Sumatra. Therefore become the new king of Sri-Visjaya in Sumatra is Sailendra. This are the reasons that Sri-Visjaya’s religion was thought to be Buddhist.
    The original 7th century Sri-Visjaya king and royal families and traders moved across the straits to Malaya on the 8th century where they established the port of Malacca made trade in Borneo and Sulu. The second Sri-Visjaya of 8th century was ruled by Sailendra a Buddhist was finally destroyed by the Javanese in the 14th century and this people of Sri-Visjaya were different religion than the original first Sri-Visjaya of 7th century. In fact the kingdom of Sailendra who become king of Sri-Visjaya were Mahayana Buddhist that this Mahayana Buddhists left behind many famous temples, which their contemporaries the king of original 7th century Sri-Visjaya seem not to have done. Therefore the Sri-Visjaya that was defeated by the Javanese in the 14th century was the second Sri-Visjaya of 8th century who become Buddhists and ruled by king Sailendra a Mahayana Buddhists. The first Sri-Visjaya of 7th century did not make any temples of worship and were not Buddhists and they fled to Malacca and trade with Borneo and Sulu. The historian claiming that Sri-Visjaya is a Buddhists kingdom is referring to the second Sri-Visjaya of 8th century that was ruled by Sailendra a Mahayana Buddhists but not the original Sri-Visjaya of the 7th century that moved across the straits to Malaya on the 8th century where they established the port of Malacca made trade in Borneo and Sulu.

    DATU from Yahshear-Dath (Seserdote or Priest of Yahshear):
    Yahkoob was named Yahshear Genesis 32:28
    Yahshear sons was called Prince of Sarah (Yisrawale or Israel)


    Bisaya and Tagalog

    At the same period the well-known Maragtas in Visaya’s history claimed that ten (10) Datu lead by Datu Puti arrived in Panay and bought the plain land of Panay island. This people were called “VISAYA” the descendant of original Sri-Visjaya of 7th century from Borneo and Sulu. They carried the word “ya-we” in Visaya which means “key”, this was mentioned in Luke 11:52 “woe unto you, lawyers, for ye have taken away the “key of knowledge”, (the scribes took away the name Yahweh and replaced it with other name Adonai, the key is the name Yahweh). Another two (2) Datu, Datu Dumangsil and Datu Balensusa reached Taal (Batangas) where the language of the two Datu believed to be the origin of Tagalog language. The word Datu in Hebrew language means royal edict or statute, commandment, decree, law, manner. The Datu is the one who ruled and make decree, law and a royal family in Filipino history. The title “DATU” from the word Yashear-Dath or of Seser-dote or Priests of Yahshurun (Israel).

    ESCAPED REMNANT FROM ASSYRIA SPEAKS ANCIENT-HEBREW:
    The Priests from Cohat, Gerson and Merari that was removed from the kingdom of Yisrawale were the Escaped Remnant mentioned by Prophet Isaiah in 11:11 . they speak Ancient-Hebrew.

    The language of Sri-Visjaya is Ancient-Hebrew:
    According to Merriam-Webster International Unabridged dictionary that the Tagalog language and Visaya language comes from one group of language called Tagala that is branch-language of ancient Malay-Javanese language called Kawi which is now instinct. The Tagalog language has 30,000 root words, 700 affixes, and the root words which are famous about 5,000 words from Spanish, 3,200 from Malay-Indonesia, 1,500 words from Hebrew, 1,300 words from English, 300 from Sanskrit, 250 words from Arabic and very few words from Persian, Japanese, Russian. The Latin language was influenced from Spanish and English. The language of Visaya and Tagalog has many similarities about 3,800 well known words are the same and similar in usage. The Hiligaynon is the language of Visaya is also like the Higaynon in Hebrew word means “solemn sound”. The word “ya-wa” means a cursing word means evil, while “wa” means “not in you” in Visayan language. The word ‘ya” in Hebrew means “Yah” the short form of the name of the Mighty One of Yahshurunites (Israelites). Therefore the meaning of “ya-wa” means “Yahweh is not in you” or “evil” which is also a curse word in Hebrew language. The word ‘po’ derived from ‘ho’ is an ancient primitive Hebrew words are being mentioned in all dialects of the Philippines.
    The First European Historian Pedro Chirino wrote that Tagalog is Hebrew
    When the first European set their foot in the land of Mortar (translated by Fernando Magallanes as L*****s means mortar), it was written by historian Gregorio F. Zaide in page 2 and page 24 of History of the Filipino People, that Padre Chirino an eminent Jesuit historian found in Tagalog language that “it has the Mystery and obscurities of the Hebrew language”.

    The Title “SRI” become “Si”:
    The word “Sri” comes from Indian language means Prince, Holiness and a word of praise and respect to respectable and honorable person in India. The word “Vis” means Spirit in Samsi English Dictionary. Therefore the meaning of Sri-Vis-Jaya is “Prince or Holiness Spirit of Jaya”.

    In the Philippine History when Fernando Magallanes (Ferdinand Magellan) reached the soil of now the Philippines he met for blood-compact the brother of Raja Kulambo of Limasawa and that person is called “Si”- Agu (Siagu). Notice also the name Si-Malakas, Raja Si-Lapulapu. This was written by Historian Teodoro A. Agoncillo 1974 edition page 35 and 36 Filipino History. “Si” is the same as the “Sri” in Sri-Visjaya is a title of honorable person, which means Prince or Holiness.

    Escaped Remnant Relations with India:
    During Romans Empire the Messiah of Nazareth appeared in Yahrusalem and gave instructions to his 12 disciples in Matthew 10:5-6 “These twelve Yahshu’a sent fort, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles (uncircumcised), and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel”. In Bible Dictionary of the Holy Bible of 1864 the Apostle Thomas was in India and mentioned that he was speared to death by King Misdeus of India. This is an evidence that the Apostles were looking for the lost tribe of Israel in India. In book of Ester 1:1, India was mentioned the furthest place controlled by Kingdom of Persia before Greek and Roman Empires.

    The Holy Koran:
    In Holy Koran the name of John the son of ZechariYah the priest is called Yahya (please see photo copy of Sura: Mary page 50 ). In Medina the city of Yathrib where residing the tribe of Yahuwdah (Jews) called “Ansar”. This was about before 622 AD. The Prophet of Islam religion Prophet Mohammed (Peace be upon Him) married KhadiYah a widow from Syria and they reside together with the Ansar people in Medina the city of Yathrib. The name Yahya was famous and it was a name of a Yahuwdi (Jewish) person and the name of the son of the Levite Priest ZechariYah and Elizabeth the great granddaughter of Aaron the High Priest-the elder brother of Moses. At that time the Arab people were not yet converted into Mohammed religion and therefore the name YahYa is a Hebrew name not an Arabic name.

    The Holy Bible:
    In the New Testament of the Bible a person with a name John (Yahya) is the same name whom the Messiah of Nazareth says that person will not die until Yahshu’a Messiah comes again, John 21:21-23 “Peter seeing him saith to Yahshu’a, ‘Yahshu’a and what shall this man do’? Yahshu’a saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou me” Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Yahshu’a said not unto him, he shall not die; but, if I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?

    The letter J:
    The Encyclopedia Americana contains the following on the J:
    “The form of J was unknown in any alphabet until the 14th century. Either symbol (J, I) used initially generally had the consonantal sound of Y as in year. Gradually, the two symbols (J, I) were differentiated, the J usually acquiring consonantal force and thus becoming regarded as a consonant, and the I becoming a vowel. It was not until 1630 that the differentiation became general in England.”
    The letter J was invented in 1633 AD about 371 years ago there is no letter “J”, and the letter J comes from letter Y and read as ‘y’. If the name of John is YahYa whom Yahshu’a Messiah said will be alive until Yahshu’a comes back, the name Sri-Vis-Jaya is supposed to be Sri-Vis YahYa.

    The Laguna Copperplate Inscription
    • A Philippine Document from 900 A.D. has possible connection of the early people with Sri-Visjaya Kingdom.
    Copperplate
    A small, innocent-looking object found in 1989 on the southeastern shore of Laguna de Ba'y was such a find. It now threatens to upset our basic understanding of Philippine history. The object is a thin copperplate measuring less than 8x12 inches in size and is inscribed with small writing that had been hammered into its surface.
    The black, rolled-up piece of metal was found by a man dredging for sand near the mouth of the Lumbang River where it emptied into Laguna de Ba'y. The man could just have easily thrown it away as just another piece of junk that tended to clog his equipment as he tried to make a living. It was not porcelain, like those he found before and was able to sell for good money to the antique dealers from Manila.
    Those dealers have been frequenting the area because it was a rich source of artifacts that were in demand among the rich in Manila. These artifacts provided another welcome source of income for people like this man who struggled to provide for his family.
    Fortunately, the sand man decided to keep that piece of metal and take another look. Upon unrolling, it turned out that there was some kind of writing on the crumpled and blackened metal plate. He finally sold it to one of the dealers for almost nothing for it was unlike anything ever found before and nobody knew what it was.
    Because it was not a recognizable object, the dealer could not find a private buyer for it. In desperation, he offered it to the National Museum of the Philippines, normally the buyer of last resort for unsold objects. The copper object is now called "Laguna Copperplate Inscription" (LCI).
    It languished at the National Museum as supposedly qualified scholars passed up the chance to evaluate the artifact. They were either too busy or not interested, but perhaps intimidated by the prospect of working on something they had no knowledge of.
    Fortunately, the ability and persistent effort of one man paid off in unlocking the secrets of the LCI. Antoon Postma, a Dutch national who has lived most of his life among the Mangyans in the Philippines and the director of the Mangyan Assistance & Research Center in Panaytayan, Mansalay, Oriental Mindoro, was able to translate the writing. His effort is all the more remarkable when you consider that the text was in a language similar to four languages (Sanskrit, Old Tagalog, Old Javanese, and Old Malay) mixed together.
    The text was written in Kavi, a mysterious script which does not look like the ancient Tagalog script known as baybayin or alibata. Neither does it look similar to other Philippine scripts still used today by isolated ethnic minorities like the Hanunóos and the Buhids of Mindoro, and the Tagbanwas of Palawan. It is the first artifact of pre-Hispanic origin found in the Philippines that had writing on copper material.
    Indeed, artifacts of pre-Hispanic writing are so rare that only three had been previously found and made available to researchers. They are the 14-15th century Butuan silver strip, the 10th century Butuan ivory seal, and the 15th century Calatagan jar. The writings on these three previous finds have eluded attempts to decipher them so far.
    Important Date
    Postma's translation provides a lot of exciting surprises. Like most other copperplate documents, it gives a very precise date from the Sanskrit calendar which corresponds to 900 A.D. in our system. It contains placenames that still exist around the Manila area today. It also lists the names of the chiefs of the places mentioned.
    The date is important because a country's history is considered to begin with the first dated document recorded in it. This newly found document pushes the "starting point" of Philippine history all the way back to 900 A.D., 621 years earlier than the previously accepted date of 1521 when Antonio Pigafetta wrote his observations during his voyage with Magellan.
    Authenticity
    Although there were some differences between the LCI and the copperplates found in Indonesia, they were for legitimate reasons and their consensus was that the LCI was authentic.
    The text on Indonesian copperplates of the same era was mostly in Old Javanese and, as was customary at that time, mention the name of King Balitung (899-910 A.D.). Unlike its Indonesian cousins, the language of the LCI was not Old Javanese. That the LCI did not mention the king's name was another clue that the LCI did not come from Indonesia.
    However, the biggest difference was in the way the copperplate was inscribed. Indonesian copperplates were prepared by heating them until they became soft. Then a stylus was used to impress the letters on the soft metal, creating smooth and continuous strokes. The Philippine copperplate, on the other hand, was inscribed by hammering the letters onto the metal using a sharp instrument. The letters show closely joined and overlapping dots from the hammering.
    Philippine connection
    It was left for Postma to establish the LCI's Philippine connection. When he first saw the LCI, he thought it may originally have come from Indonesia but made to appear like it was found to the Philippines so that it could be sold as a valuable antique. The text of the LCI convinced him of its Philippine provenance.
    The LCI was an official document issued to clear a person by the name of Namwaran, his family, and all their descendants of a debt he had incurred. In the old Philippines, an unpaid debt usually resulted in slavery not only for the person concerned but also for his family and his descendants. The amount of debt was 1 kati and 8 suwarnas of gold (865 g. or about $12,000 at today's prices), an unusually large amount.
    The pardon was issued by the chief of Tundun, who was of higher rank than the other chiefs who witnessed the document and whose names and respective areas of jurisdiction are listed. The last sentence on the copperplate is incomplete, indicating that there was at least one more page to the document. Unfortunately, none has been found so far.

    ang interesting niya kaya basahin!

    Highlights of the articles:
    - Ophir, which was mentioned in the Bible multiple times, was the former name of the Philippine Islands
    - Ophir's major trading product was Gold. In fact, one of the Three Kings who offered Gold to Baby Jesus may have been one of our ancestors
    - The people of Ophir spoke the same or remnants of the language of Adam
    - Pre-hispanic Philippines was heavily engaged in major trades in Asia
    - The Laguna Copperplate Inscription is a proof to the fact the the pre-Hispanic Philippines was not just, no doubt, a wealthy country, but also a civilized society with a leader, constituents and inferrably, a set of laws which is conntrary to what Spaniards said that the locals or Indios were uncivilized.

    Oh di ba, ang taray!

    parang dami namang "possible" locations. anyway, that is why we, as a nation, should invest in knowing our past. yung mga alam natin ngayon ay dahil pa sa mga pag-aaral commissioned by the Americans.

    ^ I thought this was last Sunday. Pinanood ko talaga yun pala wala. Galing ko kasi magbasa hehe.

    Btw, I didn't know about all this Ophir discussion until now. Thanks for sharing this!

    according to some of my personal research from the web (link here), how the country was identified as Ophir was traced back during the time of the Crusades in Palestine that began in the year 1095 . During those times pilgrims were continually attacked by moslem bandits until European knights and soldiers banded together and marched towards Palestine, where they overran and took back Jerusalem from the Moslems. the knights were intent at gathering relics from captured Jerusalem and among those that they discovered were the ancient treasure map of Solomon that traced the land of Ophir where gold mines for Solomon's treasures were said to be located.

    Many decades later the knights were beaten back by the moslems and Jerusalem was retaken, and support for their Order gradually faded until the Knights Templars, after having managed huge wealth, were attacked by the envious king Philip IV of France and the pope that he helped put into the Vatican throne, when in 1307 many of the once powerful Knights, including their leader De Molay, were arrested, accused of heresy, and were executed and burned at the stake, their wealth ultimately confiscated.

    However, some surviving knights escaped and secretly carried with them vast treasures, as well as the map of Solomon's gold mines where they eventually traced its location. Ultimately it led them to our archipelago islands, which was then known as "Isle of Gold" and part of the ancient continent of Lemuria where they befriended the Lemurian priests otherwise known as the leaders of the indigenous peoples, who also facilitated the hiding of their vast treasures with the aid of their deities locally known as Diwatas, entities of higher dimensional level said to be our ancient Lemurian ancestors, to closely guard these treasures, which were a fraction of many more hidden by our ancestors dating back from great ancient kingdoms of Asia.

    Some of the Knights remained and intermarried with the daughters of the priests, and this actually answered my personal question as to why there are indigenous peoples here in Mindanao who actually looked mestizos, which could provide clues that the European knights arrived in our shores more than 2 centuries before the Spaniards under Magellan first saw our islands in 1521, while the Spaniards had established their presence in Mindanao mostly in the later 19th century! Another proof that our ancient islands were famous for its gold were the outstanding, awesome 10th-13th century gold artifacts discovered in Butuan-Surigao area and presently exhibited in the Ayala museum. This area, as with other places in Mindanao, also had mestizo-looking indigenous peoples.

    It is also intriguing why those that controlled this country manipulated the sense of history of its inhabitants such that their sense of pre-colonial history were hidden or suppressed from the majority, most of us didn't even know our land was once famed in the ancient world as "Isle of Gold," and the otherwise noble terms of our ancestors, such as the Free peoples and warriors known as Maharlikans were even mocked upon and its real meaning suppressed, our ancestor's ancient beliefs such as our myths and legends, including about the Diwatas, were ignored or even rejected by mainstream history lessons and western biased educational systems.

    Otherwise, being aware of our great ancient past we could have been more noble as a people rather than our country being known as sick man of asia, being named after its colonial ruler, having inferior colonial mentality, or a society devolving into bakya crowd, jejemon culture, envious utak talangkas, mediocre minded or voting like noynoymon.
