ASRUTH. (Azariah)(Ezra-S2)(Easru-S2). [see CHART A3], [see CHART A9], [see CHART A10], [see CHART A30], [see CHART A40].

Ancient genealogies give a conflicting ancestry for Azariah. The descent is the same, so it is aparent they are speaking of the same person and line, but the ancestry differs.
In one, he is son of Ethan.
In the other, he is son of Gaodhal.

In the first version, he is named as Azariah or Easru, the son of Ethan. His is possibly noted in Chronicles thus:
And the sons of Ethan; Azariah. 1 Chronicles 2:8

The name Azariah is often shortened in Hebrew to Ezra. Its Old Irish form would be Easru. So here we have an Azariah (or Ezra), of the same generation as Moses, living at the time of the Exodus, whose descendants did not settle in Palestine, and who was of the Crimson Branch. At the same time Irish history reveals an Easru - Old Irish for Azariah or Ezra - living in Moses' day, crossing the Red Sea, but not settling in Palestine, whose descendants in after generations used the symbol of the Crimson Branch. (S1).

In the second version (S2), Azariah is named Asruth, the son of Gaodhal.

From Azariah, or Asruth, the descent is shown as the same, from Sruth (or Sru), so we know they are talking about the same lineage, it is just the ancestry that is questionable.


  1. Sruth. (Sru-S1). Sruth was a son of Asruth. Asruth frequently supported the Israelites against the Egyptians, so shortly after Asruth’s death, the Egyptians attacked Sruth and his followers. After many battles, Sruth and his few remaining followers were forced to leave Egypt. After a long sea journey, they arrived at the Island of Crete, where Sruth died. [Other sources say that the Egyptians attacked Sruth after the pharaoh was drowned in the Red Sea in pursuit of the Israelites, but Sruth probably lived long before the Exodus.]
