1. And now king Binyamin thought it was expedient, after having finished speaking to the people, that he should take the names of all those who had entered into a covenant with Elohim to keep his mitzvot. And it came to pass that there was not one soul, except it were little children, but that had entered into the covenant and had taken upon them the name of Mashiach. And again, it came to pass that when king Binyamin had made an end of all these things, and had consecrated his son Moshiyah to be a ruler and a king over his people, and had given him all the charges concerning the kingdom, and also had appointed kohanim to teach the people, that thereby they might hear and know the mitzvot of Elohim, and to stir them up in remembrance of the oath which they had made, he dismissed the multitude and they returned, everyone according to their families, to their own houses.
  2. And Moshiyah began to reign in his father’s place, and he began to reign in the thirtieth year of his age, making in the whole about four hundred and seventy-six years59 from the time that Lechi left Yerushalayim. And king Binyamin lived three years, and he died.60 And it came to pass that king Moshiyah did walk in the ways of yhwh, and did observe his judgments and his statutes, and did keep his mitzvot in all things whatsoever he commanded him.
  3. And king Moshiyah did cause his people that they should till the earth, and he also himself did till the earth, that thereby he might not become burdensome to his people, that he might do according to that which his father had done in all things. And there was no contention among all his people for the space of three years.
