Other, unnamed Egyptian kings

Other, unnamed Egyptian kings

The pharaoh from the time of Abram (Gen 12:15-20). 7 The pharaoh of the Joseph story (Gen 39-50). 8 The “pharaoh of the oppression” (Exod 1-2), whom many biblical scholars equate with Sety I (1291–1279 BCE) or Rameses II (1279–1212 BCE). 9 The “pharaoh of the exodus” (Exod 5-12), often identified by biblical scholars as Rameses II (1279–1212 BCE) or, somewhat less likely, his son and successor, Merenptah (1212–1202 BCE). 10 The pharaoh(s) who granted asylum to Hadad of Edom and gave Hadad his wife’s sister in marriage (1Kgs 11:14-22). This may be the twenty-first-dynasty pharaoh Amenemope (993–984 BCE), though the pharaoh responsible for the second action could be Siamun (978–959 BCE). 11 The pharaoh who took Gezer and presented the city as a dowry to his daughter when she married Solomon (1Kgs 9:16). This diplomatic marriage is also mentioned in (1Kgs 3:1; 1Kgs 7:8; 1Kgs 9:24; and 1Kgs 11:1). This pharaoh is probably the twenty-first-dynasty Siamun (978–959 BCE) rather than his successor, Psusennes II (959–945 BCE).
