These among the Egyptians "were clever at speaking the truth about future events. And one of them reported to the king that a certain [child] would be born at that time to the Israelites, one who would bring low the dominance of the Egyptians but increase the Israelites, and being raised in virtue he would surpass all and obtain eternal glory;" [he was] speaking about Moses.[1]
And elsewhere: "Suenes,[2] the king of the Egyptians, [was] altogether just. Other good things from a god followed this man's manner of life, and in particular the Egyptian stories sing that a sacred scribe lived in his time, dear to the gods and profitable in every way, by the name of Iachim. They say that he was experienced in amulets and spells.[3]
