Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.8 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Hosea, iv:1,2,3.)--'Hear ye the word of the Lord, ye children of Israel: for the Lord hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood. Therfore shall the land mourn, and everyone that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven.' Khan Jubb-Yusuf is a few miles north of Capernaum. The Khan derives its name from a tradition current among old Arab geographers that the pit into which Joseph was thrown was situated here. It is a desolate region, and one riding from Capernaum to this place will be impressed with the truth of this third verse: 'The land shall mourn and everyone that dwelleth therein shall languish.'"
