7:2 And he said, Brethren and fathers, hearken: The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Haran,

7:13 And at the second time Joseph was made known to his brethren; and Joseph`s race became manifest unto Pharaoh.
7:14 And Joseph sent, and called to him Jacob his father, and all his kindred, threescore and fifteen souls.
7:15 And Jacob went down into Egypt; and he died, himself and our fathers;

7:30 And when forty years were fulfilled, an angel appeared to him in the wilderness of Mount Sinai, in a flame of fire in a bush.

7:38 This is he that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel that spake to him in the Mount Sinai, and with our fathers: who received living oracles to give unto us:
7:39 to whom our fathers would not be obedient, but thrust him from them, and turned back in their hearts unto Egypt,

7:53 ye who received the law as it was ordained by angels, and kept it not.
