-Eglon: a big fat king of the Moabites.

Comprised with Bible dictionaries: With the Amalekites and Ammonites Eglon crossed the Jordan river and took Jericho.(Judges 1:16).the city of palmtrees, left unwalled and therefore an easy prey to the foe, because of Joshua's curse in destroying it 60 years before. According to Josephus, Eglon built a palace in Jericho and from there for 18 years he ruled oppressively over Israel.

Ehud, a young Israelite of Jericho, gained favor of Eglon by presenting some gift to him. After dismissing the others who came with him, Ehud was cordially admitted by the king into his private summer parlor or cooling apartment. On Ehud's announcing "I have a message from God for you", the king rose reverentially to receive it and was instantly stabbed in the belly by Ehud's dagger in his left hand and Eglon's fat closed completely over it:.Judges 3:16-26.

-Elymas: a false prophet in the times of the early New Testament who was struck blind by the power of God as used by the apostles:.Acts 13:6-12. He was the sorcerer who called himself barEmmanuel, meaning son of Emmanuel. Another was a man named Simon. Seems like there are always those around who will try to dupe you.

-Esarhaddon: reigned B.C.E. 681-669..Son of Sennacherib and his successor as king of Assyria:.2Kings 19:37. Nothing further is recorded of him in Scripture, except that he settled certain colonists in Samaria:.Ezra 4:2.

Easton's Dictionary:."From the monuments it appears that he was the most powerful of all the Assyrian monarchs. He built many temples and palaces, the most magnificent of which was the south-west palace at Nimrud, which is said to have been in its general design almost the same as Solomon's palace, only much larger:.1Kings 7:1-12. In December B.C.E. 681 Sennacherib was murdered by two of his sons, who, after holding Nineveh for forty-two days, were compelled to fly to Erimenas of Ararat or Armenia. Their brother Esarhaddon, who had been engaged in a campaign against Armenia, led his army against them. They were utterly overthrown in a battle fought April B.C.E. 680 near Malatiyeh and in the following month Esarhaddon was crowned at Nineveh. He restored Babylon, conquered Egypt and received tribute from Manasseh of Judah. He died in October B.C.E. 669 while on the march to suppress an Egyptian revolt and was succeeded by his son Assurbanipal, whose younger brother was made viceroy of Babylonia."

Concise Dictionary: "From the records on the monuments he appears to have been one of the most powerful of the Assyrian kings. He says "I counted among the vassals of my realm twelve kings of Syria, beyond the mountains: Balon or Baal, king of Tyre; Manasseh, king of Judah", etc. About B.C.E. 671 he conquered Egypt, took its city of Memphis and captured two of the king's sons. He divided Egypt into twenty provinces, placing some of them under native princes and others under Assyrian governors with Assyrian troops. He reigned from B.C.E. 681 to 668."

Esarhaddon was more favorably disposed toward Babylonia and helped to rebuild it. His major military success consisted of crossing the frontier of Egypt and capturing Memphis, its capital. Esarhaddon was grandson of Sargon II.

Esarhaddon's health was failing and he was going nuts. He regarded eclipses of the moon as forewarning.impending personal negativities and to circumvent any fatal illness that may occur to him at these three times of his twelve year reign, he called others up to be temporary substitute kings, who died or were put to death when each eclipse was over. It was an 'all for me and screw you' type of reign. That is what happens when one listens to the dark side and is not in touch with the true God of the universe, he or she then is on the pathway of craziness.

Esarhaddon died in October B.C.E. 668 while on the march to suppress an Egyptian revolt and was succeeded by his son Assurbanipal.

-Esau/Edom: means 'red'. Esau loved red lentils so much that his name was changed because of them and because he also had red hair. Esau was his birth name. He was Isaac's oldest son and brother of Jacob.

Esau sold his birthright to Jacob for a bowl of lentils, because he was hungry, therefor his name became Edom:.Genesis 25:24-34. He was a man of appetite, who thought more of his immediate needs than his future.

The story of Esau and how he lost his birthright:.Genesis 27th chapter and the hate that ensued. And, the wonderful outcome of it all. Esau/Edom had a touching renewal after a long separation from his brother Jacob. 

Edomites existed long before the time of the nation of Israel:.Genesis 36:31.

From Esau/Edom the man, came the land of Edom, also kinow as Mount Seir, whose inhabitants were called Edomites:.Genesis 36:1,43. The Greeks called the land Idumea. The Horites lived there. Esau/Edom's progeny dwelt in this land filled with limestone caves. 

In the New Testament, written in Greek, Edom is known as Idumea, also spelt Idumaea. Edom is also mentioned in various ancient Assyrian and Egyptian records. 

The vacillating Esau/Edom made his mind up based on what only he wanted at the time, later changing it as it may have suited him.
