    3 ABRAHAM 40
    or Judith 32

    Abram marries Rea and Rua. The circumstances of their birth. Their psalm of love to Abram.

    1. Now in his twenty-fifth year our lord and husband took unto himself two more wives; and their names were Rea and Rua.

    5. Nevertheless they had not entered into the depth of our love and desired it with all their hearts.

    6. Therefore they sought the love of Abram.

    8. For this is the meaning of the name Rea, even one who is a companion, friend, and lover.

    10. She worked like a slave and never seemed to tire.
