"I desire the Spirit of God to know and understand myself,
that I might be able to overcome whatever of tradition or
nature that would not tend to my exaltation in the eternal
worlds. I desire a fruitful, active mind, that I may be able to comprehend the designs of God, when revealed through His servants without doubting."

    • Niul, son of Phoeniusa Farsaidh; m. Scota, daughter of Pharaoh Cincris, King of Egypt. Niul was a very educated man. He was well versed in the languages and sciences. He taught in the school founded by his father for 20 years with his father and continued to teach after his father had returned to his kingdom. In Aeothena, he continued teaching the languages and other sciences. The fame of his learning reach the Pharaoh Cincris, King of Egypt, who invited him to Egypt. Pharaoh gave to him the land of Campus Cyrunt, near the Red Sea. The descendants of Niul continued in the land given to him for three following generations. Before the time of Moses/Goadhal, it does not appear that the Egyptians had any knowledge of "alphabetical" writing. It would appear that their knowledge of such came to them through Niul. The actual credit for educating the Phoenicians and Egyptians, it was they who instructed, civilized and polished the Grecians. The Phoenicians were responsible for instructing them in navigation, writing, and commerce. The Egyptians instructed them in the knowledge of their law and polity, also providing them with a taste for the arts and sciences, also initiating them into their mysteries. It was Niul, who employed Gaodhall (Gael) to compose and refine the language called Bearla Tobbai, later commonly called Gaodhilg. Niul named his eldest son after the newly created "language" Gaodhilg. Gaodhilg is now known as Gaelic. According to ancient Irish historians, the Nile River was named after Niul. Niul's wife Scota was said to be the daughter of Pharaoh who rescued Moses from drowning in the Nile. (Exodus 2:5) Niul and Scota are said to have taken a great interest in his welfare and education. The Ancient Gaelic Alphabet consisted of 16 letters. The letters were named after shrubs and trees. They were arranged in this order: B L F S N D T C M G R, and A O U E I. The modern Gaelic Alphabet consist of 18 letters arranged in this order: A B C D E F G H I L M N O P R S T U. The name of the letters are: A Ailm fig or palm tree B Beith birch tre C Coll hazel tree D Dair oak tree E Eadha aspen tree F Fearn alder tree G Gort ivy H Uath white thorn L Luis wild ash M Muin vine tree N Nuin ash tree O Oir broom tree P Peith dwarf elder R Ruis bore tree S suil willow tree T Teine furze or whin bush U Ur heath shru ----------------------- Irishowen Its History, Traditions and Antiquites by Maghtochair, published by Mrs. Peggy Simpson 20 Jul, 1867, page 9. He was sent by his father to the African coast at the request of the Egyptians. He was to found a language school for their mariners. he became the ancestor of the Gaels who eventually found their way to Ireland. Source Tottens "old Irish Genealogies and 1 Chr 2:6 "Nial journeyed into Egypt, where he was united in marriage to Scota, daughter of Pharaho Cincris, the King of the country. He had a son Gaodhal, of whom it is related that (at or about the time of Moses was preparing to conduct the Children of Israel out of Egypt) he was bitten by a serpent and cured by a touch of the wand in the hands of that great prophet, who then foretold to him that his descendants should inhabit an island where there were no serpents, nor any other noxious reptiles. This is actually true of Crete and Ireland, of which his descendants were, and are now inhabitants of the latter. After Moses cured the wound, the scar always remained green, from which circumstance Gaodhal received the surname of Glas, which means green, and combining the names Gadelas, which gave his descendants the distinctive name of Gadelians. This circumstance is kept in rememberence by the armonial bearings of many families of Ireland. In the third generation from Gaodhal, his posterity became very numerous and excited the jealousy of the Egyptians, who drove them out of their country, under the leadership of Sur, son of Easur, son of Gaodhal, and in the time of Pharaoh en Tine. Niel is said to have led his people to Egypt where they were hired as mercenries of the Pharaoh. The Gadelians, under Sur, journeyed to the Island of Crete, where they landed and established themselves, and Sur died. Heber Scot, his son, succeeded him as leader and governor." Ref: Milesian Families of Ireland edited by Heraldic Artists limited, 1968 page 11. "It was this Niul that employed Gaodhal [Gael], son of Ethor, a learned and skillful man, to compose or rather refine and adorn the language, called Bearia Tobbai, which was common to all Nuil's posterity, and afterwards called Gaodhlig (or Gaelic), from the said Gaodhal who composed or refined it; and for his sake also Niul called his own eldest son "Gaodhal."
