28:68 Into Egypt - Which was literally fulfilled under Titus, when multitudes of them were carried thither in ships, and sold for slaves. And this expression seems to mind them of that time when they went over the sea without ships, God miraculously drying up the sea before them, which now they would have occasion sadly to remember. By the way - Or, to the way. And the way seems not to be meant here of the usual road - way from Canaan to Egypt, which was wholly by land, but to be put for the end of the way or journey, even the land of Egypt, for to this, and not to the road - way between Canaan and Egypt, agree the words here following, whereof I speak unto thee, thou shalt see it, (that is, Egypt) no more again. No man shall buy you - Either because the number of your captives shall be so great, that the market shall be glutted with you; or because you shall be so loathsome and contemptible that men shall not be willing to have you for slaves. And this was the condition of the Jews after the destruction of Jerusalem, as Josephus the Jew hath left upon record. Let us all learn hence, to stand in awe and not to sin. I have heard of a wicked man (says Mr. Henry) who on reading these threatenings, was so enraged, that he tore the leaf out of his bible. But to what purpose is it, to deface a copy, while the original remains unchangeable? By which it is determined, that the wages of sin is death: yea, a death more dreadful than all that is here spoken!

History said the Isrealite who excape the seige fled to Africa.(the wilderness)Egypt was a place of refuge for the isrealite when their enemy came against them. In the Bible Egypt is refered to as a "house of bondage" in ancient time until this day people walk from isreal to eygypt they never needed to get on ships to go to eygpt. even Joseph was told by the angel to take the child and his mother and flee to eygpt.the eygpt of deut: 28 vs 68 is refering to a house of bondage. SHIPS WILL TAKE THE ISREALITE BACK INTO SLAVERY OR BONDAGE. The isrealites who escape to Africa after the seige of jerusalem did not just stayed in eygpt the moved all over the continent from north africa to west africa setting the stage for the slave ships to arrive. one thousand two hundred plus years later after the fall of jerusalem the slave ships came fulfilling deut:28 vs 68. another thing to look at is the signs that will be upon the isrealite deut:28 vs 46 these sign will follow them forever thats the sign you look for. The people who came on the slave ships are the true house of Isreal.

I know that it is addressing the slaves that were brought to tne New World in slave ships, with iron collars around their necks, as this was the return to slavery prophesied in Deuteronomy 28:68, for the curse of disobedience was upon the True Israelites. The Khazars were never in Egypt, and had no knowledge of Kemet, when Moses wrote Deuteronomy. If fact, the Khazars, who are are a Turkic Mongol mongrels, did not even exist in the time of Moses. Yet, the world is ignorant of the hoax of the Khazars, as the Seed of Abraham.
