And over each did he place the sons of his loins. Thus Remlah was made king of Shinar, and upon the throne of Uruk sat Marduk, and Melech was made king of Calneh, and upon the throne of Babel did Belzebub rule.

Summary: (c. 8,800 BCE) Son of Yasher-Baal, Remlah was appointed king of the Sumerian city of Shinar after it was conquered by his father (B:11:35). When the rebellion of freedom-fighter, Elon Zanoah, started gaining momentum among the populace, Remlah sought to capture and kill Enoch’s son Methuselah, who was preaching throughout the land against the evils of Sumer’s priests and kings (B:15:1-16). Remlah’s soldiers succeeded in capturing Methuselah, but Elon Zanoah and five hundred of his men fell upon the king’s soldiers and rescued Methuselah. Elon commanded all of Remlah’s men to be killed, except the youngest, whom they sent to report to Remlah all that had happened (B:15:18-25).
Hoping to demolish the uprising, Remlah gathered his army and led them to battle against Elon Zanoah and his men. Yet, the army was ambushed while passing through the Narrows of Tiglath, and Remlah’s men were slaughtered, with twenty thousand perishing in the battle (B:15:28-31). Remlah was captured and brought before the walls of Shinar where Elon Zanoah proceeded to execute the king before the people. His body was divided into six portions which were sent to each of the kings of Sumer. The head of Remlah was delivered to Yasher-Baal, along with a written message from Elon Zanoah, threatening the king and challenging him to battle (B:15:32-40).
Adrammelech, Remlah’s brother, was appointed as king of Shinar by Yasher-Baal (B:15:49). Elon and his army later met their demise in a battle against Yasher-Baal on the plains of Luzon (B:16:32-40).
