one of those who opposed Moses in Egypt (2 Tim. 3:8). (See JANNES.)
Lastly, Jannes might come from a Hebrew root which means to seduce, and jambres from one which means to rebel.
Like as Jannes and jambres withstood Moses, so do these also withstand the truth.
Our hopes now entirely rest on finding jambres again, but it may be, of course, a good three or four thousand years before that.
When all was taut, jambres approached a slanting slope, smooth and transparent, perhaps of glacial origin.
From that hour, even until now, has no man nor woman known where to find him, even jambres the magician.
Leonora and I descended with agility to some monstrous basin in the abyss—the Pit, jambres called it.
We applied it to the parched lips of the mummy, and jambres was himself again.
Here jambres met us, and bade us light the railway reading-lamps which, as I forgot to mention, we had brought with us.
The mode in which "Jannes and jambres withstood Moses" was simply by imitating, as far as they were able, whatever he did.
No sooner had jambres sat down than Leonora and I found ourselves—how can we expect it to be believed?
