An epistle in which the Egyptian scribe Sinuhe penned the following description about Yaa, the name for Israel (ca 2000 BC). It was a goodly land called Yaa. Figs were in it and grapes, and is wine was more abundant than its water. Plentiful was its honey, many were its olives; all manner of fruits were upon it trees. Source: Good and Nurock, 1968, p. 2.
