Waymarks set up by the tribe of Dan in Europe as the 10 tribes were scattered, ultimately to the British Isles.

  "Speaking to Ephraim (verse 20), the Lord says in Jeremiah 31:21 : "Set thee up waymarks , make thee high heaps: set thine heart toward the highway, even the way which thou wentest." In Scripture we find the "waymarks," or highway signs, which they set up along the road they traveled. In Genesis 49:17, Jacob, foretelling what should befall each of the tribes, says: "Dan shall be a serpent by the way." Another translation of the original Hebrew is : "Dan shall be a serpent's trail." It is a significant fact that the tribe of Dan, on of the Ten Tribes, named every place they went after their Father, Dan." Den-mark, for instance means "Mark of Dan". 

"The Hebrew for " man" is iysh, or ish. In English , the ending " - ish" means "of or belonging to (a specified nation or person) ." In the original Hebrew language vowel s were never give n in the spelling . So, omitting the vowel "e" from berith, but retaining the " i " in its anglicized form to preserve the " y" sound, we have the anglicized Hebrew word for covenant, brith. T h e Hebrews, however, never pronounced their " h's . " Many a Jew, eve n today, i n pronouncing the name "Shem," will call it "Sem." Incidentally, this ancient Hebrew trait is also a modern British trait. So the Hebrew word for "covenant" would be pronounced, in its anglicized form , as brit. And t h e word for "covenant man ," or "covenant people," would there fore be simply " BRIT- ISH.""  Herbert W. Armstrong; "United States and Great Britain in Prophecy".
