Discussion for 1 Chronicles 1

    To anyone on here, to get a good understanding of these 'tough' chapters, type in 'Matthew Henry's complete Bible commentary' on a search engine such as Ask.com, Scroll to the title I gave you; there is also always a 'concise' commentary, which is shorter for looking for just one or 2 verses. I read just the first 2 -3 pp of 1 chr. 2 - it was so good.
  • To M. Verrell
    When you want to know about a book, go to the 'commentary' above 'comments'. It's always by Matthew Henry and he is GOOD. It's plain to see the Lord led him to do this. Matthew H. was an English preacher in the 1700's. England was one of the countries where the Reformation took hold and produced lot of men led of God. You can see God was with them in their writings.
  • In HIS name
    Chronicles is a tough book, but it also is a great time line - when you really learn to study it.
    It's a calendar if you will...

    to Delroy - I'm reading chronicles and I have to admit it can be hard to get through. Read through the books again, the message is "hidden" in the text. The lessons are not only in what is said, but how it is said. We will see the "lessons" reflected in the text when we learn to see ourselves through the text. The same for all the bible I reckon - hope that helps?
  • Delroy
    If one does not study Chronicles is he or she neglecting to study the Bible? I know all the Bible is God's word and He has a reason why they are there so help me out here
  • Leonard
    I know that I'm a year later here but to answer Carl,but here goes... Peleg was born in the time of genesis between Noah and Abraham... the division spoken of is when God confounded the people's language and scattered them abroad so that they would leave off from building the tower of babel
