Discussion for 1 Chronicles 1

  • Thomas A Blair
    Seeking the story in the Old Testament of the Authorized King James Version of 1611 when the Joshua or some of his "administration" made a contract with Canaanitish people in direct conflict of God's command and clear instruction to not enter into treaties with the peoples of Canaan. They were somewhere in there identified as Nethinim and became servants of the Children of Israel.

    I must admit that reading chapters with names like these gives me such a headache, then I realized that I was being self-centered and selfish. Our God has given us the means to understand and prove to our own future generations where the authority comes from.

    When people write in the word, they should add pronunciations to some words cuase I was reading it and I could of sworn I was about to pass out, the names were sooo hard that I felt like I was going on a whimb. that's all I want to say. bye.

    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...
