    So here is a firm covenant, before Jehovah, that the border of Syria and Israel is on the mount Gilead? The Golan Heights are much further north? Mmm.

    Stuff the noun in this early modern context should be associated with the verb and interpreted as their furnishing. Stuffing in the sense of a mattress or pillow、 slang is a misnomer in language it is a class based assessment not a linguistic reality. One of my reasons for reading KJB is for etymology and early modern context since becoming an English teacher overseas and encountering US English

    Leigh (cont.); "..Did I miss something?" Abraham came into the land of Canaan by God's direction, to pass his days as a stranger and a pilgrim in a country that was to be given to him in the future; and as a watcher and a holy one to be a witness of the ungodly nation which God was about to take away. Jacob knew the high and holy calling of God on his family though his wife lagged a little behind.
  • A disciple
    Leigh; The relatives of Jacob were nothing like the Canaanites, even if they were infected with idols: they were not the same kind that Moses later wrote about, who did every abomination that the LORD hates and therefore had God judged to have them completely and utterly exterminated from the earth. There are nations and people today that simply don't know any better, and the Lord will have mercy.
