    Verse 28~Prosperity for the Israelites depended on Jehovah God's blessing. He was their provider.

    Dear Joyce; I was just reading in Ezekiel 13 and found clearly written answers to our questions about missing names or tribes. "And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel.." Please read Ezekiel 13!

    Simeon is mentioned 50 times through out the King James Bible, in Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, Ezekiel, Luke, Acts, and Revelation.
    May God bless you.

    Have you noticed also in Revelation 7, Dan is not mentioned? Is it an indication of some that are not going to make it?

    Read Genesis 34:25-31 it tells a bit more of Simeon and how he joined forces with is younger brother Levi in the massacre of Shecemites and the reason why it was done.

    Why isn't anything said about Simeon. All the other sons of Jacob are mentioned except him. Can anybody explain why?

    God is faithful to his words He used Moses as a voice to the People that you and me might Hear God's words so that you and me must have life in abundance. Jesus is a blessing and our life by his words and his blood we are pardoned. Psalms 23 Jehova Jireh the Lord is the Provider of All We shall ask more rain when it's time for a rain which mean a BLESSING ONLY BELIEVE JESUS AND WORSHIP HIM AMEN
  • Rob Earle for verse 25
    The Hebrew word translated as strength is probably idiomatic for spiritual maturity. Only one Biblical character seemed stronger in his old age and that was Caleb who took on the giants in Judea. Where are the others? Whereas the idea of growing spiritually mature is progressive as we continue to study God 's Word as we gracefully age.
  • Gabriel Obioma Ejiogu for verse 7
    Moses prayed that God would hear the voice of Judah during his times of distress, because as ' 'a lion, killing his victim and returning to his den... ' ' Judah would stand to defend the Kingdom of God. This was pictured in 2 Chronicles 13, ' 'And when Judah looked back, behold, the battle was before and behind: and they cried unto the LORD, and the priests sounded with the trumpets. Then the men of Judah gave a shout: and as the men of Judah shouted, it came to pass that God smote Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah. ' ' vv. 15-16. Moses requested that God would bring unite Judah unto his people. God originally, never planned that there would be any sort of schism among the tribes of Israel. He wanted them to be one strong, united nation not two nations. Moses, through the eyes of the Spirit, saw the separation of Judah from the rest of the tribes of Israel, and Moses prayed that God would unite them. Similarly, Jacob, their father, on his deathbed prophesied that when Shiloh Jesus, the Lion of the tribe of Judah comes, there shall be a gathering of His people Genesis 49:10 . This means, that Christ shall unite Israel both the physical and spiritual Israel at His second coming. Another blessing for Judah is that his hands would be sufficient for him and God would be his only aid. Yes, like a lion, Judah kills his victim and returns to his den. God strengthens them enough to defend their cause. They do not seek for an external aid to help them fight their battle. God is their only, and sufficient help.

    Comments given above all are inspiring and experience their situation in some cases. In the same sense of view, I took verse 29 as a promise for our church that we want to inherit a land for worship place.

    How come the tribe of Dan is not present in Revelation.
  • Carlos for verse 19
    The hebrew commentary says the hidden treasure of the sand is white gl*** and perhaps gl*** ****ing. Before there was Venice gl***, there was the Judean gl***, which they spread to the world during their exile. Roman sources reference gl*** discovery to a location in Israel. Hebrew sources mention disappearance of white gl*** from markets after destruction of the 2nd temple. Jews break a gl*** on weddings to commemorate the destruction of the temple.

    Jacob told Simeon and Levi that instruments of cruilty would be in their hand, and thus Moses is aware of this and does not pronouce a blessing on Simeon. Yet Israel will be blessed, and study Genesis 49 and you will see this. Jehova God shall have his everlasting arms underneath them to carry them. We must trust the LORD with all of our heart, and lean not to our understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy path. May the Lord bless you.

    WHAT blessings did Moses pronounce on Simeon?
  • Carol Taylor for verse 25
    I think that this verse is explained by Deuteronomy 29:5 and Nehemiah 9:21. Shoes were for their daily walk. They would have all that they needed to succeed and prosper in life, and they would have enough strength to handle all that they would encounter in the days of their life.
  • Funeka for verse 23
    this goes to prove to us the asssurance of having God our Lord Jesus Christ in our lives, as he will favour us in everything that concerns our lives("Possess the west and the south"). Thank you: Funeka, South Africa
