  • Steven Sensing for verse 12
    Are there any curses in the bible that last longer than the third and fourth generations? I am particularly interested in a curse against someone who has transgressed against people who have less than them. Thank you for any help you can give me.
  • Mishael On Blessing and Curses for verse 12
    You need to get into Matthew 5. You life will be much more pleasant. Read this link.

    Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

    But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

    That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.


    If someone curses you; the way you turn that curse into dust is to bless the one who cursed you. It turns the curse away from you. Christians don't get mad and get even. It just gets you into trouble.

    If you forgive....it releases God to get involved in the other persons life. That's how it works.

    I find it interesting that 11 of these 12 names are written in Revelation 7:5-8 where God seals their foreheads.

    Manasses instead of Dan.
  • James

    This is not about immigration people. This is about the 'fear (reverence) of God' and faithfulness to HIM. He blesses those who love HIM, believe in HIM, trust in HIM and obey HIM.
    It is not a "slavery" obedience, it is obedience in love to HIM. God was bringing about a 'people' of whom God was using to bring about salvation, grace and mercy!
  • John
    The chapter reads like a modern news article in places.Fear of alien cultures overrunning the natives.Immigration leads to hard working ways and a strength of character that natives take for granted, however in the ancient theme of hospitality expulsion is dangerous to rites. However, is this an err by the Israelites for not leaving for their Canaan lands? They would have had to struggle to retake
  • Adam
    If I leave my country for another randomly chosen by me then I should expect to have priority and rights over the existing citizens of that country? And if they resist me then they're immigrant-phobic and need to change, not me? I wonder if this is belief is a falsehood. The Bible says to respect others Luke 6:31 and not give favoritism, so I think this idea seems untrue.
  • David
    Who in the world has ever left their home for a "randomly chosen" country? Migrants come to America to find a better life, often because of life-threatening or intolerable conditions at home. They choose America because we proclaim, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free... Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me." A promise we are now betraying.
  • Walter
    Immigration leads to hard working ways? That's your comment?
  • Maria Morales
    This chapter talks about how Israel were very fruitful and multiplied more than the Egypians. It reminds me of the scripture that says "If If God had not been on our side, ye sons of Jacob would be consumed.

    Verses 15-17~Shiphrah and Puah wouldn't just obey orders, they were bold because they feared Jehovah God more than any man.
  • Ray Jay
    Ahiests use Exodus 1:11 to discredit the Bible because it indicates that Ramesses is the Pharoah at this time, and if so, the Egyptian chronology doesn't match with archeology and discredits Jews being in Egypt. However, how do we know that this is Ramesses? Maybe this pharaoh simply named the city after Ramasees? The documentary PATTERNS OF EVIDENCE: The Exodus, brought this to my attention.
  • Stanjett
    Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses. Its very clean that this Raamses is a city. Maybe named after Raamses the past ruler.
  • BSP
    Verse 9~The new Pharaoh was suspicious of the Israelites without just cause. Sometimes people may not like us but we can't let that get to us, we just have to be concerned with being fully pleasing to Jehovah God.
  • Pastor Emmanuel Upe
    It is a book of how generations emerges. Inter mariges brings about increase of a people , tribe and also leads to church growth. The book of exudos paints a picture of government tenureship and how it could be oppressive and run with fear and evil intentions sometimes.
  • BSP
    Verse 6~This is a good verse to give the definition of a generation. Those who are part of a generation can be different ages, but they are all contemporaries. Knowing this can help us to understand the meaning of the word generation at Matthew 24:34.
  • Emily Griswold
    Exodus is such a striking chapter. It so embodies the tests which God grace us with during our lives to test our faith and strength of character. It serves as an allegory for how we will all have times of relative slavery in our lives, but God stands with us and we must trust in His plan. Love to you all.
  • David Wise
    Exodus is Amazing like the Lord our God a most high and mighty God
  • A disciple
    Hello Maggie; On saying that God puts us in situations; we should be careful! Jesus said that we will have tribulation and toil and sorrow in this life, but we should be of good courage because He has overcome the world. God tempts no one; but we are all tempted when we are drawn away by our own lusts and enticed. If we cave in to those temptations, it is sin! We are also in a world out of course!
  • Maggie K Parker
    I think this was a test of the younger generation of Israel, to test their faith and to only rely on God for their deliverance and freedom. Trust him at his word and obey him and give him all the praise and worship and honor belong to him, and know that he can do just what he said he would do, I am in a situation now, I called out to get help, lost my job my grandchildren just wait on him
  • Maggie Parker
    I think it is a real test of the faith: of the new generation of Israel , sometimes God puts us in uncomfortable positions to test is to see if we trust totally in him, his word says the fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe. God is are only help in any situation, have faith in God as Abraham did was willing to slay his son for God in we trust.
  • Nicholas
    The God of ISRAEL Is an awesome God,he built houses to midwifes,why?,they feared Him .Amen
