    Dear "Sonia Anderson", i know like you + a very blessing of and could serve some of the Lord's beloved here on the web with words of wisdom in due time, prayer and conversation. I thank you all on the web every day, my heart is full of gratitude for the website.

    And for u be comforted that you need no money and learn the Word of God, the Holy Spirit does the job best of all! :) Many times a person may not know what is best for themselves. But God knows.

    It never goes wrong if we hear His voice before our own. Otherwise, it is important that you get the lessons you want, you will find everything in here if you look, Good luck and put KJV as a shortcut on your screen, it is wise.

    Stay blessed in Jesus Name, love u in Christ. Advice: Emphasize and read God's Word every day, and He will open up the scripture to you. 1 Corintihans 12:1-31

    Dear Sonia , please , just buy yourself a KJV Bible and read and enjoy it . If you read it with an open heart and mind , every day , you won't need to pay money for commentaries or lessons . Everything you need to know is in the Bible , as long as you are commited to reading it and do so you will learn everything for yourself . Have patience , it's not a race it's a lifelong relationship that will grow and get stronger as long as you keep reading the Bible . May God bless your efforts .

    Deuteronomy 22:5: "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God."

    In those early days, the garments of men & women were very similar, & not distinct as they are now. So in the aspects of style, cut & embroidery work, these would give them some distinction between the genders & general acceptability. Today, fashions are also clearly defined & acceptable even if it means that pants/jeans may be worn by women: so I don't see that this is what the verse refers to here.

    It seems more likely that the Israelites are being forewarned as they come into heathen lands that this type of behaviour, unknown to the Israelites, were common among the heathen, particularly in their temple worship to their gods & goddesses. And later on, when transvestism became more common place among the heathen, even among the Romans (known for their debauchery), this warning became more applicable that God's people should never resemble the heathen in such practises & maintain a proper, relevant dress code. So I understand this warning in Deuteronomy does not apply to what is normal, acceptable, decent styles of clothing, but to those who pursue the wearing of such apparel of the opposite sex because of their depraved minds & sinful hearts.

    Donna:Six hundred and sixty six is the number of people that came out total:42,360 that's a big congregation! Plus 7337 Servants./ Adonikam:in Hebrew: Lord of rising, It has nothing to do the antichrist. 13 is just a number. Paul was number 13 of the Apostles. 666 is a number of incompleteness looked at as Darkness,Evil,very sinful. Nehemiah 7:18 667 People that came out.

    THE WORD OF GOD!! 42,360; NOT 333

    When God's fury comes down it touches the lost as well as the saved. It does not mean God loves us any less or devalues us. We must remain faithful throughout unto the end. We cannot shortchange God or His motives. he is God. He is sovereign and we must trust Him til the end.

    Tyrone? and others? about the math? did you subtract the number of the family of the priests that could not prove themselves? who married outside?
  • Robert on Ezra 2 - 8 years ago
    V13 Adonikam means "The lord of the rebellion" 2Sam 18:18. It is a direct reference to the Anti-Christ. 13 in Biblical numerology is rebellion,depravity,the beast.
  • Donna on Ezra 2 - 8 years ago
    in chapter 2 verse 13, is there any significance to the number of children 666?

  • Gugwe wenharo on Ezra 2 - 9 years ago
    whether the math adds up correctly or not what i know now is let God be true and calculations and all men be liers
  • Tyrone on Ezra 2 - 11 years ago
    @Ali Omar,
    While the number or total comes just under 30K, between verses 43 and 57, is it possible the delta is in these verses. Second, because the math does not add up, rest assured the total is 42333 as the word of God says.
  • Ja'ala on Ezra 2 - 11 years ago
    How do you pronounce Jā�-ă-lăh from the Bible and is it Jewish? Male or female? Would like to know please.
  • Ali omar on Ezra 2 - 13 years ago
    hello, i added up the math and it says that "the whole congregation was forty and two thousand three hundred and threescore" but when i add it up it comes under 30k??? Ezra chap 2 V66 as well as Nehemiah chap 7 V66 same problem there, the math is incorrect
  • Robby Santiago on Ezra 2 - 13 years ago
    Ezra 2:59 but they could not shew their father's house, and their seed, whether they [were] of Israel:
    is the key verse to help make this long list make sense at least at the end of the book, when the great divorce happens, it shows them divorcing their foreign wives and the children they had with them as well. very sad but this is what God required of them
