  • Jerry w goss on Genesis 10:25
    In Genesis 10:25, what is the meaning of the phrase: "for in his days was the earth divided?"
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 10:25
    If Gen 10:25 relates to verse 32, then it could also mean that at that time after Noah, his sons & families spread to other parts of the Earth & hence the Earth was divided into various nations.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Genesis 10:25
    Jerry, some believe the continents were divided in the days of Peleg. Look into "continental drift" for a scientific explanation of what might have been. Some claim there was once a super continent called Pangea. The the continents broke apart and are moving away from each other. That is what some believe involving tectonic plates movement.

    I am not sure I believe all that, as it is just a theory since no one was there who is alive today.
  • Clayton on Genesis 10:25
    In this passage, it said his days on earth were divided? What do they mean? Divided how and between what or where?
