Wesley's Notes for Genesis 4:22


4:22 From Tubal - Cain, probably the Heathen Vulcan came. Why Naamah is particularly named, we know not: probably they did, who lived when Moses wrote.


Discussion for Genesis 4

  • Every knee
    IN the earth, changed to ON the earth. Huge significance! The Lords Prayer also changed from IN, to ON.................IN is something they'd rather you didn't know with the 66 books we're left with.
  • A disciple
    Jevon; Murder is: the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another. In the Law of the LORD, the one who premeditates to kill someone is worthy of death; and the innocent blood is not taken away from the land except by the blood of him that shed it. Accidental killing of a man is not murder; and the one who does it is granted asylum in a City of Refuge that he may escape the avenger.

    Murderer is mentioned 20 times in the KJV Bible. Numbers 35:16- 35:17- 35:18- 35:19-35:21- 35:30- 35:31 2 Kings 6:32- Job 24:14- Hosea 9:13- John 8:44- Acts 3:14- Acts 28:4 - 1 Peter 4:15- and 1 John 3:15 says, Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
  • Jevon
    What is a murderer? IS it the one that says Am I my brother's keeper or what is it at all?

    Dear Brother Jim; God has been able in every age to provide Himself good and faithful witnesses. No matter how much we may want to give the children of the devil the benefit of the doubt, and say, Maybe it was for this reason, or, maybe its because of that... and still find a way to blame ourselves; God Himself, at a certain point lets men have their own minds, and the kind of spirits they want.
