GN-Day237 1 Chronicles 4; Proverbs 15:1-17; Ephesians 4

1CHRONICLES 4:
In yesterday’s reading we started with David’s sons, then for the descendants of King Solomon, only the kings were listed. So we jumped up to the period of the exile to Babylon.

PROVERBS 15a:
Here is a favorite verse from today’s group of proverbs:

Pro. 15 NLT 17 A bowl of vegetables with someone you love
is better than steak with someone you hate.

Re-reading EPHESIANS 4:
This chapter has only one instance of the words I translate as ‘joined as one with Christ’, but the chapter is all about that oneness. Let me share this translation note about the verse mentioning baptism:

5 NLT [We all worship//There is] one Lord, [we all fully believe in Christ/one faith], [we all have been baptized as his followers/one baptism],

In Indonesia ‘one baptism’ has been misunderstood by people on both sides of the main baptism debate. One side says, “One baptism means you should only be baptized once (so if you were baptized as a baby, don’t get baptized again anywhere else!)” The other side says, “One baptism means there is only one way to be baptized, and that is by immersion.” Both sides miss the point because this passage is about things that unify us, not divide us!

GNT Translation notes:
1Chr. 4:21 Shelah was one of Judah's sons. His descendants included [six groups. First,] Er, who founded the town of Lecah; [Second,] Laadah, founder of the town of Mareshah; [third,] the clan of linen weavers, who lived in the town of Beth Ashbea;
22 [Fourth,] Jokim and the people who lived in the town of Cozeba; [And fifth and sixth,//and] Joash and Saraph, who married Moabite women and then settled in Bethlehem. (These traditions are very old.)
====
Pro. 15:13 [NLT A glad heart makes a happy face; a broken heart crushes the spirit.
//GNT When people are happy, they smile, but when they are sad, they look depressed.]
====
Eph. 4:12 He did this to prepare all God's people for [his//the work of Christian] service, in order to build up the body of Christ.
13 And so we shall all come together to that oneness in our [believing//faith] and in our knowledge of the Son of God; we shall become mature people, reaching to the very height of Christ's full stature.
22 So[, like throwing away old clothes,] get rid of your old self, which made you live as you used to—the old self that was being destroyed by its deceitful desires.
24 and [like putting on new clothes,] you must put on the new self, which is created in God's likeness and reveals itself in the true life that is upright and holy.
