Yesterday we traced from Adam to Noah and the genealogy to Abraham. Then we heard of Abraham’s two other families, those descending from Keturah and the sons and rulers descended from Esau. So now we take up Jacob’s descendants, but in this book, he is frequently called by his other name, Israel. (GNT has used ‘Jacob’ instead in this chapter, as it is more understandable for modern readers.)
This chapter has one of my all-time favorite proverbs:
14:4 NLT Without oxen a stable stays clean,
but you need a strong ox for a large harvest.//
GNT Without any oxen to pull the plow your barn will be empty,
But with them it will be full of grain.]
Re-reading EPHESIANS 3:
There are two instances of ‘joined with Christ’ in this chapter. This brings the total to 13 so far in this letter.
GNT Translation note:
1Chr. 2:47 (A man named Jahdai [whose relationship was not specified] had six sons: Regem, Jotham, Geshan, Pelet, Ephah, and Shaaph.)
