In yesterday’s reading, we heard of important ancestors of the tribes of Judah and Simeon. In Ezra’s time, I can imagine that it was important to figure out who was who and what their relationship was, as this would determine the redistribution of land to the exiles who were returning.
I wish I was more like this proverb:
Pro. 15:23 NLT Everyone enjoys a fitting reply;
it is wonderful to say the right thing at the right time!
There is no topic change at the first of this chapter. Paul is still giving instructions about our new life in union with Christ. Chapter 4 ended with this:
Eph. 4:30 GNT And do not make God's Holy Spirit sad; for the Spirit is God's mark of ownership on you, a guarantee that the Day will come when God will set you free.
31 Get rid of all bitterness, passion, and anger. No more shouting or insults, no more hateful feelings of any sort.
32 Instead, be kind and tender-hearted to one another, and forgive one another, as God has forgiven you through Christ.
