Please read Genesis 36:1-19, 1 Chronicles 1:35-37, Genesis 36:20-30, 1 Chronicles 1:38-42, Genesis 36:31-43, 1 Chronicles 1:43-54, 1 Chronicles 2:1-2 (whew!). When you’re ready, come on back – maybe make a comment of your own here! This is what I’m thinking this morning:
Even though the descendants and begats can seem tedious, it’s interesting and important when we see them come back and are able to remember. For example, we’ll see the Amalekties again (1 Chronicles 1:36). Make a note – they descended from Esau. We also see the 12 tribes (Jacob’s sons, 1 Chronicles 2:1-2), and we’ll have them with us for a long time. God is faithful!
