* For the division of the Chronicles into two Books, see note on the Structure of the two Books of Samuel as a whole..

               The First Book of the

                CHRONICLES

Title, First. Again, see the notes on page 366 of Dr. Bullinger’s Companion Bible. But, suffice it to say, that, Chronicles: The Hebrew name, Dibrēi hayyāmīm=if we translate this instead of transliterating it, we would it mean: “words of the days.” The Greek name, Paraleipomena=things ommitted. Latin name, Chronicon from whence comes English title Chronicles. These books belong to quite another part of the Old Testament, and do not follow in sequence the Books of Kings. See Appendix 1. They are, according to the Hebrew Cannon the conclusion of the Old Testament; and the genealogies here lead up to that of Matthew 1:1, and the commencement of the New Testament. They end with the ending of the kingdom; and the question of Cyrus, “Who is there?” II Chronicles 36:23, is followed by the answer, “Where is He?” Matthew 2:2, and the proclamation of the kingdom by the rightful King and His forerunner. It begins with the first Adam eth ha-aw-dawm', in other words, “The man Adam;”found in Genesis 2:7or, the seedline through which Father will be born in the flesh as His Only Begotten Son: Jesus Christ, and leads on to the “last Adam,” Who was and indeed is: our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

For the relation of the Chronicles to the Kings, the two Books of the Kings should have been merged with the The Books of Samuel: both are recorded history from a “man’s perspective;” whereas, the Books of the Chronicles are recorded history from “Father’s perspective,” and if you really want to get down to the facts of things, it is all from Father’s perspective; as, it is “His Story.” For parallel passages in Samuel and Kings, see Appendix 56. The former Books: Samuel and Kings are “as man ruled the kingdoms and history;” whereas, Chronicles is, “as Father overruled it.” Compare the two: Saul’s death as recorded in I Samuel 31:6, to I Chronicles 10:13-14; also, in Kings, three verses are given to Hezekiah’s reformation; but, in Chronicles three Chapters are devoted to it..

Chronicles deals with the kingdom of Judah, because Christ was proclaimed the successor of David..

Chronicles refers to other Books:—Kings (II Chronicles 16:11; 27:7; 33:18); Prophets (I Chronicles 29:29; II Chronicles 9:29; 12:15; 13:22; 20:34; 26:22; 32:32). It gives the histories from the Divine Standpoint, pointing the moral, and giving the reason of both the Judgments and the Mercies (compare I Chronicles 10:13; II Chronicles 12:12; 25:20; 27:6)..

I mentioned genealogies moments ago, and that is where Chronicles opens. It also opens with something extremely important, it opens by revealing to us, part of the Key of David. What is the Key of David you ask? We can read of the Key of David in two places in Father's Word: the first is in the Old Testament, and is found in Isaiah 22:22: Isaiah 22:22 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open., and the second is found in the New Testament, in the Book of Revelation: Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; ‘These things saith He That is Holy, He That is True, He That hath the key of David, He That openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; [3:8] I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied My name.   —>   What is this door that only He can open? It the Truth in His Word. NO MAN, Not I, NOT any other preacher, minister or any other layperson can open or close your eyes and your mind to the Truth in His Word.

From the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, we read: “The name originally given to the record made by the appointed historiographers in the kingdoms of Israel and Judah. In the LXX. these books are called Paralipomena (i.e. things omitted), which is understood as meaning that they are supplementary to the Books of the Kings. The constant tradition of the Jews is that these books were for the most part compiled by Ezra. One of the greatest difficulties connected with the captivity and return must have been the maintenance of that genealogical distribution of the land which yet was a vital point of the Jewish economy. To supply this want and that each tribe might secure the inheritance of its fathers on its return was one object of the author of these books. Another difficulty intimately connected with the former was the maintenance of the temple services at Jerusalem. Zerubbabel, and after him Ezra and Nehemiah, labored most earnestly to restore the worship of God among the people, and to reinfuse something of national life and spirit into their hearts. Nothing could more effectually aid these designs than setting before the people a compendious history of the kingdom of David, its prosperity under God; the sins that led to its overthrow; the captivity and return. These considerations explain the plan and scope of that historical work which consists of the two Books of Chronicles. The first book contains the sacred history by genealogies from the Creation to David, including an account of David's reign. In the second book he continues the story, giving the history of the kings of Judah, without those of Israel, down to the return from the captivity. As regards the materials used by Ezra, they are not difficult to discover. The genealogies are obviously transcribed from some register in which were preserved the genealogies of the tribes and families drawn up at different times; while the history is mainly drawn from the same document as those used in the Books of the Kings.”.

With that introduction being said, let's go to Father and ask Him for His Blessings on our Study of His Word: “Father, we come to you right now to thank you for inviting us to Your table in order that we might be able to partake of and receive Your Spiritual Meat, and Father, as we prepare to dine on the sustenance which sustains our inner man, we ask that You Oh LORD open our ears and eyes, that we might be able to hear and see your Truths, open our hearts and minds and prepare us in order that we may receive Your Truth. We Pray for Your Understanding of Your Word, we seek Your Knowledge in Your Word and most importantly Father, we Pray for and desire Your Wisdom from Your Word, in Jesus' Precious name we Pray, thank You Father, Amen.

1:1 - 4 Direct. Adam to Noah (4004-
   2938)
1:1 - 1:27 From Adam to Abram.

I Chronicles 1:1 Adam (red earth) (aw-dawm'), Sheth (put, that is, substituted; or, compensated) (shayth), Enosh (a mortal; or mortal man) (en-ohsh'),   —>   Listing Adam first in this verse can lead those who don't know any better astray as; though Adam is indeed the first man in the lineage to Jesus; he was not the first man in the flesh in this Age, nor the first man of each race. Those men will forever remain un-named and in reality, their names, for the Purposes of Salvation and Eternal Life, are meaningless. Adam is the first of the male lineage to Jesus.

As I stated in my opening comments and introduction to this Chapter, we are immediately presented with the Key of David. How and why is this? Because, to whom does this say the lineage of David is Passed unto? Not to Cain who, and if you sat in a church pew all your life and were taught that Cain was David's son, you can see here, that Cain is NOT in David's Lineage. How can this be, you might ask? Very simply, first, go back and re-read the genealogies of Cain in Genesis 4, and that of Adam in Genesis 5, you'll find that Cain is NOT in Adam's genealogy. Why? Because, Adam was NOT Cain's father, satan was.

Though Sethsheth as he is called hereis Adam's son, he is not his first born, that was Abel; but, as we see Abel is not listed here, nor in Genesis 5, the reason for that is because, Cain slew Abel before he had any progeny; therefore, he is not listed in the lineage to Jesus.

The next thing you'll notice, if you're paying attention that is, is that none of Cain's offspring is listed in this genealogy listing, again, that's on purpose because Cainbeing satan's sonand his genealogythe kenites H7017are not in Jesus' lineage.

Adam was 130 years old when he fathered Seth, he then begat more sons and daughters, we don't know how many of each or how many total, nothing else of significance happened in his life in the following 830 years, and at the age of 930 he returned Home to Father. Seth was 105 when he fathered Enosh, he then begat more sons and daughters; again, we don't know how many of each or how many total, nothing else of significance happened in his life in the following 807 years, and at the age of 912 he returned Home to Father. Enosh as we'll learn in the next verse lived 90 years when he fathered Cainan; or Kenan as it's written here in I Chronicles 1, he then begat more sons and daughters; again, we don't know how many of each or how many total, nothing else of significance happened in his life in the following 815 years, and at the age of 905 he returned Home to Father.

Adam=First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H121, - אָדָם, - 'âdâm, pronounced - aw-dawm', and means: The same as H120; Adam, the name of the first man(Again, Adam is not the first man in this Flesh Age; but, the first man in the lineage to Father being born in the Flesh as His Only Begotten Son Jesus), also of a place in Palestine: - Adam. Total KJV occurrences: 21., as Dr. Smith and Dr. Easton both accepted and believed that Adam was the first man Father Created in the flesh, I’ll not put either of their descriptions of Adam here.

Seth=Or, as we find here in I Chronicles 1:1 Sheth. First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H8352, - שֵׁת, - shêth, pronounced - shayth, and means: From H7896; put, that is, substituted; Sheth, (I Emphatically Disagree with this next statement, Seth is Eve's third son; however, he is only Adam's second son) third son of Adam: - Seth, Sheth. Total KJV occurrences: 9., now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, we find: “(Genesis 4:25; 6:3; I Chronicles 1:1) (here too, I Emphatically Disagree with this next statement as, as Jesus Himself taught in John 8:44; and in Matthew 13:34-43, and the Apostle John taught in his Epistle I John 3:12, Cain was of satan, not Adam) the third son of Adam, and father of Enos. Adam handed down to Seth and his descendants the promise of mercy, faith in which became the distinction of God's children Genesis 4:26.”.

Enos=Or as we find here in I Chronicles 1:1 Enosh. First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H583, - אֱנוֹשׁ, - 'ĕnôsh, pronounced - en-ohsh', and means: The same as H582; Enosh, a son of Seth: - Enos. Total KJV occurrences: 7., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, we find: “The son of Seth Genesis 4:25; 5:6,7,9,10,11; Luke 3:38, properly ENOSH, as in I Chronicles 1:1.”.

I Chronicles 1:2 Kenan (fixed; or, possessor (kay-nawn'), Mahalaleel (praise of YAH; or, praise of YAH) (mah-hal-al-ale'), Jered (to descend; or, descent) (yeh'-red ),   —>   Cainan (Kenan) lived 70 years when he fathered Mahalaeel, he then begat more sons and daughters, we don't know how many of each or how many total, Like the men of verse 1:1 above, nothing else of significance happened in his life in the following 840 years, and at the age of 910 he returned Home to Father. Mahalaleel was 65 years old when he fathered Jared (Jered), he then begat more sons and daughters, we don't know how many of each or how many total, nothing else of significance happened in his life in the following 830 years, and at the age of 895 he returned Home to Father. Jared (Jered) was 162 years old when he fathered Enoch (Henoch), he then begat more sons and daughters, we don't know how many of each or how many total, nothing else of significance happened in his life in the following 800 years, and at the age of 962 he returned Home to Father.

Cainan=Or as we find here in I Chronicles 1:2: Kenan. First from the Strong’s Concordance we find that it is Hebrew word number: H7018, - קֵינָן, - qêynân, pronounced - kay-nawn', and means: From the same as H7064; fixed; Kenan, an antediluvian: - Cainan, Kenan. Total KJV occurrences: 6., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Son of Enos, aged 70 years when he begat Mahalaleel his son. He lived 840 years afterwards, and died aged 910 Genesis 6:9-14.”.

Mahalaleel=First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H4111, - מַהֲלַלְאֵל, - mahălal'êl, pronounced - mah-hal-al-ale', and means: From H4110 and H410; praise of God; Mahalalel, the name of an antediluvian patriarch and of an Israelite: - Mahalaleel. Total KJV occurrences: 7., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The fourth in descent from Adam, according to the Sethite genealogy, and son of Cainan Genesis 6:12,13,15-17; I Chronicles 1:2;Luke 3:37. Revised Version.”.

Jared=Or as we find in I Chronicles 1:2: Jered. First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H3382, - יֶרֶד, - yered, pronounced - yeh'-red, and means: From H3381; a descent; Jered, the name of an antediluvian, and of an Israelite: - Jared. Total KJV occurrences: 7., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “One of the antediluvian patriarchs, and further of Enoch Genesis 5:15,16,18-20; Luke 3:37. In the lists of Chronicles the name is given in the Authorized Version.”.

I Chronicles 1:3 Henoch (initiated; or dedicated) (khan-oke'), Methuselah (man of a dart; or, man of the dart) (meth-oo-sheh'-lakh), Lamech (an unused root of uncertain meaning; or, powerful) (leh'-mek),   —>   This Enoch is never to be confused with the Enoch of Genesis 4 as, the Enoch of Genesis 4 is of Cain's lingage, and thus, of satan's lineage; again, Jesus taught us this in Matthew 13:34-43.

Enoch (Henoch) was 65 years old when he begat Methuselah, he then begat more sons and daughters, we don't know how many of each or how many total, and then he walked another 300 years in this Flesh Age. Enoch is the second man of this list of men in Jesus' genealogy who had anything of significance happen in his life of which we can read about. What was it that Enoch did? We read of Enoch and what happened with him beginning in Genesis 5:24: Genesis 5:24Genesis 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.   —>   So let's look at this Enoch. The verse reads that Father “took Enoch.” By “took” it means that Enoch was as we read in Hebrews 11: Hebrews 11:5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.   —>   Let's look at the word “Translated,” as used here in this verse. In the Strong’s Concordance it is Greek word number G3346, - Μετατίθημι, - metatithēmi, pronounced - met-at-ith'-ay-mee, and means: From G3326, and G5087; to transfer, that is, (literally) transport, (by implication) exchange, (reflexively) change sides, or (figuratively) pervert: - carry over, change, remove. translate, turn., in other words, Father took Enoch Home to Himwithout dying, as in the future Father’s Prophet Elijah will be as can be read in II Kings 2:9because of the Truth which he was teaching. Father knew satan and his fallen angels would try and harm Enoch. Now we know this had to be good teaching, because this is totally different from His taking Nadab and Abihu home when they offered “strange fire” before the LORD at His Altar, as we read in Numbers 3: Numbers 3:4 And Nadab and Abihu died before the LORD, when they offered strange fire before the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai, and they had no children: and Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the priest's office in the sight of Aaron their father.   —>   We learn just what it was that Enoch was teaching in Jude 1:14: Jude 1:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, “Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, [1:15] To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”   —>   Enoch was telling all the ungodly people back then that they would receive the judgment from Father for declaring Him not to be and such. Who were there ungodly? To find the answer to that we have to look at the time that Enoch was he was the seventh from Adam, and what was taking place during this time, and for that we turn to Genesis 6:1: Genesis 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,   —>   Mankind in general, and the Adamic seedline in particular, also were doing as Father instructed and "replenishing" the earth, both male and females were being born in order to continue to populate the earth. [6:2] That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives all of which they chose.   —>   Who are these “sons of God?” We find our answer to that in Job 1:6: Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.   —>   These are the angels, and they are in heaven, only in Genesis 6 they have left heaven and have wronglyagainst Father’s Will and Plancome to the earth to fulfill satan's plan to again try and interrupt the seedline through which Father will become flesh. How and by what was Enoch teaching? Enoch was Divinely Instructed? Our answer to that question can be found in Romans 10: Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.   —>   He was teaching what Father wanted him to teach. And because of it, Father was pleased with what Enoch was teaching and therefore took him Home to be with Him.

Methuselah did not father Lamech until he was 187 years old, even Abram was only 100 when he lay with his wife Sarai and then she bare Isaac. Methuselah then lived for another 782 years begetting more sons and daughters; again, we don't know how many of each or even how many total he had begotten before he returned Home to Father at the ripe old age of nine hundred and sixty nine years=969 years. Wow, this is the oldest living flesh man recorded in Father's Word and I know of no other person who lived as long as Methuselah had. Apparently nothing else of significance happened in his life as, there is nothing recorded in Father's Word. Lamech was 182 when he fathered Noah. Lamech then lived another 595 years begetting sons and daughters, how many of each or even how many total Father's Word doesn't say. Nothing else of significance happened in his life is recorded in Father's Word and at the age of 777 he returned Home to Father. Seven Hundred Seventy Seven years, a grand number! Seven in Biblical Numerics denotes: Spiritual Completeness, and\or Spiritual Perfection. From Dr. Bullinger we read: “It is the number or hall-mark of the Holy Spirit's work. He is the Author of God's Word, and seven is stamped on it as the water-mark is seen in the manufacture of paper. He is the Author and Giver of life; and seven is the number which regulates every period of Incubation and Gestation, in insects, birds, animals, and man. A number which, therefore, occupies so large a place in the works, and especially in the Word of God as being inspired by the Holy Spirit.”.

Enoch=Or as we find here in I Chronicles 1:1 Henoch. First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H2585, - חֲנוֹךְ, - chănôk, pronounced - khan-oke', and means: From H2596; initiated; Chanok, an antediluvian patriarch: - Enoch. Total KJV occurrences: 16., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The son of Jared and father of Methuselah Genesis 5:21; Luke 3:37. In the Epistle of Jude Jude 1:14 he is described as "the seventh from Adam;" and the number is probably noticed as conveying the idea of divine completion and rest, while Enoch was himself a type of perfected humanity. After the birth of Methuselah it is said Genesis 5:22-24, that Enoch "walked with God three hundred years... and he was not; for God took him." The phrase "walked with God" is elsewhere only used of Noah Genesis 6:9; Genesis 17:1; etc., and is to be explained of a prophetic life spent in immediate converse with the spiritual world. Like Elijah, he was translated without seeing death. In the Epistle to the Hebrews the spring and issue of Enoch's life are clearly marked. Both the Latin and Greek fathers commonly coupled Enoch and Elijah as historic witnesses of the possibility of a resurrection of the body and of a true human existence in glory Revelation 11:3.”.

Methuselah=First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H4968, - מְתוּשֶׁלַח, - methûshelach, pronounced - meth-oo-sheh'-lakh, and means: From H4962 and H7973; man of a dart; Methushelach, an antediluvian patriarch: - Methuselah. Total KJV occurrences: 6., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The son of Enoch, sixth in descent from Seth, and father of Lamech Genesis 5:25-27.”.

Lamech=First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H3929, - לֶמֶךְ, - lemek, pronounced - leh'-mek, and means: From an unused root of uncertain meaning; Lemek, the name of two antediluvian patriarchs: - Lamech. Total KJV occurrences: 11., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The father of Noah Genesis 5:29.”.

I Chronicles 1:4 Noah (rest; or, rest) (no'-akh), Shem (name; or, name) (shame), Ham (hot (from the tropical habitat); or, hot, sunburnt) (khawm), and Japheth (expansion; or, enlargement) (Yeh'-feth).   —>   The order of the three of Noah's children are not in the correct order of their birth; as, the names are inverted. Japheth was the elder Genesis 10:2, while Shem was the youngest.

Because of verse Genesis 5:29 which reads: Genesis 5:29 And called his name Noah, saying, “This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed.”   —>   We see that Noah means “rest,” “comfort” or “consolation.”

When did Father curse the ground? He did that Back in Genesis 3:17-19. Right after the “great” sin of Adam and Eve.

So, why did Lamech name Noah as such  i.e., Comfort; or, Rest. What does the rest of the verse read? “...This same shall comfort us concerning our work...,” the word "work" should actually read "works." So then, let’s examine Father's Word for more of these "works." We'll start in Exodus 23:24, do you remember the last verse in Genesis 4, where “men began to call upon the name of the LORD?” Where they really weren't doing good, they were doing grievous toil or trouble and deeds? This is why we'll start in Exodus, Exodus 23:24 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images.   —>   We can also look in Leviticus 18:3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, ye shall not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.   —>   and again we can see in Micah 6:16 For the statutes of Omri are kept, and all the works of the house of Ahab, and ye walk in their counsels; that I should make thee a desolation, and the inhabitants thereof an hissing: therefore ye shall bear the reproach of My people.   —>   Lamech knew that his son would be better than most and would be obedient to Father and would be a "type" of saviour to the world.

The name Shem means, and you have to take the word out to the “prime” to come to the true meaning; but, it means, “conspicuous position,” or possibly “honour” or “authority.” It is through Shem's seedlinethrough Arphaxadthat the Adamic seedline to Joseph, Mary’s husband,Jesus’ Step-fatherwill continue. Shem lives through the flood and then after the flood begins his progeny: Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram.

Ham means “hot.” Ham will sin greatly after the flood, by “uncovering his father’s nakedness;”Leviticus 18or, laying with his father's wife, i.e., Ham's own mother. Ham's offspring will also bare Nimrod (to rebel) a mighty one and a mighty hunter, which is not a good thing  his name means “we will rebel; or, come, let us rebel.” Ham's progeny is: Canaan,with his mother, Noah's wifeCush, Mizraim, and Phut.

Japheth means “expansion.” The sons of Japheth were: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. The last we read of, of significance of Shem and Japheth is found really in Genesis 9 where we read: Genesis 9:24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. [9:25] And he said, “Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.” [9:26] And he said, “Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. [9:27] God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.”   —>   So, Noah cursed Canaan because he didn't want to see Canaan every day as a reminder of what his son Ham had done; so, as he stated, Japheth will get the Blessings of Expansion, his brother Shem will build tents, and he and his brother Japheth and their offspring will dwell in those tents, while Canaan their nephew will be their servant.

Noah=First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H5146, - נֹחַ, - nôach, pronounced - no'-akh, and means: The same as H5118; rest; Noach, the patriarch of the flood: - Noah. Total KJV occurrences: 46., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, we find that the description for Noah in the Smith’s is too long to list here; so, I’ll just post the link to it: Noah.

Shem=First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H8035, - שׁם, - shêm, pronounced - shame, and means: The same as H8034; name; Shem, a son of Noah (often including his posterity): - Sem, Shem., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The eldest son of Noah Genesis 5:32. He was 98 years old, married, and childless at the time of the flood. After it, he, with his father, brothers, sisters-in-law and wife, received the blessing of God Genesis 9:1, and entered into the covenant. With the help of his brother Japheth, he covered the nakedness of their father and received the first blessing Genesis 9:25-27. He died at the age of 630 years. The portion of the earth occupied by the descendants of Shem Genesis 10:21,31, begins at its northwestern extremity with Lydia, and includes Syria (Aram), Chaldaea (Arphaxad), parts Of Assyria (Asshur), of Persia (Elam), and of the Arabian peninsula (Joktan). Modern scholars have given the name of Shemitic or Semitic to the languages spoken by his real or supposed descendants. [HEBREW].”.

Ham=First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H2526, - חם, - châm, pronounced - khawm, and means: The same as H2525; hot (from the tropical habitat); Cham, a son of Noah; also (as a patronymic) his descendants or their country: - Ham., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The name of one of the three sons of Noah, apparently the second in age. Of the history of Ham nothing is related except his irreverence to his father and the curse which that patriarch pronounced. The sons of Ham are stated, to have been "Cush and Mizraim and Phut and Canaan" Genesis 10:6, compare with I Chronicles 1:8. Egypt is recognized as the "land of Ham" in the Bible Psalms 78:51; 105:23; 106:22. The other settlements of the sons of Ham are discussed under their respective names. The three most illustrious Hamite nations--the Cushites, the Phoenicians and the Egyptians--were greatly mixed with foreign peoples. Their architecture has a solid grandeur that we look for in vain elsewhere.”.

Japeth=First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H3315, - יפת, - yepheth, pronounced - yeh'-feth , and means: FromH6601; expansion; Jepheth, a son of Noah; also his posterity: - Japheth., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “One of the three sons of Noah. The descendants of Japheth occupied the "isles of the Gentiles" Genesis 10:5i.e. the coast lands of the Mediterranean Sea in Europe and Asia Minorwhence they spread northward over the whole continent of Europe and a considerable portion of Asia.”.

   (8-16).
1:5-23 Collateral. (Division.)
1:5-7 The sons of Japheth.

I Chronicles 1:5 The sons of Japheth; Gomer (completion; or, perfect) (go’-mer), and Magog (region of Gog) (maw-gogue’), and Madai (middle land) (maw-had’ee), and Javan (effervescing (that is, hot and active); or, clay) (yaw-vawn’), and Tubal (too-bal’), and Meshech (drawing out) (meh’-shek), and Tiras (desire) (tee-rawce').   —>   These sons of Japheth; not one of them turned out to Honor, Serve, or Worship Father, and we find in His Word that, He is against every one of them, see Ezekiel 38 as an example as, Father says that He will destroy every one of Japheth's son just prior to Jesus' 1,000 year Millennial Reign.

Gomer=Gomer was Japheth's oldest, and except for reading of Gomer in the genealogy listing of both Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, the only other mention of Gomer comes at the beginning of Ezekiel 38, and more specifically, in Ezekiel 38:6 where Father says that He will destroy Gomer along with his brothers just prior to the beginning of Jesus' 1,000 year Millennial Reign. Father's Word doesn't specifically say just what it was that Gomer and his offspring do to provoke Him to such anger; but, know this, Father is always fair and He won't and doesn't destroy anybody unless He has good reason. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H1586, - גֹּמֶר, - gômer, pronounced - go'-mer, and means: From H1584; completion; Gomer, the name of a son of Japheth and of his descendants; also of a Hebrewess: - Gomer. Total KJV occurrences: 6., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read (Note: I emphatically disagree with Dr Smith concerning his statement that the Cimmerians and Celts are the descendants of Gomer as, this would indicate that they were part of the ten northern tribes who were taken captive by the Assyrians in 611 B.C. and then went up over the Caucasus mountains; besides, Father's Word tells us that He was against Gomer and his brothers: Japheth's sons Ezekiel 38): “The eldest son of Japheth Genesis 10:2,3, the progenitor of the early Cimmerians, of the later Cimbri and the other branches of the Celtic family, and of the modern Gael and Cymri.”.

Magog=Like his brother Gomer, Father's Word in the Old Testament doesn't say exactly what it is that Magog does to anger Father to the height that He has angered with him; but, Father is very specific in that He will destroy him as can be read in Ezekiel 38. With that being said, when we come to the New Testament, as can be read in Revelation 20:8 we finally see what it is of Magog that angers Father, he joins himself unto Father's and our adversary: satan, who will attempt to overcome Father's saints. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H4031, - מָגוֹג, - mâgôg, pronounced - maw-gogue', and means: From H1463; Magog, a son of Japheth; also a barbarous northern region: - Magog. Total KJV occurrences: 4., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “In Genesis 10:2 Magog appears as the second son of Japheth. In Ezekiel 38:2; 39:1,6 ) it appears as a country or people of which Gog was the prince. The notices of Magog would lead us to fix a northern locality: it is expressly stated by Ezekiel that "he was to come up from the sides of the north" Ezekiel 39:2 from a country adjacent to that of Togarmah or Armenia, Deuteronomy 58:6 and not far from "the isles" or maritime regions of Europe. Ezekiel 39:6 The people of Magog further appear as having a force of cavalry Ezekiel 38:18, and as armed with the bow. Ezekiel 39:3. From the above data, may conclude that Magog represents the important race of the Scythians.”.

Madai=When we look up the name Madai, we only find two uses of it and both of them are in the genealogy listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1; however, when we look up the Strong's number associated with the name Madai, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H4074, and when we search for H4074 in e-sword we find another 14 uses associated with it and it leads us to the people of Media; or, The Medes. Madai is first seen on the Assyrian monuments 840 B. C. and is called Amadā, meaning that, his offspring are the Kurdish tribes east of Assyria, or the peoples in Iraq as we know it today, they were and are also credited with being the people who founded the first Iranian empire, the largest of its day until Cyrus the Great established a unified Iranian empire of the Medes and Persians, often referred to as the Achaemenid Empire; you know, the same people who are right in the center of all the activity in Iraq and the rest of the middle east today. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H4074, - מָדַי, - mâday, pronounced - maw-dah'ee, and means: Of foreign derivation; Madai, a country of central Asia: - Madai, Medes, Media. Total KJV occurrences: 16., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, we read: “ Genesis 10:2 is usually called the third son of Japhet, and the progenitor of the Medes; but probably all that is intended is that the Medes, as well as the Gomerites, Greeks, Tabareni, Moschi, etc., descended from Japheth.”.

Javan=Like his other brothers, when we look up the name Javan in Father's Word, we only find 7 uses of it, and 4 of those are used in the genealogy listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1. However, when we look up the Strong's Number associated with the name Javan, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H3120, and when we search for 3120 in e-sword, we find another 4 verses associated with it and it leads us to the peoples known as the Ionians of the Cuneiform Inscriptions, and the Tel-El-Amarna Tablets. The Greeks were first known by this name, and the reason for that is because when we trace out H3120 we find, it also associated with “Grecia,” (Dan 8:21; 10:20 and 11:2) and “Greece” in Zechariah 9:13. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H3120, - יָוָן, - yâvân, pronounced - yaw-vawn', and means: Probably from the same as H3196; effervescing (that is, hot and active); Javan, the name of a son of Japeth, and of the race (Ionians, that is, Greeks) descended from him, with their territory; also of a place in Arabia: - Javan. Total KJV occurrences: 11., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “A son of Japheth Genesis 10:2.4. Javan was regarded as the representative of the Greek race. The name was probably introduced into Asia by the Phoenicians, to whom the Ionians were naturally better known than any other of the Hellenic races, on account of their commercial activity and the high prosperity of their towns on the western coast of Asia Minor. Also, a town in the souther part of Arabia (Yemen), whither the Phoenicians traded Ezekiel 27:19.”.

Tubal=Tubal is only mentioned 5 times outside the genealogy listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, and they are all along with his brothers Gomer, Magog and Meshech in Ezekiel 38 where they are destroyed by Father. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H8422, - תּוּבַל, or תֻּבַל , - tûbal, or tûbal, pronounced - too-bal', or too-bal', and means: Probably of foreign derivation; Tubal, a postdiluvian patriarch and his posterity: - Tubal. Total KJV occurrences: 8., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Is reckoned with Javan and Meshech among the sons of Japheth Genesis 10:2; I Chronicles 1:5. The three are again associated in the enumeration of the sources of the wealth of Tyre Ezekiel 27:13. Tubal and Javan Isaiah 68:19, Meshech and Tubal Ezekiel 38:15;38:2,3; 39:1, are nations of the north Ezekiel 38:15; 39:2. Josephus identified the descendants of Tubal with the Iberians, that is, the inhabitants of a tract of country between the Caspian and Euxine Seas, which nearly corresponded to the modern Georgia.”.

Meshech=Meshech is only mentioned 5 times outside the genealogy listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, and they are all along with his brothers Gomer, Magog and Tubal in Ezekiel 38 where they are destroyed by Father. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H4902, - מֶשֶׁךְ, - meshek, pronounced - meh'-shek, The same in form as H4901, but probably of foreign derivation; Meshek, a son of Japheth, and the people descendant from him: - Mesech, Meshech. Total KJV occurrences: 9., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “A son of Japhet Genesis 10:2; I Chronicles 1:5, and the progenitor of a race frequently noticed in Scripture in connection with Tubal, Magog and other northern nations. They appear as allies of God Ezekiel 38:2,3; 39:1, and as supplying the Tyrians with copper and slaves Ezekiel 27:13. In Psalm 120:5 they are noticed as one of the remotest and at the same time rudest nations of the world. Both the name and the associations are in favor of the identification of Meshech with the Moschi , a people on the borders of Colchis and Armenia.”.

Tiras=The only mention of Tiras is in the genealogical listing of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H8494, - תִּירָס, - tı̂yrâs, pronounced - tee-rawce', and means: Probably of foreign derivation; Tiras, a son of Japheth: - Tiras. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The youngest son of Japheth Genesis 10:2; I Chronicles 10:5, usually identified with the Thracians, as presenting the closest verbal approximation to the name.”.

I Chronicles 1:6 And the sons of Gomer; Ashchenaz (spreading fire) (ash-ken-az’), and Riphath (spoken) (ree-fath'), and Togarmah (to-gar-maw’).    —>    Ashkenaz=Or as we read here in I Chronicles 1:6: Ashchenaz. A total of three verses are dedicated to Ashkenaz; 2 of which are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, the third is found in the prophesies of Father's Prophet Yir-meh-yaw'-hoo (Jeremiah), where we that Ashkenaz joins with the kingdoms of Ararat and Minni to come against Babylon. First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H813, - אַשְׁכְּנַז, - 'ashkenaz, pronounced - ash-ken-az', and means: Of foreign origin; Ashkenaz, a Japhethite, also his descendants: - Ashkenaz. Total KJV occurrences: 3., now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “One of the three sons of Gomer, son of Japheth Genesis 10:3. We may probably recognize the tribe of Ashkenaz on the northern shore of Asia Minor in the name of Lake Ascanius, and in Europe in the name Scandia, Scandinavia . I emphatically disagree with the following statement: Knobel considers that Ashkenaz is to be identified with the German race.”.

Riphath=The only mention of Riphath in Father's Word is in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H7384, - רִיפַת, - rı̂yphath, pronounced - ree-fath', and means: The second form is probably by orthographical error; of foreign origin; Riphath, a grandson of Jepheth and his descendants: - Riphath. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The second son of Gomer Genesis 10:3. The name may be identified with the Rhipaean mountains, i.e. the Carpathian range in the northeast of Dacia.”.

Togarmah=Four verses are dedicated to Togarmah, 2 in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, and 2 in the prophesies of Father's Prophet Yekh-ez-kale' (Ezekiel), the first in Ezekiel 27:14, where they that are of the house of Togarmah traded in horses, and then again in Ezekiel 38; though, this time his descendants along with his brother Gomer's descendants in Ezekiel 38:6 where we read of them being destroyed. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H8425, - תּוֹגַרְמָה, or תֹּגַרְמָה , - tôgarmâh , or tôgarmâh, pronounced - to-gar-maw', or to-gar-maw', and means: Probably of foreign derivation; Togarmah, a son of Gomer and his posterity: - Togarmah. Total KJV occurrences: 4., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “A son of Gomer, of the family of Japheth, and brother of Ashkenaz and Riphath Genesis 10:3. His descendants became a people engaged in agriculture, breeding horses and mules to be sold in Tyre Ezekiel 27:14. They were also a military people, well skilled in the use of arms. Togarmah was probably the ancient name of Armenia.”.

I Chronicles 1:7 And the sons of Javan; Elishah ( God is salvation) (el-ee-shaw’), and Tarshish (established) (Tar-sheesh’), Kittim (kit-tee-ee’), and Dodanim ( leaders) (do-daw-neem’).    —>    Elishah=Three verses are dedicated to Javan's oldest son Elishah, the first 2 are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, and the third is in the prophesies of Father's Prophet Yekh-ez-kale' (Ezekiel), in Ezekiel 27:7, and even there the mention of Elishah is as an island which is actually Cyprus. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H473, - אֱלִישָׁה, - 'ĕlı̂yshâh, pronounced - el-ee-shaw', and means: Probably of foreign derivation; Elishah, a son of Javan: - Elishah. Total KJV occurrences: 3., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The eldest son of Javan Genesis 10:4. The residence of his descendants is described in Ezekiel 27:7 as the isles of Elishah, whence the Phoenicians obtained their purple and blue dyes. Some connect the race of Elishah with the AEolians, others with Elishah, and in a more extended sense Peloponnesus, or even Hellas.”.

Tarshish=Besides the 2 genealogical mentions of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, Tarshish is also mentioned another 20 plus times in Father's Word; however, almost always as a location. During the days of the Kings of Israel, Tarshish was noted for it's silver, tin, iron and lead. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H8659, - תַּרְשִׁישׁ, - tarshı̂ysh, pronounced - tar-sheesh', and means: Probably the same as H8658 (as the region of the stone, or the reverse); Tarshish, a place on the Mediterranean, hence the epithet of a merchant vessel (as if for or from that port); also the name of a Persian and of an Israelite: - Tarshish, Tharshish. Total KJV occurrences: 28., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Probably Tartessus, a city and emporium of the Phoenicians in the south of Spain, represented as one of the sons of Javan Genesis 10:4; I Kings 10:22; I Chronicles 1:7; Psalms 48:7; Isaiah 2:16; Jeremiah 27:12,25; Jonah 1:3; 4:2. The identity of the two places is rendered highly probable by the following circumstances: 1st. There is a very close similarity of name between them, Tartessus being merely Tarshish in the Aramaic form. 2nd. There seems to have been a special relation between Tarshish and Tyre, as there was at one time between Tartessus and Phoenicians. 3rd. The articles which Tarshish is stated by the prophet Ezekiel Ezekiel 27:12, to have supplied to Tyre are precisely such as we know, through classical writers, to have been productions of the Spanish peninsula. In regard to tin, the trade of Tarshish in this metal is peculiarly significant, and, taken in conjunction with similarity of name and other circumstances already mentioned, is reasonably conclusive as to its identity with Tartessus. For even not when countries in Europe or on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea where tin is found are very few; and in reference to ancient times, it would be difficult to name any such countries except Iberia or Spain, Lusitania, which was somewhat less in extent than Portugal, and Cornwall in Great Britain. In the absence of positive proof, we may acquiesce in the statement of Strabo, that the river Baetis (now the Guadalquivir) was formerly called Tartessus, that the city Tartessus was situated between the two arms by which the river flowed into the sea, and that the adjoining country was called Tartessis.”.

kittim=Kittim too is listed in both the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, and the other 6 mentions are of a location. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H3794, - כִּתִּי, or כִּתִּיִּי , - kittı̂y, or kittı̂yı̂y, pronounced - kit-tee', or kit-tee-ee', and means: Patrial from an unused name denoting Cyprus (only in the plural); a Kittite or Cypriote; hence an islander in general, that is, the Greeks or Romans on the shores opposite Palestine: - Chittim, Kittim. Total KJV occurrences: 8., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Twice written in the Authorized Version for Chittim Genesis 10:4; I Chronicles 1:7.”.

Dodanim=The only two mentions of Dodanim is in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H1721, - דֹּדָנִים, or רֹדָנִים , - dôdânı̂ym, or rôdânı̂ym, pronounced - do-daw-neem', or ro-daw-neem', and means: The second form is used by orthographical error in I Chronicles 1:7. A plural of uncertain derivation; Dodanites, or descendants of a son of Javan: - Dodanim. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “ Genesis 10:4; I Chronicles 1:7 a family or race descended from Javan, the son of Japhet Genesis 10:4; I Chronicles 1:7. Dodanim is regarded as identical with the Dardani, who were found in historical times in Illyricum and Troy.”.

1:8-16 The sons of Ham.

I Chronicles 1:8 The sons of Ham; Cush (black) (koosh), and Mizraim (red soil) (mits-hah’-yim), Put (a bow) (poot), and Canaan (humiliated; or, low or flat) (ken-ah'-an).   —>   All of Ham's offspring left from where their father Ham, their uncles Japheth and Shem, and their grandfather Noah inhabited after the flood.

Cush=Cush and his family moved to and settled the lands of Ethiopia and southern Egypt. Discoveries at Pterium, Cappadocia, show that the Babylonians call Cappadocia Kus. The “great” king of the Hittites had his palace there and was called “the king of Kus.” The River Gihon which flows through the land of Kus, deposits directly into the Mediterranean. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H3568, - כּוּשׁ, - kûsh, pronounced - koosh, and means: Probably of foreign origin; Cush (or Ethiopia), the name of a son of Ham, and of his territory; also of an Israelite: - Chush, Cush, Ethiopia. Total KJV occurrences: 30., and now from the Easton’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “A son, probably the eldest, of Ham, and the father of Nimrod Genesis 10:8; I Chronicles 1:10. From him the land of Cush seems to have derived its name. The question of the precise locality of the land of Cush has given rise to not a little controversy. The second river of Paradise surrounded the whole land of Cush Genesis 2:13. The term Cush is in the Old Testament generally applied to the countries south of the Israelites. It was the southern limit of Egypt Ezekiel 29:10, A.V. "Ethiopia," Heb. Cush, with which it is generally associated Psalms 68:31; Isaiah 18:1; Jeremiah 46:9; etc.. It stands also associated with Elam Isaiah 11:11, with Persia Ezekiel 38:5, and with the Sabeans Isaiah 45:14. From these facts it has been inferred that Cush included Arabia and the country on the west coast of the Red Sea. Rawlinson takes it to be the country still known as Khuzi-stan, on the east side of the Lower Tigris. But there are intimations which warrant the conclusion that there was also a Cush in Africa, the Ethiopia (so called by the Greeks) of Africa. Ezekiel speaks Ezekiel 29:10; compare with 30:4-6 of it as lying south of Egypt. It was the country now known to us as Nubia and Abyssinia Isaiah 18:1; Zephaniah 3:10, Heb. Cush. In ancient Egyptian inscriptions Ethiopia is termed Kesh . The Cushites appear to have spread along extensive tracts, stretching from the Upper Nile to the Euphrates and Tigris. At an early period there was a stream of migration of Cushites "from Ethiopia, properly so called, through Arabia, Babylonia, and Persia, to Western India." The Hamite races, soon after their arrival in Africa, began to spread north, east, and west. Three branches of the Cushite or Ethiopian stock, moving from Western Asia, settled in the regions contiguous to the Persian Gulf. One branch, called the Cossaeans, settled in the mountainous district on the east of the Tigris, known afterwards as Susiana; another occupied the lower regions of the Euphrates and the Tigris; while a third colonized the southern shores and islands of the gulf, whence they afterwards emigrated to the Mediterranean and settled on the coast of Palestine as the Phoenicians. Nimrod was a great Cushite chief. He conquered the Accadians, a Tauranian race, already settled in Mesopotamia, and founded his kingdom, the Cushites mingling with the Accads, and so forming the Chaldean nation.”.

Mizraim=Mizraim Egypt, became the name of Egypt “the two Matsors.” One Matsor was country of the Delta within the great wall of defense called “Shur,” the other was Egypt proper. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H4714, - מִצְרַיִם, - mitsrayim, pronounced - mits-rah'-yim, and means: Dual of H4693; Mitsrajim, that is, Upper and Lower Egypt: - Egypt, Egyptians, Mizraim. Total KJV occurrences: 681., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The usual name of Egypt in the Old Testament the dual of Mazor, which is less frequently employed. Mizraim first occurs in the account of the Hamites in Genesis 10:1 ... In the use of the name Mizraim for Egypt there can be no doubt that the dual indicates the two regions, upper and lower Egypt, into which the country has always been divided by nature as well as by its inhabitants.”.

Phut=Or as we read here in I Chronicles 1:8, “Put.” Besides the two mentions in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1:8, there are five other mentions of Put (Phut) Strong's word number: H6316. Once as a territory called Put, and three times identified as the territory of Libya. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H6316, - פּוּט, - pûṭ, pronounced - poot, and means: Of foreign origin; Put, a son of Ham, also the name of his descendants or their region, and of a Persian tribe: - Phut, Put. Total KJV occurrences: 7., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The third name in the list of the sons of Ham Genesis 10:6; I Chronicles 1:8 elsewhere applied to an African country or people. The few mentions of Phut in the Bible clearly indicate a country or people of Africa, and, it must be added, probably not far from Egypt Isaiah 66:19; Jeremiah 46:9; Ezekiel 27:10; 30:5; 38:5; Nahum 3:9. Some identify it with Libya, in the northern part Africa near the Mediterranean Sea; others, as Mr. Poole, with Nubia, south of Egypt.”.

Canaan=Canaan was Ham's son sired during the incestuous relationship with his own mother, and whom his step-father\grandfatherNoahbanished from being around him and his family because heNoahdidn't want to be reminded everyday what had taken place between his wife and his own son. Canaan left and settled the territories named after him, which later became the Promised Land where Father moved Abram and his family to, and told him that his offspring would inherit this land of an everlasting possession, this would be an everlasting Covenant between Father and Abram; but, first, Abram's offspring would become a stranger in a strange land for 400 years, and after that 400 years was up, He would bring them out and lead them into the land of Canaan: The Promised Land. While our forefathers were in bondage to the Egyptians for those 400 years, Canaan's offspring: Heth, the Jebusite, the Amorite, the Girgashite, the Hivite, the Arkite, the Sinite, the Arvadite, the Zemarite and the Hamathite, had spread out and completely inhabited the land their father named Canaan, besides some of the names which matched the names of his offspring, some of the other key city names included: Sidon, Gaza, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Ekron, and Gath, which were the five principle cities of the Philistines.  To this day, Canaan, now known as that little tiny Nation called: Israel, is rich in History. Now from the Strong’s Concordance we find that it is Hebrew word number: H3667, - כּנען, - kena‛an, pronounced - ken-ah'-an, and means: From H3665; humiliated; Kenaan, a son of Ham; also the country inhabited by him: - Canaan, merchant, traffick., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary: “The fourth son of Ham Genesis 10:6; I chronicles 1:8, the progenitor of the Phoenicians [ZIDON ], and of the various nations who before the Israelite conquest people the seacoast of Palestine, and generally the while of the country westward of the Jordan Genesis 10:13; I Chronicles 1:13. The name "Canaan" is sometimes employed for the country itself.”.

I Chronicles 1:9 And the sons of Cush; Seba (seb-aw’), and Havilah (circular; or, circle) (khav-ee-law’), and Sabta (stinking) (sab-taw’), and Raamah (horse’s mane) (rah-maw’), and Sabtecha (stinking) (sab-tek-aw’). And the sons of Raamah; Sheba (an oath, seven) (sheb-aw’), and Dedan (low country) (deh-daw’-neh).   —>    Seba=Seba is mentioned only twice outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, those two places are Psalms 72:10 where Father Solomon is telling Father that all the world will bring gifts to Israel's Redeemer, and Seba are the peoples who inhabit the southern territory of Tarshish, and then again in Isaiah 43:3 where we read that Father had given the world to Cyrus for his obedience in assisting Ezra, Nehemiah and the People of Israel in rebuilding Jerusalem after their 70 year captivity. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H5434, - סְבָא, - sebâ', pronounced - seb-aw', and means: Of foreign origin; Seba, a son of Cush, and the country settled by him: - Seba. Total KJV occurrences: 4., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “(pl. Sebaim ; in Authorized Version incorrectly rendered Sabeans) heads the list of the sons of Cush. Besides the mention of Seba in the lists of the pens of Cush Genesis 10:7; I Chronicles 1:9, there are but three notices of the nation psalms 72:10; Isaiah 43:3; 45:14. These passages seem to show that Seba was a nation of Africa bordering on or included in Cush, and in Solomon's time independent and of political importance. It may perhaps be identified with the island of Meroe. Josephus says that Saba was the ancient name of the Ethiopian island and city of Meroe, but he writes Seba, in the notice of the Noachian settlements, Sabas. The island of Meroe lay between the Astaboras, the Atbara, the most northern tributary of the Nile, and the Astapus, the Bahr el-Azrak, "Blue River," the eastern of its two great confluents.”.

Havilah=There are seven mentions of Havilah, Strong's word number H2341, four in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10; I Chronicles 1;two as a son of cush, and two as a son of Joktanand then, 3 other times as a land, or territory, the first being in Genesis 2 where we read: Genesis 2:10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. [2:11] The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; [2:12] And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.   —>   Havialh is known as the “region of sand,” and as we see by these verses, is connected with Eden, the Garden of Father. It is also mentioned in Genesis 25:18, and I Samuel 15:7. Shur would be the E. end of Havilah. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H2341, - חֲוִילָה, - chăvı̂ylâh, pronounced - khav-ee-law', and means: Probably from H2342; circular; Chavilah, the name of two or three eastern regions; also perhaps of two men: - Havilah. Total KJV occurrences: 7., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “A son of Cush Genesis 10:7; I Chronicles 1:9.”.

Sabtah=Or as we read here in I Chronicles 1:9, Sabat. The only two mentions of Sabtah (Sabat) in Father's Word are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H5454, - סַבְתָּא, or סַבְתָּה , - sabtâ', or sabtâh, pronounced - sab-taw', or sab-taw', and means: Probably of foreign derivation; Sabta or Sabtah, the name of a son of Cush, and the country occupied by his posterity: - Sabta, Sabtah. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The third in order of the sons of Cush Genesis 10:7; I Chronicles 1:9.”.

Raamah=There are only three mentions of Raamah in Father's Word, and only one outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, and we find that in Ezekiel 27 where, we find that Raamah's descendants were merchants who dwelt in spices, precious stones and gold. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H7484, - רַעְמָה, - ra‛mâh, pronounced - rah-maw', and means: The same as H7483; Ramah, the name of a grandson of Ham, and of a place (perhaps founded by him): - Raamah. Total KJV occurrences: 5., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “A son of Cush and father of the Cushite Sheba and Dedan Genesis 10:7. The tribe of Raamah became afterward renowned as traders Ezekiel 27:22. They were settled on the Persian Gulf.”.

Sabtecha=The only two mentions of Sebtecha in Father's Word are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H5455, - סַבְתְּכָא , - sabtekâ', pronounced - sab-tek-aw', and means: Probably of foreign derivation; Sabteca, the name of a son of Cush, and the region settled by him: - Sabtecha, Sabtechah. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The fifth in order of the sons of Cush Genesis 10:7; I Chronicles 1:9.”.

Sheba=Outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10:7; 10:28; 25:3; I Chronicles 1:9; I Chronicles 1:22; I Chronicles 1:32; there are 17 other mentions of Sheba in Father's Word, most are of the land\territory spelled Sheba, and we find that the people of Sheba are called Sebeans in Job 1:15. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H7614, - שְׁבָא, - shebâ', pronounced - sheb-aw', and means: Of foreign origin; Sheba, the name of three early progenitors of tribes and of an Ethiopian district: - Sheba, Sabeans. Total KJV occurrences: 23., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Heb. shebha, the son of Raamah Genesis 1:7; I Chronicles 1:9, whose descendants settled with those of Dedan on the Persian Gulf.”.

Dedan=We can read of Dedan in six different passages in  Father's Word outside of the genealogical listings of Genesis 10; Genesis 25; I Chronicles 9 and I Chronicles 1:32. Of course, there were two different Dedans, one the son of Cush, the son of Ham, the son of Noah; and the other the son of Jokshan, the son of Abraham. In all of those six verses which are outside the genealogical listings, we find that Dedan's descendants are amongst those who Father tells His Prophet Yir-meh-yaw'-hoo (Jeremiah) to go to and pour out the cup of His wrath upon Jeremiah 25: Jeremiah 25:15 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me; ‘Take the wine cup of this fury at My hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it. [25:16] And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them.’ [25:17] Then took I the cup at the LORD’S hand, and made all the nations to drink, unto whom the LORD had sent me:   —>   Skip with me down to the verse we came here to the Book of Jeremiah for, verse 25:23: [ 25:23] Dedan, and Tema, and Buz, and all that are in the utmost corners,   —>   As we see, Father was quite angry with Dedan and a bunch of other nation which I did not include in these copied in passages, most notably Jerusalem; but, anyway, Father was angry with them because, they served themselves and not Father. We next read of a brief mention Dedan's descendants Jeremiah 49:8 and then again in Ezekiel 25 where we read that Father says that Dedan's descendants will fall by the sword, and then we read that they were merchants dealing in ebony, ivory and clothes for chariots in Ezekiel 27 and then that they are also mentioned in Ezekiel 38. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H1719, - דְּדָן, or דְּדָנֶה , - edân, or dedâneh, pronounced - ded-awn', or deh-daw'-neh, and means: Of uncertain derivation; Dedan, the name of two Cushites and of their territory. The second form used in Ezekiel 25:13: - Dedan. Total KJV occurrences: 11., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The name of a son of Raamah, son of Cush Genesis 10:7; I Chronicles 1:9.”.

I Chronicles 1:10 And Cush begat Nimrod (rebellion, or the valiant) (nim-rode’): he began to be mighty upon the earth.    —>   Nimrod=marad in Hebrew, and means: to rebel. When we do a search on either the name Nimrod, or the Strong’s numberH5248associated with the name, we find that there are only 4 verses which contain the actual name; however, there are several more verses which provide more info concerning Nimrod which give us a clearer background of him. For instance, immediately following the genealogical listing in Genesis 10, we read: Genesis 10:8 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.   —>   Investigating this “he began to be a mighty one in the earth,” we find that the word “mighty” is in the Strong’s Concordance, Hebrew word number: H1368, - גִּבּוֹר, or גִּבֹּר , - gibbôr, or gibbôr, pronounced - ghib-bore', or ghib-bore', and means: Intensive from the same as H1397; powerful; by implication warrior, tyrant: - champion, chief, X excel, giant, man, mighty (man, one), strong (man), valiant man. Total KJV occurrences: 159., Dr. Bullinger has a wonderful work in his Companion Bible, of which we can read Appendix 25 to get a clearer picture; but, even more so, we should also read his Appendix 28, which I'll copy in here: “JOSEPHUS (ANT. JUD. i. c. 4. 2) says: "Nimrod persuaded mankind not to ascribe their happiness to God, but to think that his own excellency was the source of it. And he soon changed things into a tyranny, thinking there was no other way to wean men from the fear of God, than by making them rely upon his own power." THE TARGUM OF JONATHAN says: "From the foundation of the world none was ever found like Nimrod, powerful in hunting, and in rebellions against the Lord." THE JERUSALEM TARGUM says: "He was powerful in hunting and in wickedness before the Lord, for he was a hunter of the sons of men, and he said to them, 'Depart from the judgment of the Lord, and adhere to the judgment of Nimrod!' Therefore is it said : 'As Nimrod [is] the strong one, strong in hunting, and in wickedness before the Lord.'" THE CHALDEE PARAPHRASE OF I Chronicles 1:10 says: "Cush begat Nimrod, who began to prevail in wickedness, for he shed innocent blood, and rebelled against Jehovah." Nimrod was the founder of Babylon, which partook of his character as being the great antagonist of God's Truth and God's People. We cannot fail to see, in Nimrod, Satan's first attempt to raise up a human universal ruler of men. There have been many subsequent attempts, such as Nebuchadnezzar, Alexander, Napoleon, and others. He will finally succeed in the person of the Antichrist.”. [10:9] He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.   —>   As we saw when we read Dr. Bullinger’s Appendix 28, we saw that Nimrod was actually the first to openly rebel against Father and everything righteous.  [10:10] And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. [10:11] Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah, [10:12] And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.   —>   So, after he became rebellious against Father, he then went on to build first Babylon and then several other cities which also rebelled against Father for many, many years, some even to this day.

Nimrod=First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H5248, - נִמְרוֹד, or נִמְרֹד , - nimrôd, or nimrôd, pronounced - nim-rode', or nim-rode', and means: Probably of foreign origin; Nimrod, a son of Cush: - Nimrod. Total KJV occurrences: 4., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “A son of Cush and grandson of Ham. The events of his life are recorded in Genesis 10:8 ff., from which we learn (1) that he was a Cushite; (2) that he established an empire in Shinar (the classical Babylonia) the chief towns being Babel, Erech, Accad and Calneh; and (3) that he extended this empire northward along the course of the Tigris over Assyria, where he founded a second group of capitals, Nineveh, Rehoboth, Calah and Resen.”.

I Chronicles 1:11 And Mizraim begat Ludim (strife) (loo-dee-ee’), and Anamim (an-aw-meem’), and Lehabim (flames; or, fiery, flaming) (leh-haw-beem’), and Naphtuhim (border-people) (naf-too-kheem’),    —>   Ludim=The only other mention of Ludim and or his descendants outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1 is found in Jeremiah 46:9, where we read that they were experts in handling, stringing and drawing the bow, in other words, they were superb archers. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H3866, - לוּדִי, or לוּדִיִּי , - lûdı̂y, or lûdı̂yı̂y, pronounced - loo-dee', or loo-dee-ee', and means: Patrial from H3865; a Ludite or inhabitant of Lud (ony in plural): - Ludim, Lydians. Total KJV occurrences: 3., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Genesis 10:13; I Chronicles 1:11 a Mizraite people or tribe descended from Ludim the son of Mizraim; also called Lydians. It is probable that the Ludim were settled to the west of Egypt, perhaps farther than any other Mizraite tribe. Lud and the Ludim are mentioned in four passages of the prophets Isaiah 66:19; Jeremiah 46:9; Ezekiel 27:10; 38:5. There call be no doubt that but one nation is intended in these passages, and it seems that the preponderance of evidence is in favor of the Mizaraite Ludim.”.

Anamim=The only mention of Anamim and the Strong’s word number associated with it H6047, is found in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10; I Chronicles 1. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H6047, - עֲנָמִים, - ‛ănâmı̂ym, pronounced - an-aw-meem', and means: As if plural of some Egyptian word; Anamim, a son of Mizraim and his descendants, with their country: - Anamim. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary: where we read: “A Mizraite people or tribe Genesis 10:13; I Chronicles 1:11.”.

Lehabim=The only mention of Lehabim and the Strong’s word number associated with it H3853, is found in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10; I Chronicles 1. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H3853, - לְהָבִים, - lehâbı̂ym, pronounced - leh-haw-beem', and means: Plural of H3851; flames; Lehabim, a son of Mizrain, and his descendants: - Lehabim. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Occurring only in Genesis 10:13 the name of a Mizraite people or tribe. There can be no doubt that they are the same as the Rebu or Lebu of the Egyptian inscriptions, and that from them Libya and the Libyans derived their name. These primitive Libyans appear to have inhabited the northern part of Africa to the west of Egypt, though latterly driven from the coast by the Greek colonists of the Cyrenaica.”.

Naphtuhim=The only other mention of Naphtuhim and the Strong’s word number associated with it H5320, outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10; I Chronicles 1, is of a construct, in other words, as a name of a place is found in Judges 4:6, where we read that Deborah had sent for and called Barak out of Kedesh-naphtali. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H5320, - נַפְתֻּחִים, - naphtûchı̂ym, pronounced - naf-too-kheem', and means: Plural of foreign origin; Naphtuchim, an Egyptian tribe: - Naptuhim. Total KJV occurrences: 3., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “A Mizraite (Egyptian) nation or tribe mentioned only in the account of the descendants of Noah Genesis 10:13; I Chronicles 1:11. If we may judge from their position in the list Of the Mizraites, the Naphtuhim were possibly settled, at first, either in Egypt or immediately to the west of it.”.

I Chronicles 1:12 And Pathrusim (path-roo-see’), and Casluhim (fortified) (kas-loo-kheem’), (of whom came the Philistines (immigrants) and Caphthorim (a crown) (kaf-to-ree’).   —>   We see a very important fact in this verse in that, it very specifically states that the Philistines were descendants of Casluhim, who was a son of Mizraim, who was a son of Ham, who was a son of Noah.

Pathrusrim=Of Pathros. The only mention of Pathrusim and the Strong’s word number associated with it H6625, is in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10; I Chronicles 1; however, as we find that it is a partial of H6624, we also find that there are 5 other mentions in Father's Word, and they all are of the territory of Pathros, which was a part of Egypt. Now, from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H6625, - פַּתְרֻסִי, - pathrûsı̂y, pronounced - path-roo-see', and means: Partial from H6624; a Pathrusite, or inhabitant of Pathros: - Pathrusim. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “A part of Egypt, and a Mizraite tribe whose people were called Pathrusim. In the list of the Mizraites the Pathrusim occur after the Naphtuhim and before the Caluhim; the latter being followed by the notice of the Philistines and by the Caphtorim Genesis 10:13,14; I Chronicles 1:12. Pathros is mentioned in the prophecies of Isaiah Isaiah 11:11, Jeremiah Jeremiah 44:1,15, and Ezekiel Ezekiel 29:14; 30:13-18. It was probably part or all of upper Egypt, and we may trace its name in the Pathyrite name, in which Thebes was situated.”.

Casluhim=Casluhim is only mentioned in Father's Word in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10I Chronicles 1. Now from the Strong’s Concordance we find that it is Hebrew word number: H3695, - כַּסְלֻחִים, - kaslûchı̂ym, pronounced - kas-loo'-kheem, and means: A plural probably of foreign derivation; Casluchim, a people cognate to the Egyptian: - Casluhim. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “A Mizraite people or tribe Genesis 10:14; I Chronicles 1:12.”.

Philistines=Genesis 10:14 reads: Genesis 10:14 And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,) and Caphtorim.   —>   Dr. Bullinger notes in his Companion Bible the following after this verse: “Hence the name of Palestine. Compare with Amos 9:7 and Jeremiah 47:4. The parenthesis in this verse should come after Caphtorim as these gave the name Philistine. The five cities of the Philistines (Gaza, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Ekron, and Gath) were on the confines of Egypt (Deuteronomy 2:23) my addition here: [Deuteronomy 2:23 And the Avims which dwelt in Hazerim, even unto Azzah, the Caphtorims, which came forth out of Caphtor, destroyed them, and dwelt in their stead.)]. When we research the word “Philistine” in the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is H6430, and when we search E-sword for H6430, we find that there are 244 passages and 288 matches for that particular Strong’s number,almost all of them outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1and it comes up either Philistine or Philistines. Taking it back toward it's Prime, we next come to H6429 which gives us the words: Palestina, Palestine, Philistia, and\or Philistines. I find it interesting that the words Palestina and Palestine are included in this Strong’s word number; and though I find it interesting, it would make sense that it actually has been the Palestinian muslim who our forefathers had and have been fighting all these many years, and to think that they came from Ham's offspring. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H6430, - פּלשׁתּי, - pelishtı̂y, pronounced - pelishtı̂y, and means: Patrial from H6429; a Pelishtite or inhabitant of Pelesheth: - Philistine., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary: The description of the Philistines in the Smith’s Bible Dictionary is extensive and too long to post here; so, I’ll instead just post the link to it: Philistines; but know this, I emphatically disagree with Dr. Smith’s statement which states that: “The origin of the Philistines is nowhere expressly stated in the Bible.” as; as we can read in Genesis 10:14, Father’s Word does indeed expressly state the origin of the Philistines, they are descended from Casluhim, who was descended from Mizraim Genesis 10:13-14, who was descended from Ham Genesis 10:6, who was descended from Noah Amos 9:7.

Caphthroim=Crete. When we research the word “Caphthorim” in the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is H3732, and when we search E-sword for H3732, we find that there are 3 passages and 3 matches for that particular Strong’s number,only one outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1and it comes up either Caphthorim or Caphthorims. Taking it back toward it's Prime, we next come to H3731 which gives us the word: “Caphor.” We discover by reading Deuteronomy 2:23 that the Caphthorims came out of Caphor, and as I note at the beginning of this Paragraph, “Crete,” in other words, Ham's great-grandsons the Caphthorim's destroyed the inhabitants of Crete who were known as, the Avims, and then inhabited the Isle of Crete for themselves. Now from the Strong’s Concordance we find that it is Hebrew word number: H3732, - כַּפְתֹּרִי, - kaphtôrı̂y, pronounced - kaf-to-ree', and means: Partial from H3731; a Caphtorite (collectively) or native of Caphtor: - Caphthorim, Caphtorim (-s). Total KJV occurrences: 3., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Thrice mentioned as the primitive seat of the Philistines, Deuteronomy 2:23; Jeremiah 47:4; Amos 9:7, who are once called Caphtorim Deuteronomy 2:23. Supposed to be in Egypt, or near to it in Africa.”.

I Chronicles 1:13 And Canaan begat Zidon (tsee-done') his firstborn, and Heth (terror; and, terror) (khayth),    —>   Sidon=Or as we read in I Chronicles 1: Zidon. Sidon is the oldest of the Canaanite cities. We can read of Sidon in 20 passages outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1 in Father’s Word. The other mentions of Sidon are of the land\territory spelled Zidon, and we find that the people of Zidon are called Zidonians; but, of course, they are the descendants of Ham through his son Canaan. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H6721, - צִידוֹן, or צִידֹן , - tsı̂ydôn, or tsı̂ydôn, pronounced - tsee-done', or tsee-done', and means: From H6679 in the sense of catching fish; fishery; Tsidon, the name of a son of Canaan, and of a place in Palestine: - Sidon, Zidon. Total KJV occurrences: 23., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Genesis 10:15,19; Joshua 11:8; 19:28; Judges 1:31; 18:28; Isaiah 23:2,4,12; Jeremiah 25:22; 27:3; Ezekiel 28:21,22; Joel 3:4; 4:4; Zechariah 9:2; Matthew 11:21,22; 15:21; Mark 3:8; 1:24,31; Luke 6:7; 10:13,14. An ancient and wealthy city of Phoenicia, on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea, less than twenty English miles to the north of Tyre. Its Hebrew name, Tsidon , signifies fishing or fishery . Its modern name is Saida . It is situated in the narrow plain between the Lebanon and the sea. From a biblical point of view this city is inferior in interest to its neighbor Tyre; though in early times Sidon was the more influential of the two cities. This view is confirmed by Zidonians being used as the generic name of Phoenicians or Canaanites Joshua 13:6; Judges 18:7. From the time of Solomon to the invasion of Nebuchadnezzar Zidon is not often directly mentioned in the Bible, and it appears to have been subordinate to Tyre. When the people called "Zidonians" are mentioned, it sometimes seems that the Phoenicians of the plain of Zidon are meant I Kings 5:6; 11:1,5,33; 16:31; II Kings 23:13. All that is known are respecting the city is very scanty, amounting to scarcely more than that one of its sources of gain was trade in slaves, in which the inhabitants did not shrink from selling inhabitants of Palestine and that it was governed by kings Jeremiah 25:22; 27:3. During the Persian domination Zidon seems to have attained its highest point of prosperity; and it is recorded that, toward the close of that period, it far excelled all other Phoenician cities in wealth and importance. Its prosperity was suddenly cut short by an unsuccessful revolt against Persia, which ended in the destruction of the town, B.C. 351. Its king, Tennes had proved a traitor and betrayed the city to Ochus, king of the Persians; the Persian troops were admitted within the gates, and occupied the city walls. The Zidonians, before the arrival of Ochus, had burnt their vessels to prevent any one's leaving the town; and when they saw themselves surrounded by the Persian troops, they adopted the desperate resolution of shutting themselves up with their families, and setting fire each man to his own house. Forty thousand persons are said to have perished in the flames. Zidon however, gradually recovered from the blow, and became again a flourishing town. It is about fifty miles distant from Nazareth, and is the most northern city which is mentioned in connection with Christ's journeys. (The town Saida still shows signs of its former wealth, and its houses are better constructed and more solid than those of Tyre, many of them being built of stone; but it is a poor, miserable place, without trade or manufactures worthy of the name. The city that once divided with Tyre the empire of the seas is now almost without a vessel. Silk and fruit are its staple products. Its population is estimated at 10,000,7000 of whom are Moslems, and the rest Catholics, Maronites and Protestants. McClintock and Strong's Cyclopaedia. There is a flourishing Protestant mission here. ED.)”.

Heth=If we were to go by just the name and the Strong’s number,H2845we would find that every mention of Heth and his descendants12 verses with 14 matches: Genesis 23:3,5,7,10,16,18,20; 25:10; 27:46; and 49:32outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10, I Chronicles 1 are found in the Book of Genesis; most notably, Genesis 23 where we read that Abraham bought that parcel of land called Machpelah from a man named Ephron, who was the son of Zohar, who was a Hittite. Abraham purchasedpaid for with cash money, 400 shekels of silver, even though Ephron and his people tried to convince Abraham that, because they were friends, he could have that parcel of land for freeas a burying place for his wife Sarah who had passed away. This parcel of land is an extremely important parcel of land, even to this very day in February 2017. However,as I opened this paragraph by saying that if we were to just go by the name Heth and the Strong's number associated with itit is for the very specific reason that we must dig deeper in our search of Father's Word; because, as was pointed out to us in Genesis 23:10, Ephron was a HittiteH2850who were, and are, direct descendants of Heth. This too is extremely important and notable for it was and is the Hittitesor at least part of the tribes of peoples known as the palestinians, or muslins,who today have placed a mosque right on top of that same parcel of land which Abraham purchased from them and their forefathers. The name, or title Hittite, or for that matter, the Strong’s number H2850 associated with the name, is found in 45 verses with 46 matches in Father’s Word. In many of the mentions in the Books of Exodus,3:8,17; 23:23,28; 33:2; and 34:11Numbers,13:29and Deuteronomy7:1 and 20:17we read over and over again where Father told our forefathers to utterly destroy them. Sadly, our forefathers failed to comply with Father's command, and they paid the price for it. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H2845, - חֵת, - chêth , pronounced - khayth, and means: From H2865; terror; Cheth, an aboriginal Canaanite: - Heth. Total KJV occurrences: 14., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The forefather of the nation of the Hittites. In the genealogical tables of Genesis 10:15 and I Chronicles 1:13. Heth is a son of Canaan Genesis 24:3,4; 28:1,2.”.

I Chronicles 1:14 The Jebusite (yeb-oo-see') also, and the Amorite (in the sense of publicity, that is, prominence; thus a mountaineer; or, dwellers on the summits, mountaineers) (em-o-ree'), and the Girgashite (dwelling on a clayey soil) (ghir-gaw-shee’),   —>    The Jebusite=There is very much history\information concerning “The Jebusite,” and the Strong’s word associated with it; Hebrew word number: H2983. The name, title, or word Jebusite is mentioned 14 times in Father's Word, 12 of which are outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1; however, the Strong’s word associated with it is mentioned in 39 verses with 41 matches. The Jebusite was the founder of Jebus; however, after our forefathers inhabited the land, they renamed it: Jerusalem. The Citadel was afterward Zion, which was South of Moriah II Samuel 5:6-9, we can compare this with Ezekiel 16:3,45 which explains the connection of the Jebusite here, with the Amorite and the Hittite (Heth) of v1:15 below. Now from the Strong’s Concordance: we find that it is Hebrew word number: H2983, - יבוּסי, - yebûsı̂y, pronounced - yeb-oo-see', and means: Patrial from H2982; a Jebusite or inhabitant of Jebus: - Jebusite(-s). and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The Jebusites, were descended from the third son of Canaan Genesis 10:16; I Chronicles 1:14. The actual people first appear in the invaluable report of the spies Numbers 13:29. When Jabin organized his rising against Joshua, the Jebusites joined him Joshua 11:3. "Jebus, which is Jerusalem," lost its king in the slaughter of Beth-horon Joshua 10:1,5,26, with which we can compare with Joshua 12:10. Was sacked and burned by the men of Judah Judges 1:21, and its citadel finally scaled and occupied by David II Samuel 5:6. After this they emerge from the darkness but once, in the person of Araunah the Jebusite, "Araunah the king," who appears before us in true kingly dignity in his well-known transaction with David II Samuel 24:23; I Chronicles 21:24,25.”.

The Amorite(s)=Like the Jebusite, there is very much history\information in Father's Word concerning the Amorite; far too much to completely go into here in this Chapter\Paragraph; so, I briefly touch on the reason Father wants the Amorite(s) destroyed. Researching the name, title, word in the Strong’s Concordance, we find that there are 14 verses and 14 matches for the for the word Amorite, 72 verses and 73 matches for the word Amorites, and 86 verses and 87 matches for the Strong’s Hebrew word number: H567, with only 2 of those verses\matches in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1. The Amorites are first mentioned only a scant 4 Chapters after we are introduced to them, and in our first meeting, as we read in Genesis 14; that, Abram wasas Father had told him in Genesis 12:1-7living in the “plain of Mamre the Amotite,” which was in Hebron, which was in Canaan. At this point of our introduction to the Amorite, we find that Abram was confederate withhad befriended3 Amorites, one whom had named the land he was living in, one named Eschol (brother to Mamre), and their brother Aner. Abram had to leave his home in Mamre for a short time because of a famine; but, returned to his home as soon as the famine was over. Shortly after his return several kings had gathered together in order to fight against and smite the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, the Zuzims in Ham, the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim, and the Horites which were in their mount Seir, unto Elparan, which is by the wilderness. During this raid, these kings spoiled the land, taking much goods and people, including Abram's nephew Lot who was living in Sodom at this time. When Abram heard that Lot was captive, he gathered himself, his 300 servants, which actually included those Amorites and their men, and went and killed all those who had captured Lot. Afterwards the king of Sodom came to Abram thanking him and offering him the goods; but, wanted to take the people for himself. Abram told the king of Sodom that he would not take any goods; but, instead return with those who had came with him and his nephew and his family. In the very next Chapter, Genesis 15, Father tells Abram that his descendants will inherit the land to where He had moved Abram; but, first, they had go to into captivity for those 400 years. Why? Because He wanted to Judge Egypt for their unrighteousness and, as Father told Abram: Genesis 15 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet full.”   —>   What was the iniquity of the Amorite? What is it that they were doing? They was messing with, and mating with, the fallen angels which had come back after the flood of Noah's time which we can read of in Genesis 6. This mating produced hybrid offspring - the "mighty men" or the gibbor - the giants. The same as Goliath and Og to name two, but there were many more - Goliath's brother had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot. For more references and reading on these fallen angels and their hybrid offspring, follow the links: Companion Bible Appendix 23 - "The sons of God", and Companion Bible Appendix 25 - "The nephilim of Genesis 6". These Amorites were of the Adamic seedline the seedline through which Father Himself would be born as His Son Emmanuel God with us Jesus Christ. Therefore, He was not about to let this mixing continue for too long, just long enough for Abram's descendants to grow in number and strength, so that He could bring them back to utterly destroy these people and the hybrid offspring. Sadly, most people have no knowledge why Father would tell the Israelites to utterly destroy these people man, woman and child but they accept the fact that He said to do so. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H567, - אמרי, - 'ĕmôrı̂y, pronounced - em-o-ree', and means: Probably a patronymic from an unused name derived from H559, in the sense of publicity, that is, prominence; thus a mountaineer; an Emorite, one of the Canaanitish tribes: - Amorite., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “One of the chief nations who possessed the land of Canaan before its conquest by the Israelites. As dwelling on the elevated portions of the country, they are contrasted with the Canaanites, who were the dwellers in the lowlands; and the two thus formed the main broad divisions of the Holy Land Numbers 13:29, and see 14:7; Deuteronomy 1:7,20 "Mountain of the Amorites;" 1:44; Joshua 5:1; 10:6; 11:3. They first occupied the barren heights west of the Dead Sea, at the place called afterwards Engedi. From this point they stretched west to Hebron. At the date of the invasion of the country, Sihon, their then king, had taken the rich pasture land south of the Jabbok. This rich tract, bounded by the Jabbok on the north, the Arnon on the south, the Jordan on the west and "the wilderness" on the east Judges 11:21,22, was, perhaps in the most special sense the "land of the Amorites" Numbers 21:31; Joshua 12:2,3; 13:10; Judges 11:21,22, but their possessions are distinctly stated to have extended to the very foot of Hermon Deuteronomy 3:8; 4:48, embracing "Gilead and all Bashan" Deuteronomy 3:10, with the Jordan valley on the east of the river Deuteronomy 4:49. After the conquest of Canaan nothing of importance is heard of the Amorites in the Bible.”.

The Girgasite=Or as we read in I Chronicles 1: Girgashite. Girgasite (without the letter “h” after the letter “s”) is used once, Girgashite (with the letter “h” after the letter “s”) is also used once and Girgashites is used 5 times in Father's Word, and we find that in the Strong’s Concordance the Hebrew word number H1622 is only used 7 times; thus, we find that they are forever tied with the brothers, the “seven nations mightier than thee” of Deuteronomy 7:1. Seven is what Father names there; however, there were a few left off His list, now don't get me wrong as; I AM NOT correcting Father, for, He IS YHVH, NOT I; but, there are five others who are named in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1; namely, those listed in the next 2 verses, i.e., the Arkite, the Sinite, the Arvadite, the Zemardite, and the Hamathite. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H1622, - גִּרְגָּשִׁי, - girgâshı̂y, pronounced - ghir-gaw-shee', and means: Patrial from an unused name (of uncertain derivation); a Girgashite, one of the native tribes of Canaan: - Girgashite, Girgasite. Total KJV occurrences: 7., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The, one of the nations who were in possession of Canaan east of the Sea of Galilee before the entrance thither of the children of Israel Genesis 10:16; 15:21; 7:1.”.

I Chronicles 1:15 And the Hivite (a villager; or, villagers) (khiv-vee'), and the Arkite (a tush) (ar-kee’), and the Sinite (see-nee’),   —>   The Hivites=When we research the word(s) Hivite, Hivites, and the Strong’s word number associated with it: H2340, we find first that these peoples, or maybe their father, tried to associated this one's name with being the “giver of life;” as, when we trace the Strong’s number back toward it's Prime, we discover that, that is what the name means “Causative from H2332; lifegiver; Chavvah (or Eve), the first woman: - Eve.”. There are 9 verses and 9 matches for the word Hivite, 16 verses and 16 matches for the word Hivites, and 25 verses and matches for the Strong’s word number H2340. With this many verses and matches, obviously, there is much history\information in Father's Word concerning these Hivite(s); far too much to completely go into here in this Chapter\Paragraph; so, I'll briefly touch on the reasons Father wants the Hivite(s) destroyed: the first mention of the descendants of The Hivite can be found in Genesis 34 where we read that one of them had raped Dinah, the daughter of Jacob and Leah. Now, the rape of someone by one person does not bring punishment upon a whole people; so, that is not the reason Father wanted our forefathers to utterly destroy The Hivites; so, it must be for another reason. The next mention of the descendants of The Hivite can be found when we read in Genesis 36 that Esau had taken two wives: one named Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and the other, named Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite. Now, this was Esau, yes he was the son of Isaac and Rebekah and they were not pleased with his decision; but, that still doesn't warrant the destruction of an entire people; so, it must be for another reason. The Hivite(s) is mentioned several times in the beginning of the Book of Exodus: Exodus 3:8,17; 13:5; and then we come to Exodus 23 where we read: Exodus 23:20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.   —>   What angel is Father going to send to Moses and our forefathers? His Angel, Himself manifest in order that Moses and all He desires to be seen by can see Him. This is the same as when Father went through Egypt on the night of the Exodus and executed His Judgment upon all the firstborn who were not covered by the lamb's blood. The next several verses will also bear this out. This promise by Father is a Covenant Promise by Father to His People, and it is just as good today as it was during the time of the Exodus. Father is promising each of us an angel to go before us to keep us in the way of His Word. He will bring us into the place which He has prepared for you and I to be in. Remember, when this was written, the children of Israel were at the foot of Mount Sinai, and Father is going to send this angel to them ion order to bring them into this place in the Promised Land which He has prepared for our forefathers. [23:21] Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for My name is in him.   —>   This Angel was none other than Father Himself, for He was there with them, speaking to them, and making His presence felt by all. Father lead them by that pillar of fire by night, and in the cloud by day to protect our forefathers. Father YHVH manifest as His Angel was there to guide and direct His children. Don't forget, Father is in a different dimension than we are in, and your soul has to be dead in order to be able to enter into that dimension. [23:22] But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.   —>   Here is another Promise by Father: IF we obey His voice, i.e., His Commandments, His Judgments, His Laws, His Ordinances and His Statutes; then, He will be with us and our adversaries and enemies will be His adversaries and enemies. [23:23] For Mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.   —>   These were the sixlater seven, and in reality even several more as; missing are The Arkites, The Arvadites, The Girgashites, The Hamathites, The Sinites, and The Zemaritesnations who Father wanted utterly destroyed because of their obeying satan, serving other false gods, and for mating with the fallen angels. Notice also in this verse that, The Hivites do not have the “and” before their name like the others do? [23:24] Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images.   —>   So, once Father had gone before our forefathers and utterly destroyed these abominal peoples\nations; then, our forefathers were to go in and destroy all their false gods, i.e., their statues and sacred pillars which they had carved in order to bow down before them. Our next encounter\mention with\of the Hivite(s) is where Joshua and our forefathers really got themselves into trouble when they interacted with them as can be read in Joshua 9, for it was the Hittites who came to Joshua and the elders of our forefathers and convinced them that they had traveled for many miles in order to be able to join onto our forefathers so that they could serve Father YHVH; however, it was discovered 3 days later that they had lied as to who they were, they were part of the tribes of the Canaanites whom the Israelites were to utterly destroy because they were mating with the fallen angels. Sadly, since Joshua and the elders had made a covenant with them, they then cold not destroy them for fear they would anger Father; so, they made them hewers of wood and drawers of water for both the people and even more sadly the Altar of Father YHVH. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word Number: H2340, - חוּי, - chivvı̂y, pronounced - khiv-vee', and means: Perhaps from H2333; a villager; a Chivvite, one of the aboriginal tribes of Palestine: - Hivite., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The, descendantsthe six in orderof Canaan the son of Ham Genesis 10:17; I Chronicles 1:15. We first encounter the actual people of the Hivites at the time of Jacob's return to Canaan Genesis 34:2. We next meet with the Hivites during the conquest of Canaan Joshua 9:7; 11:19. The main body of the Hivites were at this time living in the northern confines of western Palestine-- "under Hermon, in the land of Mizpeh Joshua 11:3," "in Mount Lebanon, from Mount Baal Hermon to the entering in of Hamath"Judges 3:3, compare with II Samuel 24:7.”.

Other than being recorded in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, there is nothing else of significance recorded in Father's Word of the next two names\peoples\tribes in this verse: The Arkites and The Sinites.

Arkite=First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew number: H6208, - עַרְקִי, - ‛arqı̂y, pronounced - ar-kee', and means: Patrial from an unused name meaning a tush; an Arkite or inhabitant of Erek: - Arkite. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “From Arka, one of the families of the Canaanites Genesis 10:17; I Chronicles 1:16, and from the context evidently located in the north of Phoenicia. The site which now bears the name of 'Arka lies on the coast, 2 to 2 1/2 hours from the shore, about 12 miles north of Tripoli and 5 south of the Nahr el-Kebir.”.

Sinite=First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H5513, - סִינִי, - sı̂ynı̂y, pronounced - see-nee', and means: From an otherwise unknown name of a man; a Sinite, or descendant of one of the sons of Canaan: - Sinite. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “A tribe of Canaanites Genesis 10:17; I Chronicles 1:15, whose position is to be sought for in the northern part of the Lebanon district.”.

I Chronicles 1:16 And the Arvadite (a refuge for the roving; or, wandering) (ar-vaw-dee’), and the Zemarite (tsem-aw-ree'), and the Hamathite (kham-aw-thee').   —>   Other than being recorded in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, there is nothing else of significance recorded in Father's Word of the next three names\peoples\tribes in this verse: The Arvadite(s), The Zemarite(s) or The Hamathite(s).

Arvadite=First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew number: H721, - אַרְוָדִי, - 'arvâdı̂y, pronounced - ar-vaw-dee', and means: Partial from H719; an Arvadite or citizen of Arvad: - Arvadite. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Ezekiel 27:8,11 The island of Ruad , which lies off Tortosa (Tartus), two or three miles from the Phoenician coast. In agreement with this is the mention of "the Arvadite, in Genesis 10:18 and I Chronicles 1:16 As a son of Canaan, with Zidon, Hamath another northern localities.”.

Zemarite=First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H6786, - צְמָרִי, - tsemârı̂y, pronounced - tsem-aw-ree', and means: Patrial from an unused name of a place in Palestine; a Tsemarite or branch of the Canaanites: - Zemarite. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “One of the Hamite tribes who in the genealogical table of Genesis 10:18 and I Chronicles 1:16 are represented as "sons of Canaan." Nothing is certainly known of this ancient tribe. The old interpreters place them at Emessa, the modern Hums.”.

Hamathite=First from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H2577, - חֲמָתִי, - chămâthı̂y, pronounced - kham-aw-thee', and means: Partial from H2574; a Chamathite or native of Chamath: - Hamathite. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “One of the families descended from Canaan, named last in the list Genesis 10:18; I Chronicles 1:16.”.

This ended the evil, vile, ungodly sons of Japheth and Ham; and, beginning with the next verse we read of the sons of Shem; but, before we move onto the next verses, let's first do a recap and review of the beginning of the Chapter: Father opened the Chapter by Providing us with the Keys to the Kingdom, i.e., the “Key of David.” It is this Key which opens doors which no man can shut, and shuts doors which no man can open. In other words, it is only Father Who can open our eyes to the Biblical Truths in His Word. No man, not this one, or any other man, has the ability to open your eyes to Father's truths. So, how and what was that Key of David? The Chapter Opened with one word: “Adam.” Oh sure, the first verse contained another 2 words; or, more precisely, names; but, we'll concentrate on the first Word or Name: “Adam” to begin with. Pay attention because, genealogies are very important to Father, if He lists them in His Word, it is for a reason.

Adam=Adam was not the name of the first human man which Father created in this Age of Flesh man. The name of the first man will never be known to us as, in reality, he and his name are insignificant. You may consider that to be a dismissive statement; however, it is not. It is a factual statement. I say this because every soul created by Father is a soul which He created, and as we read in Revelation 4:11, he created all things for His pleasure. So, with that knowledge in mind, I say that the first man created is insignificant because: (1) The first man created in this Flesh Age was not in the seedline to Father being born as His only begotten son Jesus Christ, and as such, he is therefore not mentioned unless he comes in contact with those who are of the seedline; and (2) We don't know when Father created all the Races on the sixth Day, in other words, whether (a) He Created them all at the same time, or (b) If He created more than one male and female of each race at the same time. I could go on and on, but, that takes us away from our Study. However, I do encourage you to think and Pray to Father on this.

With those thoughts in mind, let's now continue thinking and talking about Adam and his role as being the first human male in the seedline to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Father ELOHIM Formed Adameth-ha-Adam, the man Adamand placed him in the Garden of Eden in order to be a “husbandman,” a “tiller of the soil,” and a “seed planter.” What did\does this mean? It means that Adam was the first remnant in the flesh, he is the very first man to have the Truth in Father's Word, and it was his responsibility to pass that knowledge onto his offspring, in order that the Truth be known and passed on to this day in 2017. That is called sowing of the seed, and Jesus Himself taught us about this in Matthew 13:1-9. His disciples didn't understand the Parable He spake; so, He had to explain it to them, and He did so in private, of which we can also read in verses Matthew 13:10-23. Being a sower of seed also means that he was to sow the seed, i.e., sperma Strong’s Hebrew word number H2233, and Strong’s Greek word number G4690. So, in other words, Adam was to sow the good seed of Matthew 13:24, which Jesus explained in Matthew 13:25-43. Adam did indeed sow that good seed, first to Abel; however, he is not listed in the genealogical listings of this Chapter because he had not yet produced any progeny before his half brother Cain slew him. So, Adam again lay with Eve and sired Seth and as Seth grew, Adam passed the Truth onto him to pass down to us living today, Seth then fathered Enosh and passed the knowledge to him, who engendered Cainan, who begat Mahalaleel, who sired Jared, who fathered Enoch who we read not only engendered Methuselah and passed the Truth onto him; but, also was preaching that the fallen angels were upon the earth and were mating with flesh women. Father was so pleased with Enoch's teaching this, that, He translated him, and took him Home to Him. Methuselah sired Noah and passed Father's Truth onto him, and at this juncture we then saw a fundamental change from only learning of the firstborn, and began learning of several of the offspring of Noah's sons and their sons. Noah had three sons: Japheth, Ham and Shem. Noah's two eldest sons, Japheth and Ham, and their offspring would turn from honoring, serving and worshiping Father, while beginning with our next verse, we will learn that Shem and sadly only one of his sons stayed true and harkened unto, reverenced, and worshiped Father.

Japheth's sons were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras; and then we learned of only two of his sons sons, Gomer and Javan: Gomer begat Ashchenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah; and Javan sired Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. Whereas Ham begat Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan; and we learned of Cush, Mizraim and Canaan's sons. Cush sired Seba, Havilah, Sabta, Raamah, Sabtecha, and Nimrod. Of these sons we learned of the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan; the sons of Mizraim: Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, Pathrusim, Casluhim, (of whom came the Philistines,) and Caphthorim; and then of the sons of Canaan: Zidon his firstborn, Heth, The Jebusite, the Amorite, the Girgashite, the Hivite, the Arkite, the Sinite, the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite, all of which were vile, ungodly, heathen, or as Father calls them in Genesis 10:5: Genesis 10:5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations..

1:17-23 The other sons of Shem.

I Chronicles 1:17 The sons of Shem; Elam (hidden, that is, distant; or, eternity) (o-lawm’), and Asshur (in the sense of successful) (ash-shoor’), and Arphaxad (stronghold of the Chaldees) (ar-pak-shad’), and Lud (strife) (lood), and Aram (highland; or, high) (arawm’), and Uz (consultation; or, wooded) (oots), and Hul (a circle; or, circle) (khool) and Gether (fear) (gheh’-ther), and Meshech (drawing out) (meh’-shek).   —>   Shem and his offspring come last as, their “Generations” not only fill and occupy the remainder of the Book of the Chronicles; but, the entire Word of Godall the prophets, and the two Nations are centered around the “Generations” of Shem. You see, it is through Shem’s seed, that, the Promises of Blessing that the world shall receive. Shem's “Generations” are also very important because, it is through his seed (posterity) that the Promised Christ child would come. Luke 3:31-38 traces the blood line of Jesus from Adam through Shem, and on down to David. Then we see the New Testament opens with “the book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” Matthew 1:1 Each name in the entire “Generations” comes through Shemhowever, when Shem is mentioned with his brothers Japheth and Ham, though he is the youngest, he is mentioned first. Also, though Shem is the youngest; like Jacob, who was also the younger of the two, and his son Joseph, they received the Blessing.

Something else to note concerning this verse is, that, though the names Uz, Hul, Gether, and Meshech are shown as being Shem’s sons; in reality, they are Aram’s sons; Shem’s grandsons; for, we read in Genesis 10, the following: Genesis 10:22 The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram. [10:23] And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash..

Elam=Dr. Bullinger notes in his Companion notes to this verse that: “Elam is the mountainous district E. of Babylonia.”. There are 27 verses with 28 matches for the name Elam and it's Strong’s Hebrew word number: H5867; of which the 25 verses and 26 matches respectively, are outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1. Our first enounter\mention of them is when we are introduced to Chedorlaomer the king of Elama descendant of Shem's son Elamwho was united with several other kings. They all went and fought against and smote the Rephaims which were in Ashteroth Karnaim,the rephaims are the nephilim, i.e., the fallen angels, and their offspring: the giants, and they were living in the land which they named ashteroh of the double horns, in other words they were serving baal; or, satan, which should come as no surprise to anyone since they were the fallen angelsand the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim, and the Horites in their mount Seir,these zuzims, with their brethren the emims and the horites were all fellow giants living in territories surrounding each other, did you notice, some of them were living with Noah's son, Ham's descendants?unto Elparan, which is by the wilderness, and afterwards they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh, and there they smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazezontamar. Anyway, the king of Elam and his company defeated the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah and the giants and all those who were practicing the perverted filth that our country today in 2017 espouse we should be as these kings. Though the Chedorlaomer and Elam's descendants did at this point fight against perversion, they really were no better, as they too were serving perversion. Our next larger mention of them is after the fall and then return to Jerusalem of which we can read of in the Books of Ezra and Nehemiah, when they had hidden themselves in with those of the House of Judah; Father knew who they were and, during the last encounter\mention of them which we find in the Book of Jeremiah, we see what Father's says He will do to them: Jeremiah 49:34 The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying,   —>   This prophesy is against Elam and takes place during the reign of the last king of the House of Judah: Tsid-kee-yaw'-hoo (Zedekiah). For us living today, it is prophesy for the end of this Age of flesh man. [49:35] “Thus saith the LORD of hosts; ‘Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might.   —>   Break the bow=Who is coming at the end of this Age with that false bowG5115, - τόξον, - toxon, pronounced - tox'-on, and means: From the base of G5088; a bow (apparently as the simplest fabric): - bow.satan is, in his role of pretend-to-be-christ: antichrist. [49:36] And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come.   —>   These outcasts of Elam are satan’s children: the kenites and there is something far more important we need to know, and that is where they are hidden, they are mixed in with Father’s righteous Children, trying to “hide in plain sight” so to speak. The four winds are the four spirits, and they control the end of this Earth Age. The documentation for this is in Revelation 7:1-3. It was time for the end of the world Age, when the angel of God said, “stop, don't allow the four winds to come which will end this earth Age; not until we have sealed the servants of our Father in their foreheads.” In other words, don't end this age until Father’s Word is sealed in the minds of His Elect. Once the sealing is completed, these four winds and four angels of the four corners of the earth will begin. This same Spirit that has to do with consummation of this Earth Age, and He is found in both Revelation 7, and Daniel 7. Those spirits will drive all the kenites exactly to where Father wants them to be. When you see this coming to pass where every nation is moving to get rid of those kenite bankers, industrialist, merchants, and traders that have taken advantage of them, we will be very close to the time of Christ's coming. They will move to be near where their father Satan is ruling over this world, and that location is in Jerusalem. That is why we are to keep our eye on Jerusalem. Another place the four winds are mentioned is in Ezekiel 37, where Ezekiel is prophesying against the valley of dead dry bones, where the spirit of those winds, the Holy Spirit has breathed into them, and flesh came over their body, and they came alive (Spiritually). Father pointed out in that chapter that the two houses, the House of Israel and the House of Judah, our forefathers are separate, and will not become one until after the sounding of the seventh trumpet, and the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. [49:37] For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even My fierce anger, saith the LORD; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them:   —>   Seek their life=This should read, “seek their soul,” for in the manuscripts it is “Neh’-fesh,” and means the “soul.” The kenites are the tares that Jesus spoke of in His parable of Matthew 13. They will not be gathered and burned until after the Millennium age. If any of them select to serve the True Christ, then they are no longer a kenite, but a son of the Living God, because ELOHIM is the Father of us all. It is what they believe that marks them whether they are of Father; or, of satan. Matthew 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.   —>   As Jesus already told us in verse 13:30 above to leave the tares in the field until harvest time, that is how it will be at the end of His millennium reign at which time the Great White Throne Judgment will then take place and all those whose names are not written in the Book of Life will then be cast into the lake of fire as is written in Revelation 20:11-15. Matthew 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;   —>   When does it say this gathering will take place? "out of His Kingdom" which means that they will be changed into their incurruptible bodies and given the chance before the great white throne judgment to repent but, if they do not, then they will be gathered at the end of the millenium age (Christ's Kingdom) which can be read about in Revelation 20. [49:38] And I will set My throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the LORD.   —>   Father is saying that He is going to set his throne right there in Elam. This has a double meaning; as, Megiddo means the “gathering place of the crowd,” and, that crowd is where ever Father’s and our adversary: satan and all his children are. We know that the center of that crowd will be gathered at “Father's Holy Mountain,” as is recorded in II Thessalonians 2:4, and that is where satan will plant his tabernacle. The other record of this is in Daniel 11:45 which reads: Daniel 11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.   —>   For he shall be smitten by Father Himself as; this is where Father's throne is going to be. It is where it has always been and always will be. That is also why satan wants to set up his throne there, and plant it on the tabernacles of his palace. That throne of Father’s is also The Throne of Judgment, and His Judgment is set for Elam. The grave won’t receive satan as; he was never born in the flesh; therefore, he will be cast into the Lake of Fire. The importance of this verse in Jeremiah is that it documents the gathering place where satan will set up his throne, and where the one world government rule will finally come from. It is the gathering place of the kenites from all over the world, that have no allegiance to any land or border, but to their father satan. And his palace will be established on Father's glorious Holy Mountain in Jerusalem. [49:39] But it shall come to pass in the latter days, that I will bring again the captivity of Elam, saith the LORD.’ ”   —>   This truly shows the love of our Father as; He is telling us exactly when we can expect this to come to pass: “in the latter days,” or put in laymen terms, at the end of this Age when our Lord returns for His Second Advent. When Jesus returns and begins His 1,000 year Millennial reign, satan's children the kenites, will have the opportunity to reject their Father for Father ELOHIM and live with Him in Eternity. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H5867, - עֵילָם, or עוֹלָם , - ‛êylâm, or ‛ôlâm, pronounced - ay-lawm', or o-lawm', and means: Probably from H5956; hidden, that is, distant; Elam, a son of Shem, and his descendants, with their country; also of six Israelites: - Elam. Total KJV occurrences: 28., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “This seems to have been originally the name of a man, the son of Shem Genesis 10:22; I Chronicles 1:17. Commonly, however, it is used as the appellation of a country Genesis 14:1,9; Isaiah 11:11; 21:2. The Elam of Scripture appears to be the province lying south of Assyria and east of Persia proper, to which Herodotus gives the name of Cissia (iii. 91, v. 49, etc.), and which is termed Susis or Susiana by the geographers. Its capital was Susa. This country was originally people by descendants of Shem. By the time of Abraham a very important power had been built up in the same region. It is plain that at this early time the predominant power in lower Mesopotamia was Elam, which for a while held the place possessed earlier by Babylon, Genesis 10:10 and later by either Babylon or Assyria.”.

Asshur=We find that there are 8 verses and matches for the word “Asshur;” 2 verses and matches for the word “Assur;” and 138 verses and matches for the Strong’s number H804, of which, all but two are outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10, and I Chronicles 1. The reason there are so many, and the reason they are outside the genealogical listings is because, Asshur’s descendants are, and are called, the Assyrians. Yes, that same nation which were Father's punishers of our forefathers, you know, the ones who had taken them captive for their turning their backs on Father, after they had for so many years honored, served and worshiped all the other nation's false gods, including ashtoreth, baal, and molech. Yes, there is much history and interaction between our forefathers who Father led out of Egypt, and the descendants of Asshur; far too much to list here; but, know that at the end of this Age, Father will have His revenge on them. Never forget, it is “the assyrian,” who is the type for antichrist, i.e., satan in his role of the pretend-to-be-christ. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H804, - אַשּׁוּר, or אַשֻּׁר , - 'ashshûr, or 'ashshûr, pronounced - ash-shoor', or ash-shoor', and means: Apparently from H833 (in the sense of successful); Ashshur, the second son of Shem; also his descendants and the country occupied by them (that is, Assyria), its region and its empire: - Asshur, Assur, Assyria, Assyrians. See H838. Total KJV occurrences: 151., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read “Second son of Shem Genesis 10:22, also the Hebrew form for Assyria. [ASSYRIA].”.

Arphaxad=There are only a total of ten verses and matches for the name\title\word “Apphaxad,” nine in the Old Testament, and 1 in the New TestamentLuke 3:36and 9 verses and matches for the Strong’s Hebrew word H775 associated with it in Father's Word. Every use in the Old Testament is in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10, 11, and I Chronicles 1. We read in Genesis 11:10 that, Shem was 98 when he was on the Ark during the flood, and then 2 years after the flood had ended, when he was 100 years old, he begat Arphaxad. Arphaxad was 35 years old when he begat Salah,as read in Genesis 11:12Shelah,as read in our next verse here in I Chronicles 1:18or, Sala, as read in Luke 3:35. Father's Word does not record anything else of significance taking place in Arphaxad's life, except to say that after begetting Shelah, he lived another 403 years begetting other sons and daughters, and at the age of 433, he returned Home to Father. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew number: H775, - אַרְפַּכְשַׁד, - 'arpakshad, pronounced - ar-pak-shad', and means: Probably of foreign origin; Arpakshad, a son of Noah (that should read Shem); also the region settled by him: - Arphaxad. Total KJV occurrences: 9., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read “The son of Shem and ancestor of Eber Genesis 10:22,24; 11:10.”.

Lud=There are only 4 verses and matches for the name\title\word “Lud,” 2 are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, 1 is in Isaiah 66:19, and the other is in Ezekiel 27:10. There is 1 more listing for the Strong’s Hebrew word number associated with the name\title\word, Hebrew word number H3865, and it is found in Ezekiel 30:5, and is identified “Lydia,” which are probably Lud’s descendants; I say probably because, Father's Word doesn't even record that he had any sons and\or daughters, nor how long he lived. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H3865, - לוּד, - lûd, pronounced - lood, and means: Probably of foreign derivation; Lud, the name of two nations: - Lud, Lydia. Total KJV occurrences: 5., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read “The fourth name in the list of the children of Shem Genesis 10:22, compare with I Chronicles 1:17. Supposed to have been the ancestor of the Lydians.”.

Aram=There are a total of 10 verses and matches for the name\title\word “Aram,” 3 are of Shem’s son Aram, and are found in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, presumably, the only other 2 mentions can be found in Numbers 23:7 and I Chronicles 2:23, neither of which bode well for Shem’s son. The other mentions of the name\title\word “Aram” are of Nahor’s grandson, even in the New Testament, in both the Gospel of Matthew, and the Gospel of Luke, in the genealogical listings of Matthew 1:3,4 and Luke 3:33. Let's now look at the Strong’s Hebrew word number for the name Aram, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H758, and there are a total of 117 verses with 132 matches, all but, 4 are outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, you'll also notice when you look this word up that, it is almost exclusively “Syria;” that’s right brethren, Shem’s son Aram’s descendants are the Syrian’s which our forefathers so ofter encountered and fought against. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H758, - אֲרָם, - 'ărâm, pronounced - arawm', and means: From the same as H759; the highland; Aram or Syria, and its inhabitants; also the name of a son of Shem, a grandson of Nahor, and of an Israelite: - Aram, Mesopotamia, Syria, Syrians. Total KJV occurrences: 132., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read “The son of Shem Genesis 10:22.”.

Uz=There are 7 verses and matches for the name\title\word “Uz,” of which 2 are of Arphaxad’s son Uz and are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1; all the others are of either of Esau’s descendant; or, Nahor’s son (H)Uz Genesis 22:21. There are 8 verses and matches for the Strong’s Hebrew word associated with Uz: H5780, and like the name\title\word, most are of others and are outside the genealogical listings. We never learn in Father's word as; it isn't recorded if Uz had any children or how long he lived. We read in the first Verse, of the First Chapter, of the Book of Job, that: Job 1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job...   —>   This land that Job was living in was not named by Arphaxad’s son Uz. Dr. Bullinger suggests in his companion notes to the first Verse that: “Abraham hears that his brother Nahor has eight sons, and among them two named Uz and Buz, and Kemuel after the father of Aram. Uz gives his name to the land.”. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H5780, - עוּץ, - ‛ûts, pronounced - oots, and means: Apparently from H5779; consultation; Uts, a son of Aram, also a Seirite, and the regions settled by them: - Uz. Total KJV occurrences: 8., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “A son of Aram Genesis 10:23; I Chronicles 1:17 end consequently a grandson of Shem.”.

Hul=There is nothing recorded of Hul outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, and as such, we don't know how many children he had, if any, or how long he lived. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H2343, - חוּל, - chûl, pronounced - khool, and means: From H2342; a circle; Chul, a son of Aram; also the region settled by him: - Hul. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The second son of Aram, and grandson of Shem Genesis 23; I Chronicles 1:17. The strongest evidence is in favor of the district about the roots of Lebanon.”.

Gether=Like his brother Hul, there is nothing recorded of Gether outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1, therefore, we don't know how many children he had, if any, or how long he lived. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H1666, - גֶּתֶר, - gether, pronounced - gheh'-ther, and means: Of uncertain derivation; Gether, a son of Aram, and the region settled by him: - Gether. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The third in order of the sons of Aram Genesis 10:23; I Chronicles 1:17. No satisfactory trace of the people sprung from this stock has been found.”.

Meshech=Neither the Strong’s Concordance, nor the Smith’s Bible Dictionary make any mention of Aram’s son Meshech, they both only mention the Meshech descended from Aram’s uncle Japeth; therefore, we have nothing definitive on him, even the Easton’s Bible Dictionary only mentions Japeth’s son Mechech and not Aram’s. However, going back and researching in Genesis 10, we find that Arphaxad’s youngest son was named “Mash,” which we can find in the Strong’s Concordance, and note it is Hebrew word number: H4851, - מַשׁ, - mash, pronounced - mash, and means: Of foreign derivation; Mash, a son of Aram, and the people descendant from him: - Mash. Total KJV occurrences: 1, and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary where we read: “Drawn out. One of the sons of Aram Genesis 10:23. In 1 Chronicles 1:17 the name appears as Meshech. The name Mash is probably represented by the Mons Masius of classical writers, a range which forms the northern boundary of Mesopotamia, between the Tigris and Euphrates.”.

Beginning with the next verse, we again pick up the seedline to our Father being born in the flesh as His Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ. We ought to be aware that certain errors have crept in either by accident by the King James 1611 Translators; or, maybe, purposefully by satan’s offspring: the kenites. We’ll find that Luke 3:35,36 bears this out, because; if you’ll notice, in the next verse: I Chronicles 1:18 Arphaxad begat Shelah, of course this is in the Hebrew; whereas the Gospel of Luke records in the Greek; but, Luke 3:35 ends with; “... which was the son of Heber, which was the son of Sala,;” then it starts in v3:36, “ Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Sem, which was the son of Noe.There is no Cainan between the name of Arphaxad and Sala (Shelah). Remember that this is given, showing that the lineage of Jesus Christ was pure, spotless and unblemished. Jesus was the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the those that would believe and by faith come under the blood of Christ for the forgiveness of their sins.

I Chronicles 1:18 And Arphaxad begat Shelah (sprout) (sheh’-lakh), and Shelah begat Eber (the region beyond) (ay’-ber).   —>   Like as we saw with Arphaxad’s grandfather Shem, all the, as Dr. Bullinger calls them, the “collateral,” in other words, all the descendants which did not lead to Father being born in the flesh, once they were all mentioned; then, the seedline picked back up to continue to a further point down in the lineage.

Salah=Or as we read in Genesis 10:24: Salah, and in I Chronicles 1:18: shelah; but, in the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, we find it is spelled “Sala.” Like his father Arphaxad, Shelah was 30 when he begat his son Eber who would continue the seedline. Shelah was 30 when he begat Eber, he then sired more sons and daughters, and lived another 403 years returning Home to Father at the age of 433. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H7974, - שֶׁלַח, - shelach, pronounced - sheh'-lakh, and means: The same as H7973; Shelach, a postdiluvian patriarch: - Salah, Shelah. Compare with: H7975. Total KJV occurrences: 9., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read “The son of Arphaxad, and father of Eber Genesis 10:24;11:18-24; Luke 3:35.”.

Eber=Whence the name “Hebrews,” of Genesis 14:13=Meaning beyond, in other words, the people coming from and beyond the “flood,” i.e., the Euphrates to Canaan Joshua 24:2,3,14,15. There are 13 verses and matches for the name\title\word “Eber,” with only 3 being outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10; 11; and I Chronicles 1. Two of those verses are of different men named Eber, one is in I Chronicles 8:12; and the other is in Nehemiah 12:20. The third verse outside the genealogical listings is Numbers 24:24, where Father was speaking through Balaam and prophesying against our forefathers, the Hebrews as; Father knew they would turn their backs on Him and He was going to have to punish them for it. Researching the Strong’s Hebrew word number associated with the name\title\word, Hebrew word number: H5677, we find that there are two other verses and matches for the Strong’s Hebrew word number, and they both associate with men named Heber. These two Heber are not to be confused with the Heber of Strong’s Hebrew word number: H2268, as they also are of different lineage. We read in Genesis 10:25 and our next verse here in I Chronicles 1, v1:19, that Eber had two sons: Peleg and Joktan, we also read in Genesis 11:16 that Eber was 34 years old when he begat his first son Peleg through whom the seedline will continue. Eber lives after he begat Peleg 430 years begetting other sons and daughters, he died and returned Home to Father at the age of 464. Nothing else of significance is recorded in Father's Word concerning him. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H5677, - עֵבֶר, - ‛êber, pronounced - ay'-ber, and means: The same as H5676; Eber, the name of two patriarchs and four Israelites: - Eber, Heber. Total KJV occurrences: 15., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Son of Salah, and great-grandson of Shem Genesis 10:14; I Chronicles 1:19, [For confusion between Eber and Heber see HEBER].”.

I Chronicles 1:19 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of the one was Peleg (earthquake; or, division, part) (peh’-leg); because in his days the earth was divided: and his brother's name was Joktan (he will be made little; or small) (yok-yawn’).   —>   In his days was the earth divided=Divided in Judgment. We can compare this verse with Genesis 10:25 and Genesis 10:32, where the word “divided” is in the Strong’s, Hebrew word number: H6504, or “pārad,” meaning: disruption, or divided in Judgment. Father’s division in Genesis 10:25 included Zion. Man’ “disruption” included Babylon Genesis 11:2,9.

Peleg=Disruption or division. Peleg’s “Generations” are recorded in Genesis 11:10-27, and here in I Chronicles 1, his lineage picks up in I Chronicles 1:25. Dr, Bullinger notes in his companion notes to Genesis 11:16 that, “Peleg=Born (Genesis 10:25) 14 years before vGenesis 11:9, meaning that Peleg was born 14 years before Father scattered all the fools who tried to create their own salvation when they built the tower of Babel. There are seven verses and matches for both the name\title\word and the Strong’s Hebrew word associated with it, Strong’s Hebrew word number: H6389, all are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10; Genesis 11; and I Chronicles 1. We read in Genesis 11:18-19, that Peleg was 30 years old when he begat his son Reu, the son through which the seedline would continue, he then lived another 209 years begetting sons and daughters, nothing else of significance is recorded of him in Father’s Word, and he thus returned Home to Father at the age of 239. We do know this concerning Peleg and or his descendants though: he and or they broke from the rest of the family unit, and set up divisions for inheritance. We today divide our lands into small units from the sections of 640 acres, down to small units of land called the lot. The purpose of division is to show ownership of the land, and or the purpose of inheritance; is to be passed on from father to son, and on to future generations. Inheritance is important to Christians, for even in the Millennium age, Ezekiel points out in Ezekiel 40-48 that all Israel will have an inheritance in the Millennium, and the inheritance of Father’s Elect will be as joint heirs and reign with Jesus Christ Himself. What separates Father’s People from the heathen Communist, Socialist and similar forms of government is that those forms of government desire to strip all inheritance from the individual, and place it in the hands of the controlling ruling authorities. People then become little more than cattle for the government. They turn into serfs on the lands of the elite. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H6389, - פֶּלֶג, - peleg, pronounced - peh'-leg, and means: The same as H6388; earthquake; Peleg, a son of Shem: - Peleg. Total KJV occurrences: 7., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Son of Eber and brother of Joktan Genesis 10:25; 11:16; I Chronicles 1:19. The only incident connected with his history is the statement that "in his days was the earth divided." an event embodied in the meaning of his name "division." The reference is to a division of the family of Eber himself, the younger branch of which (the Joktanids) migrated into southern Arabia, while the elder remained in Mesopotamia.”.

Joktan=There are only 6 verses and matches in all of Father’s Word for the name\title\word “Joktan” and it's associated Strong’s Hebrew word, Hebrew word number: H3355, all of the uses are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1. Father’s Word does not record how old Joktan was when he begat any of his children, nor does It give us any other clues as to how long he lived; so, we don't know anything of significance concerning him, not his life style,except to look at what his descendants becamenot even at what age he returned Home to Father. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H3355, - יָקְטָן, - yoqṭân, pronounced - yok-tawn', and means: From H6994; he will be made little; Joktan, (I emphatically disagree with this next statement) an Arabian patriarch: - Joktan. Total KJV occurrences: 6., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Son of Eber Genesis 10:25; I Chronicles 1:19, and the father of the Joktanite Arabs Genesis 10:30.”.

I Chronicles 1:20 And Joktan begat Almodad (measure) (al-mo-dawd’), and Sheleph (extract; or, a drawing forth) (sheh’-lef), and Hazarmaveth (village of death; or, court of death) (khats-ar-maw’-veth), and Jerah (a lunation, that is, month; or, the moon) (yeh’-rakh),   —>   We now begin the lineage of Joktan, he had 13 sonsthe number 13 in Biblical Numberics denotes rebellion, apostasy, defection, dis-integration, revolution, &c. The first occurrence fixes this Genesis 14:4; and the second confirms it Genesis 17:25. It, and its multiples, are seen in all numbers, and in the Gematria of all names and passages that are associated with rebellion, See also Dr. Bullinger’sNumber in Scripture” for further explanation of the number 13”that Fathers Word records, they are as follows: Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, Ebal, Abimael, Sheba, Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab.

Almodad=There are only 2 verses and matches in all of Father’s Word for the name\title\word “Almodad” and it's associated Strong’s Hebrew word, Hebrew word number: H486, all of the uses are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1. Father’s Word does not record how old Almodad was when he begat any of his children, nor does It give us any other clues as to how long he lived; so, we don't know anything of significance concerning him, not his life style, not even at what age he returned Home to Father. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H486, - אַלְמוֹדָד, - 'almôdâd, pronounced - al-mo-dawd', and means: Probably of foreign derivation; Almodad, a son of Joktan: - Almodad. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The first in order of the descendants of Joktan Genesis 10:26; I Chronicles 1:20.”.

Father’s Word does not record how old Hazarmaveth was when he begat any of his children, nor does It give us any other clues as to how long he lived; so, we don't know anything of significance concerning him, not his life style, not even at what age he returned Home to Father. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H2700, - חֲצַרְמָוֶת, - chătsarmâveth, pronounced - khats-ar-maw'-veth, and means: From H2691 and H4194; village of death; Chatsarmaveth, a place in Arabia: - Hazarmaveth.

The capital is Satham, a very ancient city, and its chief ports are Mirbat, Zafari and Kisheem, from whence a great trade was carried on in ancient times with India and Africa.”.

Jerah=Like his three older brothers Hazarmaveth, Sheleph, and Almodad, there are only 2 verses and matches in all of Father’s Word for the name\title\word “Jerah” and it's associated Strong’s Hebrew word, Hebrew word number: H3392, all of the uses are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1. Father’s Word does not record how old Jerah was when he begat any of his children, nor does It give us any other clues as to how long he lived; so, we don't know anything of significance concerning him, not his life style, not even at what age he returned Home to Father. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H3392, - יֶרַח, - yerach, pronounced - yeh'-rakh, and means: The same as H3391; Jerach, an Arabian patriarch: - Jerah. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The fourth in order of the sons of Joktan Genesis 10:26; I Chronicles 1:20 and the progenitor of a tribe of southern Arabia.”.

I Chronicles 1:21 Hadoram (noble honor) (had-o-rawm’) also, and Uzal (separate) (oo-zawl’), and Diklah (palm grove) (dik-law’),   —>   Hadoram=There are three men named Hadoram in Father’s Word: Joktan’s son here in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1; a heathen king named Tou, king of Hamath (that should make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end) I Chronicles 18:10; and one who was over the tribute during the days of Solomon’s son, Rehoboam’s reign over the House of Judah II Chronicles 10:18. As such, as we saw, there are 4 verses and matches in all of Father’s Word for the name\title\word “Hadoram” and it's associated Strong’s Hebrew word, Hebrew word number: H1913, Father’s Word does not record how old Hadoram was when he begat any of his children, nor does It give us any other clues as to how long he lived; so, we don't know anything of significance concerning him, not his life style, not even at what age he returned Home to Father.

Uzal=Like most of his older brothers, there are only 2 verses and matches in all of Father’s Word for the name\title\word “Uzal” and it's associated Strong’s Hebrew word, Hebrew word number: H187, all of the uses are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1. Father’s Word does not record how old Uzal was when he begat any of his children, nor does It give us any other clues as to how long he lived; so, we don't know anything of significance concerning him, not his life style, not even at what age he returned Home to Father. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H187, - אוּזָל, - 'ûzâl, pronounced - oo-zawl', and means: Of uncertain derivation; Uzal, a son of Joktan: - Uzal. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The sixth son of Joktan Genesis 10:27; I Chronicles 1:21, whose settlements are clearly traced in the ancient name of San'a , the capital city of the Yemen (a district of Arabia), which was originally Awzal. From its position in the centre of the best portion of that kingdom it must always have been an important city. (San'a is situated about 150 miles from Aden and 100 miles from the coast of the Red Sea. It is one of the most imposing cities of Arabia -ED.).”.

Diklah=Like his older brothers Uzal, Hazarmaveth, Sheleph, and Almodad, there are only 2 verses and matches in all of Father’s Word for the name\title\word “Diklah” and it's associated Strong’s Hebrew word, Hebrew word number: H1853, all of the uses are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1. Father’s Word does not record how old Diklah was when he begat any of his children, nor does It give us any other clues as to how long he lived; so, we don't know anything of significance concerning him, not his life style, not even at what age he returned Home to Father. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H1853, - דִּקְלָה, - diqlâh, pronounced - dik-law', and means: Of foreign origin; Diklah, a region of Arabia: - Diklah. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Genesis 10:27; I Chronicles 1:21 A son of Joktan, whose settlements, in common with those of the other sons of Joktan, must be looked for in Arabia. It is thought that Diklah is a part of Arabia containing many palm trees.”.

I Chronicles 1:22 And Ebal (bald; bare; or, stripped bare) (o-bawl’), and Abimael (father of mael; and, father of mael) (ab-ee-maw-ale’), and Sheba (an oath, seven) (sheb-aw’),   —>   Joktan's lineage continues.

Obal=Or as we read here in I Chronicles 1:22 Ebal (H5858). Here again brethren, we need to beware because, certain errors have crept in, whether it was by accident by the King James 1611 Translators; or, maybe, purposefully by satan’s offspring: the kenites, I am unsure. But, Ebal as spelled here and even its translation in the Strong’s is incorrect as; when we read Genesis 10:28, we find that this son of Joktan is named “Obal,” and the Strong’s Hebrew word number associated with it there is H5745. Obal of Genesis 28 is only mentioned once in Father’s Word, this Ebal (H5858) is mentioned in 8 verses with 8 matches. In 6 of the verses we find that it is a mountain; not a person, yes, in the other 2 verses here in I Chronicles 1:22, and the other down below in verse 1:40 it is a man’s name; but, I believe, in both these cases it is a mis-translation. Anyway, Father’s Word does not record how old Obal was when he begat any of his children, nor does It give us any other clues as to how long he lived; so, we don't know anything of significance concerning him, not his life style, not even at what age he returned Home to Father. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H5745, - עוֹבָל, - ‛ôbâl, pronounced - o-bawl', and means: Of foreign derivation; Obal, a son of Joktan: - Obal. Total KJV occurrences: 1., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Son of Joktan, and, like the rest of family, apparently the founder of an Arab tribe Genesis 10:28. In I Chronicles 1:22 the name is written EBAL.”.

Abimael=Like just about all his older brothers before him, there are only 2 verses and matches in all of Father’s Word for the name\title\word “Abimael” and it's associated Strong’s Hebrew word, Hebrew word number: H39, both of the uses are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10 and I Chronicles 1. Father’s Word does not record how old Abimael was when he begat any of his children, or if he even begat any, nor does It give us any other clues as to how long he lived; so, we don't know anything of significance concerning him, not his life style, not even at what age he returned Home to Father. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H39, - אֲבִימָאֵל, - 'ăbı̂ymâ'êl, pronounced - ab-ee-maw-ale', and means: From H1 and an elsewhere unused (probably foreign) word; father of Mael (apparently some Arab tribe); Abimael, a son of Joktan: - Abimael. Total KJV occurrences: 2., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “A descendant of Joktan Genesis 10:28; I Chronicles 1:22 and probably the progenitor of an Arab tribe (Mali).”.

Sheba=Outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10:7; 10:28; 25:3; I Chronicles 1:9; I Chronicles 1:22; I Chronicles 1:32; there are 17 other mentions of Sheba in Father's Word, most are of the land\territory spelled Sheba, and we find that the people of Sheba are called Sebeans in Job 1:15. Now from the Strong&rsquo’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H7614, - שְׁבָא, - shebâ', pronounced - sheb-aw', and means: Of foreign origin; Sheba, the name of three early progenitors of tribes and of an Ethiopian district: - Sheba, Sabeans. Total KJV occurrences: 23., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Heb. id. A son of Joktan Genesis 10:28; I Chronicles 1:22, probably the founder of the Sabeans.”.

I Chronicles 1:23 And Ophir (abundance) (o-feer’), and Havilah (circular; or, circle) (khav-ee-law’), and Jobab (howler; or, a desert) (yo-bawb’). All these were the sons of Joktan.   —>   These were the three youngest sons of Joktan.

Ophir=There are 12 verses and 12 matches for the name\title\word Ophir, and 12 verses with 13 matches for it's associated Strong’s Hebrew word number: H211. Only 2 of the uses are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10; I Chronicles 1, the other 10 verses and 11 matches are of the territory named after Joktan's son Ophir. Ophir (Smith’s description) was the name of a land or city somewhere to the South or Southeast of Palestine for which Solomon's ships along with Phoenician vessels set out from Ezion-geber at the head of the Gulf of Aqabah, returning with great stores of gold, precious stones and "almug"-wood. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: 211, - אוֹפִיר, אֹפִיר , or אוֹפִר , - 'ôphı̂yr, 'ôphı̂yr, or 'ôphir, pronounced - o-feer', o-feer',or o-feer', and means: Of uncertain derivation; Ophir, the name of a son of Joktan, and of a gold region in the East: - Ophir. Total KJV occurrences: 13., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The eleventh in order of the sons of Joktan Genesis 10:29; I Chronicles 1:23.”.

Havilah=There are seven mentions of Havilah, Strong's word number H2341, four in the genealogical listings of Genesis 10; I Chronicles 1;two as a son of cush, and two as a son of Joktanand then, 3 other times as a land, or territory, the first being in Genesis 2 where we read: Genesis 2:10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. [2:11] The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; [2:12] And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.   —>   Havialh is known as the “region of sand,” and as we see by these verses, is connected with Eden, the Garden of Father. It is also mentioned in Genesis 25:18, and I Samuel 15:7. Shur would be the E. end of Havilah. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H2341, - חֲוִילָה, - chăvı̂ylâh, pronounced - khav-ee-law', and means: Probably from H2342; circular; Chavilah, the name of two or three eastern regions; also perhaps of two men: - Havilah. Total KJV occurrences: 7., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “A son of Joktan Genesis 10:29; I Chronicles 1:23.”.

Jobab=There are 9 verses and matches for the name\title\word Jobab and its associated Strong’s Hebrew word number: H3103. Outside the genealogical listings of Genesis 10; and I Chronicles 1, every other mention of a Jobab is of a descendant of Esau. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H3103, - יוֹבָב, - yôbâb, pronounced - yo-bawb', and means: From H2980; howler; Jobab, the name of two Israelites and of three foreigners: - Jobab. Total KJV occurrences: 9., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The last in order of the sons of Joktan Genesis 10:29; I Chronicles 1:23.”.

Beginning with the next verse, we return to Shem and his lineage.

1:24-28 Direct. Shem to Abraham
   (1996-1836)

I Chronicles 1:24 Shem, Arphaxad, Shelah,   —>   We covered Shem, his son Arphaxad, and his son Shelah above; so, I don't see a need in covering them again here.

I Chronicles 1:25 Eber, Peleg, Reu (friend; and, friend) (reh-oo’),   —>   Again, Eber and Peleg were covered above; so, I don't see a need in covering them again here; so, we'll move on to Peleg’s son Reu.

Reu=There are 5 verses and matches for the name\title\word Reu and its associated Strong’s Hebrew word number: H7466, all the uses are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 11 and I Chronicles 1. Reu was the seedbearer to the line of Jesus, he was 32 years old when he sired and passed on the seed to his son Serug, he then lived another 207 years begetting more sons and daughters. Nothing else of significance is recorded in Father’s Word concerning his history; and as such, we don't know how many of each or how many total children he had, and at the age of 239 he returned Home to Father. In the Gospel of Luke, his Greek name is Ragau (Luke 3:35). Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H7466, - רְעוּ, - re‛û, pronounced - reh-oo', and means: For H7471 in the sense of H7453; friend; Reu, a postdiluvian patriarch: - Reu. Total KJV occurrences: 5., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Son of Peleg, in the line of Abraham's ancestors Genesis 11:18,19,20,21; I Chronicles 1:25.”.

I Chronicles 1:26 Serug (tendril; or, branch) (ser-oog’), Nahor (snorer; or, snorting) (naw-khore’), Terah (station) (teh’-rakh),   —>   Serug=Saruch is the Greek spelling\pronunciation of his name, found in Luke 3:35. There are 5 verses and matches for the name\title\word serug and its associated Strong’s Hebrew word number: H8286, all the uses are in the genealogical listings of Genesis 11 and I Chronicles 1. Serug was 30 years old when he fathered his son Nahor, he then lived another 200 years begetting more sons and daughters. Nothing else of significance is recorded in Father’s Word concerning his history; and as such, we don't know how many of each or how many total children he had, and at the age of 230 he returned Home to Father. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H8286, - שְׂרוּג, - śerûg, pronounced - ser-oog', and means: From H8276; tendril; Serug, a postdiluvian patriarch: - Serug. Total KJV occurrences: 5., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Son of Reu and great grandfather of Abraham. His age is given in the Hebrew Bible as 230 years Genesis 11:20-23; I Chronicles 1:26.”.

Nahor=Nachor in Joshua 24:2, and Greek, in Luke 3:35. There are 16 verses with 17 matches for the name\title\word Nahor, and 17 verses with 18 matches for the Strong’s Hebrew word H5152, the reason for the difference is because of the spelling in Joshua 24:2. There are two men in the genealogical listings of Genesis 11; but, only the first 6 mentions are of Serug’s son Nahor, his grandson, Terah’s son, is not in the genealogical line. Terah’s son Nahor is mentioned in all the other instances\uses. Nahor was Serug's son who passed the seedline on to Terah when he was 29 years old, he then lived another 119 years begetting more sons and daughters, we don't know how many of each or how many total. Nothing else of significance happened in his life, and at the age of 148 he returned Home to Father. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H5152, - נָחוֹר, - nâchôr, pronounced - naw-khore', and means: From the same as H5170; snorer; Nachor, the name of the grandfather and a brother of Abraham: - Nahor. Total KJV occurrences: 18., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The name of two persons in the family of Abraham. (1) His grandfather; the son of Serug and father of Terah Genesis 11:22-25; I Chronicles 1:26.”.

Terah=Or Thara in the Greek, in Luke 3:34. There are 9 verses with 11 matches for the name\title\word Terah, and 11 verses with 13 matches for the Strong’s Hebrew word H8646. The reason for the difference is because, in two of the verses\matches the name\title\word is spelled Tarah, with an “a,” and those 2 verses\matches are in Numbers 33:27-28, which was a stop in the wilderness for our forefathers when Father was leading them up out of their bondage to the Egyptians. Terah was 70 years old when he begatas read in Genesis 11:26Abram, Nahor, and Haran. Abram is the youngest; but, he is mentioned first because, he is the seedline to Jesus; however, as is customary in Hebrew writing, his brothers Nahor and Haran and their offspring will be addressed first. We don't know at what age he or his son Haran were when we read in Genesis 11:28 that Haran died; but, we know from reading Genesis 11:29 that he was old enough to bear children as; his brother Nahor married his daughter his Milcah. Again, we don't know how old he or she were when they married as Father's Word doesn't say; but, she was old enough to bear children as, she birth Lot, Abram's nephew, who Abraham later took with him, and also 2 daughters: Milcah and Iscah. Sometime after Haran died, Terahnow 200 years old, and Abram is 70, we know this because in five years when Abram is 75, after his father Terah dies, he'll leave Charran to come into the future Promised Land: Canaantook his son Abram, Sarai, and Lot and left their native land to settle in Charran, this is verified by Stephen when he is giving his superb accounting of the historical facts in Acts 7:2-4. The total number of Terah’s days were 205, and other than what is chronicled and detailed in Father’s Word and pretty much what I have surmised here, nothing else of significance transpired in Terah’s life, and at the age of 205, he returned Home to Father. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H8646, - תֶּרַח, - terach, pronounced - teh'-rakh, and means: Of uncertain derivation; Terach, the father of Abraham; also a place in the Desert: - Tarah, Terah. Total KJV occurrences: 13., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The father of Abram, Nahor and Haran, and through them the ancestor of the great families of the Israelites, Ishmaelites, Midianites, Moabites and Ammonites Genesis 11:24-32. The account given of him in the Old Testament narrative is very brief. We learn from it simply that he was an idolater Joshua 24:2, that he dwelt beyond the Euphrates in Ur of the Chaldees Genesis 11:28, and that in the southwesterly migration, which from some unexplained cause he undertook in his old age, he went with his son Abram, his daughter-in-law Sarai, and his grandson Lot, "to go into the land of Canaan, and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there" Genesis 11:31. And finally, "the days of Terah were two hundred and five years; and Terah died in Haran" Genesis 11:32.”.

I Chronicles 1:27 Abram (high father; or, a high father) (ab-rawm’); the same is Abraham (to be populous; father of a multitude; or, father of a multitude) (ab-raw-hawm’).   —>   Obviously there is far too much to write here concerning Abraham; so, suffice it to say that it is through Abram; who, because of his faithfulness to Father, Father changed his name to Abraham, just as He had changed Sarai’s name to Sarah.

I do want to point out something before I go on, I found a good companion note by Dr. Bullinger in his companion notes to Genesis 12:6, it reads as follows: “It is evident from Terah’s and Abraham’s call, Satan knew the line by which “the seed of the woman” (Genesis 3:15) was coming into the world. In Ch. 6 he aimed at the whole human race. Now he aims at Abraham and his land. Here is the second explanation of “after that” in 6:4. He satan pre-occupies the territory ready to dispute the advance. The Cannanite “was then” “being already” there (Cp. 13:7). The progeny of the latter attempt to corrupt the race had to be destroyed by the sword of Israel, as those “in the days of Noah” had been by the flood.”.

Abram=First from the Strong’s Concordance, where we find that it is Hebrew word number: H87, - אַבְרָם, - 'abrâm, pronounced - ab-rawm', and means: Contracted from H48, high father; Abram, the original name of Abraham: - Abram. Total KJV occurrences: 61., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The earlier name of Abraham.”.

Abraham=First from the Strong’s Concordance, where we find that it is Hebrew word number: H85, - אַבְרָהָם, - 'abrâhâm, pronounced - ab-raw-hawm', and means: Contracted from H1 and an unused root (probably meaning to be populous); father of a multitude; Abraham, the later name of Abram: - Abraham. Total KJV occurrences: 175., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, the description of Abraham in the Smith’s is way too long to post here; so, I’ll just post the link to it instead: Abraham.

From this point on in this Chapter, I'll only go into detail and explain the names if they are in the seedline to Jesus; or, if there is something of significance which needs to be pointed out and brought to our attention.

I Chronicles 1:28 The sons of Abraham; Isaac (laughter [that is, mockery]; or laughter) (Yits-Khawk’), and Ishmael (God will hear; or, whom YAH hears) (yish-maw-ale').    —>   Abraham had two sons before his wife Sarai, later changed to Sarah by Father, died; his first was with Sarai’s Egyptian handmaiden named Hagar, this son was named Ishmael; and his second, the Promised Son, Isaac, with Sarah. Obviously it was Isaac who was the line by which the seedline to Jesus would continue. Though Isaac is the younger son, he is mentioned first because it is though him that the lineage will continue; but, we’ll read of Ishmael’s offspring first as the chapter and lineage continues.

Isaac=Laughter; or, let him laugh. So named because, when Father visited Abraham and told him that even in his old age he would bear a son, Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and asked Father, “Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?”. Though, by outward appearance, it appeared that Abraham was laughing at the absurdity of his being 100 years old and now going to bear “The Son” to Jesus; however, he was actually laughing with joy at the news of bearing “The Son.” Father YHVH next tells Abraham that He will make His Covenant with Isaac, and that, that Covenant, will be an Everlasting Covenant, and will continue on to his offspring after him. Isaac would be 40 years old when his father Abraham sends his servant, most likely Eleazar of Damascus, to his kindred, i.e., his brother Nahor and his offspring, who were still living in Haran, to get a wife for Isaac. Eleazar went to Haran and found Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel, the son of Nahor, Abraham's brother. Rebekah would bear to Issac two sons: Esau and Jacob. One of which despised his inheritance, and one who obeyed Father and all He commanded, the same though which the line to Jesus would continue. He will be the father of the 12 patriarchs who would become the 12 Tribes known as The House of Israel. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H3327, - יִצְחָק, - yitschâq, pronounced - yits-khawk', and means: From H6711; laughter (that is, mockery); Jitschak (or Isaac), son of Abraham: - Isaac. Compare H3446. Total KJV occurrences: 108., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “The son whom Sarah bore to Abraham, in the hundredth year of his age, at Gerar. In his infancy he became the object of Ishmael's jealousy; and in his youth the victim, in intention, of Abraham's great sacrificial act of faith. When forty years old he married Rebekah his cousin, by whom, when he was sixty, he had two sons, Esau and Jacob. Driven by famine to Gerar, he acquired great wealth by his flocks but was repeatedly dispossessed by the Philistines of the wells which he sunk at convenient stations. After the deceit by which Jacob acquired his father's blessing Isaac sent his son to seek a wife in Padan-aram; and all that we know of him during the last forty-three years of his life in that he saw that GOD, with a large and prosperous family, return to him at Hebron Genesis 36:27. Before he died there, at the age of 180 years. He was buried by his two sons in the cave of Machpelah. In the New Testament reference is made to the offering of Isaac Hebrews 11:17; James 2:21 and to his blessing his sons Hebrews 11:20. In Galatians 4:28-31 he is contrasted with Ishmael. In reference to the offering up of Isaac by Abraham, the primary doctrine taught are those of sacrifice and substitution, as the means appointed by God for taking away sin; and, as co-ordinate with these, the need of the obedience of faith, on the part of man, to receive the benefit Hebrews 11:17. The animal which God provided and Abraham offered was in the whole history of sacrifice the recognized type of "the Lamb of God, that taketh away the sins of the world." Isaac is the type of humanity itself, devoted to death for sin.”.

Ishmael=Ishmael was the older son of Abraham, born to him by an Egyptian woman named Hagar, who was Sarah’s handmaiden. Sarah herself was to this point in her life, unable to bear children as, Father had not yet opened her womb. Anyway, after Abraham lay with Hagar and she became pregnant, she looked on Sarah with contempt; so, Sarah treated her harshly and Hagar fled from Sarah. I'll allow Father's Word to explain what happened next, we can read of it in Genesis 16: Genesis 16:7 And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.   —>   Angel of the LORD=99 Percent of the time we read this Phrase in Father’s Word, it is Father Himself manifest in a manner in which man can see Him and not die. Here He appears to Hagar to let her know that He knows what had transpired between her and Sarah and Abraham, and that He will Bless her, and not allow her to go unrewarded for her part. Father knew exactly where she was and where she was headed. [16:8] And he said, “Hagar, Sarai’s maid, whence camest thou? and whither wilt thou go?” And she said, “ I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai.”   —>   Father wasn't asking Hagar these questions because He didn’s what had transpired; He was asking her because, He wanted her to explain it to Him in her words. Notice she didn’t offer too much information. [16:9] And the angel of the LORD said unto her, “Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.” [16:10] And the angel of the LORD said unto her, “I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.”   —>   Father just Promised Hagar that her that she is pregnant. [16:11] And the angel of the LORD said unto her, “Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction.   —>   Not only is she pregnant; but, she is pregnant with a son and she is to name her son Ishmael “whom YAH hears,” because He had heard her affliction. He also Promised her that her offspring will be as numerous as He’ll make Sarah’s; in other words, “as numerous as the stars of the heavens” and “as the sands in the sea.” It will through Ishmael that some of the Arab nations that are with us to this day in 2017 came from. [16:12] And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.”   —>   History proves that this prophecy is correct, for true even to this day; and, especially in 2017 as we see the sons of Ishmael all throughout the world working against man, law and order, as they try and establish their caliphate. See, the child Ishmael has grown into nations, and with his half brothers, the sons of "Keturah," they have grown into what we call the Arab world today. It is common to see that when they are not fighting outsiders, they are fighting each other. To this day, the conflict between the Arab nations, and the nations of the "promised seed," Isaac, and the Israelites goes on. [16:13] And she called the name of the LORD that spake unto her, Thou GOD seest me: for she said, “Have I also here looked after him that seeth me?”   —>   GOD=GOD as used here in the Hebrew is EL; from Dr. Bullinger’s Appendix 4 in his Companion Bible: “EL is essentially the Almighty, thought the word is never so rendered (see below, "Shaddai"). EL is Elohim in all His strength and power. It is rendered "God" as Elohim is, but El is God the Omnipotent. Elohim is God the Creator putting His omnipotence into operation. Eloah (see below) is God Who wills and orders all, and Who is to be the one object of the worship of His people. El is the God Who knows all (first occ. Gen. 14:18:22) and sees all (Gen. 16:13) and that performeth all things for His people (Ps. 57:2); and in Whom all the Divine attributes are concentrated.”. [16:14] Wherefore the well was called Beer-lahairoi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.   —>   Beer-lahairoi=Because Hagar knew and understood Whom she saw, and knew that she lived to tell about seeing Father as His Angel, she named the well she was by: “Well of the living after seeing.” But, Father’s Word did indeed come to pass exactly as He wrote it, Ishmael was born, and then his offspring were 12 sons who continued to bear sons, and today make up the Arab nations, some of whom fight against each other, and some of whom are trying to take over the world by establishing their caliphate. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H3458, - יִשְׁמָעֵאל, - yishmâ‛ê'l, pronounced - yish-maw-ale', and means: From H8085 and H410; God will hear; Jishmael, the name of Abraham’s oldest son, and of five Israelites: - Ishmael. Total KJV occurrences: 49., and now from the Smith’s Bible Dictionary we find: “The son of Nethaniah; a perfect marvel of craft and villainy, whose treachery forms one of the chief episodes of the history of the period immediately succeeding the first fall of Jerusalem. His exploits are related in Jeremiah 40:7; 41:16 with a short summary. During the siege of the city he had fled across the Jordan where he found a refuge at the court of Baalis. After the departure of the Chaldeans, Ishmael made no secret of his intention to kill the superintendent left by the king of Babylon and usurp his position. Of this Zedaliah was warned in express terms by Johanan and his companions, but notwithstanding entertained Ishmael and his followers at a feast Jeremiah 41:1, during which Ishmael murdered Gedaliah and all his attendants. The same night he killed all Zedaliah's establishment, including some Chaldean soldiers who were there. For two days the massacre remained entirely unknown to the people of the town. On the second day eighty devotees were bringing incense and offerings to the ruins of the temple. At his invitation they turned aside to the residence of the superintendent, and there Ishmael and his band butchered nearly the whole number: ten only escaped by offering a heavy ransom for their lives. This done he descended to the town, surprised and carried off the daughters of King Zedekiah, who had been sent there by Nebuchadnezzar for safety, with their eunuchs and their Chaldean guard Jeremiah 41:10,16, and all the people of the town, and made off with his prisoners to the country of the Ammonites. The news of the massacre had by this time got abroad, and Ishmael was quickly pursued by Johanan and his companions. He was attacked, two of his bravos slain, the whole of the prey recovered; and Ishmael himself with the remaining eight of his people, escaped to the Ammonites.”.

From the days of Jerome: this people had been identified with the Nabathaeans of Greek and Roman history Petra was their capital. (They first settled in the country southeast of Palestine, and wandered gradually in search of pasturage till they came to Kedar, of which Isaiah speaks.

The "land of Midian," the place to which Moses fled after having killed the Egyptian Exodus 2:15,21, or the portion of it specially referred to, was probably the peninsula of Sinai. The influence of the Midianties on the Israelites was clearly most evil, and directly tended to lead them from the injunctions of Moses. The events at Shittim occasioned the injunction to vex Midian and smite them. After a lapse of some years, the Midianites appear again as the enemies of the Israelites, oppressing them for seven years, but are finally defeated with great slaughter by Gideon. [GIDEON ] The Midianites are described as true Arabs, and possessed cattle and flocks and camels as the sand of the seashore for multitude. The spoil taken in the war of both Moses and of Gideon is remarkable Numbers 31:22; Judges 8:21,24-26.

I Chronicles 1:34 And Abraham begat Isaac. The sons of Isaac; Esau (handling, rough (that is, sensibly felt; or, Hairy) (ay-sawv’) and Israel (he will rule as God; or, the prince that prevails with God) (yis-raw-ale') (map).   —>   So, what do we know from Father’s Word concerning Rebekah’s conception, pregnancy, and the birth of her two sons Esau and Israel (Jacob)? Turn with me to Genesis 25: Genesis 25:20 And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram, the sister to Laban the Syrian. [25:21] And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.   —>   Isaac and Rebekah were married for forty years before Father opened her womb, that would make Isaac 60 years old before he had any children. It seems like being barren runs in Adamic family. She must have been getting concerning as, she had left her family with knowledge of: Gen 24:60 And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, “Thou art our sister, be thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess the gate of those which hate them.”   —>   How many did that say? Thousands of millions; and as such, she entered this marriage to Isaac with the vision that her offspring would as numerous as the stars in the sky, and the sands of the sea; and now, here she is twenty years into the marriage and she is still barren. However, just as Father had had the appointed time for Sarah, He also had the appointed time for Rebekah to conceive. [25:22] And the children struggled together within her; and she said, “ If it be so, why am I thus?” And she went to enquire of the LORD.   —>   She finally conceives; and, sometime during her pregnancy she feels a tumult inside her womb and she doesn't understand; so, what does she do? She inquires of Father. Now, remember brethren, we're still in Old Testament times and, supposedly, “women aren't supposed to talk with Father YHVH;” but, what happens when she does? He kindly tells her exactly what is happening inside her womb; that, there are 2 children, twins, and they are struggling with each other as, even inside of her they have enmity(dictionary definition)between each other. [25:23] And the LORD said unto her, “ Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.”   —>   Not only does Father tell her that inside her are twins growing; but, that, yes, they are struggling. Why, because He knows each of these Children, just as He knows each of us and what we did in the Age before we were born into this one; and, as such, He knew that the elder child: Esau, would eventually reject his inheritance; whereas, the younger: Jacob: would Honor, Serve and Worship Him. That, because of such, there would always be enmity between the two, even to this day in 2017. [25:24] And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.   —>   No surprise here, Father already said there were twins. [25:25] And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.   —>   Esau came out with a thick mane of bright red hair. This identification of having bright red hair, and because of what happened when they matured, as explained in Genesis 25:30 which reads: Genesis [25:29] And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint: [25:30] And Esau said to Jacob, “Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint:” therefore was his name called Edom.   —>    Esau got the nick name of "Edom," which means red. Can you identify any nation today which holds the color red dear? Of course it's Russia. So, we will see that throughout Father's Word, Esau will also be called Edom, and his children Edomites. [25:26] And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.   —>   The name Jacob means, “heel catcher,” or "supplanter" in the Hebrew language. Jacob was named after the fact that he was born grabbing a hold of and hanging on to Esau's heel. This fight had started while the boys were still growing in Rebekah's womb, and the fight is going on even to this day. There is no trust of confederacy between our nations, and those nations and people who rely on truth from Russia, have moved so far left that they have gone beyond the communistic bounds of Russia. This is the most difficult problem we have today in America, for they are undermining our nation, and sadly, the Christian People are allowing it to take place, heck we even had a socialist run for president this past elect; and, had not the favored democrat candidate cheat, he might even had to opportunity to face the republican candidate. Ezekiel 38 and 39 tells us how it will all end, i.e., Father raining down hailstones weighing between 110-180 pounds upon Esau as they attempt to attack us, that time is coming shortly brethren; but, again, we need not worry as; that fight is Father’s.

Esau=OK, so what do we know about Esau? Well, we know that he struggled with his brother while in their mother’s womb; we know that Father told Rebekah that, he being the elder, would serve his younger brother; we know from reading Genesis 25:29-30 that he he begged Jacob for that bowl of red pottage, and had we continued reading to the next verse and the end of the Chapter, we would have read the following: Genesis 25:31 And Jacob said, “Sell me this day thy birthright.”   —>   Jacob told his brother that he would not give his brother Esau the red pottage; however, he would sell him the bowl, for the simple fee of his birthright. A steep price indeed, and we’ll read in the next verse how Esau replies. Birthright=The Birthright included: (1) the father’s blessing and supremacy (which will go to Jacob in Genesis 27 and to Judah in Genesis 49:8; I Chronicles 5:1,2) (2) a double portion (which will go to Joseph in Genesis 48; I Chronicles 5:1,2) and (3) the Domestic Priesthood (which after going to the first-born of each family was vested in Levi for the whole Nation Numbers 3:6,12, with which we can compare with Numbers 16:1-3). [25:32] And Esau said, “Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?”   —>   What a load of horse manure, Esau wasn’t about to die; he just flat out didn’t give a hoot about his birthright; the only thing he cared about of it and only at the time of his father’s death, will he give any concern will be his hand-out, looking for something for free. What is not said; but, needs to be supplied is, “...I will sell it,.” Something else we don’t know about here; but, find out in Genesis 26:1 is that, there is already starting to be a famine in the land, which leads to his declaring, “...I am at the point to die...”. Remember, Esau took to hunting whereas, Jacob worked the land, therefore, he could grow his food. [25:33] And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.   —>   This famine was caused by Father YHVH, He purposely limited the game in the area. Why? Because He knew the mind of Esau, and his disrespect for Father’s Birthright Promises which were passed on from generation to generation. Just as Father can cause the flood of Noah's day, so also can He make the game scarce. Remember, it was Father Who said to Rebekah while the two children were still in her womb: “the older shall serve the younger.” Esau didn't care anything about Father in the First Earth Age, and as we’re here, nothing has changed in the Flesh Age. [25:34] Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.   —>   And=Did you notice all the “and(s)” in this verse? They are almost an emphasis marking the deliberateness of the five acts: “bread and pottage;” “eat;” “drink;” “rose up;” “went his way,”, the five act; so, in other words, Esau despised &Father’s Grace,” which is why we read in both Malachi and Romans: Romans 9:11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)   —>   “The children” obviously are Esau and Jacob, and as Paul is telling us, they are still in Rebekah’s womb, not yet born . [9:12] It was said unto her, “The elder shall serve the younger.”   —>   We just read that it was Father Who said this to her. [9:13] As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.   —>   Father hated Esau while he was still in Rebekah’s womb, why? Because, even in the First Earth Age he despised his heritage, he despised being a Child of the Living God. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find that it is Hebrew word number: H6215, - עֵשָׂו, - ‛êśâv, pronounced - ay-sawv', and means: Apparently a form of the passive participle of H6213 in the original sense of handling; rough (that is, sensibly felt); Esav, a son of Isaac, including his posterity: - Esau. Total KJV occurrences: 97., and now from the Easton’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: “Rebekah's first-born twin son Genesis 25:25; I Chronicles 1:34. The name of Edom, "red", was also given to him from his conduct in connection with the red lentil "pottage" for which he sold his birthright (25:30,31). The circumstances connected with his birth foreshadowed the enmity which afterwards subsisted between the twin brothers and the nations they founded Genesis 25:22,23,26. In process of time Jacob, following his natural bent, became a shepherd; while Esau, a "son of the desert," devoted himself to the perilous and toilsome life of a huntsman. On a certain occasion, on returning from the chase, urged by the cravings of hunger, Esau sold his birthright to his brother, Jacob, who thereby obtained the covenant blessing Genesis 27:28, 29, 36; Hebrews 12:16, 17. He afterwards tried to regain what he had so recklessly parted with, but was defeated in his attempts through the stealth of his brother Genesis 27:4,34,38. At the age of forty years, to the great grief of his parents, he married Genesis 26:34, 35 two Canaanitish maidens, Judith, the daughter of Beeri, and Bashemath, the daughter of Elon. When Jacob was sent away to Padan-aram, Esau tried to conciliate his parents Genesis 28:8,9 by marrying his cousin Mahalath, the daughter of Ishmael. This led him to cast in his lot with the Ishmaelite tribes; and driving the Horites out of Mount Seir, he settled in that region. After some thirty years' sojourn in Padan-aram Jacob returned to Canaan, and was reconciled to Esau, who went forth to meet him Genesis 33:4. Twenty years after this, Isaac their father died, when the two brothers met, probably for the last time, beside his grave Genesis 35:29. Esau now permanently left Canaan, and established himself as a powerful and wealthy chief in the land of Edom (q.v.). Long after this, when the descendants of Jacob came out of Egypt, the Edomites remembered the old quarrel between the brothers, and with fierce hatred they warred against Israel.”.

Israel=Jacob, now known as Israel, Honored, Served and Worshiped Father his entire life. Many years after purchasing the Birthright from his brother, their father Isaac feared he was close to death, and therefore, he called Esau to him in order to bestow onto him the Birthright Blessing. Now, Esau knew that he had sold the Birthright to his brother and as such he had no right to it; so, did he tell his father this when Isaac called him unto him? No, he was going to steal it back from his brother. What happened? Rebekah, know of the entire incident and called for Jacob in order to have the Birthright bestowed upon it’s rightful heir. Jacob, knowing he couldn’t fool his father feared what would happen should he and his mother get caught. So, Rebekah devised a plan and made hairy skins for Jacob’ arms; so, that, when Isaac reached for him, he would feel the skins and think that it was Esau. Sure enough, Isaac fell for the ruse and bestowed the Birthright Blessing on Jacob. Esau came later seeking the Blessing; however, Isaac told him that he had already bestowed upon him, Esau then told Isaac that it was not him who he had bestowed teh Blessing upon; but, his younger brother Jacob. Esau cried out begging his father to Bless him also; but, there no such Blessing to come. So, Esau devised a scheme to kill his brother in order to get the Blessing back from him. Rebekah, fearing for her younger son’s life, called him to her and told him to flee and go to her family, where he might hide out until Esau’s anger cooled. Jacob did as his mother bid, and when he had arrived he found some men and their flocks of sheep by a well. He asked them what land he was in, and they replied, “Haran.” After hearing this, he next asked them if they knew his uncle, his mother’s brother, Laban. They replied that they indeed did know Laban, and as they were replying, Laban’s younger daughter Rachel approached with her herd of sheep. Well, Jacob fell in love with his cousin and after living with his uncle and his family for a month, Laban asked him what he cold pay him for the work he had been doing for him. Jacob told his uncle that he wold work for him for seven years if he could have Laban’s younger daughter for his wife. Laban agreed and at the end of the seven years, Jacob asked his uncle for Rachel’s hand in marriage, Laban agreed; but, he deceived Jacob by bringing his elder daughter Leah to him that night, and in the morning, Jacob realized he had been had. Long story short, he worked for another seven years for Leahs younger sister Rachel. In all, he got the 2 sisters and their handmaids, and from the 4 of them he bare the 12 patriarchs which became the 12 Tribes making up the House of Israel. In all, Jacob served, or worked for Laban for 21 years. On Jacob's return from Haran to the land of his father Isaac, as he was stopped for the night one night, Father YHVH'S Angel appeared to him and they wrestled all night until the breaking of day, and when Father’s Angel saw that He could not prevail He touched the hollow of Jacob’s thigh, and his thigh became out of joint. Father then told Jacob to let Him go; but, Jacob would not do so until Father Blessed him. Father next asked Jacob his name, not that He didn’t know; but, because it was time He was going to change it for him, Jacob replied, Jacob and Father told him he would no longer be called Jacob; but, Israel. Now from the Strong’s Concordance, we find it is Hebrew word number: H3478, - יִשְׂרָאֵל, - yiśrâ'êl, pronounced - yis-raw-ale', and means: From H8280 and H410; he will rule as God; Jisrael, a symbolical name of Jacob; also (typically) of his posterity (Easton’s): - Israel. Total KJV occurrences: 2505., and now from a combination of the Smith’s Bible Dictionary and the Easton’s Bible Dictionary, where we read: The name conferred on Jacob, Genesis 32:28, after the great prayer-struggle and his wrestling with the Angel of the LORD, Hosea 12:4, at Peniel, because "as a prince he had power with God and prevailed," Gesenius interprets Israel “soldier of God.” (See JACOB, [Easton’s].) This is the common national name given to Jacob's descendants, the whole People of the twelve tribes are called "Israelites," the "children of Israel" Joshua 3:17; 7:25; Judges 8:27; and Jeremiah 3:21, and the "house of Israel" Exodus 16:31; 40:38. It is used in the narrower sense, excluding Judah in I Samuel 11:8; II Samuel 20:1; I Kings 12:16. This name Israel is sometimes used emphatically for the true Israel Psalms 73:1; Isaiah 45:17; 49:3; John 1:47; Romans 9:6; and 11:26. After the death of Saul the ten tribes arrogated to themselves this name, as if they were the whole nation II Samuel 2:9,10,17,28; 3:10,17; 19:40-43, and the kings of the ten tribes of the northern kingdom were called "kings of Israel," while the kings of the two tribes were called "kings of Judah." After the babylonian captivity, the returned exiles resumed the name Israel as the designation their entire nation. The name Israel is also used to denote lay-men, as distinguished from priests, Levites and other ministers Ezra 6:16; 9:1; 10:25; Nehemiah 11:3 etc..”.
