Most everyone (including myself for many years) automatically assume that after the first seven days of Genesis, the story backtracks to day six to explain in detail the creation of man.  However, I ask you to consider for a moment that the story simply continues instead of backtracking.  Consider that man was created on the sixth day, and another man was formed after the seventh day for a different purpose than the first men. Sound ridiculous?Maybe, but this website hopefully is designed to get the reader to look at theories from a different point-of-view.

 

Genesis 1

 

Going through the "Days" of Genesis remember 2 Peter 3:8.  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day."  In other words, do not take the days of Genesis 1 as a literal 24 hour day. 

 

Genesis 1

 

DAY 1 - 1.  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

 2.  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

 3.  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

 4.  And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

 5.  And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Heaven and Earth were created; this is the first earth and heaven age.  The earth was NOT created void and without form, but became that way.  The word "was" should be translated "became"; reference Strong’s Concordance.  So, God begins to rejuvenate the earth. 

DAY 2 - 6.  And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

 7.  And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

 8.  And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

Earths' atmosphere, oceans, and water table was rejuvenated.  Heaven is the sky. 

DAY 3 - 9.  And God said, Let the waters under the Heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

 10.  And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

 11.  And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

 12.  And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

 13.  And the evening and the morning were the third day.

Water covered the earth, and the water receded.  Plants (including those producing fruits, berries, herbs, etc) were created for the land.   

DAY 4 - 14.  And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

 15.  And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

 16.  And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

 17.  And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

 18.  And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

 19.  And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Unlike the 3rd earth age (Zechariah 14, Revelation 21) the glory of God would not be there for light, so the light would come from the sky for signs and markers of time.  The Universe may have existed for eons, but at this time the light was not reaching the earth due to the destruction from the first earth age.  The atmosphere on the fourth day cleared to allow light to reach the earth.  Earth positioned (tilt, spin, and orbit) into proper alignment.

DAY 5 - 20.  And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

 21.  And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

 22.  And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

 23.  And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Wild animals of oceans, seas, lakes, and air were created. 

DAY 6 - 24.  And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

 25.  And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

 26.  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

 27.  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

 28.  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

 29.  And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

 30.  And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

 31.  And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Wild creatures of land created.  Also, God created man in the likeness of himself and the angels.  Man created on the sixth day is given control over creation up to this point.  God was pleased with his creation.

 

Notice that God created the (wild) animals FIRST, then mankind (men and women) SECOND.  These men were created in the image of God and the angels and God said it was very good.  They were created and walked the earth long before Adam was formed.

Genesis 2

 1.  Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

 2.  And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

 3.  And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

 4.  These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,

 5.  And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

 6.  But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

 7.  And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

 8.  And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

 9.  And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

---

 18.  And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

 19.  And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

 20.  And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

 21.  And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

 22.  And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

 23.  And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

 24.  Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Important:  Notice the order difference from 6th day creation.

1> God formed Adam to Farm

2> Then formed (domestic) animals

3> And then formed Eve. 

Eve is called "the mother of all living" because through her and Adam would come Jesus. 

So are the decedents of Adam any better than man created on the sixth day?  Absolutely NOT; sixth day man was created in the image of God - God said it was good.  Wouldn't it be boring if everyone was alike?  Our Father's creation is beautiful and just the way he wanted it. 

 

 

 

Genealogy of the Palestinians

 

ISHMAEL ("God will hear") Son of Abraham by Sarah's Egyptian handmaid Hagar. Although he and his mother were driven away from Abraham's household when Sara felt despised by her child-bearing handmaid, Abraham was promised by God that his son, Ishmael, would be the founder of a great nation (Genesis 16:1-2, 6; 17:20). (Genesis 17:20). Hagar found an Egyptian wife for Ishmael (Genesis 21:17-21) and he became the father of twelve sons and one named daughter (Genesis 25:12-16; 28:9).

 

1Chronicles 1

29.  These are their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebaioth; then Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,

30.  Mishma, and Dumah, Massa, Hadad, and Tema,

31.  Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. These are the sons of Ishmael.

 

Genealogy of the Kurds

KETURAH ("perfumed") A concubine of Abraham and the mother of six named sons including Midian (I Chronicles 1:32). Elsewhere in the Bible (Genesis 25:1), the King James Version (as well as other translations such as the New International, the Living Bible and the New Revised Standard) list(s) her as "wife." Note, however, that neither in the Old Testament Hebrew nor in the New Testament Greek is there a word for "wife" (in particular) as opposed to "woman" (in general). There is, however, a word for "concubine" (as distinct to "woman" in general) in Old Testament Hebrew, and that is the term used in I Chronicles 1:32 and in Genesis 25:5-6 where mothers of the sons of offspring of Abraham other than Isaac are listed as "concubines." As mother of Midian, she is regarded as an ancestor of the Midianites (who include the Jethro, the father-in-law of Moses). And according to Dr. Ron Marchese of the University of Minnesota Duluth, an expert on the Kurds, some Kurdish tradition/mythology claims her as an ancestor of the Kurds.

1 Chronicles 1

 32.  Now the sons of Keturah, Abraham's concubine: she bare Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah. And the sons of Jokshan; Sheba, and Dedan.

 33.And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Henoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these are the sons of Keturah.

 

Kurds, seminomadic tribes inhabiting the region of Kurdistn in southwestern Asia. Most Kurds are Sunni Muslims (see Sunnites), and many live in small villages. Many Kurds engage in sheep raising and agriculture. Their chief manufacture is finely woven rugs. The Kurds speak Kurdish, a language of the western Iranian branch of the Indo-European languages. In the mid-1990s the Kurd population was estimated at nearly 26 million. Of these, more than half lived in Turkey; the rest lived in Iran, Iraq, Syria, and several of the former republics of the Soviet Union (USSR).

In the 19th century many Kurds began agitating for an independent nation, and since 1925 Kurdish revolts have occurred in Turkey, Iraq, and Iran. In 1991, immediately after the Persian Gulf War, an uprising consisting primarily of Kurds challenged the regime of Iraqi president Saddam Hussein. The Kurdish rebels were easily crushed by the Iraqi government, and more than one million Kurds fled to Turkey, Iran, and the mountainous areas of northern Iraq. Despite the existence of a Kurdish region in northern Iraq protected by the United Nations (UN), the neighboring countries of Iran, Syria, and Turkey support Iraq's territorial claim against Kurdish desires for an autonomous state. In Turkey, Kurdish rebels launched an armed struggle against the Turkish government in 1984. Turkish troops retaliated in the mid-1990s with attacks on Kurdish guerilla strongholds in Iraq.

 

 

Genealogy of the Esau (Edom or Russia)

 

Easton’s Bible Dictionary - E'dom

 

 (1.) The name of Esau (q.v.), Gen. 25:30, "Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage [Heb. haadom, haadom, i.e., 'the red pottage, the red pottage'] ......Therefore was his name called Edom", i.e., Red.

 

(2.) Idumea (Isa. 34:5, 6; Ezek. 35:15). "The field of Edom" (Gen. 32:3), "the land of Edom" (Gen. 36:16), was mountainous (Obad. 8, 9, 19, 21). It was called the land, or "the mountain of Seir," the rough hills on the east side of the Arabah. It extended from the head of the Gulf of Akabah, the Elanitic gulf, to the foot of the Dead Sea (1 Kings 9:26), and contained, among other cities, the rock-hewn Sela (q.v.), generally known by the Greek name Petra (2 Kings 14:7).

 

It is a wild and rugged region, traversed by fruitful valleys. Its old capital was Bozrah (Isa. 63:1). The early inhabitants of the land were Horites. They were destroyed by the Edomites (Deut. 2:12), between whom and the kings of Israel and Judah there was frequent war (2 Kings 8:20; 2 Chr. 28:17). At the time of the Exodus they churlishly refused permission to the Israelites to pass through their land (Num. 20:14-21), and ever afterwards maintained an attitude of hostility toward them. They were conquered by David (2 Sam. 8:14; comp. 1 Kings 9:26), and afterwards by Amaziah (2 Chr. 25:11, 12). But they regained again their independence, and in later years, during the decline of the Jewish kingdom (2 Kings 16:6; R.V. marg., "Edomites"), made war against Israel. They took part with the Chaldeans when Nebuchadnezzar captured Jerusalem, and afterwards they invaded and held possession of the south of Palestine as far as Hebron.

 

At length, however, Edom fell under the growing Chaldean power (Jer. 27:3, 6). There are many prophecies concerning Edom (Isa. 34:5, 6; Jer. 49:7-18; Ezek. 25:13; 35:1-15; Joel 3:19; Amos 1:11; Obad.; Mal. 1:3, 4) which have been remarkably fulfilled.

 

The Edomites were Semites, closely related in blood and in language to the Israelites. They dispossessed the Horites of Mount Seir; though it is clear, from Gen. 36, that they afterwards intermarried with the conquered population. Edomite tribes settled also in the south of Judah, like the Kenizzites (Gen. 36:11), to whom Caleb and Othniel belonged (Josh. 15:17). The southern part of Edom was known as Teman.

 

 

I Chronicles 1

35.  The sons of Esau; Eliphaz, Reuel, and Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah.

36.  The sons of Eliphaz; Teman, and Omar, Zephi, and Gatam, Kenaz, and Timna, and Amalek.

37.  The sons of Reuel; Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah.

38.  And the sons of Seir; Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah, and Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan.

39.  And the sons of Lotan; Hori, and Homam: and Timna was Lotan's sister.

43.  Now these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom before any king reigned over the children of Israel; Bela the son of Beor: and the name of his city was Dinhabah.

44.  And when Bela was dead, Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead.

45.  And when Jobab was dead, Husham of the land of the Temanites reigned in his stead.

46.  And when Husham was dead, Hadad the son of Bedad, which smote Midian in the field of Moab, reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Avith.

47.  And when Hadad was dead, Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead.

48.  And when Samlah was dead, Shaul of Rehoboth by the river reigned in his stead.

53.  Duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar,

54.Duke Magdiel, duke Iram. These are the dukes of Edom.

 

 

Genealogy of Cain (the Tares)

Sons of Cain are called Kenites. They had already attached themselves to the Tribe of Judah, when The Record of The Tribe was listed in 1st. Chronicles 2:55; there, it states that they are Scribes-but it does not say that they are Judaens. The very name Kenite means a Child of Cain. Kenites worked their way into the temple as scribes because the prophets were to lazy to do the menial work. Later, these scribes became as the prophets; by the time Jesus walked the earth they were known as the Pharisees.

 

Cain # 7014 # 7014 qayin: kah'-yin; the same as # 7013 (with a play oupon the affinity to #7069); Kajin, the name of the first child, also of a place in Pal., and of an Oriental Tribe:-Cain, Kenite(-s). # 7013 qayin: kah'-yin; from # 6969 in the orig. sense of fixity; a lance (as striking fast):-spear. # 7069 qanah: kaw-nah'; a prim. root; to erect, i.e. create; by extens. to procure, espec. by purchase (caus. sell); by impl. to own:-attain,buy (-er), teach to keep cattle, get, provoke to jealousy, possess (-or), purchase, recover, redeem, X surely, X verily. # 6969 quwn: koon; a prim. root; to strike a musical note, i.e. chant or wail (at a funeral):-lament, mourning woman.

 

Kenites # 7017 - # 7017 Qeyniy: kay-nee' or # 7017 Qiyniy: (1st. Chron. 2:55)kiy-nee'; patron. from # 7014; a Kenite or member of the tribe of Kajin:-Kenite.

 

Important: Midianites are not Kenites by geneology. There is some confusion about Moses father-in-law, Jethro. Moses father-in-law was not a Kenite by genealogy; he was called a Kenite because he lived in the land among them.

 

JETHRO (REUEL) - A priest of Midian and the father of seven daughters including Zipporah who became a wife of Moses (Exodus 2:16-21; 3:1). Moses tended the flocks of Jethro (forty years according to the New Testament (Acts 7:30); no time of service is specified in the Old Testament).

 

MIDIAN - A son of Abraham by his concubine Ketura (Genesis 25:1-2; I Chronicles 1:32)

 

If there were only Adam, Eve, and Cain (after killing Abel), how could Cain go to the land of Nod to find a wife? Because Cain found a wife from man created on the 6th day. This also explains why he would be concerned about other people slaying him.

 

 

Genesis 4

14. Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.

15. And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.

16. And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

17. And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.

18. And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.

19. And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.

20. And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.

21. And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.

22. And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.

 

Numbers 24

14. And now, behold, I go unto my people: come therefore, and I will advertise thee what this people shall do to thy people in the latter days.

15. And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:

16. He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:

17. I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.

Not that day, but one day the Star out of Jacob (Jesus) shall destroy the Kenites.

18. And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a possession for his enemies; and Israel shall do valiantly.

19. Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and shall destroy him that remaineth of the city.

20. And when he looked on Amalek, he took up his parable, and said, Amalek was the first of the nations; but his latter end shall be that he perish for ever.

Amalek - will Son of Eliphaz and Timna and grandson of Esau (Genesis 36:2)

21. And he looked on the Kenites, and took up his parable, and said, Strong is thy dwellingplace, and thou puttest thy nest in a rock.

Kenites faith in the rock (or Satan), not our Rock (Jesus).

22. Nevertheless the Kenite shall be wasted, until Asshur shall carry thee away captive.

Asshur - The eighth-born of Jacob's 12 sons, and "founder" of one of the "tribes" of Israel, he was the second son of Zilpah, the handmaid of Jacob's wife, Leah (Genesis 30:12-13).

23. And he took up his parable, and said, Alas, who shall live when God doeth this!

24. And ships shall come from the coast of Chittim, and shall afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber, and he also shall perish for ever.

Eber: Son of Salah and father of Joktan and Peleg (Genesis 10:24-25)

Salah: Son of Arphaxahad and father of Eber (Genesis 10:24)

Arphaxahad: One of the five sons of Noah's son Shem (Genesis 10:1,22)

1 Chronicles 2

 55. And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hammath, the father of the house of Rechab.

 

 

2 Kings 10

11. So Jehu slew all that remained of the house of Ahab in Jezreel, and all his great men, and his kinsfolks, and his priests, until he left him none remaining.

12. And he arose and departed, and came to Samaria. And as he was at the shearing house in the way,

13. Jehu met with the brethren of Ahaziah king of Judah, and said, Who are ye? And they answered, We are the brethren of Ahaziah; and we go down to salute the children of the king and the children of the queen.

14. And he said, Take them alive. And they took them alive, and slew them at the pit of the shearing house, even two and forty men; neither left he any of them.

15. And when he was departed thence, he lighted on Jehonadab the son of Rechab coming to meet him: and he saluted him, and said to him, Is thine heart right, as my heart is with thy heart? And Jehonadab answered, It is. If it be, give me thine hand. And he gave him his hand; and he took him up to him into the chariot.

16. And he said, Come with me, and see my zeal for the Lord. So they made him ride in his chariot.

17. And when he came to Samaria, he slew all that remained unto Ahab in Samaria, till he had destroyed him, according to the saying of the Lord, which he spake to Elijah.

18. And Jehu gathered all the people together, and said unto them, Ahab served Baal a little; but Jehu shall serve him much.

19. Now therefore call unto me all the prophets of Baal, all his servants, and all his priests; let none be wanting: for I have a great sacrifice to do to

Baal; whosoever shall be wanting, he shall not live. But Jehu did it in subtlety, to the intent that he might destroy the worshippers of Baal.

20. And Jehu said, Proclaim a solemn assembly for Baal. And they proclaimed it.

21. And Jehu sent through all Israel: and all the worshippers of Baal came, so that there was not a man left that came not. And they came into the house of Baal; and the house of Baal was full from one end to another.

22. And he said unto him that was over the vestry, Bring forth vestments for all the worshippers of Baal. And he brought them forth vestments.

23. And Jehu went, and Jehonadab the son of Rechab, into the house of Baal, and said unto the worshippers of Baal, Search, and look that there be here with you none of the servants of the Lord, but the worshippers of Baal only.

24. And when they went in to offer sacrifices and burnt offerings, Jehu appointed fourscore men without, and said, If any of the men whom I have brought into your hands escape, he that letteth him go, his life shall be for the life of him.

25. And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, that Jehu said to the guard and to the captains, Go in, and slay them; let none come forth. And they smote them with the edge of the sword; and the guard and the captains cast them out, and went to the city of the house of Baal.

26. And they brought forth the images out of the house of Baal, and burned them.

27. And they brake down the image of Baal, and brake down the house of Baal, and made it a draught house unto this day.

28. Thus Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel.

29. Howbeit from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin, Jehu departed not from after them, to wit, the golden calves that were in Bethel, and that were in Dan.

Jehu was good ruler of Israel that used cunning to destroy Baal worship

Jehonadab (same as Jonadab in Jeremiah 35) = Kenite

 

 

 

Nehemiah 3

13. The valley gate repaired Hanun, and the inhabitants of Zanoah; they built it, and set up the doors thereof, the locks thereof, and the bars thereof, and a thousand cubits on the wall unto the dung gate.

14. But the dung gate repaired Malchiah the son of Rechab, the ruler of part of Bethhaccerem; he built it, and set up the doors thereof, the locks thereof, and the bars thereof.

15. But the gate of the fountain repaired Shallun the son of Colhozeh, the ruler of part of Mizpah; he built it, and covered it, and set up the doors thereof, the locks thereof, and the bars thereof, and the wall of the pool of Siloah by the king's garden, and unto the stairs that go down from the city of David.

16. After him repaired Nehemiah the son of Azbuk, the ruler of the half part of Bethzur, unto the place over against the sepulchres of David, and to the pool that was made, and unto the house of the mighty.

---

28. From above the horse gate repaired the priests, every one over against his house.

29. After them repaired Zadok the son of Immer over against his house. After him repaired also Shemaiah the son of Shechaniah, the keeper of the east gate.

31. After him repaired Malchiah the goldsmith's son unto the place of the Nethinims, and of the merchants, over against the gate Miphkad, and to the going up of the corner.

32. And between the going up of the corner unto the sheep gate repaired the goldsmiths and the merchants.

 

 

Jeremiah 35

1. The word which came unto Jeremiah from the Lord in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying,

2. Go unto the house of the Rechabites, and speak unto them, and bring them into the house of the Lord, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to drink.

3. Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habaziniah, and his brethren, and all his sons, and the whole house of the Rechabites;

4. And I brought them into the house of the Lord, into the chamber of the sons of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of God, which was by the chamber of the princes, which was above the chamber of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the keeper of the door:

5. And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full of wine, and cups, and I said unto them, Drink ye wine.

6. But they said, We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son of Rechab our father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye, nor your sons for ever:

7. Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant vineyard, nor have any: but all your days ye shall dwell in tents; that ye may live many days in the land where ye be strangers.

8. Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our father in all that he hath charged us, to drink no wine all our days, we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters;

9. Nor to build houses for us to dwell in: neither have we vineyard, nor field, nor seed:

10. But we have dwelt in tents, and have obeyed, and done according to all that Jonadab our father commanded us.

11. But it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came up into the land, that we said, Come, and let us go to Jerusalem for fear of the army of the Chaldeans, and for fear of the army of the Syrians: so we dwell at Jerusalem.

12. Then came the word of the Lord unto Jeremiah, saying,

13. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Will ye not receive instruction to hearken to my words? saith the Lord.

14. The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons not to drink wine, are performed; for unto this day they drink none, but obey their father's commandment: notwithstanding I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye hearkened not unto me.

15. I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me.

16. Because the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the commandment of their father, which he commanded them; but this people hath not hearkened unto me:

17. Therefore thus saith the Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced against them: because I have spoken unto them, but they have not heard; and I have called unto them, but they have not answered.

18. And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Because ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done according unto all that he hath commanded you:

19. Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me for ever.

It is really shameful for the house of Judah not following Gods commandments while the Kenites obediently follow their fathers commandments at this time.

 

Easton’s Bible Dictionary - Ken'ites

Text: smiths, the name of a tribe inhabiting the desert lying between southern Palestine and the mountains of Sinai. Jethro was of this tribe (Judg. 1:16). He is called a "Midianite" (Num. 10:29), and hence it is concluded that the Midianites and the Kenites were the same tribe. They were wandering smiths, "the gipsies and travelling tinkers of the old Oriental world. They formed an important guild in an age when the art of metallurgy was confined to a few" (Sayce's Races, etc.).

Jethro was called a Kenite due to where he lived; not Genealogy. Jethro was a Midianite by genealogy. Midian was the son of Abraham and Ketura. Midianites are the current day Kurdish tribes in Iraq. The reference above in Easton’s Bible Dictionary is incorrect.

 

They showed kindness to Israel in their journey through the wilderness. They accompanied them in their march as far as Jericho (Judg. 1:16), and then returned to their old haunts among the Amalekites, in the desert to the south of Judah. They sustained afterwards friendly relations with the Israelites when settled in Canaan (Judg. 4:11, 17-21; 1 Sam. 27:10; 30:29). The Rechabites belonged to this tribe (1 Chr. 2:55) and in the days of Jeremiah (35:7-10) are referred to as following their nomad habits.

AMELEK Son of Eliphaz and Timna and grandson of Esau (Genesis 36:2); or current day Russia

 

Saul bade them depart from the Amalekites (1 Sam. 15:6) when, in obedience to the divine commission, he was about to "smite Amalek." And his reason is, "for ye showed kindness to all the children of Israel when they came up out of Egypt." Thus "God is not unrighteous to forget the kindnesses shown to his people; but they shall be remembered another day, at the farthest in the great day, and recompensed in the resurrection of the just" (M. Henry's Commentary). They are mentioned for the last time in Scripture in 1 Sam. 27:10; comp. 30:20.

 

 

Jude 1:

11. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

12. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

13. Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.

14. And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,

1 Chronicles 1:1-28 - 1> Adam 2> Sheth 3> Enosh 4> Kenan, 5> Mahalaleel 6> Jered, 7> Henoch

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.

 

 

Genealogy of Joseph and Jesus

 

Why does "Matthew 1" and "Luke 3" give a different geneaology of Joseph? Are Matthew or Luke wrong; is the bible wrong? Some would use this as an excuse to show the bible is contridicting itself.

71> Melchi (12)

72> Levi (13)

73> Matthat (14)

74> Heli (15)

75> Mary

These are two separate Genealogies. You must remember that Jesus was not Joseph's blood child. One is the "literal" blood line of Jesus (Joseph's Adopted Son) through Mary. The other is the literal blood line of Joseph, which is to say the "legal" blood line of Jesus.

 

In other words, Luke gives Mary & Jesus' bloodline while Matthew gives Josephs' bloodline. Jesus was to be born from Adams' bloodline, and Luke shows the fathers all the way from Heli (Marys' father) to Adam.

17. So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.

18. Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

19. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.

20. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

21. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

22. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

23. Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

24. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

25. And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
