Another chapter in 1 Chronicles, another listing of descendants. This chapter focuses on the descendants of Judah and the descendants of Simeon.
“The men whose names were listed came in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah. They attacked the Hamites in their dwellings and also the Meunites who were there and completely destroyed them, as is evident to this day.” – 1 Chronicles 4:41
Even in a chapter listing descendants, the authors couldn’t resist from including a statement on killing.
“They killed the remaining Amalekites who had escaped, and they have lived there to this day.” – 1 Chronicles 4:43
Woohoo! They lived in the land to this day, residing in the place of those they killed and land they stole. Super moral! 😊
That concludes this chapter of 1 Chronicles. More descendants to come in the next chapter!
Coming Soon: 1 Chronicles – Chapter 5: Reuben
