  Deuteronomy 33:6 Let [the tribe of] Reuben live, and not die out, but let his men be few. The earlier Bible translators could not believe that Moses meant to say of Reuben, “let his men be few,” so they put “not” in it in italics: “let ‘not’ his men be few.” But Reuben had committed a grave offence [Genesis 49:3-4], which canceled his birthright, and God meant exactly what He directed Moses to say, as continuous fulfillment of Continue Reading

Jerusalem: City of Peace – has seen so little peace

Joshua 10:1 Now it came to pass, when Adonizedec king of Jerusalem had heard how Joshua had taken Ai, and had utterly destroyed it; as he had done to Jericho and her king, so he had done to Ai and her king; and how the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel, and were among them. This is the first time the word ‘king’ is found in Scripture in connection with Jerusalem, but it is used 86 times otherwise, with other cities, before Continue Reading
