1/18/2018 Chapters Genesis 19-21

Wow — in these passages so much to consider — the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Abimilek & Sarah, the birth of Isaac.  Once again I would like to focus on an event that eventually caused the entire nation of Israel to suffer.

In Genesis 19:33-38 we see Lot’s daughters sinister plot that resulted in the birth of two sons fathered by their father, Lot.   Verses 37-38 tell us that the eldest daughter’s son became the father of the Moabites and the youngest daughter’s son the father of the Ammonites.  Both nations became bitter enemies & persecutors of Israel.

Just as with Ishmael the sins of the moment by Job’s daughters resulted in future agony and persecution of the nation of Israel.

Let us reflect on our need to remain faithful!
