See note to line That God would will the deceiving of Isaac and the taking of the birthright from Esau has long been troubling to readers of Scripture. While such an interpretation makes Jacob the more capable man for the job and perhaps gives a reason for the deception, it does not answer the question about whether the means to the end is morally right. The word serves a dual function here, especially when read against Genesis First, Jacob raises up the stone as a marker of some kind. After serving Laban for the agreed seven years in exchange for Rachel, Jacob asked for her.
And, like Sarah, she chooses to bear him children through the proxy of one of her maids. She then gives birth to the first daughter in the family, Dinah A separate account of the renaming of Jacob is given at Genesis — To remark that a genealogy hinges jones on Judah might have many interpretations. The poet is probably, first and foremost, referring to the genealogy of Jesus, who descends from Jacob through Judah and Tamar see Matthew —3 and the explanatory note to lines —74, below. This is especially true after Judah was the only independent Israelite kingdom remaining in the Holy Land.
In Genesis the sin of refusing to inseminate a woman is attributed to the brother Onan and given as the reason for God killing him.

The second section has to do with personalities: Abraham, the man of faith; Isaac, the beloved son; Jacob, the chosen and chastened son; and Joseph, his suffering and glory. Although that is a major division, there is another division even more significant. It has to do with time. The first eleven chapters cover a minimum time span of two thousand years—actually, two thousand years plus.
I feel that it is safe to say that they may cover several hundred thousand years. I believe this first section of Genesis can cover any time in the past that you may need to fit into your particular theory, and the chances are that you would come short of it even then.
At least we know the book covers a minimum of two thousand years in the first eleven chapters, but the second section of thirty—nine chapters covers only three hundred and fifty years.
In fact, beginning with Genesis 12 and running all the way through the Old Testament and the New Testament, a total time span of only two thousand years is covered. Therefore, as far as time is concerned, you are halfway through the Bible when you cover the first eleven chapters of Genesis.
This should suggest to your mind and heart that God had some definite purpose in giving this first section to us. Do you think that God is putting the emphasis on this first section or on the rest of the Bible? The first section has to do with the universe and with creation, but the last part deals with man, with nations, and with the person of Jesus Christ. God was more interested in Abraham than He was in the entire created universe.
And, my friend, God is more interested in you and attaches more value to you than He does to the entire physical universe. May I say that the first eleven chapters of Genesis are merely the introduction to the Bible, and we need to look at them in this fashion. This does not mean that we are going to pass over the first eleven chapters. Actually, we will spend quite a bit of time with them. The Book of Genesis is just like the bud of a beautiful rose, and it opens out into the rest of the Bible. The truth here is in germ form.
One of the best divisions which can be made of the Book of Genesis is according to the genealogies—i. McGee, J. Thru the Bible Commentary, Vol. You can not put one little star in motion, You can not shape one single forest leaf, Nor fling a mountain up, nor sink an ocean, Presumptuous pigmy, large with unbelief! You can not bring one dawn of regal splendor, Nor bid the day to shadowy twilight fall, Nor send the pale moon forth with radiance tender, And dare you doubt the One who has done all?
I asked for strength that I might achieve— He made me weak that I might obey. I asked for health that I might do greater things— I was given grace that I might do better things. I asked for riches that I might be happy— I was given poverty that I might be wise. I asked for power that I might have the praise of men— I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God. I asked for all things that I might enjoy life— I was given life that I might enjoy all things.
I received nothing that I asked for, All that I hoped for. My prayer was answered. Before God leaves, as it were, the nations to themselves and begins to deal with Israel, His chosen people from Abraham downward, He takes a loving farewell of all the nations of the earth, as much as to say, 'I am going to leave you for a while, but I love you. I have created you: I have ordered all your future; and their different genealogies are traced.
Not just today, but every day For the peace of Israel we must pray. Driven and homeless, lonely, too, Their only crime is to be born a Jew.
