imageThe One Year Chronological Bible puts events in the order they occurred. It brings genealogies that recap back to share the space with when family lineage is first mentioned. The recounts are identical and even give an account of one possible reason Esau chose to settle in the hill country of Seir.

Scripture

6Esau took his wives and sons and daughters and all the members of his household, as well as his livestock and all his other animals and all the goods he had acquired in Canaan, and moved to a land some distance from his brother Jacob. 7Their possessions were too great for them to remain together; the land where they were staying could not support them both because of their livestock. 8So Esau (that is, Edom) settled in the hill country of Seir

Observation

Esau’s and Jacob’s possession were too great for them to remain together. Esau moved to the hill country of Seir.

One of Esau’s first wives was Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah, the granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite.

Zibeon and Anah his son were descendants of Seir (v. 20, 24, 25; 1 Chronicles 1: 38, 40)

The care with the keeping of records of family descendants is one more indication of the reliability of Scripture.

Application

One more small indicator of the reliability of Scripture. The records were kept conscientiously.

Prayer

Dear Father,

Thank you for the great care You inspired in the people who kept the records that became part of Your word. I trust Your word without proofs but it is nice to see how beautifully Your word fits together.

I love you,

me
