1 Chronicles: From Adam To King David

Humans were created in the area of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, in what is today Iraq. The map shows the river valley in green and the mountains to the north in white.


"2:7 And the LORD God [see The Kingdom Of The LORD God] formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul [see What Does The Bible Really Say About Your Soul?].

2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. 2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

2:10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. 2:11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; 2:12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. 2:13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. 2:14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die [see also How Did Adam And Eve Sin Differently?]." (Genesis 2:7-17 KJV)

The topography of the region determined the history of humanity from the Creation to the Flood. Humans lived in the river valley, while it was to the mountains in the north that the ark of Noah made first dry land. After the Flood, Noah and his family returned to their home area in the valley region, after which the three main branches of humanity, as descended from Noah's three sons, spread out to settle, as shown in the map below.

"8:2 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained; 8:3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated. 8:4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat. 8:5 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen." (Genesis 8:2-5 KJV)

"9:18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan. 9:19 These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread." (Genesis 9:18-19 KJV)

Notice also on the map below that Jerusalem (marked with a red "X") is at the very center of where Asia, Europe and Africa meet, and also where, by no coincidence, that Jerusalem was located (Jerusalem was designated as holy because of its location; it is not otherwise unique to many other cities). Regardless of where humanity spread distant from Asia, Europe and Africa, right to the present day, all people can trace their origin to the place on Earth that had Jerusalem as its center point. The Book of 1 Chronicles documents the history of humanity from the creation of the first humans to the establishment of King David's throne at the center of the world at Jerusalem. That was done, not for David, but for the Messianic Seed of David, Who will rule all people from the place on Earth that was, from the beginning, the center of the Earth of all people.

"4:1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. 4:2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 4:3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." (Micah 4:1-3 KJV)
