1 Chronicles 4: The Clans Of Judah And Simeon

"These were their habitations, and their genealogy"

The Messianic genealogy of Judah was based upon a line that was established by the LORD (Who was and is Jesus Christ - see Genesis 1: In The Beginning Was The Word and The Kingdom Of The LORD God) in the time of Abraham (see From Adam To The Seed Of Abraham, The Origin Of Israelites And Jews and The Royal Line Of David).

"4:1 The sons of Judah; Pharez, Hezron, and Carmi, and Hur, and Shobal.

4:2 And Reaiah the son of Shobal begat Jahath; and Jahath begat Ahumai, and Lahad. These are the families of the Zorathites. 4:3 And these were of the father of Etam; Jezreel, and Ishma, and Idbash: and the name of their sister was Hazelelponi: 4:4 And Penuel the father of Gedor, and Ezer the father of Hushah. These are the sons of Hur, the firstborn of Ephratah, the father of Bethlehem. 4:5 And Ashur the father of Tekoa had two wives, Helah and Naarah. 4:6 And Naarah bare him Ahuzam, and Hepher, and Temeni, and Haahashtari. These were the sons of Naarah. 4:7 And the sons of Helah were, Zereth, and Jezoar, and Ethnan. 4:8 And Coz begat Anub, and Zobebah, and the families of Aharhel the son of Harum.

4:9 And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. 4:10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.

4:11 And Chelub the brother of Shuah begat Mehir, which was the father of Eshton. 4:12 And Eshton begat Bethrapha, and Paseah, and Tehinnah the father of Irnahash. These are the men of Rechah. 4:13 And the sons of Kenaz; Othniel, and Seraiah: and the sons of Othniel; Hathath. 4:14 And Meonothai begat Ophrah: and Seraiah begat Joab, the father of the valley of Charashim; for they were craftsmen. 4:15 And the sons of Caleb the son of Jephunneh; Iru, Elah, and Naam: and the sons of Elah, even Kenaz. 4:16 And the sons of Jehaleleel; Ziph, and Ziphah, Tiria, and Asareel. 4:17 And the sons of Ezra were, Jether, and Mered, and Epher, and Jalon: and she bare Miriam, and Shammai, and Ishbah the father of Eshtemoa. 4:18 And his wife Jehudijah bare Jered the father of Gedor, and Heber the father of Socho, and Jekuthiel the father of Zanoah. And these are the sons of Bithiah the daughter of Pharaoh, which Mered took. 4:19 And the sons of his wife Hodiah the sister of Naham, the father of Keilah the Garmite, and Eshtemoa the Maachathite. 4:20 And the sons of Shimon were, Amnon, and Rinnah, Benhanan, and Tilon. And the sons of Ishi were, Zoheth, and Benzoheth. 4:21 The sons of Shelah the son of Judah were, Er the father of Lecah, and Laadah the father of Mareshah, and the families of the house of them that wrought fine linen, of the house of Ashbea, 4:22 And Jokim, and the men of Chozeba, and Joash, and Saraph, who had the dominion in Moab, and Jashubilehem. And these are ancient things. 4:23 These were the potters, and those that dwelt among plants and hedges: there they dwelt with the king for his work." (1 Chronicles 4:1-23 KJV)

The Israelite patriarchs were born of five women - four Iraqi-Syrians in Syria (Leah, Rachel, Bilhah and Zilpah; see A Biography Of Jacob: The Jacobites Of Syria) and one Egyptian ("... Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On" Genesis 41:45 KJV; see The Adoption Of Ephraim and Manasseh). Simeon was the second-born son of Jacob / Israel, after Reuben and before Levi. His mother was Leah - which made him a full-brother of Judah. Leah's children were Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, and Israel's only recorded daughter, Dinah (see Dinah).

The territory of Simeon was located to the south of the territory of Judah.

"4:24 The sons of Simeon were, Nemuel, and Jamin, Jarib, Zerah, and Shaul: 4:25 Shallum his son, Mibsam his son, Mishma his son. 4:26 And the sons of Mishma; Hamuel his son, Zacchur his son, Shimei his son.

4:27 And Shimei had sixteen sons and six daughters; but his brethren had not many children, neither did all their family multiply, like to the children of Judah. 4:28 And they dwelt at Beersheba, and Moladah, and Hazarshual, 4:29 And at Bilhah, and at Ezem, and at Tolad, 4:30 And at Bethuel, and at Hormah, and at Ziklag, 4:31 And at Bethmarcaboth, and Hazarsusim, and at Bethbirei, and at Shaaraim. These were their cities unto the reign of David. 4:32 And their villages were, Etam, and Ain, Rimmon, and Tochen, and Ashan, five cities: 4:33 And all their villages that were round about the same cities, unto Baal. These were their habitations, and their genealogy.

4:34 And Meshobab, and Jamlech, and Joshah the son of Amaziah, 4:35 And Joel, and Jehu the son of Josibiah, the son of Seraiah, the son of Asiel, 4:36 And Elioenai, and Jaakobah, and Jeshohaiah, and Asaiah, and Adiel, and Jesimiel, and Benaiah, 4:37 And Ziza the son of Shiphi, the son of Allon, the son of Jedaiah, the son of Shimri, the son of Shemaiah;

4:38 These mentioned by their names were princes in their families: and the house of their fathers increased greatly. 4:39 And they went to the entrance of Gedor, even unto the east side of the valley, to seek pasture for their flocks. 4:40 And they found fat pasture and good, and the land was wide, and quiet, and peaceable; for they of Ham had dwelt there of old.

4:41 And these written by name came in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah, and smote their tents, and the habitations that were found there, and destroyed them utterly unto this day, and dwelt in their rooms: because there was pasture there for their flocks. 4:42 And some of them, even of the sons of Simeon, five hundred men, went to mount Seir, having for their captains Pelatiah, and Neariah, and Rephaiah, and Uzziel, the sons of Ishi. 4:43 And they smote the rest of the Amalekites that were escaped, and dwelt there unto this day." (1 Chronicles 4:24-43 KJV)

This Day In History, July 4

414: Emperor Theodosius II, at age 13, yielded power to his older sister, Aelia Pulcheria, who then reigned as regent and proclaimed herself Empress ("Augusta") of the Eastern Roman Empire (see The Politics Of Rome, A History Of Jerusalem: Pompey And The Caesars and Pax Romana: The Birth Of The Roman Empire).

1064: Chinese and Arabian astronomers recorded what they called a bright new "guest star" in the constellation of Taurus. The results of that supernova ("a star that explodes and becomes extremely luminous in the process") can be seen today as the Crab Nebula.

1187: Saladin's Muslim forces defeated Church of Rome "Crusader" forces (see A History Of Jerusalem: Constantine and Muhammad and Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy) at Battle of the Horns of Hattin, overlooking the Sea of Galilee near Tiberias (see The Cities Of Lake Galilee). The victory led to Saladin's capture of Jerusalem from the self-proclaimed "King of Jerusalem," Guy of Lusignan, of France.

1190: Richard I of England and Philip II of France started on the Third Crusade.

1609: French explorer Samuel de Champlain discovered (for Europeans; the native people already knew that the lake was there) what was later named Lake Champlain in New York.

1634: The city of Trois-Rivières was founded in "New France" (Quebec, Canada).

1653: "The Barebones Parliament" began; a hand-picked legislative group of 140 men convened by Oliver Cromwell following the Puritan victory in the English Civil War. The name was derived as a mockery of one of its members, "Praise-God" Barbon.

1776: The Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia by representatives of the 13 English colonies that had been created in the barren wilderness of "New England," beginning nearly two centuries earlier with the English settlement of Jamestown in 1607 (named after King James I; the King James Version of the Holy Bible was also named after him). Despite the popularized myths and propaganda, only about 1/3 of the colonists actually rebelled (the most militant ones); the other 2/3 were conservatives (hard-working, successful, business people, farmers, teachers and loyal military officers) who either accepted the new regime out of fear, or fled as persecuted refugees - returning to England, or resettling in Canada where they became known as the United Empire Loyalists.

1831: Samuel Francis Smith wrote the lyrics for America (also known as "My Country 'Tis Of Thee"). Many historians find it very strange that the music that he used for his patriotic hymn was the very same as that already long-used for England's national anthem God Save the King - hence the reason that, to this day, God Save the King/Queen and America cannot be distinguished merely from the music.

1885: The Statue of Liberty arrived in New York City from Europe. While most are aware that it was a gift from the Roman-Catholic people and government of France, very few realize that the Statue of Liberty was a deliberate, as stated by its builders, reproduction of the ancient Roman goddess Libertas, idol-worshipping Rome's "goddess of freedom." A 2,000 year-old Roman coin from 42 BC, from the era of the birth of the Roman Empire, as shown in the photograph, shows Libertas (including the idol's name, the Latin Libertas, in English meaning "Lady Liberty" right on the coin); the face and the crown are identical to the Statue of Liberty.

Libertas 1904: Construction of the Panama Canal began.

1918: Ottoman sultan Mehmed VI ascended to the throne (see A History Of Jerusalem: The British Mandate).

1918: Bolshevik rebel forces in Russia seized and murdered Tsar Nicholas II ("Tsar" is the Russian form of Caesar, as is the German Kaiser) and his family. The revolution began 70 years of communism in Russia.

1946: After nearly 4 centuries of foreign rule by one colonial nation after another, the Philippines achieved full independence from the U.S.

1947: The British Parliament introduced the "Indian Independence Bill" to divide British India into two sovereign countries - India and Pakistan.

1987: In France, Hitler-era Gestapo (in German, "Gestapo" was an abbreviation for "State Police") chief Klaus Barbie (known as the "Butcher of Lyon") was convicted of crimes against humanity and was sentenced to life imprisonment (see also Presidential Quotes On War, Terrorism, Religion).

1995: A Canadian Navy submarine recovered the bell of the iron ore carrier Edmund Fitzgerald, that sank on November 10 1975 in Lake Superior with the loss of 29 men. The sinking was made famous by Gordon Lightfoot's The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald.
