There are two accounts. The first one is God's account. The second account is that of Adam, and only describes things from his experience on the sixth day. Genesis 2:4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, Many places in Genesis when there is a ...

A longer answer, which seems much serious, might be found here: www.bible.ca about Aarons tomb I'll try to summarize as asked in the comment: the article to which I linked to gives an account of several textual examples that the biblical mentioned "Mt Hor" might have been succesfully located (actually in the near of the historical town "Petra"). Next they ...

Numbers 20:25–29 says (NABRE) Take Aaron and Eleazar his son and bring them up on Mount Hor. Then strip Aaron of his garments and put them on Eleazar, his son; but there Aaron shall be gathered up in death. Moses did as the LORD commanded. When they had climbed Mount Hor in view of the whole community, Moses stripped Aaron of his garments and put ...

In chapter 19 you will find the cities of the Tribe of Simeon. Nine of those cities are double listed here (Chapter 15) in the section about Judah. Had the count included all the cities, one would get the wrong number when he added all of them up at the end (if he wanted to). According to Rashi, these cities were taken over by the Simeon from Judah. 19:19 ...

The list is 29 cities plus their villages. Apparently, the number of the cities was important, but some villages are important enough to name but not include in the number. An indication of this is some of the obvious repeats, like Hazor [8] and Hezron [16]. This looks like nearby settlements of certain cities are named because they are perceived as ...

On first reading, one might think we might always pray, that's it : ...

If you read a little beyond vs2 in Ecl 5 you'll find this: 4 When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. 5 Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay This is the reason for vs 2. Don't hastily make a promise to God. You may find ...

NEVER STOP PRAYING. (1 Thessalonians 5:17, NLT) Christians should dedicate their whole life in prayer and in holiness. There is nothing such as "Praying too much". But ... There is a difference between praying from the heart and vain repetitions. When we say prayer, many Christians misunderstand it as asking something from God. Asking is not the ...

The Bible in no place says that you can possibly pray too much. In fact, it says just the opposite. Not only in the passage in Luke, but also in 1 Thessalonialns 5:17, which says we should be praying continually. Like most "contradictions' this one is simple to resolve by showing that the problem arises from taking verses out of context. (See Rules ...
