1 Chronicles Chapter 7 Jacob’s other sons all lived in the Northern Kingdom of Israel, too. There’s Issachar. He had sons who were awesome fighters. Benjamin was pretty great, too. Lots of sons. Lots of warriors. Naphtali? He had a couple kids. No biggie. And Manasseh. Sure, half of his tribe joined up with the folks from Reuben and Gad, but the rest of them stayed with the big flock and multiplied. Ephraim—he eventually had a pretty important descendant named Joshua who led the Israelites into the Promised Land after Moses died. And don’t forget, Asher. He was busy having sons and begetting all kinds of great warriors. Of course none of these super soldiers helped the people when the Assyrian Empire came knocking and kicked these folks out of their land. They were too powerful. The one thing that’s weird about this section is that the Chronicler seems to have left out Dan and Zebulon’s descendants. So much for his chronicling skills. Matthew 10:16 Look, I’m sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as serpents and as innocent as doves. https://temtube.com/
