Scripture Notes Old Testament

-Adullam:.Easton's Bible Dictionary."One of the royal cities of the Canaanites", now Aid-el-ma:.Joshua 12:15.

"It stood on the old Roman road not far from Gath, in the valley of Elah.(q.v.), which was the scene of David's memorable victory over Goliath:.1Samuel 17:4

"The Cave of Adullam has been discovered about 2 miles south of the scene of David's triumph and about 13 miles west from Bethlehem. At this place is a hill some 500 feet high pierced with numerous caverns, in one of which David gathered together."every one that was in distress and every one that was in debt and every one that was discontented":.1Samuel 22:2. Some of these caverns are large enough to hold 200 or 300 men. According to tradition this cave was at Wady Khureitun, between Bethlehem and the Dead Sea,

"It was one of the towns which Rehoboam fortified against Egypt."

Adullam was called."the glory of Israel":.Micah 1:15.

-Amalekites:  were a powerful people, who dwelt in Arabia Petraea, between the Dead Sea and the Red Sea. It is apparent that they dwelt south of Palestine, between Mount Seir and the border of Egypt, from Havilah until to Shur:.Numbers 13:29; 1Samuel 15:7. It does not appear that they possessed many cities, though one is mentioned in 1Samuel 15:5. They lived generally in migrating parties, in caves or in tents, like the nomadic Bedaween, also called Bedouin, Arabs of the present day. Their kings bore the hereditary name of Agag:.1Samuel 15:8; Numbers 24:7. The Amalekites were a people around since the beginning:.Genesis 14:7.

The Israelites had scarcely passed the Red sea on their journey out from Egypt when the Amelikites attacked them.(Deuteronomy 25:17,18).in the desert of Rephidim and slew those who, through fatigue or weakness, lagged behind and for this unprovoked assault on the people of God, the doom of extermination was passed upon them:.Exodus 17:8-16. They attempted to stop the Israelites when they marched through their territory by attacking them at Rephidim:.Deutertonomy 25:17; 1Samuel 15:2,3. They came again into conflict with a part of the Israelites on the border of the promised land.(Numbers 13:25-28).where they attacked the Israelites at Hormah:.Numbers 14:45. We read of them subsequently as in league with the Moabites.(Judges 3:12-14).and the Midianites:.Judges 6:3.

After 400 years, king Saul of the Israelites attacked and destroyed them at the command of the Lord:.1Samuel 14:47,48; 15:2-35. A remnant, however, escaped and subsided afterwards.

After Saul, king David defeated them on several occasions:.1Samuel 27:8; 1Samuel 30:1-3,18-20

The Amalekites were finally blotted out by the Simeonites, in the time of Hezekiah:.1Chronicles 4:42,43. This fulfilled the prediction of Balaam:.Numbers 24:20. Haman, the last of the Amalekite race mentioned in Scripture, perished like his fathers, in conflict with the Jews. See the book of Esther.

In the Babylonian inscriptions Amalekites are called Sute, in those of Egypt Sittiu and the Amarna tablets include them under the general name of Khabbati or 'plunderers'.

The Amalekites were not the descendants of Amalek, the son of Eliphaz, for they existed in the days of Abraham:.Genesis 14:6-11.

-Brazen or Molten Sea: The Brazen or Molten Sea, a huge bowl of brass made by Solomon for the temple, was a circular vessel at about 20 feet in diameter, which stood in the court of the temple and could handle up to three thousand baths daily, according to 2Chronicles 4:5. This brass 'swimming pool' was supported by twelve oxen of brass and was probably the largest brazen vessel ever made, evidence of the skill of the workers in metal at that period. It contained from 16,000 to 24,000 gallons and was supplied with water by a pipe from the well of Etam, so that a constant flow was maintained. This water was used for the various ablutions of the priests:.2Chronicles 4:6; Hebrews 9:9,10

-Chub:.Easton's Bible Dictionary."The name of a people in alliance with Egypt in the time of Nebuchadnezzar II. They were probably a people of Northern Africa or of the lands near Egypt in the south."

Jamieson, Fausset, Brown Commentary."A people named Kufa, on the monuments. Ptolemy mentions a 'Chob-at' in Mauritania and a 'Chob-ion' in the Mareotic nome in Egypt."

-Isaac and Esau: What do these sentences mean?.Genesis 27:39,40 "And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth and of the dew of heaven from above;...And by thy sword shalt thou live and shalt serve thy brother and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck."

Comprised with.Barnes New Testament Notes: In reply to the weeping Esau, Isaac his father bestows upon him a blessing, "fatness of the Earth"; "by thy sword", by preying upon others; "serve thy brother", Edom, the nation that came from Esau was long independent but at length Saul was victorious over them.(1Samuel 14:47).and David conquered them:.2Samuel 8:14. Then followed a long struggle, until John Hyrcanus, B.C.E. 129, compelled them to be circumcised and incorporated into Judaism.

"break his yoke" is about the history of Edom. Here a perpetual struggle takes place against the supremacy of Israel, the nation that traces back to Jacob. Edom was incorporated into the Jewish state and furnished it with the dynasty of princes beginning with Antipater, Macedonian general and regent.(B.C.E. 334-323).who governed the empire during Alexander III's military campaigns. He served again as regent in 321 to 319. Esau was now exasperated against his brother and could only compose his mind by resolving to slay him during the days of mourning after his father's death.

-Psalms beginning with 'To the chief Musician': such as Psalms 42 and 44.
Barnes Notes: There is no way in which the authorship can be determined from these Psalms. It does not belong to the general division of the book of Psalms which is ascribed to David.(Psalms 1 to 41).and though there can be no doubt that a large number of the Psalms in the other portions of the book were composed by David, yet it is impossible now to ascertain which were his, unless his name is prefixed to a psalm. While the fact that his name is not so prefixed may be regarded as a proof that, in the belief of those who arranged the collection, it was not his composition. David.may have been.the author of some of those Psalms which are ascribed to no particular writer.

-On.Genesis 4:1-7:.Adam Clarke's Commentary by Gary Gallant."God now graciously informs him that, though he had miscarried, his case was not yet desperate, as the means of faith, from the promise, a sin offering was lying at the door of his fold.(was available for him). How many sinners perish, not because there is not a Savior able and willing to save them, but because they will not use that which is within their power! Of such how true is that word of our Lord."

"These words are not spoken of sin, as many have understood them, but of Abel's submission to Cain as his superior.(eldest son in the family).and the words are spoken to remove Cain's envy.".Genesis 4:7 "...Unto thee shall be his desire'...".That is, you shall ever have the right of primogeniture and in all things shall your brother be subject unto you."

-On Isaiah 40:28."no searching of His understanding".or as another translation has it."his understanding is unsearchable"

Barnes Notes:."It is impossible for a finite mind fully and adequately to search out all the proofs of his.(God's).wisdom and skill. Man can see only a part, a small part, while the vast ocean, the boundless deep of his wisdom, lies still unexplored":.Job 11:7-9; 1Corinthians 13:12.

-On Exodus 13:12 and word."matrix": The word matrix in the Bible means a womb; something very deep. The root of this word in the original is 'to love', 'love deeply', 'have mercy', 'be compassionate', 'have tender affection', 'have compassion'.

A matrix is something within or from which something else takes form, us drawing from the invisible energy of the supporting patterns in the sea of this mathematically perfect invisibility.

Our bodies are set up to function flawlessly, automatically drawing on its continuous power. For example our immune systems are incredibly powerful and will stay that way with proper organic food, positive healthful thoughts and avoiding the poisonings assaulting us from all sides. Our thoughts, if negative, can really screw proper functioning up, keeping us at an unsane level and out of the new spiritual era. This means one connected to the Great Infinite Intelligence

Here there is vibrancy, where one is alive in a different way, now a way of having a living relationship with this Great Being; one's spiritual thirst is continually quenched by what the Bible calls living water.

Through how we were designed with our DNA being the frequency connection, the 'aerial', the receiver and the sender.(what the gaps are for in DNA).into the energy of the quantum field.(the Bible refers to this as the Holy Spirit), we are able to daily be in this living invisible spirit water.(John 4:10,14; 7:37,38; John 3:5,6), which is being in the kingdom of the Infinite One, but only when the attitude is consistently of love. As Bruno Gröning has said."I have detected the presence of the receiving instrument in human beings and I happen to be in a position to overhaul the human organism, so to speak. For people who have been healed by me this is a matter of course, just like a radio.".One of the fundamental teachings of Bruno Gröning is that."God is the transmitter, people are the receivers.".Always take time to receive the divine transmission, to tune into it as you would seek a certain radio station; how?

DNA is really an 'aerial' having one helix over another which draws in the invisible intelligent energy of the cosmos.

All is created out of this water; the Sun, the Earth, actually, all that we see and know of and all we don't yet see or know of:.Genesis 1:2.

This water is the spirit energy of what we have come today to prove as the quantum field, the invisible universe which supports or constantly feeds into the physical, supporting it. The key to engage the matrix spiritually is love. Love has a frequency of 528 Hertz, which is the operating/creative energy underlying creation:.1John 4:8,16.

Words are the language that precedes creation. Words show intention, show meaning and if that of love, resonate with the love frequency and then come into physical manifestation. It's a law of the universe that things work this way. You are able to work this:.John 14:6; 1:1,7;

Love is a frequency.

-Zerubbabel: He is also known by the Persian name of Sheshbazzar:.Ezra 1:8,11. In the first year of Cyrus, king of Persia, he led the first band of Jews, numbering 42,360.(Ezra 2:64), exclusive of a large number of servants, who returned from captivity.(2Chronicles 36:10).at the close of the seventy years. In the second year after the Return he erected an altar and laid the foundation of the temple on the ruins of that which had been destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar-II:.Ezra 3:8-13; chapters 4-6. New Testament written in Greek spelling is Zorobabel in Matthew 1:12-14 and Luke 3:27.

-Zoar: Zoar means small, a town on the east or southeast of the Dead Sea, to which Lot and his daughters fled from Sodom: Genesis 19:11-23. It was originally called Bela Genesis 14:2. Its ruins are still seen at the opening of the ravine of Kerak, the Kir-Moab, the modern 'Tell esh-Shaghur'.
