"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

According to tradition this cave was at Wady Khureitun, between Bethlehem
and the Dead Sea,
"It was one of the towns
fortified against Egypt."
Adullam was called."the
glory of Israel":.Micah
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
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

a people around since the beginning:.Genesis

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
they attacked the Israelites at Hormah:.Numbers
14:45. We read of them subsequently as in league with the Moabites.(Judges
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,

After Saul, king David
defeated them on several occasions:.1Samuel

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
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

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
of the priests:.2Chronicles

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."
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
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.
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.

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
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
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.

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',
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
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
