Genesis 6:13

Genesis 6:13 So God said to Noah, "I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. Excuse me…but this whole “God SAID" stuff is getting a bit irritating. As in to "God said" […]

Genesis 6:6

Genesis 6:6 The LORD was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. 7 So the LORD said, "I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth—men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air—for I […]

Genesis 5:27

Genesis 5:27 "Altogether, Methuselah lived 969 years, and then he died.' It seems that a lot of the book of Genesis deals with how long people lived. Like this guy lived 840 years, and then this other guy lived 870 years, and another guy (actually it was Enoch, Methuselah’s father)  lived 365 years.   But […]

Genesis 4:26

Genesis 4:26 "At that time men began to call on the name of the LORD" Here we are, nearly five chapters in, and so far we have:     -    Creation    -    Adam and Eve trainwreck creation    -    Cain kills his brother    And now…NOW…."men began to call on the name of the LORD"

Genesis 4:21-22  "His brother's name was Jubal; he was the father of all who play the harp and flute. 22 Zillah also had a son, Tubal-Cain, who forged all kinds of tools out of [a] bronze and iron." So as I read it, this is the first example of a band geek and a "metal […]

“As old as Methusaleh…”

From Genesis 5:27 “As old as Methusaleh…” While not technically a verse in the Bible, this saying refers to the oldest guy ever known. And so I count it as a SITBIDKWITB.

Genesis 4:19

Genesis 4:19 “Lamech married two women, one named Adah and the other Zillah..”   As a public service, I will periodically offer my translation of ancient Biblical names. “Lamech” is an old Hebrew word which, loosely translated, means “crazy man.”

Genesis 4:16 “…and lived in the land of  Nod." "…east of Eden." Boom. Boom. Two "Stuff in the Bible I didn't know was in the Bible" in a row. That is weird.

Genesis 4:9

Genesis 4:9 “…am I my brother’s keeper?” If you look over there…to the right…you'll see a sidebar called "Stuff in the Bible I didn't know was in the Bible." I am sure there are all kinds of ideas and words and phrases that people use today that came from the Bible, and people really they […]

Genesis 4:2

Genesis 4:2 “…Now Abel kept flocks and Cain worked the soil.”   Cain and Abel were the first two sons of Adam and Eve. Which means they were the first two kids born in the whole world.  They built the first treehouse. They had the first mudball fight. They were the first to say "he […]
