Sitting in a rest stop on our way back from visiting Tamika’s grandparents.
I’m going through a reading plan that takes you through the bible in chronological order. I was curious about the two Lamechs in Genesis, so I looked them up.
Never thought of translating the actual NAMES of people in the bible before. When you do, Genesis 4 reads something like this:
God’s servant took two wives, light and darkness. The light brought forth the shepherd, who was the father of tent-dwellers, and herdsmen, and his brother was the musician, who was the father of harpists and pipers. But the darkness brought forth the blacksmith, the forger of brass, and of iron, and his sister was pleasure.
