Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Chronicles (I and II)
countries. I Chronicles 29:30 "With all his reign and his might, and the times that went over him, and over Israel, and over all the kingdoms of the countries." I hope you enjoyed my First Chronicles quiz. Stay tuned for my Second Chronicles quiz.
He was not first born.. I Chronicles 26:10 "Also Hosah, of the children of Merari, had sons; Simri the chief, (for though he was not the firstborn, yet his father made him the chief.)" Marari was the youngest son of Levi, who was one of Jacob's sons.
Lahmi. I Chronicles 20:5 ""And there was war again with the Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Jair slew Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, whose spear staff was like a weaver's beam." Lahmi was around the year 1020 BC according to the Smith's Bible Dictionary.
Jair. I Chronicles 20:5 "And there was war again with the Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Jair slew Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, whose spear staff was like a weaver's beam." According to www.jesus-is-lord.com/goliath2.htm the NIV version of the Bible says that Elhanan killed Goliath not David. I still believe it was David however as I was told by a minister that the King James Version is the only authorized Bible.
All other gods.. I Chronicles 16:25 "For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods." Psalms 48:1 and 145:3 also start with the words "Great is the Lord".
Aaronites. I Chronicles 12:27 "And Jehoiada was the leader of the Aaronites, and with him were three thousand and seven hundred." Jehoida was married to Jehosheba. Together they saved the infant Jehoash.
No. I Chronicles 10:4 "Then said Saul to his armourbearer, Draw thy sword, and thrust me through therewith; lest these uncircumcised come and abuse me. But his armourbearer would not; for he was sore afraid. So Saul took a sword, and fell upon it." Saul was the first king of Israel.
3. I Chronicles 6:1 "The sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari." Levi was the son of Jacob (AKA Israel) and Leah. Levi was involved with his other brothers at one time to sell their brother Joseph as a slave in Egypt.
"Because I bare him with sorrow.". I Chronicles 4:9 "And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, 'Because I bare him with sorrow'." Bruce Wilkinson wrote a book called "The Prayer of Jabez".
The King James Version gives the word the archaic spelling of "bare," the past tense of "to bear" (as in, to bear a child). In modern times we would probably spell this word "bore."
Esau. I Chronicles 1:34 "And Abraham begat Isaac. The sons of Isaac; Esau and Israel." Jacob is the same person as Israel, not his brother. Joseph was Israel's favorite son.
up. II Chronicles 36:23 "Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth hath the Lord God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The Lord his God be with him, and let him go up."
Cyrus was born about 600 BCE and is the founder of the Achaemenid Empire. (http://www.livius.org/ct-cz/cyrus_I/cyrus.html) The achaemenid was the first empire in Iran. (http://countrystudies.us/iran/3.htm).

imperfect. II Chronicles 25:2 "And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, but not with a perfect heart."
Amaziah became king when he was 25 after his father Joash was assassinated. Joash was killed while recuperating after a war injury he received because of turning evil and losing the Lord's support. Because of becoming evil he was not allowed to be buried with the kings, instead he was placed in a commoners' cemetery. (http://www.geocities.com/thekingsofisrael/biography_JoashOfJudah.html#death)

Rehoboam. II Chronicles 11: 5-6: "And Rehoboam dwelt in Jerusalem, and built cities for defence in Judah. He built even Bethlehem, and Etam, and Tekoa."
Rehoboam was the grandson of King Solomon. David was Rehoboam's grandfather.
|According to Chapter 5 of the King James Version, what were the only things in the Ark of the Covenant?||Second Chronicles
two tables. II Chronicles 5:10 "There was nothing in the ark save the two tables which Moses put therein at Horeb, when the Lord made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of Egypt."
According to www.jewishencylopedia.com the tables of Moses were six handbreadths in length. One handbreadth is equal to about four inches.
In some versions it does say tablets, but in the King James Version it was written as tables.
Solomon is David's son. II Chronicles 1:1 "And Solomon the son of David was strengthened in his kingdom, and the Lord his God was with him, and magnified him exceedingly."
In 1993, a stone figure was found in Dan with the words "House of David." They believe this was the same David as the David who was Solomon's father. (www.biblehistory.net)
