I have to agree that there were arrangements for the poor. I don't know if Ya`acob was rich or poor, but we see Laban making accomodations for him. He was able to work for 7 years for Laban in lieu of the dowry. (Dowry is a whole other subject, from my understanding it was not a payment to the fathe...

don't focus so hard on the daylight part, and you'll see the whole day, not just that part where one works
remember, dark came before light, after all, what was there before light?

Chuck, I still don't understand. All the versions show evening first, then morning, showing the 24 hour day beginning at dark. And again, all of them also show the day being daylight hours. It's just like today, the day of daylight is part of the day as a whole, but so is the dark hours of the day c...

It's easy enough to comprehend, but it's WRONG. It's even easier to comprehend what the Hebrew text says, which is NOT what the KJV says. Just see one of my previous posts on the subject. The Gen.1 creation days (day 2 - day 6) started & ended at DAWN (morning/boqer). Ok, I'm not quite sure how...

I think y'all are getting a little stressed out. Maybe take a little wine for your stomach's sake...... And while you're at it, try to do it in each other's company so you can have a little positive time together :-) BTW, from the beginning time was listed as evening and morning being the 1st, 2nd, ...

OK, here goes, in Ex. 21, immediately following the passage about the bondservant who became a lifelong servant out of love for his master: Exo 21:7 “And when a man sells his daughter to be a female servant, she does not go out as the male servants do. Exo 21:8 “If she is displeasing in the eyes...

I'll try to type it up later today, possibly this evening. I'd like to be able to have time to gather the thoughts and be able to put them into text that is clear and understandable.

I have a different understanding of Ex. 21 than you do, if you care to hear it sometime, I'll elaborate. I don't think that portion is speaking of polygyny.

Cool! I think we agree on pretty much everything. I do have questions about the following paragraph though: So, if a male, a polygynist, requires that his wives work in the world to support his family as well as minister to his needs, care for his children, etc., then I believe that he is out of ord...

Re: Sister Sledge..?

I don't know you - I don't even know if you are male or female. I would not be able to answer that question for you. It seems that you took everything that I said on the subject of polygyny, and twisted it to apply narrowly to YOUR situation when I clearly stated that I was referring to the types o...

Re: Sister Sledge..?

I have noticed that men in polygynous relationships in America (Utah, Arizona, etc.) that are highlighted in the news seem to have certain characteristics in common. They seem to wish to have lots of free/varied sex as a priority and they seem to want lots of women FOR LABOR! It seems like a very a...

you are correct, I didn't mention them, but where do I stop with the list? Hannah was loved, and I'll assume Elkana's other wife was also. Leah is recorded as being hated, yet interestingly enough, for one hated, Ya`acob was willing to provide for her, give her children, and evidently communicate wi...

That is the popular explanation. However, I ask this: Was Sarah oppressed or depressed? Was Abigal, David's second wife? She brought along several women knowing full well David might choose them as well as her. She had already been accepted, yet she brought her friends. And Scripture calls her a wis...

Indeed, and right now the taskmasters beat my back.
Maybe that's because I refuse to serve them like they want me to, simply because I serve the King
