Day 129

1 Chronicles 25-27

boringChapter 25

zzzzzz. Names and details of all the temple musicians. Only verse 3 is interesting, because of an error/contradiction. ” … the sons of Jeduthun; Gedaliah, and Zeri, and Jeshaiah, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah, six….” (KJV) – but that’s only 5. This has been corrected/amended in modern translations, with the addition of Shimei and the following footnote in the NLT: “As in one Hebrew manuscript and some Greek manuscripts; most Hebrew manuscripts lack Shimei.” Infallible? Inerrant?

Chapter 26

The names and duties of the gate keepers and treasurers. Great bedtime reading for insomniacs.

Chapter 27

The names and duties of military commanders, officials, and heads of each tribe. And a note that the census was never finished and the final totals never recorded (v 24). So the whole effort was pointless… just like this bloody book.
