Through the Bible

The Life of a Patriarch

  1. Adam and Eve
    • but for Adam there was not found an help mate for him.
      ( Genesis 2:20 )
    • And the man said: “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for out of man she was taken.”
      ( Genesis 2:23 )
  2. Abraham
    • Abraham, Sarah, and Abimelech
      • Abraham replied, “I thought to myself, ‘Surely there is no fear of God in this place. They will kill me on account of my wife.’
        Besides, she really is my sister, the daughter of my father— though not the daughter of my mother— and she became my wife.
        So when God had me journey from my father’s house, I said to Sarah, ‘This is how you can show your loyalty to me: Wherever we go, say of me: He is my brother.’”…
  3. Isaac
    • One day Abraham said to his oldest servant, the man in charge of his household, “Take an oath by putting your hand under my thigh. Swear by the Lord, the God of heaven and earth, that you will not allow my son to marry one of these local Canaanite women. Go instead to my homeland, to my relatives, and find a wife there for my son Isaac.
      ( Genesis 24:2-4 )
    • He will send his angel ahead of you, and he will see to it that you find a wife there for my son. If she is unwilling to come back with you, then you are free from this oath of mine. But under no circumstances are you to take my son there.”
  4. Esau
    • When Esau was forty years old, he married Judith daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and also Basemath daughter of Elon the Hittite.
      They were a source of grief to Isaac and Rebekah.
      ( Genesis 26:34-35 )
  5. Jacob
    • Then Rachel and Leah replied, “Do we still have any share in the inheritance of our father’s estate? 
      Does he not regard us as foreigners? Not only has he sold us, but he has used up what was paid for us.
       
      Surely all the wealth that God took away from our father belongs to us and our children. So do whatever God has told you.”
      ( Genesis 31:14-16 )
  6. Dinah
    • And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me, to make me odious to the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites: and, I being few in number, they will gather themselves together against me and smite me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house
      And they said, Should he deal with our sister as with a harlot?
      ( Genesis 34:30-31 )

 

Quick Take

These are people called by God.

Waiting within a promise.

And, you know what they do?

They hide themselves, hide their relationships, conceal themselves around the locals.

Understand their fewness.

How many times did Abraham give away his own wife?

Seeking suitable mates among their own.  Yet, held hostage within same.

 

Dedicated

Dedicated to my home girl, Paris Milan.

I came across flippant.

Yet, took to heart her summary of what it costs to have poor dating choices.

It appears that the Patriarchs who saw and heard from God were just as suspicious.

Not every thing can be untied.

Song

Drake – Do Not Disturb
Link

Lyrics

All the things you need
You still want problems though

Distractions will do you in the truest sense
Especially people that wanna lecture me
And frame it like they just want the best for me
Or they check for me
Whatever splits it up
So there’s more for them and less for me

There’s real ones around me
I want to make sure they learn from me

 

The One With Me

…. as some deal with disturbance better than others.

Let us get real
And, keep it real

The one with me
Fine as Fuck
Yes, she still duck
Be the First to Jet
And, say she don’t need that
