THE SCRIPT FOR HAVING CHILDREN

Should a couple decide to have only two children, the eldest a blue-eyed boy with black hair and

Ag, let's take both of them

the girl, a blond with brown eyes the only option would be by adoption.

Yes, I know she's not blond but...

Even then, one might change one’s mind.

 

That is what God decided to do. He wants children. His children must love Him for what He is, not for what they can ‘get out of Him’. God said that He is what He is; He is not double-faced.

“Adam then named his wife “Eve, because she was to become the mother of everyone who was living. LORD God fashioned garments from animal skins for Adam and his wife, and clothed

them. Later, the LORD God said, ‘Look! The man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now, so he won’t reach out, also take from the tree of life, eat, and then live forever—therefore the LORD God expelled the man from the garden of

Eden so he would work the ground from which he had been taken.

After he had expelled the man, the LORD God placed winged angels at the eastern end of the garden of Eden, along with a fiery whirling sword, to prevent access to the tree of life.”

End of Act 1

The ‘golden threads‘ to follow through the Acts are:

1  A free will

2  Love for God for what He is, not for personal gain

3  Absolute obedience

4  Well trained in New Testament family code of behaviour

5  Be prepared to be put to the test

It is written, Rom 3:1-, “What good is it to be a Jew? What good is it to be circumcised? It is good in a lot of ways! First of all, God’s messages were spoken to the Jews.

“It is true that some of them did not believe the message. But does this mean that God cannot be trusted, just because they did not have faith? No, indeed! God tells the truth, even if everyone else is a liar.

“The Scriptures say about God, ‘Your words will be proven true, and in court you will win your case.’ If our evil deeds show how right God is, then what can we say? Is it wrong for God to become angry and punish us? What a foolish thing to ask. But the answer is, “No.” Otherwise, how could God judge the world?”

ACT 2

The time of innocence had come to an end. Adam and Eve, and their descendants, know the difference between ‘good and evil’ and therefore are ruled by sin,  1Co 15:-44-, “As surely as there are physical bodies, there are spiritual bodies. And our physical bodies will be changed into spiritual bodies. The first man was named Adam, and the Scriptures tell us that he was a living person. But Jesus, who may be called the last Adam, is a life-giving spirit.

“We see that the one with a spiritual body did not come first. He came after the one who had a physical body. The first man was made from the dust of the earth, but the second man came from heaven.  Everyone on earth has a body like the body of the one who was made from the dust of the earth. And everyone in heaven has a body like the body of the one who came from heaven.

“Just as we are like the one who was made out of earth, we will be like the one who came from heaven. My friends, I want you to know that our bodies of flesh and blood will decay. This means that they cannot share in God’s kingdom, which lasts forever. I will explain a mystery to you. Not every one of us will die, but we will all be changed. It will happen suddenly, quicker than the blink of an eye. At the sound of the last trumpet the dead will be raised. We will all be changed, so that we will never die again.

“Our dead and decaying bodies will be changed into bodies that won’t die or decay. The bodies we now have are weak and can die. But they will be changed into bodies that are eternal. Then the Scriptures will come true, ‘Death has lost the battle! Where is its victory? Where is its sting?’

Sin is what gives death its sting, and the Law is the power behind sin.

“But thank God for letting our Lord Jesus Christ give us the victory! My dear friends, stand firm and don’t be shaken. Always keep busy working for the Lord. You know that everything you do for him is worthwhile.”

So, where there are no laws there can be no sin. One can therefore only assume that God, when he killed the animal to make skirts to ‘cover the nakedness of Adam and Eve’, that He introduced a system of sacrificing whereby an animal becomes a ransom. We do know that the Law, given to Moses,, concerning the Jews, was given 2 453 years after Adam.

Therefore, Act 2 is a demonstration of Paul’s writing the Romans,  Rom 2:11-, “God doesn’t have any favourites! Those people who don’t know about God’s Law will still be punished for what they do wrong. And the Law will be used to judge everyone who knows what it says. God accepts those who obey his Law, but not those who simply hear it.

“Some people naturally obey the Law’s commands, even though they don’t have the Law. This proves that the conscience is like a law written in the human heart. And it will show whether we are forgiven or condemned, when God appoints Jesus Christ to judge everyone’s secret thoughts, just as my message says.”

The complexity of the situation in which Adam and Eve finds themselves is:

They can and they can’t – They will and they won’t

They’ll be damned if they do – They’ll be damned if they don’t

Paul sums it up as follows, Rom 7:22-, “With my whole heart I agree with the Law of God. But in every part of me I discover something fighting against my mind, and it makes me a prisoner of sin that controls everything I do. What a miserable person I am. Who will rescue me from this body that is doomed to die? Thank God! Jesus Christ will rescue me. So with my mind I serve the Law of God, although my selfish desires make me serve the law of sin.”

Paul does not leave one in the dark, he supplies the answer, Col 3:1-, “You have been raised to life with Christ. Now set your heart on what is in heaven, where Christ rules at God’s right side. Think about what is up there, not about what is here on earth. You died, which means that your life is hidden with Christ, who sits beside God. Christ gives meaning to your life, and when he appears, you will also appear with him in glory. Don’t be controlled by your body. Kill every desire…”

Adam and Eve, and their descendants, had no knowledge concerning the ‘coming of Jesus’ (Act 4 and 5 ‘Watch this space’) except for the promise given concerning the Seed of Eve which she misunderstood,  Gen 3:15  “You and this woman will hate each other; your descendants and hers will always be enemies. One of hers will strike you on the head, and you will strike him on the heel.”

Right through the ages, in the different ‘acts’, there was always someone like Enos who realised his frailty/imperfection (that is what his name means) and called upon the Lord. In ‘our act’, —2011— it is written, in our script, Rom 10:1-, “Dear friends, my greatest wish and my prayer to God is for the people of Israel to be saved. I know they love God, but they don’t understand what makes people acceptable to him. So they refuse to trust God, and they try to be acceptable by obeying the Law.

“But Christ makes the Law no longer necessary for those who become acceptable to God by faith. Moses said that a person could become acceptable to God by obeying the Law. He did this when he wrote, ‘If you want to live, you must do all that the Law commands.’ But people whose faith makes them acceptable to God will never ask, ‘Who will go up to heaven to bring Christ down?’ (That promised Seed). Neither will they ask, ‘Who will go down into the world of the dead to raise him to life?’

“All who are acceptable because of their faith simply say, ‘The message is as near as your mouth or your heart.’ And this is the same message we preach about faith. So you will be saved, if you honestly say, ‘Jesus is Lord’ (Jesus is that promised Seed). And, if you believe with all your heart that God raised him from death (Mar 16:14-, “Afterwards as they lay at table he was manifested to the eleven, and reproached them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen him risen. And he said to them, ‘Go into all the world, and preach the glad tidings to all the creation. He that believes and is baptised shall be saved, and he that disbelieves shall be condemned’).

“God will accept you and save you, if you truly believe this and tell it to others. The Scriptures say that no one who has faith will be disappointed, no matter if that person is a Jew or a Gentile. There is only one Lord, and he is generous to everyone who asks for his help. All who call out to the Lord will be saved.”

Sad to say, there are those who insist in changing the script. Their argument, time has moved on and customs have changed. However, it is written in our script, 2Ti 3:1-, “But of this be assured: in the last days grievous times will set in. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, and profane. They will be disobedient to parents, thankless, irreligious, and destitute of natural affection, unforgiving, slanderers. They will have no self-control, but will be brutal, opposed to goodness, treacherous, headstrong, and self-important.

“They will love pleasure instead of loving God, and will keep up a make-believe of piety and yet live in defiance of its power. Turn away from people of this sort. Among them are included the men who make their way into private houses and carry off weak women as their prisoners–women who, weighed down by the burden of their sins, are led by ever-changing caprice, and are always learning something new, and yet are never able to arrive at real knowledge of the truth…”

Paul continues, 2Ti 4:1-, “I solemnly implore you, in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus who is about to judge the living and the dead, and by His Appearing and His Kingship. Proclaim God’s message, be zealous in season and out of season; convince, rebuke, encourage, with the utmost patience as a teacher.

“For a time is coming when they will not tolerate wholesome instruction, but, wanting to have their ears tickled, they will find a multitude of teachers to satisfy their own fancies (or, print a new Bible translation to meet their need); and will turn away from listening to the truth and will turn aside to fables. But as for you, you must exercise habitual self-control, and not live a self-indulgent life, but do the duty of an evangelist and fully discharge the obligations of your office.

“I for my part am like a drink-offering which is already being poured out; and the time for my departure is now close at hand. I have gone through the glorious contest; I have run the race; I have guarded the faith. From this time onward there is reserved for me the crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me, but also to all who love the thought of His Appearing.”

Noah, too, was such a man. Noah, being ‘perfect in his generations’ tells of a story often overlooked. He and his ancestors were not of the ‘seed’ of the Nephilim, Gen 6:7-, “And Jehovah said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the ground; both man, and beast, and creeping things, and birds of the heavens; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

“But Noah found favour in the eyes of Jehovah. These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, and perfect in his generations: Noah walked with God. And Noah begat three sons, Shem (meaning name: the selected one), Ham (dark coloured), and Japheth…” The three sons of Noah were no doubt genetically connected, via his wife, to the Nephilim hence their appearances. The bloodline, and therefore Adam’s imputed sin, was passed on to all three via Noah.”

So God announced to Noah, ‘I’ve decided to destroy every living thing on earth, because it has become filled with violence due to them. Look! I’m about to annihilate them, along with the earth. So make yourself an ark out of cedar, constructing compartments in it, and cover it inside and out with tar.

‘Make the ark like this: 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high. Make a roof for the ark, and finish the walls to within one and a half feet from the top. Place the entrance in the side of the ark, and build a lower, middle, and an upper deck. For my part, I’m about to flood the earth with water and destroy every living thing that breathes. Everything on earth will die.

‘However, I will establish my own covenant with you, and you are to enter the ark—you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives. You are to bring two of every living thing into the ark so they may remain alive with you. They are to be male and female.

‘From birds according to their species, from domestic animals according to their species, and from everything that crawls on the ground according to their species—two of everything will come to you so they may remain alive. For your part, take some of the edible food and store it away—these stores will be food for you and the animals.’ Noah did all of this, precisely as God had commanded.

On the seventeenth day of the second month, when Noah was 600 years old, all the springs of the great deep burst open, the floodgates of the heavens were opened, and it rained throughout the earth for 40 days and 40 nights.

The flood continued throughout the earth for 40 days, while the flood waters increased, lifting the ark so that it rose above the surface of the earth. The floodwaters continued to surge, increasing throughout the earth, while the ark floated on the surface of the floodwater.

The floodwater surged even higher throughout the earth, until all the highest mountains under the sky were covered. The floodwaters rose 22 and half feet above the mountains. Every living thing on earth died—birds, livestock, wildlife, all creatures that swarm over the earth, and all human beings. Everything that breathed and everything that had lived on dry land died. All existing creatures that had lived on the surface of the ground were annihilated, from humans to livestock, from crawling creatures to birds of the sky. They were wiped off the earth. Only Noah remained, along with those who were with him in the ark. The floodwaters surged over the earth for 150 days.

History will repeat itself during our act for it is written, for our script, Luk 17:20-, “Some of the Pharisees asked Jesus, ‘When will God’s kingdom come?. Jesus answered, ‘God’s kingdom is coming, but not in a way that you can see it. People will not say, ‘Look, God’s kingdom is here!’ or ‘There it is!’ No, God’s kingdom is here with you.

“Then Jesus said to his followers, “The time will come when you will want very much to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not be able to. People will say to you, ‘Look, there it is!’ or ‘Look, here it is!’ Stay where you are; don’t go away and search.

“When the Son of Man comes again, you will know it. On that day, He will shine like lightning flashes across the sky. But first, the Son of Man must suffer many things. The people of today will refuse to accept him. When the Son of Man comes again, it will be the same as it was when Noah lived. People were eating, drinking, and getting married even on the day when Noah entered the boat. Then the flood came and killed them all.

“It will be the same as during the time of Lot, when God destroyed Sodom. Those people were eating, drinking, buying, selling, planting, and building houses for themselves. They were doing these things even on the day when Lot left town. Then fire and sulphur rained down from the sky and killed them all. This is exactly how it will be when the Son of Man comes again.

“On that day if a man is on his roof, he will not have time to go inside and get his things. If a man is in the field, he cannot go back home. Remember what happened to Lot’s wife! Whoever tries to keep the life they have will lose it. But whoever gives up their life will save it. That night there may be two people sleeping in one room. One will be taken and the other will be left. There may be two women working together. One will be taken and the other will be left. [“Two men will be in the same field. One man will be taken, but the other man will be left behind.”] The followers asked Jesus, ‘Where will this be, Lord?’ Jesus answered, ‘It’s like looking for a dead body–you will find it where the vultures are gathering above’.”

The advice, for that time, Rev 18:4, “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”

End of Act 2

 The ‘golden threads‘ to follow through the Acts are:

1    A free will

2    Love for God for what he is, not for personal gain

3     Absolute obedience

4      Well trained in New Testament family code of behaviour

5     Be prepaired to be put to the test

It is written, Rom 3:1-, “What good is it to be a Jew? What good is it to be circumcised? It is good in a lot of ways! First of all, God’s messages were spoken to the Jews.

“It is true that some of them did not believe the message. But does this mean that God cannot be trusted, just because they did not have faith? No, indeed! God tells the truth, even if everyone else is a liar.

“The Scriptures say about God, ‘Your words will be proven true, and in court you will win your case.’ If our evil deeds show how right God is, then what can we say? Is it wrong for God to become angry and punish us? What a foolish thing to ask. But the answer is, “No.” Otherwise, how could God judge the world?”

And, God did judge. Moreover, they had a second and final chance,

…buried with Christ, in the likeness of His death

1Pe 4:1-, “So that as Jesus was put to death in the flesh, do you yourselves be of the same mind; for the death of the flesh puts an end to sin. So

that you may give the rest of your lives in the flesh, not to the desires of men, but to the purpose of God.

“Because for long enough, in times past, we have been living after the way of the Gentiles, given up to the desires of the flesh, to drinking and feasting and loose behaviour and unclean worship of images. And they are wondering that you no longer go with them in this violent wasting of life, and are saying evil things of you. But they will have to give an account of themselves to him who is ready to be the judge of the living and the dead.

“For this was the reason why the good news of Jesus was given even to the dead, so that they might be judged as men in the flesh, but might be living before God in the spirit. But the end of all things is near: so be serious in your behaviour and keep on the watch with prayer.”

ACT 3

In our Act, Act 5, it is written that the law could be seen as ‘shadows’ of things to come and that the prophets and the Psalms too, tell of Jesus’ sufferings, death and resurrection. History too, will repeat itself, Luk 17:24-, “The day of the Son of Man will be like lightning that flashes from one end of the sky to the other. First he must suffer a lot and be rejected by the people of his day.

 

“When the Son of Man comes again, the situation will be like the time of Noah. People were eating, drinking, and getting married until the day that Noah went into the ship. Then the flood destroyed all of them. The situation will also be like the time of Lot. People were eating, drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But on the day that Lot left Sodom, fire and sulphur rained from the sky and destroyed all of them.

 

“The day when the Son of Man is revealed will be like that. On that day, those who are on the roof should not come down to get their belongings out of their houses. Those who are in the field should not turn back. Remember Lot’s wife! Those who try to save their lives will lose them, and those who lose their lives will save them.”

 

What can one learn from their experiences to enable one to act in a similar way as did Noah and Lot, not forgetting Lot’s wife, whenever ‘our day’ comes? In Noah’s time, there were no laws given; people were governed by their conscious, Gen 4:6-, “The LORD asked Cain, ‘Why are you angry? Why does your face look sad? You know that if you do what is right, I will accept you. But if you don’t, sin is ready to attack you. That sin will want to control you, but you must control it.’” One can assume that they had an instruction concerning sacrifices and that Cain disobeyed the command in that he brought of the fruit that he grew as a gift.

 

God however, before He brought about the flood, did warn the people giving them an opportunity to repent. The same happened in the time of Lot, Gen 19:12-, “And the men said to Lot, ‘Have you anyone here besides yourself? Bring your sons-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and whatever you have in the city bring them out of this place. For we will destroy this place because great is the cry of them before the face of Jehovah. And Jehovah has sent us to destroy it.’

 

“And Lot went out and spoke with his sons-in-law, who married his daughters, and said, ‘Get up and get out of this place, for Jehovah will destroy this city.’ But he seemed as one that mocked to his sons-in-law.”

 

We, too, will be warned. Not only will we be warned we too, will be saved from God’s wrath, 1Th 5:9-, “For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, so that whether we watch or sleep we should live together with Him.

 

“Therefore comfort one another, and edify one another, even as you also do. And, brothers, we beseech you to know those who labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and who admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. Be at peace among yourselves.” Ponder on what does ‘comforting one another’ imply moreover, ‘edifying one another’. For this reason, ‘know’ those who labour among you.

 

Will we respond? According to our script not many will repent; it is written 2Th 2:7-, “For the mystery of lawlessness is already working, only he is now holding back until it comes out of the midst. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the breath of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming, whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. And with all deceit of unrighteousness in those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, so that they might be saved.

 

“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie, so that all those who do not believe the truth, but delight in unrighteousness, might be condemned.”

 

Noah lived to see the day God’s wrath was poured out in the time of the great earthquake, in the time of Peleg. Their sin was, to my mind, disbelieving the covenant God made, Gen 9:1-, “And God blessed Noah and his sons. And He said to them, ‘Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth. And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon the animals of the earth, upon every bird of the air, upon all that moves on the earth, and upon all the fish of the sea. Into your hand, they are delivered.

 

“Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green herb. But you shall not eat of flesh with the life in it, or the blood of it. And surely, the blood of your lives will I require. At the hand of every animal will I require it, and at the hand of man. At the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man. Whoever sheds man’s blood, man shall shed his blood, for He made man in the image of God. And you be fruitful and multiply. Bring forth abundantly in the earth, and increase in it.

 

“And God spoke to Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, Behold! I, even I, establish My covenant with you and with your seed after you; and with every living creature that is with you, of the birds, of the cattle, and of every animal of the earth with you; from all that go out from the ark, to every animal of the earth.

 

“And I will establish My covenant with you. Neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood. Neither shall there anymore be a flood to destroy the earth.’ And God said, ‘This is the token of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living creature with you, for everlasting generations: I set my rainbow in the cloud. And it shall be a token of a covenant between the earth and Me.

 

“And it shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud. And I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.  And the rainbow shall be in the cloud. And I will look upon it that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. And God said to Noah, This is the token of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is upon the earth.”

 

They apparently forgot why the rainbow appeared in the clouds. Worse still, we read that at that time, only 340 years after the flood, they worshipped  ‘other gods’, Jos 24:2, “Joshua said to all the people, ‘This is what the LORD God of Israel says: Long ago your ancestors, Terah and his sons Abraham and Nahor, lived on the other side of the Euphrates River and served other gods.’”

 

Jesus told ‘us’, Joh 14:5-, “Thomas said to him, ‘Lord, we don’t know where you’re going. So how can we know the way?’ Jesus answered him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one goes to the Father except through me.’” Add to this Rom 14:11-, “For it is written, As certainly as I live, declares the Lord, every knee will bow to me, and every tongue will praise God.’ Consequently, each of us will give an account of himself to God.”

 

If the above is true, and it is true, then the question arises, how is it possible for ‘church leaders’ to stretch out a hand of friendship to religions who do not accept Jesus as the only begotten Son of the Father? Their argument is, “Let us not concentrate on our differences but rather on that which agree. Surely we serve the same God.”

 

The God ‘we’ serve is the God that raised Jesus from among the dead, Act 13:32-, “And we bring you good tidings of the promise made unto the fathers, that God hath fulfilled the same unto our children, in that he raised up Jesus. As also it is written in the second psalm,’ Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.’ And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he hath spoken on this wise, ‘I will give you the holy and sure blessings of David.’”

 

Paul further encourages ‘us’ to have confidence in the greatness of God, Eph 1:17-, “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him.

 

“Having the eyes of your understanding enlightened; ye may now know what the hope of his calling is, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints. And what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places.

 

“Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come. And put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all. “

 

If Jesus is not part of one’s religion, then that one has no hope in sharing in the riches of the glory that God has in mind for his children. Joining hands with such people would be akin to serving other gods as in the time of Peleg, the time of the earthquake.

 

Would the following not apply in ‘our’ day? 2Ch 19:2, “And Jehu the son of Hanani, the seer, went out to meet Jehoshaphat, and said to him,’ Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate Jehovah? Therefore is wrath upon thee from Jehovah.‘”

 

Below is the sequence of events of Acts 3.

 

0 -- 3400 AM/ 3954 -- 544 BC

 

It appears that they doubted concerning this covenant, Gen 11:1-, “And the whole earth was of one lip and of one speech. And it happened, as they pulled up stakes from the east, they found a level valley in the land of Shinar. And they lived there. And each one said to his neighbour, ‘Come, let us make brick, and burning burn them.’ And they had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. And they said, ‘Come, let us build a city and a tower with its head in the heavens, and make a name for ourselves, that we not be scattered on the face/surfice of all the earth.’”

 

The reason for building the tower, I believe, was to have a safe haven should there be a flood, again. Gen 11:5- reads, “And Jehovah came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of Adam had built.

 

“And Jehovah said, ‘Behold, the people is one, and the lip one to all of them, and this they are beginning to do, and now all which they have purposed to do will not be restrained from them. Come, let Us go down and confuse their language so that they cannot understand one another’s speech.’

 

“And Jehovah scattered them from there, over the face of all the earth. And they stopped building the city. On account of this, its name is called Babel, because Jehovah confused the language of all the earth there. And Jehovah scattered them abroad from there on the face of all the earth.”

 

The above translation, LITV, tells it all in a few words. The whole earth was one continent, one lip. The earth had one water edge, one coastline to all of them and one language, one verbal communication. And Jehovah caused the earthquake, a continental shift, in the time of Peleg, 1996 years after Adam, and in this way, scattering them abroad, on the face of all the earth.

 

One will notice from the above chart that Peleg and Nahor did not make it beyond the earthquake in 1996 AM. I would put forward that they, many others and animals found themselves on some other continent or island, the earthquake being the continental shift.

 

The Hebrew word שׂפת  or, שׂפה  — ‘lip’ occurs 173 times in the Bible.

Side, 3 — and has reference to the seashore, Jdg 7:11- and 2Ch 8:17.

Bank, 10 — and has reference to a riverbank.

Brim, 8 — and has reference to the edge of a sea or cup, 1Ki 7:23-26.

Edge, 6 — and has reference to the border of material, Ex 36:10-11 and Eze 43:13.

Shore, 6 — and has reference to seashore, Gen 22:17, Ex 14:30 and 1Ki 9:26.

 

Therefore, The LITR Translation could propose a continental shift, “And Jehovah said, ‘Behold, the people is one, and the lip one to all of them, and this they are beginning to do, and now all which they have purposed to do will not be restrained from them. Come, let Us go down and confuse their language so that they cannot understand one another’s speech.’

And Jehovah scattered them from there, over the face of all the earth. And they stopped building the city. On account of this, its name is called Babel, because Jehovah confused the language of all the earth there. And Jehovah scattered them abroad from there on the face of all the earth.” I rest my case; how did the animals arrive on other continents and islands?
