Year of Scripture – Day 10

Genesis 30 – Genesis 31

I’m not sure if we should feel sorry for Jacob or not. One cannot help but wonder if he realizes that he is being used as a pawn between Leah and Rachel to have children. Add into the mix, their two servants, Zilpah and Bilhah, and you might wonder how Jacob got any sleep! All in all, we end up with the birth of the twelve tribes of Israel, which we’ll get to soon enough, but for now we know that God’s blessing to Abraham is about to be realized as Jacob is now the father of:

Reuben
Simeon
Levi
Judah
Dan
Naphtali
Gad
Asher
Issachar
Zebulun
Joseph
Benjamin
And we can’t forget Dinah!

More to read for tomorrow! See you after we read on to Genesis 32-34

Peace,
Pastor Bailey
