1 Chronicles 1-7 the Sister of Huppim and Shuppim

The first seven chapters of Chronicles is just begats.  Not that painful to get through.
Nothing new or interesting to report.  

Huppim and Shuppim (from 7:15) is going to be the name of my porn music cover band!

That is all.


  1. Hmmm...these Huppim and Shuppim might be a lead on yet another Bible inconsistency?

  2. Ughhhhh chronicles.

    There is very little new content in 1st Chronicles that isn't lists o names. I would highly recommend using an annotated text that footnotes the passages that are duplicated from Samuel/Kings, so you can skip rereading.

    Still, it's fascinating to see how the chronicler whitewashes David's story. Don't look for the story of Uriah and Bathsheeba, or any other sordid tales. We get only Good King David.

    2nd Chronicles has more "new" content (most of the Judean kings are expanded on) but most of it is dull, artificial, repetitive war stories crafted by the c-ler.

    Ughhhh, Chronicles, you are the worst.
