Notes: Genesis 49, Job 42:1-9

Genesis 49Job 42:1-9

Bible Narrative Project

Noah, Abraham, Isaac, and now Jacob all deliver prophecies about their sons’ descendants, based on the behavior of their sons. Not that their descendants would be punished/rewarded for their sons’ behavior–but … generational cycles are hard to break. “Like father, like son.” Early psychologists.

Job: Job uses words recommended by Elihu, who is not rebuked w/ the rest of Job’s friends, who spoke wrongly and God now has Job pray for ‘them’.
