Genesis 11 - At this time, there was only one language in all the earth, English. (just kidding) All the people were going to build a city and a tower reaching to the 'heaven' (sky scraper?) and God came down and put an end to it all by spreading them all out and causing them to speak different languages. This seems like quite a summary… I would sure like to go back to this time and see how God did this. Abram (Abraham's) dad was Terah who lived 205 years, then died.
Romans 11 - Gentiles are grafted in to the olive tree, but it's root is Israel, the chosen ones.
1 Timothy 3 - If you want to be a bishop, that's good. But there are some qualifications that you should meet: Above reproach, 'one woman man', sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent, gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money, have a well-managed household with submissive children, can't be a recent convert (recent is not defined here), well thought of by outsiders. (That's a lot of qualifications). Then there's deacons. They must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain, they must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. Also, their wives must be dignified, not slanderers, sober-minded, faithful in all things. Deacons must also be one-woman men with managed children.
Job 11 - According to the heading in my ESV Bible, this is Zophar talking back to Job saying that he actually deserves worse than he got. OUCH.
Psalms 11 - (v. 5) God's soul hates the wicked and the ONE who loves violence. (God hates people not just sin)
Proverbs 11 - (v. 4) Riches do not profit on the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death. Your money won't save you on the day of judgment, but only the righteousness of Christ will. (v. 20) THOSE of crooked heart are an abomination to the Lord (not the heart, but THOSE who have it) (v. 30) … whoever captures souls is wise ( I wonder if this verse is talking about 'soul winning' / evangelism)
Joshua 11 - Joshua was quite a killer. I can't even imagine how many men, women and children he killed. He obeyed the Lord in all that He commanded Moses. I don't know if I would be able to do that.
Isaiah 11 - Is this talking about Jesus? A shoot from the stump of Jesse?
Acts 11 - (v. 16) This verse was one that makes me wonder if water baptism is for modern day Christians. (Granted, I was baptized with water, just in case). (v. 26) First called Christians in Antioch.
