Thanks for your great work on this project. I regularly turn to this for a class that I am teaching at our church. One tweak to this summary for your consideration. I do believe that Asahel was Joab's brother and not his son (2 Sam. 2:18).
Thanks Again!


Thanks for your encouragement, Matt

Yes, you're right about Asahel - I misread! I've changed the summary here in the database. Well spotted!


How encouraging when wondering what to do or where to to go ....ask the Lord.
2 In the course of time, David enquired of the Lord. ‘Shall I go up to one of the towns of Judah?’ he asked.The Lord said, ‘Go up.’David asked, ‘Where shall I go?’ ‘To Hebron,’ the Lord answered.
