Thanks alot. GOD shall bless you.


Thank you but is this christian or catholic because im looking for christian


Hi Seokjin, I'm following the Protestant canon, and mainly referring to the NKJV, NIV, NRSV, ESV, NLT and NASB translations.


Abimelech - WTF
this whole religion thing is ****. Why do i need to know what happened before i was born.


Thank you for doing this. I am reading the bible for the first time cover to cover and this really helps me along the way.


Great to hear, Courtney. I'm glad to be of assistance. Keep going, it's worth it!


I often wondered what ever happened to Ishmael since he had separated from his father Abraham..sad event


The Lord is faithful and kept His promise and Isaac was born to Abraham & Sarah.
He also heard Ishmael crying and cared for him.
