I-IX: The first nine chapters perfectly exemplify the endless genealogies that Paul tells us to avoid in 1Tim.i.4 and Tit.iii.9.

i.25: Shortest verse in the Old Testament in case you were wondering.

i.32: This verse refers to Keturah as Abraham's concubine when Gen.xxv.1 says that she was his wife.

i.43: For some reason the editors copied the verse of Gen.xxxvi.31.

xi.5: There is here recorded the name Bealiah, which is translated as 'Yah is Baal'.

xii.8: The Gadites had faces like lions and could run as fast as deer on the mountains.

xiii.10: As already mentioned in 1 King{, Uzza was electrocuted by the ark.

xiv.15: The use of omens to...
