1 Chronicles 8
-The genealogy of the tribe of Benjamin is noted in this chapter of Scripture. There were close ties with this tribe to Judah. They were in close proximity as the land was divided up. This is why we see in the text that many of them co-mingled and lived in Jerusalem of Judah. In fact, in the beginning Benjamin laid claim to the city of Jerusalem as their land of inheritance (Joshua 12:11-28). The line of Saul, the nation of Israel’s first king, is mentioned briefly in this section as a son from the line of Benjamin (1 Chronicles 8:33). In the time of the division, the tribe of Benjamin was also the only loyal tribe to the line of David and the Southern Kingdom commonly known as Judah (1 Kings 12:21). Judah and Benjamin were close knit together through thick and thin. *Application* It is interesting what draws us together sometimes. Circumstances and Divine Providence often play more of a role than we realize. Think about how God has coordinated you with certain entities and people in your life. He will use these connections according to His Divine will and purpose. Stay connected! Go with His Spirit’s flow!
