The Facts (Chapter number: Verse)
23:22 - Eleazar had no sons, only daughters. Their kindred, the sons of Kish, married them.
1 Chronicles 24 - No mention of any women.
25:5 - God had given Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.
1 Chronicles 26 - No mention of any women.
1 Chronicles 27 - No mention of any women.
1 Chronicles 28 - No mention of any women.
1 Chronicles 29 - No mention of any women.
Okay, seriously, this is ridiculous. The entire Chronicles so far has almost been nothing but a solid block of names. And yet, there are no women mentioned past the few mothers that were mentioned earlier on. It's just page after page of sons this and father's that and king this and leaders that. All of these chapters I've gone through and the only real bulk of women is in only the first 4 chapters. Oddly enough, the Bible seems to think naming the mothers serves no purpose and basically stops completely after that, even though every chapter after is still massive amounts of genealogy.
I... I honestly just don't understand. It really looks like women just stop existing. It's a world overrun by men. I imagine it would be like the planet of men in Saber Marionette J, minus the badass chick robots and lacking the entertainment value. Actually, now that I think about it, the two are actually very similar. A world filled with men who view women simply as objects and status symbols or as laborers.
But I would pick watching Saber Marionette J over reading the Bible any day.
So it looks like we're heading into 2 Chronicles. I hope it's not as disappointing as 1 Chronicles.
Friday; 2 Chronicles ?-?
