This chapter deals with Worship: the holy temple and the way for atonement.
Worship shall be holy set apart from our everyday affairs. Blood is the way of atonement to take away the transgressions, of all of their sins. Special clothes and special places of worship. We need to dress differently for our day with the LORD? Priests were to be atoned for. (This command is celebrated in the holiday Yom Kippur.)
1 Chronicles 5
I don't get this I Chronicles Thing, the list of names are killing me. So my wife and I looked them up together.
"There may be many gaps in Samuel and Kings which Chronicles has not filled." (Eerdman's Commentary)
War and violence are part of God's story. I will bring their deeds upon their heads, God said. He will not forget or forgive his people lightly. For they are a nation that should have stayed true in the covenant to God but did not.
3 But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. 4 Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving.
We husbands need to stay true to our words, for these words of truth will wash our wife with renewal. Also if we say we are not going to smoke than don't for no reason smoke, if we say we are not going to drink than don't drink, for you are harming your wife in your ways. Wives though should not try to oppress their husbands because they respect their husbands. That way they are both free to love the LORD our GOD who brought us out of Israel.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.
