A few things got lost in my re-recording of the podcast.
I realized that last week we did not discuss Jacob’s name change to Israel. So sorry…but we’ll get to it next year. Just know that from here on in, the text uses both Jacob and Israel for the same person. The family tree of Jacob’s offspring is listed below.
Jacob’s children by each wife
Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun and Dinah
Zilpah (Leah’s servant):
Bilha (Rachel’s servant)
Jacob’s Children’s Birth Order:
Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naftali,
Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Dinah, Joseph, Benjamin
The Psalm, Psalm 118, was a modified translation of the JPS translation.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
