Thank you for your excellent answers to 142, 143, 144 and 145.
You are MOST welcome. I was just thinking about what a blessing your thread is. I Sooooooooo need to become familiar with the Bible, and this is such a big help, and a HUGE blessing to me. And thank you for bearing with me as i thinkout loud in some of my answers here and in the Chapter A Day thread...i reeeeeally think out loud there. Thank you for graciously bearing with me...that's how i learn and process what i'm reading.
You have a blessing of a ministry in both of these threads.
God bless you.
152/ Why did the king of the Ammonites cut off the clothes and beards of King David's messengers ?
...he foolishly listened to his princes who said that David had sent spies under the guise of offering comfort to Hanun because Hanun's father had just died. So in return, Hanun insults David and the men that were sent in the most shameful way and sends them back.
