Mysterious Accounts From The Bible And Their Lessons by ApostleAnarchy(m): 9:30pm On Jun 13, 2020
I try my best to read through chapters of the Bible over again, all in a bid to get a divine understanding of some seeming mysteries.
For instance: 2nd Kings Chapter3 v 26; When the king of Moab realized he was losing the battle, he and 700 swordsmen tried to break through and attack the king of Edom, but they failed. 27 So he took his firstborn son, who was to succeed him as king, and offered him up as a burnt sacrifice on the wall. There was an outburst of divine anger against Israel, so they broke off the attack and returned to their homeland. (NET). Every story in the bible comes with a lesson even though some might seem confusing at first.

Feel free to share mysterious accounts from the bible and their possible lessons.

Happy Sunday

ApostleAnarchy:
I ]There was a war between the isrealites and a certain people and as we all know, God always went forth with the Isrealites in battles whenever they sought him but on this Occasion, in the midst of the battle, the king of the Isrealites' enemies sacrificed his son to the deity he believed in and as the bible said, God's wrath suddenly waxed hot against his people, the Isrealites [/i]
You read the story, so why not provide us the exact details of where the entire story is from?

2 kings 3, details the war up until the King of Moab sacrificing his first son the walls of the city, but does not speak of God's wrath turning on israel as a result of said sacrifice as you assert.

thanks
you read the story yourself, didn't you? You should be able to point us directly to the story you are referring to.

I just read the entire chapter of 2Kings 3, and it is not the same story you told.

That's much better!

I am guessing another possible issue is that yiu read the bible in the wrong translation. Please stay clear of the KJV. It was written for The church of England and written with English translation that existed during Shakespeare's time in mind.

Please pick up and read from a translation tailored for those of this generation, particularly those with English as a second language like English Standard Version and even better Easy-to-read Version.
