    Hi Charisma - You still looking at this?
    Gen10:25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.

    So the "earth ('erets - H776) was divided" and Peleg was Generation#15 in the pedigree of Jesus,
    but what can we deduce of brother Joktan and his 13 sons?

    Hi dux,

    Did you look at the picture?


    If you were living in Jacob's day, when Eber died, you would have been extremely aware of his age, and that his early life had overlapped with Noah's and Abraham's - five or six geneartions later - and then some. None of his line of firstborn descendants survived him.

    He truly bridged from one covenant to the next.

    Peleg and Joktan are interesting in their day, but Eber is far more interesting, because he gave his name to Abraham's descendants through Isaac - in whom 'the promise' (of eternal inheritance) was called.
    16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

    Ephesians 3

    Picture? the graph, you mean? Looks good to me.
    So the "earth ('erets - H776) was divided" and Peleg was Generation#15 in the pedigree of Jesus, but what can we deduce of brother Joktan and his 13 sons?

    Two Covenants from Gal 4:24, or were you referring to the token "Rainbow"?

    'Hemisphere' not likely, IMO... rather, the 'dividing' of the waters (red sea/jordan) and the 'rightly dividing' of God's Word. Maybe 'follow Peleg instead of his brother'? 1Chr 1:19

    Gen9:13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

    Blessings! Have a good one..

    Hi dux,

    Yes, I was meaning God's covenant with Noah and God's covenant with Abraham.
    16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

    So Eber could've met personally with Abram and passed along info that he'd received personally from Noah -- that what you mean, Charisma? Something like "from the horses mouth", you think?
