B90 Day 3

I am still reading today's selection (still in Genesis), but fully anticipate being able to finish, I wanted to post before I forget.

I love, love, love chpt. 32 vs. 11&12 when Jacob prays to God, he asks for safety, he confesses his fear, & then he reassures himself with God's promise.

It has always bothered me how Jacob responded to Dinah's rape.  He ends chpt. 34 worrying about himself, his possessions, and his household, not about his daughter who had been so horribly treated. Also Simeon and Levi remind me of James and John of the New Testament and what a change comes over Levi (become the priestly tribe) and John (becomes the disciple whom Jesus loved).
