Scripture:

Solomon rebuilt the cities that Hiram had given to him, and settled the people of Israel there. – 2 Chronicles 8:2

Observation:

I love this word – REBUILT. It connotes courage and determination. In other books it was told that the cities were 20, and so this land that Solomon rebuilt is not just a small town, these are unproductive cities. So I imagine how tiring and painful it was. but as it was said, he settled the people of Israel there – so it means that it was rebuilt beautifully. From being unproductive land to worth living in towns.Read More »

But I guess the most probable reason is because they didn’t really get what those plagues meant. And that’s simply because they don’t know God, they know have personal relationship with the God who was so faithful with them.Read More »
