#la187 Day 86: How Was Jabez More Honourable Than His Brothers?


Hello, #la187 friend/family,

IJ asked a question in the whatsapp family…On what account was Jabez more honourable than his brothers as stated in 1 Chron 4::9 ?

I did a little research and observed the following.

Certainly, it wasn’t stated obviously, but we can notice that:

1. In Learning. Because we find that the families of the scribes dwelt in Jabez (1 Chron 2: 55), a city which it is likely took its name from him.

2. In piety, because we find here that he was a praying man. His inclination to devotion made him truly honourable, and by prayer he obtained those blessings from God which added much to his honour. Mathew Henry leaves us with this quote, “The way to be truly great is to be truly good and to pray much.”

Did you know that The Books of Chronicles were written by Ezra?

We love you,
