I had a question on these verses. Abraham 3:4 - "And the Lord said unto me, by the Urim and Thummim, that Kolob was after the manner of the Lord, according to its times and seasons in the revolutions thereof; that one revolution was a day unto the Lord, after his manner of reckoning, it being one thousand years according to the time appointed unto that whereon thou standest. This is the reckoning of the Lord’s time, according to the reckoning of Kolob." Abraham 3:5 - "And the Lord said unto me: The planet which is the lesser light, lesser than that which is to rule the day, even the night, is above or greater than that upon which thou standest in point of reckoning, for it moveth in order more slow; this is in order because it standeth above the earth upon which thou standest, therefore the reckoning of its time is not so many as to its number of days, and of months, and of years." What is the context and meaning? Thanks, Jim
I had a few questions on this passage in Moses. Moses 8:25-26 says, "And it repented Noah, and his heart was pained that the Lord had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at the heart. And the Lord said: I will destroy man whom I have created, from the face of the earth, both man and beast, and the creeping things, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth Noah that I have created them, and that I have made them; and he hath called upon me; for they have sought his life." This is quite a bit different than what the Bible teaches in Genesis 6. Verses 5-8 - "And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord [the ESV uses the word "regretted"] that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me [the ESV uses the phrase "I am sorry"] that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord." Verses 11-13 - "The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth." The reasons for the flood had no bearing on Noah. But the Religion 327 - Pearl of Great Price Student Manual seems to indicate that the biblical account is false. Moses 8:25. "It Repented Noah, and His Heart Was Pained" Note that this verse is an important and inspired correction to Genesis 6:6, which reads: "And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart." The Hebrew word used here, and translated repented in the Bible, is nacham (naw-kham), which literally means "to sigh," "to breathe strongly," "to be sorry," "to pity." Did God really destroy the earth with a flood because of how Noah was feeling and the threats on his life or was it because of how great the earth's wickedness was and because it pained God at His heart? The POGP says, "... and he hath called upon me; for they have sought his life." Does this mean his wife, three sons, and their wives were not in danger of being killed? Thanks, Jim
I had some questions on these verses. Abraham 1:11 - "Now, this priest had offered upon this altar three virgins at one time, who were the daughters of Onitah, one of the royal descent directly from the loins of Ham." What does it mean that royalty existed in the loins of Ham but not in the sons of Noah's other sons? Abraham 1:20,23-24 - "And the Lord broke down the altar of Elkenah, and of the gods of the land, and utterly destroyed them, and smote the priest that he died; and there was great mourning in Chaldea, and also in the court of Pharaoh; which Pharaoh signifies king by royal blood ... The land of Egypt being first discovered by a woman, who was the daughter of Ham, and the daughter of Egyptus, which in the Chaldean signifies Egypt, which signifies that which is forbidden; When this woman discovered the land it was under water, who afterward settled her sons in it; and thus, from Ham, sprang that race which preserved the curse in the land." How does Pharaoh signify king by royal blood when Egypt signifies that which is forbidden? How was the curse preserved in Ham when 1:11 says royalty came from the loins of Ham? Thanks, Jim
