Scott and I have been reading through the Bible in a year on the way to work each morning. (It’s a highlight of my day to carpool with my man!)
We’re in Genesis right now and have laughed pretty hard at some of the names.
I laugh even harder at the way Scott pronounces them, like his mother tongue is Arabic or something.
When reading Genesis 5, we came upon the name Mahalalel, Scott called out like a Middle-Eastern father, “Mahalalel! Mahalalel! Come for dinner!”
Today, we read about Jacob and Esau — and the lesson about how to take lying to a whole ‘nother level — in Genesis 27. We’re reading a Bible that puts everything chronologically, so it puts Genesis and Chronicles together, it took us to 1 Chronicles 1 where we found another great name:
No, I’m not kidding you.
“Mahalalel, Oholibamah, and Steve! Come down for dinner!” Scott says laughing.
I think we’ve landed on our kids’ names.
