GENESIS 34-50 – ALEXANDER SCOURBY


A certain structure of Genesis can be seen in the fact that eleven times the Hebrew word “toledoth” (generations, histories) is mentioned as conclusion – or introduction – of a report.

Similar stereotype statements are known from cuneiform tables from Mesopotamia.

The word “toledoth” occurs in the following passages:

  1. Chapter 2:4: These are the histories of the heavens and the earth.
  2. Chapter 5:1: This is the book of Adam’s generations
  3. Chapter 6:9: This is the history of Noah
  4. Chapter 10:1: These are the generations of the sons of Noah
  5. Chapter 11:10: These are the generations of Shem
  6. Chapter 11:27: These are the generations of Terah
  7. Chapter 25:12: These are the generations of Ishmael
  8. Chapter 25:19: These are the generations of IsaacChapter 36:1: These are the generations of Esau
  9. Chapter 36:9: These are the generations of Esau
  10. Chapter 37:2: These are the generations of Jacob
