Divrei Hayamim I – Twenty-Five: Heman

I feel like I keep using this disclaimer in this book, but this chapter was heavy in words without being particularly deep in inspiring content. This was my best shot. “All these were sons of Heman, the king’s seer, in words of God to raise the horn, and God gave Heman fourteen sons and three daughters (Chronicles I 25:5).” This is different from the usual language of X begat Y and Z because it directly mentions God’s influence on Heman’s children. I’m taking this to mean that it indicates something important and out of the ordinary. Does it mean that God intervened in order for Heman to have these seventeen children? Or that He impacted them in some way, beyond the ‘usual?’ I don’t know the answer, but I always like stories of people who God has a direct relationship with, and influences in big and small ways.
