...controversial; but the final verse is certainly a separate comment on the incident as being the origin of an otherwise unknown food taboo. ( 33:1–20 ) The reconciliation between Jacob and his wronged brother resolves the tension built up in 32:1–21 . The chapter is a riot of deferential bowings and honorific expressions (‘my lord’, ‘your servant’) in oriental fashion on the part of Jacob and his household and magnanimity and solicitous concern on the part of Esau. Esau's emotional welcome of Jacob signifies his complete forgiveness, after so many years, of a...

The ‘brothers’, it is implied, are in no way in control of this situation, but recognize its potential danger: Saul is packed off hurriedly to his home town of Tarsus ( v. 30; cf. Gal 1:21 ), still unknown by sight to most members of the Judean churches ( Gal 1:22 ). 9:31 Summary and Transition A final summary verse signals a return to the main narrative thread. Luke reminds us that much is happening of which his narrative only gives us tantalizing glimpses. He has shown us scattered groups of ‘brothers’ or ‘disciples’ (both men and...

Jordan's skills as a singer and showman developed and the band's repertoire grew with skilled arrangements provided by Wild Bill Davis and Bill Doggett, among others.

...the 1950s, he turned to music in his teens, learning guitar and performing with his brother, Carson. He landed a record contract in 1964 with MGM, then moved to Warner Bros. two years later, mostly working as an arranger and a session musician. In 1966 he recorded on the Byrds album Fifth Dimension (Columbia) and began his work on Smile . His songs such as “Surf's Up” and “Wind Chimes” impressed Wilson, who championed Parks's work. However, due to strife within the band—caused partly by objections to such songs as “Cabinessence”— Smile went unreleased...

It doesn’t matter to them—if they haven’t made a deal on how much rent they’ll have to pay to the rickshaw agency. The members of this band of brothers generally have two hopes: either to be hired full time, or to buy a rickshaw. In the latter case it doesn’t make much different if they work for a family full time or get their fares in the streets; the rickshaw is their own Compare to the first group to all those who are...

The American excavators found few small objects in proportion to the scale of the site, a lack they attributed to the short life of the city and its orderly abandonment following Sargon's death, when most of the inhabitants moved to the new capital of Nineveh (Loud and Altman, 1938 ). Nevertheless, the site has produced a variety of miscellaneous objects, including carved ivories (similar to ones found at Nimrud, Arslan Tash, and Samaria), fragments of embossed bronze door bands (comparable to the ones...

... 1865 , his onshore duties were light enough for him to resume composition: the symphony was given its premiere on 31 December 1865 by the orchestra of Balakirev's Free Music School. Rimsky-Korsakov soon completed further symphonic pieces. Among the most influential were the oriental suite Antar (also known as the Second Symphony) and the picturesque fantasy Sadko : these firmly established Rimsky-Korsakov as a symphonist. However, 15 operas were to follow. The first, Pskovityanka (‘The Maid of Pskov’, 1871 ), is a historical drama with its genesis in...
