    I enjoy listening to the commentary

  5. Jonathan Blair
    I really enjoy the Faithlife Study Bible. While not a complete Bible per se, it is a good commentary when used alongside a full Bible. I did notice one thing: for Deuteronomy 23:2, regarding "the tenth generation" comment, I disagree about it being "probably hyperbole for 'forever'". Judah and Tamar's sons, Perez and Zerah, were illegitimate as Judah was not married to Tamar, who Judah believed to be a prostitute and didn't recognize as his daughter-in-law. Judah -> 1st generation is Perez -> 2nd generation is Hezron -> 3rd generation is Ram -> 4th generation is Amminadab -> 5th generation is Nahshon -> 6th generation is Salma -> 7th generation is Boaz -> 8th generation is Obed -> 9th generation is Jesse -> 10th generation, and the first eligible to serve the assembly, is David. So it's not really hyperbole, it is literally to the tenth generation. Note that Deuteronomy 23:2 (Lexham English Bible) reads: "An illegitimate child may not come into the assembly of Yahweh; even to the tenth generation none of his descendants* may come into the assembly of Yahweh." The term "of his descendants" is literally "to him", meaning that the verse can read "An illegitimate child may not come into the assembly of Yahweh; even to the tenth generation none to him may come into the assembly of Yahweh." Literally it means up to the tenth generation. David literally was the first of Judah's line who was eligible to be king, which is why Saul, a Benjaminite, was picked when the Israelites demanded a king to keep David's rule clear as to whom of Judah's line was the kingly line. Moses writes in Deuteronomy 17:14-20 about how a king was to behave. God planned for David to sit the throne, but Israel was impatient and demanded a king.
