Men and Women of the Bible ~ Blogging through the Alphabet (K)

Blogging through the Alphabet Men and Women of the Bible

Since little is known about them, I’m going to highlight two women in the Bible whose names start with K.

Kezia: “Cassia (sweet scented spice)”

Kezia was the second born daughter of Job after he went through his great suffering.

Keren-happuch: “Horn of the face paint (cosmetic box)”

Keren-happuch is the third born daughter of Job after his sufferings.

These girls along with their older sister (Jemima) are described as the most beautiful girls in the land.

Job 42: 14-15~ And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Keren-happuch. And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.

Korah: “Ice, Hail”

Korah is related to Moses from his father’s side (some say uncle, some say cousin). Korah is remembered for his rebellious acts against Moses. God did send fire from Heaven and consumed him and all who rebelled with him (250 people total).

Numbers 16: 1-2 ~ Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men: And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown.

Numbers 16: 19-21 ~ And Korah gathered all the congregation against them unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the glory of the Lord appeared unto all the congregation. And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment.

I am linking up with Annette and Amanda.
