Englishmen look like and behave like Englishmen. I comment on Genesis chapter 10 and verse 5

Scripture, Genesis chapter 10 and verse 5;

Of these were the islands of the nations divided in their lands, everyone after his language, after their families, in their nations.

Englishmen look like and behave like Englishmen

From verse 5 here we see that each country has its people and its language, and that a country is built up by families. A nation has its own personality and its own unique people and its special language. Englishmen look like and behave like Englishmen and Frenchmen like Frenchmen, Chinese like Chinese, etc. Or for us Norwegians, we cannot become Swedish or a Swede Norwegian. But of course gray areas are always there.

God has said it for the good of all

This is how God created it for strength and unity, it is not a strength for a nations to interfere in marriage. It may seem old-fashioned and out of date, but God has said it for the good of all, both for the individual and the country. Yet God has also said that we should take care of refugees, widows, and orphans, they are not an expense or a danger, but a resource that brings God’s blessing on the nation.

The family

Language and togetherness in groups are crucial for peace and coexistence. And the building material that keeps everything firm and in balance is the family. What is a family; children and someone who takes care of them, father and child, mother, and child, but the most common constellation is father and mother who take care of and look after their child or children. Strong families mean strong countries. And those who do not have children are also children of someone or have been taken care of by someone. Regardless of the composition of people who stay together, it is a family and will strengthen itself and the country.
