Biynah-yada Part 1 of 3
In Esther 1:13, we read of a kingdom whose wise men and advisers “knew the times.” In 1 Chronicles 12:32, however, the Bible tells of another kingdom whose wise men and advisers “had understanding of the times.” One set “knew the times,” the other understood “the times.” Any difference? One set comprised secular or natural advisers, the others were spiritual in their operation; one set worked with their learned heads, the other set had much more, working from their inspired spirit. Each of them was crucial to their kingdom in their own way. We need both now.
