5. By the Rivers of Babylon

Summary: Here is an example of context giving meaning: Genesis, Chapter 1. Since language is time-bound, study the language used in this chapter. Look for other passages using the same language and style. Look at Psalm 137 to find the language context for the Genesis 1 creation story. That story tells those who have lost everything that God can create beauty out of nothing. “You are born in the image of that creative God” – a message needed for those in captivity in Babylon.
