Before we get into the main topic, we should mention:NOT Beyond Belief
Have you ever watched an episode of Columbo (starring Peter Falk) and some other movies or whatever on TV and in theaters where it starts out with the villain doing some evil deed against someone or engaging in some thieving or destructive shenanigan, then lying about it when questioned by others, until perceptive interrogators and researchers discover and prove the culprit did what he or she did? How many episodes of Perry Mason on TV have you seen?
Televised episodes of forensic investigation by police and DNA detectives at times is quite informative and intriguing, even though some bad guys and gals who did dastardly deeds lie very convincingly and are misbelieved for a long time until proven wrong, exposed, and punished.
Many things you and I have read in the Bible are absolutely bizarre and wild, but claimed to be true by both Jews (pertaining to their Old Testament) and Christians (regarding both the Old and New Testaments).
Until proven wrong beyond the shadow of a doubt (and note that I said: beyond the shadow of a doubt), they should be believed - no matter how unusual or uncommon they were in terms of how things usually happen. It is safe to assume that what is purported and alleged to be actual Biblical history is really valid and did occur, even though none of us were there at the time to say yay or nay about it as eyewitnesses.
Oh, by the way, much of what is presumed to be religious (for example, the tale or fable of Hannuka, genies in bottles, an angel giving some guy out west gold tablets, the apocrypha of cultic catholics and anglicans and episcopalians, certain american indians legends and myths, etc.) should be disbelieved until proven otherwise.....exactly the OPPOSITE in stark contrast to what is claimed to be bonafide Biblical history (recorded in the Sacred 66).
Now, on to the following.
Much of our casual parting salutations to those of the general public we have talked to and will talk to rightly involves a robust fulfillment of the following:
Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."
Ge 9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.
Ge 9:7 And you, be fruitful and multiply, bring forth abundantly on the earth and multiply in it."
Ge 17:20 As for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold, I will bless him and make him fruitful and multiply him exceedingly; he shall be the father of twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.
Ge 22:17 I will indeed bless you, and I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore. And your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies,
Ge 26:4 I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give to your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall bless themselves:
Ge 48:4 and said to me, 'Behold, I will make you fruitful, and multiply you, and I will make of you a company of peoples, and will give this land to your descendants after you for an everlasting possession.'
Exo 32:13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou didst swear by thine own self, and didst say to them, 'I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have promised I will give to your descendants, and they shall inherit it for ever.'"
Remember, to multiply is the Jewish thing to do.
Neh 9:23 Thou didst multiply their descendants as the stars of heaven, and thou didst bring them into the land which thou hadst told their fathers to enter and possess.
Jer 33:22 As the host of heaven cannot be numbered and the sands of the sea cannot be measured, so I will multiply the descendants of David my servant, and the Levitical priests who minister to me."
Hos 4:10 They shall eat, but not be satisfied; they shall play the harlot, but not multiply; because they have forsaken the LORD to cherish whoredom.
1Tim 2:15 Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with modesty.
1Ti 5:14 So I would have younger women marry, bear children, manage their house, and give the enemy no cause to revile us.
Thus, we heartily say goodbye with the words:
"Have a good one."
It's a subtle way of actually saying: "Have a great fk."
Multiple-wife polygamists of different occupations would have sundry variations of the same:
CARPENTERS: "Nail 'em good and pound 'em hard."
WALLPAPERERS and FLOOR INSTALLERS: "Strip 'em bare and lay 'em straight."
SPARKPLUG MECHANICS: "Screw 'em tight and make 'em purr."
WELL DIGGERS: "Dig 'em deep and hear 'em gush."
ELECTRICIANS: "Plug it in and give 'em juice."
BAKERS: "Knead the dough and make it rise."
CAR RACERS: "Run 'em hard and cross the line."
BASEBALL PLAYERS: "Whack 'em good and make 'em score."
TRAP-SETTERS: "Find the holes and place it in."
TRUCKERS: "Lay 'em down and drive 'em hard."
GOLFERS: "Hit it square and drive it far."
NUCLEAR REACTOR TECHNICIAN: "Pull the rod and heat 'em up."
DAIRY FARMERS: "Squeeze the tits and squirt the milk."
And that is only from man to man.
WOMAN GAMBLING MATRON: "Work the slot and fill the sack."
NEEDLE THREADERS: "Find the hole and guide it in."
GAS-STATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR GALS: "Grab the hose and stick it in,
pump till full, then turn it on."
LAUNDRY LADIES: "Rub it good then blow it dry."
