Jacob had a son named Dan, and that would be the logical D topic for today, but I have decided to save Dan's story for later in the month.
The Bible tells us Jacob's only daughter, Dinah, was born to Leah after Rachel bargained the mandrakes for sex with Jacob. (See the cheat sheet). She had six full blooded brothers when she was born and four half brothers. The only girl born into a dysfunctional family with ten older brothers.
Girls then, as in some countries now, were not valued. It was more honorable to have a son. This is proven in the record of Dinah's birth. There is no statement as to what her name means or what her mother said when she was born. Neither is there anything recorded as to what her father or Moses said to her or about her before they died.
On the surface, it looks like her life really didn't matter to anyone.
But it did. And her life and the events of her life effected two of her brothers and their relationship with their father and you will learn more about those events later this month
Genesis 30; 34 for Dinah's story.
