camels -- was in common use among the Jews & heathen nations at this time in this scripture, Arabian camel or one-humped camel, "camelus arabicus." Arabs call it - heirie & they are careful to see that the hump is in good condition before they journey long ways.

I HAVE TO SHARE THIS: I do not like for people to use scriptures that teach WEALTH/RICHES is for everybody ALL AT the same time... a. the poor -- Matthew 5:3; 11:5; 19:21; Mark 10:21; Luke 14:13; I Cor 13:3; Revelation 13:16 "watch her you treat the poor or less fortunate for one day you will have to stand before GOD." b. Parable of Talents? Matthew 25:15-30 -- GOD's Possession & we are only stewards & HE is watching how we handle HIS GOODS. IT's HIS & HE can give it to whom HE pleases. c. Your gift could bring you before great men -- Proverbs 18:16...the end
