How Do I Miss These Things?

Did you know that Joab was David's Nephew? Usually I don't get much from genealogies, but tonight while reading from Chronicles it finally dawned on me that Joab and David were related.

Sometimes I'm a little slow.

12 Boaz fathered Obed, Obed fathered Jesse. 13 Jesse fathered Eliab his firstborn, Abinadab the second, Shimea the third, 14 Nethanel the fourth, Raddai the fifth, 15 Ozem the sixth, David the seventh. 16 And their sisters were Zeruiah and Abigail. The sons of Zeruiah: Abishai, Joab, and Asahel, three. 17 Abigail bore Amasa, and the father of Amasa was Jether the Ishmaelite.
