So my family* is going through the Book of Acts in the Bible. At one point, Paul and his companions stop for a while at the home of Philip the Evangelist, who has four unmarried daughters who all prophesy.
Well, we use a lot of different Biblical translations simultaneously in our family scripture reading,** and the version that was being read through at that moment rendered it “four unmarried daughters who had the gift of prophecy”.
My oldest recognized the parallel in the family structure, and said “Well. That would be hectic.”
So it would, kid. So it would.
* Which, in case you don’t know (and this is necessary information for the story), is me, my wife, and our four daughters.
** Yeah, i know, i just started J. Reuben Clark, Jr. spinning in his grave again. Not to worry—he’ll stop eventually.
