It seems that concrete descriptions of god’s saving acts were favored much more than general statements, not only in Israelite family religion, but also in the family religions of the greater Northwest Semitic region.—Family and Household Religion in Ancient Israel and the Levant, page 304

<idle musing>
Would that it were so in our testimonies now! We settle for generalities instead of specific examples of how God intervenes. Could it be because we don't really believe God still performs saving acts? The Israelites believed!
