Some of these don't make sense to me at all as referring to reincarnation, but I'll pull a few of them and give you my opinion. If there are any
specific verses in your last link that you would like addressed, let me know.
Gen 9:6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
I'm not sure how someone interprets this verse as being related to reincarnation, but maybe study of the previous verse will help to make it more
5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's
brother will I require the life of man.
Job 8 (Reincarnation in Chapter 8)
If we're talking about Job 8:8-9, this is Bildad speaking and directing Job to ancient traditions where the former generations would ask their fathers
what they learned. Bildad is merely saying that compared to former generations, they were born only yesterday and know nothing.
8 For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers:
9 (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow
Psa 90:1 (Reincarnation verses 1-6)
90 Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.
4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.
6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
I'm not sure how this relates to reincarnation. These verses state that God has been around since the beginning of time and a human life is short in
comparison. A human life to God is like one day where it's young and fresh in the morning and old, tired and crippled by evening. Verse 3 is merely
saying, "return, ye children of men" away from destruction.
Prov 8:22 (Reincarnation 22-31)
Proverbs 8:22-31. Actually let's look at the verses further down to get a better understanding.
30 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;
31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.
32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.
33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.
36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
This is all prophecy of Jesus to come. The Old Testament is FILLED with prophecy about the coming of Jesus and his purpose for coming to earth.
Jesus always said that he was the only one who had seen God and that he had been there with him from the beginning and before the creation of the
world or men.
