Morning: Psalms 109–111 Psalms 109–111 (Listen) Help Me, O Lord My God To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. 109 Be not silent, O God of my praise!2 For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me, speaking against me with lying tongues.3 They encircle me with words of hate, and attack me without cause.4 In return for my love they accuse me, but I give myself to prayer.15 So they reward me evil for good, and hatred for my love. 6 Appoint a wicked man against him; let an accuser stand at his right hand.7 When he is tried, let him come forth guilty; let his prayer be counted as sin!8 May his days be few; may another take his office!9 May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow!10 May his children wander about and beg, seeking food far from the ruins they inhabit!11 May the creditor seize all that he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his toil!12 Let there be none to extend kindness to him, nor any to pity his fatherless children!13 May his posterity be cut off; may his name be blotted out in the second generation!14 May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD, and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out!15 Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth! 16 For he did not remember to show kindness, but pursued the poor and needy and the brokenhearted, to put them to death.17 He loved to curse; let curses come2 upon him! He did not delight in blessing; may it be far3 from him!18 He clothed himself with cursing as his coat; may it soak4 into his body like water, like oil into his bones!19 May it be like a garment that he wraps around him, like a belt that he puts on every day!20 May this be the reward of my accusers from the LORD, of those who speak evil against my life! 21 But you, O GOD my Lord, deal on my behalf for your name's sake; because your steadfast love is good, deliver me!22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is stricken within me.23 I am gone like a shadow at evening; I am shaken off like a locust.24 My knees are weak through fasting; my body has become gaunt, with no fat.25 I am an object of scorn to my accusers; when they see me, they wag their heads. 26 Help me, O LORD my God! Save me according to your steadfast love!27 Let them know that this is your hand; you, O LORD, have done it!28 Let them curse, but you will bless! They arise and are put to shame, but your servant will be glad!29 May my accusers be clothed with dishonor; may they be wrapped in their own shame as in a cloak! 30 With my mouth I will give great thanks to the LORD; I will praise him in the midst of the throng.31 For he stands at the right hand of the needy one, to save him from those who condemn his soul to death. Sit at My Right Hand A Psalm of David. 110 The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” 2 The LORD sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies!3 Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power,5 in holy garments;6 from the womb of the morning, the dew of your youth will be yours.74 The LORD has sworn and will not change his mind, “You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” 5 The Lord is at your right hand; he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.6 He will execute judgment among the nations, filling them with corpses; he will shatter chiefs8 over the wide earth.7 He will drink from the brook by the way; therefore he will lift up his head. Great Are the Lord's Works 111 9 Praise the LORD! I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation.2 Great are the works of the LORD, studied by all who delight in them.3 Full of splendor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever.4 He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and merciful.5 He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever.6 He has shown his people the power of his works, in giving them the inheritance of the nations.7 The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy;8 they are established forever and ever, to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.9 He sent redemption to his people; he has commanded his covenant forever. Holy and awesome is his name!10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever!

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 21 Timothy, my fellow worker, greets you; so do Lucius and Jason and Sosipater, my kinsmen. 22 I Tertius, who wrote this letter, greet you in the Lord. 23 Gaius, who is host to me and to the whole church, greets you.

Karl Kerenyi collaborated with Jung in demonstrating the psychological meaning of Greek mythology. Kerenyi found in Hermes a representation of “a third way of living life, besides the Apollonian rational and the Dionysian irrational. God of jokes and journeys, thieves and magicians, the tricky Guide of Souls” arrives as surprise. Like the quicksilver that is his Roman name, Mercury/Hermes appears on winged sandals, heralding the new. Hermes disdains regulation and law to deliver new ideas, dissolve opposites, and provide decisive experiences. Just as he alone traversed the realms--from the heights of Mt. Olympus to the underworld of Hades--Hermes now swifts his way from the unconscious to ego awareness. The agent of creativity and transformation, Hermes is the symbol of a living reality seeking conscious acknowledgement. How we perceive his message is not his interest. He is already gone. Dream I'm on a piece of inhabited land, by the shore, with many others in a beach town. Some of the people I know, some I do not. Across the water is an island. It looks like Devil's Tower in Wyoming (the one in Close Encounters of the Third Kind), but this island is lush, tropical and Jurassic. It's a beautiful day, close to sunset, and the view is gorgeous. All of the sudden we all realize there are three enormous boats that look like cruise ships balancing on the edge of the top of the island. They're huge, a third of the height of the island. One looks old, two look new. No one knows how they got there. There is a theory they went ashore when the water level was higher, but we all know that doesn't make much sense... we would have seen them there long ago, but in this case they just appeared, seemingly out of nowhere. We all realize they're about to fall as they're balanced precariously. As we anticipate an enormous crash, we take shelter. I can see them fall slowly off the top of the island, to the base. There is a lot of destruction - so much dust and debris, and the sky gets very hazy. But I am safe. The next morning, we wake up, and it's a beautiful day. The shape of the island across the water is totally different. It's been totally reconstructed by the crash of the boats (which are no longer visible). The island looks a lot less ominous in shape. I look to my left and see that some of the debris from the island has landed in the water, which allowed for a bike path to be built from our land to the island, across the water. I realize perhaps this crash has actually improved things for the better, and everything feels calm and beautiful. References Karl Kerenyi.

A firsthand, behind-the-scene account of the controversies surrounding modern explorations at Giza• Investigates the recent scandals at Giza and claims of secret excavations and tunneling inside the Great Pyramid• Reveals the historical evidence in support of secret chambers in the Great Pyramid and beneath the Great Sphinx• Exposes the secret agendas behind the latest explorations on the Giza plateauSince 1993 Robert Bauval has been embroiled in the many controversies involving the search for the lost treasures of the pyramid builders and the quest for the legendary Hall of Records of Atlantis. The strange but true story that he unfolds implicates American business moguls, the prestigious National Geographic Society, several Ivy League universities, the Edgar Cayce Foundation, the Freemasons, Christian fundamentalists, Zionists, and the Egyptian government.In this fully updated edition of Secret Chamber, including new color photographs, Robert Bauval pursues his in-depth investigation of clandestine events at Giza and the role played by the controversial ex-Minister of Antiquities Dr. Zahi Hawass. What lies behind the mysterious doors at the end of the star shafts in the Great Pyramid? What do the mysterious inscriptions found behind the Gantenbrink door mean? What is the real purpose of the Relief Chambers and the red ochre “graffiti” in them? Who is behind the secretly tunneling and excavating in these chambers, and why? Is there really a hidden Hall of Records from Atlantis beneath the Great Sphinx? Is the Great Pyramid just a tomb or does it serve a higher purpose involving a lost science of immortality? Why do the ancient texts ascribe the Pyramid's design to the supreme god of wisdom Thoth, the writer of the fabled Books of Hermes? Will the Great Pyramid prove to be the “missing link” to our true origins or a “metaphysical machine” to access the world beyond?Providing a firsthand account of the strange events that have taken place at the Giza plateau in the last three decades, Bauval reveals the hidden agendas behind these events and raises important questions about the meaning of Egypt's ancient structures and the very origins of civilization.Egyptian-born Robert Bauval began studying ancient Egypt and the Giza Pyramids in 1983. The acclaimed discoverer of the Orion Correlation Theory, he is the author of several books, including Black Genesis, Breaking the Mirror of Heaven, The Vatican Heresy, and the bestsellers The Orion Mystery and Message of the Sphinx. His discoveries have been the subject of several major TV documentaries on BBC, ABC, NBC, the Discovery Channel, and the History Channel. He lives with his wife near Malaga, Spain.

Watta ya think about that, Hold on to your hat. He's chittin' and chattin'. More dishing on Hermes watches that we couldn't get in last time. Mount Blanc watches are exposed for what they are, not an unwanted step child of watches, but a continuation of a famous watch maker. Learn all about it, exposed and a great deal to boot. Next we go over Graham British/Swiss watches since 1695. Really nice looks and quality but not cheap, kinda pricey even on the pre owned market. But still fabulous to look at and experience. Next and last Junghans is explored as another sleeper brand that started out as a very large clock manufacturer. They make some very well priced models new and the preowned market is really filled with bargains. Wow this is eye opening!

Well congrats number one and tomorrow. How are you doing? Tamar (57s): Thank you. I'm awesome. It's an awesome day to be recording an episode with you. Jesse (1m 4s): Yeah. Well thank you again for coming on the show. You're joining us from Austin today. Tamar (1m 9s): That's correct. The great, the great city of Austin, where we have booming real estate and lots of people moving here and lost of opportunity. Jesse (1m 19s): Yeah. Despite your government's best efforts. Tamar (1m 22s): Yes. We won't talk about politics today. Jesse (1m 26s): Well, being north of the 45th, we won't get into us politics, but again, thanks for coming on the show. I thought it'd be great to talk real estate with yourself, from your perspective and some of the, the unique aspects and adventures that you've taken in your career to kick us off. What we like to do with guests is number one, talk a little bit about how you got into this crazy world that we call real estate. Tamar (1m 51s): Yes. So I was 28 years old, an executive in the entertainment industry and realized that while I had a great job, I was in the trap of trading time for money and I didn't like it. And I noticed that the guy that was my landlord collected rent checks every month. And I thought, well, that's pretty cool. I wonder if I could do that. And I wonder if I could stop paying rent. So even back over 20 years ago, people were thinking this way before we learned about house hacking and all of the terms that we have coined today. And I went ahead, I bought a duplex and the rest is history. It didn't turn out a hundred percent the way I had planned, it was a great deal, but I could have done different things. Now, knowing what I know today, I probably would've been a little more strategic, so it's still appreciated. Great. And it actually is a property that I hung onto sentimentally. It's not, it would make a lot more money if I sold it, but I just don't have the heart to, Jesse (2m 58s): We just talked before the show about these unique properties that we kind of collect over the years. And that seems like one that's. Is that still with you? Tamar (3m 6s): It is. It is still with me. And it's, I, I I'm really of the belief that people that build assets, people that build portfolios and have properties or in a lot of deals and partnerships. Those are people that build real wealth, flippers and people that do other strategic moves, where they don't hold the property. That's also a great strategy, but it's more of a job, right? Because as soon as I'm done with the flip, I have to find another flip. Jesse (3m 36s): Yeah. It's one of the things I always say, the, especially with flipping or if that, you know, your business is birth strategy, anything like that, you really are, you know, a job might be too, you know, condemn them too hard, but it's definitely a business that's an operating business. And as soon as you stop working, the money typically stops coming in. Tamar (3m 54s): Right. And that's why it's always great. If you have that strategy in place, which is a great strategy, especially if you don't have a ton of money, it's a great way to start because you can make a really good margin on a flip, and then you can use that money to buy and hold something or figure out how to strategically refinance it and get all your money out of the deal. So there are opportunities there, but I definitely believe that holding assets longterm is safe and a great way to have passive income regularly, regardless of what the market does. Jesse (4m 26s): Yeah. That's a really good point. I think it's similar to, you know, when somebody sells a company and they take that seed money and invest it, one thing with real estate, you know, what other area are you able to take a large chunk of, of capital from the sale of say, you know, fix and flip and utilize that, you know, even if your salary's great Parkinson's law usually tells us that, you know, if we, if we make enough, we will spend probably the same amount, regardless of what percent or what amount we make. So it's a good point. So this, that was your first foray into real estate. And you, you said 20 years, was that in the early two thousands? That duplex? Tamar (5m 3s): Yeah, I bought that. I bought that in the early two thousands and, and really my journey. Wasn't very bold. I didn't go and start buying up a lot of properties. I was very tentative because I was, did not know anything about wealth or real estate investing. And I was very afraid. There are big investments. There, there are a lot of money and, and I didn't wanna make a mistake and I didn't want to buy something that, that didn't work out and be underwater. And really, I was listening to the people that didn't know real estate, or that had a bad experience in real estate. And when you, when you get into the trap of listening to those people, you'll, you'll only hear negative stories. So it's always a good idea to listen to the people that are successful. And that when I started doing that, I really started to steamroll. And the truth is you gotta bet on yourself. And at the end of the day, all of us know more than we think we know we've been so beaten down, just everybody in life is their stories of trauma or hurt. Even if you had a great childhood where maybe, you know, one day your mom turned around and said no to you. And then, you know, we're, we're we go into the adult world feeling paralyzed with that word? No. So I just think that, that it was, it was definitely the mindset and stepping into the person that I wanted to become and the, and the life that I wanted to create that helped me propel myself into an, into wealth. Jesse (6m 40s): Yeah. I don't think there's an investor out there that had, has not had that experience of, you know, people at the beginning of your career saying, you know, I've tried it before tenants are gonna put holes in the wall. You know, you shouldn't do it, the real estate markets fickle it's really, until you do it, that you kind of quiet those voices, but a hundred percent when you're at the beginning of your investing career, those are pretty loud voices. And even though sometimes they can mean the be for the best. A lot of times, those voices are very close to home. So you, you take them to heart. Tamar (7m 10s): Absolutely. And having income. And especially when you haven't grown up with any money, you get very attached to the security and to the comfort of feeling like, you know, your bills are paid, you know, you can go certain places and travel and do the things that we all really enjoy doing. And that attachment creates a lot of fear when we wanna make moves to grow wealth, because there's no way to do it unless you're willing to, unless you're willing to take a little bit of a leap. Yeah. And the thing that I like though about real estate, more than any other asset is that, or any other, you know, stock market or business venture, is that I can really understand it. And like you said, once you understand it, you can, you can kind of bet on it in a way where you've really mitigated a lot of the risk. So it's almost like not really a bet. Like the stock market is a lot more of a bet business is certainly, I mean, huge rewards, but big bet. And then real estate is like small margins of bet and big rewards. Jesse (8m 16s): Yeah. I, I can't remember. I always mix the, the three up, but there's the, you know, you can mitigate risk, you can reduce risk, you can eliminate. And I think you, you can bear the risk. So I think, you know, depending on what area in real estate, you invest, you can be super, super conservative where you can be cowboy gun slinging, you know, developer speculating. So I think there's a, there's a wide variety of aspects that you can tackle it. This one thing I, I like to ask investors is this idea that you said you kind of alluded to being tentative at the beginning. And I'm always curious to know when people switch, if they do from their full-time job to a full-time investor, if they keep both of them at the same time, like what, what did that look like for you when you started ramping up on the investing side? Tamar (9m 3s): Again, it took me a while to, to let go of a, a very steady stream of income. So the, my corporate, my corporate job, I actually left. And because I was starting the journey of motherhood and realized that I didn't wanna work in the entertainment industry where they absolutely don't, don't give you a lot of time off just because you had a kid it's not, I mean, there are certain companies, but the kind of work that I did, it wasn't like that. And, and, you know, there's, the entertainment industry is well known for having long hours. It's just the nature of creating TV and movies. And so when I had left that I actually had started in another company and it was, it was very easy to just keep going with that. And even as I was making the income through real estate, I still was holding onto that because I still wanted that were so conditioned. It was like, in my mind, I still thought, well, something can happen in real estate. And it takes a really long time. But what I did was I created certain posts, certain number posts, where it was like, okay, once I have 10,000 a month, then I'll be comfortable. And I think that's really important because otherwise you just keep racing and racing. Yeah. I have friends that have eight figures and they're still, they still have one of the, one of the partners in the relationship working in a corporate job, because they're just thinking, well, just a few more years, cuz we remember in 2008 and we didn't have money and we never want that to happen again. So he's just gonna work in the job a few more years that he really doesn't like, because we have, you know, 9 million in the bank, but we're just, we just need another 30, 30,000 a year in cash flow. Jesse (10m 52s): Yeah. I mean, that makes a lot of sense. Like I have the benefit, you know, my day to day job is in commercial real estate as a broker. So it's kind of like, you know, we, we, we let go of this idea of having guaranteed income a long time ago. So that's why I feel that in my world of the, of the people that do invest, they, they aren't, you know, even, even in their sixties and seventies, sometimes they always have one foot still into, in the, in the brokerage world just because it's, it's that kind of world where you can, you can somewhat manage both, but 100%, I think for everybody having that job, like you said, completely conditioned to have that income, regardless of what it, what it is because of those unknowns, the 2000 eights, the 1992 threes. But so the, the duplex from there, what did the, the journey look like from there to where you are now and, and specifically in terms of the type of properties or assets that you invest in. Tamar (11m 48s): Yeah. So I'm still a huge fan of duplexes and single family homes. I think that it's a great way to invest, talk about a conservative investment that can yield a lot of return and tax advantages. So I, I absolutely love that model. It's not the sexiest. It's not like, oh, you know, it's not like saying I own a 150 unit multifamily at the same time. Who cares because the truth is if you need to exit 150 multifamily, it's a lot harder than getting rid of 10 single family homes. So you have to look at your comfort level. And for me, I still have those sprinkled into my portfolio. And over time, what I've done with my portfolio is I have gone more into a balancing act of having, having a lot of partnership deals. I'm in a lot of syndications and I'm in a lot of Airbnbs where I put the capital in, but I don't do anything, but I own equity and I own, and I, I get paid passive income every month. So there's all kinds of ways you can structure deals. That's sort of become a, a more fun way for me because I am a people person. And I also have, have a really good radar for identifying talent and identifying really great partners that I can trust. And so at a certain point, I feel like when you're, when I'm in the grind and I have these properties, it's a little lonely, you're kind of on your own, but when you have the partnerships, it starts to get playful. And at this, and the reason why I keep the single families and some of the other pieces that I still manage is for the real estate professional status, which is a very good benefit. I'm not sure how you have that structured in Canada, but in the states, the, the real estate professional status is allows you to take both active and passive income as a tax deduction, which is really an extraordinary opportunity to offset income. Jesse (13m 56s): Yeah, my understanding last time I looked into this and we've had cross border accountants and lawyers on the show before my understanding is we don't have it. If I remember correctly, there's a certain amount of hours per week that need to be dedicated to real estate for, to, to classify as that status. Is that, is that correct? Tamar (14m 12s): Yeah. It's not only that you're working in real estate. So one of the, I'm not a CPA, so please don't take my advice, talk to your CPA. But, but, but the fact of the matter is is that if you are a real estate agent, you're not a real estate professional. Yeah. It really is actively participating in the properties for a certain amount of hours and it actually gets it. The rules are actually quite strict and, and it, and if there is an audit, which is, you know, you never really know happens statistically, we're not, you know, audits. There was a rumor that audits were on the decline, but we, we know we have a lot of, of fish to fry right now. So, you know, there's a, there's a lot of things happening probably before maybe they get to your tax return to audit it. But that said, I would, you know, do my best to follow the rules. And at the same time, know that the likelihood of you being audited is probably not wildly great. And anyway, the truth is, is that, you know, you stay in line, you have to keep a log and do the real estate professional status in the states. And if you do and you do it correctly, then you do have an opportunity to, to get a big tax deduction, which is why I do it. Jesse (15m 29s): Yeah. It makes sense. I mean, I think we've had, I think Laura Lauren Cohen on the show before she's a cross border lawyer and Florida to Toronto is kind of the, the pipeline. And I think part of the status for visa, for Canadians in the states, or one of the, the angles she uses is that, is that status there of real estate professional as part of building a, I guess, an argument for the visa. So in terms of the, the geography you're in Austin, Texas, your proper's, Texas out-of-state instate, what do you like to what you like to buy? Tamar (16m 2s): Yes, well, I came from California, so definitely exited a lot of that for obvious reasons, beautifully appreciating market, but very difficult for landlords and the, and the tenant laws, which I know that that's something that you contend with too in Canada. And so Texas is for the landlord, which doesn't mean that you want to treat your tenants any less respectfully. However, if a tenant is not respecting you, then you have the right to, to have them have them vacate your premises, which seems reasonable to me. And, and so, yes, I am investing in Texas. I really have investments across the country. There are so many great markets right now. We've seen so much growth in so many different states. And I try not to manage a lot in, in other states because one, because I'm, I'm, I like my real estate professional status and two, because I, I just don't need to because I'm in Texas and it's a great market to invest in. Jesse (17m 10s): Yeah, my friends and family in, in California and New York state, they can feel our pain in Toronto and Ontario. I think our laws are more similar to those two states than they are to say, Florida or Texas, for instance. And it's 100% I've, I've probably, I've said it a number of times on the program before where it's, it has nothing to do with trying to do anything nefarious with your tenants. It's just having a level playing field that, you know, both sides are accountable to each other and not one is taken advantage of the other. And unfortunately, I think the way that stabilization and rent control is developed in, in New York and California, it, it unfortunately goes that way. And it's very difficult to get tenants out when they are violating the terms that you agreed to. Tamar (17m 54s): Right. And I do have a lot of sympathy for, for creating rules around that, because unfortunately there are people where they'll come in and they'll just take people out and they are displacing people that cannot afford homes. And we obviously have a, a lack of housing. And so that is something that is a consideration from a humanitarian standpoint, although then we have the other side. So yeah, it is, it's difficult to invest in, in, in California. I still do have investments there. And, but it's, you know, anything that falls under the rent control is, is very difficult to work with. Jesse (18m 34s): And are they still using the system of there's annual guidelines for increases of rent? Is, is that something they do in California as well? Tamar (18m 41s): Yes. There are annual guidelines unless someone moves out. Yeah. Then you can, then you can raise the rent, a market rent to market, and I actually have paid, and this is crazy, cuz this, you can buy properties for this. I paid one 10 at $70,000 once. Wow. To vacate. Yeah. And that was, that was my mistake. And part of it is that when you're, when you're in the process, it was a property that I had bought early on that was under rent control. You don't know all the nuances. And so what hap it's really important when you buy a property to start investigating right away. Okay. What can be done? These are things that I could see could be issues. So I had a tenant that was in there and I probably could have just offered them $10,000 when they moved in. But instead I, I thought, well, that's fine. We'll just let them ride. Well, 10 years later, the property had escalated in value and they were very well situated in the property and just didn't wanna move. And they were smart. They knew their rights. And so I was really in it stuck between a rock and a hard place. So I think that it's a good lesson for whenever you get any kind of property like multifamily, whatever it is, storage, whatever it is always start right away and look at, okay, these are the potential issues that I see that could happen and figure out how to mitigate them sooner than later. Don't really think hard before you decide, I'll just kick the can on this. Because if you see that it could be an issue later, if you kick the can on it, ultimately you won't be in as strategic of a position to negotiate some sort of a, an exit around it. Jesse (20m 20s): So that sounds to me that you wanted to get vacant possession for a sale. Tamar (20m 24s): Well, I wanted, well, there was two, it was twofold. I either wanted vacant possession to, to double the rent from 1500 to 3000, which is a huge difference. Or I wanted possession for the sale. But once you have someone that is occupying the property, if they don't wanna leave and you can't, you know, readily force them, there are certain guidelines, but I, I try to stay within the, the legal parameters because I wanna be a good citizen. And, and so what, what happened is that if you wanna sell the property, if you sell the property with it's the same, it's the same principle also for any kind of real estate that you're doing. If you sell the property and it's not performing as well as it could, because it has an, it has an issue. Someone else can solve that problem, but they're gonna pay less for the property. Yeah. But if you solve the problem, then you can charge more for the property. So that was my strategy I wanted to, at the time I either wanted, I wanted possession of the property. I wanted possession of that unit. Yeah. So that was kind of how it went. Jesse (21m 27s): Yeah. It's pretty much standard practice now that in, in Toronto and a couple other cities up here that it's, it is a agreement that you come to, whether it's 20,000, 25, 30,000 in an apartment scenario per tenant to, to leave, I'm amazed that the government is still allowing us to have that adult conversation and contract and say that you agreed to leave if, if this amount is paid, cuz you know, if you just Google that, you'll start seeing a number of news articles that I probably are not dissimilar to your experience in California. Now, in terms of the, the structure that you typically like to use, you mentioned partners now, is this something where you're doing a JV, a more formal structure, like a syndication what's what do you typically like to do? And I understand that, you know, could depend on the, on the property itself, Tamar (22m 17s): Right? So it's true. It does depend on the property itself. And what I really work towards is identifying the best partner. So if I'm going to be a limited partner in LP, then I will look for the best sponsors and the Le best terms and the best deals. What did they buy the property for all the questions you wanna ask kind of as an outsider before you give someone your money and you also wanna look at the track record of the operator to make sure, you know, have they exited before, do do they know how to deal with this asset class, all of those things. So that's what I look for there. A lot of the determination there has to do with, you know, do I, you know, do I like the terms? Do I like the model? Do I do? I think the sponsor can handle, you know, can, can execute on their plan. So with that, I will just put, put money into there. Also, one of the things I look at is what kind of depreciation they offer because depreciation allows us to, with, if you're not a real estate professional, you can do passive, passive income, passive income against passive losses so that depreciation can help you offset some, some, some other passive income, which is really comes in handy. And you know, it return, it expands your bottom line, right? If they're offering you 17%, but then you get a depreciation, you can think it's like a 22%, which is quite a, quite an attractive return. So on the LPs, that's how I do that. Now, when I GP a project, I'm still looking for the same things, but I'm probably even more strict. And the reason is, is because when, as a general partner, I'm part of that deal and I really need to make 150% sure because I'm the one that's coming to you and saying, Hey, I've got a deal for you and bringing people into the deal. And I'm also involved in, in the trenches. So with that, I'm looking even with a stronger magnifying glass and, and other deals, it just, you know, partnerships come to me, like I said, I'm in a couple of Airbnbs and the smokes, I own one on my own. And then I have a couple with partners. I do nothing and it's great. We just refied out. I just got all my money out of the deal and it's appreciated hundreds of thousands of dollars. I own equity and I do nothing. And, and so it's a fantastic opportunity. And for that, I really look at what are the ideas that a partner approaches me with and, or what are the ideas that I'm bringing to a partner? So if I don't, you know, you either have to have the time, the sweat or the, or the deal. So, so I have to look at with me a lot of times, it's I happen to have the capital. So, you know, I'm looking at it from a place of where do I wanna give my capital, but if you have the deal, then you have options of, you know, what kind of partner would be someone that will be reasonable and create, create terms that, that are amenable to both. So it's a win-win. Jesse (25m 16s): So once the sale is closed, you always hear that of, you know, the different individuals I, you know, was saying, we just hired a, a new kid at work. And I was basically saying that real estate you're gonna, you're gonna have every different type of individual. And, and some client is going to be the right fit for them. And, and that may be the complete opposite to you. There's always kind of a fit because it's a people business and every person and every client's gonna be slightly different. And one thing I, we were talking about was after the deal is done in terms of closing, if you're the, the operator. So you're the general partner in this case, you know, one thing you learned really quickly is if you have partners, you know, some people are better at making sure that the bank statement looks okay, others are better at investor relations. Others are better with construction. You said you're kind of a people person, you know, what hat do you typically or feel the most comfortable wearing when you're in that general partner role? And then how do you delegate, you know, those other, those other areas. Tamar (26m 15s): So I'm very much a friend of the house person. And, and I definitely am a lot involved in, in putting pieces together in consumer relations in, in finding part, the right partners to also partner with us. That is more my wheelhouse, like the underwriting. I can look at it, but I don't wanna sit at a desk and underwrite a deal for, you know, 10 hours a day. And that's what it takes, cuz you're looking at deal after deal, after deal. And some people love that. They, they love the numbers, they love the strategy and that's great, but that's just not, that's not my thing. So pretty much that's, that's the role that I play. So I might bring in other people to do different things. I usually have other, there's usually several GPS on a deal. So I'm usually not left by myself to kind of delegate everything. I usually have various partners that are very skilled at other things. And, and so that's kind of how it, how it works. And I think it is. I think one of the things that, that I do in my coaching is I talk to clients a lot about what is it that you like, right? Because we forget as we're in the grind, we're just thinking I wanna make money in real estate and I wanna grow wealth, but there are certain things, there are certain jobs like you're pointing out that, that you may be more inclined towards, you know, you may be the other day working on some prefabs right now in Austin. And the, the general contractor on the job was talking to me about how he just loves to work with his hands. And he likes the, you know, the, the strategies of, of the buildings and he really enjoys that aspect. Right. For me, that's a little bit of a headache I just wanna look at, okay, does this look right? Does that look right? Is this in line? So, so it's good to get to know yourself and know what you're really good at because it, especially if you, if you are someone that's really handy in construction, flipping might be a great thing for you because if you can take care of that on your own, and you don't need to hire third parties, then you don't need to rely on a huge team. You can oversee it pretty easily and you can probably get it done at a much lower price, which will give you a better profit. Jesse (28m 24s): Yeah, it makes sense. I mean, if the alternative is your working construction for somebody else and you could be buying the assets, doing the job and coming, coming home with a larger paycheck. That definitely makes sense. I wanna, I wanna get into the book a little bit and coaching before I do, though. I'm just curious. Did your former career, was that an asset in, in how you manage your real estate business? Cuz I, I just imagine your industry, your prior industry, it's fairly chaotic long hours, lots going on was curious how that parlayed or helped or hurt, you know, your world in real estate. Tamar (28m 57s): Oh, that's a really, that's a really interesting question. No one's ever asked me that, but I would say that someone that can work in a fast paced environment will generally thrive in real estate. If you like a lot of things moving around and fires coming up and you put the fire out and then you gotta walk over here and put another fire out. That's perfect for real estate because we, people like us thrive in that sort of environment. We like things changing. We like things moving and we like solving problems. So I definitely think so. I also, just from my humble roots of not growing up with a lot of money, I was someone who was very hungry and I not physically hungry. Luckily I always had food, but I was, I was hungry in terms of my drive in terms of creating a kind of life that I wanted for myself. And so I was willing to work hard. I was willing to go to, to a million meetups to meet people I was willing to, to do whatever it took. And it's interesting right now I have a relative that wants to get into real estate. I, I gave him rich dad, poor dad. And of course now the rest is history, right? Yeah. You can't not read rich dad, poor dad. And think I gotta get some real estate today. What am I doing with my life? And so, and so that happened and he is a super smart guy and he is starting to go to meetups. And I told him, I said, listen. I said, when you go to meetups, I said, do not ask anyone to pick your brain, to pick their brain and do not ask anyone if you can have some of their time so that you can learn, ask them about them, ask them what you can do for them, ask them how they, how you can be of service to them. Because people love to talk about themselves. And they like people that aren't all about. Like, give me me, me, me, me, because it doesn't show that you're a hard worker, hard worker, someone that is like, Hey, what can I do for you? I'm I'm really willing to, to learn this. Can I, you know, can I just follow you around? And like, you know, help pick up the pieces that maybe fall apart during the day, maybe I'll go get a toilet seat for you and bring it back to the property, you know, be, be of use to people. And that's where you really establish opportunities and friendships. Yeah. I didn't bring toilets to anybody though. I did other things though. Jesse (31m 12s): I can't remember which guest, but somebody recently was saying, most people have an eye problem. I did this, I did that. I'm gonna do this. So if you can tap into that ego, that's definitely definitely the route to take. Okay. Let's talk a little bit about the book maybe for, for listeners. You, can you give us kind of a bit of a, what the thesis is and, and how, how it came about to, to writing it? Cause I know it's, it's not a small feat. Tamar (31m 37s): Yeah, no, it's not. So yes. The book is called the millionaires mentality, a professional women's guide to building wealth through real estate. And I wrote it for a couple reasons. One is that I like to do hard things. Now how many people would not want to write a book and leave a mark on the world? Do book lives well beyond you? It's a really cool thing. Yeah. And statistically it's 81% of people have a book in them or wanna write a book and 3% actually do it. It's not easy to put all your thoughts together and the editing and the work. And even when you hire people there's work involved. So, so I wanted to do it for that reason because it's one, because it's a challenge. And I wanted to feel like I, the more that I challenge myself, the more I feel confident in myself and the more I'm excited about what I can achieve. And so it was next level for me. And also because it lives beyond me, my daughter, my 20 year old read my book and how much knowledge did she get out of that? Seeing the journey of where I came from and my thoughts about there's a chapter of it's okay to want money. That's a big thing. That's a big thing for a lot of us that grow up without money. And especially for women, I mean, I don't know what it is and why money became a dirty thing when money is, is a blessing. And it really, it, it supports everything in our, in, in every way. And we can think of it in a great way, or we can think of it as a, as a hindrance. And so as soon as you open up and are excited about it, then you can start to open the floodgates and see what's possible. And then I just wanted chapters to really outline, okay, how do you do this? How do you get into real estate? All the things that I kind of had to figure out on my own, I just wanted to put it in a book and kind of a in, in terms that I, that I understood in a very personable way. And so that's why I, I created the book. Jesse (33m 34s): So the, the book and I apologize millionaire, okay. Now the book itself, like I, I, I assume it's, it's something that is for the general population guy or gal, but can you talk a little bit about the, the female experience as an investor? Because we, you know, we've had women on the show before and, and like I said, you know, prior to the show, when we were talking, everybody has a unique experience, but I find that there's some, some commonalities when it comes from women going up into real estate, whether that's in brokerage development investment. So yeah. Could maybe give a, your thoughts on that. Tamar (34m 13s): Absolutely. So I'm a super positive person and I love people. I'm not like, oh, men are like, this women are like this. I think just, you know, if you're a good person, then you're a good person. You could be male, female. I can love you the same. And I've had that experience in real estate. We have, 90% of millionaires are made through real estate. 30% are women. So we are a minority. And part of it just has to do with the fact that we haven't not too long ago, we couldn't vote not too long ago. We couldn't even buy a house. So, I mean, we're just, you know, we're a little bit behind because we haven't had as much time to ramp up, but I feel like women in investing actually have an advantage in that we're very personable, we're nurtures, we're relationship oriented. And if we can just get past the idea that that money is something we need to clinging to, or that there's not enough, then all of a sudden we're able to make decisions that, that give us the opportunity to really grow wealth and own, own a lot of assets and, and have the life that we, that we Jesse (35m 21s): Want. Yeah. I think, you know, whether it's entrepreneurship business in general or real estate, I feel that having unique experiences it's, I almost see it always as a positive to the team, whether that's unique experience geographically, the way you, you grew up, you know, color creed, you know, whether whether you're male or female, I find that just uniqueness, we'll see a problem that maybe some other person didn't solve. I think the worst thing is when you have a monolith, you know, people that were all grew up the same way and they're all in the business, because then those creative solutions might not be there in your, and your blinders will be the same. So that's a great point. I wanna be mindful of the time tomorrow. This has been great. We have four questions. We ask every guest that comes on the show, and then we'll kind of wrap up with where people can get ahold of you. So if that works for you, they're easy, easy layup. So don't be, don't be nervous. But if that works, I'll kick those off. Tamar (36m 18s): Sounds great. Jesse (36m 19s): Okay. One thing we ask for every guest is your view on mentorship, basically, what would you say to somebody that say female in this case, the, a younger woman that wants to get into real estate investment? You know, what would you say to that person? Tamar (36m 34s): Well, I, it's interesting cuz I just shared about this relative and he's kind of in the same boat and I would say the same thing to a male as I would a female, I would say if you really want it and you're determined start walking toward it. And how do you do that? You have to get knowledge. So you, if you don't have resources, you have to go to meetups, you have to show up, you have to listen to people, you have to learn. And if you are, if you have resource, definitely invest in a mentorships have been fantastic for me, they've connected me with a lot of higher level people that ha and given me access to a lot of knowledge and opportunities. So I think that the more you invest in yourself and that means your time and resources, the better. And I think that you can't, I wouldn't, I, you could certainly figure out this by yourself. It is not brain surgery, but it is a lot faster and a lot more fun and easier if you have mentors to support you along the way. Jesse (37m 36s): Yeah. That makes sense. The beginning of your career, we all have these hard lessons we learned in the first couple years of investing. What was one of those hard lessons that, you know, you know, now you wish you knew, then Tamar (37m 48s): I'm gonna say the story that I shared about the duplex, where I had to pay someone to get out for $70,000, that kind of hurt. That's a lot of money. Yeah. And, and there's actually two stories we're on the same property. Funny enough. So I would say, you know, get ahead of it and always, just really look at what you're buying and try to understand, you know, it's fine. It's not the end of the world. Like even though I had to pay a certain amount, I still made a ton of money on that property. It's so, you know, it wasn't the worst case scenario really wasn't that bad. It sounds like, oh my God, you had to pay this woman. But at the same time, I also feel like, you know, I probably put her son through college. I mean, I did, you know, I did a good thing cuz that's a lot of money to someone. So, so that was, that was really great. And the other thing was that on the same property, I had an issue with, with the property where I actually had to Sue the, the owners, they didn't disclose something and I had a plumbing issue. And so the one thing I would say also is try to have as many knowledgeable people as you can look over the contracts. Yeah. And you know, don't just assume that everything's done right. Just because no offense to realtors or anything, but you know, we're all human, we miss things. So we, we, I would say really just look at what you're signing, pay attention. I mean, really it worked out in my, my favor. Ultimately I actually ended up going to small claims court and I won and I was up against an attorney. And the reason was, was because the, the sellers had signed certain documents, not disclosing some of the work they had done. So, you know, you wanna be careful on both ends, whether you're buying or selling and really pay attention to, to documents. Jesse (39m 30s): What is aside from your great book, which we'll put a link to. What's something that you are either reading now, just finish that you could recommend to listeners. Tamar (39m 41s): I'm always reading a couple books at a time. Yeah. The one that came to me is the ed Mylet book on one more. I think it's called or the power, the power of one more. Jesse (39m 53s): Is it a fairly short book? Tamar (39m 54s): No. Jesse (39m 55s): Cause I know he, I know he has like a really like teaser book, but that like jacked me up. I was like, you know, for that whole month I was just like on, I love ed Mylet all of his stuff is, is fantastic. If you, if you haven't listened to him, just, just Google it pretty intense guy. But sorry. So that book, that, that was so Tamar (40m 14s): Yeah, that book, I mean, honestly, there's nothing really that he's saying that isn't something I've already heard. If you haven't done a lot of mindset work, then it's an extraordinary book. You should get it today because there's a lot of jewels in it. And the one thing that ed does, and I think this is partly part of the reason why you're saying that you like him so much is he really has a great way of sharing an idea and having it land in a way where you really wanna get into action and make a change about it. Hmm. And he puts together a lot of concepts that are, that are really valuable about, you know, how to make it and, and he's very motivating. So I just, I had heard him on a podcast and I just thought, oh, I'm gonna, I've never really had a book of his. So I, I just started listening to it. And it's, it's really very good. Jesse (40m 60s): Yeah. That's very cool. I think, I think it was in Vegas. I I've heard him at an event speaking and this one is max max out your life. So very, very head my let sounding. Okay. So the last question I like to ask every guest on the show, first car, make and model. Tamar (41m 17s): Oh yes. This is great. A Ford escort stick shift and it was light blue. And it I'm very proud of that car because I bought it. I was 14 and a half. I saved all my money until I had $5,000. And then when I was, was 16, I got that car. Jesse (41m 35s): I was about to say Ford Bronco. And then I realized you were from California, originally not Texas then moved to, okay. So we were gonna put, we'll put everything in the show notes where people can reach out to you, but any place aside from a Google search that you, that we can send them. Tamar (41m 51s): Yeah. So the easiest way to get the book is just go to Tamar book.com. There's also a quiz to discover your real estate investing personality. And that firstname.lastname@example.org.

With family: Judges 10–11:11; Acts 14 Judges 10–11:11 (Listen) Tola and Jair 10 After Abimelech there arose to save Israel Tola the son of Puah, son of Dodo, a man of Issachar, and he lived at Shamir in the hill country of Ephraim. 2 And he judged Israel twenty-three years. Then he died and was buried at Shamir. 3 After him arose Jair the Gileadite, who judged Israel twenty-two years. 4 And he had thirty sons who rode on thirty donkeys, and they had thirty cities, called Havvoth-jair to this day, which are in the land of Gilead. 5 And Jair died and was buried in Kamon. Further Disobedience and Oppression 6 The people of Israel again did what was evil in the sight of the LORD and served the Baals and the Ashtaroth, the gods of Syria, the gods of Sidon, the gods of Moab, the gods of the Ammonites, and the gods of the Philistines. And they forsook the LORD and did not serve him. 7 So the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he sold them into the hand of the Philistines and into the hand of the Ammonites, 8 and they crushed and oppressed the people of Israel that year. For eighteen years they oppressed all the people of Israel who were beyond the Jordan in the land of the Amorites, which is in Gilead. 9 And the Ammonites crossed the Jordan to fight also against Judah and against Benjamin and against the house of Ephraim, so that Israel was severely distressed. 10 And the people of Israel cried out to the LORD, saying, “We have sinned against you, because we have forsaken our God and have served the Baals.” 11 And the LORD said to the people of Israel, “Did I not save you from the Egyptians and from the Amorites, from the Ammonites and from the Philistines? 12 The Sidonians also, and the Amalekites and the Maonites oppressed you, and you cried out to me, and I saved you out of their hand. 13 Yet you have forsaken me and served other gods; therefore I will save you no more. 14 Go and cry out to the gods whom you have chosen; let them save you in the time of your distress.” 15 And the people of Israel said to the LORD, “We have sinned; do to us whatever seems good to you. Only please deliver us this day.” 16 So they put away the foreign gods from among them and served the LORD, and he became impatient over the misery of Israel. 17 Then the Ammonites were called to arms, and they encamped in Gilead. And the people of Israel came together, and they encamped at Mizpah. 18 And the people, the leaders of Gilead, said one to another, “Who is the man who will begin to fight against the Ammonites? He shall be head over all the inhabitants of Gilead.” Jephthah Delivers Israel 11 Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty warrior, but he was the son of a prostitute. Gilead was the father of Jephthah. 2 And Gilead's wife also bore him sons. And when his wife's sons grew up, they drove Jephthah out and said to him, “You shall not have an inheritance in our father's house, for you are the son of another woman.” 3 Then Jephthah fled from his brothers and lived in the land of Tob, and worthless fellows collected around Jephthah and went out with him. 4 After a time the Ammonites made war against Israel. 5 And when the Ammonites made war against Israel, the elders of Gilead went to bring Jephthah from the land of Tob. 6 And they said to Jephthah, “Come and be our leader, that we may fight against the Ammonites.” 7 But Jephthah said to the elders of Gilead, “Did you not hate me and drive me out of my father's house? Why have you come to me now when you are in distress?” 8 And the elders of Gilead said to Jephthah, “That is why we have turned to you now, that you may go with us and fight against the Ammonites and be our head over all the inhabitants of Gilead.” 9 Jephthah said to the elders of Gilead, “If you bring me home again to fight against the Ammonites, and the LORD gives them over to me, I will be your head.” 10 And the elders of Gilead said to Jephthah, “The LORD will be witness between us, if we do not do as you say.” 11 So Jephthah went with the elders of Gilead, and the people made him head and leader over them. And Jephthah spoke all his words before the LORD at Mizpah. (ESV) Acts 14 (Listen) Paul and Barnabas at Iconium 14 Now at Iconium they entered together into the Jewish synagogue and spoke in such a way that a great number of both Jews and Greeks believed. 2 But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers.1 3 So they remained for a long time, speaking boldly for the Lord, who bore witness to the word of his grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands. 4 But the people of the city were divided; some sided with the Jews and some with the apostles. 5 When an attempt was made by both Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers, to mistreat them and to stone them, 6 they learned of it and fled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the surrounding country, 7 and there they continued to preach the gospel. Paul and Barnabas at Lystra 8 Now at Lystra there was a man sitting who could not use his feet. He was crippled from birth and had never walked. 9 He listened to Paul speaking. And Paul, looking intently at him and seeing that he had faith to be made well,2 10 said in a loud voice, “Stand upright on your feet.” And he sprang up and began walking. 11 And when the crowds saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in Lycaonian, “The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!” 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul, Hermes, because he was the chief speaker. 13 And the priest of Zeus, whose temple was at the entrance to the city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates and wanted to offer sacrifice with the crowds. 14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of it, they tore their garments and rushed out into the crowd, crying out, 15 “Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men, of like nature with you, and we bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them. 16 In past generations he allowed all the nations to walk in their own ways. 17 Yet he did not leave himself without witness, for he did good by giving you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness.” 18 Even with these words they scarcely restrained the people from offering sacrifice to them. Paul Stoned at Lystra 19 But Jews came from Antioch and Iconium, and having persuaded the crowds, they stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, supposing that he was dead. 20 But when the disciples gathered about him, he rose up and entered the city, and on the next day he went on with Barnabas to Derbe. 21 When they had preached the gospel to that city and had made many disciples, they returned to Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch, 22 strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying that through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God. 23 And when they had appointed elders for them in every church, with prayer and fasting they committed them to the Lord in whom they had believed. Paul and Barnabas Return to Antioch in Syria 24 Then they passed through Pisidia and came to Pamphylia. 25 And when they had spoken the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia, 26 and from there they sailed to Antioch, where they had been commended to the grace of God for the work that they had fulfilled. 27 And when they arrived and gathered the church together, they declared all that God had done with them, and how he had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles. 28 And they remained no little time with the disciples. Footnotes  14:2 Or brothers and sisters  14:9 Or be saved (ESV) In private: Jeremiah 23; Mark 9 Jeremiah 23 (Listen) The Righteous Branch 23 “Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture!” declares the LORD. 2 Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who care for my people: “You have scattered my flock and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for your evil deeds, declares the LORD. 3 Then I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the countries where I have driven them, and I will bring them back to their fold, and they shall be fruitful and multiply. 4 I will set shepherds over them who will care for them, and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall any be missing, declares the LORD. 5 “Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. 6 In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: ‘The LORD is our righteousness.' 7 “Therefore, behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when they shall no longer say, ‘As the LORD lives who brought up the people of Israel out of the land of Egypt,' 8 but ‘As the LORD lives who brought up and led the offspring of the house of Israel out of the north country and out of all the countries where he1 had driven them.' Then they shall dwell in their own land.” Lying Prophets 9 Concerning the prophets: My heart is broken within me; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, like a man overcome by wine, because of the LORD and because of his holy words.10 For the land is full of adulterers; because of the curse the land mourns, and the pastures of the wilderness are dried up. Their course is evil, and their might is not right.11 “Both prophet and priest are ungodly; even in my house I have found their evil, declares the LORD.12 Therefore their way shall be to them like slippery paths in the darkness, into which they shall be driven and fall, for I will bring disaster upon them in the year of their punishment, declares the LORD.13 In the prophets of Samaria I saw an unsavory thing: they prophesied by Baal and led my people Israel astray.14 But in the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen a horrible thing: they commit adultery and walk in lies; they strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that no one turns from his evil; all of them have become like Sodom to me, and its inhabitants like Gomorrah.”15 Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets: “Behold, I will feed them with bitter food and give them poisoned water to drink, for from the prophets of Jerusalem ungodliness has gone out into all the land.” 16 Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you, filling you with vain hopes. They speak visions of their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD. 17 They say continually to those who despise the word of the LORD, ‘It shall be well with you'; and to everyone who stubbornly follows his own heart, they say, ‘No disaster shall come upon you.'” 18 For who among them has stood in the council of the LORD to see and to hear his word, or who has paid attention to his word and listened?19 Behold, the storm of the LORD! Wrath has gone forth, a whirling tempest; it will burst upon the head of the wicked.20 The anger of the LORD will not turn back until he has executed and accomplished the intents of his heart. In the latter days you will understand it clearly. 21 “I did not send the prophets, yet they ran; I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied.22 But if they had stood in my council, then they would have proclaimed my words to my people, and they would have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their deeds. 23 “Am I a God at hand, declares the LORD, and not a God far away? 24 Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the LORD. Do I not fill heaven and earth? declares the LORD. 25 I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in my name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!' 26 How long shall there be lies in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies, and who prophesy the deceit of their own heart, 27 who think to make my people forget my name by their dreams that they tell one another, even as their fathers forgot my name for Baal? 28 Let the prophet who has a dream tell the dream, but let him who has my word speak my word faithfully. What has straw in common with wheat? declares the LORD. 29 Is not my word like fire, declares the LORD, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? 30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, declares the LORD, who steal my words from one another. 31 Behold, I am against the prophets, declares the LORD, who use their tongues and declare, ‘declares the LORD.' 32 Behold, I am against those who prophesy lying dreams, declares the LORD, and who tell them and lead my people astray by their lies and their recklessness, when I did not send them or charge them. So they do not profit this people at all, declares the LORD. 33 “When one of this people, or a prophet or a priest asks you, ‘What is the burden of the LORD?' you shall say to them, ‘You are the burden,2 and I will cast you off, declares the LORD.' 34 And as for the prophet, priest, or one of the people who says, ‘The burden of the LORD,' I will punish that man and his household. 35 Thus shall you say, every one to his neighbor and every one to his brother, ‘What has the LORD answered?' or ‘What has the LORD spoken?' 36 But ‘the burden of the LORD' you shall mention no more, for the burden is every man's own word, and you pervert the words of the living God, the LORD of hosts, our God. 37 Thus you shall say to the prophet, ‘What has the LORD answered you?' or ‘What has the LORD spoken?' 38 But if you say, ‘The burden of the LORD,' thus says the LORD, ‘Because you have said these words, “The burden of the LORD,” when I sent to you, saying, “You shall not say, ‘The burden of the LORD,'” 39 therefore, behold, I will surely lift you up3 and cast you away from my presence, you and the city that I gave to you and your fathers. 40 And I will bring upon you everlasting reproach and perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.'” Footnotes  23:8 Septuagint; Hebrew I  23:33 Septuagint, Vulgate; Hebrew What burden?  23:39 Or surely forget you (ESV) Mark 9 (Listen) 9 And he said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power.” The Transfiguration 2 And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, 3 and his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one1 on earth could bleach them. 4 And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. 5 And Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi,2 it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” 6 For he did not know what to say, for they were terrified. 7 And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is my beloved Son;3 listen to him.” 8 And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only. 9 And as they were coming down the mountain, he charged them to tell no one what they had seen, until the Son of Man had risen from the dead. 10 So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what this rising from the dead might mean. 11 And they asked him, “Why do the scribes say that first Elijah must come?” 12 And he said to them, “Elijah does come first to restore all things. And how is it written of the Son of Man that he should suffer many things and be treated with contempt? 13 But I tell you that Elijah has come, and they did to him whatever they pleased, as it is written of him.” Jesus Heals a Boy with an Unclean Spirit 14 And when they came to the disciples, they saw a great crowd around them, and scribes arguing with them. 15 And immediately all the crowd, when they saw him, were greatly amazed and ran up to him and greeted him. 16 And he asked them, “What are you arguing about with them?” 17 And someone from the crowd answered him, “Teacher, I brought my son to you, for he has a spirit that makes him mute. 18 And whenever it seizes him, it throws him down, and he foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid. So I asked your disciples to cast it out, and they were not able.” 19 And he answered them, “O faithless generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him to me.” 20 And they brought the boy to him. And when the spirit saw him, immediately it convulsed the boy, and he fell on the ground and rolled about, foaming at the mouth. 21 And Jesus asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?” And he said, “From childhood. 22 And it has often cast him into fire and into water, to destroy him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” 23 And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can'! All things are possible for one who believes.” 24 Immediately the father of the child cried out4 and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!” 25 And when Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “You mute and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” 26 And after crying out and convulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy was like a corpse, so that most of them said, “He is dead.” 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose. 28 And when he had entered the house, his disciples asked him privately, “Why could we not cast it out?” 29 And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.”5 Jesus Again Foretells Death, Resurrection 30 They went on from there and passed through Galilee. And he did not want anyone to know, 31 for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him. And when he is killed, after three days he will rise.” 32 But they did not understand the saying, and were afraid to ask him. Who Is the Greatest? 33 And they came to Capernaum. And when he was in the house he asked them, “What were you discussing on the way?” 34 But they kept silent, for on the way they had argued with one another about who was the greatest. 35 And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” 36 And he took a child and put him in the midst of them, and taking him in his arms, he said to them, 37 “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me.” Anyone Not Against Us Is for Us 38 John said to him, “Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name,6 and we tried to stop him, because he was not following us.” 39 But Jesus said, “Do not stop him, for no one who does a mighty work in my name will be able soon afterward to speak evil of me. 40 For the one who is not against us is for us. 41 For truly, I say to you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ will by no means lose his reward. Temptations to Sin 42 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin,7 it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea. 43 And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than with two hands to go to hell,8 to the unquenchable fire.9 45 And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into hell. 47 And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell, 48 ‘where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.' 49 For everyone will be salted with fire.10 50 Salt is good, but if the salt has lost its saltiness, how will you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.” Footnotes  9:3 Greek launderer (gnapheus)  9:5 Rabbi means my teacher, or my master  9:7 Or my Son, my (or the) Beloved  9:24 Some manuscripts add with tears  9:29 Some manuscripts add and fasting  9:38 Some manuscripts add who does not follow us  9:42 Greek to stumble; also verses 43, 45, 47  9:43 Greek Gehenna; also verse 47  9:43 Some manuscripts add verses 44 and 46 (which are identical with verse 48)  9:49 Some manuscripts add and every sacrifice will be salted with salt (ESV)

Proper 12 First Psalm: Psalms 56–58 Psalms 56–58 (Listen) In God I Trust To the choirmaster: according to The Dove on Far-off Terebinths. A Miktam1 of David, when the Philistines seized him in Gath. 56 Be gracious to me, O God, for man tramples on me; all day long an attacker oppresses me;2 my enemies trample on me all day long, for many attack me proudly.3 When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.4 In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me? 5 All day long they injure my cause;2 all their thoughts are against me for evil.6 They stir up strife, they lurk; they watch my steps, as they have waited for my life.7 For their crime will they escape? In wrath cast down the peoples, O God! 8 You have kept count of my tossings;3 put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?9 Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call. This I know, that4 God is for me.10 In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise,11 in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me? 12 I must perform my vows to you, O God; I will render thank offerings to you.13 For you have delivered my soul from death, yes, my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of life. Let Your Glory Be over All the Earth To the choirmaster: according to Do Not Destroy. A Miktam5 of David, when he fled from Saul, in the cave. 57 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, for in you my soul takes refuge; in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, till the storms of destruction pass by.2 I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me.3 He will send from heaven and save me; he will put to shame him who tramples on me. Selah God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness! 4 My soul is in the midst of lions; I lie down amid fiery beasts— the children of man, whose teeth are spears and arrows, whose tongues are sharp swords. 5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth! 6 They set a net for my steps; my soul was bowed down. They dug a pit in my way, but they have fallen into it themselves. Selah7 My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast! I will sing and make melody!8 Awake, my glory!6 Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn!9 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations.10 For your steadfast love is great to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. 11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth! God Who Judges the Earth To the choirmaster: according to Do Not Destroy. A Miktam7 of David. 58 Do you indeed decree what is right, you gods?8 Do you judge the children of man uprightly?2 No, in your hearts you devise wrongs; your hands deal out violence on earth. 3 The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray from birth, speaking lies.4 They have venom like the venom of a serpent, like the deaf adder that stops its ear,5 so that it does not hear the voice of charmers or of the cunning enchanter. 6 O God, break the teeth in their mouths; tear out the fangs of the young lions, O LORD!7 Let them vanish like water that runs away; when he aims his arrows, let them be blunted.8 Let them be like the snail that dissolves into slime, like the stillborn child who never sees the sun.9 Sooner than your pots can feel the heat of thorns, whether green or ablaze, may he sweep them away!9 10 The righteous will rejoice when he sees the vengeance; he will bathe his feet in the blood of the wicked.11 Mankind will say, “Surely there is a reward for the righteous; surely there is a God who judges on earth.” Footnotes  56:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term  56:5 Or they twist my words  56:8 Or wanderings  56:9 Or because  57:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term  57:8 Or my whole being  58:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term  58:1 Or you mighty lords (by revocalization; Hebrew in silence)  58:9 The meaning of the Hebrew verse is uncertain (ESV) Second Psalm: Psalms 64–65 Psalms 64–65 (Listen) Hide Me from the Wicked To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. 64 Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint; preserve my life from dread of the enemy.2 Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked, from the throng of evildoers,3 who whet their tongues like swords, who aim bitter words like arrows,4 shooting from ambush at the blameless, shooting at him suddenly and without fear.5 They hold fast to their evil purpose; they talk of laying snares secretly, thinking, “Who can see them?”6 They search out injustice, saying, “We have accomplished a diligent search.” For the inward mind and heart of a man are deep. 7 But God shoots his arrow at them; they are wounded suddenly.8 They are brought to ruin, with their own tongues turned against them; all who see them will wag their heads.9 Then all mankind fears; they tell what God has brought about and ponder what he has done. 10 Let the righteous one rejoice in the LORD and take refuge in him! Let all the upright in heart exult! O God of Our Salvation To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. A Song. 65 Praise is due to you,1 O God, in Zion, and to you shall vows be performed.2 O you who hear prayer, to you shall all flesh come.3 When iniquities prevail against me, you atone for our transgressions.4 Blessed is the one you choose and bring near, to dwell in your courts! We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, the holiness of your temple! 5 By awesome deeds you answer us with righteousness, O God of our salvation, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas;6 the one who by his strength established the mountains, being girded with might;7 who stills the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, the tumult of the peoples,8 so that those who dwell at the ends of the earth are in awe at your signs. You make the going out of the morning and the evening to shout for joy. 9 You visit the earth and water it;2 you greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water; you provide their grain, for so you have prepared it.10 You water its furrows abundantly, settling its ridges, softening it with showers, and blessing its growth.11 You crown the year with your bounty; your wagon tracks overflow with abundance.12 The pastures of the wilderness overflow, the hills gird themselves with joy,13 the meadows clothe themselves with flocks, the valleys deck themselves with grain, they shout and sing together for joy. Footnotes  65:1 Or Praise waits for you in silence  65:9 Or and make it overflow (ESV) Old Testament: Joshua 24:16–33 Joshua 24:16–33 (Listen) 16 Then the people answered, “Far be it from us that we should forsake the LORD to serve other gods, 17 for it is the LORD our God who brought us and our fathers up from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery, and who did those great signs in our sight and preserved us in all the way that we went, and among all the peoples through whom we passed. 18 And the LORD drove out before us all the peoples, the Amorites who lived in the land. Therefore we also will serve the LORD, for he is our God.” 19 But Joshua said to the people, “You are not able to serve the LORD, for he is a holy God. He is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions or your sins. 20 If you forsake the LORD and serve foreign gods, then he will turn and do you harm and consume you, after having done you good.” 21 And the people said to Joshua, “No, but we will serve the LORD.” 22 Then Joshua said to the people, “You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen the LORD, to serve him.” And they said, “We are witnesses.” 23 He said, “Then put away the foreign gods that are among you, and incline your heart to the LORD, the God of Israel.” 24 And the people said to Joshua, “The LORD our God we will serve, and his voice we will obey.” 25 So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and put in place statutes and rules for them at Shechem. 26 And Joshua wrote these words in the Book of the Law of God. And he took a large stone and set it up there under the terebinth that was by the sanctuary of the LORD. 27 And Joshua said to all the people, “Behold, this stone shall be a witness against us, for it has heard all the words of the LORD that he spoke to us. Therefore it shall be a witness against you, lest you deal falsely with your God.” 28 So Joshua sent the people away, every man to his inheritance. Joshua's Death and Burial 29 After these things Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being 110 years old. 30 And they buried him in his own inheritance at Timnath-serah, which is in the hill country of Ephraim, north of the mountain of Gaash. 31 Israel served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua and had known all the work that the LORD did for Israel. 32 As for the bones of Joseph, which the people of Israel brought up from Egypt, they buried them at Shechem, in the piece of land that Jacob bought from the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for a hundred pieces of money.1 It became an inheritance of the descendants of Joseph. 33 And Eleazar the son of Aaron died, and they buried him at Gibeah, the town of Phinehas his son, which had been given him in the hill country of Ephraim. Footnotes  24:32 Hebrew for a hundred qesitah; a unit of money of unknown value (ESV) New Testament: Romans 16:1–16 Romans 16:1–16 (Listen) Personal Greetings 16 I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a servant1 of the church at Cenchreae, 2 that you may welcome her in the Lord in a way worthy of the saints, and help her in whatever she may need from you, for she has been a patron of many and of myself as well. 3 Greet Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus, 4 who risked their necks for my life, to whom not only I give thanks but all the churches of the Gentiles give thanks as well. 5 Greet also the church in their house.

Greet the beloved Persis, who has worked hard in the Lord. 13 Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord; also his mother, who has been a mother to me as well. 14 Greet Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas, and the brothers5 who are with them. 15 Greet Philologus, Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints who are with them. 16 Greet one another with a holy kiss.

Jesus Is Mocked 27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the governor's headquarters,3 and they gathered the whole battalion4 before him. 28 And they stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, 29 and twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on his head and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him, they mocked him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” 30 And they spit on him and took the reed and struck him on the head. 31 And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the robe and put his own clothes on him and led him away to crucify him.

Why have luxury goods companies like Möet Hennessy Louis Vuitton and Hermes been long-term winning companies and stocks? They create a barrier to entry to competitors through two methods. The first is signaling. What do the products mean to you and what do you want their products to signal to the rest of the world. The second is heritage. These brands have been around for a long time. If you want to tie yourself to these historical events and to have your goods mean something in the future then you want to own these older luxury brands instead of newer trendier brands.

Acts 13:51 ESV 51 But they shook off the dust from their feet against them and went to Iconium. Luke 9:5 NIV 5 If people do not welcome you, leave their town and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.” Luke 10:10-12 NIV 10 But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say, 11 ‘Even the dust of your town we wipe from our feet as a warning to you. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God has come near.' 12 I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town. Acts 14:6-7 ESV 6 they learned of it and fled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the surrounding country, 7 and there they continued to preach the gospel. Acts 14:8-10 ESV 8 Now at Lystra there was a man sitting who could not use his feet. He was crippled from birth and had never walked. 9 He listened to Paul speaking. And Paul, looking intently at him and seeing that he had faith to be made well, 10 said in a loud voice, “Stand upright on your feet.” And he sprang up and began walking. Romans 10:17 NASB 17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. Acts 14:3 ESV 3 So they remained for a long time, speaking boldly for the Lord, who bore witness to the word of his grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands. Hebrews 2:3-4 NIV 3 how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. 4 God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will. 1 Peter 2:24-25 NIV 24 “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 25 For “you were like sheep going astray,” but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. Mark 9:23-24 NIV 23 “‘If you can'?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” 24 Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” Romans 5:1-5 NIV Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. 2 Timothy 4:19-20 NIV 19 Greet Priscilla and Aquila and the household of Onesiphorus. 20 Erastus stayed in Corinth, and I left Trophimus sick in Miletus. 1 Timothy 5:23 NIV 23 Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses. Matthew 9:1-2, 5-6 NIV Jesus stepped into a boat, crossed over and came to his own town. 2 Some men brought to him a paralyzed man, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.” 5 Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, ‘Get up and walk'? 6 But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the paralyzed man, “Get up, take your mat and go home.” Acts 14:11-18 ESV 11 And when the crowds saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in Lycaonian, “The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!” 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul, Hermes, because he was the chief speaker. 13 And the priest of Zeus, whose temple was at the entrance to the city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates and wanted to offer sacrifice with the crowds. 14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of it, they tore their garments and rushed out into the crowd, crying out, 15 “Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men, of like nature with you, and we bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them. 16 In past generations he allowed all the nations to walk in their own ways. 17 Yet he did not leave himself without witness, for he did good by giving you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness.” 18 Even with these words they scarcely restrained the people from offering sacrifice to them.

aBlogtoWatch Weekly: New Releases, Rob Corder From Watchpro, And Are Rolex Watches Becoming Available Again?On this episode of aBlogtoWatch Weekly, Rick and David sit down with Rob Corder, Co-Founder and Managing Editor at Watchpro. As a publication that could best be described as the Wall Street Journal or Financial Times of the watch industry, Watchpro is known for its unique business-oriented perspective on the world of watches. Rob offers his insights on everything from whether or not we are actually seeing an increase in the global supply of Rolex watches, to the greater state of the watch industry as a whole, and which brands are most likely to be impacted by changes in the supply of ‘unicorn models' that have historically been unavailable at a retail level.In addition to talking about their predictions regarding the future supply of Rolex watches and how liquidity differs between luxury timepieces and the stock market, the trio also go over some of the latest new watch releases that span everything from five-figure statement pieces like the pink gold Girard-Perregaux Laureato and the Hermès Arceau Le Temps Voyageur to budget-friendly collaboration watches such as the James Brand x Timex Expedition North White and the Oris Aquis New York Harbor Limited Edition. Additionally, with the release of the new colorful time-only Breitling Superocean models that were unveiled earlier this week, Rick admits that he prefers watches with date displays, while David suggests that Rick's preference may be simply due to the fact that he doesn't spend enough time lounging at beach-side bars.aBlogtoWatch Weekly is brought to you by the aBlogtoWatch teamEach week the editors of the timepiece hobbyist publication aBlogtoWatch.com, discuss some of the hottest new watch stories and latest market trends in the aBlogtoWatch Weekly news podcast program.

Morning: Job 35–37 Job 35–37 (Listen) Elihu Condemns Job 35 And Elihu answered and said: 2 “Do you think this to be just? Do you say, ‘It is my right before God,'3 that you ask, ‘What advantage have I? How am I better off than if I had sinned?'4 I will answer you and your friends with you.5 Look at the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds, which are higher than you.6 If you have sinned, what do you accomplish against him? And if your transgressions are multiplied, what do you do to him?7 If you are righteous, what do you give to him? Or what does he receive from your hand?8 Your wickedness concerns a man like yourself, and your righteousness a son of man. 9 “Because of the multitude of oppressions people cry out; they call for help because of the arm of the mighty.110 But none says, ‘Where is God my Maker, who gives songs in the night,11 who teaches us more than the beasts of the earth and makes us wiser than the birds of the heavens?'12 There they cry out, but he does not answer, because of the pride of evil men.13 Surely God does not hear an empty cry, nor does the Almighty regard it.14 How much less when you say that you do not see him, that the case is before him, and you are waiting for him!15 And now, because his anger does not punish, and he does not take much note of transgression,216 Job opens his mouth in empty talk; he multiplies words without knowledge.” Elihu Extols God's Greatness 36 And Elihu continued, and said: 2 “Bear with me a little, and I will show you, for I have yet something to say on God's behalf.3 I will get my knowledge from afar and ascribe righteousness to my Maker.4 For truly my words are not false; one who is perfect in knowledge is with you. 5 “Behold, God is mighty, and does not despise any; he is mighty in strength of understanding.6 He does not keep the wicked alive, but gives the afflicted their right.7 He does not withdraw his eyes from the righteous, but with kings on the throne he sets them forever, and they are exalted.8 And if they are bound in chains and caught in the cords of affliction,9 then he declares to them their work and their transgressions, that they are behaving arrogantly.10 He opens their ears to instruction and commands that they return from iniquity.11 If they listen and serve him, they complete their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasantness.12 But if they do not listen, they perish by the sword and die without knowledge. 13 “The godless in heart cherish anger; they do not cry for help when he binds them.14 They die in youth, and their life ends among the cult prostitutes.15 He delivers the afflicted by their affliction and opens their ear by adversity.16 He also allured you out of distress into a broad place where there was no cramping, and what was set on your table was full of fatness. 17 “But you are full of the judgment on the wicked; judgment and justice seize you.18 Beware lest wrath entice you into scoffing, and let not the greatness of the ransom turn you aside.19 Will your cry for help avail to keep you from distress, or all the force of your strength?20 Do not long for the night, when peoples vanish in their place.21 Take care; do not turn to iniquity, for this you have chosen rather than affliction.22 Behold, God is exalted in his power; who is a teacher like him?23 Who has prescribed for him his way, or who can say, ‘You have done wrong'? 24 “Remember to extol his work, of which men have sung.25 All mankind has looked on it; man beholds it from afar.26 Behold, God is great, and we know him not; the number of his years is unsearchable.27 For he draws up the drops of water; they distill his mist in rain,28 which the skies pour down and drop on mankind abundantly.29 Can anyone understand the spreading of the clouds, the thunderings of his pavilion?30 Behold, he scatters his lightning about him and covers the roots of the sea.31 For by these he judges peoples; he gives food in abundance.32 He covers his hands with the lightning and commands it to strike the mark.33 Its crashing declares his presence;3 the cattle also declare that he rises. Elihu Proclaims God's Majesty 37 “At this also my heart trembles and leaps out of its place.2 Keep listening to the thunder of his voice and the rumbling that comes from his mouth.3 Under the whole heaven he lets it go, and his lightning to the corners of the earth.4 After it his voice roars; he thunders with his majestic voice, and he does not restrain the lightnings4 when his voice is heard.5 God thunders wondrously with his voice; he does great things that we cannot comprehend.6 For to the snow he says, ‘Fall on the earth,' likewise to the downpour, his mighty downpour.7 He seals up the hand of every man, that all men whom he made may know it.8 Then the beasts go into their lairs, and remain in their dens.9 From its chamber comes the whirlwind, and cold from the scattering winds.10 By the breath of God ice is given, and the broad waters are frozen fast.11 He loads the thick cloud with moisture; the clouds scatter his lightning.12 They turn around and around by his guidance, to accomplish all that he commands them on the face of the habitable world.13 Whether for correction or for his land or for love, he causes it to happen. 14 “Hear this, O Job; stop and consider the wondrous works of God.15 Do you know how God lays his command upon them and causes the lightning of his cloud to shine?16 Do you know the balancings5 of the clouds, the wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge,17 you whose garments are hot when the earth is still because of the south wind?18 Can you, like him, spread out the skies, hard as a cast metal mirror?19 Teach us what we shall say to him; we cannot draw up our case because of darkness.20 Shall it be told him that I would speak? Did a man ever wish that he would be swallowed up? 21 “And now no one looks on the light when it is bright in the skies, when the wind has passed and cleared them.22 Out of the north comes golden splendor; God is clothed with awesome majesty.23 The Almighty—we cannot find him; he is great in power; justice and abundant righteousness he will not violate.24 Therefore men fear him; he does not regard any who are wise in their own conceit.”6 Footnotes  35:9 Or the many  35:15 Theodotion, Symmachus (compare Vulgate); the meaning of the Hebrew word is uncertain  36:33 Hebrew declares concerning him  37:4 Hebrew them  37:16 Or hoverings  37:24 Hebrew in heart (ESV) Evening: Acts 14 Acts 14 (Listen) Paul and Barnabas at Iconium 14 Now at Iconium they entered together into the Jewish synagogue and spoke in such a way that a great number of both Jews and Greeks believed. 2 But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers.1 3 So they remained for a long time, speaking boldly for the Lord, who bore witness to the word of his grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands. 4 But the people of the city were divided; some sided with the Jews and some with the apostles. 5 When an attempt was made by both Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers, to mistreat them and to stone them, 6 they learned of it and fled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the surrounding country, 7 and there they continued to preach the gospel. Paul and Barnabas at Lystra 8 Now at Lystra there was a man sitting who could not use his feet. He was crippled from birth and had never walked. 9 He listened to Paul speaking. And Paul, looking intently at him and seeing that he had faith to be made well,2 10 said in a loud voice, “Stand upright on your feet.” And he sprang up and began walking. 11 And when the crowds saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in Lycaonian, “The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!” 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul, Hermes, because he was the chief speaker. 13 And the priest of Zeus, whose temple was at the entrance to the city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates and wanted to offer sacrifice with the crowds. 14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of it, they tore their garments and rushed out into the crowd, crying out, 15 “Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men, of like nature with you, and we bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them. 16 In past generations he allowed all the nations to walk in their own ways. 17 Yet he did not leave himself without witness, for he did good by giving you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness.” 18 Even with these words they scarcely restrained the people from offering sacrifice to them. Paul Stoned at Lystra 19 But Jews came from Antioch and Iconium, and having persuaded the crowds, they stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, supposing that he was dead. 20 But when the disciples gathered about him, he rose up and entered the city, and on the next day he went on with Barnabas to Derbe. 21 When they had preached the gospel to that city and had made many disciples, they returned to Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch, 22 strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying that through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God. 23 And when they had appointed elders for them in every church, with prayer and fasting they committed them to the Lord in whom they had believed. Paul and Barnabas Return to Antioch in Syria 24 Then they passed through Pisidia and came to Pamphylia. 25 And when they had spoken the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia, 26 and from there they sailed to Antioch, where they had been commended to the grace of God for the work that they had fulfilled. 27 And when they arrived and gathered the church together, they declared all that God had done with them, and how he had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles. 28 And they remained no little time with the disciples.

Old Testament: 2 Kings 18 2 Kings 18 (Listen) Hezekiah Reigns in Judah 18 In the third year of Hoshea son of Elah, king of Israel, Hezekiah the son of Ahaz, king of Judah, began to reign. 2 He was twenty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Abi the daughter of Zechariah. 3 And he did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, according to all that David his father had done. 4 He removed the high places and broke the pillars and cut down the Asherah. And he broke in pieces the bronze serpent that Moses had made, for until those days the people of Israel had made offerings to it (it was called Nehushtan).1 5 He trusted in the LORD, the God of Israel, so that there was none like him among all the kings of Judah after him, nor among those who were before him. 6 For he held fast to the LORD. He did not depart from following him, but kept the commandments that the LORD commanded Moses. 7 And the LORD was with him; wherever he went out, he prospered. He rebelled against the king of Assyria and would not serve him. 8 He struck down the Philistines as far as Gaza and its territory, from watchtower to fortified city. 9 In the fourth year of King Hezekiah, which was the seventh year of Hoshea son of Elah, king of Israel, Shalmaneser king of Assyria came up against Samaria and besieged it, 10 and at the end of three years he took it. In the sixth year of Hezekiah, which was the ninth year of Hoshea king of Israel, Samaria was taken. 11 The king of Assyria carried the Israelites away to Assyria and put them in Halah, and on the Habor, the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes, 12 because they did not obey the voice of the LORD their God but transgressed his covenant, even all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded. They neither listened nor obeyed. Sennacherib Attacks Judah 13 In the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah, Sennacherib king of Assyria came up against all the fortified cities of Judah and took them. 14 And Hezekiah king of Judah sent to the king of Assyria at Lachish, saying, “I have done wrong; withdraw from me. Whatever you impose on me I will bear.” And the king of Assyria required of Hezekiah king of Judah three hundred talents2 of silver and thirty talents of gold. 15 And Hezekiah gave him all the silver that was found in the house of the LORD and in the treasuries of the king's house. 16 At that time Hezekiah stripped the gold from the doors of the temple of the LORD and from the doorposts that Hezekiah king of Judah had overlaid and gave it to the king of Assyria. 17 And the king of Assyria sent the Tartan, the Rab-saris, and the Rabshakeh with a great army from Lachish to King Hezekiah at Jerusalem. And they went up and came to Jerusalem. When they arrived, they came and stood by the conduit of the upper pool, which is on the highway to the Washer's Field. 18 And when they called for the king, there came out to them Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, who was over the household, and Shebnah the secretary, and Joah the son of Asaph, the recorder. 19 And the Rabshakeh said to them, “Say to Hezekiah, ‘Thus says the great king, the king of Assyria: On what do you rest this trust of yours? 20 Do you think that mere words are strategy and power for war? In whom do you now trust, that you have rebelled against me? 21 Behold, you are trusting now in Egypt, that broken reed of a staff, which will pierce the hand of any man who leans on it. Such is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who trust in him. 22 But if you say to me, “We trust in the LORD our God,” is it not he whose high places and altars Hezekiah has removed, saying to Judah and to Jerusalem, “You shall worship before this altar in Jerusalem”? 23 Come now, make a wager with my master the king of Assyria: I will give you two thousand horses, if you are able on your part to set riders on them. 24 How then can you repulse a single captain among the least of my master's servants, when you trust in Egypt for chariots and for horsemen? 25 Moreover, is it without the LORD that I have come up against this place to destroy it? The LORD said to me, “Go up against this land and destroy it.”'” 26 Then Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, and Shebnah, and Joah, said to the Rabshakeh, “Please speak to your servants in Aramaic, for we understand it. Do not speak to us in the language of Judah within the hearing of the people who are on the wall.” 27 But the Rabshakeh said to them, “Has my master sent me to speak these words to your master and to you, and not to the men sitting on the wall, who are doomed with you to eat their own dung and to drink their own urine?” 28 Then the Rabshakeh stood and called out in a loud voice in the language of Judah: “Hear the word of the great king, the king of Assyria! 29 Thus says the king: ‘Do not let Hezekiah deceive you, for he will not be able to deliver you out of my3 hand. 30 Do not let Hezekiah make you trust in the LORD by saying, The LORD will surely deliver us, and this city will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.' 31 Do not listen to Hezekiah, for thus says the king of Assyria: ‘Make your peace with me4 and come out to me. Then each one of you will eat of his own vine, and each one of his own fig tree, and each one of you will drink the water of his own cistern, 32 until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of grain and wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of olive trees and honey, that you may live, and not die. And do not listen to Hezekiah when he misleads you by saying, “The LORD will deliver us.” 33 Has any of the gods of the nations ever delivered his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria? 34 Where are the gods of Hamath and Arpad? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivvah? Have they delivered Samaria out of my hand? 35 Who among all the gods of the lands have delivered their lands out of my hand, that the LORD should deliver Jerusalem out of my hand?'” 36 But the people were silent and answered him not a word, for the king's command was, “Do not answer him.” 37 Then Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, who was over the household, and Shebna the secretary, and Joah the son of Asaph, the recorder, came to Hezekiah with their clothes torn and told him the words of the Rabshakeh.

Final Instructions and Greetings 17 I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. 18 For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites,6 and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive. 19 For your obedience is known to all, so that I rejoice over you, but I want you to be wise as to what is good and innocent as to what is evil. 20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 21 Timothy, my fellow worker, greets you; so do Lucius and Jason and Sosipater, my kinsmen. 22 I Tertius, who wrote this letter, greet you in the Lord. 23 Gaius, who is host to me and to the whole church, greets you.
