ESV: Digging Deep into the Bible
Psalms and Wisdom: Psalm 49 Psalm 49 (Listen) Why Should I Fear in Times of Trouble? To the choirmaster. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. 49 Hear this, all peoples! Give ear, all inhabitants of the world,2 both low and high, rich and poor together!3 My mouth shall speak wisdom; the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.4 I will incline my ear to a proverb; I will solve my riddle to the music of the lyre. 5 Why should I fear in times of trouble, when the iniquity of those who cheat me surrounds me,6 those who trust in their wealth and boast of the abundance of their riches?7 Truly no man can ransom another, or give to God the price of his life,8 for the ransom of their life is costly and can never suffice,9 that he should live on forever and never see the pit. 10 For he sees that even the wise die; the fool and the stupid alike must perish and leave their wealth to others.11 Their graves are their homes forever,1 their dwelling places to all generations, though they called lands by their own names.12 Man in his pomp will not remain; he is like the beasts that perish. 13 This is the path of those who have foolish confidence; yet after them people approve of their boasts.2 Selah14 Like sheep they are appointed for Sheol; death shall be their shepherd, and the upright shall rule over them in the morning. Their form shall be consumed in Sheol, with no place to dwell.15 But God will ransom my soul from the power of Sheol, for he will receive me. Selah 16 Be not afraid when a man becomes rich, when the glory of his house increases.17 For when he dies he will carry nothing away; his glory will not go down after him.18 For though, while he lives, he counts himself blessed —and though you get praise when you do well for yourself—19 his soul will go to the generation of his fathers, who will never again see light.20 Man in his pomp yet without understanding is like the beasts that perish. Footnotes  49:11 Septuagint, Syriac, Targum; Hebrew Their inward thought was that their homes were forever  49:13 Or and of those after them who approve of their boasts (ESV) Pentateuch and History: Genesis 44 Genesis 44 (Listen) Joseph Tests His Brothers 44 Then he commanded the steward of his house, “Fill the men's sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put each man's money in the mouth of his sack, 2 and put my cup, the silver cup, in the mouth of the sack of the youngest, with his money for the grain.” And he did as Joseph told him. 3 As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away with their donkeys. 4 They had gone only a short distance from the city. Now Joseph said to his steward, “Up, follow after the men, and when you overtake them, say to them, ‘Why have you repaid evil for good?1 5 Is it not from this that my lord drinks, and by this that he practices divination? You have done evil in doing this.'” 6 When he overtook them, he spoke to them these words. 7 They said to him, “Why does my lord speak such words as these? Far be it from your servants to do such a thing! 8 Behold, the money that we found in the mouths of our sacks we brought back to you from the land of Canaan. How then could we steal silver or gold from your lord's house? 9 Whichever of your servants is found with it shall die, and we also will be my lord's servants.” 10 He said, “Let it be as you say: he who is found with it shall be my servant, and the rest of you shall be innocent.” 11 Then each man quickly lowered his sack to the ground, and each man opened his sack. 12 And he searched, beginning with the eldest and ending with the youngest. And the cup was found in Benjamin's sack. 13 Then they tore their clothes, and every man loaded his donkey, and they returned to the city. 14 When Judah and his brothers came to Joseph's house, he was still there. They fell before him to the ground. 15 Joseph said to them, “What deed is this that you have done? Do you not know that a man like me can indeed practice divination?” 16 And Judah said, “What shall we say to my lord? What shall we speak? Or how can we clear ourselves? God has found out the guilt of your servants; behold, we are my lord's servants, both we and he also in whose hand the cup has been found.” 17 But he said, “Far be it from me that I should do so! Only the man in whose hand the cup was found shall be my servant. But as for you, go up in peace to your father.” 18 Then Judah went up to him and said, “Oh, my lord, please let your servant speak a word in my lord's ears, and let not your anger burn against your servant, for you are like Pharaoh himself. 19 My lord asked his servants, saying, ‘Have you a father, or a brother?' 20 And we said to my lord, ‘We have a father, an old man, and a young brother, the child of his old age. His brother is dead, and he alone is left of his mother's children, and his father loves him.' 21 Then you said to your servants, ‘Bring him down to me, that I may set my eyes on him.' 22 We said to my lord, ‘The boy cannot leave his father, for if he should leave his father, his father would die.' 23 Then you said to your servants, ‘Unless your youngest brother comes down with you, you shall not see my face again.' 24 “When we went back to your servant my father, we told him the words of my lord. 25 And when our father said, ‘Go again, buy us a little food,' 26 we said, ‘We cannot go down. If our youngest brother goes with us, then we will go down. For we cannot see the man's face unless our youngest brother is with us.' 27 Then your servant my father said to us, ‘You know that my wife bore me two sons. 28 One left me, and I said, “Surely he has been torn to pieces,” and I have never seen him since. 29 If you take this one also from me, and harm happens to him, you will bring down my gray hairs in evil to Sheol.' 30 “Now therefore, as soon as I come to your servant my father, and the boy is not with us, then, as his life is bound up in the boy's life, 31 as soon as he sees that the boy is not with us, he will die, and your servants will bring down the gray hairs of your servant our father with sorrow to Sheol. 32 For your servant became a pledge of safety for the boy to my father, saying, ‘If I do not bring him back to you, then I shall bear the blame before my father all my life.' 33 Now therefore, please let your servant remain instead of the boy as a servant to my lord, and let the boy go back with his brothers. 34 For how can I go back to my father if the boy is not with me? I fear to see the evil that would find my father.” Footnotes  44:4 Septuagint (compare Vulgate) adds Why have you stolen my silver cup? (ESV) Chronicles and Prophets: 2 Chronicles 22 2 Chronicles 22 (Listen) Ahaziah Reigns in Judah 22 And the inhabitants of Jerusalem made Ahaziah, his youngest son, king in his place, for the band of men that came with the Arabians to the camp had killed all the older sons. So Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah reigned. 2 Ahaziah was twenty-two1 years old when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Athaliah, the granddaughter of Omri. 3 He also walked in the ways of the house of Ahab, for his mother was his counselor in doing wickedly. 4 He did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, as the house of Ahab had done. For after the death of his father they were his counselors, to his undoing. 5 He even followed their counsel and went with Jehoram the son of Ahab king of Israel to make war against Hazael king of Syria at Ramoth-gilead. And the Syrians wounded Joram, 6 and he returned to be healed in Jezreel of the wounds that he had received at Ramah, when he fought against Hazael king of Syria. And Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah went down to see Joram the son of Ahab in Jezreel, because he was wounded. 7 But it was ordained by2 God that the downfall of Ahaziah should come about through his going to visit Joram. For when he came there, he went out with Jehoram to meet Jehu the son of Nimshi, whom the LORD had anointed to destroy the house of Ahab. 8 And when Jehu was executing judgment on the house of Ahab, he met the princes of Judah and the sons of Ahaziah's brothers, who attended Ahaziah, and he killed them. 9 He searched for Ahaziah, and he was captured while hiding in Samaria, and he was brought to Jehu and put to death. They buried him, for they said, “He is the grandson of Jehoshaphat, who sought the LORD with all his heart.” And the house of Ahaziah had no one able to rule the kingdom. Athaliah Reigns in Judah 10 Now when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the royal family of the house of Judah. 11 But Jehoshabeath,3 the daughter of the king, took Joash the son of Ahaziah and stole him away from among the king's sons who were about to be put to death, and she put him and his nurse in a bedroom. Thus Jehoshabeath, the daughter of King Jehoram and wife of Jehoiada the priest, because she was a sister of Ahaziah, hid him4 from Athaliah, so that she did not put him to death. 12 And he remained with them six years, hidden in the house of God, while Athaliah reigned over the land. Footnotes  22:2 See 2 Kings 8:26; Hebrew forty-two; Septuagint twenty  22:7 Hebrew was from  22:11 Spelled Jehosheba in 2 Kings 11:2  22:11 That is, Joash (ESV) Gospels and Epistles: Acts 15:36–17:15 Acts 15:36–17:15 (Listen) Paul and Barnabas Separate 36 And after some days Paul said to Barnabas, “Let us return and visit the brothers in every city where we proclaimed the word of the Lord, and see how they are.” 37 Now Barnabas wanted to take with them John called Mark. 38 But Paul thought best not to take with them one who had withdrawn from them in Pamphylia and had not gone with them to the work. 39 And there arose a sharp disagreement, so that they separated from each other. Barnabas took Mark with him and sailed away to Cyprus, 40 but Paul chose Silas and departed, having been commended by the brothers to the grace of the Lord. 41 And he went through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening the churches. Timothy Joins Paul and Silas 16 Paul1 came also to Derbe and to Lystra. A disciple was there, named Timothy, the son of a Jewish woman who was a believer, but his father was a Greek. 2 He was well spoken of by the brothers2 at Lystra and Iconium. 3 Paul wanted Timothy to accompany him, and he took him and circumcised him because of the Jews who were in those places, for they all knew that his father was a Greek. 4 As they went on their way through the cities, they delivered to them for observance the decisions that had been reached by the apostles and elders who were in Jerusalem. 5 So the churches were strengthened in the faith, and they increased in numbers daily. The Macedonian Call 6 And they went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia. 7 And when they had come up to Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them. 8 So, passing by Mysia, they went down to Troas. 9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night: a man of Macedonia was standing there, urging him and saying, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” 10 And when Paul3 had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go on into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them. The Conversion of Lydia 11 So, setting sail from Troas, we made a direct voyage to Samothrace, and the following day to Neapolis, 12 and from there to Philippi, which is a leading city of the4 district of Macedonia and a Roman colony. We remained in this city some days. 13 And on the Sabbath day we went outside the gate to the riverside, where we supposed there was a place of prayer, and we sat down and spoke to the women who had come together. 14 One who heard us was a woman named Lydia, from the city of Thyatira, a seller of purple goods, who was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what was said by Paul. 15 And after she was baptized, and her household as well, she urged us, saying, “If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come to my house and stay.” And she prevailed upon us. Paul and Silas in Prison 16 As we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who had a spirit of divination and brought her owners much gain by fortune-telling. 17 She followed Paul and us, crying out, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to you the way of salvation.” 18 And this she kept doing for many days. Paul, having become greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And it came out that very hour. 19 But when her owners saw that their hope of gain was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace before the rulers. 20 And when they had brought them to the magistrates, they said, “These men are Jews, and they are disturbing our city. 21 They advocate customs that are not lawful for us as Romans to accept or practice.” 22 The crowd joined in attacking them, and the magistrates tore the garments off them and gave orders to beat them with rods. 23 And when they had inflicted many blows upon them, they threw them into prison, ordering the jailer to keep them safely. 24 Having received this order, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. The Philippian Jailer Converted 25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them, 26 and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken. And immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone's bonds were unfastened. 27 When the jailer woke and saw that the prison doors were open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself, supposing that the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, “Do not harm yourself, for we are all here.” 29 And the jailer5 called for lights and rushed in, and trembling with fear he fell down before Paul and Silas. 30 Then he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” 31 And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.” 32 And they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house. 33 And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their wounds; and he was baptized at once, he and all his family. 34 Then he brought them up into his house and set food before them. And he rejoiced along with his entire household that he had believed in God. 35 But when it was day, the magistrates sent the police, saying, “Let those men go.” 36 And the jailer reported these words to Paul, saying, “The magistrates have sent to let you go. Therefore come out now and go in peace.” 37 But Paul said to them, “They have beaten us publicly, uncondemned, men who are Roman citizens, and have thrown us into prison; and do they now throw us out secretly? No! Let them come themselves and take us out.” 38 The police reported these words to the magistrates, and they were afraid when they heard that they were Roman citizens. 39 So they came and apologized to them. And they took them out and asked them to leave the city. 40 So they went out of the prison and visited Lydia. And when they had seen the brothers, they encouraged them and departed. Paul and Silas in Thessalonica 17 Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews. 2 And Paul went in, as was his custom, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures, 3 explaining and proving that it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead, and saying, “This Jesus, whom I proclaim to you, is the Christ.” 4 And some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, as did a great many of the devout Greeks and not a few of the leading women. 5 But the Jews6 were jealous, and taking some wicked men of the rabble, they formed a mob, set the city in an uproar, and attacked the house of Jason, seeking to bring them out to the crowd. 6 And when they could not find them, they dragged Jason and some of the brothers before the city authorities, shouting, “These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also, 7 and Jason has received them, and they are all acting against the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus.” 8 And the people and the city authorities were disturbed when they heard these things. 9 And when they had taken money as security from Jason and the rest, they let them go. Paul and Silas in Berea 10 The brothers7 immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea, and when they arrived they went into the Jewish synagogue. 11 Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so. 12 Many of them therefore believed, with not a few Greek women of high standing as well as men. 13 But when the Jews from Thessalonica learned that the word of God was proclaimed by Paul at Berea also, they came there too, agitating and stirring up the crowds. 14 Then the brothers immediately sent Paul off on his way to the sea, but Silas and Timothy remained there. 15 Those who conducted Paul brought him as far as Athens, and after receiving a command for Silas and Timothy to come to him as soon as possible, they departed. Footnotes  16:1 Greek He  16:2 Or brothers and sisters; also verse 40  16:10 Greek he  16:12 Or that  16:29 Greek he  17:5 Greek Ioudaioi probably refers here to Jewish religious leaders, and others under their influence, in that time; also verse 13  17:10 Or brothers and sisters; also verse 14 (ESV)
Lake Ridge Community Church Podcast
[00:00:03.130] - Speaker 1Hi there. My name is Preston Pouteaux. Welcome to the Lake Ridge Community Church Podcast. This is where we share some of our messages from Sunday mornings. So we're glad you're here to listen.[00:00:14.210] - Speaker 1We'd love for you to join us in person. We meet on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m at Our Lady of Wisdom School here in Chestermere. At our core, we're a community of people, so we gather on on Sundays, but we also do a lot in the week. Together. We are people learning to follow Jesus and love our city.[00:00:31.080] - Speaker 1So to learn more, visit lakeridgecommunity.com. Hope to check in and visit with you soon. Take care. Thanks for listening.[00:00:44.340] - Speaker 1I feel like I'm going through a bit of a renaissance of Jesus. Have you ever had those moments in your life where it's like, Jesus means more than he did before? Something is moving in you? Have you ever had that season of life? They're precious seasons because I've also had the seasons where it's kind of wintry and dry and you wonder if Jesus is anywhere.[00:01:02.760] - Speaker 1Some days I feel like I was explained to somebody, was like, what's it like to be a pastor? And I was like, sometimes it's like standing in a shower that's a hot water and cold water coming out of two direct faucets. So you're grateful that you're standing under hot water, but you're also standing under cold water. Do you kind of get the picture there? There's a lot that comes at us and I think Jesus meets us in it all.[00:01:27.010] - Speaker 1Hey. We are on a journey where we are, I called it Mission Friends. This is a phrase that is ancient in the covenant and piatism who we are. It was a phrase that was used and we are wrestling with what it is to be human, and it's hard to be human sometimes. We're standing under the hot and cold tap of life.[00:01:46.030] - Speaker 1There's something good and cold coming at us at the same time. We're like, how do I hold all these things? So we're taking a look a little bit here at Scripture and we're deeply diving in and we're going to be also exploring some wisdom, I think, from those who have gone before us. I'm a bit of a space nerd. I like spaces in my room growing up.[00:02:06.330] - Speaker 1My kids want to ask me all the time, like, what was your room like growing up? And I had Mum and dad put a big mural on the wall and it was like a spaceship overlooking Earth. And I would lay there pretending that I am like a spaceman or something, right? It was really cool and I loved it a lot. One of the things I really loved too, was space.[00:02:27.870] - Speaker 1Learning about space probes. Going to Mars as a young boy would track with every single one that would happen, and I still do. I have a little, like, notification to know if something's launching because that means I got to wait a few months and it's going to eventually get there and then I can follow up with this and it's really cool. Do you know how violent it is for something to travel, launch off, travel and then land? It is a multimillion dollar, sometimes billion dollar project to get something.[00:02:55.330] - Speaker 1It's the most important mission that some people spend their entire lives working on. And then they blast it off, hope it doesn't explode, hope it survives radiation and everything. Then it has to land in some violent way and stop on the planet. And when it gets there, do you know the first thing almost every single probe does when it lands? It puts out its solar panels and soaks up the sun.[00:03:22.580] - Speaker 1What an interesting thing. One of the first things that this thing, which has a very important mission to do, it has a long list of things it's to accomplish, but what's its first thing it does? It stops and soaks up the sun. It does a whole check of its systems and they run everything through and they do the smallest little things to make sure this thing is ready. The biggest challenge to anything going to Mars is dust, something that would build up over time on its solar panels, because the second those solar panels can't receive the sun anymore, the ticking time bomb is on, that this mission is over.[00:03:58.000] - Speaker 1I think we are people who are called to sit and soak up the sun. Your life is so important, what you are called to do here vital. There's no one else doing what you are doing right now. You are the one occupying your life. You are the one who's important to those around you.[00:04:14.390] - Speaker 1And your mission is vital. And yet sometimes we get on with it too quick before we know that we have to sit and soak in the sun, but to sit and find our place of rest in Jesus before we begin. This is not the way that the people of Israel were worshiping and coming close to living this one and beautiful life. In the Bible, Elijah was a prophet in a time of deep chaos, a time when there had been some good kings and then a series of bad kings, people named a kings named Ahab and Omri, his father. These were two leaders who were regarded terribly in the Bible for their leadership.[00:05:00.340] - Speaker 1They were kings that were on a mission of almost destruction. They disregarded God so deeply it led to assassinations and suicide and war. And at the end, these two were considered, it says in the Bible, they did more evil than all who were before them. There's a brutal vision of leadership that happens in the book of first Kings.[00:05:28.800] - Speaker 1Here they were a father and a son, Ahab and Omri. And one of the things that they did was they set up the nation to be economically stable for the first time, in a long time, they had established some trade routes and they were pretty good. For the first time ever, they were maybe rolling in some of the cash. They could build some things, they were building cities, and these cities were prospering. But these leaders were not going the way of god.[00:05:57.160] - Speaker 1They set up new places of worship. They actually were no longer just worshiping in Jerusalem, but they set up some new temples and some high places. High places were like these shrines, places where you could go and pray no longer with the whole community, but off to the side. You could go and have your own personal experience of god. But these gods weren't enough.[00:06:19.120] - Speaker 1These gods, the god of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob Yahweh, this this god was not, not exciting enough, actually. So they came up with they found two other gods that they could kind of come alongside, the god Ball and the god of Astreth. And I've been to some archeologists, have found some of these shrines and you can see there's like a rock for Ball of us. And they would often have a place where they'd put up a stick for Ashworth. And these are this, these are the types of gods that they would worship.[00:06:49.960] - Speaker 1It's one thing to be worshiping an idol, but these gods, these gods suited their every need. You see, Ball and Ashworth, they were ashworth was a sex goddess. And they would set up this sex goddess beside and they had a whole new way of worship. You see, it's the first time worship is given as a consumable experience. Worship is not coming and sitting beside god and saying god, I love you, shape me, let me follow you, let me live this one and beautiful life with, you know, Ball and Asterisk.[00:07:22.500] - Speaker 1These gods of this time, these were gods of convenient consumption, a consumable experience. Instead of prayer and songs of trust, it was self gratifying products. You were coming to get something out of these gods, not coming to set yourself before them. Eugene Peterson put it like this. He says, when you are terror stricken, you offer a sacrifice.[00:07:48.300] - Speaker 1When you're anxious about your crops, you make a visit to the temple prostitute. When you're joyful, you ingest the wind god feelings called the tune. Fears of panic, of terror, of desire and enthusiasm. You see, you were in charge of your worship experience under ahab and omri. These gods were simply there to appease your anxiety, meet your needs of your self governed life.[00:08:14.970] - Speaker 1You were in charge. They didn't care about you, they didn't want you around, but they were there. And if you brought something to them, they might see you for a second, but they don't like you. It's an ultimate religion for a world in chaos, actually, a world of wealth, a me world. It's perfect for those who want to get something out of their worship experience at their own pace.[00:08:40.070] - Speaker 1On their own terms and their own pleasure. As a result, the nation was in freefall. They finally had everything that they wanted. They had homes, they had gardens, they had all of these things. But they forgot that it wasn't all about him.[00:08:54.960] - Speaker 1And it says in one King 16, it provoked the Lord to anger. I sometimes get angry. I sometimes do. I sometimes do for the wrong reasons. Sometimes I do for the right reasons.[00:09:07.070] - Speaker 1I'm like, no, you smacking your sister around. That is not allowed in the putto home. That's not how we do things, right? God was angry because he's like, you guys treating each other like this, you guys treating this beautiful thing of faith into something that's just consumable. No, that isn't going to work here because it's going to destroy you.[00:09:27.810] - Speaker 1And it already was. God intended a better way. Not a frenetic religion reacting to a world in chaos and negotiating with these transacting idols, but a relationship that establishes peace, creates a land and a place of fruitfulness, a community of people who came together and trusted God and each other. A place where wrongs are set right, where love for God flourishes. Worship was always meant to be about awe and wonder, about beauty, with God leading the conversation and us responding, not the other way around.[00:10:10.920] - Speaker 1God imagine sex and food and friendship and money and work and government as a garden that flourishes when God's people have a right relationship with him, not to take what you can while you can and spit out the rest kind of world. So in comes Elijah into this story and we get a sense that he's called by God and he gives a sermon. It's the best sermon you've ever heard because it's only 17 words long in the original one, right? I bet you guys are like, man press. You can really take a page out of Elijah's preaching here, right?[00:10:47.460] - Speaker 1Quick and easy. Let's take a look here at what his sermon was. So he goes to Ahab and he preaches. The sermon is quick, it's easy. In, out, done.[00:11:00.070] - Speaker 1And he tackles a big topic here. This is what happens now, Elijah, who is from Tischbe in Gilad, in Gilead, told King Ahab, here's a sermon. As surely as the Lord God of Israel lives, the God I serve, there will be no due or reign during the next few years until I give the word full message. Amen and close, right? I'm going to read it again.[00:11:27.520] - Speaker 1As surely as the Lord God of Israel lives, the God I serve, there will be no due or rain during the next few years until I give the word. Here he is giving his sermon. And you can imagine, well, if you lived in this time, you would know what that is because did you know that Ball was a God of rain? This sermon is directly related to his God, this God that has utterly turned everybody's hearts away from the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He's saying, a drought is coming.[00:12:06.220] - Speaker 1You see, this is the one thing that no idols or no new cities or no thriving economy could do without, and that was rain water. It would, in the words of Eugene Peterson, a drought would advertise the barrenness of these fertility gods. It would utterly show them up and say, this is a barren way to relate with God. It does not work. No orgies or fertility gods here.[00:12:34.760] - Speaker 1No life without God's provision. You see, life was on God's terms, not cheapened, destructive, selfish religion on my terms. Something that would masquerade as life. No, the masquerading is over. And Elijah comes with this message to say, party over.[00:12:55.180] - Speaker 1Instead of sticking around to see if the king likes his message, he gets out of Dodge. This is what I do after most of my sermons, right? Drop the mic, I'm out of here. Right? I get a lot of texts after, and they are often very awesome, but he was not on it.[00:13:13.140] - Speaker 1You see, he just said that everything about their whole scheme of anxiety driven, seeking to get something from God for them alone, without loving others and using up what they have in front of them, well, it led to this one. King 17, two to six. I'm going to read what happens next. And the Lord said to Elijah, go to the east and hide by Kerath Brook, near where it enters the Jordan River. Drink from the brook and eat what the ravens bring you.[00:13:44.930] - Speaker 1Pride commanded them to bring you food. So Elijah did as the Lord told him and count beside Carth Brook, east of the Jordan. The ravens brought him bread and meat each morning and evening, and he drank from the brook. He goes out. God sends him to this little hideaway place, a brook, little campsite where he's going to go, and something kind of interesting happens.[00:14:12.260] - Speaker 1God provides for him with, of all things, ravens. This is a Halloween decoration that I put outside of my home, but I pulled it out of my stuff because I think it was really, really cool. Ravens. Ravens are considered dirty animals. A good Jew would not ever eat a raven, for sure.[00:14:31.330] - Speaker 1Probably not want to be touched by one. And in the Bible, these birds are bringing something. They're probably not bringing chicken McNuggets. Right? What are they finding?[00:14:41.400] - Speaker 1I don't know. I don't know. Some people think that they might have been bringing carrion stuff that they found. Right. They might have been bringing meat, something that they found on the side of the road.[00:14:53.110] - Speaker 1Roadkill, right. But they were bringing meat to Elijah, and here he was with his raven friends. I have some art here by an artist that has done several pieces around this. I wonder if he could put it up. I love this picture of these ravens.[00:15:09.410] - Speaker 1And they come in with, like, a ton of character in this art, don't they? They're, they're kind of bouncing in. And here's Elijah gave his big sermon and said, well, the way of the King is not working here. God's way is going to be better. And here's this like hoard of ravens coming in with their treats.[00:15:26.080] - Speaker 1God commanded them. God said, go and bring some food over to Elijah. I think I have another one similar to this one's. Quite beautiful too. There's a lot going on in it.[00:15:37.620] - Speaker 1But here he's sitting and he has these books beside him and this raven who's coming gently. I just like the way that the artist has kind of captured these ravens who seem to be holding this holy space, holding together his humanity. They're feeding him, they're giving him food so that he can live, providing for him. God gives Elijah what he needs to live. And more than that, God talks with Elijah.[00:16:11.740] - Speaker 1He's telling him what to do. Go east to the kerath brook, drink from the book, eat from the ravens. I've commanded them to bring you food, provision and conversation. In a world where religion has been cheapened, where worship is something selfish, God is reestablishing. I think with Elijah real worship isn't he something relational, where people come, where Elijah comes and he receives from this dirty raven who turns out to be the one that's restoring his life.[00:16:45.640] - Speaker 1God's doing this life and love, friendship and hope, care and faith. It's here at Carthbrook. Have you ever had a kerath brook in your life? A place where you had to run and flee to, where you maybe something happened in your life and you shrunk down and you felt like everything was taken from you and suddenly God was the one who provided for you a little safe haven.[00:17:12.720] - Speaker 1Those are precious moments. Maybe right now you are in a place where you're wondering if you have a kerath brook. You're wondering if you have a safe place to go and flee to Elijah. He gets his relationship with God. He knows God provides.[00:17:29.720] - Speaker 1He does not need to free coat every day. He knows God is a table setting God who loves to be hospitable with his friends. Imagine having ravens that come. Just imagine sitting there and every day having this little guy hop over with you. Hop, hop, hop, hop.[00:17:47.420] - Speaker 1Spit something out. It would be a reminder. You would probably start to giggle a little bit and go, how did I end up here with this little raven bringing me a little I didn't plan for this. I thought my life might have been over. The God or the King is after me and here hop, hop, hop.[00:18:06.240] - Speaker 1I got fresh water, got these ravens and I'm fed. I think this is a tremendously beautiful way that God is providing. Surprising way.[00:18:24.170] - Speaker 1I remember once I was very broke. I went to seminary. Anybody goes to seminary? Anybody here? Yeah.[00:18:30.450] - Speaker 1That means you were broke for a good chunk of time. And I was and I remember I had nothing, like, very, very little. And I remember I was out and my car had hail damage, and I remember just being like, no, right? And the prayer of sometimes people in my position is we think that God should treat us a little bit better because, well, we are working for the big guy, right? Working for the big guy.[00:18:56.390] - Speaker 1I at least ought to be within his, like, inner rolodex of people. But here I am sitting under hail, and my car is just getting pounded. I'm going, Duh. Couldn't the hail have gone around me? Couldn't God have done that?[00:19:10.840] - Speaker 1And I prayed all those prayers. Maybe you prayed those two, and guess what? Insurance kicked in and I got money. It was a little moment. And I was like, what a funny thing.[00:19:25.150] - Speaker 1It wasn't a Kerath Brooke moment, but it was definitely this silly little moment that snapped me out of my selfish little myopic view of what God is doing, that if I just pray a certain thing, god will help me avoid all the hard stuff. God's like, no, no, you're going to go through the hard stuff and I'm going to cover you. I'm going to meet you. Psalm 34 says, many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. It's not going to be easy.[00:19:51.270] - Speaker 1Even now, Kelly is quite sick, and it doesn't look like it's getting better. And yet we were laughing this week, even in the middle of it all, because we came across some new things that doctors are doing to help her get better. And we're laughing. We're like god always seems to meet us everywhere we turn. This is bad, but we're laughing in this.[00:20:11.340] - Speaker 1We're being met. We've been met more than halfway. Ways that I didn't expect to be provided for, ways that I didn't think Jesus would still talk to me. And God is sending me ravens in the midst of my sorrow. I think it is elegant.[00:20:28.290] - Speaker 1I think God meets us in elegant ways. I think ravens are an elegant way. And I think God meeting Preston and Kelly in our story at this time, it is elegant. And we need to have a moment to stop and go, wow, how is God meeting you elegantly and going, wow, I was here and now I am here. I'm grateful for it.[00:20:49.690] - Speaker 1Has God met you with ravens? Maybe you're in a season where you do not know what you are doing next. Has God prepared a brook and ravens for you?[00:21:00.430] - Speaker 1I think it's interesting that Jesus, he built into some of his messages this story, the story of Ravens. And we read it earlier and Shay read it for us. Luke 1224. I love what Jesus says, and I think anybody that would have known their history would have known about a raven showing up.[00:21:24.550] - Speaker 1He says, this. Look at the ravens. They don't plant or harvest or store food in barns for God feeds them and you are far more valuable to him than any birds. I think people have been like, oh, ravens. Jesus's friend Elijah was cared for.[00:21:46.590] - Speaker 1The early Piatists are people who I think characterize this living faith in Jesus. We come from this roots of Piatism and there's a person named Philip Spinner who is kind of the grandfather, the granddaddy of Piatism. And he came to faith in the faith of Jesus like Elijah. He said it's by no means enough to have knowledge of the Christian faith. For Christianity exists rather of practice.[00:22:13.830] - Speaker 1Practice. He wanted to become a practicing Christian. You know what a practicing Christian is? It's a have a conversation with God by the brook kind of Christian. That's what a practicing Christian is.[00:22:27.450] - Speaker 1Somebody who knows how to find themselves at the brook and receive from God not frantically fussing around, worried about if we can peace God enough or if he will be there or if that hailstorm is going to leave lasting damage. No. A practicing Christian. What what Philip Spinner wanted was he wanted to be one who was like Elijah, who could sit with Jesus in peace and walk to this world in peace. And this is a guy who did not know peace.[00:22:55.250] - Speaker 1He was born near the end of something called the 30 Years War. All of Europe, the 16 hundreds, was inflamed. They say between four and a half and 8 million people died. Half of all of Germany was dead by the end of the 30 year war, catholics and Protestants were at each other. But at that point it didn't even mean anything anymore.[00:23:15.730] - Speaker 1These religious groups were just symbols for political fighting. There was so much fighting, so much fighting, in fact, that it had torn everything apart. And here just after this comes a guy named Philip Spinner and he decides that he's going to become a pastor. Fool to become a pastor in a time when everything is divisive, no one's going to pay any attention to what he has to say. Who wants to turn and sit with Jesus when the whole world is in fire?[00:23:47.170] - Speaker 1Well, here he goes. And he was known as a very well known guy in this time polarize Christopher Gertz. He writes that he says he had seen neighbors turn violently upon neighbors. He knew what it was like for people to be inclined towards vengeance rather than neighborly love. So it's in this context that he says, I think we should be a better church.[00:24:11.290] - Speaker 1I think we should. And so he actually comes up with six simple things, the most simple things. And we are actually my sermon series is based on this. First one is we have to read the Bible. We have to give the story of God into us again, we need to inhabit that story.[00:24:25.680] - Speaker 1Second one, it's not just a priest. We're all priests and that means we're all servants for one another. And the third one, the one that I'm preaching on today, is we need to know what it is to be loved by God so that we can love others. He asks that the church awaken in his words, a fervent love among our Christians, first towards one another and then towards all and put this love in practice. He says we got to accustomed people first to work, that is, inward to the laying out of the solar panels and then awaken love of God and neighbor.[00:25:05.410] - Speaker 1And so for him, his first thing was rest. After chaos he says we are frenetic in our seeking of what God wants. We need to rest. Like Elijah by the brook, pietis began turning to God to rest in his faithful care. Rest is not the antithesis of work.[00:25:22.690] - Speaker 1They had to rebuild so many things and pious were not lazy people. They worked hard. But rest is the start of our work. We can only rest after we put our solar panels out. We must be receptive to the presence of God if we're going to do the mission that's before us.[00:25:41.430] - Speaker 1I present myself to God and practice being present to the One who is always present in love for me. If we turn to God, then we can turn out to the world with God. I'm going to end with this story. Jesus had some friends too and he was trying to help them understand how to relate to him. And I think that they were pretty thick headed, probably a lot like me.[00:26:07.710] - Speaker 1Takes a long time to get through to me. It takes a lot of experiences for me to trust Jesus with my life. And so this story is one of Jesus taking his friends and he does something that I think is very profound. The story of the transfiguration says that six days later jesus took Peter and the two brothers, James and John, and led them up a high mountain to be alone. As the men watched, Jesus appearance was transformed so that his face shone like the sun and his clothes became as white as light.[00:26:43.310] - Speaker 1Suddenly get this suddenly I love this suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared and began talking with Jesus.[00:26:59.870] - Speaker 1I was thinking about this in the shower. I was crying again in the shower, but good thing I'm covered in water so I didn't have to. Here's Jesus. Can you imagine this? Jesus is here as a full human and he's trying to get his friends to come along.[00:27:14.120] - Speaker 1And his friends can barely understand Jesus. In fact they're often James and John. Not long around this time they were trying to call down firing brimstone on some of Jesus'neighbors. He's like no, you don't get it. Stick with me, I'll show you.[00:27:30.990] - Speaker 1We'll take another go at this. And here Jesus goes on a hill. Do you know who I think Jesus wants? To talk to. I think Jesus wants to talk to his friends.[00:27:40.670] - Speaker 1You know who Jesus friends were? Moses and Elijah. I think he's like, Man, I think he goes up and I'd love to hear what this is all pressed and filling it in here, but if Jesus is showing up with Moses and Elijah, two people who the Old Testament says talked to God, who sat by the brook, who Jesus fed with ravens, and they've had long conversations. They're friends of Jesus. And I think Jesus needed a moment with his friends.[00:28:09.430] - Speaker 1I think he's like, I got these yahoos with me. I miss you guys. I've been down here helping them understand what it is to love and sit with me, and here they are, wanting to destroy the world around them as though I'm some superpower to destroy things. I'm here to heal what is broken. And I think Jesus is there going, Guys, I need to talk to you.[00:28:31.550] - Speaker 1I need some sanity here. And the lie just like, Y'all, man, do you remember the time that I sat by the brook with the ravens? I was that was elegant. Yeah, I know. And I'm trying to provide for these guys.[00:28:40.710] - Speaker 1We're doing loaves and fishes and all this, but they don't understand. And guess what? In the middle of this conversation that they're having that's not recorded. But you can imagine Jesus is loving a little reprieve with his buddies, right? His buddies are probably comforting him, saying, Jesus, I know you're about to go through something hard.[00:28:59.270] - Speaker 1I know you're about to die for these people who you so love. Be encouraged, Jesus. Be encouraged. You I know it's going to hurt, but you're doing it for them and for us and for us all. And for those that aren't even here yet, jesus is like, I know.[00:29:14.170] - Speaker 1I know what my father's asked me to do. And here we are. And I think that they're chatting and then hearing it all. I love this. The absolute idiot.[00:29:21.700] - Speaker 1Peter. Peter exclaimed, Lord, it's wonderful for us to be here. And I think Jesus is like, can you see what I'm working with here? They can't even give me a moment peace with you guys and your peers. Like, if you don't hear me, Lord, it's wonderful for us to be here.[00:29:40.000] - Speaker 1If you want, I'll make three shelters. Yeah, we've got three shelters as memorials. One for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah. Yeah. Is that good?[00:29:51.510] - Speaker 1Yeah. Is that yeah. Three. We're gonna make three shrines here. I think Jesus like, they don't get it.[00:29:59.450] - Speaker 1They want to pop up a shrine. They want to come and transact as though that's what we're doing here. It's not what we're doing here. We're in a relationship of trust and love and provision and conversation, and they love popping up shrines everywhere. They don't know that we can have this friendship.[00:30:22.540] - Speaker 1I got a feeling Jesus came down well even as. He spoke, a bright cloud overshadowed them and a voice from the cloud said, this is my dearly loved son who brings me great joy. Listen to him. Listen. Come and sit by a brook and receive provision and listen.[00:30:48.820] - Speaker 1Listen to what he says. He knows the way. He says, love God and love neighbors. He says, turn the other cheek. He says a whole bunch of things and you just listen to him.[00:31:00.780] - Speaker 1He brings me so much joy that we're having a moment, Peter. And so shut your yap for a second and enjoy the beauty of being with Jesus. So many people would love to be in the position you are in and so many, the Bible says so many are going to come after who will not see Jesus. But their faith will be so much richer because they believe. Listen to him.[00:31:28.150] - Speaker 1Spender or Elijah could have been stirred up in a frenzy of chaos around them. But instead they both came to rest in God conversation, provision and ultimately love and life found in Christ.[00:31:47.380] - Speaker 1I want to invite Kate up to play and we're just going to pray and wrap up here. Where is your carth? Creek. Where is the place where God is saying come and have a nap and have a snack. I got you.[00:32:03.980] - Speaker 1Come and sit and get away with me. I got you your mind. Don't worry about setting up some temple for me. All I want to do is be here with you. I want to be your friend.[00:32:17.920] - Speaker 1I want to be your friend first. I want to be your Lord. I want to provide for you when you don't know which way it is. You see, these ravens, I think, were for Elijah an epiphany moment, that God was always working for his people, that God would always provide for his people because they are gifts from a giver who wants to know his people today. And I think that if we want to follow along and be these people who are mission friends, I think we need to find what it is to be loved first by a friend who loves us.[00:32:57.980] - Speaker 1I think when this happens, when you are friend with Jesus, you can learn what it is to be a friend to somebody beside you. You can learn how to walk with them. You can see the provision in their life. You can see the Kerath creek that God has brought them to and maybe you can go sit with them in that and point it out and say, man, you're loved, man you're provided for, you cried out and God met you more than halfway.[00:33:27.220] - Speaker 1Many of the afflictions of God's people, we always get delivered from the wrong. We are not frenzied by the noises that promise that we will get what we want. Rather, we are people who are at peace with God, who is our everything. Can you stand?[00:33:51.340] - Speaker 1I think God hears your prayers and I think God knows what you're going through. And I think God wants us to sit with you and talk to you before he says to you, can you go and do some great thing for me? I think he says, maybe the greatest thing you can do is come and sit with me. Spread out your hands and receive from me. Be recharged by me.[00:34:12.580] - Speaker 1I do not need a great performer. What I need as a community of people who trust me and who join me, may the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you. May Lord lift up his countenance upon you and grant you his peace by the brook of Kerath with some beautiful hopping ravens who've come to you and says you're going to be okay. Amen.[00:34:35.540] - Speaker 1Amen. Have a good week, everybody. Bless you. Amen.

1 Reyes 16:29-34 RVA2015(Por custión de espacio, leer todo el capitulo o los versos claves en su biblia).vs. 33-34. "En su tiempo Jiel de Betel reedificó Jericó. A costa de Abiram su primogénito puso los cimientos, y a costa de Segub su hijo menor colocó sus puertas, conforme a la palabra que el SEÑOR había hablado por medio de Josué hijo de Nun."------------------En este capítulo vemos un resumen de los reyes de Israel, Como el caos y la maldad dominaba en las tribus del norte. Aqui vemos como la violencia, la traición, el suicidio, la idolatría y otras cosas horrrorificas sucedieron en este periodo tan accidentado entre los que tenían una ambición descontrolada por el poder del reino.Acerca de las vidas de estos reyes, veremos más detalles en los siguientes capítulos, como por ejemplo de la vida de Acab y Jezabel, y sus múltiples pecados por la influencia diabólica de la idolatría a Baal.Notemos que estos reyes se iban degradando en sus maldades, y las escrituras remarcan que alguno de ellos eran más malos que sus antecesores. El personaje que más me impresiona es uno llamado Jiel de Bethel. De este hombre poderoso no se sabe mucho de su vida, pero sus acciones fueron tan impactantes y despreciables que quedaron registradas en la biblia. Y es que él estuvo dispuesto a pagar el precio de la reconstrucción de la ciudad de Jericó que Josué declaró como maldición. Ningún personaje por más malo que fuera se atrevió a reconstruir esta ciudad símbolo de la maldad y la maldición que representaba. Pero posiblemente por su geografía y su posición estratégica, o por desafiar la orden de Josué el antepasado líder, este hombre decidió sacrificar a sus hijos. Dos hijos perdieron la vida como precio para edificar Jericó. ¡Qué impresionante lo que un ser humano puede llegar a hacer por la ambición descontrolada de alcanzar una meta! ¡Qué triste ver o conocer las vidas de muchas personas que hoy en día han sacrificado las vidas espirituales o emocionales de sus hijos, de sus esposas, de sus hijas!Ningún logro que uno alcance, por más noble que parezca, podrá superar el valor de la vida de los miembros de su hogar. El abandono o negligencia emocional y espiritual abundan en nuestras congregaciones. Está bien que nos esforcemos y hagamos ciertos sacrificios de tiempo y dinero cuando comenzamos un proyecto, pero debemos ser sabios hasta donde llegamos con nuestros planes y proyectos. Nuestra familia puede tolerar ciertos cambios o decisiones para alcanzar algo a corto o mediano plazo, pero no olvidemos que debemos siempre medir el estado de nuestro hogar; qué síntomas estamos viendo que se están reflejando en el comportamiento de ellos. El vacío de la ausencia puede convertirse en una grieta tan grande que cuando uno reacciona la distancia es tan grande que podría ser demasiado tarde. Abramos nuestros ojos. Alimentemos a nuestra familia manteniendo una buena comunicación. Que entre todos trabajen por un bien común para el bienestar de la familia. No nos desemboquemos como un río desbordado hacia una meta, ignorando el corazón de los nuestros. Sea un ministerio, un negocio, un proyecto personal o aun el ayudar a otras personas es algo que trae bendición, prosperidad, y mucha satisfacción personal de éxito y progreso. Es hermoso celebrar esas victorias con cada miembro de tu hogar que estuvo de acuerdo en apoyarte para que hubieras podido llegar hasta donde estás. Pero sería una tragedia que no tengas con quien celebrar todo estos logros pues los descuidaste tanto que ya no están a tu lado. Están los cuerpos pero no sus corazones. Están físicamente ahí pero no su alma. Solo quedan las heridas, resentimientos, malos recuerdos y un sabor amargo en la copa del éxito. Todo porque los sacrificamos en el altar de la ambición egoísta y sin control, sin enfoque, sin propósito divino.Lo que estás haciendo, es un proyecto donde todos los miembros de tu hogar te apoyan?¿Estás dedicando tiempo de tu vida para fortalecer los lazos familiares?¿Están trabajando por el bien común?¿Se está formando una grieta vasta en el hogar? ¿Qué estás haciendo para repararla?Soy Eduardo Rodriguez

Psalms and Wisdom: Psalm 23 Psalm 23 (Listen) The Lord Is My Shepherd A Psalm of David. 23 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.2 He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.13 He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness2 for his name's sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,3 I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.6 Surely4 goodness and mercy5 shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell6 in the house of the LORD forever.7 Footnotes  23:2 Hebrew beside waters of rest  23:3 Or in right paths  23:4 Or the valley of deep darkness  23:6 Or Only  23:6 Or steadfast love  23:6 Or shall return to dwell  23:6 Hebrew for length of days (ESV) Pentateuch and History: Genesis 22 Genesis 22 (Listen) The Sacrifice of Isaac 22 After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” 2 He said, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” 3 So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac. And he cut the wood for the burnt offering and arose and went to the place of which God had told him. 4 On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place from afar. 5 Then Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; I and the boy1 will go over there and worship and come again to you.” 6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son. And he took in his hand the fire and the knife. So they went both of them together. 7 And Isaac said to his father Abraham, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” He said, “Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” 8 Abraham said, “God will provide for himself the lamb for a burnt offering, my son.” So they went both of them together. 9 When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built the altar there and laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. 10 Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his son. 11 But the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” 12 He said, “Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him, for now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me.” 13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him was a ram, caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son. 14 So Abraham called the name of that place, “The LORD will provide”;2 as it is said to this day, “On the mount of the LORD it shall be provided.”3 15 And the angel of the LORD called to Abraham a second time from heaven 16 and said, “By myself I have sworn, declares the LORD, because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17 I will surely bless you, and I will surely multiply your offspring as the stars of heaven and as the sand that is on the seashore. And your offspring shall possess the gate of his4 enemies, 18 and in your offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed my voice.” 19 So Abraham returned to his young men, and they arose and went together to Beersheba. And Abraham lived at Beersheba. 20 Now after these things it was told to Abraham, “Behold, Milcah also has borne children to your brother Nahor: 21 Uz his firstborn, Buz his brother, Kemuel the father of Aram, 22 Chesed, Hazo, Pildash, Jidlaph, and Bethuel.” 23 (Bethuel fathered Rebekah.) These eight Milcah bore to Nahor, Abraham's brother. 24 Moreover, his concubine, whose name was Reumah, bore Tebah, Gaham, Tahash, and Maacah.

He served for the first month. 4 Dodai the Ahohite1 was in charge of the division of the second month; in his division were 24,000. 5 The third commander, for the third month, was Benaiah, the son of Jehoiada the chief priest; in his division were 24,000. 6 This is the Benaiah who was a mighty man of the thirty and in command of the thirty; Ammizabad his son was in charge of his division.2 7 Asahel the brother of Joab was fourth, for the fourth month, and his son Zebadiah after him; in his division were 24,000. 8 The fifth commander, for the fifth month, was Shamhuth the Izrahite; in his division were 24,000. 9 Sixth, for the sixth month, was Ira, the son of Ikkesh the Tekoite; in his division were 24,000. 10 Seventh, for the seventh month, was Helez the Pelonite, of the sons of Ephraim; in his division were 24,000. 11 Eighth, for the eighth month, was Sibbecai the Hushathite, of the Zerahites; in his division were 24,000. 12 Ninth, for the ninth month, was Abiezer of Anathoth, a Benjaminite; in his division were 24,000. 13 Tenth, for the tenth month, was Maharai of Netophah, of the Zerahites; in his division were 24,000. 14 Eleventh, for the eleventh month, was Benaiah of Pirathon, of the sons of Ephraim; in his division were 24,000. 15 Twelfth, for the twelfth month, was Heldai the Netophathite, of Othniel; in his division were 24,000. Leaders of Tribes 16 Over the tribes of Israel, for the Reubenites, Eliezer the son of Zichri was chief officer; for the Simeonites, Shephatiah the son of Maacah; 17 for Levi, Hashabiah the son of Kemuel; for Aaron, Zadok; 18 for Judah, Elihu, one of David's brothers; for Issachar, Omri the son of Michael; 19 for Zebulun, Ishmaiah the son of Obadiah; for Naphtali, Jeremoth the son of Azriel; 20 for the Ephraimites, Hoshea the son of Azaziah; for the half-tribe of Manasseh, Joel the son of Pedaiah; 21 for the half-tribe of Manasseh in Gilead, Iddo the son of Zechariah; for Benjamin, Jaasiel the son of Abner; 22 for Dan, Azarel the son of Jeroham. These were the leaders of the tribes of Israel. 23 David did not count those below twenty years of age, for the LORD had promised to make Israel as many as the stars of heaven. 24 Joab the son of Zeruiah began to count, but did not finish. Yet wrath came upon Israel for this, and the number was not entered in the chronicles of King David. 25 Over the king's treasuries was Azmaveth the son of Adiel; and over the treasuries in the country, in the cities, in the villages, and in the towers, was Jonathan the son of Uzziah; 26 and over those who did the work of the field for tilling the soil was Ezri the son of Chelub; 27 and over the vineyards was Shimei the Ramathite; and over the produce of the vineyards for the wine cellars was Zabdi the Shiphmite. 28 Over the olive and sycamore trees in the Shephelah was Baal-hanan the Gederite; and over the stores of oil was Joash. 29 Over the herds that pastured in Sharon was Shitrai the Sharonite; over the herds in the valleys was Shaphat the son of Adlai. 30 Over the camels was Obil the Ishmaelite; and over the donkeys was Jehdeiah the Meronothite. Over the flocks was Jaziz the Hagrite. 31 All these were stewards of King David's property. 32 Jonathan, David's uncle, was a counselor, being a man of understanding and a scribe. He and Jehiel the son of Hachmoni attended the king's sons. 33 Ahithophel was the king's counselor, and Hushai the Archite was the king's friend. 34 Ahithophel was succeeded by Jehoiada the son of Benaiah, and Abiathar. Joab was commander of the king's army. Footnotes  27:4 Septuagint; Hebrew Ahohite and his division and Mikloth the chief officer  27:6 Septuagint, Vulgate; Hebrew was his division (ESV) Gospels and Epistles: Luke 15 Luke 15 (Listen) The Parable of the Lost Sheep 15 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. 2 And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.” 3 So he told them this parable: 4 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.' 7 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance. The Parable of the Lost Coin 8 “Or what woman, having ten silver coins,1 if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and seek diligently until she finds it? 9 And when she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin that I had lost.' 10 Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” The Parable of the Prodigal Son 11 And he said, “There was a man who had two sons. 12 And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of property that is coming to me.' And he divided his property between them. 13 Not many days later, the younger son gathered all he had and took a journey into a far country, and there he squandered his property in reckless living. 14 And when he had spent everything, a severe famine arose in that country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired himself out to2 one of the citizens of that country, who sent him into his fields to feed pigs. 16 And he was longing to be fed with the pods that the pigs ate, and no one gave him anything. 17 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father's hired servants have more than enough bread, but I perish here with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants.”' 20 And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. 21 And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.'3 22 But the father said to his servants,4 ‘Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet. 23 And bring the fattened calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate. 24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.' And they began to celebrate. 25 “Now his older son was in the field, and as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 And he called one of the servants and asked what these things meant. 27 And he said to him, ‘Your brother has come, and your father has killed the fattened calf, because he has received him back safe and sound.' 28 But he was angry and refused to go in. His father came out and entreated him, 29 but he answered his father, ‘Look, these many years I have served you, and I never disobeyed your command, yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might celebrate with my friends. 30 But when this son of yours came, who has devoured your property with prostitutes, you killed the fattened calf for him!' 31 And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours. 32 It was fitting to celebrate and be glad, for this your brother was dead, and is alive; he was lost, and is found.'” Footnotes  15:8 Greek ten drachmas; a drachma was a Greek coin approximately equal in value to a Roman denarius, worth about a day's wage for a laborer  15:15 Greek joined himself to  15:21 Some manuscripts add treat me as one of your hired servants  15:22 Or bondservants (ESV)

Psalms and Wisdom: Psalm 8 Psalm 8 (Listen) How Majestic Is Your Name To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith.1 A Psalm of David. 8 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.2 Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger. 3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,4 what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? 5 Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings2 and crowned him with glory and honor.6 You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet,7 all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,8 the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas. 9 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! Footnotes  8:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term  8:5 Or than God; Septuagint than the angels (ESV) Pentateuch and History: Genesis 8:20–9:19 Genesis 8:20–9:19 (Listen) God's Covenant with Noah 20 Then Noah built an altar to the LORD and took some of every clean animal and some of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21 And when the LORD smelled the pleasing aroma, the LORD said in his heart, “I will never again curse1 the ground because of man, for the intention of man's heart is evil from his youth. Neither will I ever again strike down every living creature as I have done. 22 While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.” 9 And God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. 2 The fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth and upon every bird of the heavens, upon everything that creeps on the ground and all the fish of the sea. Into your hand they are delivered. 3 Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything. 4 But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood. 5 And for your lifeblood I will require a reckoning: from every beast I will require it and from man. From his fellow man I will require a reckoning for the life of man. 6 “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image. 7 And you,2 be fruitful and multiply, increase greatly on the earth and multiply in it.” 8 Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him, 9 “Behold, I establish my covenant with you and your offspring after you, 10 and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the livestock, and every beast of the earth with you, as many as came out of the ark; it is for every beast of the earth. 11 I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.” 12 And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: 13 I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. And the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” 17 God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.” Noah's Descendants 18 The sons of Noah who went forth from the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. (Ham was the father of Canaan.) 19 These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the people of the whole earth were dispersed.3 Footnotes  8:21 Or dishonor  9:7 In Hebrew you is plural  9:19 Or from these the whole earth was populated (ESV) Chronicles and Prophets: 1 Chronicles 9 1 Chronicles 9 (Listen) A Genealogy of the Returned Exiles 9 So all Israel was recorded in genealogies, and these are written in the Book of the Kings of Israel. And Judah was taken into exile in Babylon because of their breach of faith. 2 Now the first to dwell again in their possessions in their cities were Israel, the priests, the Levites, and the temple servants. 3 And some of the people of Judah, Benjamin, Ephraim, and Manasseh lived in Jerusalem: 4 Uthai the son of Ammihud, son of Omri, son of Imri, son of Bani, from the sons of Perez the son of Judah. 5 And of the Shilonites: Asaiah the firstborn, and his sons. 6 Of the sons of Zerah: Jeuel and their kinsmen, 690. 7 Of the Benjaminites: Sallu the son of Meshullam, son of Hodaviah, son of Hassenuah, 8 Ibneiah the son of Jeroham, Elah the son of Uzzi, son of Michri, and Meshullam the son of Shephatiah, son of Reuel, son of Ibnijah; 9 and their kinsmen according to their generations, 956. All these were heads of fathers' houses according to their fathers' houses. 10 Of the priests: Jedaiah, Jehoiarib, Jachin, 11 and Azariah the son of Hilkiah, son of Meshullam, son of Zadok, son of Meraioth, son of Ahitub, the chief officer of the house of God; 12 and Adaiah the son of Jeroham, son of Pashhur, son of Malchijah, and Maasai the son of Adiel, son of Jahzerah, son of Meshullam, son of Meshillemith, son of Immer; 13 besides their kinsmen, heads of their fathers' houses, 1,760, mighty men for the work of the service of the house of God. 14 Of the Levites: Shemaiah the son of Hasshub, son of Azrikam, son of Hashabiah, of the sons of Merari; 15 and Bakbakkar, Heresh, Galal and Mattaniah the son of Mica, son of Zichri, son of Asaph; 16 and Obadiah the son of Shemaiah, son of Galal, son of Jeduthun, and Berechiah the son of Asa, son of Elkanah, who lived in the villages of the Netophathites. 17 The gatekeepers were Shallum, Akkub, Talmon, Ahiman, and their kinsmen (Shallum was the chief); 18 until then they were in the king's gate on the east side as the gatekeepers of the camps of the Levites. 19 Shallum the son of Kore, son of Ebiasaph, son of Korah, and his kinsmen of his fathers' house, the Korahites, were in charge of the work of the service, keepers of the thresholds of the tent, as their fathers had been in charge of the camp of the LORD, keepers of the entrance. 20 And Phinehas the son of Eleazar was the chief officer over them in time past; the LORD was with him. 21 Zechariah the son of Meshelemiah was gatekeeper at the entrance of the tent of meeting. 22 All these, who were chosen as gatekeepers at the thresholds, were 212. They were enrolled by genealogies in their villages. David and Samuel the seer established them in their office of trust. 23 So they and their sons were in charge of the gates of the house of the LORD, that is, the house of the tent, as guards. 24 The gatekeepers were on the four sides, east, west, north, and south. 25 And their kinsmen who were in their villages were obligated to come in every seven days, in turn, to be with these, 26 for the four chief gatekeepers, who were Levites, were entrusted to be over the chambers and the treasures of the house of God. 27 And they lodged around the house of God, for on them lay the duty of watching, and they had charge of opening it every morning. 28 Some of them had charge of the utensils of service, for they were required to count them when they were brought in and taken out. 29 Others of them were appointed over the furniture and over all the holy utensils, also over the fine flour, the wine, the oil, the incense, and the spices. 30 Others, of the sons of the priests, prepared the mixing of the spices, 31 and Mattithiah, one of the Levites, the firstborn of Shallum the Korahite, was entrusted with making the flat cakes. 32 Also some of their kinsmen of the Kohathites had charge of the showbread, to prepare it every Sabbath. 33 Now these, the singers, the heads of fathers' houses of the Levites, were in the chambers of the temple free from other service, for they were on duty day and night. 34 These were heads of fathers' houses of the Levites, according to their generations, leaders. These lived in Jerusalem. Saul's Genealogy Repeated 35 In Gibeon lived the father of Gibeon, Jeiel, and the name of his wife was Maacah, 36 and his firstborn son Abdon, then Zur, Kish, Baal, Ner, Nadab, 37 Gedor, Ahio, Zechariah, and Mikloth; 38 and Mikloth was the father of Shimeam; and these also lived opposite their kinsmen in Jerusalem, with their kinsmen. 39 Ner fathered Kish, Kish fathered Saul, Saul fathered Jonathan, Malchi-shua, Abinadab, and Eshbaal. 40 And the son of Jonathan was Merib-baal, and Merib-baal fathered Micah. 41 The sons of Micah: Pithon, Melech, Tahrea, and Ahaz.1 42 And Ahaz fathered Jarah, and Jarah fathered Alemeth, Azmaveth, and Zimri. And Zimri fathered Moza. 43 Moza fathered Binea, and Rephaiah was his son, Eleasah his son, Azel his son. 44 Azel had six sons and these are their names: Azrikam, Bocheru, Ishmael, Sheariah, Obadiah, and Hanan; these were the sons of Azel. Footnotes  9:41 Compare 8:35; Hebrew lacks and Ahaz (ESV) Gospels and Epistles: Luke 5–6:16 Luke 5–6:16 (Listen) Jesus Calls the First Disciples 5 On one occasion, while the crowd was pressing in on him to hear the word of God, he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret, 2 and he saw two boats by the lake, but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. 3 Getting into one of the boats, which was Simon's, he asked him to put out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the people from the boat. 4 And when he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” 5 And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.” 6 And when they had done this, they enclosed a large number of fish, and their nets were breaking. 7 They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. 8 But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.” 9 For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish that they had taken, 10 and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.”1 11 And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him. Jesus Cleanses a Leper 12 While he was in one of the cities, there came a man full of leprosy.2 And when he saw Jesus, he fell on his face and begged him, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.” 13 And Jesus3 stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I will; be clean.” And immediately the leprosy left him. 14 And he charged him to tell no one, but “go and show yourself to the priest, and make an offering for your cleansing, as Moses commanded, for a proof to them.” 15 But now even more the report about him went abroad, and great crowds gathered to hear him and to be healed of their infirmities. 16 But he would withdraw to desolate places and pray. Jesus Heals a Paralytic 17 On one of those days, as he was teaching, Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there, who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was with him to heal.4 18 And behold, some men were bringing on a bed a man who was paralyzed, and they were seeking to bring him in and lay him before Jesus, 19 but finding no way to bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and let him down with his bed through the tiles into the midst before Jesus. 20 And when he saw their faith, he said, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.” 21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to question, saying, “Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God alone?” 22 When Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answered them, “Why do you question in your hearts? 23 Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,' or to say, ‘Rise and walk'? 24 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the man who was paralyzed—“I say to you, rise, pick up your bed and go home.” 25 And immediately he rose up before them and picked up what he had been lying on and went home, glorifying God. 26 And amazement seized them all, and they glorified God and were filled with awe, saying, “We have seen extraordinary things today.” Jesus Calls Levi 27 After this he went out and saw a tax collector named Levi, sitting at the tax booth. And he said to him, “Follow me.” 28 And leaving everything, he rose and followed him. 29 And Levi made him a great feast in his house, and there was a large company of tax collectors and others reclining at table with them. 30 And the Pharisees and their scribes grumbled at his disciples, saying, “Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” 31 And Jesus answered them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 32 I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.” A Question About Fasting 33 And they said to him, “The disciples of John fast often and offer prayers, and so do the disciples of the Pharisees, but yours eat and drink.” 34 And Jesus said to them, “Can you make wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? 35 The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in those days.” 36 He also told them a parable: “No one tears a piece from a new garment and puts it on an old garment. If he does, he will tear the new, and the piece from the new will not match the old. 37 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the new wine will burst the skins and it will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. 38 But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins. 39 And no one after drinking old wine desires new, for he says, ‘The old is good.'”5 Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath 6 On a Sabbath,6 while he was going through the grainfields, his disciples plucked and ate some heads of grain, rubbing them in their hands. 2 But some of the Pharisees said, “Why are you doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath?” 3 And Jesus answered them, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him: 4 how he entered the house of God and took and ate the bread of the Presence, which is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to those with him?” 5 And he said to them, “The Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath.” A Man with a Withered Hand 6 On another Sabbath, he entered the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was withered. 7 And the scribes and the Pharisees watched him, to see whether he would heal on the Sabbath, so that they might find a reason to accuse him. 8 But he knew their thoughts, and he said to the man with the withered hand, “Come and stand here.” And he rose and stood there. 9 And Jesus said to them, “I ask you, is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save life or to destroy it?” 10 And after looking around at them all he said to him, “Stretch out your hand.” And he did so, and his hand was restored. 11 But they were filled with fury and discussed with one another what they might do to Jesus. The Twelve Apostles 12 In these days he went out to the mountain to pray, and all night he continued in prayer to God. 13 And when day came, he called his disciples and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles: 14 Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, 15 and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, 16 and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

Psalms and Wisdom: Psalm 6 Psalm 6 (Listen) O Lord, Deliver My Life To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith.1 A Psalm of David. 6 O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger, nor discipline me in your wrath.2 Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; heal me, O LORD, for my bones are troubled.3 My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O LORD—how long? 4 Turn, O LORD, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love.5 For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise? 6 I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping.7 My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes. 8 Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.9 The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD accepts my prayer.10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment. Footnotes  6:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term (ESV) Pentateuch and History: Genesis 7 Genesis 7 (Listen) 7 Then the LORD said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation. 2 Take with you seven pairs of all clean animals,1 the male and his mate, and a pair of the animals that are not clean, the male and his mate, 3 and seven pairs2 of the birds of the heavens also, male and female, to keep their offspring alive on the face of all the earth. 4 For in seven days I will send rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and every living thing3 that I have made I will blot out from the face of the ground.” 5 And Noah did all that the LORD had commanded him. 6 Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters came upon the earth. 7 And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him went into the ark to escape the waters of the flood. 8 Of clean animals, and of animals that are not clean, and of birds, and of everything that creeps on the ground, 9 two and two, male and female, went into the ark with Noah, as God had commanded Noah. 10 And after seven days the waters of the flood came upon the earth. 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened. 12 And rain fell upon the earth forty days and forty nights. 13 On the very same day Noah and his sons, Shem and Ham and Japheth, and Noah's wife and the three wives of his sons with them entered the ark, 14 they and every beast, according to its kind, and all the livestock according to their kinds, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, according to its kind, and every bird, according to its kind, every winged creature. 15 They went into the ark with Noah, two and two of all flesh in which there was the breath of life. 16 And those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him. And the LORD shut him in. 17 The flood continued forty days on the earth. The waters increased and bore up the ark, and it rose high above the earth. 18 The waters prevailed and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the face of the waters. 19 And the waters prevailed so mightily on the earth that all the high mountains under the whole heaven were covered. 20 The waters prevailed above the mountains, covering them fifteen cubits4 deep. 21 And all flesh died that moved on the earth, birds, livestock, beasts, all swarming creatures that swarm on the earth, and all mankind. 22 Everything on the dry land in whose nostrils was the breath of life died. 23 He blotted out every living thing that was on the face of the ground, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens. They were blotted out from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those who were with him in the ark. 24 And the waters prevailed on the earth 150 days.

And when they were ended, he was hungry. 3 The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.” 4 And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone.'” 5 And the devil took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time, 6 and said to him, “To you I will give all this authority and their glory, for it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I will. 7 If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours.” 8 And Jesus answered him, “It is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.'” 9 And he took him to Jerusalem and set him on the pinnacle of the temple and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here, 10 for it is written, “‘He will command his angels concerning you, to guard you,' 11 and “‘On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.'” 12 And Jesus answered him, “It is said, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.'” 13 And when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from him until an opportune time.

So all Israel were reckoned by genealogies; and, behold, they were written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah, who were carried away to Babylon for their transgression.2 Now the first inhabitants that dwelt in their possessions in their cities were, the Israelites, the priests, Levites, and the Nethinims.3 And in Jerusalem dwelt of the children of Judah, and of the children of Benjamin, and of the children of Ephraim, and Manasseh;4 Uthai the son of Ammihud, the son of Omri, the son of Imri, the son of Bani, of the children of Pharez the son of Judah.5 And of the Shilonites; Asaiah the firstborn, and his sons.6 And of the sons of Zerah; Jeuel, and their brethren, six hundred and ninety.7 And of the sons of Benjamin; Sallu the son of Meshullam, the son of Hodaviah, the son of Hasenuah,8 And Ibneiah the son of Jeroham, and Elah the son of Uzzi, the son of Michri, and Meshullam the son of Shephathiah, the son of Reuel, the son of Ibnijah;9 And their brethren, according to their generations, nine hundred and fifty and six. All these men were chief of the fathers in the house of their fathers.10 And of the priests; Jedaiah, and Jehoiarib, and Jachin,11 And Azariah the son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub, the ruler of the house of God;12 And Adaiah the son of Jeroham, the son of Pashur, the son of Malchijah, and Maasiai the son of Adiel, the son of Jahzerah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Meshillemith, the son of Immer;13 And their brethren, heads of the house of their fathers, a thousand and seven hundred and threescore; very able men for the work of the service of the house of God.14 And of the Levites; Shemaiah the son of Hasshub, the son of Azrikam, the son of Hashabiah, of the sons of Merari;15 And Bakbakkar, Heresh, and Galal, and Mattaniah the son of Micah, the son of Zichri, the son of Asaph;16 And Obadiah the son of Shemaiah, the son of Galal, the son of Jeduthun, and Berechiah the son of Asa, the son of Elkanah, that dwelt in the villages of the Netophathites.17 And the porters were, Shallum, and Akkub, and Talmon, and Ahiman, and their brethren: Shallum was the chief;18 Who hitherto waited in the king's gate eastward: they were porters in the companies of the children of Levi.19 And Shallum the son of Kore, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah, and his brethren, of the house of his father, the Korahites, were over the work of the service, keepers of the gates of the tabernacle: and their fathers, being over the host of the Lord, were keepers of the entry.20 And Phinehas the son of Eleazar was the ruler over them in time past, and the Lord was with him.21 And Zechariah the son of Meshelemiah was porter of the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.22 All these which were chosen to be porters in the gates were two hundred and twelve. These were reckoned by their genealogy in their villages, whom David and Samuel the seer did ordain in their set office.23 So they and their children had the oversight of the gates of the house of the Lord, namely, the house of the tabernacle, by wards.24 In four quarters were the porters, toward the east, west, north, and south.25 And their brethren, which were in their villages, were to come after seven days from time to time with them.26 For these Levites, the four chief porters, were in their set office, and were over the chambers and treasuries of the house of God.27 And they lodged round about the house of God, because the charge was upon them, and the opening thereof every morning pertained to them.28 And certain of them had the charge of the ministering vessels, that they should bring them in and out by tale.29 Some of them also were appointed to oversee the vessels, and all the instruments of the sanctuary, and the fine flour, and the wine, and the oil, and the frankincense, and the spices.30 And some of the sons of the priests made the ointment of the spices.31 And Mattithiah, one of the Levites, who was the firstborn of Shallum the Korahite, had the set office over the things that were made in the pans.32 And other of their brethren, of the sons of the Kohathites, were over the shewbread, to prepare it every sabbath.33 And these are the singers, chief of the fathers of the Levites, who remaining in the chambers were free: for they were employed in that work day and night.34 These chief fathers of the Levites were chief throughout their generations; these dwelt at Jerusalem.35 And in Gibeon dwelt the father of Gibeon, Jehiel, whose wife's name was Maachah:36 And his firstborn son Abdon, then Zur, and Kish, and Baal, and Ner, and Nadab.37 And Gedor, and Ahio, and Zechariah, and Mikloth.38 And Mikloth begat Shimeam. And they also dwelt with their brethren at Jerusalem, over against their brethren.39 And Ner begat Kish; and Kish begat Saul; and Saul begat Jonathan, and Malchishua, and Abinadab, and Eshbaal.40 And the son of Jonathan was Meribbaal: and Meribbaal begat Micah.41 And the sons of Micah were, Pithon, and Melech, and Tahrea, and Ahaz.42 And Ahaz begat Jarah; and Jarah begat Alemeth, and Azmaveth, and Zimri; and Zimri begat Moza;43 And Moza begat Binea; and Rephaiah his son, Eleasah his son, Azel his son.44 And Azel had six sons, whose names are these, Azrikam, Bocheru, and Ishmael, and Sheariah, and Obadiah, and Hanan: these were the sons of Azel.
Now the sons of Issachar were, Tola, and Puah, Jashub, and Shimrom, four.2 And the sons of Tola; Uzzi, and Rephaiah, and Jeriel, and Jahmai, and Jibsam, and Shemuel, heads of their father's house, to wit, of Tola: they were valiant men of might in their generations; whose number was in the days of David two and twenty thousand and six hundred.3 And the sons of Uzzi; Izrahiah: and the sons of Izrahiah; Michael, and Obadiah, and Joel, Ishiah, five: all of them chief men.4 And with them, by their generations, after the house of their fathers, were bands of soldiers for war, six and thirty thousand men: for they had many wives and sons.5 And their brethren among all the families of Issachar were valiant men of might, reckoned in all by their genealogies fourscore and seven thousand.6 The sons of Benjamin; Bela, and Becher, and Jediael, three.7 And the sons of Bela; Ezbon, and Uzzi, and Uzziel, and Jerimoth, and Iri, five; heads of the house of their fathers, mighty men of valour; and were reckoned by their genealogies twenty and two thousand and thirty and four.8 And the sons of Becher; Zemira, and Joash, and Eliezer, and Elioenai, and Omri, and Jerimoth, and Abiah, and Anathoth, and Alameth. All these are the sons of Becher.9 And the number of them, after their genealogy by their generations, heads of the house of their fathers, mighty men of valour, was twenty thousand and two hundred.10 The sons also of Jediael; Bilhan: and the sons of Bilhan; Jeush, and Benjamin, and Ehud, and Chenaanah, and Zethan, and Tharshish, and Ahishahar.11 All these the sons of Jediael, by the heads of their fathers, mighty men of valour, were seventeen thousand and two hundred soldiers, fit to go out for war and battle.12 Shuppim also, and Huppim, the children of Ir, and Hushim, the sons of Aher.13 The sons of Naphtali; Jahziel, and Guni, and Jezer, and Shallum, the sons of Bilhah.14 The sons of Manasseh; Ashriel, whom she bare: (but his concubine the Aramitess bare Machir the father of Gilead:15 And Machir took to wife the sister of Huppim and Shuppim, whose sister's name was Maachah;) and the name of the second was Zelophehad: and Zelophehad had daughters.16 And Maachah the wife of Machir bare a son, and she called his name Peresh; and the name of his brother was Sheresh; and his sons were Ulam and Rakem.17 And the sons of Ulam; Bedan. These were the sons of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh.18 And his sister Hammoleketh bare Ishod, and Abiezer, and Mahalah.19 And the sons of Shemidah were, Ahian, and Shechem, and Likhi, and Aniam.20 And the sons of Ephraim; Shuthelah, and Bered his son, and Tahath his son, and Eladah his son, and Tahath his son,21 And Zabad his son, and Shuthelah his son, and Ezer, and Elead, whom the men of Gath that were born in that land slew, because they came down to take away their cattle.22 And Ephraim their father mourned many days, and his brethren came to comfort him.23 And when he went in to his wife, she conceived, and bare a son, and he called his name Beriah, because it went evil with his house.24 (And his daughter was Sherah, who built Bethhoron the nether, and the upper, and Uzzensherah.)25 And Rephah was his son, also Resheph, and Telah his son, and Tahan his son.26 Laadan his son, Ammihud his son, Elishama his son.27 Non his son, Jehoshuah his son.28 And their possessions and habitations were, Bethel and the towns thereof, and eastward Naaran, and westward Gezer, with the towns thereof; Shechem also and the towns thereof, unto Gaza and the towns thereof:29 And by the borders of the children of Manasseh, Bethshean and her towns, Taanach and her towns, Megiddo and her towns, Dor and her towns. In these dwelt the children of Joseph the son of Israel.30 The sons of Asher; Imnah, and Isuah, and Ishuai, and Beriah, and Serah their sister.31 And the sons of Beriah; Heber, and Malchiel, who is the father of Birzavith.32 And Heber begat Japhlet, and Shomer, and Hotham, and Shua their sister.33 And the sons of Japhlet; Pasach, and Bimhal, and Ashvath. These are the children of Japhlet.34 And the sons of Shamer; Ahi, and Rohgah, Jehubbah, and Aram.35 And the sons of his brother Helem; Zophah, and Imna, and Shelesh, and Amal.36 The sons of Zophah; Suah, and Harnepher, and Shual, and Beri, and Imrah,37 Bezer, and Hod, and Shamma, and Shilshah, and Ithran, and Beera.38 And the sons of Jether; Jephunneh, and Pispah, and Ara.39 And the sons of Ulla; Arah, and Haniel, and Rezia.40 All these were the children of Asher, heads of their father's house, choice and mighty men of valour, chief of the princes.

ESV: Through the Bible in a Year
Old Testament: Micah 4–7 Micah 4–7 (Listen) The Mountain of the Lord 4 It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and it shall be lifted up above the hills; and peoples shall flow to it,2 and many nations shall come, and say: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law,1 and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.3 He shall judge between many peoples, and shall decide disputes for strong nations far away; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore;4 but they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid, for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken.5 For all the peoples walk each in the name of its god, but we will walk in the name of the LORD our God forever and ever. The Lord Shall Rescue Zion 6 In that day, declares the LORD, I will assemble the lame and gather those who have been driven away and those whom I have afflicted;7 and the lame I will make the remnant, and those who were cast off, a strong nation; and the LORD will reign over them in Mount Zion from this time forth and forevermore. 8 And you, O tower of the flock, hill of the daughter of Zion, to you shall it come, the former dominion shall come, kingship for the daughter of Jerusalem. 9 Now why do you cry aloud? Is there no king in you? Has your counselor perished, that pain seized you like a woman in labor?10 Writhe and groan,2 O daughter of Zion, like a woman in labor, for now you shall go out from the city and dwell in the open country; you shall go to Babylon. There you shall be rescued; there the LORD will redeem you from the hand of your enemies. 11 Now many nations are assembled against you, saying, “Let her be defiled, and let our eyes gaze upon Zion.”12 But they do not know the thoughts of the LORD; they do not understand his plan, that he has gathered them as sheaves to the threshing floor.13 Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion, for I will make your horn iron, and I will make your hoofs bronze; you shall beat in pieces many peoples; and shall devote3 their gain to the LORD, their wealth to the Lord of the whole earth. The Ruler to Be Born in Bethlehem 5 4 Now muster your troops, O daughter5 of troops; siege is laid against us; with a rod they strike the judge of Israel on the cheek.2 6 But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days.3 Therefore he shall give them up until the time when she who is in labor has given birth; then the rest of his brothers shall return to the people of Israel.4 And he shall stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God. And they shall dwell secure, for now he shall be great to the ends of the earth.5 And he shall be their peace. When the Assyrian comes into our land and treads in our palaces, then we will raise against him seven shepherds and eight princes of men;6 they shall shepherd the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod at its entrances; and he shall deliver us from the Assyrian when he comes into our land and treads within our border. A Remnant Shall Be Delivered 7 Then the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many peoples like dew from the LORD, like showers on the grass, which delay not for a man nor wait for the children of man.8 And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the nations, in the midst of many peoples, like a lion among the beasts of the forest, like a young lion among the flocks of sheep, which, when it goes through, treads down and tears in pieces, and there is none to deliver.9 Your hand shall be lifted up over your adversaries, and all your enemies shall be cut off. 10 And in that day, declares the LORD, I will cut off your horses from among you and will destroy your chariots;11 and I will cut off the cities of your land and throw down all your strongholds;12 and I will cut off sorceries from your hand, and you shall have no more tellers of fortunes;13 and I will cut off your carved images and your pillars from among you, and you shall bow down no more to the work of your hands;14 and I will root out your Asherah images from among you and destroy your cities.15 And in anger and wrath I will execute vengeance on the nations that did not obey. The Indictment of the Lord 6 Hear what the LORD says: Arise, plead your case before the mountains, and let the hills hear your voice.2 Hear, you mountains, the indictment of the LORD, and you enduring foundations of the earth, for the LORD has an indictment against his people, and he will contend with Israel. 3 “O my people, what have I done to you? How have I wearied you? Answer me!4 For I brought you up from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, and I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.5 O my people, remember what Balak king of Moab devised, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him, and what happened from Shittim to Gilgal, that you may know the righteous acts of the LORD.” What Does the Lord Require? 6 “With what shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old?7 Will the LORD be pleased with7 thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?”8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness,8 and to walk humbly with your God? Destruction of the Wicked 9 The voice of the LORD cries to the city— and it is sound wisdom to fear your name: “Hear of the rod and of him who appointed it!910 Can I forget any longer the treasures10 of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and the scant measure that is accursed?11 Shall I acquit the man with wicked scales and with a bag of deceitful weights?12 Your11 rich men are full of violence; your inhabitants speak lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.13 Therefore I strike you with a grievous blow, making you desolate because of your sins.14 You shall eat, but not be satisfied, and there shall be hunger within you; you shall put away, but not preserve, and what you preserve I will give to the sword.15 You shall sow, but not reap; you shall tread olives, but not anoint yourselves with oil; you shall tread grapes, but not drink wine.16 For you have kept the statutes of Omri,12 and all the works of the house of Ahab; and you have walked in their counsels, that I may make you a desolation, and your13 inhabitants a hissing; so you shall bear the scorn of my people.” Wait for the God of Salvation 7 Woe is me! For I have become as when the summer fruit has been gathered, as when the grapes have been gleaned: there is no cluster to eat, no first-ripe fig that my soul desires.2 The godly has perished from the earth, and there is no one upright among mankind; they all lie in wait for blood, and each hunts the other with a net.3 Their hands are on what is evil, to do it well; the prince and the judge ask for a bribe, and the great man utters the evil desire of his soul; thus they weave it together.4 The best of them is like a brier, the most upright of them a thorn hedge. The day of your watchmen, of your punishment, has come; now their confusion is at hand.5 Put no trust in a neighbor; have no confidence in a friend; guard the doors of your mouth from her who lies in your arms;146 for the son treats the father with contempt, the daughter rises up against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house.7 But as for me, I will look to the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me. 8 Rejoice not over me, O my enemy; when I fall, I shall rise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD will be a light to me.9 I will bear the indignation of the LORD because I have sinned against him, until he pleads my cause and executes judgment for me. He will bring me out to the light; I shall look upon his vindication.10 Then my enemy will see, and shame will cover her who said to me, “Where is the LORD your God?” My eyes will look upon her; now she will be trampled down like the mire of the streets. 11 A day for the building of your walls! In that day the boundary shall be far extended.12 In that day they15 will come to you, from Assyria and the cities of Egypt, and from Egypt to the River,16 from sea to sea and from mountain to mountain.13 But the earth will be desolate because of its inhabitants, for the fruit of their deeds. 14 Shepherd your people with your staff, the flock of your inheritance, who dwell alone in a forest in the midst of a garden land;17 let them graze in Bashan and Gilead as in the days of old.15 As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt, I will show them18 marvelous things.16 The nations shall see and be ashamed of all their might; they shall lay their hands on their mouths; their ears shall be deaf;17 they shall lick the dust like a serpent, like the crawling things of the earth; they shall come trembling out of their strongholds; they shall turn in dread to the LORD our God, and they shall be in fear of you. God's Steadfast Love and Compassion 18 Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love.19 He will again have compassion on us; he will tread our iniquities underfoot. You will cast all our19 sins into the depths of the sea.20 You will show faithfulness to Jacob and steadfast love to Abraham, as you have sworn to our fathers from the days of old.
