Proper 29 First Psalm: Psalm 140; Psalm 142 Psalm 140 (Listen) Deliver Me, O Lord, from Evil Men To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. 140   Deliver me, O LORD, from evil men;    preserve me from violent men,2   who plan evil things in their heart    and stir up wars continually.3   They make their tongue sharp as a serpent's,    and under their lips is the venom of asps. Selah 4   Guard me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked;    preserve me from violent men,    who have planned to trip up my feet.5   The arrogant have hidden a trap for me,    and with cords they have spread a net;1    beside the way they have set snares for me. Selah 6   I say to the LORD, You are my God;    give ear to the voice of my pleas for mercy, O LORD!7   O LORD, my Lord, the strength of my salvation,    you have covered my head in the day of battle.8   Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked;    do not further their2 evil plot, or they will be exalted! Selah 9   As for the head of those who surround me,    let the mischief of their lips overwhelm them!10   Let burning coals fall upon them!    Let them be cast into fire,    into miry pits, no more to rise!11   Let not the slanderer be established in the land;    let evil hunt down the violent man speedily! 12   I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted,    and will execute justice for the needy.13   Surely the righteous shall give thanks to your name;    the upright shall dwell in your presence. Footnotes [1] 140:5 Or they have spread cords as a net [2] 140:8 Hebrew his (ESV) Psalm 142 (Listen) You Are My Refuge A Maskil1 of David, when he was in the cave. A Prayer. 142   With my voice I cry out to the LORD;    with my voice I plead for mercy to the LORD.2   I pour out my complaint before him;    I tell my trouble before him. 3   When my spirit faints within me,    you know my way!  In the path where I walk    they have hidden a trap for me.4   Look to the right and see:    there is none who takes notice of me;  no refuge remains to me;    no one cares for my soul. 5   I cry to you, O LORD;    I say, “You are my refuge,    my portion in the land of the living.”6   Attend to my cry,    for I am brought very low!  Deliver me from my persecutors,    for they are too strong for me!7   Bring me out of prison,    that I may give thanks to your name!  The righteous will surround me,    for you will deal bountifully with me. Footnotes [1] 142:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term (ESV) Second Psalm: Psalm 141; Psalm 143 Psalm 141 (Listen) Give Ear to My Voice A Psalm of David. 141   O LORD, I call upon you; hasten to me!    Give ear to my voice when I call to you!2   Let my prayer be counted as incense before you,    and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice! 3   Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth;    keep watch over the door of my lips!4   Do not let my heart incline to any evil,    to busy myself with wicked deeds  in company with men who work iniquity,    and let me not eat of their delicacies! 5   Let a righteous man strike me—it is a kindness;    let him rebuke me—it is oil for my head;    let my head not refuse it.  Yet my prayer is continually against their evil deeds.6   When their judges are thrown over the cliff,1    then they shall hear my words, for they are pleasant.7   As when one plows and breaks up the earth,    so shall our bones be scattered at the mouth of Sheol.2 8   But my eyes are toward you, O GOD, my Lord;    in you I seek refuge; leave me not defenseless!39   Keep me from the trap that they have laid for me    and from the snares of evildoers!10   Let the wicked fall into their own nets,    while I pass by safely. Footnotes [1] 141:6 Or When their judges fall into the hands of the Rock [2] 141:7 The meaning of the Hebrew in verses 6, 7 is uncertain [3] 141:8 Hebrew refuge; do not pour out my life! (ESV) Psalm 143 (Listen) My Soul Thirsts for You A Psalm of David. 143   Hear my prayer, O LORD;    give ear to my pleas for mercy!    In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness!2   Enter not into judgment with your servant,    for no one living is righteous before you. 3   For the enemy has pursued my soul;    he has crushed my life to the ground;    he has made me sit in darkness like those long dead.4   Therefore my spirit faints within me;    my heart within me is appalled. 5   I remember the days of old;    I meditate on all that you have done;    I ponder the work of your hands.6   I stretch out my hands to you;    my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Selah 7   Answer me quickly, O LORD!    My spirit fails!  Hide not your face from me,    lest I be like those who go down to the pit.8   Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,    for in you I trust.  Make me know the way I should go,    for to you I lift up my soul. 9   Deliver me from my enemies, O LORD!    I have fled to you for refuge.110   Teach me to do your will,    for you are my God!  Let your good Spirit lead me    on level ground! 11   For your name's sake, O LORD, preserve my life!    In your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble!12   And in your steadfast love you will cut off my enemies,    and you will destroy all the adversaries of my soul,    for I am your servant. Footnotes [1] 143:9 One Hebrew manuscript, Septuagint; most Hebrew manuscripts To you I have covered (ESV) Old Testament: Isaiah 24:14–23 Isaiah 24:14–23 (Listen) 14   They lift up their voices, they sing for joy;    over the majesty of the LORD they shout from the west.115   Therefore in the east2 give glory to the LORD;    in the coastlands of the sea, give glory to the name of the LORD, the God of Israel.16   From the ends of the earth we hear songs of praise,    of glory to the Righteous One.  But I say, “I waste away,    I waste away. Woe is me!  For the traitors have betrayed,    with betrayal the traitors have betrayed.” 17   Terror and the pit and the snare3    are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth!18   He who flees at the sound of the terror    shall fall into the pit,  and he who climbs out of the pit    shall be caught in the snare.  For the windows of heaven are opened,    and the foundations of the earth tremble.19   The earth is utterly broken,    the earth is split apart,    the earth is violently shaken.20   The earth staggers like a drunken man;    it sways like a hut;  its transgression lies heavy upon it,    and it falls, and will not rise again. 21   On that day the LORD will punish    the host of heaven, in heaven,    and the kings of the earth, on the earth.22   They will be gathered together    as prisoners in a pit;  they will be shut up in a prison,    and after many days they will be punished.23   Then the moon will be confounded    and the sun ashamed,  for the LORD of hosts reigns    on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem,  and his glory will be before his elders. Footnotes [1] 24:14 Hebrew from the sea [2] 24:15 Hebrew in the realm of light, or with the fires [3] 24:17 The Hebrew words for terror, pit, and snare sound alike (ESV) New Testament: 1 Peter 3:13–4:6 1 Peter 3:13–4:6 (Listen) 13 Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good? 14 But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, 15 but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, 16 having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame. 17 For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God's will, than for doing evil. 18 For Christ also suffered1 once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit, 19 in which2 he went and proclaimed3 to the spirits in prison, 20 because4 they formerly did not obey, when God's patience waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through water. 21 Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 22 who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers having been subjected to him. Stewards of God's Grace 4 Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh,5 arm yourselves with the same way of thinking, for whoever has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, 2 so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but for the will of God. 3 For the time that is past suffices for doing what the Gentiles want to do, living in sensuality, passions, drunkenness, orgies, drinking parties, and lawless idolatry. 4 With respect to this they are surprised when you do not join them in the same flood of debauchery, and they malign you; 5 but they will give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. 6 For this is why the gospel was preached even to those who are dead, that though judged in the flesh the way people are, they might live in the spirit the way God does. Footnotes [1] 3:18 Some manuscripts died [2] 3:19 Or the Spirit, in whom [3] 3:19 Or preached [4] 3:20 Or when [5] 4:1 Some manuscripts add for us; some for you (ESV) Gospel: Matthew 20:17–28 Matthew 20:17–28 (Listen) Jesus Foretells His Death a Third Time 17 And as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside, and on the way he said to them, 18 “See, we are going up to Jerusalem. And the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death 19 and deliver him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified, and he will be raised on the third day.” A Mother's Request 20 Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee came up to him with her sons, and kneeling before him she asked him for something. 21 And he said to her, “What do you want?” She said to him, “Say that these two sons of mine are to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your kingdom.” 22 Jesus answered, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am to drink?” They said to him, “We are able.” 23 He said to them, “You will drink my cup, but to sit at my right hand and at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father.” 24 And when the ten heard it, they were indignant at the two brothers. 25 But Jesus called them to him and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 26 It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant,1 27 and whoever would be first among you must be your slave,2 28 even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Footnotes [1] 20:26 Greek diakonos [2] 20:27 Or bondservant, or servant (for the contextual rendering of the Greek word doulos, see Preface) (ESV)

Psalms and Wisdom: Psalm 116 Psalm 116 (Listen) I Love the Lord 116   I love the LORD, because he has heard    my voice and my pleas for mercy.2   Because he inclined his ear to me,    therefore I will call on him as long as I live.3   The snares of death encompassed me;    the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me;    I suffered distress and anguish.4   Then I called on the name of the LORD:    “O LORD, I pray, deliver my soul!” 5   Gracious is the LORD, and righteous;    our God is merciful.6   The LORD preserves the simple;    when I was brought low, he saved me.7   Return, O my soul, to your rest;    for the LORD has dealt bountifully with you. 8   For you have delivered my soul from death,    my eyes from tears,    my feet from stumbling;9   I will walk before the LORD    in the land of the living. 10   I believed, even when1 I spoke:    “I am greatly afflicted”;11   I said in my alarm,    “All mankind are liars.” 12   What shall I render to the LORD    for all his benefits to me?13   I will lift up the cup of salvation    and call on the name of the LORD,14   I will pay my vows to the LORD    in the presence of all his people. 15   Precious in the sight of the LORD    is the death of his saints.16   O LORD, I am your servant;    I am your servant, the son of your maidservant.    You have loosed my bonds.17   I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving    and call on the name of the LORD.18   I will pay my vows to the LORD    in the presence of all his people,19   in the courts of the house of the LORD,    in your midst, O Jerusalem.  Praise the LORD! Footnotes [1] 116:10 Or believed, indeed; Septuagint believed, therefore (ESV) Pentateuch and History: 2 Kings 23:31–24:17 2 Kings 23:31–24:17 (Listen) Jehoahaz's Reign and Captivity 31 Jehoahaz was twenty-three years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Hamutal the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah. 32 And he did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his fathers had done. 33 And Pharaoh Neco put him in bonds at Riblah in the land of Hamath, that he might not reign in Jerusalem, and laid on the land a tribute of a hundred talents1 of silver and a talent of gold. 34 And Pharaoh Neco made Eliakim the son of Josiah king in the place of Josiah his father, and changed his name to Jehoiakim. But he took Jehoahaz away, and he came to Egypt and died there. 35 And Jehoiakim gave the silver and the gold to Pharaoh, but he taxed the land to give the money according to the command of Pharaoh. He exacted the silver and the gold of the people of the land, from everyone according to his assessment, to give it to Pharaoh Neco. Jehoiakim Reigns in Judah 36 Jehoiakim was twenty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Zebidah the daughter of Pedaiah of Rumah. 37 And he did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his fathers had done. 24 In his days, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim became his servant for three years. Then he turned and rebelled against him. 2 And the LORD sent against him bands of the Chaldeans and bands of the Syrians and bands of the Moabites and bands of the Ammonites, and sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the LORD that he spoke by his servants the prophets. 3 Surely this came upon Judah at the command of the LORD, to remove them out of his sight, for the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he had done, 4 and also for the innocent blood that he had shed. For he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, and the LORD would not pardon. 5 Now the rest of the deeds of Jehoiakim and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 6 So Jehoiakim slept with his fathers, and Jehoiachin his son reigned in his place. 7 And the king of Egypt did not come again out of his land, for the king of Babylon had taken all that belonged to the king of Egypt from the Brook of Egypt to the river Euphrates. Jehoiachin Reigns in Judah 8 Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Nehushta the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem. 9 And he did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father had done. Jerusalem Captured 10 At that time the servants of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up to Jerusalem, and the city was besieged. 11 And Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to the city while his servants were besieging it, 12 and Jehoiachin the king of Judah gave himself up to the king of Babylon, himself and his mother and his servants and his officials and his palace officials. The king of Babylon took him prisoner in the eighth year of his reign 13 and carried off all the treasures of the house of the LORD and the treasures of the king's house, and cut in pieces all the vessels of gold in the temple of the LORD, which Solomon king of Israel had made, as the LORD had foretold. 14 He carried away all Jerusalem and all the officials and all the mighty men of valor, 10,000 captives, and all the craftsmen and the smiths. None remained, except the poorest people of the land. 15 And he carried away Jehoiachin to Babylon. The king's mother, the king's wives, his officials, and the chief men of the land he took into captivity from Jerusalem to Babylon. 16 And the king of Babylon brought captive to Babylon all the men of valor, 7,000, and the craftsmen and the metal workers, 1,000, all of them strong and fit for war. 17 And the king of Babylon made Mattaniah, Jehoiachin's uncle, king in his place, and changed his name to Zedekiah. Footnotes [1] 23:33 A talent was about 75 pounds or 34 kilograms (ESV) Chronicles and Prophets: Isaiah 17–18 Isaiah 17–18 (Listen) An Oracle Concerning Damascus 17 An oracle concerning Damascus.   Behold, Damascus will cease to be a city    and will become a heap of ruins.2   The cities of Aroer are deserted;    they will be for flocks,    which will lie down, and none will make them afraid.3   The fortress will disappear from Ephraim,    and the kingdom from Damascus;  and the remnant of Syria will be    like the glory of the children of Israel,      declares the LORD of hosts. 4   And in that day the glory of Jacob will be brought low,    and the fat of his flesh will grow lean.5   And it shall be as when the reaper gathers standing grain    and his arm harvests the ears,  and as when one gleans the ears of grain    in the Valley of Rephaim.6   Gleanings will be left in it,    as when an olive tree is beaten—  two or three berries    in the top of the highest bough,  four or five    on the branches of a fruit tree,      declares the LORD God of Israel. 7 In that day man will look to his Maker, and his eyes will look on the Holy One of Israel. 8 He will not look to the altars, the work of his hands, and he will not look on what his own fingers have made, either the Asherim or the altars of incense. 9 In that day their strong cities will be like the deserted places of the wooded heights and the hilltops, which they deserted because of the children of Israel, and there will be desolation. 10   For you have forgotten the God of your salvation    and have not remembered the Rock of your refuge;  therefore, though you plant pleasant plants    and sow the vine-branch of a stranger,11   though you make them grow1 on the day that you plant them,    and make them blossom in the morning that you sow,  yet the harvest will flee away2    in a day of grief and incurable pain. 12   Ah, the thunder of many peoples;    they thunder like the thundering of the sea!  Ah, the roar of nations;    they roar like the roaring of mighty waters!13   The nations roar like the roaring of many waters,    but he will rebuke them, and they will flee far away,  chased like chaff on the mountains before the wind    and whirling dust before the storm.14   At evening time, behold, terror!    Before morning, they are no more!  This is the portion of those who loot us,    and the lot of those who plunder us. An Oracle Concerning Cush 18   Ah, land of whirring wings    that is beyond the rivers of Cush,32   which sends ambassadors by the sea,    in vessels of papyrus on the waters!  Go, you swift messengers,    to a nation tall and smooth,  to a people feared near and far,    a nation mighty and conquering,    whose land the rivers divide. 3   All you inhabitants of the world,    you who dwell on the earth,  when a signal is raised on the mountains, look!    When a trumpet is blown, hear!4   For thus the LORD said to me:  “I will quietly look from my dwelling    like clear heat in sunshine,    like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.”5   For before the harvest, when the blossom is over,    and the flower becomes a ripening grape,  he cuts off the shoots with pruning hooks,    and the spreading branches he lops off and clears away.6   They shall all of them be left    to the birds of prey of the mountains    and to the beasts of the earth.  And the birds of prey will summer on them,    and all the beasts of the earth will winter on them. 7 At that time tribute will be brought to the LORD of hosts   from a people tall and smooth,    from a people feared near and far,  a nation mighty and conquering,    whose land the rivers divide, to Mount Zion, the place of the name of the LORD of hosts. Footnotes [1] 17:11 Or though you carefully fence them [2] 17:11 Or will be a heap [3] 18:1 Probably Nubia (ESV) Gospels and Epistles: John 16:16–33 John 16:16–33 (Listen) Your Sorrow Will Turn into Joy 16 “A little while, and you will see me no longer; and again a little while, and you will see me.” 17 So some of his disciples said to one another, “What is this that he says to us, ‘A little while, and you will not see me, and again a little while, and you will see me'; and, ‘because I am going to the Father'?” 18 So they were saying, “What does he mean by ‘a little while'? We do not know what he is talking about.” 19 Jesus knew that they wanted to ask him, so he said to them, “Is this what you are asking yourselves, what I meant by saying, ‘A little while and you will not see me, and again a little while and you will see me'? 20 Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy. 21 When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. 22 So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you. 23 In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you. 24 Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. I Have Overcome the World 25 “I have said these things to you in figures of speech. The hour is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figures of speech but will tell you plainly about the Father. 26 In that day you will ask in my name, and I do not say to you that I will ask the Father on your behalf; 27 for the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God.1 28 I came from the Father and have come into the world, and now I am leaving the world and going to the Father.” 29 His disciples said, “Ah, now you are speaking plainly and not using figurative speech! 30 Now we know that you know all things and do not need anyone to question you; this is why we believe that you came from God.” 31 Jesus answered them, “Do you now believe? 32 Behold, the hour is coming, indeed it has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home, and will leave me alone. Yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me. 33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” Footnotes [1] 16:27 Some manuscripts from the Father (ESV)

Proper 29 First Psalm: Psalms 131–133 Psalms 131–133 (Listen) I Have Calmed and Quieted My Soul A Song of Ascents. Of David. 131   O LORD, my heart is not lifted up;    my eyes are not raised too high;  I do not occupy myself with things    too great and too marvelous for me.2   But I have calmed and quieted my soul,    like a weaned child with its mother;    like a weaned child is my soul within me. 3   O Israel, hope in the LORD    from this time forth and forevermore. The Lord Has Chosen Zion A Song of Ascents. 132   Remember, O LORD, in David's favor,    all the hardships he endured,2   how he swore to the LORD    and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob,3   “I will not enter my house    or get into my bed,4   I will not give sleep to my eyes    or slumber to my eyelids,5   until I find a place for the LORD,    a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob.” 6   Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah;    we found it in the fields of Jaar.7   “Let us go to his dwelling place;    let us worship at his footstool!” 8   Arise, O LORD, and go to your resting place,    you and the ark of your might.9   Let your priests be clothed with righteousness,    and let your saints shout for joy.10   For the sake of your servant David,    do not turn away the face of your anointed one. 11   The LORD swore to David a sure oath    from which he will not turn back:  “One of the sons of your body1    I will set on your throne.12   If your sons keep my covenant    and my testimonies that I shall teach them,  their sons also forever    shall sit on your throne.” 13   For the LORD has chosen Zion;    he has desired it for his dwelling place:14   “This is my resting place forever;    here I will dwell, for I have desired it.15   I will abundantly bless her provisions;    I will satisfy her poor with bread.16   Her priests I will clothe with salvation,    and her saints will shout for joy.17   There I will make a horn to sprout for David;    I have prepared a lamp for my anointed.18   His enemies I will clothe with shame,    but on him his crown will shine.” When Brothers Dwell in Unity A Song of Ascents. Of David. 133   Behold, how good and pleasant it is    when brothers dwell in unity!22   It is like the precious oil on the head,    running down on the beard,  on the beard of Aaron,    running down on the collar of his robes!3   It is like the dew of Hermon,    which falls on the mountains of Zion!  For there the LORD has commanded the blessing,    life forevermore.

Submission to Authority 13 Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution,1 whether it be to the emperor2 as supreme, 14 or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. 15 For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. 16 Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants3 of God. 17 Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor. 18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the unjust. 19 For this is a gracious thing, when, mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly. 20 For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God. 21 For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. 22 He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. 23 When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly. 24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. 25 For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

Going out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour, he did the same. 6 And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing. And he said to them, ‘Why do you stand here idle all day?' 7 They said to him, ‘Because no one has hired us.' He said to them, ‘You go into the vineyard too.' 8 And when evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the laborers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last, up to the first.' 9 And when those hired about the eleventh hour came, each of them received a denarius. 10 Now when those hired first came, they thought they would receive more, but each of them also received a denarius. 11 And on receiving it they grumbled at the master of the house, 12 saying, ‘These last worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the day and the scorching heat.' 13 But he replied to one of them, ‘Friend, I am doing you no wrong. Did you not agree with me for a denarius? 14 Take what belongs to you and go. I choose to give to this last worker as I give to you. 15 Am I not allowed to do what I choose with what belongs to me? Or do you begrudge my generosity?'2 16 So the last will be first, and the first last.” Footnotes [1] 20:2 A denarius was a day's wage for a laborer [2] 20:15 Or is your eye bad because I am good?

“Pursued in Love…Always” A sermon preached by Rev. Ginger E. Gaines-Cirelli with Foundry UMC, November 21, 2021. Reign of Christ and Consecration Sunday, “Prepare the Table with Justice and Joy” series.    Texts: Psalm 23, Revelation 1:4b-8 Over the past seven weeks, we have been guided by the Lord, our shepherd, in Psalm 23. And on this last Sunday of the Christian liturgical year, the last Sunday before Advent, and the day often celebrated as the Reign of Christ or Christ the King, we receive the final verse of the Psalm. The familiar-to-many King James Version reads: “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.” Years ago I learned that the verb translated “follow” is more intense in the original Hebrew: “Surely goodness and mercy shall pursue me…” This is not only an image of these graces passively lurking about or showing up here and there. It's that God's goodness and mercy “will run after me and find me wherever I am!” It strikes me that this is where we began the journey, with the ancient image of God, not as a conquering king, but as a humble, strong, shepherd and the affirmation that God is with us, no matter what.  When I was a teenager, our youth camp worship would use “sing along slides” to guide our singing of a variety of songs, including pop songs. As I prepared for today, meditating on this profound promise of God's loving presence, I was transported back to evening worship in Miller Hall at Canyon Camp and again heard God in the distinctive form of Cyndi Lauper's voice: “If you're lost you can look and you will find me/ Time after time/ If you fall I will catch you, I'll be waiting/ Time after time.”  The Lord, our shepherd pursues us, time after time, wherever we are and no matter how we got there. And, if we are willing to follow, God's goodness guides us into places of beauty, green places of nourishment, still places of peace, places where our soul may be restored; God's goodness guides us on roundabout paths that get us where we need to go, guides us through the valleys of life, makes sure we eat something when we are overwhelmed with fear, danger, or grief, and tenderly loves us, anointing us as valued and called. An important word in verse six is the word translated “mercy,” in Hebrew it is hesed, and usually is translated “lovingkindness.” Rabbi Harold Kushner thinks of it as “unearned love.” Unearned love. God's goodness and unearned love pursue us… What an extraordinary challenge to the culture in which we live.  The common wisdom is that nothing in the world is free, that we have to look a certain way, act a certain way, have certain things to be loved. We have to have this to get that. How many children are taught—implicitly or explicitly—that they are bad, wrong, worthless, unlovable because they don't meet their parent's or teachers' expectations? How much energy flows into trying at every age and stage of life to earn or prove or buy our worth and lovability? How much money gets made by clever people who exploit our insecurities with the lure of “miracle” products and schemes? How often do lives full of potential get coopted and corrupted by gangs—on the streets or in the lunch room or in the marbled and paneled halls of power? The exploitation in all these things depends on human insecurity, on the lie that any one of us is unworthy of love, goodness, and mercy.  And when everything we've tried still leaves us feeling unloved or devalued, we can fall into all sorts of destructive things. Our own insecurity can trigger an impulse to knock others down so we can stand over them, our boots on their necks, to feel bigger or like we have some power. Our own insecurity makes us turn on ourselves in self-loathing and on others with envy and resentment, all out of self-defense for our wounded hearts. Whether or not you figure out how to navigate the worldly macro or micro accounting of earned interest in who you are, it is a struggle to believe that there is any such thing as unearned interest, unearned love. In this world, the relational economy is so often quid pro quo, based on exploitation, or simply governed by run-of-the-mill human brokenness.  But God's economy is altogether different. The Lord, our shepherd—as we've been singing these past weeks—is the king of love not the king of empires or courts or councils or turfs. And the Kin-dom of God doesn't require three forms of legal documentation where all the names exactly match for entry. Because God knows your name and loves you and wants to be close to you! Kin-dom economy with a shepherd in charge is truly different than what we're used to. Jesus didn't test people's theological knowledge or work history before giving them food. Jesus didn't pay the latecomer less than the first to clock in. Jesus didn't play with the devil's shiny advertisements for comfort, prestige, and power. Jesus didn't do violence or execute people, Jesus allowed himself to be publicly executed so that we might finally recognize that buying “peace” or “justice” with another human life yields neither peace nor justice. Jesus didn't raise an army, Jesus raised lives. Jesus embodied God's love and revealed again and again that only love has the power to bring about the healing that will truly set us free. The Lord, our shepherd, pursues us not to blame or test or bully us. God pursues us because God loves us and wants to be with us, to help us, to give us what we need to live lives filled with beauty, meaning, justice, and joy. God's love for you and for me is absolute and it is unearned. God, in love, is always present, always reaching out and waiting for your heart to open wide to receive the overflow.  As the sheep of God's pasture, as citizens of Christ's Kin-dom, we are taught that we love because God first loved us. All our acts of goodness and lovingkindness, all our acts of justice and unearned love, all our acts of generosity and care, all our acts of praise and thanksgiving are in response to God's abundant grace. As we, like a cup, receive and are filled with God's goodness and unearned love, we overflow in acts of gratitude, justice, and joy.  Because God prepares the table for us, we prepare the table for others. And, by God's grace, our offerings will create the best “pot luck” ever! By God's grace overflowing in generosity, we will set a table with love of God and neighbor as the centerpiece, a table that is anti-racist, fully inclusive and affirming, creative, committed, courageous, and full of friendship, support, and laughter; we will set a table big and wide enough so that everyone has a place. On this Consecration Sunday, we're reminded that God gives us everything, holds nothing back, pursues us in love, time after time, so that you will have life and so that we as the people of God called Foundry can prepare the table with justice and joy. What will you return in gratitude? https://foundryumc.org/archive

Morning: Ezekiel 32–33 Ezekiel 32–33 (Listen) A Lament over Pharaoh and Egypt 32 In the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, on the first day of the month, the word of the LORD came to me: 2 “Son of man, raise a lamentation over Pharaoh king of Egypt and say to him:   “You consider yourself a lion of the nations,    but you are like a dragon in the seas;  you burst forth in your rivers,    trouble the waters with your feet,    and foul their rivers.3   Thus says the Lord GOD:    I will throw my net over you    with a host of many peoples,    and they will haul you up in my dragnet.4   And I will cast you on the ground;    on the open field I will fling you,  and will cause all the birds of the heavens to settle on you,    and I will gorge the beasts of the whole earth with you.5   I will strew your flesh upon the mountains    and fill the valleys with your carcass.16   I will drench the land even to the mountains    with your flowing blood,    and the ravines will be full of you.7   When I blot you out, I will cover the heavens    and make their stars dark;  I will cover the sun with a cloud,    and the moon shall not give its light.8   All the bright lights of heaven    will I make dark over you,    and put darkness on your land,      declares the Lord GOD. 9 “I will trouble the hearts of many peoples, when I bring your destruction among the nations, into the countries that you have not known. 10 I will make many peoples appalled at you, and the hair of their kings shall bristle with horror because of you, when I brandish my sword before them. They shall tremble every moment, every one for his own life, on the day of your downfall. 11 “For thus says the Lord GOD: The sword of the king of Babylon shall come upon you. 12 I will cause your multitude to fall by the swords of mighty ones, all of them most ruthless of nations.   “They shall bring to ruin the pride of Egypt,    and all its multitude2 shall perish.13   I will destroy all its beasts    from beside many waters;  and no foot of man shall trouble them anymore,    nor shall the hoofs of beasts trouble them.14   Then I will make their waters clear,    and cause their rivers to run like oil,      declares the Lord GOD.15   When I make the land of Egypt desolate,    and when the land is desolate of all that fills it,  when I strike down all who dwell in it,    then they will know that I am the LORD. 16 This is a lamentation that shall be chanted; the daughters of the nations shall chant it; over Egypt, and over all her multitude, shall they chant it, declares the Lord GOD.” 17 In the twelfth year, in the twelfth month,3 on the fifteenth day of the month, the word of the LORD came to me: 18 “Son of man, wail over the multitude of Egypt, and send them down, her and the daughters of majestic nations, to the world below, to those who have gone down to the pit: 19   ‘Whom do you surpass in beauty?    Go down and be laid to rest with the uncircumcised.' 20 They shall fall amid those who are slain by the sword. Egypt4 is delivered to the sword; drag her away, and all her multitudes. 21 The mighty chiefs shall speak of them, with their helpers, out of the midst of Sheol: ‘They have come down, they lie still, the uncircumcised, slain by the sword.' 22 “Assyria is there, and all her company, its graves all around it, all of them slain, fallen by the sword, 23 whose graves are set in the uttermost parts of the pit; and her company is all around her grave, all of them slain, fallen by the sword, who spread terror in the land of the living. 24 “Elam is there, and all her multitude around her grave; all of them slain, fallen by the sword, who went down uncircumcised into the world below, who spread their terror in the land of the living; and they bear their shame with those who go down to the pit. 25 They have made her a bed among the slain with all her multitude, her graves all around it, all of them uncircumcised, slain by the sword; for terror of them was spread in the land of the living, and they bear their shame with those who go down to the pit; they are placed among the slain. 26 “Meshech-Tubal is there, and all her multitude, her graves all around it, all of them uncircumcised, slain by the sword; for they spread their terror in the land of the living. 27 And they do not lie with the mighty, the fallen from among the uncircumcised, who went down to Sheol with their weapons of war, whose swords were laid under their heads, and whose iniquities are upon their bones; for the terror of the mighty men was in the land of the living. 28 But as for you, you shall be broken and lie among the uncircumcised, with those who are slain by the sword. 29 “Edom is there, her kings and all her princes, who for all their might are laid with those who are killed by the sword; they lie with the uncircumcised, with those who go down to the pit. 30 “The princes of the north are there, all of them, and all the Sidonians, who have gone down in shame with the slain, for all the terror that they caused by their might; they lie uncircumcised with those who are slain by the sword, and bear their shame with those who go down to the pit. 31 “When Pharaoh sees them, he will be comforted for all his multitude, Pharaoh and all his army, slain by the sword, declares the Lord GOD. 32 For I spread terror in the land of the living; and he shall be laid to rest among the uncircumcised, with those who are slain by the sword, Pharaoh and all his multitude, declares the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel Is Israel's Watchman 33 The word of the LORD came to me: 2 “Son of man, speak to your people and say to them, If I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from among them, and make him their watchman, 3 and if he sees the sword coming upon the land and blows the trumpet and warns the people, 4 then if anyone who hears the sound of the trumpet does not take warning, and the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet and did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But if he had taken warning, he would have saved his life. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand. 7 “So you, son of man, I have made a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me. 8 If I say to the wicked, O wicked one, you shall surely die, and you do not speak to warn the wicked to turn from his way, that wicked person shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. 9 But if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, that person shall die in his iniquity, but you will have delivered your soul. Why Will You Die, Israel? 10 “And you, son of man, say to the house of Israel, Thus have you said: ‘Surely our transgressions and our sins are upon us, and we rot away because of them. How then can we live?' 11 Say to them, As I live, declares the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn back, turn back from your evil ways, for why will you die, O house of Israel? 12 “And you, son of man, say to your people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him when he transgresses, and as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall by it when he turns from his wickedness, and the righteous shall not be able to live by his righteousness5 when he sins. 13 Though I say to the righteous that he shall surely live, yet if he trusts in his righteousness and does injustice, none of his righteous deeds shall be remembered, but in his injustice that he has done he shall die. 14 Again, though I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,' yet if he turns from his sin and does what is just and right, 15 if the wicked restores the pledge, gives back what he has taken by robbery, and walks in the statutes of life, not doing injustice, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 16 None of the sins that he has committed shall be remembered against him. He has done what is just and right; he shall surely live. 17 “Yet your people say, ‘The way of the Lord is not just,' when it is their own way that is not just. 18 When the righteous turns from his righteousness and does injustice, he shall die for it. 19 And when the wicked turns from his wickedness and does what is just and right, he shall live by this. 20 Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.' O house of Israel, I will judge each of you according to his ways.” Jerusalem Struck Down 21 In the twelfth year of our exile, in the tenth month, on the fifth day of the month, a fugitive from Jerusalem came to me and said, “The city has been struck down.” 22 Now the hand of the LORD had been upon me the evening before the fugitive came; and he had opened my mouth by the time the man came to me in the morning, so my mouth was opened, and I was no longer mute. 23 The word of the LORD came to me: 24 “Son of man, the inhabitants of these waste places in the land of Israel keep saying, ‘Abraham was only one man, yet he got possession of the land; but we are many; the land is surely given us to possess.' 25 Therefore say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: You eat flesh with the blood and lift up your eyes to your idols and shed blood; shall you then possess the land? 26 You rely on the sword, you commit abominations, and each of you defiles his neighbor's wife; shall you then possess the land? 27 Say this to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: As I live, surely those who are in the waste places shall fall by the sword, and whoever is in the open field I will give to the beasts to be devoured, and those who are in strongholds and in caves shall die by pestilence. 28 And I will make the land a desolation and a waste, and her proud might shall come to an end, and the mountains of Israel shall be so desolate that none will pass through. 29 Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I have made the land a desolation and a waste because of all their abominations that they have committed. 30 “As for you, son of man, your people who talk together about you by the walls and at the doors of the houses, say to one another, each to his brother, ‘Come, and hear what the word is that comes from the LORD.' 31 And they come to you as people come, and they sit before you as my people, and they hear what you say but they will not do it; for with lustful talk in their mouths they act; their heart is set on their gain. 32 And behold, you are to them like one who sings lustful songs with a beautiful voice and plays6 well on an instrument, for they hear what you say, but they will not do it. 33 When this comes—and come it will!—then they will know that a prophet has been among them.” Footnotes [1] 32:5 Hebrew your height [2] 32:12 Or wealth [3] 32:17 Hebrew lacks in the twelfth month [4] 32:20 Hebrew She [5] 33:12 Hebrew by it [6] 33:32 Hebrew like the singing of lustful songs with a beautiful voice and one who plays (ESV) Evening: 1 Peter 1 1 Peter 1 (Listen) Greeting 1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who are elect exiles of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, 2 according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in the sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and for sprinkling with his blood: May grace and peace be multiplied to you. Born Again to a Living Hope 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, 5 who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, 9 obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. 10 Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, 11 inquiring what person or time1 the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories. 12 It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look. Called to Be Holy 13 Therefore, preparing your minds for action,2 and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, 15 but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” 17 And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one's deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, 18 knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. 20 He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you 21 who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. 22 Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, 23 since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God; 24 for   “All flesh is like grass    and all its glory like the flower of grass.  The grass withers,    and the flower falls,25   but the word of the Lord remains forever.” And this word is the good news that was preached to you.

53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. 53:3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 53:8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. 53:9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. 53:10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. 53:11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. 53:12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

In episode 130 of the Futurized podcast (@futurized2), the topic is: Future Bestsellers. Our guest is Vikrant Shaurya (@VikrantShaurya), CEO & founder, BestsellingBook.com. Futurized is hosted by Trond Arne Undheim (@trondau), futurist, author, investor, and serial entrepreneur. In this conversation, they talk about: Why do people write books these days? What does it do for you? What is authority? How to you make it work in a monetization strategy? What is a bestseller? We discuss Vikrant's framework to Produce, Publish and Profit. Trond's takeaway: Writing a bestselling book is every author's dream. I've written five and I am nowhere near a full understanding of what it takes. How can Vikrant claim to have discovered the formula? It's exciting to see outsider perspectives on publishing because this ancient business model is surely changing. So, it seems, the motivation to write a book shouldn't so much be to sell it in thousands of copies as much as it should be to use it to become an expert and establish your authority and then use that platform to make a living in other ways. Makes a lot of sense, and then perhaps, with a bit of effort and investment, there's a method to selling a bunch of books, too. Who knows what books will look like in the future and who will be writing and marketing them? Surely, the machines will help. Thanks for listening.

This week on The Literary Life podcast, we are excited to bring you a much anticipated interview with Dr. Carolyn Weber, author of the popular memoir, Surprised by Oxford. She is also currently a professor at New College Franklin. To keep up with Carolyn, visit carolynweber.com or follow her on Facebook. Angelina and Cindy kick off the conversation by asking Carolyn about her childhood and how she came to love reading. They talk about her experience in school education and whether that differed from her personal reading life. Carolyn talks about her love of teaching and her immersive literary education experience at Oxford. She also expands on the way that reading the Bible for the first time opened her eyes to so many more of the truths in the literature she had read. Commonplace Quotes: Unexpectedly, it was Oxford that taught me it was okay to be both feminine and smart, that intelligence was, as a friend put it, a “woman's best cosmetic.” Carolyn Weber I'm like an addict when it comes to books. Compelled to read, understand, savor, wrangle with, be moved by, learn to live from these silent companions who speak so loudly. Surely some language must have a word for such a “book junkie”? Carolyn Weber We must not, that is, try to behave as though the Fall had never occurred nor yet say that the Fall was a Good Thing in itself. But we may redeem the Fall by a creative act. Dorothy Sayers Batter my heart, three-person'd God by John Donne Batter my heart, three-person'd God, for you As yet but knock, breathe, shine, and seek to mend; That I may rise and stand, o'erthrow me, and bend Your force to break, blow, burn, and make me new. I, like an usurp'd town to another due, Labor to admit you, but oh, to no end; Reason, your viceroy in me, me should defend, But is captiv'd, and proves weak or untrue. Yet dearly I love you, and would be lov'd fain, But am betroth'd unto your enemy; Divorce me, untie or break that knot again, Take me to you, imprison me, for I, Except you enthrall me, never shall be free, Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.

This week YOUR SISTER'S GOING OUT... WITH DEAN! We are talking 1998's Trey Parker and Matt Stone's comedy Sports film BASEketball. The boys are learning what happened the the Oakland Raiders, Reel Big Fish's back catalogue and Dean treats the boys to a mini game of 'Are You A Dead'. Dean is the host of That Fking show: Part Gameshow, part chat show, all entertaining...that sounds like a decent elevator pitch. ThatFkingShow is another podcast looking to get some of that Spotify money. Join hosts former man-baby and recovering sh*tlord Boo Lemont, Art goth Nik Nak munching creeper magnet Yorkshire lass Abbie Stabby, and Fierce female pro-wrestling Amazon warrior queen Ayesha Raymond, as they talk about life, love and well... pretty much whatever task master producer ThatFKingGuy has made a trivia quiz about that week. Play along while listening to them compete in games such as "Are you a Dead?", "La La Land" and "Tuckers Luck" The only podcast gameshow dedicated to Chris Tucker. --- BASEketball is a 1998 American sports comedy film co-written and directed by David Zucker and starring South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, along with Yasmine Bleeth, Jenny McCarthy, Robert Vaughn, Ernest Borgnine, and Dian Bachar. The film follows the history of the sport of the same name (created by Zucker years earlier), from its invention by the lead characters as a game they could win against more athletic types, to its development as a nationwide league sport and a target of corporate sponsorship. This is the only work involving Parker and Stone that was neither written, directed, nor produced by them, although Zucker himself has stated that Parker and Stone contributed innumerable suggestions for the film, most of which were used.  --- Join us on the Socials: Twitter Instagram Facebook Support the show (Buy me a Coffee)  --- Transcription I guys an Nesho we're looking at an horn, machos fawn bog named McCarthy bleef stone in Park, Lookin N N N T it years, basketball, hello, everyone and welcome to this week's episode of one hundred things.

Okay, so we open in Yankee Stadium, Reggie Jackson, this Guy Reggie Jackson, who look I've got a level with you before before we get properly started. I don't know a lot too much about American sports right. My American sport is Hannibal. I mean sorry, football is American football. If I e work any of them yeah and a yes, that's the one and I I'm a Miami Dolphins Fan, which means that I, for about a week at the start of the season and very positive, I'm certainly going to win the Super Bowl. No for the rest of the season. I just shake my head and a disappointed. John. You don't like sports generally you're, not really a sportsman anyway. I not been brought in Policastro Ney. It was nothing. It was death thing an what's your association with the Murican Sports American sports. I tried getting into ice hockey for a bit a couple years back. I like the idea of isole know it's only port where fighting is part, the game as a trying to weed that out, but it is like you look at the history of it's like it's quite violent is quite fun. You know didn't really get very far with that, because you can't really watch it anywhere and the same thing having coupees, but I try I get into the baseball because I was in Japan for a couple of weeks and one night we was come back from the somewhere had a couple of drinks, but on TV and Japan's playing career in baseball really got into it. It s really enjoyable to watch and it's very slow, very pays you at a couple of drinks in you. It's great I've currently wearing my Hiroshima Cap, baseball, Jo wow. I did wonder what that was so yeah hey some of the best things I bought out there yeah I try and support them, but the same thing. You can't really watch over here that easily, if you, if you are interested in getting into ice socket, I do recommend going to a game because it is just as exciting when you're there I used to go and watch not an panthers when lived in the Midlands. So like we have a London team, don't we yeah, I couldn't couldn't tell you what they called anymore or all in all. I know is that not good panthers of there Nottingham G, MB, Panthers Bat back talking about unionizing again, John always with the unionized. We Open Up Reggie Jackson, batting for the Yankees. Now. What I do know about baseball is the Yankee Song Right. We have to hate the Yankees, because it's The New York team. I assume- and I think they've bought their way to a lot of titles, of something I don't know, but we don't like the Yankees. That's that's it. Even though our podcast baseball team is a Yankees of Filia. Isn't it John that really is a riders, the double a affiliate of the Yankees, which I wish I'd known before we picked them, but what ll get out eleven land, you leven yeah, absolutely she's a witch. The main thing about the men oponent a bit less a tag line yet line of the new of ow James Bomb Film. We've got a couple of facts. Last of at our start, I ca. If a sort, Yuyan kees were alleged and originally named the New York Hilanders, but the name was changed back in one thousand nine hundred and thirteen because Ne do is using Hal Anders. I don't know why Reggie Jackson's nickname was Mr October m yeah we'll get a bit about that late. Rest Yeah! I don't know much about Regie Jackson, because as soon as I went and looked him up, I actually looked up a basket Wolmar by mistake at likes. My regato you're, going to tell us about Reginald Jackson. This leave that ten, this shore, that one is they all look the same, don't hi, I lading in yea, they are going to ball involved of some subject is that's how much I do not like spots. Actually, the only sport I won't grow up grew up watching Robinia, no, not nero, because because it was my dad was always hung over and then they like noise, so cause its lacing play. We just watching the G, that's a that's! A look into the s and eight really, as that we expected. Isn't it and Tel become national sports is like darts snow up, Yep anything quiet, yea, Joe Blam, Baron Billard billiards. That kind of thing. I can tell you a little bit about this Reggie Jackson, John Thankful likes, please. He played for Oakland Baltimore, the Yankees, the California angels. It's fourteen all star titles, which I think is another smash mouth song will come to that later on at five world series championships, three most valuable players to term. I really don't like the idea of somebody being of a value he's for home, run leaders, Yankees, retired number, forty four, because of him, and for good reason, unlike Birmingham City, who recently retired a shirt for a lad that had played a handful of games for them because Birmingham city or a joke of a football club, it was inducted into the baseball hall of fame in one thousand nine hundred and ninety three, now I'm going to read you this story, the Batum as I as it was reported because this this is just the wording of this, the writing of this. At the time. It's so early S, so Jackson was a victim of an attempted shooting in the early morning, hours of June, the first one thousand nine hundred and eighteen a few hours after hitting the game, winning elevent inning home runner to a home game against the Toronto. Blue, Jays Jackson drove his vehicle to the singles bar he frequented in a push neighborhood of swinging pubs and night spots amid high rise apartments, man hands of the east side, while searching for a parking spot. He asked the driver of a vehicle that was blocking the way to move and a passenger in the vehicle began. Yelling absentes and racial slurs at Jackson before throwing a broken bottle. Its car after other passer, is recognized Jackson and began joking with him about apprehending them. One of the men in the car twenty five year old Manhattan resident Angel Viera, allegedly returned with a point. Thirty eight caliber revolver fired three shots at Jackson, each which missed the era was criminally charged. Attempted murder in legal possession of deadly weapon. News on the incident was the third ever story broadcast on CNN, which had its inaugeratin later. That day I mean that's too much going on. Then you know if that was to happen to a sports start day. I mean that like you'd, never hear the end of that, would you it's three shots is: will we get the Guy Washes with three shots at the hand, Canon so he's firing. These these home runs he's done to already goes for a third one and these kids, these coupon Rima kids, who I think, look just like the adult coop and Rebathe d. Some really good unreal, yeah they're cute enough kids, says yeah. Give us it give us a give us a third home run is no not no. Third, one he's already hit to coop. He hits it. Coop catches the ball some day, I'm going to become a big spot. Star says K, which is. This is something that I that I was tweeted about earlier one of the week now. We then have this this chap this narrator talking about the the rates. Actually Stephen Machat Y, all right WHO's, an insanely prolific, character, actor. The last fifty years he's started in TV shows from like star Skin Hush Kojak Mimi, Vice Beautin, the beast, both the original Ron, perman series and the newer one, which I didn't even know they did. It was like a couple years back SEINFELD GON to Le La Law, the XL DET space. Nine will be Texas ranger in the strain it's been in a ton of film star, ranging from Theodor Rex, the woe gobots dinosaur, buddy cop. Maybe I remember that sad lives, Cup free, three hundred watchman history of violence and the mother film has another exclamation a yeah. If you want to, for a podcast suggest this guy's career, because he's got two hundred and fifteen credits and in DB wow yeah, you know the worst. The worst thing of this is Davis. Now I have an idea for a podcast and my wife hates you, because I cannot do a third podcast suster one of my favorite horror, films, which I mentioned on. One of our shows recently were doing our top five horror films, and this was like one of the ones that always made it ponty pool and it's based in a radio station, a DJ yeah was yeah. That was a lot of fun yeah. I like one of the things I didn't know he was doing the narration on this until this podcast and I was doing with the facts for- and I realized- Oh Stephen Matty Kayano was a slow bunner, but it really I enjoyed that thing. I went. I didn't think it went because I was an fast pipes, action, zome movies, but that was proper slot bun and joy em, every minute, yeah and if you can't find it online anywhere to watch or can't find a DVD to buy, you can get the audio drama of the film on Youtube, which I was a it wasfilmed and recorded at the same time. I believe- and it was our long audio play and the long lines of awesome Wales broadcast o good God really yeah. That's that's right on my street. Okay I'll, be I'll. Add that to the to the mimory AD of things that I'll be listening to in the car next week. So this whole thing is about how sport is on its ass in America and surely you would think nothing is kind of is more prescient now than that. So it basically says that all they want to do is spend more time celebrating than they do the actual game. These American football players are doing a river doubt celebration which at the time would have been. You know very kind of Oh yeah. You know by the rive at the time was ye, but now of course, less so river dance, premed on the ninth of February thousand nine hundred and ninety five at the point theater Dublin was the Interval Act at one thousand, nine hundred and ninety four. Your revision show it has been seen by over twenty five million people- big Jesus Jesus- He a God, flatly made his money and he ah he, but he was only in it for like a yeah yeah, but his anchors gave it or something the is. Is a looks at you, your fatly. Looking you lie, you should be fat but you're, not not gonna go with Michael Fatally Joke Michael Battely, oh ileal, he'th loads, going on they're talking about. Does this the stadiums with awful names, so the color change names ones like the preparation, h, stadium and nice pad back the maxie tampon stadium at the rim. Think you know how much its gross to world wide. I dread to think more than a billion dollars, jeest seven point six million or were at that point: wow diculous amount. Monetary is its like it's crazy yeah. I think jay logs ass was less, you know, wasn't it it was con a million. I no more passes e t h the whole thing about river dances. Who is that for because i mean john yo, you've got the celtic connection. Of course you know being a scotsman yeah for you, i stuff a non it was. I don't even know who that was for it's a massive thing at a time and it's not like lane danson mars a freeze, but everybody could do it. You had to be really fast, so it was a really yeah. It was, i don't know who's directed that selling end. Do you think? That's why colin farrel so good at line dancing that is famously colin farel is a great line. Dancer is because he's irish right i go bein an is because he grew up in dublin and not on a fucking farm. The line from in bruce, which is something we have got to cover on. There really did as is going at some stadiums. I looked up. Philadelphia is the wells fargo center home with the philadelphia flyers philadelphia. I was going to say sixty nine, as that would be much better at the seventy sixes and the philadelphia wings. Nashville is the nis and micro state. A certain of the nissan stadium in his a microstation would be good, though, wouldn't it home of the tennessee titans of the nfl and the tennessee state tigers of tennessee state to university. Just where shack made all these millions charlotte is the bank of america, stadium they've also got the jerry richardson stadium and the trust field stadium, as well as the american legion memorial stadium was fucking poppies everywhere, but the yeah i mean i was astounded by how every stadium every single stadium is named after something, whereas of course in the uk, you've got a few. Stadiums have taken the opportunity to do that, but example down the road we've got. We've got carliles brunton park, which you wouldn't sponsor, i'm considering sponsor it for the podcast things probably going to cost ten quid. You know you've got celtic and rangers. Who will never do that and yes go, you know, but then you've got you've got things. You know like rother room play it some. You know some stupidly named stadium and you know people are accreton stanley who you can't afford not to, but if you did that with chelsea or spurs or man united, it would just be. You know it's sacristan, isn't it really almostt because of those big clubs? Although that doesn't stop man city with the ts leading i mean they do it arsenal as well. Wasn't it at type of course, nals the emerich yeah yeah, i mean as a forest fan. I know listeners it's a it's a sham. So as a far as fan, i don't think i've ever specifically purchased anything that sponsors forest, since it was le bat laga in the s and i used to drink a lot of the bats longer, but only because the the beer that sponsored them before no longer exists of, i guess neither does love back preparation. H, gentlemen: it's an american brand of medication made by our good friends at fizer. That's the twice on the truck. We've talked about fier in a jump yeh, that's a one! I go a we're in the dornaus old, her tea, all right. Okay, we're all you be e! Bad one, all the all the push farmers in penrith we got ours, it's using the treatment of hemoroid, of course, and emeroids are caused in part, at least by inflam blood vessels and most versions of preparation, each work by reducing inflammation in blood vessels, different formulas, but in greece it includes three percent shark liver oil. Get some of that short liver oil in uranus, gentlemen, is the story there. I think on she's also good for healing tattoos. I've heard all right, okay, sure if it's fully safe to use on them, but when i had a friend who's like you had tattoos, you always used to get it here, like four leaves on or use preparation age for it all right. I just wench hit to a pantin and a a in i plan a e pantin line of it and is happy with that. Tan was what i put on mine when i got mine on manafacter years ago, yeah, because it was the thing that you were told today, yeah, so there's this football player can't remember who we signed, for he thinks he's that miami is at minnesota. He's played here there and everywhere, which, as we would call it in the uk's a journeyman pro, i think, is the term that they use and then they're talking about all the teams that have moved the jazz moved to salt lake city, where they don't allow music as a dig at the mormons it. If you have not seen the the fantastic orgasmo listeners, a recommend, you go and watch that, what's what's the two a book, a mormon, musical correct the buck, mormon of the we saw a few years ago in some london was fantastic. Sa daly cassite we're sitting either way that that's the one yeah yeah, it's something something like no worries. Isn't it it's like the lion, king or something yeah yeah, the raiders, moved from la and then moved to la and then back to oakland. No one in la noticed now. Here's why that's so precent, because the raiders have moved again because he did they did the la thing and it didn't work and they've moved again. They are now the lost vegas raiders jesus, but don't worry because in twenty years time they'll be the space raiders. I was going to see that you're going to move on as this tin british crisp chat, great yeah, so basically they've decided. You know. The whole story is that we need a sport that people can get involved in. You know that that sport truly is in the hearts and minds of people who love sport and that one day will kind of get back to that. We now meet adult coop and adult rema and adult keeps saying bein mind earlier on. He said some day, i'm going to be a big sport star. What's he saying now there on a big sports bar i'm going to own a big spot, but which is a dream of a lot of people? It's not something i'm particularly into because i think the probablys dead fo ones, but should we want to own a big sports bar gentleman? I did a little bit of looking into this. If we want to own one in the eu, which i think we technically still can we can kind of do it, but we have to jump through some hoops now i don't know what's happening in bala medinas in spain right, but i can tell you they are giving sports bows away. I assume it's something to do with a pandemic and brexit right: fifteen thousand europe for a sports bar at six thousand nine hundred and fifty euro for a non sports bar. I mean that's just fucking pennies yeah. If we want to sports bar in tor fan in gwent north wales, which looks like the phoenix club i found it on there, it's too probably is an a workingman's club, two hundred and ninety five thousand pounds for that. A london cocktail bar somewhere in north landon, five hundred and seventy five thousand pounds. Meanwhile, in the us, if you want one, the presumptuously named fantastic sports bar and lounge in westchester new new york state is a hundred ninety five thousand dollars. An irish pub and grill in midtown manhattan will run you one point: one five million dollar reduce london. One! Isn't that bad? Considering north london, i told be pier yeah, you would- and i was looking at- that the the turnover was huge as well yeah. We have a cooperi watering, the plants aptly. You can use your in dort blunts, but not rash body waste like in the movie, so your in his rich in things that been used for a generation health plot to grow. Occasionally they will include dna from bacteria which includes genes for antibiotic resistance. Oh, so, if you piss on crops, you could get crops that give you antipatica resistance, which is a considered a greater frit humanity than the climate crisis. All right. This bacteria will die out pretty quickly. However, so you got to actually store it for a bit before using our plants or there's certain systems you can use to third lie plants. The moment where household is quite ego friendly, we're getting cat litter from a company called natter sam, which essentially gives us a delivery litter every month and every month they pick up the waste from the cat. So, every time the cat poop piece everywhere, we put it into a bag and we send it back to me in the month and they transfer that into first lizer. I have written that down because that sounds like something we need to do with the sea. All the eco friendly people at there with cats that just and codo ok, the fasti there you go not not sponsor in the podcast, but should probably sponsor the so yeah. That is not something i expected to learn, but that's what this podcast about. So i love it so they're at britney s house they walk in it's like a docker's commercial. In here everybody i've just written everybody's, a was per soul. Really i didn't think you'd show up. Well, look. We wouldn't miss this! No! No!

The time was just part in o o an advertisement for chinos, because nell everybody was real, the chines and that that's that's the docket thing to it took me away because that i thought chines and khakis, but the same because it mentoit look up at this haly any difference. Apart from the thickness in the material, all right, obviously in kakis ave got pockets, but i was thinking, oh my god. For the years i thought i was ren chinos that to her khakis, i had no idea what i was wearing. She, no wine. I got colerne to it's. Just i think we is looking at to it. The majority was saying is more about the technic that we ever the actual things in the material so yeah, the more i or the more like. I assume what what you'd wear to know in the armed forces or to go adventuring. Perhaps i do the kaki yeah a skilled myself on the difference between chines and kakis.

These jokes, like yeah, well, bet you two twenty dollar reimers like make it fifty do o got fifty dollar we've got twenty dollars, but he says we won't do what you guys do. You know this kind of the hood we're going to do the hood game that we know and it's baseball rules. So baseball rules is, you know, you've got a place that you shoot from and it's a single is a more difficult shot. The further away you go is that when i mentioned tors is that where horse comes, you mentions a hole yeah so horse. The only the only thing i know of horse right, i didn't know it was a thing. So if you miss a shot, you get a letter and if you get the forward horse, then that's when you that's, when you're out as it is, the only in is from those tony hawks games. You know the tony hawks pro skater games and you did you i was talking about you. There was a there was a bit of that where you had to do a various you to do a better trick than the person you're playing, and if i didn't, if you didn't get more points in thirty seconds on the first before due or hit the trick, you would get a letter, and that was horse. That's the only thing i knew it from right. Yeah re reference in two thousand and nine: it has the nba actually sanctioned a hall school petition. Okay, it was similar to the film, and that was renamed because of a sponsor, says sort of horse. It was called the nba all star, gyka competition, and you had to get ge. I co alright of ho. I see yo yehoi lasted two years because it's boring, i'm guessing stupid, yeah, so free froze. Ah it's like you're seven hand. Seven by in it, you need to get seventy one or ekart's by like having a toname with the affair, is to pinales out yeah, no sex, yeah you're all right, so they based this. This school they school these guys that coop spits beer at one of them is like. You can't do that. I said no, it's allowed it's a siout and they win, but the jokes get the girls is. What do we get, that it's the jobs? First, you get the jobs, then you get the khakis and then you get the cher an i'm like yeah nice that solace reference to it's a day later and they're playing in the driveway. The psycho in this case is steve. Perry, steve perry, that's go. Why is that boys? Why is the lead singer of journey a psycho? I could quite figure that out. Do any of us know anything about steve perry. That is he such a dig that no enough to sake anybody unattractive or what i don't an because he sings one of the songs. Lier one doesn't, i think, he's just the tone of his voice. He's kind of right. I have no idea. I know me and my friends used to play paul and we use to do psychos as well and the kinds of thing was. I just saying steve perry. That's like the shot. I always at everyone off well, we stay fire lit about journey in our in our current episode of everything we learned from the simpsons were man, tom were talking about the episode of vever ned flanders, which you can get elsewhere, just lit a good episode, so we learned a little bit about that. I used to use journeys, don't be be good to yourself. So as my interests music in wrestling, oh did you really really big uplifting song, and every time i hear i was like yeah, i'm gonna do me. Do you mentions now like yeah? I, like that great my question. My question to you is dean our journey crap rock or was rock? Oh man, the deftly l, the cheese scale, yeah very igh up on that because of everyone loves, don't stop believing, which is oh yeah. It was good, it's just it's well over played. Now it really is absolutely yeah. Well, i know someone who had it as their when they were getting married when they were coming down the aisle they played that so so, john, my jesus, so you did know them. You don't anymore yushan yourself from that a man well put it this way. It was part of the tv show, don't tell the bright, oh really right. If you ever watch that there was a show where they did the wrestling wedding m, and it was that wedding, i don't think they played. I because obviously coperate, but it was a way on. I think the wedding lasted about nine months. Jesus we well did this stop believing they told them not to stop believing that to parti didn't know who i so so that they're shooting and this this guy turns up this. This squeak right as to shut off the gaps right and this little tiny, scrawny actor gets mauled by the dog. I loved this character and i thought this character, as is basically just the butt of all the shitty things that happen to anybody. Yeah yeah the trip park arima on at de fate to get him a leading part. They only wanted to leads and the comedy and obviously gave him ham an exta all right. It would be the fort to get him an actual part in the movie he's brilliant. As sholde boy in orgasmo that guy i do that, have you seen it john yeah, a a bauta hamster style anymore. I knew you wouldn't as anymore, can't believe it's taken till now for you to tell us the story of how you don't want to do have stand. I do want to get the special edition. Dvid acts. Apparently they do a commentary matin tray and they do it completely drunk all right. Wow o, like im slagging, the movie off kind of jokingly, okay pop pot, the podcast before podcast yeah, a podcast for a thing yeah. I absolutely love these guys by the way, i can't believe i haven't had the opportunity to say it. I think they were robbed of best song for the south park. Blane, canada, yeah, absolutely brilliant. It's a great it's a great film. The music is exceptional. The writing is brilliant. It's i don't really watch south bark any more. I can't really watch the early stuff, because it's it's not great, but i can't watch any of the new stuff because i i don't know what's going on was what is going on with the new stuff. The last time i watched it, it was trump, possibly crooked, hillary yeah you, you do need to know what's going on in the current world. I i don't know half the things i talking about. Sometimes it's last time i watched it shif, wasn't it you're, ignorant you're, ignorant rage, train ride, train, that's still my utter favorite favorite episode that and you've been to you've been to japan dean. As you said, early run so you're a big fan of whale and dolphin. We and of an fukee yeah, i think about fuck, you wal fuck, you dolphin weekly and i haven't seen the episode in so long, but i think about that all the time i mean it makes sense. So this this character is shooting off the gas, isn't get more by the dog and they say, look take a shot and if you get the shot, then we'll let you shut off, shut off the gas. It takes the short and he misses. Of course, three months later, it's gained a crowd and it's basically this this kind of neighborhood game. That's people sat kind of on the garden and in the yard, watching them play it. Squeaks part of the team and one of the one of the lines is my absolute favorite of the syces. I hear your sister's going out with squeak. I go out with his sister now we're going to say, fucked up stuff to make a me shop wawes. We got out this sister fucked up. What's what's your favorite of the psychos boys, because it's plenty coming, i just i just i was a sucker for the nepean all right. Okay, i, like the one with the place, pinning small people, i'm so glad. You said that because that's like the last eva psycho, isn't it and it's really good. Just that the the mind one the mind one's creepy yeah. I like, of course i like there swear, he's, got his finger up and he cuts his finger off. It is yeah. It's like a fucking, forty movie. I really like that. All this as one way it makes their faces, where we all these retentis coming up to say i yeah that's a they're, all good they're, all good. To an extent that a d and squeak putting on all the masks in one of the montages, and only when he takes the mask off and they see, is real famous in a scare squeak, gets sacked and then move him in with them. Is it you guys rip on me? Thirty now forteen more times and i'm out of here we skipped to the final, it's being watched by there's a big crowd, there's local tv news and they win the world championship of basketball, which is like two neighborhoods: isn't it yeah? I got the shirts and skin steam, which is a tradicion method of denoting teams and school games yeah.

Now, i'm going to get out stairs? I go. What did you learn tonight? Teachers are all not on yea a a suspicion. So let's say you got this, i know is an extra in this scene. I because i've seen this film so any time, but it's i've been watching it. So much s last couple of weeks and going back and watching bits here and they get notes. There's a scene where coo's about to shoot in the extra just behind him looks like he doesn't know how to clap. Oh right in he got make sound in on like extras and background and actors and he's got like a clear three inches of air between his hand. He's like doing this and at some point he looks, stops, looks down at his hands and starts doing it again. It's all these things are like a really awkward. I'm not going to go on see that now he's like second to the right second left of yeah taking the letter, the guy, when he's shooting and also you got the commentators in this game, one of them. The guy o, announces that the shirts, when the game is kato kalin right, i don't know if you know that is no, i don't anyone who's in to true crime will have. There is break up of that name. He is the most famous lodgin hollywood history, as he was living with o j simpson in his poor house with oj totally didn't, kill, nicol round simpson wow s. He was a prosecution star witness and his testimony win against o j's completely and he actually went out for burgers with oj right before he didn't do the thing he totally did. Do we his ain with the zuka previous firms of j simpson? I e linked in some sort of way, because that was on as before yeah i mean that that's great fact, but not only that it's it's super kind of like twisty. Isn't it you know, that's really come yeah. Maybe the gloves were him his, maybe that's why the glove didn't fit and that's why they had to acquit a is that the second week on the trut we've mentioned that o j simpson case is well john. She an that that episode isn't live, so you couldn't have known that we were talking about that now, yeah, that's always on people's minds. Oh no! It's absolutely people and again now.

The naked gun franchise o get out is so this year. Actually i to thousand and twenty one lea nesenus frank, drabbing yeah, i mean he's gone like full circle of his career, where he went like serious actor to random action star to like overplayed action. Stare he's like bruce willis at this point, where he he's doing any old crap with action in it, so him becoming a comedy actor. I, by there's a d of this, that i no t o from comin down to one of the first things: a shy. How we talk about spirits all the time on why it's not been an eye with peter o tool is a yeah is a great great funny is a funny steve, guttenberg film. I said it fine, i said it. Okay. Did you just see that? Yes, i said it's a steve, go funny, steve guttenberg film, and that first place comes to me movies. Great. I don't care who knows it. I bit about mission to moscow.

Here comes ted denslow, you love ted, denslow john, who is it yeah ogus, it's cabby canbys, giving new york in a it's. Do this see of jesus lay and gentlemen, the anti semitic podcast that you've always wanted i've written a board naniele i rat board name but sini translated. I borsten double oscar winner, of course, earlis borgnine, what you probably don't know about to, and actually we can't talk too much about him because we know he lived. He lived quite as old as he did because he liked wankin as we learned in the scannest, but he had a video documentary film about driving a called earnest borgnine on the bus. I get all the birds on my basket. Yehoi anis bore on on the bushes, where he drove a bus across the united states to meet his fans. You can get it it's on the internet somewhere. I couldn't find it for free, but i assume i'd be able to find it somewhere on the internet year. Forty five minutes in me, you find an panopeus me, a dish. Porlacu you give me a lift to to the station. You get darling. Look like a bus driver o. You look like a happy yeah on a helicopter pilot. One of the things on our show is we do. Are you a dead m yep? It's again will be sort of. I give some information about actor and we want to say when they died and how they died. So on a little mini game. When did his ball? Nine die, which yeah go you putting me on the spa, fucking podcast e went those born die two thousand and ten seven tis an incorrect, thud and entee is incorrect, is two thousand and twelve all right and how did you die got habeo cocteau, so i did elde failed miserably at the triple jump in the olympics in london. I assume you just died of old age, kidney failure right, okay, his kidneys died of old age, yeah yeah. So if he got a transplant, thou we'd have been pissing like a champion, find out later on. He in a movie which we will eventually get to. So we scored nothing there. Dan is what you're saying so we didn't add anything. Not anything. Co school draw, that's a ship. If ever there was a thing, so he says i i want to make basketball and actual will think he said you. He said the problem. Is you kids, with your dan fogelberg, you zima, and your pack, man, video games? You've got attention spans that are measured in miller seconds rather than minutes. Of course, you know me. I like to learn a little bit about whatever nonsense is just just mentioned in it. In a thing, zemer is a drink, zima, clear, molt, clear lightly, carbonated alcoholic beverage made en distributed by. Would you believe the cues viacom deal that phase in it yeah due one thousan, nine hundred and ninety three market is an alternative to be an example of what is now often referred to as a cooler, steve queen's a big fan. Four point: seven to five point: four percent algol by volume producing the united states ceased in october, two thousand and eight, but it's still marketed in japan and zima means winter in a number of slavic languages. They do like a cooler in japan. Actually do they really right? Okay, yeah, i think strong zeros are cool, is and apparently they're the ones that people drink it doesn't taste like alcohol is a like ten percent in and like giant can so you just will hammer them back and they absolutely kill people right. Okay thinks some term they use for as a guy jin killer, all right, okay, something like that. But yeah. Essentially people go over there drink them and they don't realize they have drunk. They are until they drunk out three or four of them, and i just staging around the place. I mean i'll, be honest with you. I like it. I like a strong beer like an pa or or something like that, i'm drinking a form bridge hook. Imperio. I pear at the moment seven point: four percent i'll know when i've drunk that i will sit ye. You just will know when i'm d pack, man, god. I can't believe we're talking about pack manners if three men of our rage and ours or just just general demean or don't know everything that there is to know about that fucking little yellow bastard, but listen, developed and owned by bandai. Namco, formerly an come midway of created them, a tari. Of course we know was the probably the big one mass mejor rink. The first entry was released. No kid in one thousand nine hundred and eighty packman is one of the longest running best selling and highest grossing video game franchises in history. Just behind dizzy. I assume no o, god yea a chuck egg, its willie h, horosho skin. It's regular releases over the last forty years, so many forty eight million copies across all platforms and as grossed fourteen billion dollars, most of which was from the original video game. Recently i played, i think it was packman infinite or something no packman, one thousand nine hundred nine on the switch, which was free, which was basically tetris, ninety nine, but with you doing pack man and when you got killed, you were out and if you didn't get killed you and not yet people get killed before you. You fuck off. Oh yeah. I've seen that and on lane thing, yeah, i'm teches. Ninety nine i'm one hundred percent behind it's brilliant yeah, because once i finished fourth fucking loser, i am packman of originally called puck. Man. Yes well do, but they change your name because of the graffiti nist. That's things we learned from scott pilgrim, the film yeah yeah, the future episode which i'm specifically laying off watching again. I've got a steel book blue rays somewhere on the shelf, but i'm specifically not watching it again until we do an episode, because i just i want to come into it- cleans yeah yeah what yo start hating the movie, because you've had to watch it so much. Well, i say yeah if you, if you want to look back through our back catalog every film that we've watched safer, probably airplane, i hate, because i've seen airplane or to link back to this movie so same director. Of course, i've seen air playing the same number of times, if not more than years. I've been on this earth, so i've seen airplane, probably forty five fifty times, and i'm only for two years old. So there you go that's and care mab dolge bar, which we all come to point eventually tonight. He wants it to be like the old days. No moving teams, no teams moving cities. He wants everyone to be paid the same just like when i was a kid and i want them all to be treated like indentured servants. I gin wow, so they agree they do it and five years later we're in this little statum. I think these stadium sets are really kind of the cute little sets that it looks really good. It's got like this. This, this baseball kind of diamond on the ground, yeah and they've all got this garage with this garage kind of a sad. What looks like a facade anyway, as we learned later on when coop goes flying a this loess. I thought t was quite funny. I like that at the house bands did anybody spot the house band for the beers, a real big fish, real big fish. I have seen real big fish, probably more times than i've seen any of the band. I have seen real big fish, maybe five or six times and i've got. To be honest, i have never seen the same line up twice at now. I think there's only one of them left i m by about them, but i'm guessing you know all about them anyway. Well, i they o listeners, don't so go for it. So there's a big scar, punk revival in the mid s, so they got pretty big off that they lacked the winston i lead to so they didn't they go. I got a son kind of popular, but not really big, because i need like a big front person charismatic or you know really good, looking to step over being scarp on to popular culture. Their albums actually tell a story as they go through them from the first one was everything sucks, which is a self release debut to turn the radio off. They were telling a story: the band trying to make it for me to style a pop, the culture, the biggest hit off, that album is called sell out, which they consider they actually did to get to the album release itself and the label contract. Then they had. Why do they rock so hard? This is the alban they released when the in the film. This is about how they made it during the tor on the album two members of the band leave, one of them after committing battery on a security yard at the venal. Oh you'll hate him specifically, then now we deserve it. He re, then they hit the area where they fed up with what they're doing and released cheer up, which was a contractual release and they made which they had to make and then follow that we we're not happy until you're happy, which is the bitter and angry album which they released. After being, let go from the label themselves so yeah they tell a story for other albums, but it's all bounty scarf funk anyway. Yeah no and i own each and every one of those albums on cd, because you know the s and w and yeah real a few episodes of that mostly featuring covers, which they do one in this film, which is a great cover. That's a funk ton there's only one original remaining member, and that is front man, aaron barret m yeah he's eating all the rest of them. I think, is a works. Yeah the it was weird because they always had kind of like there's, always a big offish job. It's weird, because there's there's two front men: isn't it you know they always kind of had you know the two from men depended on the song, but yeah you got me thinking about cheer up, which is a t he's a really fucking awful, like doldrum kind of album that ends with a wow. I just want to go. Listen real, big fishing in which it is a is a saturday night, and i am only forty two years old so on an they've. Also got these these fantastic and look. I've goin to love with it. They've got these absolutely superb cheer leaders these overly sexualized shibuya. So it's hard to believe that the commentation, a sense art believe five years ago. This was only played in driveways and it's hard to believe that five years ago those girls were in grade school. You just like a lamb, because the eldest, the oldest you can be in grade school. Gentlemen, he's fourteen years old that we're back to nuns teachers is a thanks. Not ten ounces, yeah, absolutely well yeah, there's plenty of them not just on the bbc wish. I was on the bbc gravy train anyway. Coop hits a home run and it's down to squeak to hit one so squeaks watching watching everything, even though it's this tiny little car and they do this on, but he's watching on this hand held tv and the one thing i thought about this, and i know dean you're a bit of a retro gamer as it were. All i could think was. Does anybody remember the game gear tv, which was the thing that you plugged in the top of your game? Gas? My so started game gear thing that you pulled in the top of your game, get which had a little dial on it where you strolled through to get your tv channel, and it also had a massive aerial that you put it like: a fucking police scanner, a antal tv anyway shock all right. Okay, that cause you yahmni. What was your model of handel tv job? It was all it was as alba old bo jessica, yeah like that, could have been that actually, you that are the usual technics techniques- ce right, okay, the model of tv he's watching the tv, the bright, yellow one is a v tg action, sport vision with a three point: two inch screen three point: two inches man, deponent of your pleasure, o like your pleasure right there. I did recently put the batteries in my in my game, boy color. So i could play monkey puncher after feature in on what the fuck do you want, because they were talking about monkey puncher in an episode, i've got a copy of monkey put jane. I put the batteries in, and i lasted probably about twenty minutes, for i have to give up with a headache. Yeah that screen is just far too small to small is far too small. Wasn't the back lit one either? No, no wit. No, it was the yeah just that just the standard one which i remember playing in the back of the car on the way home from a visit to family and when it gets dark. You know you can only play it when you know five. Second, two second intervals when you go past the street like yeah, so this is the denslow cup which is named after an this organized character. It's like the f, a cup final, of course, or the world series. Coops got the final shot dennis lo at the guy sykes him out by saying that looks like your boy: denzil is about to buy the farm he's choking on this hot dog, coop sies falls drops over, they lose he's like. I can't believe what you lose, do the happy dance and that and it just bought everything to swimming back the amount of times. I would say to myself and those pissed off tou the habitants to in the habitants. Do the song as well don't have to do this song. Do the sung during the happy dance haco tries to help denslow, but it's a dozen egg night, because that's what we do in american sports. We have stupid things to do so. We can't get to denslow because he's being he's been hit. Wele the slow motion looks like a kind of a thing out of an you know like an american war. Movie is been hit by all these these eggs and and he can't get to him now. I couldn't help but look up all of the stupid fucking ideas that american sports teams do to get people through right. So i came up with a couple. The seattle mariners apparently had a compost night right. Where, if you arrived for the game, they would send you home with a bag of compossible material. Now the composite material was a cigarette but a broken down hot dogs and all that shit yeah. That was underneath the bleachers. So let me do very well this one's brilliant, the charleston vever dogs, the nobody night. Apparently they thought it ud be a great idea and get the teams and headlines if they had an official attendance of zero for one of their games, which is why they called it. The nobody night fans would already paid for their ticket were locked out of the game and no one was allowed to enter the stadium until the fifth inning jesus, because that's when the games declared official and the attendance is recorded, they they lost five. Two and all of the runs were seen in the first five innings, the first four indins i mean fuck off american sports, just go home, you've drunk twenty cars and you can still probably drive, or even if you can't, you probably will, because america he gets to denslow denslow, is basically dying and he's like what is it at least he's waving the the hot dog bun. He paid love to get you one, but they stop serving them after the upto the seven days and in the you i look to it o. Is it true all right? Okay, so so, if you wanted, a hot dog lad, the the ball game, three dollars at yankee stadium at seven dollars, twenty five at the washington nationals, national park, jesus and six dollars. Seventy five, a it t park, which is home of san francisco dear dear dear, for got in bread in it, just basically be playing some baseball ik, because it's only fifty peop for a hot we're talking. So totanen was kate vine in london that it was the otto has like a little arena of the side of it. Was it round the back of the o tos that when he just put a couple of blokes in a cage in an alley this, the the indigo that was it so ben you on the side of it? I've seen cementeth to his spoken? More word? Oh a yeah! I was a lot like s, terrible acoustics in there. So him it was quite bad for the cage. Finding was quite good, but thou for one beer was eight pounds.

Unless it's red stripe, we hanekin, but all right. Okay, it's decent book! We went to were to new wore a couple of months ago in manchester in heaton park and the only beer i mean i was driving to a number beer any way, but the only beer on offer was, i think, seven quite a pint and it was pints of karlsburg. It was a pint can of karlsburg. They put they basically empty. A pint can into a plastic glass to set you on your way for seven quid, because you're a fucking cat go, go, don't do gangs better, they did yeah she'll, do the fucking ar so de denslow buys the farm, as is the line and they're interviewing the interviewing cooper at the end. In the thing, and it's a thing in a me in america, they're always wearing these like hats and tshirts, and things that save winner super bowl winner and all these kind things. But what they've done in this movie they've, given them their branded gear, but it says loser egret. This is a good time with that and the guys interview in him- and he says you know- is how are you doing this is yeah. I don't think i should be on my own tonightand, the guy.

It was in glasgow, john, at the at the ice hockey, the drina yeah, when e wan a fantastic time and it's i would rather go and watch it, i'm not massively into it, but i do like a smaller wrestling show which obviously donal appreciate, but we at a great time- and i kind of got back on w we for maybe six months till i realized it- was just all fucking putting money in the pockets of the worst human being alive, not donald trump, but one of his big supports. Yeah. I mean people. Look at johnsy, jose like the big suber and people look up to him. You think years ago, people looking up the whole cogan, hmm yeah yeah. Can i learn o coan, i learned the other day is a revisionist of history. He came out the other day to say that andrew the giant died two weeks after he power bombed him. We first of all, i do think hall co could ever power bombed and doing the giant to? I think they fought in like wrestle to right, which is something like seven years died in three there you can. Okay, yeah i mean revision is my free yeah. That was like a couple of years. I mean you died. Ninety two. So with me a free in track, the one recoes, a massive race, yeah he's awful yeah. Here you go, he loves. I ate one o cocolamus too much fuck too much of you not see that video google, that that's that's some shit right, okay, so contract. So i is signing autographs for them. Remer arrives and says it says. Oh, i know i love kids yeah and he says: hey kid. Heads up throws a ball at him. Hit him directly in the face and knocks him out. Travis is blind explains why i wasn't very good with his hands now this news report- and i think i probably mentioned this during the escape from new york episode. In fact, i know for a fact. I did because i wouldn't miss the opportunity, the guys talking about denslow. He says in a periods of time finally ran out for the old cock sucker, which i say it at the time, a lot of the time when somebody dies, especially if someone i don't like a lot of the time, a bit of audio, for that sounds so word because he's obviously a dr yes, when, yes, he said i've, no idea. Why, though, and if you try and look up online, if there's like any reason for it you to do old, cock ocker, it's worrying olthat, one yeah les before you got the rights when they start and winning the game. Can you tell me which sporting event in one tuan, nine hundred n? No nine is the first modern day right after a sporting event, which two teams are involved with it. They go will give you a bit of a clue which two teams evolved in the first ever sports, right, wolverhampton, wanderers yeah and i etonians ridges, so tic all right, jo rof course. It fucking was like an a v in it. Yeah o nine scottish cut fine. Also tic and ranges went to two or draw instead of going to an extra time the crowd invaded the pitch and the match was called off with a hundred people injured. O ousel abuse was up three hundred percent that day, as always, with a fucking old, firm game. That's a give the bloody are. This restaurant is round up pies the other line that he says is theodore denslow d, h, n. Eighty two, his hair piece was twenty four is now he's got this video will, which is really weird. So what i discovered from this was densil was an actor like he was a like a western movie actor right because he's talking throughout about about- and these are the chaps that i wore on rooting- toton some o god, so a yeah yeah and he says- and here's the poncho that saved me from the rain in such and such it's all kind of going on in the background. While everyone else is having a conversation, because i've watched it twice already, i was kind o what the fuck is dense saying in this scene. I do nothing, no vet and baxter as sat together, he's commiserating her. We all know she's going to be given the team there's this there's. This niece gets given a plate commemorating the pope's visit to dodger stadium, and i was like surely that never happened. Apparently, the pope visit dodger stadium in one thousand nine hundred and eighty seven, our old friend, pope j, p, doss, of course, so films don't always like it as it's the largest crowd in stadium history, at sixty three thousand and at the at the time at least. Now it's a hundred and fifteen thousand three hundred and one for a preseason friendly between the red socks and the dodges, a fucking preseason friendly. He leaves the team to coop, but only if they win the denslow cup this year and then, if they don't, if that will get the team, if that, of course, is his geny mccarthy, as e semi disgusted now coopid like to talk to you alone and nobody leaves the room like he gives them like seconds. Nobody leaves the room they all carry on. You remember that time. You had crabs and the only thing that would help was that lotion k now yeah. I well find another thing for it: us rubbin it into his body and singing i'm too sexy, which i mean i would like to say, really dates the film, but that sounds like seven years old at this point: yeah yeah, i'm too sexty by rights at fred. I sorry, if you got mtesa fred, do no no i've as got a fuck this guy on tunie hundred n ninety one w record number one in australia, austria, new zealand, holland, canada, the us and second in the uk, probably behind joe donty, should up be your face because that's always like number one over other things. Isn't it oh yeah, yes, number one over van correct to o vienna. It is platinum in australia and the us the fucks buy in that, even in ninety one, a lot of old shit, physical media yeah. Well i mean you know: welwet existed at the time, so why not? Oh janet jenna gets season tickets for the kids, which seems like a really like. Surely he could just do that even if he wasn't dead, you know. Why would you have to give those in his will and then that's only for like this season. I don't know there was just something about that. Just didn't didn't really make a lot of sense to me anyway. Yeah it's a bit easy like a millionaire, yeah yeah, i could have given it a lot more nolte or just created a box for the kids yeah exactly back to talking to a vet. You know look this isn't necessarily over for you maybe come over at some point and we can lay some carpets. I haven't mentioned that it's robert vaughan, robert bawn, is another one of these actors who seems to be very gain for all this kind of stuff like he, like borg, nine he's in on it.

Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him. 3 Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. 4 But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected, 5 “Why wasn't this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year's wages.” 6 He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it. 7 “Leave her alone,” Jesus replied. “It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial. 8 You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me.” Intentional Sacrificial Extravagant The enemy of generosity is selfishness.

In response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the FDA has asked a federal judge to give it 55 years to release the data related to the Pfizer COVID vaccine. You read that correctly, it will take 55 years for the public to know the truth about the vaccine trials. One has to wonder what those documents will show if they don't want to release them for over half a century. Doesn't seem like it could be anything good. The judge in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial banned MSNBC from the courtroom after one of the network's freelancers was caught allegedly following the jury bus. Of course, the news outlet claims it's all a misunderstanding and they definitely weren't going to reveal the identities of the jurors. Surely, we can trust the word of the corporate press because their intentions are always pure.

Old Testament: Ezekiel 1–3 Ezekiel 1–3 (Listen) Ezekiel in Babylon 1 In the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the exiles by the Chebar canal, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.1 2 On the fifth day of the month (it was the fifth year of the exile of King Jehoiachin), 3 the word of the LORD came to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the Chebar canal, and the hand of the LORD was upon him there. The Glory of the Lord 4 As I looked, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, and a great cloud, with brightness around it, and fire flashing forth continually, and in the midst of the fire, as it were gleaming metal.2 5 And from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had a human likeness, 6 but each had four faces, and each of them had four wings. 7 Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the sole of a calf's foot. And they sparkled like burnished bronze. 8 Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands. And the four had their faces and their wings thus: 9 their wings touched one another. Each one of them went straight forward, without turning as they went. 10 As for the likeness of their faces, each had a human face. The four had the face of a lion on the right side, the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and the four had the face of an eagle. 11 Such were their faces. And their wings were spread out above. Each creature had two wings, each of which touched the wing of another, while two covered their bodies. 12 And each went straight forward. Wherever the spirit3 would go, they went, without turning as they went. 13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches moving to and fro among the living creatures. And the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning. 14 And the living creatures darted to and fro, like the appearance of a flash of lightning. 15 Now as I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel on the earth beside the living creatures, one for each of the four of them.4 16 As for the appearance of the wheels and their construction: their appearance was like the gleaming of beryl. And the four had the same likeness, their appearance and construction being as it were a wheel within a wheel. 17 When they went, they went in any of their four directions5 without turning as they went. 18 And their rims were tall and awesome, and the rims of all four were full of eyes all around. 19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures rose from the earth, the wheels rose. 20 Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, and the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures6 was in the wheels. 21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those rose from the earth, the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. 22 Over the heads of the living creatures there was the likeness of an expanse, shining like awe-inspiring crystal, spread out above their heads. 23 And under the expanse their wings were stretched out straight, one toward another. And each creature had two wings covering its body. 24 And when they went, I heard the sound of their wings like the sound of many waters, like the sound of the Almighty, a sound of tumult like the sound of an army. When they stood still, they let down their wings. 25 And there came a voice from above the expanse over their heads. When they stood still, they let down their wings. 26 And above the expanse over their heads there was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like sapphire;7 and seated above the likeness of a throne was a likeness with a human appearance. 27 And upward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were gleaming metal, like the appearance of fire enclosed all around. And downward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and there was brightness around him.8 28 Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness all around. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking. Ezekiel's Call 2 And he said to me, “Son of man,9 stand on your feet, and I will speak with you.” 2 And as he spoke to me, the Spirit entered into me and set me on my feet, and I heard him speaking to me. 3 And he said to me, “Son of man, I send you to the people of Israel, to nations of rebels, who have rebelled against me. They and their fathers have transgressed against me to this very day. 4 The descendants also are impudent and stubborn: I send you to them, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD.' 5 And whether they hear or refuse to hear (for they are a rebellious house) they will know that a prophet has been among them. 6 And you, son of man, be not afraid of them, nor be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns are with you and you sit on scorpions.10 Be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house. 7 And you shall speak my words to them, whether they hear or refuse to hear, for they are a rebellious house. 8 “But you, son of man, hear what I say to you. Be not rebellious like that rebellious house; open your mouth and eat what I give you.” 9 And when I looked, behold, a hand was stretched out to me, and behold, a scroll of a book was in it. 10 And he spread it before me. And it had writing on the front and on the back, and there were written on it words of lamentation and mourning and woe. 3 And he said to me, “Son of man, eat whatever you find here. Eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.” 2 So I opened my mouth, and he gave me this scroll to eat. 3 And he said to me, “Son of man, feed your belly with this scroll that I give you and fill your stomach with it.” Then I ate it, and it was in my mouth as sweet as honey. 4 And he said to me, “Son of man, go to the house of Israel and speak with my words to them. 5 For you are not sent to a people of foreign speech and a hard language, but to the house of Israel—6 not to many peoples of foreign speech and a hard language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely, if I sent you to such, they would listen to you. 7 But the house of Israel will not be willing to listen to you, for they are not willing to listen to me: because all the house of Israel have a hard forehead and a stubborn heart. 8 Behold, I have made your face as hard as their faces, and your forehead as hard as their foreheads. 9 Like emery harder than flint have I made your forehead. Fear them not, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house.” 10 Moreover, he said to me, “Son of man, all my words that I shall speak to you receive in your heart, and hear with your ears. 11 And go to the exiles, to your people, and speak to them and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD,' whether they hear or refuse to hear.” 12 Then the Spirit11 lifted me up, and I heard behind me the voice12 of a great earthquake: “Blessed be the glory of the LORD from its place!” 13 It was the sound of the wings of the living creatures as they touched one another, and the sound of the wheels beside them, and the sound of a great earthquake. 14 The Spirit lifted me up and took me away, and I went in bitterness in the heat of my spirit, the hand of the LORD being strong upon me. 15 And I came to the exiles at Tel-abib, who were dwelling by the Chebar canal, and I sat where they were dwelling.13 And I sat there overwhelmed among them seven days. A Watchman for Israel 16 And at the end of seven days, the word of the LORD came to me: 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me. 18 If I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,' and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, in order to save his life, that wicked person shall die for14 his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. 19 But if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, or from his wicked way, he shall die for his iniquity, but you will have delivered your soul. 20 Again, if a righteous person turns from his righteousness and commits injustice, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die. Because you have not warned him, he shall die for his sin, and his righteous deeds that he has done shall not be remembered, but his blood I will require at your hand. 21 But if you warn the righteous person not to sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live, because he took warning, and you will have delivered your soul.” 22 And the hand of the LORD was upon me there. And he said to me, “Arise, go out into the valley,15 and there I will speak with you.” 23 So I arose and went out into the valley, and behold, the glory of the LORD stood there, like the glory that I had seen by the Chebar canal, and I fell on my face. 24 But the Spirit entered into me and set me on my feet, and he spoke with me and said to me, “Go, shut yourself within your house. 25 And you, O son of man, behold, cords will be placed upon you, and you shall be bound with them, so that you cannot go out among the people. 26 And I will make your tongue cling to the roof of your mouth, so that you shall be mute and unable to reprove them, for they are a rebellious house. 27 But when I speak with you, I will open your mouth, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD.' He who will hear, let him hear; and he who will refuse to hear, let him refuse, for they are a rebellious house.

(ESV) New Testament: Galatians 3–4 Galatians 3–4 (Listen) By Faith, or by Works of the Law? 3 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified. 2 Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith? 3 Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by1 the flesh? 4 Did you suffer2 so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain? 5 Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith—6 just as Abraham “believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”? 7 Know then that it is those of faith who are the sons of Abraham. 8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify3 the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.” 9 So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith. The Righteous Shall Live by Faith 10 For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.” 11 Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.”4 12 But the law is not of faith, rather “The one who does them shall live by them.” 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”—14 so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit5 through faith. The Law and the Promise 15 To give a human example, brothers:6 even with a man-made covenant, no one annuls it or adds to it once it has been ratified. 16 Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offsprings,” referring to many, but referring to one, “And to your offspring,” who is Christ. 17 This is what I mean: the law, which came 430 years afterward, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to make the promise void. 18 For if the inheritance comes by the law, it no longer comes by promise; but God gave it to Abraham by a promise. 19 Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made, and it was put in place through angels by an intermediary. 20 Now an intermediary implies more than one, but God is one. 21 Is the law then contrary to the promises of God? Certainly not! For if a law had been given that could give life, then righteousness would indeed be by the law. 22 But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. 23 Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. 24 So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith. 25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian, 26 for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave7 nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise. Sons and Heirs 4 I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave,8 though he is the owner of everything, 2 but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father. 3 In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles9 of the world. 4 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. 6 And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God. Paul's Concern for the Galatians 8 Formerly, when you did not know God, you were enslaved to those that by nature are not gods. 9 But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more? 10 You observe days and months and seasons and years! 11 I am afraid I may have labored over you in vain. 12 Brothers,10 I entreat you, become as I am, for I also have become as you are. You did me no wrong. 13 You know it was because of a bodily ailment that I preached the gospel to you at first, 14 and though my condition was a trial to you, you did not scorn or despise me, but received me as an angel of God, as Christ Jesus. 15 What then has become of your blessedness? For I testify to you that, if possible, you would have gouged out your eyes and given them to me. 16 Have I then become your enemy by telling you the truth?11 17 They make much of you, but for no good purpose. They want to shut you out, that you may make much of them. 18 It is always good to be made much of for a good purpose, and not only when I am present with you, 19 my little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you! 20 I wish I could be present with you now and change my tone, for I am perplexed about you. Example of Hagar and Sarah 21 Tell me, you who desire to be under the law, do you not listen to the law? 22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by a slave woman and one by a free woman. 23 But the son of the slave was born according to the flesh, while the son of the free woman was born through promise. 24 Now this may be interpreted allegorically: these women are two covenants. One is from Mount Sinai, bearing children for slavery; she is Hagar. 25 Now Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia;12 she corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children. 26 But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother. 27 For it is written,   “Rejoice, O barren one who does not bear;    break forth and cry aloud, you who are not in labor!  For the children of the desolate one will be more    than those of the one who has a husband.” 28 Now you,13 brothers, like Isaac, are children of promise. 29 But just as at that time he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, so also it is now. 30 But what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the slave woman and her son, for the son of the slave woman shall not inherit with the son of the free woman.” 31 So, brothers, we are not children of the slave but of the free woman.

And Hoshea became his vassal and paid him tribute. 4 But the king of Assyria found treachery in Hoshea, for he had sent messengers to So, king of Egypt, and offered no tribute to the king of Assyria, as he had done year by year. Therefore the king of Assyria shut him up and bound him in prison. 5 Then the king of Assyria invaded all the land and came to Samaria, and for three years he besieged it. The Fall of Israel 6 In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria captured Samaria, and he carried the Israelites away to Assyria and placed them in Halah, and on the Habor, the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes. Exile Because of Idolatry 7 And this occurred because the people of Israel had sinned against the LORD their God, who had brought them up out of the land of Egypt from under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and had feared other gods 8 and walked in the customs of the nations whom the LORD drove out before the people of Israel, and in the customs that the kings of Israel had practiced. 9 And the people of Israel did secretly against the LORD their God things that were not right. They built for themselves high places in all their towns, from watchtower to fortified city. 10 They set up for themselves pillars and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree, 11 and there they made offerings on all the high places, as the nations did whom the LORD carried away before them. And they did wicked things, provoking the LORD to anger, 12 and they served idols, of which the LORD had said to them, “You shall not do this.” 13 Yet the LORD warned Israel and Judah by every prophet and every seer, saying, “Turn from your evil ways and keep my commandments and my statutes, in accordance with all the Law that I commanded your fathers, and that I sent to you by my servants the prophets.” 14 But they would not listen, but were stubborn, as their fathers had been, who did not believe in the LORD their God. 15 They despised his statutes and his covenant that he made with their fathers and the warnings that he gave them. They went after false idols and became false, and they followed the nations that were around them, concerning whom the LORD had commanded them that they should not do like them. 16 And they abandoned all the commandments of the LORD their God, and made for themselves metal images of two calves; and they made an Asherah and worshiped all the host of heaven and served Baal. 17 And they burned their sons and their daughters as offerings1 and used divination and omens and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking him to anger. 18 Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel and removed them out of his sight. None was left but the tribe of Judah only. 19 Judah also did not keep the commandments of the LORD their God, but walked in the customs that Israel had introduced. 20 And the LORD rejected all the descendants of Israel and afflicted them and gave them into the hand of plunderers, until he had cast them out of his sight. 21 When he had torn Israel from the house of David, they made Jeroboam the son of Nebat king. And Jeroboam drove Israel from following the LORD and made them commit great sin. 22 The people of Israel walked in all the sins that Jeroboam did. They did not depart from them, 23 until the LORD removed Israel out of his sight, as he had spoken by all his servants the prophets. So Israel was exiled from their own land to Assyria until this day.

Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?” I and the Father Are One 22 At that time the Feast of Dedication took place at Jerusalem. It was winter, 23 and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the colonnade of Solomon. 24 So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.” 25 Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father's name bear witness about me, 26 but you do not believe because you are not among my sheep. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me,1 is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. 30 I and the Father are one.” 31 The Jews picked up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?” 33 The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.” 34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I said, you are gods'? 35 If he called them gods to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be broken—36 do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,' because I said, ‘I am the Son of God'? 37 If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; 38 but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.” 39 Again they sought to arrest him, but he escaped from their hands. 40 He went away again across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing at first, and there he remained. 41 And many came to him. And they said, “John did no sign, but everything that John said about this man was true.” 42 And many believed in him there. Footnotes [1] 10:29 Some manuscripts What my Father has given to me (ESV)

Old Testament: Ezekiel 1–3 Ezekiel 1–3 (Listen) Ezekiel in Babylon 1 In the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the exiles by the Chebar canal, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.1 2 On the fifth day of the month (it was the fifth year of the exile of King Jehoiachin), 3 the word of the LORD came to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the Chebar canal, and the hand of the LORD was upon him there. The Glory of the Lord 4 As I looked, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, and a great cloud, with brightness around it, and fire flashing forth continually, and in the midst of the fire, as it were gleaming metal.2 5 And from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had a human likeness, 6 but each had four faces, and each of them had four wings. 7 Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the sole of a calf's foot. And they sparkled like burnished bronze. 8 Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands. And the four had their faces and their wings thus: 9 their wings touched one another. Each one of them went straight forward, without turning as they went. 10 As for the likeness of their faces, each had a human face. The four had the face of a lion on the right side, the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and the four had the face of an eagle. 11 Such were their faces. And their wings were spread out above. Each creature had two wings, each of which touched the wing of another, while two covered their bodies. 12 And each went straight forward. Wherever the spirit3 would go, they went, without turning as they went. 13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches moving to and fro among the living creatures. And the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning. 14 And the living creatures darted to and fro, like the appearance of a flash of lightning. 15 Now as I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel on the earth beside the living creatures, one for each of the four of them.4 16 As for the appearance of the wheels and their construction: their appearance was like the gleaming of beryl. And the four had the same likeness, their appearance and construction being as it were a wheel within a wheel. 17 When they went, they went in any of their four directions5 without turning as they went. 18 And their rims were tall and awesome, and the rims of all four were full of eyes all around. 19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures rose from the earth, the wheels rose. 20 Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, and the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures6 was in the wheels. 21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those rose from the earth, the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. 22 Over the heads of the living creatures there was the likeness of an expanse, shining like awe-inspiring crystal, spread out above their heads. 23 And under the expanse their wings were stretched out straight, one toward another. And each creature had two wings covering its body. 24 And when they went, I heard the sound of their wings like the sound of many waters, like the sound of the Almighty, a sound of tumult like the sound of an army. When they stood still, they let down their wings. 25 And there came a voice from above the expanse over their heads. When they stood still, they let down their wings. 26 And above the expanse over their heads there was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like sapphire;7 and seated above the likeness of a throne was a likeness with a human appearance. 27 And upward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were gleaming metal, like the appearance of fire enclosed all around. And downward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and there was brightness around him.8 28 Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness all around. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking. Ezekiel's Call 2 And he said to me, “Son of man,9 stand on your feet, and I will speak with you.” 2 And as he spoke to me, the Spirit entered into me and set me on my feet, and I heard him speaking to me. 3 And he said to me, “Son of man, I send you to the people of Israel, to nations of rebels, who have rebelled against me. They and their fathers have transgressed against me to this very day. 4 The descendants also are impudent and stubborn: I send you to them, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD.' 5 And whether they hear or refuse to hear (for they are a rebellious house) they will know that a prophet has been among them. 6 And you, son of man, be not afraid of them, nor be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns are with you and you sit on scorpions.10 Be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house. 7 And you shall speak my words to them, whether they hear or refuse to hear, for they are a rebellious house. 8 “But you, son of man, hear what I say to you. Be not rebellious like that rebellious house; open your mouth and eat what I give you.” 9 And when I looked, behold, a hand was stretched out to me, and behold, a scroll of a book was in it. 10 And he spread it before me. And it had writing on the front and on the back, and there were written on it words of lamentation and mourning and woe. 3 And he said to me, “Son of man, eat whatever you find here. Eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.” 2 So I opened my mouth, and he gave me this scroll to eat. 3 And he said to me, “Son of man, feed your belly with this scroll that I give you and fill your stomach with it.” Then I ate it, and it was in my mouth as sweet as honey. 4 And he said to me, “Son of man, go to the house of Israel and speak with my words to them. 5 For you are not sent to a people of foreign speech and a hard language, but to the house of Israel—6 not to many peoples of foreign speech and a hard language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely, if I sent you to such, they would listen to you. 7 But the house of Israel will not be willing to listen to you, for they are not willing to listen to me: because all the house of Israel have a hard forehead and a stubborn heart. 8 Behold, I have made your face as hard as their faces, and your forehead as hard as their foreheads. 9 Like emery harder than flint have I made your forehead. Fear them not, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house.” 10 Moreover, he said to me, “Son of man, all my words that I shall speak to you receive in your heart, and hear with your ears. 11 And go to the exiles, to your people, and speak to them and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD,' whether they hear or refuse to hear.” 12 Then the Spirit11 lifted me up, and I heard behind me the voice12 of a great earthquake: “Blessed be the glory of the LORD from its place!” 13 It was the sound of the wings of the living creatures as they touched one another, and the sound of the wheels beside them, and the sound of a great earthquake. 14 The Spirit lifted me up and took me away, and I went in bitterness in the heat of my spirit, the hand of the LORD being strong upon me. 15 And I came to the exiles at Tel-abib, who were dwelling by the Chebar canal, and I sat where they were dwelling.13 And I sat there overwhelmed among them seven days. A Watchman for Israel 16 And at the end of seven days, the word of the LORD came to me: 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me. 18 If I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,' and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, in order to save his life, that wicked person shall die for14 his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. 19 But if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, or from his wicked way, he shall die for his iniquity, but you will have delivered your soul. 20 Again, if a righteous person turns from his righteousness and commits injustice, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die. Because you have not warned him, he shall die for his sin, and his righteous deeds that he has done shall not be remembered, but his blood I will require at your hand. 21 But if you warn the righteous person not to sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live, because he took warning, and you will have delivered your soul.” 22 And the hand of the LORD was upon me there. And he said to me, “Arise, go out into the valley,15 and there I will speak with you.” 23 So I arose and went out into the valley, and behold, the glory of the LORD stood there, like the glory that I had seen by the Chebar canal, and I fell on my face. 24 But the Spirit entered into me and set me on my feet, and he spoke with me and said to me, “Go, shut yourself within your house. 25 And you, O son of man, behold, cords will be placed upon you, and you shall be bound with them, so that you cannot go out among the people. 26 And I will make your tongue cling to the roof of your mouth, so that you shall be mute and unable to reprove them, for they are a rebellious house. 27 But when I speak with you, I will open your mouth, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD.' He who will hear, let him hear; and he who will refuse to hear, let him refuse, for they are a rebellious house.

And he set his right foot on the sea, and his left foot on the land, 3 and called out with a loud voice, like a lion roaring. When he called out, the seven thunders sounded. 4 And when the seven thunders had sounded, I was about to write, but I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Seal up what the seven thunders have said, and do not write it down.” 5 And the angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven 6 and swore by him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and what is in it, the earth and what is in it, and the sea and what is in it, that there would be no more delay, 7 but that in the days of the trumpet call to be sounded by the seventh angel, the mystery of God would be fulfilled, just as he announced to his servants the prophets. 8 Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me again, saying, “Go, take the scroll that is open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.” 9 So I went to the angel and told him to give me the little scroll. And he said to me, “Take and eat it; it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey.” 10 And I took the little scroll from the hand of the angel and ate it. It was sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it my stomach was made bitter. 11 And I was told, “You must again prophesy about many peoples and nations and languages and kings.” (ESV) Psalm: Psalm 119:73–80 Psalm 119:73–80 (Listen) Yodh 73   Your hands have made and fashioned me;    give me understanding that I may learn your commandments.74   Those who fear you shall see me and rejoice,    because I have hoped in your word.75   I know, O LORD, that your rules are righteous,    and that in faithfulness you have afflicted me.76   Let your steadfast love comfort me    according to your promise to your servant.77   Let your mercy come to me, that I may live;    for your law is my delight.78   Let the insolent be put to shame,    because they have wronged me with falsehood;    as for me, I will meditate on your precepts.79   Let those who fear you turn to me,    that they may know your testimonies.80   May my heart be blameless in your statutes,    that I may not be put to shame!

Psalm 63:3 Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.   Vibes:  How to Experience (An Emotionally Healthy) Life with Jesus   Love   Frame It Why do I feel this way?   You have the capacity to feel love, and the capability to give love because you are created in the image of the One who is love.     Funnel It Where should I direct it?   Mark 12:30-31 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these.”   1 John 4:11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.   1 Peter 4:8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.   Colossians 3:14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.   1 Corinthians 13:1-8a If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails.   Filter It What does the gospel say to it?   John 3 Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. 2 He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.” 3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” 4 “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother's womb to be born!” 5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.  7 You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.' 8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” 9 “How can this be?” Nicodemus asked. 10 “You are Israel's teacher,” said Jesus, “and do you not understand these things? 11 Very truly I tell you, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony.  12 I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? 13 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man. 14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.” 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.  19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

Thor 031: Is Jane Wondering About Thor's Bleached Eyebrows?

Minute Thirty-One: From Post-Collision to Hospital Decision We have a great guest joining us to discuss a seemingly drunk Thor and his bleached eyebrows, the runes on the ground, and the Rom-Com nature of Thor's time on Earth. It's ‘Jovial' Jay Shepard from MCU: Location Scout! In the thirty-first minute of Kenneth Branagh's 2011 film Thor... Revisiting the crash may have been compressed, but the time with Thor isn't. In fact, we get more of it and it's better lit. And that's quite the look that Thor and Jane share. Maybe she's just staring at his eyebrows? We're ready for the #theeyebrowcut, Feige! But seriously, this look is about 14 seconds of this minute with just the two of them starting into each other's eyes, not to mention the six seconds before that when Jane's looking at the unconscious Thor. Jane's vehicle is a Pinzgauer. It doesn't have bleached eyebrows. We dig into Jane's Pinzgauer a bit. These are great Austrian high-clearance vehicles often used by the military. This is likely a 1971 and has seriously been retrofit by Jane for her scientific use. Why hasn't this inspired people to modify their own Pinzgauers to take to various ComiCons and the like? Darcy is just the best. She doesn't have bleached eyebrows. She's easily one of our favorite things in this movie. Every line she has here is comic gold. She plays the audience surrogate so perfectly. Whether it's offering CPR to the ridiculously hot guy passed out on the ground in a rune circle, or throwing her offhand comments at him about how she can tell he's hammered, Kat Dennings delivers her lines to a T. We love how the screenwriters here and throughout the MCU work to develop these side characters into characters we'd like to see continue. Darcy was such a pleasant surprise in WandaVision and we certainly hope we get more of her. Now this is a Shakespearean love story. Neither Romeo nor Juliet had bleached eyebrows. The heightened drama we have between these two people is so big and over the top that it's hard not to go back to comparing it to the Bard. And to a certain extent, it's a Rom-Com. This is a great meet cute we have here with Jane hitting Thor with her Pinzgauer. Jane even has the stereotypical quirky best friend in Darcy. Well, she's her intern, but it's the equivalent. Thor also is in the ‘fish out of water' story, something else which can very much be part of that Rom-Com. Thor passes out and the connection is lost. Jane wonders where he's from and then she notices the circle of runes on the ground. They each have their own motivation. And I bet those bleached eyebrows have their own motivation, though I wouldn't want to know what it is. Jane's science-mind goes immediately to the science and studying these runes. Erik has largely seemed confused pretty much since he joined Jane and Darcy. Could that be because he's having flashbacks to stories from his childhood? Thor likely is dazed because he's lost his powers and was just hit by a car, likely hurting him more than he's been hurt before. To that end, what's the history of people in history being cast out of their own society? Surely, it was a lot more involved. Thor's banishment happens so suddenly that it's likely he is still just beginning to process everything. From the Pinzgauer to Thor's drunken wandering and mumbling, it's a great minute to discuss with Jay. Tune in!

Morning: Ezekiel 1–3 Ezekiel 1–3 (Listen) Ezekiel in Babylon 1 In the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the exiles by the Chebar canal, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.1 2 On the fifth day of the month (it was the fifth year of the exile of King Jehoiachin), 3 the word of the LORD came to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the Chebar canal, and the hand of the LORD was upon him there. The Glory of the Lord 4 As I looked, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, and a great cloud, with brightness around it, and fire flashing forth continually, and in the midst of the fire, as it were gleaming metal.2 5 And from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had a human likeness, 6 but each had four faces, and each of them had four wings. 7 Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the sole of a calf's foot. And they sparkled like burnished bronze. 8 Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands. And the four had their faces and their wings thus: 9 their wings touched one another. Each one of them went straight forward, without turning as they went. 10 As for the likeness of their faces, each had a human face. The four had the face of a lion on the right side, the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and the four had the face of an eagle. 11 Such were their faces. And their wings were spread out above. Each creature had two wings, each of which touched the wing of another, while two covered their bodies. 12 And each went straight forward. Wherever the spirit3 would go, they went, without turning as they went. 13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches moving to and fro among the living creatures. And the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning. 14 And the living creatures darted to and fro, like the appearance of a flash of lightning. 15 Now as I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel on the earth beside the living creatures, one for each of the four of them.4 16 As for the appearance of the wheels and their construction: their appearance was like the gleaming of beryl. And the four had the same likeness, their appearance and construction being as it were a wheel within a wheel. 17 When they went, they went in any of their four directions5 without turning as they went. 18 And their rims were tall and awesome, and the rims of all four were full of eyes all around. 19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures rose from the earth, the wheels rose. 20 Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, and the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures6 was in the wheels. 21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those rose from the earth, the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. 22 Over the heads of the living creatures there was the likeness of an expanse, shining like awe-inspiring crystal, spread out above their heads. 23 And under the expanse their wings were stretched out straight, one toward another. And each creature had two wings covering its body. 24 And when they went, I heard the sound of their wings like the sound of many waters, like the sound of the Almighty, a sound of tumult like the sound of an army. When they stood still, they let down their wings. 25 And there came a voice from above the expanse over their heads. When they stood still, they let down their wings. 26 And above the expanse over their heads there was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like sapphire;7 and seated above the likeness of a throne was a likeness with a human appearance. 27 And upward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were gleaming metal, like the appearance of fire enclosed all around. And downward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and there was brightness around him.8 28 Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness all around. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking. Ezekiel's Call 2 And he said to me, “Son of man,9 stand on your feet, and I will speak with you.” 2 And as he spoke to me, the Spirit entered into me and set me on my feet, and I heard him speaking to me. 3 And he said to me, “Son of man, I send you to the people of Israel, to nations of rebels, who have rebelled against me. They and their fathers have transgressed against me to this very day. 4 The descendants also are impudent and stubborn: I send you to them, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD.' 5 And whether they hear or refuse to hear (for they are a rebellious house) they will know that a prophet has been among them. 6 And you, son of man, be not afraid of them, nor be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns are with you and you sit on scorpions.10 Be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house. 7 And you shall speak my words to them, whether they hear or refuse to hear, for they are a rebellious house. 8 “But you, son of man, hear what I say to you. Be not rebellious like that rebellious house; open your mouth and eat what I give you.” 9 And when I looked, behold, a hand was stretched out to me, and behold, a scroll of a book was in it. 10 And he spread it before me. And it had writing on the front and on the back, and there were written on it words of lamentation and mourning and woe. 3 And he said to me, “Son of man, eat whatever you find here. Eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.” 2 So I opened my mouth, and he gave me this scroll to eat. 3 And he said to me, “Son of man, feed your belly with this scroll that I give you and fill your stomach with it.” Then I ate it, and it was in my mouth as sweet as honey. 4 And he said to me, “Son of man, go to the house of Israel and speak with my words to them. 5 For you are not sent to a people of foreign speech and a hard language, but to the house of Israel—6 not to many peoples of foreign speech and a hard language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely, if I sent you to such, they would listen to you. 7 But the house of Israel will not be willing to listen to you, for they are not willing to listen to me: because all the house of Israel have a hard forehead and a stubborn heart. 8 Behold, I have made your face as hard as their faces, and your forehead as hard as their foreheads. 9 Like emery harder than flint have I made your forehead. Fear them not, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house.” 10 Moreover, he said to me, “Son of man, all my words that I shall speak to you receive in your heart, and hear with your ears. 11 And go to the exiles, to your people, and speak to them and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD,' whether they hear or refuse to hear.” 12 Then the Spirit11 lifted me up, and I heard behind me the voice12 of a great earthquake: “Blessed be the glory of the LORD from its place!” 13 It was the sound of the wings of the living creatures as they touched one another, and the sound of the wheels beside them, and the sound of a great earthquake. 14 The Spirit lifted me up and took me away, and I went in bitterness in the heat of my spirit, the hand of the LORD being strong upon me. 15 And I came to the exiles at Tel-abib, who were dwelling by the Chebar canal, and I sat where they were dwelling.13 And I sat there overwhelmed among them seven days. A Watchman for Israel 16 And at the end of seven days, the word of the LORD came to me: 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me. 18 If I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,' and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, in order to save his life, that wicked person shall die for14 his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. 19 But if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, or from his wicked way, he shall die for his iniquity, but you will have delivered your soul. 20 Again, if a righteous person turns from his righteousness and commits injustice, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die. Because you have not warned him, he shall die for his sin, and his righteous deeds that he has done shall not be remembered, but his blood I will require at your hand. 21 But if you warn the righteous person not to sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live, because he took warning, and you will have delivered your soul.” 22 And the hand of the LORD was upon me there. And he said to me, “Arise, go out into the valley,15 and there I will speak with you.” 23 So I arose and went out into the valley, and behold, the glory of the LORD stood there, like the glory that I had seen by the Chebar canal, and I fell on my face. 24 But the Spirit entered into me and set me on my feet, and he spoke with me and said to me, “Go, shut yourself within your house. 25 And you, O son of man, behold, cords will be placed upon you, and you shall be bound with them, so that you cannot go out among the people. 26 And I will make your tongue cling to the roof of your mouth, so that you shall be mute and unable to reprove them, for they are a rebellious house. 27 But when I speak with you, I will open your mouth, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD.' He who will hear, let him hear; and he who will refuse to hear, let him refuse, for they are a rebellious house.

Of these things we cannot now speak in detail. 6 These preparations having thus been made, the priests go regularly into the first section, performing their ritual duties, 7 but into the second only the high priest goes, and he but once a year, and not without taking blood, which he offers for himself and for the unintentional sins of the people. 8 By this the Holy Spirit indicates that the way into the holy places is not yet opened as long as the first section is still standing 9 (which is symbolic for the present age).4 According to this arrangement, gifts and sacrifices are offered that cannot perfect the conscience of the worshiper, 10 but deal only with food and drink and various washings, regulations for the body imposed until the time of reformation. Redemption Through the Blood of Christ 11 But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come,5 then through the greater and more perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation) 12 he entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with the ashes of a heifer, sanctify6 for the purification of the flesh, 14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our7 conscience from dead works to serve the living God. 15 Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.8 16 For where a will is involved, the death of the one who made it must be established. 17 For a will takes effect only at death, since it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive. 18 Therefore not even the first covenant was inaugurated without blood. 19 For when every commandment of the law had been declared by Moses to all the people, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, 20 saying, “This is the blood of the covenant that God commanded for you.” 21 And in the same way he sprinkled with the blood both the tent and all the vessels used in worship. 22 Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. 23 Thus it was necessary for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these rites, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ has entered, not into holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true things, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf. 25 Nor was it to offer himself repeatedly, as the high priest enters the holy places every year with blood not his own, 26 for then he would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, 28 so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.

A Canadian woman became the first patient ever clinically diagnosed with climate change. The diagnosis came after she experienced breathing problems reportedly due to poor air quality and heat waves. The patient did have asthma, but the doctor decided that was due to rising temperatures. As Biden's sweeping mandates take effect, OSHA is relying on “whistleblowers” to report workplace violations because the agency doesn't have an “army of inspectors.” Yes, they want employees to rat on their employers and fellow employees for any violations. Black Lives Matter leaders, including co-founder Hawk Newsome, threaten “riots” and “bloodshed” in the streets if Mayor-elect Eric Adams reinstates NYPD's anti-crime units. Surely the riots and bloodshed will be mostly peaceful.

Notas en inglés y español⬇️Noviembre 12: Librado de la emboscada.Salmos 58:10‭-‬11 RVA2015Salmos 59:1‭-‬17 RVA2015El día de hoy vamos a utilizar dos salmos, el 58 y el 59, porque los dos tienen un tema en común y es cómo el malo ataca sin piedad, pero a la vez, cómo Dios nos libra en esos momentos.Estos dos salmos son un clamor de David exponiendo las actitudes destructivas de los malvados que desde temprana edad dañaron su corazón para hacerlo malo y que son comparados como la serpiente o una cobra venenosa que está dispuesta a envenenar a cualquiera que estén al frente de ellos. Te animo para que leas todo el salmo completo. El salmo 59 es muy parecido; y la Biblia especifica que fue escrito cuando Saúl envió a los soldados en la noche para que secuestraran a David, sorprendiéndolo cuando él estuviera dormido y matarlo en la mañana. Prácticamente, David sufrió su primera emboscada y fue tanto su decepción al enterarse que el rey al que él tanto servía y que era su suegro había decidido eliminarlo como a un criminal.Ese odio sorprendió a David, aunque Saúl ya había amenazado de muerte muchas veces a David. El caso de David es muy complejo, sabiendo que Saúl estaba dominado por espíritus malos que lo estaban llevando a cometer varias acciones atroces como matar a la familia sacerdotal de Ahimelec como lo aprendimos en el salmo 52. Te invito a que busques este devocional y lo escuches o lo leas otra vez.Esto nos ilustra cómo personas que habían sido escogidas por Dios se dejaron llevar por el orgullo y arrogancia, por lo cual el Espíritu de Dios los abandonó y ahora están haciendo obras de maldad pero vestidos como ungidos de Dios.¿Qué vas a hacer? ¿Te vas a rebajar al nivel de ellos? ¿Vas a pagar mal por mal? Toma la posición de David. Haz todo lo posible en cuidar tu vida, tu mente y tu corazón. Reconoce que muchos abusan de su poder para manipular y destruir a su prójimo, identifica sus malas intenciones y protege tu vida, pero nunca cometas sus mismas acciones. Muchos se frustran cuando un líder es injusto y entonces toman una actitud de odio o resentimiento. Se desaniman y dejan abandonado el ministerio que estaban desarrollando o peor aun, abandonan los caminos de Dios, arrastrando con ellos a su familia, afectando sus vidas espirituales. Es doloroso ver que, por un impulso de frustración, destruyen lo lindo que Dios está haciendo con ellos. David fue pulido en la prueba. ¡Tú también pasa la prueba!Y más bien, deja la justicia en las manos del Señor, clama a Él y espera, porque verás cómo el Señor quebranta al maligno. Dedica tu vida al servicio del Señor, haciendo el bien y adorando en todo momento. ¡Canta de Su poder! como lo declara David. Mientras ellos buscaban matar a David en la mañana, ¡Dios no lo permitió, porque Dios se agradaba de la alabanza de David! Por eso Dios lo puso en un lugar alto donde Saúl no pudiera encontrarlo. Dios siempre lo libró del mal, lo protegió, y el mismo David sentía que estaba dentro de una fortaleza, seguro del poder de un ejército y de un rey malo.Soy tu amigo y hermano Eduardo Rodriguez. Que el Señor Jesucristo escuche tu oración y tu cántico declarando el poder de Dios.Te recomiendo la canción titulada ''Tu Poder'' (Creo en Ti ) de Tauren Wells y Christine D' Clario.Recuerda que vamos a estar estudiando dos salmos en un día cuando sean parecidos o cuando sean muy cortos. Bendiciones.≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈November 12: Delivered from ambush.Psalms 58:10-11:The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance; he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked, so that men will say, “Surely there is a reward for the righteous; surely He is God who judges in the earth.”Psalms 59:1-17:Deliver me from my enemies, O my God; defend me from those who rise up against me. Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloodthirsty men. For look, they lie in wait for my life; the mighty gather against me, not for my transgression nor for my sin, O Lord. They run and prepare themselves through no fault of mine. Awake to help me, and behold! You therefore, O Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to punish all the nations; do not be merciful to any wicked transgressors. SelahAt evening they return, they growl like a dog, and go all around the city. Indeed, they belch with their mouth; swords are in their lips; for they say, “Who hears?” But You, O Lord, shall laugh at them; You shall have all the nations in derision. I will wait for You, O You his Strength; for God is my defense. My God of mercy shall come to meet me; God shall let me see my desire on my enemies. Do not slay them, lest my people forget; scatter them by Your power, and bring them down, O Lord our shield. For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips, let them even be taken in their pride, and for the cursing and lying which they speak. Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be; and let them know that God rules in Jacob to the ends of the earth. SelahAnd at evening they return, they growl like a dog, and go all around the city. They wander up and down for food, and howl if they are not satisfied. But I will sing of Your power; yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning; for You have been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble. To You, O my Strength, I will sing praises; for God is my defense, my God of mercy.Today we are going to use two psalms, 58 and 59, because both have a common theme and it is how the wicked attack without mercy, but at the same time, how God frees and saves us in those moments.These two psalms are a cry of David exposing the destructive attitudes of the wicked who from an early age damaged his heart to make it evil and are compared as a snake or a poisonous cobra that is willing to poison anyone who is at the front of them. I encourage you to read the entire psalm. Psalm 59 is very similar; and the Bible specifies that it was written when Saul sent the soldiers at night to kidnap David, surprising him when he was asleep and killing him in the morning. Practically, David suffered his first ambush and was so disappointed when he found out that the king he served so much and who was his father-in-law had decided to eliminate him like a criminal.That hatred surprised David, even though Saul had already threatened David with death many times. David's case is very complex, knowing that Saul was dominated by evil spirits that were leading him to commit several heinous actions such as killing the priestly family of Ahimelech as we learned in Psalm 52. I invite you to look for this devotional and listen or read it again.This illustrates how people who had been chosen by God were carried away by pride and arrogance, for which the Spirit of God abandoned them and now they are doing evil deeds but dressed as God's anointed.What are you going to do? Are you going to lower yourself to their level? Are you going to pay bad for bad? Take David's position. Do your best to take care of your life, your mind and your heart. Recognize that many abuse their power to manipulate and destroy their neighbor, identify their bad intentions and protect your life, but never commit the same actions. Many get frustrated when a leader is unfair and then take an attitude of hatred or resentment. They get discouraged and abandon the ministry they were developing or worse, they abandon God's ways, dragging their family with them, affecting their spiritual lives. It is painful to see that, out of an impulse of frustration, they destroy the beautiful thing that God is doing with them. David was polished on the test. You too pass the test!And rather, leave justice in the hands of the Lord, cry out to Him and wait, because you will see how the Lord breaks the evil one. Dedicate your life to the service of the Lord, doing good and worshiping at all times. Sing of His power! as David declared it. As they sought to kill David in the morning, God did not allow it, because God was pleased with David's praise! That is why God put him in a high place where Saul could not find him. God always freed and saved him from evil, protected him, and David himself felt that he was inside a fortress, safe from the power of an army and an evil king.I am your friend and brother Eduardo Rodriguez. May the Lord Jesus Christ hear your prayer and your song declaring the power of God.I recommend the song titled “Tu Poder” (Creo en Ti) by Tauren Wells and Christine D 'Clario.Remember that we will be studying two psalms in one day when they are similar or when they are very short. Blessings.

Old Testament: Jeremiah 49 Jeremiah 49 (Listen) Judgment on Ammon 49 Concerning the Ammonites. Thus says the LORD:   “Has Israel no sons?    Has he no heir?  Why then has Milcom1 dispossessed Gad,    and his people settled in its cities?2   Therefore, behold, the days are coming,    declares the LORD,  when I will cause the battle cry to be heard    against Rabbah of the Ammonites;  it shall become a desolate mound,    and its villages shall be burned with fire;  then Israel shall dispossess those who dispossessed him,    says the LORD. 3   “Wail, O Heshbon, for Ai is laid waste!    Cry out, O daughters of Rabbah!  Put on sackcloth,    lament, and run to and fro among the hedges!  For Milcom shall go into exile,    with his priests and his officials.4   Why do you boast of your valleys,2    O faithless daughter,  who trusted in her treasures, saying,    ‘Who will come against me?'5   Behold, I will bring terror upon you,    declares the Lord GOD of hosts,    from all who are around you,  and you shall be driven out, every man straight before him,    with none to gather the fugitives. 6 “But afterward I will restore the fortunes of the Ammonites, declares the LORD.” Judgment on Edom 7 Concerning Edom. Thus says the LORD of hosts:   “Is wisdom no more in Teman?    Has counsel perished from the prudent?    Has their wisdom vanished?8   Flee, turn back, dwell in the depths,    O inhabitants of Dedan!  For I will bring the calamity of Esau upon him,    the time when I punish him.9   If grape gatherers came to you,    would they not leave gleanings?  If thieves came by night,    would they not destroy only enough for themselves?10   But I have stripped Esau bare;    I have uncovered his hiding places,    and he is not able to conceal himself.  His children are destroyed, and his brothers,    and his neighbors; and he is no more.11   Leave your fatherless children; I will keep them alive;    and let your widows trust in me.” 12 For thus says the LORD: “If those who did not deserve to drink the cup must drink it, will you go unpunished? You shall not go unpunished, but you must drink. 13 For I have sworn by myself, declares the LORD, that Bozrah shall become a horror, a taunt, a waste, and a curse, and all her cities shall be perpetual wastes.” 14   I have heard a message from the LORD,    and an envoy has been sent among the nations:  “Gather yourselves together and come against her,    and rise up for battle!15   For behold, I will make you small among the nations,    despised among mankind.16   The horror you inspire has deceived you,    and the pride of your heart,  you who live in the clefts of the rock,3    who hold the height of the hill.  Though you make your nest as high as the eagle's,    I will bring you down from there,      declares the LORD. 17 “Edom shall become a horror. Everyone who passes by it will be horrified and will hiss because of all its disasters. 18 As when Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring cities were overthrown, says the LORD, no man shall dwell there, no man shall sojourn in her. 19 Behold, like a lion coming up from the jungle of the Jordan against a perennial pasture, I will suddenly make him4 run away from her. And I will appoint over her whomever I choose. For who is like me? Who will summon me? What shepherd can stand before me? 20 Therefore hear the plan that the LORD has made against Edom and the purposes that he has formed against the inhabitants of Teman: Even the little ones of the flock shall be dragged away. Surely their fold shall be appalled at their fate. 21 At the sound of their fall the earth shall tremble; the sound of their cry shall be heard at the Red Sea. 22 Behold, one shall mount up and fly swiftly like an eagle and spread his wings against Bozrah, and the heart of the warriors of Edom shall be in that day like the heart of a woman in her birth pains.” Judgment on Damascus 23 Concerning Damascus:   “Hamath and Arpad are confounded,    for they have heard bad news;  they melt in fear,    they are troubled like the sea that cannot be quiet.24   Damascus has become feeble, she turned to flee,    and panic seized her;  anguish and sorrows have taken hold of her,    as of a woman in labor.25   How is the famous city not forsaken,    the city of my joy?26   Therefore her young men shall fall in her squares,    and all her soldiers shall be destroyed in that day,      declares the LORD of hosts.27   And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus,    and it shall devour the strongholds of Ben-hadad.” Judgment on Kedar and Hazor 28 Concerning Kedar and the kingdoms of Hazor that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon struck down.   Thus says the LORD:  “Rise up, advance against Kedar!    Destroy the people of the east!29   Their tents and their flocks shall be taken,    their curtains and all their goods;  their camels shall be led away from them,    and men shall cry to them: ‘Terror on every side!'30   Flee, wander far away, dwell in the depths,    O inhabitants of Hazor!      declares the LORD.  For Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon    has made a plan against you    and formed a purpose against you. 31   “Rise up, advance against a nation at ease,    that dwells securely,      declares the LORD,  that has no gates or bars,    that dwells alone.32   Their camels shall become plunder,    their herds of livestock a spoil.  I will scatter to every wind    those who cut the corners of their hair,  and I will bring their calamity    from every side of them,      declares the LORD.33   Hazor shall become a haunt of jackals,    an everlasting waste;  no man shall dwell there;    no man shall sojourn in her.” Judgment on Elam 34 The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah. 35 Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the mainstay of their might. 36 And I will bring upon Elam the four winds from the four quarters of heaven. And I will scatter them to all those winds, and there shall be no nation to which those driven out of Elam shall not come. 37 I will terrify Elam before their enemies and before those who seek their life. I will bring disaster upon them, my fierce anger, declares the LORD. I will send the sword after them, until I have consumed them, 38 and I will set my throne in Elam and destroy their king and officials, declares the LORD. 39 “But in the latter days I will restore the fortunes of Elam, declares the LORD.” Footnotes [1] 49:1 Or their king; also verse 3 [2] 49:4 Hebrew boast of your valleys, your valley flows [3] 49:16 Or of Sela [4] 49:19 Septuagint, Syriac them (ESV) Psalm: Psalm 119:25–32 Psalm 119:25–32 (Listen) Daleth 25   My soul clings to the dust;    give me life according to your word!26   When I told of my ways, you answered me;    teach me your statutes!27   Make me understand the way of your precepts,    and I will meditate on your wondrous works.28   My soul melts away for sorrow;    strengthen me according to your word!29   Put false ways far from me    and graciously teach me your law!30   I have chosen the way of faithfulness;    I set your rules before me.31   I cling to your testimonies, O LORD;    let me not be put to shame!32   I will run in the way of your commandments    when you enlarge my heart!1 Footnotes [1] 119:32 Or for you set my heart free (ESV) New Testament: 2 Corinthians 3–4 2 Corinthians 3–4 (Listen) Ministers of the New Covenant 3 Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, as some do, letters of recommendation to you, or from you? 2 You yourselves are our letter of recommendation, written on our1 hearts, to be known and read by all. 3 And you show that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.2 4 Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God. 5 Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God, 6 who has made us sufficient to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 7 Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, came with such glory that the Israelites could not gaze at Moses' face because of its glory, which was being brought to an end, 8 will not the ministry of the Spirit have even more glory? 9 For if there was glory in the ministry of condemnation, the ministry of righteousness must far exceed it in glory. 10 Indeed, in this case, what once had glory has come to have no glory at all, because of the glory that surpasses it. 11 For if what was being brought to an end came with glory, much more will what is permanent have glory. 12 Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, 13 not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. 14 But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. 15 Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. 16 But when one3 turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. 17 Now the Lord4 is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord,5 are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.6 For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. The Light of the Gospel 4 Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God,7 we do not lose heart. 2 But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice8 cunning or to tamper with God's word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone's conscience in the sight of God. 3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4 In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants9 for Jesus' sake. 6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Treasure in Jars of Clay 7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. 8 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; 10 always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. 11 For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 So death is at work in us, but life in you. 13 Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we also believe, and so we also speak, 14 knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence. 15 For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God. 16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self10 is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. 17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

(ESV) Old Testament: 1 Maccabees 1:1-28 New Testament: Revelation 19:1–10 Revelation 19:1–10 (Listen) Rejoicing in Heaven 19 After this I heard what seemed to be the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, crying out,   “Hallelujah!  Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,2     for his judgments are true and just;  for he has judged the great prostitute    who corrupted the earth with her immorality,  and has avenged on her the blood of his servants.” 3 Once more they cried out,   “Hallelujah!  The smoke from her goes up forever and ever.” 4 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who was seated on the throne, saying, “Amen. Hallelujah!” 5 And from the throne came a voice saying,   “Praise our God,    all you his servants,  you who fear him,    small and great.” The Marriage Supper of the Lamb 6 Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,   “Hallelujah!  For the Lord our God    the Almighty reigns.7   Let us rejoice and exult    and give him the glory,  for the marriage of the Lamb has come,    and his Bride has made herself ready;8   it was granted her to clothe herself    with fine linen, bright and pure”— for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints. 9 And the angel said1 to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.” 10 Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God.” For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Footnotes [1] 19:9 Greek he said (ESV) Gospel: Matthew 16:1–12 Matthew 16:1–12 (Listen) The Pharisees and Sadducees Demand Signs 16 And the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and to test him they asked him to show them a sign from heaven. 2 He answered them,1 “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.' 3 And in the morning, ‘It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.' You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times. 4 An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah.” So he left them and departed. The Leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees 5 When the disciples reached the other side, they had forgotten to bring any bread. 6 Jesus said to them, “Watch and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” 7 And they began discussing it among themselves, saying, “We brought no bread.” 8 But Jesus, aware of this, said, “O you of little faith, why are you discussing among yourselves the fact that you have no bread? 9 Do you not yet perceive? Do you not remember the five loaves for the five thousand, and how many baskets you gathered? 10 Or the seven loaves for the four thousand, and how many baskets you gathered? 11

With family: 2 Kings 24; Hebrews 6 2 Kings 24 (Listen) 24 In his days, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim became his servant for three years. Then he turned and rebelled against him. 2 And the LORD sent against him bands of the Chaldeans and bands of the Syrians and bands of the Moabites and bands of the Ammonites, and sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the LORD that he spoke by his servants the prophets. 3 Surely this came upon Judah at the command of the LORD, to remove them out of his sight, for the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he had done, 4 and also for the innocent blood that he had shed. For he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, and the LORD would not pardon. 5 Now the rest of the deeds of Jehoiakim and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 6 So Jehoiakim slept with his fathers, and Jehoiachin his son reigned in his place. 7 And the king of Egypt did not come again out of his land, for the king of Babylon had taken all that belonged to the king of Egypt from the Brook of Egypt to the river Euphrates. Jehoiachin Reigns in Judah 8 Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Nehushta the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem. 9 And he did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father had done. Jerusalem Captured 10 At that time the servants of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up to Jerusalem, and the city was besieged. 11 And Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to the city while his servants were besieging it, 12 and Jehoiachin the king of Judah gave himself up to the king of Babylon, himself and his mother and his servants and his officials and his palace officials. The king of Babylon took him prisoner in the eighth year of his reign 13 and carried off all the treasures of the house of the LORD and the treasures of the king's house, and cut in pieces all the vessels of gold in the temple of the LORD, which Solomon king of Israel had made, as the LORD had foretold. 14 He carried away all Jerusalem and all the officials and all the mighty men of valor, 10,000 captives, and all the craftsmen and the smiths. None remained, except the poorest people of the land. 15 And he carried away Jehoiachin to Babylon. The king's mother, the king's wives, his officials, and the chief men of the land he took into captivity from Jerusalem to Babylon. 16 And the king of Babylon brought captive to Babylon all the men of valor, 7,000, and the craftsmen and the metal workers, 1,000, all of them strong and fit for war. 17 And the king of Babylon made Mattaniah, Jehoiachin's uncle, king in his place, and changed his name to Zedekiah. Zedekiah Reigns in Judah 18 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Hamutal the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah. 19 And he did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that Jehoiakim had done. 20 For because of the anger of the LORD it came to the point in Jerusalem and Judah that he cast them out from his presence. And Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon. (ESV) Hebrews 6 (Listen) 6 Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, 2 and of instruction about washings,1 the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. 3 And this we will do if God permits. 4 For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt. 7 For land that has drunk the rain that often falls on it, and produces a crop useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God. 8 But if it bears thorns and thistles, it is worthless and near to being cursed, and its end is to be burned. 9 Though we speak in this way, yet in your case, beloved, we feel sure of better things—things that belong to salvation. 10 For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do. 11 And we desire each one of you to show the same earnestness to have the full assurance of hope until the end, 12 so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. The Certainty of God's Promise 13 For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself, 14 saying, “Surely I will bless you and multiply you.” 15 And thus Abraham,2 having patiently waited, obtained the promise. 16 For people swear by something greater than themselves, and in all their disputes an oath is final for confirmation. 17 So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, 18 so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. 19 We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, 20 where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.

Footnotes [1] 143:9 One Hebrew manuscript, Septuagint; most Hebrew manuscripts To you I have covered (ESV) Joel 3 (Listen) The Lord Judges the Nations 3 “For behold, in those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, 2 I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. And I will enter into judgment with them there, on behalf of my people and my heritage Israel, because they have scattered them among the nations and have divided up my land, 3 and have cast lots for my people, and have traded a boy for a prostitute, and have sold a girl for wine and have drunk it. 4 “What are you to me, O Tyre and Sidon, and all the regions of Philistia? Are you paying me back for something? If you are paying me back, I will return your payment on your own head swiftly and speedily. 5 For you have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried my rich treasures into your temples.1 6 You have sold the people of Judah and Jerusalem to the Greeks in order to remove them far from their own border. 7 Behold, I will stir them up from the place to which you have sold them, and I will return your payment on your own head. 8 I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the people of Judah, and they will sell them to the Sabeans, to a nation far away, for the LORD has spoken.” 9   Proclaim this among the nations:  Consecrate for war;2    stir up the mighty men.  Let all the men of war draw near;    let them come up.10   Beat your plowshares into swords,    and your pruning hooks into spears;    let the weak say, “I am a warrior.” 11   Hasten and come,    all you surrounding nations,    and gather yourselves there.  Bring down your warriors, O LORD.12   Let the nations stir themselves up    and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;  for there I will sit to judge    all the surrounding nations. 13   Put in the sickle,    for the harvest is ripe.  Go in, tread,    for the winepress is full.  The vats overflow,    for their evil is great. 14   Multitudes, multitudes,    in the valley of decision!  For the day of the LORD is near    in the valley of decision.15   The sun and the moon are darkened,    and the stars withdraw their shining. 16   The LORD roars from Zion,    and utters his voice from Jerusalem,    and the heavens and the earth quake.  But the LORD is a refuge to his people,    a stronghold to the people of Israel. The Glorious Future of Judah 17   “So you shall know that I am the LORD your God,    who dwells in Zion, my holy mountain.  And Jerusalem shall be holy,    and strangers shall never again pass through it. 18   “And in that day  the mountains shall drip sweet wine,    and the hills shall flow with milk,  and all the streambeds of Judah    shall flow with water;  and a fountain shall come forth from the house of the LORD    and water the Valley of Shittim. 19   “Egypt shall become a desolation    and Edom a desolate wilderness,  for the violence done to the people of Judah,    because they have shed innocent blood in their land.20   But Judah shall be inhabited forever,    and Jerusalem to all generations.21   I will avenge their blood,    blood I have not avenged,3    for the LORD dwells in Zion.” Footnotes [1] 3:5 Or palaces [2] 3:9 Or Consecrate a war [3] 3:21 Or I will acquit their bloodguilt that I have not acquitted (ESV)

Old Testament: Jeremiah 49 Jeremiah 49 (Listen) Judgment on Ammon 49 Concerning the Ammonites. Thus says the LORD:   “Has Israel no sons?    Has he no heir?  Why then has Milcom1 dispossessed Gad,    and his people settled in its cities?2   Therefore, behold, the days are coming,    declares the LORD,  when I will cause the battle cry to be heard    against Rabbah of the Ammonites;  it shall become a desolate mound,    and its villages shall be burned with fire;  then Israel shall dispossess those who dispossessed him,    says the LORD. 3   “Wail, O Heshbon, for Ai is laid waste!    Cry out, O daughters of Rabbah!  Put on sackcloth,    lament, and run to and fro among the hedges!  For Milcom shall go into exile,    with his priests and his officials.4   Why do you boast of your valleys,2    O faithless daughter,  who trusted in her treasures, saying,    ‘Who will come against me?'5   Behold, I will bring terror upon you,    declares the Lord GOD of hosts,    from all who are around you,  and you shall be driven out, every man straight before him,    with none to gather the fugitives. 6 “But afterward I will restore the fortunes of the Ammonites, declares the LORD.” Judgment on Edom 7 Concerning Edom. Thus says the LORD of hosts:   “Is wisdom no more in Teman?    Has counsel perished from the prudent?    Has their wisdom vanished?8   Flee, turn back, dwell in the depths,    O inhabitants of Dedan!  For I will bring the calamity of Esau upon him,    the time when I punish him.9   If grape gatherers came to you,    would they not leave gleanings?  If thieves came by night,    would they not destroy only enough for themselves?10   But I have stripped Esau bare;    I have uncovered his hiding places,    and he is not able to conceal himself.  His children are destroyed, and his brothers,    and his neighbors; and he is no more.11   Leave your fatherless children; I will keep them alive;    and let your widows trust in me.” 12 For thus says the LORD: “If those who did not deserve to drink the cup must drink it, will you go unpunished? You shall not go unpunished, but you must drink. 13 For I have sworn by myself, declares the LORD, that Bozrah shall become a horror, a taunt, a waste, and a curse, and all her cities shall be perpetual wastes.” 14   I have heard a message from the LORD,    and an envoy has been sent among the nations:  “Gather yourselves together and come against her,    and rise up for battle!15   For behold, I will make you small among the nations,    despised among mankind.16   The horror you inspire has deceived you,    and the pride of your heart,  you who live in the clefts of the rock,3    who hold the height of the hill.  Though you make your nest as high as the eagle's,    I will bring you down from there,      declares the LORD. 17 “Edom shall become a horror. Everyone who passes by it will be horrified and will hiss because of all its disasters. 18 As when Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring cities were overthrown, says the LORD, no man shall dwell there, no man shall sojourn in her. 19 Behold, like a lion coming up from the jungle of the Jordan against a perennial pasture, I will suddenly make him4 run away from her. And I will appoint over her whomever I choose. For who is like me? Who will summon me? What shepherd can stand before me? 20 Therefore hear the plan that the LORD has made against Edom and the purposes that he has formed against the inhabitants of Teman: Even the little ones of the flock shall be dragged away. Surely their fold shall be appalled at their fate. 21 At the sound of their fall the earth shall tremble; the sound of their cry shall be heard at the Red Sea. 22 Behold, one shall mount up and fly swiftly like an eagle and spread his wings against Bozrah, and the heart of the warriors of Edom shall be in that day like the heart of a woman in her birth pains.” Judgment on Damascus 23 Concerning Damascus:   “Hamath and Arpad are confounded,    for they have heard bad news;  they melt in fear,    they are troubled like the sea that cannot be quiet.24   Damascus has become feeble, she turned to flee,    and panic seized her;  anguish and sorrows have taken hold of her,    as of a woman in labor.25   How is the famous city not forsaken,    the city of my joy?26   Therefore her young men shall fall in her squares,    and all her soldiers shall be destroyed in that day,      declares the LORD of hosts.27   And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus,    and it shall devour the strongholds of Ben-hadad.” Judgment on Kedar and Hazor 28 Concerning Kedar and the kingdoms of Hazor that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon struck down.   Thus says the LORD:  “Rise up, advance against Kedar!    Destroy the people of the east!29   Their tents and their flocks shall be taken,    their curtains and all their goods;  their camels shall be led away from them,    and men shall cry to them: ‘Terror on every side!'30   Flee, wander far away, dwell in the depths,    O inhabitants of Hazor!      declares the LORD.  For Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon    has made a plan against you    and formed a purpose against you. 31   “Rise up, advance against a nation at ease,    that dwells securely,      declares the LORD,  that has no gates or bars,    that dwells alone.32   Their camels shall become plunder,    their herds of livestock a spoil.  I will scatter to every wind    those who cut the corners of their hair,  and I will bring their calamity    from every side of them,      declares the LORD.33   Hazor shall become a haunt of jackals,    an everlasting waste;  no man shall dwell there;    no man shall sojourn in her.” Judgment on Elam 34 The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah. 35 Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the mainstay of their might. 36 And I will bring upon Elam the four winds from the four quarters of heaven.

The Kyle Rittenhouse trial continues, with Kyle himself taking the stand. In tearful testimony, the teenager recounted the horrific night he had in Kenosha. Will this be enough to sway the jury, or will jurors decide he's guilty? We discuss the latest updates in the case. A Canadian woman became the first patient ever clinically diagnosed with climate change. The diagnosis came after she experienced breathing problems reportedly due to poor air quality and heat waves. Will this become a norm in the medical field, or is this just one doctor trying to make a point? YouTube announced there will no longer be a public dislike button. Surely this has nothing to do with the fact that many mainstream outlets were getting their videos down-voted.

You take a week off and all hell breaks loose in the Premier League.Left, right and centre, managers have lost their jobs with Norwich and Aston Villa following the lead of Newcastle and Spurs - the managerial merry-go-round always spins faster just before an international break. We mull over the comings and goings and what might happen next at the clubs affected.A different type of manager has also come under the spotlight this week - social media managers. Following a cock-up by Bruno Fernandes' team and a reveal-all interview by Manchester United's CEO of Media, we talk football's obsession with fan engagement and the weird path it's leading us all down.On the pitch, West Ham are looking pretty tasty. Up to third with a win over Liverpool they remind us of 2016 vintage Leicester. Surely they can't challenge for the title? Or maybe they can? Elsewhere in football, we cast an eye over some of the international break's least fascinating matches, weigh up the job facing Xavi, laugh at Jose Mourinho and question who has a hand steady enough to tackle Daniel Sturridge's hairline.After the break, we catch up with the racism storm at Yorkshire Cricket, shake our head in disbelief at Aaron Rodgers' Covid calamity and discuss who we'd most like to smack in the face.

What's Good Dimah Fam! In this episode, Adise and Nila follow up with the Ace Family and their ongoing struggles with the media. The Ace Family allegedly lost their home at an auction recently despite claiming the media narrative was fake news. At a nearby park, their home was put up for auction with a hefty price tag. Surely, no one placed a bid considering it was nearing ten million dollars. By default the home would return to the "hard money lenders" who supplied them with millions of dollars worth of loans to purchase and renovate their custom Ace Family home. We feel for the Ace Family, it sucks having your private life and finances be broadcasted to the world, but hopefully in time they will get through it (for their sake). Some say this is their karma for the fraud they were committing in the past with Social Gloves, 1212 Gateway, The Millionaire Course among other things. Could this be why they're losing their home, getting sued for hundreds of millions of dollars from multiple entities and even the city of Los Angeles, and the media slander? We are hoping everything gets resolved, everyone gets paid what they are owed, everyone is happy and the Ace Family bounces back in a more humane way LOL. We're pulling for them despite their past because they're human and everyone deserves a second chance. We love you so much TDP Family! Thanks for listening!

Luke 19–20 Luke 19–20 (Listen) Jesus and Zacchaeus 19 He entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector and was rich. 3 And he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was small in stature. 4 So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for I must stay at your house today.” 6 So he hurried and came down and received him joyfully. 7 And when they saw it, they all grumbled, “He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.” 8 And Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor. And if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I restore it fourfold.” 9 And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, since he also is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” The Parable of the Ten Minas 11 As they heard these things, he proceeded to tell a parable, because he was near to Jerusalem, and because they supposed that the kingdom of God was to appear immediately. 12 He said therefore, “A nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and then return. 13 Calling ten of his servants,1 he gave them ten minas,2 and said to them, ‘Engage in business until I come.' 14 But his citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We do not want this man to reign over us.' 15 When he returned, having received the kingdom, he ordered these servants to whom he had given the money to be called to him, that he might know what they had gained by doing business. 16 The first came before him, saying, ‘Lord, your mina has made ten minas more.' 17 And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant!3 Because you have been faithful in a very little, you shall have authority over ten cities.' 18 And the second came, saying, ‘Lord, your mina has made five minas.' 19 And he said to him, ‘And you are to be over five cities.' 20 Then another came, saying, ‘Lord, here is your mina, which I kept laid away in a handkerchief; 21 for I was afraid of you, because you are a severe man. You take what you did not deposit, and reap what you did not sow.' 22 He said to him, ‘I will condemn you with your own words, you wicked servant! You knew that I was a severe man, taking what I did not deposit and reaping what I did not sow? 23 Why then did you not put my money in the bank, and at my coming I might have collected it with interest?' 24 And he said to those who stood by, ‘Take the mina from him, and give it to the one who has the ten minas.' 25 And they said to him, ‘Lord, he has ten minas!' 26 ‘I tell you that to everyone who has, more will be given, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 27 But as for these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slaughter them before me.'” The Triumphal Entry 28 And when he had said these things, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 29 When he drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount that is called Olivet, he sent two of the disciples, 30 saying, “Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?' you shall say this: ‘The Lord has need of it.'” 32 So those who were sent went away and found it just as he had told them. 33 And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 And they said, “The Lord has need of it.” 35 And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 36 And as he rode along, they spread their cloaks on the road. 37 As he was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, 38 saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” 39 And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” 40 He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.” Jesus Weeps over Jerusalem 41 And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, 42 saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side 44 and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.” Jesus Cleanses the Temple 45 And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold, 46 saying to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be a house of prayer,' but you have made it a den of robbers.” 47 And he was teaching daily in the temple. The chief priests and the scribes and the principal men of the people were seeking to destroy him, 48 but they did not find anything they could do, for all the people were hanging on his words. The Authority of Jesus Challenged 20 One day, as Jesus4 was teaching the people in the temple and preaching the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes with the elders came up 2 and said to him, “Tell us by what authority you do these things, or who it is that gave you this authority.” 3 He answered them, “I also will ask you a question. Now tell me, 4 was the baptism of John from heaven or from man?” 5 And they discussed it with one another, saying, “If we say, ‘From heaven,' he will say, ‘Why did you not believe him?' 6 But if we say, ‘From man,' all the people will stone us to death, for they are convinced that John was a prophet.” 7 So they answered that they did not know where it came from. 8 And Jesus said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.” The Parable of the Wicked Tenants 9 And he began to tell the people this parable: “A man planted a vineyard and let it out to tenants and went into another country for a long while. 10 When the time came, he sent a servant5 to the tenants, so that they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty-handed. 11 And he sent another servant. But they also beat and treated him shamefully, and sent him away empty-handed. 12 And he sent yet a third. This one also they wounded and cast out. 13 Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my beloved son; perhaps they will respect him.' 14 But when the tenants saw him, they said to themselves, ‘This is the heir. Let us kill him, so that the inheritance may be ours.' 15 And they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? 16 He will come and destroy those tenants and give the vineyard to others.” When they heard this, they said, “Surely not!” 17 But he looked directly at them and said, “What then is this that is written:   “‘The stone that the builders rejected    has become the cornerstone'?6 18 Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, and when it falls on anyone, it will crush him.” Paying Taxes to Caesar 19 The scribes and the chief priests sought to lay hands on him at that very hour, for they perceived that he had told this parable against them, but they feared the people. 20 So they watched him and sent spies, who pretended to be sincere, that they might catch him in something he said, so as to deliver him up to the authority and jurisdiction of the governor. 21 So they asked him, “Teacher, we know that you speak and teach rightly, and show no partiality,7 but truly teach the way of God. 22 Is it lawful for us to give tribute to Caesar, or not?” 23 But he perceived their craftiness, and said to them, 24 “Show me a denarius.8 Whose likeness and inscription does it have?” They said, “Caesar's.” 25 He said to them, “Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's.” 26 And they were not able in the presence of the people to catch him in what he said, but marveling at his answer they became silent. Sadducees Ask About the Resurrection 27 There came to him some Sadducees, those who deny that there is a resurrection, 28 and they asked him a question, saying, “Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother dies, having a wife but no children, the man9 must take the widow and raise up offspring for his brother. 29 Now there were seven brothers. The first took a wife, and died without children. 30 And the second 31 and the third took her, and likewise all seven left no children and died. 32 Afterward the woman also died. 33 In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife will the woman be? For the seven had her as wife.” 34 And Jesus said to them, “The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, 35 but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage, 36 for they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons10 of the resurrection. 37 But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed, in the passage about the bush, where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. 38 Now he is not God of the dead, but of the living, for all live to him.” 39 Then some of the scribes answered, “Teacher, you have spoken well.” 40 For they no longer dared to ask him any question. Whose Son Is the Christ? 41 But he said to them, “How can they say that the Christ is David's son? 42 For David himself says in the Book of Psalms,   “‘The Lord said to my Lord,  “Sit at my right hand,43     until I make your enemies your footstool.”' 44 David thus calls him Lord, so how is he his son?” Beware of the Scribes 45 And in the hearing of all the people he said to his disciples, 46 “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love greetings in the marketplaces and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts, 47 who devour widows' houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation.” Footnotes [1] 19:13 Or bondservants; also verse 15 [2] 19:13 A mina was about three months' wages for a laborer [3] 19:17 Or bondservant; also verse 22 [4] 20:1 Greek he [5] 20:10 Or bondservant; also verse 11 [6] 20:17 Greek the head of the corner [7] 20:21 Greek and do not receive a face [8] 20:24 A denarius was a day's wage for a laborer [9] 20:28 Greek his brother [10] 20:36 Greek huioi; see Preface (ESV)

A brothel in Austria is offering a free sex "session" to patrons who get the COVID vaccine on-site. This might be the most effective vaccine campaign yet. The Queensland government is instituting medical apartheid starting December 17, when unvaccinated Queenslanders can only enter hospitals "if for the purposes of end of life, childbirth, or emergency situation." Apparently, the medical system is only for those willing to abide by government mandates. The Pfizer CEO recently said people who “spread misinformation” on COVID vaccines are criminals. While he said they weren't necessarily bad people, the CEO did suggest that they are criminals who have cost millions of lives. Surely there's no conflict of interest for the Pfizer CEO to be suggesting anyone not using his product is a criminal. The judge in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial says a person was caught filming jurors at their bus pick-up but that the footage was deleted and new procedures are in place. Will this have any impact on the verdict? Only time will tell, but it's a troubling sign for the future of high-profile trials.

With family: 2 Kings 22; Hebrews 4 2 Kings 22 (Listen) Josiah Reigns in Judah 22 Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned thirty-one years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jedidah the daughter of Adaiah of Bozkath. 2 And he did what was right in the eyes of the LORD and walked in all the way of David his father, and he did not turn aside to the right or to the left. Josiah Repairs the Temple 3 In the eighteenth year of King Josiah, the king sent Shaphan the son of Azaliah, son of Meshullam, the secretary, to the house of the LORD, saying, 4 “Go up to Hilkiah the high priest, that he may count the money that has been brought into the house of the LORD, which the keepers of the threshold have collected from the people. 5 And let it be given into the hand of the workmen who have the oversight of the house of the LORD, and let them give it to the workmen who are at the house of the LORD, repairing the house 6 (that is, to the carpenters, and to the builders, and to the masons), and let them use it for buying timber and quarried stone to repair the house. 7 But no accounting shall be asked from them for the money that is delivered into their hand, for they deal honestly.” Hilkiah Finds the Book of the Law 8 And Hilkiah the high priest said to Shaphan the secretary, “I have found the Book of the Law in the house of the LORD.” And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it. 9 And Shaphan the secretary came to the king, and reported to the king, “Your servants have emptied out the money that was found in the house and have delivered it into the hand of the workmen who have the oversight of the house of the LORD.” 10 Then Shaphan the secretary told the king, “Hilkiah the priest has given me a book.” And Shaphan read it before the king. 11 When the king heard the words of the Book of the Law, he tore his clothes. 12 And the king commanded Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam the son of Shaphan, and Achbor the son of Micaiah, and Shaphan the secretary, and Asaiah the king's servant, saying, 13 “Go, inquire of the LORD for me, and for the people, and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that has been found. For great is the wrath of the LORD that is kindled against us, because our fathers have not obeyed the words of this book, to do according to all that is written concerning us.” 14 So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asaiah went to Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe (now she lived in Jerusalem in the Second Quarter), and they talked with her. 15 And she said to them, “Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel: ‘Tell the man who sent you to me, 16 Thus says the LORD, Behold, I will bring disaster upon this place and upon its inhabitants, all the words of the book that the king of Judah has read. 17 Because they have forsaken me and have made offerings to other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the work of their hands, therefore my wrath will be kindled against this place, and it will not be quenched. 18 But to the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of the LORD, thus shall you say to him, Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel: Regarding the words that you have heard, 19 because your heart was penitent, and you humbled yourself before the LORD, when you heard how I spoke against this place and against its inhabitants, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and you have torn your clothes and wept before me, I also have heard you, declares the LORD. 20 Therefore, behold, I will gather you to your fathers, and you shall be gathered to your grave in peace, and your eyes shall not see all the disaster that I will bring upon this place.'” And they brought back word to the king. (ESV) Hebrews 4 (Listen) 4 Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us fear lest any of you should seem to have failed to reach it. 2 For good news came to us just as to them, but the message they heard did not benefit them, because they were not united by faith with those who listened.1 3 For we who have believed enter that rest, as he has said,   “As I swore in my wrath,  ‘They shall not enter my rest,'” although his works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4 For he has somewhere spoken of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all his works.” 5 And again in this passage he said,   “They shall not enter my rest.” 6 Since therefore it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly received the good news failed to enter because of disobedience, 7 again he appoints a certain day, “Today,” saying through David so long afterward, in the words already quoted,   “Today, if you hear his voice,  do not harden your hearts.” 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, God2 would not have spoken of another day later on. 9 So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, 10 for whoever has entered God's rest has also rested from his works as God did from his. 11 Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account. Jesus the Great High Priest 14 Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

(ESV) Joel 1 (Listen) 1 The word of the LORD that came to Joel, the son of Pethuel: An Invasion of Locusts 2   Hear this, you elders;    give ear, all inhabitants of the land!  Has such a thing happened in your days,    or in the days of your fathers?3   Tell your children of it,    and let your children tell their children,    and their children to another generation. 4   What the cutting locust left,    the swarming locust has eaten.  What the swarming locust left,    the hopping locust has eaten,  and what the hopping locust left,    the destroying locust has eaten. 5   Awake, you drunkards, and weep,    and wail, all you drinkers of wine,  because of the sweet wine,    for it is cut off from your mouth.6   For a nation has come up against my land,    powerful and beyond number;  its teeth are lions' teeth,    and it has the fangs of a lioness.7   It has laid waste my vine    and splintered my fig tree;  it has stripped off their bark and thrown it down;    their branches are made white. 8   Lament like a virgin1 wearing sackcloth    for the bridegroom of her youth.9   The grain offering and the drink offering are cut off    from the house of the LORD.  The priests mourn,    the ministers of the LORD.10   The fields are destroyed,    the ground mourns,  because the grain is destroyed,    the wine dries up,    the oil languishes. 11   Be ashamed,2 O tillers of the soil;    wail, O vinedressers,  for the wheat and the barley,    because the harvest of the field has perished.12   The vine dries up;    the fig tree languishes.  Pomegranate, palm, and apple,    all the trees of the field are dried up,  and gladness dries up    from the children of man. A Call to Repentance 13   Put on sackcloth and lament, O priests;    wail, O ministers of the altar.  Go in, pass the night in sackcloth,    O ministers of my God!  Because grain offering and drink offering    are withheld from the house of your God. 14   Consecrate a fast;    call a solemn assembly.  Gather the elders    and all the inhabitants of the land  to the house of the LORD your God,    and cry out to the LORD. 15   Alas for the day!  For the day of the LORD is near,    and as destruction from the Almighty3 it comes.16   Is not the food cut off    before our eyes,  joy and gladness    from the house of our God? 17   The seed shrivels under the clods;4    the storehouses are desolate;  the granaries are torn down    because the grain has dried up.18   How the beasts groan!    The herds of cattle are perplexed  because there is no pasture for them;    even the flocks of sheep suffer.5 19   To you, O LORD, I call.  For fire has devoured    the pastures of the wilderness,  and flame has burned    all the trees of the field.20   Even the beasts of the field pant for you    because the water brooks are dried up,  and fire has devoured    the pastures of the wilderness.

Morning: Jeremiah 49–50 Jeremiah 49–50 (Listen) Judgment on Ammon 49 Concerning the Ammonites. Thus says the LORD:   “Has Israel no sons?    Has he no heir?  Why then has Milcom1 dispossessed Gad,    and his people settled in its cities?2   Therefore, behold, the days are coming,    declares the LORD,  when I will cause the battle cry to be heard    against Rabbah of the Ammonites;  it shall become a desolate mound,    and its villages shall be burned with fire;  then Israel shall dispossess those who dispossessed him,    says the LORD. 3   “Wail, O Heshbon, for Ai is laid waste!    Cry out, O daughters of Rabbah!  Put on sackcloth,    lament, and run to and fro among the hedges!  For Milcom shall go into exile,    with his priests and his officials.4   Why do you boast of your valleys,2    O faithless daughter,  who trusted in her treasures, saying,    ‘Who will come against me?'5   Behold, I will bring terror upon you,    declares the Lord GOD of hosts,    from all who are around you,  and you shall be driven out, every man straight before him,    with none to gather the fugitives. 6 “But afterward I will restore the fortunes of the Ammonites, declares the LORD.” Judgment on Edom 7 Concerning Edom. Thus says the LORD of hosts:   “Is wisdom no more in Teman?    Has counsel perished from the prudent?    Has their wisdom vanished?8   Flee, turn back, dwell in the depths,    O inhabitants of Dedan!  For I will bring the calamity of Esau upon him,    the time when I punish him.9   If grape gatherers came to you,    would they not leave gleanings?  If thieves came by night,    would they not destroy only enough for themselves?10   But I have stripped Esau bare;    I have uncovered his hiding places,    and he is not able to conceal himself.  His children are destroyed, and his brothers,    and his neighbors; and he is no more.11   Leave your fatherless children; I will keep them alive;    and let your widows trust in me.” 12 For thus says the LORD: “If those who did not deserve to drink the cup must drink it, will you go unpunished? You shall not go unpunished, but you must drink. 13 For I have sworn by myself, declares the LORD, that Bozrah shall become a horror, a taunt, a waste, and a curse, and all her cities shall be perpetual wastes.” 14   I have heard a message from the LORD,    and an envoy has been sent among the nations:  “Gather yourselves together and come against her,    and rise up for battle!15   For behold, I will make you small among the nations,    despised among mankind.16   The horror you inspire has deceived you,    and the pride of your heart,  you who live in the clefts of the rock,3    who hold the height of the hill.  Though you make your nest as high as the eagle's,    I will bring you down from there,      declares the LORD. 17 “Edom shall become a horror. Everyone who passes by it will be horrified and will hiss because of all its disasters. 18 As when Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring cities were overthrown, says the LORD, no man shall dwell there, no man shall sojourn in her. 19 Behold, like a lion coming up from the jungle of the Jordan against a perennial pasture, I will suddenly make him4 run away from her. And I will appoint over her whomever I choose. For who is like me? Who will summon me? What shepherd can stand before me? 20 Therefore hear the plan that the LORD has made against Edom and the purposes that he has formed against the inhabitants of Teman: Even the little ones of the flock shall be dragged away. Surely their fold shall be appalled at their fate. 21 At the sound of their fall the earth shall tremble; the sound of their cry shall be heard at the Red Sea. 22 Behold, one shall mount up and fly swiftly like an eagle and spread his wings against Bozrah, and the heart of the warriors of Edom shall be in that day like the heart of a woman in her birth pains.” Judgment on Damascus 23 Concerning Damascus:   “Hamath and Arpad are confounded,    for they have heard bad news;  they melt in fear,    they are troubled like the sea that cannot be quiet.24   Damascus has become feeble, she turned to flee,    and panic seized her;  anguish and sorrows have taken hold of her,    as of a woman in labor.25   How is the famous city not forsaken,    the city of my joy?26   Therefore her young men shall fall in her squares,    and all her soldiers shall be destroyed in that day,      declares the LORD of hosts.27   And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus,    and it shall devour the strongholds of Ben-hadad.” Judgment on Kedar and Hazor 28 Concerning Kedar and the kingdoms of Hazor that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon struck down.   Thus says the LORD:  “Rise up, advance against Kedar!    Destroy the people of the east!29   Their tents and their flocks shall be taken,    their curtains and all their goods;  their camels shall be led away from them,    and men shall cry to them: ‘Terror on every side!'30   Flee, wander far away, dwell in the depths,    O inhabitants of Hazor!      declares the LORD.  For Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon    has made a plan against you    and formed a purpose against you. 31   “Rise up, advance against a nation at ease,    that dwells securely,      declares the LORD,  that has no gates or bars,    that dwells alone.32   Their camels shall become plunder,    their herds of livestock a spoil.  I will scatter to every wind    those who cut the corners of their hair,  and I will bring their calamity    from every side of them,      declares the LORD.33   Hazor shall become a haunt of jackals,    an everlasting waste;  no man shall dwell there;    no man shall sojourn in her.” Judgment on Elam 34 The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah. 35 Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the mainstay of their might. 36 And I will bring upon Elam the four winds from the four quarters of heaven. And I will scatter them to all those winds, and there shall be no nation to which those driven out of Elam shall not come. 37 I will terrify Elam before their enemies and before those who seek their life. I will bring disaster upon them, my fierce anger, declares the LORD. I will send the sword after them, until I have consumed them, 38 and I will set my throne in Elam and destroy their king and officials, declares the LORD. 39 “But in the latter days I will restore the fortunes of Elam, declares the LORD.” Judgment on Babylon 50 The word that the LORD spoke concerning Babylon, concerning the land of the Chaldeans, by Jeremiah the prophet: 2   “Declare among the nations and proclaim,    set up a banner and proclaim,    conceal it not, and say:  ‘Babylon is taken,    Bel is put to shame,    Merodach is dismayed.  Her images are put to shame,    her idols are dismayed.' 3 “For out of the north a nation has come up against her, which shall make her land a desolation, and none shall dwell in it; both man and beast shall flee away. 4 “In those days and in that time, declares the LORD, the people of Israel and the people of Judah shall come together, weeping as they come, and they shall seek the LORD their God. 5 They shall ask the way to Zion, with faces turned toward it, saying, ‘Come, let us join ourselves to the LORD in an everlasting covenant that will never be forgotten.' 6 “My people have been lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray, turning them away on the mountains. From mountain to hill they have gone. They have forgotten their fold. 7 All who found them have devoured them, and their enemies have said, ‘We are not guilty, for they have sinned against the LORD, their habitation of righteousness, the LORD, the hope of their fathers.' 8 “Flee from the midst of Babylon, and go out of the land of the Chaldeans, and be as male goats before the flock. 9 For behold, I am stirring up and bringing against Babylon a gathering of great nations, from the north country. And they shall array themselves against her. From there she shall be taken. Their arrows are like a skilled warrior who does not return empty-handed. 10 Chaldea shall be plundered; all who plunder her shall be sated, declares the LORD. 11   “Though you rejoice, though you exult,    O plunderers of my heritage,  though you frolic like a heifer in the pasture,    and neigh like stallions,12   your mother shall be utterly shamed,    and she who bore you shall be disgraced.  Behold, she shall be the last of the nations,    a wilderness, a dry land, and a desert.13   Because of the wrath of the LORD she shall not be inhabited    but shall be an utter desolation;  everyone who passes by Babylon shall be appalled,    and hiss because of all her wounds.14   Set yourselves in array against Babylon all around,    all you who bend the bow;  shoot at her, spare no arrows,    for she has sinned against the LORD.15   Raise a shout against her all around;    she has surrendered;  her bulwarks have fallen;    her walls are thrown down.  For this is the vengeance of the LORD:    take vengeance on her;    do to her as she has done.16   Cut off from Babylon the sower,    and the one who handles the sickle in time of harvest;  because of the sword of the oppressor,    every one shall turn to his own people,    and every one shall flee to his own land. 17 “Israel is a hunted sheep driven away by lions. First the king of Assyria devoured him, and now at last Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon has gnawed his bones. 18 Therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Behold, I am bringing punishment on the king of Babylon and his land, as I punished the king of Assyria. 19 I will restore Israel to his pasture, and he shall feed on Carmel and in Bashan, and his desire shall be satisfied on the hills of Ephraim and in Gilead. 20 In those days and in that time, declares the LORD, iniquity shall be sought in Israel, and there shall be none, and sin in Judah, and none shall be found, for I will pardon those whom I leave as a remnant. 21   “Go up against the land of Merathaim,5    and against the inhabitants of Pekod.6  Kill, and devote them to destruction,7      declares the LORD,    and do all that I have commanded you.22   The noise of battle is in the land,    and great destruction!23   How the hammer of the whole earth    is cut down and broken!  How Babylon has become    a horror among the nations!24   I set a snare for you and you were taken, O Babylon,    and you did not know it;  you were found and caught,    because you opposed the LORD.25   The LORD has opened his armory    and brought out the weapons of his wrath,  for the Lord GOD of hosts has a work to do    in the land of the Chaldeans.26   Come against her from every quarter;    open her granaries;  pile her up like heaps of grain, and devote her to destruction;    let nothing be left of her.27   Kill all her bulls;    let them go down to the slaughter.  Woe to them, for their day has come,    the time of their punishment. 28 “A voice! They flee and escape from the land of Babylon, to declare in Zion the vengeance of the LORD our God, vengeance for his temple. 29 “Summon archers against Babylon, all those who bend the bow. Encamp around her; let no one escape. Repay her according to her deeds; do to her according to all that she has done. For she has proudly defied the LORD, the Holy One of Israel. 30 Therefore her young men shall fall in her squares, and all her soldiers shall be destroyed on that day, declares the LORD. 31   “Behold, I am against you, O proud one,    declares the Lord GOD of hosts,  for your day has come,    the time when I will punish you.32   The proud one shall stumble and fall,    with none to raise him up,  and I will kindle a fire in his cities,    and it will devour all that is around him. 33 “Thus says the LORD of hosts: The people of Israel are oppressed, and the people of Judah with them. All who took them captive have held them fast; they refuse to let them go. 34 Their Redeemer is strong; the LORD of hosts is his name. He will surely plead their cause, that he may give rest to the earth, but unrest to the inhabitants of Babylon. 35   “A sword against the Chaldeans, declares the LORD,    and against the inhabitants of Babylon,    and against her officials and her wise men!36   A sword against the diviners,    that they may become fools!  A sword against her warriors,    that they may be destroyed!37   A sword against her horses and against her chariots,    and against all the foreign troops in her midst,    that they may become women!  A sword against all her treasures,    that they may be plundered!38   A drought against her waters,    that they may be dried up!  For it is a land of images,    and they are mad over idols. 39 “Therefore wild beasts shall dwell with hyenas in Babylon,8 and ostriches shall dwell in her. She shall never again have people, nor be inhabited for all generations. 40 As when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring cities, declares the LORD, so no man shall dwell there, and no son of man shall sojourn in her. 41   “Behold, a people comes from the north;    a mighty nation and many kings    are stirring from the farthest parts of the earth.42   They lay hold of bow and spear;    they are cruel and have no mercy.  The sound of them is like the roaring of the sea;    they ride on horses,  arrayed as a man for battle    against you, O daughter of Babylon! 43   “The king of Babylon heard the report of them,    and his hands fell helpless;  anguish seized him,    pain as of a woman in labor. 44 “Behold, like a lion coming up from the thicket of the Jordan against a perennial pasture, I will suddenly make them run away from her, and I will appoint over her whomever I choose. For who is like me? Who will summon me? What shepherd can stand before me? 45 Therefore hear the plan that the LORD has made against Babylon, and the purposes that he has formed against the land of the Chaldeans: Surely the little ones of their flock shall be dragged away; surely their fold shall be appalled at their fate. 46 At the sound of the capture of Babylon the earth shall tremble, and her cry shall be heard among the nations.” Footnotes [1] 49:1 Or their king; also verse 3 [2] 49:4 Hebrew boast of your valleys, your valley flows [3] 49:16 Or of Sela [4] 49:19 Septuagint, Syriac them [5] 50:21 Merathaim means double rebellion [6] 50:21 Pekod means punishment [7] 50:21 That is, set apart (devote) as an offering to the Lord (for destruction) [8]&

With family: 2 Kings 21; Hebrews 3 2 Kings 21 (Listen) Manasseh Reigns in Judah 21 Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Hephzibah. 2 And he did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to the despicable practices of the nations whom the LORD drove out before the people of Israel. 3 For he rebuilt the high places that Hezekiah his father had destroyed, and he erected altars for Baal and made an Asherah, as Ahab king of Israel had done, and worshiped all the host of heaven and served them. 4 And he built altars in the house of the LORD, of which the LORD had said, “In Jerusalem will I put my name.” 5 And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD. 6 And he burned his son as an offering1 and used fortune-telling and omens and dealt with mediums and with necromancers. He did much evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking him to anger. 7 And the carved image of Asherah that he had made he set in the house of which the LORD said to David and to Solomon his son, “In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put my name forever. 8 And I will not cause the feet of Israel to wander anymore out of the land that I gave to their fathers, if only they will be careful to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the Law that my servant Moses commanded them.” 9 But they did not listen, and Manasseh led them astray to do more evil than the nations had done whom the LORD destroyed before the people of Israel. Manasseh's Idolatry Denounced 10 And the LORD said by his servants the prophets, 11 “Because Manasseh king of Judah has committed these abominations and has done things more evil than all that the Amorites did, who were before him, and has made Judah also to sin with his idols, 12 therefore thus says the LORD, the God of Israel: Behold, I am bringing upon Jerusalem and Judah such disaster2 that the ears of everyone who hears of it will tingle. 13 And I will stretch over Jerusalem the measuring line of Samaria, and the plumb line of the house of Ahab, and I will wipe Jerusalem as one wipes a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down. 14 And I will forsake the remnant of my heritage and give them into the hand of their enemies, and they shall become a prey and a spoil to all their enemies, 15 because they have done what is evil in my sight and have provoked me to anger, since the day their fathers came out of Egypt, even to this day.” 16 Moreover, Manasseh shed very much innocent blood, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another, besides the sin that he made Judah to sin so that they did what was evil in the sight of the LORD. 17 Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh and all that he did, and the sin that he committed, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 18 And Manasseh slept with his fathers and was buried in the garden of his house, in the garden of Uzza, and Amon his son reigned in his place. Amon Reigns in Judah 19 Amon was twenty-two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned two years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Meshullemeth the daughter of Haruz of Jotbah. 20 And he did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, as Manasseh his father had done. 21 He walked in all the way in which his father walked and served the idols that his father served and worshiped them. 22 He abandoned the LORD, the God of his fathers, and did not walk in the way of the LORD. 23 And the servants of Amon conspired against him and put the king to death in his house. 24 But the people of the land struck down all those who had conspired against King Amon, and the people of the land made Josiah his son king in his place. 25 Now the rest of the acts of Amon that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 26 And he was buried in his tomb in the garden of Uzza, and Josiah his son reigned in his place. Footnotes [1] 21:6 Hebrew made his son pass through the fire [2] 21:12 Or evil (ESV) Hebrews 3 (Listen) Jesus Greater Than Moses 3 Therefore, holy brothers,1 you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, 2 who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God's2 house. 3 For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses—as much more glory as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself. 4 (For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.) 5 Now Moses was faithful in all God's house as a servant, to testify to the things that were to be spoken later, 6 but Christ is faithful over God's house as a son. And we are his house, if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.3 A Rest for the People of God 7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says,   “Today, if you hear his voice,8   do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,    on the day of testing in the wilderness,9   where your fathers put me to the test    and saw my works for forty years.10   Therefore I was provoked with that generation,  and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart;    they have not known my ways.'11   As I swore in my wrath,    ‘They shall not enter my rest.'” 12 Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. 13 But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end. 15 As it is said,   “Today, if you hear his voice,  do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” 16 For who were those who heard and yet rebelled? Was it not all those who left Egypt led by Moses? 17 And with whom was he provoked for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did he swear that they would not enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient? 19 So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief. Footnotes [1] 3:1 Or brothers and sisters; also verse 12 [2] 3:2 Greek his; also verses 5, 6 [3] 3:6 Some manuscripts insert firm to the end (ESV) In private: Psalm 139; Hosea 14 Psalm 139 (Listen) Search Me, O God, and Know My Heart To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. 139   O LORD, you have searched me and known me!2   You know when I sit down and when I rise up;    you discern my thoughts from afar.3   You search out my path and my lying down    and are acquainted with all my ways.4   Even before a word is on my tongue,    behold, O LORD, you know it altogether.5   You hem me in, behind and before,    and lay your hand upon me.6   Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;    it is high; I cannot attain it. 7   Where shall I go from your Spirit?    Or where shall I flee from your presence?8   If I ascend to heaven, you are there!    If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!9   If I take the wings of the morning    and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,10   even there your hand shall lead me,    and your right hand shall hold me.11   If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,    and the light about me be night,”12   even the darkness is not dark to you;    the night is bright as the day,    for darkness is as light with you. 13   For you formed my inward parts;    you knitted me together in my mother's womb.14   I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.1  Wonderful are your works;    my soul knows it very well.15   My frame was not hidden from you,  when I was being made in secret,    intricately woven in the depths of the earth.16   Your eyes saw my unformed substance;  in your book were written, every one of them,    the days that were formed for me,    when as yet there was none of them. 17   How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!    How vast is the sum of them!18   If I would count them, they are more than the sand.    I awake, and I am still with you. 19   Oh that you would slay the wicked, O God!    O men of blood, depart from me!20   They speak against you with malicious intent;    your enemies take your name in vain.221   Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD?    And do I not loathe those who rise up against you?22   I hate them with complete hatred;    I count them my enemies. 23   Search me, O God, and know my heart!    Try me and know my thoughts!324   And see if there be any grievous way in me,    and lead me in the way everlasting!4 Footnotes [1] 139:14 Or for I am fearfully set apart [2] 139:20 Hebrew lacks your name [3] 139:23 Or cares [4] 139:24 Or in the ancient way (compare Jeremiah 6:16) (ESV) Hosea 14 (Listen) A Plea to Return to the Lord 14   Return, O Israel, to the LORD your God,    for you have stumbled because of your iniquity.2   Take with you words    and return to the LORD;  say to him,    “Take away all iniquity;  accept what is good,    and we will pay with bulls    the vows1 of our lips.3   Assyria shall not save us;    we will not ride on horses;  and we will say no more, ‘Our God,'    to the work of our hands.  In you the orphan finds mercy.” 4   I will heal their apostasy;    I will love them freely,    for my anger has turned from them.5   I will be like the dew to Israel;    he shall blossom like the lily;    he shall take root like the trees of Lebanon;6   his shoots shall spread out;    his beauty shall be like the olive,    and his fragrance like Lebanon.7   They shall return and dwell beneath my2 shadow;    they shall flourish like the grain;  they shall blossom like the vine;    their fame shall be like the wine of Lebanon. 8   O Ephraim, what have I to do with idols?    It is I who answer and look after you.3  I am like an evergreen cypress;    from me comes your fruit. 9   Whoever is wise, let him understand these things;    whoever is discerning, let him know them;  for the ways of the LORD are right,    and the upright walk in them,    but transgressors stumble in them.

God promised and then God delayed. Israel's heart broke. Surely you know the feeling. When God delays our hearts sometimes crumble with disappointment or harden with anger. We’ve prayed for Him to intervene. We've plead for His rescue. We've longed for His help. Yet He delays. How do we make sense of it?

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 52 Surely you've noticed that the Woke movement doesn't build anything or accomplish anything productive. There's a reason for that. The only thing they bring to the table is protest, which is to say destruction. Disrupt, dismantle, deconstruct, subvert, and then "reimagine"; that's their whole program. This has been summarized here on the New Discourses Podcast under the slogan "Communism doesn't know how" (https://newdiscourses.com/2021/04/communism-doesnt-know-how/), but in this episode, James Lindsay walks you through their literature again, showing you that protest is the only method they intend to bring to the table. That protest is rooted in a profound paranoia that pervades all of Critical Theory, and thus the entire Woke movement can be summarized as being one of little more than protest and paranoia. Join James for another in-depth discussion of the Woke literature and what it tells us about the movement we're all dealing with.

On this week's podcast, Henry Hill is joined by Chelsea TV's Zac Djellab and the lesser-spotted James Waine to discuss the current managerial merry-go-round. Nuno Espirito Santo? Gone! Steve Bruce? Gone! Dean Smith and Rafa Benitez? Going...or staying? Then of course the ins - Antonio Conte has arrived at Spurs and will presumably be taking the big office off Fabio Paratici's hands, whilst Newcastle don't seem to have any plan behind the scenes. Unai Emery said no (wisely), so could Eddie Howe be on the way in? James even proposes a return to the Premier League for Sam Allardyce. Surely not? It's all a very fluid situation. Enjoy!
