Thursday, February 19 / March 4, 2010: Isa 11:10-12:2, Gen 7:11-8:3, Prov 10:1-22
- passage: Isa 11:10-12:2
And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for
an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest
shall be glorious. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the
Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of
his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from
Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath,
and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the
nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together
the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. The envy
also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut
off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.
But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the
west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their
hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.
And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea;
and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and
shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod.
And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which
shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that
he came up out of the land of Egypt.
And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou
wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.
Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the
LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
passage: Gen 7:11-8:3
In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the
seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains
of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights. In the
selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons
of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them,
into the ark; They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle
after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth
after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.
And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh,
wherein is the breath of life. And they that went in, went in male
and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut
him in. And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters
increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.
And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth;
and the ark went upon the face of the waters. And the waters prevailed
exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under
the whole heaven, were covered. Fifteen cubits upward did the waters
prevail; and the mountains were covered. And all flesh died that
moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and
of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:
All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the
dry land, died. And every living substance was destroyed which was upon
the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things,
and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth:
and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.
And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.
And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that
was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth,
and the waters asswaged; The fountains also of the deep and the windows
of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained; And
the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end
of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.
passage: Prov 10:1-10:22
The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish
son is the heaviness of his mother. Treasures of wickedness profit
nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death. The LORD will not
suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the
substance of the wicked. He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack
hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich. He that gathereth in
summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that
causeth shame. Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence
covereth the mouth of the wicked. The memory of the just is blessed:
but the name of the wicked shall rot. The wise in heart will receive
commandments: but a prating fool shall fall. He that walketh uprightly
walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known. He that
winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall.
The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth
the mouth of the wicked. Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth
all sins. In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found:
but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding. Wise men
lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.
The rich man's wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is
their poverty. The labour of the righteous tendeth to life: the fruit of
the wicked to sin. He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction:
but he that refuseth reproof erreth. He that hideth hatred with lying
lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool. In the multitude of
words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.
The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked
is little worth. The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die
for want of wisdom. The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he
addeth no sorrow with it.
