Bible Challenge 08/04 - 08/10

Greetings All!

This week we finish up the fifth section of Psalms. Whew! The longest book in the Bible is complete. You should feel a huge sense of accomplishment! Of the Psalms we are reading this week, Psalm 137 is an interesting one. It includes the line, "by the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down and wept." This Psalm is clearly written years after David when the people of God were in living in captivity/slavery in Babylon. It has been used in at least one spiritual as well as a reggae song. The Orthodox churches often use this as a hymn during Lent.

Here is the schedule:

04, Sunday: Psalms123-126

05, Monday: Psalms 127-130

06, Tuesday: Psalms131-134

07, Wednesday: Psalms 135-138

08, Thursday: Psalms 139-142

09, Friday: Psalms 143-146

10, Saturday: Psalms 147-150

May God add His richest blessings to the reading, the hearing, the understanding and most importantly the living out of His holy word. Amen.
