In yesterday's reading, Jacob arrived in Egypt with his family. Excluding more extended family, the whole group numbered 70 people at that time.

We turn to Job 29, which is his 4th chapter of monologue. Today Job speaks of his former blessings.

Translation notes:

12 For I assisted the poor in their need

and the orphans who [needed/required] help.

18 “I thought, ‘Surely [my death will come after a good, long life//I will die surrounded by my family

after a long, good life] and I will be surrounded by my family.

24 When they were discouraged, I [had only to smile//smiled] at them.

My look of approval was precious to them.

Yesterday's reading in 1 Peter included the wonderful “Living

Stones” passage which includes much about our spiritual identity

because of our being joined to Christ, the Corner Stone.

Translation notes:

15 Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your

life. And if someone asks about [where you have placed your hope//your Christian hope], always be ready to explain [about Christ/it].
