2CHRONICLES 22-23:
Yesterday we heard of Jehoshaphat’s famous victory, accomplished only by prayer, worship, and the power of the Lord. Then his son Jehoram might possibly be Judah’s worst king, except for several at the very end of that kingdom.

ECCLESIASTES 2a:
Yesterday the theme of Ecclesiastes was given in these words:

NLT 2 “Everything is meaningless,” says the Teacher, “completely meaningless!”
15 What is wrong cannot be made right.
What is missing cannot be recovered.
18 The greater my wisdom, the greater my grief.
To increase knowledge only increases sorrow.

MATTHEW 15b:
In yesterday’s reading, the confrontation with the Jewish religious leaders about traditions of hand washing before eating led to Jesus’ revolutionary teaching about what defiles a person. It is what comes out of the heart that defiles people.

Translation note:
37 They all ate and had enough. Then [we//the] disciples took up seven [large] baskets full of pieces left over.
