2CHRONICLES 18:
Woops. Asa didn’t end nearly as well as he started. And his son Jehoshaphat starts out well, but makes unfortunate alliances.

PROVERBS 31a:
Today and tomorrow are our last two days in Proverbs. Verses 10-31 of chapter 31 comprise a Hebrew acrostic poem; each verse begins with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Our highlighted verse today is verse 10. I like NLT’s translation better because the Hebrew word describing a good wife means more than just capable. It also includes valor and virtue.

Pro. 31:10 [NLT Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
She is more precious than rubies.//GNT 10How hard it is to find a capable wife! She is worth far more than jewels!]

MATTHEW 13b:
Yesterday we heard the first two major parables in Jesus’ teaching, and the reason why He spoke in parables.

GNT Translation notes:
Mat. 13:37 Jesus answered, “The man who sowed the good seed is [Me,] the Son of Man;
41 [I,] the Son of Man will send out [my//his] angels to gather up out of [my//his] Kingdom all those who cause people to sin and all others who do evil things,
42 and [the angels//they] will throw them into the fiery furnace, where they will cry and gnash their teeth.
58 Because they did not [believe in Him//have faith], he did not perform many miracles there.
