In yesterday's portions we heard how God proved again His choice of Aaron and the Levites by causing Aaron's staff to bud and even produce almonds. And God explained to the Levites and priests that their portion was not land— as for the other Israelites, but God himself and all the gifts given to God.
Today we return to the acrostic poem, Psalm 37. Look for how this poem shows us God’s perspective about this world.
At the end of chapter 23, we heard of the events of the crucifixion, including the miracle of the torn curtain in the temple. Jesus was laid in a tomb while the women watched, and they prepared spices to go back and anoint his body.
7 ‘[I,] The Son of Man must be handed over to sinners, be crucified, and three days later [I will] rise to life.’”
6 He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee, 7 that [He,/0] the Son of Man[,/0] must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again on the third day.”
