In yesterday’s reading, the vision of the glory of the Lord left the temple. Then God disagreed with what the leaders of the Israelites were saying, that they were safe in the ‘pot’ of Jerusalem.
SONG OF SOLOMON 7:
As we heard yesterday, the bride is captivating in beauty, and so radiant that she is compared to the sun and moon.
In yesterday’s reading we heard about these events: the plot to kill Jesus, Jesus being anointed at Bethany, the Last Supper, and Peter vowing that he would never deny Jesus.
Mat. 26:45 Then he returned to the disciples and said, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Look! The hour has come for [me,] the Son of Man[,] to be handed over to the power of sinners.
64 Jesus answered him, “So you say. But I tell all of you: from this time on you will see [me,] the Son of Man[,] sitting at the right side of the Almighty and coming on the clouds of heaven!”
Ez. 12:11 [Then] Explain [to them] that your actions are a sign to show what will soon happen to them, for they will be driven into exile as captives.
SS. [In the NLT, the chapter break comes at an inconvenient place. GNT interprets the last verse as the woman’s words.]
