Yesterday in Leviticus, we heard more regulations for the priests (mainly), and then heard the story of the ordination ceremony that Moses performed for Aaron and his sons.
Psalm 14 can be classed as a messianic psalm because of v7. (However that is made clearer in other translations.) David shows us what God sees when He looks at this world. And that is why Paul quoted from this psalm in Romans 3.
In the second half of Luke 9, Jesus came down from the mountain to find a crowd, and he healed a demon possessed boy. Jesus predicted his death, and talked about the cost of being his disciples.
GNT Translation notes:
Lev. 9:4 and a bull and a ram for a fellowship offering. They are to sacrifice them to [Me— the Lord,//the Lord] with the grain offering mixed with oil. They must do this because [I//the Lord] will appear to them today.”
11 But he [had one of the men burn//burned] the meat and the skin outside the camp.
Ps. 14:3 But [we//they] have all gone wrong; [we//they] are all equally bad. Not one of [us//them] does what is right, not a single one.
Luk. 10:4 Don't take a [wallet//purse] or a beggar's bag or shoes; don't stop to greet anyone on the road.
22 [And Jesus said to his disciples,] “My Father has given me all things. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”
Ps. 14:7 Who will come from Mount Zion to rescue Israel?
When the LORD restores his people,
Jacob['s people/0] will shout with joy, and all Israel will rejoice.
Luk. 10:5 “Whenever you enter someone’s home, first say, ‘May God’s peace be on this house.’ 6 If those who live there are [people who desire God's peace//peaceful], the blessing will stand; if they are not, the blessing will return to you.
23 Then when they were alone, he turned to the disciples and said, “Blessed are [your eyes because of what you have been allowed to see.// “Blessed are the eyes that see what you have seen.]
24 I tell you, many prophets and kings longed to see what you [have been seeing//see], but they didn’t [get to//0] see it. And they longed to hear what you [have been hearing//hear], but they didn’t [get to//0] hear it.”
29 The man wanted to justify his [life-style//actions], so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
36 “Now which of [those/these] three would you say was a neighbor to the man who was attacked by bandits?” Jesus asked.
37 The man replied, “The one who showed him mercy.”
Then Jesus said, “Yes, now [you also//0] go and do the same.”
