Yesterday we heard the details about Mannaseh and Ephraim's allotment of land. I suggest that it will be very helpful for your understanding of these chapters in Joshua to do an Internet search for “map tribes Israel.”

Do you remember what Paul talked to Felix about from yesterday’s reading? Asaph’s psalm takes a similar theme today.
Paul's accusers came, and Paul defended himself before the governor. The governor put off making a decision, and never got around to making one. One day at the beginning of that time, he and his Jewish wife came to listen to Paul for a little entertainment. But Felix cut the discussion short when Paul meddled a little too much. Paul stayed there in jail for two long years, and never gave a bribe to Felix. Finally Felix left Paul in prison when he was replaced by Festus.
Ps. 75:7 it is [You, O God, who are//God who is] the judge, condemning some and acquitting others.
8 [You, Lord, hold a cup in your hand//The Lord holds a cup in his hand], filled with the strong wine of [your//his] anger.
[You pour//He pours] it out, and all the wicked drink it; they drink it down to the last drop.
9 But I will never stop speaking of [You, O God//the God of] Jacob or singing praises to [You//him].
10 [You//He] will break the power of the wicked, but the power of the righteous will be increased.
Ps. 75:2 [You— O God, say,//God says,] “At the time I have planned, I will bring justice against the wicked.
6 [Yes, Lord,//For] no one on earth—from east or west, or even from the wilderness— should raise a defiant fist [against You!//.]
7 It is [You//God] alone who judge[0//s]; [You decide//he decides] who will rise and who will fall.
8 For [You, O Lord hold//the Lord holds] a cup in [your//his] hand that is full of foaming wine mixed with spices. [You pour//He pours] out the wine in judgment, and all the wicked must drink it, draining it to the dregs.
9 But as for me, I will always proclaim what [You have//God has] done; I will sing praises to the [You—] God of Jacob.
10 For [You say//God says], “I will break the strength of the wicked, but I will increase the power of the godly.”
