Day 273

The 297 Day Bible – Day 273
Christ in the Prophets
Habakkuk Chapter 3

1 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet. Upon Shigionoth.

2 O LORD, I have heard the report of Thee, and am afraid; O LORD, revive Thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember compassion.

3 God cometh from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran.

Selah

His glory covereth the heavens, and the earth is full of His praise.

4 And a brightness appeareth as the light; rays hath He at His side; and there is the hiding of His power.

5 Before him goeth the pestilence, and fiery bolts go forth at His feet.

6 He standeth, and shaketh the earth, He beholdeth, and maketh the nations to tremble; and the everlasting mountains are dashed in pieces, the ancient hills do bow; His goings are as of old.

7 I see the tents of Cushan in affliction; the curtains of the land of Midian do tremble.

8 Is it, O LORD, that against the rivers, is it that Thine anger is kindled against the rivers, or Thy wrath against the sea? that Thou dost ride upon Thy horses, upon Thy chariots of victory?

9 Thy bow is made quite bare; sworn are the rods of the word.

Selah

Thou dost cleave the earth with rivers.

10 The mountains have seen Thee, and they tremble; the tempest of waters floweth over; the deep uttereth its voice, and lifteth up its hands on high.

11 The sun and moon stand still in their habitation; at the light of Thine arrows as they go, at the shining of Thy glittering spear.

12 Thou marchest through the earth in indignation, Thou threshest the nations in anger.

13 Thou art come forth for the deliverance of Thy people, for the deliverance of Thine anointed; Thou woundest the head out of the house of the wicked, uncovering the foundation even unto the neck.

Selah {P}

14 Thou hast stricken through with his own rods the head of his rulers, that come as a whirlwind to scatter me; whose rejoicing is as to devour the poor secretly.

15 Thou hast trodden the sea with Thy horses, the foaming of mighty waters.

16 When I heard, mine inward parts trembled, my lips quivered at the voice; rottenness entereth into my bones, and I tremble where I stand; that I should wait for the day of trouble, when he cometh up against the people that he invadeth.

17 For though the fig-tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no food; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls;

18 Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will exult in the God of my salvation.
19 God, the Lord, is my strength, and He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and He maketh me to walk upon my high places.

For the Leader. With my string-music. {P}

Zephaniah Chapter 1

1 The word of the LORD which came unto Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hezekiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.

2 I will utterly consume all things from off the face of the earth, saith the LORD.

3 I will consume man and beast, I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off the face of the earth, saith the LORD.

4 And I will stretch out My hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the idolatrous priests with the priests;

5 And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship, that swear to the LORD and swear by Malcam;

6 Them also that are turned back from following the LORD; and those that have not sought the LORD, nor inquired after Him.

7 Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD; for the day of the LORD is at hand, for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, He hath consecrated His guests.

8 And it shall come to pass in the day of the LORD’S sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king’s sons, and all such as are clothed with foreign apparel.

9 In the same day also will I punish all those that leap over the threshold, that fill their master’s house with violence and deceit.

10 And in that day, saith the LORD, Hark! a cry from the fish gate, and a wailing from the second quarter, and a great crashing from the hills.

11 Wail, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people are undone; all they that were laden with silver are cut off. {S}

12 And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with lamps; and I will punish the men that are settled on their lees, that say in their heart:
‘The LORD will not do good, neither will He do evil.’

13 Therefore their wealth shall become a booty, and their houses a desolation; yea, they shall build houses, but shall not inhabit them, and they shall plant vineyards, but shall not drink the wine thereof.

14 The great day of the LORD is near, it is near and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD, wherein the mighty man crieth bitterly.

15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

16 A day of the horn and alarm, against the fortified cities, and against the high towers.

17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like the blind, because they have sinned against the LORD; and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as dung. 18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD’S wrath; but the whole earth shall be devoured by the fire of His jealousy; for He will make an end, yea, a terrible end, of all them that dwell in the earth. {S}

Christ in the Writings
Nehemiah Chapter 2

1 And it came to pass in the month Nisan, in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes the king, when wine was before him, that I took up the wine, and gave it unto the king. Now I had not been beforetime sad in his presence.

2 And the king said unto me:
‘Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? this is nothing else but sorrow of heart.’
Then I was very sore afraid.

3 And I said unto the king:
‘Let the king live for ever: why should not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers’ sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed with fire?’ {S}

4 Then the king said unto me:
‘For what dost thou make request?’
So I prayed to the God of heaven.

5 And I said unto the king:
‘If it please the king, and if thy servant have found favour in thy sight, that thou wouldest send me unto Judah, unto the city of my fathers’ sepulchres, that I may build it.’

6 And the king said unto me, the queen also sitting by him:
‘For how long shall thy journey be? and when wilt thou return?’
So it pleased the king to send me; and I set him a time.

7 Moreover I said unto the king:
‘If it please the king, let letters be given me to the governors beyond the River, that they may let me pass through till I come unto Judah;

8 and a letter unto Asaph the keeper of the king’s park, that he may give me timber to make beams for the gates of the castle which appertaineth to the house, and for the wall of the city, and for the house that I shall enter into.’
And the king granted me, according to the good hand of my God upon me.

9 Then I came to the governors beyond the River, and gave them the king’s letters. Now the king had sent with me captains of the army and horsemen. {P}

10 And when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, heard of it, it grieved them exceedingly, for that there was come a man to seek the welfare of the children of Israel.

11 So I came to Jerusalem, and was there three days.

12 And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither told I any man what my God put into my heart to do for Jerusalem; neither was there any beast with me, save the beast that I rode upon.

13 And I went out by night by the valley gate, even toward the dragon’s well, and to the dung gate, and viewed the walls of Jerusalem, which were broken down, and the gates thereof were consumed with fire.

14 Then I went on to the fountain gate and to the king’s pool; but there was no place for the beast that was under me to pass.

15 Then went I up in the night in the valley, and viewed the wall; and I turned back, and entered by the valley gate, and so returned.

16 And the rulers knew not whither I went, or what I did; neither had I as yet told it to the Jews, nor to the priests, nor to the nobles, nor to the rulers, nor to the rest that did the work.

17 Then said I unto them:
‘Ye see the evil case that we are in, how Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with fire; come and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we be no more a reproach.’

18 And I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; as also of the king’s words that he had spoken unto me. And they said:
‘Let us rise up and build.’
So they strengthened their hands for the good work. {P}

19 But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it, they laughed us to scorn, and despised us, and said: ‘What is this thing that ye do? will ye rebel against the king?’

20 Then answered I them, and said unto them:
‘The God of heaven, He will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build; but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.’

15 And the fountain gate repaired Shallun the son of Colhozeh, the ruler of the district of Mizpah; he built it, and covered it, and set up the doors thereof, the bolts thereof, and the bars thereof, and the wall of the pool of Shelah by the king’s garden, even unto the stairs that go down from the city of David. {S}

26 Now the Nethinim dwelt in Ophel, unto the place over against the water gate toward the east, and the tower that standeth out.– {S}

32 And between the upper chamber of the corner and the sheep gate repaired the goldsmiths and the merchants. {P}

33 But it came to pass that, when Sanballat heard that we builded the wall, he was wroth, and took great indignation, and mocked the Jews.

34 And he spoke before his brethren and the army of Samaria, and said:
‘What do these feeble Jews? will they restore at will? will they sacrifice? will they make an end this day? will they revive the stones out of the heaps of rubbish, seeing they are burned?’

35 Now Tobiah the Ammonite was by him, and he said:
‘Even that which they build, if a fox go up, he shall break down their stone wall.’ {P}

36 Hear, O our God; for we are despised; and turn back their reproach upon their own head, and give them up to spoiling in a land of captivity;

37 and cover not their iniquity, and let not their sin be blotted out from before Thee; for they have vexed Thee before the builders.

38 So we built the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto half the height thereof; for the people had a mind to work. {P}

Cast me not away, JESUSbible.III

Psalms

51,1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David;

51,2 When Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bath-sheba.

51,3 Be gracious unto me, O God, according to Thy mercy; according to the multitude of Thy compassions blot out my transgressions.

51,4 Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

51,5 For I know my transgressions; and my sin is ever before me.

51,6 Against Thee, Thee only, have I sinned, and done that which is evil in Thy sight; {N}
that Thou mayest be justified when Thou speakest, and be in the right when Thou judgest.

51,7 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.

51,8 Behold, Thou desirest truth in the inward parts; make me, therefore, to know wisdom in mine inmost heart.

51,9 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

51,10 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which Thou hast crushed may rejoice.

51,11 Hide Thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

51,12 Create me a clean heart, O God; and renew a stedfast spirit within me.

51,13 Cast me not away from Thy presence; and take not Thy holy spirit from me.

51,14 Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation; and let a willing spirit uphold me.

51,15 Then will I teach transgressors Thy ways; and sinners shall return unto Thee.

51,16 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, Thou God of my salvation; {N}
so shall my tongue sing aloud of Thy righteousness.

51,17 O Lord, open Thou my lips; and my mouth shall declare Thy praise.

51,18 For Thou delightest not in sacrifice, else would I give it; Thou hast no pleasure in burnt-offering.

51,19 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; {N}
a broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise.

51,20 Do good in Thy favour unto Zion; build Thou the walls of Jerusalem.

51,21 Then wilt Thou delight in the sacrifices of righteousness, in burnt-offering and whole offering; {N}
then will they offer bullocks upon Thine altar. {P}
