Today’s Old Testament chronological reading is in 2 Kings 24:8-25:24.
The Psalms/ Proverbs reading is in Psalm 118.
The New Testament reading is in Hebrews 11.
Today I worked on the Psalm 113-118 Chiastic structure, as it is all a single paragraph in God’s way of dividing the Hebrew paragraphs. I was not able to complete it because it is now noon and I have to go on to other work. But here is the Chiastic structure for Psa 115, which is new today, since I needed to finish mapping it for the greater structure:
The D pair is forced together by the surrounding elements, of which there can be no doubt. How do they pair?
1D) 115:8 Those who make them are like them; So is everyone who trusts in them.
2D) 115:14 May the Lord give you increase more and more, You and your children.
The contrast is in those who trust in false idols vs. those who trust in the true
God, YHVH. If those who trust in false idols are like them, then they have no ability to act for their long-term benefit, whereas those who trust in YHVH receive long-term blessings from His ability to increase them.
