August 16, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read the last chapter of Philippians and four chapters of Isaiah.

August 16: Philippians 4, Isaiah 19, Isaiah 20, Isaiah 21, Isaiah 22 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Philippians 4. Paul’s theme is joy “dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.” andRejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.” and this gemNot that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” and this one “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” This letter of joy and encouragement ends with a greeting: “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”

Isaiah 19 gives an oracle about Egypt and tells of the future blessing of Assyria, Egypt and Israel.

Isaiah 20 is very short and contains a prophecy against Egypt and Cush.

Isaiah 21. The prophecies continue, this time against Babylon, Edom and Arabia.

Isaiah 22 contains a prophecy about Jerusalem.
