September 12, read through the Bible in a year.

Between Second Thessalonians and  First Timothy we read one Psalm and the first two chapters of Jeremiah.

September 12: Psalm 103, Jeremiah 1, Jeremiah 2 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Psalm 103, of David. There are many songs of praise in the Bible. This is probably the purest of them all. It combines God’s mercifulness and our shortcomings, His healing power and our frailty and above all our very limited life here on earth and the eternity of God.

Jeremiah 1, the call of Jeremiah. The key word in Jeremiah’s call is “before“. Here God confirms His call with two visions, the branch of an almond tree and a boiling pot tilting away from the north. These are promises of the fulfillment of God’s word and of an impending disaster. God finally assures Jeremiah He will be with him, so don’t worry.

Jeremiah 2. Israel has forsaken the LORD, and God’s gives His case against Israel.
