September 29, read through the Bible in a year.

In between Second Timothy and Titus we read one Psalm and two chapters of Jeremiah.

September 29: Psalm 112, Jeremiah 29, Jeremiah 30 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Psalm 112. Like Psalm 111 an acrostic Psalm, meaning that each line (not verse) begins with the next letter in the Hebrew alphabet, starting with Alef and ends with Taw. It tells of the blessings that follow the man that fears the LORD. Not so the wicked.

Jeremiah 29, Jeremiah sent a letter to the exiles, a letter of hope, and a promise of return “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the Lord: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord“. Then follows a message to Shemaiah, a not so promising message.

Jeremiah 30, a beautiful chapter promising the restoration of Israel.
