October 13, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read the second chapter of the letter to the Hebrews, two Psalms and the last chapter of Jeremiah.

October 13: Hebrews 2, Psalm 125, Psalm 126, Jeremiah 52 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Hebrews 2. Do not neglect so great a salvation. God cannot die, He is eternal, but He had to be made a little bit lower than the angels, in the form of man, so that he could die. And so Jesus had to endure sufferings, even taste death for our redemption. He was in every way tempted just like we are, and emphasizes with us in our temptations and trials. Praise God!

Psalm 125 is a song of Ascents, sung by pilgrims on the way to Jerusalem to one of the three yearly prescribed feasts.

Psalm 126 likewise is a Song of Ascents. One verse: “They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

Jeremiah 52 is a historical epilogue to the book of Jeremiah. It tells of the fall of Jerusalem, the temple plundered and burned, the important people taken into captivity in Babylon, and finally Jehoiachin released from jail, but remaining in Babylon.
