Relaxing between the gospel of Matthew and the gospel of Mark we read two short Psalms and two chapters out of Exodus.
Psalm 13 is only 6 verses, but there is a moving Anglican Chant written and sung. Enjoy.
Psalm 14 is also short. It begins “The fool has said in his heart, there is NO GOD.”
In Numbers 12 Miriam and Aaron opposed Moses and Miriam suffered the consequences.
In Numbers 13 God prepared His people to take the land He had promised them, so they were sending out scouts to survey the land and how best to take it. They came back with a discouraging report; it is a good land flowing with milk and honey, but the people are too strong for them, they felt like grasshoppers in their sight. Only Caleb dissented. (Joshua joined Caleb in the next chapter)
