October 12, read through the Holy Bible in a year.

2 Timothy 2:14-26. The Apostle Paul defended his motives and his conduct, they were all pure. Then he gave thanks to God for the conversion of the Thessalonians and mentioned his longing to see them.

Lamentations 1. It was written as dirge poetry at the time when Jerusalem was afflicted and captured. It is a true acrostic, which means the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet are used in succession to begin the lines and sections of those songs.

Lamentations 2. It too is dirge poetry written in an acrostic form emphasizing God’s anger over Jerusalem.

Psalm 91. The author is anonymous. Charles Spurgeon commented: “In the whole collection there is not a more cheering Psalm, its tone is elevated and sustained throughout, faith is at its best, and speaks nobly.” He also quoted (in English) Siméon Marotte deMuis: “It is one of the most excellent works of this kind which has ever appeared. It is impossible to imagine anything more solid, more beautiful, more profound, or more ornamented.”

Psalm 92. A Song for the Sabbath day. Give thanks to the LORD. God judges His enemies, and He makes His people flourish.
