August 31: Reading the Holy Bible in a year.

Galatians 1. The Apostle Paul started the letter with a greeting and blessing. Then he tore into the Galatians: There is only one gospel, Paul gave his defense for it, and explained his call to apostleship.

Isaiah 30 emphasizes “Don’t trust in Egypt!” But they were a rebellious people; in spite of that God will be gracious to Israel but execute judgement on Assyria.

Isaiah 31 proclaims woe to the Egyptophiles. The LORD will pass over Israel, but not Assyria.

Isaiah 32 ushers in the reign of righteousness, warns against complacency, and says (in King James Bible) “The vile person shall be no more called liberal” (NIV translates liberal as noble) so a few verses down it says (in NIV) “But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand.” The promise is  that the Holy spirit is righteousness and “The fruit of that righteousness will be peace.”
