Today there are three chapters.
January 25: Proverbs 2, Exodus 1, Exodus 2 (click on the chapter to begin reading)
Proverbs 2 continues where Proverbs 1 left off, telling of the moral benefits of wisdom.
A few hundred years has passed since the end of Genesis and Exodus 1 tells how the Hebrews multiplied and became a perceived threat to the Egyptians. The Egyptians told the Hebrew midwives that every boy they delivered must be thrown into the Nile, but every girl were to be let to live.
Which seamlessly leads into Exodus 2, how Moses when he was born was thrown into the Nile, but he was placed in a papyrus basket and laid crying in the reeds. Pharaoh’s daughter heard it, picked him up and asked her servant to find somebody to nurse him. Of course she found Moses’ own mother to nurse him. After he was weaned Moses grew up in Pharaoh’s household and got educated. He did remember he was a Hebrew, so when he saw and Egyptian mistreat a Hebrew he killed the Egyptian. This became known and Moses fled to Midian, where he spent 40 years tending flocks. Great reading.
Today there are five chapters.
January 23: Psalm 3, Psalm 4, Genesis 47, Genesis 48, Proverbs 1 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Psalm 3 is a Psalm of David from when he fled from his son Absalom.
Psalm 4 is David’s appeal to righteousness, and the blessings that follow.
Genesis 47 tells of how Jacob and his descendants settled in Goshen, about the continuing famine, and how Joseph, controlling the food supply enslaved the people. All power corrupt,…
Genesis 48 tells of how Jacob blessed Ephraim and Manasseh. He blessed Ephraim ahead of Manasseh, even though Manasseh was the older of Joseph’s sons.
Finally there is Proverbs 1. It extols the virtue of wisdom. Read it and apply it.
