July 5: Read through the Holy Bible in a year.

Acts 24. Paul was on trial before Felix. He put up a vigorous defense, but to no avail. Felix adjourned the trial until Lysias would come back. Two years passed and Felix kept Paul in prison, hoping for a bribe so he could release him. None came and Felix was replaced by Justus, but Paul was still kept in prison past the time allowed, in order to keep the Jews pacified.

Proverbs 8 praises the excellence of Wisdom.

Psalm 49, of the Sons of Korah. This psalm is more of a teaching Psalm and give instruction on how to live and gives hope of salvation “But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave,For He shall receive me

Psalm 50, of Asaph. God says: “for every animal of the forest is mine,
    and the cattle on a thousand hills.” and “Sacrifice thank offerings to God,
    fulfill your vows to the Most High,
     and call on me in the day of trouble;
    I will deliver you, and you will honor me.
