August 1, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

In between The Apostle Paul’s letter to the Galatians and his letter to the Ephesians we read two Psalms and the first two chapters of Ecclesiastes.

August 1: Psalm 67, Psalm 68, Ecclesiastes 1, Ecclesiastes 2 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Psalm 67, a Song. A short, beautiful Psalm of praise and singing. It ends with the prophetic “God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.

Psalm 68, of David. George Horne described how this psalm was assigned to Pentecost in the Anglican liturgy, no doubt because it describes gifts given upon ascension and is quoted in Ephesians 4. “This beautiful, sublime, and comprehensive, but very difficult Psalm, is one of those which the church has appointed to be used on Whitsunday.”

Ecclesiastes 1. The author, king Solomon spoke of the vanity of life and the grief of wisdom.

Ecclesiastes 2 King Solomon continued with the vanity of pleasure, the end of the wise and the end of the fool.
