August 23, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read the third chapter of Colossians and three chapters of Isaiah.

August 23: Colossians 3, Isaiah 36, Isaiah 37, Isaiah 38 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Colossians 3. Paul lists the rules for holy living;  not carnality but Christ, the character of the New Man and proper relationships in the christian home.

Isaiah 36. Isaiah breaks from prophecy and gives a historical rendition, duplicated is 2 Kings. This is not plagiarism, Isaiah was the scribe during Hezekiah’s reign

Isaiah 37. Jerusalem’s deliverance is foretold, Hezekiah’s prayer and the word of the LORD concerning Sennacherib, and his final fall.

Isaiah 38 desaribes Hezekiah’s illness and how the LORD added 15 years to his life.
