August 10, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

In between the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians and his beautiful letter to the Philippians we read one chapter of Proverbs and three chapters of Isaiah.

August 10: Proverbs 11, Isaiah 5, Isaiah 6, Isaiah 7 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Proverbs 11. The list of Solomon’s Proverbs is many chapters long.

Isaiah 5. The Song of the Vineyard. The chapter starts out beautifully, but then tells of judgement. In chapter three was proclaimed two woes. In chapter five God proclaimed six more woes.

In Isaiah 6 is told the famous call of Isaiah: “Here am I, send me“. God answered by telling Isaiah of all the hardships that will come with answering such a call. The people will harden their hearts as Pharaoh hardened his.

Isaiah 7: “Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” After that promise God spoke of a coming disaster.

Isaiah 6, the call of Isaiah, “Here am I, send me”, hardened hearts.
