October 11, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

In between the Apostle Paul’s letter to Philemon and the letter to the Hebrews we read one chapter of Proverbs and one chapter of Jeremiah.

October 11: Proverbs 18, Jeremiah 50 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Proverbs 18, proverbs of Solomon. One proverb is a gem: “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.” I did. The last proverb in the chapter intrigues me, it reads quite differently in KJV and NIV. This is the NIV version: “One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” My (Zondervan) copy of the NIV reads “A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” The King James version reads: ” A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Translations can be tricky.

Jeremiah 50. The judgments continued, this time against Babylon and Babylonia.
