Psalm: 62

Meditation

Joshua: The title of the Old Negro spiritual “Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho” captures what happened here. The LORD had commanded Joshua to assemble the Israelite army for “I have delivered the Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men.” (v. 2) The Israelites have yet to do anything and yet the LORD is speaking of this event as already completed. The hardest work here will be the poor priests who have to carry the Ark of the Covenant around the city seven (!) times before the famous shout brings down the walls.

Gospel: Matthew 26:26-35

New Testament: Romans 13:1-7

Old Testament: Joshua 6:1-14
