Psalm: 77

Meditation

Isaiah: Isaiah prefigures the verse in John’s Revelation (1:8): the first and last. The LORD, speaking through Isaiah, eloquently describes His own attribute and His faithfulness to His people. There is a sense of melancholy (v. 18) of blessings missed because of the desertion of His people. When the prophet, speaking for the LORD, tells the Israelites to “Go out from Babylon, flee from Chaldea.” (v. 20) I think Isaiah/the LORD is urging the people to turn from idolatry as that seems to have been the most frequent complaint God holds against them.

Gospel: 

Mark 6:1-13

New Testament:

Galatians 1:18—2:10

Old Testament:

Isaiah 48:12-21
