Job 28 - Job continues:  There is a mine for silver, but where is wisdom found?  It is hidden from the eyes of all living.  The fear of the Lord is wisdom.

Job 29 - Job continues:  Oh, for the days when God watched over me.  When I took my seat in the square.  I was father to the needy and comforted the mourners.

Job 30 - Job continues:  But now younger men mock me.  They do not hesitate to spit at me.  God has cast me into the mire.  When I expected good, evil came.

Job 31 - Job continues:  Does God not see my ways?  Have I lied?  Have I refused to help the poor?  Have I put my trust in money?  Let the Almighty answer me.

Job 32 - Elihu was angry with Job and his three friends.  He said, I am young, but it is not only the old who are wise.  I will have my say.

Job 33 - Elihu continues:  Job, please listen to my words.  God does speak, perhaps in a dream or through pain.  He does this to deliver a person from the pit.

Job 34 - Elihu continues:  It is unthinkable that God would do wrong.  Can one who hates justice govern?  God shows no partiality.  Job speaks like the wicked.

Job 35 - Elihu continues:  Even if you are righteous, what do you give to God?  He does not answer because of the pride of evil men.  You must wait for Him.

Job 36 - Elihu continues:  I have more to say on God’s behalf.  He is mighty but does not despise any.  Who is a teacher like Him?  Remember to extol His work.

Job 37 - Elihu continues:  God thunders with His voice.  By the breath of God, ice is made.  Do you know His wondrous works?  He is great in power and justice.

Job 38 - Then the LORD speaks:  I will question you.  Where were you when I founded the earth?  Who enclosed the sea?  Can you bind the Pleiades?

Job 39 - God continues:  Do you mark when the deer is born?  Will the wild ox serve you?  Do you give the horse his might?  Does the hawk fly by your wisdom?

Job 40 - Job speaks:  I have no answer; The LORD speaks:  Will you condemn Me?  Behold now, Behemoth, which I made.  Can anyone pierce his nose?

Job 41 - God continues:  Can you catch Leviathan with a hook?  Everything under heaven is Mine.  His breath sets coals ablaze.  He is king over all the proud.

Job 42 - Job speaks:  I repent in ashes; The LORD speaks to Eliphaz, You have not spoken rightly of Me, as Job has; God restores Job’s fortunes.

Psalm 150 - The Grand Finale of praises.


Proverbs 1 - The purpose of the proverbs is for the reader to receive wisdom, justice, judgment and equity; A son is advised against the influence of sinners; The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; A personified Wisdom is imagined in the streets, crying out against fools and scorners; Wisdom has called out, but been rejected; The will eventually laugh at the inevitable calamities that befall; Those who reject her counsel will eat the fruit of their own way.

Proverbs 2 - Advice to son to seek wisdom; The Lord keeps the paths of wisdom; The unrighteous walk in the ways of darkness; Their ways are crooked; A shadowy strange woman is invoked, the apparent antithesis of Wisdom, whose house inclines unto death.
Proverbs 3 - Further advice to seek wisdom, and not be wise in your own eyes; Whom the Lord loves He corrects; The blessings of wisdom are long days and prosperity; Do not envy the oppressor, or choose his ways; The wise shall inherit glory:  but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

Proverbs 4 - The pedigree of wisdom:  the author too was taught by a father; Wisdom shall give to ones head an ornament of grace:  a crown of glory shall she deliver to you; Avoid the paths of evil men; They eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence; Be careful in the path you tread.
Proverbs 5 - The lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:  but her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword; Come not to her house; Do not associate with strangers.
Proverbs 6 - Don’t be surety for thy friend; How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard; The six things hated by the Lord are:  a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness, and he that sows discord among brethren; Keep the commandment of your parents, which is like a lamp; Keep from the evil woman, and do not lust after her; He who commits adultery destroys his own soul.

Proverbs 7 - Wisdom should be thy sister; A young man is mentioned, who is seduced into committing adultery by a strange woman; Her house is the way to hell.
Proverbs 8 - Wisdom cries at the gates of the city; She declares the righteousness of her own words, and speaks of the proper hatred of evil; Through her, kings and princes reign; She leads in the way of righteousness; The Lord possessed her in the beginning; she was set up from everlasting; Before the mountains were settled, she was brought forth; Her presence at primordial creation is continually emphasized; He who sins against wisdom wrongs his own soul.
Proverbs 9 - Wisdom hath built and prepared her house; The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A sharp distinction is drawn between the wise, who grow wiser by instruction and who listen to rebukes, and the scorners, who do not; The simple may come, eat of wisdom’s bread and drink of her wine; Wisdom’s house is contrasted with that of a foolish clamorous woman.
Proverbs 10 - Sundry proverbs:  The difference between the wise and the foolish, the righteous and the wicked, the diligent and the idle; The difference is often couched in terms of what the wise and foolish say:  there is a contrast between the good and the evil tongue, and between the slanderer and the peacemaker.

Proverbs 11 - A parallel of the advantages of the righteous and wise, opposed to the miseries of the wicked and the foolish; True and false riches; Parallelistic verse, using “He who. . .but he who,” or “He who. . .and” formulae.
Proverbs 12 - Of the benefit of instruction, and the cultivation of piety; The virtuous woman; The different lot of the just and unjust; The humane man; The industrious man; The fool and the wise man; The uncharitable; The excellence of the righteous; The slothful is in want; Righteousness leads to life.

Proverbs 14 - Various moral observations; The antithesis between wisdom and folly, and the different effects of each.
Proverbs 15 - The soft answer; Useful correction; Stability of the righteous; The contented mind; The slothful man; The fool; The covetous; The impious; The wicked opposed to the righteous, to the diligent, and to the man who fears the Lord.
Proverbs 16 - Man prepares, but God governs; God has made all things for Himself; God hates pride; The judgments of God; The administration of kings; their justice, anger, and clemency; God has made all in weight, measure, and due proportion; Necessity produces industry; The patient man; The lot is under the direction of the Lord.
Proverbs 17 - Contentment; The wise servant; The Lord tries the heart; Children are a crown to their parents; We should hide our neighbor’s faults; The poor should not be despised; Litigations and quarrels are to be avoided; Wealth is useless to a fool; The good friend; A fool may pass for a wise man when he holds his peace.
Proverbs 18 - The man who separates himself and seeks wisdom; The fool and the wicked man; Deep wisdom; Contention of fools; The talebearer and the slothful; The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous runs into it; Pride and presumption because of riches; Hastiness of spirit; The wounded spirit; The influence of gifts; The lot; The offended brother is hard to be won; The influence of the tongue; A wife is a good from God; The true friend.
Proverbs 19 - The worth of a poor upright man; Riches preserve friends; False witnesses; False friends; A king’s wrath contrasted to his favors; The foolish son; The prudent wife; Slothfulness; Pity for the poor; The fear of the Lord; The spendthrift son; Obedience to parents.
Proverbs 20 - Against wine and strong drink; We should avoid contentions; The sluggard; The righteous man; Weights and measures; Tale-bearers; The wicked son; The wise king; The glory of young men; The beauty of old men; The benefit of correction.
Proverbs 21 - The king’s heart is in the hand of God; We should practice mercy and justice; The lying tongue; The quarrelsome woman; The punishment of the wicked; The uncharitable; The private gift; The happiness of the righteous; The wicked a ransom for the righteous; The treasures of the wise; He who guards his tongue; Desire of the sluggard; The false witness; Salvation is of the Lord.
Proverbs 22 - A good reputation; The rich and the poor; The idle; Good habits formed in infancy; Injustice and its effects; The providence of God; The lewd woman; The necessity of timely correction; Exhortation to wisdom; Rob not the poor; Do not be friends with an angry man; The slothful man. Be honest; The industrious shall be favored.
Proverbs 23 - Sobriety in eating and drinking, especially at the tables of the great; Have no fellowship with the covetous; Remove not the ancient landmark; Children should receive due correction; Avoid the company of wine-bibbers; Obedience to parents; Avoid lewd connections; The effect of an unfeeling conscience.
Proverbs 24 - Do not be envious; the house wisely built; Counsel necessary in war; Save life when thou can; Of honey and the honey-comb; The just falls seven times, but rises again; We should not rejoice at the misfortune of others; Ruin of the wicked; Fear God and the king; Prepare thy work; The field of the sluggard and the vineyard of the foolish described.
Proverbs 25 - The proverbs of Solomon which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied out; God’s mysteriousness is glorious; Observations concerning kings; Avoid contentions; Opportune speech; The faithful ambassador; Delicacies to be sparingly used; Avoid familiarity; Amusements not grateful to a distressed mind; Do good to your enemies; The misery of dwelling with a scold; The necessity of moderation and self-government.

Proverbs 27 - Tomorrow is uncertain; Self-praise forbidden; Anger and envy; Reproof from a friend; Want makes us feel the value of a supply; A good neighbor; Beware of supreme rulers; Suspicious praise; The quarrelsome woman; One friend helps another; Man insatiable; The incorrigible fool; Domestic cares; The profit of flocks for food and clothes.
Proverbs 28 - The timidity of the wicked; Quick succession in the government of a country is a punishment to the land; Of the poor who oppress the poor; The upright poor man is preferable to the wicked rich man; The unprofitable conduct of the usurer; The prosperity of the righteous a cause of rejoicing; He is blessed who fears always; A wicked ruler is a curse; The murderer generally excused; The faithful man; The corrupt judge; The foolishness of trusting in one’s own heart; The charitable man; When the wicked are elevated, it is a public evil.
Proverbs 29 - We must not despise correction; The prudent king; The flatterer; The just judge; Contend not with a fool; The prince who opens his ears to reports; The poor and the deceitful; The pious king; The insolent servant; The humiliation of the proud; Of the partner of a thief; The fear of man; The Lord the righteous judge.
Proverbs 30 - The words of Agur the son of Jakeh; Of wicked generations; Things that are never satisfied:  the grave, the barren womb, the earth that is not filled with water, and fire; Of him who despises his parents; Four wonderful things:  the flight of an eagle, the way of a serpent, the way of a ship, the way of a man with a maid; Three things that disquiet the land:  a servant who reigns, a fool filled with meat, an odious woman married, and a handmaid that is heir to her mistress; Four small but resourceful animals:  ants, rabbits, locusts, spiders; Four things that go well:  a dominant lion, a greyhound, a he-goat and a king against whom there is no rising up; A man should cease from doing foolishly, and from strife.
Proverbs 31 - The words and prophecy of King Lemuel, about what his mother taught him; Debauchery and much wine to be avoided; Kings should administer justice soberly; The praise of a virtuous woman and good housewife, in her economy, prudence, watchfulness, and assiduity in labor; Her price is above rubies.


Ecclesiastes 1 - Solomon looks back over all the wealth he has; his accomplishments; his possessions; to him it all seems meaningless; he believes that serving God is the most important option; he separates wisdom into two categories: 1) Human knowledge, reasoning, or philosophy and 2) The wisdom that can only comes from God.

Ecclesiastes 2 - Solomon conducted his search for life’s meaning as an experiment; the first thing he tried to satisfy himself with was pleasure; he surrounded himself with jesters, singers, and many beautiful women; this still did not satisfy him; he refers to it as chasing after the wind; he believes that we must not base ourselves on the pursuit of happiness, but on the solid foundation of God; because our accomplishments, wealth, and materials mean nothing after death.

Ecclesiastes 3 - Solomon believes that there is a time and place for everything, whether it be good or bad; he believes that you must seek guidance from God to truly know what your path in life is.

Ecclesiastes 4 - Solomon believes that going to the extremes of being lazy or a workaholic is foolish and irresponsible; the answer is to work hard but with moderation; he believes that you should take time to enjoy God’s other gifts and realize that He gives us assignments and rewards, not man; Solomon believes that a person should seek God’s approval above all and not recognition from man.

Ecclesiastes 5 - We should be open to God; we should be ready to listen and not be so hasty to dictate what we want God to do; Solomon believes that it was not wise to make a vow to God and not keep it; it is better to not make a vow than to make one to God and not keep it; Solomon says that riches are meaningless; people who obsess over it never find the true happiness that it promises; loving money leads to sin; don’t depend on money to make you happy; instead, use what you have for the Lord.

Ecclesiastes 6 - Even though a person has lived a long and prosperous life, it is ultimately meaningless; Solomon says this because everything that a person has accumulated is left behind at death; many people strive to prolong life and keep in good physical health, but people don’t spend nearly enough time improving their spiritual health; Solomon also believes that human beings cannot take charge of their own destiny.

Ecclesiastes 7 - Enjoy what you have while you can, but realize that adversity and hard times can strike at any moment; because of this, life is short; death is inevitable; we shouldn’t ignore it because it makes sense to plan ahead to experience God’s mercy rather than His justice; People who are too righteous and too wise are blind to their own faults; there will always be things that we don’t understand; thinking that you have attained enough wisdom is a sure sign that you haven’t.

Ecclesiastes 8 - True wisdom comes from knowing and trusting God, not merely the way to find Him; knowing God will lead to understanding and then to sharing that knowledge with others; even though a man could have all of the world’s wisdom, he would still know very little; no one can fully comprehend God.

Ecclesiastes 9 - Solomon believes in enjoying life as God’s gift; the world is finite, and sin has twisted life, making it something other than what God intended; society honors many things above wisdom such as attractiveness, wealth, popularity, and success; Solomon believes that wisdom is the greatest asset even though it often goes unrecognized.

Ecclesiastes 10 - By describing circumstances that are unfair or don’t make sense, Solomon is saying that wisdom alone can’t bring justice; everything we have is nothing without God; however, when God uses what little we have, it becomes all we could ever want or need; if you lack skills, you should sharpen them through training and practice; this will make you more effective for God’s work.

Ecclesiastes 11 - Because life has no guarantees, we should seize available opportunities and not play it safe; even though life is uncertain, it doesn’t mean that you should let it pass you by; don’t wait for conditions that many never exist; we should enjoy everyday but remember that the afterlife is eternal.

Ecclesiastes 12 - Solomon concludes by giving his antidotes for the two main ailments that he talked about; people who lack purpose and direction in life should fear God and keep His Commandments first; the people who think that life is unfair should remember that God will go back and look at everyone’s lives and make His judgment.


Song Of Solomon 1-8 - Solomon and his bride, her beauty, her wedding, his and her love.

Isaiah 1 - Isaiah prophesied in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah; The Lord visualizes a people laden with iniquity; Your cities are overthrown by strangers; left a very small remnant; do well; care for the needy; The faithful city has become a harlot; the city will become the city of righteousness once more.

Isaiah 2 - In the last days, the Lord’s house shall be established on Zion; all nations shall flow unto it; The Lord shall judge the nations; they shall beat their swords into ploughshares; nation shall not lift up sword against nation; The Lord shall level the land, including the mountains, the towers, and the proud.
Isaiah 3 - The Lord will take away all people of status from Jerusalem and Judah, and give babes to rule over them; The Lord will punish pride, including that of the daughters of Zion; The Lord will smite them with scabs and other afflictions; The men and the mighty shall fall in war.

Isaiah 4 - The calamities of war will be so great that seven women shall be left to one man; purged of filth, the Lord will bless the remnant, and the pillar of cloud by day and fire by night will be created in every dwelling place.

Isaiah 5 - Israel is like a vineyard, which will be abandoned because it produced only wild grapes; woes are promised for a variety of sins; wrath against His people; the Lord will allow a foreign nation to devastate the land.

Isaiah 6 - A vision in the year that king Uzziah died; the Lord on His throne, and above it the seraphim’s; each one had six wings; with two they cover their faces; with two they cover their feet; and with two they fly; Isaiah fears he is undone because he is a man of unclean lips; one of the seraphim’s lays a lump of burning coal in his mouth; his sins are burnt away; Isaiah receives his prophetic commission; the people do not understand, and are not healed; The Lord will remove men far away, but a tenth shall return.

Isaiah 7 - In the days of Ahaz Israel and Syria join in a league against Judah; the Lord tells Ahaz not to fear, for the attack will not succeed; Israel will no longer be a nation in 65; The Lord will give a sign; a virgin will conceive; called Immanuel; God with us; both Israel and Syria will be defeated; the Assyrians will inflict heavy calamities upon Judah; Isaiah counsels against an Judah-Assyria alliance to counter the threat from the Israel-Syria one.

Isaiah 8 - Isaiah has a son; name Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz; riches of Damascus and Israel will be taken away by Assyria; the Assyrian army is compared to water which will overflow its banks and flood Judah with violence and destruction; Judah can prepare for the invasion by fearing God rather than Assyria; seek the Lord’s light and Word, not the darkness of the occult.

Isaiah 9 - Judah will not suffer as greatly as Israel; unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  Because of their unholy pride, Israel will be defeated by her enemies; the people of Israel will also attack each other; exile and slaughter will be a punishment for social injustice.

Isaiah 10 - Woe to Assyria, the instrument in the hand of the Lord; it will be punished for its arrogant superiority; do not be afraid of the Assyrians; the Lord will preserve a remnant of the house of Jacob; the proud of Judah will be humbled.

Isaiah 11 - A shoot shall come forth from the rod of Jesse, possessing the seven spirits of God; God will judge the poor with equity, and slay the wicked; righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, and faithfulness the belt of His waist; the wolf shall dwell with the lamb; the gentiles shall seek Him; the Lord will gather together the scattered of Israel; peace will reign, and neighboring nations will be subdued.

Isaiah 12 - Praise will be offered to the Lord when His anger has passed away; Praise Song; great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst.

Isaiah 13 - An army comes against Babylon; a day of the Lord is promised; great slaughter shall occur, and mortals be more rare than gold; the Medes will be stirred up against Babylon; Babylon will be laid waste, and populated only by wild beasts.

Isaiah 14 - Israel will be settled in its own land, and rule over strangers; the whole earth will rejoice at the fall of the king of Babylon; the pomp of Babylon shall come to nothing, and be received in hell; how are you fallen from Heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning; the nations will be amazed at the complete reversal of fortune; the king of Babylon will be cast out of his grave; Assyria and Philistia will also be crushed.

Isaiah 15 - The cities and soldiers of Moab fall under a night attack; refugees will flee from Moab; refugees and the remnant of Moab will be attacked by lions.

Isaiah 16 - Moab shall send a lamb as tribute to Jerusalem; Judah is to be a place of refuge and protection for the Moabites; Moab is counseled to be a refuge for Israel; Moab shall wail at the judgment of God against it; Judgment will come in three years.

Isaiah 17 - Damascus will become a ruinous heap, and Israel (the northern kingdom, referred to as Ephraim, its dominant tribe) will wane; God’s judgment will bring man’s work to nothing; many nations will rush against Syria and Israel like the rush of many waters; these nations will also be rebuked.

Isaiah 18 - Ethiopian help is not required to deal with Assyria; the Lord will cut off Assyria’s sprigs with pruning hooks; Ethiopians will come to Zion to worship God.

Amos 4 - Women referred to as the cows of Bashan oppress the needy and demand wine from their husbands; they will be taken away with fishhooks; sacrifices at Bethel and Gilgal are in vain; rain will be withheld; all teeth shall be bread because of lack of bread; Israel will suffer blight and mildew; God asserts Himself the former of mountains and the Creator of winds.

Amos 5 - The virgin of Israel has fallen (its people will be taken captive); the Lord who made the stars invites Israel to seek Him; but not in the vain places of sacrifice such as Gilgal, Bathel, and Beersheba; Israel perverts justice and treads down the poor; there will be wailing and woe in the day of the Lord; feast days, sacred assemblies, and sacrifices are dismissed.

Amos 6 - Woe to you who are at ease in Zion and trust in Mount Samaria; woe to those who live lives of luxury; lying on beds if ivory; when a relative of one of the dead comes to burn the corpses, should he find one person still alive, that person will not permit him to mention the name of the Lord for fear that the Lord will turn His wrath on him; justice has been turned to gall and righteousness to wormwood.

Amos 7 - Amos sees a vision of locusts and a vision of fire; the Lord is deaf to Amos’ entreaties that Jacob may be spared; there is a further vision of a plumb line; Amaziah speaks against Amos; Amos replies that he is a mere sheep-breeder; the Lord decrees Amaziah’s punishment; his wife shall be a harlot; your sons and daughters shall fall by the sword; you shall die in a defiled land.

Amos 8 - Amos has a vision of summer fruit; the end has come on Israel; the time for summer fruit is short and so is the time left for Israel; dishonesty and cheating the poor is rebuked; the sky will be darkened and feasts turned to mourning; a famine shall afflict the land.

Amos 9 - Amos has a vision of the Lord at the temple supervising the work of destruction; judgment is totally inescapable; the Lord will sift the house of Israel as grain is sifted in a sieve; those who think they will be unaffected by the calamity will die by the sword; the tabernacle of David will be repaired and restored; the captives of Israel will be restored and fruit and wine shall be abundant; Israel will be planted in the land and no longer pulled up.


Obadiah 1 -

Edom will be made small among the nations; it shall be brought down though it ascends as high as an eagle; the judgment against Edom will be complete; Edom has exulted in the destruction of its brother Jacob; as you have done, it shall be done to you; the house of Jacob shall be a fire and the house of Joseph a flame; but the house of Esau shall be stubble; the children of Israel shall possess the land of the Canaanites; saviors shall come to Mount Zion to judge the mountains of Esau; the kingdom shall be the Lord’s; the heathen will be as though they had never been.


Jonah 1 - Jonah is told to cry against Nineveh; he flees on a ship going to Tarshish; the Lord sends a tempest; Jonah is asleep; the mariners cast lots to ascertain who it is who is responsible for the tempest; it is Jonah; Jonah suggests they throw him overboard; the mariners are reluctant to resort to this extreme measure but do so when the tempest does not abate; they pray that they may not perish because of Jonah as they throw him overboard; the sea is calmed; a great fish swallows up Jonah; Jonah is in its belly for three days and three nights.

Jonah 2 - Jonah prays within the belly of the fish; Jonah describes the waters compassing him about; the fish vomits out Jonah onto dry land.

Jonah 3 - Jonah is again told to cry against Nineveh; he does so; Nineveh immediately and wholeheartedly repents with ashes and sackcloth; God decides not to destroy Nineveh.

Jonah 4 - Jonah is upset about God choosing to not destroy Nineveh; he leaves the city and sits in the hot sun where God causes a plant to grow to provide shade for Jonah; the next day God sends a worm to kill the plant; Jonah then says it would be better for him to die; God questions Jonah’s anger about the death of the plant; God asks him why he thinks a plant should be spared from destruction but a large city like Nineveh should not be saved.


Micah 1 - The word of the Lord comes to Micah in the reigns of Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah of Judah; the Lord will tread down the high places; the mountains will melt under Him and the valleys will split like wax before the fire; like waters poured down a steep place; Samaria will be left desolate in judgment because of its idolatrous harlotry; Micah will wail and howl like animals going naked; the surrounding nations will know of Israel’s shame; Micah makes himself bald.

Micah 2 - Woe to those that devise iniquity; they covet property and seize it by violence; the Lord will take away the heritage of these people; God’s people reject the word of His prophets; false prophets prophesy days of wine and drink; a remnant of Israel shall be restored; gathered like sheep at the hands of one who breaks open.

Micah 3 - The heads of Jacob commit sadistic acts of violence against their own people; these heads will cry to the Lord but the Lord will not hear them; darkness will descend on false prophets; Micah declares confidently that he is a true prophet; Zion shall be plowed like a field; Jerusalem shall become heaps of ruins and the mountain of the temple like the bare hills of the forest.

Micah 4 - In the latter days Zion will be at the centre of a renewed earth; the Lord shall judge between many nations; swords shall be made into ploughshares and spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation; everyone in the restored Zion shall walk in the name of the Lord; the lame, the outcast, and the afflicted will be part of a strong nation; cry like a woman in pangs for you will be taken to Babylon; you will be restored; the nations who exult in Zion’s humiliation will be threshed.

Micah 5 - One Who is to be a ruler shall come forth from Bethlehem; He shall stand and feed his flock in the strength of the Lord; He will deliver Jacob from Assyria; the remnant is large and triumphs over its enemies; the Lord will cut off sorceries, soothsayers, and idols.

Micah 6 - Hear, O you mountains, the Lord’s complaint; the Lord reminds the people of His favor towards them and complains of their ingratitude; the people are imagined replying and complaining of the Lord’s demanding nature; will the Lord be pleased with a thousand rams, and the sacrifice of a firstborn as a sin offering; Micah retorts that the Lord has revealed to them what He wants; justice, mercy, and humility; Hear the Rod; the use of deceitful weights and measures is rebuked; you will be made a desolation.

Micah 7 - The Lord compares Himself to a gatherer of fruit who can find no ripe cluster of grapes; all have been corrupted; family and other social relationships will crumble; enemies should not rejoice; the Lord will be a light to me; a female enemy will be trampled like mud in the streets; the Lord will shepherd His people with His staff; other nations shall be brought low and lick the dust like a serpent; Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage.


Nahum 1 - The burden against Nineveh; God is jealous, angry, and vengeful; the Lord has His way in the whirlwind and in the storm; the clouds are the dust of His feet; He knows those who trust in Him; the mountains quake before Him and the hills melt; a wicked counselor amongst you plots evil against the Lord; though the enemy may seem safe, yet the Lord will afflict them; the Lord will cut off idols and dig your grave; for you are vile; O Judah, keep your appointed feasts.

Nahum 2 - A call to battle is made; the Lord will restore the excellence of Jacob; chariots rage in the streets; but the Assyrians are led away captive; Assyria drains away like a pool of water; the Lord will burn the Assyrians chariots in smoke.

Nahum 3 - Woe to the bloody city; there is a further description of the chaotic bustle of battle; Nineveh is punished because of its harlotries and sorceries; Nineveh’s nakedness will be shown to the nations; as the Assyrians destroyed No Amon (Thebes) in Egypt so Assyria itself will be destroyed and humiliated; as ripe figs fall from a shaken tree so will the strongholds of Nineveh fall before the judgment of God; the inhabitants of Nineveh are as numerous as locusts; destruction shall still ensue and all who hear of Nineveh’s defeat shall clap their hands.


Habakkuk 1 - Habakkuk asks God why He seems to delay judgment against the wicked; the Lord is raising up the Chaldeans; their horses also are swifter than leopards and more fierce than evening wolves; they gather captives like sand scoffing at kings and princes; when the Babylonians overwhelm the land of Judah they will wrongly give the credit to their false gods; Habakkuk wonders why God would use a nation more wicked than Judah to bring judgment on Judah; Habakkuk will stand his watch and wait for God’s reply.

Habakkuk 2 - The Lord tells Habakkuk to write the reply down; the proud are not upright; the just shall live by faith; Babylon has an insatiable desire for conquest; they shall be plundered by the remnant of those they plundered; woe to the greedy, the violent, the drunk, and the idolatrous; the Lord is in His Holy Temple; let all the earth keep silence before Him.

Habakkuk 3 - Habakkuk pleads for revival; there is a song of praise glorifying God’s power over the earth and the nations; Habakkuk is afraid; he resolves to rejoice in the Lord; the Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet; He will make me walk on my high hills; to the Chief Musician; with my stringed instruments.


Zephaniah 1 - Zephaniah was the great-great grandson of Hezekiah; he prophesied in the days of Josiah; the Lord says He will utterly consume everything from the face of the land; judgment is promised to idolaters; the day of the Lord is at hand; in the day of the Lord’s sacrifice He will punish the princes and the king’s children; those who wear foreign apparel and those who practice violence and deceit; the merchants will be cut down and will be complacent; the day of the Lord will be characterized by darkness, gloominess, cloud, trumpet, and alarm; the Lord will make a speedy riddance.

Zephaniah 2 - Gather yourselves; seek righteousness and humility while there is still time; you may be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger; God promises to destroy the cities of the Philistines and give their land as pasture for the remnant of the house of Judah; Moab shall be like Sodom and Ammon like the people of Gomorrah; the Lord will reduce all the gods of the earth to nothing; people from all shores shall worship Him; Ethiopians will be slain by the sword and the Assyrians will de destroyed on account of their pride.

Zephaniah 3 - Jerusalem is rebellious and polluted; the Lord is righteous in Jerusalem’s midst; having poured His indignation on nations the Lord will give the world a common language with which it will worship Him; Israel will no longer be haughty on God’s Holy mountain; the outcast and needy will be marginalized no more and Jerusalem will be given fame and praise among all the peoples of the earth when the captives are restored.


Haggai 1 - In the second year of Darius the Word of the Lord comes via Haggai to Zerubbabel (governor of Jerusalem) and Joshua (the high priest); the Lord complains that the people say it is not time for the temple to be finished; the Lord criticizes the procrastination and lack of progress; the houses of individuals are in working order but the House of the Lord is not; go up to the mountains and bring wood; the people act on God’s Words via Haggai.

Haggai 2 - The Lord confronts the anxiety that the current Temple is far less impressive than Solomon’s; Haggai questions the priests; will food touched by a garment that carries holy meat be made likewise holy; if a dead body touches any of these will it be rendered impure; holiness is not contagious; but impurity is; living in the holy land and offering sacrifices does not make one holy so long as they are unclean through neglect of the Lord; a recent drought is seen as a consequence of the people’s refusal to build the Temple; God sees their change of heart and promises a harvest of blessing to come; the Lord speaks to Zerubbabel via Haggai; the gentile nations will be overcome; Zerubbabel will be made the Lord’s signet ring.


Zechariah 1 - The word came to Zechariah in the second year of Darius; God orders his people to return to Him and not to follow the example of their fathers; Zechariah has a vision of a man on a red horse among myrtle trees in a ravine; behind him were red, sorrel (off yellow), and white horses; they are a patrol which has found that the earth is at peace; God is angry with the nations at ease because they assisted in Judah’s and Jerusalem’s suffering; the Lord’s House will be built in Jerusalem and comfort Zion; Zechariah has a vision of four horns symbolizing the four nations that scattered God’s people; craftsmen are coming to terrify them and cast them out.
Zechariah 2 - Zechariah has a vision of a man with a measuring line going to measure out Jerusalem; the Lord will provide a wall of fire around Jerusalem and be the glory in her midst; exiles are exhorted to return from the north; he who touches God’s people touches the apple of His eye; sin and rejoice, O daughter of Zion; when the Lord dwells in the midst of Jerusalem many nations shall be drawn unto Him.

Zechariah 3 - Joshua the high priest stands before the Lord; Satan also stands before the Lord to oppose Joshua; the Lord rebukes Satan; Joshua’s filthy garments are removed and he is given clean garments; Joshua is told that if he walks in the Lord’s ways he will judge His house; the Lord says He is bringing forth His servant The Branch; a stone is laid before Joshua which has seven eyes; the iniquity of the land will be removed and everyone will invite his neighbor under his vine and under his fig tree.

Zechariah 4 - Zechariah has a vision of a lamp-stand; next to which there are two olive trees that supplied the seven lamps with oil through seven pipes; Zerubbabel will accomplish the work of rebuilding the temple through the Lord’s Spirit; encouragement is given; the two olive trees represent the two anointed ones who stand beside the Lord of the whole earth.

Zechariah 5 - Zechariah has a vision of a flying scroll; twenty cubits by ten; on it are written curses against thieves and perjurers; wickedness is personified as a woman sitting in a basket; an angel thrusts down the woman and places a lead covering over the top of the basket; two winged women take the basket to Babylon.

Zechariah 6 - Zechariah has a vision of four chariots coming between two mountains of bronze; they go before the Lord; those who go toward the north country have given rest to the Lord’s Spirit in the north country; Joshua receives a crown of gold and silver; The Branch shall build the Temple of the Lord; the crown will be a memorial in the temple.

Zechariah 7 - Zechariah explains a proper fast to the Lord.  In the fourth year of Darius the people ask if they should weep and fast in the fifth month to commemorate the destruction of the first temple; the Lord rebukes the practice of fasting for being perfunctory; justice, mercy, and compassion are more important; this is why the people were scattered.

Zechariah 8 - The Lord says He is zealous for Zion with great zeal; the Lord will return to Zion and dwell in the midst of Jerusalem; Jerusalem will be a thriving, safe place; more people will return from the east and the west; encouragement is given to finish the Temple; Judah was a curse; but it shall become a blessing; the Lord is as determined to bless now as He was to punish in the past; act righteously to one another; feasting is now more appropriate than the appointed fasting times.

Zechariah 9 - Burden against the cities of Lebanon and the Philistines; a lowly King riding on a donkey shall come into Jerusalem; He shall speak peace to the nations; His dominion shall be from sea to sea; the blood of the covenant will set prisoners free from the waterless pit; Judah and Ephraim are the bow and arrow to be drawn against Greece; grain shall make the young men thrive and new wine the young women.

Zechariah 10 - The Lord will grant showers of rain; the people of God will conquer; while idolaters will be led astray like sheep; the houses of both Judah and Jerusalem will be brought back; Israel will be gathered into the land from across the earth.

Zechariah 11 - Creation mourns because of the coming judgment; Zechariah is told to ready a flock of sheep for slaughter as the Lord will do with His people; particularly those who are rich and complacent; Zechariah’s two staffs are called Beauty and Bonds; Zechariah dismisses three shepherds and breaks the staff called Beauty; playing the role of a shepherd Zechariah is paid what he sarcastically calls a princely sum of thirty pieces of silver; which he gives to the potter; Zechariah breaks the staff called Bonds to symbolize the severance of Judah and Israel; Zechariah is told to take the implements of a foolish shepherd to indicate that the Lord will raise up a shepherd in the land who will not care for those who are cut off; woe to the worthless shepherd who leaves the flock.

Zechariah 12 - Jerusalem will be protected from attack by the Lord; it will be a cup of drunkenness and a heavy stone to surrounding peoples; the feeble shall become be like David and the house of David shall be like God; the spirit of grace and supplication will be poured on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem; they will look on Me Whom they pierced; all Jerusalem will humbly repent.

Zechariah 13 - A fountain shall cleanse sin; idolatry and false prophets will not be tolerated; the man accused of being a false prophet insists the scars on his body are not the self-inflicted wounds often associated with false prophets but merely the result of a brawl in his friend’s house; the Lord calls for the swords to be struck against His Shepherd Who is His companion; Israel will be scattered, smitten, refined, and saved.

Zechariah 14 - The Day of the Lord is coming; when Jerusalem will be attacked; half of the city will be taken off into captivity; the remnant shall not be cut off; the Lord will fight against the nations that attack; the Mount of Olives will be split in two; allowing escape; living waters shall flow from Jerusalem which will be safely inhabited; the enemies of Jerusalem and their livestock will be stricken with plague; all nations shall come to Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles; plague and no rain will be the punishment for those families who do not attend; Holiness to the Lord shall be engraved on the balls of the horses and every pot in Jerusalem shall become like the bowls before the altar; the profane becomes holy.


Malachi 1 - I have loved you, the Lord says to Israel; Jacob has been loved, Esau hated, Edom has been laid waste; despite resolving to return and rebuild Edom will become known as the Territory of Wickedness; sacrifices of defiled and blemished food are condemned; the Lord’s name shall be great among the gentiles.

Malachi 2 - God will curse the wicked priesthood and its descendants; the good example of Levi, with whom a covenant was made, is cited; there is a woeful failure to live up to Levi’s good precedent; the priests offend by marrying foreign wives; the neglected and divorced wives of the priests come and weep at God’s altar; when their priestly husbands then offer sacrifice at the same altar it offends God; there is grumbling that the wicked prosper more than the Godly.

Malachi 3 - A messenger will come to prepare the way; then another messenger will come to His Temple; who can endure the day of His Coming; He will purify the sons of Levi; the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will once more be acceptable to the Lord; sorcerers, perjurers, and other sinners will be witnessed against; return to the Lord; God has been robbed by the withholding of tithes and offerings; the people have grumbled that the proud and the wicked prosper and that it is therefore useless to serve God; a Book of Remembrance is written for those who fear the Lord; they will be the Lord’s jewels; the distinction between the righteous and the wicked will become evident.

Malachi 4 - The day is coming which will burn like an oven; The Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; the wicked shall be trampled; remember the law of Moses; Elijah will be sent before the Day of the Lord; he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the hearts of the children to their fathers.




That Jesus Christ should be found on every page is a fact.  If you do not find Jesus on any page, attempt to read the page again.


The Book of Genesis = The account of the first Adam and his fall and the consequences of that fall.  While Jesus represents the second Adam and how He will redeem the errors of the first Adam.


The Book of Exodus = The account of Moses redeeming his people from Satanic influences and slavery, by reason of a man who was drawn out of waters, moved to the wilderness for 40 years, and then returns to deliver his people.  Jesus was baptized in water, is tempted for 40 days in the wilderness, then begins the process of redeeming His people.


The Book of Leviticus = This Book is about the high priest cleansing his people from their sins.  Jesus is our High Priest Who cleanses His people from their sins.


The Book of Numbers = This Book is about Moses leading the 12 tribes of Israel and calling the 70 elders.  Jesus leads the 12 disciples and ordains 70.


The Book of Deuteronomy = This Book is about Moses’ final sermon, in which he calls together all of the 12 tribes, repeats the covenant, goes out into the wilderness to die by himself, and then he dies, is buried, and then is resurrected.  Jesus, before He is to die, calls together the 12 apostles at what is called “The last supper,” then He repeats the covenant, goes out to die alone, and He does die, is buried, and is resurrected.


The Book of Joshua = This Book is the account of Israel pushing out Satan from the promised land, starting with a loud shout.  Jesus kicked Satan out of Heaven and now it is time to kick Satan out of control of the earth with His loud shout, “It is finished.”


The Book of Judges = This Book is about the 12 tribes of Israel going out to conquer the promised land without the physical leadership of one man.  Jesus, being resurrected, is no longer physically leading the 12 apostles; but they go out to conquer by spreading the Gospel to the known world.


The Book of Ruth = This Book is about a gentile woman with a Hebrew mother-in-law.  And this Gentile woman is working in the field, bringing in the sheaves.  And Boaz, who is a type of Christ, watches over her.  And by the way, Ruth says to her mother-in-law, “Your God will be my God.”  Jesus watches over His Gentile converts who are spreading the Gospel.


The Book of First Samuel = This Book is about the nation of Israel rejecting the priesthood (Samuel), and wanting an earthly king to rule over them instead.  As it turns out, this became a joining of Church and state.  By the time of Constantine (about 300 A.D.), the church joined its forces with the state.  Note:  But there has always remained a remnant Church somewhere throughout history.    


The Books of Second Samuel; First & Second Kings and Chronicles = All these detail Israel’s apostacies.  Which lead them to be captured by a nation called, “Mystery, Babylon,” i.e., pagan Rome, then Papal Rome.  Note:  This chronicles the 1260-year period of earths history, i.e., 538 A.D. to 1798 A.D.


The Book of Ezra = This Book contains three decrees that were issued on Israel’s behalf.  The first decree brought attention to the Sanctuary.  In 1844 A.D. Jesus leaves the ministry in the Holy Place of the Heavenly Sanctuary, moving into the Most Holy Place of the Heavenly sanctuary.  The second decree was pronounced against the enemies of God’s people.  This correlates to the Second Angels message against Babylon.  The third decree was for Israel to become its own nation with its own laws and religious system under protection of the ruling nation.  This correlates to the Third Angels message when the Seventh-Day Adventist Church was formed under the protection of the United States of America.


The Book of Nehemiah = In this Book is found the fourth decree.  Under the work of the Third Angels message much has been done.  But many have fallen and Christ has not come.  Nehemiah was sent to finish what was started but not finished.  And under the sounding of the Fourth Angle (of Revelation 18), a “loud cry” will be given and the work will be finished.


The Book of Esther = This Book is about a “Death Decree” given against the people of God, during the “Time of Trouble,” who refuse to keep the laws of the government, just before the Coming of Christ.  Note:  Since Mordecai would not bow to Haman, he went after Mordecai’s people.  And since Jesus would not bow to Satan, Satan is going after Jesus’ people.


The Book of Job = This Book covers the “Time of Trouble.”


The Book of Psalms = This Book is the One most referred to Book that people go to read when they are going through a “Time of Trouble.”


The Books of Proverbs & Ecclesiastes = These Books are about obtaining “wisdom.”  And “wisdom” is what God’s people will need in order to go through till the end of time on earth.


The Book of Song of Solomon = This Book is about the bridegroom coming for his bride.  Jesus will Come for His bride.


The Books of the Major Prophets = All relate the Comings of Christ and the setting up of His millennial Kingdom.


The Books of the Minor Prophets = All relate the “justice” of God throughout this entire process, and the judgments that will be discussed during the millennial period and eventually carried out after that period.  Thus, ending with the wicked being “ashes under the souls of the redeems feet.”


The Books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, & John = These Books talk about how that then Christ will truly be with us (Mat. 1:21) throughout eternity.


The Book of Acts = This Book talks about the people of God being united into one Church.  The people of God will be united in one language in Heaven.


The Books of the Churches = These Books speak about Jews, Gentiles, rich, poor, different nations and nationalities, tongues, whatever, all are united into one big happy family.


The Book of Revelation = This Book is to be studied throughout all eternity, for it is about and for all eternity.
