Devotional Readings, M'Cheyne Bible Reading Notes

Isaiah 60 and Matthew 8:1  When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.

This chapter is profoundly poetic and is a good complement to reading about Moses, the Law and now the prophets. Every piece of God’s word is useful.

2Ti 3:16  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and isprofitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

2Ti 3:17  That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

If you want more, go back and look at my earlier posts today.

Deuteronomy 33:26  There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky.

Psalms 119:152  Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever.

Family: Deuteronomy 33–34; Psalm 119:145–176. Secret: Isaiah 60; Matthew 8. (King James Version)

Here is the entire text read today by Max McLean.

I don’t always read the last chapter since it is on the repeating cycle, M’Cheyne is using..

But the first verse in Matthew 8 is appropriate, as Jesus himself has just finished teaching the truth about the Law and Prophets.

Mat 8:1  When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.

Mat 8:2  And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

Mat 8:3  And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

Mat 8:4  And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

An obvious link between the teaching of the law and the works of active faith.

As for the 60th Chapter of Isaiah it begins this way, enjoy listening to it read in the above link. If you wish, skip through the whole Psalm 119 reading…but it’s worth going through it entirely in one reading also.

Isa 60:1  Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.

Isa 60:2  For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

Isa 60:3  And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
