DAY ONE HUNDRED NINE — Leviticus 24, Psalms 31

Lev 24

Here are more laws for our fellow Israelites and Aaronites (don’t judge me). So we start this chapter with the lamps that are in front of the veil. Remember them Exodus? Well they are back. The LORD commands that the lamps would stay lit regularly and that they will be a statue for them. Aaron (or the Aaronites) had to arrange the oil on the lamp [and stuff], regularly for generations to come.

Next up is bread for the Tabernacle. Twelve loaves were commanded for the Tabernacle and were a portion of the food offering. Aaron had to arrange this bread every sabbath and it was a covenant for the Israelites fo-eva.

Blasphemy is up in the next verses. There’s a little story about a mom, a dad, and their a son. But things don’t get happy after ever. The son blasphemed God’s name in a fight with an Israelite. The son is taken hold for a trial and they wait on the LORD for an answer. So He answers, “Whoever blasphemes the name of the Lord shall surely be put to death. All the congregation shall stone him. The sojourner as well as the native, when he blasphemes the Name, shall be put to death.” His name is Holy and if you ask me putting someone to death because they Blasphemed His name is pretty much what one deserves. But God, even though it’s His name, He forgives.

Next up we have what I think would be the most basic form of (I guess) judicial law. “Whoever takes a human life shall surely be put to death.” There simple. And also a principle that still carries over to our generation. Even though it may seem simple it is effective. And so the rest of the last verses of this chapter.

Psalm 31

Today for this Psalm I may not go into much detail. I will say though that I can totally see the Christology (I hope that’s the right term) on this Psalm. Perhaps a shadow, I may add, about our Lord Jesus Christ and His life. So all I will add is wow, go read this Psalm 🙂
