Thank you to all who sent in questions. This week someone wanted a clarification of a verse from last week and this was tremendously useful in framing the discussion for this week. Therefore, do not be shy about asking questions even about things that are not directly related to this weeks reading.

The session from this week can be found here.

The reading for next week is Psalm 68(69). In case there is confusion over the difference in the LXX and Masoretic numbering, the Psalm begins with the verse, “Save me, O God, for the waters flood my soul.”

This Psalm is quoted by John in John 2:17. I did not touch upon this in the session from this week because I think it deserves its own session.
