Leviticus 27:1-34; Psalms 142:1-143:12; Mark 11:1-26

The question asked by the psalmist can be applied to our day. The entire globe has descended into a pit of chaos and darkness: socially, morally and politically.

When our Lord will come in power, and glory from on high! —D. W. Whittle

His blood, before it is too late. “After this [death] the Judgment” (Hebrews 9:27, KJV). —W. H. Burnett
