Joshua 5:13-6:27; Isaiah 2:1-22; Luke 22:1-30

A stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. John 10:5
I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil. Romans 16:19

Darby said, “The sheep…know His voice. There are many other voices, but the sheep do not know them. Their safety consists, not in knowing them all, but in knowing that they are not the one voice which is life to them—the voice of Jesus. All the rest are the voices of strangers”. Safety is familiarity with the Good Shepherd. Sheep should ask one question, “Is that my Shepherd’s voice?”. —J. A. Bjorlie

O Lamb of God! Still keep me near to Thy wounded side;
’Tis only there in safety and peace I can abide
. —J. G. Deck
