The Old Testament was the Bible used by our Lord when He was here; it was also the Bible of the early church as it spread the gospel of the grace of God across the Near East. This Day by Day, though necessarily selective in the text considered, is intended to promote a wider reading, and a more fruitful understanding of the whole of the Old Testament. It was the Psalmist who wrote: “How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Ps. 119:103-105). May this be the experience of every reader!
