The Bible Challenge: Day 173

The scriptures read are Nehemiah 13, Psalm 141 and 1 Corinthians 16.

Nehemiah 13. Nehemiah goes to Persia to brief the king and everything falls apart while he's gone. When he returns to Jerusalem he has to fix things up again. So not much has changed.

Psalm 141. A prayer for protection against sinning.

1 Corinthians 16. Paul wraps up his letter with a few odds and ends: the offering for relief of poor Christians in Jerusalem, plans for a long visit soon, news about Timothy visiting and possibly Apollos, greetings from friends and a line written by Paul himself.

You have now finished 16 Old Testament books. You are almost done with the historical books and about to get into the Wisdom books. You've also finished 7 New Testament books. And the end of Psalms is coming soon. Just 22 OT and 20 NT books to go at this time. In a little over a week the year of reading the Bible will be at the mid-point. Keep up the good work!
