GN-Day275 2 Chronicles 28; Ecclesiastes 4; Matthew 18:1-20

Yesterday we heard of the reign of Uzziah (who suffered a terrible punishment for his pride) and the reign of his son, Jotham. Both were basically good kings.

Yesterday we heard the famous chapter of Ecclesiastes which starts with

Ecc. 3:1 (like NLT) For everything (turn, turn, turn) there is a season, (turn, turn, turn) a time for every activity under heaven.

GNT is very perceptive in bringing out some implicit information that would have been understood by Solomon’s audience, but which modern readers could easily miss in NLT’s translation, namely that God sets the seasons:

Ecc. 3:1 GNT Everything that happens in this world happens at the time God chooses.
2 He sets the time for birth and the time for death,
the time for planting and the time for pulling up,

Yesterday in Matthew 17 we heard the story of the mount of transfiguration, the shorter story of the healing of the demon possessed boy right afterward, and we ended with Peter catching a fish to pay the temple tax for him and Jesus.

GNT Translation notes:
Mat. 18:1 At that time [we//the] disciples came to Jesus, asking, “Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven?”
2 So Jesus called a child to come and stand in front of [us//them],
6 “If anyone should cause one of these little ones to [stop believing//lose his faith] in me, it would be better for that person to have a large millstone tied around his neck and be drowned in the deep sea.
7 How terrible for the world that there are things that make people [stop believing in me//lose their faith]! Such things will always happen—but how terrible for the one who causes them!  
8 “If your hand or your foot makes you [stop believing//lose your faith], cut it off and throw it away! It is better for you to enter life without a hand or a foot than to keep both hands and both feet and be thrown into the eternal fire.
9 And if your eye makes you [stop believing//lose your faith], take it out and throw it away! It is better for you to enter life with only one eye than to keep both eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.
20 For where two or three [of you] come together [because you want to glorify Me//in my name], I am there with [you//them].”
