EXODUS 17-18:
Yesterday we heard the wonderful victory song of Moses. Then we heard how the people of Israel grumbled against Moses, Aaron, and most importantly, the Lord. Even about something as simple as gathering manna, the people of Israel disobey repeatedly. They are not called stubborn for nothing.

JOB 39:
God continues for a second chapter in challenging Job.

Yesterday it struck me that even in Peter's day, there were greedy false teachers. Peter's descriptions of the false teachers are some of the most colorful in the Bible.

NLT Translation notes:

[I have//He has]  given her no understanding.
2Ptr. 3:8 [But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: One of the Lord’s days lasts a thousand years. And to the Lord, a thousand years [seems only like a day has passed.//But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day.]
2Ptr. 3:17 [Newer NLT: You already know these things, dear friends. So//NLT96: Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned,] be on guard; then you will not be carried away by the errors of these wicked people and lose your own secure footing.
