Inheritance … Shepherd of Israel enthroned between the cherubim … precious cornerstone for a sure foundation.
Today’s reading brings to mind Christian’s profession, “If he came not to abolish but to fulfill, both sides of my Bible can attest to his character!”
A tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed. I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line; Isaiah 28:16-17 (NIV).
Isaiah 28 tells of drunkenness; of covenants with death; and the injurious, ensnaring, falling-backwards of the “do and do, rule on rule, a little here and there” footnoted babble–excerpted, nearly impossible to tell the year this was written … 701 BC or 2010.
Restore us, O Lord God Almighty; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved. Psalm 80:19 (NIV)
Because of Him, precious cornerstone and foundation, I am restored and saved. He is timeless.
