day 30 (trek 2): put a psalm in my heart

Psalm 78 is what we read and write about today.

Let’s read Ps. 78.1-8 this morning, Ps. 78.9-58 around mid-day, and Ps. 78.59-72 tonight. As for me, I’ll sketch some heads of grain in my Bible’s margin to help me remember this psalm.

“… he commanded the skies above and opened the doors of heaven, and he rained down on them manna to eat and gave them the grain of heaven. Man ate of the bread of the angels; he sent them food in abundance.” (Ps. 78.23-24)

This passage is referenced by a crowd to Jesus on one occasion and results in his declaring that he himself is “the bread of life.” (cf. John 6.30-35)
