The Treasures Appointed to 12 Leaders
Today's Passage: Ezra 8: 24-30
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the chapter NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
24. I appointed twelve leaders of the priests ⏤
Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and ten other priests
25. to be in charge of transporting the silver, the gold, the gold bowls, and the other items that the king, his council, his officials, and all the people of Israel had presented for the Temple of God.
26. I weighed the treasure as I gave it to them and found the totals to be as follows:
24 tons of silver,
7,500 pounds of silver articles
7,500 pounds of gold,
27. 20 gold bowls, equal in value to 1,000 gold coins
2 fine articles of polished bronze, as precious as gold.
28. And I said to these priests. "You and these treasure have been set apart as holy to the Lord. This silver and gold is a voluntary offering to the Lord, the God of our ancestors.
29. Guard these treasures well until you present them to the leading priests, the Levites, and
the leaders of Israel, who will weigh them at the storerooms of the Lord's Temple in Jerusalem."
30. So the priests and the Levites accepted the task of transporting these treasure of silver and gold to the Temple of our God in Jerusalem.
Ezra 8:24-30 NLT
They are part of life.
Please give thought to what the jobs are and why.
Take time to ask God why they were set apart?
Are you set apart?
For what and why?
Thank you for making jobs important.
Thank you for being aware that we can find purpose in them.
Give us what you would have for us to see in this passage.
In your holy name
Jehoshua I ask,
Please leave your name and your last initial in the comments.
Looking forward to what God does with this seemingly mundane passage.
