Jonah is Thrown Overboard

Morning

Leaning on Jesus' bosom.

As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you.-- They brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and [his] disciples rebuked those that brought [them].--And he took them up in his arms, put [his] hands upon them, and blessed them.--Jesus called his disciples [unto him], and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.--An high priest . . . touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin.--In his love and in his pity he redeemed them.

I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.--Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.

The Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Evening

Jesus Christ the righteous: . . . the propitiation for our sins.

Toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be. And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee. And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat.

Surely his salvation [is] nigh them that fear him; . . . Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed [each other].

If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? But [there is] forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.--Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD [there is] mercy, and with him [is] plenteous redemption. And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.--All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: whom God hath set forth [to be] a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins.
