2KINGS 11-12:

Yesterday's story was of Jehu, anointed on Elisha's orders, and who executed the Lord's vengeance on Ahab and his whole family, and even his friends and the worshipers of Baal. However, after that, he still didn't follow the Lord but continued the idolatry of Israel.

PSALM 128:

Today’s Song of Ascent has a similar theme about the Lord’s blessings for families as yesterday’s psalm, Psalm 127.

JOHN 13a:

Jesus’ words often have a double meaning. An example was heard yesterday when He said, “when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself.”

GNT Translation note:

13:2 Jesus and his disciples were at supper. The Devil had already put into the heart of Judas[0//, the son of Simon Iscariot,] the thought of betraying Jesus. [He was the son of Simon, (the one) from the village of Carioth.//0]
