Jesus saith unto her, Mary

Daily Light Devotions - May 20 - Evening

Jesus saith unto her, Mary.

Jesus said to her, "Mary." She turned and said to him in Aramaic, "Rabboni!" (which means Teacher). 1

But now thus says the LORD, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. 2

To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. 3

Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me. 4

But God's firm foundation stands, bearing this seal: "The Lord knows those who are his," and, "Let everyone who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity." 5

Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 6

You shall take two onyx stones, and engrave on them the names of the sons of Israel, And you shall set the two stones on the shoulder pieces of the ephod, as stones of remembrance for the sons of Israel. And Aaron shall bear their names before the LORD on his two shoulders for remembrance. "You shall make a breastpiece of judgment, in skilled work. In the style of the ephod you shall make it--of gold, blue and purple and scarlet yarns, and fine twined linen shall you make it. You shall set in it four rows of stones. A row of sardius, topaz, and carbuncle shall be the first row; There shall be twelve stones with their names according to the names of the sons of Israel. They shall be like signets, each engraved with its name, for the twelve tribes. And in the breastpiece of judgment you shall put the Urim and the Thummim, and they shall be on Aaron's heart, when he goes in before the LORD. Thus Aaron shall bear the judgment of the people of Israel on his heart before the LORD regularly. 7
