Thought for Thursday 27th January 

Nehemiah 8:2 

“So on the first day of the seventh month Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly, which was made up of men and women and all who were able to understand.”

Very unusually, the text mentions “men and women”, emphasising that - very surprisingly - both sexes were present. It seems that Ezra read in Hebrew, but most people spoke Aramaic - hence the reference to “all who were able to understand.”

Reflection: Today is perhaps a wonderful day to thank God for the way his Word is available to us in so many translations, and to pray for the ongoing work of Bible Societies to make it available to everyone in the world.
