Daily we live in death’s shadow. Thankfully, the kingdom of heaven is just as near.

BibleGateway: Matthew 4:12-17

ESV Text: Matthew 4:12-17



KJV Text:

The section starts at about 1:22 and ends at about 2:10

     12 Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee; 13 And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim: 14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, 15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles; 16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. 17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 436:
The Lord’s My Shepherd

— Organ Audio


1. The Lord’s my Shepherd, I’ll not want; 
He makes me down to lie 
In pastures green; He leadeth me 
The quiet waters by. 

2. My soul He doth restore again 
And me to walk doth make 
Within the paths of righteousness, 
E’en for His own name’s sake. 

3. Yea, tho’ I walk in death’s dark vale, 
Yet will I fear no ill; 
For Thou art with me, and Thy rod 
And staff me comfort still. 

4. My table Thou hast furnished 
In presence of my foes; 
My head Thou dost with oil anoint, 
And my cup overflows. 

5. Goodness and mercy, all my life, 
Shall surely follow me; 
And in God’s house forevermore 
My dwelling place shall be.
