jefffrandsen He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

jefffrandsen In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s house will be established at the top of the mountains and will be raised above the hills. Peoples will stream to it, and many nations will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us about His ways so we may walk in His paths.” For instruction will go out of Zion and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

jefffrandsen Jonah left the city and sat down east of it. He made himself a shelter there and sat in its shade to see what would happen to the city. Then the Lord God appointed a plant, and it grew up to provide shade over Jonah’s head to ease his discomfort. Jonah was greatly pleased with the plant. When dawn came the next day, God appointed a worm that attacked the plant, and it withered. As the sun was rising, God appointed a scorching east wind. The sun beat down so much on Jonah’s head that he almost fainted, and he wanted to die. He said, “It’s better for me to die than to live.” Then God asked Jonah, “Is it right for you to be angry about the plant? ” “Yes,” he replied. “It is right. I’m angry enough to die! ” So the Lord said, “You cared about the plant, which you did not labor over and did not grow. It appeared in a night and perished in a night. Should I not care about the great city of Nineveh, which has more than 120,000 people who cannot distinguish between their right and their left, as well as many animals? ”

jefffrandsen Then the Lord commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land. Then the word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time: “Get up! Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach the message that I tell you.” So Jonah got up and went to Nineveh according to the Lord’s command.

jefffrandsen Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from inside the fish: I called to the Lord in my distress, and He answered me. I cried out for help in the belly of Sheol; You heard my voice. You threw me into the depths, into the heart of the seas, and the current overcame me. All Your breakers and Your billows swept over me. But I said: I have been banished from Your sight, yet I will look once more toward Your holy temple. The waters engulfed me up to the neck; the watery depths overcame me; seaweed was wrapped around my head. I sank to the foundations of the mountains; the earth with its prison bars closed behind me forever! But You raised my life from the Pit, Lord my God! As my life was fading away, I remembered Yahweh. My prayer came to You, to Your holy temple. Those who cling to worthless idols forsake faithful love, but as for me, I will sacrifice to You with a voice of thanksgiving. I will fulfill what I have vowed. Salvation is from the Lord!

jefffrandsen For the Day of the Lord is near, against all the nations. As you have done, so it will be done to you; what you deserve will return on your own head. As you have drunk on My holy mountain, so all the nations will drink continually. They will drink and gulp down and be as though they had never been. But there will be a deliverance on Mount Zion, and it will be holy; the house of Jacob will dispossess those who dispossessed them.

  •   sammilynnburke @jefffrandsen Super weird question -- how can you still get a line space in between your text in captions?! I cannot do that anymore on mine!! & your art is fabulous, thanks for letting Instagram see your journey through the bible this year -- it's really been a blessing! 2w
  •   jefffrandsen @sammilynnburke all I do is indent down... Are you using an iPhone? 2w
  •   sammilynnburke @jefffrandsen Yes I am! My friends cannot do it either!! I insert the break in the caption, but once I post the photo it goes away. 2w
  •   jefffrandsen @sammilynnburke it doesn't work all the time for me. Sometimes I type stuff up in the Notes app and paste it! Try that! 2w
  •   sammilynnburke @jefffrandsen thanks for the advice! It still doesn't work -- but it was worth a shot! Thank you! 2w
  •   deannajo7 Congrats! Everyone needs to spread the good word! 1w

jefffrandsen If you asked me what my ideal birthday looks like... Today was it. @Mets opening day with my beautiful wife (@lizfrandsen), sitting with the best fans in baseball (@the7line), in the most beautiful weather, and shutting out the Phillies. Folks, for me, it doesn't get any better than that. #mets 2w
