I found verses 8 and 9 most interesting in this chapter. In verse 8, it is another example of the importance of daily scripture study. You would think that with the constant reminders I am receiving about the importance of daily scripture study I might start engaging in daily scripture study. Verse 9 has an interesting grammar to it. The first sentence is a rhetorical question that leads to the conclusion that you were commanded. The results of that fact (you were commanded) lead to the conclusions contained in that verse (i.e., be of good cheer, for you were commanded).
