June 4 – 10

This is not meant to be a beating, but rather a tool to give you some help in reading and understanding God’s word.  If you miss a day, and can “catch up: by doubling up, then sweet.  If you can’t read on certain days, adjust the schedule to fit your life.  I think you will find the schedule pretty easy to maintain if you keep just a bit of discipline.

With that said…………….

This week’s reading:
June 4
: 1 Chronicles 26 – 29
June 5: 2 Chronicles 1 – 2
June 6: 2 Chronicles 3 – 5
June 7: 2 Chronicles 6 – 8
June 8: 2 Chronicles  9 – 11
June 9: 2 Chronicles 12 – 14
June 10:  2 Chronicles 15 – 17
June 11: 2 Chronicles 18 – 20

Summary:
May 28
: 1 Chronicles 5 – 7
1 Chronicles 5 – 7 continue the genealogies of the tribes of Israel.
May 29: 1 Chronicles 8 – 10
1 Chronicles 8 & 9 move from genealogy to census. 
1 Chronicles 10 begins the narrative of 1 Chronicles with the recounting of the death of Saul.  (Note: There is a lot of repetition in Chronicles compared to Kings & Samuel.  Chronicles (1 & 2) will focus on Judah and in many cases give a shortened account of the events previously seen.  In other places, because of the focus, the account will be lengthened with more detail.  They are still the same event from differing perspectives, as in the Gospels, and should be no cause for worry to the Christian.)
May 30: 1 Chronicles 11 – 13
1 Chronicles 11 quickly makes David king and Jerusalem the capital of Israel. 
1 Chronicles 12 continues 11’s census with David’s supporters listed. 
1 Chronicles 13 recounts the travel of the Ark in to the city and the troubles encountered.
May 31: 1 Chronicles 14 – 16
1 Chronicles 14 shows the blessings of God upon David both in military and family. 
1 Chronicles 15 finally moves the Ark of the Covenant into the capital city. 
1 Chronicles 16 builds the tent for the Ark and concludes with a Psalm of Thanks and the worship of the people.
June 1: 1 Chronicles 17 – 19
1 Chronicles 17 gives the covenant between God & David and David’s prayer. 
1 Chronicles 18 again shows God’s blessing upon David’s kingdom.  (Note: As you see the descent of the Judean kingdom in the following chapters, remember the blessing God bestowed upon the nation through her king.  This was a good gift and a foreshadowing, when the true King comes; the blessings of God will be poured upon His people.)
1 Chronicles 19 gives some of David’s battle victories.
June 2: 1 Chronicles 20 – 22
1 Chronicles 20 shows victory in battle for David. 
1 Chronicles 21 is David’s sin (another one) in bringing the census.  (Note: To ensure David is not viewed as “the promised King”, his sin is highlighted again.  Note however, David trusts in the Lord even in receiving judgment.)
1 Chronicles 22 moves to focus upon the Temple and Solomon as the one to build it.
June 3:  1 Chronicles 23 – 25
1 Chronicles 23 transitions from David to Solomon and the census of the Levites, which will continue through 1 Chronicles  26.
