June 9, read through the Bible in a year.

Today, in between Romans and 1 Corinthians we are reading two Psalms and two chapters in 1 Chronicles..

June 9: Psalm 38, Psalm 39, 1 Chronicles 8, 1 Chronicles 9 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Psalm 38, of David, a Petition. This is a Psalm of deep despair and remorse. David acknowledges his sin and cries out to God. Yet, in failing health and abandonment by friends and family his hope in God remains steadfast.

Psalm 39, of David. At the  later part of his life David wrote this Psalm to give words of wisdom, knowing the end for him was near. It is sometimes quoted in part in funerals to give comfort when words are hard to find.

1 Chronicles 8 lists the genealogy of king Saul.

1 Chronicles 9 lists the people, the priests, the Levites and the Levite gatekeepers in Jerusalem that had returned after the captivity in Babylon. It continues with other Levite responsibilities and finally gives another part of the genealogy of king Saul.
