Today, in between Romans and 1 Corinthians we are reading three Psalms and two chapters in 1 Chronicles..
Psalm 40, of David. It speaks of the servant that comes to do God’s will. David attributes this to himself, but it is spiritually a messianic Psalm.
Psalm 41, of David. A prayer for help in sickness and protection from traitors and other enemies.
Psalm 42, A Maskil of the sons of Korah. A very old Psalm, it mentions Elohim many times, but Jehovah only once. It begins “As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God.” Enjoy!
1 Chronicles 13.The Ark is brought from Kirjath Jearim.
1 Chronicles 14, David is firmly established at Jerusalem and with his growing army the Philistines are defeated.
