June 12, read through the Bible in a year.

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

June 12: Psalm 43, Psalm 44, 1 Chronicles 15, 1 Chronicles 16 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Psalm 43. This Psalm can very well be a continuation of Psalm 42. Nevrtheless, it is a Psalm of deep depression and yet continuing praise and hope.

Psalm 44, of the sons of Korah. It is a Psalm recounting the great victories God gave the Israelites when they followed God, and the humiliating defeats they suffered when they did not. Yet the psalmist is confident in God and claims they have not forgotten the Lord and ends with an urgent plea for help.

1 Chronicles 15. The Ark is brought to Jerusalem. When David’s wife Michal, daughter of Saul saw David dancing in the street at the joyous occasion, she despised him.

1 Chronicles 16, The Ark was placed in the Tabernacle, and recorded is David’s song of thanksgiving. After that the regular worship resumed.
