May 20, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we are reading one chapter of Proverbs and three chapters in 1 Kings.

May 20: Proverbs 6, 1 Kings 14, 1 Kings 15, 1 Kings 16 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Proverbs 6 warns against cosigning documents with neighbors, condemns sluggards of their sleepy and lazy habits and points to the destruction of wicked men. It tells about the seven detestable things to the LORD, and finally it takes a dim view of adultery, a sure way to destroy yourself and others.

Not much good in 1 Kings 14, it tells of judgment on the house of Jeroboam and his death, and Rehoboam taking over power and his death.

1 Kings 15, the evil king Abijam Reigned in Judah. After his death Asa became king over Judah and he was a good king. Meanwhile in Israel Nadab reigned, and after him Baasha both doing evil things in the eyes of the LORD.

1 Kings 16 displays a depressing list of kings over Israel, Baasha, Elah, Zimri, one worse the the other, finally culminating with Ahab, the worst of them all, setting up Baal worship in Israel.

1 Kings 15, Abijam Reigns in Judah, Asa Reigns in Judah, Nadab Reigns in Israel, Baasha Reigns in Israel.

1 Kings 15, Abijam Reigns in Judah, Asa Reigns in Judah, Nadab Reigns in Israel, Baasha Reigns in Israel.
