May 17: Read through the Holy Bible in a year.

In Luke 14, , again on the Sabbath, at a Pharisee’s house no less, Jesus healed a man with dropsy. Noticing how the people competed for the best places Jesus spoke of the lowly place to be sought rather than the place of honor, and as an object lesson he gave us the parable of the Great Supper and the cost of following Christ. Finally Jesus mentioned the value of good salt and the worthlessness of salt that lost its savor.

1 Kings 8. It was celebration time when the Ark was brought into the Temple, Solomon gave a great speech and a prayer of dedication. Then he blessed the Assembly and dedicated the Temple with lots of sacrifices and it finished with a fourteen day feast.

1 Kings 9 tells of God’s second appearance to Solomon, this time with a promise and a warning. Solomon and Hiram exchanged gifts and the chapter lists more of Solomon’s achievements.

Psalm 29, of David. A song of praise.  This Psalm gives us a vivid description of a storm, and how the voice of God speaks through it.

Psalm 30, for the dedication of the Temple. Of David. ( An alternate translation : For the dedication of the House of David.) It was written for the dedication of David’s palace, but Charles Spurgeon thought that it was actually written prophetically for the dedication of the Temple – which David prepared for, but Solomon built. You decide.

1 Kings 9 tells of God’s Second Appearance to Solomon, this time with a promise and a warning. Solomon and Hiram exchanged gifts and it records more of Solomon’s achievements.

In 1 Kings 10 the Queen of Sheba visited Solomon and praised him “The half had not been told”; of Solomon’s great wisdom and wealth, that is.

1 Kings 11 Solomon’s heart turned from the LORD, ( blame the foreign women with their idolatry). It records Solomon’s adversaries, Jeroboam’s rebellion, and Solomon’s death.
