Take a pause between reading the Acts of the Apostles and Paul’s epistle to the Romans by reading two Psalms and three chapters in 1 Kings.
Psalm 29, of David.A song of praise. 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.)
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 tells 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 women). It records Solomon’s adversaries, Jeroboam’s rebellion, and Solomon’s death.
