Taking a pause between Romans and 1 Corinthians we read today one chapter in Proverbs and three chapters in 1 Chronicles..
Proverbs 7, keep the Law, Seek wisdom and above all, stay away from harlots! They will use every trick to get you!
1 Chronicles 10. The inglorious end of king Saul. He fell on his own sword and his sons were killed.
1 Chronicles 11, David was made King over Israel, after which he conquered Jerusalem and it was from then on called the City of David (as opposed to the town of David, which is Bethlehem). The chapter also lists David’s mighty men, describing some of their deeds.
1 Chronicles 12, David’s Army grew and grew, and in Hebron David’s Army was numbered. With so many volunteers to join the army there was joy in Israel.
