1 Chronicles 22: David prepares for the construction of the temple. He brings his son, Solomon, to the area and tells him that he will be the one to build the temple because God told David that he had spilled too much blood. David also prepares his generals for Solomon.
1 Chronicles 19: David’s conquests over the Arameans and the Ammonites. They fall easily.
1 Chronicles 16: David establishes worship and offers a lengthy song of praise to God.
1 Chronicles 13: This chapter is about the first time that David tried to move the Ark. I find it interesting that the version told here doesn’t exactly match the first time we learn about David’s attempt to move the Ark in 2 Samuel 6. I thought the Chronicler had access to the original sources.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about this experience up to this point and thought I need to just write it down. I expect this to ramble some. And it may not make sense. Oh well.
1 Chronicles 10: Entire chapter is about the death of Saul. The story pretty much matches what we read in earlier text (1 Samuel).
1 Chronicles 7: Focus of this chapter is on more of Israel’s sons: Issachar’s line, the lies of Benjamin and Naphtali, Manasseh’s line, Ephraim’s line, and Asher’s line.
