Journal Through the Bible: Week 90 Saturday

I Chronicles chapter 19

This chapter is also almost identical to II Samuel chapter 10. These are also the chapters that tell how David defeated Zobah, Ammon, and the Syrians as mentioned in chapter 18. These are the nations he defeated and gained gold and brass for the future Temple building project.

Does God issue any commands?

  • God does not speak.

Does God make any promises?

  • God does not speak.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • Like the servants of David, Jesus came as an ambassador from the Sovereign only to be treated disrespectfully. And like the battle that ensued between Israel and Ammon, God will fight those who are disrespectful to His Son. (Jesus told a similar story in a parable about a landowner who sent his son to collect the goods due him from the husbandmen who then sent his armies to fight the wicked husbandmen who killed his son.)

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Those who disrespect God's Ambassador will not go unpunished.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
