1 Chronicles 25-29
- 25:1-31 – Like the priests, David divided the musicians to all have a certain role.
- 26:29-31 – Some of the Levites were given jobs outside of the temple.
- 26:31 – David’s 40th year of reigning was his last.
- 27:23-24 – David was not asked to run this census of the people and God was not pleased that he did. These verses seem to attempt to absolve him of his wrongdoing because the census was never completed.
- 27:33 – It is funny that right in the middle of all the official positions and responsibilities is listed Hushai, the king’s friend, as if that is an official position too.
- 28:2-8 – In David’s final year as king, he explains that he was chosen for a specific purpose. He was a king of war, but his family, from his line was chosen to be on the throne forever. This is culminated with Jesus coming from David’s line. Interestingly, there are things he wasn’t called to do. God has a specific purpose for each of us.
- 28:20 – These words David speaks to Solomon are familiar. We hear them in parts when Moses hands over leadership of Israel to Moses and we hear them throughout the Psalms.
- 29:3-5 – Leaders have to put their money where their mouth is.
- 29:14 – This should be our attitude with our resources. We are simply giving from what God has given us.
