Day 127

1 Chronicles 18-21

Chapter 18

On and on with the rehash of the stories of David from the book of Samuel. If you didn’t quite absorb all that the first time round, you can read them here in abridged form. Otherwise, just skim over them.

Chapter 19

Ditto. A rehash of David’s battles and body counts.

fish storyChapter 20

More rehash of Samuel, complete with gratuitous violent details, plus giants. And would David even be able to stand up with a 75 pound crown on his head? Or is just this a fish story, where the crown gets bigger with each retelling?

Chapter 21

A retelling of the census story from 2 Samuel 24, with a few contradictions in the details. At least this version clarifies why the Yahweh was upset with David – because it was Satan who provoked the census. But did the famine last 3 years, or 7? And how much did David pay for the threshing floor? Depends on which version you read.
