1 Chronicles 13:1-14
1. David consulted with the commanders of thousands and of hundreds, with every leader.
2. And David said to all the assembly of Israel, "If it seems good to you and from the LORD our God, let us send abroad to our brothers who remain in all the lands of Israel, as well as to the priests and Levites in the cities that have pasturelands, that they may be gathered to us.
3. Then let us bring again the ark of our God to us, for we did not seek it in the days of Saul."
4. All the assembly agreed to do so, for the thing was right in the eyes of all the people.
5. So David assembled all Israel from the Nile of Egypt to Lebo-hamath, to bring the ark of God from Kiriath-jearim.
6. And David and all Israel went up to Baalah, that is, to Kiriath-jearim that belongs to Judah, to bring up from there the ark of God, which is called by the name of the LORD who sits enthroned above the cherubim.
7. And they carried the ark of God on a new cart, from the house of Abinadab, and Uzzah and Ahio were driving the cart.
8. And David and all Israel were rejoicing before God with all their might, with song and lyres and harps and tambourines and cymbals and trumpets.
9. And when they came to the threshing floor of Chidon, Uzzah put out his hand to take hold of the ark, for the oxen stumbled.
10. And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah, and he struck him down because he put out his hand to the ark, and he died there before God.
11. And David was angry because the LORD had broken out against Uzzah. And that place is called Perez-uzza to this day.
12. And David was afraid of God that day, and he said, "How can I bring the ark of God home to me?"
13. So David did not take the ark home into the city of David, but took it aside to the house of Obed-edom the Gittite.
14. And the ark of God remained with the household of Obed-edom in his house three months. And the LORD blessed the household of Obed-edom and all that he had.

1 Chronicles 14:1-17
1. And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, also masons and carpenters to build a house for him.
2. And David knew that the LORD had established him as king over Israel, and that his kingdom was highly exalted for the sake of his people Israel.
3. And David took more wives in Jerusalem, and David fathered more sons and daughters.
4. These are the names of the children born to him in Jerusalem: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon,
5. Ibhar, Elishua, Elpelet,
6. Nogah, Nepheg, Japhia,
7. Elishama, Beeliada and Eliphelet.
8. When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over all Israel, all the Philistines went up to search for David. But David heard of it and went out against them.
9. Now the Philistines had come and made a raid in the Valley of Rephaim.
10. And David inquired of God, "Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will you give them into my hand?" And the LORD said to him, "Go up, and I will give them into your hand."
11. And he went up to Baal-perazim, and David struck them down there. And David said, "God has broken through my enemies by my hand, like a bursting flood." Therefore the name of that place is called Baal-perazim.
12. And they left their gods there, and David gave command, and they were burned.
13. And the Philistines yet again made a raid in the valley.
14. And when David again inquired of God, God said to him, "You shall not go up after them; go around and come against them opposite the balsam trees.
15. And when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, then go out to battle, for God has gone out before you to strike down the army of the Philistines."
16. And David did as God commanded him, and they struck down the Philistine army from Gibeon to Gezer.
17. And the fame of David went out into all lands, and the LORD brought the fear of him upon all nations.

Psalms 78:1-11
1. A MASKIL OF ASAPH. Give ear, O my people, to my teaching; incline your ears to the words of my mouth!
2. I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings from of old,
3. things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us.
4. We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders that he has done.
5. He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers to teach to their children,
6. that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children,
7. so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments;
8. and that they should not be like their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation whose heart was not steadfast, whose spirit was not faithful to God.
9. The Ephraimites, armed with the bow, turned back on the day of battle.
10. They did not keep God's covenant, but refused to walk according to his law.
11. They forgot his works and the wonders that he had shown them.

Proverbs 19:20-21
20. Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future.
21. Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand.

Acts 7:22-43
22. And Moses was instructed in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and he was mighty in his words and deeds.
23. "When he was forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brothers, the children of Israel.
24. And seeing one of them being wronged, he defended the oppressed man and avenged him by striking down the Egyptian.
25. He supposed that his brothers would understand that God was giving them salvation by his hand, but they did not understand.
26. And on the following day he appeared to them as they were quarreling and tried to reconcile them, saying, 'Men, you are brothers. Why do you wrong each other?'
27. But the man who was wronging his neighbor thrust him aside, saying, 'Who made you a ruler and a judge over us?
28. Do you want to kill me as you killed the Egyptian yesterday?'
29. At this retort Moses fled and became an exile in the land of Midian, where he became the father of two sons.
30. "Now when forty years had passed, an angel appeared to him in the wilderness of Mount Sinai, in a flame of fire in a bush.
31. When Moses saw it, he was amazed at the sight, and as he drew near to look, there came the voice of the Lord:
32. 'I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob.' And Moses trembled and did not dare to look.
33. Then the Lord said to him, 'Take off the sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.
34. I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and have heard their groaning, and I have come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send you to Egypt.'
35. "This Moses, whom they rejected, saying, 'Who made you a ruler and a judge?'- this man God sent as both ruler and redeemer by the hand of the angel who appeared to him in the bush.
36. This man led them out, performing wonders and signs in Egypt and at the Red Sea and in the wilderness for forty years.
37. This is the Moses who said to the Israelites, 'God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brothers.'
38. This is the one who was in the congregation in the wilderness with the angel who spoke to him at Mount Sinai, and with our fathers. He received living oracles to give to us.
39. Our fathers refused to obey him, but thrust him aside, and in their hearts they turned to Egypt,
40. saying to Aaron, 'Make for us gods who will go before us. As for this Moses who led us out from the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.'
41. And they made a calf in those days, and offered a sacrifice to the idol and were rejoicing in the works of their hands.
42. But God turned away and gave them over to worship the host of heaven, as it is written in the book of the prophets: "' Did you bring to me slain beasts and sacrifices, during the forty years in the wilderness, O house of Israel?
43. You took up the tent of Moloch and the star of your god Rephan, the images that you made to worship; and I will send you into exile beyond Babylon.'
