1 Chronicles 17:1-27
1. Now when David lived in his house, David said to Nathan the prophet, "Behold, I dwell in a house of cedar, but the ark of the covenant of the LORD is under a tent."
2. And Nathan said to David, "Do all that is in your heart, for God is with you."
3. But that same night the word of the LORD came to Nathan,
4. "Go and tell my servant David, 'Thus says the LORD: It is not you who will build me a house to dwell in.
5. For I have not lived in a house since the day I brought up Israel to this day, but I have gone from tent to tent and from dwelling to dwelling.
6. In all places where I have moved with all Israel, did I speak a word with any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to shepherd my people, saying, "Why have you not built me a house of cedar?"'
7. Now, therefore, thus shall you say to my servant David, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, I took you from the pasture, from following the sheep, to be prince over my people Israel,
8. and I have been with you wherever you have gone and have cut off all your enemies from before you. And I will make for you a name, like the name of the great ones of the earth.
9. And I will appoint a place for my people Israel and will plant them, that they may dwell in their own place and be disturbed no more. And violent men shall waste them no more, as formerly,
10. from the time that I appointed judges over my people Israel. And I will subdue all your enemies. Moreover, I declare to you that the LORD will build you a house.
11. When your days are fulfilled to walk with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring after you, one of your own sons, and I will establish his kingdom.
12. He shall build a house for me, and I will establish his throne forever.
13. I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son. I will not take my steadfast love from him, as I took it from him who was before you,
14. but I will confirm him in my house and in my kingdom forever, and his throne shall be established forever.'"
15. In accordance with all these words, and in accordance with all this vision, Nathan spoke to David.
16. Then King David went in and sat before the LORD and said, "Who am I, O LORD God, and what is my house, that you have brought me thus far?
17. And this was a small thing in your eyes, O God. You have also spoken of your servant's house for a great while to come, and have shown me future generations, O LORD God!
18. And what more can David say to you for honoring your servant? For you know your servant.
19. For your servant's sake, O LORD, and according to your own heart, you have done all this greatness, in making known all these great things.
20. There is none like you, O LORD, and there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard with our ears.
21. And who is like your people Israel, the one nation on earth whom God went to redeem to be his people, making for yourself a name for great and awesome things, in driving out nations before your people whom you redeemed from Egypt?
22. And you made your people Israel to be your people forever, and you, O LORD, became their God.
23. And now, O LORD, let the word that you have spoken concerning your servant and concerning his house be established forever, and do as you have spoken,
24. and your name will be established and magnified forever, saying, 'The LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, is Israel's God,' and the house of your servant David will be established before you.
25. For you, my God, have revealed to your servant that you will build a house for him. Therefore your servant has found courage to pray before you.
26. And now, O LORD, you are God, and you have promised this good thing to your servant.
27. Now you have been pleased to bless the house of your servant, that it may continue forever before you, for it is you, O LORD, who have blessed, and it is blessed forever."

1 Chronicles 18:1-17
1. After this David defeated the Philistines and subdued them, and he took Gath and its villages out of the hand of the Philistines.
2. And he defeated Moab, and the Moabites became servants to David and brought tribute.
3. David also defeated Hadadezer king of Zobah-Hamath, as he went to set up his monument at the river Euphrates.
4. And David took from him 1,000 chariots, 7,000 horsemen and 20,000 foot soldiers. And David hamstrung all the chariot horses, but left enough for 100 chariots.
5. And when the Syrians of Damascus came to help Hadadezer king of Zobah, David struck down 22,000 men of the Syrians.
6. Then David put garrisons in Syria of Damascus, and the Syrians became servants to David and brought tribute. And the LORD gave victory to David wherever he went.
7. And David took the shields of gold that were carried by the servants of Hadadezer and brought them to Jerusalem.
8. And from Tibhath and from Cun, cities of Hadadezer, David took a large amount of bronze. With it Solomon made the bronze sea and the pillars and the vessels of bronze.
9. When Tou king of Hamath heard that David had defeated the whole army of Hadadezer, king of Zobah,
10. he sent his son Hadoram to King David, to ask about his health and to bless him because he had fought against Hadadezer and defeated him; for Hadadezer had often been at war with Tou. And he sent all sorts of articles of gold, of silver, and of bronze.
11. These also King David dedicated to the LORD, together with the silver and gold that he had carried off from all the nations, from Edom, Moab, the Ammonites, the Philistines and Amalek.
12. And Abishai, the son of Zeruiah, killed 18,000 Edomites in the Valley of Salt.
13. Then he put garrisons in Edom, and all the Edomites became David's servants. And the LORD gave victory to David wherever he went.
14. So David reigned over all Israel, and he administered justice and equity to all his people.
15. And Joab the son of Zeruiah was over the army; and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was recorder;
16. and Zadok the son of Ahitub and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar were priests; and Shavsha was secretary;
17. and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was over the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and David's sons were the chief officials in the service of the king.

Psalms 78:17-25
17. Yet they sinned still more against him, rebelling against the Most High in the desert.
18. They tested God in their heart by demanding the food they craved.
19. They spoke against God, saying, "Can God spread a table in the wilderness?
20. He struck the rock so that water gushed out and streams overflowed. Can he also give bread or provide meat for his people?"
21. Therefore, when the LORD heard, he was full of wrath; a fire was kindled against Jacob; his anger rose against Israel,
22. because they did not believe in God and did not trust his saving power.
23. Yet he commanded the skies above and opened the doors of heaven,
24. and he rained down on them manna to eat and gave them the grain of heaven.
25. Man ate of the bread of the angels; he sent them food in abundance.

Proverbs 19:25-26

Acts 8:1-25
1. And Saul approved of his execution. And there arose on that day a great persecution against the church in Jerusalem, and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles.
2. Devout men buried Stephen and made great lamentation over him.
3. But Saul was ravaging the church, and entering house after house, he dragged off men and women and committed them to prison.
4. Now those who were scattered went about preaching the word.
5. Philip went down to the city of Samaria and proclaimed to them the Christ.
6. And the crowds with one accord paid attention to what was being said by Philip when they heard him and saw the signs that he did.
7. For unclean spirits came out of many who were possessed, crying with a loud voice, and many who were paralyzed or lame were healed.
8. So there was much joy in that city.
9. But there was a man named Simon, who had previously practiced magic in the city and amazed the people of Samaria, saying that he himself was somebody great.
10. They all paid attention to him, from the least to the greatest, saying, "This man is the power of God that is called Great."
11. And they paid attention to him because for a long time he had amazed them with his magic.
12. But when they believed Philip as he preached good news about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
13. Even Simon himself believed, and after being baptized he continued with Philip. And seeing signs and great miracles performed, he was amazed.
14. Now when the apostles at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent to them Peter and John,
15. who came down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit,
16. for he had not yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
17. Then they laid their hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit.
18. Now when Simon saw that the Spirit was given through the laying on of the apostles' hands, he offered them money,
19. saying, "Give me this power also, so that anyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit."
20. But Peter said to him, "May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money!
21. You have neither part nor lot in this matter, for your heart is not right before God.
22. Repent, therefore, of this wickedness of yours, and pray to the Lord that, if possible, the intent of your heart may be forgiven you.
23. For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and in the bond of iniquity."
24. And Simon answered, "Pray for me to the Lord, that nothing of what you have said may come upon me."
25. Now when they had testified and spoken the word of the Lord, they returned to Jerusalem, preaching the gospel to many villages of the Samaritans.
