1 Chronicles 13:1-14
1. David conferred with each of his officers, the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds.
2. He then said to the whole assembly of Israel, "If it seems good to you and if it is the will of the LORD our God, let us send word far and wide to the rest of our brothers throughout the territories of Israel, and also to the priests and Levites who are with them in their towns and pasturelands, to come and join us.
3. Let us bring the ark of our God back to us, for we did not inquire of it during the reign of Saul."
4. The whole assembly agreed to do this, because it seemed right to all the people.
5. So David assembled all the Israelites, from the Shihor River in Egypt to Lebo Hamath, to bring the ark of God from Kiriath Jearim.
6. David and all the Israelites with him went to Baalah of Judah (Kiriath Jearim) to bring up from there the ark of God the LORD, who is enthroned between the cherubim-the ark that is called by the Name.
7. They moved the ark of God from Abinadab's house on a new cart, with Uzzah and Ahio guiding it.
8. David and all the Israelites were celebrating with all their might before God, with songs and with harps, lyres, tambourines, cymbals and trumpets.
9. When they came to the threshing floor of Kidon, Uzzah reached out his hand to steady the ark, because the oxen stumbled.
10. The LORD's anger burned against Uzzah, and he struck him down because he had put his hand on the ark. So he died there before God.
11. Then David was angry because the LORD's wrath had broken out against Uzzah, and to this day that place is called Perez Uzzah.
12. David was afraid of God that day and asked, "How can I ever bring the ark of God to me?"
13. He did not take the ark to be with him in the City of David. Instead, he took it aside to the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite.
14. The ark of God remained with the family of Obed-Edom in his house for three months, and the LORD blessed his household and everything he had.

1 Chronicles 14:1-17
1. Now Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, along with cedar logs, stonemasons and carpenters to build a palace for him.
2. And David knew that the LORD had established him as king over Israel and that his kingdom had been highly exalted for the sake of his people Israel.
3. In Jerusalem David took more wives and became the father of more sons and daughters.
4. These are the names of the children born to him there: 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, they went up in full force to search for him, but David heard about it and went out to meet them.
9. Now the Philistines had come and raided the Valley of Rephaim;
10. so David inquired of God: "Shall I go and attack the Philistines? Will you hand them over to me?" The LORD answered him, "Go, I will hand them over to you."
11. So David and his men went up to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them. He said, "As waters break out, God has broken out against my enemies by my hand." So that place was called Baal Perazim.
12. The Philistines had abandoned their gods there, and David gave orders to burn them in the fire.
13. Once more the Philistines raided the valley;
14. so David inquired of God again, and God answered him, "Do not go straight up, but circle around them and attack them in front of the balsam trees.
15. As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, move out to battle, because that will mean God has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army."
16. So David did as God commanded him, and they struck down the Philistine army, all the way from Gibeon to Gezer.
17. So David's fame spread throughout every land, and the LORD made all the nations fear him.

Psalms 78:1-11
1. O my people, hear my teaching; listen to the words of my mouth.
2. I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter hidden things, things from of old-
3. what we have heard and known, what our fathers have told us.
4. We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done.
5. He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our forefathers to teach their children,
6. so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children.
7. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.
8. They would not be like their forefathers- a stubborn and rebellious generation, whose hearts were not loyal to God, whose spirits were not faithful to him.
9. The men of Ephraim, though armed with bows, turned back on the day of battle;
10. they did not keep God's covenant and refused to live by his law.
11. They forgot what he had done, the wonders he had shown them.

Proverbs 19:20-21
20. Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise.
21. Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.

Acts 7:22-43
22. Moses was educated in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was powerful in speech and action.
23. "When Moses was forty years old, he decided to visit his fellow Israelites.
24. He saw one of them being mistreated by an Egyptian, so he went to his defense and avenged him by killing the Egyptian.
25. Moses thought that his own people would realize that God was using him to rescue them, but they did not.
26. The next day Moses came upon two Israelites who were fighting. He tried to reconcile them by saying, 'Men, you are brothers; why do you want to hurt each other?'
27. "But the man who was mistreating the other pushed Moses aside and said, 'Who made you ruler and judge over us?
28. Do you want to kill me as you killed the Egyptian yesterday?'
29. When Moses heard this, he fled to Midian, where he settled as a foreigner and had two sons.
30. "After forty years had passed, an angel appeared to Moses in the flames of a burning bush in the desert near Mount Sinai.
31. When he saw this, he was amazed at the sight. As he went over to look more closely, he heard the Lord's voice:
32. 'I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.' Moses trembled with fear and did not dare to look.
33. "Then the Lord said to him, 'Take off your sandals; the place where you are standing is holy ground.
34. I have indeed seen the oppression of my people in Egypt. I have heard their groaning and have come down to set them free. Now come, I will send you back to Egypt.'
35. "This is the same Moses whom they had rejected with the words, 'Who made you ruler and judge?' He was sent to be their ruler and deliverer by God himself, through the angel who appeared to him in the bush.
36. He led them out of Egypt and did wonders and miraculous signs in Egypt, at the Red Sea and for forty years in the desert.
37. "This is that Moses who told the Israelites, 'God will send you a prophet like me from your own people.'
38. He was in the assembly in the desert, with the angel who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our fathers; and he received living words to pass on to us.
39. "But our fathers refused to obey him. Instead, they rejected him and in their hearts turned back to Egypt.
40. They told Aaron, 'Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who led us out of Egypt--we don't know what has happened to him!'
41. That was the time they made an idol in the form of a calf. They brought sacrifices to it and held a celebration in honor of what their hands had made.
42. But God turned away and gave them over to the worship of the heavenly bodies. This agrees with what is written in the book of the prophets: "'Did you bring me sacrifices and offerings forty years in the desert, O house of Israel?
43. You have lifted up the shrine of Molech and the star of your god Rephan, the idols you made to worship. Therefore I will send you into exile' beyond Babylon.
