1 Chronicles 17:1-27
1. After David was settled in his palace, he said to Nathan the prophet, "Here I am, living in a palace of cedar, while the ark of the covenant of the LORD is under a tent."
2. Nathan replied to David, "Whatever you have in mind, do it, for God is with you."
3. That night the word of God came to Nathan, saying:
4. "Go and tell my servant David, 'This is what the LORD says: You are not the one to build me a house to dwell in.
5. I have not dwelt in a house from the day I brought Israel up out of Egypt to this day. I have moved from one tent site to another, from one dwelling place to another.
6. Wherever I have moved with all the Israelites, did I ever say to any of their leaders whom I commanded to shepherd my people, "Why have you not built me a house of cedar?"'
7. "Now then, tell my servant David, 'This is what the LORD Almighty says: I took you from the pasture and from following the flock, to be ruler over my people Israel.
8. I have been with you wherever you have gone, and I have cut off all your enemies from before you. Now I will make your name like the names of the greatest men of the earth.
9. And I will provide a place for my people Israel and will plant them so that they can have a home of their own and no longer be disturbed. Wicked people will not oppress them anymore, as they did at the beginning
10. and have done ever since the time I appointed leaders over my people Israel. I will also subdue all your enemies. "'I declare to you that the LORD will build a house for you:
11. When your days are over and you go to be with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, one of your own sons, and I will establish his kingdom.
12. He is the one who will build a house for me, and I will establish his throne forever.
13. I will be his father, and he will be my son. I will never take my love away from him, as I took it away from your predecessor.
14. I will set him over my house and my kingdom forever; his throne will be established forever.'"
15. Nathan reported to David all the words of this entire revelation.
16. Then King David went in and sat before the LORD, and he said: "Who am I, O LORD God, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far?
17. And as if this were not enough in your sight, O God, you have spoken about the future of the house of your servant. You have looked on me as though I were the most exalted of men, O LORD God.
18. "What more can David say to you for honoring your servant? For you know your servant,
19. O LORD. For the sake of your servant and according to your will, you have done this great thing and made known all these great promises.
20. "There is no one like you, O LORD, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.
21. And who is like your people Israel-the one nation on earth whose God went out to redeem a people for himself, and to make a name for yourself, and to perform great and awesome wonders by driving out nations from before your people, whom you redeemed from Egypt?
22. You made your people Israel your very own forever, and you, O LORD, have become their God.
23. "And now, LORD, let the promise you have made concerning your servant and his house be established forever. Do as you promised,
24. so that it will be established and that your name will be great forever. Then men will say, 'The LORD Almighty, the God over Israel, is Israel's God!' And the house of your servant David will be established before you.
25. "You, my God, have revealed to your servant that you will build a house for him. So your servant has found courage to pray to you.
26. O LORD, you are God! You have promised these good things to your servant.
27. Now you have been pleased to bless the house of your servant, that it may continue forever in your sight; for you, O LORD, have blessed it, and it will be blessed forever."

3. Moreover, David fought Hadadezer king of Zobah, as far as Hamath, when he went to establish his control along the Euphrates River.
4. David captured a thousand of his chariots, seven thousand charioteers and twenty thousand foot soldiers. He hamstrung all but a hundred of the chariot horses.

7. David took the gold shields carried by the officers of Hadadezer and brought them to Jerusalem.
8. From Tebah and Cun, towns that belonged to Hadadezer, David took a great quantity of bronze, which Solomon used to make the bronze Sea, the pillars and various bronze articles.
9. When Tou king of Hamath heard that David had defeated the entire army of Hadadezer king of Zobah,
10. he sent his son Hadoram to King David to greet him and congratulate him on his victory in battle over Hadadezer, who had been at war with Tou. Hadoram brought all kinds of articles of gold and silver and bronze.
11. King David dedicated these articles to the LORD, as he had done with the silver and gold he had taken from all these nations: Edom and Moab, the Ammonites and the Philistines, and Amalek.
12. Abishai son of Zeruiah struck down eighteen thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt.
13. He put garrisons in Edom, and all the Edomites became subject to David. The LORD gave David victory everywhere he went.

Psalms 78:17-25
17. But they continued to sin against him, rebelling in the desert against the Most High.
18. They willfully put God to the test by demanding the food they craved.
19. They spoke against God, saying, "Can God spread a table in the desert?
20. When he struck the rock, water gushed out, and streams flowed abundantly. But can he also give us food? Can he supply meat for his people?"
21. When the LORD heard them, he was very angry; his fire broke out against Jacob, and his wrath rose against Israel,
22. for they did not believe in God or trust in his deliverance.
23. Yet he gave a command to the skies above and opened the doors of the heavens;
24. he rained down manna for the people to eat, he gave them the grain of heaven.
25. Men ate the bread of angels; he sent them all the food they could eat.

Proverbs 19:25-26

Acts 8:1-25
1. And Saul was there, giving approval to his death.
2. On that day a great persecution broke out against the church at Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. Godly men buried Stephen and mourned deeply for him.
3. But Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off men and women and put them in prison.
4. Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.
5. Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed the Christ there.
6. When the crowds heard Philip and saw the miraculous signs he did, they all paid close attention to what he said.
7. With shrieks, evil spirits came out of many, and many paralytics and cripples were healed.
8. So there was great joy in that city.
9. Now for some time a man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city and amazed all the people of Samaria. He boasted that he was someone great,
10. and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, "This man is the divine power known as the Great Power."
11. They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his magic.
12. But when they believed Philip as he preached the good news of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
13. Simon himself believed and was baptized. And he followed Philip everywhere, astonished by the great signs and miracles he saw.
14. When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them.
15. When they arrived, they prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit,
16. because the Holy Spirit had not yet come upon any of them; they had simply been baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus.
17. Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
18. When Simon saw that the Spirit was given at the laying on of the apostles' hands, he offered them money
19. and said, "Give me also this ability so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit."
20. Peter answered: "May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money!
21. You have no part or share in this ministry, because your heart is not right before God.
22. Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord. Perhaps he will forgive you for having such a thought in your heart.
23. For I see that you are full of bitterness and captive to sin."
24. Then Simon answered, "Pray to the Lord for me so that nothing you have said may happen to me."
25. When they had testified and proclaimed the word of the Lord, Peter and John returned to Jerusalem, preaching the gospel in many Samaritan villages.
