1 Chronicles 13:1-14
1. David consulted with the commanders of the thousands and of the hundreds, with every leader.
2. David 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 abroad to our kindred who remain in all the land of Israel, including the priests and Levites in the cities that have pasture lands, that they may come together to us.
3. Then let us bring again the ark of our God to us; for we did not turn to it in the days of Saul."
4. The whole assembly agreed to do so, for the thing pleased all the people.
5. So David assembled all Israel from the Shihor 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, which belongs to Judah, to bring up from there the ark of God, the LORD, who is enthroned on the cherubim, which is called by his name.
7. They carried the ark of God on a new cart, from the house of Abinadab, and Uzzah and Ahio were driving the cart.
8. David and all Israel were dancing before God with all their might, with song and lyres and harps and tambourines and cymbals and trumpets.
9. When they came to the threshing floor of Chidon, Uzzah put out his hand to hold the ark, for the oxen shook it.
10. The anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; he struck him down because he put out his hand to the ark; and he died there before God.
11. David was angry because the LORD had burst out against Uzzah; so that place is called Perez-uzzah to this day.
12. David was afraid of God that day; he said, "How can I bring the ark of God into my care?"
13. So David did not take the ark into his care into the city of David; he took it instead to the house of Obed-edom the Gittite.
14. 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. King Hiram of Tyre sent messengers to David, along with cedar logs, and masons and carpenters to build a house for him.
2. David then perceived 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. David took more wives in Jerusalem, and David became the father of more sons and daughters.
4. These are the names of the children whom he had in Jerusalem: Shammua, Shobab, and Nathan; Solomon,
5. Ibhar, Elishua, and Elpelet;
6. Nogah, Nepheg, and 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 in search of David; and 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. David inquired of God, "Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will you give them into my hand?" The LORD said to him, "Go up, and I will give them into your hand."
11. So he went up to Baal-perazim, and David defeated them there. David said, "God has burst out against my enemies by my hand, like a bursting flood." Therefore that place is called Baal-perazim.
12. They abandoned their gods there, and at David's command they were burned.
13. Once again the Philistines made a raid in the valley.
14. When David again inquired of God, God said to him, "You shall not go up after them; go around and come on them opposite the balsam trees.
15. 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. David did as God had commanded him, and they struck down the Philistine army from Gibeon to Gezer.
17. The fame of David went out into all lands, and the LORD brought the fear of him on all nations.

Psalms 78:1-11
1. 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 ancestors have told us.
4. We will not hide them from their children; we will 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 decree in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach to their children;
6. that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and rise up 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 ancestors, 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 what he had done, and the miracles that he had shown them.

Proverbs 19:20-21
20. Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom for the future.
21. The human mind may devise many plans, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will be established.

Acts 7:22-43
22. So Moses was instructed in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was powerful in his words and deeds.
23. "When he was forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his relatives, the Israelites.
24. When he saw one of them being wronged, he defended the oppressed man and avenged him by striking down the Egyptian.
25. He supposed that his kinsfolk would understand that God through him was rescuing them, but they did not understand.
26. The next day he came to some of 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 pushed Moses 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. When he heard this, Moses fled and became a resident alien in the land of Midian. There 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 the flame of a burning bush.
31. When Moses saw it, he was amazed at the sight; and as he approached to look, there came the voice of the Lord:
32. 'I am the God of your ancestors, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.' Moses began to tremble 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 mistreatment of my people who are in Egypt and have heard their groaning, and I have come down to rescue them. Come now, I will send you to Egypt.'
35. "It was this Moses whom they rejected when they said, 'Who made you a ruler and a judge?' and whom God now sent as both ruler and liberator through the angel who appeared to him in the bush.
36. He led them out, having performed wonders and signs in Egypt, 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 a prophet for you from your own people as he raised me up.'
38. He is the one who was in the congregation in the wilderness with the angel who spoke to him at Mount Sinai, and with our ancestors; and he received living oracles to give to us.
39. Our ancestors were unwilling to obey him; instead, they pushed him aside, and in their hearts they turned back to Egypt,
40. saying to Aaron, 'Make gods for us who will lead the way for us; as for this Moses who led us out from the land of Egypt, we do not know what has happened to him.'
41. At that time they made a calf, offered a sacrifice to the idol, and reveled in the works of their hands.
42. But God turned away from them and handed them over to worship the host of heaven, as it is written in the book of the prophets: 'Did you offer to me slain victims and sacrifices forty years in the wilderness, O house of Israel?
43. No; you took along the tent of Moloch, and the star of your god Rephan, the images that you made to worship; so I will remove you beyond Babylon.'
