Whyte House Daily Reading of the Chronological Bible #340: 2 Samuel 6:1-11, 1 Chronicles 13:6-14 with Daniel Whyte III

This is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International with the Whyte House Daily Reading of the Chronological Bible Episode #340, where I read the Holy Bible in the King James Version each day in chronological order. This unique viewpoint allows you to read the whole Bible as a single story and to see the unfolding of God’s plan in history. Today we are reading 2 Samuel 6:1-11 and 1 Chronicles 13:6-14.

2 Samuel 6:1-11
1 Again, Da’-vid gathered together all the chosen men of Is’-ra-el, thirty thousand.

2 And Da’-vid arose, and went with all the people that were with him from Ba’-ale of Ju’-dah, to bring up from thence the ark of God, whose name is called by the name of the Lord of hosts that dwelleth between the cherubims.

3 And they set the ark of God upon a new cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab that was in Gib’-e-ah: and Uz’-zah and A’-hi-o, the sons of A’-bin-a-dab, drave the new cart.

4 And they brought it out of the house of A’-bin-a-dab which was at Gib’-e-ah, accompanying the ark of God: and A’-hi-o went before the ark.

5 And Da’-vid and all the house of Is’-ra-el played before the Lord on all manner of instruments made of fir wood, even on harps, and on psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on cymbals.

6 And when they came to Na’-chon’s threshingfloor, Uz’-zah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it.

7 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uz’-zah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God.

8 And Da’-vid was displeased, because the Lord had made a breach upon Uz’-zah: and he called the name of the place Pe’-rez-uz’-zah to this day.

9 And Da’-vid was afraid of the Lord that day, and said, How shall the ark of the Lord come to me?

10 So Da’-vid would not remove the ark of the Lord unto him into the city of Da’-vid: but Da’-vid carried it aside into the house of O’-bed-e’-dom the Git’-tite.

11 And the ark of the Lord continued in the house of O’-bed-e’-dom the Git’-tite three months: and the Lord blessed O’-bed-e’-dom, and all his household.

1 Chronicles 13:6-14
6 And Da’-vid went up, and all Is’-ra-el, to Ba’-a-lah, that is, to Kir’-jath-je’-a-rim, which belonged to Ju’-dah, to bring up thence the ark of God the Lord, that dwelleth between the cherubims, whose name is called on it.

7 And they carried the ark of God in a new cart out of the house of A’-bin-a-dab: and Uz’-za and A’-hi-o drave the cart.

8 And Da’-vid and all Is’-ra-el played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets.

9 And when they came unto the threshingfloor of Chi’-don, Uz’-za put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled.

10 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uz’-za, and he smote him, because he put his hand to the ark: and there he died before God.

11 And Da’-vid was displeased, because the Lord had made a breach upon Uz’-za: wherefore that place is called Pe’-rez-uz’-za to this day.

12 And Da’-vid was afraid of God that day, saying, How shall I bring the ark of God home to me?

13 So Da’-vid brought not the ark home to himself to the city of Da’-vid, but carried it aside into the house of O’-bed-e’-dom the Git’-tite.

14 And the ark of God remained with the family of O’-bed-e’-dom in his house three months. And the Lord blessed the house of O’-bed-e’-dom, and all that he had.

When I was a teenager I wanted to get wisdom and knowledge, so I set out to read the big family Bible that many families had in those days. But I couldn’t get past Genesis 2 before I got bored with reading the Bible. I found out later in life that you have to believe on Christ and get saved before you can understand the Bible. So here is how I became a Christian and how you can too:

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 18:8: “Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”
