Recent Episodes of Commuter Bible OT


2 Samuel 8-10, 1 Chronicles 18-19, Psalm 99

2 Samuel 8-10, 1 Chronicles 18-19, Psalm 99

In today’s readings, we’ll cover some of David’s military exploits. As he and his forces are victorious over their enemies, the reader is to understand that the Lord is with him in battle. The narrative thus far has established that David prioritizes the right worship of God. Much like the gospel accounts, we’ll read parallel narratives when we read portions from 2 Samuel and from 1 Chronicles, so don’t be alarmed or feel like you’re experiencing déjà vu. One section that’s unique to 2 Samuel is a recording of David’s kindness to a handicapped man na...

2 Samuel 6-7, 1 Chronicles 17, Psalm 98

2 Samuel 6-7, 1 Chronicles 17, Psalm 98

As we are reading chronologically, there will be a number of passages that cover the same event or span from different perspectives. Today, we’ll read the account of the return of the ark that was covered in 1 Chronicles, followed by the Lord’s covenant with David from both accounts. After King David reestablishes the tabernacle, he returns to his own home, a palace made of cedar, and thinks “Why does God dwell in a tent, while I, a mere man, dwell in a palace?” As his wheels begin to spin, he tells Nathan the prophet. Nathan tells David to go fo...

1 Chronicles 13-16

1 Chronicles 13-16

Now that David is king, he intends to reinstitute the proper worship of God at his tabernacle, which means that the ark of the covenant needs to be retrieved. When the ark almost falls in transit, one man reaches out to grab it, which is not permissible by God’s law. The Lord strikes him dead, which both angers and terrifies David. Scared to bring it to Jerusalem, he leaves it in Gath. After staying in the house of Obed-Edom for a while, the ark of the covenant finally comes to Jerusalem with great fanfare. After King David reestablishes th...

1 Chronicles 11-12, 2 Samuel 5

1 Chronicles 11-12, 2 Samuel 5

In our reading from 1 Chronicles, David is established as king, and the author takes his coronation as an opportunity to chronicle the exploits of David’s men who had been with him in the wilderness, and who continued with him in his new kingdom. Now that David has been recognized as king, it’s time for him to begin to establish his kingdom. In 2 Samuel 5, David consults the Lord before he goes into battle, and the Lord responds to each request for guidance. This may seem unremarkable, but remember that the Lord stopped responding to Saul’s requests for guidan...

1 Chronicles 7-10

1 Chronicles 7-10

We’re still working through a list of names, but thankfully things get a little more interesting this week as the lists are broken up by historical accounts and records of what people did and when. Part of our reading covers the genealogies following the exile, which, admittedly, doesn’t fall within the chronological timeline, but that’s not our aim. Remember, we began 1 Chronicles with Adam, Seth, and Enosh, which also don’t fit. We’re not trying to fit things in verse by verse, and that’s especially true as it relates to these genealogies, because that would actual...

Episode 107 6 June 2024 21m and 41s


1 Chronicles 4-6

1 Chronicles 4-6

We’re reading through the genealogies handed down over the centuries that trace God’s people from Adam & Eve all the way through the exile to Babylon. Remember that each name represents a lifetime and a family: real people with real lives who either trusted in the Lord or who were stiff-necked and rebelled against the Lord. One day you and I may just be names on a list to those who come after us, but what the Lord accomplishes in us and through will not be forgotten by the One who formed us, redeemed us, and called us His...

1 Chronicles 1-3, Psalm 97

1 Chronicles 1-3, Psalm 97

Wait, weren’t we just in 2 Samuel? YES! This is where we’ll start alternating back and forth between Old Testament history books as we seek to read chronologically. We won’t be aligning historical events verse by verse, but we will be trying to align chapters so that the overall historical context is understood. That means we’re going to spend some time in 1 Chronicles as well as 2 Samuel for a bit. So about today’s episode: alright, real talk: this episode probably isn’t going to change your life, but there are some interesting little nuggets to be found in...

Episode 105 4 June 2024 20m and 12s


2 Samuel 3-4, Psalms 95-96

2 Samuel 3-4, Psalms 95-96

In our last episode, we covered the aftermath of King Saul’s death, including a scramble for power and position by Abner, the commander of Israel’s army. After losing a battle against David’s men, Abner fled on foot and was chased down by Asahel. Abner killed Asahel, but escaped to live another day. Today, Asahel’s brother Joab seeks revenge against Abner, but he does so without David’s approval. Later, two assassins cut off Ish-bosheth’s head and bring it to David. David is grieved by both incidents and he makes his grief and mourning public.

Episode 104 3 June 2024 17m and 47s


2 Samuel 1-2, Psalms 93-94

2 Samuel 1-2, Psalms 93-94

After Saul’s death, an Amalekite man comes to David claiming that he is the one who killed Saul, thinking he will be rewarded for his deed since Saul pursued David for so long. To say that David is displeased with this report, however, is an understatement. After a period of mourning for the house of Saul, David is anointed king in Judah, but Abner, the commander of Saul’s army, has other plans. He crowns Saul’s son Ish-bosheth as king, accumulates power for himself, and fights against David’s soldiers. After losing a battle to David’s soldiers...

1 Samuel 29-31, Psalm 92

1 Samuel 29-31, Psalm 92

When we last left King Saul, he had consulted a medium when he didn’t hear from the Lord, where he learns that he and sons will die the following day. David almost joins the Philistine forces in the impending war against Saul, but the commanders don’t trust David like King Achish does. Returning to their settlement at Ziklag, they find their territory decimated and their families taken captive. After consulting the Lord, they pursue the Amalekites. On the way, David and his men redeem the life of a servant who had been discarded by his Amalekite master, and...
