June 18: Proverbs 19; 1Chronicles 23-26

From The Inside Out

Hear My Prayer

Christ The True And Better Adam

from Proverbs 19

Better is the poor who walks in his integrity
Than one who is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
Also it is not good for a soul to be without knowledge,
And he sins who hastens with his feet.
The foolishness of a man twists his way,
And his heart frets against the LORD.
Wealth makes many friends,
But the poor is separated from his friend.
A false witness will not go unpunished,
And he who speaks lies will not escape.
Many entreat the favor of the nobility,
And every man is a friend to one who gives gifts.
All the brothers of the poor hate him;
How much more do his friends go far from him!
He may pursue them with words, yet they abandon him.
He who gets wisdom loves his own soul;
He who keeps understanding will find good.
A false witness will not go unpunished,
And he who speaks lies shall perish.
Luxury is not fitting for a fool,
Much less for a servant to rule over princes.
The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger,
And his glory is to overlook a transgression.
The king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion,
But his favor is like dew on the grass.
A foolish son is the ruin of his father,
And the contentions of a wife are a continual dripping.
Houses and riches are an inheritance from fathers,
But a prudent wife is from the LORD.
Laziness casts one into a deep sleep,
And an idle person will suffer hunger.
He who keeps the commandment keeps his soul,
But he who is careless of his ways will die.
He who has pity on the poor lends to the LORD,
And He will pay back what he has given.
Chasten your son while there is hope,
And do not set your heart on his destruction.
A man of great wrath will suffer punishment;
For if you rescue him, you will have to do it again.
Listen to counsel and receive instruction,
That you may be wise in your latter days.
There are many plans in a man’s heart,
Nevertheless the LORD’S counsel—that will stand.
What is desired in a man is kindness,
And a poor man is better than a liar.
The fear of the LORD leads to life,
And he who has it will abide in satisfaction;
He will not be visited with evil.
A lazy man buries his hand in the bowl,
And will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
Strike a scoffer, and the simple will become wary;
Rebuke one who has understanding, and he will discern knowledge.
He who mistreats his father and chases away his mother
Is a son who causes shame and brings reproach.
Cease listening to instruction, my son,
And you will stray from the words of knowledge.
A disreputable witness scorns justice,
And the mouth of the wicked devours iniquity.
Judgments are prepared for scoffers,
And beatings for the backs of fools.

from 1Chronicles 23

when David was old and full of days, he made his son Solomon king over Israel. And he gathered together all the leaders of Israel, with the priests and the Levites. Now the Levites were numbered from the age of thirty years and above; and the number of individual males was thirty-eight thousand. Of these, twenty-four thousand were to look after the work of the house of the LORD, six thousand were officers and judges, four thousand were gatekeepers, and four thousand praised the LORD with musical instruments, “which I made,” said David, “for giving praise.”

from 1Chronicles 24

these are the divisions of the sons of Aaron.

from 1Chronicles 25

David and the captains of the army separated for the service some of the sons of Asaph, of Heman, and of Jeduthun, who should prophesy with harps, stringed instruments, and cymbals. And the number of the skilled men performing their service was..

from 1Chronicles 26

Concerning the divisions of the gatekeepers:..

Of the Levites, Ahijah was over the treasuries of the house of God and over the treasuries of the dedicated things.

Of the Hebronites, Hashabiah and his brethren, one thousand seven hundred able men, had the oversight of Israel on the west side of the Jordan for all the business of the LORD, and in the service of the king.
