Focus Verse For Today: 1 Chronicles 9:2

Our journey through 1 Chronicles 5-9 today takes a chronological detour at chapter 9.

Ask God for His understanding of chapter’s 5-9 or 1 Chronicles. Read 1 Chronicles 5-9. Let’s journey!

 

1 Chronicles 5-9 can be divided into two sections. The first is chapters 5:1-9:1. These chapters share the genealogy of the 12 tribes of Israel with us giving a brief description of their skills. The genealogy ends at the time period the people of Israel are entering the promised land. Chapter 9:2-34 describes the earliest return of the people of Israel from Babylonian captivity. (1 Chronicles 5:1-9:34)

 

Our focus verse for today:

 

Now the first to resettle on their own property in their own towns were some Israelites, priests, Levites and temple servants.  (1 Chronicles 9:2, NIV)

 

The Chronicler takes the reader to Saul, the first King of Israel, and his sons, and skips over the entire history of the norther and southern kingdoms and takes us to the return of the Israelites to Jerusalem from Babylonian captivity. The first to return were those who delivered worship services, and maintained the temple for worship. God’s chosen people understood the importance of worshiping their deliverer. Unfortunately, man has a habit of forgetting the oppression that reminded him of his need for God, leading him to return to worldly ways.
