We look again at the reign of King David in 1 Chronicles. But while we cover the same history as in Samuel and Kings, we will find a very different theme. Chronicles deals with the plan of God and show this in the genealogy at the beginning of the book and the emphasis on worship and the preparations for the construction of the temple. Our summary verse comes from 1 Chronicles 29:12: “Both riches and honor come from You, and You rule over all, and in Your hand is power and might; and it lies in Your hand to make great and to strengthen everyone” (NASB).
