Day 132 of the podcast, reading 2 Chronicles 5-8 NET, read along at:
This is day 132 of our journey.
With the completion of the temple of the Lord, Solomon holds a great festival to celebrate. He brings the ark of the covenant into its place in the temple and he offers thousands of sacrifices to feed the people as they worship the Lord. During the festival, Solomon prays a blessing over the people and worships the Lord for keeping his promises to his father David. The Lord, in turn, renews his covenant with the people and promises to always be with them and listen to their prayers. He also warns that, if they refuse to follow him, he will remove himself from their presence and allow hardship to come upon them. But, in that case, the Lord is always faithful and he will forgive Israel and draw near to them once again if they will confess their sins and return to Him.
