1 Chronicles 15

Verse 15, the three famed Psalmists, Asaph, Heyman, and Ethan are all mentioned. Curious that all the work under their names is not contemporaneous with David, but clearly reflects the exile. All the names in the many many chapters filled with names tend to solidify the story as they fall into place as I note repetition of the names and sometimes different spellings. But without reading the whole at such a painfully slow pace as we have, I could never have noticed. Nor would I have noticed without the computer suggestions if it were only my own memory I was relying on. How many Bob's can one keep track of?

About reading, I would not want to discourage anyone from the reading of these artifacts or from their music, but there are plenty of wrong reasons for reading, such as a lust for power, or a defense of emotional or psychological territory. All potential distractions fall into these two categories.  But this tradition, so loved by the Hebrews, is a foundation, and the matter of reading it is somewhat inexpressible.

For Michal verse 29 check out 2 Samuel 6.15. (The verbs describing David will give you a chuckle.)
