I again have very little to say about this book. I doubt I’ll have much to say about the next one either. Both 1st and 2nd Chronicles are really just repeats of what I’ve already discussed.
The 2nd part of 1 Chronicles talked about David. Since I’ve already asked a ton of questions about David, I don’t have much to add to the list.
The one thing I do have to say is this: 1 Chronicles says that Satan rose up against David. I don’t remember that being said before. Satan hasn’t really been brought up very often at all. So why is this claim being made now? Is it a result of certain changes experienced by the authors? Is it a different tactic used to get people to follow Yahweh and give up the worship of other gods? Or did the earlier authors simply view Satan’s role as unimportant or obvious? There has to be a reason why this (and other) new details were added when they weren’t there before.
