Psa 145:1 David’s Psalm of praise. I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.
Psa 145:2 Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.
Psa 145:3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
Yesterday’s reading cover a lot of ground. I tried looking up family tree images of the names in Chronicles….it gets quite complex very quickly.
I found one interesting quote, which relates back to Genesis 4&5….
Well, Adam and Eve did have other “sons and daughters” [Genesis 5:5]. I think the The Condensed Biblical Cyclopedia tried to spare us the uncomfortable imagery children of Cain and Seth mating with their uncles and aunts, the children of Adam and Eve, with this hokey explanation that the children of Seth (“sons of God”) mated with the Children of Cain (“daughters of men”) [Genesis 6:2].
There are also a couple of more detailed charts which can be seen here:
Both are hard to read, try to find the high resolution versions.

Besides the 1 Chronicles lists, the Hebrews Chapter is amazing.
Heb 8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
Heb 8:9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
Heb 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
Heb 8:11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
Heb 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
Heb 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
As is this famous Amos 2 passage, about Judgment on Judah.
Amo 2:4 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have despised the law of the LORD, and have not kept his commandments, and their lies caused them to err, after the which their fathers have walked:
Amo 2:5 But I will send a fire upon Judah, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem.
