Interested in taking on a commitment to read the whole Bible over three years? You will read the New Testament twice and the Old Testament once over the three year cycle.
Three readings per day are supplied. The first is generally a whole chapter, and the second may be too (but longer chapters are split conveniently). The third reading is much shorter, and provides verses related to the other readings for the day. You may find it easier to do the short reading at lunch time (if you get a lunch break!). How you tackle the readings is up to you; the big thing is committing to get them done each day, whenever you choose to do them.
The following table provides the readings for the current week. We’ll update the table weekly, so you’ll just have to keep up!
Here it is (put your cursor over the reference and it will appear in a box):
|Day of the Week||First Reading||Second Reading||Third Reading|
|Before reading the conclusion of the story of David's reign we commence reading the Book of Psalms. Of Ps.1-41, forming Book 1, read in the next three weeks, at least thirty-seven were written by David.|
|N.B.—Some of the portions are very short, as it is not thought desirable to read two psalms in one portion unless they are very short psalms indeed. It is, therefore, suggested that when the portion is less than sixteen verses, it should be read slowly two or three times or else committed-memory. The average length of a psalm is sixteen verses. About forty-six of the first seventy-two psalms are shorter than this and about fifteen do not exceed eight verses.|
|The Book of Psalms:|
|55th Week. Ps.1-17.|
|S.||Ps.16||Ps.17||Acts 2:25-28; Acts 13:35|
|56th Week. Ps.18-28.|
