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. If you click on the reference, it will open an online Bible at that point.
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:
|Day of the Week||First Reading||Second Reading||Third Reading|
|The Book of Proverbs.|
|75th Week. Prov.22-31.|
|76th Week. (Ecclesiastes is chiefly concerned with what is under the Sun. Compare Col.3:1-4).|
|Canticles (Song of Songs).|
|(The Canticles, compared-many other portions of Scripture, is like a spring shut up, a fountain sealed. Many readers will read it over and over again before they are able in any notable degree-appreciate it. Nor will exposition help here so much as in some other books. It is a book-and for the heart. For this reason we give short portions only and urge readers to read the daily portion again and again prayerfully; to try in measure at least to commit some of its beautiful phrases to memory. Then later on perhaps they will be able to enter into them and appreciate them. We may say that the Song of Solomon is like a closed garden difficult of access compared with the book of Proverbs, which is like a public wood, where almost everybody may enter and pluck the nuts and crack them.)|
|77th Week. Canticles, that is Solomon's Song of Songs.|
