Bible studies for writers

Bible studies for writers | 1 Chronicles 20

In just six short paragraphs, we get the summary of four battles and three giants. We also see that as David got older, his kingdom grew right along with his wealth. I found this chapter a bit funny in terms of writing. The writer, who historians say might be Ezra, seems to sum up a whole bunch of events in very, very short accounts, which is a bit different than how he has presented other aspects of Israel under David’s rule. I probably noticed it because I can relate to it. In fact, I did it at work just the other day. I was writing summaries of several topics in one blog post, and by the time I got to the last one, I was like, oh, these words will do just fine. Type, type, type. Enter. Done. Nope backspace because I don’t like to leave a dangling line. Now Done. Preview. Publish. Move on to other stuff. I think that’s what Ezra did here. He was ready to move on to other stuff.
