Following the Blue Letter Bible chronological reading plan, they list these two psalms beside Obadiah. Having finished Obadiah, I suspect they misplaced it too early in Old Testament events, although this seems to be debated without a decisive conclusion.

So, I suspect these may feel a it out of order, as well. But I suspect they are tied to Obadiah, so I would like to read them together.

Then I will begin II Kings.

Pausing before reading II Kings to read this minor prophet, based on the Blue Letter Bible chronological reading plan.

The Ryrie Study Bible footnote reminds us that there are 12 men named Obadiah in the Old Testament. We know nothing about this one except that his name means "Servant of God". The NIV bible also notes that it means "servant of God"; but Wiersbe translates it as "on who worships God."

Kings Jehoshaphat and Ahab are both dead. We've finished I Kings and now II Kings and II Chronicles spreads out over the chronological timeline. The Blue Letter Bible (BLB) chronological reading plan lists Obadiah now, prior to beginning II Kings. Although this is disputed.

Many of these may be similar to the I King stories, but with more information about Judah's story. While much of this may have been touched on previously, this is new reading for me in II Chronicles.

I took a close look at these chapters recently, so this will be a high-level brief look back at these events.

Starting with the sons of Rehoboam and Jeroboam, we'll see the kingdoms further division and their relationships with the Lord. This is briefer summary, since I have recently covered these chapters.

Continued refresher, as I am going back through some of I Kings and II Chronicles that I've already reviewed before resuming my attempt at chronologically reading the Old Testament.

I have been on a very long journey to read the Old Testament in chronological order, which (once passed the first few books) is much more difficult than I would have guessed. Once I got passed the divided kingdom and it was going to take a few different books at once to move forward, I made a decision to go back and read more of the end of the united kingdom before it got too far away. So I read some Psalms, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon.

Now, I am heading back to the narrative; but as a refresher, I am going to read through some I Kings and II Chronicles that I've already reviewed.
