Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 78:63-72. In this portion of Psalm 78, Asaph tells us that God chose the tribe of Judah because the tribe of Ephraim rebelled. Who was the tribe of Judah? Why were they significant to God?
God poured out His wrath on the tribe of Ephraim. The young men were consumed with fire, and because of this the maidens were unable to marry. Even the priests indulged in sin and fell by the sword, and the widows didn’t weep over their loss.
God built His tabernacle in Zion. He took David from the sheepfolds and chose him to be a servant of God. David was crowned king and was put in charge of leading the people of Israel. In this Scripture we see how people’s choices can cause them either to be lifted up by God or to be destroyed because of their rebellion against God.
Daily Bible Reading:
63 The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage.
64 Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation.
65 Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.
66 And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach.
67 Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim:
68 But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.
69 And he built his sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth which he hath established for ever.
70 He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds:
71 From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.
72 So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.
Things to think about:
- Why was the tribe of Ephraim not chosen by God?
- Why was the tribe of Judah chosen by God?
- In this Scripture, who did God choose to lead His people?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 78. In this Scripture we see where You lifted some up because of their obedience, and caused some to fall because of their rebellion against You. Help us to be obedient children of God. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

About the book:
The Book of Psalms:Part 3 Chapters 61-90 by Deborah H. Bateman is 28th book in the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Deborah divided The Book of Psalms into five books to make it easier to read and study. Each book contains approximately thirty chapters from the book of Psalms.
Psalm 119 will not be included in The Book of Psalms since Deborah has already published a book about it called: Psalm 119: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet.
The book of Psalms is one of Deborah’s favorite books of the Bible. It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from his enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
The Book of Psalms: Part 3 Chapters 61-90 contains fifty Daily Bible Reading Lessons. Each lesson contains a brief commentary by the author, the Daily Bible Reading Scriptures, a few questions for contemplation or discussion, and a prayer of the day. It is a great Bible study for individuals or group studies.
