I’m finding it very difficult to read straight through as I had planned. I found a guide online that I think I’m going to try. It separates types of readings based on the day of the week. I will end up covering some of the material I have already been through, but I don’t suppose that really matters too much.

These readings are very slow-going for me. I’m reading in two languages, and therefore, it takes me double time for each chapter.
Genesis 18: Destruction of Soddom and Gomorrah discussed.
Genesis 19: Lot taken from Soddom… Cities destroyed. Lot’s wife turns into pillar of salt. Lot’s daughters lay with him.
Genesis 20: Abraham and Sarah in Gerar (King Abimelech).
I haven’t had my Bible for a few days, as I left it at my mother’s house. However, I did get it back recently, and have resumed with my readings.
These few chapters are about Abram being renamed Abraham and his covenant with God regarding circumcision, Hagar bearing Ishmael, etc.
It’s a little slow-going for me, as I’m reading it in two languages, but I’ve made a little progress… I’m up to Genesis 16. It’s a little hard to make time when I’m trying to finish up this semester, and well, I guess wasting time online doesn’t help much either.
“There were giants in the earth in those days and also after that…”
Tonight I didn’t do much reading… I actually haven’t read much at all the last few days. I did get through a couple of short chapters in Genesis.
I found a guide to reading the Bible in a year at the back of my Bible. I’m starting with Genesis 1-26 in the first week. Today, I read the first four chapters, but to complicate matters, I’m reading it in both English and Spanish. My Bible has side-by-side translations in the King James Version. The formal Spanish is rather difficult, but I’m getting through it.
