The Bible Reading Plan
Readings for March 10:First, Genesis Chapter 40 verses 9 to 23. Follow that by reading from 1 Samuel Chapter 17 verse 55 to Chapter 18 verse 27. The third part is 2 Chronicles Chapter 15; and lastly Mark Chapter 11 verses 15 to 33
You can read the passages below. If you're looking to read for a different day or want to use your own Bible, then the entire year’s plan is below them in a table. Enjoy!
This is still very much a work in progress (if you want to help out then please check out the ‘Support this ministry’ page). I do plan to develop the code to:
- Enable a checklist so you can ‘mark as read’
- provide alternative arrangements of the readings for variety
- Any other requests?
9The chief cupbearer told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, "In my dream, behold, a vine was in front of me, 10and in the vine were three branches. It was as though it budded, its blossoms shot forth, and its clusters brought forth ripe grapes. 11Pharaoh's cup was in my hand; and I took the grapes, and pressed them into Pharaoh's cup, and I gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand." 12Joseph said to him, "This is its interpretation: the three branches are three days. 13Within three more days, Pharaoh will lift up your head, and restore you to your office. You will give Pharaoh's cup into his hand, the way you did when you were his cupbearer. 14But remember me when it will be well with you, and please show kindness to me, and make mention of me to Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house. 15For indeed, I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews, and here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the dungeon." 16When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said to Joseph, "I also was in my dream, and behold, three baskets of white bread were on my head. 17In the uppermost basket there was all kinds of baked food for Pharaoh, and the birds ate them out of the basket on my head." 18Joseph answered, "This is its interpretation. The three baskets are three days. 19Within three more days, Pharaoh will lift up your head from off you, and will hang you on a tree; and the birds will eat your flesh from off you." 20It happened the third day, which was Pharaoh's birthday, that he made a feast for all his servants, and he lifted up the head of the chief cupbearer and the head of the chief baker among his servants. 21He restored the chief cupbearer to his position again, and he gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand; 22but he hanged the chief baker, as Joseph had interpreted to them. 23Yet the chief cupbearer didn't remember Joseph, but forgot him.
55When Saul saw David go forth against the Philistine, he said to Abner, the captain of the army, "Abner, whose son is this youth?" Abner said, "As your soul lives, O king, I can't tell." 56The king said, "Inquire whose son the young man is!" 57As David returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, Abner took him, and brought him before Saul with the head of the Philistine in his hand. 58Saul said to him, "Whose son are you, you young man?" David answered, "I am the son of your servant Jesse the Bethlehemite."
1It happened, when he had made an end of speaking to Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. 2Saul took him that day, and would let him go no more home to his father's house. 3Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul. 4Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was on him, and gave it to David, and his clothing, even to his sword, and to his bow, and to his sash. 5David went out wherever Saul sent him, [and] behaved himself wisely: and Saul set him over the men of war, and it was good in the sight of all the people, and also in the sight of Saul's servants. 6It happened as they came, when David returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, that the women came out of all the cities of Israel, singing and dancing, to meet king Saul, with tambourines, with joy, and with instruments of music. 7The women sang one to another as they played, and said, "Saul has slain his thousands, David his ten thousands." 8Saul was very angry, and this saying displeased him; and he said, "They have ascribed to David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed but thousands. What can he have more but the kingdom?" 9Saul eyed David from that day and forward. 10It happened on the next day, that an evil spirit from God

15They came to Jerusalem, and Jesus entered into the temple, and began to throw out those who sold and those who bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of those who sold the doves. 16He would not allow anyone to carry a container through the temple. 17He taught, saying to them, "Isn't it written, 'My house will be called a house of prayer for all the nations?' But you have made it a den of robbers!" 18The chief priests and the scribes heard it, and sought how they might destroy him. For they feared him, because all the multitude was astonished at his teaching. 19When evening came, he went out of the city. 20As they passed by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered away from the roots. 21Peter, remembering, said to him, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree which you cursed has withered away." 22Jesus answered them, "Have faith in God. 23For most certainly I tell you, whoever may tell this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and doesn't doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is happening; he shall have whatever he says. 24Therefore I tell you, all things whatever you pray and ask for, believe that you have received them, and you shall have them. 25Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone; so that your Father, who is in heaven, may also forgive you your transgressions. 26[Some doubt the authenticity of this - But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your transgressions."] 27They came again to Jerusalem, and as he was walking in the temple, the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders came to him, 28and they began saying to him, "By what authority do you do these things? Or who gave you this authority to do these things?" 29Jesus said to them, "I will ask you one question. Answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. 30The baptism of John - was it from heaven, or from men? Answer me." 31They reasoned with themselves, saying, "If we should say, 'From heaven;' he will say, 'Why then did you not believe him?' 32If we should say, 'From men'" - they feared the people, for all held John to really be a prophet. 33They answered Jesus, "We don't know." Jesus said to them, "Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things."
Readings for the Year:
Ooh isn’t it pretty? Well I like it anyway! More seriously the colours can help you (just a little bit) if you have coloured ribbons as dividers in your Bible to quickly get to the relevant section.
