The Bible Reading Plan
Readings for May 14:First, from Exodus Chapter 25 verse 31 to Chapter 26 verse 6. Follow that by reading from 1 Kings Chapter 17 verse 17 to Chapter 18 verse 24. The third part is Nehemiah Chapter 10 verses 14 to 36; and lastly John Chapter 2
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?
31"You shall make a lampstand of pure gold. Of hammered work shall the lampstand be made, even its base, its shaft, its cups, its buds, and its flowers, shall be of one piece with it. 32There shall be six branches going out of its sides: three branches of the lampstand out of its one side, and three branches of the lampstand out of its other side; 33three cups made like almond blossoms in one branch, a bud and a flower; and three cups made like almond blossoms in the other branch, a bud and a flower, so for the six branches going out of the lampstand; 34and in the lampstand four cups made like almond blossoms, its buds and its flowers; 35and a bud under two branches of one piece with it, and a bud under two branches of one piece with it, and a bud under two branches of one piece with it, for the six branches going out of the lampstand. 36Their buds and their branches shall be of one piece with it, all of it one beaten work of pure gold. 37You shall make its lamps seven, and they shall light its lamps to give light to the space in front of it. 38Its snuffers and its snuff dishes shall be of pure gold. 39It shall be made of a talent of pure gold, with all these accessories. 40See that you make them after their pattern, which has been shown to you on the mountain.
1"Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains; of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, with cherubim. The work of the skillful workman you shall make them. 2The length of each curtain shall be twenty-eight cubits, and the breadth of each curtain four cubits: all the curtains shall have one measure. 3Five curtains shall be coupled together one to another; and the other five curtains shall be coupled one to another. 4You shall make loops of blue on the edge of the one curtain from the edge in the coupling; and likewise you shall make in the edge of the curtain that is outmost in the second coupling. 5You shall make fifty loops in the one curtain, and you shall make fifty loops in the edge of the curtain that is in the second coupling. The loops shall be opposite one to another. 6You shall make fifty clasps of gold, and couple the curtains one to another with the clasps: and the tabernacle shall be a unit.
17It happened after these things, that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so severe, that there was no breath left in him. 18She said to Elijah, "What have I to do with you, you man of God

1The third day, there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee. Jesus' mother was there. 2Jesus also was invited, with his disciples, to the marriage. 3When the wine ran out, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no wine." 4Jesus said to her, "Woman, what does that have to do with you and me? My hour has not yet come." 5His mother said to the servants, "Whatever he says to you, do it." 6Now there were six water pots of stone set there after the Jews' way of purifying, containing two or three metretes apiece. 7Jesus said to them, "Fill the water pots with water." They filled them up to the brim. 8He said to them, "Now draw some out, and take it to the ruler of the feast." So they took it. 9When the ruler of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and didn't know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the ruler of the feast called the bridegroom, 10and said to him, "Everyone serves the good wine first, and when the guests have drunk freely, then that which is worse. You have kept the good wine until now!" 11This beginning of his signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him. 12After this, he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, his brothers, and his disciples; and they stayed there a few days. 13The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14He found in the temple those who sold oxen, sheep, and doves, and the changers of money sitting. 15He made a whip of cords, and threw all out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen; and he poured out the changers' money, and overthrew their tables. 16To those who sold the doves, he said, "Take these things out of here! Don't make my Father's house a marketplace!" 17His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for your house will eat me up." 18The Jews therefore answered him, "What sign do you show us, seeing that you do these things?" 19Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." 20The Jews therefore said, "It took forty-six years to build this temple! Will you raise it up in three days?" 21But he spoke of the temple of his body. 22When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he said this, and they believed the Scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. 23Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in his name, observing his signs which he did. 24But Jesus didn't trust himself to them, because he knew everyone, 25and because he didn't need for anyone to testify concerning man; for he himself knew what was in man.
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.
