And Shaphan read it before the king.

                (2 Chronicles 34:18)


God has chosen to disclose himself in the Word. That Word parts the curtain which permits humans to know as much about God as mere humans can possibly know. There is something significant about reading the Word of God. In the ancient world there was no such thing as reading silently like we do today. Those who first received the Scriptures read the Word of God out loud. Likewise, we will all experience the power of the Word of God when we read it out LOUD.
