The name 'Chronicles' is a translation of the Hebrew title, 'The Matters of the Days'.
The First Book of Chronicles is the thirteenth book of the Bible. It charts the same events as the Second Book of Samuel, though where Samuel describes the political history of King David, the First Book of Chronicles describes the spiritual history.
"And David said to all the congregation, Now bless the Lord your God. And all the congregation blessed the Lord God of their fathers, and bowed down their heads, and worshipped the Lord, and the king. And they sacrificed sacrifices unto the Lord, and offered burnt offerings unto the Lord, on the morrow after that day, even a thousand bullocks, a thousand rams, and a thousand lambs, with their drink offerings, and sacrifices in abundance for all Israel"
