The books of Chronicles cover many of the events narrated elsewhere in the Bible. Close reading however will show many differences between the accounts. The Chronicler, for example, avoids all reference, unless forced, to the northern kingdom of Israel, focusing instead on the kingdom of Judah. Smaller differences include the Chronicler's account of Solomon dedicating the temple from a podium and the Chronicler's ignoring of David's great sin, Bathsheba. This parallel, by placing the narratives side by side, allows in depth comparative study of these differences. The parallel uses the L.C.L. Brenton translation of the Septuagint and the Darby literal translation for its text. Together they offer the student easy comparison between the different treatments of the same events.
