 OLD TESTAMENT Poem for memorization of Scripture...

 

 

 In GENESIS, the world was made;

 

 In EXODUS, the march was told;

 

 LEVITICUS contains the Law;

 

 In NUMBERS are the tribes enrolled.

 

 

 

 In DEUTERONOMY again,

 

 We're urged to keep God's law alone;

 

 And these five books of Moses make

 

 The oldest holy writing known.

 

 

 

 Brave JOSHUA to Canaan leads;

 

 In JUDGES oft the Jews rebel;

 

 We read of David's name in RUTH

 

 And FIRST and SECOND SAMUEL.

 

 

 

 In FIRST and SECOND KINGS we read

 

 How bad the Hebrew state became;

 

 In FIRST and SECOND CHRONICLES

 

 Another history of the same.

 

 

 

 In EZRA, captive Jews return,

 

 And NEHEMIAH builds the wall;

 

 Queen ESTHER saves her race from death;

 

 These books "historical" we call.

 

 

 

 In JOB we read of patient faith;

 

 In PSALMS are David's songs of praise;

 

 The PROVERBS are to make us wise;

 

 ECCLESIASTES next protrays,

 

 

 

 How fleeting earthly pleasures are;

 

 The SONG OF SOLOMON is all

 

 About true love, like Christ's, and these

 

 Five books "Devotional" we call.

 

 

 

 ISAIAH tells of Christ to come,

 

 While JEREMIAH tells of woe,

 

 And in his LAMENTATIONS mourns

 

 The Holy City's overthrow.

 

 

 

 EZEKIAL speaks of mysteries;

 

 And DANIEL foretells kings of old;

 

 HOSEA over Israel grieves;

 

 In JOEL blessings are foretold.

 

 

 

 In AMOS, too, are Israel's woes;

 

 And OBADIAH's sent to warn,

 

 While JONAH shows that Christ should die

 

 And MICAH where He should be born.

 

 

 

 In HAHUM Nineveh is seen;

 

 HABAKKUK tells of Chaldea's guilt;

 

 In ZEPHANIAH are Judah's sins;

 

 In HAGGAI the Temple's built.

 

 

 

 Then ZECHARIAH speaks of Christ;

 

 And MALACHI of John, His sing;

 

 The Prophets number seventeen,

 

 And all the books are thirty-nine...
