Hello, y’all, I have a few rhetorical questions for you prompted by a disturbing realization that I am in the process of rectifying.
Last evening with lights out for the night and in the quiet before sleep I was running Scripture through the halls of my mind and I discovered that I could not quote the whole of Psalm 23. Parts were missing! I reached for my phone, selected my Bible app, and read Psalm 23 more than once.
What if you could not lay your hands on your Bible app or your leather-bound copy of Holy Writ, how many verses of Scripture could you run through your mind?
How many verses of comfort, strength, wisdom, instruction, direction, remedies for fear, and the like would you be able to lay hold to with no access to a printed Bible or a Digital One?
It’s something to ponder, isn’t it?
Let’s say you do have your leather-bound Copy but no working URL window to type in the few words you can remember of a particular verse, how long would it take you to find it in your leather-bound copy of your Bible?
1 The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
A few more.
Do you have a paper and ink copy of the Bible?

Do you read more than one translation?
Do you have a favored translation for study and another for just pleasure reading?
Do you read Scripture just for the pleasure of it?
