Fowler Digital Books | The KJV Bible Memory Version: A Tool for Treasuring God's Word in Your Heart (King James Version), by Ray Fowler

This sample page shows you how The Bible Memory Version works. Try out the following instructions on the sample passages below. Remember that the actual book contains the complete text of the Bible along with many other helpful resources for Bible memory.

 

Instructions

1. Pick a passage to memorize. Read the first verse all the way through. Next say the first phrase of the verse out loud and click on the verse number. This will change the display from full-verse to first-letter view (i.e. the first letter of each word in the verse).

2. Try saying the phrase from memory using the first letters as a guide. If you get stuck, just click on the verse number to switch back to full-verse view. Go back and forth a phrase at a time until you can say the whole verse using just the first letters. Repeat with the next verse and so on.

3. Once you can say the whole passage using only the first letters, try saying the passage without looking at the letters. If you get stuck, use the letters as a guide. This method is based on memory research which shows that recalling information is a much more effective way to memorize than merely repeating information. You will find this a very effective way to memorize Scripture.

Hint: To work on a whole passage at once, just click back and forth on the first verse of the passage.

Psalm 23 (KJV)

1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth 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 thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth 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 for ever.

Matthew 5:3-10 (The Beatitudes)

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

1 Corinthians 13 (The Love Chapter)

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
