Special thanks to Amazing Bible Timeline for this wonderful information.

I typed this poem 7 years ago and taped it neatly in the front of my Bible. I love it and read it often.

God's Treasure

There is a treasure,
Rich beyond measure,
Offered to mortals today;
Some folks despise it,
Some criticize it,
Some would explain it away.

Some never read it,
Some never head it,
Some say "It's long had it's day";
Some people prize it,
And he who tried it,
Finds it's his comfort and stay.

God gave this treasure,
Rich beyond measure,
His Word, we call it today.
Let us believe it,
Gladly receive it,
Read, mark and learn to obey.

~A.M.N.

  3. Your welcome. It's a good thing to know our Bibles inside and out. The more we know our Bible the more we know God.

  4. Thank you so much for sharing. My beloved an I read through it together Friday evening. We both enjoyed it immensely. He asked who you were, so I shared where you lived, etc. and he was so happy. He and my oldest recently went on a missionary trip to Peru with our church, and it was an eye opening experience for both. I found a great fact that I did not know also about the names of the children of Jacob. I will see if I can post it on my blog in a couple of minutes. First I have a kitchen to go clean up.
