As an interesting side-note, the original Hebrew titles of these books were taken from the first verse of each book. Thus the real God-inspired book titles are: “In the Beginning,” “These are the Names,” “The Lord Called,” “In the Wilderness,” and “These are the Words.” 5 Read these book titles as a sentence. The first chapter of Genesis remains a great stumbling block for the modern mind. Charles Darwin himself discarded a mild Protestant faith when he concluded that the author of Genesis was a bad geologist. To his mind, the biblical six days of creation and Lyell's Principles of Geology could not both. Also The Holy Bible, King James Version (American Bible Society, New York; ) was used for some references that are better known in the wording of the King James Version. When not stated, the verses are from The Holy Bible, New International Version (NIV). All verses and references are given in standard form of Book, Chapter: Verse -- as. So it shall be on the day when you cross the Jordan to the land which the Lord your God gives you, that you shall set up for yourself large stones and coat them with lime and write on them all the words of this law, when you cross over, so that you may enter the land which the Lord your God gives you, a land flowing with milk and honey, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, promised you.

But finding the book, chapter and verse is abysmal. There needs to be some type of indexing and navigation to at least find the beginning of the books of the bible and preferably the chapters as well. The only thing you can do now is guess which Part and Chapter a book of the bible begins in and listen until you can confirm it.

  Starting each line of poetry in the second section of Psalm is the second letter of the Hebrew alphabet, ב (beth). Because of its acrostic structure, Psalm is one of the few chapters of the Bible where the verse divisions are inspired by God. Other verse divisions in the Old Testament were assigned by a Jewish rabbi named Nathan in AD.   Normally I post an entire chapter from a book of the bible, highlighting a few verses. In this post, I will highlight verses from all 8 chapters of the Song of Solomon (aka the Song of Songs). Therefore, I will not post the entire text of all 8 chapters. Please read the entire book if you feel verses are taken out of context. Song of Solomon 1.
