Monday Progress Report



I have made some progress in memorizing Psalm 91 this past week. I think my punctuation has improved somewhat... maybe... a little?

For me, there are two keys to memorizing Scripture: 1) Reading it slowly at first, absorbing the meaning of each word, and thus recording the details in my mind, and 2) Reading the whole passage often, so that it all flows together and I don't get stuck.

Here is what I have memorized so far, typing from memory:

Psalm 91:1-13

"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in him will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust. His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

There shall no evil befall thee; neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet."

We've begun as a family to memorize scripture in Portuguese. Not an easy task for me and the kids...

You're on a roll over here, Tammy. Fantastic!

Mega, mega memory! Wow, you're doing so great!

Tammy said...

Awesome! I'm working on a shorter one but haven't quite got there yet. Also, it is the 23rd Psalm that most people have already memorized but I have never really tried whole passages before.

I know that I am ahead of everyone, but way to go Sweetie for getting all of Psalm 91!

For the challange Psalm 100 in Spanish was a quick challange for me. Got that down now and am heading on to either Salmo 119 or all those small chapters around it.

Good job Tammy!
