Below are a couple of Bible In Poems random poem selections

Proverbs 14-20

Proverbs 21:1-31:31

The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord, He turns it where He will.
The wicked may think they've it all figured out, but Jehovah is in charge still.

You may do battle with a horse and a sword.
But safety comes by trusting the Lord.

A good name is better than all men's riches.
Be humble. Don't be too big for your britches.

Train up a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old sin will not overthrow.

Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child.
The rod of correction, shall make him less wild.

Help the poor and afflicted, God pleads their cause.
If you befriend the angry, might end up in his jaws.

My son, eat thou honey, my favorite command.
The honeycomb is good. It's sweetness in hand.

Fret not yourself of evil men. For the candle of the wicked will come to an end.

If your enemy be hungry then give him bread.
For this shall heap fire coals upon his head.

A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass,
a rod for the fool's back, 'cause he has no class.

As a dog returns to its vomit, so also a fool to his folly.
The wise is prudent and holds his tongue. One's clueless, the other is jolly.

Boast not in tomorrow, for we don't know, what another day may bring.
Let another praise you and not your own lips. Self praise doesn't get you a thing.

Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the enemies kiss is deceit.
As iron sharpens iron, so a friend, a friend when they meet.

The wicked run when no man pursues. The righteous are bold as a lion.
The man who turns the righteous away, is the man who soon will be dyin'.

When righteous rule, the people rejoice. When the wicked reign, they morn.
Where there is no vision the people perish. With wisdom rejoicing is born.

Every word of God is pure. A shield in which you can trust
Remove all vanity and lies. The fool will be brought to the dust.

Who can find a virtuous woman. A most precious and valuable wife.
In her, her husband will safely trust. She will do him good all of his life.

She works with her hands, considereth lands, and cares for all in her house.
She helps those cast down. Her wisdom's profound. She's called blessed by her kids and her spouse.

Favor's deceitful and beauty is vain. But not so, the fear of the Lord.
Give her praises and honor the fruit of her hands. She deserves a full reward.


The New Covenant

Jeremiah 34:1-38:28

This captivity will cleanse the transgressors away.
Then all Israel and Judah will rejoice in that day.

My covenant is sure, and I'll give you a token.
You can't stop night and day, and my word won't be broken.

Now remember Jeremiah's in a pit at this time.
It's muddy, disgusting, he's covered in slime.

Write scroll for the king, and give it to him.
The king burns it up. God says, write it again.

Then the king got to thinking, with Jerusalem surrounded,
Jeremiah's been right. My unbelief is unfounded.

He had Jeremiah pulled up from that horrible pit.
Still locked up, an improvement, if just a slight bit.

He secretly met with the prophet and asked,
What has God told you. I'll listen at last.

You'll listen and kill me, Jeremiah replied.
I promise I won't, and this time I've not lied.

You must give yourself up or the city will burn.
The king did not listen. Will he ever learn.

Finally all but the poorest were carried away.
Jerusalem and the kings house were all burned that day.
