A Bible Book A Day A Week


I have a daily goal of reading one chapter of the bible each day. It’s a habit I’ve done pretty consistently for awhile now. Recently I decided I wanted to read the through bible without repeating, so I created a list of all the books of the bible so I could check off and track which ones I had read. I also added the number of chapters so I could see which ones were short.

There are a few that are very short – Philemon being the one I remembered. Alexa informs me the shortest book is “3 John with only 219 words in the bible’s original language.” So I decided to make a list and schedule a week where I got my books read count up by reading a book a day.

Here it is for your edification:

    I’d recommend splitting Psalm 119 over a couple of days. 🙂

    I do virtually all my reading electronically these days, and I do the vast majority of my Bible reading on my Samsung tablet. I highly recommend the YouVersion app, which has reading plans of all sorts. I’ve used various “read the whole Bible in a year” plans over the past several years, and I highly recommend the plans that present the Bible in chronological order.

      Thanks Boyd. I’ve been using YouVersion for about the last year, but in the last month have converted over to using Accordance. Mostly because I do more indepth study and like to have all my notes in one place. Also Accordance lets me highlight/underline part of a verse and not the whole thing.

      Psalms in general is a problem with one chapter a day, even if 119 were one day. I’ve noticed sometimes I do more than one chapter in my current reading in a day. Then the next day I don’t have a reading. So I’ve started reading a chapter or two of Psalms to fill in these extra day. It’s weird but it works.
