Where in the Bible will I find…?

2nd Timothy 3:16-17 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”

I trust, hope, and pray that you are doing well so far this week. As always, I encourage you to get into the word of God on a daily basis. Have you read your Bible today? Let us also continue to pray for our nation’s defenders and our first responders. Please pray for rain we’re still awful dry! Our question for the week is; “Where in the Bible will I find the same thing said in every verse of a whole chapter?”
They say that repetition reinforces things in the brain, for instance hear something enough and you will start to believe it, whether it is true or not. There are many verses in the Bible that have parallel verses that may be a direct repetition or somewhat of a paraphrase. Sometimes writers of one book in the Bible will quote verses from another writer, that is not unusual. If you go to the book of Psalms however, you will note in Psalm 136:1-26 the phrase “…for his mercy endureth forever.” In each and every verse, I won’t write out every verse but here are the first four: Psalm 136:1-4 “O give thanks unto the LORD for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever. O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth forever. O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth forever. To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth forever.” This continues through the 26th verse, you can’t read this chapter without getting the idea that “… his mercy endureth forever.” Think about it!
