Aleph Readalong

Do you still remember Aleph?

The ReadPsalm119 Memorization Challenge is an ongoing activity for this website. It is good to memorize, then rest, then come again for review. This method seals in the memorization for better long-time storage. Today, I am offering an audio version of Aleph. Listen, and follow along with the fill-in-the-blank visual.


_______ are those whose ____ are _________, 
    who ____ according to the ___ of the ____. 
_______ are those who ____ his ________

Photo: The banner for our ReadPsalm119 Readalongs is of a “Sephardic Torah Scroll”. I snapped this picture at the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. The inscription reads: “Iberian Peninsula and Central Europe, ca. AD 1200s and 1800s; Manuscript on Gevil in Hebrew; MOTB SCR 000748. Because this extremely early Sephardic scroll was later joined together with a more recent Polish scroll, it was saved from being ceremonially buried or placed in a genizah.”

I used this photo because of the Hebraic habit of communal reading, discussion, and memorization of scripture that this open scroll brings to mind. God intends that we study and learn His Word in community with others, and reading aloud was a large part of that study habit.
