Thank you for joining me in ReadPsalm119.com’s Psalm119 Memorization Challenge!
NEW and IMPROVING!! All relevant helps have been condensed, edited and are now on one downloadable file:
Memorization Challenge Intro.
(Includes “How to Use The Memorization Challenge Posters”, notes on the audio clips, and various resources and study methods. Click link below.)
Creating a Notebook (Opt). Print out the posters and fill-in-the-blank pages section at a time as you work toward memorization. You can insert the pages into page protectors (in a 3-ring binder) and use a write-on/wipe-off marker to fill in the blanks for reuse.
A FEW NOTES
These are free for your use. Please include the copyright and website information at the bottom of each page. Permission is not given for re-sale or unattributed distribution in any form. To share with others, please send them the original link to this website, or print and share.
NOTE: Currently, all memorization resources use the New International Version (NIV) translation of the Bible. I selected this version for its versatility with different reading abilities, its modern language, and its generally reliable translation. For other translations or paraphrases, please submit a request in the comment box below.
NEW!!: The English Standard Version (ESV) has been requested and Posters are now uploaded. NOTE: The KJV, ESV and RVR-Español versions of each passage are included after the prayers on the Prayers page (see Prayers Tab).
COMING!! AUDIO – God willing, I will now be working on completing the audio uploads for NIV, then ESV and will hopefully find a Spanish-speaking volunteer to record the Spanish.
Also, since reader Ruth has graciously commented that she is learning Psalm 119 in the Good News translation, I will be working on that version as well (both posters and audio). Ruth will probably have Psalm 119 memorized before I finish but I hope that including this translation will aid her as she “passes the baton” on memorization by including her church youth group in the fun! I am excited about including this easy-to-read translation! I am currently waiting on permissions from American Bible Society. Thank you, Ruth!
PSALM 119 – OCTRAINS
Each octrain (8-verse section) currently includes the following resources:
- NIV Posters with keywords in bold print + the same poster in fill-in-the-blank (FITB) format
- NIV Posters with reverse keywords* + FITB (*Same poster as above w/different keywords.)
- ESV Posters (NOW COMPLETE!)
Each octrain will also include an NIV Readalong Audio with other translations to follow.
PRAYER ANSWERED: Thanking the Lord for this time in His Word! The Prayers begin with the NIV and now have KJV, ESV, and RVR-Español versions below each prayer. THE ESV POSTERS ARE UPLOADED!!! Thank you to those who graciously take the time to pray!
PRAYER REQUESTS: Memorization Challenge AUDIO clips are to be completed in NIV next week, and then hopefully in ESV, KJV, and RVR-Español soon thereafter. TRANSLATIONS: Permissions are now being sought from the American Bible Society for the Good News Translation (GNT) editions of our printable memorization helps (see note at top, “Coming!”). Also, the Hebrew Aleph-Beth picture pages are in the ART stage. These will be for coloring pages, flashcard fronts, and as dividers for building the memorization notebook. Other memorization helps for each octrain will also be added as possible.
OTHER SCRIPTURE MEMORY
Psalm Summary of Contents
This Table of Contents of the Psalms (not just 119) is a little project that I did to help me remember key passages correlated to the correct chapter. The Book of Psalms is a large collection! I made this TOC to fit inside the blank pages at the end of a little book of Psalms I purchased (see PHOTO credit below). It fits into some sizes of Moleskines, the back of your Bible, or a any journal by trimming, taping and pasting into the pages. Download for free here as a sample. You may want to create your own custom cheat sheet in a new format.
This is offered here to give you an idea of creative ways we can all organize our study of God’s Word so that we not only read it, but we study it and organize all that we are learning so we can share it with others more easily.
Note that the Psalms are divided into “books”. These are shown in the notes.
