Books of the Bible

Went looking for this today, and took me an age to find! I’d remembered part of it, but couldn’t for the life of me remember the rest, so here its – the Old & the New Testament:
In the beginning was Genesis and Exodus
Followed by Leviticus, and Numbers
1 2 3 4 5 Deuteronomy
Joshua, Judges, Ruth

Up comes Samuel 1 and 2
Then Two books of Kings, and Two books of Chronicles
Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther, Job
And 150 Psalms,- how many? 150 Psalms!

So learn as you go, that’s all you gotta do
Close your eyes, start to revise
The books in the Old and the books in the New

Several hundred Proverbs, if you please
And tales of woe from Ecclesiastes
Solomon’s spicy Song of Songs
Isaiah, Jeremiah, then Lamentations

Ezekiel, and Daniel
Hosea, Joel and Amos
Obadiah, Jonah and his whale
Not forgetting all the lions in the Daniel tale

Micah (who’s car?) Micah! Nahum
Habakkuk, Zephaniah
Haggai (what a guy), Zechariah
And right at the end there’s Malachi

How many books can you count in the old
And how many in the new?
Add them together it’s 66
Count as you go that’s all you gotta do

So learn as you go, that’s all you gotta do
Close your eyes, start to revise
The books in the Old and the books in the New

Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
Acts and Romans follow on
Letters to Corinthians 1 and 2
That talk about the things we ought to do

There’s a letter to Galatians, and a letter to Ephesians
If there’s not enough work for the postman to do
There’s one to Phillipians, and one to Colossians
And two to the chaps called Thessalonians

So learn as you go, that’s all you gotta do
Close your eyes, start to revise
The books in the Old and the books in the New

Two letters to Timothy arrive on time
Then Titus and Philemon
A letter to the Hebrews and another from James
All delivered by a very tired Postman

Peter writes a couple and sticks them in the box
Then up pops John with a 1 2 3
Then a little bit of wisdom from a guy called Jude
And it’s all a Revelation
