Bible Alphabet Verses

Last week I shared how my mother taught me Bible verses for each letter of the alphabet when I was a child. I learned verses from the King James version. Today, I am sharing that list of verses from the New King James Version. You can develop a list of your own using other translations if you prefer.

As you teach, be sure to explain any difficult words. An ordinary English dictionary is all you need to do this. And try to apply the verses whenever you are in a situation where they might apply. For example, if you catch your child trying to cover up a wrongdoing, quote Numbers 32:23, "Be sure your sins will find you out." Tell him the about the person who said the words and the story that is the setting for the verse. In these ways you are reinforcing the learning experience, and he learns that the Bible applies to his everyday life. You are training up your child "in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it" (Proverbs 22:6).

Here is my family's list of Bible Alphabet verses:

  1. Thanks for this list, AnnaLee. I'll keep it handy for those times I teach Sunday School. And as a handy reference too.

  2. Matthew 17
    [15] Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.
    [16] And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
    [17] Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
    [18] And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.

    Revelation 17
    [15] And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
    [16] And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
