THE MEANING OF THE HOLY BIBLE

THE MEANING OF THE HOLY BIBLE

The World Book Encyclopaedia:

The Bible is the most widely read book in history. More copies have been distributed of the Bible than of any other book. The Bible has also been translated more times, and into more languages, than any other book.

THE HOLY BIBLE REVEALS TO MANKIND

The mind of God, 

The state of man,

The way of salvation,

The destiny of sinners,

And the happiness of believers. 

Its doctrines are holy,

Its precepts are binding, 

Its histories are true,

And its decisions are immutable. 

Read it to be wise,

Believe it to be safe, 

And practice it to be holy. 

It contains light to direct you,

Strength to support you,

And comfort to cheer you.

It is the traveller’s map,

The pilgrim’s staff,

The pilot’s compass, 

The soldier’s sword,

And the Christian’s Charter.

It opens the door to Heaven, 

Reveals the pathway to Paradise,

And closes the gates of Hades.

Jehovah God is its grand subject, 

Our good is its design,

And the glory of God is its end.

It should fill our memory,

Rule our heart,

And guide our feet.

Read it slowly,

Read it frequently,

Read it prayerfully.

It is a mine of wealth, 

A paradise of glory,

And a river of pleasure.

It guides you to life,

Serves as you judge,

And is your teacher forever.

It involves the highest sacrifice,

Demands the deepest love,

And grants the greatest hope.

To own it is riches,

To study it is wisdom,

To trust it is salvation,

To love it is life,

And to obey it is divine.
