I’m going to answer a few simple questions this morning about my personal Bible and I hope you’ll do the same. I have a feeling we’ll learn a lot about one another just by comparing Bibles. 🙂
What translation do you study from the most?
My aunt bought me a NIV Study Bible after I was saved, so it’s my go-to translation. I’ve recently began studying multiple translations side by side. My four favorites to parallel are the NKJV, Holman, NIV, and Amplified.
What is your all time favorite Bible verse?
Proverbs 4:14, 15, 27 “Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evildoers. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way…Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.”
Close your Bible and look at the pages. You’re likely to see a dirty ring somewhere along the edge of the paper. What book does the dirt ring circle? FYI, that’s your most read book in that Bible. 😉
I have a dirt ring around Matthew since we’ve studied it for so long in church and another ring around the Psalms and Proverbs.
The dirt ring is pretty telling, but just in case you’ve read more on your Kindle lately, what are your favorite books of the Bible?
Proverbs tops the list for me, but I also really love to study Jeremiah, Romans, and James.
Pen, Pencil, or Highlighter? Do you mark up your Bible? If so, what do you use, and what methods do you have for marking in your Bible?
I’m a simple gal. I only use a pink highlighter to mark my favorite verses. I don’t take any notes in my Bible, but I do keep a study journal.
