Poetry From The Bible

Poetry from the bible: My favorite portion is the biblical poetry. I adore how the Bible is so grounded in reality and relates to global and everyday human circumstances. However, it is also a holy and divine book that was eventually penned by God. It has many facets, is deep and profound, and is just fantastic.

poetry in the bible psalms

When I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. Psalm 56:3

He is the one who brings out their prisoners with shouts of jubilation. Psalm 68:18

You are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. Psalm 32:7

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Poetry from the bible

Poetry from the book of Ruth

  • Poem from the book of Ruth.
  • A woman named Ruth. She was a widow, and her mother-in-law was named Naomi. Naomi said to her, “Go back to your mother’s house and to your own people.” But Ruth said: “Don’t urge me to leave you or turn back from following you! Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you stay, I will stay; your people is my people and your God is my God.”

“Here I lie in the dust, where the wicked lie. The dust will eat us up like worms; but the LORD will protect us.”

The book of Ruth is full of poetry and song. One particular passage contains a lamentation by Naomi, who has just learned that her husband and sons have died in Moab:

“Here I lie in the dust, where the wicked lie. The dust will eat us up like worms; but the LORD will protect us.” (Ruth 1:20)

“The years of our life are seventy years, or even eighty.”

“The years of our life are seventy years, or even eighty.”

This is a great quote to live by and remember. It’s in the bible, so it’s got to be true! It’s also worth remembering that nobody ever lives past 100 years old, so you should make the most of the time you’ve got!

“Then Job answered and said, Lo, I am vile; what shall I answer thee?”

Job’s response to God is one of the most famous passages in the Bible. Job, who had just been told by God that all his suffering was because of sin and evil in his life, responds with “Lo, I am vile; what shall I answer thee?”

Job replies to God’s question with a question: what should he say? He then states that he is unworthy to even speak to God.

Paul’s letter to Philemon

In this letter, Paul tells Philemon that he is sending Onesimus back to him. Onesimus was a slave who had run away from his owner and whom Paul had converted on the road. Philemon has accepted Onesimus as a brother in Christ, and now Paul asks him to forgive Onesimus for any wrongdoings against him in their past relationship as master and slave. Paul also reminds us to pray for one another, because prayer is a powerful thing!

This is a great poem, might want to share it here.

The poet has really captured the mood of the times:

  • He opened with a metaphor comparing himself and his listeners to “two ships in the dark,” which could be taken as foreshadowing for what’s about to come (i.e., we all have our own hidden secrets).
  • He also uses symbolism later when he says that there are people in this world who don’t care about you or your problems because “they see evil through their eyes.” It’s obvious that these people are corrupt officials; however, by calling them out as being blind and ignorant, it makes us wonder if maybe they really do know better but choose not to act on their knowledge because they’re afraid of what might happen if they did speak up.

I admire how much effort went into this piece! A lot of thought went into choosing each word carefully so as not only convey meaning but also sound good together while still sounding like poetry instead prose (which often means using shorter sentences instead longer ones). I think this shows how talented our writer is since many other poets would try their best just make sense without worrying about whether their words sounded nice together or not!
