Scripture Memory

The Scripture I know by heart is my most valuable mental treasure.

From F.R.H.’s Bible some of the chapters she learnt by heart are now given besides the whole of the Psalms, the four Gospels, and many typical and historical chapters and the minor prophets.  In 1846 she learned Isaiah xii., liii., lv.  In 1854 the Epistle to the Romans.  In 1856 first chapter of Genesis, learned in Hebrew; also Isaiah i.  In 1957 F.R.H. learned:

Epistle to the Hebrews                                Oct. 24.
Epistle of James                                         Nov.  9.
1st Epistle of Peter                                      Nov. 23.
2nd Epistle of Peter                                     Dec.  5.
1st Epistle of John                                       Dec. 22.
2nd Epistle of John                                      Dec. 24.
3rd Epistle of John                                       Dec. 26.
Romans, relearned                                      Dec.
Jude                                                           Dec. 30.
Galatians                                                    Feb.  6, 1858.

Hence ten epistles learnt in five months!
