How to Learn Psalm 34 v 1-4 - Bible Memorization with FREEBIES


I could never do it!

          Do what?

Memorize Psalm 34 verses 1 to 4!

          Yes you can one verse at a time.







Many people think they could never manage to memorize 4 verses of the Bible together.

But they might consider learning 1 verse.

Over the years you have probably memorized some verses from all over the Bible - all individual verses or perhaps two verses like Proverbs 3 v 4-5.

So why not learn a short passage of 4 verses just doing it 1 verse at a time.


So let's look at 3 things:
  • Memorising Tips
  • Some Freebies to help you.





Memorising Tips

If you read the blog post on 
10 Ways to Learn Scripture - Bible Memorization
you will know that I shared 10 ways to tackle this but some ways are more helpful than others to different people and to different verses or passages.
If you didn't read that blog post it might be good to go over to it now HERE
and then come back to see which of the 10 ways I would recommend for this one.



I am going to help you with this passage using
        Ways  1,  2,  3,  4,  7,  8,  9,  &  10  
because of the structure and Rhythm of the verses.

1.  Read the verse often, every day, multiple times in the day.
     Repeating it over and over.

2.  Write out the verse often, every day.
     Writing it out over and over and over.

3.  Feel the excitement of a verse that is an exaltation of praise to God.
     Think the praise as you say or write the words.

4.  Personal Testimony - Action from you and result from God.
     Think about the request from you and how God answers our prayers.

7.  Understand the meaning of the verse.
     Think of what it actually says and means and it will remain better in your mind.

8.  Make it easy to see the verse clearly &  regularly each day.

9.  Make or Use Bible Verse Graphics

10.  Sing It.


Each verse in this passage contains 2 parts - yet both make up just one sentence so there is help here of the second part relating to the first so that the verse makes sense.


In fact in the other blog post mentioned above you will have seen me take various verses from Psalm 34 as the examples for the different ways.




So let's look at each of these 4 verses on their own and then you can put them together.


Psalm 34 v 1

I would use any or all of  1, 2, 7, 8, & 9 

1.   Read it like it is in two sections

2.   Write it on two separate lines

7.   Understand that the second part of this verse is a natural result of the first part

8.   Stick copies of this verse on the mirror, fridge door, etc.

9.   Make or Use Bible Verse Graphics 
      (this graphic is available to download as a free printable in my Resource Library)









Here's a video I made just to show you one way and you can use this by replaying it as often as you like to learn it within a day or two depending on how often you practice it.












Psalm 34 v 2


I would use any or all of  1, 2, 7, 8, & 9 

1.   Read it & Concentrate on the two first words in each part and then get the "what each will do" straight in your head to go along with it.

2.   Write it on two separate lines

7.   Understand that the second part of this verse is a great result of the first part

8.   Stick copies of this verse on the mirror, fridge door, etc.

9.   Make or Use Bible Verse Graphics 
      (this graphic is available to download as a free printable in my Resource Library)










Psalm 34 v 3




I would use any or all of  1, 2, 7, 8, & 9

1.   Read it like it is in two sections but making a request

2.   Write it on two separate lines.

3.  Feel the excitement of this verse because it is an exaltation of praise to God.
     Think the praise as you say or write the words.

7.   Understand that the second part of this verse is reinforcing the first part.

8.   Stick copies of this verse on the mirror, fridge door, etc.

9.   Make or Use Bible Verse Graphics - because this is portrait shaped it will make a good phone screen saver 
      (this screen saver is available to download as a free printable in my Resource Library)










Psalm 34 v 4







I would use any or all of  1, 2, 7, 8, & 9

1.   Read it like it is in two sections - there is excitement here over what happened.

2.   Write it on two separate lines.

4.  Personal Testimony - Action from you and result from God.
     Think about this as a prayer from you and how God answers our prayers.

7.   Understand that the second part of this verse is God responding to the first part which was a prayer.

8.   Stick copies of this verse on the mirror, fridge door, etc.

9.   Make or Use Bible Verse Graphics - because this is portrait shaped it will make a good phone screen saver 
      (this screen saver is available to download as a free printable in my Resource Library)



Bible Verse Graphics

I post a Bible Verse Graphic every morning on my
so if you want to be encouraged by a verse each day or have a graphic you can Share to your timeline or Save in Facebook then click through to my Facebook Page and be sure to like and follow the page to see those graphics in your feed each day.




Did you notice something was missing?

For the 4 separate verses I said we would use
1,2,3,4,7,8,9,10

and as we went through the verses above we did not include no.10

because no. 10 is going to be the way to reinforce the whole passage for us

We are going to pull all 4 verses together in a song.





Rhythm

Often we see rhythm in verses of the Bible and especially so in the Psalms.

They were meant to be sung but we can use the fact of the rhythm of the words to help us learn this passage.

As I said above each verse contains 2 parts

v.1   I will bless .....
        his praise shall .....

v.2   My soul shall .....
        the humble shall .....

v.1   O magnify the Lord .....
        and let us exalt .....

v.1   I sought the Lord .....
        and delivered me .....


and if you say the words aloud you will notice the rhythm between them repeating throughout.

When we recite something rhythmically it really helps us to learn it.



PLUS

Let's not forget the best and easiest way for most people to learn scripture

We sing it!

Watch the video below of Fred and I singing this passage as a song we learnt as teenagers and have not really forgotten over all these years.

This song is fantastic for this passage as it does not leave out any words or add in any words but takes the exact verses straight from the Bible.


 

You can come back anytime and replay the video here to practise or you can find it on my YouTube channel  Scripture Memorization in Song at Sandra's Ark




We can also pull all 4 verses together by repeating them straight through as we colour a picture around them.


Here you will see an example of a colouring page I made for Psalm 34 v 1-4 and it is also available as a freebie on the Blog with the link at the end of this post.

1.  I Like the Pit Pit Patter of the Raindrops.


A song our grandkids love to sing in the car with us and if you sing it through at the speed I sing it in the video then it is just over the 20 secs. But if you want to sing it fast then sing it twice and it will be the more than enough time for that important handwash time.




PRINTABLE








Now watch the video below to learn the tune

2.  Wash Your Hands  (to Baby Shark).


Everyone loves Baby Shark so why not change the words slightly

Because it is so well-known you won't need a printable for this one or really even a video to help you learn it (but for the fun of it I just might do one later).


The Words:

Wash Your Hands    (instead of Baby Shark)

sing it twice

 or 

why not personalize it by getting the children sing each others names or your name

ie.  Wash your hands  mummy, mummy, mummy
      Wash your hands  daddy, daddy, daddy
      Wash your hands  nanny, nanny, nanny
      Wash your hands  grandpa, grandpa, grandpa







3.  Love One Another Like Sister and     Brother.


A song that is very easy to learn and very easy to sing and definitely lasts over the 20 secs. Fred timed me before we did the video and he said 25 secs.  But I think I actually sang it slower on the video than I did when he was timing me.



PRINTABLE

4.  I Can Do All Things .


This is a song that will help the kids to learn a Bible Verse at the same time so a double blessing here.

It's based on Philippians 4 v 13  and the reference is actually included in the song too.

Hopefully I will add a video for the song later.

This song was always very easy to learn because of the repetition.

10.  Whisper A Prayer.


This is a lovely gentle song encouraging the kids to pray often during the day.

Sing through the 2 sections once and you will have washed your hands for over the correct length of time required.



WORDS

WHISPER A PRAYER

Whisper a prayer in the morning
 Whisper a prayer at noon
Whisper a prayer in the evening
To keep your heart in tune.


God answers prayer in the morning
God answers prayer at noon
God answers prayer in the evening
So keep your heart in tune.

TIP.  The Lords Prayer.    


Parents what an timely opportunity this is to teach your children the Lords Prayer.

Of course before you do this you might like to use the time you are washing your hands to say the Lords Prayer because my son did tell me that it is the right length for our 20 sec hand washing regime.

Our oldest son is a Pastor and Theology lecturer in a Bible College and he assures me he instructed his students to use this as a good opportunity to pray while they were all still at the college during the start of virus lockdown, now they have gone home and the teaching is all online.

Because it is so well-known you won't need a printable for this one or really even a video to help you learn it (but for the fun of it I just might do a nice Graphic for you  later).

The 10 Commandments for Parents with FREE PRINTABLE - Coffee & Conversation





Many years ago I found these words but never knew exactly where they came from.


They were entitled:


The Ten Commandments for Parents.





"The 10 Commandments for Parents"



1.     Your sons and your daughters are not your's alone;
         bring them up to know ME before they are grown.


2.     Provide for their needs and know, as you do,
         that I will provide for each one of you.


3.     Live by MY WORD, in love and in fear,
         so you are living a message that children can hear.


4.     I delighted in sharing creation with you;
         help your children appreciate loveliness too.


5.     Respect them, for each is unique by design,
         welcome their specialness, help them to shine.


6.     Cultivate character, loyalty, truth -
          lessons in living, to carve in their youth.


7.     Take time to listen, to laugh and to play,
          when your children have grown the memories will stay.


8.     Teach them to talk to me often in prayer;
          I want them to trust that I'll always be there.


9.     I am there for you too.  Remember to ask,
          and I will equip you for this holy task.


10.   These are MY loved ones.  Thus it shall be:
          as you do unto them, you do it to ME.     




I printed them out on cards and gave them to the parents of the children who came to our "Good News" Club one year over 20 years ago and then recently when I was sorting out some old materials for Kids Work I found one of them and of course the words are as good now as they were then.


Now I have made a new copy of these and I hope you like it.
