Bible Memorization : Week One

You are welcome to join me at any time!

This year, I would like to try memorizing Isaiah chapter 53. I thought I would 
break it up into two verses per week if the verses are short enough, or just one verse
 per week if the verse is extra long. After looking over the chapter, I think it will take
 two months (January and February) to complete.

Here are the first two verses: 

  Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 

    For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. 

Isaiah 53:1-2

Here are a couple other suggestions if you'd like to try memorizing something else instead:

Hebrews 13:5-6

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

  So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

1 Peter 4:7-8

 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

   And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

I'm not sure if I will be able to keep up with all the verses, but I want to try!

I'll be trying to memorize as well. I've used the chalkboard quite often before, (for memorization, etc.) and found it very helpful!
