A Brief MEMORIAL OF THE BIBLE: OR, A SUMMARY OF The Chief Matters contained in every Chapter of the Old and New Testament.

Done into Metre for the Help of Memory, BY J. C. M. A.

LONDON, Printed by J. Astwood for Thomas Parkhurst, at the Bible and Three Crowns at the lower end of Cheapside, near Mercers-Chappel. 1688.


THe Use and End of this Me­trical Epitome, being only to help thy Memory in retaining and calling to Mind the mat­ters contained in the several Chapters of the Old and New Testament, ought in all Justice to be a sufficient Apo­logy for the Faults of its Poetry: For it is impossible, within the compass of one single Verse or Line, to express with equal perspi­cuity or smoothness the Contents of Chapters, so unequal both in length and variety.

In the Historical Part, I am bold to hope that there is not much Pretermitted; but the Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, [Page] and many Chapters in the Prophets, consist­ing of various and unconnected Sentences, are no way reducible to any one certain Head; and therefore I held my self con­tented to Characterize them by some remar­kable Sentence in them, and have added in the Margin the Numerals of the Verses where such Sentences are to be found.

Upon the whole, if it may pass for an Essay, and excite others to do it better; and in the mean time be subservient to Pie­ty, in promoting the Knowledge and Pra­ctice of the Holy Scriptures, too much neg­lected and forgotten in this Sinful Age, I shall have my End.
