Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy,
and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

Within the span of 1 year, you can achieve "practical memorization" of the Bible, which I define as:
A readiness to spot-read rapidly, without error, as well as to know by experience the contents of each chapter.


My DREAM is that there will begin to be places where the Bible will be read aloud and in unison 24 hours a day,
where people can gather in to listen and read along and participate.
Revelation is the starting point (Blessed is he that readeth [aloud]!): it takes 40 minutes to recite at ~400 BPM.

It is feasible to recite the whole KJV Bible in about 41 hours, at 420 BPM (7 syllables per second)…
 17,250 [total beats*hr/min] / 420 BPM = 41 hr
or, 48 hours at 360 BPM (6 per second, easier to count)… 17,250 / 360 BPM = 48 hr
Reciting with a partner is the way to eliminate pauses or gaps.

If folks were to meet and recite Revelation, they could also pair off, and each pair choose a 1/6 section (100 pages).
One in the pair will master and lead in the first 50 pages (1/12), and the partner will master and lead in the second 50 pages.


Is the Lord calling on you too, to recite the sounds of his Law publicly?

Please, go read with and support your neighbors, and stock & share copies of the Bible in your community:

Actual Memorization Work

I recommend starting from the very last phrase of the target verse and working backwards,
such that each time you add new material, it flows ahead into previously-memorized material.
Start from the end of not only the verse, but also of the chapter, of the book, and even of the whole Bible!
(This also prevents one from inadvertently charging ahead, and taking on too much new material at a time.)

Start with Rev 22, dear friend, and commit the promises of the End to heart.

As for the idea of memorizing 1/52 of the Bible in 1 week, no human can really do that, as that's not enough
time for the brain to solidify all of it, except for the end part (which you'll review during the entirety of the week).
So in practical terms: Cover 1/52 for the week, but hone in on ~1/6 of that, to really aim at retaining.

The "First & Last" Chapters Reading

Here's one last idea I offer as a fail-safe, when you're not sure what to read, whether alone or in a group:
7 days' reading of 7 books (14 chapters each day).
It may be for a meditation on the content which happens between each pair of book-ends,
and it should surely help you remember the chapter-counts of each book.
