Fifty Texts To Memorize

I then saw my sin in doubting the power of God, and that for so doing I had been struck dumb, but that my tongue should be loosed in less than twenty-four hours. A card was held up before me, on which were written in letters of gold the chapter and verse of fifty texts of scripture. LSMS 138.1

After I came out of vision, I beckoned for the slate, and wrote upon it that I was dumb, also what I had seen, and that I wished the large Bible. I took the Bible, and readily turned to all the texts that I had seen upon the card, which were as follows: LSMS 138.2

Luke 1:202 Corinthians 4:6-9, 17, 18
John 16:151 Peter 1:5-7
Acts 2:4, 429-311 Thessalonians 3:8
Matthew 7:6-12, 1524:24Mark 15:17, 18

Hebrews 10:35-39; 4:10-12Mark 1:23-25

Galatians 1:6-9Revelation 21:214:122:1-5
Luke 12:3-710, 11

I was unable to speak all day. Early the next morning my soul was filled with joy, and my tongue was loosened to shout the high praises of God. After that I dared not doubt, or for a moment resist the power of God, whatever others might think of me. LSMS 138.3
