Niv version of the bible


1:1-3 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.


Exodus, meaning “departure” in Greek, follows the Israelites’ flight from Egypt. The book is one of the five books of Moses (the Pentateuch), and it focuses on how God rescues his people from slavery and gives them a new home. It is the second book in the Old Testament.

The first part of Exodus tells how God rescues Israel’s slaves from Pharaoh through signs and wonders—including plagues and the burning bush—and finally through the death of Egypt’s firstborn sons (see chapters 1-14). Then, at Mount Sinai, God gives Moses instructions on worshiping him; he also commands Moses to build a portable temple called the Tabernacle (see chapters 15-40). In chapters 25-31, God provides instructions for building this temple. This tabernacle will be a place where God can dwell with his people as they journey toward their promised land.


Leviticus is the third book of the Old Testament and the third book of the Torah. It is a book of rules and laws, focusing on holiness and sacrifices.


Numbers (from Greek: Αριθμοί, Arithmoi; Hebrew: בְּמִדְבַּר‎, Bəmiḏbar) is the fourth book of the Torah and the fourth book of the Hebrew Bible. The book has a long and complex history; its final form is possibly due to a Priestly redaction (i.e., editing) of a Yahwistic source made some time in the early Persian period. The name of the book comes from the two censuses taken of the Israelites.

The narrative begins with God’s order to Moses for him to number those able to bear arms among the Israelites (every male twenty years and older), and for you to appoint these over their brothers as leaders–ruling over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens–and have them serve as judges for their brothers.


You can find Deuteronomy, the fifth book in the Bible, in between Leviticus and Joshua. It is part of the Pentateuch, which is made up of the first five books of the Old Testament. The Book of Deuteronomy covers a variety of topics including law, history and stories.

Deuteronomy means “second law” or “repetition of laws.” It contains a retelling and summarization of many laws that were given in Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers. In addition to being a book about the law, Deuteronomy also shares about Moses’ life as he spends time with God on Mount Sinai for 40 days getting ready to die and then tells his last story before he dies at 120 years old after 40 years wandering in the desert with Israel.

The Book of Judges is a key book in the Old Testament. It’s a critical part of your daily study routine.

As with any good piece of literature, you want to understand it fully. You want to be able to get the most out of it.

In order to do that, there are some important aspects that you need to focus on and remember as you read or listen to this book:

  • Jephthah
  • Samson
  • Ruth
  • Shammah
  • Eglon
  • Deborah
  • Jael

  • Gideon
  • Achsah

Ruth was a Moabite woman who married an Israelite man and then became a widow. Despite that, she chose to stay with her mother-in-law Naomi after the death of her husband, rather than return to her own people. She is the subject of the Book of Ruth, which tells of her commitment to the God of Israel and to Naomi. She is also featured in Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus (Matthew 1:5).

The story opens with Elimelech taking his wife Naomi and sons Mahlon and Chilion away from Bethlehem during a famine to settle in Moab. Elimelech dies, leaving Naomi and the two boys as residents in Moab. The boys marry Moabite women Ruth and Orpah, but both husbands die within ten years. In utter poverty, Naomi decides to return home with her daughters-in-law. After initial hesitation, they agree—but only Orpah returns home while Ruth refuses despite Naomi’s pleading: “Look, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and her gods; return after your sister-in-law” (Ruth 1:15).

With great love for this woman who had taken them into marriage when they were foreigners–their marriages symbolized God’s unconditional love for His people–Ruth decides she will go wherever Naomi goes and cleaves to her mother-in-law’s God as well: “Your people shall be my people, And your God my God” (1:16).

2 Chronicles

The books of 1 and 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon(Song of Songs) all come after this section.


Ezra is the writer of the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, 1 and 2 Chronicles and Ezra. Ezra was a scribe and a priest. He was also the leader of a group who returned from Babylon to Israel after the exile.

The book of Ezra is about the return of exiles from Babylon and rebuilding of the temple. The book is a continuation of 2 Chronicles.

Ezra was a contemporary with Nehemiah.


Nehemiah was cupbearer to the king of Persia, Artaxerxes I (ca. 465–423 BC). Nehemiah’s father was Hacaliah (1:1).

The Book of Nehemiah recounts how Nehemiah, at the court of the king in Susa, is informed that Jerusalem is without walls and resolves to restore them. The king appoints him as governor of Judah and he travels to Jerusalem. There he rebuilds the walls, despite the opposition of Israel’s enemies, and reforms the community in conformity with the law of Moses. After 12 years in Jerusalem, he returns to Susa but subsequently revisits Jerusalem. He finds that the Israelites have been backsliding and taking non-Jewish wives, and he stays in Jerusalem to enforce the Law. In Artaxerxes’ twentieth year (444/3 BC), Nehemiah returns from Babylon a second time for a visit; he stays for two months before returning to Persia on business of state, leaving behind his brother Hanani along with other men “knowledgeable about Jerusalem” (13:6 RSV) as governors among his people when he leaves.


‘Even though Esther was a Jewish exile, King Xerxes chose her as his queen. She did not reveal to him that she was Jewish; Mordecai told her not to because he knew the king would be unhappy with her if he found out.

Mordecai had helped the king’s palace guards by exposing a plot against the king. Haman, who was in charge of taking care of Xerxes’ horse, had planned to kill Mordecai and all other Jews because he hated them. When the plot failed and Mordecai received credit for saving the king’s life, Haman became even more angry at what happened.

Haman persuaded King Xerxes to show how much he appreciated that Mordecai prevented an attack on him. The king ordered Haman to dress Mordecai in royal clothes and lead him throughout the city on King Xerxes’ horse while someone announced: “This is what is done for anyone whom the king wishes to honor.” But Haman still wanted revenge against Mordecai, so he decided to get rid of all Jews instead of just one person.’



  • Job
  • Psalms
  • Proverbs


The Book of Psalms, which is generally believed to be the most widely read and the most highly treasured of all the books in the Old Testament, is a collection of poems, hymns, and prayers that express the religious feelings of Jews throughout the various periods of their national history.

Psalms (“songs sung to a harp”) is a book which contains 150 psalms or sacred songs. This book has been used since ancient times for public worship and private devotion. Its content is unique because we hear life expressed in all its dimensions: praise and sorrow; faith and fear; pain and joy; light and darkness; success and failure; victory and defeat. We see people at every stage of life expressing themselves as they seek to find answers to life’s perplexing problems. The psalms are very personal prayers revealing how it feels to live with a sense of faithfulness to God in our daily lives.


The book of Proverbs is not just a collection of wise sayings. It’s the journey of a father giving his son practical advice on how to live. The proverbs are directed toward a young man, but they’re meant for everyone. They cover an amazingly wide range of topics, from proper respect for parents and rulers to proper treatment of enemies and the poor.

These proverbs are direct about right and wrong living. There’s no uncertainty about whether things like adultery or laziness or lying are good or bad—they’re bad, plain and simple. These verses don’t offer vague moral principles; instead, they cut straight to the heart of what is right with God’s world and what is wrong with it—and what we can do about it.

The book of Proverbs gives us a biblical view on life rather than today’s common view that happiness consists largely in “doing your own thing” without regard for others’ needs or rights—or even for God! The writer offers another way: godly wisdom that results in true joy—the kind that comes from knowing you have made the most out of your life by doing it God’s way!


  • The writer is King Solomon
  • Themes are:
  • God is sovereign, the world is under His control
  • The world is not fair and we cannot change this
  • The world is temporary
  • Everything in life has its own time to come and go. This includes success, happiness, pleasure, sadness, etc. You can’t hold on to anything forever. Everything has its season. In this way, everything in our lives happens according to God’s plan and timetable.

In a professional tone:The world is not to be feared

Song of Solomon(Song of Songs)

The Song of Solomon or Song of Songs is one of the most beautiful books in the Bible. It is a song, not a book; a song of love and longing, romance and intimacy. It is a song of praise and beauty. Its poetic artistry is unsurpassed by any other biblical book.
