Did you know...

...that there are inspirational poems and poetry in the Bible?

Easton's Bible dictionary says, "Poetry has been well defined as 'the measured language of emotion.' Hebrew poetry deals almost exclusively with the great question of man's relation to God...In the Hebrew scriptures there are found three distinct kinds of poetry, 1) that of the Book of Job and the Song of Solomon, which is dramatic; 2) that of the Book of Psalms, which is lyrical; and 3) that of the Book of Ecclesiastes, which is didactic and sententious."
