Every Person In The Bible

By Richard Vallance Janke
for David, my Christian Friend.     John 11:35: "Jesus wept"

I am every person in the Bible.
I am Adam and also I am Eve.
I am beguiled and also I deceive.
Iím Cainís fierce battles, all intertribal.

I am Isaac, your firstborn, on Your stone altar.
I am your Father, youíre my Son, grievous to kill.
I am the Psalmist, all alone with my psalter.
I am Goliath, whom David perhaps shall kill.

I was and am Moses, borne away on the Nile.
I am Egyptís Pharoah, thus pariah to slave.
I am Jobís valour, his righteousness or shame.
I am reduced to tears, Rock at Your opened grave.

I am Iscariot. Youíll remember my kiss.
I am not Jesus. Rest certain of this.
