Every Person In The BibleBy 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.
