 “Now these are the commandments, the statute, and the judgments..” (Deut. 6:1)
Book of Bible

 The Bible is a beautiful palace, built up out of sixty-six blocks of marble—its separate books.

 In the first chapter of Genesis we enter the vestibule, which is filled with the mighty acts of creation.

The vestibule gives access to the law courts, the five books of Moses.

Passing through these we come to the picture gallery of the historical books.

Here we find hung upon the walls scenes of battlefields, representations of heroic deeds, and portraits of eminent men belonging to the early days of the world’s history.

Beyond the picture gallery we find the philosopher’s chamber, the Book of Job.

Passing on we enter the music room the Book of Psalms, where we listen to the grandest strains that ever fell on human ears.

Then we come to the business office, the Book of Proverbs, where right in the center of the room stands facing us the motto:
Righteousness exalteth a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people.”

From the business office we pass into the chapel Ecclesiastes, or the preacher in his pulpit,  and thence into the conservatory, the Song of Solomon, with the rose of Sharon,
 
 
 
 
 

 the Lily of the Valley and all manner of fine perfumes fruits, and flowers.

 Finally we reach the observatory, the prophets
 with their telescopes fixed on near and distant stars, and all directed toward the Bright and Morning Star that was soon to arise.

Crossing the court we come to the audience chamber of the King, the Gospels, where we find four lifelike portraits of the King.

Next we enter the workroom of the Holy Spirit, the Acts of the Apostles, and beyond that the correspondence room, the Epistles, where we see Paul and Peter and James and Jude busy at their desks.

Before leaving we stand for a moment in the outside gallery, the Revelation, where we look upon some striking pictures of the judgment to come and  the glories to be revealed, concluding with an awe-inspiring picture of the throne room of the King.
