I’m so in love with Scripture Typer. Even with a few technological hiccups, it’s been a wonderful, just wonderful tool to memorize individual Bible verses. But what do we do when we want to memorize longer passages? I have a tip for you.
Memorizing the Big Stuff
The easiest way to memorize long passages using Scripture Typer is to create a list of the individual verses in that passage.
For example, if you want to memorize Revelation 21: 1 – 8, create a collection called Revelation 21: 1-8 and add the complete passage in one swoop.
Then … add each verse of the passage separately.
Your collection will now look like this:
- Revelation 21:1-8
- Revelation 21:1
- Revelation 21:2
- Revelation 21:3
- Revelation 21:4
- Revelation 21:5
- Revelation 21:6
- Revelation 21:7
- Revelation 21:8
For a passage of eight verses you will have nine entries. One for the complete passage and eight for the individual verses.
By having each verse separated from the herd, you will only need to memorize one verse at a time to experience progress. And we all like to experience progress.

REALITY CHECK: Hiding the Word in our heart is not the same as applying the Word to the realities of life, but it sure helps the process.
