ABC Bible Verses for Memorization KJV

As I mentioned in my post about storytime, I read to the kids out of the Read and Learn Bible every non-church night before bed.

I decided that I wanted to teach them some Bible verses (and brush up on Scripture references myself), and what better way then to tie it in with our Letter of the Week!  So, each week, as we learn about a specific letter during our lesson time, we will be learning a verse that begins with that letter during devotions.

I had some very specific verses floating around in my brain, so when I finally sat down to write up a list, it was very easy to come up with most of the verses.  You might notice a theme going on with some of these verses:  soft answers, loving one another, obeying parents.  Yeah, I have those kids.

I tried to keep the verses relatively short without leaving out too much context.  And, for the letter Z, I settled for having the word within the verse rather than starting the verse.  Oh, on T, too.

A few of the letters I did get stuck on, so I'm thankful to the following sites for their inspiration help:
