List of Hebrew Bible Books by Length

July 30, 2012

in Luminary Uprise, Religion

Perhaps incredibly, a sortable list does not exist of books of the Hebrew Bible, so I have created one. You can sort by title, number of chapters, or number of verses.

Shalom Sarah,

Thanks for this posting this, very helpful!
Wanted to point out a few errors:

1. Leviticus is listed as having 27 verses and 859 chapters.
Should be 27 chapters and 859 verses.

2. Joel and Zechariah have the same number of verses and chapters.
In the King James Bible Joel has 3 chapter and 73 verses.

3. Joel and Proverbs have * by them but I can’t seem to be able to find the explanation of what the * indicates. I’m assuming that it indicates that the book differs in chapter and verse divisions in the Hebrew and English Bibles.
