Memory Verse Guide

There is no more effective way to transform and renew your mind (Romans 12:1–2) than by memorizing and meditating on Scripture. The discipline and repetition necessary to memorize a text will plant it deep within your consciousness. Memorization places Scripture at your fingertips, always at your disposal for use on unexpected occasions. The passages you have memorized will also assist you in times of temptation (Ephesians 6:17).

Your word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against You.” (Psalm 119:11)

How to Use This Guide

The purpose of this memory verse guide is to give you direction and encouragement in the process of committing crucial biblical verses to memory. The guide provides you with the best memory verses on a variety of biblical topics.

Three Levels

The guide offers three levels of topically arranged memory verses. Each level contains 52 passages, so that you can learn a level in one year at the rate of one passage per week.

  • Level 1 provides foundational verses on 10 major areas of the Christian walk: salvation, assurance of salvation, prayer, Bible study, God’s will, evangelism, spiritual gifts, spiritual warfare, and stewardship.
  • Level 2 centers around the themes of loving God, oneself, and others. Verses cover these relationships: husband and wife, parent and child, employee and employer, Christian and Christian, Christian and the world, and Christian and creation.
  • Level 3 is structured around 10 areas of Christian doctrine: the Bible, God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, angels, man, sin, salvation, the church, and future things.


  • This is a systematic arrangement, and it is best to memorize the verses in the order in which they appear in this guide.
  • Consider committing yourself to mastering level 1 first. These are the core verses you should review and retain, even if you later learn and forget other verses.
  • Set specific and realistic goals. At the rate of one passage per week, it will take you a year. But some may be up for a faster pace (e.g., six months, at a pace of two passages per week) while others want to take it more slowly (e.g., two years, at a pace of one passage every two weeks).
  • Review is essential to retention, and it plays an increasingly important role with every new verse you learn. Be sure to review what you have memorized so that it will not gradually slip away from you. The more you have learned, the more important a methodical program of review will become.
  • Putting the passages on index cards (one per card) can be helpful. You can take these cards with you wherever you go. Use them during “dead times” of the day (while waiting for an appointment, waiting in line, waiting on hold, sitting in traffic).
  • Since the key to memorization is repetition, expose yourself to your new verses briefly but often.

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things; and the God of peace shall be with you. (Philippians 4:8–9)

If then you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.
