Answer:  27.


The KJV has 783,137 words that include precepts, principles, stories of life experiences. 


Just like the trials of life, some books in the Bible are very long, (Psalms) some very short (Jude).


But no matter what beautiful Bible book you read, it comes to an end. 

Just like your trials.

Exodus 2 explains that trials end at the end of the chapter.

But first, Exodus 2 has a whole lot of stuff happening.  Don’t skip a verse – you will miss something important.  A few highlights, Moses the deliverer of the children of Israel was born, then, raised by Pharaoh’s daughter, grew up, got mad because of the way a Hebrew was being treated and killed a man, then fled to Midian, got married, had children.  Normal every day-in-day out happened to Moses – etc, etc, etc.

But then, God interrupted the “average” life of Moses, and the ongoing tyranny the children of Israel were experiencing. A word came and that word was, “God heard their groaning and He remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob.” (Exodus 2:24)

Next chapter, Exodus 3, there’s a word that appears and re-appears.  In both the NIV and the King James Version it’s the same word. 

That word is “Now.”

See verse 9

Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me.”

Insert your name for “the children of Israel”  in the sentence below

“Now therefore, behold the cry of (insert your name) is come unto me (God).” 

That’s the word God is saying to you.

Yahweh has heard your cry.

I don’t know why you are crying.  That is between you and God.  The children of Israel wanted to be freed from slavery.  And God’s promise to them was this-

“And I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty.22 But every woman shall borrow of her neighbor, and of her that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your daughters; and ye shall spoil the Egyptians.”  (Exodus 3:21-22)

God delivered them out of bondage and into prosperity.  God delivered them out of oppression and into freedom.  God delivered them out of torment and into peace.  God delivered them out of tyranny and into justice.  Out of fear, into faith.  Out of disappointment, into hope. Out of death into life.  Out of darkness, into light. Out of closed doors, into opened doors.  Out of a long time of suffering then finally to deliverance.

This is for you, now comes deliverance. This is the end of your trial. Psalms 126:3.

And this is the end of this article.
