rhymed Bibles


Rhyme is found in the Hebrew text of the poetic books of the Old Testament only sporadically and accidentally; but portions of the Scriptures have been done into rhyme in English, French, and Italian. Among English rhymed versions, mostly of the Psalms, are those of Thomas Brampton (1414), Sir Philip Sydney (1580), and Lord Bacon (1600).
