A biographer of Abraham Lincoln says that Lincoln knew the Bible almost by heart. In the book, Mr. Lincoln by J.G. Randall, we read: “There was not a clergyman to be found so familiar with it as he. There is scarcely a speech or paper prepared by him from 1834 to 1865, but contains apt allusions and stirring illustrations from the sacred book.” In fact, it is said that when Lincoln saw a misquotation from the Bible, he would correct it and write down the chapter and verse where the exact words could be found.
““Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
