Psalm 119 is the longest chapter in the Bible. The chapter is divided into 22 sections, one for each letter of the Hebrew alphabet, with 8 verses in each section, and every verse is about God's Word. This is a wonderful section of the Bible to listen to. Each section is less than one minute and the whole chapter takes 19 minutes. (Bible verses are from the NKJV, read by Ann Dunagan).

Note: In preparation for an upcoming women's book club and Bible study in my home, I recorded my own personal favorite quotes and selections from the first half of OWN YOUR LIFE, a Christian book by Sally Clarkson, which I highly recommend. 

This audio recording was created for my own personal book study (in preparation for teaching a group of women who are going through this book). I decided to upload this recording to help other leaders to also prepare themselves to lead a study through this book. The audio is almost completely (perhaps 98%) exact word-for-word quotes, all in order, read from the first half of the book (from the INTRO through the end of CHAPTER 6) with an exception of a couple brief moments where I summarized a theme of a particular chapter to help understand a given selection.

These selections are simply quotes, highlighted sections and Bible verses, all from OWN YOUR LIFE, that personally stood out to me. (by Ann Dunagan).
