I’ve been following The Overview Bible Project for a while now and he has some amazing posts. This one really caught my attention so I thought I would share it with you all. I hope you enjoy it…

All the songs in the Bible [infographic]
The Bible isn’t a songbook, but did you know there are at least 185 songs in the Bible? Battles, coronations, funerals, cities being sacked, and seas splitting up—you can find songs in the Bible for all kinds of occasions.
Granted, 150 of these songs are in the book of Psalms, which actually is a songbook. But you can find 35ish more songs, chants, dirges, and hymns scattered across the Old and New Testaments. (I say 37ish because some of those songs are very similar to Psalms, and other pieces of poetry may or may not have been sung.)
I’ve pulled those non-Psalms together in one place for your reference.
Your worship leader will probably give you a high five if you share this with them. =)
We’ll kick things off with a few stats about the songs in the Bible, then examine each of the non-psalms one by one. And just in case you’re curious, you’re welcome to check out the piece I wrote on the different kinds of Psalms.
