If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.…
The learned Prince of Granada, heir to the' Spanish throne, imprisoned by order of the Crown lest he should aspire to the sovereignty, was kept in solitary confinement in the old prison at the Place of Skulls, Madrid. After thirty-three years in this living tomb death came to his release, and the following remarkable researches marked with an old nail on the rough walls of his cell, told how the brain sought employment during those weary years: — "In the Bible the word Lord is found 1,853 times; the word Jehovah 6,855 times, and the word reverend but once — in Psalm 111:9. The 8th verse of Psalm 117, is the middle verse of the Bible. Esther 8:9 is the longest verse, and John 11:35 the shortest. In Psalm 107, the 8th, 15th, 21st, and 31st verses are alike. Each verse of Psalm 136. ends alike. No words with more than six syllables are found in the Bible. Isaiah 37, and 2 Kings 19. are alike. The word girl occurs only in Joel 3:3. There are found in both Testaments 3,586,483 letters, 773,693 words, 31,373 verses, 1,179 chapters, and 66 books."
