A RECIPE FROM THE GOOD BOOK Author unkown, submitted by Gordon Tatler

I wonder how many readers will know what the following ingredients are without having to check up on the biblical references. If you do need to check them it may be advisable to look at more than one translation as not all of them translate the same.

The ingredients.

1. ½lb Judges V verse 25

2. ½lb Jeremiah VI verse 20

3. 1 tablespoon I Samuel XIV verse 25

4. 3 of Jeremiah XVII verse 11

5. ½lb Samuel XXX verse 12

6. ½lb Nahum III verse 12 (chopped)

7. 2oz Numbers XVII verse 8 blanched and chopped

8. 1lb I Kings IV verse 22

9. Season with 2 Chronicles IX verse 9

10. A pinch of Leviticus II verse 13

11. A teaspoonful of Amos IV verse 5

12. 3 tablespoons of Judges IV verse 19

(Note. Leaven probably means baking powder)


Beat 1, 2 and 3 to a cream. Add 4 one at a time still beating. Then add 5, 6 and 7 and beat again. Add 8, 9, 10 and 11 having previously mixed them. Then add 12. Bake in a low oven for 1½ hours.
