The year 2020 is here. There's 2020 vision. There is a news show called 2020. So, I wondered what verses in the Bible had the address of 20:20. In other words, how many verses in the Bible have a chapter 20 and a verse 20? After a quick search, I discovered there were 17. Now, there's nothing special about those verses, but since I did the research, I thought I would list out all the verses in the Bible that have an address of 20:20. It was nothing more than an endeavor to satisfy a curiosity.

Of course, many of the books of the Bible don't have 20 chapters, and some that do have 20 chapters don't have more than 20 verses. Nevertheless, the following is the list of the books of the Bible that didn't have chapter 20 and verse 20.

Conclusion

Nothing spectacular comes out of the pattern of chapter 20 and verse 20. After all, these are man-made additions to the text to aid us in locating the Scriptures. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoyed it.
