What Is The Longest Verse In The Bible?

The longest verse in the Bible is Esther 8:9. At 90 words long, it is also one sentence. Although it may seem wordy, this verse denotes with great detail a vital and unprecedented decree by King Ahasuerus that helped preserve the Israelites from genocide in the midst of the Persian Empire. Through this incredible story of Esther and Mordecai, God's magnificent provision is seen for His people.


So the king’s scribes were called at that time, in the third month, which is the month of Sivan, on the twenty-third day; and it was written, according to all that Mordecai commanded, to the Jews, the satraps, the governors, and the princes of the provinces from India to Ethiopia, one hundred and twenty-seven provinces in all, to every province in its own script, to every people in their own language, and to the Jews in their own script and language.

Praise God for His protection!
