Some things can be /in the Bible/ & yet not be Biblical, i.e. they do not fit the “tenor” of Scripture. “Pray tell, of what do you speak?” Allow three, for now: 1.)

We spend our days

In a mice-like maze,

Do not be too tied into time but rather become more aware of what lies beyond time.

Since then, I’ve believed, the more, in not only knowing Scripture but as God helps us, know the reference. Are you memorizing Scripture? With reference? 1/2/18
