The biblical prophets claimed to have been commanded by God to write down His words.

  • “And the Lord said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with
    Israel.” (Exodus 34:7)
  • “Moreover the Lord said unto me, Take thee a great roll, and write in it with a man’s pen concerning Mahershalalhashbaz.” (Isaiah 8:1)
  • “Take thee again another roll, and write in it all the former words that were in the first roll, which Jehoiakim the king of Judah hath
    burned.” (Jeremiah 36:28)
