The biblical prophets claimed to have been commanded by God to write down His words.
- â€œAnd 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.â€ (Exodus 34:7)
- â€œMoreover the Lord said unto me, Take thee a great roll, and write in it with a man’s pen concerning Mahershalalhashbaz.â€ (Isaiah 8:1)
- â€œTake 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.â€ (Jeremiah 36:28)
