Since I was a young boy...I always knew about Psalm 119 being fashioned after the Alephbet. After many years however, I have discovered that there are many more places in scripture where the known 22 letter alephbet were used, almost in a poetic structure....
You can only notice these if reading in Hebrew, not English, for the most part.
I plan to analyze a few suggestions in this thread over the next while.
I would like to analyze Lamentations, Proverbs and Psalms.
Today's entry will look solely at Lamentations and the wonderful patterns of the alephbet throughout.
LAMENTATIONS
Chapter 1: 22 verses, one for each letter in the alephbetic order from Aleph to Tav.
Chapter 2: 22 verses, one for each letter. There is a ,perhaps, strange variation in the order of the Ayin and Pey being reversed. This same interchange appears also in Chapters 3 and 4.
Chapter 3: 66 verses, three consecutive verses for each letter from Aleph to Tav
Chapter 4: 22 verses, one for each letter from Aleph to Tav.

Here is Lamentations 1 highlighted to see visually the pattern:

Now look at chapters 2, same except with the Pey =Ayin reversed:

Lamentations 3 follows the same alephbet pattern, each letter repeating 3 times, and then the Pey-Ayin 'reversed' again:

Today's entry is on Proverbs 31, "The Virtuous Woman'. Again, this is another section of scripture that uses each of the Hebrew Alephbet letters in order:

Here, the correct order is maintained with the Pey-Ayin correct. So the question arises as to why in lamentations are the letters sometimes in a slightly different order? Something to explore as we continue....
We will look at some interesting entries from the Psalms next!

The Psalms have many Alephbetic patterns. The most precise and familiar is Psalm 119, having 176 verses, consisting of 22 sections, each containing 8 consecutive verses that begin with the same Hebrew letter, for a total of 176 (= 8 x 22) verses.
The first eight begin with Aleph, the next eight with Bet, the next eight with Gimel, etc...etc... There are no variations from the 'standard' order.
Here is a sample:

Psalm 145: Is another Alephbetic chapter. It only has 21 verses in the KJV etc....
This follows the standard order from Aleph to Tav, with the exception that the Nun verse is missing in some manuscripts. This is why it has 21 rather than the expected 22 verses.
If we look at the DSS (Dead Sea Scrolls) however, we can see that the original scrolls had 22 letters. The Nun verse is missing in modern text but retained in the DSS as follows:
Nun: "God is faithful in his words, and gracious in all his deeds".
I find it strange however, that in all the verses except verse 1, YHWH is used, but here in the so-called missing verse it has Elohim in the DSS... Yet, modern versions like the RSV use YHWH. Hmmm...
