Book of Ezra Length

Living in the Bible Belt, sometimes the only association people have with my name is the book in the Bible. Which is fine. I mean who would honestly recognize…

  • Ezra Klein
  • Ezra Koenig
  • Ezra Miller
  • Ezra Cornell
  • Ezra Pound
  • Ezra Taft Benson

before the book?

Recently I did get a rather weird question.

Ezra is the shortest book, right?

Uh. What? Apparently someone counted the words in each KJV book and placed Ezra at 30th out of 66 with an unimpressive 7K words. (10 chapters, 280 verses)

3 John has 1 chapter, 14 verses, and 294 words. It has fewer words than my rounding 7,440 to 7K above.
