Bible meter is meant to further explain, cross-reference, elucidate the interpretation of Bible text. Pity this Meter is unknown to scholars. So here, we take a simple example of how Bible meter elucidates otherwise-snoring text, in 1Peter1:1-2.
Folks who got this letter at the time, memorized Scripture by means of syllable counts. So God gives them extra bang for the buck -- using a rhetorical style since Moses -- of turning the METER (syllable counts in groups of sevens or threes) into a CALENDAR. So it becomes a drama play about specific segments of time, with the words known to be 'lines' spoken by 'actors' telling you ABOUT that time.
Moses started this style in Psalm 90 (see my Psalm 90 playlist), with God's Decree re TIME in the first 84 syllables: a promise of TIME for those who took 'refuge' in God.
This, is Peter's jumping-off point for his letter; you know that, because he too uses 84 syllables. So the syllables act as a concordance, a pointer, cross-reference. Text refers to Psalm 90 content several times, which all scholars know. But what they don't know, is how the meter tells you MUCH MORE INFO -- as well as when Peter writes -- than you could discern, from the text alone.
Always need to know CONTEXT, with Scripture. Here, vital TIME CONTEXT is missing from theology, and hence this valuable method of interpreting Bible, goes unlearned. So to show you the difference in the meaning you get -- which is all doctrinal, as well as telling you WHAT TIME Peter writes (which scholars still dispute) -- to show you this difference, I dramatize the text by reading it, and showing how the METER gives you added meaning FROM THE SAME WORDS, which you'd otherwise not know.

To get the most out of this play on Paul, you need to read Paul's meter, replete with university and other websites explaining the relevant historical references: brainout.net/Ephesians1REPARSED.doc or htm (if you have Bibleworks fonts, which you can also download for free at bibleworks.com/fonts.html ).

Test what I say, as this is all original research. See the 'God Orchestrates Time' section on my Channel page, for the many playlists on this Meter technique. Word docs are in every video description, so you can VET the material yourself. If you can count syllables; if you can read history articles; if you can read Bible Greek with software help like BibleWorks, you can proof this material.
And as always, let me know if you find any mistakes, as I have no one to check me, except myself. If God is in what I say, He'll testify. If not, He'll tell you where I'm wrong. Else I'd have no courage to make videos at all!
