Mnemonic for Memorizing Jacob's 12 Sons (from the OT)

After unsuccessfully searching online for a mnemonic to help memorize Jacob's 12 Sons (in order) for my impending OT final exam, I decided to come up with my own. And it totally works! Within 3 tries, I had all 12 down.

Here it is:
Rowdy Sailors Love Jewish Dough Nuts.
Going All In Zero Joy Brings.

  1. Rowdy = Reuben
  2. Sailors = Simeon
  3. Love = Levi
  4. Jewish = Judah
  5. Dough = Dan
  6. Nuts = Naphtali
  7. Going = Gad
  8. All = Asher
  9. In = Issachar
  10. Zero = Zebulun
  11. Joy = Joseph
  12. Brings = Benjamin

(I know the last part it a little Yoda-esque, but that's what you get from a Star Wars geek.)

Now you all can ace your OT exams, Sunday school tests, or youth group Bible quizzes.
