Daniel Likely a prince, born into the tribe of Judah. A faithful prophet who was inspired to write a Bible Book in his name. He was possibly in his teens when he and other royal family members and nobles were taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar and moved to Babylon.
Ruth A faithful Moabite widow who supported her aged mother-in-law, Naomi. Her loyal love for Naomi and her determination to worship Jehovah gave her the strength to leave her homeland and move to Bethlehem.

Abel The second son of Adam and Eve and the first man of faith listed in the Bible. He proved that he wanted God’s favor by offering an acceptable sacrifice. Although the Bible does not record anything he said, his example and faith set a pattern for us.
Peter A hardworking fisherman who became one of Jesus’ disciples. Jesus chose him as one of his 12 apostles, or sent-forth ones. The 4 Gospels list more of his statements than any other apostle. Jehovah used him to preach and to strengthen his brothers.

Solomon The 2nd son of David and Bath-sheba. He ruled Israel for 40 years. He built a great house for Jehovah’s worship. Jehovah used him to write Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon. Bad association with foreign wives led him away from Jehovah.
Joseph The 1st son of Jacob and Rachel. His jealous brothers sold him into slavery in Egypt where he spent 13 years as a slave. Instead of taking revenge, he forgave his repentant half brothers. He remained chaste, hardworking, and trustworthy.
Isaiah A faithful prophet, who made the worship of God a family activity. He set a good example for them by the way he carried out his ministry. His wife was called “the prophetess.” Isaiah served God for at least 46 years. His name means “Salvation of Jehovah.”
Job A man “blameless and upright” in God’s eyes. Though his wife and others pressured him, he never turned away from serving God. His perseverance and happy outcome give us the courage to endure our trials loyally.
Samuel His parents “lent him to Jehovah” and encouraged him to make God’s service his career from a young age. Though he saw corrupt priests take advantage of others, he remained loyal, honest, and brave.
David Son of Jesse, and the second King of Israel. A skilled poet and musician, he wrote more than 73 of the psalms. He humbly sought Jehovah’s direction in his life. Jehovah called he “a man agreeable to my heart.”
