Hello Dave,

At the start I was wondering who these men would be.  I totally agree 
with 3 of the 5 (in particular, I really thought Balaam was an 
inspired choice!) but I'm not sure how well Samson fit in for the 
reason that you gave; and he and Solomon were not in the first 5 books 
of Moses, or The Pentateuch.  Titus is from the New Testament.

The reason this nit-picking occurred to me is that I'm a Lutheran, 
Confirmation lay teacher, who takes the 1st year students (11 year 
olds, typically the 6th grade.)  If I had the nerve....   I'm sure the 
6th graders would like it!  But when they got home and told their 
parents what they learned in Confirmation Class today.... oh boy.

A very cute ditty.
