Drawing a Bible verse inside a maze

When completing a maze, instead of drawing a line through the maze, what if you wrote a series of Bible verses? If the maze is long enough, perhaps a chapter from the Bible, or a Psalm.

The Psalm would bend and turn throughout the maze. That might be kinda interesting, right? I gave it a shot. There’s a great online maze generator that lets you create all sorts of mazes to any size, and any complexity. I made one that was a medium size for a letter sheet of paper.

After just a couple bends, I quickly realized that the Psalm would be pretty illegible with the sharp right turns.

First attempt: Hand writing a bible verse in a maze

Yipes! This is pretty impossible to write the words with all these turns! Since the maze I printed out is a PDF, I have access to the digital form of this puzzle. Maybe I can use some Adobe Illustrator magic to have the text automatically flow on the answer path.

Certainly enough. It’s possible!

Again, the result isn’t all that legible. The turns are way too sharp. The letters are all juxtaposed weird.

But I’m not giving up. This digital mockup shows me generally how big I need to write the letters to make it fit into one maze. Maybe if I hand-draw this, I might be able to make the text a bit more legible.

We’ll see. For now, I just wanted to share the current state of his exploration.
