Psalm 105 and Psalm 106 provides a great source for a review of the Old Testament. These verses start with the story of how God made a covenant with Abraham then continue on to explain the characters of Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph. After Joseph the verses talk about how the people stayed in Egypt until the time of Moses. After Moses helped take the people out of Egypt it explains how the people disobeyed God and how they all died in the desert.
