I was wondering what everyone's favorite Bible verses are. I'm not sure if there is a thread for this, so I thought I'd make one. :)

Hmmm... I like Job 39:19-24. It's about horses. :D
I also like (of course) John 3:16 and Psalm 23, mostly because I memorized them when I was little. I really do like them, though. :D

So, what is your favorite Bible verse(s)? :D

Good thread, Emmalina! :D

Wow, just one? ;) There are so many, many good ones I find it hard to pick my favourites. I love Psalm 56:3-4, Psalm 46:1-3, and I also love the ones in my signature. :D I love Ephesians 6, because it talks of the armour of God. I love Romans 13:12 also (my avatar :D).

Phillipians 4:6-7, 1 Thessalonians 4:11, 1 Timothy 4:12, 2 Timothy 2:22, Hebrews 4:12, 1 Corinthians 13:13 are all very special to me as well. :D

Sorry, couldn't pick just one! :D

It's supposed to be for all your favorite Bible verses. You can post as many as you want too. :D

I couldn't think of all my favorites today, but I'll post them when I do. :D

These are probably my two favorites.

(2 Chronicles 7:14) - "If My people, who are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My Face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

Not sure how accurately I quoted that, but there ya go!

(Romans 5:8) - "But God commended His love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

I would like to preach on both of these passages, actually.
God bless,
Crushmaster.

I like the first one of your favourites, Crush. :D Mum has a tape that has songs from Scripture, and that is one of them.

I love this thread, Emma! :)

A few of my favourite are:

Isa 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.


Psa 31:20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.

Jas 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
Jas 3:18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

Great thread idea!

I love John 3:16 and the Lord's Prayer (the two staples of Bible verses), Psalm 23:1, Proverbs 12:1, Psalm 27:1, Proverbs 3:5, Proverbs 3:24, Isaiah 41:10, Matthew 6:34, Joshua 1:9, Samuel 12:24. Out of all of those, my top five would be Matthew 6:34, Proverbs 12:1, Psalm 27:1, Proverbs 3:24, and John 3:16. And, of course, I love many more!

For me it's pretty circumstantial, but presently my life verse is Proverbs 16:9, "In his heart man plans his life, but the Lord leads his steps."

It's really important to me because as I figure out college and what my life is going to look like in the coming days I can trust the Lord has a plan for me. That verse always helps me realize that I'm not in control of my life, but God is.

This is a great topic!
I love Isaiah 40:28-31
"Have you not known, have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no strength he increases might. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint."
and:
2 Timothy 1:7
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."

I've always loved Isaiah 53:4-5:
"4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed."

And Philippians 4:13. Not because of the inspiration of the sole verse, but because before the phrase, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me," Paul describes not only the good things that he has done, but all of the awful things he went through, being able to endure them solely because of Christ.

Also, the verse in my signature. :)

“A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic-on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg-or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” –C. S. Lewis

I think I remember a thread like this... Anyway:

As a runner I've always been a huge fan of Isaiah 57:10. Oh, and one of the scariest verses I found was Numbers 22:22a. I'll post more later.

I agree completely. :book:

However, here are a few of my favorites:

2 Samuel 22:2

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer


Psalm 103:1-5

Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name.
Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits--
who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.


Proverbs 16:3

Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.

Matthew 6:31-33

Do not worry, saying, `What shall we eat?' or `What shall we drink?' or `What shall we wear?'
For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

That's cool that you memorized Psalm 23, Emmalina. :D My siblings and I memorized Psalm 1 when we were younger. I'm working on memorizing Hebrews 12 at the moment. :D
