Favourite Bible Verses

    Happy Sunday! What are your favourite verses from the Bible? You don’t have to be Christian to answer; there are many Bible verses that people are fond of because they have become so well known.

    Mine might be:
    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 1 Corinthians 13:4

    But this one is so well known that I almost wish that I could say something more obscure that people are not already so familiar with!

    Mine is "go forth and multiply". (But it reads better in the original Aramaic)

    I know! It's hard to single the best out from so much richness.
    My altogether all time favourite bible quote is Job 13:5
    "If only you would be altogether silent, for you that would be wisdom"
    I love this and how it cleverly makes any Bible look like a snake trying to eat itself from the tail upwards-genius!

    I have come out of many a staff training session thinking, 'And Jesus wept'.

    Ezekiel 23:19-20

    Yet she increased her prostitution, remembering the days of her youth when she engaged in prostitution in the land of Egypt. She lusted after their genitals as large as those of donkeys, and their seminal emission was as strong as that of stallions.

    Luke 10:35 (King James Version): And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, "Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee".
    A verse from the Parable of the Good Samaritan. The Samaritan went to the assistance of the "man who fell among thieves" not because he was a relative or even a friend; in fact, he was a complete stranger. The Samaritan carried out a simple act of selfless kindness towards a fellow human being in distress. And when he eventually involved others in the man's care, i.e. the innkeeper, he didn't expect anybody else to take on the financial responsibility for what he had chosen to do.

    The end of Romans, chapter 8 - to be read at my funeral.

    Who, then, can separate us from the love of Christ? Can trouble do it, or hardship or persecution or hunger or poverty or danger or death?
    37 No, in all these things we have complete victory through him who loved us! 38 For I am certain that nothing can separate us from his love: neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers or powers, neither the present nor the future, 39 neither the world above nor the world below—there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord.

    "...he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth." But Lazarus came fifth and lost his beer money for the week.
