25 Famous Bible Verses

25 Famous Bible VersesIt is difficult to make a list of the best Bible verses – I mean they are all great – right?

But, I decided to compile a list of the most famous Bible verses instead.

This too is difficult, because different Christian circles use certain verses a lot more than others.

That said, these are some of the popular gems that have become famous by their helpfulness and/or repetition.

If you know of some other famous scriptures that you think should be included in this list please add them in the comments below…

On to the famous Bible verses!

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

- John 3:16

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

- 1 Cor 13:4-13

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

- Psalm 23

You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand {generations} of those who love me and keep my commandments.

You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.

Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

You shall not murder.

You shall not commit adultery.

You shall not steal.

You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

- Exodus 20:3-17

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

- Philippians 4:13

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

- Isaiah 40:31

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

- Matthew 6:33

Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

- Joshua 1:8

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

- Ephesians 6:10-18

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

- Proverbs 3:5-6

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.

- Psalms 37:4

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

- Psalms 118:24

You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.

- Isaiah 26:3

Jesus replied: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

- Matthew 22:37-39

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.

- Deuteronomy 31:6

A merry heart does good like a medicine; but a broken spirit dries the bones.

- Proverbs 17:22

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

- Galatians 5:22-23

What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?

- Matthew 16:26

No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.

- Matthew 6:24

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

- John 14:6

The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.

- Proverbs 18:10

Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez, saying, “I gave birth to him in pain.” Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.

- 1 Chronicles 4:9-10

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

- Hebrews 11:6

  1. Jeremiah 29:11-13

    11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

    Galatians 2:20

    I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. The life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

    Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
    Jude 1:24 (KJV)

    -Great list of Bible verses Bob.

    • It is not Jude 1: 24, It is Jude 24. There is only one chapter in Jude

      • well its the 1st and the last chapter so yea technically it is chapter 1

      • Well, actually, saying Jude 24 implies that Jude has 24 chapters, not verses. So, technically, Jude 1:24 is correct.

    “Many are the plans in a man’s heart,
    but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.”

      Isaiah-51:11,phil-4:6-8,john-14:27,heb.-10:35-36,1pet.1:6-9.
      (Pray for God’s will to be done, and not ours)
      Lord, my heart is restless until it finds its rest in You. Thank You that
      in You all things are made new!

      All things are wearisome, more than one can say. The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing (Ecclesiastes 1:8)

      Solomon’s thesis here is, All things are restless. He has observed that there is an inherent restlessness in everything. In fact, it is so widespread that no one can possibly describe all the restlessness of life.

      I hope these verses will be encouraging..

      I love jeremiah- 29:11

    • Do you know which scripture this is from?

  17. For those who are going through great trials and tribulations.
    **
    Todays sufferings are nothing as compared to future glory from Romans

  18. also this hymn
    ‘Quiet my mind Lord,Make me still before you,
    Calm my restless heart,Make me more like you,
    Raise up my hands that are hanging down ,
    With your joy let my heart abound,
    And fill me with your peace.’

  20. John Doe

    Whoever posts these verses should check them first. They are not all accurate and they need to be.

    • J Batteau

      Not accurate according to what version of the bible ? The bible is the oldest print we have and there are many versions in every known language…. MEN have translated this book again and again over the years. At this point it is wise to merely pray to God to open our minds, heart, and eyes so that HE may give us the understanding we need.

    King James Bible

  22. 1 Corinthians 10:13
    13No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

    Romans 8:38-39
    38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Matthew 5:13-16
    13″You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.
    14″You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”

  24. The verses have encouraging and comforting words i request for daily verses

  25. @ ed keith we say this at end of church every sunday. its jude 1:24

  26. lisa parker

    The Lord’s Prayer: Matthew 6:9-13

    Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

  27. 1 John 5:13-15 NIV
    I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he will hear us. And if we know that he hears us – whatever we ask- we know that we have what we asked of him.

  28. Romans 9:35-39
    Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to seperate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

      Thank ypu for sharing one of my very favorites from all of scripture!
      *Note: I believe it is from Romans 8 though ;)

    • Godismyeverything

      @michael you are right! I love this scripture @rosa so much thank you sharing this gives me hope! God bless you!

  29. John 3:16-18

    For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to comdemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believeis condemned already, becausehe has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

  30. Michael O A

    But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.
    1John 1:9

    Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.
    Jeremiah 33:3

    “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.
    Before you were born I set you apart
    and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
    Jeremiah 1:5

    They will fight you, but they will fail.
    For I am with you, and I will take care of you.
    I, the Lord, have spoken!”
    Jeremiah 1:19

    Lord, don’t terrorize me!
    You alone are my hope in the day of disaster.
    Jeremiah 17:17

    These are some of my favourite verses in the order of importance. Most of the others have already been featured here. Though I’d usually read and relate well with the King James’ Version, I hope this version would minister to the many contemporary users of English Language. I hope you are blessed by them.

    3:8 A time to love, and a time to hate;

    a time for war, and a time for peace.

      I think it’s hilarious when people say they love scripture and say they want it tattoed on them even though there is a very specific verse in Leviticus that says you shouldn’t tattoo any part of you skin or make cuts in your flesh for the dead. It’s just really enterntaining to me.

      • I remember a time when I was so thrilled to understand one or two bible verses. As time went on, I grew and learned more and more. I’ll always be learning. I have learned to that there is a log in my eye much greater than the speck in my brothers eys. Let’s be patient with our brothers. We all started somewhere and we all loved the scripture we learned even if it was one at a time…I didn’t learn about piercings until after I had my ears pierced. It made me very sad, but I know God loves me anyway. I pray Christ’s Peace adn His Love to reign in our lives.

      • i think it’s hilarious when people like you look down on people that aren’t perfect. Did you ever think that maybe they wanted to be reminded of it everyday? Or are you the only person in the world that can follow the Bible perfectly every seconed of your life? You must be the missing piece in the Trinity…..
        Relax dude, it’s not the end of the world. Yet.

        Have you ever read the whole chapter of Leviticus 19? There are lots of things we are told not to do, for example verse 27 says ““ ‘Do not cut the hair at the sides of your head or clip off the edges of your beard.” (Leviticus 19:27 NIV84) I’m pretty sure Christians have done that one before. You included. There are some things that you have to take as cultural, God was talking to Israel. And yes many of those things we are still suppose to follow. But you also have to look at the way it is being said. When it says ““ ‘Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord.” (Leviticus 19:28 NIV84) God was talking about the practice of mourning the dead. Not about getting a bible verse tattooed on yourself. I think a tatto of a bible verse could lead to great oppeetunities to witness to people.

        • I am a believer in our Saviour and I am proud and privileged to be one of his children. I do have ear and a nose piercing, if I were to get a tattoo I would like something religious, as God and my faith are the only things that won’t go out of fashion for me! :) I think we need to realise that young people like to express themselves and sometimes aren’t aware of parts of the bible that includes no inking or bleeding; however I interpreted that as a sacrifice of other religions at ‘funerals’. I am not nearly as well read as you obvously are but I do believe and I don’t think anyone who gets a religious tattoo would ever try to be offending anyone! I hope that this doesn’t upset you but I think faith is such a strong thing; we need to celebrate peoples different ways of celebrating their faith in God! I hope some agree! I would like a quote regarding forgiving others who trespass against us, I know the basics but am looking for more of a forgiveness quote, something perhaps that is slightly inspirational!??! Sorry if Im asking too much! :)

          • Brandon

            Emma, what about the “faithful and just to forgive us” verse?

            But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.
            1John 1:9

        • Greg Alexander

          excellent point Stephanie, I like opening up to people interested and educating them when i can ,and my tatoos remind me of certain times and events in my life that might some day down the road help even just one person. God bless you

      • Josh Peterson

        Hey Ryan, You have to realize the context. God was guiding the Israelites at the time, morally as well as literally. God set down rules that would of helped the Israelites stay pure and keep them away from other tribes ritual’s, some of these rules (like tattoos) don’t pertain to us anymore in the 21st century. For example at this time other tribes around the israelites would tattoo themselves all over, for their tribe or rituals or for mourning the dead, which would keep the focus off God and on to whatever idol they were worshiping. When reading the old testament you have to realize not everything that God told the Israelites at the time, while it was the right thing to do in the circumstances, applies to us today. (Stephanie makes great points below, My youth pastor has a tatoo of a bible verse on his wrist)

      • Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. ; )

      • it also says not to judge for u will be judged as u judge others….only GOD can judge and if I’m not mistaken that is in the old testament and we were told that we do not have to follow some of the things he once judged us for such as the animals that were forbiden to eat are no longer forbiden and etc…..

    I’m not particularly religious, but I do have a favorite verse.

    John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

  36. Leonard Gustafson

    Therefore there is now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.

  37. Rex Mericle

    Bob,
    Great information. Very helpful to me about a potential beginning into the blogosphere! I have two sister-in-laws encouraging me to write and I love to do it. I too have a favorite verse(s). I personally believe it is when Jesus, himself, tolds us exactly who he was by quoting Isaiah 61, who himself was referencing the 25th Chapter of Leviticus and the Year of Jubilee! It is the first “sermon” Jesus spoke. I believe they are some of the most beautiful words ever spoken. ” The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor;He hath sent me to heal the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and the recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” Luke 4:18,19 (KJV)

    “when the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and rescues them from all their troubles” (Psalm 34:17)

    2. stay strong in faith
    3. God is always here for me

    No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.

  41. Romans 8:38-39
    Iam convinced that nothing can ever separate us from Gods love,Our fears for today ,our worries of tommorrow and even the powers of hell cant keep Gods love away.
    Whether we are high up in the sky or on yhe deepest ocean ,nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the loive of God that is reveal in christ jesus our lord.

    Philippians 4: 12-13
    Amen, Paul.

  44. “Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.”

  49. hi rosie, maybe what you are looking for is in Hebrews chapter 6 somewhere. it talks of the falling away from God subject.

  50. Can somebody help me to find the complete verse of this:
    “Dont let anybody look down on you because you are young. But set an example for..”

    bible verse left out is in 2chronicles 7:14.

  67. I did indeed enjoy prayers and scriptures. Now is the time to pray and praise the Lord our God. He is after all not only our Savior but also, our Lord. We must try our very best to walk like Jesus!

  68. Above all else, guard your heart,
    for it is the wellspring of life.
    Put away perversity from your mouth;
    keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
    Let your eyes look straight ahead,
    fix your gaze directly before you.
    Make level paths for your feet
    and take only ways that are firm.
    Do not swerve to the right or the left;
    keep your foot from evil.

    Proverbs 4:23-27

  69. MY FAVOURITE QUOTES:

    2 Corinthians 5:7
    …Walk by Faith not by Sight..

    Proverbs 4:18-19
    The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.

    Isiah 40:26
    Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.

    Isiah 42:5
    He who created the heavens and stretched them out who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it.

    Isaiah 55:10-11
    As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
    so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
    It will not return to me empty,
    but will accomplish what I desire
    and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

    Proverbs 3:19-20
    By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; by his knowledge the deeps were divided and the clouds let drop the dew.

    Proverbs 16:9
    In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.

    NIV

    I also find the following PROVERBS quite amusing & TRUE :)

    17:12 Better to meet a bear robbed of her cubs than a fool in his folly.

    11:22 Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion.

    All the best in growing your relationship with God.
    I wish everyone ceased following worldly culture and followed the word of the Lord & the plan he has for each of us.
    I find it so awesome how some people heard their calling from God and they followed it- quit life long careers, sold up their house, gave away their posessions and went into the great unknown WITH FAITH alone & came to live a better life than ever solely by trusting in God.
    I hope we all will have enough courage/trust to do that when our time comes . . . That’s why I strive to Walk by Faith Not by Sight
    (2 Corinthians 5:7)

  70. I can’t say i’ve ever read the Bible, but I woke up this morning wanting to live my life with God. For the past month i’ve been saying this, and trying, but now i’m actually making an effort. I want to know more about our heavenly father and live day to day with him. I really enjoyed reading these pots, not all I might understand, but I know now if I keep searching for God and trying to understand and find answers, I know he’ll help me.

    God Bless, and thank you all~

  71. PRAISE THE LORD,

    Now i see my life florishing like a tree planted by the river side when i walk with the Lord. Have never been short of anything for i have placed my trust in him. Psalms 1:1-6 is one to meditate on.

    God Bless you all

    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

      Yeah how about this one.
      “We understand perfectly what these things are saying. If we don’t we go get the NIV”.
      -The Book of Things I Randomly Make Up.

      Preteens and teens as a general rule understand scripture very easily. Now if you are talking about 3-6 year olds… that’s another story.
      I, as a 16year old, understand every verse posted here. My little brother, age 13, understands every scripture here.
      Give us a bit more credit if you don’t mind.

  87. Agustin j gonzalez jr

    Beatiful work, thank you as well as all the posters as well, I dont think anyone mentioned the ones from the gospel dont remember which books but I try to remember them to the best of my ability, the ones about not worrying about what to eat or wear, look at the lilies they neither toil or spin, not even king solomon was arrayed like this in all his glory, and theres a mention about birds as well and the one verse I think its at the we end of luke where God seperates the goats from the sheep, he puts the sheep on his right side and tells them that they can enter the kingdom of heaven for they saw Him naked and clothed them, was in prison and in the hospital and visited Him, and the people questioned as to when that was and He responded “you surely did it to your brethren you surely did it for me as well”

    @Lauren A great verse is psalm 118:9 for teenage girls. Its what i live by. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to put one’s trust in princes

    Pray for Jesus to be put back in schools, and holidays and everywhere He should me. They would be less violence in schools and in neighborhood. 2Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my ma,e. shall humble themselves, and pray and seek my face. amd turn from their wicked ways;then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the President to seek God before making decisions. God mericful, full of grace and love for us all. LaRita

  91. Kayla,
    Try PSALMS 139. It is a bit long but I love it. It has helped me through so many hard times. I went through a nasty divorce and a constant battle over my child over the last 8 years. It is nice to know the lord walks with me always.
    The last verses say
    Look deep into my heart, Lord
    and find out everything I am thinking
    Don’t let me follow evil ways,
    but lead me in your way
    that time has proven true.
    Hugs and many prayers for you!!

Numbers 6:24-26 The LORD bless you and keep you;the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;
    the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace…
    Everyday- I have to say a verse to myself- it is my weapon. When I face many adversities I remember that I am getting much closer to God. The devil will never mess with you unless he knows he already has you. So I rejoice in all my trials and tribulations and I always ask for uncommon favor…from where I have been in life- i refuse to give up trusting in the Lord- it is not and will never be an option. I am trading all my sorrows for the joy of the Lord!!

    this is a very interesting page have read and gone throuhgh major verses in this page ,have to say that this is a really good programme ,for it lets people impart and gain the bible knowledge they posses and extract what they lack,this is a good way to stayin touch with the teachings of the holy book of god .

    god bless u and everyone at this,

  101. These quotations are extremly inspiring,
    i’m realizing how much i’ve wandered from Christ;
    and through reading them; i KNOW i want to come back into his arms and serve him well.
    Thank you

  102. someone help me to find a verse in the bible it goes somehow like this flourished and forgive once your partner do wrong and never bring out the topic again.:

    • The bible does *not* instruct us to forget sins, but only to forgive them. (Forgive our tresspassers /debtors as we would like to be forgiven)

      One preacher used to give this example:

      If you walk into a dark alley and get mugged and badly beaten, you should forgive your attacker. However, you should not forget that he lurks in that particular alley, and if you ever enter that alley again and find him there, you should not forget what happened previously.

      I also need to add, you should be willing and ready to forgive, but if the guilty person does not want forgiveness then you forgive them “in your heart”, and move on.

  103. DENNIS EMONYI

    I find myself refreshed, replenished, reinvigorated, refilled when I read the incorruptible seed which is the precious Word of God. I have read many inspirational books written by different authors but I have found no treasure in them regarding the well-being of my life. Meditating deeply on the Word of God gives birth to having peace with Our Saviour, prosperity, success, comfort, insight, encouragement, name them. Its through the prestigious Word of God that everything came into being and its full of divine power. May my Lord Jesus Christ through His Spirit give me the deeper understanding, revelation of the scriptures in Jesus Mighty Name and let any power of darkness that may oppose the Word of God into my life be disgraced, fall down and die completely. Bravo for your good job and may the rewarding Father meet all your needs in abundance.

  104. I would add the first couple of verses of John 1. “In the beginning was the word… “

  105. zack hudson

    what about psalm 144:1
    “praise the lord my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle.”

    this gives me hope….Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

  110. This is just what i needed. What a blessing it was to find this. Thank you God.

    But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

    Matthew 19:26

  112. Lynette

    Philippians 4:6 (New International Version)
    Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (my FAVORITE verse!! Helped me thru some tough times. Amen)

    Hebrews 11:1
    Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

  113. God is good. God is simply good. Thank and praise the Lord for the wonderful words he has given us. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with us all, Amen.

    I am looking for a good bible verse for my fathers funeral next week. My mother has asked me to say a few words. My fondest and earliest memory of him and I was when he would take me to sunday school.

    I am looking for something simple and sort. My father was a veteran also- are there any passages for military persons?

    I have read many of the postings- and can not stop the tears of joy..
    :)

  115. Thanks for all the verses! =)

    Here’s a poem I wrote when I was younger. It’s not much…

    World
    by:Nikki
    Why does the world consume us all
    While Lucifer is waiting for us to fall
    Are we really blinded by life it’s self?
    all the busyness and all the wealth?
    My heart yearns for SOMETHING I cannot see
    But another SOMETHING seems to keep me away from the mystery
    Call to me oh little voice in my head
    For I cannot heart Thee but the world instead
    Lucifer has a mighty sword and commands many
    But I know You have one also and can thwart any
    Save me O Lord from the darkness within
    As I yell for help to protect me from my sin.

  116. I Thank-God for me finding this. One of my best scriptures is. And he said unto me. My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strenght is made perfect in weakness. 11Corinthians 12-9

  117. @Lauren

    I can tell you one thing that everyday someone gives their life to the Lord all the angels in heaven rejoice, the day you woke up and said I wanna follow you Lord the angels sounded their trumpets and all the heavens wept in Joy,

    God does not require us to succeed and be perfect christians, all he asks for is that we try with Godly intent, and be of sober mind when we do try, often people get discouraged by their short coming and when they have fallen into sin, they believe that there is no way out, like they are in a box and they can’t get out, and my advise to everyone is that no matter how bad you think your sin was, God will forgive you, we humans will always have conditions for things! Like I’ll only take you back if, or it can only be forgiven if, God does not work that way, he does not have conditions, he loves us unconditionally, he welcomes us back with open arms, all we need to do is ask him for forgiveness, and he washes away our sins, an we are pure in the sight of God!

    The Bible says, we need to forgive 7X70 times everyday for the same sin! I’m so Glad to say that our God really is an awesome God,

    Thank you for allowing me to share with you all, and may you be blessed in your walks with God everyday, and may you be kept safe by Gods mighty works!

  118. awesome bible verses! here is another bible verse that i love:

    “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son , that whoever may believe in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
    John 3:16

  119. no MY will be done, but THY will be done.

  120. What version are these Bible quotes from? I liked the Phillipians 3:14 one but it’s not in my Bible

  121. Matthew

    No one’s mentioned my favorites yet…

    Philippians 4:4– Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: rejoice!

    Psalm 42: As the deer panteth o’er the water, so my soul longeth after thee. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? Day and night I weep, and my tears are my only sustenance, whilst men say to me all day long, “Where is your God?” My heart breaks when I remember the past, when I went with the multitudes to the house of God and led them as they walked along, singing and shouting praise to God. Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your faith in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. My soul is downcast within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of Jordan, the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar. Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life. I say to God my Rock, “Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?” My bones suffer mortal agony as my foes keep asking me, “Where is your God?” Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your faith in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

    The first one is pretty straightforward… no matter what’s going on in our lives, we should REJOICE in His holy name!

    The second one is my favorite, although I generally say one verse when asked.

    Psalm 42:11– Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your faith in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

    This one (and the whole psalm) is saying something similar. Although at times it may seem like God isn’t there, and our enemies taunt us and hurt us and make us wonder if He’s truly there, all we need to do is remember our faith, and all will be well. Again: no matter what we live through, no matter what we’ve done: God is always with us. Simply put: never be sad, you have no reason to be: the Most Holy is looking out for us, protecting us. Sadness, fear, anger: all are meaningless when compared to God.

  122. this is one of my favourite scripture,
    Psalms 91:10-11, there shall no evil befall thee, NEITHER shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
    For he shall give thy angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. Amen

  123. Johanna

    The only way to be successful in life is Jesus,..when you have Him, everything flows in the right direction.

    Matthew 5:16 has always been special to me.

    • Connie Harmse

      Prov 3:5 Trust in the Lord with your whole heart. He will help you forgive and forget all who has hurt your heart.

  137. Peculiar1

    Tara, here are some good ones about letting go of the past:

    If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17

    Because of the Lord’s great love we are not destroyed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. ~ Lamentations 3:22-23

    He lifted me out of the miry clay; He set my feet upon a Rock and established my goings. He put a new song in my mouth, and sweet words of praise I will sing. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD. ~ Psalm 40:2-3

    Cast all your cares on Him because He cares for you. ~ 1 Peter 5:7

    I will give you peace like a river. ~ Isaiah 66:12

    Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day already has enough trouble of its own. ~ Matthew 6:34

    Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 4:6-7

    If we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of Him. ~ 1 John 5:14-15

    We all are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory. ~ 2 Corinthians 3:18

    Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy times seven times. ~ Matthew 18:21-22

    God did not give us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love, self-control, and of a sound mind. ~ 2 Timothy 1:7

    For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven. ~ Ecclesiastes 3:1

    He is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us. ~ Ephesians 3:20

    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual wickedness in high places. ~ Ephesians 6:12

    The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. ~ Galatians 5:22-23

    Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. ~ Galatians 6:9

    Is anything too hard for the LORD? ~ Genesis 18:14

    You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. ~ Isaiah 26:3

    No weapon formed against you shall prosper. ~ Isaiah 54:17

    “I know the plans I think toward you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and an expected end.” ~ Jeremiah 29:11

    If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated Me first. ~ John 15:18

    Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. ~ Joshua 24:15

    He is the one who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy. ~ Jude 1:24

    If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me. ~ Luke 9:23, Luke 14:27

    Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Hell. ~ Matthew 10:28

    Come to Me all of you who are weary and I will give you rest. ~ Matthew 11:28

    To him who overcomes I will give a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it. ~ Revelation 2:17

    I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. ~ Romans 12:1-2

    We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God and who are called according to His purpose. ~ Romans 8:28

    I hope this helps a little.

  138. Julie

    ACTS 2:38 “Then Peter said unto them, REPENT and be baptized every one of you in the name of JESUS CHRIST for the remission of your sins and you shall recieve the gift of the HOLY GHOST with evidences of speaking in tongues

    • Julie, please note that the Bible does not say in Acts 2:38 that speaking in tongues would be an evidence of having received the spirit. This is a very difficult topic. The holy spirit works in our lives in many ways. Galatians 5:22-23 tells us the fruit of the spirit in our lives is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, self-control.

      “…and you shall receive the gift of the holy spirit. And this promise is to you, and your children, and to all of are afar off, as many as our Lord God shall call.”

      May God bless us all.

  139. melvin

    This was a wonderful idea that you executed masterfully. It will bless many, as it has me. Always, Keep the Faith

  140. Thomas

    1 Corinthians 10:31
    31Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

  141. One of my favorites:
    Psalm 27
    Of David.

    1 The LORD is my light and my salvation—
    whom shall I fear?
    The LORD is the stronghold of my life—
    of whom shall I be afraid?

  142. Romans 8 vs 28 , All things work out together, for the good for those who LOVE the LORD………..

  143. Hi guys!

    I’m starting to write a blog about my devotions. But, I’m having a difficulty finding a nice domain name for my blog site. Can anyone help me please? The examples I found are – Daily Bread, Talk Jesus, The Daily Prophet, etc.

  144. Elizabeth

    Romans 8:28

    All things work together for good for those who love God.

  145. Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

    i have accepted God as a saver in my life,i love him so much.i read bible most of the time, now i need way to stay strong in jesus,and how to do right alwys.i hate being confused like this,sometime i get to a point where i don”t know whats wrong or right.i thank God for all these verses.

  148. What a great site! i just stumbled apon it while researching verses on “God our rock, and trusting God”, this is for our kids holiday club that starts tomorrow. I have found a few but nothing seems quite right, can anyone recommend something that would fit in with the theme of secret agents, and barnicles on a rock?

    a couple of my all time fav’s are;

    Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

    Isaiah 54:17 ‘No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. this is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is thier vindication from me’ declares the LORD.

    Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, ‘Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.

    These verses have really helped me through some stuff….

    God Bless you all x

  149. ” And if God is for us , Then who can be against us ”

  150. Our father truly loves us and patiently and wholeheartedly wants to bless us…. 2 Chronicles 16:9
    “For the eyes of the Lord search back and forth across the whole earth, looking for the people whose hearts are perfect toward him so that he can show his great power in helping them…”
