25 Famous Bible Verses (Top Scriptures On Love, Strength, Hope & More)

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

I Cor 13-4-13
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

Psalm 23
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

10 commandments cover 10 commandments words

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

– Joshua 1:8

Ephesians 6-10-18
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

– 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?

    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.

    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.


    THIS IS MY MOST FAVOURATE SCRIPTURE: Psalms 9:9 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.

    Psalms 9:10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

    -Great list of Bible verses Bob.

    • fred

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

    • Noel

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

    • Sade

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

    • Jarred

      Ok how about, the 24th verse of Jude lol great verses everybody! 🙂

    • Danille Newman

      Well said Jarred! lol Keep the peace.

      (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.

    • kathy morris

      I hope these verses will be encouraging..

      I love jeremiah- 29:11

  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.

    • C Williams

      This is why we should use the King James.

    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.”

    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.

    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. rosa

    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.

    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.

    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!

    3:3 A time to kill, and a time to heal;

    a time to break down, and a time to build up;

    3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh;

    a time to mourn, and a time to dance.

    3:5 A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones;

    a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

    3:6 A time to search, and a time to give something up as lost; 8

    a time to keep, and a time to throw away;

    3:7 A time to rip, and a time to sew;

    a time to keep silent, and a time to speak.

    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.

    • MqL

      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.

    • EMMA

      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)

    • Natalie

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

    • tina

      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.
    Romans 8:1 (NASB)

  37. Rex Mericle

    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)

    “be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

    “so do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10)

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

    i saw these three verses when i was going through hard times and learned these things
    1. do not be so depressed
    2. stay strong in faith
    3. God is always here for me

    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.

    “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.”

    Romans 12:9-13

    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!

  67. Ross

    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

    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.


    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)

  69. Lauren

    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~

    Thank you so much guys especially at Bob for such a blessed site. May God bless you all abundantly in your needs and may this sites contents (bible versus and individual testimonies) always be fruitfull in drawing the lost and scattered flock (man) closer to the shephard (Jesus).
    I started reading the bible recently and trying my best to leave behind my past for i never found any good been apart from God. With this site i have finally found bible versus that will really help me relate to situations and be a better embassader here.
    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
