Your favorite Bible verse?

I saw this tweet today, and thought it would be interesting to ask you what is YOUR favorite Bible verse.

I’m not sure that I can choose just one, but this comes immediately to mind:

Psalm 121:1-2

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.

    Hard to pick a ‘favorite’, but the following verse is definitely one of them.

    ‘Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.’ – Isaiah 41:10(KJV)

    Revelation 21:3-4 KJV
    3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

    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.

    My two favorites are:John 3:16
    King James Version
    16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    and: the 23 Psalm

    The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
    3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
    4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
    5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
    6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

  4. The Tundra PA says:

    All of these would be on my favorites list, along with Psalm 100:

    Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

    Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

    Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

    Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

    For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

    It is not a Catholic Bible, but I just love the language of the King James Version. The closest I have found among the Catholic Bibles is the Douhey-Rheims, but it doesn’t have the flowing beauty of the language of the KJV.

    Stella, is there a typo in the last line of Psalm 121? …for “every” more?

    Then there is Ephesians 6:10-18 –

    10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

    11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

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

    13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

    14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

    15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

    16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

    17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

    18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

    This one is read at the beginning of Midnight Mass and I love it so.

    Reading 1
    Is 9:1-6
    The people who walked in darkness
    have seen a great light;
    upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom
    a light has shone.
    You have brought them abundant joy
    and great rejoicing,
    as they rejoice before you as at the harvest,
    as people make merry when dividing spoils.
    For the yoke that burdened them,
    the pole on their shoulder,
    and the rod of their taskmaster
    you have smashed, as on the day of Midian.
    For every boot that tramped in battle,
    every cloak rolled in blood,
    will be burned as fuel for flames.
    For a child is born to us, a son is given us;
    upon his shoulder dominion rests.
    They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero,
    Father-Forever, Prince of Peace.
    His dominion is vast
    and forever peaceful,
    from David’s throne, and over his kingdom,
    which he confirms and sustains
    by judgment and justice,
    both now and forever.
    The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this!

    And from 2 Timothy chapter 4

    6
    For I am already being poured out like a libation, and the time of my departure is at hand.
    7
    I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith.
    8
    From now on the crown of righteousness awaits me, which the Lord, the just judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me, but to all who have longed for his appearance.

    My favorite…

    7 But whatever former things were gains to me [as I thought then], these things [once regarded as advancements in merit] I have come to consider as loss [absolutely worthless] for the sake of Christ [and the purpose which He has given my life].

    8 But more than that, I count everything as loss compared to the priceless privilege and supreme advantage of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord [and of growing more deeply and thoroughly acquainted with Him–a joy unequaled]. For His sake I have lost everything, and I consider it all garbage, so that I may gain Christ,

    9 and may be found in Him [believing and relying on Him], not having any righteousness of my own derived from [my obedience to] the Law and its rituals, but [possessing] that [genuine righteousness] which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith.

    10 And this, so that I may know Him [experientially, becoming more thoroughly acquainted with Him, understanding the remarkable wonders of His Person more completely] and [in that same way experience] the power of His resurrection [which overflows and is active in believers], and [that I may share] the fellowship of His sufferings, by being continually conformed [inwardly into His likeness even] to His death [dying as He did];

    11 so that I may attain to the resurrection [that will raise me] from the dead.

    12 Not that I have already obtained it [this goal of being Christlike] or have already been made perfect, but I actively press on [e]so that I may take hold of that [perfection] for which Christ Jesus took hold of me and made me His own.

    13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider that I have made it my own yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14I press on toward the goal to win the [heavenly] prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
