Other than John 3:16, what is your favorite quote from the Bible? You can quote it or list it.
Just as in my own case, you may have many favorite scriptures. List one of more starting with your special favorite. One of mine is John 14:28 "Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I."
In 1948 Doubleday published a book by Lester V. Berrey entitled "A Treasury of Biblical Quotations" a book I treasure partly because it divides the quotes into alphabetical topic headings making searching easy.
Romans 12:12, "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." All-time fave.
"Love thy neighbor as thyself." Simple, excellent way to live.
We have a fun game in our house with our youngster. "What is your favorite color TODAY?". It helps us to appreciate the many, and reminds us that while we are still children today we are different today than yesterday, we grow.
So for today, taken from the International Children's Bible:
The Lord the Shepherd
A song of David.
23 The Lord is my shepherd. I have everything I need.
2 He gives me rest in green pastures. He leads me to calm water.
3 He gives me new strength. For the good of his name, he leads me on paths that are right.
4 Even if I walk through a very dark valley, I will not be afraid because you are with me. Your rod and your shepherd’s staff comfort me.
5 You prepare a meal for me in front of my enemies. You pour oil of blessing on my head. You give me more than I can hold.
6 Surely your goodness and love will be with me all my life. And I will live in the house of the Lord forever.
Interesting version. The "Children's Bible" is meant for what ages?
Demas I dropped by to say thank you for this question. It has been wonderful to read the responses. The version is written at a 3rd grade level supposedly.
16 But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. 17 Where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. May the LORD do so to me and more also if anything but death parts me from you.”
What Ruth said to Naomi will always be one of my favorites.
From the Book of Wisdom, Chapter 3 indeed...
The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God,
and no torment shall touch them.
They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead;
and their passing away was thought an affliction
and their going forth from us, utter destruction.
But they are in peace.
For if to others, indeed, they seem punished,
yet is their hope full of immortality;
Chastised a little, they shall be greatly blessed,
because God tried them
and found them worthy of himself.
As gold in the furnace, he proved them,
and as sacrificial offerings he took them to himself.
In the time of their judgment they shall shine
and dart about as sparks through stubble;
They shall judge nations and rule over peoples,
and the LORD shall be their King forever.
Those who trust in him shall understand truth,
and the faithful shall abide with him in love:
Because grace and mercy are with his holy ones,
and his care is with the elect.
But the wicked shall receive a punishment to match their thoughts,
since they neglected righteousness and forsook the LORD.
For those who despise wisdom and instruction are doomed.
Vain is their hope, fruitless their labors,
and worthless their works.
Their wives are foolish and their children wicked,
accursed their brood.
John: What is the origin of The Ancient Book of Wisdom?
The Book of Wisdom or Wisdom of Solomon, sometimes referred to simply as Wisdom or the Book of the Wisdom of Solomon, is one of the books of the Bible. It is considered scripture, classified as deuterocanonical (meaning "second canon"...
Do not conform any longer to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Romans 12:2
Deuteronomy 6:5 - You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
Matthew 22:37 - “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
Matthew 6:33 "But seek ye FIRST the Kingdom of God and his RIGHTEOUSNESS, and ALL these things shall be added unto you!"
KNOWING is GROWING into HIS likeness! For JESUS is PROGRESSION when one "STUDIES" His Word, believing, and not mere complacency! (II Corinthians 3:18)
I love it ALL!
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean unto your own understanding.
verse 6, In all your ways, acknowledge Him and he will direct your paths.
