Favourite Quotes from the bible?

Post by n4x » April 17th, 2018, 6:27 am

Hey there guys,

as someone who wouldn't really call himself religious, but rather interested in the history of religion and how it shaped societies over the centuries, actually sitting down and reading the bible is always a curious but also fun experience.

So what is your personal favorite Quote from the bible?

I didn't really mark nice quotes while reading for a bit, but rather marked interesting concepts like "1. John 3 2", man becoming like god when he identifies him for what he is, or hints to a "historical" Abraham, being born in the Mesopotamia city of Ur.

This isn't completely without own interest, for I'm looking for a nice quote from the bible, which should be unrelated to "god", that could be used as a "wedding line" or "trust demanding" (not quite sure about the English word here, the quote that a couple uses in a church marriage).

Greetings

I have lots of favorites. Here's one:

1 Corinthians 14
English Standard Version (ESV)
As in all the churches of the saints, 34 the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. 35 If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.
"As usual... it depends."

“Like a dog that returns to its vomit Is a fool who repeats his folly.” (Proverbs 26:11).
This is crazy enough to be amusing.

1 Corinthians Chapter 13 "the love chapter" defines what love is and is not. Paul came pretty close to getting something right. " Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails.
