    Default Favorite bible scriptures

    what is your fave bible scriptures?
    I hope this thread is ok to make if not remove it?

    some of mine are

    (Proverbs 15:1 KJV)
    A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

    (Matthew 6:14 KJV)
    For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

    (Ecclesiastes 7:9 KJV)
    Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.


    (John 15:12-14,17 KJV)
    (12) This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. (13) Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (14) Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. (17) These things I command you, that ye love one another.

    (1 John 4:21 KJV)
    And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

    and many more..........

    Sound speech that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil things to say of you. -Titus2:8

    For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. -Proverbs 8:7

    Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. -Proverbs 8: 10-11

    Let not mercy and truth forsake thee; bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart. So shalt thou find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man. -Proverbs 3:3-4

    Flee also youthful lusts;but follow righteousness, faith, charity , peace, with them that call on the LOrd out of a pure heart. -II Timothy 2:22

    And above all these things, put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.- Colossians 3: 14-15

    I will not leave you comfortless, I will come to you. -St. John 14:18

    Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God. -St. Matthew 5:8

    Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: other wise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in their synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth. That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. St. Matthew 6: 1-4

    Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it. Say not unto thy neighbour , Go, and come again, and tomorrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee. Proverbs 3: 27-28


    I could go on and on....

    If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. -St. John 15: 7

    PSALM 37

    Do not be provoked by evildoers; do not envy those who do wrong.

    Like grass they wither quickly; like green plants they wilt away.

    Trust in the LORD and do good that you may dwell in the land and live secure.

    Find your delight in the LORD who will give you your heart's desire.

    Commit your way to the LORD; trust that God will act

    And make your integrity shine like the dawn, your vindication like noonday.

    Be still before the LORD; wait for God. Do not be provoked by the prosperous, nor by malicious schemers.

    Give up your anger, abandon your wrath; do not be provoked; it brings only harm.

    Those who do evil will be cut off, but those who wait for the LORD will possess the land.

    Wait a little, and the wicked will be no more; look for them and they will not be there.

    But the poor will possess the land, will delight in great prosperity.

    The wicked plot against the just and grind their teeth at them;

    But the LORD laughs at them, knowing their day is coming.

    The wicked draw their swords; they string their bows To fell the poor and oppressed, to slaughter those whose way is honest.

    Their swords will pierce their own hearts; their bows will be broken.

    Better the poverty of the just than the great wealth of the wicked.

    The arms of the wicked will be broken; the LORD will sustain the just.

    The LORD watches over the days of the blameless; their heritage lasts forever.

    They will not be disgraced when times are hard; in days of famine they will have plenty.

    The wicked perish, the enemies of the LORD; Like the beauty of meadows they vanish; like smoke they disappear.

    The wicked borrow but do not repay; the just are generous in giving.

    For those blessed by the Lord will possess the land, but those accursed will be cut off.

    Those whose steps are guided by the LORD; whose way God approves, may stumble, but they will never fall, for the LORD holds their hand.

    Neither in my youth, nor now in old age have I ever seen the just abandoned or their children begging bread.

    The just always lend generously, and their children become a blessing.

    Turn from evil and do good, that you may inhabit the land forever.

    For the LORD loves justice and does not abandon the faithful.

    When the unjust are destroyed, and the children of the wicked cut off, the just will possess the land and live in it forever.

    The mouths of the just utter wisdom; their tongues speak what is right.

    God's teaching is in their hearts; their steps do not falter.

    The wicked spy on the just and seek to kill them.

    But the LORD does not leave the just in their power, nor let them be condemned when tried.

    Wait eagerly for the LORD, and keep to the way; God will raise you to possess the land; you will gloat when the wicked are cut off.

    I have seen ruthless scoundrels, strong as flourishing cedars.

    When I passed by again, they were gone; though I searched, they could not be found.

    Observe the honest, mark the upright; those at peace with God have a future.

    But all sinners will be destroyed; the future of the wicked will be cut off.

    The salvation of the just is from the LORD, their refuge in time of distress.

    The LORD helps and rescues them, rescues and saves them from the wicked, because in God they take refuge.
    Our "Children" Are The Future...WE Are The World...Keep Helping To Heal The World...Knowledge IS Growth...Education IS the Key~~~

    Woah! I had that in my original post but I shortened it (because I thought the post was too long) and removed that one. I need to remind myself of that particular scripture a lot, I'm afraid. Thanks for posting it.

    Here are some of the others I took off...

    ~ …Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires. Song of Songs 3:5(NIV)

    ~ No one whose hope is in You will ever be put to shame. Ps. 25: 3(NIV)

    ~ Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. Jeremiah 33: 3(NIV)

    ~ “ 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 a hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11(NIV)

    Do not plot harm against your neighbor, who lives trustfully near you. Do not accuse a man for no reason— when he has done you no harm -Proverbs 3:29-30 (NIV)

    I put that on the banner I sent to California for fans to hold at the courthouse during the trial in support of MJ...I liked that quote and I thought it was so true.

    Luke 4, 1-13

    Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the desert, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry.

    The devil said to him, "If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread."

    Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone."

    The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to him, "I will give you all their authority and splendor, for it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. So if you worship me, it will all be yours."



    Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.'"

    The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. "If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down from here. For it is written:
    'He will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you carefully;
    they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'"

    Jesus answered, "It says: 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'"

    When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.
    believe in yourself, no matter what.
