What’s your favorite verse in the Bible?


  1. I have many favorites, but #7 is close to the top of the list. Matt. 11:28-29 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

      1. Psalm 139:14
        I will praise thee, for i am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works, and that my soul knoweth right well.

  2. When we used to live in Southern Ontario, the kiddo told us that it was a good place to live because of a part of Isaiah 34:11 “…the hawk and the porcupine shall possess it, the owl and the raven shall dwell in it…”. Perhaps not the original intent of the passage but we were trying to get the kiddos to see how the Bible spoke to them. You listed my favourite at #5 Isaiah 40:31.

  3. My favorite verse I have committed to memory is Psalm 139:23-24: “Search me oh God and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts, see if there’s any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” I pray it back to God several times a week.

  4. My favorite verses are Hebrews 12:1-2. It helps me so much in my walk to remember to throw off everything and fix my eyes on Jesus and just run my race! My dear sisters at my church got my a bracelet charm with this scripture reference engraved on it. 🙂

  5. My favorite varies depending on what’s going on in life. But I’m loving Psalm 27:13 “I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” That is some serious encouragement!

  6. Philippians 4:13 had been a long time favorite of mine. But, I also love Ephesians 4:29. It helps me to be an encourager rather than someone with a sharp or ugly tongue, and it’s a verse I often share with my children when they aren’t being so nice to one another.

  7. Romans 8:28 is mine. But also Ephesians 3:20 – Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,

  8. Isaiah 55:11English Standard Version (ESV)
    so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
    it shall not return to me empty,
    but (A)it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
    and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

  9. One of my favorite verses is from Proverbs. I strive to live each day as a Proverbs woman.
    “She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.” -Proverbs 31:25

  10. Micah 6:8
    He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
    And what does the Lord require of you?
    To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God.

  11. I love Philippians 1:6 “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Jesus Christ” ? (NIV)

  12. Interesting, Shelia at the Love Honor and Vacuum just had a post earlier this week about a good technique to memorize scripture. I posted on her comments about how I was reading through the Bible with you and how that memorization technique will come in handy. 🙂

  13. Courtney! Last night as I was falling asleep I felt a calling in my heart to memorize some bible versus (something I havent done regularly in the past) I was unsure which verses I was meant to learn so I was going to just think about it today and spend some time choosing a few to start with this evening. And then THIS POST! I am going to start with some from your list and then see where I feel led… This is not the first time you have written something I felt was so meant for me! Thank you for all you do and for being such a great role model for me. 🙂

  14. Isaiah 54:17 KJV
    No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord. This is one of my favorite, though I have many!!!

  15. It is hard to choose, however John 14:27 has gotten me through so much. I actually love the whole chapter of John 14. Jesus establishes who He is, tells us the way back home, introduces the Holy Spirit, and so much more. Love this chapter.

  16. A favorite of mine is Ps 73:26 My flesh and my Heart may fail; BUT God IS the Strength of my heart and my portion forever.

  17. When my Grandma was passing away, my grandpa constantly whispered the verses above into her ear as they held on tightly to each other. As soon as she was gone, we bowed our heads and prayed as a large family, all of the parents, kids, cousins, aunts and uncles, and my grandpa prayed a prayer of thanks. After he was finished, we all sang n the hospital room a few of our favorite songs. That was four years ago, now our family verses are Jer 29:11, and Phil 4:13. God has a plan for us, and with him we can do all things. I personally feel like they compliment each other very well. I know that whenever I feel sad or lost in the world, those verse, together or separate, are able to help me through the day.
    Thank you for this post!
    ~Much love, Rachel

  18. My favorite:
    Philippians 4:6
    Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

  19. What’s up,I read your blog named “The Top 10 Most Popular Verses in the Bible {Free Printable Included} – Women Living Well” daily.Your writing style is witty, keep up the good work! And you can look our website about proxy list.

  20. No verse in the Bible can bring more comfort to a dying Christian than Luke 23:43. ” Verily I say to you. Today thou shalt be with Me in Paradise,” Jesus told the thief on the cross next to Him. Only once does Jesus use the Persian word ”paradise” in the Gospel. The word means
    “King’s Gardens”. Those hearing our Lord’s words would understand that Jesus was likening Heaven to the Kings Gardens in Persia, for this is the only earthly reference they would know. The Kings Gardens in Persia always had both animals and plants, just as the original Kings Garden, Eden, did.

  21. Ever since my first grandchild was born 7 years ago, #3 is one of my favorites, because it speaks to me of what I genuinely want for them, especially in these days and the days to come.
