Thursday Thirteen #27



13 of my favorite Bible verses


1. Psalms 23:1, " The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want."
2. John 1:1, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
3. Hebrews 11:1, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
4. Matthew 6:33, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
5. Nehemiah 8:10, "Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength."
6. James 5:16, "Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."
7. 3 John 1:2, "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."
8. Romans 12:2, "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
9. James 1:4, "But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing."
10. The whole book of ESTHER – the life of Esther is so wonderful to read.

Esther appears in the Bible as a "woman of deep piety, faith, courage, patriotism, and caution, combined with resolution; a dutiful daughter to her adopted father, docile and obedient to his counsels, and anxious to share the king's favour with him for the good of the Jewish people. There must have been a singular grace and charm in her aspect and manners, since 'she obtained favour in the sight of all them that looked upon her' (Esther 2:15). That she was raised up as an instrument in the hand of God to avert the destruction of the Jewish people, and to afford them protection and forward their wealth and peace in their captivity, is also manifest from the Scripture account." - Matthew Henry Commentary.

11. Ephesians 6:12, "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."
12. 1 Corinthians 13:1, "Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal."
13. 1 Corinthians 13:13, "And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity."

And, one for the road: 1 John 4:8, "He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."

Cheryl said...

Yours reminds me that I need to do a TT on my favorite verses. Psalm 23 reminds me so much of my grandparents . I miss them so and look forward to seeing them in the long tomorrow!

Nancy J. Bond said...

These are very uplifting verses. I particularly like #13. And thank you for your visit! Happy TT!

Robin said...

The kids here (in Israel) all love the book of Esther the best too - because it means it's Purim time, which means costumes, candy, the works!

Happy TT, and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Stine said...

All beautiful words.

Coco said...

Love the verses! Especially Psalm 23. That has always been my favorite.
BTW, you mentioned 3 Jon 1:2 twice at #7 and #9...

Thanks for visiting my blog :)

Tink said...

You know your path isn't mine, but a lot of those verses are quite universal. And I agree with you on the book of Esther.
My TT is about posts without comments.

Carmen said...

the one I quote most often is Jeremiah 29:11 - For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. Plans to better you and not to harm you, to give you a future with hope.

Thanks for sharing! Always a good reminder of who is really in charge. My favorite is 2 Cor. 4:18 - this world we live in is temporary.

Mama Duck said...

All of I Corinthians 13, really. Excellent choices. Happy TT!

these are all wonderful verses. How can anything from The Bible not be right? I also am very fond of the book of Esther... Have you seen the new movie that is out called " One Night with the King" It is about the book of Esther... It is very good.

Happy TT :)

This is a GREAT TT. Possibly the most favorite one I've read this week. Isn't it wonderful how the Word can speak to us?

Mama's Moon said...

Great list, very uplifting and always good to remember. Thanks for sharing these! Happy Thursday!!!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Ooooh, Esther. My favorite of all the Biblical heroines. I call her one of the first feminists and people look at me funny, but think about it. She stood up to her husband! She risked him putting her to death!

Btw, have you read The Gilded Chamber, by Rebecca Kohn? It's a take on the story of Esther. Very interesting, what she suggests about Vashti.

Happy TT. Aren't you glad you stopped at West of Mars today? I returned with book suggestions!

Indiana Amy said...

What a great 13! Love it! One of my favorites is in Job 19:25“As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives,And at the last He will take His stand on the earth.
26 “Even after my skin is destroyed,Yet from my flesh I shall see God;
27 Whom I myself shall behold, And whom my eyes will see and not another.
My heart faints within me!

I LOVED to read your TT. I did one on bible verses a week or so ago. Great TT!

Barbara said...

Butterfly, I read a little every day, some more than others. I really need to get back to studying more like I used to do. You just let little things hinder you, and before you know it, the day is gone.

Barbara said...

Christine, I also love the story of Ruth and Naomi.
