Your favorite Bible passages!

It seemed like an obvious thread to start...

Say to the Israelites: "A woman who becomes pregnant and gives birth to a son will be cermonially unclean for seven days, just as she is unclean during her monthly period. On the eighth day the boy is to be circumcised. Then the woman must wait thirty-three days to be purified from her bleeding. She must not touch anything sacred or go to the sanctuary until the days of her purification are over.
If she gives birth to a daughter, for two weeks the woman will be unclean, as during her period. Then she must wait sixty-six days to be purified from her bleeding." Leviticus 12:2-5

If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, "Let us go and worship other gods" (gods that neither you nor your fathers have known, gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), do not yield to him or listen to him. Show him no pity. Do not spare him or shield him. You must certainly put him to death. Your hand must be the first in putting him to death, and then the hands of all the people. Stone him to death, because he tried to turn you away from the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. Deuteronomy 13:6-10

If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property. Exodus 21:20

"Have you allowed all the women to live?" he asked them. They were the ones who followed Balaam's advice and were the means of turning the Israelites away from the Lord in what happened at Peor, so that a plague struck the Lord's people. Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man. Numbers 31:15-18
"For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness." 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

 1 How beautiful you are,

 1 How beautiful you are, my darling! 

Oh, how beautiful! 

Your eyes behind your veil are doves. 

Your hair is like a flock of goats 

descending from Mount Gilead. Your teeth are like a flock of sheep just shorn,  coming up from the washing.  Each has its twin;  not one of them is alone. 3 Your lips are like a scarlet ribbon;  your mouth is lovely.  Your temples behind your veil  are like the halves of a pomegranate. 4 Your neck is like the tower of David,  built with elegance [a] ;  on it hang a thousand shields,  all of them shields of warriors. 5 Your two breasts are like two fawns,  like twin fawns of a gazelle  that browse among the lilies. 6 Until the day breaks  and the shadows flee,  I will go to the mountain of myrrh  and to the hill of incense. 7 All beautiful you are, my darling;  there is no flaw in you.

I like that one 'cause it has a gratuitous boob shot.

1 Corinthians 14:34-35 (New

1 Corinthians 14:34-35 (New American Standard Bible)

 34The women are to keep silent in the churches; for they are not permitted to speak, but are to subject themselves, just as the Law also says.

 35If they desire to learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is improper for a woman to speak in church.


1 Timothy 2:11-12 (New American Standard Bible)

 11A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness.

 12But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.

I adore just about all of Genesis

19:30 And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.

19:31 And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:

19:32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

19:33 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

19:34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

19:35 And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

19:36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.


I love this one, it has such a family value.  Can you even imagine making love to ONE of your daughters let alone TWO of them? And then to remark later that Lot was a righteous man! UUUugh.

god -- I tried you on for size.... you were a little long in the crotch, loose in the waist, short in the length and you made my butt look extra flat. I had to take you back for an exchange.
