The Bibleverse is easily my least favorite cinematic universe.

Luke 17:32 - "Remember Lot's wife."

I love that whole passage, but if made to choose one verse, I'd have to go with this one, even more than Luke 17:33. It's so beautifully ominous and I think about it often.


Another of my favorite passages is Isaiah 14:12-14, which is "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer . . ." I tend to gravitate towards stories rather than verses, so my favorite individual verses tend to be the more poetic ones.

I had a music teacher who expressed fondness for John 4:33, as a sly John Cage reference which happens to be an utterly inane verse. I nominate Jeremiah 49:24, strangely evocative and alluring for a prophecy of heathens like me being smote.

Ezekiel 23:20

"There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses."

It was only a matter of time before someone with the perpetual mind of an adolescent boy posted this. I wish I could call myself surprised.

That passage from Ezekiel has a reputation for being the dirtiest verse in the Bible for good reason, but there's some similarly shocking stuff in the Book of Hosea, especially if one has a humiliation fetish.

My favorite verse is Job 5:7, "But man is born to trouble as the sparks fly upward."

This, I would argue, is the "dirtiest" verse in the Bible, although perhaps "sensual" is a better way to describe it:

Quote from: Song of Solomon 4:16
Awake, north wind, and come, south wind! Blow on my garden, that its fragrance may spread everywhere. Let my beloved come into his garden and taste its choice fruits.

Steamy!

But, I would say this is my favorite:

Quote from: Psalm 23:1-2
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters.

There's also that passage in 1 Samuel about David carrying a warm sack of 200 Philistine foreskins as a dowry for Saul's daughter

I find the poem about the virtous woman in Proverbs 31:10-31 beautiful, but I think my favourite Bible verse is now what comes immediately before. Proverbs 31:9 - "Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy."

Since you didn't post it I had to look up The Message version of this verse

Quote
We, though, are going to love—love and be loved. First we were loved, now we love. He loved us first.

Dear God.

1/10 at most. It's a shame because your first post in this thread was at least fairly ingenious.

The correct answer is Song of Songs.

John Dunstable's setting of Song of Songs 7 is one of the most perfectly-crafted pieces of music that I know of, both gorgeous and quite cheeky. I wrote a movement of a string quartet based on it (in heavily abstracted and dissonant form) a while back.

You are coming close to going on my ignore list.

While the 23rd Psalm isn't awful, it gets so overused that I've specifically told both my pastor and my wife that I don't want it used during my funeral. (Not that I'm expecting to die any time soon.)
