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.
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.)

Then you're really gonna hate me when I tell you I'm specifically requesting that it be used during my funeral. Tongue As a nature enthusiast, it simply wouldn't be proper of me not to!

When I was a Christian, I was partial to Ruth 1:16

Quote
But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.

Only if I were attending your funeral. Since I doubt I'll be there, I don't care enough to hate you for your poor taste in what you want included in your funeral, only disappointed.  Sunglasses

Psalm 2:8-12: Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Matthew 6:5-8: When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites. They love to stand in the synagogues and on the street corners and pray loudly. They want people to see them. The truth is, that’s all the reward they will get. But when you pray, you should go into your room and close the door. Then pray to your Father. He is there in that private place. He can see what is done in private, and he will reward you.

Atm....

Ecclesiastes 12 1:12

Quote
Remember thy Creator
in the days of your youth,
before the days of trouble come
and the years approach when you will say:
“I find no pleasure in them”—
before the sun and the light
and the moon and the stars grow dark,
and the clouds return after the rain;
when the keepers of the house tremble,
and the strong men stoop,
when the grinders cease because they are few,
and those looking through the windows grow dim;
when the doors to the street are closed
and the sound of grinding fades;
when people rise up at the sound of birds,
but all their songs grow faint;
when people are afraid of heights
and of dangers in the streets;
when the almond tree blossoms
and the grasshopper drags itself along
and desire no longer is stirred.
Then people go to their eternal home
and mourners go about the streets.

Remember thy creator in the days of your youth
before the silver cord is severed,
and the golden bowl is broken;
before the pitcher is shattered at the spring,
and the wheel broken at the well,

For then the dust returns to the ground it came from,
and the spirit returns to God who gave it

“Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher.
“Everything is meaningless
