    Can you all list a few favorite parts of the Bible text?

    For me personally, John 3:16 is "the one" because I was saved on March 16 (3/16). That is not a coincidence; God does care about numbers.

    Isaiah 8:11-18: "11 For the Lord spake thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying, 12 Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid. 13 Sanctify the Lord of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. 14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken. 16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples. 17 And I will wait upon the Lord, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him. 18 Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion."

    Isaiah 40:26-31: "26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth. 27 Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God? 28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. 29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. 30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

    Joseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough by a spring; his branches run over the wall.

    The archers bitterly attacked him, shot at him, and harassed him severely, yet his bow remained unmoved; his arms were made agile by the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob (from there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel),

    by the God of your father who will help you, by the Almighty who will bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that crouches beneath, blessings of the breasts and of the womb.

    The blessings of your father are mighty beyond the blessings of my parents, up to the bounties of the everlasting hills. May they be on the head of Joseph, and on the brow of him who was set apart from his brothers.
    Genesis 49:22-26

    Daniel 9:
    13“I kept looking in the night visions,
    And behold, with the clouds of heaven
    One like a Son of Man was coming,
    And He came up to the Ancient of Days
    And was presented before Him.

    14“And to Him was given dominion,
    Glory and a kingdom,
    That all the peoples, nations and men of every language
    Might serve Him.
    His dominion is an everlasting dominion
    Which will not pass away;
    And His kingdom is one
    Which will not be destroyed.

    I love a translation of Jeremiah 33:3 in spanish. Translated to english it says: Call me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things you IGNORE.

    When I read it the first time it gave me the revelation that revelation sometimes is in front of our faces but we are oblivious to it.

    John 20:26-29
    And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.

    27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

    28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

    29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

    Psalms 90:1-2

    Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
    Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

    "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not." (John 1:1-5).

    "And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him." (1 John 2:3-5).

    “Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only." (James 2:24).

And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.” (Luke 10:25-28).

    "The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever." (Psalms 23:1-6).

    "The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward" (Psalms 19:7-11).

    "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." (Revelation 22:4).

    Here is something I put together (that I like) as an introduction to Genesis 1:

    From everlasting to everlasting, thou art God (Psalms 90:2).

    One God (1 Timothy 2:5).

    None else beside him. (Deuteronomy 4:35).

    The true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king (Jeremiah 10:10)

    For God is the King (Psalms 47:7).

    God is love (1 John 4:8)

    God is Spirit (John 4:24).

    God is Light and in Him is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5).

    For the LORD is good; (Psalms 100:5).

    Holy, is the LORD (Isaiah 6:3).

    The Almighty, ... excellent in power, and in judgment, .... (Job 37:23)

    He is mighty in strength and wisdom. (Job 36:5)

    His understanding is infinite. (Psalms 147:5).

    The LORD is righteous in all his ways (Psalms 145:17).

    He is the Rock, his work is perfect: ... a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he (Deuteronomy 32:4).

    In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth (Genesis 1:1)

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God (John 1:1). For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. (1 John 5:7)

    All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made (John 1:3)

    For this God is our God for ever and ever: (Psalms 48:14)

    Hi @ChristianForCats, this is one of my very favorites.

    PSALM 103


    Praise for the LORD’S Mercies.


    A Psalm of David.

    1 Bless the LORD, O my soul,
    And all that is within me, bless His holy name.
    2 Bless the LORD, O my soul,
    And forget none of His benefits;
    3 Who pardons all your iniquities,
    Who heals all your diseases;
    4 Who redeems your life from the pit,
    Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
    5 Who satisfies your years with good things,
    So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.

    6 The LORD performs righteous deeds
    And judgments for all who are oppressed.
    7 He made known His ways to Moses,
    His acts to the sons of Israel.
    8 The LORD is compassionate and gracious,
    Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.
    9 He will not always strive with us,
    Nor will He keep His anger forever.
    10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
    Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
    11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
    So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him.
    12 As far as the east is from the west,
    So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
    13 Just as a father has compassion on his children,
    So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.
    14 For He Himself knows our frame;
    He is mindful that we are but dust.

    15 As for man, his days are like grass;
    As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
    16 When the wind has passed over it, it is no more,
    And its place acknowledges it no longer.
    17 But the lovingkindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him,
    And His righteousness to children’s children,
    18 To those who keep His covenant
    And remember His precepts to do them.

    19 The LORD has established His throne in the heavens,
    And His bsovereignty rules over all.
    20 Bless the LORD, you His angels,
    Mighty in strength, who perform His word,
    Obeying the voice of His word!
    21 Bless the LORD, all you His hosts,
    You who serve Him, doing His will.
    22 Bless the LORD, all you works of His,
    In all places of His dominion;
    Bless the LORD, O my soul!​

    --David

    Lamentations 3
    22 The LORD’S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
    For His compassions never fail.
    23 They are new every morning;
    Great is Thy faithfulness.
