Chapter 4, Verse 8

I shared with you a while back that I was doing a study of all the Chapter 4, verse 8's in the books of the Bible. I wrote them all down in a journal, chronologically, to see if there was any continuity or flow. Although I found there was none, it turned out to be a good lesson in scripture writing, never a bad thing in and of itself, and it was fun.
I did find more verses that have become my favorites.
My all time favorites have been Philippians 4:8 and Psalm 4:8, and I have now added:

Job 4:8  As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it.

Proverbs 4:8  Cherish her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.

Luke 4:8  Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.' "

Romans 4:8  "Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them."

2 Corinthians 4:8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

James 4:8  Come near to God and He will come near to you...

1Peter 4:8  Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

1John 4:8  Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

I hope you find comfort in some of these as I have.

Leave me comment of your favorite Bible verse. It does not have to be a 4:8 verse.

  1. I have more than one favorite Bible verse and they tend to change over time. :-) Here are two:

    Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

    Micah 6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

    1. Thank you for stopping by, Mary and for your comment. I used to have Isaiah 41:10 on the top of the page here. That has always been one of my favs and still is to this day.
