The Bible contains Gods words, written out of inspiration by the Holy Spirit and transferred from one generation to another for the benefit of humanity. Though the Bible remains one of the oldest books still in existence, it addresses both the past, the present, and the future. It will be a little bit hard to make a list of best bible verses because all the scriptures and verses in the bible talk about different things that are all very important and none can be taken for granted. The shortest and seemly most insignificant verse in the Bible has something important to say as these are not mere words of men but words written out of an inspiration by the Holy Spirit. Nevertheless, we’ve gone through the scriptures to pick out what we consider the best Bible verses. There are about 160 of them and we hope you’ll find them inspiring.
