Thanks for stopping by! We want to share 150 of the Most Popular Bible Verses. While these are in no particular order, we selected them based on what we’ve heard quoted the most and what most Christians use in prayer.
See how many of these you know! As a way to test your bible knowledge, see if you can quote at least 10 scriptures before reading these. This would be a great challenge for you, your friends and family as well
I’m sure while you may disagree with the order on some of these, we will all agree that the #1 spot, is indeed the most famous bible verse! Even non believers know this one!
We started out looking for these in version of the bible which most people use when quoting the scripture. What was interesting is that most scriptures are quoted in King James Version (KJV), New King James Version (NKJV) and fewer in the New International Version (NIV). Why do you think that is? Is it that the older generation paid more attention to scripture memorization? Do you quote scriptures using the Amplified Version? There are so many newer versions of the bible available today that it does cause one to wonder what do we do when it comes to scripture memorization? Older Versions or Newer Versions?
If your favorite is not on the list, let us know and we’ll add it.

If you enjoyed these share it with your friends. This would make a good game for a party! Round Robin style see which team can quote the most scripture. If your group gets stuck, then call out the name of a book in the bible and that will get the ball rolling again. For example if you say “Romans” you will remember more scriptures from the book of Romans than just trying to remember a random scripture from the entire bible.
