We all quote the popular ones, Psalms, Proverbs, Matthew, Luke, Revelation.
These are some of every Christian's 'go to books' for a proper debate.

When is the last time you saw someone quote or post from Nahum?......or Titus?
They are obviously there in the Bible for a reason, but do we look through them often enough?

What's your favorite verse from an 'unpopular' book?
Why?

Maybe you don't know.....because like me, you may not read them often enough to have one?

We know His love, which is awesome, but unfortunately for some, God does have another side.
Yes,
Nahum 1:2-3

Malakyah 3:16, "Then those who reverenced Yahweh spoke often one to another, and Yahweh paid attention and heard them; and a Book of Remembrance was written in His presence of those who gave reverence to Yahweh, and who thought upon, His Name."

On my last post, I have to add...that's not one of my favorites.
Can't change the thread title though. :mad:

Micah 6:8 comes to mind.
New American Standard Bible
He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God?

King James Bible
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?

What's your favorite verse from an 'unpopular' book?

by 'unpopular' i am not sure what you mean,
so i will guess you mean "Leviticus, Numbers and the minor prophets" ;)

this is good too - there is so much good!


For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
as the waters cover the sea.

(Habakkuk 2:14)

Yeah, I had a hard time trying to figure out how to word that.

The rest of the post explains/asks which is a favorite quote that is "unpopular" to use in a debate, or when we go to comfort others with scripture.
Not so much saying "not liked" I guess.

....we never know which verses from any of the books may inspire others, so I was wondering which verses to some (although unpopular) do just that.

Still can't word this right.:(:mad:

This is my all time favorite that is not mega popular:


Deuteronomy 18:18-19, "I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brothers, and I will put My words in His mouth, and He will tell them everything I command Him. Whoever will not listen to My words, which He speaks in My Name, I will judge him for it"

"listen" is word #8085 שָׁמַע shama` {shaw-mah'}

Brown-Driver-Briggs (Old Testament Hebrew-English Lexicon)
A primitive root; to hear intelligently (often with implication of attention, obedience, etc.; causatively to tell, etc.)

Hebrew Word Study (Transliteration-Pronunciation Etymology & Grammar) - 1) to hear, listen to, obey

Joshua 24:15, "But fit seems evil to you to serve Yahweh, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve--whether the gods your fathers served on the other side of the River; Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you now live; BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE: WE WILL SERVE YAHWEH!"
