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.
I read my Bible every day. I read a section of the Old Testament, the New Testament, Psalms & Proverbs. I joined Facebook back yonder on the 24th of October 2009. I have posted below many verses that have “stuck out” to me while doing this reading on my Facebook page.
I would like to make Bible verse posters and desktop backgrounds out of many of these over the coming months using pictures I have taken over the years. Here is a collection of the 88 verses I have posted to date, they are in no particular order:
“In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened.” – George Washington
“Enlightened statesmen will not always be at the helm.” – James Madison, Federalist No. 10
“We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism.”
– Soviet Leader Nikita Khrushchev, 1959
“The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.”
“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was and will never be.”
“A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government.”
