What’s The Funniest Verse In The Bible?

What verse in the Bible do you find most amusing? It doesn’t have to be intended to be amusing – no need to restrict the question in that way. I’m just asking what verse you find most amusing, humorous or entertaining.

For me, for a long time it has been Hebrews 13:22, where, at the end of thirteen chapters of some of the densest and most complex theological discourse in the whole Bible, the author says “Brothers, I urge you to bear with my word of exhortation, for I have written you only a short letter.” This guy cracks me up.

Which verse would you pick? Tell me by leaving a comment!

    I don’t know if this is exactly funny, but 1 Corinthians 14:38 could serve as the motto of creationism: “But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.”
