Today we’re featuring some well-used verses, so this file image of a well-used Bible seemed to fit

Readers at our sister blog, Christianity 201 are quite familiar with a website we frequently visit, which features every verse in the Bible by how often it is referenced across the internet, sorted by subject or by Biblical book.

Today we’re looking at E-Books, not eBooks. Sorry to disappoint a few of you! These are the six books that start with the letter E. Note: We did skip a few in the ranking here and there and all selections are quoted here from the NIV. The books are listed alphabetically.

  • Ecclesiastes

3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens

1:11 There is no remembrance of people of old, and even those who are yet to come will not be remembered by those who follow them.

4:9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor

3:4 A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance

12:13 Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of every human being

3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end

  • Ephesians

2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God

4:11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers

2:1 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins

6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ

6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms

2:10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do

  • Esther

4:14 “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?”

1:4 For a full 180 days he displayed the vast wealth of his kingdom and the splendor and glory of his majesty

  • Exodus

3:14 God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.”

1:5 The descendants of Jacob numbered seventy in all; Joseph was already in Egypt

20:8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.”

  • Ezekiel

36:26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.

18:4 For everyone belongs to me, the parent as well as the child – both alike belong to me. The one who sins is the one who will die.

37:1 The hand of the LORD was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones.

18:20 The one who sins is the one who will die. The child will not share the guilt of the parent, nor will the parent share the guilt of the child. The righteousness of the righteous will be credited to them, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against them.

  • Ezra

1:1 In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the LORD spoken by Jeremiah, the LORD moved the heart of Cyrus king of Persia to make a proclamation throughout his realm and also to put it in writing

1:4 “And in any locality where survivors may now be living, the people are to provide them with silver and gold, with goods and livestock, and with freewill offerings for the temple of God in Jerusalem.”

7:10 For Ezra had devoted himself to the study and observance of the Law of the LORD, and to teaching its decrees and laws in Israel.

Now that we’ve got the hang of this; we’ll return at some point with the J-Books. Be sure to check out Top Verses.
