We’re having a contest at Christian Club (my middle school jr. high group) to find obscure, weird, or funny when out of context Bible verses. It will be next week and the kids will be combing the pages of their Bibles looking for their obscure verses. Here are mine so far:
- From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some youths came out of the town and jeered at him. “Go on up, you baldhead!” they said. “Go on up, you baldhead!” He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths. 2 Kings 2:23-24
- Happy is the one who takes your babies and smashes them against the rocks! Psalm 137:9
- The LORD said to me, “Go, show your love to your wife again, though she is loved by another and is an adultress. Love her as the LORD loves the Israelites, though they turn to other gods and love the sacred raisin cakes. Hosea 3:1
