Favorite creepy/chilling Bible verses?

So, we all talk about what our favorite Bible verses are. What are some of those that just give you the chills?

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour

  • Peter 5:8

Matt 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven.”

This next one scares me to death!

Luke 13:28"In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but yourselves being thrown out.

Revelation 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (666)

What can I say, ever since I saw The Omen this one has freaked me out :eek:

Mathew 5:46-47:

46If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?

I saw this quoted in “The Passion of The Christ” and it had an impact on me. In the movie it was said a little differently, i.e., something like, “Where’s the reward in loving those who already love you?” Maybe it was the way the actor playing Jesus said it, but at the moment it seemed to sum up my view of Christianity.

Matthew 12:36 I tell you, on the day of judgment men will render account for every careless word they utter;

:eek: :crossrc:

sort of creepy in a way

Job 4:12-17
Now a thing was secretly brought to me,
and mine ear received a little thereof.
In thoughts from the visions of the night,
when deep sleep falleth on men,
Fear came upon me, and trembling,
which made all my bones to shake.
Then a spirit passed before my face; :eek:
the hair of my flesh stood up:
It stood still, but I could not discern the form thereof:
an image was before mine eyes, there was silence,
and I heard a voice, saying,
Shall mortal man be more just than God?

poor Eliphaz got spooked

“Let the dead bury the dead”

This saying of Jesus always struck me.

COPLAND and Nita already quoted mine! :frighten:

“Not every one who says to me, Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, `I never knew you; depart from me, you evildoers.’”
Matthew 7:21-23

COPELAND started it, but I feel that the most chilling part follows afterward.

This passage from Judges chapter 19 is the creepiest passage I can think of. It amply illustrates the repeated theme of the latter part of Judges: In that time, there was no king in Israel and every man did what he thought was right.

English Standard Version
[22] As they were making their hearts merry, behold, the men of the city, worthless fellows, surrounded the house, beating on the door. And they said to the old man, the master of the house, Bring out the man who came into your house, that we may know him. [23] And the man, the master of the house, went out to them and said to them, No, my brothers, do not act so wickedly; since this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing. [24] Behold, here are my virgin daughter and his concubine. Let me bring them out now. Violate them and do with them what seems good to you, but against this man do not do this outrageous thing. [25] But the men would not listen to him. So the man seized his concubine and made her go out to them. And they knew her and abused her all night until the morning. And as the dawn began to break, they let her go. [26] And as morning appeared, the woman came and fell down at the door of the man’s house where her master was, until it was light.

[27] And her master rose up in the morning, and when he opened the doors of the house and went out to go on his way, behold, there was his concubine lying at the door of the house, with her hands on the threshold. [28] He said to her, Get up, let us be going. But there was no answer. Then he put her on the donkey, and the man rose up and went away to his home. [29] And when he entered his house, he took a knife, and taking hold of his concubine he divided her, limb by limb, into twelve pieces, and sent her throughout all the territory of Israel.

Rev 2:10 - Do not be afraid of anything that you are going to suffer. Indeed, the devil will throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will face an ordeal for ten days. Remain faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.
