In this article we will tickle your funny bone with these funny Bible verses and Scriptures. It’s amazing what humours verses we can find when we dig into the Bible.
Now, the Word of God is nothing to laugh at but there are some verses that can make you chuckle. I know for me I have run into some funny Bible verses while reading the Bible.
When it comes to silly bible verses one of my fondest memories was when a guest speaker came to our ministry class. And he said I love funny Bible verses like Job 10:10…
“Did you not pour me out like milk and curdle me like cheese”
This just tickled me pink and to this day sometimes I will sometimes write on a little piece of paper at church…”A word for you…Job 10:10″ and pass it to a friend. They open it up, grab their Bibles and laugh.
They, of course, know I am playing with them and find the verse funny.
A QUICK NOTE ON WHAT MAKES A BIBLE VERSE FUNNY
Personality: Everyone’s personality is different. What I think is funny may not be funny to you or vice versa.
Context: A lot of funny verses make you think, “uhhh what?!” and that’s what makes them funny. We either don’t understand the whole context or we are reading the verse stand alone.
Translation: A certain translation can make or break a funny verse. Reading something in NIV may not be funny at all but in NAS or KJV it just might be! So, I will put the translation next to the verse.
You can find all the translations at Bible Gateway.

Lady who has a Bible Verse for Every Situation
Ok, so I have to throw this in here cause I love Christian comedian John Crist and think his videos are hilarious. He had a handful of ones called “Bible Verse Lady…” He basically acts like a lady who uses bible verses out of context while shopping or visiting places.
I thought it would be a fun add since we are talking about funny Bible verses and he’s making them funny.
I hope you have enjoyed this post and that it has put a smile on your face. Also, if there is a verse you find funny that’s not listed…drop it below in the comments.
