    I can't think of it off the top of my head, but it's the one about Onan spilling his seed. It inspired porn many centuries later.

    Genesis 38:8-10 So Judah told Onan, "Go and sleep with your brother's widow; it's the duty of a brother-in-law to keep your brother's line alive." But Onan knew that the child wouldn't be his, so whenever he slept with his brother's widow he spilled his semen on the ground so he wouldn't produce a child for his brother. God was much offended by what he did and also took his life. MSG

    I like Psalm 14:1 which says

    There is no God.

    I use the NWT because I like the way it words it.

    Ecclesiastes 12:13: The conclusion of the matter, everything having been heard, is: Fear the [true] God and keep his commandments. For this is the whole [obligation] of man.

    For obvious JW reasons I've also come to truly appreciate Ephesians 2:8,9: By this undeserved kindness, indeed, YOU have been saved through faith; and this not owing to YOU , it is God’s gift. No, it is not owing to works, in order that no man should have ground for boasting.
