22 Funny Bible Verses and Scriptures

The Bible contains 66 books of religious Christian instructions on how to live our lives piously and faithfully according to the plan and will of God.

But the Bible always seems to take on a serious tone and speaks about the direct consequences of obedience or disobedience of certain commandments and their correlation to prosperity and poverty, sickness and health, as well as life and death.

However, there are still a few chapters and verses in the Holy Bible that may cause even the most serious believer to chuckle because of the comedic context in which the verses were written.

For example, here are 3 funny Bible verses that will give you a lighthearted laugh as you diligently study your Bible today:

Money is Everything?

Bible Verse: Ecclesiastes 10:19

“A feast is made for laughter, wine makes life merry, and money is the answer for everything.”

There are a few sayings about money that we have all come to accept and repeat. One being, “the love of money is the root of all evil,” another stating that “money isn’t everything,” and the infamous Notorious B.I.G. song and catchy lyrics to Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems.

Is it just me or does it sound like this is one of the many funny bible verses out of context and the Bible isn’t necessarily advocating the endless pursuit of money as the ultimate problem-solving tool for every single one of life’s dilemmas?

Sex Joke(s) Verse In The Bible?

“If a man’s testicles are crushed or his penis is cut off, he may not be admitted to the assembly of the Lord.

Deuteronomy 23:1-2 New Living Translation (NLT)

and lusted after their lovers, whose sexual members were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of stallions.

Ezekiel 23:20 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

These 2 Bible verses made me spit out my coffee while reading. While it is true that times, as well as colloquiums, have changed and we are no longer in biblical times, can you imagine being viewed as unholy or unclean for having a circumcised penis? Or reading aloud to a Church congregation a Bible verse that compares a males genitals to that of a horse or donkey? Certainly not with a straight face!

Having Wife Problems? Proverbs 21:9 understands!

Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.

Proverbs 21:9 New International Version (NIV)

Make no mistake, marriage and the holy union is a sacred thing in the Bible. God’s word says that he who has found a wife has found a good thing. Unfortunately, many men know the feeling of wanting to rip their hair straight out of their heads the moment their partner starts going on about something.

Proverbs 21:9 seems to be the ultimate nod in the direction of the husband who has to put up with a constant nagging and bickering spouse. Even the Bible understands sometimes guys!

Finally, timing, location, and context are everything in the Bible. Proverbs and adages are used and many of them often go misunderstood, leaving room for loose interpretation.

During Bible study, you simply can’t just read one verse in hopes to understand the entire chapter. Read the previous as well as the following verses as well to place scriptures in their proper context. But never forget that laughter is good for the soul
