The verse states, “Your breasts are like two fawns, like twin fawns of a gazelle that browse among the lilies.”  Following this weird description, one user says, “He had a thousand wives and about 400 of those were inherited from his father.”

Numbers 12:3

It reads, “Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.” But did you know this verse was actually “written by Moses?”

Deuteronomy 25:11-12

This verse states, “If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private pants, you shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity.” This doesn’t sit well with some users. One points out, “I hate this.”

Genesis 27:11

It says, “And Jacob said to Rebekah, his mother, ‘Behold, my brother Esau is a hairy man, but I have smooth skin.'” So much for the “smooth heel-grabber” who stole his brother’s birthright. “Jacob is a smooth criminal,” writes a user. 

Ezekiel 23:20 NIV

In Ezekiel 23:20, it’s mentioned that “she lusted after her lovers” and compares private parts with “those of donkeys.”

2 Kings 2:23-25

The verses document how some small boys jeered at Elisha, “He (Elisha) turned around, looked at them and called a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys.”

All this “because the boys made fun of him for being bald?” That was uncalled for.

Judges 15:16

In Judges 15:16, the verse is about Samson, who uses a donkey’s jawbone to defeat the enemies.

Ezekiel 16:26

It turns out, “Ancient Greeks saw large penises as a symbol of barbarism and animalistic property. Old statues of Greek gods have small shlongs as they are wise and civilized,” clarifies a poster.     

Proverbs 27:14

Consider this: “Whoever blesses his neighbor with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it shall be counted as a curse to him.” What? But one commentator says, “Praising someone’s good qualities when people are beginning their days in a way everyone can hear can cause a whole bunch of people to try to take advantage of that guy.”

Mark 14:51-52

“And a certain young man followed him, wearing nothing but a linen cloth, and they seized him but left the linen cloth and ran away naked.”

“Basically, some dude got arrested along with Jesus and ran away naked, but nobody’s really sure who exactly the dude was and why he was even brought up in the first place?” wonders a reader. 

Zechariah 14:12-13

These verses feel like the “zombie apocalypse.” Verse 12, in part, says, “Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.”

One user, however, feels the plaque “sounds like Ebola.”

Deuteronomy 23:12-14

This bible verse talks about sanitation. It reads, “You must have a designated area outside the camp where you can go relieve yourself…. The camp must be holy for your Lord moves around in your camp…”

This verse reads, “It’s better to live alone in the desert than with a quarrelsome, complaining wife.”  “(We) can’t dispute that one,” reads a post.
