World News – Philippians top book

The Apostle Paul’s letter to the Philippians contained three of the top 10 Bible verses that were most bookmarked, highlighted, and shared with YouVersion’s Bible app in 2014, according to an end-of-year analysis.

Paul also had the number one verse, Romans 12:2, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (NIV). But the fourth chapter of Philippians took No. 2 with verse 8, No. 3 with verse 6, and No. 6 with verse 7.

The Top 10 was Romans 12:2, Philippians 4:8, Philippians 4:6, Jeremiah 29:11, Matthew 6:33, Philippians 4:7, Proverbs 3:5, Isaiah 41:10, Matthew 6:34 and Proverbs 3:6

These verses, and others, were shared nearly 69 million times this year. In fact, every second sees two verses shared through Twitter, Facebook, text messages, and email around the world, YouVersion said.

Philippians 4:6 was the only verse to stay on the top five from last year’s list, which featured Philippians 4:13 “I can do all this through him who gives me strength” in top spot, followed by Isaiah 40:31, Matthew 6:13, and Joshua 1:9.
