Donald Trump's favorite Bible verse

In 2015, Bloomberg's "With All Due Respect" asked Presbyterian Donald Trump what his favorite Bible verses were.

"I wouldn't want to get into it. Because to me, that's very personal," he said. "The Bible means a lot to me, but I don't want to get into specifics."

When the show's host asked Trump if he favors the Old Testament or the New Testament, he said, "Probably equal. I think it's just incredible," he said.

Last month, Trump decided not to keep his favorite Bible passage a secret any longer when Bob Lonsberry of WHAM 1180 asked him, "Is there a favorite Bible verse or Bible story that has informed your thinking or your character through life?"

"Well, I think many. I mean, you know, when we get into the Bible, I think many. So many," Trump responded.

“And some people — look, an eye for an eye, you can almost say that," he said. "That’s not a particularly nice thing. But you know, if you look at what’s happening to our country, I mean, when you see what’s going on with our country, how people are taking advantage of us, and how they scoff at us and laugh at us. And they laugh at our face, and they’re taking our jobs, they’re taking our money, they’re taking the health of our country. And we have to be firm and have to be very strong. And we can learn a lot from the Bible, that I can tell you."

I wonder if Trump likes Proverbs 16:5: "Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord; be assured, he will not go unpunished."
