Famous or well-known sayings from the Bible

     The English language (as well as other languages) has been full of phrases and proverbs from the Bible.

     "Cleanliness is next to godliness" is not one of biblical origin. Neither is "God helps those who help themselves." That one is from Poor Richard's Almanac.

     Here is a listing of oft-used phrases which do come from Holy Scripture.
