Nancy Pelosi’s Favorite Bible Quote is Not in the Bible
During a speech last week at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi quoted her favorite Bible verse.
Only, there’s one problem: the quote is not actually in the Good Book.
In her opening statement, Pelosi said, “To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.”
She admitted, though, that she was unable to find the verse in the Bible. “I quote it all the time. And I keep reading and reading the Bible. I know it’s there someplace. It’s supposed to be in Isaiah,” she said.
According to the Blaze, the Biblical quote most closely aligned with Pelosi’s alleged quote is found in Proverbs.
Will Kynes, an associate professor of Hebrew Bible at Whitworth University, told Slate the closest biblical analog to Pelosi’s quote is found in Proverbs 14:31, a book of the Bible known as being part of the Wisdom Literature. “Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God,” the verse declares.
