The Top 4 Bible Verses People Are Searching For After Las Vegas Attack

When tragedy strikes, it is only natural to seek comfort and strength in the word of the Lord. But do you ever wonder what verses people are searching for after an event of such brutal magnitude as the shooting in Las Vegas? Bible Gateway, the Bible Study website which garners over 150 million hits every year, has released the four most-searched Bible verses in the wake of this tragedy. 

1. John 16:33: “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

2. Psalm 34:18: “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

3. Romans 12:19: “Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord.”

4. Psalm 11:5 “The Lord examines the righteous, but the wicked, those who love violence, he hates with a passion.”

It gives us an interesting insight into the heart and minds of those who are still struggling to come to terms with this horrific incident. Many want to be reminded that the Lord is sovereign over all these things, and further that he will have vengeance and will hand out ultimate justice for these acts. 

Despite the uncertainty of today, and the horrific violence that so often engulfs our world, we can know that the Lord will one day enact complete and perfect justice, and every tear will be wiped away.
