My Top 10 Hunting Scriptures

Ok, many people think hunting is cruel or shouldn’t be done but the bible says otherwise.  God gave us all animals for our pleasure and for food.  You should respect the animals that you hunt and enjoy them for all the reasons God gave them to us. Here are 10 of my favorite scriptures:

  1. Gen 27:3- Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
  2. Gen 27:7-Bring me venison, and make me savoury meat, that I may eat, and bless thee before the LORD before my death
  3. Gen 27:5-And Rebekah heard when Isaac spake to Esau his son.  And Esau went to the field to hunt for venison, and to bring it.
  4. Proverbs 12:27-The slothful man roasteth not that which he took hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.
  5. Gen 9:3-Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things
  6. Acts 10:10-16- and he became very hungry and would have eaten; but while they made ready, he fell into a trance and saw heaven opened and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners,  and let down to the earth.Wherein were all manner four-footed beasts of the earth, wild beasts, creeping things, and fowls of the air. And there came a voice to him, “Rise, Peter; kill and eat.” But Peter said, “Not so, Lord! For I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean.” And a voice spake unto him again the second time, “What God has cleansed, that call not thou common.”  This was done thrice:  And the vessel was received up again into heaven.
  7. Gen 10:9-He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: where for it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.
  8. Psa 124:7- Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the Fowler: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
  9. 1Sa 26:20 Now therefore, let not my blood fall to the earth before the face of the LORD: for the king of Israel is come out to seek a flea, as when one doth hunt a partridge in the mountains.
  10. Pro 6:5 Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand [of the hunter], and as a bird from the hand of the Fowler.

I hope you got something out of this, maybe dig deeper and see what you can find.  Not only for hunting but for yourself.  There are many lessons to be learned as the bible is the inexhaustible word of life.  Just when you think you got it God will show you something else. Take care!! If you like post your thoughts or even more of your favorite scriptures.
