A random look at the Bible

I learned about bibliomancy from watching the movie Running With Scissors. It pretty much is the practice of selecting a Bible verse at random and deriving divine guidance from it for whatever question you may have.

So I thought it could be fun to try a regular installment of a random verse from Word of God. Today's installment comes from Psalm 68:12

"Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that tarried at home divided the spoil"

So does this mean God is telling me to stay home and blow off work tomorrow? Sweet.

I can see how Biblical Literalists have a good time cherry picking verses in isolation and out of context in order confirm their preexisting prejudices and predilections now.
