Matthew 6.6  And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. Truly I tell you, they already have their reward.  But when you pray, go into your inner room, shut your door, and pray to your Father,who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

If I had to chose it would be Philippians 2:3-4Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

Even in my unequivocal atheism, I can recite Proverbs 2:10-12 "When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee; To deliver thee from the way of the evil man."

Yeah---believer or non-believer, there is a bunch of truth and common sense in there that we can all agree on.

Indeed there is, Tom.
Its not all folklore and smiting. I happen to be a fan of the last seven commandments.
To invoke Mark Twain, " ... some noble poetry, a wealth of obscenity and upwards of a thousand lies." To be fair, I doubt there is actually a running count.

My father's favourite verse -- in fact, it was probably the only one he knew -- was one he used as an expletive. John 11:35: "Jesus wept!"

But I like Acts 26:14 (KJV):  "it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks." (We've all had to cope with a few of those.)

Of course, if you want me to be serious, it's hard to go past Paul's comment in Philippians 4:11. If youmake this your guiding principal, you're almost guaranteed the ability to find the best possible life for yourself. "I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content."

"1. In the Lord's benevolence and radiance I am so perfectly gay! His smile is a rainbow across the bright sky, beaming with pride and love. His power touches me deep inside, and for that I cry out with glee like the ever-faithful gaylord that I am! Pray that every day could be this gay, hallelujah! 2. This moment of reflection is brought unto thee by the adverb 'flamboyantly.'" -Adverbs 8:1-2

Ezekiel 25:17

“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.”

Made for a great theatrical performance (AT BEST) when delivered by Samuel L Jackson in "Pulp Fiction".
