YouVersion is an incredibly popular Bible app, now downloaded on more than 200 million phones and devices worldwide. According to them, the most popular verse in the Bible is not what you expect.

One might think John 3:16—"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him would not perish, but have everlasting life."

Or Psalm 23:1—"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want."

Or out of the book of 1 John—"God is love."

According to YouVersion, the verse that was bookmarked, shared, and highlighted more than any other in the app's history was also the top verse for the US and Brazil in 2015.

The verse? Romans 12:2, which reads "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—His good, pleasing, and perfect will."
