[Check out the 2018 Update: Bible Verses for Blessing Your Home]
Before the drywall was installed in our new home, I decided to mark several of the studs throughout the house with certain Bible verses. Some of these verses have to do with the room and the purpose it will serve and some are more personal. I thought I’d share which verses I used in case anyone else out there is looking for ideas like I was…and also for my own reference since these are all sealed up beneath insulation and drywall now.
You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.
Heart of the Home:
… But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
Remove falsehood and lies far from me; Give me neither poverty nor riches— Feed me with the food allotted to me; Lest I be full and deny You, And say, “Who is the LORD?” Or lest I be poor and steal, And profane the name of my God.
As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
A song of ascents. Of David. How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!
(I forgot to take a picture of the living room wall.)
1 Timothy 4:12
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
(I forgot to take a picture of the master bedroom wall.)
But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
Bedroom for future foster kids:
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”
Playroom (Den, Spare Bedroom):
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music; make music to the LORD with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing, with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn— shout for joy before the LORD, the King.

I love that you have bathed your home in scriptures, and I love the verses you picked! May God fill the house with His very presence and may you have frequent and permanent supernatural “visitors” ( angels, in other words). Love you.
Love this – such perfect verses too!
My wife and I thought about writing scriptures in our new construction home pre-drywall and we were about to do our research when I decided to do a quick google search for some verses. By the grace of God, I found this page and we love each verse you used. Thank you so much for sharing and I hope it makes you feel good to know that you helped this young couple cover our first home with the words of God and all his goodness. God bless!

I am building a new home for me and my two boys. A friend of mine suggested writing scriptures on the floors. I decided to do that in each room of our new home. As a single mother, I need all the blessings I can get. As I googled this morning to start finding scriptures, I ran across yours and it is absolutely perfect! Thanks for sharing and may God bless you in special ways!!
My husband and I are also building a home after fours years of marriage. We had the foundation Blessed and anointed. I too, like others, wanted scriptures within the home. This is such a great idea. I plan to use these in my home as well as scriptures for the pantry and laundry rooms. Love your spirit and home dedications.
Thank you for sharing and may God continue to bless you! In anticipation to having my home built I too was searching for scripture to write on the foundation and frame of this home. Your examples are perfect and I’m so happy to find other brothers and sisters in Christ who knows He’s to be the center of our lives!
God bless you.

This is so wonderful. May God continue to bless you and your family.
Thanks for sharing the verses.My husband and I have just started our house construction with our 3 children. We have decided to build our house out of faith to God that He will help us and bless us so we can finish it soon. God is really the foundation of this house that we are building. I like the verses you shared, and if you won’t mind I will also use these on the foundation and frame of our home. I trust the Lord will bless your entire family for having Him as the center of your lives.

Congratulations for the touching scriptures for blessing a new house. I add more text for the living room from Deuteronomy 6:6-9. God bless you and your home.
These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

We are building our first home and will be doing our frame walkthrough soon! This is exactly what I was looking for and it is soooo helpful! Thanks! God bless!
Wonderful ! I have been praying to God to enable us as afamily to be able to build apartment this year 2015, after dedication of the land and declaration using some scriptures ,i launched for search of scriptures and thats how i landed on our site,wauh and i will use the same while constructing our apartment in September 2015
I love this! When I build a new home I will definitely do the same. Blessings to you and your family!
Thank you for sharing! We are building, too, slowly & after 27 years of marriage (but still children at home.) i love the idea of adding the scriptures to the structure, and I also had already planned to do artwork/signs, etc. in the decor of all rooms. What a great selection of verses to be used both ways!!
Beautiful stuff. . .Will definitely add these to our house as it is being built
It’s a wonderful experience to be guided by the Holy Spirit. I have just completed building my home with 95% of work done, i planed to move in with my family and settled, while the remaining work will continue in the remaining 5%.
While I was searching my mind on how to consacrete my home to YHWH in YESHUA HAMASHIACH, my spirit asked me to searche the Google internet for guidance and surely i found your site which provided me with all that was needed for a perfect dedication of my new home and family to YHWH in YESHUA Hamashiach.
Thankful to you with all my hearth for your blessed thought and contributions.
Such an awesome idea…the whole house is blessed with the Word! Loving this!! Praising Him always!!!
OOOOOH YOUR WORK IS GOOD, I LIKE IT.
MORE GRACE MY DEAR, THE LORD BE WITH YOU.
i shall soon be moving into a new house and was searching for Bible Scriptures to use and voila! yours provided all that i searched for and more. Thank you
So glad I found this! We wanted to do something for us as our home was being built. This inspired us to look for rooms to put our favorite verses in. Thank you for helping us bless our family and home!
My mother did this too. I was telling my friend about this since her house is in the middle of construction. Found your post, and have shared it with her. These Bible verses are PERFECT! Thank you. I would’ve never thought of adding the ones for the closets or bathrooms! God Bless!
This is amazing. I am praying all this over our home. In the name of Jesus.
I put scriptures in every part of our building process… from pouring the foundation to writing on the interior framing… I think I wrote over 75 verses throughout the house…
I thank you for the blessing of the verses for a new home. My God will meet all my needs for it is the desire of my heart. Glory to our God
Wow this is a great idea, writing Bible verses on walls. Thank you for sharing.
