Good bible indeed

As you may or may not already know, I think that Firefly is one of the best TV shows ever to come from the great creative mind that is Joss Whedon. Here's one of my favorite quotes from it:

Saffron: I do know my Bible, sir. "On the night of their betrothal, the wife shall open to the man as the furrow to the plow, and he shall work in her, in and again, till she bring him to his full, and rest him then upon the sweat of her breast."

Mal: Whoa. Good Bible.

Speaking of the bible, or in this case the holy bible;
I'm sorry I don't know the names of the chapters in the bible in English so I'll just say it Norwegian;
I forkynneren 11:6 står dette skrevet;
Så din sæd om morgenen,
og la ikke hånden hvile mot kveld.
Du vet jo ikke hva som vil lykkes,
enten det ene eller det andre,
eller om begge deler er like gode.

What it says is that; you should spread your sperm in the morning, and not let you hand rest towards the night.

The quote in English;

In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening {e} withhold not thy hand: for thou knowest not which shall prosper, either this or {f} that, or whether they both shall be alike good.

(e) Be not weary of well doing.

(f) That is, which of your works are most agreeable to God.
