9 "verses" that aren't in the Bible

Several popular sayings can put biblical literacy to the test. For example, the phrases below arent in Scripture although some come pretty close:
Money is the root of all evil. (According to 1 Timothy 6:10, the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.) Cleanliness is next to godliness. (The closest teaching to this might be in James 4:8.) God helps those who help themselves. (This proverb originated in ancient Greece, not in Scripture.) God moves in mysterious ways. (A verse kind of like this is Isaiah 55:8.) Spare the rod, spoil the child. (British poet Samuel Butler coined this phrase, which could be a paraphrase of Proverbs 13:24.) This, too, shall pass. (This occurs nowhere in the Bible but has been linked, incorrectly, to King Solomon.) Love the sinner, hate the sin. (St. Augustine originally came up with a version of this phrase.) Charity begins at home. (British theologian John Wycliffe is credited with this saying.) God will never give you more than you can bear. (This seems to be a misinterpretation of 1 Corinthians 10:13.)
