I remember a guest preacher telling us that the shortest verse in the Bible was not "Jesus wept" as is commonly believed. He said that in the original language, there was an even shorter verse -- possibly a single-word verse?

Edakrusen ho Iesous, “Jesus wept” (John 11:35) is the shortest verse in most English Bibles, But in the Greek N.T., I believe the shortest is Luke 20:30 ("and the second," kai ho deuteros, which in Greek is 12 letters).

This is followed by 1 Thessalonians 5:16, Pantote chairete (always rejoice). In Greek this is fourteen letters in two words. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 is also two words in Greek, but in twenty-two letters.

"Remember Lot's wife" (Luke 17:32) is another memorably short N.T. verse.

In the Hebrew O.T., I think it is 1 Chronicles 1:25, "Eber, Peleg, Reu" ('br, plg, r'u) which in the original language is nine letters in three words.
