- "And God spoke these words:I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall take no other gods before me."
- —Exodus 20:1-3, NIV
The Bible is the holy text of Christianity, and an important part of Tau'ri culture. Captain Jonas Hanson had carried a Bible with him for years, looking for God, but after arriving on Avnil and enslaving it's people, he used the wisdom in the Bible to convince them that he was their god. Teal'c read it to gain a better understanding of Earth. Colonel Jack O'Neill decided to hear it on tape. (SG1: "Demons")
- "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, we shall not fear. Though the earth be removed. Though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea. Though its waters roar and be troubled. Though the mountains shake at the swelling thereof. There is a river, the streams whereof make glad the city of God… the holy habitation of the Most High." (Psalm 46:1-4)
