Several times, I have actually heard a phrase alengthy the lines of "It is better to plant thy seed in the belly of a whore than to be actors upon the ground."

Is tright here a biblical reference for this phrase? I can"t uncover it in the protestant Scriptures...

You are watching: It is better to put your seed in the belly



Tbelow is no such verse in the Bible. The recommendation to spilling one"s seed on the ground comes from Genesis 38:9 NASB:

Onan kbrand-new that the offspring would certainly not be his; so as soon as he went in to his brother"s wife, he wasted his seed on the ground in order not offer offspring to his brother.

From right here.

There"s a fuller explanation from the website I attached to too.

This is generally a saying that comes up in reference to masturbation. That"s not really what the verse is talking around, yet that subject has actually been discussed on this website right here.
