Religious Limericks

I'm reading Robin Ince's Bad Book Club, and I was amused to discover somebody has rewritten the Bible in limerick form. Except for Leviticus and Revelation. So:
There are some things you ought not to do,
Like sleep with men, or get a tattoo.
(These things might have hurt
When you're in a desert
But are they relevant now to you?)
Well, that was godawful, and at the same time, lacking the commitment to utter intolerance that part of Leviticus seems to involve. I wonder what the actual version is like. Or if I should have another go, but this time trying to jam "Whore of Babylon" into an AABBA rhyme scheme.
