DMX Spitting Bible Verses on the Street

Wanna hear bible verses on the street corner? X gon' give it to ya ... and we've got the video proof.

DMX got downright religious outside of the Wi Jammin' Restaurant in L.A. recently ... and we're told it all started when X ran into a fan who told him she was going through hard times.

The rapper instantly sprang into action to help out -- and whipped out his bible to read her some passages. We'd tell you which ones ... but we're not really sure.

DMX talks really, really, really fast.
