This closed question asks for a 'favorite pasuk', presupposing that such a thing is allowed.
When it comes to sugyos or sections/topics of Torah, Chazal say on the one hand, (Eiruvin 64a) that a person may not say that 'one section of the Torah is nice, and another is not nice', but on the other hand it seems permissible to enjoy one section more than the other, as we are advised that a person learns best from a topic that he enjoys the most (Avodah Zara 19a). Does this mean that a person can privately be drawn to a particular section, but not express it, or only express it in the form of a subjective opinion?
By saying, 'sugya X is great', one is implying that sugya Y is less great, and that would seem to be prohibited. However, Chazal appear to have done that themselves, as they would refer to certain topics as 'great sugyos' (ex: Bava Kama 20a). Is that allowed?
Furthermore, whatever the law is by sugyos, does it apply equally to pesukim? Perhaps one cannot say that he likes a particular pasuk more, as it implies that one pasuk is more important than another (against what the Rambam writes in Foundation 8 of his famous 13)?
I've seen this issue discussed, so I feel justified in asking for only sourced answers, please.
