North Philadelphia native Lil Uzi Vert was performing in Connecticut over the weekend when one particularly moved fan wanted to share some literature with the rapper.

A fan – who clearly thought ahead – tossed a Bible up on stage, missing Uzi by a few feet to his right, a lucky thing because The Good Book is pretty hefty.

Uzi, always looking for new inspiration, decided to pick up the Bible and read a few pages as he continued to perform his breakout song, "XO Tour Llif3."

You can watch the 24-year-old's improv performance below:

The question, of course, is what book Uzi opened to. Maybe a little Deuteronomy? Perhaps a bit of Lamentations?

If nothing else, it's a pretty impressive display of multi-tasking. As fellow rap star Kanye West told us in June, being able to focus on two things at once is always a plus.

Keep doing your thing, Uzi.
