Scarlett Johansson does her best to turn up the sexy while reading a few verses from the Old Testament for Mike O’Brien’s upcoming comedy album, Tasty Radio.

While O’Brien admits on the track it’s a “tough one to make sound sexy,” Johansson is ready for the task of Sexy Bible, emphasizing a breathy, sultry tone as she discusses stoning and a few other “weird” and “specific” rules from Deuteronomy.  

“I wasn’t sure what the comedic take would be when I first became obsessed with Deuteronomy,” O’Brien told Rolling Stone of the project, “but I knew a female should be delivering most of it because a lot of the quotes are very misogynistic and who wants to hear a guy make fun of that. I was so thrilled that Scarlett said she’d do it.”

Tasty Radio officially drops Oct. 30, with other guests including Fred Armisen, Jason Sudeikis, Seth Meyers, Bill Hader, and Vanessa Bayer.
