These verses are in QURAN (The Holy Book) about  bees and honey:

Surah (Chapter) 16. The Bee

Verse:68. And thy Lord taught the Bee to build its cells in hills, on trees,
and in (men's) habitations;

Verse:69. Then to eat of all the produce (of the earth), and find with skill
the spacious paths of its Lord: there issues from within their bodies a
drink of varying colours, wherein is healing for men: verily in this is a
Sign for those who give thought.

Surah (Chapter) 47. Muhammad

Verse:15 (Here is) a Parable of the Garden which the righteous are promised:
in it are rivers of water incorruptible; rivers of milk of which the taste
never changes; rivers of wine, a joy to those who drink; and rivers of honey
pure and clear. In it there are for them all kinds of fruits; and Grace from
their Lord. (Can those in such Bliss) be compared to such as shall dwell for
ever in the Fire, and be given, to drink, boiling water, so that it cuts up
their bowels (to pieces)?
