Craigslist Whitetext Mystery

What are the mysterious, apparently non-sensical, religious-sounding words that are appearing as small white text on white background on Craigslist car+truck ads across several cities?

A friend orginally found them on Vancouver's Craigslist, but I've also found them in Seattle and SF-Bay Area.
Go to Craigslist Cars + Trucks section. Search for "revenge" (although some other words would also probably yield good hits) in entire posting. Some listings should come up (they've been dealer listings I've noticed so far). Click on the listing and search the page for "revenge" and you'll see it's part of a larger string of white on white small text along the lines of:
"of Mighty put Fortune chickens do Fish wings out boy victor Give forward merry,. dead to pitchers man Comparisons be author, by tide do better Talk can't son. go eat makes watched pans, the kingdom what a we You due better in.
sometimes the worth Do your has without picture is. A a Good. can baby Only showers does Revenge judge.
