LAWS

1 Timothy 1;5 “Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned.� 3


1 Timothy 1;9,10 “We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers,” 10 “for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine.” Titus 1;15 “To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted.” 1 Corinthians 6;12 “All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not profitable. I may do all things, but I will not be brought under the power of anything.” Galatians 5;13 “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.” Romans 6;1,2 “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?” 2 “God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” Galatians 2;16,18,19 “Know that a man is not justified by the works of the Law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we, I say, have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the Law, because that by the works of the Law, no flesh shall be justified.” 18 “For if I build again the things that I have destroyed, I make myself a trespasser.” 19 “For I through the Law am dead to the Law, that I might live unto God.” Matthew 12;31 “Wherefore I say unto you, every sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.” Hebrews 10;26 “For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins”. James 2;10 “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” John 8;34 “Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.” Ecclesiastes 8;11 “Because the sentence against an evil deed is not executed speedily, the heart of the children of man is fully set to do evil.” 1 John 3;18 “Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.”

Micah 6;8 “He hath showed thee, O man, what is good, and what the Lord require of thee: surely to do justly, and to love mercy, and to humble thyself, to walk with thy God.” Matthew 20;26,27 “But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your servant.” 27 “And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant.” 1 Corinthians 4;20 “For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power.” Matthew 7;12 “Therefore whatsoever ye would that men should do to you: even so do ye to them: for this is the Law and the Prophets.” Romans 13;10 “Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.” Galatians 5;22,23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,” 23 “Meekness, temperancy: against such there is no law.” 1 Corinthians 10;24 “Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor.” Genesis 4;7 “f thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.” Matthew 5;29 “Wherefore if thy right eye cause thee to offend, pluck it out and cast it from thee: for better it is for thee, that one of thy members perish, than that thy whole body should be cast into hell.” Matthew 5;39 “But I say unto you, Resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.” Romans 12;21 “Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with goodness.” Romans 15;1 “We which are strong, ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.” James 4;17 “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” Romans 14;12 “So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” Luke 12;57 “Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?” 1 Corinthians 11;31 “For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.” Romans 2;15 “They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them.”

2 Corinthians 5;10 “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.” Mark 4;24 “And he said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you.” Matthew 18; 33,35 “Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?” 35” So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.” Exodus 20; 3 a 17. 3 “You shall have no other gods before me.” 4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.” 5 “You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,” 6 “but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.” 7 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.” 8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.” 9 “Six days you shall labor, and do all your work,” 10 “but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates.” 11 “For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.” 12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.” 13 “You shall not murder.” 14 “You shall not commit adultery.” 15 “You shall not steal.” 16 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” 17 “You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's.” John 14;21 “Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” 1 John 2;4 “Whoever says, “I have come to know him,” but does not obey his commandments, is a liar, and in such a person the truth does not exist;” 1 John 5;2,3 “By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments.” 3 “For the love of God is this, that we obey his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.”

John 15;12,13,14 “This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.” 13 “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” 14 “Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.” Matthew 22;37,38,39,40 “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” 38 “This is the first and great commandment.” 39 “And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”40 “On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” John 5;39 “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” John 8;31 “So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him: If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples;” James 2;14,19 “What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him?” 19 “You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe, and shudder!” James 2; 21,22,23,24 “Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar?” 22 “You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works;” 23 “and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness” and he was called a friend of God.” 24 “You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone.” Romans 3;31 “Do we then nullify the Law through faith? May it never be! On the contrary, we establish the Law.” Matthew 5;17 “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill.” Matthew 7;21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.” 1 Peter 2;15 “For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men.” Galatians 5;22,23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,” 23 “Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” 1 Corinthians 9;21 “To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.” Mark 7;18,19,20,21,22,23 “And he said to them, “Then are you also without understanding? Do you not see that whatever goes into a person from outside cannot defile 7


him,” 19 “since it enters not his heart but his stomach, and is expelled?” 20 “And he said: What comes out of a person is what defiles him.” 21 “For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery”, 22 “coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness.” 23 “All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.” Acts 10;15 “And the voice came to him again a second time, “What God has made clean, do not call common.” Romans 14;17,18,19 “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” 18 “Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men.” 19 “So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.” Colossians 2;16,18 “Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day” 18 “Let no one keep defrauding you of your prize by delighting in self-abasement and the worship of the angels, taking his stand on visions he has seen, inflated without cause by his fleshly mind.” 1 John 3;9,10 “No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.” 10 “By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.” Proverbs 28;9 “He who turns away his ear from listening to the law, Even his prayer is an abomination..” Psalm 50; 16,17 “But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?” 17 “Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee.” Romans 1;25 “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amem.” Matthew 15;3 “But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?” John 12;48 “The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day.” Romans 3;5 “But if our unrighteousness serves to show the righteousness of God, what shall we say? That God is unrighteous to inflict wrath on us?” Matthew 18;6 “but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.” 8


2 Corinthians 6;3,10 “We put no obstacle in anyone's way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry” 10 “as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, yet possessing everything.” Luke 6;40 “A pupil is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be like his teacher.” Hebrews 5:12,13,14 “For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food.” 13 “For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant.” 14 “But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.”

fear

Psalm 62;11 “God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.�

10


Proverbs 19;23 “The fear of the Lord tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.” Psalm 34;9 “O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.” John 9;31 “Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.” Proverbs 22;4 “The reward of humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, honor and life.” Proverbs 14;26 “In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence, And his children will have refuge.” Psalm 111;10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever.” Proverbs 1;7 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Proverbs 15;33 “The fear of the Lord is the instruction for wisdom, and before honor comes humility.” Psalm 25;12,14 “Who is the man who fears the Lord? He will instruct him in the way he should choose.” 13 “His soul will abide in prosperity, and his descendants will inherit the land.” 14 “The secret of the Lord is for those who fear Him, and He will make them know His covenant.” Proverbs 8;13 “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.” Deuteronomy 17;18,19 “And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:” 19 “And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the Lord his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them.” Proverbs 28;13 “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.” Isaiah 8;13 “It is the Lord of hosts whom you should regard as holy. And He shall be your fear, and He shall be your dread.” Matthew 10;28 “Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Isaiah 51;12 “I, I am He who comforts you. Who are you that you are afraid of man who dies and of the son of man who is made like grass?” 11


Hebrews 13;6 “So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me.” Psalm 72;7 “But it is God who executes judgment, putting down one and lifting up another.” Jeremiah 17;10 “I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.” Psalm 89;14 “Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.” Psalm 19;9 “The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.” Nahum 1;3 “The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.” Deuteronomy 8;5 “Thus you are to know in your heart that the Lord your God was disciplining you just as a man disciplines his son.” Lamentations 3;32,33 “But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.” 33 “For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.” Malachi 1;6 “A son honors his father, and a servant his master. Then if I am a father, where is My honor? And if I am a master, where is My respect?’ says the Lord of hosts to you, O priests who despise My name. But you say, ‘How have we despised Your name?” Hosea 11;7 “My people are bent on turning away from me, and though they call out to the Most High, he shall not raise them up at all.” Psalm 78;40,41 “How often they rebelled against him in the wilderness and grieved him in the desert!” 41 “They tested God again and again and provoked the Holy One of Israel.” Acts 17;24,25 “The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man,” 25 “nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything.” Isaiah 66;1,2 “Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?” 2 “For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.” 12


Jeremiah 27;5 “I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.” Ecclesiastes 5;8 “If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they.” Romans 13;1,2,4,6 “Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.” 2 “Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves.” 4 “for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil.” 6 “For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing.” John 15;5 “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” John 19;11 “Jesus answered, “You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from above; for this reason he who delivered Me to you has the greater sin.” Romans 11;34,35,36 ““For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” 35 “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” 36 “For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.” Ecclesiastes 6;12 “For who knows what is good for man while he lives the few days of his vain life, which he passes like a shadow? For who can tell man what will be after him under the sun?” Isaiah 55;8,9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.” 9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Deuteronomy 32;39 “See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.” Isaiah 40;13,15 “Who hath directed the Spirit of the Lord, or being his counsellor hath taught him?”15 “Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.” Daniel 4;34,35 “And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:” 13


35 “And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?” Lamentations 3;37,38,39 “Who is there who speaks and it comes to pass, Unless the Lord has commanded it?” 38 “Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that both good and ill go forth?” 39 “Why should any living mortal, or any man, offer complaint in view of his sins.” 2 Chronicles 25:7,8 “ But a man of God came to him saying: O king, do not let the army of Israel go with you, for the Lord is not with Israel nor with any of the sons of Ephraim.” 8 “But if you do go, do it, be strong for the battle; yet God will bring you down before the enemy, for God has power to help and to bring down.” Acts 5;38,39 “So in the present case, I say to you, stay away from these men and let them alone, for if this plan or action is of men, it will be overthrown;” 39 “but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them; or else you may even be found fighting against God.” 2 Samuel 6;6,7 “And when they came to the threshing floor of Nacon, Uzzah put out his hand to the ark of God and took hold of it, for the oxen stumbled.” 7 “And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzzah, and God struck him down there because of his error, and he died there beside the ark of God.” Ecclesiastes 3;14 “I perceived that whatever God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. God has done it, so that people fear before him.” Ecclesiastes 7;13 “Consider the work of God: Who can make straight what he has made crooked?” Isaiah 45;7 “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.” Ecclesiastes 1;15 “That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.” Isaiah 40;28 “Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? There is no searching of his understanding?” Jeremiah 23;23 “Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off?” Isaiah 50;2 “Why was there no man when I came? When I called, why was there none to answer? Is My hand so short that it cannot ransom? Or have I no power to deliver? Behold, I dry up the sea with My rebuke, I make the rivers a wilderness; Their fish stink for lack of water and die of thirst.”

help

Acts 17;24,25 “God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;” 25 “Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things.” 15


Job 22;2 “Can a man be profitable unto God, as he that is wise may be profitable unto himself?” Deuteronomy 4;5,6 “Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.” 6 “Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.” 1 Timothy 4; 15,16 “Take pains with these things; be absorbed in them, so that your progress will be evident to all.” 16 “Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in these things, for as you do this you will ensure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you.” Hebrews 13;16 “ And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” John 11;41,42,43 “So they removed the stone. Then Jesus raised His eyes, and said: Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.” 42 “I knew that You always hear Me; but because of the people standing around I said it, so that they may believe that You sent Me.” 43 “When He had said these things, He cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth.” Matthew 5;16 “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” 1 John 2;29 “If you know that he is righteous, you may be sure that everyone who practices righteousness has been born of him.” James 1;27 “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” Proverbs 28;8 “He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.” Deuteronomy 23;20 “Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it.” Galatians 6;10 “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” Luke 10; 29,36,37 “But wishing to justify himself, he said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” 36 “Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers’ hands?” 37 “And he said, “The one who showed mercy toward him.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do the same.” 16


Mark 12;31: “The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these” 1 Peter 5; 2,3 “Shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness;” 3 “nor yet as lording it over those allotted to your charge, but proving to be examples to the flock” 1 Corinthians 3;6 “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth”. 1 Corinthians 15;36 “You foolish person! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies.” Matthew 13;23 “As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.” Galatians 6;15 “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.” 2 Corinthians 9;10 “Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness.” John 6;26,27,28 “Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.” 27 “Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.” 28 “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?” 2 Thessalonians 3;10 “For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.” Titus 3; 10,11 “Reject a factious man after a first and second warning,” 11” knowing that such a man is perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned.” Ezra 9;12 “So now do not give your daughters to their sons nor take their daughters to your sons, and never seek their peace or their prosperity, that you may be strong and eat the good things of the land and leave it as an inheritance to your sons forever.” Psalm 107;17 “Some were fools through their sinful ways, and because of their iniquities suffered affliction.” Lamentations 3;39 “Why should a living man complain, a man, about the punishment of his sins.” 17


Salmo 31;6 “I hate those who pay regard to worthless idols, but I trust in the Lord.” Proverbs 19;19 “A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again.” Proverbs 19;25 “Mite a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, and he will understand knowledge.” Proverbs 20;30 “The blueness of a wound cleanseth away evil: so do stripes the inward parts of the belly.” Luke 14;12,13,14 “And He also went on to say to the one who had invited Him, “When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, otherwise they may also invite you in return and that will be your repayment.” 13 “But when you give a reception, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind”, 14 “and you will be blessed, since they do not have the means to repay you; for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” John 9;41 “Jesus said to them: If you were blind, you would have no sin; but since you say, ‘We see,’ your sin remains.” Romans 2; 21,24 “You, therefore, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who preach that one shall not steal, do you steal? 24 “For ‘the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you’, just as it is written.” Levítico 19;15 “You shall do no injustice in court. You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.” Deuteronomy 25;16 “For all who do such things, all who act dishonestly, are an abomination to the Lord your God.” Proverbs 28;4 “Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, but those who keep the law strive against them.” 2 Timothy 3; 4,5,7 “Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;” 5 “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” 7 “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” Psalm 140;8 “Grant not, O Lord, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.” Proverbs 10;22,23 “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.” 23 “It is as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom.” Deuteronomy 32;39 “See now that I, I am He, And there is no god besides Me; It is I who put to death and give life. I have wounded and it is I who heal, and there is no one who can deliver from My hand.” 18


Job 5;18 “For He inflicts pain, and gives relief; He wounds, and His hands also heal.” Psalm 147;6 “The Lord supports the afflicted; He brings down the wicked to the ground.” Psalm 11;5 “The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence. ” Psalm 50;16,17 “But to the wicked God says: What right have you to recite my statutes or take my covenant on your lips?” 17 “For you hate discipline, and you cast my words behind you.” Psalm 101;7 “No one who practices deceit shall dwell in my house; no one who utters lies shall continue before my eyes.” 1 Samuel 2;7 “The Lord maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up”. 2 Kings 6; 26,27 “And as the king of Israel was passing by upon the wall, there cried a woman unto him, saying, Help, my lord, O king.” 27 “And he said, If the Lord do not help thee, whence shall I help thee? out of the barnfloor, or out of the winepress?” Exodus 33;19 “And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.” Proverbs 19;10 “Luxury is not fitting for a fool; Much less for a slave to rule over princes.” Isaiah 42; 24, 25 “Who gave Jacob up for spoil, and Israel to plunderers? Was it not the Lord, against whom we have sinned, And in whose ways they were not willing to walk, and whose law they did not obey?” 25 “So He poured out on him the heat of His anger and the fierceness of battle; and it set him aflame all around, yet he did not recognize it; and it burned him, but he paid no attention.” 2 Corinthians 7;10 “Or the sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world produces death.” Isaiah 59;1,2 “Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear dull, that it cannot hear;” 2 “but your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear.” Nahum 1;3 “The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and the Lord will by no means clear the guilty. His way is in whirlwind and storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.” Hebrews 12; 6,7 “For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.” 7 “It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline?” 19


Deuteronomy 8;5 “Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the Lord thy God chasteneth thee.” Lamentations 3;33 “For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.” Job 5;17 “Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:.” Jude 1;5 “Now I desire to remind you, though you know all things once for all, that the Lord, after saving a people out of the land of Egypt, subsequently destroyed those who did not believe;” 2 Peter 2; 5,9 “And did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly.” 9 “then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the Day of Judgment.” Jeremiah 7; 16 ,17 “As for you, do not pray for this people, and do not lift up cry or prayer for them, and do not intercede with Me; for I do not hear you.” 17 “Do you not see what they are doing in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?” Proverbs 16;4 “The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble.” 1 Samuel 2;30 “Therefore the Lord, the God of Israel, declares: ‘I promised that your house and the house of your father should go in and out before me forever,’ but now the Lord declares: ‘Far be it from me, for those who honor me I will honor, and those who despise me shall be lightly esteemed.” Jeremiah 18;8 “And if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I intended to do to it.”

love

1John 4;8 “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.� 21


Genesis 1;28 “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Isaiah 48;17 " Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.” Deuteronomy 11;1 “You shall therefore love the Lord your God, and always keep His charge, His statutes, His ordinances, and His commandments.” Deuteronomy 30;19,20 “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants,” 20 “by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them." Deuteronomy 6;5 “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” Proverbs 8;17 “I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.” Philippians 1;9 “And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment.” John 13;35 “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” Ephesians 5;25 “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;” Song of Solomon 8;7 “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned” Leviticus 19;34 “But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.” Matthew 5;44,45,46 “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” 45 “so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” 46 “For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?” 22


1 Corinthians 13;2,3,4,5,6,7,8 “If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.” 3 “And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.” 4 “Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,” 5 “does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered,” 6 “does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;” 7 “bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.” John 3;16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” Romans 13;10 “Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.” 1 John 5;3 “For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.” Galatians 5;22,23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,” 23 “meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” 1 John 3;18 “My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.” Romans 12:9 “Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.” Proverbs 27;5 “Better is open rebuke than love that is concealed.” 1 John 2;15 “Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” 1 Timothy 6;10 “For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.” Proverbs 15;17 “Better is a dinner of herbs where love is than a fattened ox and hatred with it.” 1 Corinthians 8;1,2,3 “Now concerning food offered to idols: we know that “all of us possess knowledge.” This “knowledge” puffs up, but love builds up.” 2” If anyone imagines that he knows something, he does not yet know as he ought to know”. 3” But if anyone loves God, he is known by God.”

23


Romans 14;13,14,15 “Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.” 14 “I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself, but it is unclean for anyone who thinks it unclean.” 15 “For if your brother is grieved by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. By what you eat, do not destroy the one for whom Christ died.” 1 Corinthians 8;9,10,11 “But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.” 10 “For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol's temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols;” 11 “And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?” Proverbs 9;8 “Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.” Revelation 3;19 “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”

24


Faith

Hebrews 11;17,18,19 “By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son”18 “Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called.” 19 “Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.” 25


Psalm 147;11 “The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.” Psalm 103;17 “But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children.” Proverbs 16;3 “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.” Proverbs 2;6 “For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.” Romans 10;17 “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Proverbs 3;5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.” Psalm 84;5 “Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.” Isaiah 64;4 “For from days of old they have not heard or perceived by ear, nor has the eye seen a God besides you, who acts in behalf of the one who waits for Him.” Matthew 14;30,31 “But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.” 31 “And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?” Isaiah 30;15 “For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.” Matthew 17;20,21 “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” 21 “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.” Mark 6;5 “And he could do no mighty work there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and healed them.” 2 Chronicles 32;31 “And so in the matter of the envoys of the princes of Babylon, who had been sent to him to inquire about the sign that had been done in the land, God left him to himself, in order to test him and to know all that was in his heart.” Psalm 66;10 “For you, O God, have tested us; you have tried us as silver is tried.” Mark 9;23 “And Jesus said to him, “‘If You can?’ All things are possible to him who believes.”

26


Mark 11;23,24 “Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.” 24 “Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.” 1 John 5;14,15 “This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” 15 “And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.” Matthew 21;21,22 “Jesus answered and said unto them: verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.”22 “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” James 1;6 “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.” Luke 7:7,9 “Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.” 9 “When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.” Acts 15;9 “And he made no distinction between us and them, having cleansed their hearts by faith.” James 5;17 “Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth.” Romans 14;22 “The faith that you have, keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the one who has no reason to pass judgment on himself for what he approves.” 1 John 3;21,22 “Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God;” 22 “and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight.” Proverbs 27;1 “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.” Isaiah 41;14 “Do not fear, you worm Jacob, you men of Israel; I will help you,” declares the Lord, “and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.” Psalm 113;5,7,8 “Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high,” 7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;” 8 “That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.” Ecclesiastes 7;13 “Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked?” 27


2 Thessalonians 1;11,12 “Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:” 12 “That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.” John 14;13 “Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” Hebrews 11;1,2 “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” 2 “For by it the people of old received their commendation.” Hebrews 11;5,6 “By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God.” 6 “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” 1 Corinthians 9;10 “Or is He speaking altogether for our sake? Yes, for our sake it was written, because the plowman ought to plow in hope, and the thresher to thresh in hope of sharing the crops.” James 2;23,24 “And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness,” and he was called the friend of God.” 24 “You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone.” James 2;14,19 “What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him?” 19 “You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder.” Psalm 40;4 “Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.” Psalm 56;11 “In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.” Jeremiah 17;5 “Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord” Psalm 44;6 “For not in my bow do I trust, nor can my sword save me.” Psalm 20;7 “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” Philippians 4;12,13 “I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need.” 13 “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” 28


Hebrews 10;38 “But My righteous one shall live by faith; and if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him.” 1 Peter 1;9 “Obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls.”

29


Humility

Luke 14;11 “For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.�

30


Isaiah 5; 20,21 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” 21 “Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” Isaiah 2;22 “Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?” Isaiah 10;15 “Is the axe to boast itself over the one who chops with it? Is the saw to exalt itself over the one who wields it? That would be like a club wielding those who lift it, or like a rod lifting him who is not wood.” 1 Corinthians 4;7 “For who regards you as superior? What do you have that you did not

receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?” James 4;15,16 “Instead, you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that’.” 16 “But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil.” Isaiah 47; 10,11 “You felt secure in your wickedness, you said: ‘No one sees me’; your wisdom and your knowledge led you astray, and you said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me’.” 11 “But evil shall come upon you, which you will not know how to charm away; disaster shall fall upon you, for which you will not be able to atone; and ruin shall come upon you suddenly, of which you know nothing.” Jeremiah 9; 23,24 “Thus says the Lord: Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches,” 24 “but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.” Proverbs 16;2 “All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit.” Salmo 138;6 “Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.” James 4;6 ” But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.” 2 Chronicles 12; 6,7 “Whereupon the princes of Israel and the king humbled themselves; and they said, The Lord is righteous.” 7 “And when the Lord saw that they humbled themselves, the word of the Lord came to Shemaiah, saying, They have humbled themselves; therefore I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some deliverance; and my wrath shall not be poured out upon Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak.”

31


Daniel 10;12 “Then he said to me: Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words.” Proverbs 15;33 “The fear of the Lord is the instruction for wisdom, and before honor comes humility.” Proverbs 18;12 “Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, but humility goes before honor.” Proverbs 22;4 “The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches and honor and life.” Psalm 40;4 “Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after a lie.” Proverbs 11;2 “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom.” Job 22;29 “When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.” Proverbs 14;3 “In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.” Ezekiel 21;26 “Thus saith the Lord God; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high.” Salmo 140;8 “Do not grant, O Lord, the desires of the wicked; do not promote his evil device, that they not be exalted.” Matthew 23;8 “But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers.” Matthew 3;9 “And do not suppose that you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham for our father’; for I say to you that from these stones God is able to raise up children to Abraham.” 1 Thessalonians 5;21 “But test everything; hold fast what is good;”

32


Prosperity

Exodus 33;19 “And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.� 33


Matthew 6;31,33 “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? Or, what shall we drink? Or, wherewithal shall we be clothed?” 33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Psalm 37;3,4,5 “Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.” 4 “Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” 5 “Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.” 1 John 3;22 “And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight.” Psalm 34;8 “O taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him.” Mark 11;23,24 “Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.” 24 “Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you;” John 9;31 “We know that God does not listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does his will, God listens to him.” Deuteronomy 8;10 “And you shall eat and be full, and you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land he has given you.” Deuteronomy 8;18 “You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” Psalm 5;11 “But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.” 2 Corinthians 1;3,4 “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;” 4 “Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” Jeremiah 22;16 “He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well with him: was not this to know me? Saith the Lord.” Hosea 6;3 “O let us know, let us press on to know the Lord. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; and He will come to us like the rain, like the spring rain watering the earth.” Jeremiah 29;13 “You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.” 34


John 11;41,42 “So they removed the stone. Then Jesus raised His eyes, and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.” 42 “I knew that You always hear Me; but because of the people standing around I said it, so that they may believe that You sent Me.” 1 Kings 18;37 “Answer me, O Lord, answer me, that this people may know that you, O Lord, are God, and that you have turned their hearts back.” Psalm 73;28 “But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.” Proverbs 27;11 “Be wise, my son, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him who reproaches me.” Luke 6;35 “But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil” Deuteronomy 6;5,6,7,8 “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” 6 “And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:” 7 “And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.” 8 “And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.” Joshua 1;8,9 “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” 9 “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” Psalm 1;1,2,3 “How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers!” 2 “But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.” 3 “He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers.” 1 Kings 2;3,4 “Keep the charge of the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes, His commandments, His ordinances, and His testimonies, according to what is written in the Law of Moses, that you may succeed in all that you do and wherever you turn,” 4 “so that the Lord may carry out His promise which He spoke concerning me, saying, ‘If your sons are careful of their way, to walk before Me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, you shall not lack a man on the throne of Israel’.” Deuteronomy 4;5,6 “See, I have taught you statutes and judgments just as the Lord my God commanded me, that you should do thus in the land where you are entering to possess it” 6 “So keep and do them, for that is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of 35


the peoples who will hear all these statutes and say, ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people’.” 1 Kings 8;60 “That all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no other.” Deuteronomy 17;18,19 “And when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write for himself in a book a copy of this law, approved by the Levitical priests.” 19 “And it shall be with him, and he shall read in it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the Lord his God by keeping all the words of this law and these statutes, and doing them.” Leviticus 26;3,4,5,6,7 “If you walk in my statutes and observe my commandments and do them,” 4 “then I will give you your rains in their season, and the land shall yield its increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit”. 5 “Your threshing shall last to the time of the grape harvest, and the grape harvest shall last to the time for sowing. And you shall eat your bread to the full and dwell in your land securely.” 6 “I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid. And I will remove harmful beasts from the land, and the sword shall not go through your land.” 7 “You shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword.” Deuteronomy 28;1,2,3 “And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:” 2 “And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.” 3 “Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.” Deuteronomy 28; 6,7,8,9,10 “Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.” 7 “The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.” 8 “The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.” 9 “The Lord shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways.” 10 “And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee.” Deuteronomy 28;13 “And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them.” Deuteronomy 28;15,16,19 “But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:” 16 “Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.” 19 “Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.” 36


Deuteronomy 28;29,30 “and you will grope at noon, as the blind man gropes in darkness, and you will not prosper in your ways; but you shall only be oppressed and robbed continually, with none to save you.” 30 “You shall betroth a wife, but another man will violate her; you shall build a house, but you will not live in it; you shall plant a vineyard, but you will not use its fruit” Leviticus 26;15,16 “If, instead, you reject My statutes, and if your soul abhors My ordinances so as not to carry out all My commandments, and so break My covenant,” 16 “I, in turn, will do this to you: I will appoint over you a sudden terror, consumption and fever that will waste away the eyes and cause the soul to pine away; also, you will sow your seed uselessly, for your enemies will eat it up.” Leviticus 26;41,42 “So that I walked contrary to them and brought them into the land of their enemies if then their uncircumcised heart is humbled and they make amends for their iniquity,” 42 “then I will remember my covenant with Jacob, and I will remember my covenant with Isaac and my covenant with Abraham, and I will remember the land.” Jude 1;16 “These are grumblers, malcontents, following their own sinful desires; they are loud-mouthed boasters, showing favoritism to gain advantage.” Ecclesiastes 5;6 “Let not your mouth lead you into sin, and do not say before the messenger that it was a mistake. Why should God be angry at your voice and destroy the work of your hands?” Proverbs 26;10 “Like an archer who wounds everyone is one who hires a passing fool or drunkard.” Psalm 66;18 “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.” Job 13;10 “He will surely reprove you, if ye do secretly accept persons.” Malachi 2;9 “Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.” Proverbs 29;7 “The righteous is concerned for the rights of the poor, the wicked does not understand such concern.” Jeremiah 5;28,29 “They are fat, they are sleek, they also excel in deeds of wickedness; they do not plead the cause, the cause of the orphan, that they may prosper; and they do not defend the rights of the poor.” 29 “Shall I not punish these people? Declares the Lord, on a nation such as this shall I not avenge Myself?” Jonah 2;8 “They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.”

Psalm 62;10,11,12 “Do not trust in oppression and do not vainly hope in robbery; if riches increase, do not set your heart upon them.” 11 “Once God has spoken; twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God;” 12 “And lovingkindness is Yours, O Lord, for You recompense a man according to his work.” Proverbs 19;10 “It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury, much less for a slave to rule over princes.” Proverbs 21;17 “Whoever loves pleasure will be a poor man; he who loves wine and oil will not be rich.” Ecclesiastes 5;10 “He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.” Luke 12;21 “So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.” Ecclesiastes 5;13 “There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt;” James 4;15,16 “Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.” 16 “But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil.” Habakkuk 2;9 “Woe to him who gets evil gain for his house to put his nest on high, to be delivered from the hand of calamity!” Jeremiah 48;7 “For because of your trust in your own achievements and treasures, even you yourself will be captured; and Chemosh will go off into exile together with his priests and his princes.” Jeremiah 2;25 “Keep your feet from going unshod and your throat from thirst. But you said: It is hopeless, for I have loved foreigners, and after them I will go.” Proverbs 5;8,9,10 “Keep your way far from her, and do not go near the door of her house,” 9 “lest you give your honor to others and your years to the merciless,” 10 “lest strangers take their fill of your strength, and your labors go to the house of a foreigner.” Ezra 9;12 “Therefore do not give your daughters to their sons, neither take their daughters for your sons, and never seek their peace or prosperity, that you may be strong and eat the good of the land and leave it for an inheritance to your children forever.” Hosea 4;14 “I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, nor your spouses when they commit adultery: for themselves are separated with whores, and they sacrifice with harlots: therefore the people that doth not understand shall fall.” Numbers 33;55 “But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell.” 38


Psalm 28;3,4,5 “Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts.” 4 “Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.” 5 “Because they regard not the works of the Lord, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.” Deuteronomy 30;19,20 “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” 20 “That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.” Isaiah 30;15 “For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.” Joshua 24;13,14 “And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat.” 14 “Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the Lord.” Deuteronomy 6;11,12 “And houses full of all good things that you did not fill, and cisterns that you did not dig, and vineyards and olive trees that you did not plant and when you eat and are full,” 12 “then take care lest you forget the Lord, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.” Psalm 103;17,18 “But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children's children,” 18 “to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.” Isaiah 35;4,5 “Say to those who have an anxious heart, “Be strong; fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.” 5 “Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped.” Ecclesiastes 5;19 “Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.” Ecclesiastes 2;26 “For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy: but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit.” Proverbs 29;26 “Many seek the ruler's favour; but every man's judgment cometh from the Lord.” 39


Psalm 127;1,2 “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.” 2 “It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.” Deuteronomy 8;11,12,14 “Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:” 12 “Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein;” 14 “Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the Lord thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.” Ecclesiastes 7;14 “In the day of prosperity be happy, but in the day of adversity consider God has made the one as well as the other so that man will not discover anything that will be after him.” 1 Samuel 2;7,8,9 “The Lord makes poor and makes rich; he brings low and he exalts.” 8 “He raises up the poor from the dust; he lifts the needy from the ash heap to make them sit with princes and inherit a seat of honor. For the pillars of the earth are the Lord's, and on them he has set the world.” 9 “He will guard the feet of his faithful ones, but the wicked shall be cut off in darkness, for not by might shall a man prevail.” Ecclesiastes 9;11 “Again I saw that under the sun the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favor to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all.” Proverbs 16;33 “The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.” Jeremiah 13;25 “This is thy lot, the portion of thy measures from me, saith the Lord; because thou hast forgotten me, and trusted in falsehood.” Psalm 16;5 “The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.” Psalm 100;2,3 “Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.” 3 “Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.” 1 Corinthians 7;22 “For he who was called in the Lord while a slave, is the Lord’s freedman; likewise he who was called while free, is Christ’s slave; Galatians 1;10 “For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 3;22,23 “Whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or things present or things to come; all things belong to you,” 23 “and you belong to Christ; and Christ belongs to God.” 40


Psalm 51;17 “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” Isaiah 58;6,9,10 “Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?” 9 “Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and he will say, ‘Here I am.’ If you take away the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,” 10 “if you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday.” John 3;20,21 “For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.” 21 “But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God." Matthew 6;21,22 “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” 22 “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.” 1 John 1;7 “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” Acts 26;18 “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.” Deuteronomy 16;19,20 “You shall not distort justice; you shall not be partial, and you shall not take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and perverts the words of the righteous.” 20 “Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue, that you may live and possess the land which the Lord your God is giving you.” Zechariah 7;9 “Thus has the Lord of hosts said: Dispense true justice and practice kindness and compassion each to his brother;” Isaiah 33;15,16 “He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly, who despises the gain of oppressions, who shakes his hands, lest they hold a bribe, who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed and shuts his eyes from looking on evil,” 16 “he will dwell on the heights; his place of defense will be the fortresses of rocks; his bread will be given him; his water will be sure.” Isaiah 42;21 “The Lord was pleased, for his righteousness' sake, to magnify his law and make it glorious.” 1 Kings 3;11,13 “And God said to him, “Because you have asked this, and have not asked for yourself long life or riches or the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern what is right,” 12 “behold, I now do according to your word. Behold, I give you a wise and discerning mind, so that none like you has been before you 41


and none like you shall arise after you.” 13 “I give you also what you have not asked, both riches and honor, so that no other king shall compare with you, all your days.” Luke 12;48 “But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.” Psalm 58;11 “So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.” Deuteronomy 23;20 “Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it." Luke 16;9,10 “And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by means of the wealth of unrighteousness, so that when it fails, they will receive you into the eternal dwellings.” 10 “He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much.” Proverbs 3;27 “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.” 2 Timothy 2;6,7 “It is the hard-working farmer who ought to have the first share of the crops.” 7 “Think over what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything.” Psalm 27;13 “I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” Amos 6;13,14 “Ye which rejoice in a thing of nought, which say, Have we not taken to us horns by our own strength?” 14 “But, behold, I will raise up against you a nation, O house of Israel, saith the Lord the God of hosts; and they shall afflict you from the entering in of Hemath unto the river of the wilderness.” Proverbs 16;4 “The Lord hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.” Amos 5;15 “Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the Lord God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.” Deuteronomy 9;4 “Speak not thou in thine heart, after that the Lord thy God hath cast them out from before thee, saying, For my righteousness the Lord hath brought me in to possess this land: but for the wickedness of these nations the Lord doth drive them out from before thee.” Psalm 125;3 “For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest upon the land of the righteous, so that the righteous will not put forth their hands to do wrong.” 42


Proverbs 3;9 “Honor the Lord from your wealth and from the first of all your produce.” Luke 12;34 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” 2 Corinthians 9;9,10,11 “As it is written, “He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.” 10 “He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness.” 11 “You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God.” Ecclesiastes 11;1 “Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days.” Proverbs 28;27 “Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse.” 2 Corinthians 9;1,7 “For as touching the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you.” 7 “Very man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.” Psalm 16;2 “O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee.” Psalm 92;13,15 “Planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God.” 15 “To declare that the Lord is upright; he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.” Zechariah 8;17 “Also let none of you devise evil in your heart against another, and do not love perjury; for all these are what I hate, declares the Lord.” Haggai 1;9 “You look for much, but behold, it comes to little; when you bring it home, I blow it away. Why? declares the Lord of hosts, Because of My house which lies desolate, while each of you runs to his own house.” James 4;3 “You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.” Matthew 16;23 “But he turned and said to Peter: Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me. For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.”

wisdom

Ecclesiastes 2;13 “Then I saw that wisdom excelleth folly, as far as light excelleth darkness.� 44

Wisdom has the advantage of giving success.” Proverbs 17;16 “Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing he hath no heart to it? Psalm 119;97,98,99,100 e 104 “Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day.” 98 “Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies, for it is ever with me.” 99 “I have more understanding than all my teachers, for your testimonies are my meditation.” 100 “I understand more than the aged, for I keep your precepts.” 104 “Through your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.” Psalm 19;7 “The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.” Proverbs 15;33 “The fear of the Lord is instruction in wisdom, and humility comes before honor.” Proverbs 11;2 “When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.” Proverbs 3;5,6,7 “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.” 6 “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” 7 “Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.” Proverbs 29;25 “The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.” Proverbs 4;13 “Take hold of instruction; do not let go. Guard her, for she is your life.” Proverbs 13;24 “He who withholds his rod hates his son, But he who loves him disciplines him diligently.” Proverbs 17;10 “A rebuke goes deeper into one who has understanding than a hundred blows into a fool.”

Matthew 12;42 “The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.” Hebrews 11;14,15,16 “For those who say such things make it clear that they are seeking a country of their own.” 15 “And indeed if they had been thinking of that country from which they went out, they would have had opportunity to return.” 16 “But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them.” Jude 1;5 “Now I desire to remind you, though you know all things once for all, that the Lord, after saving a people out of the land of Egypt, subsequently destroyed those who did not believe.” 1 Peter 4;12 “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you;” Daniel 12;10 “Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be refined, but the wicked shall act wickedly.

Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers.” 1 Thessalonians 5;21 “But test everything; hold fast what is good.” 1 John 4;1 “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” Romans 12;2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Philippians 4;5 “Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.” 1 Samuel 16;7 “But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Corinthians 4;20 “For the kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power.” James 1;26 “If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless.” Proverbs 12;23 “A prudent man conceals knowledge, but the heart of fools proclaims folly.” 47


Proverbs 18;21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.” Luke 6;45 “The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” Proverbs 25;6 “Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men.” Job 15;31 “Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence.” Hosea 4;11 “Harlotry, wine and new wine take away the understanding.” Colossians 3;2,5 “Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.” 5 “Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry.” Ecclesiastes 8;11 “Because the sentence against an evil deed is not executed quickly, therefore the hearts of the sons of men among them are given fully to do evil.” Ecclesiastes 4;4 “Then I saw that all toil and all skill in work come from a man's envy of his neighbor. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.” Proverbs 17;8 “A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.” Proverbs 18;16 “A man's gift makes room for him and brings him before the great.” Proverbs 25;27 “It is not good to eat much honey: so for men to search their own glory is not glory.” John 7;18 “He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.” Colossians 3;23 “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.” Proverbs 22;29 “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.” Proverbs 27;18 “He who tends the fig tree will eat its fruit, and he who cares for his master will be honored.” Proverbs 27;23,24 “Know well the condition of your flocks, and pay attention to your herds; “24 “For riches are not forever, nor does a crown endure to all generations”

Psalm 15;1,2,3,4 “Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in thy holy hill?” 2 “He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.” 3 “He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.” 4 “In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the Lord. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.” Romans 12;2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 8;14 “For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” 1 John 3;9,10 “No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.” 10 “By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.” Ephesians 4;13 “Until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Chris.” Ephesians 5;1 “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.” Hebrews 12;14 “Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.” John 15;8 “By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.” Daniel 12;3 “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” Daniel 3;17,18 “If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.” 18 “But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.” 2 Peter 1;10 “Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall.” Luke 21;36 “But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.” Matthew 25;8,9,10 “The foolish said to the prudent, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’” 9 “But the prudent answered, ‘No, there will not be enough for us and you too; go instead to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.’” 10 “And while they 51


were going away to make the purchase, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut.” Salmo 119; 105 “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” John 3;18,19,20 “Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.” 19 “And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.” 20 “For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.” John 5;39 “You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me.” John 12;48 “The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day.” John 17;17 “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” 1 Timothy 4;12,13,14,15,16 “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” 13 “Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.” 14 “Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.” 15 “Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.” 16 “Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.” Revelation 14;12 “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” Ezekiel 18;27 “Again, when a wicked man turns away from his wickedness which he has committed and practices justice and righteousness, he will save his life.” Ezekiel 33;18,19 “Then the righteous turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, then he shall die in it.” 19 “But when the wicked turns from his wickedness and practices justice and righteousness, he will live by them.” Luke 13;2,3 “And Jesus said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were greater sinners than all other Galileans because they suffered this fate?” 3 “I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.” Mark 7;22,23 “Coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness.” 23 “All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.” Galatians 5;19,20,21 “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,” 20 “Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, 52

The soul who sins will die.” Luke 9;62 “But Jesus said to him: No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” 1 Timothy 6;17,18 “Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;” 18 “That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate.” Matthew 19; 24 “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.” Proverbs 13;7 “There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.” Luke 13;23,24.25,26,27 “And someone said to him, “Lord, will those who are saved be few?” And he said to them,” 24 “Strive to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able.” 25 “When once the master of the house has risen and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, open to us,’ then he will answer you, ‘I do not know where you come from.’” 26 “Then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our 53


streets.’” 27 “But he will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you come from. Depart from me, all you workers of evil!’” Matthew 22;14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.” Revelation 20;12 “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.” Revelation 22;11 “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.” John 5;29 “And will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.” Romans 8;27 “And He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” Ezekiel 33;13 “When I say to the righteous he will surely live, and he so trusts in his righteousness that he commits iniquity, none of his righteous deeds will be remembered; but in that same iniquity of his which he has committed he will die.” 2 Peter 2;20 “For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.” Ezekiel 18;23 “Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, declares the Lord God, and not rather that he should turn from his way and live?” Ezekiel 14;20 “Even if Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live, declares the Lord God, they would deliver neither son nor daughter. They would deliver but their own lives by their righteousness.” 2 Timothy 2;11,12,13 “It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:”12 “If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:”13 “If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.” John 5;19 “Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.” John 17;3 “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” 1 John 1;9 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 54
