Genesis 1:26

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image--after our likeness--and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that

Genesis 6:1-22

1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair. And they took to them wives of all that they chose. 3 And LORD said, My spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he also is flesh. Yet shall his days be a hundred and twenty years. 4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days. And also after that, when the sons of God came to the daughters of men, and they bore sons to them, the same were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown. 5 And LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And LORD regretted that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him in his heart. 7 And LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the ground, from man, to beast, to creeping things, and birds of the heavens, for I regret that I have made them. 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of LORD. 9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begot three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11 And the earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 And God saw the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. 13 And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh has come before me, for the earth is filled with violence through them, and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood. Thou shall make rooms in the ark, and shall pitch it inside and outside with pitch. 15 And this is how thou shall make it: The length of the ark three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 16 Thou shall make a light for the ark, and thou shall finish it to a cubit upward. And thou shall set the door of the ark in the side of it, with lower, second, and third stories thou shall make it. 17 And I, behold, I bring the flood of waters upon this earth, to destroy all flesh, in which is the breath of life, from under heaven. Everything that is on the earth shall die. 18 But I will establish my covenant with thee. And thou shall come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee. 19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort thou shall bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee. They shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds according to their kind, and of the cattle according to their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground according to its kind. Two of every sort shall come to thee, to keep them alive. 21 And take thou to thee of all food that is eaten, and gather it to thee, and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. 22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.

Proverbs 16:28

28 A perverse man scatters abroad strife, and a whisperer separates chief friends.

1 Corinthians 6:11

11 And some of you were these things, but ye were washed, but ye were sanctified, but ye were made righteous in the name of the Lord Jesus, and in the Spirit of our God.

Matthew 6:24

24 No man can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one, and love the other, or he will hold to one, and disparage the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Romans 1:18-32

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all irreverence and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what is knowable of God is apparent in them, for God made it known to them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things made, both his eternal power and divinity, for them to be without excuse. 21 Because, although knowing God, they did not glorify him as God, nor were they thankful, but became vain in their reasonings and their heart was darkened without understanding. 22 Professing to be wise, they became foolish, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image like corruptible man, and of birds, and four-footed things, and creeping things. 24 And for this reason God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to uncleanness, to degrade their bodies among themselves, 25 who changed the truth of God into the lie, and worshiped and served the creation against him who created it, who is blessed into the ages. Truly. 26 Because of this God gave them up to shameful passions, for even their females changed the natural use into what is against nature. 27 And likewise also the males, having left the natural use of the female, burned in their lust toward each other, males with males producing shamelessness, and receiving in themselves the recompense of their deviancy that was fitting 28 And just as they did not approve having God in knowledge, God gave them over to an unfit mind, to do things that are not fit; 29 having been filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity; 30 being gossips, slanderous, God-hating, aggressors, arrogant boasters, contrivers of evil things, disobedient to parents; 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful. 32 Who, knowing the righteousness of God, that those who commit such things are worthy of death, not only do them, but also favor those who do.

Romans 1:1-32

1 Paul, a bondman of Jesus Christ, a called apostle separated for the good-news of God 2 (which he fore-promised through his prophets in the holy scriptures) 3 concerning his Son who was made from the seed of David according to flesh. 4 He who was designated Son of God in power, according to a spirit of holiness, from a resurrection of the dead--Jesus Christ our Lord-- 5 through whom we received grace and apostleship for obedience of faith among all the nations on behalf of his name, 6 among which ye also are the called of Jesus Christ. 7 To all who are in Rome, beloved of God, to the called, to the sanctified: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 8 Truly, I first express thanks to my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, that your faith is proclaimed in the whole world. 9 For God is my witness whom I serve in my spirit in the good-news of his Son, how unceasingly I make mention of you always in my prayers, 10 pleading, if somehow now at last I will have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come to you. 11 For I long to see you, so that I may impart some spiritual gift to you, in order to establish you, 12 and that is, to be mutually encouraged among you through each other's faith, both yours and mine. 13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, that I often intended to come to you (and was prevented until now), so that I might have some fruit also among you, even as among the other Gentiles. 14 I am debtor both to Greeks and to Barbarians, both to the wise and to the foolish. 15 So the willingness is in me to preach the good-news also to you in Rome. 16 For I am not ashamed of the good-news of Christ, for it is the power of God for salvation to every man who believes, both to the Jew first, and to the Greek. 17 For the righteousness of God is revealed in it from faith for faith, just as it is written, And the righteous man will live from faith. 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all irreverence and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what is knowable of God is apparent in them, for God made it known to them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things made, both his eternal power and divinity, for them to be without excuse. 21 Because, although knowing God, they did not glorify him as God, nor were they thankful, but became vain in their reasonings and their heart was darkened without understanding. 22 Professing to be wise, they became foolish, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image like corruptible man, and of birds, and four-footed things, and creeping things. 24 And for this reason God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to uncleanness, to degrade their bodies among themselves, 25 who changed the truth of God into the lie, and worshiped and served the creation against him who created it, who is blessed into the ages. Truly. 26 Because of this God gave them up to shameful passions, for even their females changed the natural use into what is against nature. 27 And likewise also the males, having left the natural use of the female, burned in their lust toward each other, males with males producing shamelessness, and receiving in themselves the recompense of their deviancy that was fitting 28 And just as they did not approve having God in knowledge, God gave them over to an unfit mind, to do things that are not fit; 29 having been filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity; 30 being gossips, slanderous, God-hating, aggressors, arrogant boasters, contrivers of evil things, disobedient to parents; 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful. 32 Who, knowing the righteousness of God, that those who commit such things are worthy of death, not only do them, but also favor those who do.

Ephesians 4:14-15

14 So that we may no longer be childish, tossed about and carried about by every wind of doctrine by the trickery of men in craftiness with the methodology of error. 15 But being truthful in love, we may cause all things to grow for him who is the head--the Christ--

Acts 16:1-40

1 And he came to Derbe and to Lystra. And behold, a certain disciple was there, named Timothy, the son of a certain faithful Jewish woman, but of a Greek father, 2 who was well reported of by the brothers at Lystra and Iconium. 3 Paul wanted this man to go forth with him. And having taken him, he circumcised him because of the Jews who were in those regions, for they had all seen that his father was a Greek. 4 And as they were going through the cities, they delivered to them the decrees to keep, which were determined by the apostles and elders at Jerusalem. 5 Indeed therefore the congregations were strengthened in the faith, and increased in number daily. 6 But having passed through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia, 7 having come toward Mysia, they attempted to go toward Bithynia. And the Spirit did not allow them. 8 And after passing by Mysia, they came down to Troas. 9 And a vision appeared to Paul during the night. A certain Macedonian man was standing, imploring him, and saying, After crossing over into Macedonia, help us. 10 And after he saw the vision, straightaway we sought to go forth into Macedonia, concluding that the Lord called us to preach the good-news to them. 11 Therefore, having launched from Troas, we took a straight course to Samothrace, and the next day to Neapolis, 12 and from there to Philippi, which is a principle city of the district of Macedonia colony. And we were in the same city remaining some days. 13 And on the Sabbath day we went outside the city beside a river, where it was customary for prayer to be. And having sat down, we spoke to the women who came together. 14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple of the city of Thyatira, a woman who worshiped God, was listening, whose heart the Lord opened to heed the things being spoken by Paul. 15 And when she was immersed, and her household, she urged us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, after coming into my house, remain. And she constrained us. 16 And it came to pass, as we were going to prayer, for a certain servant girl having a spirit of divination to meet us, who brought her masters much business by soothsaying. 17 This woman having followed Paul and us was crying out, saying, These men are bondmen of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation. 18 And she did this on many days. But Paul, after being exasperated, and having turned, he said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And it came out the same hour. 19 But when her masters saw that the hope of their business was gone, having seized Paul and Silas, they dragged them into the marketplace to the rulers. 20 And after bringing them to the magistrates, they said, These men, being Jews, disturb our city, 21 and proclaim customs that are not permitted for us to receive nor to do, being Romans. 22 And the multitude rose up together against them. And the magistrates, having torn off their clothes, commanded to beat them with rods. 23 And having laid many blows upon them, they cast them into prison, having ordered the jailor to guard them securely, 24 who, having received such an order, threw them into the inner prison, and fastened their feet in the stocks. 25 Now toward midnight Paul and Silas, while praying, were singing praises to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26 And suddenly a great earthquake occurred, so as for the foundations of the prison to shake. And immediately all the doors were opened, and the bonds of all the men were unfastened. 27 And the jailor, who became awake and who saw the prison doors opened, having drawn out a sword was going to kill himself, supposing the prisoners to have fled. 28 But Paul cried out in a great voice, saying, Do nothing harmful to thyself, for we are all here. 29 And having asked for lights, he rushed in, and having become trembling, he fell down before Paul and Silas. 30 And after bringing them outside, he said, Sirs, what must I do so that I may be saved? 31 And they said, Believe in the Lord Jesus, and thou will be saved, thou and thy household. 32 And they spoke the word of the Lord to him, and to all those in his house. 33 And having taken them in that hour of the night, he washed from the stripes, and was immersed, he and all those of him, immediately. 34 And having brought them into his house, he set out a table, and rejoiced, having believed in God with all his house. 35 But when it became day, the magistrates sent out the police, saying, Release those men. 36 And the jailor reported these words to Paul: The magistrates have sent out so that ye may be released. Now therefore after coming out, go in peace. 37 But Paul said to them, Having beaten us publicly, uncondemned men, being Romans, they cast us into prison, and now they thrust us out privately? Certainly not, but after coming, they shall lead us out. 38 And the police reported these sayings to the magistrates, and they were afraid when they heard that they were Romans. 39 And having come they besought them, and when they brought them out, they asked them to go out of the city. 40 And having departed from the prison, they came in to Lydia. And after seeing the brothers, they encouraged them, and departed.

Luke 16:13

13 No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
