Leviticus 19:28

28 And you shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead; and you shall not put on yourself any etched mark; I am Jehovah.

Exodus 20:1-26

1 And God spoke all these words, saying: 2 I am Jehovah your God, who has brought you out from the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. 3 You shall not have any other gods beside Me. 4 You shall not make a graven image for yourself, or any likeness in the heavens above, or in the earth beneath, or in the waters under the earth; 5 you shall not bow to them, and you shall not serve them; for I am Jehovah your God, a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of fathers on sons, on the third and on the fourth generation, to those that hate Me; 6 and doing kindness to thousands, to those loving Me, and to those keeping My commandments. 7 You shall not take the name of Jehovah your God in vain; for Jehovah will not leave unpunished the one 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 and the seventh day is a sabbath to Jehovah your God; you shall not do any work, you, and your son, and your daughter, your male slave and your slave-girl, and your livestock, and your stranger who is in your gates. 11 For in six days Jehovah made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all which is in them, and He rested on the seventh day; on account of this Jehovah blessed the sabbath day and sanctified it. 12 Honor your father and your mother, so that your days may be long on the land which Jehovah your God is giving to you. 13 You shall not murder. 14 You shall not commit adultery. 15 You shall not steal. 16 You shall not testify a witness of falsehood against your neighbor. 17 You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male slave, or his slave-girl, or his ox, or his ass, or anything which belongs to your neighbor. 18 And all the people saw the thunders, and the lightnings, and the sound of the ram's horn, and the smoking mountain. And the people looked, and they trembled, and they stood from a distance. 19 And they said to Moses, You speak with us, and we will hear. And let us not speak with God, that we not die. 20 And Moses said to the people, Do not be afraid, for God has come in order to test you, and so that His fear may be on your faces, that you may not sin. 21 And the people stood from a distance, and Moses went near the thick darkness where God was . 22 And Jehovah said to Moses, You shall say this to the sons of Israel: You have seen that I have spoken with you from the heavens. 23 You shall not make gods of silver along with Me, and you shall not make gods of gold for yourselves. 24 You shall make an altar of earth for Me, and you shall sacrifice your burnt offerings and your peace offerings on it, your sheep and your cattle. In every place in which I cause My name to be remembered, I will come to you and will bless you. 25 And if you make an altar of stone for Me, you shall not build them of cut stones. When you swing your tool on it, you defile it. 26 And you shall not go up by steps to My altar, that your nakedness may not be uncovered on it.

Psalms 119:105

105 Nun. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Romans 13:4

4 for it is a servant of God to you for the good. But if you practice evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is a servant of God, an avenger for wrath to the one practicing evil.

Matthew 5:1-48

1 But seeing the crowds, He went up into the mountain, and seating Himself, His disciples came near to Him. 2 And opening His mouth, He taught them, saying: 3 Blessed are the poor in spirit! For theirs is the kingdom of the Heavens. 4 Blessed are they who mourn! For they shall be comforted. 5 Blessed are the meek! For they shall inherit the earth. Psa. 37:11 6 Blessed are they who hunger and thirst after righteousness! For they shall be filled. 7 Blessed are the merciful! For they shall obtain mercy. 8 Blessed are the pure in heart! For they shall see God. 9 Blessed are the peacemakers! For they shall be called sons of God. 10 Blessed are they who have been persecuted for righteousness' sake! For theirs is the kingdom of Heaven. 11 Blessed are you when they shall reproach you, and persecute you, and shall say every evil word against you, lying, on account of Me. 12 Rejoice and leap for joy, for your reward is great in Heaven; for in this way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. 13 You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt becomes tasteless, with what shall it be salted? For it has strength for nothing any more but to be thrown out and to be trampled under by men. 14 You are the light of the world. A city situated on a mountain cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under the grain measure, but on the lampstand; and it shines for all who are in the house. 16 So let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works, and may glorify your Father in Heaven. 17 Do not think that I came to annul the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to annul, but to fulfill. 18 Truly I say to you, Until the heaven and the earth pass away, in no way shall one iota or one tittle pass away from the law until all comes to pass. 19 Therefore, whoever relaxes one of these commandments, the least, and shall teach men so, he shall be called least in the kingdom of Heaven. But whoever does and teaches them, this one shall be called great in the kingdom of Heaven. 20 For I say to you, If your righteousness shall not exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees, in no way shall you go into the kingdom of Heaven. 21 You have heard that it was said to the ancients: "Do not commit murder!" And, Whoever commits murder shall be liable to the Judgment. Ex. 20:13; Deut. 5:17 22 But I say to you, Everyone who is angry with his brother without a cause shall be liable to the Judgment. And whoever says to his brother, Raca, shall be liable to the sanhedrin; but whoever says, Fool! shall be liable to be thrown into the fire of Hell. 23 Therefore, if you offer your gift on the altar, and remember there that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go. First, be reconciled to your brother, and then coming, offer your gift. 25 Be well intentioned toward your opponent quickly, while you are in the way with him, that the opponent not deliver you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. 26 Truly, I say to you, In no way shall you come out from there until you pay the last kodrantes. 27 You have heard that it was said to the ancients: "Do not commit adultery." Ex. 20:14; Deut. 5:18 28 But I say to you, Everyone looking at a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 But if your right eye offends you, take it out and throw it from you, for it is profitable to you that one of your members should perish and all your body not be thrown into Hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to offend, cut it off and throw it from you, for it is profitable to you that one of your members should perish and all your body not be thrown into Hell. 31 It was also said, Whoever puts away his wife, "let him give her a bill of divorce." Deut. 24:1 32 But I say to you, Whoever puts away his wife, apart from a matter of fornication, causes her to commit adultery. And who ever shall marry the one put away commits adultery. 33 Again, you have heard that it was said to the ancients: "You shall not swear falsely, but shall give your oaths to the Lord." Lev. 19:12; Num. 30:2 34 But I say to you, Do not swear at all, neither by Heaven, because it is God's throne; Isa. 66:1 35 nor by the earth, because it is the footstool of His feet; nor by Jerusalem, because it is the city of the great King. Isa. 66:1; Psa. 48:2 36 Nor shall you swear by your head, because you are not able to make one hair white or black. 37 But let your word be Yes, yes; No, no. For whatever is more than these is from evil. 38 You have heard that it was said: "An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth;" Ex. 21:24; Lev. 24:20; Deut. 19:21 39 but I say to you, Do not resist the evil; but whoever strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other to him also. 40 And to him desiring to sue you, and to take your tunic, allow him also to have the coat. 41 And whoever shall compel you to go one mile, go two with him. 42 He asking you to give, and he wishing to borrow from you, do not turn away. 43 You have heard that it was said, "You shall love your neighbor" and hate your enemy; Lev. 19:18 44 but I say to you, Love your enemies; bless those cursing you, do well to those hating you; and pray for those abusing and persecuting you, 45 so that you may become sons of your Father in Heaven. Because He causes the sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and unjust. 46 For if you love those loving you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax-collectors do the same? 47 And if you only greet your brothers, what exceptional thing do you do? Do not the tax-collectors do so? 48 Therefore, you be perfect even as your Father in Heaven is perfect.

Revelation 22:18

18 For I testify together with everyone hearing the words of the prophecy of this Book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add upon him the plagues having been written in this Book.

2 Timothy 3:16

16 Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,

John 14:26

26 but the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things and shall remind you of all things that I said to you.

John 1:1

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Matthew 4:1-25

1 Then Jesus was led up into the wilderness by the Spirit, to be tempted by the Devil. 2 And having fasted forty days and forty nights, afterwards He hungered. 3 And coming near to Him, the Tempter said, If You are the Son of God, speak that these stones may become loaves. 4 But answering, He said, It has been written: "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word going out of the mouth of God." Deut. 8:3 5 Then the Devil takes Him to the holy city, and he set Him on the wing of the temple. 6 And he said to Him, If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it has been written: "He shall give His angels charge concerning You, and they shall bear You on their hands, lest You strike Your foot against a stone." LXX-Psa. 90:11, 12; MT-Psa. 91:11, 12 7 Jesus said to him, Again it has been written: "You shall not tempt the Lord your God." Deut. 6:16 8 Again the Devil takes Him to a very high mountain, and he showed to Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to Him. I will give all these things to You if falling down, You will worship me. 10 Then Jesus said to him, Go, Satan! For it has been written: "You shall worship the Lord your God, and you shall serve Him only." Deut. 6:13 11 Then the Devil left Him. And behold! Angels came near and ministered to Him. 12 But Jesus hearing that John was delivered up, He withdrew into Galilee. 13 And leaving Nazareth, coming He lived at Capernaum, beside the sea in the districts of Zebulun and Naphtali, 14 so that might be fulfilled that spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: 15 "Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations: 16 the people sitting in the darkness saw a great Light; and to those sitting in the region and shadow of death, Light sprang up to them." Isa. 9:1, 2 17 From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, Repent! For the kingdom of Heaven has drawn near. 18 And walking beside the sea of Galilee, Jesus saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea; for they were fishers. 19 And He says to them, Come after Me, and I will make you fishers of men. 20 And leaving the nets, they immediately followed Him. 21 And going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee and his brother John in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets. And He called them. 22 And at once leaving the boat and their father, they followed Him. 23 And Jesus went around all Galilee teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every one of the illnesses among the people. 24 And the report of Him went out into all Syria. And they brought to Him all the ones having illness, suffering various diseases and torments, also those having been demon-possessed, and those having been moonstruck, and paralytics; and He healed them. 25 And many crowds followed Him from Galilee and Decapolis, and Jerusalem, and Judea, and beyond the Jordan.

Ephesians 6:17

17 Also, take "the helmet of salvation," and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God; Isa. 59:17 LXX-Isa. 11:4; MT-Isa. 49:2; LXX and MT-Hos. 6:5

Hebrews 4:12

12 For the word of God is living, and powerfully working, and sharper than every two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of both soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge of the thoughts and intentions of the heart;
