Bible verses about "morality" | ABU

Mark 7:20-23

20 And he said: That which comes out of the man, that defiles the man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, come forth evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, wantonness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. 23 All these evil things come forth from within, and defile the man.

Romans 13:8-10

8 Owe no one anything, but to love one another; for he that loves another has fulfilled the law. 9 For this: Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not covet; and if there is any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. 10 Love works no ill to one's neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you; but ye were washed, but ye were sanctified, but ye were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Romans 13:1-7

1 LET every soul submit himself to the higher powers. For there is no power but from God; the powers that be have been ordained by God. 2 So that he who resists the power, resists the ordinance of God; and they that resist will receive to themselves condemnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. And dost thou wish not to be afraid of the power? Do that which is good, and thou wilt have praise from it; 4 for he is God's minister to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he bears not the sword in vain; for he is God's minister, an avenger for wrath to him that does evil. 5 Wherefore it is necessary to submit yourselves, not only because of the wrath, but also for conscience' sake. 6 For, for this cause ye pay tribute also; for they are God's ministers, attending continually to this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their dues; tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor.
