Leviticus 18:1-30

1 And LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Speak to the sons of Israel, and say to them, I am LORD your God. 3 Ye shall not do after the doings of the land of Egypt, in which ye dwelt, and ye shall not do after the doings of the land of Canaan, where I bring you, nor shall ye walk in their statutes. 4 Ye shall do my ordinances, and ye shall keep my statutes, to walk therein. I am LORD your God. 5 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my ordinances, which if a man does, he shall live in them. I am LORD. 6 None of you shall approach to any who are near of kin to him, to uncover nakedness. I am LORD. 7 The nakedness of thy father, even the nakedness of thy mother, thou shall not uncover. She is thy mother. Thou shall not uncover her nakedness, 8 the nakedness of thy father's wife. It is thy father's nakedness. 9 The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or the daughter of thy mother, whether born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shall not uncover. 10 The nakedness of thy son's daughter, or of thy daughter's daughter, even their nakedness thou shall not uncover, for theirs is thine own nakedness. 11 The nakedness of thy father's wife's daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shall not uncover her nakedness. 12 Thou shall not uncover the nakedness of thy father's sister. She is thy father's near kinswoman. 13 Thou shall not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's sister, for she is thy mother's near kinswoman. 14 Thou shall not uncover the nakedness of thy father's brother. Thou shall not approach to his wife. She is thine aunt. 15 Thou shall not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter-in-law. She is thy son's wife. Thou shall not uncover her nakedness. 16 Thou shall not uncover the nakedness of thy brother's wife. It is thy brother's nakedness. 17 Thou shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter. Thou shall not take her son's daughter, or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness. They are near kinswomen. It is iniquity. 18 And thou shall not take a wife in addition to her sister, to be a rival [to her], to uncover her nakedness, besides the other in her life-time. 19 And thou shall not approach to a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is impure by her uncleanness. 20 And thou shall not lay carnally with thy neighbor's wife, to defile thyself with her. 21 And thou shall not give any of thy seed to make them pass through [the fire] to Molech, neither shall thou profane the name of thy God. I am LORD. 22 Thou shall not lay with mankind, as with womankind. It is abomination. 23 And thou shall not lay with any beast to defile thyself with it, nor shall any woman stand before a beast, to lay down with it. It is a perversion. 24 Do not defile ye yourselves in any of these things. For in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out from before you, 25 and the land is defiled. Therefore I visit the iniquity of it upon it, and the land vomits out her inhabitants. 26 Ye therefore shall keep my statutes and my ordinances, and shall not do any of these abominations, neither the home-born, nor the stranger that sojourns among you, 27 (for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and the land is defiled), 28 that the land not vomit you out also, when ye defile it, as it vomited out the nation that was before you. 29 For whoever shall do any of these abominations, even the souls that do them shall be cut off from among their people. 30 Therefore ye shall keep my charge, that ye not practice any of these abominable customs, which were practiced before you, and that ye not defile yourselves in it. I am LORD your God.

Romans 1:26-27

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

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.

1 Corinthians 6:9

9 Or know ye not that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not led astray. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate men, nor homosexuals,

Romans 13:10-14

10 Love works no evil to the neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of law. 11 And this, knowing the time, that the hour is now for us to awake out of sleep. For our salvation is now nearer than when we believed. 12 The night has advanced and the day has approached. Let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the weapons of light. 13 Let us walk decently as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in beddings and wantonness, not in strife and envy. 14 But clothe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no forethought for lusts of the flesh.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9 Or know ye not that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not led astray. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate men, nor homosexuals, 10 nor greedy men, nor thieves, nor drunkards, nor the slanderous, nor the predatory will inherit the kingdom of God. 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.

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.
