John 3:16

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whosoever believes on him may not perish, but have life eternal.

Luke 16:19-31

19 Now there was a rich man and he was clothed in purple and fine linen, making good cheer in splendour every day. 20 And [there was] a poor man, by name Lazarus, [who] was laid at his gateway full of sores, 21 and desiring to be filled with the crumbs which fell from the table of the rich man; but the dogs also coming licked his sores. 22 And it came to pass that the poor man died, and that he was carried away by the angels into the bosom of Abraham. And the rich man also died and was buried. 23 And in hades lifting up his eyes, being in torments, he sees Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he crying out said, Father Abraham, have compassion on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am suffering in this flame. 25 But Abraham said, Child, recollect that *thou* hast fully received thy good things in thy lifetime, and likewise Lazarus evil things. But now he is comforted here, and *thou* art in suffering. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm is fixed, so that those who desire to pass hence to you cannot, nor do they who [desire to cross] from there pass over unto us. 27 And he said, I beseech thee then, father, that thou wouldest send him to the house of my father, 28 for I have five brothers, so that he may earnestly testify to them, that they also may not come to this place of torment. 29 But Abraham says to him, They have Moses and the prophets: let them hear them. 30 But he said, Nay, father Abraham, but if one from the dead should go to them, they will repent. 31 And he said to him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, not even if one rise from among [the] dead will they be persuaded.

Ephesians 6:12

12 because our struggle is not against blood and flesh, but against principalities, against authorities, against the universal lords of this darkness, against spiritual [power] of wickedness in the heavenlies.

Ephesians 6:1

1 Children, obey your parents in [the] Lord, for this is just.

1 Peter 2:1-25

1 Laying aside therefore all malice and all guile and hypocrisies and envyings and all evil speakings, 2 as newborn babes desire earnestly the pure mental milk of the word, that by it ye may grow up to salvation, 3 if indeed ye have tasted that the Lord [is] good. 4 To whom coming, a living stone, cast away indeed as worthless by men, but with God chosen, precious, 5 yourselves also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 6 Because it is contained in the scripture: Behold, I lay in Zion a corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believes on him shall not be put to shame. 7 To you therefore who believe [is] the preciousness; but to the disobedient, the stone which the builders cast away as worthless, this is become head of [the] corner, 8 and a stone of stumbling and rock of offence; [who] stumble at the word, being disobedient to which also they have been appointed. 9 But *ye* [are] a chosen race, a kingly priesthood, a holy nation, a people for a possession, that ye might set forth the excellencies of him who has called you out of darkness to his wonderful light; 10 who once [were] not a people, but now God`s people; who were not enjoying mercy, but now have found mercy. 11 Beloved, I exhort [you], as strangers and sojourners, to abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; 12 having your conversation honest among the Gentiles, that [as to that] in which they speak against you as evildoers, they may through [your] good works, [themselves] witnessing [them], glorify God in [the] day of visitation. 13 Be in subjection [therefore] to every human institution for the Lord`s sake; whether to [the] king as supreme, 14 or to rulers as sent by him, for vengeance on evildoers, and praise to them that do well. 15 Because so is the will of God, that by well-doing ye put to silence the ignorance of senseless men; 16 as free, and not as having liberty as a cloak of malice, but as God`s bondmen. 17 Shew honour to all, love the brotherhood, fear God, honour the king. 18 Servants, [be] subject with all fear to your masters, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the ill-tempered. 19 For this [is] acceptable, if one, for conscience sake towards God, endure griefs, suffering unjustly. 20 For what glory [is it], if sinning and being buffeted ye shall bear [it]? but if, doing good and suffering, ye shall bear [it], this is acceptable with God. 21 For to this have ye been called; for Christ also has suffered for you, leaving you a model that ye should follow in his steps: 22 who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth; 23 who, [when] reviled, reviled not again; [when] suffering, threatened not; but gave [himself] over into the hands of him who judges righteously; 24 who himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, in order that, being dead to sins, we may live to righteousness: by whose stripes ye have been healed. 25 For ye were going astray as sheep, but have now returned to the shepherd and overseer of your souls.

Proverbs 16:28-30

28 A false man soweth contention; and a talebearer separateth very friends. 29 A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into a way that is not good. 30 He that shutteth his eyes, [it is] to devise froward things; biting his lips, he bringeth evil to pass.

Proverbs 24:1-34

1 Be not thou envious of evil men, neither desire to be with them; 2 for their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief. 3 Through wisdom is a house built, and by understanding it is established; 4 and by knowledge are the chambers filled with all precious and pleasant substance. 5 A wise man is strong, and a man of knowledge increaseth strength. 6 For with good advice shalt thou make thy war; and in the multitude of counsellors there is safety. 7 Wisdom is too high for a fool: he will not open his mouth in the gate. 8 He that deviseth to do evil shall be called a master of intrigues. 9 The purpose of folly is sin, and the scorner is an abomination to men. 10 [If] thou losest courage in the day of trouble, thy strength is small. 11 Deliver them that are taken forth unto death, and withdraw not from them that stagger to slaughter. 12 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not, will not he that weigheth the hearts consider it? And he that preserveth thy soul, he knoweth it; and he rendereth to man according to his work. 13 Eat honey, my son, for it is good; and a honeycomb is sweet to thy taste: 14 so consider wisdom for thy soul; if thou hast found it, there shall be a result, and thine expectation shall not be cut off. 15 Lay not wait, O wicked [man], against the dwelling of the righteous; lay not waste his resting-place. 16 For the righteous falleth seven times, and riseth up again; but the wicked stumble into disaster. 17 Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thy heart be glad when he stumbleth; 18 lest Jehovah see it, and it be evil in his sight, and he turn away his anger from him. 19 Fret not thyself because of evil-doers, [and] be not envious of the wicked: 20 for there shall be no future to the evil [man]; the lamp of the wicked shall be put out. 21 My son, fear Jehovah and the king: meddle not with them that are given to change. 22 For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both? 23 These things also come from the wise. It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment. 24 He that saith unto the wicked, Thou art righteous, peoples shall curse him, nations shall abhor him; 25 but to them that rebuke [him] shall be delight, and a good blessing cometh upon them. 26 He kisseth the lips who giveth a right answer. 27 Prepare thy work without, and put thy field in order, and afterwards build thy house. 28 Be not a witness against thy neighbour without cause; and wouldest thou deceive with thy lips? 29 Say not, I will do so to him as he hath done to me, I will render to the man according to his work. 30 I went by the field of a sluggard, and by the vineyard of a man void of understanding; 31 and lo, it was all grown over with thistles, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and its stone wall was broken down. 32 Then I looked, I took it to heart; I saw, I received instruction: 33 -- A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest! 34 So shall thy poverty come [as] a roving plunderer, and thy penury as an armed man.

Matthew 5:9

9 Blessed the peace-makers, for *they* shall be called sons of God.

Romans 12:18

18 if possible, as far as depends on you, living in peace with all men;

Proverbs 20:3

3 It is an honour for a man to cease from strife; but every fool rusheth into it.

Matthew 5:44

44 But *I* say unto you, Love your enemies, [bless those who curse you,] do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who [insult you and] persecute you,

Proverbs 6:16-19

16 These six [things] doth Jehovah hate, yea, seven are an abomination unto him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood; 18 a heart that deviseth wicked imaginations; feet that are swift in running to mischief; 19 a false witness that uttereth lies, and he that soweth discords among brethren.

Romans 16:17

17 But I beseech you, brethren, to consider those who create divisions and occasions of falling, contrary to the doctrine which *ye* have learnt, and turn away from them.
