Matthew 4:1-25

1 THEN Jesus was carried away by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness, to be tempted by the adversary. 2 So he fasted forty days and forty nights; but at last he was hungry. 3 And the tempter drew near and said to him, If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread. 4 But he answered and said, It is written, that it is not by bread alone that man can live, but by every word which comes from the mouth of God. 5 Then the adversary took him to the holy city, and he made him to stand up on the pinnacle of the temple. 6 And he said to him, If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down; for it is written, that he will command his angels concerning you, and they will bear you up on their hands, so that even your foot may not strike a stone. 7 Jesus said to him, Again it is written, that you shall not try out the Lord your God. 8 Again the adversary took him to a very high mountain, and he showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to him, All of these I will give to you, if you will fall down and worship me. 10 Then Jesus said to him, Go away, Satan, for it is written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve. 11 Then the adversary left him alone; and behold the angels drew near and ministered unto him. 12 Now when Jesus heard that John was delivered up, he departed to Galilee. 13 And he left Nazareth, and came and settled in Capernaum, by the seaside, within the borders of Zabulon and of Napthali. 14 So that it might be fulfilled, which was said by the prophet Isaiah, who said, 15 O land of Zabulon, O land of Napthali, the way to the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles! 16 The people who dwelt in darkness saw a great light, and those who settled in the country and in the midst of the shadows of death, light shone on them. 17 From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is coming near. 18 And while he was walking by the shore of the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter and his brother Andrew, who were casting nets into the sea, for they were fishermen. 19 And Jesus said to them, Come after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. 20 So they immediately left their nets and went after him. 21 And when he left that place he saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee and his brother John, in a ship with Zebedee their father, repairing their nets; and Jesus called them. 22 So they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him. 23 And Jesus travelled throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and sickness among the people. 24 And his fame was heard throughout Syria; so they brought to him all who were badly afflicted with divers sickness, and those who were tormented with pains, and the insane, and the epileptics, and the cripples; and he healed them. 25 So large crowds followed him from Galilee, and from the ten cities, and from Jerusalem and from Judaea, and from across the Jordan.

Luke 22:36

36 He said to them, From now on he who has purses, let him take them, and the bag likewise; and he who has no sword, let him sell his robe and buy for himself a sword.

Luke 10:30-37

30 Jesus said to him, There was a man who went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and the bandits attacked him, and robbed him, and beat him, and left him with little life remaining in him, and they went away. 31 And it chanced a priest was going down that road; and he saw him and passed on. 32 And likewise a Levite came and arrived at that place, and saw him and passed on. 33 But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion on him. 34 And he came to him and bound up his wounds, and poured on them wine and oil; and he put him on his own ass, and brought him to the inn, and took care of him. 35 And in the morning, he took out two pennies and gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, Take care of him; and whatever you spend more, when I return, I will give it to you. 36 Who therefore of these three, appears to you, became neighbor to him who fell into the hands of the bandits? 37 He said, The one who had compassion on him. Jesus said to him, You go also, and do the same.

Mark 1:17-18

17 And Jesus said to them, Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men. 18 And straightway they left their nets, and went after him.

Matthew 5:1-48

1 WHEN Jesus saw the crowds, he went up to the mountain; and as he sat down, his disciples drew near to him. 2 And he opened his mouth and taught them, and he said, 3 Blessed are the poor in pride, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted. 5 Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. 6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice, for they shall be well satisfied. 7 Blessed are the merciful, for to them shall be mercy. 8 Blessed are those who are pure in their hearts, for they shall see God. 9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. 10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for the sake of justice, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are you, when they reproach you and persecute you, and speak against you every kind of bad word, falsely, for my sake, 12 Then be glad and rejoice, for your reward is increased in heaven; for in this very manner they persecuted the prophets who were before you. 13 You are indeed the salt of the earth; but if the salt should lose its savor, with what could it be salted? It would not be worth anything, but to be thrown outside and to be trodden down by men. 14 You are indeed the light of the world; a city that is built upon a mountain cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp holder, so it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light thus shine before men, so that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. 17 Do not expect that I have come to weaken the law or the prophets; I have not come to weaken, but to fulfil. 18 For truly I tell you, Until heaven and earth pass away, not even one yoth * or a dash shall pass away from the law until all of it is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore tries to weaken even one of these smallest commandments, and teaches men so, he shall be regarded as small in the kingdom of heaven; but anyone who observes and teaches them, he shall be regarded as great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. 21 You have heard that it was said to those who were before you, You shall not kill, and whoever kills is guilty before the court. 22 But I say to you, that whoever becomes angry with his brother for no reason, is guilty before the court: and whoever should say to his brother, Raca (which means, I spit on you) is guilty before the congregation; and whoever says to his brother, you are a nurse maid, is condemned to hell fire. 23 If it should happen therefore that while you are presenting your offering upon the altar, and right there you remember that your brother has any grievance against you, 24 Leave your offering there upon the altar, and first go and make peace with your brother, and then come back and present your offering. 25 Try to get reconciled with your accuser promptly, while you are going on the road with him; for your accuser might surrender you to the judge, and the judge would commit you to the jailer, and you will be cast into prison. 26 Truly I say to you, that you would never come out thence until you had paid the last cent. 27 You have heard that it is said, You shall not commit adultery. 28 But I say to you, that whoever looks at a woman with the desire to covet her, has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye should cause you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away from you; for it is better for you to lose one of your members, and not all your body fall into hell. 30 And if your right hand should cause you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away from you; for it is better for you to lose one of your members, and not all your body fall into hell. 31 It has been said that whoever divorces his wife, must give her the divorce papers. 32 But I say to you, that whoever divorces his wife, except for fornication, causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is separated but not divorced, commits adultery. 33 Again you have heard it was said to them who were before you, that you shall not lie in your oaths, but entrust your oaths to the Lord. 34 But I say to you, never swear; neither by heaven, because it is GodÆs throne; 35 Nor by the earth, for it is a stool under his feet; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of a great king. 36 Neither shall you swear by your own head, because you cannot create in it a single black or white hair. 37 But let your words be yes, yes, and no, no; for anything which adds to these is a deception. 38 You have heard that it is said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. 39 But I say to you, that you should not resist evil; but whoever strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if anyone wishes to sue you at the court and take away your shirt, let him have your robe also. 41 Whoever compels you to carry a burden for a mile, go with him two. 42 Whoever asks from you, give him; and whoever wishes to borrow from you, do not refuse him. 43 You have heard that it is said, Be kind to your friend, and hate your enemy. 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies, and bless anyone who curses you, and do good to anyone who hates you, and pray for them who carry you away by force and persecute you, 45 So that you may become sons of your Father who is in heaven, who causes his sun to shine upon the good and upon the bad, and who pours down his rain upon the just and upon the unjust. 46 For if you love only those who love you, what reward will you have? Do not even the publicans do the same thing? 47 And if you salute only your brothers, what is it more that you do? Do not even the publicans do the same thing? 48 Therefore, you become perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

Luke 10:27

27 He answered and said to him, You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.

John 14:26

26 But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom my Father will send in my name, he will teach you everything, and remind you of everything which I tell you.

John 14:15

15 If you love me, then obey my commandments.

Romans 14:12

12 So then every one of us shall answer for himself to God.
