1 Because therefore that we are justified by faith we are at peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

Deuteronomy 28:1-68

1 If thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, the LORD will set thee on high above all nations of the earth. 2 And all these blessings shall come on thee and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. 3 Blessed shalt thou be in the town and blessed in the fields; 4 blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, the fruit of thy ground and the fruit of thy cattle, the fruit of thine oxen, and thy flocks of sheep; 5 blessed shall thine almery be and thy store. 6 Blessed shalt thou be, both when thou goest out, and blessed when thou comest in. 7 The LORD shall smite thine enemies that rise against thee before thy face. They shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways. 8 The LORD shall command the blessing to be with thee in thy store houses and in all that thou settest thine hand to, and will bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. 9 "The LORD shall make thee a holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God and walk in his ways. 10 And all nations of the earth shall see that thou art called after the name of the LORD, and they shall be afeared of thee. 11 And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, in the fruit of thy cattle and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee. 12 "The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, even the heaven, to give rain unto thy land in due season and to bless all the labours of thine hand. And thou shalt lend unto many nations, but shalt not need to borrow thyself. 13 And the LORD shall set thee before and not behind, and thou shalt be above only and not beneath: if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God which I command thee this day to keep and to do them. 14 And see that thou bow not from any of these words which I command thee this day, either to the righthand or to the left, that thou wouldest go after strange gods to serve them. 15 "But and if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God to keep and to do all his commandments and ordinances which I command thee this day; then all these curses shall come upon thee and overtake thee: 16 Cursed shalt thou be in the town, and cursed in the field; 17 cursed shall thine almery be and thy store. 18 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body and the fruit of thy land be and the fruit of thine oxen and the flocks of thy sheep. 19 And cursed shalt thou be when thou goest in, and when thou goest out. 20 And the LORD shall send upon thee cursing, going to nought, and complaining in all that thou settest thine hand to; whatsoever thou doest, until thou be destroyed and brought to nought quickly, because of the wickedness of thine inventions in that thou hast forsaken the LORD. 21 And the LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from the land whither thou goest to enjoy it. 22 And the LORD shall smite thee with swelling, with fevers, heat, burning, weathering, with smiting and blasting. And they shall follow thee, until thou perish. 23 "And the heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee, iron. 24 And the LORD shall turn the rain of the land unto powder and dust: even from heaven they shall come down upon thee, until thou be brought to nought. 25 And the LORD shall plague thee before thine enemies: Thou shalt come out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them, and shalt be scattered among all the kingdoms of the earth. 26 And thy carcass shall be meat unto all manner fowls of the air and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away. 27 "And the LORD will smite thee with the botches of Egypt and the hemorrhoids, scall and manginess, that thou shalt not be healed thereof. 28 And the LORD shall smite thee with madness, blindness and dazing of heart. 29 And thou shalt grope at noonday as the blind gropeth in darkness, and shalt not come to the right way. And thou shalt suffer violence and wrong all thy life long, and no man shall help thee. 30 Thou shalt be betrothed unto a wife, and another shall lie with her. Thou shalt build a house and another shall dwell therein. Thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not make it common. 31 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof. Thine ass shall be violently taken away even before thy face, and shall not be restored thee again. Thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and no man shall help thee. 32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another nation, and thine eyes shall see and daze upon them all day long, but shalt have no might in thine hand. 33 The fruit of thy land and all thy labours shall a nation eat, which thou knowest not; and thou shalt but suffer violence only and be oppressed always, 34 that thou shalt be clean beside thyself for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see. 35 "The LORD shall smite thee with a mischievous botch in the knees and legs, so that thou canst not be healed: even from the sole of the foot unto the top of the head. 36 The LORD shall bring both thee and thy king which thou hast set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, and there thou shalt serve strange gods: even wood and stone. 37 And thou shalt go to waste and be made an example and a jestingstock unto all nations whither the LORD shall carry thee. 38 Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in: for the grasshoppers shall destroy it. 39 Thou shalt plant a vineyard and dress it, but shalt neither drink of the wine neither gather of the grapes: for the worms shall eat it. 40 Thou shalt have olive trees in all thy coasts, but shalt not be anointed with the oil: for thine olive trees shall be rooted out. 41 Thou shalt get sons and daughters, but shalt not have them: for they shall be carried away captive. 42 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall be marred with blasting. 43 The strangers that are among you shall climb above thee up on high, and thou shalt come down beneath a-low. 44 He shall lend thee and thou shalt not lend him, he shall be before and thou behind. 45 "Moreover, all these curses shall come upon thee and shall follow thee and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed: because thou hearkenedest not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and ordinances which he commanded thee; 46 and they shall be upon thee as miracles and wonders and upon thy seed for ever. 47 And because thou servedest not the LORD thy God with joyfulness and with a good heart for the abundance of all things, 48 therefore thou shalt serve thine enemy which the LORD shall send upon thee: in hunger and thirst, in nakedness and in need of all things. And he shall put a yoke of iron upon thine neck, until he have brought thee to nought. 49 "And the LORD shall bring a nation upon thee from afar, even from the end of the world, as swift as an eagle flyeth: a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand; 50 a hard-favoured nation which shall not regard the person of the old nor have compassion on the young. 51 And he shall eat the fruit of thy land and the fruit of thy cattle until he have destroyed thee: so that he shall leave thee neither corn, wine, nor oil, neither the increase of thine oxen nor the flocks of thy sheep: until he have brought thee to nought. 52 And he shall keep thee in all thy cities, until thy high and strong walls be come down wherein thou trustedest, through all thy land. And he shall besiege thee in all thy cities throughout all thy land which the LORD thy God hath given thee. 53 "And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body; the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in that straitness and siege wherewith thine enemy shall besiege thee: 54 so that it shall grieve the man that is tender, and exceeding delicate among you, to look on his brother and upon his wife that lieth in his bosom and on the remnant of his children, which he hath yet left - 55 for fear of giving unto any of them of the flesh of his children, which he eateth, because he hath nought left him in that straitness and siege wherewith thine enemy shall besiege thee in all thy cities. 56 Yea, and the woman that is so tender and delicate among you that she dare not venture to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for softness and tenderness, shall be grieved to look on the husband that lieth in her bosom and on her son and on her daughter - 57 even because of the afterbirth, that is come out from between her legs, and because of her children which she hath borne, because she would eat them for need of all things; secretly, in the straitness and siege wherewith thine enemy shall besiege thee in thy cities. 58 "If thou wilt not be diligent to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, for to fear this glorious and fearful name of the LORD thy God: 59 the LORD will smite both thee and thy seed with wonderful plagues and with great plagues and of long continuance, 60 and with evil sicknesses and of long durance. Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt which thou wast afraid of, and they shall cleave unto thee. 61 Thereto, all manner sicknesses and all manner plagues which are not written in the book of this law, will the LORD bring upon thee until thou be come to nought. 62 And ye shall be left few in number, wheretofore ye were as the stars of heaven in multitude: because thou wouldest not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. 63 "And as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good and to multiply you: even so he will rejoice over you, to destroy you and to bring you to nought. And ye shall be wasted from off the land whither thou goest to enjoy it. 64 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all nations from the one end of the world unto the other, and there thou shalt serve strange gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known: even wood and stone. 65 And among these nations thou shalt be no small season, and yet shalt have no rest for the sole of thy foot. For the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart and dazing eyes and sorrow of mind. 66 And thy life shall hang before thee, and thou shalt fear both day and night and shalt have no trust in thy life. 67 In the morning thou shalt say, 'Would God it were night.' And at night thou shalt say, 'Would God it were morning' — for fear of thine heart which thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see. 68 "And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way which I bade thee that thou shouldest see it no more. And there ye shall be sold unto your enemies, for bondmen and bondwomen: and yet no man shall buy you."

John 15:5

5 I am the vine, and ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit. For without me can ye do nothing.

John 8:32

32 and ye shall know the truth: And the truth shall make you free."

Romans 8:1-39

1 There is, then, no damnation to them which are in Christ Jesus: which walk not after the flesh but after the spirit: 2 For the law of the spirit, that bringeth life through Jesus Christ, hath delivered me from the law of sin, and death: 3 For what the law could not do, inasmuch as it was weak because of the flesh — that performed God, and sent his son in the similitude of sinful flesh, and by sin damned sin in the flesh; 4 that the righteousness required of the law might be fulfilled in us, which walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit. 5 For they that are carnal, are carnally minded; But they that are spiritual are spiritually minded. 6 To be carnally minded is death; But to be spiritually minded is life, and peace: 7 because that the fleshly mind is enmity against God: For it is not obedient to the law of God, neither can be. 8 So then, they that are given to the flesh, cannot please God. 9 But ye are not given to the flesh; But to the spirit: If so be that the spirit of God dwell in you. If there be any man that hath not the spirit of Christ, the same is none of his. 10 If Christ be in you: the body is dead, because of sin; But the spirit is life for righteousness' sake. 11 Wherefore, if the spirit of him that raised up Jesus from death, dwell in you: even he that raised up Christ from death, shall quicken your mortal bodies, because that this spirit dwelleth in you. 12 Therefore, brethren, we are now debtors; not to the flesh, to live after the flesh: 13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye must die. But if ye mortify the deeds of the body, by the help of the spirit, ye shall live, 14 for as many as are led by the spirit of God: they are the sons of God. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage to fear anymore, but ye have received the spirit of adoption whereby we cry, "Abba father." 16 The same spirit certifieth our spirit that we are the sons of God. 17 If we be sons, we are also heirs: the heirs, I mean, of God: and heirs annexed with Christ. If so be that we suffer together, that we may be glorified together. 18 For I suppose that the afflictions of this life are not worthy of the glory which shall be showed upon us. 19 Also, the fervent desire of the creatures abideth looking when the sons of God shall appear; 20 because the creatures are subdued to vanity against their will: but for his will which subdueth them in hope. 21 For the very creatures shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption, into the glorious liberty of the sons of God. 22 For we know that every creature groaneth with us also, and travaileth in pain even unto this time. 23 Not they only, but even we also: which have the first fruits of the spirit mourn in ourselves and wait for the adoption and look for the deliverance of our bodies. 24 For we are saved by hope. But hope that is seen is no hope. For how can a man hope for that which he seeth? 25 But and if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience abide for it. 26 Likewise, the spirit also helpeth our infirmities. For we know not, what to desire as we ought: but the spirit maketh intercession mightily for us with groanings which cannot be expressed with tongue. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the meaning of the spirit: for he maketh intercession for the saints according to the pleasure of God. 28 For we know well that all things work for the best unto them that love God, which also are called of purpose. 29 For those which he knew before, he also ordained before, that they should be like fashioned unto the shape of his son, that he might be the first begotten son among many brethren. 30 Moreover, which he appointed before, them he also called; and which he called, them also he justified; which he justified, them he also glorified. 31 What shall we then say unto these things? if God be on our side: who can be against us? 32 Which spared not his own son, but gave him for us all: How shall he not with him give us all things also? 33 Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's chosen? It is God that justifieth: 34 who then shall condemn? It is Christ which is dead; Yea rather which is risen again, which is also on the righthand of God and maketh intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of God? Shall tribulation? Or anguish? Or persecution, other hunger? Other nakedness? Other peril? Other sword? 36 As it is written, "For thy sake are we killed all day long, and are counted as sheep appointed to be slain." 37 Nevertheless, in all these things we overcome strongly through his help that loved us. 38 Yea and I am sure that neither death, neither life, neither angels; nor rule, neither power, neither things present, neither things to come, 39 neither height, neither lowth, neither any other creature shall be able to depart us from the love of God, showed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Philippians 4:8

8 Furthermore brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things pertain to love, whatsoever things are of honest report, if there be any virtuous thing, if there be any laudable thing, those same have ye in your mind,

Exodus 20:1-26

1 And God spake all these words, and said, 2 "I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt and out of the house of bondage. 3 Thou shalt have none other gods in my sight. 4 "Thou shalt make thee no graven image, neither any similitude that is in heaven above, either in the earth beneath, or in the water that is beneath the earth. 5 See that thou neither bow thyself unto them neither serve them: for I, the LORD thy God, am a jealous God, and visit the sin of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me: 6 and yet show mercy unto thousands among them that love me and keep my commandments. 7 "Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. 8 "Remember the Sabbath day that thou sanctify it. 9 Six days mayest thou labour and do all that thou hast to do: 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God, in it thou shalt do no manner work: neither thou nor thy son, nor thy daughter, neither thy manservant nor thy maidservant, neither thy cattle neither yet the stranger that is within thy gates. 11 For in six days the LORD made both heaven and earth and the sea and all that in them is and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. 12 "Honour thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. 13 "Thou shalt not kill. 14 "Thou shalt not break wedlock. 15 "Thou shalt not steal. 16 "Thou shalt bear no false witness against thy neighbor. 17 "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house: neither shalt covet thy neighbor's wife, his manservant, his maid, his ox, his ass or ought that is his." 18 And all the people saw the thunder and the lightning and the noise of the horn, and how the mountain smoked. 19 And when the people saw it, they removed and stood afar off and said unto Moses, "Talk thou with us, and we will hear; but let not God talk with us, lest we die." 20 And Moses said unto the people, "Fear not, for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be among you that ye sin not." 21 And the people stood afar off, and Moses went into the thick cloud where God was. 22 And the LORD said unto Moses, "Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, 'Ye have seen how that I have talked with you from out of heaven. 23 Ye shall not make therefore with me gods of silver nor gods of gold: in no wise shall ye do it. 24 An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me and thereon offer thy burnt offerings and thy peace offerings, and thy sheep and thine oxen. And in all places where I shall put the remembrance of my name, thither I will come unto thee and bless thee. 25 But and if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, see thou make it not of hewed stone, for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou shalt pollute it. 26 Moreover thou shalt not go up with steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not showed thereon.'"

Matthew 6:24

24 No man can serve two masters: For either he shall hate the one, and love the other; or else he shall lean to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

2 Corinthians 10:4-5

4 For the weapons of our war are not carnal things, but things mighty in God to cast down strongholds; 5 wherewith we overthrow imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bring into captivity all understanding to the obedience of Christ,

Mark 7:20-23

20 And he said, "That defileth a man which cometh out of a man. 21 For from within even out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts: adultery, fornication, murder, 22 theft, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, uncleanness, and a wicked eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23 All these evil things come from within, and defile a man."

Romans 5:3-4

3 Neither do we so, only: but also we rejoice in tribulation: For we know that tribulation bringeth patience, 4 patience bringeth experience, experience bringeth hope,

Mark 12:29-31

29 Jesus answered him, "The first of all the commandments is, 'Hear, Israel, the Lord God is One Lord. 30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength.' This is the first commandment. 31 And the second is like unto this, 'Thou shalt love thy neighbor, as thyself.' There is none other commandment greater than these."

1 John 2:15-17

15 See that ye love not the world, nor the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world — as the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of goods — are not of the father: but of the world. 17 And the world vanisheth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God, abideth ever.
