Bible verses about "etiquette" | RKJNT

Matthew 7:1-29

1 Judge not, that you may not be judged. 2 For in the manner you judge, you shall be judged: and with the measure you use, it shall be measured to you. 3 And why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not consider the beam that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, Let me pull the speck out of your eye; and, behold, a beam is in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first remove the beam from your own eye; and then you shall see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye. 6 Do not give that which is holy to dogs, nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces. 7 Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you: 8 For every one who asks receives; and he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks it shall be opened. 9 Or what man is there among you, whom, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him? 12 Therefore, all things that you would have men do for you, do for them: for this is the law and the prophets. 13 Enter in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there are who enter in by it: 14 But small is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads to life, and few there are who find it. 15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a bad tree brings forth bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is cut down, and cast into the fire. 20 Therefore, by their fruits you shall know them. 21 Not every one who says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name cast out devils? and in your name done many miracles? 23 And then I will declare to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you who work iniquity. 24 Therefore, whoever hears these words of mine, and does them, will be like a wise man, who built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it did not fall: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one who hears these words of mine, and does not do them, is like a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. 28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these sayings, the multitudes were astonished at his teaching: 29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Matthew 15:1-39

1 Then Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem, saying, 2 Why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they do not wash their hands when they eat bread. 3 But he answered and said to them, Why do you transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? 4 For God commanded, saying, Honour your father and mother: and, He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death. 5 But you say, Whoever shall say to his father or his mother, Whatever of mine might benefit you is a gift to God; 6 Then he is free not to honour his father or his mother. Thus have you made the commandment of God void by your tradition. 7 You hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people honours me with their lips; but their hearts are far from me. 9 But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 10 And he called the multitude, and said to them, Hear, and understand: 11 Not that which goes into the mouth defiles a man; but that which comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man. 12 Then his disciples came, and said to him, Do you know that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? 13 But he answered and said, Every plant which my heavenly Father has not planted shall be rooted up. 14 Let them alone: they are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. 15 Then Peter answered and said to him, Explain to us this parable. 16 And Jesus said, Are you also still without understanding? 17 Do you not yet understand, that whatever enters in at the mouth goes into the belly, and is eliminated? 18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, sexual immorality, thefts, false witness, slanders: 20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man. 21 Then Jesus went from there, and departed to the districts of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of that region, and cried to him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. 23 But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came and begged him, saying, Send her away; for she cries after us. 24 But he answered and said, I have been sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 25 Then she came and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. 26 But he answered and said, It is not proper to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. 27 And she said, True, Lord: yet the dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. 28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, O woman, great is your faith: be it done for you as you wish. And her daughter was made well from that very hour. 29 And Jesus departed from there, and came near to the sea of Galilee; and went up on a mountain, and sat down there. 30 And great multitudes came to him, having with them those who were lame, crippled, blind, dumb, and many others, and put them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them, 31 So that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb speaking, the crippled made whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing: and they glorified the God of Israel. 32 Then Jesus called his disciples to himself, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they have been with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint on the way. 33 And his disciples said to him, Where could we get enough bread in the wilderness to fill so great a multitude? 34 And Jesus said to them, How many loaves do you have? And they said, Seven, and a few little fish. 35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. 36 And he took the seven loaves and the fish, and gave thanks, and broke them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 37 And they all ate, and were filled: and they took up the broken pieces that were left, seven baskets full. 38 And those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children. 39 And he sent away the multitude, and got into the boat, and came to the region of Magadan.

1 Corinthians 10:23

23 All things are lawful for me, but not all things are beneficial: all things are lawful for me, but not all things are constructive.

Luke 6:37

37 Do not judge, and you shall not be judged: do not condemn, and you shall not be condemned: forgive, and you shall be forgiven:

John 4:23-24

23 But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship him. 24 God is Spirit: and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Romans 14:16

16 Therefore, do not let your good be spoken of as evil:

1 Timothy 2:1-15

1 Therefore I urge, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all who are in authority; that we may lead quiet and peaceable lives in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who desires all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6 Who gave himself as a ransom for all, the testimony at the proper time. 7 And for this I have been appointed a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ and am not lying;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. 8 Therefore, I want men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands, without anger or dissension. 9 In like manner also, let women adorn themselves in proper apparel, modestly and soberly; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly attire; 10 But with good works, as becomes women professing godliness. 11 Let a woman learn in quietness and full submission. 12 I do not allow a woman to teach, or to have authority over a man; she must keep silent. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve; 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. 15 Yet women shall be kept safe through childbirth, if they continue in faith and love and holiness with propriety.

Colossians 3:12

12 Therefore, as the chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on hearts of mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience;

Philippians 4:5

5 Let your forbearing spirit be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.

1 Corinthians 14:40

40 But let all things be done decently and in order.

Colossians 4:5-6

5 Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, making the most of the time. 6 Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer every man.
