Isaiah 1:1-31

1 The Visions of Isaiah son of Amoz, that he hath seen concerning Judah and Jerusalem, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, Hezekiah, kings of Judah.
2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth, For Jehovah hath spoken: Sons I have nourished and brought up, And they—they transgressed against Me. 3 An ox hath known its owner, And an ass the crib of its master, Israel hath not known, My people hath not understood. 4 Ah, sinning nation, a people heavy with iniquity, A seed of evil doers, sons—corrupters! They have forsaken Jehovah, They have despised the Holy One of Israel, They have gone away backward. 5 Wherefore are ye stricken any more? Ye do add apostasy! Every head is become diseased, and every heart is sick. 6 From the sole of the foot—unto the head, There is no soundness in it, Wound, and bruise, and fresh smiting! They have not been closed nor bound, Nor have they softened with ointment. 7 Your land is a desolation, your cities burnt with fire, Your ground, before you strangers are consuming it, And a desolation as overthrown by strangers! 8 And left hath been the daughter of Zion, As a booth in a vineyard, As a lodge in a place of cucumbers—as a city besieged. 9 Unless Jehovah of Hosts had left to us a remnant, Shortly—as Sodom we had been, To Gomorrah we had been like!
10 Hear the word of Jehovah, ye rulers of Sodom, Give ear to the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah, 11 `Why to Me the abundance of your sacrifices? saith Jehovah, I have been satiated with burnt-offerings of rams, And fat of fatlings; And blood of bullocks, and lambs, And he-goats I have not desired. 12 When ye come in to appear before Me, Who hath required this of your hand, To trample My courts? 13 Add not to bring in a vain present, Incense—an abomination it is to Me, New moon, and sabbath, calling of convocation! Rendure not iniquity—and a restraint! 14 Your new moons and your set seasons hath My soul hated, They have been upon me for a burden, I have been weary of bearing. 15 And in your spreading forth your hands, I hide mine eyes from you, Also when ye increase prayer, I do not hear, Your hands of blood have been full.
16 Wash ye, make ye pure, Turn aside the evil of your doings, from before Mine eyes, Cease to do evil, learn to do good. 17 Seek judgment, make happy the oppressed, Judge the fatherless, strive for the widow. 18 Come, I pray you, and we reason, saith Jehovah, If your sins are as scarlet, as snow they shall be white, If they are red as crimson, as wool they shall be! 19 If ye are willing, and have hearkened, The good of the land ye consume, 20 And if ye refuse, and have rebelled, By the sword ye are consumed, For the mouth of Jehovah hath spoken.
21 How hath a faithful city become a harlot? I have filled it with judgment, Righteousness lodgeth in it—now murderers. 22 Thy silver hath become dross, Thy drink polluted with water. 23 Thy princes are apostates, and companions of thieves, Every one loving a bribe, and pursuing rewards, The fatherless they judge not, And the plea of the widow cometh not to them. 24 Therefore—the affirmation of the Lord—Jehovah of Hosts, the Mighty One of Israel: Ah, I am eased of Mine adversaries, And I am avenged of Mine enemies, 25 And I turn back My hand upon thee, And I refine as purity thy dross, And I turn aside all thy tin, 26 And I give back thy judges as at the first, And thy counsellors as in the beginning, After this thou art called, `A city of righteousness—a faithful city.' 27 Zion in judgment is redeemed, And her captivity in righteousness. 28 And the destruction of transgressors and sinners is together, And those forsaking Jehovah are consumed. 29 For men are ashamed because of the oaks That ye have desired, And ye are confounded because of the gardens That ye have chosen. 30 For ye are as an oak whose leaf is fading, And as a garden that hath no water. 31 And the strong hath been for tow, And his work for a spark, And burned have both of them together, And there is none quenching!

Exodus 20:5

5 Thou dost not bow thyself to them, nor serve them: for I, Jehovah thy God, am a zealous God, charging iniquity of fathers on sons, on the third generation, and on the fourth, of those hating Me,

Psalms 23:1-6

1 A Psalm of David. Jehovah is my shepherd, I do not lack, 2 In pastures of tender grass He causeth me to lie down, By quiet waters He doth lead me. 3 My soul He refresheth, He leadeth me in paths of righteousness, For His name's sake, 4 Also—when I walk in a valley of death-shade, I fear no evil, for Thou art with me, Thy rod and Thy staff—they comfort me. 5 Thou arrangest before me a table, Over-against my adversaries, Thou hast anointed with oil my head, My cup is full! 6 Only—goodness and kindness pursue me, All the days of my life, And my dwelling is in the house of Jehovah, For a length of days!

Psalms 91:1-16

1 He who is dwelling In the secret place of the Most High, In the shade of the Mighty lodgeth habitually, 2 He is saying of Jehovah, `My refuge, and my bulwark, my God, I trust in Him,' 3 For He delivereth thee from the snare of a fowler, From a calamitous pestilence. 4 With His pinion He covereth thee over, And under His wings thou dost trust, A shield and buckler is His truth. 5 Thou art not afraid of fear by night, Of arrow that flieth by day, 6 Of pestilence in thick darkness that walketh, Of destruction that destroyeth at noon, 7 There fall at thy side a thousand, And a myriad at thy right hand, Unto thee it cometh not nigh. 8 But with thine eyes thou lookest, And the reward of the wicked thou seest,
9 (For Thou, O Jehovah, art my refuge,) The Most High thou madest thy habitation. 10 Evil happeneth not unto thee, And a plague cometh not near thy tent, 11 For His messengers He chargeth for thee, To keep thee in all thy ways, 12 On the hands they bear thee up, Lest thou smite against a stone thy foot. 13 On lion and asp thou treadest, Thou trampest young lion and dragon. 14 Because in Me he hath delighted, I also deliver him—I set him on high, Because he hath known My name. 15 He doth call Me, and I answer him, I am with him in distress, I deliver him, and honour him. 16 With length of days I satisfy him, And I cause him to look on My salvation!

Ezekiel 18:20

20 The soul that doth sin—it doth die. A son doth not bear of the iniquity of the father, And a father doth not bear of the iniquity of the son, The righteousness of the righteous is on him, And the wickedness of the wicked is on him.

2 Timothy 2:22-26

22 and the youthful lusts flee thou, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace, with those calling upon the Lord out of a pure heart; 23 and the foolish and uninstructed questions be avoiding, having known that they beget strife, 24 and a servant of the Lord it behoveth not to strive, but to be gentle unto all, apt to teach, patient under evil, 25 in meekness instructing those opposing—if perhaps God may give to them repentance to an acknowledging of the truth, 26 and they may awake out of the devil's snare, having been caught by him at his will.

1 Thessalonians 4:11-12

11 and to study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we did command you, 12 that ye may walk becomingly unto those without, and may have lack of nothing.

Philippians 3:16

16 but to what we have come—by the same rule walk, the same thing think;

Titus 3:1-3

1 Remind them to be subject to principalities and authorities, to obey rule, unto every good work to be ready, 2 of no one to speak evil, not to be quarrelsome—gentle, showing all meekness to all men, 3 for we were once—also we—thoughtless, disobedient, led astray, serving desires and pleasures manifold, in malice and envy living, odious—hating one another;

Galatians 5:16-17

16 And I say: In the Spirit walk ye, and the desire of the flesh ye may not complete; 17 for the flesh doth desire contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit contrary to the flesh, and these are opposed one to another, that the things that ye may will—these ye may not do;

Galatians 5:15

15 and if one another ye do bite and devour, see—that ye may not by one another be consumed.
