Ye … as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house. – Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. – Your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own. For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. – What agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. – Ye … are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: in whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. – Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
Jesus, … that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.
[Jesus] said, … Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while. – The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast. – Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. – Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. – Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God.
I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: according as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will.
We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son. … Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the Lord hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted. – Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. – The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him. – My soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God. – We … joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. – I will joy in the God of my salvation.
Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
You hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, … among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind.
According to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior.
My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. – An inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you. – Here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.
This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. – Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. – Yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
We which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
When the children of Israel cried unto the Lord, the Lord raised them up a deliverer, Ehud, … a man lefthanded. … After him was Shamgar, … which slew of the Philistines six hundred men with an ox goad: and he also delivered Israel.
The Lord looked upon [Gideon], and said, Go in this thy might, … have not I sent thee? … And he said unto him, O my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.
The Lord said unto Gideon, The people that are with thee are too many for me, … lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me.
Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. – My brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Fear thou not, … saith the Lord: for I am with thee; … I will not make a full end of thee, but correct thee in measure. – For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee. In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer. … For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee. O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.
I will bear the indignation of the Lord, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness.
God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. – As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. – The Father … hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: in whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.
Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. – Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. … Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
