The LORD (Jehovah) God made the earth and the heavens. … Sovereign Lord (Adonai).
The blessing of the Lord be upon you; we bless you in the name of the Lord. … The Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore. … So will I save you, and you will be a blessing. Do not be afraid, but let your hands be strong.
Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again. … Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! … Born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. … Through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
Prophets and priests alike, all practice deceit. … Their mouths speak of love, but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain. … Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.
A scoundrel and villain, who goes about with a corrupt mouth, who winks with his eye, signals with his feet and motions with his fingers, who plots evil with deceit in his heart—he always stirs up dissension. Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant; he will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy.
Whoever refreshes others will be refreshed. … The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor. … They who give to the poor will lack nothing, but they who close their eyes to them receives many curses.
Be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.
Just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” … Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did. … So I say, walk by the Spirit, and … walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice
And you will know that I am the LORD, for you have not followed my decrees or kept my laws but have conformed to the standards of the nations around you. … We have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws.
The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. If you worship me, it will all be yours.”
