10:10And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

26:2Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.

26:8Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O LORD, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee.

26:9With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

32:17And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.

35:8And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

51:7Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.

52:1Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.

52:11Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the LORD.

5:30And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

12:33Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

Luke (Author Luke)

1:74That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,

1:75In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.

John (Author John)

1:47Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!

4:14But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

5:14Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

6:35And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

15:19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

17:23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

Acts (Author Luke)

24:16And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men.

Romans (Author Paul)

2:28For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

2:29But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

6:1What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

6:2God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

6:3Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

6:4Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

6:5For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:

6:6Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

6:7For he that is dead is freed from sin.

6:8Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:

6:9Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

6:10For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

6:11Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

6:12Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

6:13Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

6:14For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

6:15What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

6:16Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

6:17But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

6:18Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

6:19I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.

6:20For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

6:21What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.

6:22But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

6:23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

7:4Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.

7:6But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

8:1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

8:4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

8:12Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

11:16For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

12:2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

12:9Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

13:12The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

13:13Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.

13:14But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

14:17For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

16:19For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.

1 Corinthians (Author Paul)

3:16Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

3:17If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

5:7Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

6:12All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

6:13Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

6:19What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

6:20For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

7:23Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.

8:12But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.

10:21Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.

10:31Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

10:32Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:

12:31But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

15:34Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.

2 Corinthians (Author Paul)

6:14Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

6:15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

6:16And 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.

6:17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

7:1Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

10:3For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

10:5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

11:2For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

13:7Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates.

13:8For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.

Galatians (Author Paul)

2:17But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid.

5:22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

5:23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

5:24And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

5:25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

6:15For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

Ephesians (Author Paul)

1:4According 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:

1:13In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

1:14Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

2:21In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

2:22In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

4:20But ye have not so learned Christ;

4:21If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:

4:22That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

4:23And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

4:24And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

5:1Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

5:3But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

5:8For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

5:9(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

5:10Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

5:11And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

Philippians (Author Paul)

1:10That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;

1:11Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

2:15That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

4:8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Colossians (Author Paul)

1:22In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

3:5Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

3:6For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

3:7In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

3:8But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

3:9Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

3:10And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

3:12Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

3:13Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

3:14And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

3:15And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

1 Thessalonians (Author Paul)

2:12That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.

3:13To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.

4:3For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:

4:4That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

4:7For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

5:5Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

5:22Abstain from all appearance of evil.

5:23And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Thessalonians (Author Paul)

2:13But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

1 Timothy (Author Paul)

1:5Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:

4:8For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

4:12Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

5:22Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure.

6:6But godliness with contentment is great gain.

6:11But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

6:12Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

2 Timothy (Author Paul)

2:16But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

2:17And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;

2:19Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

2:21If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.

2:22Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

3:17That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Titus (Author Paul)

1:15Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

2:9Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again;

2:10Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.

2:12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

Hebrews (Author Paul)

4:3For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

4:9There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

10:22Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

12:1Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

12:10For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

12:14Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

12:15Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;

13:9Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.

James (Author James)

1:21Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

1:27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

3:17But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

4:4Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

1 Peter (Author Peter)

1:14As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:

1:15But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

1:16Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

2:1Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,

2:5Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

2:9But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

2:11Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

2:12Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

2:24Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

3:11Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.

4:1Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

4:2That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

4:6For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

4:7But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

2 Peter (Author Peter)

1:2Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

1:3According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

1:4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

1:5And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

1:6And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

1:7And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

1:8For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

3:11Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

3:12Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

3:14Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

1 John (Author John)

1:6If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

1:7But 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.

2:1My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

2:5But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

2:29If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

3:3And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

3:6Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.

3:7Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.

3:8He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

3:9Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

3:10In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

5:4For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

5:5Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

5:18We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

5:21Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

2 John (Author John)

1:4I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.

3 John (Author John)

1:11Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.

Revelation (Author John)

14:4These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.

14:5And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

18:4And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

19:8And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
