THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Genesis (Author Moses)

4:7If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

34:11For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

11:31Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.

12:14A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompence of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.

24:11If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;

24:12If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

62:12Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

3:10Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

3:11Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

5:1Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:

5:2And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.

5:3And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard.

5:4What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?

5:5And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down:

5:6And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.

5:15And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled:

5:16But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.

24:2And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.

28:24Doth the plowman plow all day to sow? doth he open and break the clods of his ground?

28:25When he hath made plain the face thereof, doth he not cast abroad the fitches, and scatter the cummin, and cast in the principal wheat and the appointed barley and the rie in their place?

28:26For his God doth instruct him to discretion, and doth teach him.

28:27For the fitches are not threshed with a threshing instrument, neither is a cart wheel turned about upon the cummin; but the fitches are beaten out with a staff, and the cummin with a rod.

28:28Bread corn is bruised; because he will not ever be threshing it, nor break it with the wheel of his cart, nor bruise it with his horsemen.

59:18According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence.

Jeremiah (Author Jeremiah)

17:10I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

17:11As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool.

32:19Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings:

Ezekiel (Author Ezekiel)

7:3Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations.

7:4And mine eye shall not spare thee, neither will I have pity: but I will recompense thy ways upon thee, and thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

7:27The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with desolation, and the hands of the people of the land shall be troubled: I will do unto them after their way, and according to their deserts will I judge them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

9:4And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.

9:5And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:

9:6Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.

16:59For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even deal with thee as thou hast done, which hast despised the oath in breaking the covenant.

18:4Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

18:5But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right,

18:6And hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his neighbour's wife, neither hath come near to a menstruous woman,

18:7And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment;

18:8He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man,

18:9Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord GOD.

18:19Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live.

18:20The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

18:21But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.

18:22All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.

18:23Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?

18:24But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.

18:25Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal?

18:26When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die.

18:27Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.

18:28Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.

18:29Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of the Lord is not equal. O house of Israel, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal?

18:30Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.

18:31Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

18:32For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.

33:18When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.

33:19But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.

33:20Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. O ye house of Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways.

39:24According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.

Hosea (Author Hosea)

4:9And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.

12:2The LORD hath also a controversy with Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways; according to his doings will he recompense him.

Amos (Author Amos)

3:2You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.

Zechariah (Author Zechariah)

1:6But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my servants the prophets, did they not take hold of your fathers? and they returned and said, Like as the LORD of hosts thought to do unto us, according to our ways, and according to our doings, so hath he dealt with us.

Matthew (Author Matthew)

10:14And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

10:15Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

11:24But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.

12:37For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

21:33Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:

21:34And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

21:35And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.

21:36Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.

23:14Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

25:14For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.

25:15And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.

25:16Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.

25:17And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.

25:18But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.

25:19After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.

25:20And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.

25:21His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

25:22He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.

25:23His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

25:24Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:

25:25And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

25:26His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:

25:27Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

25:28Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

25:29For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

25:30And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mark (Author John Mark)

6:11And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

14:21The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born.

Luke (Author Luke)

9:5And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.

10:12But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.

10:13Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.

10:14But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you.

10:15And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell.

11:49Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:

11:50That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;

11:51From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.

12:47And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.

12:48But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

13:6He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.

13:7Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?

13:8And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:

13:9And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.

19:12He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.

19:13And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

19:14But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.

19:15And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.

19:16Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.

19:17And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.

19:18And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.

19:19And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.

19:20And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:

19:21For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.

19:22And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:

19:23Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?

19:24And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.

19:25(And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

19:26For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.

19:27But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

20:47Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.

21:1And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.

21:2And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.

21:3And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:

21:4For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

John (Author John)

3:19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

3:20For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

5:45Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.

9:41Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

12:48He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

15:22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.

15:24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.

Romans (Author Paul)

2:5But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;

2:6Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

2:7To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

2:8But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,

2:9Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;

2:10But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:

2:11For there is no respect of persons with God.

2:12For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;

2:27And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law?

1 Corinthians (Author Paul)

3:8Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.

3:12Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

3:13Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

3:14If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.

3:15If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

4:5Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

2 Corinthians (Author Paul)

2:15For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:

2:16To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?

11:15Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Galatians (Author Paul)

6:5For every man shall bear his own burden.

6:6Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.

6:7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

6:8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

6:9And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

6:10As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

Ephesians (Author Paul)

6:7With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:

6:8Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.

Colossians (Author Paul)

3:25But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

1 Timothy (Author Paul)

1:13Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

2 Timothy (Author Paul)

4:14Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:

Hebrews (Author Paul)

2:2For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;

2:3How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

10:26For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

10:27But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

10:28He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:

10:29Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

10:30For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

12:25See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:

James (Author James)

2:12So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.

2:13For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.

1 Peter (Author Peter)

1:17And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:

2 Peter (Author Peter)

2:20For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

2:21For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

Revelation (Author John)

2:23And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

20:12And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

20:13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
