THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Genesis (Author Moses)

8:21And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

6:5And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

6:6And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

6:7And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

6:11The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

6:12And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

6:13And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

8:21And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

Deuteronomy (Author Moses)

32:10He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.

2 Chronicles (Author Compiled by Isaiah and Ezra from records of Nathan, Gad, Iddo, Ahijah, Jehu and others.)

6:36If they sin against thee, (for there is no man which sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them over before their enemies, and they carry them away captives unto a land far off or near;

Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

4:17Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?

4:18Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly:

4:19How much less in them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation is in the dust, which are crushed before the moth?

9:2I know it is so of a truth: but how should man be just with God?

9:3If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand.

9:20If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.

9:29If I be wicked, why then labour I in vain?

9:30If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean;

11:12For vain man would be wise, though man be born like a wild ass's colt.

14:4Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.

15:14What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?

15:15Behold, he putteth no trust in his saints; yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight.

15:16How much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinketh iniquity like water?

25:4How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?

25:5Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight.

25:6How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?

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

5:9For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

14:1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

14:2The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

14:3They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

51:5Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

53:1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.

53:2God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.

53:3Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

58:1Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?

58:2Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.

58:3The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

58:4Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;

58:5Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.

94:11The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.

130:3If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?

143:2And enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight shall no man living be justified.

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

10:20The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth.

20:6Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?

20:9Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?

21:8The way of man is froward and strange: but as for the pure, his work is right.

Ecclesiastes (Author Solomon)

7:20For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

7:29Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.

8:11Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

9:3This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all: yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

1:5Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

1:6From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.

42:6I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

42:7To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

43:8Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears.

48:8Yea, thou heardest not; yea, thou knewest not; yea, from that time that thine ear was not opened: for I knew that thou wouldest deal very treacherously, and wast called a transgressor from the womb.

51:1Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the LORD: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.

53:6All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

64:6But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Jeremiah (Author Jeremiah)

2:22For though thou wash thee with nitre, and take thee much soap, yet thine iniquity is marked before me, saith the Lord GOD.

2:29Wherefore will ye plead with me? ye all have transgressed against me, saith the LORD.

6:7As a fountain casteth out her waters, so she casteth out her wickedness: violence and spoil is heard in her; before me continually is grief and wounds.

13:23Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.

16:12And ye have done worse than your fathers; for, behold, ye walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not hearken unto me:

17:9The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Ezekiel (Author Ezekiel)

16:6And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.

36:25Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

36:26A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

37:1The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,

37:2And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.

37:3And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.

Hosea (Author Hosea)

6:7But they like men have transgressed the covenant: there have they dealt treacherously against me.

14:9Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

Micah (Author Micah)

7:2The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net.

7:3That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up.

7:4The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen and thy visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity.

Matthew (Author Matthew)

7:17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

12:34O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

12:35A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

15:19For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

Mark (Author John Mark)

7:21For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,

7:22Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:

7:23All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

Luke (Author Luke)

1:79To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

John (Author John)

1:10He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

1:11He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

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.

8:23And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

14:17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

Acts (Author Luke)

8:23For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.

Romans (Author Paul)

2:1Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.

3:9What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;

3:10As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

3:11There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

3:12They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

3:13Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:

3:14Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:

3:15Their feet are swift to shed blood:

3:16Destruction and misery are in their ways:

3:17And the way of peace have they not known:

3:18There is no fear of God before their eyes.

3:19Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

3:23For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

5:6For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

5:12Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

5:13(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.

5:14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.

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.

6:17But 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.

6:19I 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.

7:5For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.

7:11For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me.

7:13Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.

7:14For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

7:15For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

7:18For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.

7:19For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

7:20Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

7:21I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.

7:23But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

7:25I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

8:5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

8:6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

8:7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

8:8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

8:13For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

11:32For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.

1 Corinthians (Author Paul)

2:14But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

3:3For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

5:9I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:

5:10Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.

2 Corinthians (Author Paul)

3:4And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:

3:5Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

5:14For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:

Galatians (Author Paul)

3:10For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

3:11But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

3:22But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.

5:17For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

5:19Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

5:20Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

5:21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Ephesians (Author Paul)

2:1And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

2:2Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

2:3Among 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; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

2:11Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

2:12That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

4:17This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,

4:18Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

4:19Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

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

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

5:14Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

Colossians (Author Paul)

1:13Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

1:21And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled

2:13And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

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

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

2 Timothy (Author Paul)

2:26And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

Titus (Author Paul)

3:3For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

James (Author James)

3:2For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.

4:5Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?

1 Peter (Author Peter)

1:18Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

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:

2:25For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

1 John (Author John)

1:8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

1:10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

2:16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

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.

5:19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

Revelation (Author John)

3:17Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
