Therefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speaking,
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
Therefore put away all filthiness and extreme wickedness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaks evil of his brother, and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law, and judges the law: but if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law, but a judge.
[A Psalm of David.] Fret not yourself because of evildoers, neither be you envious of the workers of iniquity.
And Saul was very angry, and the saying displeased him; and he said, They have ascribed unto David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed but thousands: and what can he have more but the kingdom?
Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputes not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.
Fret not yourself because of evil men, neither be you envious at the wicked;
In that day a man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made, each for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;
You shall defile also the covering of your graven images of silver, and the ornament of your molten images of gold: you shall cast them away as an unclean thing; you shall say unto them, Get away.
Cast away from you all your transgressions, by which you have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will you die, O house of Israel?
You hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of your own eye; and then shall you see clearly to cast out the speck out of your brother's eye.
Even so you also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt you me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
Either how can you say to your brother, Brother, let me pull out the speck that is in your eye, when you yourself behold not the beam that is in your own eye? you hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of your own eye, and then shall you see clearly to pull out the speck that is in your brother's eye.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you are as graves which are not seen, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.
In the meantime, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, so much that they tread one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
I have fed you with milk, and not with solid food: for until now you were not able to bear it, neither yet now are you able.
Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
Brethren, be not children in understanding: but in malice be children, but in understanding be men.
For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I wish, and that I shall be found unto you such as you desire not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, conceit, tumults:
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revelings, and such like: of which I tell you beforehand, as I have also told you in time past, that they who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
That you put off concerning the former way of life the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
Even so must their wives be serious, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things.
The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becomes holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
For we ourselves also were once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
Therefore seeing we also are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily ensnare us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
But if you have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, boast not, and lie not against the truth.
For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
Murmur not one against another, brethren, lest you be judged: behold, the judge stands before the door.
Since you know that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain manner of life received by tradition from your fathers;
As free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
In which they think it strange that you run not with them to the same excess of dissipation, speaking evil of you:
And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
