Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.
Marriage must be respected by all, and the marriage bed kept undefiled, because God will judge immoral people and adulterers.
For from within, out of people’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immoralities, thefts, murders,
but instead we should write to them to abstain from things polluted by idols, from sexual immorality,
from eating anything that has been strangled, and from blood.
1 Corinthians 5:1
It is widely reported that there is sexual immorality
among you, and the kind of sexual immorality that is not even tolerated among the Gentiles —a man is living with his father’s wife.
1 Corinthians 6:15
Don’t you know that your bodies are a part of Christ’s body?
So should I take a part of Christ’s body and make it part of a prostitute? Absolutely not!
1 Corinthians 10:8
Let us not commit sexual immorality
as some of them did, and in a single day 23,000 people fell dead.
2 Corinthians 12:21
I fear that when I come my God will again
humiliate me in your presence, and I will grieve for many who sinned before and have not repented of the moral impurity, sexual immorality, and promiscuity they practiced.

and any impurity or greed should not even be heard of among you, as is proper for saints.
Therefore, put to death what belongs to your worldly nature:
sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desire, and greed, which is idolatry.
1 Thessalonians 4:3
For this is God’s will,
your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality,
But I have this against you: You tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and teaches and deceives My slaves to commit sexual immorality and to eat meat sacrificed to idols.
But the cowards, unbelievers,
vile, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars—their share will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.
Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.”
So he said, “Isn’t he rightly named Jacob?
For he has cheated me twice now. He took my birthright, and look, now he has taken my blessing.” Then he asked, “Haven’t you saved a blessing for me?”
