Now when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him,
“I am God Almighty;
Walk before Me, and be blameless.
For I am the Lord your God. Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am holy. And you shall not make yourselves unclean with any of the swarming things that swarm on the earth.
“Speak to all the congregation of the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy.
Thus you are to be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy; and I have set you apart from the peoples to be Mine.
There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job; and that man was blameless, upright, fearing God and turning away from evil.
Mark the blameless man, and behold the upright;
For the man of peace will have a posterity.
Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
2 Corinthians 7:1
Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
2 Corinthians 13:9
For we rejoice when we ourselves are weak but you are strong; this we also pray for, that you be made complete.
Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ.
Epaphras, who is one of your number, a bondslave of Jesus Christ, sends you his greetings, always laboring earnestly for you in his prayers, that you may stand perfect and fully assured in all the will of God.
And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
1 Peter 1:15
but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior;
Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles—
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children;
1 John 3:3
And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.
