I am Jehovah thy God, who have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them; for I, Jehovah thy God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons to the third and to the fourth generation of them that hate me, and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments. Thou shalt not idly utter the name of Jehovah thy God; for Jehovah will not hold him guiltless that idly uttereth his name. Remember the sabbath day to hallow it. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work; but the seventh day is the sabbath of Jehovah thy God: thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy bondman, nor thy handmaid, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates. For in six days Jehovah made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore Jehovah blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Psalm 15:1-5

{A Psalm of David.} Jehovah, who shall sojourn in thy tent? who shall dwell in the hill of thy holiness? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth from his heart. He that slandereth not with his tongue, doeth not evil to his companion, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour;read more.
In whose eyes the depraved person is contemned, and who honoureth them that fear Jehovah; who, if he have sworn to his own hurt, changeth it not; He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

Proverbs 12:2

A good man obtaineth favour of Jehovah; but a man of mischievous devices will he condemn.

Proverbs 10:1-31

The Proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father; but a foolish son is the grief of his mother. Treasures of wickedness profit nothing; but righteousness delivereth from death. Jehovah suffereth not the soul of the righteous man to famish; but he repelleth the craving of the wicked.read more.
He cometh to want that dealeth with a slack hand; but the hand of the diligent maketh rich. He that gathereth in summer is a wise son; he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame. Blessings are upon the head of a righteous man; but the mouth of the wicked covereth violence. The memory of the righteous man shall be blessed; but the name of the wicked shall rot. The wise in heart receiveth commandments; but a prating fool shall fall. He that walketh in integrity walketh securely; but he that perverteth his ways shall be known. He that winketh with the eye causeth grief, and a prating fool shall fall. The mouth of a righteous man is a fountain of life; but the mouth of the wicked covereth violence. Hatred stirreth up strifes; but love covereth all transgressions. In the lips of an intelligent man wisdom is found; but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding. The wise lay up knowledge; but the mouth of the fool is near destruction. The rich man's wealth is his strong city; the destruction of the poor is their poverty. The labour of a righteous man tendeth to life; the revenue of a wicked man, to sin. Keeping instruction is the path to life; but he that forsaketh reproof goeth astray. He that covereth hatred hath lying lips, and he that sendeth forth a slander is a fool. In the multitude of words there wanteth not transgression; but he that restraineth his lips doeth wisely. The tongue of the righteous man is as choice silver; the heart of the wicked is little worth. The lips of a righteous man feed many; but fools die for want of understanding. The blessing of Jehovah, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow to it. It is as sport to a foolish man to do wickedness; but a man of understanding hath wisdom. The fear of a wicked man, it shall come upon him; but the desire of the righteous shall be granted. As a whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more; but the righteous is an everlasting foundation. As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him. The fear of Jehovah prolongeth days; but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. The hope of the righteous is joy; but the expectation of the wicked shall perish. The way of Jehovah is strength to the perfect man, but destruction to the workers of iniquity. The righteous man shall never be moved; but the wicked shall not inhabit the land. The mouth of a righteous man putteth forth wisdom; but the froward tongue shall be cut out.

Matthew 5:21-24

Ye have heard that it was said to the ancients, Thou shalt not kill; but whosoever shall kill shall be subject to the judgment. But I say unto you, that every one that is lightly angry with his brother shall be subject to the judgment; but whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be subject to be called before the sanhedrim; but whosoever shall say, Fool, shall be subject to the penalty of the hell of fire. If therefore thou shouldest offer thy gift at the altar, and there shouldest remember that thy brother has something against thee,read more.
leave there thy gift before the altar, and first go, be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

Galatians 2:15-16

We, Jews by nature, and not sinners of the nations, but knowing that a man is not justified on the principle of works of law nor but by the faith of Jesus Christ, we also have believed on Christ Jesus, that we might be justified on the principle of the faith of Christ; and not of works of law; because on the principle of works of law no flesh shall be justified.

James 2:14-19

What is the profit, my brethren, if any one say he have faith, but have not works? can faith save him? Now if a brother or a sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one from amongst you say to them, Go in peace, be warmed and filled; but give not to them the needful things for the body, what is the profit?read more.
So also faith, if it have not works, is dead by itself. But some one will say, Thou hast faith and I have works. Shew me thy faith without works, and I from my works will shew thee my faith. Thou believest that God is one. Thou doest well. The demons even believe, and tremble.

2 Peter 1:5-11

But for this very reason also, using therewith all diligence, in your faith have also virtue, in virtue knowledge, in knowledge temperance, in temperance endurance, in endurance godliness, in godliness brotherly love, in brotherly love love:read more.
for these things existing and abounding in you make you to be neither idle nor unfruitful as regards the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ; for he with whom these things are not present is blind, short-sighted, and has forgotten the purging of his former sins. Wherefore the rather, brethren, use diligence to make your calling and election sure, for doing these things ye will never fall; for thus shall the entrance into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ be richly furnished unto you.

Matthew 7:16-20

By their fruits ye shall know them. Do men gather a bunch of grapes from thorns, or from thistles figs? So every good tree produces good fruits, but the worthless tree produces bad fruits. A good tree cannot produce bad fruits, nor a worthless tree produce good fruits.read more.
Every tree not producing good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire. By their fruits then surely ye shall know them.

Luke 6:43-45

For there is no good tree which produces corrupt fruit, nor a corrupt tree which produces good fruit; for every tree is known by its own fruit, for figs are not gathered from thorns, nor grapes vintaged from a bramble. The good man, out of the good treasure of his heart, brings forth good; and the wicked man out of the wicked, brings forth what is wicked: for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

Matthew 7:24-25

Whoever therefore hears these my words and does them, I will liken him to a prudent man, who built his house upon the rock; and the rain came down, and the streams came, and the winds blew and fell upon that house, and it did not fall, for it had been founded upon the rock.

Luke 6:47-48

Every one that comes to me, and hears my words and does them, I will shew you to whom he is like. He is like a man building a house, who dug and went deep, and laid a foundation on the rock; but a great rain coming, the stream broke upon that house, and could not shake it, for it had been founded on the rock.

Romans 6:11-14

So also ye, reckon yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body to obey its lusts. Neither yield your members instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but yield yourselves to God as alive from among the dead, and your members instruments of righteousness to God.read more.
For sin shall not have dominion over you, for ye are not under law but under grace.

Romans 6:2

Far be the thought. We who have died to sin, how shall we still live in it?

Ephesians 4:22-24

namely your having put off according to the former conversation the old man which corrupts itself according to the deceitful lusts; and being renewed in the spirit of your mind; and your having put on the new man, which according to God is created in truthful righteousness and holiness.

1 Thessalonians 5:5-8

for all ye are sons of light and sons of day; we are not of night nor of darkness. So then do not let us sleep as the rest do, but let us watch and be sober; for they that sleep sleep by night, and they that drink drink by night;read more.
