1 Timothy 4:12
Let no one despise thy youth, but be a model of the believers, in word, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.
They do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry:
Let not him that eats make little of him that eats not; and let not him that eats not judge him that eats: for God has received him.
He that despiseth his neighbour is void of heart; but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.
He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth; but he that is gracious to the afflicted, happy is he.
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;
A man is commended according to his wisdom; but he that is of a perverted heart shall be despised.
No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and will love the other, or he will hold to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and will love the other, or he will cleave to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
And they opened their mouth wide against me; they said, Aha! aha! our eye hath seen it.
Let them turn back because of their shame that say, Aha! Aha!
Let them be desolate, because of their shame, that say unto me, Aha! Aha!
Deliver me from all my transgressions; make me not the reproach of the foolish.
