But those who are not his children acted corruptly against him; they are a defective and perverted generation.
whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways,
The conduct of a guilty man is perverse, but the behavior of the pure is upright.
But for those who choose their own devious paths, the LORD will lead them away, along with those who practice evil. Peace be upon Israel. A Song of Ascents
What is crooked cannot be made straight; what is not there cannot be counted.
The person whose mind is perverse does not find good, and anyone with perverted speech falls into trouble.
Whoever lives blamelessly will be delivered, but whoever is perverted will fall without warning.
Someone whose conduct is upright fears the LORD, but whoever is devious in his ways despises him.
Devious minds are abhorrent to the LORD, but those whose ways are innocent are his delight.
2 Samuel 22:27
In the company of the pure you demonstrate your purity. In the company of the perverted you will appear to be perverse.
to the pure, you show yourself pure, and to the morally corrupt, you appear to be perverse.
It's better to be poor and live a blameless life than to be rich but crooked in one's lifestyle.
A poor man who walks blamelessly is better than a fool who speaks perversely.
Everything I have to say is just; there isn't anything corrupt or perverse in my speech.
Jesus replied, "You unbelieving and perverted generation! How long must I be with you? How long must I put up with you? Bring him here to me!"
Jesus answered, "You unbelieving and perverted generation! How much longer must I be with you and put up with you? Bring your son here!"
so that you may be blameless and innocent, God's children without any faults among a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine like stars in the world
For you know that a person like this is corrupt and keeps on sinning, being self-condemned.
Every valley will be filled, and every mountain and hill will be leveled. The crooked ways will be made straight, and the rough roads will be made smooth.
