'Self' in the Bible
Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If any one desires to follow me, let him renounce self and take up his cross, and so be my follower.
Then calling to Him the crowd and also His disciples, He said to them, "If any one is desirous of following me, let him ignore self and take up his cross, and so be my follower.
And He said to all, "If any one is desirous of following me, let him ignore self and take up his cross day by day, and so be my follower.

For in my inmost self all my sympathy is with the Law of God;
with that new and better self which has been created to resemble God in the righteousness and holiness which come from the truth.
Do not speak falsehoods to one another, for you have stripped off the old self with its doings,
and have clothed yourselves with the new self which is being remoulded into full knowledge so as to become like Him who created it.
For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, profane. They will be disobedient to parents, thankless, irreligious,
I Paul write this with my own hand--I will pay you in full. (I say nothing of the fact that you owe me even your own self.)
The religious service which is pure and stainless in the sight of our God and Father is to visit fatherless children and widowed women in their time of trouble, and to keep one's own self unspotted from the world.
