"There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death."
"Judge not, that ye be not judged." "For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again."
"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:" "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."
"And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan;" And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there. "The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?" "And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female," "And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?" "Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder." "They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?" "He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so." "And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
"Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God."
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
"If ye love me, keep my commandments."
"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."
"But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:" "To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God." "And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries." "But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women." "Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done." "Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:" "Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:" (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) "Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost." "And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money," "Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost." "But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money." Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. "Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee." "For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity." "Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the LORD for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me."
"And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert." "And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship," "Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet." "Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot." "And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?" "And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him." "The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:" In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. "And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?" "Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus." "And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?" "And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God." "And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him." "And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing."
"And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;" "That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:" "For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring." "Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device." And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
"And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples," "He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost." "And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism." "Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus." "When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus."
"And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight."
"And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord."
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
"What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?" "God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?" "Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?" "Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life." "For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:"
"Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?" "For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband." "So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man." "Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God." "For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death." "But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter."
"Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved." "For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge." "For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God." For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. "For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them." "But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)" "Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)" "But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;" "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. "For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed." For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? "And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!" "But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?" "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." "But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world." "But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you." "But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me." "But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people."
Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.
"Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment."
"But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway."
"For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints." Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. "And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church." What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only? "If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord." "But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant." "Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues." Let all things be done decently and in order.
For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: "Not of works, lest any man should boast."
"There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;" "One Lord, one faith, one baptism," "One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all."
"Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;"
"Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead." "And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;"
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" "That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."
"In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;"
"Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God." "But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin." "For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;"
"What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?" "If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food," "And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?" "Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone." "Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works." "Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble." "But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?" "Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?" "Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?" "And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God." "Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only." "Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?" "For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also."
"The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:"
"Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,"
"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."
"Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time."
"Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son."
"Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son."
"The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:"
"Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life."
"And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand."

"But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased."
