ADAMIC SIN NATURE
v26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…
V27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” [Note: Spirit, Soul (mind, will, emotion), Body.]
v28 “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
v29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seeds; to you it shall be for meat.
v30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
v31 And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”
v7 “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
v8 And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
v9 And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.”
v15 “And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
v16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
v17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
v18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.”
v21 “And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
v22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
v23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
v24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall
cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
v25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”
v1 “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
v2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden;
v3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
v4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
v5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
v6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
v7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked, and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
v8 And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.
v9 And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
v10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
v11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
v12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest me to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
v13 And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
v14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou are cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
v15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
v16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
v17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded
thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
v18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat of the herb of the field;
v19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shall thou return.
v20 And Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.
v21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
v22 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever:
v23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the Garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
v24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.”
v1 “And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.
v2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
v3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
v4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offerings:
v5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
v6 And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? And why is thy countenance fallen?
v7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? And doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
v8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
v9 And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?
v10 And he said, What has thou done? The voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.
v11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;
v12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shall thou be in the earth.”
v13 “And Cain said unto the Lord, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
v14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.
v15 And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
v16 And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.”
v25 “And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
v26 And to Seth, to him also there was bon a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord.”
v18 “And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch:
v19 And Jared lived after he begat Enoch nine hundred sixty and two years: and he died.
v20 And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years:
and he died.
v21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:
v22 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
v23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:
v24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.”
Genesis 6:3, 5-7
v3 “And the Lord said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
v5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
v6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
v7 And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.”
Genesis 6:8-9, 11-14a
v8 “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
v9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.”
v11 “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
v12 And God looked upon the earth, and behold, it was corrupt for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
v13 And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
v14a Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark…”
v17 “And, behold, I even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and everything that is in the earth shall die.
v18 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee.
v19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.
v20 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.
v21 And take them unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.
v22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.”
v15 “And God spake unto Noah, saying,
v16 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons’ wives with thee.
v17 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.
v18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him:
v19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.
v20 And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
v21 And the Lord smelled a sweet savor; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground anymore for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more everything living, as I have done.
v22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”
Genesis 9:1, 6-9, 11-17
v9:1 “And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.”
v6 “Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
v7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
v8 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,
v9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;”
v11 “And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there anymore be a flood to destroy the earth.
v12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:
v13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
v14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
v15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
v16 And the bow shall be in the cloud: and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every
living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.”
Genesis 10:1, 32
v1 “Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.”
v32 “These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.”
v1 “And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
v2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
v3 And they said one to another, God to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.
v4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
v5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
v6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
v7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.
v8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and thy left off to build the city.
v9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.”
v1 “Now the Lord had said unto Abraham, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
v2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
v3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
v4 So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him…”
v1 “And it came to pass after these things, that God did test Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.
v2 And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.
v3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place
of which God had told him.
v4 Then on the third day Abraham lifter up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.
v5 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.
v6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.
v7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
v8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
v9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
v10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
v11 And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
v12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad; neither do thou anything unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.
v13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind
him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a bunt offering in the stead of his son.
v14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-Jireh (The Lord will provide): as it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.
v15 And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,
v16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:
v17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
v18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou has obeyed my voice.”
v4 “And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
v5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statures, and my laws.”
“God hath made of one blood all nations of men, for to dwell in all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitations.”
v1 “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
v2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
v3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
v4 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.
v5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
v6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
v7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
v8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
v9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
v10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
v11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
v12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
v13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
v14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
v15 What then? Shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
v16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
v17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
v18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
v19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
v20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.
v21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.
v22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
v23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
v1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to them, which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
v2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
v3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh.
v4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
v5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
v6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
v7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
v8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
v9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his,
v10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
v11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your moral bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
v12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
v13 For if ye love after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
v14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
v15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
v16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
v17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with
Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
v18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not
worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
v19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
v20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope.
v21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
v22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
v23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
v24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
v25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
v26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
v27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
v28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
v29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
v30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
v31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
v32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
v33 Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
v34 Who is he that condemeth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
v35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
v36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
v37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
v38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, or principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
v39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
v1 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
v2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mid, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
“But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.”
v1“And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
v2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that
now worketh in the children of disobedience:
v3 Among who also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind;
and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
v4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
v5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved).
v6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
v7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
v8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
v9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
v10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
v7 “But to every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
v8 Wherefore he saith, when he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
v9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
v10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all
heavens, that he might fill all things.)
v11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
v12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
v13 Till we all come in the unity of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
v14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
v15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
v16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
v17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
v18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
v19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
v20 But ye have not so learned Christ;
v21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:”
v22 “That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old men, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
v23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
v24 And that ye put on the new man which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
v25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another.
v26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
v27 Neither give place to the devil.
v28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
v29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
v30 And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
v31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
v32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”
v6 “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
v7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
v8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
v9 For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the God head bodily
v10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.
v11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
v12 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.
v13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
v14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
v15 And having spoiled principalities and powers he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”
v1 “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
v2 Set you affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
v3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
v4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
v5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
v6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
v7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
v8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
v9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
v10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
v11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
v12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
v13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
v14 And above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfectness.
v15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
v16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual song, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
v17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
v18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
v19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
v20 Children, obey your parents in all things; for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.
v21 Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
v22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eye service, as men pleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God.
v23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
v24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
v25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done; and there is no respect of persons.
I Peter 2:24
“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose strips ye were healed.”
II Peter 1:1-21
v1 “Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Savior Jesus Christ:
v2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of our Savior Jesus Christ:
v3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
v4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having
escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
v5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
v6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
v7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness love.
v8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
v9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
v10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
v11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
v12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.
v13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;
v14 Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.
v15 Moreover I will endeavor that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.
V16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
v17 For he received from God the Father honor and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory; This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
v18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
v19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
v20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
v21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”
